Former sexy actress and 2016 senatorial candidate Alma Moreno probably had her most embarrassing and awkward interview in her life as ANC’s Headstart host Karen Davila grilled her about her platforms and plans if elected as a senator in 2016.
The interview started with Moreno answering why she decided to run for senator, her qualifications, and the challenges of being a political aspirant as a former sexy actress. But things suddenly turned awkward and somehow painful to watch when Davila started asking her about the country’s biggest issues.
Davila: If you won a Senate seat, what would be your advocacy in the Senate?
Moreno: More on sa kababaihan.
Davila: Like what?
Moreno: Boses ng kababaihan… Magna Carta of Women…
Davila: But then the law exists already.
Moreno: Pero may mga bagay na di na-implement.
Davila: Like what? I want to hear it.
Moreno: Teka muna.
Moreno looked completely lost as Davila continued to ask her about RH Bill saying that she is Pro RH Bill but has reservations about it. Moreno seems she didn’t have a full grasp of the questions that Davila had to translate ‘reservations’ into Filipino and cite examples of the controversies about the bill.
Davila: “So ang sabi mo kasi ito, para ako sa RH Law with reservations, ang ibig mo sabihin, gusto ko ng RH Law pero mayroong mga bagay sa batas na hindi ko gaanong gusto.Ang tanong ko, ano ang hindi mo gusto sa RH Law? Kasi naging controversial ang RH Law, umakyat sa Korte Suprema. May apat na bahagi dun o tatlo, na hindi sinang-ayunan ng Korte Suprema, ano sa RH Law ang ayaw mo o gusto mo?
Moreno: “Ahh…teka nawawala ako. Hindi ko pa napag-, actually hindi pa ako nag-, napupunta doon”.
Before Davila queues for commercial break, Moreno laughed and quipped “Pinagpawisan ako…” which Davila responded “madali lang naman kasi ang mga showbiz interviews…”
The interview received mostly negative reactions with most netizens saying it was painful to watch and Moreno should not run for senator anymore.
