Heart Evangelista Fights For Boyfriend Senator Chiz Escudero Because He's 'Worth It'Heart Evangelista has matured enough throughout the years to fight for her boyfriend Senator Chiz Escudero.
Evangelista's parents are against Escudero. They even staged a press conference to let the couple know they don't agree with their relationship.
But Evangelista chose to side with her boyfriend.
When asked if he is worth fighting for, Evangelista said "oo, sobra."
But if they don't end up together, the actress said it's okay because "that's life."
“Kung mali, mali. Wala naman talagang puwedeng ipilit."
She has gone through the same road before when her parents also didn't approve of ex-flame Jericho Rosales.
“I’ve been down this road before and there’s no certainty."
“You’re with someone and you fight for someone because you believe that this person is good for you and you’re good for that person too.”
She said she learned a lot of things in her past relationship because she let go when it is already becoming hard for her.
“But you know, there’ll come a person in your life that, you know, I’ll try very hard because I want this to work.”
Evangelista cannot say what the future holds for them--if her parents, especially her mother, will be able to accept the senator.
She explained that her mother, Cecile Ongpauco, has a very strong personality.
"When she believes in things, she just believes on that."
“But you know, I guess, that’s why I was made na parang my own person and we just don’t believe on the same thing.”
Evangelista said she is still "mourning" now because of what happened between her and her parents.
However, she said she needs to fulfill her personal and professional obligations.
She is also worried about her father since she is closest to him.
Evangelista added she was hurt by the negative comments hurled against her mother.
She said she understands why they acted that way and where they were coming from, so there's no need for people to bash her parents.
“But when I hear things about my mom, I still feel bad. Siyempre, she’s my mom and I feel embarrassed for her.”
