Grace Poe Appreciates Lovi Poe’s SupportGrace Poe, one of the senatorial candidates for the upcoming May elections, has expressed her gratitude and appreciation over the simple gestures of half sister Lovi Poe. The daughter of the late Fernando Poe Jr and movie queen Susan Roces said she is truly happy about how Lovi expresses support on her candidacy, even if she did not ask her to do so.
Grace also cleared some misconceptions and rumors about a supposed animosity between her and Lovi. There were intrigues that they currently have a feud because the latter does not show her support to Grace’s candidacy. When asked about this issue by the movie press, Grace immediately denied it.
She said she is not that close to Lovi now probably because of their big age difference. But she recounts that whenever they see each other, Lovi shows her warmth towards her.
Grace disclosed that she did not ask Lovi to campaign for her senatorial bid. However, Lovi voluntarily offered her support. Grace said she was touched when Lovi reached out to her to commit her help through Twitter. Lovi was also quoted as saying that she intends to go out with her campaign team. But Grace plans to include Lovi in her campaign team on the last phase of the trail.
She also recounts another instance when Lovi demonstrated her nice gesture towards her candidacy. Lovi accidentally bumped with one of her staff in Rockwell. When the actress saw the staff’s baller band containing Grace’s name, she immediately asked for some, wore one, and have its picture taken to be posted at Twitter.
Grace Poe is one of the stronger candidates in the senatorial race. In the recent surveys released, she has been consistently ranking within the top 12 roster of candidates who are more likely to win.
There have been speculations that Susan Roces is not yet in good terms with Lovi. Some insiders think that Roces is still yet to talk seriously with the young actress. There were instances in the past when people close to Roces questioned Lovi’s statements that she was close to her dad, the late FPJ. According to those people, FPJ did not spend much time with Lovi for them to be close.
Lovi is one of the two known lovechildren of the late action star. However, the other love child, a man who tried entering show business years ago but failed, was said to be in good terms with Roces. FPJ died in 2004 in an abrupt cause that was supposedly brought about by his depression from his loss in the presidential elections that same year. Meanwhile, it is a common knowledge that Grace is an adopted daughter of FPJ and Roces.
