For one, Evelyn denied that Shalani dated Valenzuela Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian.
She maintained: "Even before and pagkatapos, there is no relation between Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian [and Shalani]. May I say this, kung maririnig mo ako mayor, maraming salamat sa pagtingin mo na maganda sa anak ko. You're a decent guy and we have respected you so much."
The mother also disputed talk that her daughter and her first boyfriend have a love child. "No, wala pong anak ang Shalani ko."
When asked about Aquino, Evelyn has only good words for the 50-year-old President.
She said she believes that the 2 loved and respected each other.
"Ang pinakita naman niya sa amin taong tao. We welcome him and I feel naman na mahal niya si Shalani that's why minahal namin siya… [Pero] it's not meant to be," she said.
