Vic-Pauleen’s rocky path to the altar By: Allan Policarpio @alpolicarpio Philippine Daily Inquirer
12:10 AM February 3rd, 2016


MR. AND MRS. Vic Sotto photos by Metro Photography

Their lips met not without a little humor. Before lifting the veil of his bride (Pauleen Luna), the groom (Vic Sotto) turned his gaze to the people inside the church, and pulled a face. He dabbed his wife’s lips with a finger, and tasted it, sending the couple into a fit of giggles. Then, at last, the TV host-comedian leaned forward for the kiss, with the crowd erupting into cheers.

The embrace that followed, however, was different. It was long and touching, with Vic and Pauleen patting each other’s backs and mouthing the words, “I love you,” as the song “When I Fall in Love” came on. Vic, who’s usually reserved, was misty-eyed after, fanning his eyes with his hand to hold back the tears.

It was, the couple related, one of the wedding’s most “emotional moments”—one that had memories flooding back. “When we hugged, the years flashed back, everything we’ve been through,” Pauleen, looking radiant in her Francis Libiran gown, told reporters, more than an hour after they tied the knot at St. James the Great Parish in Muntinlupa City, last Saturday.

The path to the altar was, undoubtedly, a rocky one for Vic, 61, and Pauleen, 27. For almost five years, the couple have had to parry incessant negativity from critics denouncing their relationship, mostly because of their 34-year age gap—this was emphasized by the fact that Pauleen was once a contestant in the noontime show “Eat Bulaga’s” “Little Miss Philippines” segment.

Pauleen was called, among many other things, a gold digger—a comment she found most unfair.

“It wasn’t easy, but … things ended up well,” said Pauleen, who walked down the aisle with her mother, Chat, and father, Eugenio.

Another hurdle was getting the blessing of Vic’s children, Danica and Oyo (with Dina Bonnevie), Paulina (with Angela Luz) and Vico (with Coney Reyes), some of whom had initial misgivings about their dad’s May-December romance. But after several talks with his children, Vic and Pauleen eventually received their blessing.


THE GROOM with his children and grandchildren

Vic also turned emotional during the homily when the officiating priest, Fr. Jeffrey Quintela, thanked the actor-host’s children for “giving their father a chance to prove that he could be a good husband again.”

“We’re happy for the support of Vic’s family. It was an answered prayer,” Pauleen added.

The reception was held at the nearby Filinvest Tent, which was tastefully decorated with white flowers, crystal charms and light fixtures. Dinner for about 250 guests was catered by Bizu.

The festivities featured the couple dancing silly in a fun dance number to the ditties, “Dessert” and “Hotline Bling,” and exchanging wedding vows, among other things.

“Sanay ako sa mga dyowa lang, sa syotitay, syota, mga fling! Masarap pala sabihing, ‘asawa ko,’” Vic jested, eliciting laughter. But turning serious, Vic once again thanked his kids for understanding him, saying, “I won’t waste the respect and love you give me.”

Pauleen, on the other hand, thanked her husband for “sticking it out and fighting for me.” “You made me see that true love knows no age, no boundaries,” she said.

Today, (Feb 3) the couple will fly to Maldives for their honeymoon.


Mr. and Mrs. Sotto's undeniably elegant vacation in Maldives. The country is known for its beautiful beaches, magnificent view, and its delicious array of food choices. Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna's first vacation as a married couple spent their time at the beach, and even had a scrumptious dinner during their stay. Maldives is an island country and archipelago in the Indian Ocean. It lies southwest of India and Sri Lanka in the Laccadive Sea. Photo by: @pauleenluna (IG)

In preparation for her cooking show on Star World Asia with celebrity chef Stefano Medicci, Heart Evangelista has been taking cooking classes with (right) her sister Cam Ongpauco (rightmost) and cousin Happy Ongpauco

Curtain-raiser:

•Trivia from Dr. Vivian S. Sarabia, “Eye Stylist to the Stars”: Have you seen Star Cinema’s Everything About Her? Check out the name of Vilma Santos’ character, Dr. Vivian S. Rabaya, who is a stage-3 cancer patient. My full name is Dr. Vivian S. Sarabia and I am a third-stage cancer patient (on remission). Coincidence? Funny but is Vilma’s movie based on my story?

There’s no stopping Heart Evangelista from exploring new fields. She has written a beauty book and has recently mounted her second solo exhibit, with the biggest piece said to cost, hold your breath, P800,000. Her hand-painted bags are priced at P80,000. “They are worth it,” said an art collector. Heart’s first solo exhibit was a sellout.

Chiz said that he has been telling Heart stories straight from his sorties in different parts of the country.

“She’s excited to find out for herself,” said Chiz. “She wants to go around the country. Since she has work at GMA and other commitments, she is going with me only during her free time. Sometimes, I will go to some places and she to other places so we can cover as many places as possible.”
