There is a report that Cavite Congresswoman Lani Mercado was offered by two political parties to be drafted as among their senatorial bets in the next election. Senator Bong Revilla, her husband, turned down the offer.

“I believe one senator in the family is enough. After all, my wife Lani is doing well in the House of Representatives. When I ran for the Senate, my dad Ramon Sr. was already an ex-senator,” Bong said.

Well, even Lani told this writer once that she had no intention whatsoever of running for the Senate.

Regarding a query by their loyal fans about a chance for another Bong-Lani team-up in a movie, Lani grinned and said, “Why not, if there’s a good script and we’re given a proper time to shoot such film. More than a decade na kaming di nagkasama sa isang pelikula ni Bong.”
