Judy Ann Santos feels saddened by Ai-Ai delas Alas's experience with domestic violence


052513-judyann_main.jpgJudy Ann Santos shared that one of the things that made her accept the teleserye Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala is the fact that it tackles domestic violence and aims to boost women empowerment. She actually reviewed all her previous soaps to make sure that she something new for her avid supporters.  

Yung story about women empowerment at para maipakita sa mga tao na ang babae hindi dapat sinasaktan, ang babae dapat matuto lumaban, basta nasa tama ang pinaglalaban niya. At the same time para ma-boost pakiramdam ng isang babae. Na hindi porket nagasawa ka, eh basta ka na lang papayag sa nangyayari lalo na kapag inaapi ka. Actually not necessarily as wife, kahit single nabubugbog. So gusto ko iparating sa soap na ito na hindi sa lahat ng pagkakataon lalaki nasusunod lalo na kung mali,” she told the local press during her recent pictorial for Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.

Incidentally, the theme of the soap is similar to what Ai-Ai delas Alas recently went through during her short-lived marriage with Jed Salang, who reportedly cheated on her and physically abused her at the same time. When asked to comment on the issue, Judy Ann maintained that it just so happened that the launch of her teleserye coincided with Ai-Ai’s current dilemma. “Para sa lahat yung mensahe na gusto naming ipaabot sa teleserye. Pero hindi naman ito patungkol sa sitwasyon ni Ms. Ai. Mahal namin siya, we're all here for her. Nagkataon lang na ito ang tema ng teleserye namin. Sana marami kaming mahikayat na mga kababaihan na ipaglaban yung sarili nila.
 
Judy Ann added that she could just imagine how difficult it must have been for Ai-Ai to be in such a position. “Well, siyempre sad. Kaibigan natin si Ai. I don’t know Jed personally. I have nothing else to say to him. It’s just really sad na ang isang love story na pinangarap ng isang tao all of a sudden biglang nawala. Sana walang ganon ‘di ba? Sana hindi umaabot ang lalaki sa puntong kailangan pagbuhatan ng kamay ang babae, ang asawa, o ang anak. Kasi hindi dapat nagkakasakitan ang mga tao.
