“Magandang Buhay’s” episode on Monday was intended to celebrate momshie Karla Estrada’s 42nd birthday. Part of the show’s surprise for “Queen Mother” was some of her co-stars from the Wednesday group of “That’s Entertainment”, a youth-oriented show hosted by the late German “Kuya Germs” Moreno aired on GMA 7 where she used to be a member of.
The original Wednesday group casts include Sheryl Cruz, Sunshine Cruz, Chuckie Dreyfus, Rachel Alejandro, Jojo Abellana, Jojo Alejar, Precious Hipolito, Piolo Pascual, G. Toengi and Romnick Sarmenta.
While they were reminiscing their past experiences on the show, Jojo suddenly remembered an instance when his friend was dating a female member of their group.
“Meron akong alam, kasi yung isang best friend ko sa Wednesday Group—mamaya ko na i-mention yung name—ay lagi kong kasama.”
“So, nagtaka ako, sabi niya, ‘Jo, samahan mo ako.’ Hindi lang ako kasama, yung co-member [kasama din].”
Karla then hit Jojo with a throw pillow as if she was telling Jojo not to divulge it in public. But then, Jojo continued with his story.
“So, sabi ko, ‘Go, bro, sama kami.’ So, sama kami, ‘maya biyahe na kami.’Nagulat ako, nagulat kaming lahat, biglang, ‘Si Karla ito, a!’”
Later on, momshies Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal insisted to know who the guy is. Jojo then revealed he is Romnick Sarmienta.
“Very sweet itong taong ito… walang iba kundi si Mr. Romnick Sarmenta.”
The revelation sparked “kilig” moments from the audience. However, they emphasized that it was long ago when both of them were still single.
“Those were the days,” Jojo said.
“Alam mo naman ‘yan, Jo, malinaw na talagang pareho kaming mga single-single noon,” Karla added.
Romick Sarmienta is now happily married to Harlene Bautista.
