Luningning, Milagring, Mariposa Interview
ASF Dancers Luningning, Milagring and Mariposa have been interviewed on the Filipino morning show, Umagang Kay Ganda by Edu Manzano. After the interview the girls danced to the delight of their fans.
Luninging, Milagring and Mariposa are all dancers on the popular Philippines' noon-time game show Wowowee. While being immensely popular and household names in the Philippines they often take a back seat to host Willie Revillame and co-hosts Mariel Rodriguez and Roxanne Guinoo. They are rarely heard speaking. The girls are well known for their great dancing and frantic dance showdowns.
Some details of the interview for those who do not speak fluent Tagalog (the language of the Philippines)
Mariposa says before Wowowee she was in the beauty content 'Calendar Girls'. She says she is very happy. She's happy when she dances and of course is happy for the TV exposure. She was overwhelmed when she first saw the audience smiling and clapping.
Luningning says she is 23 years old, 5 foot 1 high and the eldest of 6 siblings. She is the family breadwinner. She helped her brother finish his studies in electronics and her other siblings are still quite young.
The interviewer, Edu, says to Milagring that the names Luningning and Mariposa can be heard in the provinces but Milagring is not a common name. Milagring says that it was given to her by their director, Direk Bobot Mortiz after Luningning. Edu jokes that the name is like 'Milagrosang bigas', miracle rice and that as Milagring holds the money in the Pera o Bayong part of the show, maybe she can deliver a miracle.
A big thanks to A, for the details of the interview.
