I find the memes on social media of Binibining Pilipinas-Universe 2016 Maxine Medina being likened to Coco Martin in drag as Paloma (in “Ang Probinsyano”) so adorably cute. I asked Coco’s manager, Mother Bibs (Biboy Arboleda) how Coco feels about the comparison.
Here goes: “Ang sabi niya (Coco), ‘Naku, pag naging totoong girl pala si Paloma, puwede na pala ako maging beauty queen.’ I asked him if he wanted to meet Maxine and he said, ‘Yes, sana soon.’”
