MANILA, Philippines – Former beauty queen Melanie Marquez admitted she is hurt that Senator Lito Lapid allegedly is no longer communicating with their son.

In an interview on dzMM Thursday, Marquez said she wonders why the former action star does not talk to their son Manuelito, who is based in Las Vegas, USA.

“Alam mo, the best thing, tanungin mo si Lito, bakit hindi niya kinakausap ang anak ko. Syempre nasasaktan din ako,” she said.

In jest, she added, “Aawayin ko ‘yan. Pupunta ako ng Senado. Baka sila i-impeach ko.”

Recounting her affair with Lapid, Marquez said she sacrificed a lot to set things right with the senator’s family and his wife Marissa.

“I don’t know why she (Marissa) hates me when in fact she should thank me because that’s why her husband is back with her is because I asked that,” she said.

“Makita lang ‘yung sakripisyo ko, mas marami akong ini-sacrifice, sinakripisyo ko ‘yung pagkababae ko, naging unwed mother ako and everything. Dinideretso ko ‘yung mga pagkakamali ko, [because] I will never be the cause of a broken home.”

Marquez added that her son is innocent when it comes to the issue, and should be spared from any more conflict.

“Syempre pag anak mo na ang inapi…OK lang ako apihin ng tao eh,” she said. “Huwag nilang pag-initan si Manuelito. Manuelito is such a good boy. Kung walang kuntsabahan na naganap, walang Manuelito.”
