Herlene, fondly called “Hipon Girl” shared on her Instagram how thankful she is for Willie. She revealed that right after it was announced that she became part of the top 40 candidates for Binibining Pilipinas 2022, Willie congratulated her.

Herlene admitted feeling emotional as she recalled how Willie first helped her. She wrote, “Masaya na may halong iyak ako habang kausap ko siya sa phone. Dahil siya ang humulma sa akin at sobrang proud siya sa akin at natutuwa po siya sa akin kasi lagi ko daw siya ina-acknowledge! Di ko raw siya nakakalimutan!”

According to Herlene, it’s impossible for her to ever forget the goodness and kindness of Willie. She recalled how she was given a showbiz break and even said in jest that half of her brain came from the popular host.

Herlene added, “Siyempre naman alagang Wowowin si Hipon girl. Nag-gained ako ng popularity dahil pag joined ko sa Wowowin segment ‘Willie of fortune’ tapos siya din nakakita sa aking potential at ginawa akong regular host dahil sa kakulitan at funny jokes ko! Malaki utang na loob ko sa kanya. Dahil kalahating utak ko siya ang nag ambag.”
