Shalani Soledad in Bench Billboard as Endorser Stopped by Kris Aquino?By Alex Jusi Madlangbayan on Dec 11, 2010 in Current Events, Entertainment, Local, Television •
Bench owner, Ben Chan, has denied earlier reports that Shalani Soledad is the new Bench endorser and a billboard will showcase her soon, according to local reports. Chan clarified that the billboard that will be coming out this December will feature TV5‘s new variety show Willing Willie and not Shalani. The billboard is bench way of showing support for Willie Revillame‘s new show since he is an endorser of Bench‘s cologne called, Wil Cologne. Since the billboard is in support of Willing Willie, it will show Willie Revillame as the host and his co-host Shalani Soledad.
Chan also denied reports that Kris Aquino had asked for the cancellation of the billboard. The Bench boss clarified that there was no discussion of the Shalani Bench Billboard with Kris. Aquino is an endorser of Bench sister brand, Kashieca. Shalani on the other hand, is the former girlfriend of Kris Aquino‘s brother, Philippine President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III.
PEP earlier reported that Shalani Soledad already had a pictorial for her endorsement of Bench. According to PEP, they got the information from Baby Soledad, aunt of Shalani, last November 24, 2010.
Here is part of Ben Chan‘s statement on the Shalani Soledad Bench Billboard issue:
Si Willie kasi, yung cologne niya with Bench? So endorser siya. So we’re supporting him para sa show niya, tapos, e, siyempre co-host si Shalani, so she’s part of it.
The same way when Willie had his new show now, kasama niya yung mga dancers niya. If you’ve seen the billboard, kasama niya yung mga dancers. Ngayon naman, kasama niya yung co-host niya.
Nag-request si Willie, and the billboard is about his show, and it’s not about the product. Wala pa nga, e. Next week pa, e. Kaya nga nagtataka ako, e. Hindi ko pa nga nakikita yung lay-out e.
