"Peace!" was Pokwang’s short but sweet message to Eat Bulaga host Joey De Leon, who called her aswang in a novelty song he did for a show abroad. "Maliit lang ang industriya, darating ang araw na magkakatrabaho rin kami niyan," expressed the amicable Wowowee co-host.
At first, Pokwang did not mind the harsh name-calling, but eventually felt its negative impact when her daughter was called ‘anak ng aswang’ by some of her classmates in school. "Hindi ako nasaktan dahil tinawag akong aswang," began Pokwang. "Alam ko namang hindi totoo ‘yon. Yung tungkol sa anak ko ‘yun lang ang malaking isyu sa akin."
Pokwang is very grateful however when Willie Revillame came to her rescue during Wowowee’s August 18 airing, where he defended his co-host from Joey. "Natutuwa po ako at ang buong pamilya ko sa ginawa ni Papi (Willie)," she said. "Siyempre naawa na rin si Papi sa akin. Hindi na niya natiis ang damdamin niya. Tao rin lang naman siya. Bow talaga ako sa ginawa niya," Pokwang concluded.
