Bongbong mum on Australian half-sister

- Charlie Lagasca -

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines – Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. neither confirmed nor denied reports about his supposed Australian half-sister who was said to have been dropped from an Australian home makeover show for being the daughter of the late strongman.

“We have been hearing those rumors for more than 20 years now,” was all the senator, son and namesake of the late President Marcos, could say about his supposed half-sister, Analisa Josefa Hegyesi, a 40-year-old interior designer.

The young Marcos was in this Ilocano-dominated landlocked province Friday as keynote speaker in the 20th commencement exercises of the Programming Language Technique College Inc.

Hegyesi’s mother, former Playboy model Evelin Hegyesi, reportedly had an affair with the former strongman in the 1970s when she was 19 years old. 

The young Hegyesi carried the second name Josefa, which is the first name of Marcos’ mother.

Last month, Hegyesi, who reports said was born in 1971, told the Australian media that she had been removed from the reality show “The Renovators” after she revealed being Marcos’ daughter following months of rigid auditions. The show’s producers denied this. 

In an earlier report, Bombo Radyo Laoag City quoted Sen. Marcos’ eldest sister, Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, as saying that rumors have been circulating for years about their father’s other children.
