Earlier this year, buzz about ABS-CBN planning to reboot their millenial hit series Pangako Sa "Yo started to resurface. Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla were tapped to play the characters of Yna Macaspac (Kristine Hermosa) and Angelo Buenavista (Jericho Rosales).
However, the equally-significant senior characters are still left open for clever actresses. Amor Powers, originally played by Eula Valdez, was one of the characters that was tattooed on everyone's mind who have seen and followed the series which debuted on Philippine TV in 2000 and ended in 2002.
Several names have floated playing the controversial role. According to some rumors, Judy Ann Santos was first offered the role while Claudine Barretto was offered to play the equally-famous character of Madam Claudia Buenavista - originally played by Jean Garcia.
For unknown reasons, Juday turned it down so it was offered to Jodi Sta. Maria. For the second time, another actress turned down to play the part because Jodi wanted to have some space and take a vacation from work after appearing for more than two years in ABS-CBN's successful daytime series Be Careful With My Heart.
The latest actress who was chosen by the "powers that be" is said to be Angelica Panganiban. The 28-year old Angelica Panganiban will be playing mother to an 18-year old daughter. This development elicited funny reactions from netizens and we can't help but laugh while reading the comments

But if Eula Valdez were to ask who she thinks between Angelica Panganiban and Jodi Sta. Maria will play her character better, this is what she had to say...
“E, kung si Jodi magaling, si Jodi. Gusto ko si Jodi. Basta good luck sa kanilang dalawa. Alam n’yo kasi kaibigan ko si Jodi, e! So alam mo yun? Pero sa kakayahan, malay mo naman, may pasabog si Angelica, di ba? Hindi mo rin masasabi, e."
“Tsaka nasa materyal yan, e. Kung maganda ang materyal, lalabas at lalabas ang galing mo. Puwera na lang kung bobo ka,”, Eula Valdez said.
