I will miss you my cleopatra... I will be the luckiest girl in history to have you as my 2nd mom. I love you so much!!!! Until we meet again my mommy m..."
Evangelista considers the late senator her super hero, her Cleopatra, and her second mom.
You would read vogue for me and in return I would study your law books... You made me study the "serious Einstein subjects" and bring me to meet the "kings and queens" the way you would say it... You showed me so much of the world, put on my slippers when I had a migraine and fed me the best lobsters in bed...i would sleep over for weekends and stay up till 2am and we would talk about cleopatra and grace Kelly... Your big hair and workout clothes, your lambing tone,your sweetness and kisses... When this photo was taken a halo appeared on my screen... Indeed you were and will always be my guardian angel...
It was the late Senator who was instrumental to Heart and husband Senator Chiz Escudero's love story. She introduced Heart to Chiz after the former broke up with her boyfriend, Daniel Matsunaga. She told Heart to go out and date single men.
