Iwa Moto Reacts To Netizen Claiming Jodi Sta. Maria Is “Mas Maganda”

Iwa: “Number one, walang competition”

Actress Iwa Moto shows no signs of offense following a netizen’s outright comparison of her and her husband Pampi Lacson’s ex-wife, Jodi Sta. Maria

In fact, the 35-year-old actress took it as a form of entertainment while stressing that she and Jodi are not competing at all.

Iwa has uploaded a TikTok video of her unfiltered, natural face on September 19, which then got a comment from one user that reads (published as is): “mas maganda pa din c Judi Sta. Maria.” 

As a response, Iwa then made another video pointing out that: “Number one, walang competition. Number two, wrong spelling ka te!” 


Replying to @bombastic 2023 papatol ako today lang. bored ako eh???

? original sound – Iwa Moto – Iwa Moto

Iwa, who took humor out of an offensive remark, then bursted out laughing. 

The video captioned, “Papatol ako today lang. Bored ako eh [laughing emoji],” has already garnered over five thousand likes and more than two hundred comments as of writing. 

Some of the comments are just as affirming, with many netizens pointing out that there is no need for comparison.

While Jodi and Pampi annulment was finalized six years after their separation, Iwa and Pampi were said to have been dating since 2012. 

They have two children, Hiromi Eve and Caleb Jiro. 

Pampi and Jodi’s relationship precedes Iwa. And while it is uncommon for then and now partners to be welcoming, least speaking, Iwa and Jodi have been cordial with each other. 

Though it seems like a hard arrangement, Jodi and Pampi have a healthy co-parenting setup insofar that Iwa also welcomes Thirdy as her son. 

Just one of the evidence of Iwa’s good-natured demeanor towards Pampi’s first family was when she uploaded an Instagram video of Thirdy climbling through their fence.

Iwa then took yet another humor out of the kid’s attempt to sneak, saying she will just have another key duplicated for Thirdy’s use.
