Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos-Recto (born Maria Rosa Vilma Tuazon Santos November 3, 1953 in Bamban, Tarlac), commonly known as Vilma Santos-Recto or Ate Vi is a Filipino actress and box office queen for almost four decades. One of the original Philippine movie queens, she rose up to become the versatile actress that has been given the fitting title of “Star for All Seasons” because of her capacity to adapt to the changing mores and values of the Filipino woman, giving a face to their plight and struggles, albeit in success both critically and box-office wise in some of Philippine cinema’s classics such as Trudis Liit (1963), Lipad, Darna, Lipad (1973), Burlesk Queen (1977), Relasyon (1982), Sister Stella L. (1984), Alyas Baby Tsina (1984), Pahiram ng Isang Umaga (1989), Dahil Mahal Kita: The Dolzura Cortez Story (1993), Anak (2000) and Dekada ’70 (2002).

Coney Reyes and Vilma Santos

Student Canteen to Eat Bulaga - "...Matatandaang ang friendship nina Vi, Helen, Coney at Tina ay naging matibay at matatag dahilan upang mai-guest ni Helen ang tatlo sa kanyang programang Lovingly Yours. At biruin nyo ang talent fee nila ay ang trip to Singapore na silang apat lang ang magkakasama para lalo silang makapag-bonding. Noong binawian ng buhay si Helen noong early '90s ay sa isang fellowship building sa Makati City siya ibinurol at nakita namin sa kanyang coffin ang isang bouquet na nakalagay ang mga pangalan nina Vi, Coney at Tina. Sobrang nalungkot ang tatlo sa pagkamatay ni Helen at bilang pagpapatunay ng kanilang pagkakaibigan.....nang ikasal si Vi ay ginawa niyang mga secondary sponsors sina Coney, Tina at Princess na siyang pumalit kay Helen. Matatandaan ding noong 1991, sina Vi, Helen, Coney at Tina ay pare-parehong umakyat sa entablado para tanggapin ang kanilang award mula sa Star Awards for Television. Tinanggap ni Vi ang best musical variety show para sa kanyang VILMA show, si Helen naman ay bilang best female newscaster para sa GMA Balita, si Coney ay bilang best drama actress para sa Coney Reyes on Camera at si Tina ay bilang best female host para sa Lunch Date. Silang apat ay nagsama na din sa isang espesyal na okasyon ng Vilma Show ni Vilma at umawit pa nga sila ng awiting That What Friends Are For. Siyanga pala si Helen at Coney ay nagkasama rin sa television show na Student Canteen katuwang sina Eddie Ilarde at Bobby Ledesma. Samantala, sinabi ni Coney sa isang VTR ng Wowowee noong nakaraang kaarawan ni Vi na siya daw ang nagturo kay Vi para gumamit ng panyo. Ayaw daw kasi ni Vi na gumamit ng tissue paper dahil pag pinagpapawisan siya at ginamit niya ang tissue paper ay may naiiwang nakadikit na tissue paper sa kanyang pisngi kaya't hanggang ngayon ay panyo ang trademark ni Vi.

Di nga ba't isa si Julie Haglund na masuwerteng nakahingi ng panyo ni Vi noong dinalaw niya si Vi sa Batangas City? Nang magkasunod-sunod ang best actress award ni Vi noong early 80s lalo na noong naka-grand slam si Vi sa pelikulang Relasyon ay nasabi ni Coney na pinapakyaw talaga ni Vi ang mga awards. Napangasawa ni Coney ang basketbolistang si Larry Mumar at nabiyayaan din sila ng mga anak subali't hindi rin naging maganda ang kanilang pagsasama kung kaya't naghiwalay din sila. Nang mawala ang Student Canteen ay naging isa sa mga hosts ng Eat Bulaga si Coney. Dito nabuo ang relasyon nila ni Vic Sotto. Nagkaroon sila ng isang anak sa katauhan ni Vico at isa si Vi sa mga naging ninang ni Vico. Si Coney ay ilang beses ding naparangalan ng Star Awards for Television bilang best drama actress sa kanyang drama anthology na Coney Reyes on Camera noong taong 1987, 1990, 1991, 1994 at 1995 at ang kanyang drama anthology ay nabigyan din ng best daytime drama anthology noong taong 1996 at 1997. Naging best actress ng Metro Manila Film Festival si Coney noong 1983 para sa pelikulang Bago Kumalat Ang Kamandag. Si Vi at si Coney ay nagkasama sa mga pelikulang Basta't Isipin Mong Mahal Kita at Muling Buksan Ang Puso..." - Alfonso Valencia (READ MORE)

Coney Reyes and Vilma Santos

Muling Buksan Ang Puso (1985) - "...Jim (Dindo Fernando) is a doctor and Cristy (Vilma Santos) is his nurse. Good looking and successful Jim finds himself an ardent admirer in Cristy. But Cristy is not an ordinary lady – she’s daring and defiant. She’ll do whatever it takes to win him even if he’s very much married. Cristy’s persistence and Jim’s longing for a child leads to an illicit relationship. But too much love suffocates and covetousness can breed hate..." - Mavshack (READ MORE)

Basta't Isipin Mong Mahal Kita (1975) - "...And so, to prove them wrong, Vilma’s manager smartly plotted follow-up recordings. Not only did Vilma record her follow-up album, she recorded a string of mini-LPs. Mini-LPs are shorter version of the big vinyl record with two songs on each side. She ventured into Tagalog songs, recording six songs that include instants hits like Isipin Mong Basta’t Mahal Kita, a theme song to a film she did opposite Filipino chess grand master, Eugene Torre; Palong-Palo, where she received a golden record award in 1974 and an up-tempo opm, Tok-Tok Palatok, another theme song from one of her comedy film with the same title opposite Jojit Paredes..." - RV (READ MORE)
