AFTER earning the ire of netizens on social media for the Vitamin C drip in the office of her husband Senator Robinhood Padilla, actress-host Mariel Rodriguez Padilla on Sunday officially issued her apology to the Senate and the public saying it was not her intention to disrespect the Senate as an institution.

“It was never my intention to malign nor undermine the integrity and dignity of the Senate. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to all concerned, including the members and staff of the Senate and the public. We uphold the Senate’s dignity and integrity,” Rodriguez-Padilla said.

Posted by Senator Robinhood Padilla in his facebook, Rodriguez-Padilla also clarified that it was not a glutathione IV dip but only Vitamin C drip which she was doing under the supervision of a nurse.

“To clarify, I received a Vitamin C Drip, not a Glutathione, under the medical supervision of a professional nurse. Having mentioned this, my intent ws just to inspire others that even amidst various activities or wherever they are, they can still prioritize their health by taking vitamins,” Rodriguez-Padilla added.

She said she was on the Senate premises to show her strong support for the Eddie Garcia bill which was passed by the Senate on third and final reading.

“I was at the senate to show support for my husband’s bill. Despite my busy schedule as a wife, mother, and online sellerl, I wanted to be there with him since his work is very important to him,” Rodriguez-Padilla stressed.

Rodriguez-Padilla also insisted that it was her intention to provide “inspiration” to people that they can prioritize their health by taking vitamins wherever they are anytime of the day.
