  • Having your partner's back is essential in keeping a healthy relationship. Something that Eric Tai flawlessly demonstrated when his wife, Rona Samson-Tai, became a target of a body-shaming comment.

    To mark the holidays, Eric posted a photo from his family's Christmas vacation. The photo showed him, Rona, and their son, Legend posing in a pool. "From the bottom of my maskels, a safe and blessed-Merry Christmas to your family from mine!," the former TV host wrote in his caption.

    In the sea of well-wishers in the comment section, one netizen caught the attention of Eric. In the now-deleted comment, the netizen asked the fit TV personality: "Why bro you advise someone who can work out but your wife you can't teach her to be fit?"

    Eric quickly came to the defense of her wife and flexed Rona's credentials as a plus-size model. 


    "She's (Rona) one of Philippines most sought-after plus size models! Actually one of the best...You'll see her on Avon, HnM, Cosmopolitan, SM, and many more advertisements, prints, and commercials." Eric ended his reply with a fitting hashtag, "#WomenEmpowerment"

    Eric is not having any of the talks that his wife is not fit.

    "Real love hits different"

    Eric went on to show that he is #HusbandGoals and shared a couple more appreciation posts for his wife. Following Christmas day, he shared some snaps showing their sweet moment as a couple, with a cheesy caption, "Pumikit ka. 'Yan ang mundo ko 'pag wala ka..."

    In another post, Eric uploaded Rona's photo glowing in her two-piece red bikini. She was the very definition of self-love and confidence in this photo!

    The personality, also known as 'Eruption,' did not end there and shared one of Rona's ad campaigns in the comment section. "Na ol (Sana all) mowdel! Ikaw na kumander! Rona Samson-Tai #NoToBodyShaming," he said. Truly, Eric is Rona's number one supporter and cheerleader!

    For her part, Rona also made it clear she is not neglecting her health. "I cardio daily, I have no vices, I do my best to live a healthy lifestyle, I take care of myself, my husband, and my child."

    She adds, "Punto dyan, ang katawan ng tao magbabago, pero hindi dapat gawin basehan ng kaligayahan." Eric followed it up with a status that read: "'Pag mataba ka, hindi ibig sabihin unhealthy ka."

    A message to body shamers

    Despite the criticism, Rona refuses to let other people’s comments affect her. Instead, she wished them "true and unconditional love. Not just from your significant other, but also from yourself."

    Addressing her critics, she said, "love yourself enough even if you’re going through something that you will see its beauty and strength despite its imperfection. Know that you can body shame me all day long, but sweetheart, that doesn’t phase me!"
