Karen Davila’s return to TV Patrol yesterday, October 11, has become a trending topic on social media.
A leaf landed on her face while she was doing her move!
As of April 2021, broadcaster patrol officers have performed their reporting duties separately at various locations of ABS-CBN’s ELJ Building.
Karen’s post yesterday was at the entrance of the Dolphy Theatre, an outdoor venue. Henry Omaga Diaz is in the TV studio Patrol, while Bernadette Sembrano is in another outdoor venue inside the grounds of the ELJ Building.
Last night, Typhoon Maring brought up strong winds in Metro Manila.
When Henry hosted the show, Karen just smiled for the camera until a leaf fell on her face, almost distracting her.
Karen tried to stay calm, not letting the leaf ruin her posture.
The blooper was first noticed by Twitter netizen @gerviceespinar, who captured the moment from his TV set.
He wrote in his tweet, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA MISS KAREN DAVILA SANA OKAY KA LANG”
The tweet, uploaded at 9:44 pm on October 11, has received 4.8k retweets and 39.4k likes at press time.
Karen was able to notice the tweet earlier today, October 12, and retweeted it.
She wrote on her repost, “Literally transfers a new leaf”
Karen also posted a video clip on her Instagram, which is a screen capture from the TV episode Patrol.
The seasoned news anchor wrote in the caption, “Literally turning over a new leaf. Mahangin lang talaga sa labas lol. Have a good day everyone! Christmas is around the corner. See you later on TVP”
The post drew reactions from Karen’s celebrity friends – including Kaladkaren, GMA-7 actress, Heart Evangelista, Eat Bulaga! host Ryan Agoncillo, ABS-CBN reporters Dyan Castillejo and Abner Mercado, and host Bernadette Sembrano.
