Pin the Tail on the Donkey

All of Social Manila [ as well as Non-Social Manila ] these days are in giggles, squeals, and shrieks of perverse delight on their laptops and PCs…  In a series of three downloaded videos from cyberspace, but specially in the longest one, Doctor Stud, on-and-off-and-on-again boyfriend of Doctor Sexy, delightfully manifests his astonishing sexual prowess in a variety of positions with three different women.

Inevitably, it comes to mind that if the remarkable sexual prowess displayed is what Doctor Sexy is enjoying in her relationship with Doctor Stud, and it must be, then many hotblooded women and even more hotblooded gay men have justifiable reasons to be envious of her.  

For a long time already, it was rumored that Doctor Stud had uploaded his sex videos to his laptop and that was how Doctor Sexy had discovered his various affairs as she innocently surfed the Internet on his laptop in his pad one unusually free afternoon when he wasn’t around.  Apparently, something unforeseen, or indeed something foreseen, had happened and the videos are all over the Internet now.  Probably an Xtube sensation already. 

Exhibitionism galore.  And an orgy of voyeurism for everyone else.

I wish I could post the downloaded links but I will not out of simple decency.  Besides, every other Juan de la Cruz has downloaded it by now so you can just ask.  And it is already supposed to be widely available among the pirated DVD stalls in Quiapo and Greenhills already. 

Enjoy the show.  It’s quite something, really.  Until today I thought only Caucasians could perform phenomenally like that.  Doctor Stud certainly has a great future in the pornographic movies industry.

    Neither Hayden nor Katrina is visually repulsive. In fact, I wasn’t grossed out by the videos until I turned the volume up and I heard Halili shriek, “HUYYY, LAB MO ‘KO?” and Kho’s response, “LAB”….That broad is pretty and has a nice body, but once that mouth opens it all goes to sh*t. Que voz de criada tiene.

    Zippo, sorry, I didn’t read your second post before replying since I thought it was a double post. I stand corrected on Judge Bong Kapunan’s title as I referred to him as Atty.

    From what I know, Red and Atty. Bong (Lorna’s late husband) are brothers.

    Yes, Red is the other famous military guy with Gringo.

    Atty. Kapunan’s late husband is also named Eduardo. He is/was the late Judge Eduardo Roden Kapunan. Retired Col. Eduardo “Red” Kapunan, the former rebel soldier — who is still very much alive, is the brother of the late Judge. The brothers apparently share the same name.

    Lorna Patajo-Kapunan is the daughter of the celebrated Supreme Court Justice Lino Patajo. She is a widow. Her late husband was Judge Eduardo Kapunan (a cancer victim) — they had been together since their days as classmates at the U.P.College of Law. The late Judge Kapunan is the nephew of Justice Santiago Kapunan who, in turn, is Adel Tamano’s father-in-law.

    Hi Toto,
    I am sad to say that a mutual friend of ours, Zafiro “Zaffy” Laguda Ledesma, passed on yesterday. He was from an old era-cultured, dignified. He was regal, aristocratic, but warm. I once called him an “elitist” to which he said, “Thank you!”
    I will always remember him for his dry sense of humor and his laughter.

    Everything seems orchestrated especially “the dousing.”

    Is it a coincidence that the lawyer of Hayden Kho is the aunt of the wife of the lawyer of Vicki Belo?

  17. May 29, 2009 at 3:41 am


    I know. So sad. I never could have imagined her going so young!!! I met Bela Vazquez through her close friend Vanna Virata at Tita Bebe Virata’s many years ago. Now, even Vanna V. isn’t well…

    I cannot imagine what the family must be feeling. My prayers and sympathy are with them. Marivic V. is a dear friend.

    As for T. Manoling, well, he was “long overdue”…

    Bela Madrigal Vazquez and Manoling Collantes died yesterday morning — almost at the same time.

    I just saw Bela 2 months ago — she lost so much weight but she looked great. I heard the cause of death was a thyroid problem.

    i didn’t watch the videos nor do i intend to. but the way that people are feasting around it–and, if it’s true that the principal actor/actresses have the best dishes of the lot, so to speak–is Royally scary.

    it’s just ironic that the voices calling for blood are also the first to admit to watching the videos. heavy are the hands that cast the first stone, no?

    Since sex videos are a cliche publicity stunt, the whole thing was obviously engineered by Hayden Kho’s notorious manager Lolit Solis. What makes this sure is Dr. Vicki Belo’s press release announcing efforts to trace the whereabouts of her own sex video which she can’t find now. Of course it doesn’t exist, she’s just following Lolit Solis’ script to drum up attention for Kho’s fledgling showbiz career for which he’s willing to gamble on losing his medical license. Licenses, btw can be suspended or revoked but may later be restored as in the case of some disbarred attorneys reinstated after successful petitions.

    Lolit Solis goes for over-the-cliff pakulo and almost completely destroyed the professional life of ward Gabby Concepcion for whom she cooked up that scheme which had emcee Ruffa Gutierrez announcing him as the best actor award winner when he wasn’t. Ruffa Gutierrez’s local career was downhill after the ensuing court case.

    We will NEVER see the Vicki Belo tapes because these have already been secured. Atty. Adel Tamano’s move to call the press con and announce the existence of these recordings is part of the strategy to solicit sympathy and protect Belo’s image. As to how the rest of the recordings found their way to the mainstream, it’s anybody’s guess. Smart lady. She should dump Hayden Kho and trade up.

    their video affair was simply a BETRAYAL of TRUST. whatever their circumstance, and whatever play on morality, Hayden Kho betrayed the trust of many people with his videos. I can only see his motive to be malicious, treacherous and psychotic. period.

    To see yourself, a niece, or sister or mother or wife in a similar video, what would you feel? Would it be similar to catching a spouse in flagrante delicto with another person? Would you be temporarily insane?

    How long can Dr. Vicki Belo trust him? bilog ang mundo…abangan…

    Please read at your own risk and with a pinch of salt…..

    The absolute truth is that good publicity, REAL bad publicity is STILL the most expensive and PRICELESS PUBLICITY.

    The case of the historic election Of US President Obama run by two of the world’s PR conglomerates proves this without of doubt. In cyberspace, particularly in U TUBE, he was hailed as the ANTI CHRIST, Obama related to Osama Bin Ladin. And yet, the passage of an unprecedented Presidential canditate proved, int the end, HE WAS COUNTED and sworn in. Doing safari, so good.

    Jackie Onassis Templeston prove this to the MAX ( the whole US of A hated her ), so did the Richard Burtons ( Liz was to be excommunicated by the POPE ), Madonna ( inumerable musical videos, yet if you can FIND her Herb Ritts book called SEX, it makes us all so unsexy forever. Standing beaver naked on Sunset Boulevard. )

    In the blazing summer of 09, CHISMISICALLY SPEAKNIG Metro Manilans were so pedesrtrian, nay plebian, no SO PROBINSYANO, BADUY TO THE BULLALO to tittle and tattle for the past week like tongues of emotional fire alighted and ignited the top of our heads. Our brains. It is called the Revenge of the Rich and Intelligent AGAINST the BEAUTIFUL, YOUNG and RICH. It was Lucifer’s downfall, because Cain’s unable, our national occupation and raison to unearth.

    The INTERNATIONAL best fornicating video SCANDALS were Paris Hilton and but not with Collin Farrel. That’s the straight dope, my countrymen.

    I have seen all videos at the newsroom where it is research for the newspaper’s front page story, I was bored to crocodile tears, no close up of the doctor’s PENIS. Harang ! Another till waist lang ! Si Maricar, the superstar.

    Sure it was abusive to Kat, sure the doc has a mental inferiority sin-drome but I was not AMUSED it was IN PAIRNESS , it was sooooooooooooooo boring to have to wait for the fake poorplay, the angling of the camaera vis-a-v the setting, SHEESH, but the actual sex act was as quick a a rabbit. I WANT to get my money back. REFUND, RE FUND.

    Yesd, the floodgate burst have indeed swelled to TSUNAMI heights and proves CHAINS OF FOOLS, US ALL, for the imeasurable depths we have sunk. Gossiping like magpies before we are ENVIOUS, COVETOUS of the young, the news and popular mob rules one to five.

    Because at the end of the daze, Kat Kho and VIXEN will reap mondo good PUBLICITY and PROMOTION. They will rehav, repent, re-invent their personas and packaging. Their social stock will soar or sour.

    Their very presence will make all stop look and wonder whether they be judged, jailed and burnt to a crisp ? Will time prove them guiltless or damned. All will become even more rich and famous SPECIALLY THE DOCTORA, symbol of stoic principle, discreetion and kindness to all concerned ( the starlet, the senator, the NBI, the doctor’s mother, the doctora’s two kids, Atom and ) the two doctors might marry or separate. Who cares, who knows. THE VICTORIOUS, I predict with obvious bias ) IS VICTORIA CANCIO BELO. Porque ? PORQUE NO !!!!!

    AND what’s to become of US, ALL. Sit on our aging butts, ready and ravenous to feed like noisy, flesh eatinging VULTURES, the NEXT big scoop du jour. What we really need is a coup de etat.

    BECAUSE we are all cowards and spineless jellyfish, sub-humans who cannot TALK, VIOLENTLY react to the REAL MOST FUCKI*G matter at hand . The palace, GMA and FG, it’s kichen cabinet and coruption THAT ROYALLY F*CKS us anally, painfully, every hour of every day. Taxes, higher prices, restriction, bureacrazy, bad roads and PRALYTIC TRAFFIC, military and police abuse. THE LYING STEALING CHEATING MUDERINGS sons of female dogs.

    That should set our hearts on fire, our actions and DEMONSTRATING public outcry to burn like a brush fire into a domcracy inferno for change NOW.

    But we chose to be AFRAID, SILENT, FROZEN IN APATHY and in the comfort zone of INSANE DENIAL.

    What a sermon, I only meant half of it, the other half I’m writing for the GRAND cover story of Vicky Belo………JUNE 21…….. Sunday INQUIRER Magazine. Three inside picture next seen, questions all answered like prayers or spitfire. AVANGAN……..

    That’s what I get for getting out on the WRONG side of the bed.

    And now a word from our SPONSORS……… PLDT and PANGILI, Meralco, DANDING by SAAN MIGUEL and the imploding LOPEZES. First generation generates the land and money, second re-generated amasses power, prestige, priveledge, the third ANYRATION will selfishly fight tooth and nail till all is spent. For nothing. From NOTHING. NO THING to take lightly, this IS the subject matter to be written and commented about to be, the end of may POST, mon cher TOTO! Por favor !

And it is only after All This that we will notice that we have been done in again!!! 😦

    Many Evil People are enjoying this because the Public Focus has left them… temporarily, anyway.

    I am not paying attention to this sex scandal at all. Instead, I am looking at the government officials and wondering how they are taking advantage of all of this — this unimaginably fantastic smokescreen — to accomplish their hidden agenda. I am telling all of you: SOMETHING IS AFOOT.

  39. zippo said,

    May 21, 2009 at 12:12 am

    I came across this editorial commentary by Joann Maglipon on this issue. It’s very well written. Read on:


    We’re at an all-time low.

    Today’s voyeur scene is alive and well and overrun by sex videos. There is the Katherine Luna and ex-boyfriend sex video. There are the Hayden Kho and Brazilian, plus celebs, sex videos. And there is the threat of even more sex videos exploding, one of them reportedly involving a young star with an impeccable image. But of these, it is the Hayden Kho-Katrina Halili sex video which is currently all the rage.


    That, in fact, should be the dominant word in all this. Rage that has nothing to do with being hot, even if these videos are the hottest ticket in town; rage that has only to do with feelings of revulsion and repugnance.

    For these are the exact emotions we must be feeling—if we’re to remain human, if we’re to deserve the consciousness that alone separates us from the animals we share this earth with.

    Equally vital, we must feel just these for the right reason.

    And the right reason has to be that, with every second these videos are viewed, a human being is violated, and that, with each violation, the entire human race is diminished just that little bit more.

    The women on that screen did not know, and did not consent, to being the lead players in a sex video.

    Or, if initially they had knowledge, they’d been made to understand that these were for their private use, and they never at any time consented to having the videos go public.

    Those captured moments were part of the natural, transactional intimacy between the women and their lovers. That is obvious. And in that setting, certainly, they’d undress. Certainly, they’d kiss each other wherever and whenever. Certainly, they’d abandon reason to lust, be servile and slavish or dominant and in control, whichever makes them happy. And who’s to do otherwise? That is what lovemaking is!

    Unfortunately, we’re a society with an unhealthy discomfiture and curiosity about sex. So caught up are we in our religiosities and small-mindedness and duplicities, we’re conditioned to see sex as a thing to hide. We’re prudes, in short. As such, many of us—the female species included—look on with both scorn and envy at women with fearless views about their bodies and their sexuality. (Say I’m wrong.)

    Back-ending this ugliness is our double standard of morality. We’ve heard this line to death, but it was true then and it’s true now. We’re not distressed just by sex as a subject, we’re especially distressed by it when it involves women. We’re also idiotic enough to think that men lose nothing, even if they’re the studs in the sex video and never agreed to perform for strangers. We just assume the men score. We just know the women are ruined.

    It’s not even because we put women up on a pedestal, or respect them inordinately, or feel this compulsion to protect them. No, every day that is getting harder to believe.

    Because, if that were so, we wouldn’t be making a fiesta out of viewing these videos that violate women!

    We wouldn’t be standing around our desks and calling everyone to come and watch—like it was just another television show, like it was entertainment, like no real lives were involved.

    We wouldn’t be hosting small private parties and showcasing these videos via high-definition equipment, while we sipped our drinks and made polite dinner talk.

    We wouldn’t be texting friends to provide the links to these sites.

    And we wouldn’t be snickering and guffawing, while slobbering all over the place with lewd jokes.

    Nope, the only reason we distress over women in these videos is because we think they’re cheap. We see them as beneath us. They give us a bad name. We fancy ourselves never getting caught up in something like this. From our safe little worlds, we think we’re above it all.


    In the first place, why should making love be beneath us? What’s abhorrent about lovemaking? As to never getting caught up with love and lust—why, that’d be totally missing out on one really robust human experience! And if we actually place ourselves above all physical intimacy—not as vocation and choice, but as issue of distaste for the act—that must be when our hearts are shriveled, like sun-dried prunes.

    And why can’t this scandal happen to us? Or to our sisters, nieces, cousins, daughters?

    Katrina was a pretty, 21-year-old who was earning her keep in 2007, when she fell in love with Hayden, then a handsome, 27-year-old doctor of medicine. Except for the fact that the doctor was publicly known to be the boyfriend of Vicki Belo, a doctor much wealthier and far older than he, there was nothing especially scary about him. And except for the fact that Katrina was already FHM’s sexiest woman in the world the year before, and would be voted so again that year, there was nothing especially different about her.

    She was just a young, liberated working girl, full of life, with the world before her—much like our sisters and nieces and cousins and daughters. And like many of these girls, at some point Katrina fell in love, and gave her all to her man.

    She was also not an insensitive girl. In my interview with her early this year, for YES! Magazine, she acknowledged that Vicki Belo was an issue in her relationship with Hayden. This is how she handled it: She played the suffering wife. Her man and Vicki could go out in the open and enjoy their partnership; she would stay in the condo and wait for when he could find time for her. She never imposed on his schedule; she waited, even if oftentimes she cried while doing so. By denying herself the pleasures of having long conversations with him, of eating out in restaurants with him, of attending showbiz events with him as escort, she believed she was already paying for her sins to Vicki.

    By her reckoning, she was behaving as decently as any woman in love could. A woman, by the way, who had been told by her man that she was his other partner “in a parallel life.”

    Since then, she has admitted on national television: “Ang tanga-tanga ko. Pero na-in love ako. Pasensiya na po…”

    Indeed, how was she to know this doctor would have a fetish for videos? How was she to know there would be a sick environment around the good-looking fellow—of a world seemingly measured by luxury goods and travel, with friends he has wronged and who hated him, of a whole value system neither educated nor decent?

    It is she who has been violated here. It is Katrina who has been abused—not once, or twice, but thrice! First, when her lover took videos of their most sexual moments without her knowledge and consent. Second, when some heartless bastards uploaded the videos on the Net. And third, when an unthinking, unfeeling public viewed the videos and enjoyed themselves.

    KATRINA’S VIDEOS. As early as May 9, with the rumblings of a Hayden sex video starting to mount, I told the PEP staff that no way would we upload. This didn’t even have to be about Katrina, whom I know personally. This could’ve been about any girl, a complete stranger, and I would still say no.

    I don’t even think anyone should ask why. It is just so plain and so clear, there is no need for reason or discourse. It just takes instinct. Intuition. Reflex. It’s a gut thing. A sense of right and wrong kicking in. A universal moral language, if you will.

    This is a video, after all, that has pained, tainted, exposed, stripped naked, humiliated, and practically killed the soul of a girl of 23. This girl, whose only crime is that she fell in love with the wrong man, now suffers the once-pure joys of her affections and trust being made entertainment fodder by anyone with access to a computer. She is a woman against whom stones have been cast.

    Let me make this clear again because I will not align myself with the censors of this earth: I am not revolted by a sex video because of its scenes of intimacies in bed—or on the couch or in the powder room or wherever two consenting adults desire to unleash their love and lust at each other. The moments between lovers—be they gentle or wild, physical or verbal, cerebral or carnal—are to me an issue of joy. I maintain that making love has to be one of the most powerful intimacies of all time.

    But these sex videos circulating of Katrina Halili and Hayden Kho are a different matter altogether. They no longer fall under moments between lovers. They’ve become moments of monstrous aggression by one partner against another.

    Hayden has shamed and disrespected Katrina, a woman who had loved him with all the faith of her youth. And whether he ever loved her back or not, he had no right to put her in harm’s way. Even if he never intended for the videos to be found by another soul, he had no right to include an unsuspecting girl in his inglorious playtime.

    Hayden Kho should not be allowed to live this down for the rest of his natural-born life.

    On May 10, the first video arrived in PEP, along with three screen captures. They were sent by some anonymous bloke who probably thought he/she was doing us a favor. Well, wrong again. I refused to even look at the video or the pictures. There was never any upload.

    As the days passed, we heard about more videos. These were now reaching private emails and more sites. Still, PEP would not budge. Instead, I called Omar Sortijas, Katrina’s handler. Beyond my instinctive response, I wanted to know the facts.

    Did Katrina know the videos were being taken?

    Omar says, “Alam ni Katrina yong sumasayaw sila, at yong dalawa pa, na nagsasalita pa siya. Pero ang alam niya, pinapabura niya right away kay Hayden. Ang alam niya burado na.”

    What about a fourth video that is said to be the most graphic?

    Omar says, “Iyan talaga hindi alam ni Katrina. Naka-webcam ata iyon.”

    Omar also says that they’ve spoken to Hayden, who finally admitted to having made four videos. Hayden has also given them the names of the only other people with a copy of these videos—people he is said to strongly suspect caused the upload of the videos on the Net. Katrina’s father and some lawyers are already meeting to help out Katrina. Prominent personalities have also begun to speak up on her behalf.

    But overall, emotions aren’t stable. For a long time, Katrina felt down because her mother, who has not spoken to her because of this scandal, finally got on the phone with her a few days back, only to end up giving her a big, angry sermon. She may deserve it, Omar admits, but it is not something she needs now. In fact, Katrina told Omar, it is something she cannot handle now.

    Then just before she went onboard for the May 16 StarTalk interview, Katrina seemed all right, was neat, and fairly composed, Omar says. But when the questions started coming, she just broke down and couldn’t stop. Everything was captured on TV.

    But more recently, she was buoyed up again, this time by calls from fellow young stars, all of whom felt very badly for her, and the seeming helplessness of it all.

    I said to Omar that I was thankful Katrina was a strong girl. Another girl might have been suicidal by now. But I was taken aback by Omar’s reply. He said, “Natatakot nga ako. Kasi ang batang iyon, pabigla-bigla magdisisyon. At malakas ang loob niyang gawin ang gusto niyang gawin. Kaya hangga’t maaari, ayoko siyang naiiiwan mag-isa. Paggaling ko ng taping, takbo na ako run sa kanya kaagad.”

    THE PRESS. I’m buoyed up myself by colleagues. All the ones I spoke to uniformly feel disgust and sadness with the sex videos. At a press conference for Sharon Cuneta’s latest album of kiddie songs, Children’s Rhymes and Lullabies, I was at a table with various writers. Here is what they had to say:

    Mario Bautista, who writes for the Manila Bulletin, among other print outfits: “Hayden and the people who posted it in the Net should be taken to court.”

    Rowena Agilada, columnist for Tempo: “Nakakaawa si Katrina kasi affected ang career niya. Wala na siyang trabaho. Di na siya kinakausap ng nanay at kapatid.”

    Nora Calderon, contributor to PEP, referring to Hayden Kho: “Wala ba siyang nanay o kapatid na babae?”

    Remy Umerez, columnist for People’s Journal: “Dios na ang bahala sa kanila.”

    Another person at the table was Baby Gil, VIVA Entertainment Inc. vice president for corporate public relations. She said: “The people who did this are sick!”

    I myself thought of all the sickos out there doing harm to Katrina, and I asked myself what the giant GMA-7 is doing for her at this time. She is now in the fight of her life. She’s fighting all these sickos on all fronts, and she needs every bit of help she can get from a company she has served well.

    Finally, I asked Allan Madrilejos, the editor-in-chief of FHM, where Katrina is a favorite cover girl, how he felt. Allan, visibly affected by all this, did not want to say a few inadequate words that were no match for his thoughts. He sent this email instead:

    “Katrina Halili’s thread in the ( is one of the most viewed threads in our forum.

    “That it’s buzzing with tremendous outpouring of support for Katrina in light of the recent and rapid circulation of her controversial sexy videos with Dr. Hayden Kho says so much about how much FHM’s only two-time 100 Sexiest Women in The World Campaign winner is loved.

    “This is not blind love at play here, but understanding, one that is rooted in respect for Katrina, her privacy, her right to defend herself.

    “The unfortunate spread of these sexy videos is totally irresponsible, a low blow that’s very much undeserved. It has come at a time when the issue has been milked dry to its juiciest bit.

    “Yes, we know Katrina has made a mistake. She has bravely and humbly faced the problem head on, coming out on national TV in December and later sitting down with YES! for an exclusive in its March issue.

    “She has sincerely apologized for all the hurt she had caused. Hasn’t she shed enough tears?

    “We at FHM know Katrina to be a survivor and we sincerely wish she’d summon the courage to fight on. How and when she decides to launch her counter-attack is totally up to her.

    “She rightfully deserves a moment to cry, to be outraged, to just be with herself, her family and friends, to evaluate her moves, to pick up the pieces, to move on. It will be a battle, true, but there is strength in knowing there are people who believe in her.

    “We wish this could ease her burden somehow.”

    If words can make things right… I wouldn’t mind pouring in the words and the emotions that would change things around. Not just for Katrina, but for all the other girls violated by these sex videos, and all the girls and boys who will yet be violated, if shame doesn’t visit us all soon.

    Larry, que hacemos con sus noticias sabrosas? I doubt that you can put a dam against scandal once the horses are out the gate. When do people remember “Let those who are without sin cast the first stone?” Don’t get me wrong, I admire you standing for your friends. I don’t know how I can make you feel good, but the ripples have transformed into a tsunami. Too bad for HK, he created his own inferno. Que lastima.

    I saw videos of Hayden Kho, not only with Katrina Halili but also with: (1) a young doctora who is also a TV ad model, and (2) a Brazilian model. On all 3 videos, it is apparent that Hayden Kho purposely hid a camera to capture the dirty deed he was about to engage in with these women — clearly without the knowledge of the women.

    Filming the deed is OK by me (it does make it exciting) BUT it is OK only if both parties are aware of that they are being filmed.

    My gulay… not since the Rudy Fariñas-Vivian Velez betamax scandal in the early 1980s has Manila been scandalized like this. Every Tomas, Ricardo, and Enrique I know is talking about this!

    BOTH doctors are friends of mine, and my private feelings about our secret lives ( thou who doesn’t have hidden desires and outrageous sexual thoughts may cast the first precious stone at ME ) is well, if you’ve got it, don’t flaunt it. Especially in CYBERSPACE and U TUBE.

    My dearest friends are not saints. Golden showers, sado-masochism, ephibophelia and it’s younger sibling, beastiality, scripted and costumed fantasies, fetishists, bis, guys and gals who will do ANYTHING and everything to GET OFF is their inalienable right as human beings. Just do it in the privacy of your spider’s parlour or 5 star hotel rooms or the darkness of a forrest.

    BUT MAY I SAY, the public PIRANHA feeding frenzy of late corning the two DOCTORS is deplorable. It is alleged that closet TV persona non grata NO TWISTED was the one who burglarized doctor’s pad and downloaded it and sold it to DOCTORA for a fat sum. HUDAS daw says my unimpeachable showbiz sources. Wasn’t it he who coined, ” If you want to look like B*Y ABUNDAT, go to…. ”

    I mean for B*ng Re**lla to have a priveledged speech in the unhallowed halls of our SENATE is THE KETTLE CALLING THE POT BLACK. He has videos enough for a library, he is also the urbane legendary womanizer. To call to arms and arrest the doctor is a bit of OVERKILL.

    To revoke his license as a doctor would be tantamount to killing the doctor.

    WHY are we FILIPINOS so quick to JUDGE. The wit Our Lord Jesus, ” JUDGE NOT that ye MAY NOT BE JUDGED.

    I say cut the two some slack, they have been through the meat grinder and have been all but been blown to smithereens.


    WE are all believers of the vilest, most juicy GOSSIP. Without questioning ourselves or checking our moral compasses. We do this DAILY. Porque ?

    AS I have begun, LET the person who has not enjoyed forbidden videos, glimpses of pornography in cell phones or DVD, be the first to STONE this loving, healing couple whose only sin was to fall madly in love with one another.

    Thank you, Miss Philippines. Applause
