Hosts of Showbiz Central Defend Vicki Belo

In the "Opinion Central" segment of Showbiz Central last Sunday afternoon, the hosts of the kapuso talk show Pia Guiano, John Lapuz, Raymond Gutierrez and Mo Twister defended Vicki Belo regarding her infamous statement last week that insulted her rival's endorser Boy Abunda.

Here is the excerpt of the transcript from “Opinion Central” yesterday:

Raymond Gutierrez (Belo endorser): “I think it only becomes negative if you put negativity behind it becaue if you think about it, if you drive along EDSA, makikita mo ang image ni Boy Abunda under the Calayan name and makikita mo ang image ni Dingdong Dantes and Piolo Pascual under the Belo name.”

Pia Guianio (Calayan endorser): “Kung may malisya ang pagkaintindi mo sa kanya pwede siyang maging negative. But if you take it as Vicki said it, it’s all about who you see as the endorsers in the billboards…ang pagiging endorser is not all about being the most gorgeous, the most beautiful, the sexiest. Ang pagiging endorser po has everything to do with the fact na credible ka na mag-endorso at magsabi na ang produktong ito ay maganda at magaling. For me, i know he’s our competitor, but i think that Boy Abunda whether you like it or not is a pretty credible person. So if he is a Calayan endorser he could be saying that Calayan is good, Calayan is safe, Calayan is dependable.

Mo Twister (Vicki’s friend): Yung sinabi ni Vicki naman wasn’t a direct insult. It was funny. Kaya ako tumatawa nung narinig ko dahil i knew at the very moment she said it that will be an iconic line for a long long time. this is gonna be a line that a lot of people will remember. I think that’s why Boy Abunda is so angry and not just angry, but really over-reacting to the line. Boy you are over-reacting too much. The crying, it wasn’t a direct insult. Dapat paninidigan mo ang pagiging endorser ng Calayan…

John Lapuz (Calayan endorser): Nakikisimpatiya ako kay Kuya Boy sa intrigang ito. Nakarelate ako and i was deeply touched about it because the same thing happened to me last Tuesday…
