As if it still mattered, several tabloids took in the libel case filed by showbiz mom & talent manager ANNABELLE RAMA against her own talent and daughter of now her ‘mortal enemy’ Nadia Montenegro. Allegedly , YNNA ASSISTIO chattered away to a certain Janice Navida some intricate details of Rama’s pimping attempts on her and a sister. Here is an excerpt of what Navida wrote: “Tinanong namin si Ynna tungkol sa isyung ‘bugawan’ na inaakusa ng mommy niya kay Tita A. “Nadamay din kasi ru’n ang pangalan ni Cong. Manny Pacquiao dahil inirereto raw ni Tita Annabelle sa Pambansang Kamao si Alyanna na 16 years old lang pala. Ano bang basehan nila para sabihing ‘ibinubugaw’ ni Tita A. ang mga alaga niya, especially silang magkakapatid? Sey ni Ynna, “Minsan po kasi, isinama siya sa bahay nina Cong. Manny at Gov. Chavit (Singson),” na hindi naman niya dinagdagan ng ibang detalye. Basta sabi ni Ynna, ang gusto raw ni Tita A. ay maikli ang isinusuot nila ‘pag humaharap sa mga tao sa special occasions tulad nu’ng minsang birthday ni Cong. Pacquiao. Eh, siya, ganu’n din ba ang sinasabi sa kanya ni Tita A.? “May mga personal experience rin po ako pero ‘di na ako magsasalita,” sagot ni Ynna. May isang insidente naman daw sa Cebu na isinama silang magkakapatid ni Tita A. at ipinakilala sa mga “may-edad” nang bisita nito sabay sabing, “Single ang mga ‘yan.” From then on, umiwas na raw sila at hindi na sumama uli sa mga lakad ng manager dahil feeling nga raw nila ay ‘ibinebenta’ sila nito.
It is quite difficult to muster that Ms. Asistio merely fabricated the whole story. In fairness to her, there have indeed been several instances in the past that Rama had been implicated with such accusation even in the late 80s. This is basically like ‘opening a can of worms’, since if ever Manny Pacquiao will be summoned to shed light on this allegation, it is a likability that he will be spilling the truth, especially now that the pugilist/congressman is a self-declared man of the Bible. It seems that Rama is ill-advised since her rather disturbing public display of anger epitomizes that seedy and questionable character that she is. She even make it appear that she is the one who is being harassed when we all see her screaming invectives on national tv. This is a blaring indication of what she is really made of. She should be reminded that money and power cannot buy ALL things. As if to campaign her cause, she is often seen and heard on tv and radio deliberating on mundane and almost inane matters relevant only to her deteriorating stand. On the other hand, if Montenegro urged her daughter to manufacture these stories, then they are all but one and the same characters showbusiness should be wary about and terminate any patronizing act that is required to further their questionable intents! Choz.
