ANG SINASABING DIALOGUE ni Kris Aquino kay Ruffa Gutierrez kaya siya nag-walk out sa last episode niya sa The Buzz last Sunday ay: “Ruffa aminin mo ibang level ang saya rito!” to which sinagot ni Ruffa, “Well, I know you don’t have to rub it in, Kris. Sad din, you know sana ‘wag mo namang dagdagan.” After that gap, nag-babu na sa show si Ruffa.
Dito na rumatsada ng kanyang reaction ang mother-manager na si Annabelle Rama sa Showbiz Central, laban kay Kris, in defense of Ruffa.
Kinabukasan (Lunes), nag-release si Kris ng kanyang statement, saying na wala siyang ill-intentions kay Ruffa. Narito ang ilang bahagi nito:
“I would like to extend a loving hug to Ruffa. I viewed the tape and although I still feel I gave my comment with affection, maybe it made her feel even worse because she is now moving in a new direction. We had what I believed was a good working relationship in the almost two years we were together on The Buzz.
“To Ruffa, I sincerely apologize for causing you hurt… We celebrate women who triumphed despite odds and need to look at ways to further improve. That’s why I want Ruffa to have a great career ahead of her—because she is a woman raising two beautiful daughters. And I champion all women who triumph despite the odds—just like my own mom…
“As a woman and as Ruffa’s mom and the lola of Lorin and Venice, I respect you Tita Annabelle and on behalf of our family I apologize for the distress we caused yours. Hindi po ako mayabang, kaya ako nagpapakumbaba ngayon…
“I love my family and I’m so grateful to have such a supportive and grounded brother and sisters who have learned to love me for all that I am. May God bless all of us with a peaceful week ahead.”
TO THE RESCUE naman ang kapatid ni Ruffa na si Raymond Gutierrez sa sarili nitong Twitter account. Ito ay nu’ng Sunday mismo, bago pa nakapag-apologize si Kris kinabukasan.
Matapang ang pahayag na ito ni Raymond, saying na kung isang beses lang daw nangyari ito ay okey lang, pero ibang usapan na kung every week na.
“Some people want all the spotlight and can be really tactless. I’m happy that my co-hosts here in Central show equal respect for each other.
“When you’re trying to get the whole nation to be on your side, don’t be a bully.
“Take it as a joke if it happens once, but being bullied every week is a different story. How do you spell P-O-W-E-R T-R-I-P-P-I-N-G?”
“I’m all about friendship, ask anyone, but there comes a time when you reach a saturation point, where you need to stand up and speak out. At the end of the day, all you really have is your family. Spending some quality time with them tonight. Peace,” post ni Raymond.
NAGKAROON TULOY NG matinding impact ang pagpasok ni Ruffa sa TV-5 na tila pagrereynahan niya, although pasok rin sa network ang mas “Senior Queen” sa kanya na si Maricel Soriano for her drama specials.
As for Ruffa, resident judge na ito ng Talentadong Pinoy – na tulad ng Pilipinas Got Talent ay magiging Saturday and Sunday na rin. Resident judge rin si Kris ng PGT, at host pa rin ng The Buzz na tatapatan naman ng Paparazzi ng Singko na iho-host ni Ruffa.
Kasama ni Ruffa sa Paparazzi sina Cristy Fermin at Mo Twister. Pasok na rin si Tita Cristy as host of Juicy, kasama ang “napigilang mag-resign” na si Alex Gonzaga at IC Mendoza.
Ngayong March 25 ang trade launch at presscon ng new TV-5 shows.
So, it’s Kris vs Ruffa na nga!
