RICHARD YAP was obviously MIFFED when Fashion Pulis took a swipe at him via a blind item which said that he took advantage of his fans’ generosity by making parinig on his Twitter account about the gadgets and gifts that he would want to receive.
At his launch as one of the endorsers of Krem-Top Coffee Creamer, Richard was MAN ENOUGH to defend himself from the blind item.
“I’ve heard that and if you can go through all my tweets ay wala akong hinihingi sa kahit na kanino. As much as possible ‘pag me nagsabi na ‘what do you want?’ ang sinasabi ko ‘you don’t need to bring anything,’” Richard explained.
When we asked about his reaction on the website operator ay matapang ang kanyang naging pahayag.
“That guy has no credibility and I’m saying this on his face. I won’t waste my time on him, ‘di ba? He is supposed to be an educated person. He is from La Salle and he’s Chinese but with what he’s doing he’s bringing down the name of the institution he’s working for, his being a Chinese,” walang kagatul-gatol niyang sabi.
More than hurt, sinabi ni Richard na napikon siya sa banat sa kanya dahil ito ay baseless.
“At saka lahat ng meron ako ay meron na ako nu’ng hindi pa ako pumasok ng showbiz. ‘Yung bahay ko, ‘yung mga kotse ko… Hindi ako nagba-brag. When I was still in kindergarten ay may Rolex na ako so I don’t have to ask from anyone and kaya kong trabahuhin lahat ito. Sa tingin ba niya, ang binibigay ng fans ‘yun lang ang ano ang gusto kong hingin sa fans?”
We believe him. He’s not the type na mamamalimos ng regalo sa fans. He’s a well-traveled guy, moneyed even before he took a plunge in showbusiness.
Sabi ni Richard as Krem-Top is promoting Change for the better Pilipinas campaign, malaki na ang kanyang ipinagbago.
“Siguro it has allowed me to become a better person, to be more patient. Nu’ng bata ako ay nagmamadali ako palagi. Parati akong on the go. I think this has helped me to have the virtue of patience, ‘di lang patience for myself but for other people also.”
NAGMUKHANG THIRD world network ang ABS-CBN kumpara sa GMA-7.
Why? It’s because mas na-afford pa ng Siyete ang magbigay ng Christmas party for the movie press kaysa sa Dos.
Hindi bale na ang TV5, alam naman ng lahat na nalulugi ‘yan at hindi talaga nagre-rate ang mga shows, pero ang ABS-CBN na number one network na kumikita ng bilyon-bilyon ay hindi pala maka-afford kahit na simpleng Christmas party sa press na kanilang inabala para i-promote ang mga shows nilang bordering on IDIOCY and LUNACY.
And since when has helping been OBLIGATORY and not VOLUNTARY?
Sabi kasi ng PR ng Dos ay ibibigay na lang ang Christmas party fund para sa Yolanda victims. Talaga lang, ha?
And since when has a network been a CHARITABLE INSTITUTION, aber?
