Manila, Philippines – ANNABELLE Rama told “Paparazzi” host Cristy Fermin to keep quiet amid rising tension over the resignation of actress Ruffa Gutierrez from the show.
Rama warned Fermin to keep her allegations in check after the latter insisted that Gutierrez was informed of the segment that caused her to quit the show.
Fermin claimed that Gutierrez “was briefed by the staff” on the interview segment “Bulong ng Palad,” where the former beauty queen was made to answer questions whispered to her by her co-hosts.
But Rama said that while her daughter was briefed on the segment, she allegedly did not know about the “lewd” nature of the questions.
“Nabasa ko ‘yung sulat ni Cristy Fermin na alam daw ni Ruffa. Hindi alam ni Ruffa. Alam ni Ruffa may bulung-bulungan, pero hindi niya akalain ganoong questions. Na-shock siya na ang mga tanong puro kabastusan,” Rama said.
Rama warned the “Paparazzi” co-host to keep quiet lest she provoke a “part 2″ of their feud.
In 2008, Fermin was found guilty of libel – a charge filed against her by Rama – by the Supreme Court. The case stemmed from a 1995 article that appeared in the publication “Gossip Tabloid.”
“Kaya Cristy, tumahimik ka na muna diyan kasi ayoko mag-part two tayo sa ating laban. Wala kang alam ‘day,” Rama said. “Ikaw, isa ka rin sa bumulong ha. Meron akong tape sa bahay, pero hindi kita dinadamay, kasi ang bumulong talaga ng malaswa ‘yung isang bading na kasama mo.” (ABS-CBN News Online)
