Vicky Belo-Boy Abunda: Let The “Games” Begin
Let the Games Begin– a line we usually hear from The Olympics where olympians battle for olympic medals, especially Gold, in honor of their homelands. This time, I feel that the line is fitting for the persons concerned in this blog.
The Philippine showbiz has yet another sizzling controversy to offer. Boy Abunda is now on the hot seat while Vicki Belo remains to be grilled when the latter expressed a harsh comment, which everyone thinks is quite an un-called for remark. When asked about the competition in the industry of cosmetic surgery, particularly that of using showbiz endorsers, Vicki Belo told Mo Twister that she started the trend, quoting her exact phrase:
“If you want to look like Boy Abunda, go to Calayan. But if you want to look like Dingdong Dantes or Piolo Pascual, go to Vicky Belo,” to which a senseless Mo Twister laughed and agreed on saying, “That is really true.”
This issue led Boy Abunda’s friends and supporters to come to his rescue. A furious Ricky Lo was quick to note that Vicki Belo was not only lacking in tact but her manners reveal her being an unprofessional doctor, saying that she is more aptly branded as a “trying hard nymphet.” In the defense of Boy Abunda, Ricky Lo even turned the tables on by ending his column with a sarcastic comment:
“If you don’t mind looking like Vicki Belo, go to her clinic. But if you want to look gorgeous lik Ruffa Gutierrez, Pops Fernandez and Rufa Mae Quinto, by all means go to Mikaela!”
Vicki Belo, you just woke the sleeping giants with your tactless remark! Bring it on, girl and let the games begin. :P Meantime, here’s the video of the said interview of Vicki Belo at Showbiz Central.
