Regrets

by: rddantes March 30, 2010 | 75 Comments |

American broadcast journalist Barbara Walters was asked by the Toronto Star about the one regret she has in her long professional career. Her answer? A series of questions she asked a Latin pop heart throb 10 years ago. “In 2000, I pushed Ricky Martin very hard to admit if he was gay or not, and the way he refused to do it made everyone decide that he was. A lot of people say that destroyed his career, and when I think back on it now I feel it was an inappropriate question.”

    he will never do it. he is way too scared to come out. scaredy cat, scaredy cat. remember how he cried like a baby during the sex video brouhaha.

    if i were piolo di rin ako aamin. kasi naman pag gamit lang ng condom ang laki nang issue sa atin, lalo na kung mag-oout pa siya.

    di naman sa takot si piolo mag ladlad, di lang siguro ready ang majority ng mga pilipino makatangap ng ganitong klaseng balita.

    sana lang kasi maging bukas na ang pag-iisip ng mga pilipino at wag masyado mag paka manang

    i have a dream pair in bed: piolo and ricky martin. sana magmeet sila, i’m sure they will like each other because both are physically attractive. ang gandang panuorin ng sex video of them together. hahaha

    kay ricky martin ang kwento pero si piolo pascual ang nakalagay na picture? bakit kaya may mga taong hindi marunong rumespeto sa decision ng iba? kung bading man si piolo at ayaw nya mag out eh decision nya yun.. hay ang mga bading talaga dito ang kikitid ng utak.. kung nag ladlad kayo choice nyo yun.. kung yung iba ayaw choice nila yun! grow-up mga baklang puro kalibugan lang ang alam gawin! kaya kayo tinatawag na salot eh!

    di sya pwede umamin. di sya papayagan ng ABS-CBN. tsaka kahit dingbads yan pinagkakakitaan sya at marami pa ring bilat ang naghuhubad ng panty para sa kanya. that’s why no way na lalantad yan. But of course alam nating lahat na nakarelasyon nya si Eric Quizon, JM Rodriguez and Sam Milby. At marami syang hinada na mga ABS-CBN boy starlets. Remember Aljo Bendijo? kaya napatalsik sa ABS-CBN news team kc tumanggi maka-on ang closeta.

    Bakit naman aamin si Piolo kung walang aaminin? Bakit pinipilit siya sa paraang gusto ninyo. Sino ba kayo? Gaano ninyo talaga kakilala si Piolo? Aamin siya para lang masiyahan at matuwa kayo? Kayo na wala namang ginagawang masama ang tao pero hinuhusgahan ninyo. Nakikita ninyo siyang kumilos, nadidinig ninyo siyang magsalita, pero hindi sa lahat ng panahon, tma ang haka-haka ninyo. Why single out Papa P? Ano ba kayo, Diyos? Maghunus dili naman kayo sa paglapastangan sa isang tao.

    Ang pag-a-out ni Piolo ang pinakamalaking pagkakamaling gagawin nya sa career nya. Kung un ngang kapwa nya bakla tulad ng suki sa blog na ‘to, inaalipusta na sya. Paano pa kaya siya tatanggapin ng mayorya ng mga Pilipino.

    Hayaan na lang natin si Piolo na itago nya sa publiko kung ano siya talaga. Marami rin naman sa atin ang katulad nya na me nakatagong sekreto sa mga pamilya natin, mga kaibigan at mga kakilala.

    Hayaan na lang natin ang mga tulad ni RD na enjoy na enjoy sa paglaladlad nya. RD has nothing to lose unlike Piolo. RD is only famous in this blog. Who knows, RD is a closet gay as well….hehehe

    PILIT NA INA-OUT SI PIOLO, EH SAMANTALANG SIYA NGA, DI MAKALAGAY KAHIT PICTURE NIYA SA BLOG NA TO.

    wala naman mawawala sa kanya pag nag-out siya, kasi di naman siya sikat.

    kudos to you rd dahil ina-approve mo maski yung comments na atake sa iyo.

    anyway, magkaiba si ricky kay piolo. yung hesitation dati ni ricky alam mong ayaw nya talaga magsinungaling. si piolo, flat-out (ironically) straight-faced lies at may kasama pang declarations ng panliligaw at biglang sumulpot na anak on the side.

    hindi ko alam kung anong pakay ni rd for posting this article and this pic together, maybe he does regret insinuating that piolo is gay. whatever the reason, hanga pa rin ako kay rd dahil ina-approve niya ang mga comments against him.

    sana dumating ang panahon na di na tayo matakot na ipakita ang tunay na pagkatao.

    piolo is waaaay hot in this picture.

    Please. Ang career ni Ricky INTERNATIONAL at kahit sabihin nating hindi na siya kasing sikat ngayon he still had the courage to admit the truth and in the end mas minahal niya ang sarili niya kesa sa career.

    Si Piolo sa Pilipinas lang sikat, ni hindi nga sa Asian region. Kaya ganyan siya, kakapit at kakapit siya sa konti niyang ipong milyong-milyong piso. Ganyan talaga ang buhay — mas maliit ka mas sugapa ka sa kakaunting kasikatan mo.

    Mabuhay si Ricky. Si Piolo… pakialam ko! Basta ako, masaya, dahil nakakalad ako sa kalsada kasama ang boyfriend ko, sampung taon na kaming magkasama at open kaming pareho sa mga magulang namin, sa mga kaibigan, sa mundo.

    Yup I agree.. please lang mga sistah.. wag nyo na pag aksayahan ng panahon si Papa P. Alam naman ng lahat na mujer sya eh.. so bakit nyo pa kelangan marinig from his mouth na gay sya???

    It doesnt mean na gay ka eh kelangan mo na mag ladlad. Kung masaya ka naman being closeted eh then theres no need to shout in the whole world na ur gay. Each of us have a choice… Kung gusto mo mag out eh mag out ka… KUNG AYAW NI PIOLO eh TANTANAN NYO NA SYA! PWE! mga utak talangka! kaya di umuunlad pilipinas dahil sa mga gaya nyo!

    I’m happy for you and your partner if you are out to your family and friends. However, lets not forget there is still a stigma associated with being gay in your Catholic country. Coming out is a personal thing depending on your situation in life. I live in Los Angeles, and I’m open to my gay friends, and to my siblings but not to all my friends, especially work associates even though the company I work for does not discriminate based on sexual orientation. I just don’t feel it right for me to be openly gay to every one. I respect Ricky Martin for coming out. Same way that I respect Piolo, Jody Foster, Anderson Cooper, and others for staying in the closet. For some it comes easy to come out while it may not be for others. Lets not be judgmental.

    When you come out you are ready to tell and face the world about who you are.

    its a take it or leave it situation, hindi sa taong mag – oout sa mga taong makakaproblema kung mag oout siya.

    you don’t tell the world your gay because the whol world told you to do so.

    you tell the world your gay because you are comfortable with your self and you dont give a damn to those people who can’t accept who you are.

  38. Kulit says:

    There is a big difference between American and Philippine society. Sa U.S. acceptable yung ginawa ni Ricky Martin and for him it’s business as usual. Sa Pilipinas, pag ginawa ni Piolo yun say goodbye to his career and image nya. Common, I am not a fan of Piolo but the guy deserves respect hindi nya kayo binabalahura. Get a life! In Philippine society where using condom is such an issue, gay celebrities trying to act normal as is will be condemned kaya walang aamin na may matinong image na kagaya ni Piolo sa Pilipinas.

  39. Anonymous says:

    di na kailangang mag out pa si piolo because his past supercedes coming out. his management probably is not ready to do this, piolo probably is not set to do this (poor boy, the truth shall set him free), but this is no big deal for the public due to the following: a) it is no big deal to be gay nowadays b) it is a known fact about piolo anyway.

    kung umamin si piolo at maging consequence nun e masira ang career nya, mawalan siya ng endorsements at maging butt of jokes siya ng bawat kanto sa pinas, magiging masaya ba kayo para sa kanya? di nyo alam ang fears at apprehensions na pinagdadaanan nya(kung meron man!) dahil wala kayo sa posisyon nya! what does he have to gain kung aamin sya? respect from a few who understand? and ridicule from people who are just happy to see someone else down?! parang di nyo pinagdaanan kahit paano ang pinagdadaanan ng mga gay na nasa closet pa rin, masaya kayo that you came out, but remember nung times na hindi kayo sure kung ano magiging reaction ng friends and family nyo, imagine him living in that situation for almost all his life, di ba imbes na insultuhin siya, dapat mas intindihin natin yun kasi alam nating mahirap ang nasa ganung situation. Im not in the same situation as he is, but still, takot ako umamin kasi I have a lot to lose, maaring tanggap na ng society ang gays, but marami pa rin dito ang mababa ang tingin sa mga gays, and worst is people still think of stereotypes when they talk about gays, at aminin natin, di maganda ang gay stereotypes dito sa atin.

    i so hate piolo for being too fancy yet so discreet but i believe no one has any right to force him to come out in the open. he has the right to remain silent, if only to protect himself from the total wrath he’s gonna get by keeping his skeleton inside the closet. let him be. we all have our own.

    Ricky Martin did’nt come out at the height of his popularity. His CD with the huge hit single “Livin’ La Vida Loca” was released in 1999. There were sightings with male companions, and allegations of his homosexuality over the years, and yet it took 11 years before he came out at the age of 38. In the music world Ricky is considered a “has been” except perhaps in his native Puerto Rico. His last CD was released many moons ago, and i have not heard any new one in the making. The time was right to come out as he has nothing much to lose. One thing most beckies forget is that the Western world, especially Europe, is more tolerant of gays. Look at Elton John, and George Michael although either one is not as hot as Ricky in my opinion. The Asian culture is not as accepting of gays. More so in Catholic Philippines. I wish Filipinos would have a “live and let live” attitude like the Brazilians, the most populous Catholic country in the world.

  69. Anonymous says:

    Naiinggit lang kayo kay Piolo kasi Piolo has a life. If he is gay, I’m pretty sure he is enjoying the gay life with people he cares about and people who don’t care about his sexuality. In front of the camera, he can do his job well. He has a great private life and great professional life. Mga tao lang yata ang naaawa sa kanya for not being “free” and “true to himself”. Yun ang akala ninyo.

  70. Allan says:

    To all the hypocrites out there asking for Piolo to come out. You would be more credible if you come out in this forum yourself first. State your real name and address and admit that you are gay. Do you have this courage to come out in public? Aren’t you damned worried what your family, employer, friend would say? For every finger you point at Piolo, three fingers are pointing back at you. It’s his own decision and when he feels, it’s the right time to do it, he will. Piolo doesn’t owe you anything.

    piolo will come out pag hindi na sikat, at least pagkakitahan din nya yan, and if the time will come, tsura na bebe g. sa coming out drama nya. watch out boy abunda! mapapahiya ka once piolo will come out.

    takot lang ni pioling mag-out, kasi ang daming masasabit sa abs-cbn top brass, gaya ni: lauren dyogi. nakita ko sila las vegas.

  73. John says:

    Why do you need to know if Piolo is gay or not? His family should know. His friends should know, too. I’m sure they do. But if you’re not even his friend, what gives you the right to know? Really. Coming out is so OVERRATED. Gay Pride supporters are the most bitter. They can’t accept that those who “won’t come out” are having the most fun.
