Boy Abunda reacts to Vicki Belo's insulting remark

Dra. Vicki Belo may have patched things up with Kris Aquino, but not in the soonest time with former endorser and friend Boy Abunda.

On Showbiz Central last Sunday, she had her first live interview with Mo Twister and to the surprise of many, she said something which was sort of a promo for her Belo Medical Group, as a joke but turned out to be an insulting remark to Boy Abunda.

“All I’d like to say is, if you want to look like Boy Abunda, go to Calayan, But if you want to look like Dingdong Dantes and Piolo Pascual, come to Belo," Dra. Vicki said.

It could have meant a different thing if Vicki said The Coverboys instead of Boy Abunda.

Boy wasn't able to react about it on his Sunday show The Buzz but on last night's edition of SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon, he could not hide his dismay and disheartenment over Dra. Belo's statement.

“Vicki, if you are watching, alam mo kahit kailan, hindi ako namuhunan sa gandang panlabas dahil wala ako noon. Alam mo, namuhanan ako ng sipag, tiyaga, dasal. At Vicki, wala akong ilusyong maganda, wala akong ilusyon. Pero wala din sinuman ang may karapatang manlait sa aking pagkatao," said Boy.

“Last night, 10 o’clock in the evening I got a call from my nanay from Samar. Sabi niya ‘hindi lang ako mapakali, sagutin mo lang ito: mayroon ka bang ginawa kay Dr. Belo at ginagawa ka niyang katawa-tawa?’. Wala po akong ginawang masama kay Vicki Belo," he continued.

Boy was teary-eyed and visibly hurt by the insult.

"Vicki if you are watching, you know that I did not do anything bad to you to deserve this insult. Wala akong ginawa sa iyo," he added.

"Nay if you are watching, wala po akong ginagawa dahil narating ko itong maliit na ispasyo dito sa industriya na walang tinapakan.”

“At mga kaibigan, hindi po tayo kasi kailangang maging kasing-gwapo ni Dingdong para maging masaya at para maging mabuting tao”, Boy ended his speech and the camera caught him wiping his tears before the commercial gap.


Willie Revillame and Joey de Leon are up against each other once more in an exchange of side remarks in their respective noontime shows. It all started when Willie commented via a live phone patch on Wowowee where he indirectly accused Eat Bulaga of copying their show's opening format and he said that Wowowee is better than their rival show.

Joey reacted during the press con of his new show on GMA, Joey's Quirky World, "May sakit na nga, walanghiya pa rin.”

"Wag na nating pag-usapan ang walang kakuwenta-kuwentang bagay na ‘yan,” Joey said, but he already talked about it.

  1. It only proves that Vicki Belo’s business is only focused on the physical aspect. She did not realize that standards of physical beauty are set just by the society and it evolves as time goes by. As matter of fact, we may not notice that sometime we adore people not because of physical endowments but on the accomplishments in life which are directly attributed to wit, talent, wisdom and etc..Boy is an example of that. This incident also prevailed who is Vicki Belo when not in public. She has no right to poke fun at people because even she cannot be considered as a model for a cosmetic surgery clinic. My apologies for this statement: but with all the surgeries she undergone, her physical beauty is still far from the standards….

  2. Wisdom and talent? Boy Abunda? Are you kidding?
