Rhian Ramos and Mo Twister

Just a month after the controversial video of Mo Twister that caused Rhian’s camp to file charges against the TV-host, another video of Rhian Ramos and Mo Twister is circulating in the internet. This time, the video shows the ex-couple having some intimate moments on the bed.

In the video, Mo says, “Hi, this is me…this is my girlfriend…this is her computer…”

Rhian exchanges sweet words with Mo and openly tells her ex-bf that she loves him.

“Baby, I love you…” Rhian says to Mo.

Mo replies saying, “…and your sexy body”

Valerie Concepcion’s Tweet Stirred Negative Reactions on PNoy

Valerie Concepcion

Valerie Concepcion apologized to netizens after her tweets stating that PNoy was partying with the PSG resulted to many negative reactions.

Valerie was an invited guest at the Presidential Security Group (PSG) Christmas party where she was asked to perform for the PSG along with Jessa Zaragosa whom she mentioned in her tweets.

In one of her tweets, she said, “It was nice to see Pres. P-Noy laughing at my jokes & enjoying my performance.”

The controversial tweet which Valerie posted caused the Twitter followers to react on PNoy’s insensitivity despite the recent onslaught brought about by typhoon Sendong in CDO and Iligan City.

The actress was quick to respond upon learning that her tweet had stirred reactions and caused people to be furious on president Noynoy.

Meanwhile, Valerie already deleted the said tweet which she posted, and posted another tweet in response to the negative reactions made by people in her tweet. In her tweet, she said,

“I just want to clarify that I was invited to perform at Malacañang‘s Christmas Party for their employees with their husbands/wives and kids. Yes, the president attended the gathering. I do not see anything wrong with that since it’s his obligation and responsibility being the head of Malacañang to be present and show his support for his hardworking employees and their respective families. But I believe that it doesn’t mean that the president is not thinking of ways to help our kababayan(s) in Mindanao. It doesn’t mean that the president is disregarding the plight of our fellow Filipinos. Let’s not be too quick to judge.

“…But if I, in any way, offended you guys and sounded insensitive, I am very sorry. It wasn’t my intention to do either. I can’t imagine how difficult life is for the people affected in Mindanao and how difficult it is to be the president of the Philippines at this moment. Once again, I am very sorry for all those people I have offended. May God bless us all.”

Mo Twister revealed in a radio interview  that he was traumatized by the leaked video which he recorded himself as some sort of a personal diary of his anxieties over their (he and ex-gf Rhian Ramos) decision to resort to abortion.

In his statement aired at Showbiz Rampa last December 4, Sunday, he said:

“I’m saddened about the rumors of its upload.

“Most of all, I’m ashamed at myself for the loss of our child.

“It was something I never wanted to happen.”

Mo also expressed his disappointment over his ex-gf’s manager saying,

“It has hurt me almost as much as the deed itself…

“When I went to them to seek their help and comfort, all the focus was put on her career and her body image.

“I was told that the baby wasn’t even a baby, even though I was present during the ultra sound, heard the heartbeat of our 3 ½ month old child, saw it being formed into a young human being.

“I was even more shocked when she was being referred to as a ‘brand’…”

According to Mo, the reason why he made the video was to have “a memento of this tragic event…”

“…it should never happen again,” Mo said as he expressed his views

“It was meant for me to always remind myself that we paid an enormous sacrifice for this job and this relationship.”

He also said, “They thought a lawyer was needed to aid in our breakup, that I was asked to surrender all of this ‘proof’ to them for it to be destroyed.

“I naturally gave in to their request, because for the second time, I chose my girlfriend over the memory of our child.

“I specifically asked them to not destroy it, to please return it to me 50 years from now when all this showbiz priorities and ‘branding’ wouldn’t mean so much anymore.

“Along with my files, they took my computer and erased it in front of me.

“This was all documented by her legal staff.”

“This decision to have an abortion was not something the network instructed us to do.”

“that our rollercoaster relationship ended the way it did.”

In Mo’s final statement, he said, “I will never, ever agree to take the life of a child again.

“It doesn’t matter if it isn’t my body or my choice.

“I will not be put against the wall again.

“I should have stood my ground, fought harder, delayed it longer, encourage more people to talk her out of it.”

“Until this very day, I love Rhian very much.”

Meanwhile, accordingly, Rhian’s camp is planning to file charges against Mo Twister.

Homemade Pizza!!!

4 Comments

I was just taking my time off yesterday strolling around town when I decided to bake pizza for dinner. I suddenly had this crave for pizza so I went to look for a readily-made dough at a local bakery store. Luckily, I found it somewhere nearby and it was very affordable-1 pack with 4 pieces of dough costs 22 pesos or half a dollar.

I then headed straight into the grocery to buy some stuff  for the pizza toppings when I realized that it was already dark. So, I rushed home and surprised Kurty and Ryan that our dinner would be pizza. As expected, they both complained why the heck only pizza for dinner. Well, I was already expecting that kind of reaction from them–the hungry boys need something more than pizza. Oh Well, I only ate pizza for dinner while the boys ate rice and ham, and of course, the pizza.

We had satisfied our hungry palates as we devoured every slice of it. I was absolutely full and I was overly pleased with how my boys enjoyed the pizza I baked.
