Waiting for Cesar Montano to air his side on son’s tirade

As of press time, our friend Cesar Montano has yet to issue an official statement or reply to his son Diego’s laments or more aptly, tirades against him on social media.

Several issues were raised by his teen actor son who even called his own father “duwag” (coward), hypocrite and liar.  Among these issues included Cesar’s broken promises to Diego, the time when Diego was asked to leave the place he was living, and even the item on DNA, short of a shout out to the world that Montano doubts his being Diego’s father.

But, the most disturbing item Diego cried out was his father’s accusation of him being a drug addict. The teen actor even stated that he had already undergone five drug tests to disprove his father’s allegation. All tests were negative.

Diego went on with his tirades as he used some cryptic messages that even talked about “tokhang’’ and related drug arrest and even his death,’ his father, he says, has the connection and powers.

Very disturbing indeed, isn’t it?


Talking about being disturbing, did we, as well as many others, take Kris Aquino’s text to the President seriously?

We are talking about Kris’s reportedly text message to President Rodrigo Duterte on her plea not to send his brother, former President Noynoy Aquino, to jail.

Since the news broke out about, survivors of the slain SAF (Special Action Force) members are still crying for justice. With the President’s recent admission that he’d just wait for the outcome of the cases filed with the Ombudsman, his supporters are getting disturbed. Followers and supporters of the former President believe Noynoy has got nothing to do with the death of the SAF members.

Kris was the very first to react and her move could be described as ridiculous if not stupid at all.

This Kris could not really differentiate the reality from fantasy, as she seems to still be living under magic spells, feng shui and the wonders of the stars and the moon.

She really feels their clan is among the chosen ones and can simply evade even the simplest form of “karma.”

Why can she not she just let the wheels of justice take its course for those that ask for truth and peace?



There is a new show which Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes will be hosting.

It is called Case Solved and it simply talks about court cases that are now solved or have been declared by the highest court with “absolute resolution.”

“But the dramatization makes it a bit exciting. The show’s goal is to be able to impart the legal impediments and remedies and for our audience to understand that there is still hope with our legal system in this country,” was why Dingdong accepted the offer.

Dingdong admitted to be in the process of re-inventing himself as an actor or media practitioner. He is grateful to his network GMA 7, “because they always give me noteworthy projects. Masaya ako dahil lahat binabagay sa akin at sa estado ko ngayon bilang isang family man.”

Case Solved will begin airing on Feb. 18, a Saturday, and will be seen after Eat Bulaga.

This once-a-week show promises to feature only real-life cases ranging from non-aggressive to violent circumstances derived from the Philippines’ Supreme Court Reports Annotated (SCRA), PNP, International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol), judicial agencies like the Department of Justice (DOJ), Supreme Court and Bureau of Corrections.  

More than presenting how the crime is committed, it further explains how the crime is solved.

“I am so challenged as an actor and a person, a Filipino in particular, because I believe this kind of show will not only teach all of us to have faith in our legal system, and the government, but also see the realities of life in the manner to which most of us have a say or take. Madami tayong matutunan kung paano tayo dapat mabuhay ng safe, secure at disente sa mga lipunang kinabibilangan natin,” explained Dingdong.
