Some may say that "scandal" is Ethel Booba's middle name.
5. The Ethel Booba-Alex Crisano Video
Scandal Status: Real (Somewhat confirmed by at least one party who is directly involved.)
In 2005, a video clip surfaced of comedienne Ethel Booba stimulating herself, with her then boyfriend, basketball player Alex Crisano holding the cellphone used for filming the supposedly private scene. A Manila Bulletin Online article explained: "(The sex video leak) came about after Crisano had his cellphone repaired at a shop in Greenhills and the technician apparently saw (the clip). Crisano has reportedly threatened to get even with the technician." In the same article, Booba revealed that she suspected that Crisano's reportedly estranged wife Michelle was behind the leak. Michelle dismissed Booba's accusations but she went on The Buzz to confirm that it was indeed Crisano's voice that could be heard on the video.
