Top 10 Things We Learned From the Claudine Barretto & Raymart Santiago vs. Mon Tulfo Debacle
The equally nutty things we learned from the hottest celebrity brawl of the moment.
Published on: May 10, 2012 - 1:00pm


( On Sunday, May 6, Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist and TV5 host Ramon Tulfo and showbiz couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto, along with their friends, figured in a "rumble" at the at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport's Terminal 3. By now, everyone knows each party's version of what happened. It may be some time before we know what really went down at the airport that day. Still, we've written down the things we've learned (so far) from the tragicomic fracas.



You pretty much give up your privacy when you decide to get into showbiz.

10. It's better to be a silent control freak than a loud bitch, especially if you're a celebrity. The price of fame includes being fair game for anyone who wants to comment on or record what you do when you're out in public. Public places would include airports and other spots where anyone can take photos or videos of you having a fit. To avoid a luggage-related meltdown, hand-carry everything, says columnist Jessica Zafra in "How Not To Be in an Airport Altercation:" She writes, "Delayed or lost baggage is a frequent problem. If you can manage it, travel light and bring only cabin luggage. Yes, hand-carry everything." Zafra also points out two things: How much luggage do you need to go to the beach anyway?" and "Put your valuables and your medication in your cabin luggage." Our tip: Buy a plane ticket for your luggage. Treat it like another passenger. They won't offload it unless it's being unruly.



It's more fun...when there's no CCTV cam. (Not yet anyway.)

9. The Ninoy Aquino International Airport's Terminal 3 is not fully equipped with CCTV cameras. It's nice that NAIA 3 manager Octavio "Bing" Linafor was honest enough to admit that there's no CCTV camera in the baggage carousel area of the airport. On the other hand, the admission is probably making drug syndicates, terrorist groups, human trafficking perpetrators, and other criminals very happy.

    Lesson 11: Be sure that when you document a celebrity throwing tantrums in the public, you know how to use the video function of your phone.

    Lesson 12: When in a rough spot, hide behind your kids.

    Lesson 13: When all else fails, break down and cry...

    While cebu pacific is also at fault with the issue that started it all, Claudine did not have any right to speak ill of the ground crew. She should have been objective enough to realize it. She has every right to be angry because of the situation but not at the front liners(ground crew). It does not take a genius to know that.

    Just like any other company, Cebu Pacific has a customer service/complaints department where a passenger can express their concerns regarding anything related to the company.

    1 - Kahit kailan, kapag inuna ang init ng ulo, wala matinong napatutunguhan.
    2 - Kung ayaw mong ma-iskandalo, huwag kang mag-iskandalo.
    Yun ang dalawa sa mga pinaka-importanteng lesson sa pangyayari ng ito.

    How come cebu pacific's bad service is being ignored here? I think there is too much hilight on the brawl that cebu pacific is escaping from their "irresponsibilities"!

    You forgot the mention Cebu Pacific's contribution in all these.. off loading of passengers baggage despite of a limit set for each passenger to make sure the plane will not overload. their priority must have been the commercial load. this is not a flight with many stop overs..
