ABS-CBNNews.com reports that on Saturday, June 23, actress-host Ruffa Gutierrez said she will no longer be part of the "trashy reporting" of Paparazzi, and announced she has officially quit the entertainment talk show on TV5.

 

Thr report detailed what had happened: "During the June 23 episode of the show, Gutierrez’s co-hosts-Cristy Fermin, Zoren Legaspi, Mariel Rodriguez and Jeffrey "Mr. Fu" Espiritu-took turns in whispering questions to the former beauty queen, such that viewers would not hear what had been asked. All four questions required Gutierrez to pick among three options for an answer-the names of her former boyfriends, Aga Muhlach, Legaspi, and Robin Padilla. One of the questions partly heard on air was ’Who has the biggest...?’" Gutierrez had excliamed: "I am not answering that. Wala akong alam diyan (I don’t know anything about that). Next question. Hindi ko sasagutin ’yan (I am not answering that)." She had then stood up and thanked her supporters so no other questions were asked.

 

Later that same day, on Twitter, Gutierrez posted this message: "From this day on, I will no longer be part of Paparazzi. I will never tolerate DISRESPECT in any form done to me, to my children or to my beloved viewers."

 

Meanwhile in an InterAksyon.com report, Mr. Fu said, "I apologize to Ruffa if she got offended. For the record, I did not mention any foul terms in Paparazzi's 'Bulong' segment. It was the same question that I asked other guests who became part of the segment. The writers and staff did not intend to ruin her birthday celebration. It was all for fun, but again I am sorry if things turned out this way. I am still proud of our show Paparazzi because I know I am working with hardworking and talented people."
