On January 28: So many people don't know what rape is!! Akala niyo ba rapists are a certain type of people? RAPISTS CAN BE ANYONE. Common sense lang. Rape happens. How do we know? Not because the rapist tells anyone, but because THE VICTIMS do. A rapist who gets away with raping once will rape again. And again. You think they stop because they feel bad? Protect yourself from ignorance.

On January 30: To set the record straight, my comments on rape are my personal opinion, please do not speculate or take my tweets out of context. Thank you.

Full text: Thank you for protecting me and watching out for me but it doesn't mean that just because someone looks like my ex, he's abusive na! Allow me to live my life! I've learned from my past & if life teaches me more lessons, then be there for me. Support me!

Cesca Litton, TV host, on her the wedding bump-off issue

Full text: Before you start tweeting about my wedding, please verify facts. The issue here is not Heart nor Chiz, it's the way Balesin handled it. Every bride deserves her special day. No one needs bashing, judging, or unsolicited advice from people who know NOTHING of the situation. Let both parties move on, plan their respective weddings, and just wish them well because marriage is such a beautiful blessing. I hope everyone moves on, because anyone who has planned a wedding knows how stressful it is. Be happy for them, for us. God bless you.

I was really looking forward to working with and playing vs Gilas to help them get ready for the World Cup. I was also looking forward to helping MVP Sports, PLDT and EWP raise funds to support those effected by typhoon Yolanda. When EWP approached me about partnering w/ MVP + PLDT for this event, I knew they had intentions of doing something great for the people! Don't worry, I plan on being back in Manila next year. I look forward to coming back again and doing clinics, appearances and and hopefully I'll be able to actually play in an NBA sanctioned game against the Gilas teams next season!
