Mel Tiangco recalls her tiff with ABS-CBN: "Feeling ko, para akong ipis nun."

Gorgy Rula of PEP.ph reports that when GMA news anchor Mel Tiangco was asked if she would like to have life story dramatized on her show, Magpakailanman, she said she could only think of one "episode" in her life when she felt like she was down and out.

Gorgy Rula of PEP.ph reports that when GMA news anchor Mel Tiangco was asked if she would like to have life story dramatized on her show, Magpakailanman, she said she could only think of one "episode" in her life when she felt like she was down and out. The report quoted Tiango, who said, "Naku, baka hindi puwede! Kasi yun ang pang-aapi sa akin ng ABS (ABS-CBN, where she had worked in the past). Pero puwede ba yun? Baka idemanda tayo! (I don’t think it can be done! Because it would have to be when ABS-CBN bullied me. Could that be done? They may sue us!)."

 

The report noted that in 1995, Tiangco and Jay Sonza, her Mel & Jay co-host, were suspended without pay by their then-employer ABS-CBN. This was because Tiangco and Sonza had appeared in an ad.

 

In any case, Tiangco went on to elaborate how she felt during that time: "Kasi sobra ang panlalait sa akin. Sobra ang pagtapak sa akin. Dini-describe ko nga nun na, feeling ko, para akong ipis nun. Alam n'yo naman kung paano ba patayin ang ipis? Di ba, tinatapakan, tapos idiin pa para mapisa nang husto? Ganun ang feeling ko nun (I really got slammed. They walked all over me. If I were to describe how I felt then, I’d say I felt like a cockroach. You know h0w cockroaches are killed right? You stomp on them and then you keep doing it until they’re crushed. That was how I felt)."

 

No reaction from any ABS-CBN official was featured in the report.
