Vhong Navarro Speaks Up About Attack in BGC Condo

Vhong Navarro, comedian-TV host in ABS-CBN’s Showtime, denied rape allegations and claimed that he was attacked upon arrival in his friend’s condo.

In an exclusive interview in the talk show “The Buzz,” Vhong claimed that the event was staged to blackmail him into giving money. “They want me to give them Php 1-million. From 200,000 it went up to 500,000 until it reached 1-million and eventually 2-million.”

He said that they forced him to sign a police blotter stating that he raped Deniece Milet Cornejo, the alleged rape victim and his friend who owns the Bonifacio Global City condo unit where he was attacked. ”It was indicated in the document that they won’t pursue the case, that they won’t file complaints because we have a deal. The police blotter was designed to protect them in case I tell the authorities the truth.”

Vhong also mentioned the name of the alleged mastermind, Cedric Lee, who apparently, led the group who attacked him. “…I recognized him (when he went into the room). At first, he (Cedric) introduced himself and then he tied up my hands and feet. He shoved me to the floor and started hitting me.”

Critics said Padilla was a better host compared to Manzano, Cruz and Crawford.

Padilla said he should not be compared to the three young guest hosts, noting that they have different styles of hosting.

“Ako ay matanda, ang mga ‘Kanto Boys‘ ay mga bata. Talagang magkaiba po ‘yon. Kaya kung ikukumpara nila ang ‘Kanto Boys’ sa akin ay huwag po sana dahil magkaiba po talaga kami ng style,” Padilla said.

Padilla, who was also criticized while hosting “Wowowee,” appealed to all televiewers to accept “Kanto Boys” the way they accepted him when he was the guest host of the hit afternoon program.

The action star hosted “Wowowee” for 2 weeks only. In his previous interview, Padilla said he was open to hosting “Wowowee” permanently.

Padilla, who is now preparing for his 2 films, admitted that he already missed the show, particularly its female hosts.

“Ayoko lang po kasi na masabi ng tao na ako po ay nang-agaw. Gusto ko lang po talaga ay isang malinaw na usapan,” Padilla said.

Whatever happen to their relationship what matters is that they remain friends. For me, every relationship leaves a lesson. A lesson that you will apply once your heart was ready to love again, a lesson that make a new relationship grow more than what you had in the past. We don’t know when love will strike us, but i am sure it will came in wright time. And no matter how you hide or decline that love will find a way for you.
