BB GANDANGHARI continued airing her vlog about Piolo Pascual last weekend. Again, it’s infernally long and it all boils down once more to her previous claim that it’s Piolo who seduced Rustom Padilla, who even insists he was never in the closet!

BB says: “This kind of interaction for Rustom was not even a gay relationship, that’s why I was very very clear from the onset. For him, this was really just a love story. It was not a gay relationship but it was actually love, he was seeing love from the point of view of a man towards a man.”

Sounds like someone who is clearly still in denial. BB now revealed in her latest episode that it’s even Piolo who took Rustom to a motel. But she claimed nothing really malicious happened between them. They just slept.

Yeah, right! Who does he expect to believe him? People were not just born yesterday. When asked why he is doing this tell all story, he said:  “Because now, I’m saying my story. Why? Why are you asking? There’s no why.”

But why is he outing other people? 

“If you think what I’m doing is I’m outing some people, I wanna repeat what I’ve said, this experience will not define anyone, Jonathan or David (which is how he refers to himself and Piolo), because it's what you do in your everyday life that will define you, and not just one experience. Okay? Buksan natin ang mga mata natin doon.”

But sadly, the fact remains that it looks like people are no longer interested in what BB has to say. That episode about Piolo never went into trending and only got 40,000 views on youtube.

This is miniscule compared to the millions of hits that youtube queens Ivana Alawi and Alex Gonzaga get from their innocuous posts.

Maybe because his rants are so long and he should have edited it to a more manageable and watchable length, unless he wants to be the Lav Diaz among vloggers. As some observes say, “hindi kinagat si BB.”

As a matter of fact, the general public reaction on her vlog is negative. Some quarters accuse her of just using Piolo to be talked about, to get more hits for her vlog and increase its subscription, endorsements and for him to have more revenue, but sadly, this didn’t happen at all.

A nasty basher even wrote something quite filthy for BB: “Pakant_t ka na lang sa pw_t on screen at baka mas marami pang manood sa vlog mo.” Obvious na “parang binababoy siya.” This is a clear indication that netizens are not taking him seriously, even those who are fond of gossip about celebrities.

As what Director Joey Reyes commented on this so succinctly: "This is really sad. And unfair. Choices made by people in their private lives- even for public properties like celebrities- are theirs to keep.

"Violating one's privacy - especially confidentiality given in the name of the trust in friendship or whatever - does not speak well of those whose secret may have been unwittingly exposed but of the party who crossed the line and said too much which is beyond his or her territory or narrative."
