Sinon downplays bar altercation

Even though he lost to “All of Me” star Derek Ramsay in the Metro Manila Film Festival Best Actor category, Joross Gamboa did not feel bad. 

“Bakit naman? Bakit ako masasaktan? Walang issue sa akin. Kapatid ko ‘yan si brother Derek. Sa akin nga, basta na-appreciate ng tao ang ginawa namin, nagustuhan ng director ang performance namin, ‘yun ang importante,” Gamboa said. 

He also had nothing but support for his co-star Edgar Allan Guzman who won the best supporting actor trophy. “Ang panalo niya panalo ko rin kasi mag-re-reflect pa rin sa pelikula na ginawa namin. At wala pa sa personality namin ni EA (Edgar Allan) ‘yun. Ako kasi alam ko na na si EA mananalo at saka pinakita ko sa mga tao. Dahil magkatabi kami nun, ako ‘yung nag-announce sa kanya. Proud ako. Feeling ko kahit sa Best Actress, mananalo si EA,” he explained.

The “Deadma Walking” actor dispelled any thoughts he was bothered by the billing in the movie and said he is open to doing all kinds of roles, even when it is not a major one. “Siyempre support, bida, kahit cameo lang ako. Walang problema sa akin sa billing. Kumbaga dati nga hindi kami nagreklamo, sa ‘Dilim’ si Natalie Hart nauna sa amin (sa billing). Sa akin wala namang problema. Basta hindi ako nagagalit. Hindi naman ako billing conscious. Kami pa? Basta masaya kami dito sa ‘Deadma Walking’ at dito masaya lahat, good vibes,” he said.

Meanwhile, EA Guzman said he attended the awards night without any expectations of bringing home any awards. “Deadma Walking” ended up winning Best Float and he won Best Supporting Actor. Despite the unexpected accolade, netizens were vocal in saying he should have won Best Actor instead.

“Ang hirap kasi magsalita. Siyempre tayo naman, bakit hindi? Ako gusto ko talaga, hindi ko ipagkakaila pero hindi ako nagsasalita na sana nasa Best Actor ako. Kumbaga kuntento na ako. Kuntento ako sa ibinigay sa akin. Hayaan ko na lang sila mag-decide, hayaan ko sila maglagay sa akin sa Best Actor, so para sa akin gusto ko siyempre. Sino ba namang hindi nangangarap maging Best Actor ng Metro Manila Film Festival? Isang malaking tulong ‘yun para sa akin pero kung ‘yan ang ibinigay nila sa akin, masaya pa rin ako. Thankful pa rin ako,” he insisted.

Sinon Loresca, the country’s self-proclaimed “King of Catwalk,” issued an apology for a late Friday night brawl in which he wounded two of his friends who was partying with him. 

A Facebook post by a certain Drew Farhad Fernandez revealed he and his partner suffered scratch wounds, which was said to have been caused by the high-heel strutting social media star. 

Fernandez alleged that they saw Loresca hit his personal assistant on the head “for no reason” while they were out drinking at a bar in Ortigas. 

Seeing the blatant abuse, Fernandez and his partner stepped in and tried to stop Loresca. But at that point, he alleged that Loresca, who was already being escorted out by guards, had turned violent and began attacking his partner. 

He then allegedly heard Loresca reason that his personal assistant is “just [his] maid,” and he is a celebrity who can “do whatever [he] wants and [they] cannot do anything about it.”

Loresca, known for his videos of him strutting in high heels, downplayed the whole incident as a “misunderstanding” in a video he released online Saturday afternoon. 

“Lambing po iyon,” he explained of his supposedly violent actions towards his assistant. “Hindi po sila tatagal sa akin kung masama po akong tao. Sino po ba ako para manakit ng kapwa-tao? Wala akong karapatan manakit ng tao.”

Sinon also defended himself by saying he only retaliated after he was jumped unexpectedly by the two complainants. 

“Humihingi po ako ng sincere apology,” he told Fernandez. “Sorry talaga kasi hindi ko rin napigilan iyong sarili ko.”

He also denied being drunk. 

In his post, Fernandez said that he has been a fan of Loresca, whom he had looked up to for his “confidence and his ability to show to people that there is nothing to be ashamed about being gay, and instead it should be celebrated.” 

“As proud members of the gay community, as a couple, and most importantly as gay parents, we think that it is very important for us to do our part in keeping our community safe and educating others where possible,” he wrote. 

“Regardless whether you are a man, woman or transgender, rich or poor, popular or not – no one has the right to abuse you, ever!”
