CONTROVERSIAL radio host Mo Twister has confirmed that Ginebra board governor Alfrancis Chua was identified by model Abby Poblador as the PBA team executive she claimed to have had an affair with.
Mo Twister, Mohan Gumatay in real life, said Poblador mentioned the former coach turned team executive's name 'maybe 15 times' during a two-hour interview in his GTWM (Good Times With Mo) radio program which was aired via live streaming on Wednesday night.
“She freaking full out said, Alfrancis Chua. In my opinion, she mentioned Alfrancis Chua maybe fifteen times,” said Gumatay in an interview aired over Spin.ph writer Snow Badua's 'Reliable Source' radio sports program on DZSR.
“She said that: ‘I am a mistress of Alfrancis Chua,' she said that," Gumatay added.
The US-based Gumatay also recalled that it was Poblador who opened up about the alleged affair during the ‘Forbidden Question’ portion of the show, which was not supposed to be part of the interview with the model who has appeared as round girl for a mixed martial arts outfit and briefly as a segment host in the PBA halftime show.
“I don’t know her (Poblador), so we don’t usually ask people I don’t know with the forbidden question. But on the show she said, ‘I thought I’m here for Forbidden Questions?’ So I said: ‘I can ask you a couple of forbidden questions.’ I said, ‘Have you had sex with someone famous?’” shared Gumatay.
“She said: ‘Well, I can’t say.' So I told her part of the Forbidden Questions is you have to say it, if not medyo baduy ka. So she said: ‘Alfrancis Chua,’ sabi ko, 'Sino siya?' ‘Coach siya ng Ginebra.” But I wasn’t excited because I didn’t know who he was.
“If I knew that Alfrancis was that popular, I would have really pushed the issue.”
Gumatay even expressed surprise that the episode became viral and even made it to the trending topics on Twitter last Friday.
“I didn’t care about him, I cared about the experience. To be honest, I don’t know Abby Poblador, I certainly don’t know who Alfrancis is, so I wasn’t that excited,’ he added.
Meanwhile, Gumatay expressed dismay that the episode’s podcast was not uploaded for streaming at tv.com.ph, the host website of his Good Times With Mo program for more than a year.
“This is the first time that somebody banned my episode. I ban my own episodes before, maybe on occasion, like, say a celebrity asked me nicely and said, ‘You know what, I regret what I said, can you kindly not air it,' so I think about it and go, ‘OK you’re my friend, I’m not gonna air it na lang,'” said Gumatay.
“This is the first time that someone else has banned my show, because usually it’s my call, it has always been my call whether it be banned or not. This is the first time that someone outside of me has said, ‘Sorry, we’re not gonna air your show.' That’s what makes it very new to everybody, and I think that’s what people are complaining about… It’s not what I want, I want the show to air,” he said.
