A PBA storm is brewing online over an alleged admission by a popular model in a podcast of a program hosted by controversial disc jockey Mo Twister that she had an affair with a team executive in the pro league.
The confession was allegedly made by sexy model Abby Poblador during an episode on the podcast channel GTWM (Good Times with Mo] that was aired via live streaming on Thursday night and immediately spread like wild fire on cyberspace.
Although Poblador didn't mention the team executive by name, the former mixed martials arts round girl turned television host dropped hints like 'former coach turned executive' and 'long hair' in the podcast which was later taken down from the GTWM channel.
In succeeding tweets, Mo Twister, Mohan Gumatay in real life, expressed disappointment that the controversial episode will no longer be seen on TV5's official website tv5.com.ph.
TV5 is also the official coveror of the PBA games.
Poblador rose to fame following appearances in fights of a top MMA outfit and later appeared as a guest host in AKTV Center, a halftime show in the PBA games coverage that was later reformatted.
She was later voted among FHM Philippines' 100 sexiest women.
"Right when I am about to sleep I get word we're having problems with last nights @GTWMPodcast episode. Now I am too pissed to sleep," said Gumatay on his @DJMoTwister Twitter account shortly after informing the fans of a very interesting interview.
"There is an unfortunate hold on Wednesday's episode (with Poblador) but Thursday's episode should be available shortly," he added.
The flamboyant program host even explained that the 'censure' was more of a legal problem.
"I'll be honest, it's not a network thing but a legal thing. In past seasons, we've done the same thing but this one is higher profile so I understand the frustration. I'm upset too but the internet does not have laws," said Gumatay.
Mo Twister later took down some of his own tweets but nonetheless expressed hope in a tweet that a fan was able to record the live stream, so it will be be made public in a different platform.
The popular deejay and TV host later tweeted that the hashtag #AlPob has so far hit more than 5-million impressions on the social networking site.
Calls made to TV5 executives over the decision to take down the podcast have not been answered at posting time.
