On the news last night: [part of a report about Michelle Madrigal’s new Maxim shoot] “…Umaasa naman si Michelle (Madrigal) na makatanggap ng maraming projects para makapagbayad ng renta at makabili ng one-thousand five-hundred na halaga ng pre-paid cellphone cards linggo-linggo.”
Wow meyyyn. Some goal. And I don’t know which one’s worse, her or Mario Dumaual, the reporter.
It’s like that headline a while back, in the same program: “German model, nadulas sa swimming pool habang nagmo-model ng alahas.”
I was like, huh? Heck I care if that happened to some model, German or otherwise. ‘Di ako apektado. It’s funny yeah. But lest we forget, this is not “Stupid Models Caught on Tape”. You’re doing a news program for goodness’ sake. You gotta have something more relevant in your headline (and stories for that matter) than that. Turns out later that the German model in the story was actually Heidi Klum. (hilarious, by the way!) Now, why couldn’t they just put her name in the headline! I know many of those watching probably wouldn’t know who Heidi Klum is. But at least, there’s a semblance of relevance. Tipong kung isa ‘ko sa mga taong ‘yun na di siya kilala, sasabihin ko na lang sa sarili ko, “ambobo ko, di ko kilala ‘yung model na ‘yun…” Ganon.
