TV5 has just released a statement regarding the Paparazzi Showbiz Exposed episode that made Ruffa Gutierrez decide to leave the show.
"TV5 management is seriously concerned about the turn of events today at Paparazzi and is now looking into the incident. We promise everyone that we shall take appropriate action."
After the June 23 episode, Ruffa took to Twitter and posted her sentiments, also saying that she no longer wanted to be in the show.
“From this day on, I will no longer be part of Paparazzi. I will never tolerate DISRESPECT in any form done to me, to my children or to my beloved viewers.”
The Bulong Ng Palad segment of Paparazzi was allegedly what gained Ruffa’s ire. The actress and TV host was the subject on the June 23 edition of the said segment because it was her birthday celebration episode. The segment goes in a way that the hosts will alternately whisper their questions to the subject, and in turn, the subject will say the answer out loud, choosing from a set of multiple choice answers.
Among the choices Ruffa had to choose from were Aga Muhlach, Zoren Legaspi and Robin Padilla, three men she was romantically involved with in the past.
The segment was made in a naughty way and it was allegedly what made Ruffa uncomfortable, especially that Zoren was there as her co-host, as well as Mariel Rodriguez, Robin’s wife, who was a guest co-host at that time.
“Hindi nyo man lang naisip na nanonood ang mga anak ko! Yung head ng PROGRESS Gold Milk of Wyeth was at the studio, my friends were watching,” Ruffa tweeted.

Annabelle Rama, Ruffa’s mother, also posted a series of angry messages on her Twitter account, bashing the homosexual writers of the show for being so lewd in the middle of the day.
Some of Annabelle’s tweets read:
“Naubusan na ba kayo ng ideas? Dapat yang mga mali—-g na baklang writers ng paparazzi ilagay sa 2am na slot, di sa tanghali!”
“May mga batang nanunood sa inyo, katulad ng mga apo ko! Inaabangan nila ang bday celebration ng mommy nila!”
