Panalo ang ginawang Fast Talk ni King of Talk Boy Abunda sa veteran showbiz writer and talent manager na si Lolit Solis sa birthday celebration nito last Sunday.


Maraming bagay ang kanilang napag-usapan, kabilang na ang love life ni ‘Nay Lolit.


“Love at this age?” gulat na sabi ni ‘Nay Lolit.


Tanong ni Kuya Boy, “May panahon ba na talagang ika’y nawala sa sarili dahil sa pag-ibig?


Naghabol ka ba sa isang lalaki?”


May humirit pa ng tanong kung nagbayad ba siya ng isang lalaki.


Sabi naman ni ‘Nay Lolit, “Parang hindi, eh. Parang hindi ako gagasta sa lalaki, parang ‘yan ang wa’ ko feel. Gusto ko, ako babayaran.”


Napag-usapan din ang kontrobersiyal na Manila Film Festival Scam noong 1994, na bukas na aklat naman sa publiko kung ano ang ginawa ni ‘Nay Lolit. 


“The biggest mistake na ginawa ko, pero hindi ko pinagsisihan. Siguro, if I will live my life again, gagawin ko uli ‘yung scam,” sey ni ‘Nay Lolit.


Dito raw kasi niya nakita ang pagmamahal sa kanya ng mga taga-showbiz, kabilang na ang kanyang mga alaga na hindi raw siya talaga iniwan.


“Du’n nga lalong na-feel ko kaya nga yata ako lalong naging salbahe – kasi nakita ko lahat, lahat ng alaga ko, ipinagtanggol ako. Lahat nu'ng pinakitaan ko ng mabuti, sa mga showbiz writers, reporters, ipinagtanggol ako. Kaya I did not feel alone that time, na galit sa 'kin ‘yung buong Manila dahil sa kagagahan ko, ‘yung buong Pilipinas, kasi na-feel mo ‘yung love sa showbiz,” pahayag ni ‘Nay Lolit.


Ang itinuturing niya namang pinakamalaking blessing sa kanyang buhay ay nang mapasok siya sa showbiz dahil dito siya nakapagpundar ng sariling sasakyan at bahay.


Nang matanong kung sino ang gusto niyang kumain sa kanya kung sakaling ulam siya, naloka si ‘Nay Lolit.


“Kainin ako?” tanong niya ulit.


“Oo, Manay, adobo ka,” sagot naman ni Kuya Boy.

Nag-isip nang matagal si ‘Nay Lolit at binanggit ang favorite niyang Korean actor na si Jo In Sung.


Natanong din kung sino ang artistang gusto niyang tikman noon. Sagot ng kontrobersiyal na talent manager ay wala.


Sa tanong kung saan ang pinakamagandang lugar na naihian niya, tawa nang tawa si ‘Nay Lolit.


Aniya, “Ang pinakanahiya ako, nasa Lourdes (France) pa kami, ha, tapos ihing-ihi ako sa simbahan. Eh, hindi namin makita kung nasaan ang restroom, talagang nu’ng nakita ko ‘yung pader, du’n ako umihi. Paglingon ko, nagmimisa ‘yung pari. Hiyang-hiya ako,” kuwento ni ‘Nay Lolit.


Samantala, labis ang pasasalamat ng dating host ng Startalk sa lahat ng dumalo sa kanyang kaarawan lalo na nga ang kanyang mga alaga na sina Benjie Paras, Paolo Contis, Pauleen Luna, Tonton Gutierrez and wife Glydel Mercado, Congresswoman Lani Mercado, Christopher de Leon and wife Sandy Andolong, Tirso Cruz III and wife Lyn Ynchausti, Nanette Medved, Amy Austria among others. 


Naroroon din sina Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, Rei Anicoche-Tan of Beautederm at marami pang iba. 


Super-thankful din siya sa mag-asawang Sen. Bong Revilla and Congw. Lani na siyang sumagot ng kanyang lunch birthday party.

Kahit huli na ay nagsalita pa rin ang ex ni Kim Chiu na si Xian Lim sa isang interbyu hinggil sa steak issue bago sila naghiwalay ng It's Showtime co-host . 


Ang lumalabas kasi ay nagpaluto pa raw ng steak si Xian kay Kim bago ito nakipaghiwalay.


Sagot nito, “There’s no truth to it. It’s absurd. I don’t see where it’s coming from. Is it because people are using us for entertainment? I cannot orchestrate that, I wasn’t the one who initiated the breakup. All these fake news, all these dagdag-bawas, are just too much already.”


Tanong ng interviewer mula sa Inquirer, “There’s also the issue about you calling Kim to ask her permission to announce that you already have a girlfriend. What was that about?"


Sagot ni Xian, “When this story first came to me, I didn’t understand it, to be honest. There’s also no truth to it. But I’ll say this—the truth is that I really did call Kim. When we parted ways, there were various stories coming out. Some parties are purposely becoming noisy. 

"This was also the time when my family started getting messages that were below the belt. Like, 'Sana mamatay na ang lola mo.' They even brought up her cancer. This was from a supporter whom we know and eventually became like family. It had already gotten way out of hand during the two weeks since we broke up, so I had to give her a call.

“This was around November. I was actually begging Kim, saying we should release a statement that we’ve already gone our separate ways, that we separated on good terms at walang sigawan. Of course, there were tears, pero walang masamang tinapay. I said, ‘Can we just release it? A lot of people are getting dragged into this, including my mom and grandmother.'


"I begged her that both of us could release a statement, but she said not yet because they’re doing the press launch of her series. I said, 'But this isn’t work-related. It’s personal.' That’s the truth to it.


"I don’t want any conflict between us. My intention now is to tell the truth—that I called to beg her, but she said, “in time.” I guess by that, she meant late December, before Christmas. I don’t know why they decided for us to do it then. I was just glad that we both got to release statements. I guess some people, whoever they are, want us to fight.


"We haven’t spoken after I begged for the statement, but we are on good terms. From the time we separated, we were OK.”


Samantala, isang netizen ang hindi kumbinsido sa sagot ni Xian kung nagpaluto ba siya ng steak.


Ani ng netizen, “I cannot orchestrate that… hanep! ‘Di pa rin direktang sinagot kung nagpaluto ba s’ya ng steak o hindi.”


May dumepensa naman sa aktor, “Hindi mo ba naintindihan? He said there’s no truth to it.

Gosh. I don’t like Xian, but I guess they’ve mutually decided to break up and Kim was protecting her career at Xian’s expense. Tapos, ‘yung halos everyday parinig nila sa Showtime. Ewan ko, ha, may off talaga kay Kim.”


Ano naman kaya ang magiging reaksiyon ni Chinita Princess sa interbyung ito ng kanyang ex?
