Katrina and Hayden were in bed sharing their tryst with no matrimonial bond but despite this, Katrina’s employer GMA-7, was behind its “shining star” and so was the entire movie industry which tried to ram through the throat of the public a misleading one liner that: “Katrina was the victim”.
She was not a victim, though both of them were abusers and the unwitting public, their victims. Katrina to some, is a heroine of the telenovela, Gagambino who fought evil to save mankind. She had victimized the public into believing that her persona is virtuously wholesome, sensually of course it is. Dr. Kho is a physician with some kinky habit of taping his every sexual encounter with his partners. His previous talent manager, Ms. Solis admits this in a television interview. He had victimized the public into looking at him as a physician and not as a pervert.
Katrina models see through lingerie and skimpy bikinis and when you go on ramp to sell these products, the model becomes the most desirable product, the “band-aid” size bikini she wears is nowhere within the index of any consumer’s preference. If she advertises that much she could also sell. Was the tryst with Hayden an acceptance of the product she was selling and the secret tape, Hayden’s business concept of cashing on in an investment?
Was she wronged because her consent was absent on the taping though the sexual liaison was consensual?
Indeed , she was robbed of her privacy. But would she be appeased with the other “disgorging” the profit of the sex videos in her favor or does she desire more? If all these brouhaha are geared towards making the other scoundrel pay-up for the “tarnished image” and “privacy violation” of the “victim”, then the settlement along these gridlines becomes private affair and the public had been had once again.
They were both in pari delicto and no one should be allowed to profit from each other.
Public appeasement will only come if Mr. Kho is stripped off of his license as a physician being a purveyor of porn and Ms. Halili is sanctioned for her “indecorous” behavior by the very people behind her. But her employer, as aptly observed by DJB, has a daily variety show of scantily clad young girls gyrating in front of television cameras beamed throughout the country and certain parts of the world. This variety show could be the very backbone of its rating and therefore its huge source of income. The paradox is, the more Katrinas they have, the more the money and the fun.
Let us wait and see how this scenario pans out in the next few days. But the prediction of DJB entitled Live by Pudenda, Die by Pudenda below only confirms that the public will again be the helpless victims.
“What Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili are suffering now is merely the consequence of that tragically false presumption. We owe them pity, but that is all. I don’t see why either of them should be held up as examples of causes worth fighting for. I’m cold to them both and am willing to predict that Katrina Halili and Hayden Kho, and those behind, in front, under and over them both will all soon realize they ought to just patch this all up quietly and continue in the business of making money by selling made up flesh doctored and dolled up for ramp, runway and studio. The alternative of course is an escalating war of dueling videos, in which videos of other famous people doing it could hit the World Wide Web”.
