Gretchen Fullido revealed the “malicious” text messages she received from Cheryl Favila
ABS-CBN entertainment reporter Gretchen Fullido released the “malicious” text messages she received from news executive Cheryl Favila.
Fullido filed sexual harassment case against Favila and segment producer Maricar Asprec. This is along with a libel case against veteran broadcaster Ces Drilon for allegedly victim-shaming her.
The camp of the TV executives claimed that the complaint from Fullido is baseless and a classic example of discrimination of the members of LGBTQ community.
The entertainment reporter said that Favila sent her text messages with “sexual innuendos”.
Based on the report in The Manila Times, Fullido’s counsel Marvin Aceron shared the said messages that his client received from Asprec and Favila from 2015 to 2017.
It was stated that Asprec instructed Fullido to show affection to Favila every time the latter gets angry to her over something.
Gretchen Fullido also claimed that Asprec asked her to be Favila’s “Thursday Girl”. According to the complaint, Favila and Asprec are in an “open relationship”.
However, Favila reserves her Thursdays for third party. The entertainment reporter did not agree on this “request or offer”.
Here are some of the text messages from Favila that Fullido released:
“I pitched for you to be the social media anchor for Election Marathon. But mas gusto ko pa rin ng strip-teaser. Gretch yata.”
“Think of writing a story this way: having sex is different from ‘making love.’ Making love entails emotions, not just doing the act. Always try to ‘make love’ to your stories. I am very partial to it.”
“Thank you, Gretchen! Pero gusto ko ng live rendition ng Happy Birthday song mo, na naka super sexy outfit ka. Hahaha! Birthday ko naman, di ba?”
“Good morning! Tara Grets was my shower moment this morning…”
“What time are you coming to work? [Fullido: On the way to [ABS-CBN] now. What’s up?] Wala naman. Miss lang kita. Masama ba? Sungit. “Kailangan mo rin ng konting lambing sa katawan.”
“Good luck on your Deal or No Deal. May the force be with you! Bawal ang jowa ha … Lagot ka sa akin.”
“Promises fulfilled — I have opened the doors to your dreams by creating your own segment on TV Patrol, despite doubts and criticisms from various camps; I got you a talent fee increase, which is double of what you are currently getting (not really bad). I have set-up the stage for you. Now, it’s time for me to continue the journey to my destiny. Maktub. Good luck to yours. It’s nice to have crossed your path this lifetime, Gretchen.”
“Sana naman parati kang ganyan. Pagod na ako makipag-away. It’s emotionally draining, and you can’t take my intensity. So gets mo na ang style ‘di ba? Be a good girl always.”
Based on the report, Gretchen Fullido’s work and stories would suffer whenever she rejected the supposed advances from Favila.
