Fatherhood and Dennis Trillo
AFTER that explosive revelation that he is the father of beauty queen Carlene Aguilar's son, Calix Andrea, Dennis Trillo seems so sure of himself that such an issue will not affect his career. In fact, history backs him up. Vhong Navarro did it. Piolo Pascual did it. Gary Valenciano did it (when he was still a struggling singer). Because of this, it is quite safe to say that he made a right decision because not doing so would definitely haunt him personally and in effect his career. Dennis tells GMA-7's "Showbiz Central," the show in which he made the revelation: "Kung ano man yung responsibilidad na nandiyan, wala akong balak talikuran. Siyempre, haharapin ko lahat yon. Sa dami ng blessings na dumadating sa akin, gusto kong isipin na itong dumating na ito isang malaking blessing ito.” But being a father henceforth is terribly a different thing. He should become the responsible father he vows to become and this entails a lot of sacrifices too even if he remains a "single dad." Obviously, he does not plan to marry Carlene, at least in the very near future. Apart from the monetary responsibility, his revelation should even commit him to a greater role--that is of being a father, not a mere provider. * * * Snooky Serna's shocking revelation that she was raped at age 14 really had my eyes glued to the television set last Sunday. Though she gave details like: 1) It happened in her home; 2) The perpetrator was someone close to her (since she allowed her home); 3) She revealed it first to her aunt and then her mother, Mila Ocampo; 4) She was forced to do the acts by the perpetrator. But she stopped short of even hinting who the perpetrator was. She said the person had been living in peace already and would not want to create further embarrasment to the person and purportedly his family. But why reveal it in the first place, two decades since? Well she has her reasons. But all victims of such cruelty should be given ample support to recover from the ordeal. And Snooky said she has.
