It was comedian-host Ogie Diaz’s turn to be put in a hot seat in the latest vlog of actress-YouTuber Erich Gonzales.
In the video uploaded over the weekend, the two stars played the “Spill or Shot” game, where Erich posed intriguing questions to Ogie, who must either tell the truth or take a shot of alcohol.
At one point, Ogie was dared to name the celebrity he had upset the most in his decades-long career as a veteran showbiz writer.
The 50-year-old showbiz personality then admitted to having offended many stars. In particular, he recalled being snubbed by veteran actress Dina Bonnevie after he and a fellow reporter cornered her for an ambush interview.
“Nakita namin si Miss D. Pero hindi pa ako Ogie Diaz. Isa pa lang akong struggling reporter,” he began.
“Gumanon si Miss D [raises eyebrow]. ‘Hi, Miss D.’ ‘Yes?’ ‘Miss D, baka naman puwede kayong ma-interview.’ ‘Ha? You come here, and you saw me tapos ii-interview-hin niyo na ako? You did not even set an appointment para magkaroon kayo ng schedule at ma-interview ako?’ Ang daming sinabi. ‘Sorry po. Sorry, Miss D. Miss D, sorry po. Sorry po, hindi na po mauulit,” continued Ogie.
“‘Hindi, mali ‘yang ginagawa ninyo,” he went on, still quoting Dina. “‘Dapat tumatawag kayo sa manager at nagpapa-set kayo ng appointment. Tanong niyo muna kung gusto nung artista magpa-interview sa inyo. Hindi ‘yang ganyan na nakita niyo lang ako, i-approach niyo ako tapos gusto niyo akong interviewhin na?’ ‘Sorry, Miss D. Sorry.’”
However, Ogie and his companion were surprised after Dina eventually asked them to “shoot the first question.”
‘“Hindi, pangit ‘yang ginagawa niyo talaga’” narrated Ogie. “‘O sige na, ano na ‘yung mga tanong niyo.’ ‘Po?’ ‘Shoot the first question!”
According to Ogie, he and Dina later on became close friends after working together in the 2009 primetime series May Bukas Pa.
“Tapos sinabi ko ‘yun kay Miss D nung May Bukas Pa. Doon kami naging close. ‘Miss D, alam mo ba tinarayan mo kami noon?’ ‘Di niya matandaan. ‘Paano kita tinarayan?’ ‘Hindi ano ka naman talaga, mataray ka na may point lagi,’” recalled Ogie.
To which, Erich, who also happened to be a close friend of Dina, said: “She’s not mataray!”
“Sa aming mga reporter,” clarified Ogie, before continuing, “Tawa ng tawa si Miss D. ‘Oh my God, sinabi ko ba ‘yun sa iyo?’ Pero natawa siya noong sinabi kong, ‘Shoot the first question!’
“Kaya ‘pag may nag-aano kay Miss D, ako unang tiga-pagtanggol niyan. Mabait ‘yan. Front lang niya ‘yang ganyan na mukha siyang mataray. Impression mo ‘yun sa kanya. Pero when you get to know her better, ay, sobrang ano si Miss D, sobrang bait.”
“Yes, the best. Super,” agreed Erich.
