Ruffa Gutierrez walks out in the middle of The Buzz in the P.O.V. portion which touched on Ruffa Gutierrez leaving The Buzz and ABS-CBN for TV5. Kris Aquino said to Ruffa Gutierrez, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…“Aminin mo, masaya ka rito,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â (admit it, you’re happy with ABS-CBN). The camera then caught the sudden facial change of expression of Ruffa Gutierrez who then stood up frowning, turning her back on the camera and walked out of the set in tears. Ruffa Gutierrez’ mother, Annabelle Rama then went on air at The Buzz’ rival show, GMA’s Showbiz Central, to castigate Kris Aquino. Annabelle Rama lambasted Kris and said she had Ruffa pulled from The Buzz because of the constant rebuff and criticism from her daughter’s co-host. Annabelle then went on to say that Kris Aquino’s brother, Sen. Noynoy Aquino should not be voted for President because if Kris Aquino is conceited now, what more if Noynoy is elected to be President. Annabelle Rama also said that Kris Aquino has always envied Ruffa Gutierrez.
For her part, Kris Aquino explained her side of the story saying, “I invite everybody to review The Buzz- my comment was said w/ affection & a sense of fun. Now if they will choose to lambast my brother, who wasn’t even on the Buzz, makes me wonder what the true agenda is- para siraan si Noy? I’d like to believe Filipino voters r intelligent & will continue supporting Noy because he is the best man for the job.”
Ruffa Gutierrez meanwhile said, “Sana man lang I was given the chance to say goodbye properly to my colleagues on the Buzz who I’ve grown to love like family over the Last 3yrs. Kung may ayaw sa akin sa the Buzz,may mga may gusto din po sa akin. Sana nabigyan po ako ng chance para magpaalam sa mga Nagmamahal din po sa akin. Kahit dalawang piraso pa sila, karapatan ko rin namang magpaalam ng maayos. I’m just trying to do my job. This is not the first time. I’m also very diplomatic n can laugh about anything. Off-cam,the situation was far from pleasant. Yes,registered Voters like me will certainly vote wisely. No need to make sira…I AM TEAM NOYNOY! But between now n the May elections many things can Can still happen. Its what name I will write that will clearly matter in the end. I would like to enjoy my time w/loved ones now. Salamat po. Sa lahat ng tumawag, nag txt. Thank u. I leave everything up to God. Peace and love to all!!!”
Showbiz Central hosts Mo Twister and Raymond Gutierrez (Ruffa’s brother) also commented publicly on the alleged “pambabara” incident. DJ Mo said, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…“just heard Ruffa Gutierrez walked out of the Buzz in tears cuz Kris Aquinos attitude prob. she was being rude bout Ruffa going go tv5. Sucks.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â Raymond Gutierrez said, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…“Some people want all the spotlight & can be really tactless. IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m happy that my cohosts here in Central show equal respect for each other. When youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re trying to get the whole nation to be on your side, donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t be a bully.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
