The word war between Nadia Montenegro and Cristy Fermin intensified last Sunday, October 5, when Cristy Fermin declared on The Buzz:
"Nadia, sino sa atin ngayon ang walang budhi? Ako na nagmahal at nagkaroon ng ekstensyon at oportunidad na magmahal ng dalawang bata na hindi ko dugo, o ikaw na hinugot sa sinapupunan mo ang isang sanggol pero hindi mo binigyan ng pangalan? Manalamin tayo nang sabay ngayon."
Then a few minutes later, Nadia retorted by phone patch in Showbiz Central:
"Napakasinungaling talaga ng Cristy Fermin na ‘yan!"
It's not a hubbub that the public should be all amused about. Their loved ones, particularly their moms and children, have been dragged into the issue. Not-so-pleasant words were said on national television, with millions of people watching.
But PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) feels the need to dissect it because the people deserve to know where these antagonists are coming from.
Why is Nadia Montenegro fuming mad?
Why is Cristy Fermin berating her former "anak-anakan?"
In Nadia's exclusive interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last October 4, she said it was all ignited by the "rift with Gretchen Barretto."
According to Nadia, it was La Greta who initially became the subject of Cristy Fermin's columns and radio show. The topic: her rumored trysts with Dody Puno.
Then, "two days after" the Rembrandt confrontation (click to read article) , Nadia recalled, "Biglang yun nga, ako na iyong tinitira niya [Cristy]. Si ano daw ako, 'bawang', nakikisawsaw sa ganito sa ganyan. And then, nalaman ko na nga she was on Gretchen's side."
The write-ups about her went on until March, and the former Regal baby made a mental note of the items that Cristy mentioned in her radio show and put out in her tabloid columns.
There was one which involved Wendell Ramos. According to Nadia, the claim was that she and the Kapuso actor reportedly had an affair.
During her interview with PEP, Nadia shared bits and parts of how she broke the news to Wendell via a phone call, "Pare, pasensiya na, ha. Mag-syota daw tayo. [Wendell replied] ‘Hindi, pare, nakakahiya ke mayor.' [Nadia said] ‘Hindi pare, okay lang. Nakakahiya ke mare, pakisabi na lang...'"
Another guy who got dragged into the issue was Baron Geisler, who allegedly sired Nadia's youngest kid.
