Sa sex video scandal ni Hayden Kho kasama ang iba't ibang babae, hindi maikakailang apektado rin nang husto ang pamilya ng mga nasangkot sa kontrobersiyang ito.

Kahapon, May 24, ay nakausap ng Showbiz Central ang panganay na anak ni Dra. Vicki Belo na si Direk Quark Henares. Balita kasing nagkabalikan na sina Hayden at Dra. Belo kaya tinanong nila si Direk Quark kung ano ang saloobin niya sa kontrobersiyang kinasasangkutan ng (dating) boyfriend ng kanyang ina. Lalo na't inamin na ng legal counsel ni Dra. Belo, si Atty. Adel Tamano, na meron ding sex video ang beauty doctor at si Hayden. (Click here to read related article.)

"Ayaw namin ni Cristalle [Quark's sister] na mag-judge," iwas ni Quark. "This is not our fight. The best we can do is to support our mother. And then again, we don't really want na lumabas yung video. As we all know, may ongoing relationship pa rin sila ni Hayden.

"I told her before, 'I hate Hayden and I don't want him to be a part of my life. But I love you so much that I will support you and I will understand. But you cannot expect me to like him, but you can expect me not to interfere.'"

Hindi man nagbanggit ng pangalan si Quark, sinabi niya na alam niya kung sino ang nagpakalat ng sex videos.

"Alam ko more or less na siya yung kumuha... Medyo may pag-amin. Hindi naman outright, pero noong mga 'Careless Whisper' days pa, sinabi na niyan, 'Sinubukan ko itong ibenta sa ABS-CBN.' So, parang ako, malamang siya yun."

VICKI BELO'S LEGAL COUNSEL. After the VTR interview with Direk Quark, live naman na nakapanayam ni Mo Twister ang legal counsel ni Dra. Belo na si Atty. Adel Tamano. Tinanong ni Mo si Atty. Tamano kung may attempt ba noon na i-blackmail si Dra. Belo upang magbigay ng pera sa mga taong nag-a-upload ng sex video sa Internet para tigilan na ito.

"Actually, the blackmail attempt—in law, it's called grave coercion—they attempted to extort siguro mga four million pesos. Not from Dr. Belo, but from Dr. Kho," banggit ni Atty. Tamano.

May pangalan na ba sila ng suspect?

"Yung sa extortion, I don't think we can divulge it yet," sagot ng legal counsel ni Dra. Belo. "But in regard the uploading, meron na kaming mga lead dito and people na malaki ang probability na sila ang nag-upload nun."

Kailan nangyari yung communication kay Hayden na kailangang magbayad siya ng four million pesos para hindi ma-upload ang mga video na yun sa Internet?

"I'm sorry, that part of the information I should not give yet because we are preparing for an affidavit. We will file it before Wednesday. 'Yan ang commitment namin sa NBI [National Bureau of Investigation]... Other people will give affidavits, we also don't want them na parang maghanda sila [suspected culprits]. We just want the truth to come out."

Ano ang nasa utak ngayon ni Dra. Belo?

"From what I can see, this is a very painful thing for her," sabi ni Atty. Tamano. "May halong galit din, may halong sama ng loob. Because kung pag-iisipan n'yo talaga, kung merong victim dito... Alam ko, maraming magsasabi na the victim is Katrina [Halili], et cetera, et cetera. But one of the biggest victims is also Dra. Belo.
