Singer Geneva Cruz appeared for the first time yesterday, May 10, on Showbiz Central's Don't Lie to Me segment. She responded to controversial issues that continue to hound her even as she stayed out of the limelight.
SC host Rufa Mae Quinto who substituted John "Sweet" Lapus as interrogator, asked Geneva, "Para suportahan ang PETA, naging vegetarian ka na rin. Ang gusto ko malaman, kahit vegetarian ka na, natukso ka pa rin ba na kumain ng karne?"
Geneva gave Rufa Mae a playful smile and said, "Anong klaseng karne, girl?"
Kidding aside, Geneva admitted ("Yes! Oo naman") that she indeed has thoughts about eating meat. The lie detector machine gave her answer as the truth and nothing but. When asked to explain, Geneva shared, "Pag naging vegan ka kasi, hindi ka na kakain ng fish o kahit anong crustacean—anything na may shell. Nag-start lang ako noong mag-two years pa lang. Pero since I was fifteen, kumakain pa ako ng laman-dagat, tapos naging on-off vegetarian ako dahil pinapagalitan ako ng tatay ko, kasi akala niya na pag vegetarian ka at walang karne, e, mawawalan ka ng energy. Ayun, I really love animals and I'd rather starve than eat them."
Giving Rufa Mae another joking look, Geneva added, "Depende 'yan sa karne."
The light exchange of laughter from Rufa Mae and Geneva vanished when Rufa Mae asked the next question—a question that proved quite sensitive.
"Matagal na kayo ni KC [KC Montero, Geneva's husband] pero up to know, hindi pa rin kayo nagkakaanak. Is it true na kaya ayaw mo magkaanak, dahil na-trauma ka na dahil ikaw ay nakunan diumano?"
"Yes," Geneva answered, "three times."
Once again, the machine confirmed Geneva's answer as the truth.
"Ano ba 'yan, grabe , Mother's Day," Geneva suddenly commented. Trying to keep a straight face, she explained, "As a woman, kasi napakahirap na ma-experience na mawalan ng anak—mga anak, in my case. I don't really want na ikwento nang buo but yeah, we did try and I got pregnant three times but unfortunately the little KCs did not survive."
The last question for Geneva dwelled on a controversial matter. "Once and for all, kayo pa rin ba ni KC?" asked Rufa Mae.
"Yes," Geneva said.
This time, the lie detector disagreed and gave Geneva's answer as a lie. When asked to explain, Geneva said, "I am not gonna explain anything. It's Mother's Day. I miss my son very much."
