Antoinette Taus scored the lowest among all of DJ Mo Twister's celebrity guests—answering only 14 out of 40 "Forbidden Questions." She tapped out on the 15th question without hesitation.
"Number 15," starts DJ Mo. "I'm going to encourage you to keep going though. You should beat Cass Ponti [who got 17 points]... Antoinette Taus, virgin or non-virgin?"
The 25-year-old actress pauses a minute.
"That's so bad," she finally says. "These are questions you shouldn't even entertain as a woman...This is something that I've always said that I won't even entertain as a woman. A question like this doesn't deserve an answer."
DJ Mo agrees: "It's damn if you do, damn if you don't."
Antoinette is ready to tap out.
"Sorry," shrieks Dingdong Dantes's ex-girlfriend. "Whenever I hear or read articles about people asking celebrities this question, I always say to myself ‘Why even answer?' Don't answer. Period. It's something that you don't answer."
DJ Mo teases, "You'd be the first one not to answer that question."
Antoinette taps out.
It has been five years since Antoinette was last seen in local showbiz. She had been living in the U.S. where she was trying her luck in Hollywood.
During her hiatus, rumors surfaced that the real reason for her showbiz exodus is her alleged pregnancy—naming ex-boyfriend Dingdong Dantes as the supposed father. Antoinette has denied this hullabaloo.
Offhand, her ignoring the questiojn about whether she is or isn't a virgin revived old issues on whether she did or didn't have a baby.
Some notable questions she did answer are:
Have you ever cheated on your boyfriend? "No. I've only had one boyfriend [Dingdong Dantes]. No, I didn't... He did!"
Rate Dingdong as a kisser. "He's a 10."
Who's the guy that courted you for a long time but you didn't say ‘yes' to? "Well, there's only one because all those years I was with... There would be random whatever whatever but... okay, Gabby Eigenmann. I met him when I was in first year high school. This was way before I met Dingdong and for a few years [he did court me]. I was young. I wasn't ready yet. And now I'm super-duper close to him and his loved one."
Before Antoinette went to the States, she was a regular co-host of SOP, the Sunday musical variety program of GMA-7. Also part of the show are Dingdong and Karylle, who has replaced Antoinette in the young actor's heart.
