TV commercial model Ryan Julio gets his first taste of showbiz controversy


"Ayaw ko na pong palakihin at humaba ito dahil pa rin sarespeto sa kanya. Nagtataka po ako kung bakit may ganoong reaksyon si Sir Joey.Tinext pa niya si Tita Becky na ingrato ang anak ko," says Ryan Julio's Mommy Cecille about her son's former manager Joey Aquino.



Nakatanggap ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ngpress statement mula sa talent manager na si Joey Aquino tungkol sa diumano'ypagiging "ingrate" ni Ryan Julio, ang model sa TV commercial ng isang coffeeproduct na may mga kasama itong aliens at tila new kid in school ang dating.

Si Ryan ay first runner-up din sa Mr. Pogi contest ng Eat...Bulaga! noong 2006, kung saan nanalo si Edgar Allan Guzman.

Ayon sa press statement ni Mr. Aquino na manager din ngformer Mutya ng Pilipinas winner at ex-PBB housemate na si Zara Aldana at ngteen newcomer na si PJ Valerio:

"Bago pa siya sumali sa Mr. Pogi ng Eat...Bulaga! pumirma na siya ng kontratasa Fundamental Artist Management o FAM [talent handling group na pag-aari niMr. Aquino] para sa management ng kanyang showbiz career. Ang validity nito ayhanggang 2010.

"Ngunit nang manalo siya bilang first runner-up sa Mr. Poginoong 2006, nagkaroon kami ng internal arrangement, na pinauubaya muna naminang kanyang career kay Ms. Malou Choa-Fagar ng TAPE [Television And ProductionExponents]. Dalawang taon ang bisa ng kanyang kontrata doon, from April, 2006 toApril, 2008.

Patuloy ni Mr. Aquino, "Sa loob ng dalawang taon ay hindinakialam ang FAM sa lahat ng kanilang projects, maging ang kanilang plano. Infairness, ibinigay naman nila ang mga nararapat na komisyon sa kanilangprojects ayon na rin sa probisyon ng aming internal agreement. Pero hindi lahatay dineklara. Tanging mga raket lang niya na aming natutukan o nakarating saaming kaalaman ang aming nakomisyunan.

"Gayunpaman, hindi ito ang isyu. Kung anuman ang legalidadna dapat pag-usapan ay naayos na sa mabuting usapan. Kaya naman opisyal nabinitawan na ng FAM ang career management ni Ryan. Ang tunay na isyu dito ayang mga sumusunod: 1. Ang harap-harapan nilang pagsisinungaling na ‘di pa rawsila [Ryan and company] pumipirma ng kontrata kay Becky Aguila; samantalangnakakontrata pa rin siya sa FAM, at, 2. Ang kawalan nila ng respeto sa taongnagmalasakit, naniwala at nagtiyaga nung nagsisimula pa lang siya sa showbiz.

"Ang sa amin lang, gusto naming iparating sa showbiz angganitong klase ng tao. Na hindi namin hahayaan na ibasura at tapakan ang amingdignidad at kredibilidad."

May sagot naman ang ina ni Ryan na si Mommy Cecille sa pressstatement ni Mr. Aquino.

" First of all, before we signed contract with Tita BeckyAguila last July 1, 2008, Ryan was already released, effective June 27, 2008.

"We settled all our obligations with him [Joey Aquino]amicably. We buy-out the contract for Php 50 thousand per year. We have remainingtwo years so we pay him a total of Php 100 thou for the contract alone.Regarding po sa commissions for the commercials, we gave him the 30 percentcommission, kahit po hindi sa kanya galing ang project.

"So, sa lahat po ng project ni Ryan sa commercial, 30percent goes to the agent and the other 30 percent goes to Sir Joey. And lahatpo ng project na ginawa ni Ryan during his contract with TAPE—which has aninclusive date of May 2006 to May 2008—nagko-comply po kami ng aming financialobligation sa FAM. Lahat po yan ay supported ng documents. Kahit po itonghuling payment namin, may release paper kami and the photo-copy of themanager's check amounting to Php 153,850. Masasabi ko po we settled it amicablyand wala naman po naging problema doon sa last meeting namin," sabi pa ni MommyCecille.

"At hanggang ngayon po, nagpapasalamat po kami sa kanya samga ginawa po niya kay Ryan since nung start ng Mr. Pogi. We really appreciateand andito pa din po ang respeto namin sa kanya. Hindi na po mawawala ‘yon."

Dagdag pa ni Mommy Cecille, "Kung wala po kaming respeto sa kanya, hindi na kami nagpaalamnang maayos at nakipag-usap sa kanya. Nung matapos ang contract namin sa TAPE,one year naghintay ang anak ko na bigyan niya ng project pero wala siyang ibinibigay.

"Ayaw ko na pong palakihin at humaba ito dahil pa rin sarespeto sa kanya. Nagtataka po ako kung bakit may ganoong reaksyon si Sir Joey.Tinext pa niya si Tita Becky na ingrato ang anak ko.

Ipinakita pa sa amin ni Mommy Cecille ang text ni Mr. Aquinokay Tita Becky.

"Hi, Becky. This is Joey Aquino, manager of PJ Valerio andZara Aldana. Nice to know that our talents are working together. Jasmine withZara (sa Wheel of Fortune), PJ and Empress. Now, PJ will be working with yournew talent Ryan Julio. Ironically, Ryan has an existing contract with me until2010 when he signed a contract with you. Don't worry, he has been releasedeffective June 27, 2008. I don't keep INGRATE talents like him. Hopefully, aswe are both talent managers, he will not do the same with you. This is just anotice of concern. See you around. Thanks."

"Nasaktan ako," sabi ni Mommy Cecille. "Ang ayos ng usapannamin. Nabayaran namin yung demands niya. Alam niya ang totoo. Nag-text siyang, ‘Okey, everything was settled. I got the check.' Akala ko okey na yun atnagbigay pa siya ng release paper," paliwanag pa ng ina ni Ryan.

Nakatanggap din ang PEP ng text mula kay Tita Becky tungkol saisyung ito:

"Bayad ang ex-manager. Ryan paid him almost 154 thou for therelease. The ex-manager got paid for all the commercials Ryan got fromdifferent ad agencies even if the project was booked by another agency. He hasnever given Ryan work after ‘Eat Bulaga'. He didn't even recommended the boy inthe ABC project I got for him. He had the chance but he did not move for Ryan.I signed him up July 1. The ex-manager released him June 27. The ex-managertexted me that time. I had no knowledge before that Ryan had a manager. I wasunder the impression that he was a former talent of TAPE ofc.

Dagdag text-tsika pa ni Tita Becky: "Ryan Julio , 19 and5'7" is the cute Nescafe Boy. He's upcoming project is with ABC 5. He playsleading man to 15 year old Empress Schuck. Empress plays the lead role. ‘G& G' is a teenage drama series coming very soon in ABC-5."
