Nagsalita ang editor-in-chief ng FHM Philippines na si AllanMadrilejos kaugnay sa kasong inihain ni Manila CongressmanBienvenido Abante at ng ilang church representatives laban sa FHM at ilan pang men's magazines at tabloids.

"The said magazines and tabloids printed, published,distributed, circulated and sold in the City of Manila contain pornographic,obscene, erotic, indecent, or lewd pictures or poses that show, depict,exhibit, or describe nude or semi-nude bodies, sexual acts, sexual intercourse,private parts of the human body of both male and female, with no educational,artistic, cultural or scientific value, but clearly and purely intended orcalculated to draw lust, stimulate sexual drive, excite impure imagination orarouse prurient interest," saad ng criminal complaint na inihain ni Cong.Abante. Sakop ng reklamo ang buwan at taon ng September 2007 hanggang July ngtaong kasalukuyan.

Kahapon, July 17, sa isang press conference na inihanda ilang orasbago magsimula ang annual FHM 100 Sexiest Women event sa World Trade Center saPasay City ay nagkaroon ng pagkakataon ang mga miyembro ng media na makapanayamsi Allan.

"Hindi tayo puwedeng mag-comment about the case kasi wehaven't really received a copy of the complaint," paliwanag ni Allan.

Sa kasalukuyandaw ay hindi pa malinaw sa kanya kung paano ang magiging takbo ng naipasangcourt complaint.

"May proseso yata ‘to, hindi ko alam. Pero mukhangmaghihintay ka pa ng mga ilang linggo o araw."

Noong panahon kasi na pumutok ang balita ay busy na angbuong FHM team sa paghahanda para sa victory party ng FHM Sexiest Women na tinawag nilang "FHM Underground" kaya hindi muna nilainisip ang court case. Hindi naman daw nakaapekto sa grupo ang kinakaharap nademanda, at ika nga, the show must go on.

"Ganoon talaga e," iling ng FHM chief. "Tuloy na lang natin‘yong show. ‘Yong show yung focus ngayong linggo na ito, 'tapos bukas trabaho naulit para sa mga susunod na issue."

ALL FOR THE FANS. Nagingcontroversial din this year ang nangyaring botohan particularly sa top kungsaan mahigpit ang naging laban ng mga fans nina Marian Rivera at Angel Locsin.

Nagreklamo ang ilang fans ni Angel at kinuwestiyon angnaging final tally kung saan nanalo si Marian. Pumangalawa ang back-to-backwinner na si Katrina Halili samantalang pumangatlo naman ang former Lobo lead star. Nagpakalat pa nga nge-mail letter ang ilang die-hard fans ni Angel para ilabas ang kanilangsaloobin sa naging final result ng botohan.

"Hindi maiiwasan, e...fans kasi ang may say dito, so hindinamin aalisin ‘yong karapatan nila na kuwestiyunin 'yong resulta ng list. Walanaman itong talent portion, hindi naman ito based on the sales, hindi ito basedkung ilang beses ka na lumabas sa magazine. I mean, lahat naman ‘yan friendsnatin.

"Okay lang yon para sa akin. I think it's very healthy, it'sa healthy sign that the readers are really interested sa campaign," pagwawakas ni Allan.
