"Nagkabalikan ulit sina Vicki at Hayden. Halos araw-araw, magkasama sila."
That's been the tittle-tattle in showbiz after reports erupted that Dra. Vicki Belo, one of the country's most sought-after beauty doctors, spent Christmas with the family of Dr. Hayden Kho.
The couple broke up last December 10, 2008 (click here to read the article), but the public heard nothing from them until Hayden broke his silence in an interview with Lhar Santiago on 24 Oras last December 24.
He confirmed reports about his suicide attempt, during which the words "I love Vicki" were written all over his body. He also admitted his "very, very, very short affair" with actress Katrina Halili. But he denied involvement with sexy comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto and the existence of a sex video.
Dr. Hayden said, "There is none, nil, zero."
Yet a cloud of doubt and uncertainty hung over his story.
Again last January 3, in a different interview with Startalk, he stressed, "Wala po talagang sex video. Papatunayan ko po sa inyo, wala pong sex video. Ang meron po kasi is video na nagsasalita yung tao. Face lang po."
But several showbiz insiders refuted the young doctor's statements: "Meron daw talagang sex video."
A reliable source in the famous beauty doctor's circle affirmed the circulating rumors: "Dra. Vicki has it."
Now, whether it's Hayden's "talking heads" video or an explicit sex video, whoever has it can choose to erase it any time, of course. The issue would become an urban myth.
Then, again, second riddle was insinuated by Hayden himself in his interview with Startalk.
What was his "secret kasalanan"?
He related, "Pinagkaisahan na nila ‘ko. Yung mga barkada ko, supposedly...Parang conspiracy...May ginawa akong mali sa kanya, ngayon, bumawi siya sa akin." (Click here to read story.)
Here's the story that reached PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal):
"Nagkaroon ng affair si Hayden sa isa sa mga empleyado ng Belo, at yung empleyado na iyon ay may boyfriend na doctor, na kaibigan din ni Hayden. Mabait at maganda yung babae.
"Parang ganito yung nangyari, nasa iisang opisina sila, e, pareho pang bata...Ayun..."
"Pero yung babae, nag-resign noong October pa yata. Matagal na."
The woman's boyfriend allegedly found out. But it's unclear whether he was the one who told Dra. Vicki about Hayden's illicit affair—including the sex video—or the beauty doctor found out about it herself.
Even as the truth remains elusive, a third question arises. Are they back together?
The buzz that has been going around is, "Oo, nagkabalikan sila at halos araw-araw magkasama."
Even Rufa Mae, in her interview with Showbiz Central last December 27, remarked: "Magkakabalikan din pala sila ‘tapos dinamay-damay pa nila ako!"
But our reliable source said, "It's not true. Although, araw-araw talaga silang magkasama, kasi si Hayden, he's been having sessions with his doctor, at ganun din si Vicky, nagka-counseling."
She added, "Si Vicky, very forgiving, kaya nga't sinasamahan pa niya. Parang lumalabas yung maternal instincts niya."
But Vicki has been getting advice from the people around her: "Dapat final na yung breakup. Wala nang balikan."
