Alleged murder victim Pamela Ortiz surfaces on Startalk to kill rumor

Alive and well and visibly shaken, Pamela Ortiz went on Startalk to disprove the rumor of her death at the hands of her own husband.


Former '90s bold star Pamela Ortiz, who starred in such films as Virgin Wife and Alipin ng Tukso, was reportedly killed by her own husband, according to a segment hosted by The Buzz's Jobert Sucaldito last July 26. The story was also told in detail in Jobert's tabloid column, saying that he received a text message containing the bad news and that it was four days before her body was discovered by the police in the former sexy star's backyard in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Last August 1 on Startalk, host Joey de Leon presented a very solid and very healthy Pamela Ortiz. The shocking news affected Pamela, as she said in a quivering voice that belied her radiant smile: "Nangatog ako."

When asked what she felt when she received the news of her own demise, Pamela explained, "Gumagalaw akong maghapon. Parang nanginginig ang katawan ko kasi nagulat talaga ako dahil sa balitang iyon."

When asked if she watched the news on The Buzz, she said, "Hindi po kami nanonood noong time na 'yon. May tumawag lang sa husband ko na, 'O, patay na daw ang asawa mo, sabi doon sa TV.' Tapos ang dami na pong tumawag."


How did Pamela's husband react when he found out that he was being blamed for the alleged killing of his own wife?

Pamela answered, "Hindi po magagawa ng asawa kong pumatay. Talagang napangiti siya at galit sa nagbalita na 'yon. Tinawagan ko agad si Tito Jobert para sabihin na 'Tito, hindi po ako patay...'"

So how did the conversation with Jobert go since it was his broadcast that spread the news?

"Naghingi po siya ng pasensiya," said Pamela. "Tapos may nag-text lang daw sa kanya so finorward niya sa akin iyong cellphone number. So, tinext ko, may number doon sa cellphone ko, may tumawag sa cellphone na nagpakilala na Katrina. So akala ko si Katrina Paula, so tinext ko siya na, 'Sis, bakit mo naman ginagawa sa akin ito? May nagawa ba akong masama?' Sumagot naman siya. Sabi niya, 'Sis, hindi ko alam 'yan.' Tapos tumawag iyong totoong Katrina para sabihin na, 'Sis, hindi ko naman alam number mo.' Sabi niyang ganoon."

So, she has no idea who's behind the spreading of the rumor?

"Wala kasi ang number ko ngayon, bihira lang ang nakakaalam," said Pamela. "Tapos ginamit pa niya si Katrina na pinagsisira kaming dalawa, na imposible gawin ni Katrina dahil una pa lang kami sa showbiz, best friend ko na siya."

Since everything has been cleared up, how is Pamela doing, especially her family? "Ok naman po, masaya naman po," smiled Pamela.

Does she want to return to show business? "Wala pong artista na hindi gustong bumalik sa showbiz," she said.

What is her message to everyone, especially to the person behind the rumor?

"Sana po, bago kayo magbalita, katulad ng GMA-7, bago sila naniwala na patay ako, pumunta muna sila sa Pampanga para hanapin kung saan ako nakaburol!" laughed Pamela.

"Pumunta sila tapos sinabihan ako ng kapitbahay namin na nagsabi na patay na daw ako, so sinabi ng kapitbahay ko [sa GMA-7] na hindi nga totoo 'yon. Sa pagbabalita po, dapat sinisigurado muna, lalo kung buhay ang pinag-uusapan."
