The revocation of Hayden Kho's medical license as ordered recently by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) did nothing to soften Katrina Halili's feeling of resentment against the cosmetic surgeon.
"Medyo natuwa din naman ako sa resulta ng PRC, kahit papaano isa 'yon sa mga pinaglalaban ko, so nabawasan. Pero hindi pa po tapos ang laban dahil meron pa po kaming criminal case [against Hayden]," said Katrina at the press conference of Darna held yesterday, November 30, at 55 Events Place on Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
Katrina, who is the latest villain addition in the Darna saga, personally requested the PRC to cancel Hayden's license following the proliferation of their sex videos last May. The actress argued that Hayden's filming what was supposed to be a private moment was unbecoming of a professional doctor.
The PRC eventually sided with Katrina's argument, stating that the institution has found sufficient grounds to cancel Kho's medical license. PRC legal and investigation division chief Pharson Mamalo described Hayden's act as "immoral, dishonorable, and unethical."
BEGGING FOR TRANQUILITY. Katrina confessed feeling traumatized by the unfortunate incident, which left her vulnerable to public ridicule and condemnation from other sectors.
The experience made Katrina distrustful of men in general. Though never wanting when it comes to admirers and suitors, the Starstruck alumna cited the unpleasant experience as the major reason she intends to remain single for the time being.
"Marami pa kong dapat isipin, like trabaho and 'yong kaso... Hindi pa ako ready [to have a boyfriend] and may mga issues pa ko na dapat harapin."
Katrina is also presently at odds with popular cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo, who for the longest time was publicly known as Kho's real girlfriend. The sex video exposed Katrina and Kho's clandestine affair.
But while Vicki and Hayden's "friendship" survived the scandal, Belo's professional and even personal relationship with Katrina instantly ceased the moment the controversy erupted.
But is Katrina still open with the possibility of patching her differences with Belo?
"Oo naman po," she answered optimistically. "'Pag natapos na 'yong lahat ng issues. Siyempre, ayoko naman ng may kaaway para may peace of mind tayong lahat."
Asked to comment on Vicki's continuing ties with Hayden, Katrina said cautiously, "Ayoko po mag-comment. Meron po tayong kanya-kanyang opinyon and desisyon sa buhay."
