Ang Facebook post ng model-actor na si Andrew Wolff noong Huwebes, March 17, laban sa Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc. (BPCI) ang nagbigay ng hint na may malaking problema ang kanyang girlfriend na si Ma. Paula Bianca Paz, isa sa mga official candidate ng 2011 Binibining Pilipinas beauty pageant.
At presstime, binura na ni Andrew sa kanyang FB account ang kanyang controversial post laban sa pageant organizer.
May mga post din si Andrew sa kanyang Twitter account tungkol sa diumano'y pagsabotahe ng ibang tao sa Binibining Pilipinas candidacy ng kanyang girlfriend.
"Politics are definitely at play here. Hope their moms are proud, sabotaje, your daughter will never win, tandaan mo 'yan " ang isang telling tweet ng model/actor.
"Goodbye Bb. Pilipinas at goodluck to all the ladies competing" naman ang tweet ni Bianca, na inakusahan na may mga sexy photo at sinisiraan na may sex video sa mga text message.
Sumali na si Bianca, na kilala bilang Candidate No. 28, sa nabanggit na beauty pageant noong 2009, pero hindi siya pinalad na magwagi.
Naglabas si Bianca ng official statement sa kanyang Facebook account kahapon, March 18, tungkol sa disqualification niya sa beauty pageant na gaganapin sa Araneta Coliseum sa April 10, 2011.
Narito ang kanyang official statement:
"I would like to clear things up regarding the issue for the FIRST and LAST time. To make a long story short, I took part in a calendar shoot 2 years ago which never came to mind as a possible hindrance for my participation in the Binibining Pilipinas pageant as I made sure that the finished result would not be less than tasteful and even of editorial standard before being published.
"Unfortunately, BPCI did not have the same opinion of the said shoot and so as of today I have been officially DISQUALIFIED. I would also like to make clear that there are NO, I repeat, NO nude photos or 'sex videos' anywhere existing.
"I respect and accept BPCI's decision and refuse to make the issue any bigger than it already is. I only ask that everyone does the same and refrain themselves from making false judgements and ignorant accusations towards me and anyone else involved. At this point, it's all very unnecessary.
"Instead, I encourage everyone to show support to all remaining candidates and... well... Enjoy the show! This is, after all, 'entertainment.' I want to thank everyone that has supported me. God bless and I love you all!"
Hindi nag-elaborate sa kanilang official statement ang BPCI tungkol sa kanilang desisyon na i-disqualify si Bianca sa pageant.
Si Bianca ang pangalawa sa 40 official candidates na na-disqualify. Nauna nang tinanggal ang candidate na si Roxanne Cabanero dahil sa nude photo scandal nito.
Ito ang opisyal na pahayag ng BPCI tungkol sa kaso ng girlfriend ni Andrew:
"For several decades, Binibining Pilipinas has been the most prestigious pageant in the land, producing a distinguished line of beauty queens that have been a source of national pride. However, Bb. Pilipinas is governed by stringent rules and policies that are acceptable internationally. We strive to be very thorough in our screening, but when violations or misrepresentations unravel, albeit deliberate or not, we call the candidates' attention to the matter. A candidate was subsequently removed from the official roster. We hope that all speculations regarding this incident will cease. We maintain that BPCI is not inclined to delve into the issue any further in order to preserve the integrity of the pageant and the reputations of all concerned parties."
