100 Most-Read PEP Stories of 2014

These pictures and CCTV footage more or less captured an essential part of Vhong Navarro’s story about the January 22 incident—which also involved businessman Cedric Lee and model Deniece Cornejo, among others.

This year’s most controversial man in showbiz is Vhong Navarro.

His visit to Deniece Cornejo’s condo unit in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, on that fateful day of January 22, led to a mauling incident, rape and serious illegal detention cases, and jail time for the model and her friends Cedric Lee and Zimmer Raz.

It also brought in two more rape complaints—one of which was filed by another model Roxanne Cabañero—against the It’s Showtime host.

The entire hullabaloo lasted for almost eight months, and 33 of the articles put out on PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) became part of 100 Most-Read Stories of 2014.

Landing the top spot was Vhong Navarro identifies alleged masterminds behind mauling incident, which generated 1,102,383 unique page views (defined as by Support.Google.com as "the number of sessions during which that page was viewed one or more times.")

Next to the Vhong controversy were the hook-ups, engagements, and weddings.

Fans cheered when Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli admitted their relationship on June 19.

Millions of viewers tuned in to the proposal of Dingdong Dantes to Marian Rivera on TV last August 9.

And Drew Arellano and Iya Villania caught the public by surprise when their wedding photos circulated on the social media last January 31.

Their story, 6 Reasons why Iya Villania and Drew Arellano’s wedding is the coolest, captured 1,011,652 unique page views.
