"I believe that everyone deserves to know the TRUTH."
Ito ang paliwanag ni Quezon City First District Councilor Dorothy "Doray" Delarmente kung bakit nagdesisyon siyang mag-post sa Facebook upang ipakilala sa publiko ang matalik niyang kaibigang si Dr. Geraldine "Ging" Zamora-Racaza.
Nag-ugat ito sa pagsasapubliko ng celebrity stylist na si Liz Uy na ang ama ng kanyang anak ay ang tech CEO na si Raymond Racaza.
Si Raymond ang dating asawa ni Dr. Ging kung saan mayroon silang isang anak na babae.
Sa isang panayam na lumabas sa PhilStar Supreme, sinabi ni Liz na nagkakilala sila ni Raymond noong May 2016 sa isang business meeting.
Ang kaibigan niyang aktres na si Isabelle Daza ang nagpakilala sa dalawa.
Sinabi rin sa artikulo na si Raymond ay "already estranged from his wife, and who has since been annulled" nang maging sila ni Liz.
Umani ng iba't ibang reaksiyon mula sa netizens ang mga pahayag nina Liz at Raymond.

A FRIEND'S FACEBOOK POST
Sa Facebook post ni Councilor Delarmente ay ibinahagi nito ang pagkakakilala niya kay Dr. Ging at kung ano ang pinagdaanan nito habang ongoing ang annulment case nila ni Raymond.
Panimula ng konsehala sa Facebook status niya noong Huwebes, August 16, “Dra. Geraldine Zamora-Racaza has been one of my 'constants' back in Med School.
“She was my sorority batchmate, my classmate, my dance groupmate.
“Since she also lives in Quezon City, we also used to carpool during out of school activities & gimmicks.
“During the days when I was having a difficult time in 1st year of medical school, and her always being at the top of every exam, (she graduated as our class Valedictorian.)
"She would always be there as my 'tutor' and help me as I study after class. (Even when she needs to study as well.)
"She was one of those who helped me become a doctor, and I am and will forever be grateful to her for all the help.
“That is the Dra. Ging that the entire UP Manila & Philippine General Hospital know.
"She is a very sweet, soft spoken and kind person. She would put others first before herself.
"For her patients, she would go above and beyond her duty as a physician.
"Ask anyone who has encountered her in PGH, and they would say 'walang masamang tinapay' kay Dra. Ging.”
Kasunod nito, naging emosyunal si Delarmente para sa kaibigan.
Saad niya, “Ging, thank you for always being there for us. Thank you for being a friend.
"Thank you for always reminding us to be the doctor that we all should be—selfless, kind, patient, forgiving... very forgiving.
“I am crying as I write this piece. No one deserves this pain... and no one deserves to be treated like this, especially for someone as kind as you.
Ibinahagi rin niya ang isang eksena diumano sa korte noong "May 2017" sa first hearing ng annulment case ng kaibigan at sa dating asawa nito.
“I felt your pain when he filed the annulment, and during the first court hearing last MAY 2017, and even more pain when the judge signed the petition last JANUARY 2018.
"I felt your pain after your court hearing. You were very anxious and sad.
"I remember you telling me that when you took the stand for the annulment, detailing your private life to complete strangers, it was a very harrowing experience for you.
"You broke down. A person as nice as you do not deserve that kind of experience. You and you daughter do not deserve that!
"It is hard to lose someone you love to someone else ... but I know that what hurt for you more is thinking of the pain & trauma that this will cause your daughter. As a mother, I feel you."
Pagpapatuloy pa ni Delarmente, "Think of this as a big bump in the road. And you, being a strong person, alam ko kaya mo ito.
"Always remember that you have a lot of friends, and we will all be here for you as you have always been here for us.
"I am not a writer. (I just write in my Facebook page.) I am a doctor and a public official.
"But I am compelled to write this because I believe that everyone deserves to know the TRUTH.
"Everyone deserves to know what a kind and selfless person Dra. Ging is.
"Ito, sinulat ng tao na kilala si Ging for almost 20 years. MULA SA PUSO. (Hindi binayaran.)"
Isinilang ni Liz ang anak nila ni Raymond noong September 20, 2017.
Ngunit noong March 2018 lamang ipinakilala sa publiko ni Liz ang anak sa pamamagitan ng Instagram.
