Itinanggi ni former actress at incumbent Tacloban City Mayor Cristina Gonzalez-Romualdez ang balitang may problema sa pagsasama nila ng kanyang asawa na si Alfred Romualdez.
Nagsimula ang isyu sa blind item sa radio program nina Arnold Clavio at Ali Sotto sa DZBB noong October 31 tungkol sa third party na sangkot sa problemang pinagdaraanan ng mag-asawa.
Isa sa mga clue ang paulit-ulit na telephone ring.
Ang dating screen name ni Cristina at Kring-Kring Gonzales.
Natukoy na sina Cristina at Alfred ang subject ng blind item dahil sa statement na inilabas ng former actress sa kanyang mga social media account.
Ayon kay Cristina, politically motivated ang mga akusasyon laban sa kanila ng asawa niya at mananagot ang mga nagkakalat ng balita.
Ito ang kabuuang statement ng alkalde ng Tacloban City:
"Recently, there have been malicious accusations hurled against me and my husband. Those accusations are meant to discredit us and doubt the great work we have been doing in Tacloban.
"We are mindful that this move is politically motivated. People behind this scheme shall be held answerable.
"I have been married for 20 years. Sure, we have gone through challenges,each time, we face them, by God’s grace we were able to overcome.
"My commitment to our marriage is bolstered by the fact that I am retiring from politics to take care of our children and focus on being a wife.
"I hope this will put to rest the unfounded lies being propagated by our political opponents.
"My husband is not deterred by this scheme. He will take the lead in uplifting the lives of the Taclobanons.
"May God bless us all!"
