If only the 80s already swam in the internet ocean among other scheme of things, PEPSI PALOMA could’ve gotten justice from the tragic situation she was plunged into at a very young age. It was a celebrated case where she was allegedly raped by Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon and Ritchie D’Horsie, hosts of EatBulaga! and the earlier two, part of the Tito, Vic & Joey fame. If compared to the recent similar case involving an upstart model Deniece Cornejo and dancer-not-so-funny-comedian Vhong [what's with the V and the H?] Navarro, the latter would simply be kindergarten. To this day, PEPSI PALOMA still has to get justice as evident in a post on an FB page dedicated in memoriam : [Dated Post]Unang nasubukan ang galing ni Sotto noong Oct. 1982 nang pangunahan niya ang pag-areglo sa kasong rape na isinampa ng sexy stars na sina Pepsi Paloma at Guada Guarin laban sa kanyang kapatid na si Vic Sotto at mga kasamang sina Joey de Leon at Richie D’Horsie. Sa record ng kaso, nabulgar ang rape case nang lapitan ng ina ni Pepsi Paloma si Atty Rene Cayetano (ama ng senatorial candidate na si Pia Cayetano) para hingan ng tulong para makamtan ng kanyang anak ang katarungan na umanoy minolestiya ng tatlong host ng Eat Bulaga.
Nang nabatid na ikinakasa na ng naging senador na si Cayetano ang kaso sa piskalya ng QC, biglang naglaho ang tin-edyer na starlet na hindi nagtagal ay nabawi ng mga tauhan nina Col. Rolando Abadilla at Capt. Panfilo Lacson ng MISG sa kamay ng kilalang hoodlum na si Ben Ulo. Umalingasaw ang pangalan ng mga Sotto nang aminin ni Ben Ulo na tauhan siya ng mga Castelo, maternal clan nina Tito at Vic.
Ayon kay Pepsi Paloma, umano’y mismong si Tito Sotto ang pumilit sa kanya na pirmahan ang affidavit of desistance para hindi matuloy ang kasong may parusang bitay. Tuluyang napigil ang pag-inog ng katarungan nang nagpakumbaba ang mga komedyante at naglabas ng public apology sa husgado kung saan inamin din ng mga ito ang nagawang krimen sa starlet na nagbigti ilang taon ang nakalipas dahil sa umano’y hindi pa rin nakalimutan ang kahalayang ginawa sa kanya ng mga artistang kabilang ngayon sa likod ng kandidatura ni Poe. Multuhin sana kayo ng mga konsensya nyo!
Then, there are other celebrated showbiz rape cases but this is the most tragic ever since the victim committed suicide after being harassed not to pursue the case. Maggie dela Riva got justice and her rapists were executed… Rape is committed when a person refuses to have carnal knowledge no matter what she/he is in society. The refusal and the use of power to achieve the act is rape… But in Pepsi’s case which occurred in the early 80s, justice will merely be achieved in some mysterious and mystical ways unknown to these monsters!
Far and away, the human consciousness adrift past all tribulations and get stuck in a flytrap where nothing comes out unglued from a deep-seated hunger to nurture. Such is a situation where losing is not an option but the plague. Continue reading
