Kapamilya host-comedian and talent manager Ogie Diaz shared his previous experience with an actor who cursed him after presuming he was the subject of his blind item.
In his Facebook post, Diaz recounted how he was cursed by an actor who got irked by his blind item.
According to Ogie, the actor called him immediately after his segment and cursed him over the phone.
It happened in the early 2000s when he was still active in doing blind item segments on TV shows that he once hosted.
“Di ko makakalimutan nung mga early 2000, pagkatapos ng blind item segment ko, maya-maya, nagri-ring ang celfone ko. Yung isang aktor, kausap ko. “P—ng ina mo, ako ba yung tinutukoy mo na binigyan ng congressman ng kotse.
“Tang -na mo, ako lahat yung tinutukoy ng mga clue mo, gago ka! Andaming nagtatawagan sa akin, ako daw yung binlaynd item mo,” Ogie recounted.
His recollection came to light when after he was offered an online show where he is set to host another blind item segment.
“Katuwa naman. May nag-alok sa akin ng isang online show. Hindi naman ako ang main host, kundi segment host.
“Bibigyan nila ako ng mga 10 minutes na segment kung saan magba-blind item daw ako with banter with the main hosts,” Ogie shared.

According to Ogie he politely declined the offer because he doesn’t want to experience being cursed because of his blind item.
“Ilambeses na rin akong napaaway. Nagtampo na rin ang ilang artista sa akin. Na sa tuwing magkikita ay parang wala silang nakitang Ogie na nakasalubong nila.
“Ayoko na ng ganong feeling. Lalo na at matanda na ako. Ramdam kong hindi na bagay sa akin yung mag-blind item. Paminsan-minsan na lang basta hindi delikado sa YouTube channel kong Ogie Diaz Showbiz Update.
“Kaya na-realize ko, mas magandang habang nabubuhay, gawa ka ng maraming kabutihan kahit hindi ka naman masyadong perfect. Habang nagkakaedad na rin.
“Kaya marespeto kong tinanggihan ang alok sa akin na show online. Na nagpasalamat din sa akin for my honesty,” he said.
