As promised, entertainment editor Ricky Lo responded to the statements made by actress Kris Aquino in reaction to his article about Bimby not attending the first birthday party of Michael James (MJ), the son of James Yap and Michela Cazzola.
In his FunFare article dated August 16, 2017, Ricky made it clear that he was told by the event coordinator that Bimby will be attending.
“The other guests (many of them James’ friends from the Chinese community) were asking the same thing, but Doc Welson and I said we didn’t know, that we didn’t have any idea, and neither did James who assured that Bimby (and presumably other half-brother Joshua) was invited. Before we left (Doc Welson bound for home and I for the STAR office where a blank page was waiting to be filled up), we asked an events coordinator if Bimby was coming. Answer was yes.”
Ricky also added that the day after he wrote the article, Michela texted him the following:
“I told the (coordinator) to cross out Bimby’s name from the list because Kris and I have already agreed beforehand that the kids would be meeting in private…” adding, “I don’t want to create issues where everybody is OK already.”
As for Kris’ reaction to his article, this is what Ricky has to say:
