So, what else is new? Joseph Estrada sons’ rivalry fires up

KORONADAL CITY—Declining a proposed campaign endorsement of Sen. Jinggoy Estrada may have further strained the relationship between Rep. JV Ejercito and his older half-brother.

Estrada had prepared a series of TV advertisements showing him doing what had otherwise been unthinkable not too long ago—endorsing the senatorial run of his younger brother.

Production costs alone would have been at least P1 million, while actual showing on prime time TV would have been worth half of the amount for every 30 minutes, said a United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) insider familiar with the story board and campaign plan.

“Senator Jinggoy would spend for everything out of his own pocket,” the Inquirer was told on condition of anonymity.

“The initiative came from him and it’s not that their father (former President Joseph Estrada) had told him to do it,” the source added.

Failed plan

But the plan didn’t work.

Reached by phone, Estrada declined to elaborate on the matter. But in a meaningful tone he said: “You ask him, you ask him.”

Asked if he would ever endorse his brother at some point during the remainder of the campaign, he said, “That remains to be seen.”

Ejercito later released a statement denying that he had rejected Estrada’s planned endorsement.

JV sorry

“Humihingi ako ng paumanhin kay Kuya Jinggoy kung ang naka-abot sa kanya ay ‘ayoko ng endorsement nya.’ Hindi po totoo ito ( I apologize to my elder brother Jinggoy if the news that reached him was that I did not welcome his endorsement),” he said, admitting that he had been told about the campaign ad.

“Sino po ba namang kandidato ang tatanggi sa ganun, lalo na at libre (What candidate would refuse such an offer, especially one that is free)?”

He added: “Pero may mga bagay po na nagiging problema kung bakit hindi ito nagiging ganoon kadali (But there were some problems that’s why it was not so simple a matter).”

TV ad limits

Ejercito explained that his brother’s proposed TV ads might affect his own, given the limits set by the Commission on Elections.

“Kapag lumampas po dito ay baka maging dahilan pa para ma-disqualify ako ng Comelec (If I overstep my ad limits this may lead to my disqualification by the Commission on Elections),” he said.

Ejercito said the additional ads would also affect the campaign plan set long ago by his own team.

“Hindi po madaling magbago ng campaign plan sa kalagitnaan ng kampanya, na to be fair naman sa aming campaign team, ay mukhang maayos naman ang pagtanggap ng ating mga kababayan (It’s not easy to change the ad plan in the middle of the campaign, and to be fair to our campaign team, their plan seems to be well accepted by the public),” he said.

    The Filipino voters will be saved from the destructions of these kids by not wasting their votes on them. This family should be stop now, and this election is our first chance.

    • Waykeber

      Correct! Let’s forget the Estradas from now on. Do not vote for anyone of them running in the May 2013 election. Let Jinggoy finish his term and be it the end for all of the Estradas.

  • http://www.yellowmythbusters.gov.ph/ Weder-Weder Lang

    If you noticed the Gigi Reyes Birthday Video, JV Ejercito was dancing inside the house and Jinggoy Estrada outside. JV is very much inside his father’s heart while Jinggoy always felt like an outsider. Kaya laging inggit si Jinggoy kay JV. But for the sake of our country, please do not elect another Estrada or Ejercito into the government.

      yon lang ang daming bobotante sa manila na ang tingin nila kay erap ay tagapagligtas hehehe

      • Batang Altura

        oo nga sa hirap ng buhay kahit siguro aso ilaban mo kay Lim iboboto ng ibang tao, pero mas miserable magiging buhaynyo pag si Erap ang ibinoto nyo..niloloko lang kayo nyan kaya lang nagbalik ng pagtira sa Maynila para makapagsamantala di na ksi mananalo sa San Juan, binabato na yan ng squatter duon..

      • Guest

        dapat ka ng maimbistiga kung nagbabayad ka ba ng tamang buwis o baka ill-gotten wealth yang $64,000 na yan? Sa VAT pa lang, dapat ay nagbayad ka sa gobyerno ng $7,680. May kilala ako sa BIR at ipapatimbre kita kay Kim Henares. Gusto nyang sampulan yang nga self-employed o yung mga on-line purchases. Maganda kang halimbawa

    • Qwxyz

      sana nga lahat ng botante ay may internet para mapangaralan silang huwag iboto ang mga ganitong uri ng dynasty.

  • farmerpo

    Sana mag duelo na lang sila. Si Erap reperi. Shot gun ang gamitin para sigurado.

    • nes911

      Para siguradong tamaan din si erap?

    Filipinos should realize the mistakes they committed when they put Estrada in power so do not put another Estrada in congress we more than enough politicians who could do better than another Estrada.

    • Tanya Ruiz

      may kasabihan nga na “two heads are better than one” and with Rep. JV’s platform, credentials and record of service he deserves a spot in the Senate.. :)

      • tarikan

        Anyway you put it mga anak sila ng mandarambong, killer (pinatawad na rin daw nila Dacer, Corbito at Bintain tulad ng pagpatawad ni Gloria). Isa sa lob isa sa labas (marami sila sa labas) hehehe).

      • akoypinoi

        at pinagmalaki pa ng tatay na dami daw may gusto sa kanya.. kaya siguro tatakbo ulit sa pagka-mayor para mangurakot ulit at magkababae na naman..

  • http://twitter.com/lovechloe15 chloe evangelista

    i think it is just a misunderstanding between them. See, gustong tulungan ni kuya si bunso, kailangan lang malaman kung ano ang karapat-dapat at angkop na tulong ang dapat ibigay ni kuya dahil tinatanggap naman ni bunso ang alok na tulong :)

  • samantha uy

    JV Ejercito Estrada always regarded his brother Jinggoy with respect. JV never said or done anything that would lead anybody to conclude that their relationship is hostile.They always want to serve their countrymen to the best of their abilities.

    • Noel

      I know JV personally way back at Xavier School. Siya ang palaging nagbibigay kay Jinggoy. Kung anong pagka-disente ni JV, iyon naman pagkabarambado ni Jinggoy.

      • Europa

        I agree. When I visited Manila during the time of Estrada, my friend lamented how Jinggoy was asking a huge sum of money from her. She was swindled by investors. JV and his mother offered help withoput asking for one centavo.

      • Noel

        JV first wanted to run for Senator but Jinggoy also wanted. When Erap asked JV to back out for Jinggoy, JV respectfully obeyed. JV is more decent, more educated and we have not heard of his being involved in any scandal or violence. On the other hand, Jinggoy even got into fights in simple basketball game with fellow movie stars.

      • noyab

        uneducated sila …mga anak ng mandurugas

      • noyab

        the same lang sila anak ng ex convict….

      • Noel

        Kahit sa Bible, ang kasalanan ng magulang ay hindi kasalanan ng anak.

      • Luthmar

        Kasalanan pa rin. Madaling ma influensya ang mga anak. Sabi ni Erap
        kay JV dun sya sa Senate kasi mas malaki pork barrel. Tingnan mo si
        Jinggoy offer pa nya bayaran yung tv ad para sa kanyang ilegit na brother worth P1m or so. Saan kaya galing pera na yan.

      • Batang Altura

        common sense pano ka mag-babarumbado ay anak ka nga sa labas syempre nahihiya din sya kahit pano barumbado din si JV di marunong sumunod sa batas kahit kelan di niya kinilala si GMA..

      • Noel

        Hindi ako anak sa labas ni Erap pero di ko kailan man kinikilala ang pagka-pangulo ni GMA. Hindi lang ako…milyon-milyon Pilipino ang nakakaalam kung paano niya inagaw ang puwesto ni Erap at nandaya pa noong 2004.

      You must be JV’s mother. You said “they”? You mean Erap, Jinggoy and JV “always want to serve their countrymen to the best of their ablilities”? Hellllooooo
      where have you been? Wasn’t Erap convicted of plunder? Jinggoy unfortunately escaped conviction of plunder also. The only reason why they the govt. service is because they can easily get rich. They are in the govt. service for the love of money – nothing else.

  • jgl414567

    Do not vote for sons of ex-convict plunderers!!!

  • Islander

    Please don’t vote for any of them.

    Bakit may namamagitan pa sa kanila kahit na sa campaign? Di pa ba sila nag-uusap ng sila-sila lang?

  • tarikan

    Ayaw pang amenin ni JV na ang endorsement ni Kuya Jinggoy ay kiss of death. I think the root of this sibling rivalry is that: Si Jinggoy inis dahil sabi nya kung sino pa ang anak sa labas sya pa ang gumagamit ng tunay na apilyedo. Si JV naman iniinsulto si Jinggoy sabi nya kung sino pa ang pangit sya pa ang artista. Ayun sagutan: bastardo, pangit, bastardo, pangit, tatay mo mandarambong. Tigil na yan! sabi ni Loi & Guia. Oo nga apektado rin itong mga anak ko pagnakakarinig ng salitang bastardo.

    • Europa

      Joseph Estrada had many mistresses. But his home was with Guia Gomes. He went home to her every night. JV grew up with Erap and was a very good son. However Loi went to the US and left her children. Jinggoy resented JV who was low key and preferred to make money through business , while Jinggoy wanted to follow the footstep of his father so he could be accepted. That means showbiz, corruption , gambling etc.

  • tarikan

    Give chance naman to Laarni, Ma’am Guia. Ibig din nyang maging mayor. Bakit kayo lang daw ba marunong mag-serve sa mga taga-San Juan? Tapos ni Laarni si Weng naman eh mahina raw yung grocery na ipinatayo ni Erap dun sa Cavite.

  • vince_bugaboo

    We must find a way to make or encourage the “sardinas & bigas crowd” to accept the staples and still not vote ang mga cheap na suholerong mandurugas and their ilk.

    Intelligent voters are nightmarishly outnumbered, so despite our earnest campaign on social media to prevent these trapos/ticks/leeches/mandurugases/tulisanes from winning seats in the senate and congress, it might still prove futile.

    Malapit na ang eleksyon, time is running out. We really need concrete and consolidated action to make their losses a reality.

    Suggestions, please…ako tuliro na at pudpod na ang mga daliri ko sa keyboard, wala na rin akong pera para sa internet cafe. Sows maryano! Hindi birong 4 years na namang bilyon-bilyong piso ang mawawala sa kaban ng bayan pag nanalo na naman ang mga ito!
    Ang magiging resulta, sobrang hihirap lalo ang mga tao, lalong dadami ang kriminalidad, pero silang mga mandurugas safe na safe sa kanilang mga mansion! Pu-£)^%$£ng-ina!

    Is there any worthwhile senatorial candidate ? I am looking at the list of candidates and there doesn’t seem to be anyone worth voting for.

  • speedstream2

    What’s the fuss all about? It’s a family matter. Let the family members iron things out.. That’s it. And now, let’s get on with really important matters, like orderly elections, election spending within allowed limits, close examination of candidates’ qualifications, what to do with the so-called political dynasties, among others.

  • pipsirho

    Ay, simple lang naman pala!!! Hindi marunong magplano ng kampanya si Jinggoy at masisira pa ang palno ni JV kung sisingit si kuya!!! Gusto lang kasi ni Erap na palawakin ang “political dynasty” niya kaya pinipilit na magkaisa ang anak na tunay at nak sa labas!!! Sa ngayon yong kabit mayor ng San Juan, kaya dapat naman sa Maynila siya!!!

    Mabuhay ang “political dynasty” sa Pilipinas dahil NANANATILI TAYONG MGA BOBONG BOTANTE!!!

    For so long as media like abs CBN continue to rot Filipino brains, candidates like JV will always have a size able constituency. I do not have a high regard for the majority of Philippine voters. It’s not like they made smart choices in the past.

    Does it really matter what kind of publicity any politician brings out? Filipino voters are clueless in the past and will be clueless in the future. Only in the Philippines can a politicians guilty of graft and corruption can run for governmental office and win.
