A wake-up call for Chiz Escudero



I am never one to rejoice at another man’s predicament—given my strong belief in karma or whatever you wish upon another comes back to you—but Sen. Chiz Escudero deserves the plunge in his ratings in the latest survey.

From No. 2, the young reelectionist senator has gone down to fourth place in the latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) election surveys.

It’s a wake-up call for the senator which, to his credit, he acknowledges.

But Escudero said the wake-call tells him to put more work in his reelection bid, and not in his perceived character flaws.

He doesn’t believe that his spat with the parents of actress Heart Evangelista, his girlfriend, caused the drop in his ratings.

Reynaldo and Cecile Ongpauco complain that the senator doesn’t give them due respect as Heart’s parents and his prospective parents-in-law.

They gripe that the senator is always drunk whenever he talks to them, a no-no for a conservative family with Chinese roots.

If Escudero would just acknowledge his fault—he denies he treats the Ongpaucos shabbily, which is worse—perhaps things might turn out for the better for him and his beloved Heart.

For what would the Ongpaucos get from inventing a story about Chiz’s alleged drunkenness and disrespectful attitude towards them?

The Ongpaucos’ disapproval of Chiz comes not from his being a “poor boy” but from his alleged uncouth manner and drinking.

Rey and Baby told me that they felt proud when they heard that their daughter was dating a senator who’s intelligent and popular with the masses.

So there was no reason for them to disapprove of Chiz as their future son-in-law, if only the senator were respectful to them.

* * *

Why doesn’t Chiz follow the advice of Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, his matchmaker in the relationship, to also court his sweetheart’s parents?

Why doesn’t he also follow the counsel of his fellow Team PNoy senatorial candidate, former Las Piñas Rep. Cynthia Villar, to treat the Ongpaucos like his own parents?

Villar said that when a man marries his girlfriend, he also marries into her family.

* * *

When a blogger asked Chiz Escudero if he drinks a lot, he said no.

He could be lying through his teeth.

His friends have told this columnist that when Chiz drinks alcohol, he has one too many, he metamorphoses into a different personality,

“He becomes a loudmouth, he curses like a stevedore and he doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing,” said a government official whose identity I’m withholding.

The description of the senator is far different from what he projects to the public, which is that of a soft-spoken, gentle and wholesome personality.

I glossed over what I was told about the senator because I once had a drinking problem myself, and I knew I could overcome it.

Besides, the personal flaw of a public official, as long as it doesn’t affect his work, is none of my business as a columnist.

So, my unsolicited advice to Chiz as a fellow drinker is to quit the bottle for now until he won’t find a need for it.

If he can’t, he may need help.

* * *

If Escudero goes further down in the ratings game because of his spat with who could be his future parents-in-law, expect the ratings of very qualified senatorial candidates to go up.

Expect former Senators Dick Gordon and Ramon Magsaysay Jr. to get included in the “Magic 12” in the next surveys.

    A person with a drinking problem will be the last one to admit or acknowledge that he or she has a problem. Similarly, admitting that the drop in the surveys is an offshoot of the fallout with his potential in-laws is like saying Heart’s parents are right and Chiz is wrong. So, he does the next best thing…to reconnect with the voters.

  • go88

    Maybe escudero smells alcohol, but you stink ‘smear campaign’….. the best terms that describes you is ‘for sale’ … it’s because of wh*res like you that this country is going down the river.

  • Noel

    Whether Chiz drops down to second, 5th or 10th, he’s going to win just the same. So, this ratings or surveys are irrelevant to him.

    But I would agree that when one gets drunk, he becomes a different person. In his normal self, Chiz is already talkative, fast talker and very opinionated. So, don’t be surprised if he turns into a big mouth bad guy when drunk.

  • randyaltarejos

    What’s the difference between an ordinary person and a ranking public official when they get drunk? Well, the intoxicating effects of the liquor or beer do not choose man’s stature in life. It depends on who is drinking and the person’s personality. He must know how to carry himself even if he’s intoxicated. There’s saying that if your drink, don’t put it in your head, but to the stomach.”



    • Noel

      If Mon writes similar smear column against Chavit Singson, Mon would have been dead by now.

    hoi tulfing, dapat sa pinoy parazzi ka sumusulat. kaya ka nagulpi e, napakatsismoso mo.

  • eirons1043

    Nice observation sir Mon. But I believe the bigger factor in Chiz slide is the Bobby O. connection. This Bobby O. guy has a slimer image than Lucio Tan and Joe de V.combined. He really pull it big during Marcos and Gloria’s terms a combined 29 years of absolute power to make easy money as big time Fixer Legally kuno. But Chiz will surely land in the top 6 slot unless more bombshell drops from credible guys like the Ongpaucos. Chiz will need lots of moolah (from the Senate Pork Barrel or Bobby O) to sustain the expensive lifestyle of Heart.

    • isidro c. valencia

      The Chinese or Taipans have developed a formula to maintain their connections with the government. That is to extend financial assistance to whoever has the potential to lead our country.

      Ongpins have good relationships with the Marcos. So do Escuderos. These are the remnants or babies of martial law attempting to resurrect in power, again at the expense of Filipino people.

      Never again.

        Well, her parents were able to prevent it before Echo picked her cherry. This time, Chiz did not only picked her cherry but owns it.

    The Ongpaucos couple should have had CONFRONTED CHIZ in the first place, telling him of WHAT they wanted more on his character and that to me would be a better manner…But their millions makes them PROUD making themselves thinks that they can BUY a good sleep while crucifying Chiz in Public…

  • ShibumiNinja

    A wake-up call for Chiz Escudero….by Tulfo.

    Isn’t it Heart the Wake Up call for Chiz.

    Whenever Chiz sees Heart, there is a wake up call under, always ready to fight.
    And why not…Heart is a natural Viagra.

    Is the gossip true that Chiz is one of FPJ’s drinkling buddy, and he was with him when he suffered that fatal stroke? Just asking.

  • buttones

    We as Filipino are not used to alcohol, something in our genes, like North American Indians and so many groups of peoples so when we have one too many we simply lose control, it is not part of our culture, people like Escudero, despite wishing to appear sophisticated in being able to drink like a ’white man’- simply lacks the genes, and ends up a fool…

  • Pologs

    Mon Tulfo this is not a case that expect you to champion, find something of more significance and help someone who really needs your assistance. This is low, low, low for you. May ratings rin ba ang mga columnist? The more readers, the better pay or more perks? If that were the case, then I’d understand why you chose to use your square inch for this topic.

  • boybakal

    Escudero is not alone….He is in the company of these Famous Alcoholics:

    1. Ulysses S. Grant. 18th president of the United States (1869-1877). His
    drinking seems to have been brought on by boredom.

    2.Edgar Allen Poe, He published much of his now-famous literature in between bouts of drinking.

    3. Joseph Stalin. The son of an alcoholic father. He was jealous and insecure, that he could either exile or execute those who he felt threatened

    4. Alexander the Great – The famed tactioner and military genius was also one of the first publicly acknowledged alcoholics

    5. Earnest Hemingway – The great author who was the master of the short,
    punchy sentence and the macho life was a self-professed alcoholic.

    6. FPJ and Erap…two famous Filipino drinking buddies.

    The only regret of Chiz would be, Except for Erap…they all die young.

    • doncleo

      except for the two Filipino drinking buddies, these people achieved much in their own rights..comes now a lasenggero senator in the person of Chiz..what has he done much to say that he is outstanding or a true hope of the future? all he has shown is a trapo attitude of ” chamelionic” opportunism.

    • Noel

      I think among Chiz’s drinking buddies is Malacanang Executive Secretary Ochoa.

  • TT Knew

    I have never read an article that is full of innuendos and insinuations until now. Strategically placed phrases such as “his perceived character flaws”, “Chiz’s alleged drunkenness and disrespectful attitude”, “He could be lying through his teeth”, etc. These are designed to sway readers to favor the Ongpaucos and the voters to abandon Escudero. Of course these are all hearsay. Mon Tulfo also glaringly ignored the fact that Heart Evangelista has denied all accusations towards her partner. I am not sure what this is but surely this is not journalism. A paid advertisement perhaps?

    The Bible itself prescribes the requirement to honor thy father and mother. To go against the Holy Scriptures in the name of love is nothing new. It could only mean pure, unadulterated and absolute agony and persecution. The public can fully see its effects on the couple. It is never too late to be humble, accept our mistake and start all over. Its the right thing to do in this regard. Otherwise, face the bitter consequence.

  • Aida Ramos

    This column should be classified under entertainment where gossip abound. No sense to be considered important. Tulfo should start reviewing his personality and columns. Make sense!

    Erap, para sa mahirap. Ay mali. Erap, para sa kanyang pangarap gamit ang mahihirap. Yan ang ang tama!

  • http://pedestrianobserver.blogspot.com/ Political Jaywalker

    So it appears that the Ongpauco’s are telling the truth regarding Chiz reeking with alcohol and rightly so will of course show their displeasure. No parent would ever wish their daughter to be with someone who is uncouth and worse has a drinking problem. What is even worst is when Escudero shows his lousy upbringing by going public when he could have just talked to Heart’s parents to thresh out the problem.

    Someone ought to tell Chiz that it is scandalous and unmanly in Pinoy macho culture to engage in a public spat with of all people the parents of the women you love or was he just using heart thus he treats her parents like trash? But if Chiz can’t really help it and seems to enjoy the public spat he should take lessons on how to cry in public like what Kris & James Yap is doing, LOL.

  • $44843778

    For Chiz to tell the public he wasn’t disrespectful to Heart’s parents and not true he was drunk on those occasions speak volumes about this Senator. Why hold a presscon to disprove Heart’s parents “allegations”? Couldn’t he just make peace with the parents privately and apologized for his rudeness in the past? He should have taken Sen. Miriam’s advice to court Heart’s parents. Mrs. Villar is also right when she said that Sen. Chiz should also treat Heart’s family as his own.

    Does anyone know why his marriage was annulled? Anyways, it’s none of my business and anyone’s. BUT, character of a candidate should be taken into account when we vote.

    5 columns devoted to a subject that has no redeeming social value makes you wonder what’s the motive of the so called journalist. Money is quite obvious since the writer is favouring the rich and moneyed, the Ongpaucos. In this column he added more paying clients, paying either cash or for future political favours. Their names were place in a subtle manner. Look at the very last sentence to find their names.

  • alienpatriot

    What exactly was newsworhy here? Chiz MAY drink too much. You need evidence before you can make statements like that. This is just political trash-talk. Ramon is just trying to sabotage Chiz’s campaign. That is all.
    There is a lot of reason to believe that Heart’s parents are the ones with a problem. They can’t accept the choices of their adult daughter. It is nice if the parents respect their daughter enough for them to behave reasonably and it is nice when the prospective son-in-law respects his future parents-in-law enough to treat them well.
    I can’t say for sure in the latter case (although Chiz is not making any negative comment on the behaviour of the Ongpaucos which shows a lot of restraint on his part). On the former case, however, the evidence is clearer.
    Heart is 28, not 16. She can make her own decisions. The fact that Heart is choosing Chiz over her parents might say more about her parents. Maybe if they learn to behave like adults the problem can be resolved.

    ito ang magandang basehan natin sa isang tao…
    ang mga MAGULANG ang siyang bahagi ng isang pamilya sila ang Haligi at Buhay.
    ang pananaw nila kay Chez ay isang maling Ehemplo para kanilang anak.

    yan ang TOTOO dahil kung naging mabuting tao at may respeto siya sa magulang ni Heart sigurado hindi magiging issue si mr. Escudero sa madla o taong bayan.

    Really? Mrs. Cynthia Villar said something to that effect, humility? Mon Tulfo, pakibusisi mo nga kung pano tratuhin ni Mrs. Villar mga tauhan nya? Umpisahan mo sa bahay nila sa BF Resort Las Piñas.

      kung ang tingin nga sa mga nurses magiging katulong lang e di ang tingin nyan sa kasambahay ay mga alipin.

    Now That’s Entertainment! Commercial muna…;-)

  • bebang

    First clue that this is propaganda….using the word “plunge” to describe drop in rating from 2nd to…..wait for it……4th (even if news states the position is 3rd to 4th, as he shares the spot with another).

    A wake-up call for Chiz Escudero….

    Gaya nga ng kasabihan….Gisingin muna ang tulog wag lang ang lasing.
    Dahil ang lasing….talagang lasing kahit gumising.
    It means….wake up call for Chiz is useless.

  • prince_janus

    He doesn’t deserve to be a Senator of this republic.

  • May_Baxasfa

    there are just too many negative comments here about mon tulfo. why don’t people just give credit where credit is due and give people what they deserve? like mon: let him get the envelopes he’s been working for all his life, and let more women come and beat him black and blue–just enough to make him cry and crawl to the aid of his sisters

  • penoy2012

    ‘uang love team ni Chiz-Heart, gamitan lang ‘yan. Parang love team ni Penoy-Lacireda.

  • divictes

    “…to quit the bottle…” Sound advice! Now let’s drink to that…!

  • ynigooctaviano

    That is the reason why his former wife left him. He comes home to his family everyday in the wee hours of the morning drunk. He used to be the drinking buddy of the Estrada’s. Going out with different women even when he was married. Chiz Escudero is just using Heart Evangelista to show that he is a “macho”. Pathetic. You easily see it by his demeanors.

  • doublecross

    why wake-up call kung yon chix is patusok, eh kung patusok, tusokin na lang.

  • whyinthisworld

    I don’t consider myself as one vote for chiz. Maybe he is a good senator but not as president which seems to be competing with john lloyd, piolo pascual and coco martin on tv’s screen contrary to what the past senators like tolentino, salonga, antonino and more, to portray as respectable legislature. I see loreen legarda as a good actress so far away to compare with late senators san andress and madrigal gonzales. On LP line up, I choose 7 or 8 only, the rest from independent candidates. At this point in time, I suggest to let us select the best whom we think can bring new hope to our political life.

  • sanjuan683

    Di ko iboboto si Cheat, nauuna ang daldal na di naman totoo. Kaya pala usapan lasenggo. hehehehehehe

  • sanjuan683

    Pihikan sa manunugahin napili tuloy ng anak eh lasenggero pa. hehehehehe

  • igmat

    Maybe you have a personal vendetta against Chiz that’s why this story run more than a week already or else you are drunk too the running same story over and over again.

  • Guest

    Anak ng pusa, ahead pa si Trillanes kay Gringo samantalang hamak na mas
    productive sa Senado si Gringo sa kanya.

  • boybakal

    What….tapos na ang Mahal na Araw.
    Nabuhay na at umakyat sa Langit si Jesus….si Chiz tulog pa rin.
    Mahirap gisingin yan lasing na nagtutulog tulugan dahil Batugan.
    Enough of that Wake Up Call…useless.

  • Cue_Vas

    If alcoholism and bad manners ruin political careers, Erap would not have become president.
    For that, we have to thank the incredibly intelligent Filipino voters.

  • RobertVelez

    Lumalabas na ang baho ni Escudero,wag nang iboto yan! pqanay lang naman ang pagpapacute sa camera nyan e

  • karunungan32

    Chiz lasenggero kya pla walang ngagawa.sayang lang aNG binanayad namin sayo.pwe!

  • gigi2312

    hindi natin kailangan ang katulad nya sa senado,kaya hindi tayo umuunlad e

    They gripe that the senator is always drunk whenever he talks to them, a no-no for a conservative family with Chinese roots.

    Chinese, yes. But their “conservatism”, their deep regard for respect and tradition, should be compared to Catholicism, not Chinese.


    Mon Tulfo how much?
