Pwede kitang Idikdik Pababa- Iwa Moto on Jodi Sta. Maria


After being painted as a "homewrecker," an indignant Iwa Moto has turned the tables on Jodi Sta. Maria, the ex-wife of her current boyfriend Pampi Lacson.


In an explosive interview with Cristy Fermin on "Paparazzi Showbiz Exposed" on Saturday, Iwa alleged that it was in fact Jodi who cheated on Pampi two years ago when the latter had an affair with Mickey Ablan, Iwa's boyfriend at that time. "Ang sakit po ng sinasabihan ako ng kabit, homewrecker, ang sakit po. Dahil alam ko sa sarili ko na hindi totoo ‘yun. At alam din ni Jodi kung ano ang totoo dahil siya naman talaga ang nag-umpisa ng lahat ng ito," Iwa said.

The former GMA talent said she confronted Jodi two years ago when she discovered the affair between her and Mickey. Although Mickey admitted it to Iwa, she said Jodi did not. "Yes, kinausap ko po siya. Suma total po, dinenay niya po sa akin. Hindi po siya umamin," she recalled. "Bale iniyakan ko po siya, nagmakaawa ako. Tinanong ko kung bakit niya nagawa sa akin iyon bilang idol ko siya. Kasi tinitingala ko po siya. Isa siya sa mga artistang sobrang hinahangaan ko dati.

"Ang sakit na 'yung hinahangaan mo, yun pa yung taong mananakit sa iyo. Tapos nung time na yun umamin na rin po sa akin si Mickey," she added. Iwa said she also called Pampi on the phone to tell her about the affair and she discovered that it wasn’t a secret to him, either. "Tinawagan ko si Pampi para pagsabihan niya ang asawa niya. Yun pala alam niya ang lahat," she revealed.

For further proof, Iwa cited Jodi's own silence about the reason why her marriage to Pampi ended in a separation. "Bakit mula noon hanggang ngayon hindi siya nagsasalita? Dahil alam niya sa sarili niya kung ano ang totoo. Mas masakit yun para sa kanya dahil alam niya yung totoo, niloloko niya yung sarili niya, e." Suma total, dito takot siyang magsalita dahil alam niya kapag pumitik ako, kapag nagalit ako, may pruweba ako at pwede ko pa siyang idikdik pababa," she said.

Iwa declared that she had nothing to do with the breakdown of the Jodi-Pampi marriage and that she and Pampi only became an item last month. "Ang suma total lang dito, gusto ko lang iklaro sa lahat na hindi ako ang naging dahilan kung bakit naghiwalay silang dalawa. Kung meron man silang problemang mag-asawa noon, sa kanila na yun. Pinauubaya ko na yun sa kanila kasi two years ago yun. Labas ako doon," she clarified.

Iwa told Cristy that her tell-all interview had Pampi's blessings. "Opo. All throughout hindi niya ako pinabayaan. Sa lahat nang ito lagi lang siyang nasa tabi ko. Nandiyan siya para bigyan ako ng advice. Ultimo mo dito sa interview na ito, tinatanong [ko siya] kung paano ko anuhin, kasi suma total, ang iniisip lang namin talaga, hindi na po si Jodi. "Wala na po kaming parehong pakialam kay Jodi kasi may sarili na siyang buhay. Sa pagkakaalam ko may boyfriend na siya. Doon na siya, masaya na siya, naka-move on na siya. "Masaya na kami ni Pampi, hayaan na lang kami. Ang ano lang dito, ang iniisip lang namin ‘yung bata (Thirdy, the son of Pampi and Jodi). Kasi ayoko lang dumating ‘yung panahon na isipin nung bata ako ang dahilan," Iwa explained.


Iwa also confessed that she has gotten very close to Thirdy. "Si Thirdy, para sa akin, hindi man lumabas sa akin ‘yan, mahal ko iyan bilang anak ko. Tuwing nasa poder po ni Pampi si Thirdy, kami po ang laging magkasama. Minsan nga po iniiwan na sa akin, like ako ang maghahatid sa Kumon, mga ganun. "Kasi napamahal na sa akin yung bata. Yun ang batang hinding-hindi mahirap mahalin dahil napakabuti, napakabait, napakalambing," she said.

Iwa ended with this message for Jodi: "Naaawa ako sayo kasi ang hirap ng dinadala mo. Yung kasinungalingan na binubuo mo sa utak mo, pinapaniwalaan mo. Masakit yun e, yung nakapanakit ka ng tao ni hindi mo magawang mag-sorry dahil dine-deny mo pati sa sarili mo. Alam mo yung totoo. Ngayon, sige, okay lang sa akin kung mag-react ka dito, wala akong pakialam. Pero mag-ingat ka kasi tandaan mo, nasa akin pa rin yung huling halakhak dahil ako ang may pruweba at ako ang inapakan mo dati," Iwa concluded.
