And the Excitement Continues!

The tell-all tale of Brian Gorrell is getting pretty exciting with the alleged "Gucci Gang" fighting back in their own "turfs". Tim Yap wrote a column in response to Brian's juicy blogs, and io heard, so did Celine Lopez (but many are discouraging me from reading it as it is pretty long a boring, according to some).

I really feel sorry for Brian. He is a sick man who had his heart and his bank book broken. True or not, the allegations versus Mr. Montano should be answered by him directly. If the allegations of Brian are true, then DJ should pay up.

You should read the comments of pinoys here and abroad against Tim Yap and the Gucci gang. I mean, these are supposed to be "respectable" members of society, not the coke-snorting group depicted in the now-popular blog of Brian.

The blog now has copies of receipts sent by Brian (or members of his family) to DJ via western Union. True, unless these are taken to court, they are inadmissible, but let's face it. The court of public opinion is a far better venue for Brian that any Philippine Court ever will be.

Many are now obsessed with the blog, which has all the elements of a pinoy telenovela: love, heartache, deceit, addiction, and more, and everyone is awaiting Brian's next juicy installment.

The Lifestyles of the Obscenely Rich and Famous (the High-Society Scandal of the year!)

People who go online are all agog about the latest and juiciest scandal to rock the Metro! The DJ Montano Scandal is hitting the blog community like a tsunami, with big-name personalities being dragged into shocking revelations.

The controversial blog,, authored by Brian Gorell, has received a million hits, according to one blogger's estimate. Although the claims are primarily unsubstantiated, the promise of the blogger to reveal all documents and even Western Union receipts to back his claim is throwing people into a frenzy.

That ever popular and ultra-controversial venue of yuppie high society, Embassy, has been dragged into the fray with accusations of cocaine snorting inside Embassy itself. Of course, this is merely a one-sided accusation, but tsizmosos are already having a field day.

With so many high-society people mentione din the very revealing blog (i think the author calls them the Gucci Gang), more and more people will be attracted to his site.

I am not saying everything written there is gospel truth, but i have to admit it makes for one intersting, and provocative read.
