Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Assistant Secretary Celine Pialago was on her last straw after “Mutya ng Masa” Doris Bigornia of TV Patrol reported and flashed on screen an allegedly incomplete sequence of text messages which she claimed caused confusion among motorists Saturday night, Dec. 19.

The text messages contained the announcement of Pialago about the re-opening of Dario bridge U-turn in slot Quezon City for emergency vehicles.

Pialago responded to Bigornia who labeled the text message as “misleading” on her TV report. She added that it is not the whole story.

A part of Pialago’s Facebook post read:

“Miss Doris Bigornia, I will really call your attention through my page since walang pakundangan ‘mong nilabas ang isang viber message na hindi kumpleto.”

“Kanina sa report mo sa TV Patrol. Ako ang ang nagsabe na bukas na ang Darrio bridge u turn, yes! Pero hindi mo nilabas sa TV ang buong laman ng GC, nakalagay bukas (y)un sa emergency vehicles…”

Celine went on to explain that she even called Quezon City Chief, Traffic Operations Division Dexter Cardenas to confirm the announcement.

“This time hindi kita papalagpasin. Kung meron akong pagsisisi ngayong 2020, yun ay yung pinatawad pa kita. Demonyo kang reporter ka.”

Pialago is clearly not pleased, she even went on to the comment section posting a snippet of the TV broadcast and solidifying her claim that she will not forgive Doris this time.

“Dapat hindi ko na pinatawad. Akala ko magbabago pa. Akala ko magbabago pa. Akala ko magtitino. Ayaw daw niya mawalan ng trabaho. Ibang klase.”

“Tama ba to? Tama ba ito guys? Maling pag rereport to.”

From everything that’s been said and done, it seems like it’s “friendship over” between the two personalities.
