Sex, lies and videotape

“You can’t possibly trust him. He’s perverted.”

—Ann Mullany (Andie McDowell) in Sex, Lies and Videotape

I WROTE this piece three days before the Senate hearing on the Hayden Kho-Katrina Halili sex video scandal. (Maaga ang deadline ba?) It's a further exposition on my thoughts on the issue. Click Something Like Life if you still can't get enough of it.

(Correction: As per my friends, in the sex video, Halili entered the bedroom still clothed, not naked as I had written in my column. Thanks for the correction guys.)

Have the statements of the parties in the Senate hearing changed any of your views on the matter? Which ones?

Not really. Their statements just prove how inane this entire issue is, and how badly we've been hoodwinked into watching this bad telenovela.

Some statements about the drug-taking are obviously false (e.g. Katrina not taking drugs is one of them).

If the Senators intend to pursue their investigation, they cannot be blind to the apparent responsibility of people like Vicki Belo in the issue.
