Stars weigh in on Erich’s flattering ‘dilemma’


Erich Gonzales

The billboard invitation of a certain CEO to have coffee with Erich Gonzales has elicited ambivalent reactions. I find it cute yet spooky. I asked some celebs how they would feel if they were in Erich’s shoes.

Many of them declined to comment. Perhaps it’s one situation they would not welcome, so they refuse to indulge in vicarious thrills—or chills. For those game enough to share their thoughts about the issue, here goes:

KRIS BERNAL: I’m a very appreciative person. I easily get moved by people who make an effort to get to know me better. I might say “yes” to the invitation, but I will ask someone to accompany me. Besides, it’s just a casual coffee date.

YAYO AGUILA: That would be flattering, but I would have someone look him up first before engaging myself in anything. These are crazy times, you know.

DIVINE LEE: There are things that should be done in private. Some grand gestures are sweet, but if you don’t know the person yet, something like this seems a bit creepy. I honestly don’t think it deserves an answer.

First of all, I don’t know him. How does he want me to politely reject his invitation—with another billboard? Through a press conference? It seems like he wants it to be a media spectacle, making it harder for a woman to “reject” his invitation with the fear of public judgment. I won’t validate that. It doesn’t seem right.

Guess List
Is it true that a TV personality has been knocked up by her married celebrity partner, that’s why she vanished from the limelight? Preggy, set, go (away)!

This love team is more of a “love scheme.” The guy is just coasting along for the sake of his and his perpetual partner’s fans. They are “on” only when the camera’s on. Word has it that he can no longer stand the prima donna ways of his partner, who is smitten with another actor. Starry-go-round!
