While at Somethin’ Fishy a while back, our Finance Specialist diverted the conversation to the Piolo Pascual-KC Concepcion break-up when we started asking about retirement fee, and she was successful. We talked about the hot issue to give ourselves a break from the corporate crap, and the table turned into a gossip haven. Everyone must have concluded the Piolo Pascual gay issue by assuming that he is indeed gay after watching the interview of KC Concepcion last Sunday and by dissecting the meanings behind her statements. Piolo Pascual must be under great pressure right now to break his silence, to apologize, to come out, or whatever it is that he needs to do to mitigate the damage. I think that coming out will not do good in his career or his relationship with KC. I think there’s no straight-acting gay ever survived Philippine showbiz which has totally embraced the backwards mentality of most of us Filipinos. Unlike in Hollywood where the likes of Cheyenne Jackson (Glee’s Dustin Goolsby) can play straight roles in mainstream television, if you are a gay actor in the Philippines, unless you are willing to be used occasionally to play straight characters for everyone’s amusement, you can only play gay roles. So, Piolo, if you’re not yet ready to leave the limelight, stay closeted.
