DJ Mo asks Lolit Solis 'Forbidden Questions' on radio show

As they say, there are no permanent enemies or friends in show business.

Just weeks after Magic 89.9's DJ Mo and celebrity manager-TV talk show host Lolit Solis engaged in word war publicly, the latter had guested in the former's controversial no holds-barred radio morning show titled "Forbidden Questions" last Nov. 8.

Lolit had earlier taken the cudgels for showbiz personalities who have been panned by celebrity guests in the show. These include actress Maui Taylor and VJ KC Montero who, respectively, said on air that singer Erik Santos and TV personality Raymond Gutierrez are probably gay.

During her turn, Lolit was brutally frank in answering all 40 questions thrown at her with topics ranging from who she thinks is gay in the entertainment industry, to how much she earns in a year.

"I think Andrew Wolfe is gay because he talks too much. It's his defense mechanism," she says in Filipino-English. "Piolo Pascual? When I see him sleeping with another man, that's when I'll say he's gay."

Asked to name a celebrity that she thinks fakes affection towards fans, Lolit names Nora Aunor. "Because she would deliberately make fans wait for her for up to eight hours" and Rosanna Roces ("Ask her production assistant," she quips).

Other question-and-answer rebuttals: Who has bad breath in show business? Director Chito Roño. How many percent of showbiz personalities has slept with dirty old men? Nearly half the industry. Who's the worst actor? Onemig Bondoc.

Even a friend of Lolit's was not spared. Deo Edrinal of ABS-CBN, who earlier had invited Lolit to his upcoming birthday party via text message, had, according to Lolit, been in romantic relationships with actors Diether Ocampo and Carlos Agassi.

Other entertainment personalities mentioned in the show are Maribeth Bichara, Kris Aquino, Angeli Valenciano, Janice de Belen, Susan Roces and Roderick Paulate.

Not all the questions were about other people. Some targeted Lolit herself who, consistent to form, did not bat an eyelash in responding.

"I earned about four million pesos last year -- and I say that because the BIR might be listening," she says. "Have I done scams not yet publicly known? I used to pilfer spoons and forks from Manila Hotel when I dine there. But then again, I only earned P4,000 in those days."

When was the last time she's had sex?

"At 38 years old. I lost my libido the following year. Did I have sex with Nur Misuari back in college? No, but had I known he would become who he is today, I probably would've done so everyday."

One of the most controversial entertainment writers ever, Lolit also disclosed that she has ghost writers for her columns in tabloids and that she not written a single column since 2004. Regarding the Manila Film Fest scam that made her notorious a few years back, she says that it would've worked out if Gretchen Barreto had not bungled up.

"Gretchen knew about the scam long before it took place so I was surprised that she acted surprised when it happened," says Lolit. "Is it easy to buy awards? What's easy is to influence people that decide who wins awards. All one has to do is be nice to them, befriend them."

"Forbidden Questions" generated a lot of phone-in comments and questions from listeners. One even suggested that they (DJ MO and Lolit) ought to do a radio talk show together being both "frank and articulate."

"Can you imagine DJ Mo and me in one show? We'd get in trouble everyday..." says Lolit.

The outspoken celebrity manager-talk show host gave fellow tabloid columnist-TV talk show host Cristy Fermin, who also had slammed DJ Mo's show weeks ago, advice in parting.

"Get to know (DJ) Mo. You'll like him."
