Talent manager and comedian Ogie Diaz finds humor in the various titles attributed to him by his followers, including ‘Patron Saint of Gossip’ and ‘Philippine’s Ultimate Showbiz Insider.’
These nicknames have emerged due to Diaz’s knack for accurately predicting celebrity breakups, despite facing criticism and accusations of spreading false information.
Recently, Diaz was proven right once again when several high-profile celebrity splits, including Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (KathNiel), Kim Chiu and Xian Lim (KimXi), Jericho Rosales and Kim Jones, and Miles Ocampo and Elijah Canlas, were confirmed.
In response to his newfound titles, Diaz humorously urged his fans not to idolize him as a patron saint, but to focus instead on the accuracy of the information provided in his ‘Ogie Diaz Showbiz Update’ segments, where he collaborates with Mama Loi and other co-hosts.
“Salamat po sa mga ‘sumasamba’ sa inyong lingkod. Hahaha! Wag n’yo po akong gawing patron ng mga marites.”
“Basta ang importante, tama po ang mga impormasyong inilalatag namin sa Ogie Diaz Showbiz Update Youtube Channel habang wala kaming pakialam sa bashers.”
“Nakakalungkot lang din yung break up nina Dominic at Bea, no? #Sadboi este #SadGay ako. Wa echos, gusto ko pa naman sila.”
Diaz expressed a tinge of sadness over the breakup of Bea Alonzo and Dominic Roque, acknowledging that their separation was indeed unfortunate, particularly during the love-filled month of February.
Despite the banter surrounding his reputation, Diaz remains steadfast in delivering reliable updates to his audience, emphasizing the importance of factual reporting amidst the flurry of rumors and speculations in showbiz circles.
