Amid the hullabaloos on Ceasar Montano‘s viral birthday greeting video, rumors circulated that the woman in the background is his new partner. It was also said that he also has three kids with the woman and was spotted with her last week.
The woman is said to be a certain Socorro “Kath” Angeles. Montano and Angeles were last spotted at a party to celebrate the birthday and baptism of their ‘rumored’ youngest daughter.
The photo was taken by Pep.ph from the Facebook page of Commission on Higher Education commissioner Ronald Adamat who has now taken down the post; uploaded on October 28, Sunday.
If rumors are true, it would mean that Montano now has nine kids in total and six of them with previous partners.
Birthday Video Greeting ala-Cesar Montano
Posted by LionhearTV on Wednesday, October 31, 2018
A video of Montano was uploaded by a certain Rolando Olano where the actor was seen greeting his friend. However, the spotlight was directed to another subject as a naked woman who walked into the actor-public servant’s background.
Montano has yet to react on the viral clip.
Celebrity couple Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano have officially separated five years ago but it was only recently that their annulment was granted by the courts.
Her marriage to the actor was said to be real but also “dark and chaotic” according to a report by Pep.ph.
“I know, I know that he really loved me, alam ko yun.
“He will not marry me if he does not love me – and I love him very much, really I fell for him.
“I really loved him especially when I watched him as Jose Rizal.”
But the union turned out far from the fairytale ending she was looking forward to as their 2000 wedding nearly didn’t happen.
“I was calling off the wedding. I called Tita Norma Japitana, and I said, ‘The wedding is off! Ayoko na, ayoko na!’
“Kasi meron siyang nasabi sa akin–hindi maganda. Basta ang baboy, ang baboy. Hindi maganda, hindi talaga kaaya-aya.
“I called off the wedding.”
But Montano apparently convinced her to pus through with the wedding; however, as soon as their honeymoon happened, his temper resurfaced again.
“Masakit man aminin, pero honeymoon pa lang, tinapon niya yung wedding ring namin sa ano, nung nag-Carribean cruise kami.”
She said that her then husband wanted her to admit that she had slept with not just one of her leading men in her past movies, but all of them.
Cruz even admitted that there was a lot of outbursts throughout their marriage that it outnumbers the times that her husband was calm.
“Yun nga, tinapon niya yung wedding ring namin… Siguro, mas marami yung times na ganun siya, kesa yung kalmado siya.
“And I was thinking na, maybe, it was just yung pagpapalaki sa kanya, upbringing niya.
“Baka talaga medyo may temper lang. Yun yung iniisip ko–may temper lang.
“‘Tapos, lagi sa ‘kin sinasabi ng ibang tao na, ‘Maybe you just have to prove your worth as a person.’ Ganun na lang lagi.
“That’s what I did. Napasubo na ako, kasal na ako–anong gagawin ko?”
The actress also added that Montano even told her that she’s just a bold star.
“I would leave, then babalik ako, ganun. Parang, kasi, sinasabi niya bold star lang naman ako, wala nang kukuha sa ‘kin… Kung before po makikita niyo ako, di ba lagi lang akong nakatungo? Parang hiyang-hiya ako sa sarili ko, kasi sarili kong asawa ganun yung tingin sa ‘kin–what more yung ibang tao? Yun po iniisip ko,”
In 2013, the year Cruz officially filed for annulment, Montano allegedly had an affair with his movie co-star Krista Miller.
When asked for a message to her ex-husband, Cruz said “Kung meron mang pinagpapasalamat sa kaniya—lumakas ako, naging matapang, natuto akong lumaban, hindi ko nagagawa yun noon! At, siyempre, binigyan niya ako ng tatlong mga anak.”
Cruz is currently in a relationship with businessman Macky Mathay.
For some Filipinos, fraternities and sororities mean something messy or aggressive, violent even.
There have been cases wherein the members of such groups cause trouble that ends up in the news. But being a part of the brotherhood/sisterhood doesn’t mean you’re a violent, cocky, aggressive person altogether. Not for some, atleast.
Here are some celebrities who are proud members of fraternities/sororities.
Baron is a member of the fraternity Alpha Kappa Rho.
The ‘It’s Showtime’ host is a member of the fraternity Tau Gamma Phi.
Charee is a member of Tau Gamma Sigma.
Just like Vhong, JC is a member of Tau Gamma Phi.
Luis is also a member of Tau Gamma Phi.
Sam is also a member Alpha Kappa Rho, just like Barron.
Oyo Boy Sotto
During his younger days, Oyo Boy became a member of Tau Gamma Phi.
Angeline is a member of Tau Gamma Sigma. Charee is her sorority sister.
Vandolph is a part of Triskelions’ Grand Fraternity or Tau Gamma Phi.
The actor is a member of Tau Gamma Phi.
Cesar is a member of skeptron, which is also a part of Alpha Kappa Rho.
JM De Guzman
Just like Vhong, JM is a part of Tau Gamma Phi.

Just like Cesar, Arniel is a member of the Alpha Kappa Rho.

Journalist Teddy Boy Locsin Jr. made comments on Cesar Montano‘s ‘excessive and extravagant’ traveling expenses.
Locsin sarcastically threw shades at the government by tagging the expenditures of officials as ‘best thing’ in the current administration. According to him, it is the ability of the government to restrain the travel expenses, which is in contrast to Montano’s recent controversy.
He further questioned that when it comes to foreign affairs, the only ones that should be allowed to travel are the secretaries.
One of the best things in this admin is the curtailment of traveling at official expense; especially by officials from the capital to posts abroad. There is email & there are ambassadors. What they are out there for? In foreign affairs, only the secretary should travel.
The Commission of Audit recently revealed in its 2017 report that the Tourism Promotions Board‘s (TPB) Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Deputy for International Promotions—Cesar Montano has traveled 14 times that year. This equals to 91 days spent out of the country, which was almost 25% of the year.
Adding to this, it is written that Montano has spent Php2.276 million for himself alone while he traveled to Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America.
Contrary to executive orders which require officials to travel on economy class only, unless authorized by the President, he flew to Russia, Canada, and United states on business class. This totaled to Php594,000 worth of tickets.
Aside from spending for himself, he also paid for his private secretary and executive assistant’s travel expenses whom he brought along 11 out of his 14 trips abroad. This amounted to another Php2.995 million worth of payments.
Montano resigned in May after getting involved in the controversy of the ‘Buhay Carinderia Project’ which acquired P80 Million from the agency in less than a month.
MANILA, Philippines. Following the face-off between Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s legal counsel Atty. Salvador Panelo at Bank of the Philippines Islands (BPI) Julia Vargas branch on Monday, May 2, several celebrities have decided to speak up on the issue of the presidential aspirant’s alleged hidden wealth.
Robin Padilla, a vocal supporter of the tough-talking mayor from Davao City, showed up at the face-off in protest of the “political hack job” against Duterte. In his interview with the media, Padilla said he would withdraw all his money from BPI.
“Dapat si Sen. Trillanes, sinasabi niyang isang senador, hindi niya dapat sinasabi na walang rule of law… Magwiwithdraw muna ako,” Padilla said.
(Sen. Trillanes, who says he is a senator, shouldn’t say that there is no rule of law. I will withdraw my money first.)
Other celebrities like Richard Poon, Cesar Montano, Arnell Ignacio, Aiza Seguerra, Liza Diño, and Mocha Uson also took to social media to defend the PDP-Laban standard bearer.
Singer Richard Poon wrote on his Facebook account:
“Naiintindihan ko siya kung kailangan niyang magbayad ng bills niya every month, kaya niya ginagawa ‘yan para pagkakitaan,” Montano said.
(I understand that he needs to pay the bills every month, that’s why he’s doing this to make money.)
TV host and comedian Arnell Ignacio also came to Duterte’s defense and shared two videos of himself standing outside a BPI branch.
“Anyway, maganda naman yung sinasabi mo na meron kang mga imbestigasyon, pero sana mag-issue ka ng affidavit para legal ang lahat,” Ignacio addressed Trillanes.
( It’s good that you said that you are conducting investigations but I hope you would issue an affidavit to legalize everything.
Singer Aiza Seguerra and entertainer Mocha Uson posted a photo of Duterte’s statement against Trillanes on their respective Instagram accounts.

In a lengthy Facebook post, Seguerra’s wife Liza Diño slammed Trillanes for accusing Duterte of having undeclared millions in his SALN.
But the frontrunner in presidential surveys didn’t escape criticisms from celebrities supporting other candidates.
In his Twitter post, Jim Paredes urged his followers to “switch to Mar”.
Duterte is a fraud. 41 houses. Billions in accounts. Liar. Collecting campaign funds from the poor. SWITCH TO MAR.
