Abegail Rait opened up about her short-lived relationship with the late Francis Magalona during an episode of “Pinoy Pawnstar,” a vlog by content creator Jayson Luzadas, also known as “Boss Toyo,” who collects memorabilia from local and foreign pop icons. She sold for half a million pesos an old jersey supposedly left by the late music icon, as well as a letter and a picture of them together, with a message at the back.

Her disclosure likewise revealed that she and the Master Rapper had a 15-year-old love child which they named Gaile Francesca, who took after her father in looks and, apparently, in her talent in music.

Rait revealed her relationship with Magalona and their love child in an episode of “Pinoy Pawnstars” last Oct. 17. In the vlog, she and Francesca went to the shop of Jayson Luzadas, also known as “Boss Toyo,” the series owner, to sell Magalona’ jersey along with his letter and their photo together.

In the vlog, she recounted how the two of them met during his “Eat Bulaga” days; of carrying their child while he was on a tour; and of giving birth to their daughter who they named after themselves. She turned emotional as she recalled the time when Magalona was diagnosed with leukemia and they could not even come to his side.

“Sobrang gumuho ‘yung mundo ko nung time na ‘yon kasi OK kami; ang dami naming plano tapos bigla siyang nagkasakit. Ang pinakamahirap na part is ‘yung situation ko, ‘yung hindi ka pwede lumabas. For 15 years, nanahimik ako. I didn’t say anything about me and my daughter,” she claimed, knowing that people would “judge” them for their choices.


However, for the sake of her daughter, Rait said that circumstances compelled them to come out in public. “We exist. What we had is real,” she said.

Luzadas then asked Francesca, “Hindi ka ba mag-aartista?” to which Rait replied, “Soon, lalabas siya. [Music din].”

At the time of their supposed relationship, Magalona was believed happily married to the former Pia Arroyo, who bore him six children. Pia and their children has yet to comment on Rait’s revelations, though their son Frank liked a sympathetic post on X (formerly Twitter), while daughter Maxene made cryptic post on Instagram.

‘Homewrecker, mistress’

Frank appeared to share the same sentiment as a netizen who criticized the late rapper’s alleged secret lover, Abegail Rait, for making their affair public.

While the Magalona family has yet to publicly comment on this revelation, Frank intrigued netizens after he liked a post from X (formerly Twitter) user @JoselKnow who called Rait a “homewrecker” and “mistress.”

“I find it weird watching the video of ‘Pinoy Pawnstar’ where a homewrecker revealed [her] affair with Francis M., saying, ’15 years akong nanahimik,’” the netizen’s post read. “Of course, you will. You’re a mistress. Duh.”

The X user continued, “And people looking at this woman with sympathy and romanticizing their affair, but all I thought about in that moment was the housewife who fought beside her cheating husband during those years of battling with cancer, all the while trying to hold her family together.”

Some netizens also gave their two cents on the matter, airing similar sentiments with that of user @JoselKnow. Meanwhile, there were others who seemingly came to the defense of Francis and his alleged love child Francesca.

On the other hand, certain netizens complimented Francesca who apparently got Francis’ talent in rapping, and commended “Pinoy Pawnstars” owner “Boss Toyo” for revealing Rait’s “untold story.”

Meanwhile, “EAT” hosts turned emotional after Jimmy Santos made a surprise visit to the noontime show last Oct. 14 and reunited with the former “Eat Bulaga” mainstays.

Santos, also a former “Eat Bulaga” mainstay, was initially introduced as the driver of Papa Ethan — one of the characters of the show’s skit portrayed by Wally Bayola—who would bring a cake for Joey de Leon’s birthday.

De Leon, Vic Sotto, Tito Sotto, Bayola, Paolo Ballesteros, Allan K., Miles Ocampo, Atasha Muhlach, Ryzza Mae Dizon and Carren Eistrup were then surprised when Santos joined the hosts on the stage.

“Happy birthday! Alam mo namang hindi kita makalimutan e,” Santos told de Leon while handing the cake to the latter. “Nakatambay lang ako e, [tapos] naimbitahan akong mag-drive. Okay din. I’d like to greet you a happy, happy, happy birthday. Whatever happens in this country, I still love you all three times a day,” he continued.

Vic, Ballesteros, Allan K., Bayola and Dizon teared up as Santos gave his message to the viewers and turned to hug De Leon.

“Especially those people surrounding [the] vicinity, I miss you all. Thank you very much. Still, ‘Eat Bulaga’ is here to stay,” Santos said.

Vic immediately corrected Santos and said, “Mali, ‘EAT’! Wala kang kupas.”

Santos, whose last appearance in the original “Eat Bulaga” was in 2021, has been giving updates on his life in Canada, although it’s unknown if he already settled there for good.

Mark Leviste expressed his admiration and love for Kris Aquino, which was uploaded in a vlog by entertainment writer Aster Amoyo last Oct. 13.

“The last time I checked, I left my heart in America… Sa aking pagkaalala, ibinigay at ipinaubaya ko ang aking puso sa taong mahal ko,” he said, although he didn’t immediately mention Aquino, who is now based in California for medical treatments.

Amoyo went on to ask the politician if he had plans of proposing marriage to “that person,” to which Leviste quipped, “Tita Aster, I’ll tell you off-air. You’re gonna get me into trouble.”

Leviste then opted to keep private how much he loves “this person in America” but he underscored, “I think I cannot deny that my expression and even my joy says it all. So, I’m proud of where I am. I’m proud of my love. I’m proud of what we have. As far as I’m concerned, walang nagbago sa akin. Mahal ko siya,” he continued.

Leviste further spoke about how he only has the “genuine kind of love” for Aquino and that he doesn’t intend to please those who “think negatively, wrongly about [his] intentions” to her.

“With all honesty, walang biro, walang bola—I’m a super admirer of Kris Aquino. She knows that and I’m very proud of it,” he told Amoyo. “Kris is an amazing, amazing person, beautiful inside and out — super beautiful. I’m lucky; I’m very fortunate that she’s part of my life. I’ve seen a different kind of Kris and I feel very blessed to be given the opportunity to witness all of this.”

Aquino and Leviste appeared to have reconciled after they were seen together with “It’s Showtime” host Kim Chiu in California earlier this month.
