Before Tonight With Boy Abunda started, the King of Talk gave his take on the rift between Morissette Amon and her father, Amay.
Amay expressed ill feelings towards his daughter on Twitter. He expressed his dismay over Morissette’s decision to suddenly stop the construction of their family home. Amay suspiciously said that someone might be influencing Morissette to take such drastic actions. Netizens have speculated that her boyfriend, Dave Lamar, might be the guy that Amay has been referring to in his tweets. But according to reports, Morissette has left almost P20 million with her family for the construction of their family home. Amay denied that he physically hurt Morissette in another statement and he also admitted his mistake of publicizing their family’s private matters online. But Amay emphasized that his words were borne out of frustration and heartbreak as a father.
Boy Abunda raised five points regarding the issue. One is the allegation of how Morissette changed after entering a relationship. Tito Boy said he doesn’t believe that Morissette has changed but reiterated that change is necessary for public figures rising into fame. Secondly, Tito Boy admitted that he doesn’t know the whole story on the family home construction, but he thought that there must be a reason on why Morissette decided to stop the construction. “Ang magkalaban ay pamilya at ang pag-ibig,” he emphasized.
Tito Boy then empathized with Morissette after her relationship with her boyfriend allegedly caused a rift in her family. “Being caught between family and love,” Tito Boy added that it’s impossible to choose in between people who you love dearly. He added, “Parang kalabisan para sa akin na sinasabing nasusulsulan ang isang tao.” Tito Boy firmly believed that we all our own decisions that will never change even if we’re in a relationship.
Fourthly, Tito Boy noted that he doesn’t believe that Morissette’s father has been physically hurting her amid the controversies. “We get this sense of what is true and what is not,” he said.
And lastly, he agreed that Amay should have not publicized their family problems online but instead they should talk privately as a family. “This is a problem that you guys can solve among yourselves,” he stressed. Tito Boy also applauded Morissette’s professionalism amid her personal problems with her family.
