Famous Pinoy Celebrities Urban Legends.

An urban legend, urban myth, urban tale, or contemporary legend is a form of modern folklore. It usually consists of fictional stories, often presented as true, with macabre or humorous elements, rooted in local popular culture. These legends can be used for entertainment purposes, as well as semi-serious explanations for random events such as disappearances and strange objects.

Urban legends are spread by any media, including newspapers, e-mail and social media. Some urban legends have passed through the years with only minor changes to suit regional variations. More recent legends tend to reflect modern circumstances, like the story of people ambushed and anesthetized, who awaken minus one kidney, which was supposedly surgically removed for transplantati

Here are some of the Famous Urban Legends of Local Celebrities:
Snake Charmer

First heard: Late ‘80s.
The lowdown: Robina Gokongwei has a twin, a giant serpent, whose secret lair is located beneath Robinson’s Galleria. When it’s time to feed the snake, a trapdoor opens in one of the Galleria’s fitting rooms, sending one unlucky shopper down through a maze of pipes and into the snake-pit. One day, Alice Dixon was in the wrong fitting room at the wrong time. Lucky for her, the serpent fell in love with her and decided to let her go.
Truth factor: As likely as Alice resurrecting her career.

Lightbulb Moment

First heard: Late '80s.
The lowdown: Richard Gomez is Jaime Zobel de Ayala’s paid lover. In the course of one intercourse, Zobel shoved a light-bulb up Goma’s rectum because he’s that kinky. Unfortunately, the glass broke and poor Goma had to be rushed to the emergency room.

Truth factor: C'mon. Zobel, with all his riches, can afford to buy a titanium dildo. You actually think he’d use some cheap store-bought bulb?

The Elevator Incident

First heard: Early-to-mid '00s.
The lowdown: Ting. Elevator door opens. In walks Gretchen Baretto, also known to her family as Satan, and her entourage of yayas and bodyguards. Another woman enters the elevator right after her. Deeming the woman unfit to be sharing the same space as her (and her Bulgari jewels), La Gretta proclaimed, “please tell this woman to get off my elevator”, to which the woman retorted, “please tell this woman to get off my building.” It turns out that the woman is Mrs. Yuchencho, a member of the clan who owns RCBC plaza. Exit la Gretta.

Truth factor: Smoke, fire, you know the cliche. Plus, she doesn’t really hide the fact that she’s an uber-*****.

Miss Hooker World

First heard: Mid '90s.
The lowdown: Ruffa Gutierrez may have lost the prized Miss World crown in 1993, but her exposure in that pageant helped turn her into a globe-trotting, world-class prostitute. With her mom as pimp, Ruffa snagged high-paying clients and eventually, settled down with Turkish mobster, Ylmaz Bektas.

Truth factor: You know there’s a little truth to it when the source is your distinguished law professor.

Pinay Winona Ryder

First heard: Mid '00s.
The lowdown: Pretty, fair and demure Lucy Torres is a shoplifting freak. Her thievery has escalated to the point that she can’t shop without being followed by an assistant who pays for every item she’s lifted. A security camera at Rustan’s captured Lucy doing the Winona hand-trick and the footage found its way to the desk of Karen Davila. The Kapamilya station agreed not to air the video in exchange for unknown favors from Goma.
Truth factor: There’s something quite off with Lucy. Maybe this is it?

Death in Dos Palmas

First heard: 2002
The lowdown: On March 29, 2002, at the Dos Palmas resort in Palawan, bedimpled matinee idol Rico Yan, now Saint Rico, died due to “cardiac arrest following a rupture of the pancreas.” Those in the know, however, claim that Rico overdosed with a cocktail of illegal drugs and that on the night of his death, Rico banged a hooker who was delivered and paid for by his dear friends, Dominic Ochoa and Jana Victoria.

Truth factor: Isn’t it a little strange that they didn’t release his autopsy report? Hmm.

Mysterious hanky

A handy hanky is what completes a classic Vilma Santos impersonation. Legend has it that the Star for all Seasons regularly use a hanky to cover one dirty secret: a bulging varicose vein in her left hand. Other creative storytellers believe that Ate Vi is "pasmadp" and she use the hanky before shaking the hands of her fans.

Bizarre D3ath

Julie Vega, she was one of the most promising child actress during the 70s and 80s having won two FAMAS for Best Child Actress during her career.

Julie Vega passed away at the age 16, her d3ath officially listed as cardiac arrest due to bronchopneumonia. But some said that Vega's death could be linked to the last film she made ( Lovingly Yours: The Movie)

Julie played a girl possessed by a demon. According to the story, engkantos of the place where the movie was filmed (old house in Mt. Minalmon, San Miguel Bulacan) either felt disrespected or fell in love with Julie, they afflicted her with an illness and took her spirit away.


Bongbong Marcos (real name Ferdinand "bongbong" Romualdez Marcos,Jr was born on September 13, 1957. He isna Filipino politician, and now he is a senator of the Philippines in the 15th Congress.
He is the only son and second child of former Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos.

At the time of former Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos, rumors about their projects and doings, and even their lives were wide spread in the Philippines. Some stories about them were distorted, as for example the San Juanico Bridge Legend, where Imelda Marcos ordered children's blood be mixed on the cement as sacrifice; the Manila Film Center Legend, where 26 or more construction workers were allegedly been buried in the building and not rescued or been dug up just to meet the completion date set by Imelda Marcos, and Bongbong Marcos Legend, for which this article is about.

According to rumors, Bongbong Marcos was already dead, and the person we can see sitting in the Senate is only a clone of "him." The legend spread in late 1970's and in early 1980's.


First version of the legend has it that Bongbong Marcos had a fisticuff with an Indian National classmate. In the said fight, he was accidentally been stabbed by his classmate to death. Strangely, there was no news about his body been returned in the Philippines.
Second version says, that he was killed in a road accident in Manila ( other stories suggest, it happened in London) when he was a teenager.

Third version has it that Bongbong Marcos was abducted by rebel armies from Mindanao, and he was killed there.

In continuation of the legend, Imelda Marcos convinced on of her nephew, who closely resembles his son, to undergo in a plastic surgery and pretend to be Bongbong Marcos in replace.


I personally believed that the Bongbong Marcos in the senate is the true Bongbong Marcos himself,indeed. The one who became the Vice-governor, Governor, and Congressman of Ilocos Norte is him. No doubt.

If he is really a clone, and he underwent a plastic surgery, in his age right now, those traces of wound and cuts in his face will be visibly seen. Take a look at him, the way he talks, the way he moves, and the natural resemblance of his face from his mother is an evidence.
