  8. I don’t know Gretchen personally, but having watched various “Idol competitions” throughout the world, making it to top 24 is not an easy task.

    Let us not put political connotations on Gretchen’s Idol journey. Instead, we should throw our full support for her success as like any other “idol” winners in other countries; they become excellent ambassadors of good will.

    I already consider making it to the top 24 as a victory on which Gretchen can build on.

    Let us spare Gretchen of the dirty side of politics and instead let us unite to promote Biliran through Gretchen.

    Gretchen, all the best. Please don’t forget to mention Biliran Province on every available opportunity. You have the voice, the look and the confidence. A winning combination.

    Congratulations for making it to the top 24 and I wish you all the best in the coming heats. I wish to see you in the top 12.

  9. I agree with you Aquarius..

    Guys, Let us support Gretchen Espina… Its our pride..

    To gretchen,

    God Bless

Pasalamat ka pa nga may talent si Gretchen at karamihan sa pamilya nila ay may mga talent rin na pwede ring maipagmalaki in one way or another.. Ikaw ano ba ang na-incontribute mo para makilala ang biliran at bilang isang biliranon… Para kang amo mo walang ginawa kundi manira sa kapwa tao ndi nakukuntento sa buhay…kayo ang dapat tawagin na looser… dahil wala kayong mga silbi puro kayabangan ang nalalaman… kaya Go Gretchen…. ignore those criticisms….

  18. This is a repost. Succesful attempts had been made to obliterate this post as well as related ones in various sites under the topics: Spurious/Adulterous Child (Daughter – Geraldine Espina) of Governor Roger Espina (Child with Another Woman – Not Cecil), Ombudsman Clears Espinas (by Jack Gadaingan) but this is the only site that has the courage and is honest enough to retrieve and retain the post in its blogs. However, some related posts could not anymore be retrieved when this site was hacked.

    Congratulations to this site and continue your impartiality and transparency.

    More power to you Marlon.

    I met a girl recently at Robinson’s Place, Manila, who claims to be the daughter of the incumbent Governor of Biliran Province, Rogelio Espina. According to her story, she is Geraldine Espina, the youngest daughter of the governor with another woman (not tita Cecil as she narrates – who is the wife of the governor). According to Geraldine (as she claims), she studied at the Cathedral School of La Naval. She had her own room at the governor’s house with her pictures and musical instruments and loves to jet-ski. However, she was the black sheep in the house so she often had arguments with her tita Cecil and kuya GerryVic (the governor’s eldest son). She was also fed up with her life in Biliran, as it was always under public scrutiny, so she left Biliran for Manila, at a young age (similar to the story of the prodigal child) and worked in Manila. Due to disagreements with her employer, she left her first job and became self-employed. Her trade partner became her boyfriend, so they got married and lived together until she got pregnant and delivered a baby boy (whom she claims looks very much like the governor). According to Geraldine, it was even GerryVic who helped her and paid for her hospital bills, when she delivered her baby at the San Juan De Dios Hospital at Pasay City. Due to their financial situation, her husband was forced to engage in restricted money-making activity but was caught by the police and is currently serving a sentence for the offense. Geraldine left her child with her in-laws and hooked-up with another trade partner, who, however, relied on her abilities for ‘business’ survival. She thus severed her ties with her second trade partner and affiliated with another trade partner in the Malate, Manila area and has been plying her trade for quite some time now. Geraldine calls former Congressman Gerry Espina, Sr. (now Mayor of Naval, Biliran) as lolo and whom she described as strict, authoritarian but loving. She claims that her father has a house at Multinational Village in Paranaque. According to Geraldine, she is close to GerryVic and Gretchen. GerryVic took up law. Her father (the governor) has a twin brother who is the Mayor of Kawayan. She also disclosed that her tita Cecil has a medical clinic in Biliran. According to Geraldine, she is 22 years old.

    Thanks.

    Geraldine Espina (the person whom I met recently at Robinson’s Place, Manila and who claims to be governor Rogelio Espina’s daughter) is a spitting image and semblance of Gretchen Stephanie Espina – the eyes, the hair and other physical features are very identical based on the photos that I saw on the internet (of Gretchen Espina) on the following sites: http://www.philippineidol.com/contestants_goldpassers4.html, http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=zh-CN&u=http://www.stu.edu.cn/gb/news/shownews.aspx%3Fid%3Dcb82f01c-f711-4d0a-8920-adf51bd67b60&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=9&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3DGretchen%2BStephanie%2BEspina%26start%3D30%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN, http://ef.stu.edu.cn/ef2006/layer/sing.htm, http://ef.stu.edu.cn/ef2006/htm/singing.htm

    If the claim of Geraldine Espina is true and she is a real biological daughter of Governor Rogelio Espina, especially if the Espinas still have at least an ounce of concern and love for one of their own, they should rescue Geraldine from her current situation as her health is failing fast due to her chosen profession and trade.
