Former “Glee” Star’s Mother Pleas For Daughter To “Change” Her Sexuality

Lovely-Charice-charice-pempengco-15438013-520-580Former Glee star Charice Pempengco is back in the news this week, not for that amazing voice that captivated us in her primetime debut last year, but for her mother’s not-so-amazing voice spewing anti-gay hate about her newly out daughter.

In a television interview with Boy Abunda on The Buzz last week, Pempengco told the world that she was a lesbian and dating fellow singer Alyssa Quijano, who you may know from the X-Factor.

At a press conference this week, Pempengco’s mother, Racquel, claims her daughter would never have been born if she herself had not been “convinced” to be straight. Racquel told reporters that she “used to be a lesbian” until her own mother convinced her to start a family.

Racquel has pleaded with her daughter to also “change” her sexuality, enlisting the help of the girl’s grandmother, who said: “Have some sympathy for your mom.”

In response, Charice said “My lola knows how much I love her, and how much I love my family.”

‘Atta girl!

    Speaking of wasted words: I don’t know if it’s a typo in the title, but “plea” is a noun, not a verb. The verb form is “plead”. It should read “Star’s mother pleads for daughter”.

    There’s never any excuse for poor grammar or erroneous word choices in “journalism”.

    I feel her pain… last summer my mom dragged me to her college reunion in the Philippines to meet all the “ex”-Tbirds (that’s what they called lesbians in her private school) from her class. Then I met all their husbands, yup lavender marriages all of them, none of them have kids. They were all a little too eager to know what San Francisco was like. But hey we are talking about a country that decriminalized homosexuality in 1997. But good for her, I bet she’ll have her Malaala Mo Kaya episode real soon, I am definitely going to watch that one.

    Given that Pempengco’s voice lifted her mother out of poverty, and given that her mother just threatened to retroactively abort her, I think Pempengco should take back the house she bought for her ungrateful, hateful mother.
