'BUSINESS COLLAPSE' FEARED
Dr. Vicki Belo files P10-M
libel suit vs Rosanna Roces

DR. Vicki Belo's chain of beauty clinics has been going through "difficulties" and clients have been questioning her qualifications, thanks to what she called the libelous remarks of her former friend and business partner, actress and TV host Rosanna Roces.

This "might trigger the collapse" of her business, Belo admitted in an affidavit of complaint she submitted when she filed a 10-million-peso libel lawsuit against Roces on Monday with the Makati prosecutor's office.



Belo, through her lawyer Raymond Fortun, said Roces fired off a "barrage of vilifying remarks" against her in two interviews on the show biz talk show "The Buzz" on ABS-CBN.

Belo said that because of Roces' "defamatory utterances," clients have been questioning her "professional qualifications," and the Belo Medical Group "now encounters difficulty in its operations."

"This only shows the extent of damage (Roces) caused to my name and reputation," Belo said in her affidavit of complaint.

Licensed doctor

Belo's chain has five branches in Quezon City, Ortigas Center in Pasig, Alabang in Muntinlupa and Greenhills in San Juan.

According to her affidavit, Belo is a licensed doctor. She graduated from the University of Santo Tomas College of Medicine in May 1985. She was an intern at the Makati Medical Center in 1986, passed the medical board examination in 1987 and had her residency training in dermatology also at the Makati Medical Center in 1988.

She went to Thailand to specialize on tropical diseases for one year and graduated in May 1990, the affidavit said. She then went to Europe at least three times for further studies, it added.

Belo said Roces, apparently referring to her, "advised women not to go to a doctor who is . . . not authorized to perform liposuction."

'Aerobic instructor'

In an interview on "The Buzz" on April 11, Roces accused Belo of performing a botched liposuction procedure on her.

"Maraming 'di maayos," Roces had told "The Buzz" reporter Cristy Fermin. "'Yung gumawa noong una sa akin, medyo palpak. Maraming bukol-bukol, maraming bakat ng cannula (a metal tube inserted into the body to draw off fluid or fat during liposuction), so 'yun 'yung ipapaayos ko kay Doc (Manuel Calayan) ngayon."

Shortly after the interview, Roces had another operation, this time performed by Calayan.

In the same interview, Roces also referred to Belo as an aerobic instructor and accused her of using her "Before" and "After" photos in an advertisement in the Philippine Daily Inquirer without her permission.

In another interview on "The Buzz" on April 25, Roces disproved Belo's earlier claim that the doctor was not connected with Forever Flawless Skin and Body Center, a chain of skin care centers conceived for the low-end market.

'A hoax'

"Hindi, hindi totoong hindi kanya 'yung Flawless, okay," Roces had told Fermin. "Naglagay siya ng dummy diyan . . . dahil gusto niya raw makuha ang bakya na crowd. Gusto niyang tapatan ang Let's Face It."

In her affidavit, Belo said Roces described her as someone who is "as plastic as the tools I use and that I am a total liar."

"She pictured me as a hoax and a mere aerobics instructor incompetent to conduct cosmetic procedures," Belo added.

Pregnancy issue

In a statement e-mailed to Inquirer Entertainment, Roces said, "I still believe that justice will prevail. Ako na nga ang naagrabyado hindi lang sa pera. Pati na rin pagkatao ko ay nilait nila. At mas masahol pa ay idinamay nila ang anak ko. Iyan ang hindi ko na palalampasin."

Roces was apparently referring to the rumor that her 15-year-old daughter Grace was pregnant. Roces' manager and "Startalk" co-host Lolit Solis has admitted that she told Belo that Roces was afraid her daughter was pregnant.

Roces has denied that Grace is pregnant.

"Menor de edad ang anak ko at nasa saligang batas na katungkulan nating lahat na pangalagaan ang mga bata," Roces said in her e-mail. "Bahala na ang korte na magpataw ng parusa sa kanila."
