MANILA, Philippines (4th UPDATE) -- Talent manager Annabelle Rama on Saturday lambasted her daughter Ruffa Gutierrez's showbiz talk show "Paparrazzi" for allegedly maligning her daughter with a "lewd" interview segment.

She said the program disrespected Gutierrez when her co-hosts asked her questions on sensitive topics about her previous relationships.
"Di ba naman mga tanga, ang daming pambatang commercials, puro k**** ang topic? Stupid! idiot!" Rama said on micro-blogging site Twitter.
The outspoken Rama did not mince any words in criticizing the show that airs on TV5.
She claimed that the "homosexual" writers of the show are to blame for the supposedly vulgar bent of its stories.
"Bitayin patiwarik ang mga bwisit at bastos na b**** sa paparazzi! Mga bwisit kayo! Tanggalin at palitan na ang mga bobo na yan!" she said.
"Naubusan na ba kayo ng ideas? Dapat yang mga m**** na b**** writers ng Paparazzi ilagay sa 2am na slot, di sa tanghali! Kaya di nagre-rate ang show kasi puro k**** at k****! Tanghaling tapat puro t*** ang topic!
"Akala nila natutuwa ang mga viewers sa mga kabastusan nila? Hoy mga b**** writers ng Paparazzi magsilayas na kayo dyan!"
Rama said the writers behind the show should be fired, as the program's content is offensive and inappropriate for young viewers, especially for its time slot.
"Dapat tanggalin na yang mga bobong writers ng Paparazzi! Walang mga utak, mga abnormal, mga maniac! May mga batang nanunood sa inyo, katulad ng mga apo ko! Inaabangan nila ang bday celebration ng mommy nila!" she said.
During the Saturday episode of the show, Gutierrez's co-hosts -- Cristy Fermin, Zoren Legaspi, Mariel Rodriguez and Jeffrey "Mr. Fu" Espiritu -- took turns in whispering questions to the former beauty queen, such that viewers would not hear what had been asked.
All 4 questions required Gutierrez to pick among 3 options for an answer -- the names of her former boyfriends, Aga Muhlach, Legaspi, and Robin Padilla.
Gutierrez expressed discomfort, asking why the questions were of such nature. She also cautioned that her parents were watching, and even greeted them on air.
One of the questions partly heard on air was "Who has the biggest...?"
"Alam mo, you're so gross. I am not answering that. Wala akong alam diyan. Next question. Hindi ko sasagutin 'yan," Gutierrez said.
The former beauty queen then stood up and thanked her supporters, preventing more questions from being asked.
Call for investigation
Rama has urged the management of TV5 to investigate the issue.
"Calling the attention of MVP, Atty Rey Espinosa & Bobby Barrero: Tama ba itong questions ng mga writers ng Paparazzi on national tv, w their 11:30am to 12:30noon time slot?" she asked.
"Pls review the tape of that segment on that show. Super negative. I already talked to @percinotpercy re the show. Sana maimbestigahan ang mga writers and everyone who's behind all this. Thank you," she said.
Rama also said Gutierrez's children were watching when their mother were asked the alleged "lewd" questions.
"Lunch time, kumakain ang pamilya ko with my 7 & 8 year old na mga apo na nanunood sa mommy nila para bastusin lang pala!" she said.
"These are the questions: 'Sino kila Aga, JL, Robin ang pinaka malaki ang tit*?' | 'Sino kila Zoren, Aga, Robin ang magaling sa kama?'" she added.
Moments after the airing of the show, Gutierrez announced on Twitter that she has quit "Paparazzi."
In a brief statement posted on its news website, TV5 said it was “seriously concerned” about what transpired during the show.
The station also "vowed to launch an investigation into the matter."
