The wife of Camarines Norte Governor Edgardo “Egay” Tallado revealed that her husband was mad at her after a supposed photo scandal showing the governor’s alleged mistress surfaced online.
Mrs. Josefina “Josie” Tallado said that she hid with her friend Darlene Francisco after her husband accused her and her friend, Darlene Francisco, as the people who leaked the photo.
Josie and Darlene were reported missing since Friday, October 17, surprisingly showed up on Abs-Cbn‘s morning news show, Umagang Kay Ganda (UKG) on Wednesday, October 22.
“Kaya nga po ako nandito para linawin na hindi po ako nawawala o hindi po ako na-kidnap. Ang totoo pong pangyayari ay kusa po akong umalis o tumakas ako sa bahay namin kasi dahil alam kong hindi na ako safe sa sarili kong tahanan,” she said.
“Miyerkules ng kinumpronta niya (governor) ako. May baril po akong nakita sa likuran nya. Iyun na po yung alam kong anytime baka patayin niya ako o dahil sa bugso ng kanyang galit, hindi natin masasabi kung ano ang pwedeng mangyari.”
Mrs. Tallado revealed that she had known her husband Governor Egay had been having an affair with the said mistress for two years. Atty. Kapunan, legal counsel of Josie, added that the photo was very compromising because it showed the woman masturbating.
Atty. Lorna Kapunan said the governor destroyed his wife’s laptop using the gun.
