Tom Rodriguez Denies Losing His Temper On SetTom Rodriguez denied that he lost his temper and smashed things in the dressing room on the set of "Don't Lose The Money," which he hosts.
This was revealed in Lolit Solis' column in Pinoy Parazzi. Tom has also been the subject of blind items because of this alleged incident.
What happened was that he got sick because his blood pressure dropped to 160/100. He clarified, though, that he was able to finish taping two episodes of the game show even though he was sick.
One of the episodes is wherein Rey "PJ" Abellana, the father of his rumored girlfriend Carla Abellana, was a guest.
The doctors wanted to administer painkillers on him to make him sleep, but Tom rejected this and said he wanted to go back to the set. He wanted to finish taping the episodes because he knows just how much money goes into producing an episode.
He wanted to do it for the crew as well, he said. That was the same episode where Rey was a guest, and wherein he was allegedly grilled by the former matinee idol.
Reports said a "guest" triggered Tom's temper, so he went to the dressing room and smashed a lot of things. Afterwards, he went to his car and slammed the door hard. The guards had to report him because he drove fast to exit the GMA Network compound, and also because of the things he broke in the dressing room.
Tom was a part of "Pinoy Big Brother." He was forced evicted there because he turned violent and punched a wall after losing in a game.
His ex-girlfriend Princess Manzon also hinted that Tom may have a violent streak because she revealed in "I Do" that her "ex" was hot-tempered, so she was traumatized by him.
As for Tom, he continued to deny the reports. He also said he had a good first meeting with Rey.
