SHE NEEDED TO PEE, SAYS AC­TRESS MA. IS­ABEL LOPEZ

Sun.Star Cebu - - NEWS PLUS -

TV-movie star Maria Is­abel Lopez re­moved di­vider cones and drove on the Asean lane on Edsa in Manila, which was closed to or­di­nary com­muters like her, who’s not a del­e­gate to the Asean sum­mit in Manila.

Lopex, 55, had a com­pelling need to pee or poo or both, which­ever, as she cited only “na­ture’s calls” (plu­ral, hers).

It’s not yet known if the Metro Manila De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (MMDA) will de­sist from sus­pend­ing her li­cense and slap­ping a stiff fine. Be­fore she apol­o­gized, she proudly an­nounced how she had de­ceived MMDA traf­fic en­forcers into think­ing she was an of­fi­cial Asean del­e­gate. “If you can’t beat them, you join them,” she wrote on Face­book.

In the video clip she posted, her voice is heard, “Yeeeeeo, Asean here I come!” as part of the in­te­rior of the car is shown as the ve­hi­cle en­ters the Asean lane.
