That is the the title
of one of the headlines on ABS-CBN news website. Still on the Desperate Housewives issue. Sigh… A Fil-Am group rejected ABC station’s offer of jobs for Filipinos to work in their network. Instead, the Philippine Anti-Defamation Coalition (which was just newly-formed) wants ABC to pay tribute to Filipino Health Workers through an episode of Desperate Housewives and they specifically want Teri Hatcher to say things about Filipino Health workers in the effect of honoring these workers. They don’t want the jobs, they want recognition! Huh?! Say that again??

In the news article, it also mentioned of the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA) filing a $500 million law suit for that racial slur!!

Please read the full story and tell me, please tell me that we are not OA (over-acting) and KSP (Kulang sa Pansin, attention seekers)! This is totally ridiculous and not to mention getting embarrassing for ordinary Filipinos like me in the US who are NOT involved at all in this case! We just want to work, not be ridiculed further because some of you want attention and honor in a fictional show and on the side, hope to cash in the dough! What will you do with 500 million dollars?! Give me a break!!

LATEST TV rating of Desperate Housewives here in the US as of 14 October 2007 after three weeks since Teri Hatcher spoken a line with the word “Philippines” on it:

Whoa! Almost 19 million viewers watched Desperate Housewives last Sunday! They’re still on the number 4 spot in the Top 20 rating show in America.
