After salmon fiasco, ‘Manila House of Horrors’ under attack again for shooing away Honasan’s wife
It all boiled down to a pair of sandals her kid’s yaya was wearing.
Just weeks after the cringeworthy video of former Manila House president Ricco Ocampo shouting and cursing at a guest went viral, the posh members-only club in Bonifacio Global City found itself in hot water anew.
The wife of Senator Gringo Honasan, Jane, was the unfortunate victim of the private club’s discrimination and harassment.
Alya Honasan, the senator’s sister, took to Facebook to vent out her anger against Manila House which she claimed turned Jane away. Jane was only there to attend the bridal shower for Senator Koko Pimentel’s fiance.
The reason: the nanny of Mrs. Honasan’s kid was wearing sandals — which according to management was a violation of the club’s dress code policy and could “offend” other diners.
Jane was not even allowed to sit, leaving her red-faced and marching out of the establishment without even seeing her friends.
Alya threw intense shade at Manila House over the hostile treatment her sister-in-law received from this so-called elite club.
She also disclosed that the establishment eventually apologized for the unfortunate incident and even tried to send a cake which the Honasans declined.
“My family and I had a good laugh about it over dinner; really, we can live without such a stuck-up, entitled establishment. But I am pretty pissed that my sister-in-law was embarrassed, my five-year-old grandniece was puzzled that they didn’t make it to the “party,” and this bastion of hypocrisy and its minions feel they have the right to judge people, and are equating footwear with income tax return and your value as a human being,” she said.
“I really hope you close soon. Really.”
Top management has changed, but is this really the culture in this establishment? If it is, it sounds like the opposite of class.
