Pay for Play Punishment

Karma can indeed be swift and severe. Soccer Star Ronaldo's embarrassing predicament may be the subject of endless ridicule and a possible break-up with his girlfriend. The 3-time FIFA World footballer is being victimized by three male cross dressing prostitutes when one of them, Andrea Albertine, took his vehicle documents and demanded US$30,000 - all because the AC Milan striker threatened to hit him inside the hotel room upon discovering he was a transvestite. Ronaldo's "brokeback" moment may be the butt (pun intended) of jokes for his failure to determine the genders of his "acquired assets".

He dropped off his girlfriend beforehand and proceeded to pick up three prostitutes to"amuse himself", according to his own statement. There was indecent haste in dropping off his girlfriend, or in picking up the "women" or both; perhaps because of his immediate need to satisfy his amusement. The tendency of certain celebrities to demand immediate gratification leads to errors in judgment. The case of Hugh Grant comes to mind. But for one who has traveled the world and met so many people, how
he could mis-identify the transvestites shows poor judgment indeed.

Aside from the potential flood of jokes and cartoons from this transvestite caper, the fact that he patronizes prostitutes which could tarnish his image and lose endorsements, and the embarrassment he has inflicted on his girlfriend; Karmic retribution for his betrayal may not be over yet. Disease may lurk around the corner. Unfaithfulness does not pay, it is actually very costly.

adequate justice for his deeds Durano ...
surely his girlfriend will not have him back either !!

Erica said...

Oh, I hope she leaves him! How embarressing for her to be associated with that.

Hello Kim,

I hope his girlfriend dumps him. If he succeeded in getting women, imagine what disease he could have given her? Chances are, he does this regularly, now he's caught with his pants, well... almost down.

That is embarrassing to his girlfriend, imagine being displaced, even if temporarily, by a prostitute. Karma.

This is my escape from the Demon of Austria. I will follow this up with another lighter post. Thanks for dropping by, I needed to feel pleasant:-) --Durano done!

Hi Erica,


He will get his comeuppance more than the extortion.

I think it would be perfectly proper for any woman to leave her boyfriend after such realizing that he engages in such things when alone. This sort of activity tends to continue even after marriage. As Forrest Gump said "Stupid is as Stupid does" :-) --Durano, done!

Not smart!

But don't be surprised if the GF gets back with him. He's a good earner, and some women are willing to overlook certain "indiscretions" just to keep the lifestyle.
The other halves of Kobe Bryant and our beloved 'ol Bill Clinton come to mind. And now that I think of it, Elizabeth Hurley was still with Hugh Grant for a while after his well publicized tryst (by the hour) with Divine Brown. After all the hubbub dies down, some of these ladies just forgive and turn the other cheek. (while keeping one vigilant eye open)

Hey, maybe she'll get a big, gigantic rock on on finger like Kobe's wife did to make up for it!
Guess we'll just have to wait and see! ;)

Hi Fitness Diva,

The case of Elizabeth Hurley I think concerned some contracts that had to be ironed out and delivered that's why she stayed on for a while.

The wife of Kobe did take him back together with a big diamond ring. But this kind of gesture also suggests that respectability can be bought. I know that the "practical" argument may be invoked but is that all its worth. I'd like to think that Kobe went down on his knees and groveled for acceptance and when she finally relented, gave the diamond as a token of thanks. But to accept him because of the big rock only means it can be translated to cash, and as this thing is repeated, if ever, they will keep on haggling over the price because of the tendency to get lower in value. :-) --Durano, done!

Whoa, first I've heard of this. I started enjoying soccer during the 2006 World Cup but you never read about this stuff in the US.

Hi Zen,

Soccer is the world's most popular sport, and its stars are the most idolized.

In the US, it's not as popular and the stars are often from Golf, Tennis Boxing or Basketball; but in Europe, Asia Africa and South America, it is followed religiously.

The US soccer team has not gained that much following because it is still new in the game and has not won any major event as yet, but they have made a creditable showing since 2004.

This case of Ronaldo is on the news in Asia, Europe, and South America. It's scandalously hilarious. How can it escape notice that the ones he picked were transvestites? He's actually in some mess with his girlfriend and his global image because of this misadventure. What an idiot! :-) --Durano, done!
