Despite the full-force campaign of her family and a lot of big stars, the manager of some showbiz stars Annabelle Rama lost in her congressional bid in the first district of Cebu City.
During the campaign period, Eddie Gutierrez and her celebrity kids Ruffa, Richard and Raymond were seen campaigning for her. Other stars who flew to Cebu to support her candidacy included Anne Curtis, the kid host Ryzza Mae Dizon, Pops Fernandez and Ogie Alcasid.
As of Tuesday morning, Annabelle only had 31,217 votes based on the unofficial results from the Comelec Transparency Server, and that’s with 100% of election returns already processed.
She ran under the opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).
The Liberal Party’s Raul del Mar won the election with 114,653 votes.
The feisty talent manager Rama, mother of siblings Ruffa, Richard and Raymond Gutierrez, and former sexy star Annabelle is also known for controversial issues, among them involving word and legal wars against Wilma Galvante and Nadia Montenegro, and causing a scene at the wake of Comedy King Dolphy
