Miss Geena Rocero came into the world spotlight when she was featured on TED, “a global set of conferences run by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, under the slogan “Ideas Worth Spreading”. TED was founded in 1984 as a one-off event; the annual conference series began in 1990.”
Geena Rocero told us of a story about a model who walked the runways in Europe with a hidden secret. A story so touching that captured audiences around the world. The secret? The model was Geena and Geena claimed that she was a boy at birth. In short, Geena Rocero is a transgendered woman. The TED talk speech, she claims, was her coming out. She can no longer hide the fact and she needed to face her truth.
She became an instant celebrity both in the Philippines (where she was from) and abroad. She’s invited to charitable causes to speak or to grace the organizations with her humble presence.
No one can deny it, she’s beautiful and she knows how to deliver a great speech. She’s been interviewed by CNN, Huffington Post, People Magazine, New York Magazine and many other major media outlets. She became the voice of the transgender community. This was all before Caitlyn Jenner.
So, when a friend tagged me on a post on Facebook about Geena Rocero, I was curious. When I read the post, I didn’t know whether to believe what I was reading or not. A woman named La Paola is claiming that Geena Rocero is a manipulating, money-laundering and fraudulent person who uses people to get to the top. Say what? Is that for real? This incident happened right after the Valkyrie incident in the Philippines where fashion designer Veejay Floresca was denied entrance to the club because of their “No Crossdressing Policy”. The action of the club’s security offended many and many have voiced out their opinions against the club and its owners – including TV Personality Vice Ganda and of course, Geena Rocero tweeting her disappointment and disgust against Valkyrie’s management.
The ‘No Crossdressing Policy’ in any establishment is so THIRD WORLD. If Valkyrie implements this crap i will pull out my very small share.

La Paola claims that Geena was being “ghetto” when she tweeted “like a screaming faggot” about the topic. I can no longer see the tweets that Geena had posted as I saw from her Facebook post when she told her followers that she will be removing negative posts from her feed.
A lady named LA Paola on Facebook who claims to be Geena Rocero’s mentor while she was in New York had opened a can of worms about Geena Rocero’s life. Because of her dismay on how Geena Rocero handled the Valkyrie incident through Twitter, LA Paola offered her opinion on Geena’s actions on the matter. It is unclear whether La Paola and Geena Rocero had a falling out or stopped talking to each other for whatever reason but La Paola’s words were sharp and stinging to the point that it will make you wonder. La Paola seems to be well-connected in high society circles including association with Embassies and high-profile elites. There are photos of her with Imelda Marcos, The King and Queen of Spain, her travels to different parts of Europe and her cover photo even shows her shaking hands with the most adorable and eligible royal bachelor, Prince Harry.
I cannot judge because I personally do not know both Geena and La Paola, so I will post what I have read on Facebook below. Be the judge and tell us your opinion in the comments section below:
GEENA HIGH FLYING ADORE
WITH REGARDS TO YOUR TWIT THE OTHER DAY ABOUT VALKYRIE.
YOU NEVER LEARN THE CARDINAL RULE OF SOCIETY, WHAT I TAUGHT YOU BEFORE ??? The Art of diplomacy.
You don’t sound like an activist and role model to your followers. You sound like a screaming faggot from ghetto.
Oh well, I forgot, that’s where you came from!!
Ancient Chinese saying: It is the empty can that makes the loudest noise”…..
I don’t really know how you educate your followers co’z obviously you’re very good in personifying your nouveau act. YOU’RE A WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING !!!
Did you tell your followers about the NARITA AIRPORT INCIDENT?
The real reason you were detained by the Japanese Immigration ? You were acting indecently, and you were dressed like a hooker and your travel documents
( Philippine Passport and your green card ) those biographical data informations were different .
You were using ROMULO ROCERO as Male on your PHILIPPINE passport and
GEENA ROCERO as Female on your GreenCard. And you said on your TV interview that you were discriminated by the Immigration? Your documents had discrepancies !!!
You argued and create a scene without knowing anything about Japanese immigration law?
Who spoke to the Japanese Immigration and got you released from the immigration office right away…? Tell me Geena…? It’s ME !!!! So, I’m wandering how are you going to protect your followers? You can’t even protect and defend yourself in Tokyo?
Oh I recall something now, that you are a runway “mawdel?”
GEENA, let me correct something. YOU WERE NEVER A RUNWAY MODEL IN NEW YORK !!!
You were just a catalog model on low budget commercial, You’re a class D model!
OBVIOUSLY YOU DON’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE OF A RUNWAY AND A CATALOG MODEL!
And those photos in your Q cards? Those were used for your resumes that you paid for.
Your photos did not appear in VOGUE MAGAZINE EVER !!!! So stop fabricating stories.
I guess you forgot? You were high in coke, I was the one who brought you to Elaine Ford and Wilhlamina, but you are rejected because your over age.
But, I must complement you. You had your gigs too.
DOES ANY BODY KNOW HOW YOU FORGED YOUR NEW PHILIPPINE PASSPORT UNDER THE NAME OF GEENA ROCERO BEFORE YOU BECOME A US CITIZEN ????
I guess that’s a big scandal, That’s PERJURY and you can go to jail in the Philippines. If someone will file a criminal case against you !
All your followers will be all disappointed!
I can’t wait to see you in person….because , I would be very delighted to strip you off wearing all my clothes, shoes, and my CHANEL BAG that you almost snatch from my closet and I gracefully gave it to you as a token of my love. And what about the little black Balenciaga dress that I got from Paris and I paid $2,000 dollars? You snatched that dress from me !!!!!
DID ANYONE KNOW THAT TIM GARCIA
( Son of the corrupt General in Manila ) aka ISABEL CRUZ and GEENA ROCERO are best of friend and coke buddies?
Ooops ! GEENA is the official courier to bring out huge cash from Manila for Isabel’s allowance in New York City. Because their assets and money were confiscated by the Federal Supreme Court of United States. Ooops !
That’s money laundering! Again you can go to jail here in the United Sates.
GEENA ROCERO I know your enjoying your stardom in Manila.
And you love the FAME !!!!!
But darling you got too many skeletons on your closet and you better clean it.
Oh no, I forgot you don’t clean your house, and you don’t own one !
The house in Hampston, that you showed to the press of ABS-CBN was your Sugar Daddy’s house. I don’t understand why ABS-CBN is glorifying you, without any background check?
I remember it was Fall 2007. You knocked on my door with your Duane Read plastic bags where you have all your personal belongings and asked me if you can sleepover, because you got evicted from Jeff Menshel Apt. and your other Sugar Daddy turned you down because he doesn’t want to be your guarantor to your new Apt. at Upper East side? Correction Geena that’s not Upper East Side, it’s Spanish Harlem because you filed for bankruptcy !
What did I do, I made a bed for you and you slept on my hide-away bed with Frette bed sheets. I offered you a dinner and you declined. I advised you many times to renew your life. I even convinced you to go to college, but what did you do?
You just keep on partying and partying. Who took your finances when you want to save money? Me ! I did everything so you could save money, and at the end. I saved $7,000. That money was used for your new Apt. Since then, I never heard from you. But, Darling you stabbed me behind my back and the worst you disrespected me. Telling me to get a life!
GEENA ROCERO I’m happy about your newfound status, you have chosen to ignore, disregard, disrespect, and take for granted two people who helped you on your climb from nobody to “become somebody.” Without my personal help, support , assistance, guidance, counseling and nurturing, including everything from lending and giving my personal belongings, helping you to find a place to live.
Without LEE GEIGER’S FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, YOU WILL NEVER MAKE IT TO NEW YORK CITY !!!
Yet, once you got on your feet and established yourself, you de-friend all of us. You never offered LEE GEIGER not even one single word of encouragement or support for his book, despite all he’s effort to include you in the process of writing the book.
MARAMI KANG TAO GINAMIT, PINAGSAMANTALAHAN AT SINAKTAN ANG MGA DAMDAMIN! ALAM MO YAN AT KILALA MO SILANG LAHAT. NAKAKA-AWA KA GEENA, DAHIL NILOLOKO MO AT

How can we solve the poverty in the Philippines if we have millions of Idiots, uneducated, narrow minded, user, and freeloaders citizens. Whether, a construction work, security guard, local officials, vendors, activist, social workers can be bribe for money. They will accept money just to promote their propaganda, agenda, cause, advocacy, or project. It all falls in one shape, Pyramid Scam! We have a new trends of generations, who works to extort the minds of innocent helpless poor people to be their avid followers. And this extortionists are exploited by corrupt politicians by giving them a reward, donation, contributions, favors to win their personal vested interest. While these wanna- be- intellectuals are preaching like experienced advocate is getting her pay check paid in millions of pesos by corrupt politicians too, one of the good example is Geena Rocero. The poor followers and aficionados suffers from this cause. The wanna- be- intellectuals won’t careless about their advocacy if the money keeps on rolling. They won’t care for your equality, your rights, and your well being. Even when your dead. They won’t care. They will show up their faces like a wolf in sheep clothing just to get your attention that she’s grieving too. What happen to the Laude Case? Did she donate money for burial? What she care is your presence and your ballistic support. It’s a sick cycle. If you think Geena Rocero is sincere and devoted advocate for her cause. Is she willing to go to Russia and Uganda to fight her advocacy there? Is she willing to die for her advocacy? I don’t think so…
However, behaviors such as smug arrogance, pious moralizing, self-righteous hypocrisy, and burning bridges with those who helped guide your quest to make a better life for yourself, will create a hole in the safety net she hopes will catch her when she falls. And fall she will, because no balloon floats forever.
