Who is lying and who is telling the truth, now that is the question.
Tak “Volcano boobs” Bongkot Kongmalai, an actress with a reputation, has always maintain that she has a good relationship with singer and actor Jay Monton Jira, she has even implied that she lived with him and that they are in some kind of relationship. Now Jay has come forward and said Tak is living in some kind of fantasy world. They haven’t talked in 3-4 years, Jay has accused Tak of linking herself to him for publicity purposes. She has nothing going on at the moment and she needs attention. That was harsh. He bluntly said that without remorse. I know it was harsh, but I find it all very amazing amusing (I swear I need to read what I write) though I have no interest in their careers. So now their is feud between them and he has no plans to ‘clear’ this matter with her ever.
“Right now, I’m not in a relationship, I broke up with my girlfriend in the middle of last year, roughly 8-9 months ago. With Tak, I haven’t been talking to her na krap. (However, there is a rumor that you are?) “That’s correct, I heard that too, someone told me that, but you have to go ask Tak about that because I know nothing about it. The last time we talked was when we filmed the movie “Pop Star”, back in 2006, it’s been awhile.” (Recently, there is news that Tak moved out of her house.) “That’s correct, I heard that she moved her belongings to live in my house, but in truth that is not the case at all (laughs).”(She has even said that you asked her ‘are you in a rush for work’ and you even forgot to put on your shoes) “Really? (he said with a raised voice) OH…that’s something (laughs). There is something like this too. That’s just impossible. At this moment, she doesn’t have work, right, but I don’t know for sure. However, every actress, how do I say this. Is this fantasy or what? Like her, many people are like this. Maybe she is too ‘in’ to her character, I’m not sure.” (Are you angry if by chance is she is making this up?)”I’m not angry, I know that rumors are helpful too, am I right?”
When you say that, you are implying she is just trying to generate publicity for herself. “Oh, doesn’t she know right now that my movie is coming out soon (Smiles). It’s possible, I don’t know for sure.”
In the past, you two have always been friends? “That’s correct, we were friends, in the past, we have even traveled together, worked together when we filmed a movie together back in 2006. To be confronted with news like this, it makes me confuse, it’s pretty funny also. Even my father has laughed about it. My father’s friends have even asked him if I was dating Tak Bongkot or not. My dad would answer, I have not even said them together.”
Have you talked to her since the news broke out? “I have not, I consider myself above it. I won’t. I have been in the entertainment for a long time now, I understand.”
So you will never clear it with her? “What for? You should call and interrogate my neighbors, if you want to know if it is true or not.”
If you see each other, will you stare at each other (I think they mean to look at each other with scorn)? “No, I have known her since she dated Johnny, I know how she is. I should know that Tak is like this or not.”
You are saying, you know her personality. “That’s correct, I’m not saying anything. I’m not angry. I understand that sometimes it is necessary in this industry. To prolong your stay in the entertainment industry, you have to think of ways to raise yourself up a little.”
Aren’t you scared, she might call and yell at you. “The truth is, I have talked about Tak often, but she doesn’t know. She is like….(became still). If I saw her again, I would understand if she was like that.”
Tak is a woman who speaks frankly, people tend to believe her, people might say you are not a gentleman. “I can understand that. But I don’t know what to do. Should I say that she has moved into my house already and has moved out now? I insist you ask Yam (laughs) or Dan (Danai Jira), or better yet, ask his girlfriend.”
So you can say that since you returned to Thailand, you have not talked to Tak since 2006. “That’s correct. We finished filming since the beginning of 2007, since then, we have not talked.”
To me, he pretty much slapped her in the face for all to see. That’s pretty harsh. I like his frankness though it was not gentleman-like at all.
Jay, back in the day.
