Naalaala ko pa ang isang kanta na sumikat noong dekada 60 na “Divina Valencia, Stella Suarez nagbuburles,” sung to the tune of A Hard Day’s Night ng The Beatles.
Divina and Stella were the moviedom’s sex sirens of the 60s. Divina was introduced in 1964 in the Jess Lapid launching movie “Kardong Kidlat,” while Stella was already acting in movies a year earlier but was doing contravida and supporting roles, before she was given a big break in 1965 in the movie, Mansanas sa Paraiso, directed by newcomer Celso Ad Castillo. Considered as sex sirens, Divina and Stella sexy roles were rather tamed extending only to exposing their backs, wearing skimpy clothes, nighties or bikinis and doing some light kissing scenes. Divina in particular became the favorite screen partner of most leading actors that time in the likes of FPJ, Joseph Estrada, Romeo Vasquez, Zaldy Zshornack, Dolphy, Chiquito, among others. She temporarily gave up her acting when she got married to action star Bernard Belleza. They had a son (Dranreb). Stella, on the other hand, went on her showbiz career doing some films during the Bomba era in the early 70s. Stella is mom to 80-90s movie idol Richard Gomez.
