It was undoubtedly a bountiful year as far as quality local films are concerned. With four major independent film festivals yielding more than their fair share of the best and most exciting films during the last two quarters, it follows that we would see some of the finest performances that certainly deserve to be recognized.

While in the heat of promoting his latest starrer, Regal Film’s ‘STATUS:IT’S COMPLICATED’ on an anemic has-been talkshow, PAULO AVELINO admitted that his lovelife is all coming up roses since he is dating Sharon & Gabby’s baby KC CONCEPCION. The roof raised and some screams were heard. Imagine, Paulo and KC dancing tango somewhere in your thoughts! “Yeah, we’re dating,” was his categorical answer to the question. A reply which can stand on itself without having to trivialize the whole matter. The thing with local showbiz reportage you see, is that they pick on the obvious and paint the whole picture with malice. Is it our business what gives Paulo A hard-on? Hardly. We should not be worried with our favorite actors private affairs ; but then we do and when we are into it , we seek details that are denied to us. So why bother. Anyway, KC on the other hand rushed to twit and imply that there isn’t a ghost of a romance between the two of them. They might have gone out with friends but no amorous sparks ensued. She just might be denying, but then again, WHO CARES???
Some cheeky a bit cheesy showbiz comrade sent me a viber message that made me rush to where my dentures were , popped them into my cavity and started screaming! WHAAAAATTTT???? The earth-shakin’, mind-bogglin’ news about LUIS MANZANO & JENNYLYN MERCADO’s break-up totally numbed me from chin down to my pubes! It wasn’t easy for me to calm down so easily since from the start of their relationship I only wished that they both were good enough for each other to lead them into marital bliss forever and a day. There were of course speculations of a shortlived liaison for allegedly due to several issues such as bisexuality and promiscuity [damn, you figure to whom which of which apply to]. For a while, they seemed so jelled up and romantic sparks were reportedly seen everytime they appeared together in public. But then, here it is. They have split up. Possible reasons? The usual, personality quirks that don’t jibe; a third party who came late and drank like a fish; archived ills that is unearthed every now so often to chill the bottle… and a whole lot of other interplanetary bumps that severed a bond once tied to each other’s heart. In few, or better still this weekend one of them will be interviewed by some bald phantom and everybody will be made to believe what they feel should be appropriately believable! Touché!
Just when we all thought that everything has come to place between 90s Sex Goddess ROSANNA ROCES and her former employer GMA Network, we are suddenly taken aback with a recently released news item : THE Regional Trial Court of Quezon City decided in favor of GMA Network in the case it filed against Jennifer Molina, more popularly known as Rosanna Roces, for violating her contract as a Startalk host in 2004. GMA filed a complaint against Molina in 2005 for breach of contract after appearing in ABS-CBN’s showbiz entertainment shows during the lifetime of her talent agreement with GMA. In a seven-page decision, presiding Judge Alfonso Ruiz III of RTC branch 216 ruled that Molina breached her talent agreement with GMA when she appeared in ABS-CBN’s shows with the same format as Startalk, namely The Buzz and the defunct S-Files after she announced her “retirement” from show business. The Court added that her announcement did not terminate her talent contract with GMA, which specifically prohibits her to appear or perform in any program of the same format or time slot as Startalk within the duration of the agreement. “She cannot unilaterally dismiss a contract which she voluntarily entered into with the mere declaration that she is retiring from show business, and then escape the obligations stated in the contract,” ruled Ruiz. Molina was ordered to pay GMA P1,500,000 representing liquidated damages, P400,000 as exemplary damages, P100,000 as attorney’s fees and cost of suit. Despite the court’s strongly placed decision, Ms. Roces nonetheless is adamant with her stand that she will not shell a single cross eyed five centavos to the network and that they should charge the 1.5M to Bong Revilla [?] who is now in hot water with the pork barrel allegations. In her FB page she replied to a query on the subject with : “UNA wala akong natatanggap na anumang sulat kung me hearing o wala pangalawa.. namatay ang abugado kong si ATTY DAVE PUYAT at magmula nuon kung anuman ang nangyari sa kaso ay clueless ako. pangatlo. ANG pag bitaw ko sa trabaho ay June matapos ang huling bday ko sa startalk 2004. lumabas ito after isiwalat nila lolit na buntis ang anak ko. Ang d buzz appearance ay nangyari Dec ng same year at tungkol yun sa Hiwalayan naming mag asawa. Tinanggap nila ang resignation ko..malinaw na pinalalaya na nila ako..Kung ako naka kontrata pa sa kanila mula nuon..eh di dapat me natatanggap akong sweldo para masabi nila na ako ay under their company’s contract. since alam naman ng lahat ang nangyari sa buhay ko na di ko naman itinatanggi… wala akong pagkukunan ng ganyang halaga..at kung meron man….di nila ito makukuha sa akin sa hirap ng buhay at sa daming isyu ng pagnanakaw sa gobyerno na katumbas ng pagnanakaw sa ating lahat na nagpapakahirap para maitaguyod lang ating pamilya sa tamang pamamaraan. gaya ng sinabi ko sa FB ” CHARGE NYO NA LANG KE BONG REVILLA ” . Prayers included”
When some friends alerted me late Monday night about the latest SVS [SexVideoScandal] starring noontime tv minion WALLY BAYOLA and a certain wiggler from the same show, I wasn’t too hot to make patol. I thought this might just be another blank bullet ricocheting with some hint of indiscretion. There is no real value with SVS’ frankly. They simply surface, shatter logic and either make or break those who star on them. But when I finally had to watch it after being coaxed by my almost-human assistant Chiririt Misomiso ; I felt violated! It showed WALLY BAYOLA alright and EB Babe Yosh humping on the floor , then the camera is panned to the pussy spurting some left-over cum! GROSS! Clear enough, Bayola isn’t all that funny. He still is a mortal capable of doing [like video-ing] a private moment with another woman. Yes, another woman since he is married and has five kids. Naturally, somebody still has to talk or comment about the sexvid; not Bayola himself or the bimbo herself or their management (Bayola was obviously NOT in EatBulaga yesterday). But then, what is there to say? That the video was inappropriately shared by a robber who stole a hard drive? After having too much pork barrel chit-chat, this piggy video is not at all welcome!
I must be very blessed this time around. Having had the chance [not just a ghost-of!] to visit one of Cebu‘s [and perhaps of this country , too] high-end resort/hotel where I celebrated my birthday is definitely one sweet episode of my fifty-seven lovely years in this planet. Totally expensive and quaint, BLUE WATER MARIBAGO Resort links you up effortlessly to nature without the usual frenzy and tacky crowd available to lesser mortals. As you are ushered in, you suddenly imbibe a classy air where an almost invisible [but cordial] crew make sure that your stay will be as heavenly as possible. Settling by the pool and a slightly late lunch, I felt a serene breeze shoot right through my snout which lingered until the second I hesitantly had to bid adieu to rejoin the nastier part of where I came from. I won’t give details as to pricing and amenities among other etceteras since I am NOT a travel blogger. If you feel that these limited snapshots are good enough to entice your itchy heels to hail the next plane to Cebu then visit their website by clicking this link : BLUEWATER MARIBAGO
Yesterday I visited Lilo-an town , a 15 minute ride north of Cebu City. The town is best known to be the home of Lola Titay Fuentes, now long gone but her baked goodies are still tops in your pasalubong list. It is also where the fabulous Pilar Pilapil grew up to be the queen and star that she is. But then the focal point of the town’s totality is the parola or watch tower that beams through the night to guide seafarers on their watery tracks. Here’s a quick wikinote : One of the best known landmarks in Lilo-an is its historic lighthouse at Bagacay Point. The original lighthouse was built in 1857 by the Spanish. However, the current tower was constructed in 1904 by order of William Howard Taft, the first Governor-General of the Philippines and later the President of the United States. The tower is 72 feet tall and remains in active use today using solar energy. The lighthouse has been declared a National Historical Landmark on August 13, 2004 by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (formerly known as National Historical Institute).
By the way LILO-AN literally means ‘whirlpool’ … yes, lots of tiny whirlpools at the delta of the suba. Visit Lilo-an sometime…
An Accidental Pose @ SandBar Resort in Cordova, Cebu
I am now enjoying the salient charm of the Queen City of the South. Just a short two week vacation to celebrate my birthday on August 30. I am totally oblivious to what is happening beyond my realm and that is fine. This is what a lot of people my age should do, shut off a world and slip into another for better reasons. It is such a great joy to mess around with my five year old grandchild Adie and blindly walk the streets of this historic city while pretending to be naive above it all. Basking in the sun, frolicking in the sand and breathing the Visayan air is a breather I will always cherish and not mind doing again next year…
GRETCHEN BARRETTO is a name to reckon with. Of course we are all aware of how she came to stay in our celluloid schemes and smoked our pipedreams like a dragonette addicted to the scent of fame. Her mistiza allure hypnotized an audience who at some time were getting nauseous with a certain Cristina Gonzales ; another mistiza who showed the peripherals of her privates in such a titillating way that made young boys touch themselves more than the usual. GRETA as she was called later, grabbed the ST queen crown scepter, sash and bouquet and declared Gonzales a goner. Her affairs with men were mere speculations and when the time was ripe she settled to become the mistress of a playboy/millionaire who sired her a daughter in his image. This time , she wracks our family values by warring with her siblings and parents. If you carefully decipher the codes written on her botoxed face, you will see that the iceberg has melted. She has exposed immoral secrets and assured the world that the family , as an institution is soluble and worthless if its members are loosely related to the rational prerequisites of society. At a recent awards night, she smirked and bellowed sarcasm towards inane questions by cretinous reporters who wanted some blood. GRETA is not a lady. She has never been one. Perhaps we should not totally judge her but rather regard her case as someone who has not absorbed the deeper essence of being a woman, a mortal, a citizen, a daughter, a sister, a mother … she has settled for what is easier to achieve and that is being a BITCH.
Spreading like a plague at this very moment as you breathe are talks that JUDY ANN SANTOS and RYAN AGONCILLO‘s marriage is in imminent danger of being run over by a bus from splitsville! Allegedly , the actress have had it with hubby’s philandering and his way of belittling her person at any given situation. Are these mere buoys to attract curiosity and pile up some audience share with Ms. Santos’ low rating series as opposed to GMA’s MHL? Eventually, when all wars have been won, truth will prevail and nobody is declared a winner in this crazy game of love , deceit and hate!
What could have been a subtle Saturday afternoon suddenly becomes a scorchy affair as talks/screengrabs/video of the latest sex scandal crosses the local showbiz skies in a blaze. CHITO MIRANDA, front man of Parokya Ni Edgar and girlfriend Neri Naig (former StarCircleQuest wanna-be) are shown in compromising poses of intimacy. Apparently , the Miranda home was robbed and one of those taken was the hard drive disk where their sex video/s were in. Miranda was also quick to react on the controversy saying that “We are truly saddened by the fact na may nag-leak na private video of me and my girlfriend, Neri Naig,” Well, this is one lesson never learned , a lot of celebs and common mortals take to their perverse ways and document really sleazy intimate moments that often fall into some enterprising hands to make some sick bucks!
