RAJ, TOTALLY DETHRONED! – BPCI


The other day, Funfare published a story that Sen./Vice Presidentiable Loren Legarda, champion of women’s rights (besides the protection of the environment), was joining other quarters in deploring the dethronement of Maria Venus Raj as 2010 Bb. Pilipinas-Universe due to “discrepancies” in her application form uncovered barely two weeks after she had won the crown. She will be replaced in the Miss Universe pageant scheduled sometime in August (venue not known yet) by second runner-up Helen Nicolette Henson and not by the first runner-up, Dianne Necio, since she was 17 during the contest (last March 6) and not 18 by Feb. 1 as per the rule of the Miss U pageant. So why was Dianne allowed to compete in the Bb. pageant in the first place only not to be allowed to take over from the winner? Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

SIGURADONG tinutukan ng buong Pilipinas, kasama na ang mga Pinoy sa iba’t ibang panig ng mundo, ang inanunsiyo ni Ryan Agoncillo sa Eat Bulaga. Maaga pa lang ay nagsabi na si Joey de Leon na may ia-announce si Ryan bago ang portion na Bababoom.

Pero, pagpasok ni Ryan sa portion na `yon, in-announce niya na after ng lang ng segment siya magsasalita. Eh, after ng segment, parang deadma pa si Ryan, at doon na nga pumasok ang mga Dabarkads niya, at pinilit siyang magsalita. Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

‘COMING OUT BIRTHDAY PARTY NI PIOLO PASCUAL ANG ASAP YESTERDAY?’ – ALFIE LORENZO


ANG laking kaestupiduhan talaga ang ginawa ng “ASAP” kahapon sa birthday presentation for Piolo Pascual na itinutu­ring nilang heartthrob, pero ang image na ipininta ay hindi klaro – kung ito ba ay syokoy o sirena?

Diyosa ba tulad ni Anne Curtis na kalahati tao-kalahati kabayo? Si Piolo ba ang image ng Singapore na kalahati lion kalahati isda? Anoh bah talaga?

Matagal nang pinagpasensyahan ang mala-Halloween party sa gulo na presentation linggu-linggo, parang karnabal-comedy bar-tawag ng tanghalan format ng Sunday show. Basta kanta lang nang kanta kung sino ang dumating, isalang! Wala talagang format. Ni hindi pinag-iisipan ng mga writers ng programa kung ano ang mga pinapakawalan nila diyan!

Isipin na lang sana nila kung ano ang mga ipapakanta at ano ang ibig sabihin ng mga lyrics ng bawa’t kanta kung may malisya bah? Basta lang ba makapagpakanta at paramihan ng naghandog ng kanta o nakaduweto ni Piolo ay dapat ng ipagpasa­lamat even if it destroyed the i­mage of their heartthrob? Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

alfie lorenzo : Sarah, lulubog agad kay Piolo


PANGARAP daw ni Sa­rah Geronimo na makapareha ang Papa Piolo ko.
At this stage of her career na blockbusters ang mga concert niya at pati mga pelikula niya ay nagbigay sa kanya ng “not once, but twice” na box-office queen, ano pa ang habol ni Sarah sa papa ko?

Uhummm, if I know may gusto kang tuklasin, lokah kah! Kasi, na-rate (hindi r-a-p-e, ha!) mo na si John Lloyd Cruz nang dalawang beses kaya curious ka naman sa taong binibigyan ng importansya pero hindi naman naibabalik ang importansyang ‘yun, ‘di kaya?

Kung baguhan sana si Sarah at star-gazing pa, I would understand her statement sa press.

Like all the rest who never made it, sina Aga Muhlach at Richard Gomez ang pangarap na makatambal ng gustong maging bida sa pelikula at feeling sikat na rin sila, where it used to be, where before Aga & Goma made it, it used to be a choice between Al Tantay & Lloyd Samartino, Gabby & William.

VILMA SANTOS, UNA SA PUSO ANG MGA BATANGUEÑO (owwwS? talaga?)


MADALING umakting na kunwari ay durug-durog na ang puso mo sa matinding dalamhati para sa mga binaha — kunwari, nanduon ang concern, pero nasaan na ang tulong, ha?
Sagutin mo nga ‘yan, Ate Vi, na pinabayan ang mga taga-Batangas habang nagpapasarap siya sa Amerika at Canada? ‘Yan ba ang klase ng gobernadora na ibinoto ng mga Batangueño?
Sobra ang concern sa mga kapuwa kuno niya Batangueños na more of Ralph Recto than Santos na Kapampangan ang ugat sa mga kamay?
Puwede namang iwan ni Vilma ang premiere night ng gay movie nilang mag-ina, tutal, nanduon naman ang anak niya at ang kahalikan nitong si John Lloyd. Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

Last Viewing: A good cry at first viewing

Janice de Belen as the stone-hearted unwed mother (with Maro Panganiban as her autistic daughter): Probably her best performance so far

Had Janice de Belen turned down the role of a stone-hearted (as in “unfeeling”) unwed mother in the indie film Last Viewing, I’m sure she would have regretted it all her life. She’s so good in the movie that I couldn’t help but shed tears when I saw an advance CD copy of it, courtesy of Funfare’s Toronto-based “international correspondent” Ferdinand Lapuz (here for vacation).

“Yes, it’s true,” confirmed Janice whose last movie, Annie B., was shown as if ages ago (we miss good actresses like her so much that even a brief absence feels like eternity, right?). “When the role was offered to me, I was hesitant not only because I hadn’t done a movie for quite a while but also because, when I read the script, I found it ‘heavy drama’ and I doubted if I could still act. Besides, I was pressed for time because at that time, aside from my daily TV show (SIS on GMA), I was taking up culinary arts and I felt na ‘yung kailangan nilang oras ay hindi ko maibigay.” Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

the day the Philippines conquered the universe


Photo is loading...

Gloria Diaz reacts with a euphoric smile as soon as she’s named Miss Universe in Miami, Florida, on July 21 (July 20 US Time), 1969, the first ever Filipina to bring home the coveted crown

Her answer came quick and easy, and she didn’t stammer nor hesitate at all, showing her presence of mind and grace under pressure.

Aboard Apollo 11, Neil Armstrong, along with fellow Astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, had just landed on the moon (“One small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind,” said Armstrong), the first man ever to accomplish that feat, and Miss Universe pageant host Bob Barker, euphoric like every human on earth, read the critical and decisive question to each of the five finalists, four of whom inside a sound-proof cubicle: If the man on the moon should come down to Earth and visit your hometown, what would you do to entertain him?

Unruffled, the 18-year-old petite Bb. Pilipinas-Universe answered, “Why, I guess I would do for him what I always do. Since he has been away on the moon for so long, he would want a change.”

That, among other winning qualities, helped Gloria Diaz clinch for the Philippines its first ever Miss Universe crown (followed four years later, in 1973, by Margie Moran in Greece). Soon after, US Pres. Richard Nixon came for a visit and he mentioned in his speech, “Americawas conquered the moon but the Philippines conquered the universe.” Magpatuloy sa pagbasa

what piolo wants


As Piolo Pascual says in the Centrum commercial (where the picture of him running was taken, right), “I want to be complete.”

So he tries — hard!!! — to achieve that goal.

“I am never satisfied with doing just one thing,” adds the multi-tasker.

So, not contented with just being an actor, he has ventured into producing movies, the first being Manila (under his own Bicycle Pictures in cooperation with MJM Productions) which was shown at the recent Festival de Cannes Special Selection (Out of Competition), giving him the rare opportunity to walk on the Cannes red carpet.

‘notes’ exposure ni coco, not a demolition job… lalo siyang sumikat , noh???


cocomartin22ALAM n’yo bang ngayon pa lang pinagpapasa-pasahan sa mga Yahoo group sa Internet ang video grabs ng mga eksena nina Coco Martin at Mercedes Cabral sa Serbis na kitang-kita ang naghuhumindig na “sandata” ni Coco?

Last year pa ipinalabas ang indie film na ‘yon ni direk Brillante “Dante” Mendoza , pero nitong huling linggo ng Hunyo, dalawang beses kaming nakatanggap sa isa sa aming Yahoo mailboxes ng mga litrato ng sex scene na ‘yon nina Coco at Mercedes. Doon sa pangalawa ay may “bonus” pang mga litrato naman ng mga eksena naman ni Christofer King habang bini-bj siya sa sinehan na siyang nag-iisang lunan (setting) ng pelikula. Magpatuloy sa pagbasa
