It's Confirmed! RICHARD GUTIERREZ is KC CONCEPCION's Leading Man in Her First Movie

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)





Tuloy na tuloy na ang pagtatambal nina Richard Gutierrez at KC Concepcion sa pelikula. Ito ang kinumpirma ng Star Cinema sa report ng TV Patrol World.

Si Richard ang pumirma ng one-picture contract sa Star Cinema kahit exclusive GMA Films star ang young actor. Present sa contract signing sina Ms. Malou Santos at Roxy Liquigan ng Star Cinema; ang ina at manager ni Richard na si Ms. Annabelle Rama; at ang OIC ng GMA Films na si Noel Ferrer.

It should be emphasized that this movie is indeed an exclusive Star Cinema production and not co-produced by GMA Films. (Click here GMA Films press release.) The movie that will star Richard and KC is to be directed by Ms. Joyce Bernal, and will be released later this year.

Nagsimula ang usap-usapan tungkol sa pagtatambal nina Richard at KC nang pumirma ng three-picture deal si KC sa Star Cinema last Wednesday, April 30. Hindi man siya nagbigay ng kumpirmasyon, nagbigay ng pahiwatig si KC na si Richard ang magiging leading man niya sa una niyang pelikula.

Nang tanungin kasi siya tungkol sa kanyang first leading man, ito lang ang binitawan niyang salita: "Siguro po ang masasabi ko riyan, ipinaglaban naming dalawa." (Click here to read full story.)

Marami ang nagsasabi na imposibleng magkatambal sina Richard at KC dahil nakakontrata sila sa magkalabang networks at film companies; si Richard sa GMA-7 at GMA Films samantalang si KC sa ABS-CBN at Star Cinema.

Pero dahil na rin siguro sa matinding clamor mula sa mga tagahanga nina Richard at KC na pagsamahin sila sa isang pelikula, nagkaroon ng katuparan ang maitututring na "dream project" na ito.

Hindi nagbigay ng detalye ang TV Patrol World tungkol sa negosasyong naganap sa pagitan ng kampo ni Richard at ng Star Cinema, o kung gagawa rin ba ng pelikula si KC sa ilalim ng GMA Films. Pero matatandaang nagbigay ng feelers ang GMA Films sa Star Cinema na willing silang makipag-co-produce para sa proyektong pagsasamahan nina Richard at KC.

Sa contract signing ni KC ay sinabi niya na sobrang excited siya sa mga naka-lineup na pelikula niya sa Star Cinema dahil marami raw silang sorpresang ihahandog sa mga manonood. Ang pagtatambal nila ni Richard, na balitang nanliligaw rin kay KC, ang tinutukoy na isa sa mga sorpresa ng young actress.

Kinumpirma rin ng managing director ng Star Cinema na si Ms. Malou Santos na isa si Richard sa pinagpipilian nilang maging leading man ni KC.

Sisimulan ang shooting ng pelikula nina Richard at KC sa June, pagbalik ng young actress mula sa pagbabakasyon niya sa Paris, France.

KC CONCEPCION Graces "Preview" Magazine's Cover for May

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



On a busy afternoon, a pretty young girl sips her coffee in a lush condominium. Quite by accident, she spills the drink and the hot liquid runs through the rug. The household help rushes in with a sponge and a bowl of water in hand, ready to clean up the mess. To everyone's surprise, the pretty young girl takes the bowl and sponge, gets down on her knees, and begins to scrub away at the stain. Despite pleas for her to just leave it be, she insists on scrubbing away at the stain until the rug is finally clean.

It is a simple story of a girl who decided to show her respect to the home's owner by cleaning up after her own mess. That is, until you find out that the pretty young girl is KC Concepcion and the lush condominium was the makeshift dressing room for the cover shoot for the May issue of Preview magazine, which took place at the rooftop of a condominium building.

The entire Preview team was caught by surprise when KC got down on her knees to clean up the stain; after all, they had been treating her like the celebrity that she is all afternoon. But in that simple act of humility, KC proved that behind all the glitz and glamour is a girl who is just like everyone else—she just happens to be in show business.

As KC's star shines brightly in all forms of media, it's hard to believe that she spent much of her childhood not wanting to be in show business. "It's a dance," KC tells Preview, "Everything—fashion, acting, music—melds and works together, and that's the beauty of what we in showbiz do; it's that we can do many things all at the same time."

As KC concentrates on music and acting, she acknowledges that she could even be doing a lot more, especially since she entered showbiz to fill a personal, creative need. "But it would have been crazy!"

Watching KC as she prepared for the Preview cover shoot, one would think that her life is moving at such a dizzying speed, it is almost crazy. The Preview team paints a picture of a multi-tasking KC: as she was being dolled up on the makeup chair, she studied a script on her lap and talked to her manager, her mobile phone tucked between her ear and her shoulder.

The pressure is clearly on, and KC knows it. "I don't think people realize that there's double the pressure for me compared to others who've been in the industry for a long time and have learned the ropes here. In my case, all eyes are on the work and if you mess up, you're dead," she says, "And this makes me work doubly hard."

But she is quick to add that her mom, megastar Sharon Cuneta, has taught her a thing or two about being in this business. "My mom reminded me that at the end of the day, it is work, and that you shouldn't drown in it," she shares, "Just do your work because people will always say whatever they want about you—good or bad."

KC simply soldiers on through showbiz and tries to apply as much of her Paris education as she can. With a degree in International Corporate Communications from the American University in Paris, KC explains that many of the things she learned have fueled her fascination with brands. "I love brands!" she says excitedly. "And in my work as an actor, I'm my own brand. And I'm also my own corporation, with my own product lines. I have my music, TV, endorsements, and hopefully a movie—and they're all under my brand. It's cool!"

KC is a sight for sore eyes as she wears Bayo's ultra magnetic brights in Preview magazine this month. The May issue of Preview is now available in all leading bookstores and magazine stands at P125 per copy.

MARIAH CAREY Marries Rap Artist NICK CANNON

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)





Top-selling diva Mariah Carey and popular rap singer and actor Nick Cannon “secretly” married this week at her home in the Bahamas, according to several media reports and blogs.

The New York Post cited a source close to Mariah as saying the pair wed secretly in front of a few selected friends and relatives at the diva’s house in Eleuthera.

Latina.com, the Web site for Latina magazine, on the other hand cited a source near Cannon as saying the nuptials took place on Wednesday, and In Touch Weekly said Cannon had designed a $2.5 million ring he gave to his new bride.

These reports are not yet confirmed as representatives for both Carey and Cannon are still mum about the issue.

38 year-old Mariah Carey, has just released the No. 1 single “Touch My Body” off her latest album “E=MC2,” which also debuted on record charts as the best-selling album in mid-April. She has enjoyed tremendous success as a recording artist starting in 1990 with her self-titled debut album and starred on such films as “Glitter” and “Wise Girls” (regarded as two of the worst films ever). Mariah will star in an upcoming road-trip movie “Tennesse”.

27-year-old Nick Cannon, has acted on television and in films such as 2002’s “Drumline” and “Shall We Dance?” and he made his singing debut with a self-titled album in 2003 and followed up in 2006 with “Stages.”

The pair met when Cannon directed a video for her recent single, “Bye, Bye,” and have been dating for several weeks, according to reports.

Mariah was previously married to record executive Tommy Mottola, but they divorced in 1998. For Cannon, It’s his first marriage.

"It's Over Between Me and Echo" - HEART EVANGELISTA

Posted by JED on Wednesday, April 30, 2008 , under | comments (0)



And so, after all the blind items and the unconfirmed tab headlines, Heart Evangelista has finally admitted that she and Jericho Rosales have decided to part ways after going steady for more than three years.

Heart realized that she has to focus on her career,” Annabelle Rama told the press. Annabelle is the new manager of Heart, with Heart’s father, Rey Ongpauco, as co-manager.

A few days ago, Heart signed a two-year contract with GMA-7. Heart was formerly a contract star of ABS-CBN where she did her last TV starrer, Pangarap Na Bituin.

I also realized that I’ve done my parents wrong by disobeying them,” said Heart who reconciled with her parents after being estranged for three years.

It must be recalled that Heart entered into a relationship with Jericho against her parents’ wishes.

Asked if she and Jericho “lived-in,” Heart said no.

She decided to live independently in her own condo unit in Makati almost at the same time she started going steady with Jericho.

For a while, she was managed by Manila Genesis (headed by Angeli Pangilinan who wasn’t pleased by Heart’s switch from Kapamilya to Kapuso). Jericho is currently in Kuala Lumpur shooting a teleserye jointly produced by ABS-CBN and a Malaysian company. He remains a contract star of ABS-CBN/Star Cinema and is still managed by Manila Genesis.

Heart’s first project for GMA is the action-adventure series Asero (tentative title) with Richard Gutierrez in the title role, shooting of which will start this weekend.

More than ever,” added Heart who is, like Jericho, a Born-Again Christian, “I also realized that you should never go against your parents.”

The rumors that Heart and Jericho were breaking up started circulating when it was known a few weeks ago that Heart had cut ties with Manila Genesis.

At first, Heart (and Jericho for that matter) was mum about the rumors.

She reached a decision only yesterday,” said Annabelle (who, along with husband Eddie Gutierrez, is a long-time friend of Heart’s father). “Kaya ngayon lang siya umamin.”

BRITNEY SPEARS Reprises Guest Role on ‘How I Met Your Mother’

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Her first guesting stint on “How I Met Your Mother” has fueled its ratings to its all time high. Now, Britney Spears is reprising her role as secretary Abby on the CBS comedy series.

We’re all so thrilled to have Britney joining us once again,” series executive producer and co-creator Craig Thomas said in a statement.

The Britney Spears episode last March 24 won her good reviews and boosted the show’s viewership to 10.6 million compared to its average rating of 9.6 million.

The said episode ended with Britney (as secretary Abby) flirting with Barney (Neil Patrick Harris). The upcoming episode on May 12 has Abby and Barney sharing their mutual dislike of Ted (cast member Josh Radnor) and acting on it.

“How I Met Your Mother” stars Neil Patric Harris (Doogie Howser M.D.), Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel (”Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) as an urban family of 20-something New Yorkers.

Judy Ann Santos' PLONING Graded "A" by Cinema Evaluation Board

Posted by JED on Tuesday, April 29, 2008 , under | comments (0)



Nakatanggap ng "A" rating ng Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB) ang Ploning ni Judy Ann Santos. Siyempre pa, masayang-masaya ang aktres, hindi lang para sa kanya kundi para rin sa kanyang direktor at best friend na si Dante Garcia.

Pang-apat na pelikula na ni Judy Ann ang Ploning na nabigyan ng "A" ng CEB. Nauna nang nakakuha ng "A" ang mga pelikula niyang Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo (KKK); Ouija; at Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo (SSS).

"Masaya at feeling blessed si Juday dahil simula sa KKK, Ouija, SSK up to Ploning, Rated A siya. Lahat din ng mga naunang films ay kumita at cited siya. Wagi ang babae!" reaction ng isang malapit kay Judy Ann.

Siguradong nawala ang lahat ang kaba at pagod ni Judy Ann sa magandang balitang ito. Box-office returns na lang ang kanyang hihintayin at mga kasamang nag-produce ng Ploning, na magbubukas na tomorrow (April 30) Hopefully, maganda ang laban nito sa takilya.

Dahil graded "A," makakakuha ng 100 percent amusement tax exemption ang Ploning.

Last Sunday, April 26, kahit pagod mula sa promo sa SOP, contract signing sa Regal Entertainment, at guesting/promo for Pantene sa The Buzz, dumiretso pa si Judy Ann sa SM Bacoor para mag-promote ng Ploning.

Suwerte rin si Direk Dante dahil first movie pa lang niya ay Rated "A" agad ang nakuha. Pressure lang ito sa kanya dahil kailangang kasing-ganda o mas maganda pa ang susunod na ididirehe niyang pelikula, na isang comedy comedy naman at si Judy Ann pa rin ang bida.

Pormal nang inilabas ng officers and members ng Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC), Inc.—isang grupo ng entertainment writers and editors—ang official nominees para sa 24th PMPC Star Awards For Movies.

Pagkalipas ng ilang linggong pagtitiyagang mag-review ng cited films and performances para sa taong 2007, finally ay nakapaglabas na ng nominees sa 27 categories ang PMPC. Nagdesisyon din silang ihiwalay this year ang digital and mainstream film categories.

JUDY ANN SANTOS and CLAUDINE BARRETTO Face to Face for the First Time on "The Buzz"

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Nagharap na sa unang pagkakataon ang dalawang reyna ng teleserye sa ABS-CBN na sina Judy Ann Santos at Claudine Barretto sa The Buzz kahapon, April 27. Sabay na umupo sina Juday at Claudine kasama sina Gretchen Barretto at Ruffa Gutierrez para sa promotion ng Pantene na pare-pareho nilang ini-endorse.

Maaga pa lang ay parehong nasa magkatabing dressing room na sina Juday at Claudine. Katabi ng dressing room ni Claudine ang guest co-host ng The Buzz at kaibigan niyang si Kris Aquino. Nasa kabilang side naman ng bihisan ni Claudine ang dressing room ni Juday.

Kasama ni Claudine sa kanyang dressing room ang mister na si Raymart Santiago at ang dalawa nilang anak na sina Santino at Sabina.

Pagpasok pa lang ng studio ng The Buzz ay nakakabinging sigawan na ng mga fans nina Juday at Claudine ang nangibabaw. Pero wala namang naganap na bastusan o tarayan ang dalawang kampo ng mga fans.

Kilala si Claudine na fighter sa showbiz. Kahit laban ng kapatid niya, hindi umuurong si Claudine. Wala raw laban na inatrasan si Claudine.

"We were raised that way na kailangan talaga kapag mahal mo ang isang tao poprotektahan mo at ibibigay mo lahat sa taong yun," pahayag ni Claudine nang tanungin siya ni Boy Abunda tungkol sa pagiging palaban niya.

Kasunod nito ay si Judy Ann naman ang nagsalita kung paano siya makipaglaban.

"Tahimik po," sambit niya. "Kasi ‘pag tahimik ako, mas nakakapag-isip ako. Mas masasabi ko yung tamang salita na dapat kong sabihin. Nag-iisip muna ako dahil ayokong may pagsisihan ako bandang huli."

Tinanong ni Boy si Judy Ann kung ano ang naging epekto ng boyfriend niyang si Ryan Agoncillo pagdating sa laban niya sa buhay.

"Nagtatanong ako sa kanya kung tama pa ba ang posisyon ko. Tama pa ba yung pinaglalaban ko? Tama pa ba ang pinaninindigan ko? Nakikinig naman ako," sagot niya.

Pagkatapos nito ay diretsahan nang tinanong ni Boy sina Juday at Claudine sa nababalitang isnaban nila sa shoot at pictorial ng kanilang Pantene commercial. Bukod dito ay sina Judy Ann at Claudine kais ang palaging pinagtatapat ng kanilang mga tagahanga kaya hindi maiwasan na maintriga sila.

Ayon kay Juday, "Kahit naman nung bata pa kami Claudine, hindi naman talaga kami nagkaroon ng away. Yung mga tao lang sa paligid namin ang nag-aaway lang siguro. Pero kami mismo, hindi man kami nagkaroon ng chance na maging close kasi hindi naman kami nagkatrabaho, wala talaga.

"There was never a time na nag-away kami," patuloy niya. "Nagkikita kami sa mga parties, ganyan. Pero wala talaga. Kahit sa shoot namin, na-meet ko si Sabina, na-meet ko si Santino... Masaya ako for Claudine kasi ang saya-saya ng pamilya niya. Natutuwa ako para sa kanya."

Sabi naman ni Claudine, "Wala talaga. Wala kaming problema ni Juday. Ako rin I'm very happy for her. I think siguro nandito na kami sa level ng buhay naming na masaya na kami. Ako may pamilya na, siya malapit na. And may mga anak na ako, may anak na rin siya.

"And siguro, we're more mature now. Kung dati hindi namin pinatulan, I don't see any reason kung bakit kailangan na ngayon pa patulan namin. I'm really happy na nagkatrabaho kami dito
[Pantene], kasi this is the first time talaga na magkasama kami. 'Eto na rin siguro ang pagkakataon na mas lalo kaming magkakakilala pa para magkaroon kami ng mas malalim na friendship na hindi nabuo noon dahil sa intriga," pahayag niya.

DAUGHTER of William and Yayo Filed "Acts of Lasciviousness" Charges Against BARON GEISLER

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Nagsampa ng reklamo si William Martinez at ang kanilang 21-anyos na anak ni Yayo Aguila na si Patricia laban sa young actor na si Baron Geisler dahil sa "acts of lasciviousness."

Ayon sa report ng TV Patrol, nagpunta ang pamilya Martinez sa tanggapan ni Superintendent Sotera Macatangay sa PNP Women and Children's Desk sa Camp Crame, Quezon City upang isampa ang reklamo laban kay Baron.

Sa isa pang panayam kay William, sinabi ng aktor na hinawakan diumano ni Baron ang dibdib ng kanyang anak at niyaya itong "makipag-sex" sa kanya. Ayon kay William, nasa isang bar daw sa Quezon City ang kanyang anak kasama ng mga kaibigan nito nang mangyari ang insidente. Lasing daw si Baron noong mga oras na ‘yon.

Nilinaw ni William na ang kanyang anak mismo ang gustong magsampa ng reklamo laban kay Baron.

Ayon kay William, "Ilang araw na umiiyak ang anak ko. Na-trauma siya. Ang anak ko mismo ang gustong lumaban.

"Sinabihan ko na siya [Baron]. When he is drunk, ginagawa niya lagi 'yan. Kaibigan siya ng asawa ko, kaibigan ko siya. This is the only way for him to learn his lesson. Not just him but the other men who do things like this."

Nagkasama si Baron at ang misis ni William na si Yayo Aguila nang pareho silang maging housemates sa second edition ng Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition.


Samantala, nag-deny naman si Baron sa akusasyon na ito ni William at ni Patricia, sinabi nyang hinde totoong hinipuan at binastos nya ang dalaga.

Narito ang kanyang kabuuang sagot:



Filipina Actress MARIFE NECESITO in 'Love Triangle' with Two Hollywood Stars

Posted by JED on Sunday, April 27, 2008 , under | comments (0)



Filipina actress Marife Necesito has a breakout role in the scorching domestic drama "Mammoth", a film that includes Hollywood stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Michelle Williams.

"Mammoth" is directed by critically-acclaimed Swedish director Lukas Moodysson. Moodyson is a winner of the Guldbagge Award (the Swedish counterpart to the US Oscar Awards) for Best Director.

Moodysson's film is about a love triangle between a businessman (Bernal), his wife (Williams) and the nanny (Necesito).

Moddyson also directed and produced Memphis Films' "Dogville" starring Nicole Kidman and Bjork"s "Dance in the Dark."

Necesito is not a superstar in the Philippines, but she is a respected actress on stage, film and television productions. Necesito passed a rigorous audition to bag the plum role.

Necesito bested other respected local actresses in the "Mammoth" tryouts, including Alessandra de Rossi, Chinchin Gutierrez, Joyce Jimenez and even seasoned theater and screen thespian Pinky Amador.


KIM CHIU Celebrates Her 18th Birthday

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



As a showbiz fan growing up in Cebu, Kimberly Sue Yap Chiu used to watch her favorite stars celebrate their birthdays only in their home television. Back then, the pretty chinita could only wonder how it feels like to celebrate one's foray into womanhood in grand fashion.

Last night, April 26, the 2006 Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition big winner finally tasted how sweet such moment is for any young lady.

Joined by her ABS-CBN family and close relatives, Kim Chiu celebrated her 18th birthday at the classy Glass Garden in Pasig City.

For the special occasion, Kim's friends and showbiz colleagues, particularly the young Star Magic stars, came in full force to celebrate with the debutant.

It was indeed a grand celebration right from the start complete with red carpet treatment for all the guests. At exactly 8:50 in the evening, Kim, who was donning a baby pink hued gown, descended from the majestic staircase-leaving everyone inside the venue in awe.

Waiting for Kim was her father, Mr. William Chiu, who took the honor of accompanying his lovely daughter to the podium.

In an earlier interview, Kim's father said that he is still not fond with the idea of his daughter accepting suitors, much more having a boyfriend at this point.

"‘Wag muna ngayon," he openly opposed, "Hanapbuhay muna. Padamihan muna pera niya bago magpaligaw. Madali lang ‘yang ligaw 'pag madami ka nang pera."

In a tender moment between father and daughter, Mr. Chiu served as Kim's first and only formal cotillion dance for the evening.

The evening of course would not be complete without Kim's love team partner Gerald Anderson. Kim and Gerald first met in Pinoy Big Brother where they first displayed their good chemistry. After their PBB stint, Kim and Gerald instantly became one of the most popular young love teams as proven by the success of the teleserye Sana Maulit Muli and the their first lead team up movie, I've Fallen For You.

Kim and Gerald will soon be seen in the local adaptation of the hit Korean telenovela, My Girl.

Now that Kim is already 18, is Gerald thinking of seriously pursuing his screen partner to make their reel romance real?

"Naku depende po sa kanya kung gusto niya. Pero 18, dapat puwede na," beamed Gerald, totally oblivious on the comments made by Kim's father.

But what made the evening extra special for the celebrant was the presence of her relatives, which is a rare occurrence according to the young star due to geographical distance and schedule conflicts.

"Minsan hindi talaga sila nakukumpleto. Ngayon lang dahil birthday ko, sabi pa nga nung ibang auntie ko na nandirito hindi daw sila makakapunta. Dalawa lang daw sa kanila kasi may ginagawa daw sila 'tsaka ‘yong iba nagbakasyon kaya naintindihan ko naman kasi lagi naman kaming ganun," explained Kim.

Overwhelmed with the support given by her home network, Kim was reduced to tears while giving out her message.

"Thank you dahil binigyan ninyo 'ko ng ganito kalaki at ganitong kaengrandeng debut na hindi ako makapaniwala na magkakaroon ako ng ganito. Dati pinapanood ko lang siya sa TV pero ngayon ako na ýong nagdi-debut," she said, unable to control her emotion. Drowned by the applause of all her guests and well-wishers, Kim humbly punctuated her message by saying once more, "Thank you... thank you so much."

Kim's debut, aptly titled My Girl Turns 18, will be telecast on May 4 at 9:30 pm on ABS-CBN.

PIOLO PASCUAL Nagbigay ng P300K sa Pamilya ng Na-comang Production Staff

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Any act of charity ay hindi na ipinagmamakaingay by the donor himself, let his good deed speak for itself.

Never before written in recent past ang kahanga-hangang gawaing kawanggawa ni Piolo Pascual. Ayon sa aming source, isang kasamahan ng aktor sa produksyon from among the lowliest of lowly ang kamakaila’y inatake ng sakit.

Ang biktima, na isang lalake, na hindi naman madalas umano makatrabaho ni Piolo, slipped into coma. Realizing that the victim’s family would appreciate financial aid, hindi man cash ay itsineke na lang daw ni Piolo ang halagang pantulong.

Ang halaga lang naman ng tseke ay tumataginting na P300,000!

ANNABELLE RAMA's "3 DONT'S" to RICHARD GUTIERREZ

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Tawa na lamang nang tawa si Richard Gutierrez nang makausap ng press pagkatapos niyang mag-sign ng two-year guaranteed contract sa GMA Network last Friday, April 25, sa Boardroom ng GMA Network Center. Ang mga tanong kasi sa kanya ay maagap na sinasagot ng ina at manager niyang si Annabelle Rama, tungkol man sa career o love life niya.

Sa kabila ng pagiging napakabait na anak ni Richard, ano ba ang puwedeng ikagalit ni Annabelle dito kung sakali?

"Tatlong bagay lamang iyon: Iyong mag-drugs, kahit sino sa mga anak ko, hindi ko matatanggap na mag-drugs sila, ikamamatay ko iyon. Ayaw ko rin na lagi siyang nagmu-motor, sabi ko sa kanya, kung gusto niyang mamatay ako agad, sige sumakay siya nang sumakay sa kanyang Ducati. Hindi talaga ako mapalagay kapag nalaman kong nag-motor siya. Kaya kapag alam kong magmu-motor siya, pinasasabayan ko siya sa sasakyan ko, para kung may mangyari sa kanya, masasaklolohan siya agad. Isa pa na hindi ko matatanggap, iyong mag-asawa siya nang maaga. Siguro, kapag 30 years old na siya, puwede na [Richard turned 24 last January 21].

"Lagi kong ipinaaalaala sa kanya at sa iba pa niyang kapatid na lalaki, na magsawa muna sila sa pagkabinata. Mahirap iyong mag-aasawa sila nang maaga ‘tapos ay maghihiwalay din. Kaya sabi ko sa kanila, i-enjoy lamang nila ang pagiging binata nila. Dapat pumili sila ng girlfriend na hindi palamunin, kaya dapat ang kukunin nila iyong nagtatrabaho rin para tulong sila sa buhay.

"Hindi ako nahihiyang sabihan silang gumamit ng condom at iyong babae, sabihan nilang mag-pills. At hindi pa naman kami nag-away ni Richard tungkol sa babae. Hindi ko siya pinakikialaman pero kapag nalaman ko kung sino ang nililigawan niya, sinasabihan ko siya na huwag siyang magseryoso dahil wala siyang future sa girl.

"Kahit si Ruffa ngayon, sinasabihan ko siya na pumili siya ng tamang lalaki na magpapakain sa kanila ng mga anak niya. Ayaw kong pumili siya ng milyonaryo pero paiiyakin lamang pala siya."
