PBB Teen Edition Plus House Player SHY and Ex-PBB Teen Housemate GERALD ANDERSON Steamy Past

Posted by JED on Saturday, May 10, 2008 , under | comments (4)



PBB Teen Edition Plus house player Shy (Farina Runkle in real life) seems to be the biggest kontrabida this time of the year, especially to the Kimerald love tandem.

Shy was one of the the Top 20 in GMA-7's StarStruck 4th Season. Gerald Anderson has been interviewed in the past about this issue but he answered that there we're no relationship at all, they're just MU. Huh? Really?

Read below's PEP interview with Gerald on December 2006:

Ang kontrobersiyal na pictures nila ng sinasabing ex-girlfriend niya na si Farina Runkle ang unang tinanong ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Gerald Anderson kaninang tanghali, December 20, sa pocket press con ng teleseryeng Sana Maulit Muli sa 9501 resto sa ABS-CBN.

Si Farina ang girl na katabi, kayakap, at kahalikan ni Gerald sa mga larawan na kumalat sa Internet last week. Ang sabi-sabi ay naging girlfriend ni Gerald si Farina, na kasama sa mga nag-audition sa StarStruck The Next Level ng GMA-7. Napili si Farina sa Top 20 girls, pero hindi na pumasok sa Final 10 girls.

"Naging close lang po kami nu'ng nagkasama kami sa auditions ng PBB [Pinoy Big Brother] Teen Edition, nu'ng bago ako pumasok sa 'bahay ni Kuya,'" simulang pahayag ni Gerald.

"Parang papunta pa lang po kami roon [sa boyfriend-girlfriend relationship], pero hindi po naging kami. Siguro, parang MU [mutual understanding] lang... Tapos po, parang medyo nag-iba po siya nu'ng napili ako at siya hindi. Ewan ko po sa kanya kung bakit," bulalas ni Gerald in his signature Tagalog, na may pinaghalong English-Visayan accent.

Kung hindi sila naging magsyota e bakit ganu'n ka-sweet ang pictures nila? Magkaibigan lang ba yung nagli-lips-to-lips?

"Ay hindi po, hindi po talaga!" mariin niyang tanggi. "Kung naging girlfriend ko po siya, aaminin ko po. Nagulat nga po ako paglabas ko ng bahay ni kuya na may mga pictures na gano'n."

Sabi pa ng PBB Teen Edition 2nd runner-up na inila-loveteam ngayon sa grand winner na si Kim Chiu, "Pero okey lang po sa akin. Alam ko naman po ang totoo e."

Ang dating ng isyung ‘yon sa marami ay ginagamit lang siya ni Farina para pag-usapan ito at mapansin. Anong comment niya rito?

"Gawin niya kung anong gusto niyang gawin, okey lang sa akin. Basta alam ko naman ang totoo e. Alam ko naman na hindi talaga naging kami," bulalas niya.

Sa paglabas ni Farina ng mga pictures, sinabi ng 17-year-old Fil-Am bagest, "Parang mali po ‘yon, pero anong magagawa ko e lumabas na, ‘di ba? Pero kahit may pictures po na gano'n, hindi po talaga naging kami. Kung naging ex ko po siya, aaminin ko naman."

Ayon kay Gerald ay mga one-and-a-half months silang nagkakilala ni Farina at mga three weeks din silang naging close. Hindi raw siya sanay sa pangalan na Farina dahil ‘Sharleen' daw ang tawag niya rito noon. (Sharleen Farina Runkle ang complete name ni Farina.)

Agree ba siya na ginagamit lang siya ni Farina para mapag-usapan ito?

"Hindi naman po. Ayoko naman pong sabihin ‘yon. Ewan ko kung anong gusto niyang gawin," sabi ni Gerald.

Aniya pa, may nakapagsabi sa kanya na nu'ng nasa loob siya ng PBB house ay doon inilagay ni Farina ang controversial pictures nila sa Friendster account nito.

Mula nang pumasok siya hanggang sa makalabas ng bahay ni kuya ay hindi na raw niya nakausap si Farina. At kahit ngayon na may kumalat na ganitong isyu ay wala pa rin daw siyang balak hanapin at kausapin si Farina.

"Hindi na po. Kasi ayoko na po e. At saka yun nga po, nag-iba na siya. So bakit ko siya kakausapin kung ayaw niya, ‘di ba?" sagot niya.

"Okey na po ‘yon sa akin. Matagal na po ‘yon e. Nu'ng nasa bahay ni kuya pa ako, pinasok pa ‘yon [pictures] sa loob at ipinakita sa amin, so okey lang," dagdag pa ng binata.

Kita sa nasabing larawan na mariin ang pagkakahalik niya sa labi ni Farina at tipong feel na feel niya ang ginagawa nila. At hindi pala siya wholesome, ha?

"Hindi po, hindi po ganu'n!" tawa niya, na tipong nagba-blush at nahihiya sa pang-iintriga namin sa kanya.


"Ako po kasi, ayokong mambastos ng babae. May gusto siya sa akin. Ako rin, gusto ko rin siya noon. Hindi naman ako makikipag-kiss sa girl kung wala akong gusto sa kanya, 'di ba?" hirit niya.

So, hanggang kiss lang ba sila?

"Opo!" sagot niya, na-shy effect pa rin at payuko-yuko at pailing-iling.

Natuwa ba siya na hindi nakapasok sa Final 10 female survivors ng StarStruck The Next Level si Farina?

"Hindi naman po. Happy ako sa kanya na nakasali siya roon. Pero hindi naman po ako natutuwa na na-eliminate siya. Okey lang po sa akin
. Siguro may dahilan kung bakit siya natanggal or something," sabi ni Gerald.

Nang biruin namin ang young actor na baka ngayon ay may bago na naman siyang girlfriend na any moment ay puwedeng maglabas ng intimate pictures nila, mabilis na "Ay, wala po!" ang naging tugon niya.

"Wala akong girlfriend now. 100% sure po ako! Kung may pictures po ako ulit na lalabas, siguro kahit na anong gusto n'yong gawin sa akin, gawin n'yo na! Pero 100% sure po ako na wala," tila naghahamong sambit pa ni Gerald.

This old photos and video of Gerald Anderson and Shy have been brought up again, for what reason?. Seems like Kuya is really getting out of control...wake up Kimerald fans out there. (In your...) Dream, Believe (it!, or not!), Survive (at least even the on-screen romance of Kim Chiu and Gerald).



Goodluck, My Girl!

REGINE VELASQUEZ in a Weekly Musical Show 'SONGBIRD'

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez will mesmerize late-night viewers with her amazing vocal prowess through her own musical show aptly titled 'Songbird'.

Songbird is a weekly musical show where Regine will sing some of the most popular songs and compositions of some of the world's best singers and composers. This will start airing on May 15, Thursday, after the Telebabad block of GMA-7.

"
I'm very thankful to GMA-7 for trusting me, for giving me the opportunity to do what I love to do most, which is singing. I've always dreamed of having a show like this and I feel very, very blessed na ibinigay po ng GMA sa akin itong napakagandang show na talaga naman pong pinagkakaabalahan ng aming buong staff and crew," Regine began during the press conference of Songbird held last night, May 9, at Melo's restaurant on Bohol Ave., Quezon City.

SHOW CONCEPT.
"
Nakakatuwa po siya, kasi thematic po siya," Regine told the entertainment press. "Every week, there's a different theme, we feature different artists, songwriters, genre; we even do movie themes. So every week is different. We also have different guests for each week depending on what theme ang meron sa week na ‘yon. Ibinabagay rin po namin ang aming guests."

"Tapos yung kine-cater pa namin siyempreng market, medyo late na, so siyempre yung music na maririnig mo, hindi naman yung pumapalahaw-palahaw ako na magigising ka. Hindi naman ganun. So magagandang kanta lang talaga ang madidinig mo... Mga [Barbra] Streisand, we will feature [Barry] Manilow. We're going to feature siyempre mga OPM [Original Pilipino Music] din, mga OPM songs, writers, and composers."

For each episode, the Asia's Songbird will be singing seven to eight songs. "
And then minsan, meron kaming medley na about five minutes, ganyan. Para siyang concert talaga," Regine added.

SONGBIRD STAGE.
Aside from the unique concept of Songbird, Regine is also very proud of her show's stage design.

"
Well, napakaganda ng stage! Pinagkaabalahan ang stage, hi-tech ang stage. Pangmayaman!" she said laughing. "Nagulat nga ako, e. Hindi, natuwa nga ako, e, kasi when we were meeting for this show, in-explain nila sa akin na this is what's going to happen, na ito yung magiging hitsura ng stage... Actually nung nag-taping na kami, nung first taping day, naiiyak ako kasi parang, ‘Ah, may budget ang show, pinagkaabalahan. Hindi napunta lahat sa talent fee ko!'" Regine laughed again.

THE GUEST LIST.
Regine also revealed that she has a hand in choosing her guest list.

"
Usually, ako nga ang pinapapili nila kung sino ang gusto kong guests, depende sa concept," she said.

One of Regine's guests on the pilot episode of Songbird is
Richard Gomez, her leading man in the movie Pangarap Ko ang Ibigin Ka and the drama series Forever In My Heart.



Songbird will have its pilot episode on Thursday, May 15, after GMA Telebabad.

KUNG FU PANDA Movie Trailer

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Enthusiastic, big and a little clumsy, Po is the biggest fan of Kung Fu around...which doesn't exactly come in handy while working every day in his family's noodle shop. Unexpectedly chosen to fulfill an ancient prophecy, Po's dreams become reality when he joins the world of Kung Fu and studies alongside his idols, the legendary Furious Five -- Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey -- under the leadership of their guru, Master Shifu. But before they know it, the vengeful and treacherous snow leopard Tai Lung is headed their way, and it's up to Po to defend everyone from the oncoming threat. Can he turn his dreams of becoming a Kung Fu master into reality? Po puts his heart - and his girth - into the task, and the unlikely hero ultimately finds that his greatest weaknesses turn out to be his greatest strengths.


Deal or No Deal Around the World - Philippine Episode

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



The Deal or No Deal Around The World, a special international edition of the popular Endemol game show, has featured the Philippines on its first leg. The two-hour episode follows Mike Levy of Baltimore, Maryland and Patrick Hook of Roberts, Wisconsin as they try their luck at becoming millionaires with US host Howie Mandel and Philippine counterpart Kris Aquino.

The two American contestants will play the game Philippine style and try their luck in winning the cash prize, US dollar equivalent of the Philippine amounts on the leaderboard.

During Mandel’s four-day visit to Manila, he was coached by local host Kris Aquino to say a few lines in Filipino. They also talked about Cory Aquino and the late Ninoy Aquino who happens to be Kris’ parents.

Additionally, Mandel was accompanied by the 26K Girls, the Philippine counterpart of the briefcase models, as he visited Quiapo, Manila and also drove a pedicab around the compound of ABS-CBN, home of the Philippine version of Deal or No Deal. Mandel even tried working as a promo boy for a grocery store.

All these has apparently made the episode very interesting to watch, prompting NBC to air the Philippine episode ahead of two other countries.

'Kung Fu Panda' OST to be Performed by SAM CONCEPCION

Posted by JED on Wednesday, May 7, 2008 , under | comments (3)



Fifteen-year-old pop star and theater actor Sam Concepcion will be collaborating with Dreamworks and United International Pictures to sing the theme song of their newest animated comedy, Kung Fu Panda. This makes Sam the first Filipino to work with Dreamworks for this project.


"Sam Concepcion has been chosen to sing the theme song 'Kung Fu Fighting' for the Philippine release of the Dreamworks-United International Pictures Kung Fu Panda. It will be screened in the Philippines this June.

"Dito sa Pilipinas, yung particular track na iyon na papatugtugin sa credits, sa Sam ang kakanta. In addition to that, may kasama pa siyang music video, which will be directed by Marie Jamora," explains Oliver Oliveros, Senior Public Relations Officer/Consultant of STAGES.

"They had several artists in mind before tapos si Sam ang nakakuha ng part. For the region, iba-ibang artists ang kakanta ng 'Kung Fu Fighting,' which was originally released in 1974. Sam was asked to audition to make sure that Sam fits the role. His song will be used for the promo here in the Philippines."

Ceelo Green, an America hiphop/R&B artist, sings the theme song for the original U.S. Kung Fu Panda soundtrack. Korean pop icon Rain, best remembered by Filipino audiences in his drama series Full House, will also record the same song in his native language.

Kung Fu Panda is about Po the Panda (voiced by comedian Jack Black), a waiter in a noodle restaurant who is a kung-fu fanatic. The panda is considered as the laziest animal in ancient China's Valley of Peace. But through a sudden twist of fate, he is named as the "Chosen One" who must battle evil warrior Tai Lung (voiced by Ian McShane) who escapes from prison and threatens their way of life.

A kung-fu master named Shifu (voiced by Dustin Hoffman) helps Po the Panda by training him along with the legendary Furious Five. They include Master Monkey (voiced by Jackie Chan), Master Tigress (voiced by Angelina Jolie), Master Viper (voiced by Lucy Liu), Master Crane (voiced by David Cross), and Master Mantis (voiced by Seth Rogen).

Watch for Sam's new video for "Kung Fu Fighting" and the animated comedy Kung Fu Panda when it hits theaters this June.

BEA ALONZO Chosen to Play 'Betty La Fea'

Posted by JED on Tuesday, May 6, 2008 , under | comments (0)



Bea Alonso will play the lead role in ABS-CBN’s adaptation of the Mexican telenovela "Betty La Fea."

The confirmation was made by television director Wenn Deramas during Anne Curtis' first taping day for 'Dyosa' in Calatagan, Batangas.

"Yes, gagawin na nga 'yung Betty La Fea," said Deramas.

Deramas said he will be meeting today with other network officials to discuss the series.

"May meeting nga ako kasi gusto na nila na simulan 'yung Betty La Fea. Mayroon pang "Dyosa" kaya pag-iisipin ko din kung paano," Deramas added.

Betty La Fea is the story of a not-so-pretty but intelligent woman who falls in love with her boss and decides to have a makeover.

Prior to Deramas' confirmation that Alonso will play Betty La Fea, there were other actresses being considered for the role.

They were "Lobo" star Angel Locsin and "Maging Sino Ka Man" mainstay Anne Curtis.

Earlier reports had said singer Regine Velasquez was also considered for the series.

In February, Velasquez appeared on the entertainment show "The Buzz." She said she was the one who broached the idea to "someone" that she wanted to play the role of "Betty La Fea", or Ugly Betty, in the Philippine edition of the popular TV series. The show was first aired in Mexico and it later had a successful US version.

The singer said that her interest in doing "Betty La Fea" and her excitement over the subsequent offer from ABS-CBN first made her decide to say good-bye to GMA-7.

Velasquez emphasized that she was genuinely interested in doing the series. She pointed out that she would not have risked employment at GMA-7 and her good relations with the station if she was merely creating a ruse to get better terms for her new contract.

In the end, Velasquez decided to stay with GMA-7.

BATMAN: The Dark Knight - New Trailer

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)



A new trailer for The Dark Knight was released this past weekend, giving us a slightly bigger look into what is coming on July 18th.

While we’ve seen a lot of Heath Ledger‘s Joker, the latest trailer gave us a little more on Aaron Eckhart‘s Harvey Dent, who ultimately becomes Two-Face.

“I can tell you that, basically, when you look at Two-Face, you should get sick to your stomach,” Eckhart told the LA Times of his Two-Face appearance. Being the guy under all that, well, that was a lot of fun for me. It’s like you would feel if you met someone whose face had pretty much been ripped off or burned off with acid. I can’t talk about it beyond that because I don’t want to give away too much of the plans by Chris [Nolan].”

To me, this film is about how Batman feels about justice, how he takes care of the city, how he feels about the Joker when he meets him and sees what he is capable of doing. How he feels when Harvey Two-Face takes matters into his own hands. It’s not simple, and it gets ugly. I think people will be surprised.”

:: MARIAH CAREY is a VIBE Bikini Babe

Mariah Carey heats up the pages of Vibe in its June 2008 issue.

The inside photo spread features the 39-year-old diva modeling some of the season’s hottest swimwear, which was shot on-location on Eagle’s Landing, a private Caribbean island, where the mag joined the singer for her big 38th birthday bash.

For outtakes of Mariah’s cover shoot, visit Vibe.com.

Last week, Mariah tied the knot with actor Nick Cannon in the Bahamas.

It’s crazy right! We’re definitely happy. Well wishes!” said Gabriel, Nick’s brother. “I’m trying to be like him and I love him very much.”

Call her Mrs. Cannon!


:: KATE HUDSON at the Pinnacle of PEOPLE's Beautiful

Kate Hudson is cover girl of the People magazine’s issue containing its latest “Most Beautiful” list.

Editors chose Kate from among the 100 celebrities who made the list. Senior Editor Galina Espinoza says Kate “just embodies such an incredible natural beauty that is in vogue right now. We’ve gotten so accustomed to celebrities getting breast implants and nose jobs, and she will talk about being flat-chested and having a little bit of an offbeat look.”

I was a tomboy,” Kate tells People. “I had three brothers. I was the girl with the dress on that always came back in the house filthy with scrapes and bruises. But I was always very girly. I had to be able to twirl so that my underwear showed.”

Other celebs such as Salma Hayek, Carrie Underwood, Vanessa Hudgens, Rumer Willis, Jason Taylor, and the cast of the Gossip Girls populate the list.

:: TAYLOR SWIFT - "SEVENTEEN" June 2008

Taylor Swift graces the June 2008 cover of Seventeen, on newsstands May 6th. The 18-year-old singer/songwriter opened up to the mag about dealing with bad friendships, being cheated on and where she gets inspiration for her songs. Here are a few of the interview highlights:

On being famous in her hometown of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania: “I was actually playing a sold-out show in my hometown, and I was signing autographs afterward. And I saw those girls who didn’t invite me to their parties and didn’t invite me to hang out with them. They waited in line for three hours to say hi to me. That’s where I have to look at this situation and say, ‘We were kids.’ At some point, you have to forget about grudges because they only hurt.

On turning painful real-life situations into good songwriting: “Well, I wrote ‘Should’ve Said No,’ about a guy who cheated on me. There’s always that moment where you’re like, ‘He says he’s not gonna do it again, he says he’s sorry, and, oh, look how sorry he is!’ But they’re not sorry. If they cheated on you, then you didn’t matter enough for them to be thinking about you while it was happening. So what does it matter if he apologizes after the fact? And at some point, you realize that you do not deserve to be treated like that. I decided I didn’t want to be that girl.”

On why she’s proud to be unique: “Everybody looks in the mirror and is like, ‘I wonder why her eyes are huge and mine are smaller.’ But I realized that if you’re lucky enough to be different from everyone else, don’t change.”

:: RIHANNA Covers "ELLE" June 2008

Rihanna takes the June 2008 cover of Elle.

She addresses those pesky rumors about a romantic relationship with her and Jay-Z, who is married to Beyonce now!

RiRi says, “Well, it’s crazy that you ask me that. People know that it’s not true,” she says. “I think it’s kinda a cliche question, and people know it’s not true, so I don’t even know why it’s still addressed to this day. I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.”



:: JESSICA SIMPSON Glamorous on "GLAMOUR"

Jessica Simpson gushes about boyfriend Tony Romo in the new issue of Glamour, on newsstands next Tuesday.

This article could come out and Tony and I could be broken up, but he still deserves all the accolades for bringing me back to who I am,” Simpson said.

Jessica, 27, also talks about how worried she was when she met Tony, admitting she “wanted to puke in a cup holder” because she was so nervous.

And here’s a fun bit of Jessica addressing her acting: “It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?

Peet, who plays an FBI agent in the new X-Files movie, needed less than half an hour in hair and makeup, and then announced she’d be happy to wear anything, as long as there was a belt involved. “An outfit is so much cleaner when you can see your waist,” she explained.

“I’m not big into experimenting,” says the 36-year-old actress added. “Preppy works for me, and I stick with it.” And it’s true: She has a talent for combining classic, clean-cut items in a way that always looks great.

:: ASHLEE SIMPSON'S Bikini is in Grat "SHAPE"

With rumours circulating that Ashlee Simpson is pregnant, and everyone talking about her engagement to Pete Wentz, it's easy to forget that she has a new album out. It's easy to forget because no one cares about Ashlee Simpson's music. I know I definitely don't care about Ashlee's music, or whether she's pregnant or not, except that if she is, these Ashlee Simpson bikini pictures from Shape magazine might be the last time we see her looking this good.





:: JENNIFER ANISTON and JOHN MAYER'S Sexy Weekend

John Mayer is crazy about Jennifer Aniston. In Touch and US Weekly have the photos to prove it!

Mayer flew to Miami on April 23 and checked into the Four Seasons hotel, but that’s not where he spent most of his time!

The 30-year-old musician instead spent most of his time in the $3,000-a-night presidential suite at the Mandarin Oriental, where Aniston has been staying while shooting the movie Marley & Me.



The pair were inseparable over the long weekend, cuddling poolside and sharing meals together. They even had dinner together at Miami’s CafĂ© Sambal on Saturday, April 27.

When asked how he was doing, after spending four days with his new love, John smiled and said, “My weekend was good.”

DR. MANNY CALAYAN's Response to P26M Lawsuit Filed by Fil-Am LOUEM MARTINEZ

Posted by JED on , under | comments (5)



Fil-Am Louem Martinez, who undergone a penile enlargement operation at Calayan Surgicenter filed a P26-million against Dr. Manuel Calayan, who is known as “doctors-to-the stars”.

Martinez filed charges of estafa, reckless imprudence resulting in serious physical injuries and obstruction of justice against the Calayans before the Makati City Prosecutors Office (MCPO).

He is also seeking from the Calayans P20 million in actual damages and P6 million for moral and exemplary damages for the alleged injuries his private organ sustained after the operation last year.

The complainant said the "aqua gel" Manny inserted in his organ as "derma filler" did not result in the enlargement of it but instead caused severe deformity and pain.

Martinez filed charges of estafa, reckless imprudence resulting in serious physical injuries and obstruction of justice against the Calayans before the Makati City Prosecutors Office (MCPO).

He is also seeking from the Calayans P20 million in actual damages and P6 million for moral and exemplary damages for the alleged injuries his private organ sustained after the operation last year.

The Calayans denied the charges in the separate counter-affidavits they filed before Makati 3rd Assistant Prosecutor Dennis Rafa last Wednesday.

Dr. Mannny, who performed the operation, said he had sufficiently informed Martinez about the risks of the procedure and that he advised the patient to refrain from having sex until he recovers from the operation.

AIZA SEGUERRA to Record an Album in Singapore

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



Bago matapos ang taong ito ay baka ma-base sa Singapore si Aiza Seguerra dahil may nag-alok nga sa kanya na maging isang recording artist doon.

Ayaw pa ngang masyadong pag-usapan ni Aiza ang tungkol sa balitang ito dahil kasalukuyang inaayos pa lang ang lahat, kasama na roon ang materyales ng magiging first album niya na ire-release sa Asian market. Pero di pa rin nya napigilang magbigay ng konting impormasyon tungkol dito, "Hindi lang naman ako ang naiprisinta sa recording company sa Singapore. Marami rin kami na sinubukang pakinggan. Pinadalhan sila ng mga CDs namin at hinintay yung magiging sagot nila kung sino ang pumasa sa panlasa nila."

Nagulat nga raw si Aiza nang sabihin sa kanya na siya ang napili ng naturang recording company sa Singapore. Pinaghahanda na raw siya agad para sa recording ng album niya roon na may 13 songs ang laman.

"Mostly mga cover versions ang laman ng album. Nagustuhan daw nila ang boses ko at madali raw nila akong maima-market. Yun naman ang habol ko. Yung maka-penetrate sa Asian market ang album ko. So, nakakatuwa dahil matutupad na rin ang isa sa mga pangarap ko."

Nilinaw ni Aiza na wala siyang balak na tumira sa Singapore in case na ipatawag na siya roon. Mas gusto pa rin daw niya rito sa Pilipinas dahil nandito ang lahat ng mahal niya sa buhay. Kung mag-i-stay siya sa Singapore, baka ang pinakamatagal daw ay isang buwan lang.

"Doon siguro ang magiging work base ko, pero hindi ako titira roon," diin ni Aiza. "Nami-miss ko ang mga kaibigan ko rito lalo na ang pamilya ko. Ayokong malayo sa kanila. Kaya dito pa rin ako titira."

Walang regular na TV show ngayon si Aiza dahil mas gusto raw nito ang mga live gigs at ang paglabas sa teatro. Ayaw na raw niya yung maghintay sa set nang matagal.

"Time out muna ako sa mga TV shows. Maraming nasasayang na oras kapag matagal ang hintayan sa set. Mas gusto ko na itong mga live shows kasi after kang isalang, tapos na at uwian na. Kapag may regular show ka kasi, wala kang choice kundi maghintay hanggang madaling-araw.

"Sayang ang mga oras na dumadaan sa paghintay, ‘di ba? Marami ka pang puwedeng gawin na productive kesa sa naghihintay ka ng take sa iyo. Kaya pass muna ako sa mga TV shows."
