Heto ang sagot ni Richard “Ewan ko d’yan. Classmate ko sa UP ‘yan, eh. Eh ‘yun talaga ang karakter ko, di ba? But that has nothing to do with my being an actor or a director.“Tita Chato [Charito Solis] and Maricel [Soriano] are like that, and so are [Ishmael] Bernal and [Joel] Lamangan. If you can’t take these kind of people, then go look for another job. ‘Di ba?”
Tatlong beses naka-trabaho ni direk Cathy si Richard noong AD pa siya at ito’y sa mga pelikulang Maalaala Mo Kaya: The Movie, Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin, at Minsan, Minahal Kita ng Star Cinema.
Takot si direk na baka akusahan siyang ginagamit ang isyu sa kanila ni Richard para pag-usapan ang John Lloyd-Sarah Geronimo movie, pero sinagot lang daw niya ang tanong. Saka, siya ang tipo ng tao na hindi nagsisinungaling at ‘di binabawi ang nasabi na. Feeling niya, hindi na rin siya gugustuhing makatrabaho ng actor.
Ogie asked Direk Cathy, "Sino ang ayaw mo munang makatrabaho kasi ayaw mo nang ugali o ayaw mo ng attitude sa set?"
"Sa lahat po ng mga artistang nakasama ko na, wala po. Pero merong nakasama ko bilang AD [assistant director], si Richard Gomez, and I will never work with him again. Noong AD ako, oo, masyado akong nasaktan sa kanya and I am not ready to work with him yet. And I think he doesn't want to work with me, so okay lang." Direk Cathy replied.
Direk Cathy then recall what was really transpired that time, "Nag-ugat ito noong panahon na assistant direktor pa lamang ako. Naipon lang with the way he treated my staff, my director, and myself. So, hindi lang personal.
It was a very small ano... feeling ko nga hindi alam ni Richard na nasaktan niya ako, e. Siguro lang at that point, hindi rin kami ganun ka-close para matanong ko, kasi kung nagkataong si John Lloyd ang nagsabi sa akin noon tatanungin ko.
First incident was happened when we were doing the movie Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin (1997). There was one sequence lang na I remember in the movie with Lorna [Tolentino]. Nagkakasakit na 'yong script continuity namin because of fear kay Richard. Natatakot sa kanya, nagkakasakit na, parang psychosomatic illness, parang she gets nightmares from Richard, ganyan.
Tapos ako, noong ako ang nagbibigay ng continuity sa kanya, he shouted at me in front of everybody, but I got so embarrassed.
After that, iniisip ko, siguro ginawa akong motivation nitong taong ito kasi 'yong eksena, 'yon 'yong sinisigawan niya si Lorna at ang role niya sa movie, e, masungit, bugnutin. Sabi ko, ‘Kaya siguro.'"
Although, they were able to talk and reconcile before the shoot ended but another incident happened again with them during the shoot of the movie Minsan, Minahal Kita noong in 2000.
"Natapos 'yon, e, kasi nagbati ulit kami. But after that [in the movie Minsan, Minahal Kita], I just remembered something na parang... Meron kaming eksena na parang tinawag niya 'yong PM [production manager] ko, 'tapos sinabi niya, ‘Alam mo 'yang si Cathy, wala 'yang alam, e.' So, when I heard that, it was a friend who told me, sabi ko lang, sana if it was a conversation of ‘What do you think of Cathy?,' then, okay lang.
That statement was an out of the blue thing, so sabi ko, ‘Bakit naman?' parang ganun. So, hindi talaga ako galit, but it's something na hindi ko nai-discuss sa kanya ever because after that, last day namin ' yon, e, we parted ways and we never saw each other again. Since then, hindi pa kami nagkita ulit."
She added, "Alam niyo naman si Richard, e, mayroon talaga siyang... Siguro nga part of his motivation [for the role], but not all people understand, e."
Is she willing to direct Richard in her next movie?, "I am always willing to direct people who are willing to be directed. So, for actors na gusto magpa-direct, ide-direct ko sila. Takot lang ako sa mga artistang ang alam lang nila magagaling na sila."
The news that Kris Aquino and James Yap were about to break up originated from “K Text”. According to one subscriber of the text service, Kris Aquino herself was giving updates about the status of her relationship with James. She even divulged the fact that they are undergoing a marriage counseling.
According to reports, the argument between Kris and James started when Kris accepted the offer to appear on Ai Ai delas Alas‘ upcoming movie “Ang Tanging Ina Ninyong Lahat” without consulting her husband. Apparently, James has a grudge against the comedy concert queen because during the time of the James-Hope Centeno controversy, Ai Ai said a joke to Kris saying, “Isoli mo muna si James sa nanay niya.”

The announcement of the show's hosts was made by Paula M. Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization, published on the official Miss Universe website www.missuniverse.com.
Jerry Springer, host for 17 seasons of the hit talk show "The Jerry Springer Show," as well as "America's Got Talent," boasts a resume that includes such diverse roles as: Mayor of Cincinnati, lawyer, newscaster, country recording artist, international emcee, author, talk-radio broadcaster and ballroom dancer on the show "Dancing with the Stars."
His popularity has also led him to be guest-speaker at college campuses across the United States. Springer has also added a Broadway appearance to his list of achievements, starring for a week in the production of the "Rocky Horror Show Live."
"This is obviously a great honor and getting to work alongside Mel B makes it even better," said Springer.
Melanie Brown, better known as Mel B, has made her mark as a singer, actress, producer, designer and TV personality. Mel B became a household name as "Scary Spice," one of the members of the iconic girl group the Spice Girls.
She has appeared in numerous TV specials, shows and films as well as on Broadway in the hugely successful musical "Rent." Mel B is currently working on her third solo album, slated for release in early 2009.
Her newest project, "The Singing Office," will premiere on TLC later this month, with Mel serving as Executive Producer and Co-Host.
She was also a finalist on the fifth season of "Dancing with the Stars". She has since become a special events correspondent for "Access Hollywood."
"I’m thrilled to be a co-host of the Miss Universe Pageant," said Mel B.
"I believe the diversity and dedication that the pageant brings inspires and empowers young women across the globe," she said.
Each contestant, representing 80 countries from around the world, will be judged in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview as they vie for the coveted title of Miss Universe 2008.
The Miss Universe show is an internationally celebrated event with distribution in more than 170 countries.
Japan native, Riyo Mori, Miss Universe 2007 will crown her successor at the conclusion of the telecast.
During her reign, Mori traveled the world as an advocate for HIV/AIDS education, research, and legislation. The newly crowned Miss Universe will go on to do the same.
Donald J. Trump and Phil Gurin of The Gurin Company will again serve as Executive Producers for Miss Universe 2008.
Carmina even jokingly argued with Wowowee host Willie Revillame about her being a Kapuso when she guested on the show last Saturday to promote Colgate's new TV promo where she and her kids are model-endorser.

"Bigyan Naman Natin Yung Iba ng Chance." - ANGEL LOCSIN on FHM 100 Sexiest Controversy with MARIAN RIVERA
"Ewan ko po. Hindi naman po natin kontrolado, ‘di ba? Kung sino ang mananalo, kung sino ang iboboto ng mga tao? Basta ako, masaya ako. Parang ano yun, e, parang kailangan ba kunin ko lahat?
Nagawa ko na ‘yan [being hailed as the Philippines' sexiest] even before pa. Parang, bigyan naman natin yung iba ng chance, ‘di ba?"
Hindi ba niya inaambisyong maging number one ulit sa FHM?
"Hindi na. Para sa akin mas importante yung mga taong naniniwala sa akin. Mas may importansya sa akin."
Pero okey lang ba sa kanya kung si Marian ang hiranging number one sa sexiest list ng FHM Philippines?
"Okay lang. Kaya natawa lang ako kasi feeling ko wala namang isyu, at sa kanya, hindi rin naman isyu yun. Parang nakakatuwa lang na yung mga fans ang talagang ano sa aming dalawa. Pero salamat po sa lahat ng bumoto," pagtatapos ni Angel.
"Ke Number 1 or 99, Masaya Na Ako." - MARIAN RIVERA on FHM 100 Sexiest Controversy With ANGEL LOCSIN
Kinukuwestiyon ng fans ni Angel kung bakit biglang bumaba sa No. 4 ang kanilang idol samantalang ang young actress daw ang nasa No. 1 noon. Ayon pa sa kanila, mina-manipulate diumano ng FHM ang resulta ng botohan para paboran ang iba pang mga kandidato, partikular na si Marian Rivera. Si Marian na raw kasi ang nangunguna sa pagsasara ng botohan
"Sa totoo lang, surprised kami nung una pa lang na sinabi na nasa Top 10, and then Top 5, and then Top 3. Kasi hindi pa nga siya [Marian] nagku-cover. She has never appeared on FHM. In fairness, FHM has invited us ever since nasa TAPE Inc. pa lang si Marian. Lagi naming sinasabi...we never said never.
"Kasi yung first time niyang lumabas sa FHM, yung mga 100 Sexiest, I think No. 38 or something. And then, last year, she was No. 24 yata... So ngayon, biglang nag-Top 10. Nabigla kami kasi alam namin, ang madaming boto lagi, yung nagku-cover lang. So yun pa lang, pleasantly surprised na kami.
"Nung sinasabi nilang, ‘Uy, vying siya for the top position,' ang sinasabi lang naman namin is sana mag-No. 1. Pero we doubt, kasi never pa nga siyang nagku-cover.
"Pero ngayon ngang may ganyang lumalabas, siyempre hindi na namin masyadong... We cannot react, e. Kasi unang-una, FHM has not called me. Hindi naman nila sinabi sa akin na, ‘Oy, Popoy, No.1 si Marian.' Wala namang ganun, di ba? Kung totoo ngang No. 1 siya, at least man lang sana, may nagsabi sa amin," lahad ng talent manager ni Marian na si Popoy Caritativo.
Ayon naman kay Marian, "Alam mo, ke number one o 99, masaya na ako na ‘andami palang bumuboto.' Knowing lang na hindi pa ako nag-a-appear ‘tapos ‘andami nang bumuboto, I'm very happy about it already. Yung top position, bonus na lang kung makuha ko man."
Check out her interview to see what a day in the life of Vanessa is like and what her and boyfriend Zac Efron are really like.
Newsweek also did a stupid interview with Vanessa. (It’s the same interviewer who was completely unprofessional with Clay Aiken.) Here are some excerpts:
“HSM” director Kenny Ortega once told me you and Zac Efron started dating on the first “High School Musical,” and I don’t think I’ve ever heard that story. And I’m going to keep it that way.
You’re not going to tell me? No. Only because I don’t want to talk about it. It might hurt the relationship. That’s something I have to myself.
So, is it hard to go on dates? No. We do what we want.
Are the reports true that Zac doesn’t like to shower? That’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Whoever came up with that is completely idiotic.
Because when I met him, he smelled perfectly fine. He showers! He showers! Believe me, he does.
Every day? Yes! Of course.

Bernadette and Orange exchanged vows last June 12 in Nasugbu, Batangas. The Philippines’ Day of Independence has become quite significant day for the couple since the event paved the way for their paths to cross. Bernadette covered the Independence Day celebration in Kawit, Cavite two years ago and this was where she met Orange. The following year, she was again assigned to report on the event and once again bumped into Orange, who was then elected as Kawit’s vice-mayor. Their love story began and the couple feels that Emilio Aguinaldo, the first President of the Philippines, has blessed them in every way.
With a Filipiniana motif, the wedding was attended by the couple’s family and close friends. After the reception at Sonya’s Garden in Cavite, the newly-wed couple then went straight to San Francisco California to celebrate their honeymoon.
Bea - 6.40
Iñaki - 6.17
Laarni - 5.17
It’s now up to the viewing public who among Iñaki and Laarni will stay for another week and who will be expelled from the Pinoy Dream Academy.

Aside from a simple birthday celebration on his natal day, Lloydy is also elated to be receiving a Best Actor award from the Golden Screen Awards for his role in One More Chance. “It’s a very wonderful gift for my birthday. They’re going to award it on my birthday so pagbalik ko sa party dala ko na yung award. Masarap yung pakiramdam,” he shared.
Last June 20, Lloydy had a birthday presscon wherein the former teen actor also clarified the rumors that he was making marriage plans with longtime girlfriend Liz Uy. “Definitely not. Kasi I'd like to think na pareho kaming nasa peak (ng career) namin ngayon. Hindi pa kami willing mag-compromise,” he explained.
Immediately after the presscon, John Lloyd went to Porac, Pampanga to be with some Aetas for his advanced birthday celebration. "First time ko pumunta dito and ang saya. Ang saya kasi first time in my life na nakahalubilo ko ang mga kababayan natin dito,” he said.
Lloydy also shared his thoughts on Sarah Geronimo’s reaction to being paired up with him in the upcoming movie A Very Special Love. “Bago sa kanya ‘to eh. Siyempre, bilang mas nakakatanda, mas may experience ako pagdating sa loveteam at paggawa ng pelikula. Siguro dahil dun kaya mas nininerbiyos siya o hindi siya mapalagay. But I can tell you, it’s getting better everyday. Yung working relationship namin as friends,” he emphasized on Entertainment Live.
The last two Sineseryes have brought the hottest comebacks on television. In Patayin Sa Sindak Si Barbara, Kris Aquino made her second teleserye opposite the original Barbara herself, Susan Roces. In Maligno, Claudine Barretto returned to television after settling down and becoming a mother to two children. As the third installment of the Sinesrye, Florinda will pave the way for Maricel to once again showcase her caliber as one of the brightest actresses in the industry.
Patayin Sa Sindak Si Barbara and Maligno also changed the landscape of teleseryes as it brought horror to the primetime block which was mostly dominated by heavy dramas and romantic comedies. Keeping the tradition of fright, followers of Sineserye Presents: The Susan Roces Cinema Collection can expect the concluding part Florinda to be the most hair-raising and heart-thumping experience yet.
Prepare to be scared for the third time as Florinda debuts soon on ABS-CBN 2.
