Richard Gutierrez-KC Concepcion, Suportado ng Fans ni Angel Locsin

Posted by JED on Thursday, August 7, 2008 , under | comments (0)

Ayon kay Irene Garde (taga-Modesto, California at head ng international fans club ni Angel Locsin), nag-usap na sila ng kanyang mga kasamahan at susuportahan nila ang For The First Time movie nina Ri­chard [Gutierrez] at KC [Concepcion].

Hindi nagustuhan ng fans ni Angel ang pang-iintriga ng iba sa Ri­chard-KC movie, kaya sila mismo ay susuporta­han ang pelikula.

Sabi ng fans ni Angel, hindi nila makakalimutan ang pagiging gentleman ni Richard pagdating sa kanilang idolo dahil never itong nagsalita ng against Angel kahit na noong kasagsagan ng mga issue sa pag­lipat noon ng young actress from GMA 7 to ABS-CBN.

There’s no reason para hindi namin suportahan si Richard kahit na iba pa ang kasama niya sa For The First Time.

Saka mabait din naman kasi si KC kay Angel.

We’re sure, pati si Angel, susuportahan ang Richard-KC movie,” pahayag ni Irene.

Well, nakakatuwa na kahit may ibang fans na nang-iintriga sa Richard- KC movie, nandiyan ang fans ni Angel na sumusuporta sa For The First Time.

Boss and Allen were treated for dehydration and released, the source adds.

I’m sure they’re doing a lot of blood work to see if there’s anything else.”

Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas Had Their First Kiss

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas have not confirmed their relationship, but they both recently gave awfully similar interviews referencing a kiss, reported Monday.

"While we were slow dancing…my crush and I had our first kiss!" Selena told Twist magazine. "After it, I leaned back and I said, 'You cheated.' And he said, 'Why' and I said, 'I don't kiss on the first date.' Then he said, 'Well, I never really play by the rules."

Nick, one third of the popular Brothers band, shared with Girls Life magazine:

"On one date, the girl said to me, 'I don't kiss on the first date.' So I said, 'I don't follow the rules.'"

The 16-year-old Disney star recently said she doesn't "have a boyfriend right now. I go on dates and have crushes and stuff, though."

Anne Curtis is Semi-Naked on Star Studio Magazine

Anne Curtis bares it all!

If you can't get enough of the sexy Anne Curtis in Dyosa, wait until you see her gracing the cover of Star Studio Magazine wearing almost nothing.

Take a peek of Anne's pictorial done in E. Lopez Center in Antipolo City as part of her promotion for her upcoming fantaserye on ABS-CBN entitled “Dyosa.” Anne will have Luis Manzano, Zanjoe Marudo and Sam Milby as her leading men.

"Mahal na Mahal Ko si Anne." - Sam Milby

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

Sam Milby and Anne Curtis have been "exclusively dating" for some time now, a term that some have been viewing as tiresome. But the truth is the couple is simply being guided by the self-help book Boy Meets Girl, which speaks about a modern but sacred approach to courtship. "May magandang kwento, tapos parang may mga examples na gusto mong i-follow sa courtship. Maganda yung pag-build up [nung relationship]. At saka yung courtship yung pinakamagandang paraan para ‘pag married na kayo, talagang highest level na saya [ang mafi-feel ninyo]," Sam elaborated during the grand presscon of Dyosa held Ocean Park Manila yesterday, August 4.

The book has also helped them differentiate what a fleeting romance is from real love. "Kung gusto mo umibig sa isang tao, dapat may patience talaga. Love isn’t something you rush," he continued. One thing is clear though for the heartthrob, only Anne owns his heart by now. "Mahal na mahal [ko si Anne]," he admitted. "I can’t live without her. Siya ang Dyosa ng buhay ko."

Since the couple are making sure there are no hitches in their relationship, is work a factor in how they keep things running smoothly? Sam was reportedly furious with Anne’s "breast exposure" on Dyosa, but does the heartthrob have any say about what Anne does for work? "Nagulat ako nung first time na nakita ko [siya sa set]. Alam ko na may prosthetics talaga. Pero nung nakita ko parang wala talaga. It’s just [as if] nalakalagay lang. Yung shape [ng boobs], yung movement, yung kulay [looks very real]," exclaimed the actor. Sam quickly recovered from his shock, however, since he knows that Anne is just doing her job. "Hindi ako pwede magalit. Uncomfortable lang in a way; siyempre akala ko mas tinatakpan. Pero hindi ako pwede magalit." Besides, Anne had more daring scenes in her movie When Love Begins so there’s really nothing for him to be mad about.

When asked what he likes most about Anne, he quickly described her as someone who’s beautiful inside and out. But it’s her all-out support for him that makes her really special to him. "Siguro nakita ninyo po [sa Bench Blackout fashion show] na nahihiya ako onstage. Hindi ako katulad ng ibang tao na [very confident magpakita ng katawan]. Pero nung nakita ko si Anne and her friends, ang saya-saya," Sam gushed. "Hindi ko na napansin yung dami ng tao kasi it’s comforting na nandito siya na sumusuporta."

These real-life sweethearts will soon capture the hearts of Filipino viewers on primetime TV in their much-awaited fantaserye, Dyosa. Sam plays Adonis—a god from the evil clan of Kasamyan—who’s must kill Dyosa for him to become the supreme ruler in the world of gods and goddesses. Aside from his kilig scenes with his leading lady, people should also watch out for Sam’s controversial "nude scenes," the details of which he refused to divulge.

Dingdong Dantes is Belo Medical Group Newest Endorser

Posted by JED on Monday, August 4, 2008 , under | comments (0)

When it rains, it pours. Such is the case for heartthrob Dingdong Dantes who was formally launched as the newest endorser of Belo Medical Group in lavish style on Sunday night, August 3, at NBC Tent in The Fort, Taguig City.

The grand launch, which had a Casino Royale-James Bond theme, coincided with Dingdong's birthday bash; he turned 28 yesterday, August 2. Family, friends, colleagues, and members of the entertainment press braved the heavy rains to celebrate with one of the hottest young actors today.

Before the introduction of Dingdong as the endorser of Belo Shape, a special and unique combination of treatments to tighten skin and remove fat without surgical procedure, a special AVP was shown with the young actor realizing his dream of becoming a secret agent a la James Bond.

Dingdong revealed that he has been a regular customer of Belo Clinic for the past two years—usually to pop out his pimples—but it is only now that he decided to become one of its endorsers. It was actually Ms. Zsa Zsa Padilla, mother of Dingdong's girlfriend Karylle and also a Belo endorser, who suggested to Dr. Vicki Belo that she get the young actor as an endorser.

Dingdong couldn't be happier to be part of the Belo family and join the ranks of some of the biggest names in the industry. With all his successes in his career—highly rated TV shows and product endorsements—Dingdong could only utter: "I am the luckiest man at this very minute."

Pinoy Dream Academy (PDA) Season 2 Update: Laarni, Apple and Miguel are This Week's Nominated for Expulsion

Posted by JED on Sunday, August 3, 2008 , under | comments (0)

The 7th Gala Night marked a lot of firsts in Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2: the first performance of the Headmaster's List of Ten, the first Gala Night with a live band, and the first graded performance of honorary scholar Poy Palma of Zamboanga. Another first in the two-season history of PDA: in a twist reminiscent of Pinoy Dream Brother, the scholars were pitted in a face-off challenge last night, August 2, at the PDA Concert Hall in Quezon City.

Two scholars battled head-to-head; the contestant with the lower grade automatically landed in the bottom five regardless of overall ranking.

Liezel Garcia and Laarni Losala's match-up was a given, considering resident judge Gerard Salonga's comment last week citing the two as the top female vocalists of the competition. But it was the Liezel who emerged as the winner of the match with her rendition of Beyonce Knowles's "Listen." Guest judges Jimmy Bondoc and Ivy Violan agreed with resident juror Louie Ocampo when he said Liezel's performance was "the performance of the night." The four-time top scholar earned an overall score of 9.67, the highest score for a solo performance this season.

Likewise, Laarni got some love from the judges for singing "Di Ko Kayang Tanggapin." "As far as voice-wise, I was surprised. The texture was correct. I enjoyed it," Louie said. Laarni received a score of eight for her rendition of the April Boy Regino song. The resident juror further praised Laarni after her duet with honorary scholar Poy Palma. After they sang "And I'm Telling You," Louie said, "For the first time, I am truly, truly in love with your singing, Laarni."

Meanwhile, it was a close call for Bugoy Bogoyan, another consistent top scorer. Although Jimmy said Apple Abarquez's ‘We Are Family" was "slightly better" than Bugoy's "Nakapagtataka, it was Apple was landed in the bottom five with a score of 6.58. This is the first time Apple became part of the bottom group. Louie's preference, however, was spot on-he said he liked Iñaki Ting's "I'd Do Anything For Love" (But I Won't Do That) compared to Miguel Mendoza's "When Doves Cry," although Louie added he saw improvements in Miguel's singing. "I can't help but not compare you to your past performances. And I must admit I did enjoy your performance tonight, kasi ngayon may mga kulot-kulot ka sa nota na wala naman dati...nakakasurprise. I've seen you grow musically. Although di pa rin perfect, it's nice to know that you are improving," he said of Miguel's performance. Miguel received a grade of seven.

Another scholar who had previously steered clear from the bottom group, Van Pojas, failed to maintain his spot-free record. His rendition of "Through the Fire" did not impress Ivy and earned him a 5.60. Instead, the judges favored Hansen Nichols's "Bailamos," his second Enrique Iglesias song so far. Cris Pastor's "It's Raining Men" also managed to beat Bunny Malunda's "Satisfaction," which earned her 5.17 points.

Although Poy failed to become Star Scholar this, she received raves from Ivy when she sang "Free Your Mind." "Pro na pro ka kumanta. And you're the person to beat, really... I really see the potential and versatility in you," she said.

In a curious decision, the mentors saved Bunny from probation despite getting the lowest grade of the night. With this, Liezel and Bugoy are the only remaining scholars who haven't been part of the bottom group. Who among Laarni, Apple, and Miguel will go home next week?

Catch Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 Uberture, Mondays to Fridays, 5:30 PM, and Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 Primetime, after My Girl, on ABS-CBN. Viewers can also watch the PDA scholars everyday on Studio 23, 12:00-2:00 PM.

"Sarah Geronimo Papalit Kay Nora Aunor." - Isah Red

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)

Sarah (Geronimo) is a revelation in more ways than one. She is the third ‘S’ – apart of course, from ‘Simplicity’ and ‘Sincerity’ of the film – that makes the movie beautiful,” papuri ng mga miyembro ng Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB) headed by Ms. Christine Dayrit sa akting ni Sarah sa launching movie nitong A Very Special Love.

Sarah, the report goes on, tackles her role intelligently. She knows the script and ultimately under­stands her role.

Sarah is bubbly without overacting. She is very raw, sensitive and natural, reason enough to herald her arrival in the acting department,” dagdag pa nilang papuri sa singer/actress na mako-consider na ngayong certified box-office star dahil OA ang pila sa mga sine­han for the said movie.

Every CEB member present during the screening says Sarah is an intrinsic part of the movie.

Actually, pag napanood nga kasi ang pelikula, nakakaaliw siya at promise si Sarah halos ang nagdala sa pelikula though malaki ang contribution ni John Lloyd.

Kuwento nga ni Isah Red (Entertainment Editor of Manila Standard) na sa sosyal na sinehan nanood - Glorietta 4, SRO nang manood siya at grabe ang pila. “Puwede nang mamahinga si Ate Guy (Nora Aunor) in peace. May kapalit na siya sa trono.

Grabe ang sigawan ng mga tao. At Day ang mga nanonood, hindi mga jologs. May mga naka-barong, mga pa-English-English pa. At nagsisigawan pag nakakakilig na ang mga eksena,” kuwento ni Isah na na-excite sa pelikula.

Kung sabagay bibihira na ang pelikulang Tagalog na pinilahan at SRO. Though sinasabing kumikita ang ibang pelikula, pero ito walang kasamang press release sa rami nang nanonood.

Viva Productions’ big boss, Vic del Rosario, has hit the jackpot again. His keen eye for potential stars has spelled box-office success once more. In Sarah, he has found the ideal star: talented, humble, highly bankable.

Now, Sarah is not only confined to making hit CDs and starring in popular TV series. She has crossed over to the big screen as a certified box-office star. Sarah is, in other words, a multi-media star.

Posted by JED on , under | comments (3)

Fear is definitely not a factor as 12 contestants face the challenges of Pinoy Fear Factor. The popular US reality program is the latest hit worldwide franchise by Endemol—the company behind Pinoy Big Brother and Pinoy Dream Academy—to be adapted for Philippine television. But instead of the weekly episodic format, Pinoy Fear Factor will follow the serialized theme of Fear Factor Extreme. The Philippines is the third country to use this format after South Africa and India. Pinoy Fear Factor will be shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina where the contestants will try to surpass several stunts and challenges. Who among them will conquer their greatest fears?

The Contestants

Six Men

Ang basketball hunk na may fear of heights

The lover boy na madaling mandiri

Ang struggling Tondo dad. Kargador sa pier na may fear of heights

The funny Austrian na takot sa ipis

Ang papalicious chef na may fear of heights din

The promdi veterinarian na dalawang beses bumagsak sa board exam. Madaling magulat.

Six Women

The glam goddess. Host at model na takot sa ipis at daga.

Ang hot momma. Nabuntis ng maaga. Takot sa tubig.

The new Ms. Body Beautiful na takot sa snakes

Ang party bombshell na dating mayaman na naghirap ang pamilya. May fear of water.

The daredevil chick na tinalikuran ang showbiz. May fear of the unknown.

Ang flawless girl ng Dagat-Dagatan. May fear of snakes.

Finding these 12 finalists was the first challenge for Direk Lauren Dyogi and the people behind PFF. In the auditions held nationwide, hopefuls were asked to perform some small stunts and had to undergo physical and psychological examinations. Knowing how to swim and drive was also a strict requirement. There were also some contestants who failed to meet particular clauses in the contract hence had to back out, which further extended the selection process to almost two months.

These 12 challengers are set to leave by the end of August and they will stay in Argentina for a month. One will become the first winner of Pinoy Fear Factor: South America and will take home the P2 million cash prize and a house and lot worth P2.5 million from Avida.

Last year, she impressed an international jury for her portrayal of a lesbian in Kaleldo. This year, Cherry Pie Picache once again impressed foreigners for her portrayal of a caring mother in the film Foster Child.

The Filipina actress won her second Best Actress Award from the Durban International Film Fest in South Africa for her portrayal of a woman temporarily taking care of children about to be adopted.

Brillante "Dante" Mendoza's film Foster Child also bagged the Best Film Award in the 29th edition of the DIFF, beating the 21 other competing films from all over the world. The Filipino film competed with entries from France, Germany, South Africa, Taiwan, and the United States, among others.

Mendoza is currently in Durban, South Africa, to field Foster Child as one of the competition features and Tirador in the official selection. One of the films chosen for the official selection is Leatherheads. This football movie set in the 1920s stars George Clooney and Renee Zellweger. The 29th Durban IFF featured 200 films from more than 95 countries from July 23 to August 3, 2008.

In the previous edition of the film fest held annually in South Africa, Cherry Pie was adjudged as Best Actress for the movie Kaleldo (international title: Summer Heat) "for a sustained and controlled performance of the character of the gay sister, Jess, who despite her apparent cultivated masculine exterior betrays a softness which can hardly be seen but can be felt by all."
