Naughty Side of the Stars

Posted by JED on Friday, October 24, 2008 , under , , , | comments (1)

Halloween is a good excuse for mischief and pranks. In the spirit of the haunting season, stars share the naughtiest things they ever did. Happy Treat or Tricking! May we all get bewitched. Don’t brew what I wouldn’t brew.

GABBY CONCEPCION: “When I was 10, my brother and I hid under the bed. Since it was dark, we lighted a candle. The bed was so low so it caught fire. We almost burned our ancestral home!

SAM MILBY: “During summer break in high school, my best friend and I would always sneak out of the house. Curfew was 12 midnight for those under 18. I was 16 then. We would climb the top of the school building, jump trains, ride my dirt bike and go-carts till 3 a.m. We got caught!

OGIE ALCASID: “As a kid, I used to climb our water tank tower and look inside our neighbor’s house. As an adult, I went to a beach in Barcelona, Spain, and had a great view of topless women.”

MARIEL RODRIGUEZ: “I put Dulcolax on the drink of a guy classmate in high school. I could have died laughing as I saw it take effect on him.”

DIETHER OCAMPO: “In grade school, I switched the male/female signs of the comfort room. All I remember was an enduring scream that made me run as fast as I can escaping the scene.”

RICKY DAVAO: “I went home from a shoot—bloody, bruised and with prosthetic makeup on. I stayed in my car until my kids came to greet me. They laughed nervously while the maids watched in horror.”

LOTLOT DE LEON: “When I was 6, I filled up a gigantic pail with shampoo till bumula. Then I added powder. I told my mom I was cooking. Nagmukhang flour ’yung powder and the shampoo, parang kumukulo! Naloka ang mommy ko!

CHRISTIAN BAUTISTA: “I placed so much Tabasco sauce in a sandwich which I gave to my brother. I told him it was catsup.”

MIRIAM QUIAMBAO: “When I was 16 and just received my student driver’s permit, I was excited to drive my dad’s car. So when he was in the shower, I took the car for a spin without his knowledge. I came back with a fender bender!

YASMIEN KURDI: “I threw huge stones on the Ferrari and Jaguar of my classmates because they were rude to my mom. Nakipagsuntukan ako sa Egyptian schoolmates ko in Kuwait because they were discriminating Pinoys.”

NYOY VOLANTE: “Mahilig ako manggulat ng tao. One time I didn’t know the one I tried to scare had a heart ailment. Good thing nothing serious happened to him. Ang ending, ako ang natakot!

TINTIN BERSOLA: “When I had tantrums as a kid, I would lock myself up in the bathroom and turn the shower on till it flooded. My mom got shocked because hanggang sa sala namin baha!

JEREMY FAVIA (“Katoque” chef): “When I was 4, I pushed my kuya off the double-deck bed. He hit the floor head first. He was rushed to the hospital and had 11 stitches on his head.”

BARON GEISLER: “In Grade 5, I threw a magic bomb inside the ladies room to catch the attention of my crush who was inside. I didn’t know my teacher was also there. She had me suspended.”

CRISTINE REYES: “When I was 6, my brother asked me to light his cigarette on the gas stove. Grabe! Nasunog buong kitchen namin. Walang natirang gamit!

"The Buzz" To Make A Public Apology

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) conducted an adjudication hearing on Wednesday on the complaint filed by former actress Nadia Montenegro against Cristy Fermin, host of “The Buzz,” who was recently suspended by ABS-CBN.

The network and the board agreed that “Buzz” main host Boy Abunda will make a public apology on the Sunday afternoon talk show for the “uncontrollable behavior” of Fermin during an interview on Oct. 5 regarding her feud with Montenegro.

ABS-CBN was represented in Wednesday’s closed-door hearing by business unit head Louie Andrada and executive producer Nancy Yabut, the network’s legal director Mona Lisa Manalo and assistant liaison for the MTRCB Daisy Parungao. The board was represented by vice-chair Marc Castrodes and members Noel del Prado and Cristine Concordia.

After the hearing, the network representatives, committed to pre-tape segments that tackle sensitive issues, for self-regulation.

The network also promised to publish a public apology in a major daily, “on a best-efforts basis,” said board chair Marissa Laguardia.

Paolo Ballesteros, A Father-To-Be

Posted by JED on , under , , | comments (3)

Paolo Ballesteros has long been rumored to be a closet gay since he started cross-dressing in the gay pageants of "Eat Bulaga." Unlike other actors who get offended when they were reported to be gay, Paolo took it in good stride and even played a transvestite role in "Zaido." He was last seen as Bukanding in the recently concluded "Dyesebel." At the launching of GMA-7’s spanking new studios, Paolo confessed that he’s the actor who’s reported in blind items as a father to be. His US-based girlfriend named Kaye will deliver their love child, a baby girl, on the last week of November and he’s hoping the baby will share his birthday, November 29. He and Kaye used to be classmates in college and they went steady until she moved to Chicago, Illinois. Early this year, after "Zaido" ended, Paolo went to the US to visit his sick dad in New York.

He met with Kaye there and something happened between them while he was staying there. So now, he’ll soon be a father. He’ll be flying there in November to make sure he’s with Kaye when she delivers their baby. But no, they haven’t talked about getting married.

"Mahirap ang arrangement kasi nandito ang trabaho ko at hindi rin naman ganun kadali for me to be petitioned para mabigyan ako ng permit to live there," he says. "Basta I promised Kaye that I will support our baby sa abot ng aking makakaya."

Cristy Fermin Out, Kris Aquino In on The Buzz

Posted by JED on Thursday, October 23, 2008 , under , , | comments (0)

The ABS-CBN management finally convinced Kris Aquino to reclaim her hosting job in the showbiz talk show “The Buzz” after Cristy Fermin vacated her slot due to suspension.

When Kris was first asked to return to the Buzz, she hesitated because Sunday is dedicated to her husband James Yap, son and mother. Kris and her family are spending their lunch time together with mom, former President Corazon Aquino.

The ABS-CBN management asked James if Kris can take the job and the basketball heartthrob did not hesitate.

Kris vacated her seat at the kapamilya showbiz talk show when she had a rift with co-host Cristy Fermin. Now that Cristy Fermin was suspended, she can now return not as guest host but a regular host like she used to be. She also finished her issue with Jobert Sucaldito, one of the anchors of the said talk show.

Kris will begin her hosting stint this Sunday which coincides with the birthday celebration of her co-host and best friend, Boy Abunda.

Eugene Domingo In Rift With Mother Lily Monterverde of Regal Films

Posted by JED on Wednesday, October 22, 2008 , under , , | comments (0)

Sa pictorial ng 2008 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry na Shake, Rattle & Roll X ng Regal Entertainment kanina, October 21, ay nakumpirma ang balita na wala na sa cast ng pelikula ang comedienne na si Eugene Domingo. Wala si Eugene sa pictorial, kung saan siya sana ang bida sa "Nieves" episode na ididirehe ni Mike Tuviera.

Sa paunang balita, hindi raw nagkasundo sina Mother Lily Monteverde at Ricky Gallardo, manager ni Eugene, dahil mahirap daw ka-deal si Ricky kaya inalis ang comedienne sa cast. Pero iba naman ang pahayag ni Ricky, itinuwid nitong hindi inalis si Eugene sa cast; sila raw ang nag-backout.

Sabi ni Ricky, "Iba ang tinanggal sa hindi tinanggap. Hindi namin tinanggap ang movie dahil hindi sila [Regal] tumupad sa pinagkasunduan. Ang linaw-linaw ng usapan, maayos na ang lahat, ‘tapos binago pa. Ayaw naming ma-stress kaya hindi na lang namin tinanggap.

"Ang pinag-usapan, pinapahalagahan, tinutupad. Walang magiging problema kung tinupad lang nila ang pinagkasunduan. Ganun lang kasimple."

Sa side naman ng Regal, sa terms of payment hindi nagkasundo sina Mother Lily at Ricky. Pumayag na raw ang lady producer sa budget na hiningi nina Ricky at Eugene, pero wala pa ring nangyari sa usapan ng dalawang kampo. Ang ending, pinalitan na lang ang komedyana sa role ng isang encanto slayer sa Shake, Rattle & Roll X (SRRX).

Si Marian Rivera na ang ipinalit kay Eugene sa "Nieves" at si Mother Lily pa mismo ang nagbalita nito sa entertainment press.

Bukod sa SRRX ay tinanggal na rin si Eugene sa cast ng isa pang MMFF entry na Desperadas 2. Tiyak na ikadi-disappoint ni Direk Joel Lamangan ang pagkakaalis ni Eugene sa pelikula niya. Personal choice niya sana si Eugene sa role ng long-lost sister nina Ruffa Gutierrez, Rufa Mae Quinto, Iza Calzado, at Marian.

Role ng isang prinsesa sa isang bansang malapit sa Africa ang gagampanan sana ni Eugene. Ikinukuwento pa ni Direk Joel na excited at natatawa na siya sa magiging partisipasyon sana sa pelikula ni Eugene.

Akala namin ay magagawan pa ng paraan na maibalik sa Desperadas 2 si Eugene, pero hindi na pumayag ang mga producer. Excited din sana si Eugene nang malaman ang kanyang role at may love interest pa siya sa pelikula. Isa pang ikinatuwa nito'y puro magaganda ang kanyang mga kasamang artista at "feeling beautiful" na rin daw siya.

Pero dahil sa nangyari, hindi na raw kukunin ng Regal si Eugene sa anumang pelikulang kanilang gagawin. In other words, banned siya sa film company at hindi na rin siya tuloy sa pelikulang Ang Nanay Kong Aswang. At kung co-producer ng GMA Films ang Regal sa second movie nina Richard Gutierrez at KC Concepcion ay hindi na rin siya makakasama. Willing pa naman daw sana siyang mapasama sa pelikula.

Four movies ang nawala kay Eugene.

Ano naman ang naging reaction ni Eugene sa nawalang dalawang pelikula sa kanya.

"Okey sa kanya, naintindihan niya. Dapat daw ‘pag may kasunduan, pahalagahan, at tuparin," sagot ng talent manager.

Ang press ang nanghinayang sa dalawang pelikulang nawala kay Eugene dahil hindi pa naman siya tumanggap ng TV show at balak mag-concentrate sa pelikula. Sa pagkakaalam namin ay kasama rin siya dapat sa Luna Mystica, pero nag-beg off nga siya dahil sa gagawin niyang pelikula.

For this year, sa Ang Tanging Ina Ninyong Lahat ng Star Cinema, na entry rin sa MMFF, mapapanood si Eugene. Next year ay nakatakda naman niyang gawin ang launching movie niya sa Viva Films na Demetria M.D.

Judy Ann Santos: "Napakalaki ng utang na loob ko kay Tito Alfie."

Posted by JED on Monday, October 20, 2008 , under | comments (4)

Actress Judy Ann Santos and her manager of 20 years, Alfie Lorenzo, have apparently ironed things out between them after their reported brief spat.

Their misunderstanding stemmed from Santos’s decision to delay her contract signing with ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. while her lawyer studied the document.

Lorenzo, who apparently got hurt by his talent’s decision, said Santos went to his house to apologize on Saturday.

"Nandito siya sa bahay ko ng 5:30p.m., kumatok sa kwarto ko... sabi niya, 'wag ka na magalit sa akin.' Alam niya galit ako... sabi ko, 'biro mo nagmamalasakit lang ako sa inyo pagkatapos ako pa ang lalabas ng masama, pagdududahan ako.' Tapos sabi niya, 'sabi ni attorney OK na naman po.' Kung sabihin ng attorney na di OK, hindi ka pipirma? May butas pa din doon," he said.

"'Bati na tayo, sabi nya. Sabi ko, 'sige bati na tayo,' nag-kiss na siya."

Lorenzo clarified that the tiff between him and Santos was not about money but it's about him securing the future of his talent.

"Next time, sa akin ka kukunsulta. Noong inalagaan kita, hindi ko inisip na si Juday ay one day magiging milyonarya so kaya nga sabi ko wag na akong gagalitin para hindi na makalkal ang iba pang intriga," he warned.

Santos, on the other hand defended herself. She stressed: “Hindi naman ibig sabihin na hindi ako pipirma or something pero siyempre parang karapatan kong malaman kung ano ang magiging scope of work ko in the next two years.

Kasi hindi ko naman naiintindihan ang legal terms, hindi naman ako abogado but that doesn’t mean na binabalewala ko si Tito Alfie. Napakalaki ng utang na loob ko kay Tito Alfie.

Santos said she was just being careful this time especially in light of her case at the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

May sarili akong utak… 30 years old na ako, pwede na akong mag-desisyon para sa sarili ko. If people are saying na may tampo sa akin si Tito Alfie, siguro I would just work my way on how to talk to him,” she said.

Ai-Ai delas Alas to James Yap: "Bati na tayo."

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

Comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas expresses her longing to be friends with Kris Aquino's hubby, star cager James Yap, after the two had a falling out last year.

"James, let's be friends. Bati na tayo sayang din ako maganda akong friend," delas Alas said over ABS-CBN's weekly entertainment show "The Buzz."

Delas Alas said that humbling herself is really something good especially that Christmas is fast approaching. She said she is opening her heart to the possibility that she and James could become friends.

"Kris and I are friends. The problem is I chose sides," she said.

Delas Alas and Yap had a public tiff after tabloids outed the Yap--Hope Centeno controversy. As a friend, delas Alas tried to protect Kris and said that James should go home to his mother.

Yap fired back and said the comedienne should watch her words. "Ayusin mo pananalita mo, hindi ka nakakatuwa." Delas Alas later apologized to the basketball player.

Kris admitted that the issue with the Comedy Concert Queen caused many quarrels between her and James.

Despite the controversy, Delas Alas said she will always be friends with Kris. "Kay friendship, well friendship... Let's go!"

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens Filipino Connection

Here's an excerpt from Conversations with Ricky Lo's exclusive interview with the two main characters of Walt Disney Picture's High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens:

RFL: Could you tell us about your Filipino heritage?
Vanessa: I’m half-Filipino. My mother is Filipina. She comes from Cebu and Manila. Her maiden surname is Cojuangco.

RFL: Oh, did you know that the Cojuangcos are a prominent, rich and influential family in the Philippines? One of them, Tonyboy Cojuangco, owns a TV station and used to own a telephone company (PLDT).
Vanessa: Really? Is that so?

RFL: Have you been to the Philippines?
Vanessa: No; not yet. But I hope to go there someday with my family.

RFL: Were you brought up the Filipino way or the American way?
Vanessa: A little bit of both. I have rice with every meal.

RFL: How much of the Filipino custom and tradition do you know?
Vanessa: Not much. I’ve learned a few things here and there. The most that I got from Filipino culture is through food.

RFL: Zac, I understand that like Vanessa, you have your own Philippine connection, right?
Zac: My dad has been to the Philippines several times — for fun. He’s an engineer. We have several Filipino friends. My dad told me that Filipinos are a very musical people. One day, I will go to the Philippines — for fun.

Alfie Lorenzo: "Hindi naman ako pulubi nang madampot ni Juday. Siya ang pulubi nang madampot ko."

Nagpa-interview na ang talent manager at entertainment columnist na si Alfie Lorenzo sa Startalk na ipinalabas kahapon, October 18. Ito ay kaugnay sa isyu ng hindi nila pag-uusap at pagkakasundo ng alaga niya for 20 years na si Judy Ann Santos.

May kaugnayan ito sa hindi pa pagre-renew at pagpirma ni Judy Ann ng kontrata sa ABS-CBN. Kailangan pa raw kasi ng aktres na ikonsulta sa kanyang lawyer ang naturang kontrata. Isang bagay, na ayon kay Alfie, ay hindi naman naganap sa mahabang taon ng pagiging talent-manager nila.

"Naiinis lang kasi after 20 years, ngayon lang siya nagkonsulta sa abogado," himutok ni Alfie. "E, naaalala ko nga, that time na mag-asawa siya at mabuntis siya, wala na siyang offer, wala na siyang trabaho. Inaalagaan ko lang ang future nila. The same way na bata pa lang ‘yan, inaalagaan ko na, hanggang sa pag-aasawa. Siyempre, wala naman akong tutol sa kanila ni Ryan and, in fact, I appreciate Ryan's gesture na hindi naman siya nakikialam sa career ni Juday."

Ayon kay Alfie, nakakuha naman daw siya ng better deal sa mother studio ni Juday by drawing a contract deal until 2011. Kasama rin daw na mabibiyayaan sa bagong kontrata ni Judy Ann si Ryan.

"May guarantee siya na kung mag-aaaral nga siya [Judy Ann] sa States ng Culinary Arts, may allowance siya. Kung halimbawa magtanan siya, magpakasal, mabuntis siya, may allowance siya. So I signed it at sabi ko, papirmahan n'yo na kay Juday.

"The whole day of Wednesday [October 8], wala siyang gagawin noon, victory party ng Kulam. After that, siguro mga two o' clock or three ‘o clock, puwede na siyang tumawid sa ABS, di ba? E, tumawag sa akin ang executive ng Dos na humihingi nga raw ng kopya [si Juday]. So, ni-meet nila si Juday. Sabi, ‘Bigyan n'yo ako ng kopya at ipakikita ko sa abogado ko,'" lahad ni Alfie.

Sa pagkakataong ito ay hindi na napigilan ni Alfie na ipaalala kay Juday ang kanyang pinagmulan. Maging ang mga hirap daw niya sa struggling years ni Juday ay nabanggit din ni Alfie.

"Wala pa naman si Judy Ann, nagsusugal na ako. Hindi naman ako pulubi nang madampot ni Juday. Siya ang pulubi nang madampot ko. Ngayon, she's a billionaire! Alalahanin na lang ni Juday yung 20 years na nakapila pa sila sa Cubao, na nagdyi-jeep lang. Hanggang sa naihanap ko sila ng apartment na ako pa rin minsan ang nag-aabono. Yung first van niya, ako pa rin ang nag-down no'n," pahayag ng talent manager.

Dagdag niya, hindi naman daw kabawasan sa kanya bilang talent manager kung mamuhay na nang tahimik si Juday sa piling ni Ryan. Nasabi na nga lang nito, "Well, I hope they become the first couple that will not separate in showbiz. Good luck!"

Dugtong pa niya, "Okay lang naman sa akin. Hindi naman ako na-devastate noong lahat sila... Nag-asawa si Sheryl Cruz, nag-asawa si Jackie Forster, nag-asawa si Ruffa Gutierrez, nag-asawa si Sunshine Cruz, okey lang yun, di ba? Marami pa namang matutuklasang talents. Stars come and go.

"Talagang ang mga artistang babae kapag..." biglang na-bleep ang word ni Alfie. "Wala na...nawawala sila sa katinuan nila. Bahala na siya kung gusto pa niya ako or ang attorney niya."

Sa bandang huli, umaasa pa rin naman si Alfie na magkakaayos din sila ni Juday.

"Maaayos din naman yun... Dyusko!" sambit niya.

Nakausap din ng Startalk si Judy Ann at nagalit daw ito nang malaman ang isyu. Hindi naman daw sila nag-aaway ng kanyang manager. Nais muna ni Juday na magkausap sila para malinaw ang isyu. Ang hiling lang niya, sana raw ang ang pag-uusap nila ay maging pribado at huwag nang lumabas pa.

Willie was there to receive the Televisionary award while Joey was awarded the Supremo awards, the highest award that night.

Willie shared the trophy with Joey de Leon during his thank-you speech, “I would like to share this award to a supreme talent, supreme icon, my idol, Mr. Joey de Leon. I share this award with you.” he said.

Tito Joey! Alam n’yo, lambingan lang naman namin yung sa TV, lambingan lang namin yun. Alam n’yo, tinulungan ako ng taong ‘yan nagsisimula pa lang ako. Ako ang sidekick niya sa pelikulang Barbie. Kinuha rin nila ako ni Vic Sotto sa pelikulang Sam and Miguel. Akala n’yo, ganoon lang, nag-aaway kami, hindi ho, yun ay patutsadahan lang, lambingan. Si Mr. Joey de Leon, I admire this guy so much. Maliit pa lang ho ako, nasa telebisyon na siya. Siya ang ginagaya ko. Tito Joey!” added Willie.

After a couple of funny exchanges between the two, Joey de Leon joined Willie on stage. “Pasalamat tayo kay Tim at sa Supreme. Tama ang sabi ni Willie, mga tuksuhan lang ‘yan. Kaya lang, yung dalawang co-hosts mo Willie, paliwanag muna nila kung bakit nakikiiyak sa ‘yo?” cracked Joey to which Willie responded, “Alam n’yo naman kami, artista! Ikaw nga ang nagturo sa akin niyan. Pero alam mo, hindi ba na-suspend ako, pero noong na-suspend ka, nakidalamhati rin ako!

Meanwhile, Embassy bar owner Tim Yap was proud of what transpired. “Sabi nila, sa Embassy puro away, that’s not true! Embassy puro peace! Unity, friendship and love!” remarked Tim.
