Douglas Quijano is Dead

Posted by JED on , under , | comments (0)

Veteran talent manager Douglas Quijano is dead. He was found lifeless by his driver Francis and film director Ces Evangelista in his Lucban, Quezon home earlier today, June 13.

According to Ces, Douglas usually wakes up early. So when he was not able to join them for breakfast, they knocked on his door at around 10 a.m. When he did not answer, they forced open the door. That's where they discovered the body.

At the moment, the cause of death is still unknown.

Tito Dougs, as he was fondly called by people in the showbiz industry, was considered as one of the best, if not the best, talents managers in the country. He was behind the success of some of today's most popular stars; like Richard Gomez and his wife Lucy Torres Gomez, Mark Anthony Fernandez, Jomari Yllana, Joey Marquez, Janice de Belen, Gelli de Belen, Wendell Ramos, John Estrada, Anjo Yllana, Antonio Aquitania, to name a few.

He also had a hand in discovering Claudine Barretto, Carmina Villarroel, Nadia Montenegro, Eric Fructuoso, and many others.

Aside from managing talents, he also set up his own film company MAQ Productions. He was also credited as executive producer, line producer, and project coordinator for many movies of Regal Films, owned by Mother Lily Monteverde, and other film outfits.

He also wrote the screenplay of the movies Isang Gabi, Tatlong Babae (1975) and Zoom, Zoom Superman! (1973).

Tito Dougs was also one of the founders of PAMI (Philippine Artists Managers, Inc.), an organization of talent managers.

Miley Cyrus' Break-Up with Justin Gaston, Confirmed!

Posted by JED on , under , , | comments (0)

Miley Cyrus and Justin Gaston's rumored break-up was confirmed by the two through their twitter accounts.

"They broke up on Sunday," confirms by somebody close to both Miley and Justin.

E! Online reports the split was caused by Miley’s ex-boyfriend, Nick Jonas: "She obviously has been hanging out with Nick again a lot, and Justin was cool with it at first, as long as it was just a cool, friendly thing. She didn’t cheat, but I guess Nick was trying to get her back the whole time."

Miley tweeted the day of the break-up, "I hope that I’m dreaming, cause I’m sick of this feeling. Tears are words the heart can’t express. Why does saying good-bye hurt so much? Daddy’s giving me therapy. Life will go on. You will smile again…. we will smile again."

While Justin wrote, "I almost fell asleep. I think I did for like 10 seconds. Obviously it didn’t work out. How many tears are in there? They’ve gotta run out soon right?"

AGB Mega Manila TV Ratings (June 5 - 8): Adik Sa ‘Yo’ Registers Lowest Kapuso Premiere in 5 Years

Posted by JED on , under | comments (3)

Adik Sa ‘Yo trumped Atlantika and All About Eve for getting the lowest pilot episode of a GMA show since 2005.

The romantic comedy series starring Jolina Magdangal, Dennis Trillo, Jennica Garcia and Marvin Agustin garnered a very low pilot rating of 25.4% erasing the record low 25.5% pilot rating of Atlantika last Oct. 3, 2006.

Last March 9, 2009, the pilot episode of GMA’s adaptation of the koreanovela "All About Eve" placed 2nd to the all-time lowest with 26.1% rating in Mega Manila. Now the all-time lowest pilot episode of a GMA primetime series belongs to Adik Sa ‘Yo, the second lowest is now Atlantika while the 3rd lowest is All About Eve.

Another GMA program debuted modestly yesterday. The Sine Novela Ngayon at Kailanman starring Heart Evangelista and JC de Vera registered 21.1% which is good for 3rd place in the daytime race. Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin? remains no. 1 while Eat Bulaga captured the 2nd spot.

An interesting turn of events happened last Saturday. The TV5 reality show "Talentadong Pinoy" climbed from it’s usual no. 8 position to no. 4 in the primetime race beating GMA’s "Are You the Next Big Star?" and all primetime programs of ABS-CBN.

Another TV5 show was able to enter the Top 10. Midnight DJ, topbilled by Oyi Boy Sotto, placed 9th and higher than ABS-CBN’s The Singing Bee which settled to no. 10 last Saturday.

Rolling Stone Magazine Outed Adam Lambert

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert officially confirms his true sexuality in the the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine.

Here’s a preview of his interview:

On coming out: "I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay…. I’m proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It’s just another part of me [But] I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader."

On realizing he was gay growing up: "I started to realize I wasn’t like every other boy. I realized that we all have our own power, and that whatever I wanted to do, I had to make happen."

On his run on American Idol: "I was like, 'I’m going to glue rhinestones on my eyelids, b—-!' Right after the finale, I almost started talking about [being gay] to the reporters, but I thought, 'I’m going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler.' I didn’t want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bulls—. I need to be able to explain myself in context… Clay Aiken’s gay, and I’m gay, and we couldn’t be more different. The only thing that is the same about everyone in the gay community is that we’re gay. … Why can’t we talk about a human community?"

On getting attention from fangirls: "I loved it this season when the girls went crazy for me. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all hot."

On sharing a bedroom with Idol winner Kris Allen: "They put me with the cute guy. Distracting! He’s the one guy I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type — except that he has a wife. I mean he’s open-minded and liberal, but he’s definitely 100% straight."

On gaining self-confidence through Idol: "I finally checked into my self-worth for the first time in my life, and the fact that it coincided with Idol is so sweet. I mean, I still have moments where I think, 'Oh, my skin is terrible, and I’m a little fat — I should really go to the gym more.' But for the most part, when I look in the mirror now, I finally see somebody who can do something cool."

For more details on how he came out to his family and what was going through his head when those photos of him in drag hit the web mid-season, pick up the newest issue of Rolling Stone, on stands Wednesday.
