Pokwang and Wowowee Executives Summoned by MTRCB

Pokwang and other Wowowee executives were summoned by MTRCB for violating the Philippine Flag law on the show's Independence day celebration. Pokwang wore a gloves with Philippine flag design as part of her costume while impersonating Mommy Dionisia (Manny Pacquiao’s mother). The incident immediately drew criticisms from many viewers, prompting Pokwang to publicly apologize on the same day.

In a letter dated June 15 and addressed to the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) head Ma. Consoliza Laguardia, Pokwang said it was not deliberate on her part to wear boxing gloves with Philippine flag as their design.

"Since I was told that similar merchandise containing the flag was being openly sold to the public in time for Independence Day, I had mistakenly believed that it was fitting to use the gloves for our June 12 episode," Pokwang explained in her letter.

"If there was anything improper in my having used the gloves, it was not deliberate on my part and I sincerely apologize for my error," she added.

Pokwang also promised not to commit the same mistake.

And in response to the invitation made by MTRCB, Pokwang, along with Wowowee’s executive producer Phoebe Anievas and Tonette, showed up at the MTRCB office to personally apologize to Laguardia. Tonette was the one who bought the gloves in Divisoria.

"Pumunta naman sila dito [MTRCB office] at ina-admit nila ang pagkakamali nila. So, I guess naging leksyon din yon sa kanila at hindi na nila ‘yon uulitin," Laguardia said.

Manny Pacquiao is the 6th Highest Paid Athlete in the World According to Forbes Magazine

After getting the "2008 Fighter of the Year" award from the Boxing Writers Association of America, world's best pound-for-pound boxer Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao gets another recognition in his inclusion at "The World's Highest-Paid Athletes" list of Forbes Magazine.

Pacman tied for the sixth spot along with 2009 NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James and golfer Phil Mickelson. They raked in $40 million last year.

His entry on Forbes.com states that Pacquiao "hogged the boxing spotlight over the past year with victories in two blockbuster fights," pertaining to his eighth round TKO win over Oscar de la Hoya in December and second round KO of Ricky Hatton in May. Such mega fights generated more than $100 million in pay-per-view revenue in the US.

Pacman was joined by sports icon Tiger Woods, who are last year's highest-paid athlete with $110 million total generated income. Woods is expected to become the first athlete to earn $1 billion during a career, with almost $900 million in prize money, endorsements and appearance fees to date.

Sharing the list’s second spot are Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and Kimi Raikkonen with $45 million.

David Beckham, meantime, clinched the No. 5 spot with $42 million. As mentioned, a triple tie among Pacquiao, James and Mickelson took over the sixth spot with $40 million.

Coming in at No. 9 is motorcycle racer Valentino Rossi with $35 million. Following suit in tenth place with $34 million is Nascar driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Five athletes, who earned $33 million each, tied for eleventh place. They are Roger Federer, Shaquille O'Neal, Oscar de la Hoya, Lewis Hamilton and Alex Rodriguez.

Golf’s Vijay Singh came in at No. 16 with $31 million.

Rounding up the list are Kevin Garnett, Jeff Gordon, Derek Jeter and Ronaldinho all at No. 17 with $30 million.

Mare, a song included in The Black Eyed Peas newest album titled The E.N.D. is the group's tribute to Filipina women.

This is the third time the group included a song in their album that has a Pinoy touch in it. The first song which was included in their 2005 album Monkey Business is a monster hit "Bebot", a Pinoy slang word analogous to the English slang term "hot chick". While the second song titled "The APL Song" based on the "Balita" or "News" song by the Filipino folk rock group Asin band was included in their 2003 released Elephunk album.

AGB Mega Manila TV Ratings (June 11-15): GMA-7 Regains Its Lead in the Ratings

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)

The race for primetime supremacy gets more exciting as ABS-CBN programs threaten to dethrone GMA-7 as the No. 1 network in Mega Manila, based on overnight ratings conducted by AGB Nielsen Philippines on June 10 (click HERE to see ratings), when three Kapamilya shows occupied three slots in the Top 5. The inspirational drama May Bukas Pa took the top spot with 33.5 percent, followed closely by fellow Kapamilya show Tayong Dalawa with 32.8 percent. The romantic-comedy Only You came in fourth with 30.6 percent; sandwiched by GMA-7's Zorro (31.7 percent) and Totoy Bato (28.8 percent).

But GMA-7 immediately recovered and regained the lead.

Zorro was the No. 1 primetime program again last Thursday, June 11, with 33.8 percent; while ABS-CBN's Only You and Tayong Dalawa tied for second place with 32.5 percent. Former No. 1 May Bukas Pa slipped to fourth place with 32 percent, behind third-placer Totoy Bato's 32.4 percent.

Zorro also led the campaign of the Kapuso shows last Independence day, June 12, with four of its shows occupying the top four slots; the others being Totoy Bato, 24 Oras, and the improving Adik Sa 'Yo. Only You and Tayong Dalawa once again tied, this time for fifth place with an identical 27.9 percent.

GMA-7's primetime newscast 24 Oras was able to grab the lead from Zorro last night, June 15, with 32.5 percent. The Richard Gutierrez-starrer slipped to second place by virtue of its 32.2 percent rating. They were followed by Totoy Bato (29.8 percent), Tayong Dalawa (29.4 percent), and May Bukas Pa (27.6 percent).

The weekday-daytime race is still ruled by the GMA-7 soap Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin?, although noontime show Eat Bulaga! managed to steal the lead last Friday, June 12.

New soap Ngayon at Kailanman is steady on its third-place ranking, while Daisy Siete and Wowowee complete the Top 5.

Weekend viewing belonged to Eat Bulaga! (daytime) and Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (primetime) last Saturday, June 13; and to SOP (daytime) and Kap's Amazing Stories (primetime) last Sunday, June 14. All shows are from GMA-7.

Meanwhile, TV5 shows continue to shake up Saturday viewing habit when Talentadong Pinoy maintained its fourth-place finish and Midnight DJ climbed to No. 6, tied with ABS-CBN's XXX.

Sandara Parks Talks About Her Inclusion to Korea's All-Female Hip-Hop Group 2NE1

Posted by JED on Monday, June 15, 2009 , under | comments (0)

Sandara Park, or simply known in Korea as Dara, says she has no regrets going back to Korea from her not so successful return to Philippine showbiz.

She said in a recent interview, "I was promoting as an entertainer in the Philippines, but I took the bold step and went on as a YG trainee. But I have no regrets about not being able to continue my entertainer career in the Philippines.

"Of course, training as a YG trainee, I have no guarantee for debut. I have no guarantee for success, but because I have dreams to be a Korean entertainer, I worked hard on it."

Dara has been an actress and a singer in the Philippines. She began to gain interest from Koreans after KBS introduced her in one of their TV programs. When she went to Korea for a visit, she was given a basic test by YG Entertainment and then joined as a trainee a month later.

She stayed in Korea and trained for 3 years before debuting as a member of 2NE1.

YG was a little doubtful at first about having Dara as a member of the all-female group. Because it seems that she has yet to get the hip hop 'feel'. But Dara worked hard to be in the group. She listened to hip hop music and soon, sang and danced to hip hop songs.

Talking about the sexy photoshoot she did in Philippine Men's magazine UNO during her stay in the Philippines that became the topic amongst Korean netizens lately, Dara explained that the idea of the photoshoot was suggested by one of talent handlers managing her then. But the photoshoot concept turned out to be different from what she first thought. It was too late to back out so there was no choice then but to do the sexy photoshoot even if she really did not want to do it.

See Dara performs with Korea's all female hip-hop group 2NE1:
