Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




It's a tribute to the most important job in the world – raising and caring for a child.

SM Department Store and ABS-CBN Publishing joined forces last August 7 at the Atrium, Mall of Asia to launch the "Special Moments" bookazine, a compilation of photographs and articles showing the tender and joyful moments between mothers and their children.

"Special Moments" is a partnership between the two companies that highlights the beautiful time in Mom’s life when she is with her little ones. Featured in the pages of the bookazine are different families that willingly gave their time, talents, and energies to share their little yet meaningful experiences.

Making their participation more special is that they also get to support the beneficiaries of this project - the kids of Bantay Bata 163, the branch of the ABS-CBN Foundation focused on protecting the rights and ensuring the bright future of children.

SM Vice President Jo Dy Juanco and ABS-CBN Publishing GENRE SALES HEAD, Mr. Philip Cu-Unjieng personally handed the donation to Bantay Bata 163 during the launch last Saturday.

Also making the event, which was hosted by Ria Tanjuatco-Trillo, extra special was Big Band Crooner Richard Poon. Poon serenaded the mothers with heartfelt renditions of classic hits "Unforgettable," "Just the Way You Are," and "You are the Sunshine of My Life" while pages from the bookazine were flashed on the screens.

Get to support the kids of Bantay Bata 163 while celebrating the love between mothers and children.

Angelica Panganiban Keeps Her Silence About Claudine Barretto's Accusations. Find Out Why?

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Sa kabila ng bantang demanda ni Claudine Barretto laban kay Angelica Panganiban, marami ang nagtatanong kung bakit hanggang ngayon ay nananatili pa ring tahimik si Angelica.

Naglabas naman ng statement si Johnny Manahan o Mr. M., former head ng Star Magic ng ABS-CBN kung saan maituturing na isa sa pinakamalaking artista ngayon si Angelica, tungkol sa tangkang pagsasampa ng kaso ni Claudine at ito ang nilalaman ng kanyang maikli ngunit makahulugang pahayag niya: "Go Ahead! Sue, Claudine. Make our Day. Para bellum."

Kasunod pa nito, sinabi din ni Mr. M. na hindi sinungaling si Angelica, "She is feisty, irreverent, sometimes crude, but never a liar."

Saad pa ng star builder, "Whoever is behind the web of lies and falsehoods being spun in print, Twitter, and other media must be a very disturbed individual. I only hope this nonsense stops before it destroys the perpetrator." (read related article HERE)


Sa tanong naman kung bakit nananatiling tahimik lang si Angel sa tumitinding away sa pagitan nila ni Claudine, sinabi nito na ang tanging dahilan kung bakit hindi lumalabas si Angelica upang ipagtanggol ang kanyang sarili laban sa mga akusasyon ni Claudine ay: "what she has to say would be so compelling and devastating to Claudine's career."

Ayon kay Mr. M, ito ang dahilan kung bakit pinili ni Angelica ang "path of silence."

Dagdag pa niya, "Angelica still has compassion for Claudine and rejects all the falsehoods attributed to her."

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Ted Failon probes police flaws on hostage drama last Monday.

After the bloody hostage-taking situation in Qurino Grandstand that resulted in the death of nine tourists and the hostage taker, broadcast journalist Ted Failon probes if police authorities bungled during the bus siege as people begin to point guilty fingers to the police.

Dismissed police officer Rolando Mendoza, held more than 20 tourists captive on August 23 in a hostage crisis which lasted for around twelve hours. Why did the police fail to peacefully negotiate with the suspect? Does the Assault Team who handled the situation lack the equipment and knowledge on crisis-situation handling?

Watch "Failon Ngayon" this Saturday, August 28, 5:30 PM on ABS-CBN.


Gretchen Barretto Speaks: "Hindi ako ipinagtatanggol ni Claudine dito sa away na ito dahil—wala kaming away ni Angelica."

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Hindi itinanggi ni Gretchen Barretto na alam niyang may nagaganap ngayong hidwaan sa pagitan ng kanyang bunsong kapatid na si Claudine Barretto at ang maituturing niyang bagong kaibigan na si Angelica Panganiban.

"Of course, I'm aware because alam mo naman ang show business, napakaliit. Every news sa bawat artista, malalaman at malalaman mo, dahil nagte-tape kami three times a week...and wherever I go, meron isang katulad mo na magkukuwento! [laughs]

"Saka, lalo na yung Twitter, I don't have [an account], hindi ako nagtu-twit, hindi ako marunong. But then, ewan ko ba, every time may lumalabas, talagang nakakarating sa akin. E, di ba, yung akin nga [Angelica's tweet entry about her and Derek Ramsay]...everybody knows!

"Kahit hindi ako marunong mag-twit, may magkukuwento na, 'Oy, eto ang twinit kay dito o sa akin, or sa ibang tao. Siyempre malalaman...I don't want to be plastic and say na hindi ko alam. Siyempre, alam nating lahat 'yan."

Ayon sa balita, nagdesisyon nang magsampa ng demenda si Claudine laban kay Angelica dahil sa pagkakalat ng huli ng mga masasamang balita laban sa kanya. Kabilang dito ang diumano'y pagkakaroon niya ng affair sa isang nagngangalang Martin Castro, isang bagong kaibigan ng asawa ni Claudine na si Raymart Santiago at best friend naman ni Derek Ramsay na boyfriend ni Angelica (read related story HERE).

Sinabi pa ni Claudine na dagdag pa sa ikinagalit niya kay Angelica ay ang diumano'y pagkakalat din ni Angelica ng mga paninira laban sa nakatatanda niyang kapatid na si Gretchen. Bagama't hindi raw sila nag-uusap sa kasalukuyan ni Gretchen ay hindi raw niya maiwasang hindi ito maipagtanggol.

Matatandang nagkaroon din kasi ng maiksing alitan sina Gretchen at Angelica. May kinalaman ito sa diumano'y pagseselos ni Angelica kay Gretchen dahil sa pagiging close nito sa boyfriend ni Angelica na si Derek, ang co-star ni Gretchen sa fashionserye ng ABS-CBN na Magkaribal.

Ayon kay Gretchen, "No, no, no...that's not true! Walang ganyang kuwento na ipinagtatanggol ako... Yung away ni Angelica Panganiban and Claudine, wala akong kinalaman sa away na 'yon at all—walang kinalaman.

"There's no truth to that. Kasi, kami ni Angelica, nung may nangyari sa amin, sandaling-sandali lang 'yon. And nung kinausap kami ng management ng ABS-CBN na tumigil, pareho kaming disente na tumigil.

"Ngayon na nakilala ko na si Angelica at matagal-tagal ko na ring nakilala si Derek, I've been working with him, naging disente si Derek at nangako siyang aayusin niya yung gusot namin ni Angelica.

"Yung nangako siyang aayusin niya, talagang tinupad niya, inayos niya. Hindi naman bigla-bigla na inayos. Pero sabi niya, pagdating nila galing sa bakasyon nila na isang buwan sa South Africa, sabi niya aayusin niya, at natupad naman niya.

"Ako kasi, ayokong maniwala na lang bigla na sinabi ito ni Angelica... Alam mo, hindi na tayo mga bata para maniwala sa mga ganyan. Angelica is old enough and mature also to know what she's doing.

"At sa industriyang ito, wala rin naman akong naririnig na masama or anything negative about Angelica Panganiban. Kaya hindi rin ako nahirapan makipagkaibigan sa kanya agad-agad.
"Nandito na kami ngayon sa punto ng buhay namin at ng career namin na ayaw na namin ng negative. Kasi kung negative na tao si Angelica, or negative ako, hindi uusbong yung mga career namin. Sabi nila, 'pag negative, di ba, hindi maganda. So, kaya kami, iniiwasan namin yung mga negative-negative, away, talk—anything negative."

Bilang reaksyon naman tungkol sa binitiwang salita ni Claudine na: "Eto lang ako, linis lang nang linis ng kalat ng kapatid ko." Nasabi nalang ni Gretchen na, "Si Claudine, may career, may two kids, and a husband to take care of. She should put her focus there, look at her blessings, look at her own life.

"Sana mai-set aside na niya iyong mga galit niya sa mundo, because that is the very reason she and Raymart have things to work on in their lives...

"Claudine is obviously going through a tough time—in all aspects of her life. I pray that I have more patience and a little more love for her. Pilitin na lang nating intindihin.
"Although, it's hurtful. I cannot deny that her words are very hurtful, but as a sister I still choose to understand and I still choose to bear the hurt."


(UPDATED) Claudine Barretto Decides to File Slander Case Against Angelica Panganiban; Johnny Manahan Replies: "Go Claudine, Make our Day!"

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)




Humagulgol si Claudine Barretto sa telepono habang inilalahad ang dahilan ng kanyang balak na pagsasampa ng demanda laban kay Angelica Panganiban dahil sa diumanong pagkakalat ng huli ng mga kuwentong nakasasama kay Claudine at sa kanyang pamilya.

Ayon sa aktres, ipinamamalita raw ni Angelica sa ilang taong malapit kay Claudine na may affair si Claudine sa best friend ni Derek Ramsay na si Martin Castro (photo inset). Si Martin ay naging kaibigan daw ni Raymart Santiago, asawa ni Claudine, simula pa noong nakaraang taon.

"Kinonfirm na ng apat na tao ito sa akin," sabi ni Claudine tungkol sa pagkakalat diumano ni Angelica ng kuwentong ang nakatatandang aktres ay may affair sa kaibigan ni Derek.

Bukod pa rito, ayon kay Claudine, ikinagalit din daw niya ang maanghang na pasaring ni Angelica laban sa kanyang kapatid na si Gretchen sa Twitter. Nakarating din daw kay Claudine na sinabi ni Angelica sa ilang mutual friends na, "Pareho lang daw kaming magkapatid. Kulang na lang sabihin niyang 'kabit.'"

Pinabulaanan ni Claudine na siya ay mayroong relasyon kay Martin Castro. Magkaibigan lang daw sila nito. "In fact, Martin and Raymart are still friends, they still talk," sabi ng aktres.

Sa paniniwala ni Claudine, ito ay paraan ni Angelica, ang girlfriend ni Derek, para sirain ang pagkakaibigan ni Derek at ng matalik nitong kaibigang si Martin. Ayon pa rin kay Claudine, di ito naiiba sa panggugulo ni Angelica sa pagkakaibigan ng aktor at ng mga kasamahang atleta.

Sabi ni Claudine tungkol kay Angelica, "Gusto niyang sirain si Derek at si Martin. Ipinagkakalat niya na addict si Martin."

Sa pagsasalaysay ni Claudine, nagsimula ang lahat nang maimbitahan sila ni Raymart ng mag-asawang Martin at Cris Castro sa tahanan ng huli nitong Hulyo. "They had just renovated their house kasi, they fixed the garden, and Martin's mother cooked. At gusto daw ako makita ng mother ni Martin," paglalahad pa ng aktres. Nagkataon daw na imbitado rin si Derek sa nasabing okasyon at kasama nito si Angelica.

Ayon kay Claudine, "pagdating pa lang" ng nakababatang aktres ay tila masama na ang timpla nito, at di minsang tila "padabog-dabog" kumilos. Nakarating din daw kay Claudine nung gabi ring iyon na ikinukuwento ni Angelica sa ilang mga guests ang diumano'y pagreregalo ni Gretchen ng mga mamahaling gamit kay Derek, ang leading man ng huli sa teleseryeng Magkaribal ng ABS-CBN.

Kinausap daw ni Claudine si Angelica nang gabing iyon. "I asked her why she was saying those things in the party." Ang nasabi lang daw ni Angelica sa kaniya ay isang matabang na "Sorry."

"Inalagaan ko 'yan since she was nine years old," sabi pa ni Claudine sa PEP kahapon. "She was there on my wedding, imbitado siya sa binyag, we invite her to our house, how could she do this to me and my family?"

Ayon kay Claudine, nakababatang kapatid ang turing nito kay Angelica, na nakasama niya noon sa ABS-CBN Star Magic at sa kaniyang huling teleserye sa ABS-CBN, ang Iisa Pa Lamang.

"Kung may pinagdadaanan siya, sana sabihin niya sa akin, iintindihin ni Ate," dagdag ni Claudine.

Ilang beses din daw nagplano ng pormal na pakikipag-usap ang mga Santiago kina Derek at Angelica ngunit walang natuloy sa mga ito. Hindi naman binanggit ng aktres ang mga pagkakataong humingi silang mag-asawa ng pakikipag-usap sa magkasintahang Derek at Angelica.

Ngunit sinabi ni Claudine, na sa pagitan nilang tatlo ni Raymart at ni Derek, "May usapan kaming kung sino ang nagsinungaling, siya ang unang umako. Pero biglang nagtatago na sila."

Sa isang text message na ipinadala ni Claudine, tinanong daw niya si Angelica: "What's your excuse for doing this to me?"

Ayon pa kay Claudine, wala na raw makapipigil sa kanyang desisyon na idemenda ng "libel o slander" si Angelica. Tinukoy pa nitong maging ang mister niyang si Raymart Santiago o si Mr. M ay hindi makapipigil sa kanya, "Magharap na lang kami sa korte!"

Kahit pa raw humingi ng public apology si Angelica ay hindi na mababago ang desisyon niyang idemanda ito. "It’s too late for an apology. I gave her so many weeks na," sabi pa ni Claudine.

Dagdag pa niya, "I don't think it's fixable."

Alam din ni Claudine ang mga sabi-sabi na ipinagtatanggol lang daw niya ang kapatid na si Gretchen upang makisawsaw sa publicity. Matatandaang nagkaroon ng iringan kamakailan lang sina Angelica at Gretchen matapos magbiro ng huli na padalhan siya ni Derek ng pictures mula sa bakasyon sa Europe—pero iyong mga retrato lang na hindi kasama si Angelica. Natapos ito sa pag-apologize ni Angelica kay Gretchen sa telebisyon, at ang paghingi rin ni Gretchen kay Angelica ng paumanhin sa pagiging "playful" niya na maaaring makasakit ng iba.

"I will always protect my sister," sabi ni Claudine. "I don't know if she knows, I don't care. I'm just wired that way."

Sinabi din niya na lagi niyang ipagtatanggol si Gretchen. "Eto lang ako," dagdag ni Claudine habang umiiyak sa telepono, "linis lang nang linis ng kalat ng kapatid ko."

Ayon kay Claudine, inaayos pa ang mga papeles para sa kanyang paghahabla, at maaring sa Setyembre na ito ihain, matapos ng kanyang mga commitments sa trabaho. Tatlo ang mga abugadong pinag-iisipan ni Claudine na pahawakin ng kaso. Isa na rito ay ang dati na niyang abugado at kaibigang si Raymond Fortun.

Isang maikli ngunit makahulugang mensahe naman ang ipinarating ni Johnny Manahan, o mas kilala sa bansag na Mr. M, kay Claudine. Ang mensahe ay bilang tugon sa banta ni Claudine, sa isang artikulong lumabas sa People's Tonight kahapon, August 24, na magsasampa ang aktres ng kaso laban kay Angelica Panganiban.

Si Mr. Manahan, ang unang head ng talent arm ng ABS-CBN na Star Magic, na siyang humahawak sa career ni Angelica. Dati ring talent ng Star Magic si Claudine, at ang Star Magic ang kinikilala ng lahat na naghubog at nagpatanyag sa aktres. Si Claudine ay matagal na nasa bakuran ng ABS-CBN, bago siya lumipat ng GMA-7.

Ayon kay Mr. M: "Go Ahead. Sue, Claudine. Make our Day! Para Bellum." (Ang "para bellum" ay mula sa Latin adage na si vis pacem, para bellum. Sa Ingles: "If you wish for peace, prepare for war.")

At bilang pagtatanggol kay Angelica, sinabi ni Mr. M na ang 23-taong-gulang aktress na si Angelica ay "feisty, irreverent, sometimes crude," pero hindi raw ito kailanman naging sinungaling.

"For those of us who know Angelica, well, she is feisty, irreverent, sometimes crude, but never a liar. Whoever is behind the web of lies and falsehoods being spun in print, Twitter, and other media must be a very disturbed individual. I only hope this nonsense stops before it destroys the perpetrator."

Sa huli, umaasa si Mr. M na matigil na ang "nonsense" na ito bago pa raw tuluyang masira ang "perpetrator."

Ian beat out 64 other beasts including Robert Pattinson's Twilight saga sensitive heartthrob character, Edward Cullen, by just 3,902 votes in over 1.5 million votes tallied from July 19 to August 18.

"It makes you realize how much fun the fans are having," Ian told EW. "They’re making the success of the show happen."

Ian did admit that he didn't even get to vote in the competition: "We were shooting flashback stuff, and I always have this fear that if I bring my cell phone or computer, then it's going to throw me off!' he said.

GLEE Season 2 Promo Pics and Trailer (minus Charice!)

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Check out these Season 2 sneak peek pics of GLEE featuring Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Kevin McHale, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Jenna Ushkowitz, Naya Rivera, Harry Shum Jr, Heather Morris, Jayma Mays, Jessalyn Gilsig, Mike O’Malley, and Iqbal Theba.








Here’s what Vulture had to say about the prominence of these promos in the upcoming weeks:
And so it begins: After turning down the volume just a tad over the summer, Fox is getting ready to sell the second season of musical megahit Glee (which premieres September 21). Vulture has your first look at the campaign, which, in addition to showcasing Lea Michele's new bang-tastic do, takes a signature scene from the show's pilot and turns it into a symbol of Gleek Power.

This year’s promo campaign, which will start appearing on billboards, buses, and everywhere else next week, provides a cold, wet illustration for just how empowered New Directions has become since the show began last season, and the ads featured the universal hand gesture for “loser.” When the show began, the slushee was "a weapon to put the Glee kids down," says Fox marketing president Joe Earley, while by season’s end, our lovable losers had co-opted this weapon, dousing Mr. Schuester in the finale. Take back the slushee!

By the time Glee actually premieres, you will be seeing slushees when you sleep, or at least when you clench your eyes closed while hitting a high note. Fox plans to use the slushing image — with the tagline "Gleek Out" — in print and on-air and online ad campaigns for the show, with characters expressing their personalities via their respective slushing techniques. All on-air spots for the show will end with a slushee being thrown toward the audience, while Internet ads in mid-September will have users' entire computer screens dripping with slushiness.
