Posted by JED on Saturday, October 9, 2010 , under | comments (1)




Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson's new movie will no longer be a 2011 Valentine presentation of Star Cinema as previously reported but, hola! it's coming 2 weeks from now, taking the slot of interrupted Robin Padilla - Toni Gonzaga movie.

Kimerald topbill a new romantic movie offering of Star Cinema titled "Till My Heartaches End" under the direction of Jose Javier Reyes who took over the directorial job from Laurenti Dyogi.


It's Kim and Gerald's second movie this 2010 and becomes the only loveteam who have 2 movies this year.

The first was the Star Cinema's 2010 opener "Paano Na Kaya", which was a boxoffice success and is so far the 5th Top-grossing Pinoy film this year.

"Till My Heartaches End", which opens October 27, is Kim's 3rd movie in less than a year, after "I Love You Goodbye" shown in December 2009 and "Paano Na Kaya" last January.

Here is the plot outline of "Till My Heartaches End":

Paolo "Powie" Barredo (Gerald Anderson) is out to prove to the world that he is not just a son out of wedlock, but that he can succeed in life independently. Though he started out roughly, he soon picked up pace and climbed the ladder of success. But as things started falling into place, other important things in his life had to take a backseat as he experienced the thrill of finally achieving his goal.

Agnes Garcia (Kim Chiu) has always longed for the time when her family will finally be complete again. At the young age of 6, her parents left the country to work abroad – her mother was a medical technician in America, while her father worked as an engineer n Riyadh. Despite the distance, Agnes held tight to the inevitability that she will reunite with her parents once again when she passes the nursing exam and applies to work in the States.

The moment these two saw each other at the café, they couldn’t take their eyes off each other. Their attraction was apparent and it seemed that destiny brought them together. As they got to know the other better, they found solace and comfort in each other’s company. But the security they found in each other soon started to shake when their different life paths take them to different directions. Despite the love they both still have for each other, one must choose to decide when to let go, even if the other is still holding on.


Mark Herras Webcam Scandal Photos Leaked!

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)




Kapuso star Mark Herras is facing a scandalous controversy - an alleged webcam scandal photos recently circulating on the net.


Mark Herras alleged webcam scandal photos

Read below Ogie Diaz' report related to Mark Herras' webcam scandal (Oh My G!):

HINDI NA KAILANGAN pang i-blind item kung sino ang diumano’y guwapong young actor na may webcam scandal. Magmumukha lang kaming tanga, dahil kalat na kalat na sa mga networking sites.

Nalaman namin ito sa twitter. Tinatanong kami kung totoong si Mark Herras ba ‘yong nakipag-chat at ipinakita pa raw ni Mark ang “ari” nito sa webcam.

Kung ito nga at kung kumpirmado ngang si Mark ito? Ba’t niya ‘to nagawa? Sino ang kanyang ka-chat para makumbinsi siyang ipakita ang kanyang ari?

Uulitin namin, kung si Mark nga ito (na gusto pa rin naming maniwalang hindi siya ito), titili ang mga bading ng, “Nakakalokah! Daks pala siya, huh! Above average. At least, hindi naman siya dyutay!”

SA PINOYEXCHANGE.COM, BINASA namin ang lahat ng pahina ng forum na may titulong “Mark Herras, totoo ba ‘to?” at doon ay paulit-ulit na pino-post ng mga respondents ang dalawang screen shots kung saan kita ang half body ni Mark na hindi maikakailang si Mark Herras nga.

Sa ibabang bahagi naman ay naka-close-up na sa “naghuhumindig na ari” ang webcam na halatang tinatakam ni Mark-daw ang ka-chat.

Ang oras ng kanilang chatting na nasa webcam si Mark-daw ay 1:54. Siguro, madaling-araw na ito. May Korean writings sa ilang task bar sa ilalim (na siyempre, di namin kayang basahin), kaya feeling namin, ang ka-chat ni Mark-daw ay nasa internet cafe na pag-aari ng Korean.

Ayon sa isang computer expert na nakausap namin, “Mahirap i-photoshop ‘yung picture na kita ‘yung ari, dahil ‘yung background nu’ng Mark-daw sa first two photos ay ‘yun din ang background nu’ng ipinokus ang ari niya.

“Yung sa oras naman sa third photo, ito ‘yung kita ‘yung ari na, sa screen sa extreme right, 2:11 ‘yung nakarehistro. Pareho nu’ng sa box nu’ng webcam, so hindi siya basta ipinatong lang doon.

“Lumalabas na lalaki ‘yung ka-chat nu’ng Mark-daw, dahil sa conversation nila, ang sabi ni Mark-daw sa ka-chat, ‘Di ka gumagalaw Dude!’ Na sinagot naman ng ka-chat na ‘W8 naghang lang pc,’ At ‘yung naka-webcam din na kausap ni Mark-daw ay lalaking nakahubad sa extreme right (na baka nagpakita rin ng pagkalalaki).

“May intensiyon ‘yung ka-chat na ikalat ‘yung kanilang supposedly private chatting nila ni Mark-daw, dahil initiman nu’ng guy ang name niya. At nagtagumpay siya.”

BAGO ITO AY tinawagan namin sa kanyang celfone si Mark Herras at ikinuwento sa kanya ‘yung kumalat sa twitter at pex, “Ano ‘yon? Hindi ko alam ‘yon. Ikaw lang nagsabi sa akin.

“Saan daw kuha ‘yon? Kelan daw kuha ‘yon? Matagal na?”

“Hindi ko alam, eh. Pero parang ngayong taon lang, eh.” (Nakalagay sa webcam ang petsang April 8, 2010.)

“Baka ‘yan lang ‘yung dati pa. Ewan ko. Itse-check ko din!”

“Sana nga, hindi ikaw, pero ‘yung pusod mong parang singkit, ikinumpara ko sa ibang photos mo, pareho, eh!”

“Sige, itse-check ko. Babalikan kita. Ite-text kita.”

Na hindi na nangyari.

Pero according to Gorgy Rula, nakausap nito si Mark at ang sabi lang daw nito na natatawa ay, “Hindi ako ‘yon. Ang galing naman nilang mag-imbento!”

KUNG ALAM NI Mark Herras sa kanyang sarili na siya ‘yon, pero wala siyang choice, kundi idenay ito, tama lang ang kanyang desisyon.

Imagine, kung aamin siya, eh, ‘di ang next question ay, “Ba’t mo nagawa ‘yon?” at hindi lang ‘yon, meron pang isa: “Ba’t hindi babae ang ka-chat mo? Ba’t lalaki?”

Sa pinoyexchange.com nga ay ipinapalagay ng ibang respondents doon sa forum na “silahis” o “bisexual” si Mark. Pati ang kanyang mga friends sa Facebook, ang comment ng isa, questionable ang gender.

NOVEMBER 13, 2007 nang Ininterbyu ni John Lapus sa Showbiz Central sa segment nitong “Don’t Tell A Lie” si Mark kung saan ipinaskel pa sa pex ang bahagi ng interbyu ni John dito.

JOHN: Mark, isa kang certified techie. Oo, madalas ko ‘tong nakikita sa mga internet cafes. Mahusay itong mag-computer. At ayon sa makakating dila, kadalasan ka raw inuumaga sa pagtsa-chat.

Ang gusto kong malaman ngayon, Mark Herras, ay totoo ba na mahilig ka raw magpakita ng katawan sa ka-chat mo sa webcam. Naghuhubad ka pa raw ng t-shirt. Aba’y topless ito. Mark Herras, don’t lie to me, yes or no?

MARK: No.

JOHN: O, Mark, papano ‘yan? Lie ang lumabas. Baka naman nainitan ka minsan at hinubad mo?

MARK: Hindi. Unang-una kasi, ba’t naman ako maghuhubad sa harap ng webcam kung ganito kaliit ang katawan ko?

JOHN: Sa bahay, wala kang webcam, wala kang computer, ha?

MARK: I have a computer, pero hindi ako gumagamit ng webcam at nagtsa-chat. Alam ng mga tao kung sino ang gumagamit niyan. Ako, addict ako sa mga games.

Isinulat namin ito, hindi dahil gusto naming ilagay sa kahihiyan si Mark Herras. Kung hindi talaga siya ito, sana nga at ma-karma sana ang gumagawa nito.

Isa rin itong babala sa mga artistang pinagpaguran ang kanilang pangalan, pero kung minsan, pag “nasa totoong buhay na” ay nakakalimutan nilang maaaring magamit ang kanilang pangalan, dangal, katawan sa hindi magandang paraan.

Sa araw-araw na pagbabago ng teknolohiya ngayon, lalo tayong mag-iingat, dahil sa isang iglap lang, maaari itong mawala, dahil lang sa ating “kapabayaan” o ang pagbibigay ng pahintulot sa ibang tao na tayo ay bastusin at hiyain.


According to Nadia Montenegro Mark just laughed off the said scandal and says it was not him, and even said "palpak ang pagka-edit, d lng mn inayos".

Lolit Solis says "Kung totoo aminin!, Kung hinde eh dedma na lng", Lolit also say if bongga or not, when tell bongga she says "lalo nilang pagnasaan si Mark nyan".

But even before Mark personally breaks his silence on the issue, some online users have already been showing proofs that he is indeed the guy in the webcam photos.

The alleged webcam scandal


Allegedly, the lookalike and Mark Herras have exactly the same "balbas" and "bigote":


Same sando daw according to PEX user Mam Wilma.


Another PEX user, TriciarELLAs, also makes a comparison of Mark's "pusod" and "puson" with that of the webcam guy...


As well as the same wall/background on the cam and a picture inside Mark's home.


A certain "Pandesal" at Pinoy Parazzi commented a link to this picture and he/she took notice of the same necklace.


Even a video about Mark's home posted on Youtube last year has been reposted on Facebook. Jham Santillan posted it on his Facebook wall and said, "watch the video and compare the ceiling, the walls, the edges of the frames, the electric fan, you be the judge on the video scandal..."



Now, you tell me...is he or is he not the guy on the webcam scandal?

Manny Pacquiao, Dyan Castillejo and Piolo Pascual Will Lead 'Run for the Pasig River' this 10-10-10

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Seven-division world boxing champion Rep. Manny Pacquiao, heartthrob Piolo Pascual, and sports broadcaster Dyan Castillejo - along with other Kapamilya stars - will join up to 140,000 Filipinos in "10.10.10 A Run for the Pasig River" this Sunday, October 10.

Pacquiao, who is in the middle of his training for a November bout, will show his support for the river clean-up of ABS-CBN Foundations' Kapit Bisig Para Sa Ilog Pasig by hosting the pre-race program at the starting line along Ayala Avenue. The boxing champ will be joined by ABS-CBN senior sports correspondent Dyan Castillejo and actor Piolo Pascual. All three will run the 10k race thereafter.

Comedienne Pokwang of Pilipinas Win na Win! and Umagang Kay Ganda anchor Winnie Cordero, on the other hand, will entertain the runners at the 3k starting line in SM Mall of Asia grounds.

At the 5k starting point in CCP Complex, ABS-CBN Foundation managing director Gina Lopez will host the program while Bro. Mike Velarde will do the invocation. Internationally-acclaimed director Brillante Mendoza, who directed the public service announcements for KBPIP, will run in the 5k category.

Former President Fidel V. Ramos will fire the gun at the 3k starting point to signal the start of all the races.

After the simultaneous running event, a post-race program will be held in SM MOA featuring ABS-CBN stars Rhap Salazar, Luis Manzano, Jovit Baldivino, Karylle, Melai Cantiveros, Jason Francisco, and Studio 23 hosts Juddah Paolo, Aaron Atayde, and Angel Aquino.

ABS-CBN Chairman Eugenio Lopez III will also take part in the fun run, which aims to raise funds for the cleaning of Estero San Miguel, a tributary of the Pasig River.

In 2009, KBPIP successfully began dredging operations in another tributary, Estero de Paco, and relocated 1,200 informal settlers to Calauan, where they are given free shelter and livelihood through ABS-CBN Foundation's BayaniJuan.

"10.10.10 A Run for the Pasig River" hopes to break the Guinness World Record for the most participants in a footrace set by San Francisco's "Bay to Breakers" race in 1988.

With the participation of Pacquiao, Piolo, and other celebrities, KBPIP hopes to inspire more Filipinos to take part in saving the Pasig River.


Court Decides to Defer Judgment on ABS-CBN's Request to Issue TRO Against Willie Revillame; ABS-CBN Issues Statement

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




The Kapamilya station's petition for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against Willie Revillame was deferred by the court.

In this regard, ABS-CBN released an official statement regarding the foregoing:

ABS-CBN’s application for TRO has been submitted for resolution of the Judge, who ordered both parties to file all pleadings by Oct. 15, after which he shall decide on the application.

ABS-CBN reiterates that the issue on Willie Revillame is all about honoring a contract. To the Kapamilya network, it is the ethical and right thing to do. It is a noble act of a person who values honesty and integrity.

So when Willie chose to ignore his contract with ABS-CBN, we were left with no choice but to ask the court to intervene. We have not been negligent in reminding Willie about his contract obligations and when he asked for the rescission of his contract, ABS-CBN chose to apply for a TRO and fight for what is right and honorable."

TV5 has announced that Willie Revillame is launching his new show on the Kapatid network entitled "Willing Wille" this coming October 23.

This prompted the Kapamilya network to ask the Quezon City RTC to issue a temporary restraining order (TRO) and a writ of preliminary injunction to stop Revillame “from committing further violations to his contract with the network” by launching his new show.

Videos to Watch: 'Imortal' October 4 Pilot Episode

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




For those of you who haven't had the golden chance to watch the pilot episode of the most-anticipated Pinoy fantaserye of the year - Imortal, which premiered last Monday night on ABS-CBN, worry no more. You may still catch the premiere episode below.

Imortal opens with Angel Locsin, as Lyka, protecting her daughter from a group of vampires. She turns into a werewolf and starts attacking every bloodsuckers who attempt to kill her daughter. Unfortunately, she gets outnumbered and was badly injured. A group of werewolves come to the rescue but its too late.

Then the next scene narrates how vampires came to shore in the 1500s. Known as the Bampiras, their menace quickly spread throughout the land. But a powerful clan also lived in the islands, a group of beings who can transform themselves into powerful wolves – the Taong Lobos. The Taong Lobos were the humans’ protectors and they immediately formed an army to destroy the vampires. The blood drinkers were no match to the Taong Lobos because a bite from these creatures is fatal for them.

Angel Locsin once again assumes the character of a she-wolf as she brings life to the character of Lia, the daughter of Lyka. John Lloyd Cruz, on the other hand, will portray the role of Mateo, a vampire who will be attracted to Lia.

With the foreseen battle between the Bampiras and the Taong Lobos, we got the hint that Mateo (a vampire) and Lia (a werewolf) will find themselves drawn to each other. They come from rival clans but they will still fall in love despite their opposing nature.

Mariel Rodriguez vs. KC, Toni, Vice Ganda, Anne and Luis. So, Who is Telling The Truth?

Posted by JED on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 , under | comments (1)




Last week, September 26, ay nagsalita na si Mariel Rodriguez sa The Buzz about some issues na may kaugnayan sa wedding nila ni Robin Padilla.

Nagpaliwanag din sya tungkol sa dumaraming Kapamilya stars na nakakaaway niya, katulad nina Luis Manzano, Anne Curtis, Vice Ganda, KC Concepcion at ang kanyang (ex) bestfriend na si Toni Gonzaga.

Last Sunday, October 3, ay ipinalabas sa The Buzz ang sagot naman ng mga naturang stars tungkol sa mga sinabi ni Mariel.

1. Luis Manzano. Nagsimula ang isyu kina Luis at Mariel dahil sa umano'y panlalaglag daw ng TV host-actress sa kaibigan at sa minsan naging co-host niya sa Wowowee na si Luis.

Ayon sa balita, nakarating diumano kay Robin ang insidente kung saan muntik nang halikan ni Luis si Mariel sa Wowowee. Dahil dito, tumawag daw si Robin para kumprontahin si Luis. Balitang agad na itinanggi raw ito ni Luis.

Subalit ayon sa intriga, nalaman diumano ni Luis na mismong si Mariel ang nagsumbong kay Robin. Bagay na ikinasama raw ng loob ni Luis.

Hirit ni Mariel: "What?! I don't even know that. I have no idea."

Buwelta ni Luis: Sa showbiz talk show na Entertainment Live noong Sabado, October 2, nagsalita na si Luis tungkol sa isyung ito.

Pag-amin niya, "Kung sabihin mong may issue ba kami ni Mariel, wala naman sigurong isyu sa aming dalawa. Siguro kaya kong sabihin to be perfectly honest, siguro ako may konting tampo sa kanya."

Pagkaklaro pa ni Luis, ang umikot na balita tungkol sa pagkumpronta umano sa kanya ni Robin ay hindi raw totoo.

"Eto, kaya kong sabihin para maklaro rin ang pangalan niya. Never po akong tinawagan ni Binoe [palayaw ni Robin]. May lumabas kasi na isyu na tumawag sa akin si Binoe na medyo confrontational. Gusto kong i-clarify yun once and for all, never kaming nag-usap ni Binoe."

Pero ang tunay na dahilan ng tampo ni Luis kay Mariel ayaw na raw niyang idetalye pa. Pero may nabago raw sa samahan nila.

"Sabihin nating ganito, siguro may pinagbago kung in terms of kung paano kami ni Mariel. Pero siguro hindi namin masisi dahil sa mga pangyayari sa mga buhay-buhay namin," sabi niya.

2. Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda. Sumunod namang bumuwelta ay sina Anne at Vice. Base sa mga balita, si Anne daw ang naglantad ng diumano'y hindi magagandang sinasabi ni Mariel tungkol kay Toni Gonzaga.

Hirit ni Mariel: "You know I was just texting with Anne the other day, never kami ni Anne nagkaroon ng isyu. Let's not drag Anne into this. How come everyone [is being involved]? That's my question, why everyone? I don't understand."

Buwelta ni Anne: Nang subukang kunin ng The Buzz ang panig ni Anne tungkol sa isyu, nakakagulat at makahulugan ang naging reaksiyon ng aktres. Tinalikuran lang ni Anne ang staff na nagtatanong sa kanya.

Buwelta ni Vice: Sa isang banda naman, si Vice Ganda na naging tulay umano, kaya nakakarating kay Toni ang masasakit na salita mula kay Mariel, ay nagsabi:

"Bilang kaibigan ni Toni at kaibigan din naman ni Mariel, alam ko kung ano ang nangyayari sa kanila. Yun lang. Pero yung sangkot na kaya sila nag-away nang dahil sa akin, walang katotohanan yun."

3. KC Concepcion. Nag-ugat naman ang intriga kina KC at Mariel dahil sinabi umano ni Mariel na bakit may sariling show agad si KC na Simply KC gayo'ng mas nauna raw siya rito sa showbiz.

Hirit ni Mariel: "I have no issue with KC at all. I was so surprised. Natatandaan ko, ako pa nga yung unang-unang nag-guest sa Simply KC. Natatandaan ko na tuwing maganda siya sa The Buzz, lagi ko pa siyang pinupuri. Bakit naman nilalagyan ng mga tao ng masasamang [isyu]. I don't know what the issue still is. I really don't know, but I have no issue at all with KC."

"Thank you, kasi never siyang nagpakita sa akin ng kahit na anong masama. On my part, I don't think rin na meron akong nagawa sa kanya o napakita na masama. I even remember saying na 'ang galing niya.' Siya ang unang nakapansin nito," ani Mariel bilang pagtukoy na si KC ang unang nakapansin sa engagement ring nang mag-guest siya sa The Buzz.

"I don't know what the issue is. Thank you, kasi wala rin siyang sinabing masama, I respect her."

Buwelta ni KC: Bilang isa sa hosts ng The Buzz, live na sinagot ni KC ang mga sinabing ito ni Mariel. Maski siya ay naguguluhan din kung ano ba ang totoong isyu sa kanila ni Mariel. Marami lang daw kasi siyang naririnig.

Aniya, "Sa mga narinig ko, she was saying some things about my show, yung Simply KC. Bakit daw ako may show?

"Ang masasagot ko dun, hindi ko narinig yun straight from her, usap-usapan yun. At the same time, kung totoo man yun, mahal ko yung show ko, mahal ko yung trabaho ko, in the same way na mahal niya yung trabaho niya.

"And hindi rin involved yung mom ko [Sharon Cuneta]. So, hindi naman siguro dahil sa kanya kaya naibigay sa akin yung show.

"But let's all be happy with each other. I'm happy for her because she has her lovelife, her personal life. Kung totoo man yun, let's all be happy with each other kasi each of us, meron tayong io-offer sa mga audience, sa mga taong nanonood sa atin."

Hindi pa raw sila nagkakausap nang personal ni Mariel.

"Ang dami ko kasing naririnig, so I don't know how to react. Where do I start? Kasi parang she's denying it. She said, she never said anything.

"Pero marami rin naman akong naririnig not just from one person, sa totoo lang. And ako kasi, I'm very direct.

"Sabi ko nga kina Charlene [Gonzalez, The Buzz co-host], kung totoong friend ka...kasi nagte-text naman kami before. O kahit hindi mo ako kaibigan, kung meron kang gustong sabihin tungkol sa akin... Kung kaya mong sabihin sa ibang tao, dapat kaya mo ring sabihin sa harap ko."

Bilang manager at kaibigan ni Mariel, sinabi naman ni Boy Abunda na matapos daw ang The Buzz interview, tatlong beses niya raw tinanong kay Mariel sa iba't ibang pagkakataon kung may problema ba ito kay KC.

Tatlong beses rin daw na pareho ang naging sagot nito, "Wala."

Para tuloy kay KC, hindi na raw niya alam kung sino at ano ang kanyang paniniwalaan.

"Personally, hindi ko na alam kung sino ang paniniwalaan," sabi ni KC. "She's been denying it. And I know if I confront her, she'll be denying it nang harap-harapan.

"Pero kasi hindi kasi maiiwasan yung doubt na bakit ang daming hindi magkakakilala na nagsasabi sa akin na may sinabi siya sa akin na iba-iba. Yun lang. But I'm not saying na kinu-confirm ko na siya [ang nagsabi nun]."



4. Toni Gonzaga. Sa lahat ng mga taong nakaalitan ni Mariel, kay Toni Gonzaga raw siya talaga nasasaktan dahil malalim ang kanilang pinagsamahan. Hindi lang sila naging magkatrabaho sa maraming Kapamilya shows kundi naging matalik pang magkaibigan.

Matatandang naunang nagsabi si Toni ng sama ng loob niya kay Mariel sa presscon ng Kokey@Ako. Hindi man idinetalye ni Toni noon ang ugat ng pinag-awayan nila ni Mariel, ayon sa mga naisulat na bali-balita ay may sinabi diumano si Mariel na ikinasama ng loob ni Toni.

Pakiramdam daw ni Toni ay na-betray siya. Dinamdam ito ni Mariel at sinabing never siyang nag-traydor sa kanyang mga kaibigan.

Hirit ni Mariel: "Gusto kong maalala yung friendship namin ni Toni for how it was. Pinapahalagahan ko ang mga kaibigan ko. Marunong akong mag-value ng kaibigan. I never said I was perfect but I know in my heart and I'm sure lahat ng mga naging kaibigan ko at mga kaibigan ko, alam nila na ni minsan wala akong kaibigan na trinaydor. I've been a good friend."

May mensahe pa si Mariel kay Toni: "Toni was like a sister to me. I'm not here para makipag-away. I'm here to entertain people, to spread peace, love and happiness. That's my message for Toni... love and happiness."

Buwelta ni Toni: Absent sa The Buzz si Toni last week nang ipalabas ang interview kay Mariel, kaya kahapon lang siya nagkaroon ng pagkakataon na magsalita.

Ani Toni, "I guess siguro para sa akin, once and for all, a lot has been said and done. Marami na ang naisulat, marami na ang nagbigay ng opinyon, marami na ang nag-pass ng judgment.

"Sa lahat ng mga taong na-involve, pinili na nina Anne, Luis, Vice na huwag nang magsalita pa kasi mas lalaki pa, mas marami pang taong mai-involve, masasaktan.

"Siguro one thing that I would take away from this whole experience is that I learned so much about the guys in the industry, about friendships. And that's one thing siguro na babaunin ko siguro yung mga natutuhan ko dito sa mga naranasan ko."

Makahulagan naman ang naging pahayag ni Toni, nang mapadako ang usapan nila kung nakapag-usap ba sila ni Mariel.

"Okay yung confrontation, e, okay yung diretsahan, e. Pero ang hirap at hindi ka mananalo kapag ang kausap mo ay hindi na nagsasabi ng totoo. You will lose in an argument pag ang kalaban mo ay hindi na nagiging totoo sa iyo," sabi niya.

Tila may patama pa si Toni kay Mariel sa mga sunod pa niyang sinabi:

"This will serve as a lesson not just for me but for everyone watching. Bakit nangyayari lahat at the same time? Bakit sunud-sunod?

"Because what you sow is what you reap. Yun ang sana baunin nating lahat na kung ano yung tinanim mo kasi, magbubunga 'yan, e."



Sabi naman ni Boy, kinausap niya raw si Mariel pagkatapos ilantad ni Toni sa Kokey@Ako presscon ang tungkol sa sama ng loob niya kay Mariel.

"Inilatag niya sa akin," sabi ni Boy. "Pero hindi ako pupunta kay Toni, kay KC para sabihin this is the side of Mariel. Hindi, ayoko talaga.

"Because I want peace. Naniniwala ako na bigyan lang kayo ng oras, magkakaayos kayo. Hanggang ngayon, 'yan ang paniniwala ko. Because ang pinakagrabe sa problemang ito ay it was you, Toni, and Mariel because you were closest.

"Sabi ko nga, ang hirap sumali sa problema na hindi ka naman talaga kasali. So, I was talking about my position.

"So, when Mariel said it was the last time she will talk about it, ako sinasabi ko with hope and a prayer na sana down the road, really one day, lalambot ang lahat, mapag-uusapan, mapagtatawanan.

"And Toni is right, we will remember our learnings."



TV5 Allocates P10B to Battle ABS-CBN, GMA-7

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




MEDIAQUEST Holdings Inc., the operator of TV5, is allocating P10 billion in the next four years to build state-of-the art facilities, an official said Friday.

We are on a start-up period. We are rebuilding everything,” company president Atty. Ray Espinosa said.

We don’t look at the income yet, so we know that we will incur losses in the first few years. We have a five-year plan, and based on that, we are working towards being profitable on year five.

Espinosa said the company would earmark P9 billion to P10 billion from next year up to 2014 to acquire new transmitters and a facility in Mandaluyong City that would house six studios by 2012, bringing TV5’s number of studios to 10 in two years.

We plan to break ground in November,” Espinosa said.

We plan to transfer the news block in September next year, and the balance will be a year after.”

The expenses on the ultra-high frequency channel, which would be under Nation Broadcasting Co., a commercial UHF television station owned by the First Pacific conglomerate, and radio stations would eat up most of the budget.

The programming costs would reach P2 billion this year and P1 billion next year, Espinosa said. The TV network would be going international soon and would be tapping “the same market currently tapped by the two networks.”

We want to get that market as soon as possible as there are revenues that come from overseas distribution,” Espinosa said.

TV5 had established TV5 Global, which is in charge of promoting the network’s programs abroad, and was now developing its online portal that would contain news and shows aired in the TV network.

We are strengthening our new media,” Espinosa said.

Roberto Barreiro, executive vice-president and chief operating officer of TV5, said the TV network had been able to secure a 10-percent share of the audience nationwide and 12 percent in Metro Manila.

We just want double-digit market shares, and we were able to do that on our first year,” Barreiro said.

Now the targets have been upgraded.”

Barreiro said the network was now seeking permits to expand in 50 areas nationwide, and that its coverage had reached 70 percent. The target was 85-percent coverage by the end of this year and 95 percent by June 2011.

Advertisers were now receptive to the network as a result of its improving ratings and reach, Espinosa said.

We offer a new platform and a new outlet for [advertisers], and obviously, our rates our lower with them on a negotiated basis,” he said.

Sid Lucero and 'Dahil May Isang Ikaw', Nominated in The 2010 International Emmy Award

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)




Sid Lucero is a Best Actor nominee for his performance in Dahil May Isang Ikaw in the 2010 International Emmy Awards.

The Philippines once again captured the prestigious International Emmy nods courtesy of Sid Lucero (Timothy Mark Pimentel Eigenmann) and his teleserye "Dahil May Isang Ikaw."

The 38th International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced its list of nominees from around the world (except the US), and Sid Lucero is nominated for the Best Actor category while his teleserye "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" is nominated for Best Telenovela category.


Sid is vying for the coveted trophy against Bob Hoskins (The Street – United Kingdom), Sebastian Koch (Sea Wolf – Germany), and Leonardo Sbaraglia (Epitafios – Argentina).

Dahil May Isang Ikaw, on the other hand, is competing against two other telenovelas: Ciega a Citas from Argentina and My Love from Portugal.

The winners will be announced at a black-tie ceremony on November 22, 2010 in New York, to hosted by Beverly Hills 90210 actor Jason Priestly.

Last year, the Philippines got three nominations: Best Actress for Angel Locsin for her performance in Lobo, Best Telenovela for GMA-7′s Magdusa Ka and ABS-CBN’s Kahit Isang Saglit.

No Filipino actor or tv program has won an International Emmy to date.

Past to Present: 11 Women Who Couldn't Resist Robin Padilla

Posted by JED on , under | comments (3)




Robin Padilla was dubbed as "The Bad Boy of Philippine Movies" following the huge success of his action flicks in the '80s. Aside from his films, he was also known as a ladies' man. Based on his relationship track record, Robin is one man whose appeal cuts across a broad spectrum of ladies who couldn't resist his charm.

Here is a long list of women wooed and smitten by Robin Padilla’s machismo and charm:

Jobelle Salvador
Robin and Jobelle Salvador met on the set of his indie film “Carnap King” in 1989. That started a love affair that brought forth a son, Jeremiah Joseph Leroy Salvador, now 19 years old. Based in the US, he was named after his grandpa, the late filmmaker Leroy Salvador.

Despite the attribution to Robin as Jeremiah’s dad, the identity of the boy's father was the subject of a puzzle--was it Robin (a.k.a. Binoe) or Jobelle's former boyfriend, broadcaster-writer-actor Erik Espina? Salvador did not confirm anything publicly and even Erik, as a matter of fact, had requested for a DNA test, which has not reportedly been done to date.

Leah Orosa
Robin and Leah Orosa were paired off in Viva Films’ “Sa Diyos Lang Ako Susuko”. Then sprung a love story between the young Casanova and the mestiza model. The liaison bore them a daughter, Camille, who now lives with Orosa abroad.

Kris Aquino
It was Pinoy showbiz news icon, the late Inday Badiday, who introduced Robin and Kris Aquino to each other. It was a colorful romance. Kris was 18 when Robin, then in his early 20s, became her boyfriend. Rumor had it that the two had planned to elope. They eventually broke up because Robin was still in his "unstable" stage back then. In 2003, Kris and Robin made a movie whose title described their former relationship, You and Me Against the World. In 2003, Robin and Kris teamed up on TV for ABS-CBN’s “Basta't Kasama Kita.”

Melissa Perez-Rubio
What did Melissa Perez-Rubio, Kris Aquino and Sharon Cuneta have in common? Robin, of course, and Richard Gomez (a.k.a. Goma), too. All three women became the girlfriends of Robin and Richard.

Sharon Cuneta
Robin and Sharon Cuneta fell in love on the set of Viva Films’ “Maging Sino Ka Man” in 1994. Binoe and Goma were rivals in the heart of Sharon. They were rivals too, in popularity, and were each other’s nemesis. They even physically punched each other because of their love interests.

Liezl Sycangco
Robin and Liezl Sycangco were married in Muslim wedding rites in 1996 at the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa where Padilla was incarcerated for illegal possession of firearms. Everyone thought Robin and Liezl's union would last. In 2008, however, the two called it quits officially. They have 4 children.

Vina Morales
Robin and Vina Morales's love story is said to be the most sensational. It was the very first time Morales ever fell in love. The two first met when they did the movie “Miss na Miss Kita: Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum 2.”

Ruffa Gutierrez
It was again Inday Badiday who introduced Robin to a lady love, this time, beauty queen-host Ruffa Gutierrez. They were paired off in Badiday’s film production of “Lab Kita, Bilib Ka Ba?” (1994). Unfortunately, there were several obstacles that kept them from getting any closer. For starters, Ruffa's mom Anabelle Rama wasn't exactly into Robin. That was also the same year that Robin got arrested. Still, rumor had it that he had gone as far as proposing to Ruffa.

Dolly Anne Carvajal
The public went gaga when Dolly Anne, the daughter of Inday Badiday, revealed that she had hooked up with Robin. While Robin was mum about the issue, Dolly Anne has been more forthcoming. In an article by showbiz writer Chit Ramos, Dolly Anne was asked what is was like to be with Robin. She replied, "Kailangan pa bang itanong 'yon? Marami namang nakarelasyon niya ang nagsasabi ng sinabi ko. Tinatrato [kang] reyna, iyon 'yon." When asked to elaborate, Dolly Anne revealed that Robin was a tireless lover.

Judy Ann Santos
When Robin and Judy Ann starred in the ABS-CBN action-drama teleserye Basta't Kasama Kita, which aired in 2003, it wasn't long before they were rumored to be together. However, showbiz pundits who were sympathetic to Judy Ann's plight, said there was nothing going on between them. In fact, Boy Abunda wrote in his Philippine Star column: "Judy Ann Santos is being forcibly dragged into the marital imbroglio of Robin Padilla and wife Liezel Sicangco, now based in Queensland, Australia with their four children. This is grossly unfair for Juday, who to my mind is one of the most hardworking actors in showbiz."



Mariel Rodriguez
TV host Mariel Rodriguez is Robin's latest conquest despite a 17-year age gap. They met this year on the set of ABS-CBN's noontime TV show "Wowowee." He married Rodriguez in India last August after a whirlwind courtship.
