Cristine Reyes Allegedly S&%ually Harrased By Hospital Security Guard

Posted by JED on , under | comments (9)




Kapamilya sexy actress Cristine Reyes cries foul after she discovered a hospital security guard of Bulacan Medical Center peeking at her while she was changing clothes during a location shoot of her upcoming ABS-CBN TV series "Reputasyon" last May 17.

"Nagbibihis ako nasa hospital kami. 'Di ba 'yong door nila may salamin so makikita mo kung sino ang nasa loob. Lumabas kasi ako ng banyo na naka-cycling shorts lang, although may t-shirt naman ako. Nakatayo siya doon tapos nakasilip siya," tells Cristine.

"Tapos sumenyas ako alis po kayo. Hindi siya umaalis. Mukha niya parang 'Ano ang sinasabi niya?' Pero alam naman naming dalawa kung ano ang dapat mong gawin, na alam mong may nagbibihis. Dapat umalis ka na," she further narrated.

Cristine also said that she went up to confront the guard when she felt he has no intention to leave.

"Sabi ko 'Kuya bakit kayo sumisilip alam niyo naman na nagbibihis ako?' So ang initial reaction naman talaga kapag ang babae na-violate ang privacy, ang masasabi mo talaga parang bastos kung sino man iyon," Cristine related.

But instead of apologizing, Cristine said the guard shouted at her and even made a scene.

"Sila ang nag-reklamo sa lahat. Bakit ko daw sila sinabihan ng bastos, bakit ko daw sila pinahiya. Napakalaki ng reaction nila eh ako na nga ang na-violate nila. Dinala pa niya asawa niya galit na galit eh hindi naman alam ng asawa niya kung ano ang nangyari. Hindi naman ako nagrereklamo na dapat niyong alisin sa trabaho or something. At least nasabi ko lang 'yong sakin." she said.

However, the alleged suspect denied the malicious charged and said that he was just doing a regular rounds of the rooms in the hospital.

While the management of the hospital reportedly apologized already to the sexy actress.

"The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition" Hosted by Sharon Cuneta with Derek Ramsay Premieres Monday, May 30

Posted by JED on , under | comments (5)




The transformation of the lives of 12 overweight Filipinos finally begins on Monday (May 30) in the much-awaited premiere of one of Philippine TV's biggest reality shows in history, The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition.

Witness success stories as they happen as the contestants undergo emotional and physical challenges to get in shape and change the course of their lives towards winning P1 million, a condominium unit from DMCI Homes, a Vespa scooter and the title "The Very First Pinoy Biggest Loser."

ABS-CBN's newest reality TV show offering also marks the return of Philippine Showbiz's one and only Megastar Sharon Cuneta to primetime. Joining her is actor-sports enthusiast Derek Ramsay, who will serve as the game master during the program's challenges.

Over the past week, ABS-CBN revealed the identities of its 12 contestants - seven males and five females - who all have heartfelt stories that can bring both tears and inspiration to every Filipino.

Architect Alan Choachuy wants to lose weight to be able to meet and watch his grandchildren grow. Art Mendoza, who recently separated from his wife, doesn't want to die obese and not be able to live out his dream. Eboy Bautista, meanwhile, has always been on the heavy side, but the death of his father has got him thinking about his own mortality.

There is also Eric Limatog, an emotional eater, who ballooned to his current weight due to his mother's illness, and fire volunteer JM Oloris who is afraid that people will tease his children because of his weight. Raffy Tan, who lost his parents in a gruesome crime, wants to be healthy so that he can give his sister a good future, while Ryan Razon hopes to learn to love himself and no longer be the 'not-so-good-looking Razon son.'"

Among the women, there is Angela Lupango who is desperate to shed the pounds so she could start a family with her husband and Winwin Cabinta who wants to finally look like a real lady after being mistaken for a tomboy most of her life.

Edden Cruz joined the show because she believes she can't afford to get sick as her children depend on her. Hazel Chua took the challenge so her parents will be proud of her. Meanwhile, Joy Siy said she is doing this for herself and no one else. Through the show, they hope to not just lose weight but to also gain confidence and knowledge that will make them better persons after.

In the show's first weeks, the contestants will be divided into two teams - the Red Team will be trained by U.S. certified fitness specialist and mixed martial artist Chinggay Andrada while the Blue Team will be guided by sports scientist Jim Saret who was recently appointed by the Philippine Olympic Committee as head trainer of the National Team.

Each week, there will be a weigh-in. The team with the higher percentage of weight loss will be safe from elimination, while members of the losing team will each decide who they want to eliminate from their group.

Sharon, who recently opened up about her own battle against weight gain in the program's first primer Bigating Pinoy, said that the program hopes to change the lives of the viewers as much as the contestants. She said the program will impart guidance and information that Filipinos can use to start leading healthy lives and in building a stronger nation.

"Remember that when you choose to have a healthy lifestyle, you are given more time to become a father, a mother, a child, a sibling or friend to the people you hold close to your heart," she said.

Get to know more about the show and the contestants on the second-part of the primer titled Bigating Simula: The Road to the Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition, this Sunday, May 29, 11:15am on ABS-CBN.

GMA News TV's RH Bill: The Grand Debate Airs Again This Saturday

Posted by JED on , under | comments (1)




Due to insistent public demand, GMA News TV will air once more the most talked about debate on television - the RH Bill: The Grand Debate - this Saturday on Channel 11.

Pitting lawmakers versus lawmakers, the church versus the church, and women versus women, GMA News TV brings together debaters from each camp to discuss the impact of the Reproductive Health Bill on the country's economy, on the morality of Filipinos and on the health of women. Compelling arguments for both sides are given equal airtime in this enlightening and often surprising two-hour special.

Rep. Janette Garin, one of the primary authors of the proposed bill is pitted against Rep. Ma. Milagros Magsaysay on the issue of the RH Bill's effect on poverty. Novaliches Bishop Emeritus Teodoro Bacani, Jr. and Bishop Efraim Tendero, National Director of the Philippine Council for Evangelical Churches debate on the issue of morality. Celebrity mom and RH Bill advocate Pia Magalona faces off against University of the Philippines Prof. Aliza Racelis on women's issues in relation to the bill.

A panel of interrogators subject the debaters to intense grilling. Outspoken RH Bill activist Carlos Celdran, former Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel, and UP Prof. Dr. Sylvia Claudio make up the pro-RH panel while the anti-RH panel members are Kalookan Bishop Deogracias Iñiguez Jr., University of Asia and the Pacific College of Arts and Science Dean Antonio Torralba, and Dr. Deane Campo-Cruz. Congressman Manny Pacquiao makes a surprise appearance during the debate.

RH Bill: The Grand Debate gives viewers the chance to quietly listen to both sides and appreciate their arguments. The program aims to shed light on this divisive issue instead of simply generating more heat. Hosted and moderated by Mel Tiangco, together with Pia Arcangel and RJ Ledesma, RH Bill: The Grand Debate airs again this Saturday, May 28, at 10:10 pm.

Saif Ali Khan Denies Poking Fun at Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Saif Ali Khan's remarks about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's presence at the festival every year, with or without a film to promote, said, "Maybe because she is a pretty face" sparked a controversy.

News websites picked up Saif's remark, saying how the actor feels that Ash is just a 'pretty face'. A website even went ahead to say that an actor, however big or small would definitely feel angry on being referred as pretty but not talented.

However, Saif is shocked to hear about the misinterpretation of what he had to say about Ash. "I was asked about the relevance of Ash going to Cannes and I said she is the international face of India.

I said we should be proud about her beautiful face. One website quoted me verbatim, complimenting Ash, which is what I meant in the first place. But others have misquoted me. I would never say something like that about her." - TIMES OF INDIA


Kara DioGuardi Developing New Docu-Series for Bravo

Former "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi has teamed up with Bravo to develop a new docu-series.

The "KARA" project takes a glimpse inside the music business through the perspective of songwriter-producer DioGuardi, who also serves as head judge on the cable network's upcoming music competition series "Platinum Hit," making its debut May 30.

"'KARA' is the perfect addition to our latest development slate," said Eli Lehrer, Vice President of development for Bravo, in a statement. "People have one perception of DioGuardi, but this series will peek behind the curtain and reveal much more interesting and multi-faceted aspects of this incredibly successful, talented artist and business woman."

Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, of the Chaz Bono documentary "Becoming Chaz," along with Tom Campbell serve as executive producers, as do DioGuardi and Stephen Finfer. - REUTERS

Sam and Enrique lead their group in a dance showdown.

Viewers of ABS-CBN’s youth-oriented program “Good Vibes” went to Facebook to express their reaction to Arron Villaflor and Kristel Moreno’s kissing scene in last week’s episode.

Poster Jane Bubblegem said, “Grabe tlga ang epi ngayon…hot na hot!” While Nicole Quilang-Grapa Waldato commented, “panu kaya pagmalaman ni mark yan..!!!..nakunaku.”

The much-talked about episode got a 9.1 percent rating, edging out Tween Hearts, which got only 7.8 percent based on the nationwide overnight TV ratings last May 22 from Kantar Media.

This Sunday (May 29), viewers are expected to tune in again, especially because the Sinagdiwa dance crew led by Sam and Enrique Gil will finally reveal the dance routine they have been working on very hard.

Their group will face the three-time defending champion to become the best high school dance crew in the whole Metro Manila. Will their group finally make it or will they buckle under pressure?

Meanwhile. James Reid and Devon Seron recently celebrated their 18th birthday together, thanks to their fans who threw a party for them. James said he wanted another season of “Good Vibes.” Devon, meanwhile, got emotional during her turn to make a wish.

She said, “sana matapos ko pag-aaral ko at makapagtapos yung mga kapatid ko.” It is common knowledge that Devon joined Pinoy Big Brother because she wants to help send her siblings to school.

Devon also shared how much she can relate to her character in “Good Vibes.” Like her, Maribeth comes from a poor family but is working hard to reach for her dreams so she can help her family.
I am like Maribeth, even if she’s poor, she manages to survive – and no matter what happens, she remains happy with her family,” she said.

Watch out for Sam, Enrique, Arron, Kristel, James, Devon and the whole Good Vibes crew every Sunday (May 29), after “ASAP Rocks” on ABS-CBN.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Divorce with Maria Shriver To Cost Him $200M

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




London, May 27 (PTI) - ''Terminator'' star Arnold Schwarzenegger's divorce from his wife Maria Shriver could cost him about USD 200 million.

The 63-year-old actor split from his wife of 25 years earlier this month and she is now set to begin divorce proceedings against him following the revelation he fathered a child with their former housekeeper Mildred ''Patty'' Baena.

It is thought that their assets, estimated between USD 200 and 400 million, could be divided evenly, reported Sun online.

While the estranged couple is believed to have a prenuptial agreement, because of the former California governor''s infidelity and the length of the marriage, it could be voided.

They would then have to split their net worth as per Californian law. Although Maria hasn''t announced official divorce plans yet, she is believed to have hired top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser.

"She''ll get every last penny she is entitled to," a source said.

This divorce could be showbiz''s biggest divorce settlement. It would dwarf the USD 1.4 million that basketball star Michael Jordan paid ex Juanita Vanoy in 2007, the current celebrity record. And it is more than twice what Tiger Woods is said to have given Elin Nordegren in their split.

Warner Bros. rolls out another eye-popping trailer of the fantasy action-adventure “Green Lantern.” The trailer, which was essentially created for 3D theaters, can be viewed below:





Bringing the enduringly popular superhero to the big screen for the first time, “Green Lantern” stars Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in the title role, under the direction of Martin Campbell (“Casino Royale”).




In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Reynolds).

Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.

Opening across the Philippines on June 16 in 3D, 2D and regular format, “Green Lantern” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

GMA-7 Wins Gold Award in the Institute of Corporate Directors’ (ICD) Corporate Governance Scoreboard

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




GMA Network continues to be one of the best-managed companies in the country.

ICD is a non-profit organization working in close partnership with government and civil society organizations to promote the practice of good corporate governance.

In a statement Thursday, GMA Network said it got the gold award after it garnered 96.8 percent in the ICD’s 2010 Corporate Governance Scoreboard.


Adherence to standards

The award is a testament of GMA Network’s strict adherence to the standards of corporate governance… The recognition strengthens our belief that [daily] operations should be bound by virtues of integrity and transparency,” said Ari Chio, GMA Network’s vice president for investor relations.

The award - the second for the broadcast giant - was given at the ICD’s 8th Annual Dinner held recently at the Rigodon Ballroom of the Peninsula Hotel Manila. The network got the silver award last year.

The company [GMA Network] managed to enhance its compliance with the provisions of good corporate governance as it made the cut to the gold award this year,” according to the GMA Network’s statement.

The network was one of 16 gold awardees that garnered an average of 95 percent and higher in five categories, including practices related to the rights of shareholders, equitable treatment of shareholders, role of stakeholders, disclosure and transparency, and board responsibility.

The corporate governance scorecard project - now in its sixth year - was administered by ICD’s partners like the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Philippine Stock Exchange, the Institute of Internal Auditors of the Philippines, the Ateneo Law School, and the Center for International Private Enterprise.

Lisa Kudrow, best known for her roles as Ursula on Mad About You and Phoebe on Friends, will host the 15th annual Webby Awards happening on June 13 ceremony at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

One of her duties is to ensure that award winners stick to Webby protocol by limiting their acceptance speeches to just five words.

Kudrow is also a winner herself. She won the Webby for best individual performance in an online video for her performance in her series "Web Therapy." The show also won the award for best long-form comedy for the second year in a row.

Jennifer Lopez Might Not Return as ‘American Idol’ Judge

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




As American Idol season 10 bids farewell yesterday, Jennifer Lopez's future as judge on the show might end there too.

Fox News reports that Lopez, who has boosted ratings and attracted rave reviews since joining eight months ago, seems uncertain whether she'll come back for the show's 11th season.

The FOX big-wigs were wise enough to have Steven Tyler, who secured his spot as the fan favorite, sign a multi-year contract that will ensure he returns for the 11th season alongside original judge, Randy Jackson.

A source also overheard the Aerosmith rocker happily confirm Wednesday that he’ll be back for another round. (Based on the rumors that he earned $18 million for the first season alone, it’s no wonder he’s enthusiastic.)

“They can’t get rid of Tyler, he’s the new Paula,” reality television and pop culture expert Mikey Glazer told FOX411's Pop Tarts.

But Lopez, who signed for significantly less money (a reported $12 million), isn’t so sure of her future.

“It’s too early to tell,” the 41-year-old told FOX411.

Lopez is believed to be in negotiations with the network, and an offer is said to be on the table.

"Everyone has multiple year contracts; Jennifer had single year contract, we loved having her, the hope and expectation is she'll return," FOX Chief Peter Rice earlier this week."

Winchester Brothers Reunite in "Supernatural" Season 6 on AXN Beyond

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Manila, Philippines – Having battled Archangel Michael and the Devil himself, as well as stopping the prophesied Apocalypse at the end of the last season, one would have thought that it couldn't get any worse for the demon-hunting Winchester brothers.

Indeed, the war won with the help of the few remaining fellow hunters and rebel angel Castiel (Misha Collins, 24) left Sam (Jared Padalecki, Friday the 13th, House of Wax) imprisoned in Hell, while Dean (Jensen Ackles, Dark Angel, Smallville), resigned to losing his elder brother, swore to retire from their lifelong hunt for evil, never to return.


Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester


Yet, the sixth and latest season of the hit paranormal adventure drama series Supernatural, now airing Mondays to Fridays, 9:50pm first and exclusively on AXN Beyond, will be darker and more sinister, as the Winchester brothers’ relationship faces its toughest test yet...


Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester


Following last season’s spectacular conclusion of the five-season story arc envisioned by the creator Eric Kripke (Boogeyman), Supernatural continues to reinvent itself, with fellow executive producer Sera Gamble (Eyes) helming the latest season that comes complete with a fresh story arc.

As Supernatural picks up a year on in the new season, Dean picks up the pieces of his life and settles down in the suburbs with his old flame, Lisa. He is now a construction worker, a good boyfriend to Lisa, and a surrogate father to her son, Ben.

But as Heaven and Hell were left in utter pandemonium since the apocalyptic events of last season, monsters, demons and angels now traverse the chaotic and lawless Earth. Dean finds himself being dragged back to the demon-hunting life that he is trying to leave behind. He is pulled by none other than Sam, who is mysteriously freed from Hell.

And Sam is not alone. He introduces Dean to their maternal family he never knew existed. Headed by their grandfather Samuel (Mitch Pileggi, The X-Files), the Campbells are a line of hunters stretching back to the very beginnings of America where they were already ‘hacking heads off vampires on the Mayflower’, and they want Sam and Dean to carry on the family tradition.

Reuniting to fight the growing wave of paranormal evil with shape-shifters, vampires, werewolves, ‘Djinn’ and more, the brothers come to realize that neither are who they used to be and their brotherly ties are no longer what they were. As they grapple with their complicated relationship, the brothers learn also about their mother's family. Away from being mere pawns in the epic war between Heaven and Hell, the Winchester brothers return to their hard-boiled supernatural investigator, demon-hunter and ‘noir’ hero selves in what new showrunner Sera Gamble promises to be a season of ‘gritty darkness’.

However, the latest season also continues in the irreverent spirit that makes Supernatural the cool and exciting series it is. Fans can expect to see Eve, the ‘Mother of All’; Fate herself; and even fairy ‘Tinkerbell’, all in person. That will be on top of Heaven-deserting angel Balthazar going back in time to ‘un-sink’ the Titanic, and even an episode that pokes fun at the current romantic fascination with vampires, popularized by the Twilight phenomenon.

With no one being who they seem to be and everyone having ulterior motives, viewers will be treated to a plateful of twists, double-crosses, and secrets in this new and exciting season of Supernatural, airs Mondays to Fridays at 9.50pm only on AXN Beyond.
