Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi After-Wedding Interview Video: What if Carmina said 'No!'? "Lalayasan ko siya!" - Zoren

Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi After-Wedding Interview Video: What if Carmina said 'No!'? "Lalayasan ko siya!" - Zoren



It was a wedding like no other. And the bride didn’t even or was the last to know.

Carmina Villarroel was clueless what was in store for her when she showed up with then live-in partner Zoren Legaspi and their twins Mavy and Cassy at Fernbrooks Garden in Alabang, Muntinlupa made up to look like a venue for a formal affair which Carmina thought was for the shoot of a family-oriented commercial for Selecta, the ice-cream brand they are endorsing. Little did she know that before the day is over, she would be officially, legally and finally Mrs. Zoren Legaspi. 

So how did it happen that Carmina was really in the dark all this time even if, weeks earlier, her manager Dolor Guevarra had been texting their close friends an invitation “to an important event on November 15” and for them “to come in smart-casuals,” with a strict reminder to keep everything under wraps?

In connivance with friends (among them Dolor and A-list talent manager Shirley Kuan, together with the Selecta guys), Zoren hatched an idea that Carmina and their twins would cherish all their lives. Yes, the twins were in on the confidential mission, bless them!

The family woke up early that day and arrived at the set fully prepared for the shoot, dressed to the nines. It was a formal affair (supposedly for the TVC, remember?). Zoren was in tuxedo while Carmina was resplendent in a dress specially designed by Paul Cabral (one of the “conspirators”). The twins were likewise in their sartorial best.

As dusk set in, the cameras started to roll as the “flash mob” entered the scene. Carmina gasped in awe. Enter Zoren, singing a special song for Carmina. They walked towards a made-up Cherry Blossoms Tree under which Carmina sat like a blushing damsel glowing with great expectations. Zoren fell on one of his knees, took out a wedding ring by Harry Winston (the favorite jeweler of the British Royal Family), slipped it into Carmina’s finger and, eyes longing with what could be manna from heaven, proposed almost in a whisper, “Will you marry me?” Of course, Carmina said, “Yes!

And then, the twins appeared as if from nowhere and demanded, “You have to get married tonight…TONIGHT!!!

Already, Carmina started to have just a very slight inkling that “something” was cooking, that everything wasn’t just make-believe although she wasn’t totally convinced - yet!

The shoot continued as the couple gingerly walked down a red carpet towards the second floor of the adjoining building where waited the four ninongs (Eric Quizon, Ben Chan, Felix Ang and John Concepcion of Concepcion Industries, maker of Selecta products) and three ninangs (Kris Aquino, Cory Vidanes and Senatoriable Grace Poe-Llamanzares, each of whom offered a bouquet of roses to the still-unsuspecting but very-real bride. And then the civil ceremony began.

The reception followed at a “holding room” where the couple’s families and select invite guests were “hiding” behind curtains but were made to watch the whole proceedings on a huge monitor. Most of the guests had been asked to keep things a secret.

It was only then that Carmina realized that everything was for real. She shed tears of joy. Zoren planned everything to the last detail, directing every step of the way, including booking for the place of their delayed “honeymoon”.

So the lovely bride didn’t had the chance (or any reason) to say no, if ever she wanted to. In fact, the guests  agreed that Carmina would say “Yes!” with resounding excitement. But what if she said "no!"? What Zoren's reaction would  be if that actually happens? Watch the video interview below of the newlyweds with Janice de Belen for Showbiz Inside Reports:

CineFilipino Extends Deliberation, Festival Date Moved to July 2013



New independent film competition CineFilipino officially announced today that the dates for the much-anticipated film festival have been moved to June 26 to July 2, 2013.

Launched last August 17, CineFilipino received almost 150 full length scripts for its Feature-Length Filmmakers Section. Because of the high number of submissions, the decision was made to extend the deliberation process to devote sufficient time for each submitted work.  

We were pleasantly surprised by the tremendous support we got from the Filipino film community,” says CineFilipino Festival Director Vincent Nebrida.  “Our festival staff and selection committee members are meticulously reviewing all 146 entries. Moving our festival date ensures that there’s enough time for diligent evaluation and review and that nothing is rushed.” 

He also added, “What’s even better is that there is now ample time for these projects to be produced in the best possible fashion.  It's great to have enough time for prep work, and of course, even more time for principal photography and the necessary post work.

According to Nebrida, the Top Eight finalists will be announced on Thursday, January 10, 2013.  Each of the Top Eight finalists will be granted PhP 1.5 million to produce their work. On the other hand, students can still submit their short films until March 29, 2013.

Eugene Domingo, Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola's 'Celebrity Bluff' Premieres Tonight on GMA-7



This November, GMA Network raises the bar in Philippine game shows with the premiere of Celebrity Bluff.  

Three of the country’s biggest names in comedy unite in the much-awaited project – award-winning comedienne/actress Eugene Domingo as Celebrity Bluff host together with well-loved comic tandem of Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola as the celebrity bluffers.




Celebrity Bluff will surely bring happier weekends to every household, as it is not just an ordinary game show. As Eugene Domingo puts it, “Masaya nang laruin, masarap pang panoorin. Kaya naman hindi dapat palampasin ang bawat episode na ihahain namin.”

Three contestants will attempt to outsmart one another by answering questions and performing challenges which will make them advance to the jackpot round where the winning contestant could take home a big amount of cash and other cool prizes.

For round 1 (Unahan), three contestants will answer the questions correctly to earn cash points but the celebrity bluffers, also known as GangNam, will help, confuse or trick the players. Two contestants who accumulate the highest amount of cash points will advance to the next round (Salpukan). 

In Salpukan, the remaining players will perform physical challenges to earn cash points and must outplay the opponent.

The contestant with the highest points at the end of round 2 advances to round 3 (Sagaran), one question will be asked the bluffers (GangNam) wherein they have 6 choices, 4 of which are correct answers. 

The winning player will then decide if he/she will accept or ignore the suggestion of the bluffers. Each correct answer is worth Php. 25, 000 and if the contestant gets 4 answers correctly, he/she could bring home One Hundred Thousand pesos (P100,000) and  have the chance to move on to the All the Way or No Way bonus question where the player could win a whopping half a million pesos. 




During the dry run of the said game show, one contestant shares, “Marami na akong napanood na game shows sa TV. Pero nung na-try ko yung Celebrity Bluff, kakaiba yung excitement na naramdaman ko. Hindi ko inakalang magiging ganito kasaya ang experience ko.”




Weekends will never be the same as Celebrity Bluff premiers on November 17 after 24 Oras Weekend on GMA-7.

The consolidated net income of ABS-CBN Corporation, the country’s largest multimedia conglomerate, registered P1.555 billion for the first nine months of 2012, down by 31% compared with P2.240 billion in the same period last year.

Removing the effects of the gain from the sale of Sky Cable PDRs recognized in the first nine months of 2011 amounting to P825 million, net income increased by 10%. The growth in recurring income was fuelled by strong advertising revenues and consumer sales in the third quarter.

ABS-CBN generated consolidated revenues of P24.0 billion from advertising and consumer sales for the first nine months, a 13% increase compared to the same period last year.

ABS-CBN’s advertising revenues reached P14.5 billion in the first nine months of the year, an increase of 8% from a year ago. Consumer sales for the nine month period amounted to P9.5 billion, posting a 21% increase. Sky Cable continues to be a major driver of growth with revenues increasing by 29% to P4.1 billion. The growth in revenues is partly attributable to the full quarter effect of the acquisition of Destiny Cable.

Total operating and other expenses increased by 14% year-on-year to P19.4 billion brought about by increases in production costs, cost of sales and services , and general and administrative expenses.

Capital expenditure and film and program rights acquisition for the nine month period amounted to P3.5 billion, 8% higher than the level of spending for the same period last year.

ABS-CBN maintained its national audience share and ratings leadership for Urban and Rural audiences with prime-time audience share averaging 49% in the third quarter of 2012, a 21 percentage point lead over GMA’s, based on the Kantar National TV Ratings.

For the third quarter, 16 of the company’s shows were in the Top 20 for Total Philippines (Urban and Rural), with the following occupying the Top 10 slots: Walang Hanggan, Princess & I, Maalaala Mo Kaya, TV Patrol (Weekday), Wansapanataym, Donaire vs. Mathebula, Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition, Rated K Handa na ba Kayo?, Kapamilya Deal or No Deal and Goin’ Bulilit.

ABS-CBN Film Productions, Inc. released 12 films in the first nine months of 2012. Six of them- Enteng ng Ina Mo, Segunda Mano, Unofficially Yours, Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme, The Healing and The Mistress -topped P100 million in box office receipts, earning blockbuster status by local standards. Enteng ng Ina Mo and The Mistress grossed more than P200 million.

Philippines Ranks the World's 10th Top Consumer of Music Downloads



The sheer number of Filipinos downloading music online, legally or otherwise, has made the Philippines the world's 10th most active digital music consumer.

In its "breakdown of top 10 countries for all [music] downloads," the September 2012 edition of the Musicmetric Digital Music Index (DMI) lists the Philippines in 10th place, with 8,380,208 downloads.

On the top spot is the United States with 96,681,133 downloads. It is trailed by the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Spain, India, France and the Philippines, respectively.

The first edition of DMI, according to its preview study, analyzes "the trends and preferences of millions of music fans across the globe."

"The aim is to help the industry understand who and where the fans are, which types of artist fans are engaging with the most and how fans interact with music through the many online consumption channels," Musicmetric said.

Dubbed "the most in-depth study ever of the global digital music landscape," Musicmetric's first DMI also details the preferences of and trends on social media as generated by millions of music followers from every country.

The study also looks into consumers' engagement with digital music worldwide via authorized and unauthorized platforms. Notably, it provides a comprehensive look at the BitTorrent network, where "non-licensed content files [are shared] in vast amounts all over the world."

This is aside from gathering data from the licensed venues for music downloads such as Spotify, Deezer, 7Digital and iTunes.

Musicmetric DMI also monitors the impact of music releases, gigs and television appearances of the counted 750,000 artists on their online profile, and by extension, on digital music consumption patterns.

Ai Ai delas Reunite with Robin Padilla in a TV Project this Saturday



Ai Ai Delas Alas takes the spotlight this week as the veteran comedian guest on “Toda Max” this Saturday (November 17) to continue the sitcom’s month-long anniversary celebration.

This will mark the second episode under the theme “Tribute to ABS-CBN Comedy Shows” wherein veteran guests join in the fun at Beverly Gil’s. This Saturday, Ai Ai will play the role of a woman who claims that she is Tol’s (Robin Padilla) first wife.

It has been a while since I last tried my hand in sitcom. I really appreciate the warm welcome of the Toda Max family and enjoyed my guesting so much,” said Ai Ai.

Meanwhile, after the recent win of “Toda Max” as the Best Comedy Show in the Catholic Mass Media Awards the show is nominated again as Best Comedy/Gag Show for the PMPC Star Awards for TV. Other Kapamilya comedy shows like “Banana Split” and “Goin’ Bulilit” also vie for the award. Also nominated are “Toda Max” stars Robin Padilla and Vhong Navarro for the Best Comedy Actor award and Angel Locsin and Pokwang for the Best Comedy Actress award. Karen Reyes and Myrtle Sarrosa also received nominations for the Best New Female TV Personality for their appearance on the show.

Thank you PMPC Star Awards for seeing all the efforts we put on Toda Max. I didn’t expect to be nominated as Best Comedy Actress especially since Ms. Pokwang, a veteran comedian, is also included in the show. This is really a great honor for me,” said Locsin.

On “Toda Max” this Saturday, Aina (Ai Ai) will introduce herself as Tol’s (Binoe) first wife during the very night that the latter will propose to his girlfriend, Joy (Cristine Reyes). Tol’s romantic advances to Joy will be hindered especially because both Justin (Vhong) and Isabel (Angel) are already being convinced about this.
Is Aina really Tol’s first wife? Find out on “Toda Max” this Saturday (November 17) after “Maalaala Mo Kaya” on ABS-CBN.


“Gangster Squad” Character Banners Revealed

“Gangster Squad” Character Banners Revealed


 
Warner Bros. has just launched new character banners for the crime thriller “Gangster Squad” from director Ruben Fleischer. The banners individually feature the characters played by Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Josh Brolin.

 


Under the direction of Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of 1949 events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.

 


Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and - if he has his way - every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.

Emma Stone plays Grace Faraday, Cohen’s moll and the object of Wooters’ attention.

 


Opening across the Philippines on January 23, 2013, “Gangster Squad” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi Wedding Photos and Video



After 12 years of living-in together that bears two beautiful children Cassie and Maverick, 37-year-old Carmina Villaroel and 40-year-old Zoren Legaspi finally get married on Thursday night, November 15, shortly after Zoren's surprised wedding proposal infront of their families and friends from in and out of showbiz at Fernbrook Garden in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

The on-the-spot wedding proposal under a man-made cherry blossom tree and the actual wedding ceremony which Carmina thought was just part of a commercial shoot for an ice cream brand they are endorsing was planned by Zoren, his children and Carmina's colleagues in ABS-CBN.

Present during the wedding were primary sponsors Kris Aquino, Ben Chan, Grace Poe-Llamanzares and Eric Quizon.

Also in attendance to witness the wedding are Boy Abunda, sisters Gelli de Belen and Janice de Belen, Aiko Melendez, Candy Pangilinan, Amy Austria-Ventura, Tirso Cruz III, Joel Torre, Joey Marquez, Maricel Soriano, Lily Monteverde and Ms. Susan Roces.



"At last, Mrs. Legaspi na ako!" said the still shocked but ever happy bride during her interview with Boy Abunda during the reception. "Mas gusto ko underscore. Mrs. Carmina Villaroel_Legaspi." the groom said in jest. Which Carmina replied by "Parang email, ganun? Hahaha!"




Asked what part of the wedding did they like the most, Maverick said, "The dance flash mob by G-Force to the tune of Rihanna’s We Found Love]". While Cassie said, "Since I like acting, yung akting-aktingan part. Nakakatawa talaga sila [Zoren pretended to fight with one of the crew members of the fake shoot]."




The Carmina and Zoren wedding special titled "Zoren and Carmina Together, Always and Forever" will be telecast on Saturday, November 24, right after MMK on ABS-CBN.
