Top 10 Celebrity News 2013

Top 10 Celebrity News 2013

1. Willie Revillame to Ethel Booba, Ate Gay: ‘You don’t do that to me’

Perhaps of all Willie’s meme-worthy soundbites, this one’s the last and most popular yet. In the February 28 episode of his now-defunct noontime show on TV5, the “Wowowillie” main man scolded Ethel Booba and Ate Gay, and lectured them about professionalism after the two allegedly shouted at him for his unfair judgment in one of the show’s segments.

2. The ‘fall’ of Gutierrezes

If there’s one showbiz family hit by several defeats this year, it would be the Gutierrezes. First, Richard’s girlfriend Sarah Lahbati was sued for accusing GMA Films big boss Annette Gozon-Abrogar of meddling with questionable talent deals. Second, Richard allegedly impregnated his girlfriend. Third, their matriarch Annabelle Rama lost her Congressional bid. Fourth, Richard, Raymond and Ruffa had their network contracts expired—making them freelance as of the moment. It seems giving up isn’t part of their mantra though. Later this year, the family announced their upcoming reality show “It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez.” Sounds familiar? Well, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” could relate.

3. Barretto family feud goes on

As of this posting, the Barretto sisters are still publicly trading barbs against each other—on Instagram and elsewhere. But, yes, 2013 showbiz is pretty much defined by the unending saga starring Claudine, Gretchen and their other siblings (plus their parents Inday and Miguel, of course)—featuring their dirty linens, no less. And we’re not even talking about Claudine’s marital woes with Raymart as of yet.

4. Jessica Soho, netizens didn’t laugh on Vice Ganda’s ‘rape’ joke

This year’s unfunniest joke was care of Vice Ganda. After making GMA News big boss Jessica Soho subject of his “rape” joke in his May 17 concert, the Kapamilya comedian received a barrage of criticisms on social media—ignited by anchor Arnold Clavio and some GMA news reporters.

5. Charice comes out as lesbian

Charice has confirmed wide speculations that she’s a lesbian. The admission came two weeks following her 21st birthday and several unaddressed issues after. Among the issues then was her eloping with then-alleged girlfriend Alyssa Quijano and her filing blotter against her own mother, Racquel Pempengco.

6. Twin sex video scandals: Chito Miranda-Neri Naig and Wally Bayola-EB Babe Yosh

With just one month apart from each other, showbiz has yet again rocked by twin sex video scandals—care of couples Chito Miranda-Neri Naig and Wally Bayola-EB Babe Yosh whose private intimate videos went public. Looks like with or without the Anti-Voyeurism Law and the pending Cybercrime Law in effect, Internet perpetrators have yet to learn from Hayden Kho’s.

7. Network Transfers and loyalties

Stars come and go—but TV networks remain. And so network-switching is till the name of the game this year. Ogie Alcasid, Amy Perez and JC De Vera have all decided to explore their career options in other networks. Judy Ann Santos Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes, though thought to make a big move, have opted to remain loyal and renewed ties with their mother networks.

8. Pregnancy and Delivery

Without a doubt, babies are a bundle of joy. And our celebrities are making sure their good genes will be passed on to future showbiz royalties. Amy Perez, Iwa Moto and Nicole Hyala have given birth this year. Meanwhile, Jolina Magdangal, Rica Peralejo, Melai Cantiveros and Geneva Cruz have announced that they are soon-to-be-moms a couple of months from now.

9. Engagement/Marriage

Even while showbiz reels from high-profile breakups, 2013 remains a good year to fall in love. Take it from these couples who tied the knot this year: Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes, Freddie Aguilar and Jovi Gatdula, Melai Cantiveros and Jason Francisco, Paolo Valenciano and Samantha Godinez, Matt Evans and Katrina Fariñas, Anna Larrucea and Robbie Pangilinan and Sir Chief and Maya.

Not to be outdone, these lovebirds also announced their engagement: Jericho Rosales and Kim Jones, Shamcey Supsup and Lloyd Lee, Geneva Cruz and Lee Paulsen, Miriam Quiambao and Ardy Roberto Jr., Denise Laurel and Sol Mercado, and Tiya Pusit and his boyfriend.

10. Anchors under fire

That awkward moment when news anchors become news subjects themselves. Korina Sanchez, Ted Failon and Arnold Clavio surely know the feeling. - Source

Lima sa 2013: A TV5 Reports on 5 of the Most Controversial, Shocking, Inspirational Happenings of 2013

Lima sa 2013: A TV5 Reports on 5 of the Most Controversial, Shocking, Inspirational Happenings of 2013 

TV5 ends the year with five stories that shook 2013 and five personalities who inspired and brought good news for Filipinos. Hosted by News5 chief Luchi Cruz-Valdes, the Kapatid Network’s year-ender special “Lima sa 2013” will air on December 31, 10pm-11:30pm.“Lima sa 2013” will take the viewers to a countdown of five of the biggest stories of the year. 

At No. 5 is the Sabah Standoff, which resurrected the long-standing claim of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III for Sabah. Dozens of the sultan’s men died when Malaysia finally moved in with troops, planes, and artillery. 

No. 4 is the Bohol and Cebu earthquake, where more than 200 died in the 7.2 magnitude tremor that was equivalent to 32 Hiroshima bombs and traced to a previously undiscovered fault in Bohol. 

Next at No. 3 is the Zamboanga siege, where a faction of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front attempted to raise the MNLF flag and declare independence, triggering a month-long fight within Zamboanga city’s heavily-populated neighborhoods, evacuating more than 100,000 residents. 

The Napoles and PDAF story comes in at No. 2 with the multi-billion scandal that sparked massive protests over misuse of country’s state funds. Reportedly at the center of the scam are the country’s political bigwigs, senators, lawmakers, and Janet Lim Napoles, a businesswoman who started splurging in the lifestyle of the rich and infamous almost overnight. 

Placing at No. 1 is the story that made the biggest impact to the world – when all eyes were on the Philippines when super typhoon Yolanda (International name Haiyan) hit the country. The “new normal” is here. Yolanda awakened the world on the destructive forces set loose by climate change. Moved by images of suffering and devastation, the world came to help with donations, volunteers, and fundraising campaigns initiated by the biggest international groups and personalities. 

For the good news part, the “Lima sa 2013” also tells the story of five Filipinos who inspired: Chino Roque, a member of the Axe Apollo space team and soon the first Filipino in space; Juan Direction, five half-Filipino hotties but 100% Pinoys at heart; Megan Young, Mutya Datul, and Bea Rose Santiago who made 2013 the year Filipino beauty ruled the world and almost swept all titles; Gilas Pilipinas, the basketball team who showed “Puso” and won for the Philippines the silver in the Fiba Asia Cup and a crack at the Barcelona championship this year; and the Yolanda victims and volunteers, those who suffered quietly and served and answered to the call for help. 

After the countdown of the biggest stories comes the countdown to the New Year, hosted by Paolo Bediones, Cheri Mercado, and Jove Francisco at 11:30pm.

Look Up, Look Up!: The GMA News and Public Affairs Yearend Review

Look Up, Look Up!: The GMA News and Public Affairs Yearend Review

Filipinos had their share of tragedies and controversies this 2013. Who can forget the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that destroyed communities and national heritage sites in Cebu and Bohol, or the super typhoon Yolanda, which claimed the lives of thousands in Visayas? While both calamities have passed, there is no denying that they have left scars in the history of the nation.   

Nature wasn’t the only force that the Filipinos had to contend with. The nation was in an uproar over the pork barrel scam, which made Janet Lim-Napoles a household name and placed several other politicians in the hot seat. The issue hit the Filipinos right where it hurts, leading millions of them to come together and fight for their rights in Luneta.   

On top of all these crises, the Filipinos in Cotabato and Zamboanga remained trapped in a war between the government and the leftists. The Philippines’ refusal to yield rights over Sabah even led to bloodshed in Malaysia.   

With 2013 nearing its end, ”Imbestigador” Mike Enriquez and ”Aling Maliit” Ryzza Mae Dizon are teaming up to look back at the year that was, drive away the bad vibes, and welcome the coming year in high spirits with ”LOOK UP, LOOK UP! The GMA News and Public Affairs 2013 Yearend Review”.   

”LOOK UP, LOOK UP!” will delve into the possible ways Filipinos will take to rise above 2013’s series of unfortunate events. Mike and Ryzza Mae will be joined by experts to determine the lessons imparted by the year’s tragic events and political issues. They will tackle how to better prepare for unforeseen natural disasters, ensure that the masterminds behind the pork barrel scam will be apprehended, protect the people’s money, and maintain and restore peace and order across the country.   

Get ready for the new year with ”LOOK UP, LOOK UP! The GMA News and Public Affairs 2013 Yearend Review”, coming this December 29 on GMA Pinoy TV.

Kim Basinger is Torn Between Two Superstar Boxers in "Grudge Match"

Kim Basinger is Torn Between Two Superstar Boxers in "Grudge Match"

Oscar-winning actress Kim Basinger (“L.A. Confidential”) stars in Warner Bros. Pictures' new comedy “Grudge Match” as Sally Rose, whose history with retired heavyweight boxers Razor (Sylvester Stallone) and Kid (Robert De Niro) changed all of their lives. 

In “Grudge Match,” Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp are two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, a boxing promoter, seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all. 

Once the love of Razor’s life, Sally re-enters the scene when news of the rematch breaks.

Interestingly, Stallone knew Basinger from a gym where they both worked with the same trainer. Stallone says the two had been looking for a project to do together and suggested her to director Peter Segal and the producers, who agreed. 

She was perfect for the role,” says producer Bill Gerber. “It was one of those things where we cast her, but hadn’t really seen her together with Stallone. One day we were doing some camera tests and both Kim and Sly were there, so we decided to get them together and see…And when they walked in and everybody was standing there, it was wow! They looked like a fantastic couple.”

Segal admits when he met Basinger to discuss her role in “Grudge Match,” it was the fulfillment of a long-held crush. “She is still so absolutely stunning,” he says, “and she was so great because she wanted to come and play in the sandbox. She hadn’t done a comedy in a long time and she wanted to let her hair down.” 

Basinger seemed to enjoy the spontaneity and fun Segal encouraged. He relates, “She said, ‘It’s wonderful for me when people just tell me what they want. Tell me what you want and I’ll do it.’ So as soon as I knew that, we had a ball. Because we could just play, we could try things, throwing jokes at her, taking things away, giving her other things. Whatever it was, she was a great sport.

When asked how was that working with Stallone and De Niro, Basinger says, “It was quite a ride because they work very differently. And they’re both hilarious. So I had a really great experience with them. It was great. Stallone’s a jokester. Di Niro’s quiet and sneaky. [laughs] So just different layers.”

On a more serious note, Basinger shares what she took away from the experience working with her costars. “You learn from every experience, and you take a lot from that. No one knows everything and it’s always a new camera and a new day. The first day of shooting is always the first day of school. So you’re a little nervous. If I wasn’t nervous I would quit. That’s the excitement of it. But, yeah, to work with all these people, you always learn from everyone, and you take it.

Kim Basinger starred opposite Robert Redford in Barry Levinson’s “The Natural,” receiving a Golden Globe nomination for her supporting role, and has appeared in more than 40 feature films, earning an Academy Award® in 1998 for her role in the critically acclaimed film “L.A. Confidential.” Based on the James Ellroy classic crime novel of the same title, the film, directed by Curtis Hanson, earned nine Academy Award® nominations. Basinger also received a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award® (SAG), as well as a BAFTA Award nomination.

Basinger will next appear in “The Third Person,” written and directed by Paul Haggis and co-starring Liam Neeson and Maria Bello, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year. In 2014, she will star in “Unborn,” in which she plays the role of a successful career woman who cannot have children. Produced by Lars Von Trier and written and directed by Anders Morgenthaler, the film also stars Peter Stormare, Jordan Prentice and German actors Sebastian Schipper and Sophie Rois.

Opening across the Philippines in January 15, 2014, “Grudge Match” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

KC Concepcion Talks About Fight and Love Scenes with ER Ejercito in "Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story"

KC Concepcion Talks About Fight and Love Scenes with ER Ejercito in "Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story"

For the first time, KC Concepcion turned sexy action star in her latest movie "Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story" where she plays the role of Marla Dee, a club dancer-stripper in the 60s who got romantically involved with well-known notorious gangster Arturo Porcuna (played by Laguna Governor ER Ejercito).

During the bloggers conference held Saturday night at Glorietta 4 activity center, KC fondly shared her memorable experiences doing action with the help of world-renowned Thai stunt coordinator Kawee “Seng” Sirikanerat (Tomb Raider, Expendables) and her daring kissing and bed scenes with the Governor.

Q: When you learned about doing an action movie with Governor ER Ejercito, what comes first into your mind and how did you prepare for the role?
KC:  I trained for 3 months with mixed martial arts and meron akong Pilipino na nagturo na rin sa akin from Fitness Science and si Governor ER actually hand-picked Mr. Se from Thailand, siya yung gumawa ng mga choreographies and stunts coordination sa mga Hollywood films ni Angelina Jolie. He also did ‘Tomorrow Never Dies,’ ‘Tomb Raider.

I did 3 months of training with mixed martial arts together with my yoga, but it was a crashed course kasi it was really in preparation for the movie para hindi matagalan yung mga shoot, ‘yung mga 36 hours shooting days. It took us four days for one girl-to-girl action scene so it’s a long long long fight scene with another girl.

Q: Governor ER was very vocal about your huge chance of getting the MMFF Best Actress award this year, what's your take on that?
KC: I wanna thanked him for his faith in me. Kase he was so confident about me from the very beginning...from the time he chose me to play Marla Dee and I want to thank him for considering me for this role. And of course, I wanna thank Direk Chito (Roño) for really training me and giving me directions sa role ko.

For whatever its worth...with or without an award for me this is probably one of the most fulfilling project I've ever done. And for me talaga, it would be a cherry on top because I just won a Best Supporting Actress so it would be a level up but if the universe doesn't agree that I get then it's also okay.

Q: In choosing between a blockbuster success or awards?
KC: Ang awards nakadikit yan sa pangalan mo forever. It's really more of a respect rather than the money but of course you would hope for a commercial success.

Q: Reports said that you had the most daring performance yet in this movie, can you elaborate why? 
KC: Marami kasendg pinagawa sakin sa movie na 'to. When I first arrived (in the Philippines) I was a model and a VJ and 'di ko talaga naisip na I would really venture into acting or being a serious actress. As a part of personal growth coming from some controversial issues in my past, I guess, I grew as a person. And I am now starting to take acting more seriously.

Daring, for me kase, not in the context of being undressed just for the sake of showing skin, for the sake of being sexy. I just want to try something just so happen na yun' yung emotions ko that time. But this is not something like ito na yung directions ko.

Yes, daring kase stripper ako dito. Dancer. First time ko mag-action in any of my movies or teleseryes. So instead of daring, its more of outgoing, more exploratory, more willing, more risk taking.

Q: What about your mom's (Sharon Cuneta) reaction in your kissing scenes with Gov.?
KC: She did a movie with FPJ in the past, though she never had any kissing scene with him but I guess that kinda sets this apart from what she's done before that I went for it. We never did anything naman any scene na 'di kailangan sa movie or sa eksena. And this is something na my character would have to do so I just did it.

Q: How is it working with Direk Chito Roño?
KC: At first natakot ako tapos habang tumatagal mas nasanay na ko sa style nya, sa perspective nya, sa gusto nyang makita. Kung pa'no nya gustong i-drawing yung eksena.

Q: Why today's generation should watch this movie? What morale value should we learn from this movie knowing that it is about a notorious gangster in the 60s?
KC: I think normal sa tao na makaramdam ng feelings ng vengeance, revenge pero yun nga sabi nga sa movie 'walang taong gumagawa ng masama ang hindi napaparusahan para sa ginawa nya.

Masarap kase syang panoorin. Makulay sya. Maraming nangyayari. Pati yung mga suot namin makulay. At yung istilo ng pagkwento ng story 'di pangkaraniwan.

Isa siyang pelikulang Pilipino pa rin na iba yung pag-present sa kanya compared sa ibang action movies na basta barilan lang, sapakan, bugbugan. At may femme fatale element ito na 'di karaniwang nakikita sa mga gangster movies.

Aside from KC and Governor Ejercito, “Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story” also stars  John Estrada, Eddie Garcia, Leo Martinez, Gloria Sevilla, Tonton Gutierrez, Baron Geisler and Joem Bascon.

Showing nationwide on December 25, 2013 as part of the 39th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF 2013).

Sarah Geronimo "Tayo" Music Video and Lyrics

Sarah Geronimo "Tayo" Music Video and Lyrics

Popstar Sarah Geronimo has just released the music video for her new single “Tayo” from her "Expressions" album produced and released by Viva Records.

Nasubukan mo na bang ipagpalit
Nakalimutan o kaya nasantabi
Nasabihan ng mismo ka
Ngunit ‘di para sa kanya
Nasubukan mo na bang mapagsabay
Nabitawan ang kanyang mga kamay
Tanda mo nang iniwanan ka niya
Kay sakit naman ‘di ba

Ulit-ulit na dahilan
Nariyan pa ri’t nasasaktan
Dinggin ang awiting nagsasabing bumangon
Awit na para sa

Mga pusong nadapa
Matutong tumingala
Sa ‘tin na umibig at laging dehado
‘Wag magpapatalo
Sa ‘tin na umibig at laging dehado
‘Wag magpapatalo

Palusot, dahilan, yoon pala’y
Pinagpalit ka lang pala sa may sablay
Masabihan ng ‘di pa handa
Para sa pag-ibig mo

Nasabihan ka na ba ng “ayoko na”
O kaya “mas masaya ako sa kanya”
Baka naman nagsasawa na siya
Kay sakit naman ‘di ba
Repeat Pre-Chorus and Chorus

Tayo, tayo, tayo
‘Wag magpapatalo tayo
Dinggin ang awiting nagsasabing bumangon
Awit na para sa
