The controversy points to a possible Dodie Puno-Gretchen Barreto-Tonyboy Cojuangco love triangle which could be the cause of the rumored split of the actress from the live-in partner business mogul.

Another story from the friends of friends of the couple says that the real cause are the beautiful women said to be admired by Tonyboy.

Here is the news, . Judge for yourselves, what is real and what is not.

ANILA, Philippines—There’s trouble in paradise and it’s being milked for all its worth.

For the past two months, there have been “persistent and consistent” rumors (the exact words of a close friend of one of the protagonists) about the reported breakup of controversial beauty Gretchen Barretto and her longtime partner, business mogul Tonyboy Cojuangco.

Last weekend, the rumor mill went on hyper-drive. Gossip has since gone beyond show biz, to high-society circles: The actress had been thrown out of the conjugal home.

A source close to Tonyboy insisted that he was still “very much in love with her, but decided to set her free.” Another colleague asked, pointedly: “Is freedom the new euphemism for being dumped?”

A lot of ink has been spilled, mostly on blind items. But of late, the three protagonists have been named on radio and TV, and in print.

Previously described as “another rich and powerful businessman,” Gretchen’s purported new boyfriend has been identified in several tabloids as Dodie Puno. He was earlier linked to a beauty queen and a sexy actress. (Sexy actress denies this.)

A Cojuangco associate intimated that there could be another reason for the separation: a beautiful “reason,” on legs. A new lady love?

Last Christmas, he was spotted at Simbang Gabi in the ABC 5 compound, which he owns. Did he complete the novena and what could he have wished for?

An employee told Rushes that Tonyboy had admired pretty young stars Kristine Hermosa and Marian Rivera in the past. A friend of his whispered that, indeed, the businessman had found a new paramour— a “singer-actress who had a boob job.” But she’s the exact opposite of porcelain-beauty Barretto, and already has a model-boyfriend! The friend insisted that Boob Babe found time to “seduce” the businessman.

Still another associate was skeptical: Tonyboy had two major surgeries last year. How could he fool around?

An ABS-CBN insider was sure that Cojuangco was actively pursuing a Kapamilya actress separated from her hunk of a husband.

What we know

On the ABS-CBN chismis show “The Buzz,” host Boy Abunda, Barretto’s manager, sounded seriously concerned, even as he stressed he was not fully informed of the details. Co-host Cristy Fermin said “a general” had urged her to go easy on her comments about the controversy.

On Wednesday, a reporter on dzMM (ABS-CBN’s radio arm) asked Alma Concepcion, identified as a former girlfriend of Puno’s, for a comment. Alma flatly said she wasn’t aware of the latest goings-on in Dodie’s life. (That’s the long version of, “No comment.”)

What we’ve gathered

Text messages from various sources are conflicting, to say the least.

Barretto’s best friend: “Not true.” A Cojuangco aide: “They’re fine.” A Cojuangco pal: “Definitely, all’s not well. She has left the house.” A Puno friend: “Gretchen and Dodie have been going out, but always with barkada.”

Another Barretto friend: “She laughed off the gossip that she [was thrown out and] didn’t get to bring any of her jewelry. She knows exactly where her bling-blings are.”

What is likely

An associate of Cojuangco’s said the couple was ironing out kinks in the relationship, and that third parties—were just ammunition.

A show biz insider lent a sharp observation: “Gretchen could be asking for something big, that Tonyboy can’t give her right now: a marriage contract.” Another source agreed, saying that every time the two fought, she would invariably threaten to go back to show biz.

In fact, Rushes learned that Gretchen had met with ABS-CBN executive Malou Santos, for a possible starring role in a soap opera.

A Cojuangco associate asked, exasperated: “So, is this all just for that teleserye?”

Well, Gretchen herself said in an interview last December: “Without intrigues, I don’t have a career.”

Scoffed a Cojuangco colleague: “She is much too savvy to be caught on the losing end after a breakup—true or not.”

Dolly Carvajal is hinting that the latest Gretchen Barreto's scandal is just an intrigue to promote Gretchen's new project in ABS CBN.

Me, I don't buy it. When names of prominent families are involved, i believe that when there's smoke, there's fire. But if this turned to be a publicity why did tise prominent people allowed their names t obe dragged by the media?

MANILA, Philippines—Before you start getting worked up about the brewing scandal on Gretchen Barretto’s purported breakup with partner Tonyboy Cojuangco, listen: This could just be because a new TV series is supposedly being cooked. Wait and watch.

An unimpeachable source tells Rushes that Gretchen met with a top female executive of ABS-CBN last week.

The source goes as far as saying, “Whenever Gretchen has a new project (whether on the big or small screens), she uses it as leverage [against] her partner.”

An associate of the businessman’s insists that everything was “okay.

Is it true that Gretchen Barreto and Tonyboy COjunagco are heading to splitsville if they have not separated yet.

Here's the news from PEP.

Matagal-tagal na ring usap-usapan sa mga blind items ang pakikipaghihiwalay diumano ng isang celebrity sa kanyang longtime partner. At nito ngang huli ay pinangalanan na ang sinasabing couple—sina Gretchen Barretto at Tonyboy Cojuangco.

Ayon sa report, "third party" ang dahilan ng paghihiwalay ng landas ng dalawa. Si Gretchen ay may relasyon diumano sa abogadong si Dodie Puno. Nang matuklasan daw ito ni Tonyboy, pinalayas daw niya si Gretchen sa kanilang tahanan sa Dasmarinas Village, Makati. Hindi raw naisama ng aktres ang kanilang anak na si Dominique at maging ang kanyang mga gamit ay hindi niya nadala.

Si Dodie ay ang nakababatang kapatid nina Secretary Ronnie Puno ng Department of Interior and Local Government at Atty. Dong Puno na konektado sa ABS-CBN News & Current Affairs. Si Dodie rin ang ama ng anak ng dating beauty queen at aktres na si Alma Concepcion.

Bagama't wala pang naririnig na pahayag sa panig nina Gretchen at Tonyboy, marami ang nagsasabing totoo nga ang balitang hiwalay na sila. Lalo pang lumakas ang paniniwala na may problema sa relasyon nina Gretchen at Tonyboy dahil mismong ang mga malalapit na kaibigan ni Gretchen ay nagpapahiwatig ng dapat gawin ng kontrobersiyal na aktres.

Sa The Buzz kahapon, January 26, naging paksa ito ng mga host ng programa na sina Boy Abunda, Cristy Fermin, at Ruffa Gutierrez. Si Boy ay talent manager ni Gretchen at matalik na kaibigan din, gaya ni Ruffa.

Ang palitan ng mga salita nina Boy, Cristy, at Ruffa ay kaugnay nga ng mga kumakalat na balita tungkol sa paghihiwalay diumano nina Gretchen at Tonyboy. Narito ang kanilang usapan:

Boy: Gretch, if you're watching... Gretchen, kung ano ang laman ng iyong puso, kung ano ang nangyayari sa iyong buhay, malungkot o masaya, ako bilang kaibigan, I will always support you. I think that's the same feeling of Cristy and Ruffa.

Cristy: Sa akin, isa lang, batas ng buhay: Kung hindi ka na maligaya, lumabas ka.

Ruffa: Ako, ipagdadasal kita na piliin mo kung ano ang ikakasaya ng iyong puso.

Boy: Ako, mahal kita. I love you, Gretch.

Ruffa: Life is short, be happy.

Boy: It's also being judgmental, mga kaibigan. Kasi sometimes, inaakala natin alam natin ang nangyayari sa loob ng kuwarto, alam natin ang nangyayari sa loob ng puso ng isang tao. Gretchen is a beautiful person. Isang araw, maibabahagi namin sa inyo ang kuwento.

Cristy: Si Gretchen ang klase ng tao na anumang nagaganap sa kanyang buhay, nilalantad niya sa publiko. Kahit kailan po hindi siya nagsinungaling sa atin kaya minamahal siya ng mga tao.

Sa pag-uusap ng mga host ng The Buzz, malinaw na alam nila ang kasalukuyang pinagdadaanan ni Gretchen at lahat sila ay nakasuporta sa aktres. Hindi man nila direktang sabihin, kumpirmado ngang may problema sa pagsasama nina Gretchen at Tonyboy.

Samantala, may mga natatanggap ding impormasyon ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) tungkol sa bagong kontrobersiya na ito sa buhay ni Gretchen. Hindi lang isa ang nagsabi sa PEP na totoo diumano na madalas makita si Gretchen kasama ni Atty. Dodie Puno. Isang source ang nagsabi sa PEP na namataan daw ang dalawa sa Alchemy, ang club na pag-aari ng huli, na magka-holding hands dalawang buwan na ang nakalilipas.

Pero ayon pa sa mga nakausap ng PEP, hindi lamang si Gretchen ang may karelasyon kundi maging si Tonyboy. Base sa mga natanggap naming impormasyon, ang babaeng nauugnay kay Tonyboy ay empleyado raw ng pag-aaring TV station ng billionaire businessman, ang ABC-5.

Sa kabilang banda, pinabulaanan ng ilan pang malalapit na tao kay Gretchen ang mga lumalabas na balita. Ang mga kapatid ng aktres na sina Marjorie at Claudine ay nagpahayag na maayos pa rin ang pagsasama nina Gretchen at Tonyboy. Isa pang malapit kay Gretchen ang nagsabi sa PEP na nakausap niya noong nakaraang linggo ang aktres at pinagtatawanan lamang nito ang isyu.

May opinyon naman ang iba na baka isa lamang itong gimik para sa nalalapit na album ni Gretchen sa Star Records. Baka ginagamit lang daw ang personal na buhay ni Gretchen upang paingayin ang bagong showbiz-related project na ito ng aktres.

Sa katunayan, namataan ng ilang entertainment press si Gretchen sa ABS-CBN nitong weekend papunta sa kanyang meeting with the network's executive. Ayon sa kanila, masaya pa ang aktres na bumati sa kanila at walang bahid na nagpapakita ng kalungkutan dahil sa isang mabigat na problema.

Sa pagkakakilala ng publiko kay Gretchen, hindi ito kailanman nagsinungaling sa tuwing may ikinakabit na intriga sa kanya. Dahil nga sa pagiging totoo niya ay napapaaway siya kadalasan.

Hiwalay na nga kaya sina Gretchen at Tonyboy? Tanging si Gretchen ang makapagsasabi ng kasagutan.

Snooky was a child actress and was successful in her transition from being a child actress to an adult performer. She earned a lot of money when she was still a minor. The rumor was, her mother actress Mila Ocampo squandered all her earnings to gambling.

Snooky does not deny that they are financially strapped. So when the news came out that they mother-daughter duo were seen in a hotel casino, she denied that they were there to gamble.

This lady was given a lot of chance to right her past mistakes. If she will continue denying her problem, it's her loss.

Here is the news:

Totoo pala ang balita na nagiging favorite tambayan na ni Snooky Serna ang Music 21 Plaza sa Timog Ave., Quezon City at doon nga siya natiyempuhan ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kahapon, January 28.

May mga bagong isyu na naman kay Snooky, gaya ng nakita raw sila ng mommy niyang si Mila Ocampo na nagka-casino.

"That's not true," tanggi agad ng aktres. "May nakakita sa amin sa Hotel Sofitel at nakunan nga kami ng pictures ni Mommy, pero wala kami sa loob ng casino. It was the cafe inside Hotel Sofitel, at napadaan kami doon dahil mayroon kaming kausap na alahera, at ang napagkasunduan, doon nga magkikita.

"So my Mom and I just went there to have a drink. Nagulat na lang kami nang lumabas ang isyung nagka-casino pa raw kaming mag-ina. Akala nga raw ng mga tao ay naghihirap na kami, nagpe-pedicab, and all that... Pero swear to God, kapatid, hindi kami nagpunta sa Sofitel para mag-casino o mag-gambling. Ni hindi kami pumasok sa casino," tuloy-tuloy na paliwanag ni Snooky.

Nakilala raw kasi ang ina ni Snooky noon pa bilang gambler. Ito raw ang isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit nagkandahirap-hirap sila at nagipit nang husto.

"Hindi naman ikinaila ng mommy ko 'yan, pero matagal na siyang hindi nagka-casino. Wala na nga kaming kapera-pera, magsusugal pa siya? Aaminin ko na ang isa sa diversion ng mommy ko ngayon ang magpunta sa Market! Market! at mag-bingo. Magkano lang ba ang itinataya doon? After a few rounds, umuuwi na si Mommy.




Willie Revillame's ex-wife is Princess Punzalan. This is not her princess. Naah, it's not a new girl friend. It's a yatch. How lucky can this man gets?

This is the news from Dolly Carvajal.

MANILA, Philippines - Willie Revillame’s Ferrari controversy has waned. Now I hear he has a top-of-the-line yacht called “Princess,” docked somewhere in Batangas.

What a coincidence that it carries the name of his ex-wife, Princess Punzalan. Does this boat somehow remind Mr. Wilyonaryo of his struggling days as a drummer when he and Cess were starting out?




Camille Prats gave birth to a baby a week ahead than the schedule in February.
They have named him Nathaniel Ceasar Linsangan.

Here is the news from GMA7

Young actress Camille Prats has given birth to a healthy baby boy at Los Angeles, California. Camille and her husband, Anthony Linsangan, have chosen Nathaniel Ceasar or Nathan as the name of their son.

It can be recalled that Camille admitted that she was pregnant courtesy of her non-showbiz boyfriend a few hours before she flew to Los Angeles last September 5 in an exclusive interview with Showbiz Central's John "Sweet" Lapus aired on September 9. The former child actress was already four months pregnant at that time.

PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal), however, broke the news about Camille's pregnancy in an exclusive interview with the young actress' mom, Mrs. Alma Prats, on September 6.

Camille and Anthony tied the knot last January 5 in Los Angeles through a simple ceremony attended by their respective families. The couple though is planning to have a church wedding here in the Philippines





Martin is going to have his concert in February 1. I wonder if his talk although he would not admit it has something to do with the success of that concert. Pops' concert was a success. What about Martin's? Who is the loser in their word war?

This is the news from ABS-CBN.

Concert King Martin Nievera said that he is willing to reunite with his former wife Concert Queen Pops Fernandez, but only on stage.

"Sure we can even do shows again together. I mean I can see that," Nievera told entertainment media during the press conference Wednesday of ABS-CBN’s new television series "Lobo."

His statement stemmed from reports that he had a serious talk with Fernandez to end their word war.

He is also certain that he can work again with Fernandez if the people would ask and if people would still love to watch them do things together.

"I think so if the people really wanna watch that after this hullabaloo. I thought hindi na interesado ang mga tao dahil pagod na pagod na sila sa mga intriga namin (I thought people will no longer be interested because they are tired of all the intrigues around us)," he said.

"So kung may audience pa. Kung gusto niyong manood ng Martin and Pops bakit hindi (So if there will still be an audience, if they still want to watch Martin and Pops, why not)?"

Nievera said that his conversation with Fernandez has nothing to do with them but with the welfare of their kids.

"We talked… and we talked mostly about the future of the children and mostly business mostly civil staff," he said.

Martin added "there’s nothing really emotional, wala iyong galit galit, o sigawan (No shouting). I tried to be as quiet as possible para siya ang magsalita (I tried to be as quiet as possible and let her talk). And when she was done we were done."

Nievera also cited that Fernandez said everything she that needed to say and the actor hopes that after the talk everything will be okay.

"She said everything she needed to say and I think everything hopefully will be on the right track.

Nievera also bared that they never talked about what happened in the past, their marital troubles, separation and the most recent controversy when Fernandez divulged almost everything that happened with their relationship.

"No it’s better that we don’t talk about those things, it is better just to put that behind us already," he said.

The singer also hopes that this year will be a happy and peaceful year for them and a really happy birthday for his son Ram and for him.

"I think so hopefully and also for me February 5th will be a nice happy birthday there’s no more wars.

Nievera is now busy preparing for his 25th anniversary concert on February 1st at the Araneta Coliseum.

raphe fernandez
Raphe Ferandez is a the eldest son of Rudy Fernandez and Lorna Tolentino. He finished film-making at the Ateneo de Manila but now he would like to be in front of the camera rather than behind it. According to Lorna Tolentino, she gave her blessings to his son because he has already finished a degree. Now he can do whatever he likes.

News from PEP.

Handa nang sumabak ang panganay na anak nina Rudy Fernandez at Lorna Tolentino na si Raphe Fernandez sa pag-aartista. Napag-alaman ito ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) mula mismo kay LT, at okay lang siya rito dahil nakatapos na ang anak sa kursong filmmaking sa Ateneo de Manila University.

"Matagal na siyang naghahanda," sabi ni Lorna. "In fact, noon pa siya kumuha ng extensive acting workshop kay Gina [Alajar]. Ninang niya 'yon kaya naman I'm very sure tinuruan siya nang husto para humusay sa pag-arte. Importante kasi sa akin 'yon. Kung sasabak siya sa pag-aartista, dapat ay handa siya. Hindi porke anak siya nina Rudy Fernandez at Lorna Tolentino, uubra na 'yon.

"Besides, pumayag lang talaga kami dahil natapos niya ang kanyang pag-aaral. Yun lang deal namin ng mga anak ko. Magtapos sila, and they can do whatever is best for themselves. I have a feeling na magiging stage mother ako. Sa true lang, eeksena talaga ako kapag artista na si Raphe! Keber!" biro at natatawang sabi ng aktres.

Teaser na nga yung nakikita sa ilang magazines ang mukha ni Raphe. Ang dating si Rap-Rap ay binatang-binata na, 22 years old. Prize catch ang binata for any girl, pero kung showbiz ang pag-uusapan, built-in ang pagiging star material nito.

"Nagulat nga ako noon, kasi hindi naman talaga interesado sa pag-aartista si Raphe. Kumuha siya ng kursong may kaugnayan sa filmmaking, pero ang feeling ko, baka gustong maging direktor o scriptwriter. Pero ang sabi niya, mas interesado siya sa pagdidirek. He will try acting, para humusay siya sa pagdidirek. Sabi ko, okay 'yon. Doon lalabas ang creativity ng isang individual artist. Iba ang akting, at 'pag humusay ka sa parteng ito, kapag matiyaga ka, you can be a very good director," saad ni LT.

Nakapagdirek na rin sa TV si Lorna, pero hindi raw siya kasing-tiyaga ng anak niya.

"The fact that he finished college, may degree siya, well, nagtiyaga talaga siya. He's ready to take the challenges, including acting. Mas okay na mag-umpisa siya sa pag-arte para lalo pa siyang mahasa, at matutunan niya ang iba pang aspeto ng pagdidirek," lahad ni LT.

Ang pangalawang anak naman nina Lorna at Rudy na si Renz ay nag-aaral pa rin sa University of the Philippines. Mga isang taon na lang ay magtatapos na rin ito.

"At saka na niya isipin kung ano ba ang gusto niya," sabi ni Lorna. "'Yun lang ang gusto ko, makatapos sila. Frustration ko kasi ang pag-aaral. Hindi ba't ilang ulit akong labas-masok sa eskuwelahan, pero hindi ako nakatapos dahil kailangan kong magtrabaho?

"So I made sure, ang mga anak ko, hindi muna malu-lure ng showbiz. Mag-aaral na muna sila. Raphe is already sure of himself, at nandito lang kami for guidance. But I'm pretty confident may mararating siya sa pag-aartista, kung ise-set niya ang mind at heart niya rito."

Mukhang hindi naman pinilit ni LT si Raphe. May impluwensiya, at hindi maiaalis 'yon. Parehong batikang mga artista ang kanyang parents.

"Quiet kasi 'yang si Rap, 'yan ang nakamana ng ugali ko. Napagkakamalang suplado, pero 'pag palagay na ang loob, lagi nang may ready smile. I was like that when I was younger, di ba?

"Si Renz nga ang feeling kong mag-aartista, kasi machika 'yan. But he may turn out to be a good businessman someday. Sumososyo 'yan sa businesses ng kanyang maga kaibigan. Nagugulat na lang ako dahil nakakaipon siya, wala pa siyang trabaho at hindi pa nakakatapos," nangingiting pahayag ng proud mom.

Pinasasabak na raw ng mag-asawa ang mga anak nila sa pag-aartista dahil sa hindi na nga pupuwedeng magtrabaho pa si Daboy. Lumalaban pa rin ito sa sakit na cancer. Gayunpaman, hindi kailangan ng mag-asawa ang financial support ng mga anak.

"Hindi yung pagsuporta sa pamilya ang point dito," paglilinaw ng aktres. "Hilig niya 'yan, e. Naiintindihan namin.

"Hindi sa pagyayabang. May naipon kaming mag-asawa na sapat para itaguyod ang magandang kinabukasan nila, kahit hindi sila mag-artista. Pero paano kung sila na ang may gusto? Alangang sabihin naming hindi, e, sa ganitong trabaho namin sila binuhay at binigyan ng magandang future. Hindi nila maiintindiahan kung idi-discourage namin sila samantalang tapos na sila ng pag-aaral, and they have to be responsible adults sa gagawin nilang decisions, di ba?" tuluy-tuloy na sabi ni LT.

Kung si LT ang tatanungin, ang kagustuhan niyang magbalik sa kolehiyo para makatapos ng pag-aaral ay isinara na niya.

"Happy na ako, na ang kabiguan ko, tagumpay naman ng mga anak ko. Sila ang importanteng makatapos. Kung makapag-aral ako at gumradweyt, parang mahirap nang ma-appreciate ko pa 'yon. Samantalang hindi rin ako nawawalan ng trabaho. Showbiz has been very good, sa amin ni Daboy. Kung maibabalik namin ang kabutihang ito through our children, bakit namin ipagdaramot?" paliwanag ni Lorna.

Samantala, mabuti naman ang lagay ni Daboy ngayon. Nakita nga namin sa Redemptorist Church si Daboy, and he looks well. Maganda ang pangangatawan ng action star.

"Pero lumalaban pa rin siya," sabi ni Lorna. "Hindi naman biro ang sakit na dumapo sa kanya. Ipinagpapasalamat na lang namin sa Panginoon, hindi talaga Niya kami pinababayaan. Naging mas close pa ang family namin dahil diyan. Kahit ganoon, naitataguyod pa rin namin ang aming mga anak."

Despite their TV series, the couple Cesar Montano and Sunshine Cruz are not yet seeing eye to eye. Sunshine denied that the husband was making the movie for the reconciliation and she also was not yet prepared to sit down to solve their marital problem.

Here is the news from GMA7

Sunshine wants to try living without Cesar Montano

Sa himig ng pananalita ni Sunshine Cruz sa panayam sa kanya ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal), mukhang masaya na siya and less stressed out. Nitong mga nakaraang araw, may pagkakataong ka-text namin si Sunshine kahit disoras ng gabi.

"Ganoon pala 'yon when you make such a decision kapag napuno ka na, pero I still don't want to talk bad about Buboy. He is still my husband, and the father of my kids. Ayokong sirain si Buboy sa paningin ng mga anak ko," pakiusap ni Sunshine tungkol sa problema nila ng kanyang mister na si Cesar Montano.

Sinabi niyang hindi totoong sinusuyo siya ni Cesar para magkabalikan sila.

"I kept my silence, and so be it," confides Sunshine. "Pero nakakatawa yung mga lumalabas, kasi hindi naman ganoon. In fact, nagagalit pa siya sa mga lumalabas dahil ang feeling niya, character assasination 'yon sa kanya.

"E, hindi naman ako nagsasalita. Basta, kung anuman ang mangyayari sa amin ni Buboy, ipinapasa-Diyos ko na lang. Pero sa ngayon, wala kaming communication. Nagpalit na siya ng SIM, at hindi niya ako kinokontak. Idinadaan na lang niya sa sekretarya ang mga habilin, lalo na yung tungkol sa mga bata," pahayag ng aktres.

Hindi rin daw nagustuhan ni Cesar ang lumabas na balita na sinabihan daw niya si Sunshine na "porno star" sa harap ng mga anak nito. Ayon pa sa balita, may boyfriend na raw si Sunshine kaya nagbago na ito sa mister. Nagbigay ng kanyang pahayag si Sunshine tungkol dito.




A son of an action star Bong Revilla and a grandson of another action star Ramon Revilla Sr., Jolo Revilla admitted that he's courting Lovi Poe, the daughter of the late Movie King of Action Fernando Poe, Jr.

Hindi kaya another teenage romance lang yan?

Here is the news from PEP.

Jolo Revilla wants to slay the "playboy" image that continuously taints the Revilla men.

Sitting beside his inspiration, Lovi Poe, the son of Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla firmly defended himself and revealed his intentions for the young actress.

"Seryoso ako sa kanya," said Jolo to Startalk in a taped interview aired earlier today, January 19. "Gusto ko na mapatunayan sa mga tao na hindi ako ganoon. And I'm a one-woman man. Hindi na 'ko ‘yong dating Jolo."

Lovi, on the other hand, admitted that she's well aware of her suitor's playboy image. However, she argued that any man, regardless of his background, is capable of being unfaithful.

"Lahat naman ng lalaki... hindi lang naman siya, kahit sinong lalaki nakakatakot," confessed Lovi.

Taking a step further in defending her ardent suitor, Lovi continued, "And I don't want to judge [the] Revillas when people say na babaero."

NOT YET AN ITEM. The closeness, not to mention the obvious kilig, being displayed by the pair led a lot of people to conclude that they're already an item—a theory quickly straightened out by Jolo.

"I'm still courting her pa naman, e," confided Jolo, "sana maging maayos."

It is common knowledge that Jolo had a past with Grace Adriano, who is the daughter of former sexy actress Rosanna Roces. The romance produced a love child (Gab) but owing to Jolo and Grace's young age and emotional instability, the two never got married.

The former sweethearts though remain civil towards each other for the sake of their son. Jolo also happily announced during the interview that Grace has found a new love; the same way he has found his in the person of Lovi.

"Okay lang kasi matagal na naman kaming wala, 'tsaka okay na din ‘yon para masaya na siya," commented Grace on Jolo's closeness with Lovi, in a separate interview.

Proving that all's well between them, Jolo revealed that he had met Grace's boyfriend on several occasions and he feels that the guy is perfect for the mother of his son.

"Yeah," affirmed Jolo eagerly. "Na-meet ko na, I heard that he's a good man."

Grace, unfortunately, cannot say the same about Lovi. Not that she has anything against the daughter of Action King Fernando Poe Jr., but rather, fate has yet to arrange a chance meeting between the two women.

But as of the moment, the young mother could only give her impression of Lovi based on what she sees on the screen.

"Hindi ko pa siya nami-meet e, pero okay naman. ‘Pag nakikita ko sa TV lang, maganda naman... basta masaya si Jolo, doon din ako," said Grace in closing


CAMILLE PRATS married her non-show biz fiancee

Camille Prats wed her non-showbiz fiancee Anthony Linsangan, the father of her soon-ro be born child. The simple wedding was held in Los Angeles, California on January 5, 2008.

Here is the news from GMA7.

Nagkaroon ng pagkakataon ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) na makausap ang soon-to-be mom na si Camille Prats via Yahoo! Messenger (YM) kahapon, January 16.

Ayon kay Camille, ang nakalagay raw sa due date niya ay January 27, pero sinabihan na rin daw siya ng kanyang OB-Gyne na anytime ay pupuwede na siyang manganak. Hindi raw ibig sabihin na kung ano ang due date na nag-register sa ultrasound ay doon nga eksaktong naipapanganak ng ina ang kanyang sanggol.

Sa pakikipag-chat ng PEP kay Camille, na nasa Los Angeles, California ngayon habang hinihintay ang pagsilang ng kanyang first baby, nakumpirma namin mula sa young actress ang balitang nagpakasal na sila ng ama ng kanyang magiging anak na si Anthony Linsangan.

Ayon kay Camille, last January 5 sila ikinasal ni Anthony sa Los Angeles, California na rin. Dagdag pa ng dating child actress, simple lang ang naganap na kasalan at pamilya lang nila ang present.

Obviously, isang reason na rin siguro nina Camille at Anthony na magpakasal ay para gawing legal ang pangalan ng anak nila once na maisilang na ito.

Ayon pa kay Camille, there will still be a church dito sa Pilipinas, although "no exact plans yet for the church wedding. As soon as the baby's out, aayusin namin."

Sa ngayon, ang ina na lang ni Camille na si Mrs. Alma Prats ang naiwan at kasama nila ng husband niyang si Anthony sa paghihintay ng kanyang panganganak. Her dad, Dondi Prats, ay umuwi na rin daw sa Pilipinas last week after their wedding.

Kuwento ni Camille, definitely raw ay uuwi sila ng Pilipinas once na naipanganak na niya ang panganay nilang anak, na papangalanan nilang Nathaniel Ceasar Linsangan na ngayon pa lang ay tinatawag na nila sa nickname nito na Nathan.

Pero tulad ng magiging church wedding nila, wala pa rin daw definite date kung kailan sila makakauwi sa Pilipinas. Sabi pa ni Camille, bagama't may kaba siya sa araw ng kanyang panganganak—kahit sinabi raw sa kanya ng kanyang doctor na malaki ang possibility na mai-deliver naman niya nang normal ang bata—gustong-gusto na raw niyang makita at mayakap ang kanyang si Nathan

LUCKY MANZANO AND ANGEL LOCSIN are rumored to be sweethearts. The news said that the son of Vilma Santos brought the young star to Batangas and introduced her to the politician/actress mother and to his stepfather, the ex-Senator Ralph Recto.

According to rumor, Vilma Santos made a post Christmas shopping for Angel Locsin.

Here is the excerpt of the news from PEP.

May nakapagsabi rin sa PEP na almost four months nang magkasintahan sina Luis at Angel, na sabi'y nagsimula pagkatapos lumipat si Angel sa ABS-CBN. But it seems nagawa nilang maitago ang kanilang relasyon at hanggang sa ngayon, walang makapagsabing nagdi-date ang dalawa kung saan-saan, maliban sa nalaman naming isinama ni Luis si Angel sa Batangas.

Kaugnay ng nababalitang relasyon nina Luis at Angel, may nagkuwento sa PEP (kaibigan ng isang saleslady sa Rustan's Makati) na doon daw nag-post- Christmas shopping si Vilma. Nagkamali nga lang daw ang actress-politician na wala nang taong makakapansin sa kanya doon dahil tapos na ang Christmas rush. Nang malaman daw ng mga nagsa-shopping doon na nandoon siya, biglang dumami ang tao sa store. In fact, maging ang StarTalk co-host na si Butch Francisco—na nag-post-Christmas shopping din doon ng araw na ‘yon—ay nalaman na nandoon si Gov. Vi nang may nagsabi sa kanya.



Ai-ai delas Alas Threatened to Sue to Convenience Store

What is the truth and what is not? Mothers will always protect their children from harm and embarrassment.

So Ai-ai delas Alas whose son was alleged to be mishandled by the management of a convenience store is going to sue the cashier who accused his son of shoplifting.

Here is the news:

The Comedy Concert Queen was not laughing when she appeared on The Buzz yesterday, January 6, to answer questions with regards to the alleged shoplifting of her eldest son, Sancho in a convenience store in P. Noval Street. As a matter of fact, a somber Ai Ai faced the camera and later broke into sobs as the actress expressed her sentiments to her son’s rescue.
Her eldest, Sancho was accused of taking two rolls of candies and allegedly put it into his pocket and failed to pay for them.
The store’s cashier supposedly pulled the kid’s collar and dragged him to the establishment’s storage room and have interrogated and intimidated him to admit of his alleged crime.
But a serious Ai Ai said with conviction that the accusation on her son was false.
TheBuzz“Alam ko ang totoo, kilala ko ang anak ko,” sobbed Ai Ai. “Pinalaki ko sila sa pagmamahal, may takot sa Diyos, hindi sinungaling at higit sa lahat, pinalaki ko silang hindi magnanakaw.”
The store manager in his message, coerced Ai Ai to search for the truth because in the end, she might be asking for an apology.
“Ikaw sana, alamin mo ang totoo, kilala ko ang anak ko,” defied Ai Ai as response to the statement. “Baka ikaw pa ang mag-sorry sa akin.”
The store manager said that the reports that have been coming out in the newspapers are entirely the opposite of the real story.

I like Patrick Garcia ever since he was a child actor. And i like him more today when instead of denying and avoiding his responsibilities as a young father like other actors did, he's marrying his girl friend Jennylyn who's confirmed to be pregnant.

This is the news:

Nakatanggap ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ng balita kanina lamang, January 3, mula sa isang staff ng showbiz talk show na kumpirmadong buntis ang young actress na si Jennyly Mercado.

Ayon sa source ng PEP, six weeks and two days na ang dinadala ni Jennylyn courtesy ng kanyang boyfriend na si Patrick Garcia. Nagpa-check-up sina Jennylyn at Patrick sa St. Luke's kanina at dito nga nakumpirma ang pagbubuntis ng young actress na magtu-21 years old pa lang sa May 15.

Nang kumpirmahin ng staff ng showbiz talk show ang balitang buntis si Jennylyn, inamin naman daw ito agad ng young actor. Idinagdag pa ni Patrick na pananagutan niya ang dinadala ni Jennylyn.

Sa katunayan, at press time ay kasalukuyang nasa Makati City Hall sina Jennylyn at Patrick at nagpapakonsulta ang dalawa para sa nalalapit nilang pagpapakasal. Ayaw raw kasi ni Patrick, 26, na lumabas ang bata na hindi pa sila kasal ni Jennylyn




Ara Mina sa Anak ng Kumander

Jinky Pacquaio

Hanggang ngayon daw ay hindi pa sila nagkakausap ni Jinky.

Palabas na ngayon ang Anak ng Kumander, na pinagbibidahan nina Manny Pacquiao at Ara Mina. Pero hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin nakakausap ni Ara ang asawa ni Manny na si Jinky Pacquiao para magkapaliwanagan tungkol sa kontrobersiyang kinasangkutan nilang dalawa last year.


Manny Pacquiao

Sa panayam ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Ara ay sinabi niyang umaasa siyang sa taong 2008 ay makakausap na niya ang asawa ng kanyang leading man sa Anak ng Kumander para magkapaliwanagan sila.

Pakiramdam ng sexy actress ay hindi pa handang makiharap sa kanya si Jinky. Kung hihingi naman daw siya ng tulong kay Manny para maging tulay ng pagbabati nila ng asawa ng huli, natitiyak niyang hindi agad-agad itong mapagbigyan ng boksingero dahil alam ni Ara na sobrang abala ito sa ibang bagay.

Willie Revillame

Boto siya kay Willie?

Samantala, lately ay nali-link ang nakababatang kapatid ni Ara na si Cristine Reyes kay Willie Revillame. May balita pa ngang nakita sina Willie Revillame at Cristine Reyes sa Guam nang magkaroon ng show doon ang Wowowee at nakitang magkahawak-kamay ang dalawa habang namimili sila sa Duty Free.

"Si Willie naman, kahit in front of me ay hinu-holding hands niya si Cristine. Wala naman 'yon sa akin dahil marami namang klase ng holding hands," paliwanag ni Ara.

Nilinaw rin ni Ara na hindi siya naniniwala na may namamagitan ngayon sa kanyang kapatid at sa host ng Wowowee. Alam niyang may crush si Willie sa kanyang kapatid at alam din niyang sobrang nawiwili si Cristine sa komedyante dahil palagi siyang pinapatawa nito.

"Pagdating kasi sa lovelife ng kapatid ko, ayokong makialam diyan," sabi ni Ara. "Si Willie naman, parang barkada lang na niyayakap nga kaming magkapatid, e. Close kami. Kumbaga, parang itinuturing ko na 'yan na kapatid. At least may kuya na ako, di ba?"

Ruffa Gutierrez' lonely holidays

Nawala nang tuluyan si Yilmaz sa buhay ni Ruffa Gutierrez. Bagong taon na bagong taon, walang balita mula sa asawa kaya ayun balik siya sa kanyang pamilyang si Eddie Gutierrez at Annabelle Rama.

Ito ang balita.

NEW YEAR WITHOUT YILMAZ. New Year would still be pretty much the same for Ruffa despite the absence of estranged husband Yilmaz.

"Like always, every year, I always spend it with my family, dog... I'll be with my two kids, my mom, my dad, all the Gutierrez family. Magsasama-sama lang kami sa bahay," Ruffa shared excitedly.

The Gutierrez's way of welcoming the New Year is typical of any Filipino family. "We usually hear mass then we eat ng sama-sama. Pinoy na Pinoy ‘di ba?" Ruffa smiled.

For 2008, Ruffa is more determined to be wise when it comes to her finances. Being a single mom with two adoring daughters undoubtedly altered Ruffa's priorities. "Sana makapag-save ako ng marami. ‘Wag masyadong maging magastos, maging praktikal kasi may dalawa na 'kong anak," she admitted.

Ruffa will be greeting 2008 with a busy schedule. "Third week of January, mag-uumpisa na ko ng bagong soap ko sa ABS-CBN and at the same time mag-uumpisa na rin ako ng movie with my mom, My Monster Mom under Regal Films, and siyempre nasa The Buzz pa rin ako every Sunday."

Like any other hard working celebrity, she wished, "Sana more projects sa 2008."
