Claudine Barreto tinanggi na pinaalis niya ang Anghel sa kaniyang dressing room


Ay pinagtanggi-tanggi ni Manay CLaudine na may pinalipad siyang anghel sa kaniyang dressing room ha.

Isa dahil daw wala namang Anghel sa dressing room nya.

Eh bakit kaya may issue? Sinong sumasakay kanino? sige pwede na ninyong sampalin ang katabi ninyo. Ahahay.



NO ANGEL IN DRESSING ROOM. Kasunod ng isyung demanda ng dating P.A. ni Claudine ang paglabas muli ng intriga sa kanila ni Angel Locsin. Takang-taka si Claudine kung bakit may isyu na pinaalis niya ng dressing room sa ASAP si Angel.

"Hindi totoo yun. There was never a time na nagkasama kami sa ASAP at nag-share ng dressing room. Kung may event man na nagkasama kami, that was nung Christmas special pa ng ABS-CBN sa Meralco Theater. But that was a long time na. Bakit ngayon lang [lumabas]?

"And during that time, may iba talaga akong kasama sa dressing room, sina Bea [Alonzo]... Kristine [Hermosa]... yun. Pero bakit ASAP?

"‘Tsaka wala sa personality ko naman ang magpaalis ng tao," malungkot na pahayag ni Claudine.


Hindi siguro siya kagaya ng kapatid niyang si Greta na nabalitang may pinaalis na matanda sa elevator. Totoo kaya yon o tsismis na may-ari ng building pala yon?

Kapag nagge-guest naman daw siya sa ASAP, nire-request niya talaga na solo siya sa dressing room dahil marami siyang laging kasama. At minsan, dinadala pa niya ang kanyang anak kapag may guesting siya sa ASAP. Unless kapag marami talagang artista at kulang na ang dressing room, okey lang sa kanya ang may ka-share.


Ibig bang sabihin nito talagang ayaw niyang may kasama sa dressing room, kaya may pinaalis siya? Malolowka ako.

Na-meet na raw niya si Angel and she's a sweet and nice person naman daw, ayon kay Claudine. She's even looking forward na makatrabaho si Angel sa ABS-CBN.


Naku ha, totoo yan ha.

Di pinakawalan ng PEP si Claudine Barreto nang umattend siya sa unveiling ng magazine ni Dr. Belo para tanungin tungkol sa demanda sa kanya ng dati niyang personal attendant na si Nancy Cruz.

Mataray niyang sinagot na:

"I don't want to talk about it. Ngayon ko lang nalaman ang tungkol diyan.

Nagulat ba siya sa demanda?

"Wala lang. Hindi naman ako nagulat. Basta," kasunod ang pag-iling ni Claudine.

"Matagal na ‘yon. Nauna pa kami sa kanya magsampa ng demanda."

SHERYL CRUZ, DIVORCED NA KAY NORMAN BUSTOS

Hindi siguro makakita ng magandang trabaho si Sheryl Cruz noon sa US kaya nagdecide na umuwi sa Pilipinas. Nagustuhan na dahil pumick-up naman ang career pero, ayun, diniborsiyo ng asawa. Dito nga naman, may katulong siya at malaki ang kaniyang kinikita.

Ito ang balita mula sa PEP.



Sa column ng veteran entertainment columnist na si Ricky Lo sa Philippine Star ngayong araw, March 12, ibinalita niya ang paghihiwalay ng aktres na si Sheryl Cruz at ng kanyang asawa na si Norman Bustos.



Ayon kay Ricky, nakatanggap siya ng tawag mula mismo kay Norman sa San Francisco—kung saan siya nagtatrabaho bilang sheriff—kahapon, March 11.



Malungkot na sinabi ni Norman kay Ricky ang balita tungkol sa kanila ni Sheryl: "Sheryl and I are filing for divorce anytime now."



Kuwento pa ni Ricky, apat na araw bago ang tawag ni Norman ay nakatanggap siya ng email mula rito at tinatanong ang kanyang cell phone number. Ito raw ang maikling mensahe ni Norman sa kanyang email: "This is Norman Bustos, Sheryl Cruz's husband. I would like to get in contact with you as soon as possible. This is in regards to Sheryl and I..."



Matatandaang iniwan ni Sheryl ang kanyang showbiz career sa Pilipinas nang magdesisyon siyang pumunta sa Amerika at doon na manirahan kasama ng kanyang ina, ang dating aktres na si Rosemarie Sonora (nakababatang kapatid ni Susan Roces). Doon na rin sa Amerika nakilala ni Sheryl si Norman.



Ayon kay Ricky, tatlong beses nagpakasal sina Sheryl at Norman. Una ay noong 1996 sa isang civil rite sa Lake Tahoe, Nevada. On the same year, nagkaroon sila ng Catholic wedding dito sa Pilipinas na ginanap sa Ciudad Fernandina sa Greenhills. Panghuli ay noong 1997 sa isang simbahan sa San Francisco kung saan sila tuluyaang nanirahan sa isang malaki at magandang bahay na binili mismo ni Norman mula sa kanyang savings.



NO SIGNS. Huling nakita ni Ricky si Norman apat na linggo lamang ang nakalilipas nang bumisita muli ang mister ni Sheryl dito sa Pilipinas. Sinamahan ni Norman si Sheryl at ang kanilang anak na si Ashley—na magse-seven years old na sa May 25—sa reunion ng Sampaguita stars sa studio ng naturang movie company sa Quezon City.



Wala raw nahalata si Ricky na may problema sa pagsasama nina Sheryl at Norman base sa ikinilos nila sa naturang okasyon.



Pero noon pa man ay marami na ang nagtaka nang magdesisyon si Sheryl na i-resume ang kanyang showbiz career dito sa Pilipinas noong 2004, samantalang si Norman naman ay nanatili sa San Francsico kung saan ito nagtatrabaho.



Dapat sana ay bakasyon lang ang ipinunta ni Sheryl sa Pilipinas ngunit na-extend ito nang na-extend hanggang sa magdesisyon siyang dito na manirahan ulit. Bumili siya ng bahay sa isang subdivision sa Quezon City kung saan sila naninirahan ngayon ni Ashley.



Bagama't regular na bumibisita si Norman sa kanyang mag-ina dito sa Pilipinas, at ganun din si Sheryl, hindi pa rin maiwasan na itanong sa aktres kung wala ba talagang problema sa kanilang pagsasama. Tuwina, sinasabi ni Sheryl na pareho nilang desisyon ni Norman na manatili muna siya rito sa Pilipinas at ipagpatuloy ang kanyang showbiz career. Lagi ring pinabubulaanan ng dating child actress na may problema sila ng kanyang mister.



Ngunit ang tawag na natanggap ni Ricky mula kay Norman ang nagkumpirma sa matagal nang usap-usapan na may problema ang pagsasama nila ni Sheryl.



NO THIRD PARTY. Itinanggi ni Norman sa kolumnista na may third party involved sa paghihiwalay nila ni Sheryl.



Paliwanag ni Norman, "Our long periods of separation have taken their toll. Four years is a long time. She's there working and I'm here working. We have taken different career paths. I understand that she enjoys working in showbiz and she understands that I can't leave my job [in San Francisco].



"I can't join Sheryl in the Philippines and be a burden to her," dagdag niya. "You see, I'm used to working and earning my own keep since I was young and I just couldn't depend on my wife to support me. That's not me. I think we are faced with irreconcilable differences, so... This is a very hard decision for us to make. It's great when we are together but life is just hard and lonely for me when I'm alone, living by myself in our big house. It's a situation that is just unhealthy for any couple."



Sa kabila nito, iginiit ni Norman na "okay" sila ni Sheryl at mapayapa ang kanilang pag-file ng divorce.



"We have regular communication, we are friendly to each other, contrary to rumors that we have had clashes. We are okay," paglilinaw ni Norman.



Para patunayang okay sila ni Sheryl sa kabila ng pagpa-file nila ng divorce, babalik sa Pilipinas si Norman para sa ika-pitong kaarawan ng anak nilang si Ashley.



"Our main concern now is to give our daughter a good life, a good future," sabi ni Norman.



Sinubukan ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) na kunan ng pahayag si Sheryl, ngunit ayon sa manager nitong si Dolor Guevarra ay wala pang statement ang aktres tungkol sa nakatakda nilang divorce ni Norman.

Gimik ba sa Pelikula nilang Monster Mom?

starsinamiilion

Publicity works, good or bad. Annabelle Rama and Ruffa had been very pretty quiet after the Yilmaz affair. Ruffa received movie offers and the co-hosting assignment in the The Buzz.

The movie with the mother Annabelle Rama is going to be due soon and they need a gimmick. Is Lolit Solis, a conspirator? Is Lani Mercado a victim in this feud between Ruffa and Lani?


You do not want to mess with talent manager and Gutierrez matriarch Annabelle Rama.

Several years ago, when news first broke out about possible ties to organized crime by Yilmaz Bektas (this was during a time when Yilmaz was still in the good graces of Annabelle Rama, talent manager and mother of the former's then wife Ruffa Gutierrez), a joke went around a small circle of writers--said joke was directed at journalist, poet and now singer Pete Lacaba.

Pete, who was the magazine editor who helped break the story about Yilmaz supposed organized crime connections, received ribbing from at least one of those writers that went this way: "Pete, if you escaped the clutches of Ferdinand Marcos during the Martial Law years, you won't get away so easily from Annabelle Rama. Watch your back."

Of course, Pete, who had his share of activism and imprisonment during the Marcos dictatorship, only laughed off such remarks.

However, after Annabelle Rama's Sunday interview over The Buzz with host Boy Abunda, we can only wonder if Pete is sweating... even just a little bit.

Not fighting?
Believe it or not, Annabelle kept on saying throughout the interview that she wasn't in fighting mode. Then she proceeded to launch waves of verbal shock and awe onto Lani Mercado (actress and wife of Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr.), entertainment writer and "Umagang Kay Ganda" host Ogie Diaz and longtime friend and nemesis-of-the-moment Lolit Solis.

During lulls when the artillery smoke cleared, Annabelle would remind the audience that she's just explaining why she challenged Lolit to a fistfight a few days ago. It was a challenge that inspired visions of an Ultimate Fighting Championship-style of cage match between the two showbiz titans in the minds of the entertainment press. Even columnist Ricky Lo compared the brewing tensions to something tha required United Nations intervention.

According to Annabelle, the entire controversy should not have happened if only the camp of Lani and Lolit kept quiet about an alleged snubbing incident between Lani and Ruffa, during the birthday party of TV executive Wilma Galvante.

Annabelle supporter her daughter's story that she (Ruffa) was snubbed by Lani. Ruffa had come up to Lani to try and buss the latter on the cheek. As attested to by Ruffa and some showbiz reporters, Lani turned away, leaving Ruffa kissing the air.

The incident naturally made its way into the tabloids, first as a blind item and later identifying Ruffa and Lani as the ones involved. This alleged snub had notable significance for the entertainment press, which still remembers the rumors that spread many years ago--when Ruffa was only 15 years old--that Ruffa and Bong (at the time already married to Lani) had an affair.

In subsequent interviews, Lani already apologized to Ruffa publicly, explaining that she was simply in a hurry and "did not notice" the statuesque Ruffa, who is a former Miss World beauty pageant winner.

Annabelle told The Buzz host on Sunday however that she already sensed trouble brewing when she saw Ruffa approach Lani at Galvante's birthday bash.

"Alam ko na yon that night may gulo eh. Kasi kitang-kita ko si Lani tumalikod kay Ruffa. Sabi ko kay Ruffa that night pa lang 'Ruffa, wag ka nang mag-comment kasi baka
lumaki ang issue, okay? Yung kalaban mo walang career baka gagamitin ka niyan.

"Ang nangyari may mga press palang nakakita. Ang press ang nag-headline nagsusulat ng blind item. Pinick-up naman ng The Buzz at Ruffa has to answer here in The Buzz. Kaya doon nag-umpisa ang issue."

(I knew from that night there would be trouble. I saw clearly how Lani turned away from Ruffa. I told Ruffa afterwards not to make any comment that would make an issue out of what happened. But it turned out that the press saw what happened. They picked it up and published it. The Buzz also picked it up and Ruffa had to respond to it. That's how this whole thing started.)

'Lolit lied to me'
Annabelle said that she would not have been so angry at Lolit if the latter did not break an agreement they had over the phone. Annabelle said that she asked Lolit not to talk about the issue anymore and allow it to die down.

Annabelle said that Lolit, who manages the showbiz careers of both Lani and Bong, agreed not to speak a word about the incident anymore.

However, the next day, Ruffa came to Annabelle crying about some things Lolit said on the radio and wrote about in the papers. Annabelle said that she at first told Ruffa to ignore whatever Lolit was saying.

"The next day si Ruffa umiiyak sa akin, 'napakasama naman ng sinabi ni Lolit sa akin, below the belt'. Ruffa, ayoko makipag-away this time, wag ka na magbasa ng diyaryo para hindi maging bad mood ka.

"Iyak siya ng iyak sa akin tapos binasa ko ang sama-sama. Ang isyu ni Lolit hindi nakatutok dun sa isyu na isnaban. Ang isyung ginagawa niya puro Bong at puro Lani. Pabalik-balik sinasabi niya sa interview niya legal wife."

(Ruffa came to me crying about Lolit's "below the belt" comments on the radio and in her column. I told Ruffa that I didn't want a fight and I told her not to read the papers anymore so she won't get in a funk. She kept on crying so finally I read the paper. It was terrible. Lolit didn't talk about the snubbing incident at all. She kept on talking all about Bong and Lani, and kept harping on Lani being the legal wife.)

According to Annabelle, she simply couldn't let Lolit get away with what she wrote. In Annabelle's view, Lolit implied that Ruffa really had the hots for Bong, suggesting that the rumored affair was true.

Annabelle also slammed Lolit for implying that Ruffa was one of the many women who went gaga over Bong's, um, substantial manly attribute. This, Annabelle said, was what prompted her to challenge Lolit to a fistfight.

"Hindi ako pumunta dito, Boy, para makipag-away. Never ako nag-umpisa ng away... pag ang aking anak binibira nang hindi na tama talagang lumalaban ako... basta anak na ang pinag-uusapan. Ako mabait akong tao, mabait ako, disente paminsan-minsan.

"Pag ako kinakanti, bastos ang bunganga ko, bastos ako magsalita at ayaw ko yung puro dada. Gusto ko suntukan, sabunutan. Ikaw nag-umpisa ako ang tatapos. Bakit napunta doon ang issue? Si Ruffa hindi naglalaway kay Bong!"

(I did not come over to this show, Boy, to fight. I never start fights...but if my children are attacked unfairly I really fight... for my children's sake. I'm a nice person. I can be a decent person sometimes. But if you piss me off, I say rude, terrible things. Why did the issue go from a simple snub to an issue between Ruffa, Lani and Bong? Ruffa is not drooling over Bong!)

'Judas tears'
Annabelle had more than an earful of unsolicited advice to Lani Mercado. She said that if only Lani had said even a grudging "hello" to Ruffa, the entire controversy would not have happened.

"Asawa ka ng isang politician, okay? Sikat na artista. Hindi ka dapat nag-supladita 'day. Napaka-supladita mo. Ano ba naman yung mag 'Hi' ka kay Ruffa? Maski ang 'Hi'
mo lalabas sa ilong mo okay na rin yon at least nag-'Hi' ka. Okay? Hindi yung napaka-suplada mo 'day, hindi ko alam kung bakit.

"Ba't ka ba galit kay Ruffa, inggit ka kay Ruffa? Wag kang mainggit kay Ruffa 'day. Kasi ang alam ko lahat ng mga asawa ng politician mababait. 'Hi' nang 'hi' sa lahat ng tao, kailangan mo ng boto siyempre, 'Hi' ka ng 'hi' 'di ba? Maski hindi mo kaibigan."

(Lani, you're the wife of a politician and a famous actor. You shouldn't be so snobbish. Was it so hard to say "Hi" to Ruffa, even if you didn't completely mean it? Why are you angre at Ruffa? Are you envious? You shouldn't be. From what I know, politicians wives are very gracious and accomodating. They keep saying 'hi' to people to win them over. After all, you need votes. So you keep saying 'hi' even to those who aren't your friends.)

Annabelle than denied that Ruffa is even remotely interested in Bong.

"Lani walang nang-aagaw sa yo 'day. Kung si Ruffa ang aasahan mo na aagaw sa asawa mo nagkakamali ka. Maski wala si Yilmaz sa buhay ni Ruffa ngayon wala syang panahon agawin ang asawa mo. Iyong-iyo na, isaksak mo sa baga mo kung gusto mo."

(Lani no one is stealing your husband from you. If you think Ruffa will do that, you're mistaken. Even if Yilmaz isn't in Ruffa's life she has no time for your husband. Your husband is all yours, stick him down your lungs if you want.)

She also gave Lani a tip on how to behave properly to keep her man in line:

"Hindi ako salbahe, Boy. Kasi kung ako salbahe matagal na wala sa akin ang asawa ko. Kaya ikaw, Lani, para ang asawa mo bumait sa iyo, at wala kang kalaban, wala kang kaaway, magpakabait ka. Kaya alagaan mo ang asawa mo para hindi siya mangangaliwa. Ganun ginawa ko sa asawa ko eh.

"Lani, I'm sorry hindi ako ang nagpapalaki sa issue. Ikaw ang nagpapalaki sa issue atsaka ang manager mo. Kasi kung marunong ka tinawagan mo si Lolit pinapahinto mo ang bunganga ng manager mo. Ang ginawa mo parang kinukunsinti mo pa si Lolit. Hindi mo siya pinapatigil eh, ako pinapatigil mo.

(I'm not a bad person, Boy. If I were my husband would have left me long ago. So you, Lani, so that your husband becomes nice to you and you don't earn enemies, you should be nice. You should take care of your husband so he doesn't fool around. That's what i do with my husband.)

Annabelle also demanded a more sincere apology from Lani. "Yung pag sabi mong sorry mo sa akin, kay Ruffa hindi sincere. Hindi galing sa puso. Yung iyak niya iyak ni Hudas yon, nakita ko eh."

(You're apology to me and Ruffa on TV wasn't sincere. It didn't come from your heart. I saw it on TV, you were crying like Judas.)

We've all heard about "crocodile tears", but Annabelle seems to have added a new idiom to the English language with "Judas tears".

Truce, betrayal
It's not easy for someone like Lolit Solis to back down. This is evident in her response to actors Sam Milby and Piolo Pascual, who filed a P12-million libel case against her, allegedly for writing in her column that they are gay lovers.

When it comes to Annabelle, however, Lolit seems to have softened and practically waved a white flag already.

"Si Ruffa talaga ang tingin ko parang anak ko eh, nakita ko syang lumaki, nag-asawa, nagkaron ng anak, nahiwalay sa asawa, parang talagang she grew up sa mata ko, kaya mahal na mahal ko si Ruffa.

"Ayaw ko makipag-away kay Annabelle, hindi dahil natatakot ako sa kanya, hindi dahil ayokong ano, wala akong iiwanang laban. Kung kailangan kong makipag-away
makikipag-away ako pero ayokong makipag-away sa kanya dahil tinitingnan ko pa rin yung 30 years na naging friendship namin," Lolit told the press.

(Ruffa is like a daughter to me. I love her so much. I don't want to fight Annabelle. I'm not afraid of her and I never run from a fight. I fight when I have to but I don't want to fight her because I value our 30 years of friendship.)

Lolit maintains that even if she talked about the women rumored to be involved with Bong, she never pointed the finger at Ruffa as one of Bong's women.

From Annabelle's remarks, however, she seems to be more hurt and angry because of a perceived betrayal of her by Lolit.

"Ang ayaw ko lang kay Lolit kaya nagalit ako sa kanya, Boy, kasi tinawagan ko siya eh. Lolit, sabi ko, nakiusap sa akin si Bong. Kung pwede lang wag na kayong kumibo at hindi na ako kikibo. Kasi ang balita ko titirahin mo raw si Ruffa sa Startalk punto by punto. Ano bang ginawa ng anak ko sa iyo?

"Tama na ito, nakiusap sa akin si Bong. Tama na wala na tayong sasabihin sa press, tahimik ka, tahimik ako. Para akong tinatraydor ni Lolit. The next day putak siya ng putak sa radyo atsaka sa dyaryo. Ang sasama pa ng sinasabi tungkol kay Ruffa. Ang isyu lang isnaban bakit napunta doon sa mga personal ni Bong?"

(What I didn't like was that Lolit went back on her word. I told her that I'm willing to shut up out of sympathy for Bong, who appealed to me not to make this a big issue. I told her to keep quiet and I'll keep quiet. That's because I heard that she planned a tirade against Ruffa on her show Startalk. What did my daughter ever do to her? It's like she betrayed me. The next day she kept blabbing on the radio saying terrible things about Ruffa. The issue was the snub so how did it get to Bong's personal affairs?)

That, according to Annabelle, was the last straw. She couldn't believe that Lolit, a friend for 30 years, would turn against her and her daughter. She called up Lolit and went ballistic.

"Pinagmumura ko na siya. Wala kang kwentang kausap. Nagsinungaling ka pa sa akin sabi mo hindi ka na kikibo. Nung nabasa ko ang dyaryo at narinig ko siya sa radyo, sabi ko, nakalimutan yata ni Lolit na ang nanay ni Ruffa ay ako. Kasi parang binabale-wala niya ang friendship namin. Mas kinampihan pa niya si Lani."

(I cursed her to high heavens. I called her a liar. I kept thinking that Lolit completely forgot that I'm Ruffa's mother. It's like she threw our friendship away and chose to side with Lani over me.)

Apologies given, demanded
After having vented a lot of her anger, Annabelle turned apologetic.

"Eto si Bong, naawa ako kay Bong. Bong I'm very, very sorry sa mga salitang nabitawan ko tungkol sa yo kasi hindi pwedeng hindi kita ma-involve... kasi yung manager
mo laging binabanggit ang pangalan mo sa issue."

(I'm really sorry for Bong. Bong I'm very, very sorry for the things I said about you but I can't help but get you involved... that's because your manager keeps dragging your name into the issue.)

Then Annabelle's mood changed, as though remembering something. She told Boy that she's embarrased about the scandal because she might turn off Sharon Cuneta and Sharon's daughter KC Concepcion.

"Alam ko nanood sa akin si KC saka si Sharon. Nakakahiya naman itong akong pinagsasabi baka ma-discourage sa akin si KC. Pangarap ko pa naman magkaroon sila ng movie atsaka TV show. Pati ako kinikilig sa inyong dalawa."

(I know that KC and Sharon are watching. I'm embarrassed and concerned that what I'm saying might discourage KC from having anything to do with me. That would be bad because I've been dreaming of a tandem between my son Richard and KC. I dream of a film and TV show starring the two of them together. Just like their fans, I get goosebumps and all giggly at the thought of them being together.)

Annabelle then told Boy, who was already laughing loudly at her remarks, that she would welcome a reel-to-real life love story between Richard and KC.

Turning serious again, Annabelle said that she won't be able to forgive Lolit right away.

"Boy, hindi ganun kabilis hindi naman ako robot de-susi. Paandarin mo, patayin. Hindi pwede. (Boy, I'm not a wind-up toy robot that you can turn on and off. I need time.)"

She also asked for a public apology from Lolit.

"Lolit bago kita mapatawad, Lolit mag-public apology ka kay Ruffa na hindi siya kasama sa mga babae naglalaway kay Bong atsaka doon sa ano ni Bong. Hindi siya
naglalaway doon. Gusto mo akong maging kaibigan ulit mag-public apology ka."

(Lolit before I can forgive you you have to make a public apology to Ruffa. Tell her that she isn't one of the women drooling over Bong. She's not drooling over Bong's thing. If you want to be my friend again make a public apology.)

Annabelle also expressed willingness to forgive Ogie Diaz , whom she repeatedly accuses of deliberately trying to bismirch the reputations of Richard and Ruffa. Before she expressed the possibility of forgiveness, she couldn't stop herself from making a colorful description of Diaz.

"Si Ogie naman duwag naman yang baklang yan, Boy, eh. Kasi pag tinatawagan ko hindi naman siya sumasagot... para bang malamya ang kanyang boses na hindi na parang hindi ako kinakalaban. Ogie palagi mong sinasabi mo sa akin mahal mo ang pamilya ko. Kung mahal mo talaga si Richard dapat galing sa puso.

"'Wag ka nang magba-blind item. Kasi mga reporter nagba-blind item mga duwag yan. Pangalanan mo ang gusto mong pangalanan... tigilan mo na paninira sa mga anak ko, okay? Hindi ka nakakatuwa 'dong 'no nakakabwisit ka sa buhay ko."

(That gay Ogie is a coward, Boy. I call him up to confront him and he gets all meek on me, as if he's not attacking me in his write-ups and radio shows. Ogie, you keep saying you love my family and you love Richard. But you should say that only when you mean if from your heart. Don't write blind items anymore. Reporters who do that are cowards. Name names. Stop trying to ruin my kids, okay? You're not funny anymore, you're such a source of irritation in my life.)

And that, folks, is Annabelle Rama when she's "not trying to pick a fight."

Annabelle Rama is currently shooting the movie "Monster Mom" for Regal Films, where she plays the title role.

ANNABELLE RAMA HINAMON SI LOLIT SOLIS AT OGIE DIAZ


May intiga na naman ang mag-inang Ruffa Gutierrez atAnnabelle Rama dahil sa isnabang nangyari kay Lani at Ruffa. Hinahamon ng away ni Annabelle sina Ogie Diaz at Lolit Solis.

Ito ang balita:


A fuming Annabelle Rama challenged talent manager and entertainment writer Lolit Solis along with showbiz writer and "Umagang Kay Ganda" host Ogie Diaz to fisticuffs for their "disrespectful" comments against her children.

Rama is the mother of actress, model and 1993 Miss World Second Princess Ruffa Gutierrez and actor and model Richard Gutierrez.

Rama was angered by comments made by Solis and Diaz in their newspaper columns and radio shows following a snubbing incident between Ruffa and Lani Mercado, the wife of Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr.

Earlier reports said Ruffa and Lani both attended the birthday celebration of GMA-7 executive Wilma Galvante and that Ruffa came up to Lani and tried to greet her with a buss on the cheek.

Just as Ruffa was bending over toward Lani, the latter turned away. As a result, Ruffa was left kissing the air. The beauty queen even joked about the incident on Sunday on ABS-CBN's The Buzz, where she is one of the hosts.

"My pretty, perfect pouty lips [were] left hanging on air," she quipped, laughing.

The matter would have ended as just another embarrassing showbiz faux pax but then Solis and Diaz reminded the public about an alleged affair between Bong Revilla and Ruffa.

Past affair

In his column "Dakila" in The People's Tonight on March 5, Diaz wrote: "Ngayon nagre-react sila dahil inisnab daw ni Lani si Ruffa, nalaman ngayon ng mga tao na may nakaraan pala sila Ruffa at Bong."

(Because of their reaction over Lani's snub of Ruffa, people were reminded that Ruffa and Bong had a past affair.)

Rama said that the comments made by Diaz and Solis are uncalled for and show how much they disrespect the Gutierrez family.

"Hindi ko maintindihan bakit sobra-sobra ang reaksyon mo sa pagtira sa anak ko. Lolit nakalimutan mo na ba kung saan ka galing? Dati katulong ka ni Mother Lily, hinaharbatan mo ko ng bag, ng pera, bininigay ko sa 'yo dahil mahal kita, nirespeto kita.

"Ngayon di mo ako nirerespeto dahil kinakalaban mo anak ko, pati mga apo ko tinatamaan mo. Ngayon Lolit Solis kung matapang ka, hinahamon kita sabihin mo saan, ano'ng oras gusto mo mag-upakan tayo ngayon din, ok sa kin!," Rama told ABS-CBN's Mario Dumaual.

(I don't understand why you're reacting that way and attacking my daughter. Lolit, have you forgotten where you came from? Before, when you were still a maid for Mother Lily, you would beg me to give you bags, to give you money, and I would give them to you because I love you, and I respect you. But now you don't respect me because you're attacking my daughter, even my grandchildren. Now Lolit Solis I'm challenging you, you pick the place, the time; even if you want a fistfight right now, I'm game!)

Two against one

Rama added that Solis threw thirty years of their friendship away because of her comments. Rama said she was particularly offended by Solis' claim that many women go crazy over Bong Revilla because he's "well-endowed", thus implying that it's the same case with Ruffa.

Rama also revealed that she already talked to Lolit Solis and asked her not to stir things up in the media but the latter betrayed their agreement.

She also accused Diaz of deliberately attacking her family in the media.

"Isa ka pa Ogie Diaz humarap ka rin sa akin, lagi mong sinisiraan sina Ruffa at Richard. Kayong dalawa ni Lolit, kayo against me!" she said.

(Face me, Ogie Diaz. You always slander Ruffa and Richard. Both you and Lolit are against me!)

Revilla has declined further comment, saying that the issue between him and Ruffa happened a long time ago. With a report by Mario Dumaual

LOLIT SOLIS DEFENDED LANI MERCADO'S SNUBBING OF RUFFA GUTIERREZ

celebritiescorner

Syempre, ipagtatanggol ni Lolit SOlis ang talent niyang si Lani MErcado tungkol sa snubbing incident.

Ito ang balita:

Hindi na napigilan ng talent manager na si Lolit Solis ang tumahimik lamang tungkol sa isyu ng isnaban sa pagitan ng alaga niyang si Lani Mercado at ni Ruffa Gutierrez.


Noong Linggo, March 2, ay nagpahayag si Ruffa sa The Buzz ng kanyang pagkadismaya sa diumano'y hindi pagpansin sa kanya ni Lani noong birthday party ng SVP for Entertainment TV ng GMA-7 na si Ms. Wilma Galvante.

Ayon sa kuwento ni Ruffa sa interview ng The Buzz, "Alam mo naman ako, forever Miss PR. ‘Hi, hello.' So, siyempre kiss ako. ‘Hello, Senator. Hello, Lani.' Siyempre nakaganun yung lips ko , ‘Hello.' Tapos bigla akong tinalikuran."



Patuloy niya, "She left my poor perfect pouty lips in the air na like that. Siyempre, napahiya naman ako, di ba? My God, in-ignore ako! Ano kaya ang ginawa ko? And then, ‘pag ganun [paghalik] ko, she just turned around, tinalikuran and then she left. Sabi ko, ‘Donita [Rose], nakita mo ‘yon? What did I do? Bakit niya ako tinalikuran?"


Sa kabilang banda, pinili naman ni Lani ang manahimik na lang ukol sa isyu upang maiwasan na ang paglaki nito.


LOLIT'S REACTION. Ngunit hindi nagpaawat ang TV host-columnist sa pagbibigay ng kanyang opinyon. Bilang sagot sa mga naging pahayag ni Ruffa, kinapanayam ng entertainment columnist na si Ogie Diaz sa kanyang showbiz radio program na Wow, Ang Showbiz! ang talent manager na si Lolit. Siya ang humahawak sa showbiz career ng mag-asawang Bong Revilla at Lani Mercado.

Ayon sa interview kay Manay Lolit, na nailathala rin sa People's Journal ngayon, March 5, sinabi niya, "Ang ipinagtataka ko lang, ba't kailangang maging obligasyon ni Lani ang batiin ang kahit sino? Ang mga na-link sa asawa niya, eh, siya ang legal wife?

"Hindi pa ba sapat na civil lang si Lani at kailangan talaga, makipagplastikan yung tao sa mga nali-link sa asawa niya, sa mga sumasabit-sabit na babae kay Bong?"

Dagdag pa ni Lolit, nalaman pa raw tuloy ng publiko na naging magkarelasyon noon sina Ruffa at Bong dahil sa paglabas ng isyu na ito.

Aniya, "'Day, sa totoo lang, hindi si Lani ang nagpalaki ng isyung ito, sila. Kung hindi sila kumibo, hindi sila nag-react, deadma, di ba?

"Ngayon, nagre-react sila dahil inisnab daw ni Lani si Ruffa, nalaman ngayon ng mga tao na may nakaraan pala si Ruffa at si Bong. Dati ba, may nasulat na naging sina Bong at Ruffa? Wala naman, ah? Kaya si Lani, tahimik lang.

"Hindi siya dapat mag-react, dahil siya ang legal wife!" mariing sabi ni Lolit.

Nang tanungin kung baka posibleng maging dahilan pa ito ng pag-aaway nila ni Annabelle Rama, ina ni Ruffa, ang matapang na sagot ni Lolit, "Naku, 'pag nakita ko si Annabelle, sasabihin ko rin sa kanya na ang daming babae ang sumasabit-sabit sa asawa niya [Eddie Gutierrez] no'n, kaya 'pag tumatalak siya, naiintindihan siya ng mga tao, dahil siya ang legal wife!"

SNOOKY'S SERNA'S RAPIST, SINO SYA?

Actress Snooky Serna on Sunday claimed that the guy who raped her when she was 14 years old was an actor and one of her leading men.

In the “Don't Lie To Me" segment of Showbiz Central, Snooky replied “yes" when asked if the man who abused her was also in show business.

The lie detector showed that her answer was "true."

Snooky Serna was born on April 4, 1966 which makes her 14 years old by 1980-1981.

She made two movies during this period. One was “Underage,” with Maricel Soriano, Dina Bonnevie, Gabby Concepcion, Mark Gil, Edgar Mande, Jimi Melendez and Dennis Marasigan.

The other one was in 1981, a movie with his ex-boyfriend Albert Martinez which is entitled “Bata pa si Sabel.”

Snooky also mentioned that the actor who raped her is still active in showbiz today… can you guess who is it?

Gabby Concepcion and Edgar Mande are no longer active. I do not know who Dennis Marasigan is.

KRIS AQUINO, PREGNANT?

It seems, Kris is enjoying her married life after last year's Hope scandal. She and husband are always taking time out for themselves to bond with or without the kids.

So a probable news of another stork visit is welcomed in the family.

Here's the excerpt of the news from GMA7.

Usap-usapan ngayon sa loob at labas ng show business ang diumano'y muling pagbubuntis ni Kris Aquino. Ilang araw nang umiikot ang balitang ito—na nagsimula sa isang blind item dito sa PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal)—pero walang anumang pahayag ang TV host-actress.

Kasalukuyang nasa Phuket, Thailand, si Kris kasama ang kanyag mister na si James Yap. Silang dalawa lang ang umalis as part of their bonding moment. Naiwan ang mga anak ni Kris na si Joshua at Baby James sa kani-kanilang mga yaya at staff. From Phuket, didiretso ang mag-asawa sa Bangkok.

Umalis sina Kris at James kahapon, March 3, isang araw pagkatapos ng championship game ng Purefoods at Sta. Lucia sa PBA last Sunday, March 2. Second place ang team na kinabibilangan ni James, ang Purefoods.

Babalik sina Kris at James on March 10.

After a week, posibleng bumalik ang mag-asawa sa Phuket o di kaya ay sa Hong Kong na paborito ni Joshua. Kung anuman ang mapagdesisyunan ni Kris pagbalik nila ni James sa Thailand, doon na magbabakasyon ang pamilya ni Kris sa Holy Week. Bakasyon daw kasi talaga para sa pamilya ni Kris ang buwan ng Marso.

This Friday, March 7, maku-confirm kung buntis nga o hindi si Kris. Kapag hindi raw siya dinatnan this Friday ng kanyang monthly period, 'tsaka lang makukumpirma kung may kasunod na nga si Baby James

KARYLLE DISPELLED BREAK-UP RUMOR

celebritiescorner
Karylle, the daughter of popular diva Zsa Zsa Padilla to her first huusband denied that she broke up with the boy friend Dingdong Dantes.

Here is her explanation to PEP.

Nakausap ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Karylle upang linawin ang kumalat na balita noong nakaraang linggo na hiwalay na sila ng kanyang kasintahan na si Dingdong Dantes.



Noong una'y sa texting lang muna kami nakipag-usap kay Karylle at sinabi pa nito sa amin na huwag nang ilabas pa ang sagot niya ukol sa isyu. Baduy na raw kasi kung ilalabas pa ang sagot niya na wala namang katotohanan ang balitan.



Pero nang banggitin naming mukhang hindi titigil ang mga tsismis tungkol sa kanilang "hiwalayan" kung walang statement na manggagaling sa kanya, tumawag na nang tuluyan si Karylle sa aming cellphone para magbigay ng kanyang statement.



"Baka kasi I was in Las Vegas for almost a week kaya siguro may isyu na naman ng breakup," kaswal lang na pahayag ni Karylle sa amin. "Lahat kami sa family, we were in Vegas for my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary.



"Hindi ko nga alam where it [breakup rumor] came from. Kasi, bago pa ‘ko umalis for Vegas, nag-shoot pa kami ng MTV ni Dong. Gumanap kami na lolo at lola, parang yun ang presentation namin for my lolo at lola nga [Zsa Zsa Padilla's parents, Carlos and Cating Padilla, ang tinutukoy na lolo at lola ni Kaye]. So, yun ba ang nag-break?" natatawa na lang na pagpapatuloy ni Karylle.



Ayon pa kay Karylle, Saturday raw yata when she read an article about their "breakup." Ang nakakatawa pa raw nito, she was having dinner with Dingdong's family and her dad. It was a very nice dinner where they cooked burgers, pizza, pasta, and steak.
