Krista Ranillo apologized to Bianca King

 Pareho lang naman palang manager, may issue pang ganito?
Minsan di mo malaman kung ano ang pubilicity at aling ang hindi.

Ito ang balita.

Bianca King has accepted Krista Ranillo’s apology on behalf of her aunt Suzette Ranillo who unceremoniously brought out Bianca’s things outside the tent she was supposed to share with Krista during one of the shootings for “Wapakman.”

Bianca aired her side of the story in an interview aired on “Showbiz News Ngayon,” Dec. 9.
She said that although she has her own dressing room, she transferred to Krista’s after her (Bianca) tent became overcrowded with other talents who were also staying there.
Bianca stressed that she secured producer Wilson Tieng’s approval prior to transfer.
“After a few minutes, dumating na si Krista kasama ang companions niya and with her tita. I thought everything was okay. Tsinika ko [pa] sila,” Bianca explained.
She added: “[But] when I got back sa tent, 'yong mga gamit ko nasa labas na. Naloka ako nang konti. Sobrang na-offend talaga ako.”
Bianca later learned who moved her things out of the tent.
“'Yong tita po, si Suzette,’ sabi [sa akin] ng bodyguard. ‘'Yon po, si Ma’m Suzette po, buhat-buhat ang gamit ni Ma’m Bianca tapos dinala sa labas.’”
Arnold Vegafria, Bianca and Krista’s manager, called for a meeting where the two actresses threshed out the issue.

Dolphy Cannot Marry Zsa Zsa

Why is it that every time there is something that Zsazsa or Dolphy is going to promote, it is always the marriage which becomes the issue. So boring. As if the people would care.

Here is the news:

COMEDY King Dolphy said he has come to accept the likelihood that he and singer-actress Zsazsa Padilla, his partner of over 20 years (and with whom he has two daughters), may never get to tie the knot.
At 16, Zsazsa married dentist Modesto Tatlonghari, whom she lived with for seven years. They have a daughter, singer-actress Karylle. In 1990, Zsazsa eloped with Dolphy, 36 years her senior. They have two kids, Nicole and Zia.

In 2003, Zsazsa filed for annulment, which hit a big snag early this year.
“I don’t think there’s anything we can do about it now,” Dolphy said during a media gathering for his latest movie “Nobody, Nobody... But Juan,” a Metro Manila Film Festival entry.
“We were set to get married; we had paid the first $25,000 for the venue,” the award-wining actor added. I guess it’s not meant to happen. We’ve discussed this. What’s important now is that we’re still together.”


Gina Alajar versus the Buzz

 Nayong may threat ng demanda ang mga nagsulat ng tungkol kay Manny Pacquiao at Krista Ranillo ay nagpapasahan ng responsibilidad sa pagkakalabas ng tsismis sa media.

Si Gina Alajar ay humihingi ng apology sa The Buzz sa pagkakakopya ng kaniyang entry sa Facebook.

Instead of acceding to Gina Alajar’s demand for public apology over the use of her Facebook shout-out in one of its segments, ABS-CBN Sunday talk show, “The Buzz,” held its ground and aired the opinions of media practitioners and celebrities alike---as with that of a lawyer---about using Facebook.

The show defined the term “shout-out” that is used in the social networking site according to Merriam-Webster. “Shout-out,” as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is “a brief expression of greeting or praise given especially on a broadcast or audio recording.” Its synonyms, if used as a verb, are “announce” and “make public.”

It is recalled that Gina posted on her Facebook account the following shout-out about husband and wife Manny and Jinkee Pacquiao and starlet Krista Ranillo.

“If I were Jinkee Pacquiao, I would not give up Manny… Krista Ranillo is not at all worth it!”

To bolster their argument, “The Buzz” featured celebrities invariably agreeing with the Merriam-Webster definition of “shout-out.” Some, including Diether Ocampo, Lea Salonga, Ai-Ai de las Alas and Nikki Gil, said that the social networking site is “public property, so I guess we just have to be responsible.”


The Wife of Francism refused to include FrancisM in the Pinoy Walk of Fame

 Many celebrities would like to be included in the Pinoy Walk of Fame on Eastwood City in Libis Quezon 
City. FrancisM was among the list who will be honored this year but the wife refused the honor.
Whatever is her reason is probably is too personal to discuss.

MANILA, Philippines—FrancisM is on the list of 30 new inductees to the Pinoy Walk of Fame on Eastwood City in Libis, but his widow, Pia Arroyo-Magalona, seems to be opposing it.
Show biz impresario German “Kuya Germs” Moreno, who started the annual induction to the local version of Hollywood’s Walk of Fame in 2006, is apparently irked by Pia’s objection.
“I asked her permission, but she declined,” Kuya Germs said. “I talked to Malou Choa Fagar (producer of “Eat Bulaga,” where FrancisM was one of the cohosts) to help me convince Pia, to no avail.”
Among the first inductees were FrancisM’s parents, Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran. “Francis was very happy when we put his parents’ ‘stars’ on the walk,” Kuya Germs recalled. “He even asked when he would get his own star.”
Inquirer tried to call Pia for comment but she could not be reached.
This year’s other inductees are: Luis Gonzales, Armida Siguion-Reyna, Jose Mari Chan, Basil Valdez, Rico J. Puno, Rey Valera, Hajji Alejandro, Apo Hiking Society, Jaclyn Jose, Ricky Davao, Jackie Lou Blanco, Gabby Concepcion, Niño Muhlach, Cherry Pie Picache, Jed Madela, Aiza Seguerra, Ogie Alcasid, Sarah Geronimo, Jolina Magdangal, Janno Gibbs, Michael V, John Lloyd Cruz, KC Concepcion, Marky Cielo, Isko Moreno, Yul Servo, Christian Bautista, Dingdong Avanzado and Nonito Donaire.
Their stars will be unveiled Dec. 1. At press time, Kuya Germs was still hopeful he could include FrancisM’s.


Death Threats for Krista Ranillo and Family

Sa kabila ng pagsasalita ng mga taong sangkot sa isyung may relasyon diumano sina Manny Pacquiao at Krista Ranillo, hindi pa rin matigil-tigil ang usap-usapan tungkol dito.

Now that the Ranillo Family threatens to bring the case to the court, the latest news from Camp Ranillo is that death threats are received by the family. That is the reason why Krista is still in US.

Here is an excerpt of the news.

Ang pinakahuling balita nga ay nakakatanggap na raw ng death threats ang pamilya Ranillo bunsod ng pag-uugnay kay Krista at sa Pambansang Kamao. Ito ang isiniwalat ng kampo ni Krista sa isang statement na ipinadala nila sa media kahapon, November 25.

Ayon sa kampo ni Krista, ang death threats na ito ay galing diumano sa mga hindi kilalang tao "who are claiming that such inappropriate relationship exists."

Dagdag pa ng legal counsel at spokesman ng mga Ranillo na si Atty. Tonisito Umali, ang death threats na ito raw ang isa sa malaking dahilan kung bakit hindi pa bumabalik ng Pilipinas ang pamilya Ranillo.



It is good that Manny Pacquiao apologized from the family of Krista Ranillo. He also denied that there was a romance between the two of them.

Here is the news:

Finally, a denial from the pound-for-pound king.After weeks of speculation, boxing icon Manny Pacquiao categorically denied his alleged illicit affair with actress Krista Ranillo. He also apologized to Krista’s family for the intrigues caused by their purported non-romance.
In an interview aired on GMA 7 on Sunday night and on the news program “24 Oras” Monday, Pacquiao said in Filipino: “We’re just good friends... I didn’t mean to destroy your family... the public just rode on the issue.”
There have been rumors circulating in the tabloids and blogs that the scandal was concocted to promote Pacquiao and Krista’s coming movie, “Wapakman,” an entry in next month’s Metro Manila Film Festival

I have suspected that this is all but gimmick for the movie of Pacquiao. His leading lady Rufa Mae Quinto can't be used for such a gimmick because she already said before that her boyfriend is very jealous.

I like Johnny Delgado as an actor. He was one of the best actors, the movie industry had. Today Thursday however, he succumbed to cancer.

Here is the news:

Movie and television actor Johnny Delgado has passed away after a year of battling cancer. He was 61.

 KRISTA RANILLO, the rumored girl friend of Manny Pacquiao denied that she is involved with the boxing champ. She claimed that she is still with her boyfriend/director.

Here is the news:

Sexy actress Krista Ranillo has categorically denied romantic involvement with boxing champ Manny Pacquiao in a chat interview aired on GMA-7’s “24 Oras,” Nov. 18.
“I’m still with Dom,” said Krista, referring to her boyfriend-director Dominic Zapata.
Krista added that she is aware of the issue romantically linking her to Manny but she refused to elaborate for now.
“We’re still discussing when and how we would speak [about the issue],” she said.
In a text message sent to GMA-7, Zapata neither confirmed nor denied that he and Krista are still lovers.
"Suffice it to say that there are non-truths being told. I guess that's all I'm going to say," Dominic told GMA News.
The sexy actress also rebuffed rumors that she’s in that interesting stage.


Mommy Dionisia biktima ng snatcher sa Vegas

 Despite the tight security, Dionisia Pacquaio, the mother of MANNY PACQUAIO almost lost her earring to a snatcher in Vegas. Not only in the Philippines.

She was excited for the victory of her son and the reunion of the family including her estranged husband and her children.

Here is the news:

Dionisia Pacquiao’s diamond earrings were almost snatched from her in Las Vegas, Nevada where she flew for her son’s match.
“Kanina may naghabulot ng tenga ko. Napa-aray ako!” Mommy D revealed on “Showbiz Central,” Nov. 15.
What can never be robbed from her is the happiness she feels for Manny’s victory.
“Masaya ako talaga. Nagpapasalamat ako na nanalo siya. Ang daming taong nanood at nagpunta [sa laban ni Manny],” she said.
Manny, in another interview, admitted that Miguel Cotto is a tough opponent.
“Mahirap na kalaban. Si Cotto isang talo lang siya. Magaling siya, malakas din!” said he.
The People’s Champ is delighted that his father, Rosalio Pacquiao, flew to the US to witness his fight.
“Matagal na niyang gustong manood. Ngayon lang niya nakuha ‘yung visa at na-award ‘yung passport,” he related.
Manny is scheduled to return home on Nov. 20 to resume shooting for his Metro Manila Film Fest entry, “Wapakman.”

“Karangalan natin ‘tong mga Pilipino na magkaroon ng magandang record sa larangan ng boxing from the Philippines. Thank you sa mahal na Panginoon sa binagay niyang biyaya at lakas. Maraming salamat sa inyong suporta,” he said.


Patama kay Kris Aquino ni Ruffa Gutierrez?

 Kanino pa nga ba patama ang pakiusap ni Ruffa Gutierrez kung hindi kay Kris Aquino na siyang nagrereto sa kaniya sa kabibiyudong anak ni JeJomar Binay ang alkalde ng Makati. 

Sa pagkakataong ito, sang-ayon ako kay Ruffa sa pagiging insensitibo na kailangang idamay ang pulitikong kamamatay lang ang asawa. Isa pa, nakakahiya naman sa girl friend ni Noynoy na si Shalani na nirereto pa ni Kris ang kanyang kapatid.

Ruffa Gutierrez has appealed to people especially the entertainment press to stop insinuating that she has a relationship with some politicians, especially presidential contender Sen. Noynoy Aquino and Makati Councilor Jun-Jun Binay.
There had been rumors linking her to them and which the beauty queen actress considers unfair and baseless, especially with Sen. Aquino who is into a relationship with a lady councilor.
As to Councilor Jun-Jun Binay, Ruffa appealed more strongly, “please, no more teasing. The slightest insinuation that there is something going on between us is not nice at all. It’s not only disrespectful to the memory of his dear departed wife, but it’s not true at all,” the said.”I’ve only met him once and spoken just a few words with him when I went to register as a voter in Makati.
Ruffa related that a few days ago, coming from a shooting for the “Shake, Rattle & Roll” episode “Ukay-Ukay” she brought her daughter Lorin to school and along the way, she asked the girl who her favorite classmates are. Lorin mentioned a few names and then when she heard Lorin say “she died,” a drowsy and stunned Ruffa drew to attention.


Hermes Bag for Angelica Panganiban

Wow Suwerte naman ni Angelica Panganiban kay Derek Ramsay. Ang mamamahal ng regalo niya sa kaniyang girl friend.

After giving girlfriend Angelica Panganiban a Mini Cooper for an anniversary gift, Derek Ramsay now follows up with another "dream come true" present.

At Angelica's surprise birthday party organized by her close friends and some relatives, Derek surprised the actress by giving her an orange Hermes bag -- apparently one of the celebrant's most ardent wish.

So, how did Derek figure out what she wanted to receive for her birthday?

According to Angelica, it was she who unwittingly informed the actor.

"Nagtatanong na siya, matagal na, kung ano ang gusto kong gift."

Derek, who connived with their friends to keep it a secret until the last minute, had a ready script which he acted out at the party venue.

Angelica said: "Sa party, sabi niya 'Ganda ng bag mo, ha!' kasi nga may dala akong bag. [Tapos] sabi niya, 'Mas maganda 'yung dala kong bag!' [and then] pinakita niya sa akin.

“Inaasar pa nga nila ako na binebenta sa akin 'yong bag. Tapos naiyak na ako. Happy ako talaga," an overjoyed Angelica shared.

 Marian Rivera's film entry for Metro Manila was shelved. So many reasons were given by they are lame excuse.
Is it because Marian Rivera's past movies were not money makers? 

Ito ang balita.

Ikinalungkot ni Marian Rivera na hindi na matutuloy ang pagbibidahan niyang pelikula na Nieves, na entry sana ng Regal Entertainment sa Metro Manila Film Festival sa Disyembre. Pansamantalang naisantabi ang pelikula dahil sa reported health problems ng direktor nito na si Mike Tuviera.

Ayon kay Marian, nalungkot siya talaga dahil ngayon lang siya mawawalan ng entry sa taunang film festival.



Governor Vilma Santos-Recto is not celebrating her birthday with a lavish party this year. She is donating her party budget to the victims of the typhoons which had decastated the country.

This is the excerpt of the news: 

BATANGAS CITY — In lieu of the expected lavish birthday bash on November 3, Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto will instead donate her party budget to the victims of the recent typhoons in the province.
It was learned that a Mass will be held at the Provincial Capitol for a very simple but meaningful celebration where attendees are encouraged to give something to share such as relief goods, medicines or even cash assistance to the victims where some of them are still in deplorable conditions.
“This is the time to set aside our personal pleasure in order to do something that is noble and will bring comfort and joy to our dear kababayans who suffered so much from the fury of typhoons ‘Ondoy’ and ‘Pepeng,’” Santos-Recto said.



 How many times did they plan to separate? Cesar Montano had denied that they were quarelling while Sunsh
Actor Cesar Montano has denied that his marriage with Sunshine Cruz is on the rocks. Is this a publicity stunt or what?

Here is the excerpt of the news:

“Kami ni Sunshine, getting stronger and stronger by the day,” Cesar said on “Showbiz News Ngayon” recently. The two have been seen together in various events, including at a relief good drive.  
Cesar said he has plans to have a fourth baby with his beautiful wife.
“Ako, opo, araw-araw, may balak.. ‘Yung asawa ko lang ang walang araw-araw na balak. Pinagbabalakan ko siya palagi…baby boy, yes!” he said in jest.
However, Sunshine gave vague answers to questions about her relationship with Cesar. 
“I don’t want to say anything. Kung ano lang ang nakikita n’yo, it’s better na kayo na lang ang makakita,” she said.
She is clueless if her husband is planning to renew their wedding vows in a ceremony.


Ruffa cried because of annulment or because of closing of show?

Ruffa Gutierrez who is not very good in truth department denied that she shed tears because of the cancellation of her daily morning show. She cited the annullment of her marriage to Yilmaz as the reason.

Here is the news:

One of the most glamorous and beautiful women in the local entertainment scene, Ruffa Gutierrez couldn’t help but cry on live TV during the last taping day of her daily morning show with Comedy Concert Queen Ai Ai delas Alas called “Ruffa and Ai.”

The tears fell not because she became jobless. She cried because she imagined how it would feel when she receives her annulment papers and is finally freed from her marriage in a few months time. Soul Siren Nina’s performance during their last episode reduced her even more to tears, according to Ruffa.

“I became sentimental because Nina was singing. And I cried because I told myself that it doesn’t mean that when you’re annulled you failed. Maybe it is a failure in a sense but annulment happens for different reasons,” sighed the actress at the set of her new film under Regal Films entitled “Ukay Ukay” which is part of the horror trilogy in “Shake rattle and Roll XI.”

What helped in conjuring the image of being annulled are the stories she heard from showbiz colleagues who recently gut annulled from their marriage.



 Pag nagkataon, dalawang anak ni Pilita ang hiwalay sa mga asawa nila. Isa si Monching na hiwalay kay Lotlot at ikalawa ay si Jackie Blanco na natsitismis na may problema sa asawang si Ricky Davao.

Jackie Lou-Ricky marriage on the rocks?
Singer Pilita Corales confessed that she has hunches about the “on-the-rocks” marriage of her daughter Jackie Lou Blanco to husband Ricky Davao.
“If there is any problem, they should decide already. Kung wala na talaga siguro, better for them to live their own lives,” she said.
Jackie Lou admitted that she and her husband go through tough times but they are working on it.
“Sometimes we’re okay, sometimes we’re not okay. I learned from my mom that if there’s problem, you don’t leave the house [because] if you physically separate yourself from the spouse, you may get used to it,” said she.


Famas Awardees for the 57th Famas Awards 2009

Heart Evangelista won over her co-nominees  as Best Actress for the 57th FAMAS`Award given in October 18th,

Other nominees were:
Sharon Cuneta, Caregiver; Anne Curtis for Baler; Dawn Zulueta for Magkaibigan; Judy Ann Santos for Ploning and Melissa Mendez for Kalakal.

Here is the complete report on the winners:

Actress Heart Evangelista edged out Megastar Sharon Cuneta in winning the Best Actress trophy at the 57th Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences (FAMAS) Gabi ng Parangal ceremonies held at PAGCOR Grand Theatre on Oct. 18.
Evangelista won for her role as a teacher in a remote school in the Mountain Province in the digital film, “Ay, Ayeng.” Her triumph in the category is a sort of vindication for the film since it was virtually snubbed by the Manila audience when it was shown here, despite it being screened in Hawaii and Berlin.
Still, the victory came as a surprise to some, considering that “Caregiver” not only received critical acclaim but commercial success. Plus, “Caregiver” was one of 2008’s most-awaited films because it served as Cuneta’s comeback vehicle after four years of absence from the big screen.   
The other nominees in the FAMAS Best Actress category this year were Anne Curtis (for “Baler”), Dawn Zulueta (“Magkaibigan”), Judy Ann Santos (“Ploning”) and Melissa Mendez (“Kalakal”).
Likewise, Allen Dizon romped away with the FAMAS Best Actor trophy by putting one over the more popular actors Aga Muhlach, Jericho Rosales and Richard Gutierrez in his category. Dizon did so by playing the role of a pimp in his self-produced film, “Paupahan.”
When released, the film got a Grade "B" from the Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB) and was classified as “R-13 without cuts” by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) of the Philippines.
It can be recalled that Dizon bankrolled “Paupahan” while he was undergoing a financial crisis due to his then-floundering car trading business.
Master Showman German Moreno stood tall in the company of Emilio Garcia, John Manalo, Philip Salvador, Bojong Fernandez and Eddie Gutierrez in the Best Supporting Actor category for playing a serious gay role in “Paupahan.”
Although already a legendary TV host and talent discoverer, German’s last big role prior to “Paupahan” was in the 1996 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, “Payaso.”
Further, Moreno’s nomination for “Paupahan” was only his second time in his decades-long career. The first was in 1968 for the movie “Artista Ang Aking Asawa” which starred Philippine King of Comedy Dolphy.
The Best Supporting Actress trophy went to Snooky Serna, again, for “Paupahan.” It was another win for the actress for the same role and movie following the one at the 25th Star Awards for Movies.
The FAMAS Best Picture award was bestowed on the film, “Baler,” which was inspired by the siege of the town of Baler by Filipino revolutionaries in the 1800s. The film, a Metro Manila Film Festival entry in 2008, starred Anne Curtis and Jericho Rosales.
The 57th FAMAS Presidential Award was given to film director Carlo J. Caparas and his wife, film producer Donna Villa.   
Other winners of special awards that night were Vilma Santos (“Circle of Excellence Award”); Bong Revilla (“Fernando Poe Jr Memorial Award”); Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, Kris Bernal and Aljur Abrenica (“German Moreno Achievement Award”); Sarah Geronimo (“Golden Artist Award”) and Roland Dantes (“Posthumous Award”).

Rosanna Roces interview about the Revillas was censored

 Rosanna Roces who does not hide her contempt for the Revilla Family spewed libelous statements against Senator Bong Revilla, his wife Lani nd his son Jolo Revilla.

This is the news:

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB ) disapproved the airing of Rosanna “Osang” Roces's taped interview on “Juicy,” a showbiz-oriented talk show aired on TV5.
The interview which was supposed to have aired on Oct. 12, was not given the ‘go’ signal by the MTRCB because of the alleged "libelous" statements made by Rosanna against Sen. Bong Revilla, his wife Lani Mercado and their son, Jolo Revilla.
A source told Manila Bulletin Entertainment Online that Osang's catty remarks were deemed by the ratings board as "not fit for viewing".
In the interview, Rosanna was said to have spewed venom on the three Revilla's and hissed at them like she never did before.
The management and staff of “Juicy” have anticipated the disapproval and had, in fact, readied  other segments to replace the controversial taped interview.
Rosanna Roces has been openly speaking about her ill feelings toward the Revillas, going as far as calling them names on her Facebook account. Her tirades began shortly after Jolo "borrowed" his son Gabriel from Rosanna's daughter, Grace Adriano, without Osang’s consent.
The issue got so out of hand, that even Jolo's rumored girlfriend, Lovi Poe, was dragged into the hullabaloo. Osang reportedly threatened to drag and pull Lovi's hair if and when she sees her. The two were then working together on “Lipgloss,” a weekly teen show on TV 5.
Lovi refused to comment on her rumored rift with the former sexy actress. Lani Mercado also dismissed the issue as nondescript.

Sunshine no longer shines as she was replaced by Nadia Samonte

 News was she was eased out due to the problems she was causing the producter of Tinik sa Dibdib. According to the mother, it was health issue but not necessarily pregnancy problem which she said hounded her daughter ever since.

Here is the news:

Actress Nadine Samonte will replace Sunshine Dizon in “Tinik Sa Dibdib” after the latter backed out from the afternoon TV soap which premiered recently.
Sunshine had already appeared in a few “Tinik” episodes since it began airing Sept. 28. Her role, once essayed by Superstar Nora Aunor, is that of a long suffering daughter who tries to please her abusive family.
Nadine, who will arrive from her short vacation in Germany on Oct. 17, has already been told about her replacing Sunshine, says a source to Manila Bulletin Entertainment Online.
With this development, Nadine will now have two shows [the other is “Darna”] on GMA-7.
The decision to replace Sunshine came about after the actress and her mother Dorothy Laforteza talked to GMA-7 executives. In a closed-door meeting, the mother and daughter reportedly told the network bosses that Sunshine could no longer fulfill her duties for the show.
Sunshine was reportedly complaining of long work hours while doing “Tinik Sa Dibdib.” She told a reporter that working for 20 hours per taping day is too tedious a task for her.
A source also told Manila Bulletin Entertainment Online that Sunshine denied accusations that she's in that interesting stage now, the reason why she wants to go on vacation in the U.S.

No, I'm not [pregnant], she reportedly said.
The actress was wheeled off to and spent a day at a hospital recently after suffering from a severe migraine attack.
Coincidentally, Sunshine also backed out from the fifth edition of “Starstruck” which will begin airing next month. The actress was supposed to sit as a juror in the reality-based artista search.


Lorna Tolentino nililigawan ni Willie Revillame

Biruan man o pasaringan, ang sikreto ni Williw Revillame at ni Ruffa Gutierrez ay nabubuking.

Ito ang balita.

Tit for tat: Ruffa, Willie squeal on each other
October 3, 2009, 8:03pm
TV host-actress Ruffa Gutierrez may have just let the cat out of the bag on rumors linking TV host-comedian Willie Revillame to dramatic actress Lorna Tolentino.
In her guesting in “Wowowee” on Oct. 3, Ruffa chided Willie for courting so many girls. She revealed that “The Buzz” co-host Kris Aquino told her so.
Ruffa then inadvertently squealed that Willie was sending Lorna flowers and food.
Caught off guard, Willie yacked back, saying that she (Ruffa) once dated John Lloyd Cruz using his (Willie’s) yacht.
"O, 'di ba, nanghiram sa akin si Meryll (Soriano) ng yate ko. Then sabi ni Tita Annabelle (Rama, Ruffa’s mother), 'Dong, nasaan ang yate mo noong Sabado?’ Pumunta yata kayo ng Corregidor noon, eh…" Willie said.
"Hoy, grabe ka! Kasama ko si Meagan Young noon. Meagan, halika nga rito," Ruffa protested and as if asking her “Betty La Fea” co-star to defend her.
Turning serious, Willie explained that he’s in the process of searching for love.
"Siyempre, hinahanap ko, eh. Gano'n naman, hinahanap mo kung sino ang gusto mong makasama sa buhay. Ikaw naman din (ay) ganoon, 'di ba?" Willie said.
"Hindi, ayoko na. Okay na akong ganito ako," Ruffa retorted in seeming resignation.
"Kung sakaling nanood si John Lloyd, ano ang gusto mong sabihin?" Willie teased Ruffa.
"Ikaw grabe ka, patay na nga (ang issue), 'no!" Ruffa squeaked, feigning embarrassment.
She then rejoined, “Tita Malou is watching, Tita Cory is watching—‘Hello!’" in what seemed to be a feeble attempt to evade the issue involving her and John Lloyd.
Ruffa proceeded to give Willie her advice.
"Ang kailangan mong ligawan, si Tita Lolit Solis..... para maging boto sa iyo. Bigyan mo lagi ng cash."
To which Willie quickly rebutted: "Hindi totoo 'yon. Tita Lorna, oh. Ha! Ha! Ha! 'Wag n'yo akong gamitin sa ganyan, ha? Para mapag-usapan."
"Really? Old news na 'yon, ito ang mas fresh---" Ruffa started.

"---totoo 'yon, pumunta kayo sa hotel na doon ako nag-stay, Beverly sa Peninsula. Sabi ng mga Filipino staff....." Willie butted in, not wanting to give Ruffa the chance to drop the bomb.
"Alam mo, sabihin ko na 'yong talent ko. But you know, meron akong mild bronchitis, eh, kaya kailangang may proxy ako. Kaya tatawagin ko sina Lorin at si Venice---" Ruffa continued, scandalized but still seemingly enjoying the moment.
"---eto, may kakausap sa iyo," Willie cut in.
"Rofa, Rofa," Pokwang comes on cam while impersonating Annabelle.
"O, mommy, ano'ng balita," asked Ruffa, riding on the joke.
"Totoo naman talaga ang sinabi ni Willie. Nagpunta kayo ng Corregidor, sinama n'yo ako, tapos, 'Day, hindi n'yo na ako binalikan doon,” continued Pokwang in her Annabelle accent.
"At saka 'yong mga binibigay ni Willie na bulaklak, hindi para sa iyo 'yon, para sa akin 'iyon. Bumibili siya ang alahas, may nililigawan siya….
"Ano ang masasabi n'yo, tanggap n'yo na ba siya?" Willie asked Pokwang as Annabelle.
"Alam mo Willie, okay naman sa akin ang lovelife ni Rofa."
"Wala nga akong love life, 'no!" Ruffa insisted then hastily changed the topic.
Ruffa was one of the “Wowowee” celebrity contestants that day. She competed with fellow beauty queen Maggie Wilson in the Willie of Fortune segment. The other contestants then were Paw Diaz, Melissa Ricks.
For a few months now, Willie has been rumored to be courting Lorna. A tab report said that the actress just shrugged off the issue between her and the TV host when she was asked about it.


Gimmick o Totoo

Usap-usapan pa rin ang pagsgip ni Richard Gutierrez ky Cristine Reyes na nalathala na rin sa New York Times.
na ang pagkakasulat ay parang galing sa script ng pelikula.

Gutierrez, a close friend and Reyes' co-star in an upcoming movie, heard of her plight, borrowed an army speedboat and went to the rescue.
''We couldn't go fast because of the strong currents and floating cars,'' Gutierrez told GMA TV Network on Monday.
Reaching Reyes' house, he struggled to tie the boat to a tree amid the churning waters, climbed into her house and eventually whisked her to safety.

Pero marami sa mga nagbabasa sa PEP  
ang sumulat na ang totoong nagligtas kay Cristine Reyes ay ang mga Rescue Team ng militry dahil ang speedboat na ginamit ng actor ay nasira.

an AM station announced again that CR is begging for help dahil lamig na lamig na daw sila at walang makain... may mga bata pa daw silang kasama... around 3pm the same station announced again, paging the rescuers to help CR and her family.. and after a few hours the announcer announced that the family was already saved... pero si cristine daw is naiwan??? the announcer asked, bakit naiwan si CR??? si CR yung humihingi ng tulong dahil gutom na gutom na daw sya at nanlalamig na pero bakit hindi pa sya sumabay sa family nya na na-rescue??? to think na iisa lang naman sya at hindi naman siguro kalabisan sa rescue vehicle kung sasama sya dun...
Naisulat pa na una nang naligtas ang mga kasamahan ni Cristine pero nagpaiwan pa ito para hintayin ang kaniyang bayani. Ohoy.


Willie Revillame's show in Lake Tahoe a success

 While he is being bombarded with negative news in the Philippines, Willie Revillame was well accepted in the Lake Tahoe where Wowowee show entertained thousands of Filipinos last Labor Day.

Here is the report from Manila Bulletin:

Anyway, the Lake Tahoe “Wowowee” show started out with dance numbers rendered by local dance groups. After that, Willie wearing Bench shirts (green over fuschia) came out on stage to sing his signature songs. He was joined by Pokwang, Mariel Rodriguez and all the dancers (including Luningning, Saicy and the other “Wowowee” dancers). By the way, also with Willie’s 36-member entourage were Edgar Mortiz, creative director of the show, Bentong and Lito Camo, who composed all the songs in Willie’s album under Universal Records. Lito sang a few songs during the show. Song numbers were also rendered by Pokwang, Anne Curtis and Charice Pempengco who will be joining David Foster’s US concert tour that’s why she’ll be away three months.
There were 20 who were chosen from the audience for the “Bigaten” portion with Pokwang and Mariel in change of course. Cash prizes were given out to the participants, and the winner was awarded $1,500. This is always a happy segment of “Wowowee.”
But the audience got emotional when a mother of a cancer-stricken girl shared her touching story. Annabelle Jones said her 13-year-old daughter Yanie was diagnosed with brain cancer and has since been undergoing chemotherapy. Annabelle is a nurse but she had to stop working in order to take care of her daughter, she said. She described her American husband, Bernie as “the greatest guy in the world, he is my hero, and who I would marry over and over again if needed.” Bernie petitioned her five children in the Philippines and they are now with them in America.


Cogie Domingo and Rachel Tiongson

 Cogie Domingo's father denied that his son Cogie Domingo had a romantic relationship with the common-law wife of Luis Chavit Singson, Rachel Che Tiongson

From PEP:

He said, "Cogie has the highest respect for Governor Luis 'Chavit' Singson. He will not and did not willfully cause any damage to the reputation of this high government official—to tarnish his public image. He personally knows Rachel Tiongson. He was introduced by common friends who he frequently went out with in the course of his professional and personal activities. Che Tiongson was introduced to him, not as a woman who was already committed but as a respectable person and certainly not as the wife or live-in partner of Governor Singson.

His son by the way is back from the United States.


Fishball or Fishbowl

Why do people give  big fuss on the statement of Noynoy Aquino about his love life which he compared to fish bowl as discussed in oublic by his sister Kris Aquino, The reporter must have misquoted him nd typed fishball instead of fish bowl. Aquarium na lang kaseh.

Here is the news:

While he was comfortable talking about politics, Aquino wants to keep his love life private.

He said he already asked his youngest sister and popular TV host Kris not discuss his love life in public.

"I talked to my sister and I did ask her that's the part of my life that I want to be private as it can't develop in the public like in a fishball. I think she understood it...She texted me and apologized," said the senator.

After the article came out, some bloggers copy-pasted Noynoy's quote and made it a topic in their blogs.

What caught the bloggers'—and probably many other—attention was the word "fishball" in Noynoy's quote. While the word may sound okay when spoken, it doesn't seem right when read. "Fishball," as we all know, is a popular street food.


DENNIS TRILLO at ang Trahedya

 Bakit namang kailangang gamitin pa sa press release ang trahedya ng isang kaibigan para lang may maisulat tungkol sa artista kagaya nang nangyari kay Dennis Trillo.

Ito ng balita.

 Walang dapat sisihin sa nangyari sa kaibigan ni
Dennis Trillo
na nalunod sa Boracay noong Miyerkules.
Aksidente ang nangyari. Siguro oras na talaga niya at ang pagkalunod ang paraan ng kanyang pagkamatay.Hindi dapat ma-guilty si Dennis dahil ginawa niya ang lahat para mailigtas ang kanyang kaibigan. Talagang traumatic ang aksidente para kay Dennis lalupa’t na-witness niya ang buong pangyayari.agdasal na lang niya ang kapayapaan ng kaluluwa ng kanyang friend.


Kris Aquino, gagastusan ang kasal ni Noynoy

Bawa't pronuncements ni Kris Aquino ay insulto sa kaniyang kapatid. Ganoon ba ka-poor si Noynoy para hindi maka-afford na gastusan ang kasal niya. O gusto na naman niyang sabihin na pag gusto niya ang babae. Someone should tell Kris, she is not his mother.

Ito ang balita:

Hindi naman ako makapaniwalang hindi makakayang gastusan ni Sen. Noynoy Aquino ang sarili niyang kasal. Napanood ko yung interview ni Kris sa TV na kung saan ay sinasabi niyang payag na siyang mag-asawa ang kanyang kuya at puwede rin niyang gastusan ito. Unlike before na hindi lamang siya nagparamdam ng pagtutol dito kundi maging ang kanyang panganay na si Joshua.


Willie Revillame's show stopped

 Talaga yatang hinahbol ng malas si Willie Revillame. Kahit sa US ay natigil ang kaniyang show dahil sa fire hazard ang firework. Bakit kasi may fireworks?

Ito ang balita:

For safety measures, Willie Revillame's show at Harrahs and Harveys Outdoor Arena in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, last September 6 was abruptly stopped.
"We have to (stop the show) because of the fireworks. Baka nga naman may tamaan 'yong apoy. We have to follow the rules here in Lake Tahoe. Maganda naman 'yon," Willie explained on “Showbiz News Ngayon” September 8.


MO TWISTER apologizes to RUFA MAE

I asked the question about the basis of MO TWISTER' dare to RUFA MAE QUINTO about her supposed to be the boyfriend who gifted her with a house in California.

Ito ang balita:

Kahapon, sinabi ng iba pang co-hosts ng Showbiz Central, sa pangunguna ni John "Sweet" Lapus, na kung mapapansin ay wala na naman si Rufa Mae sa show nila. Diniretso niya ng tanong si Mo kung siya na naman daw ba ang dahilan kung kaya't absent si Rufa Mae?

Ayon kay Mo, "First, I wanna say sorry kay Rufa Mae. Kasi, kasalanan ko talaga 'to. This was an Internet rumor na sinulat ko sa aking Twitter, which is parang blog.


And the name is


Were the hints given by RUFA MAE the basis of Mo Twister's "joke" on his co-host about her secret fiance or was he really just joking?

Here is the news:

RUFA MAE Quinto wonders why DJ Mo Twister keeps twisting stories about her. At the height of the Hayden Kho sex video scandal, Mo dragged P-chi into the mess. Now here he goes again saying in his Twitter account that he believes P-chi is engaged to presidential son Mikey Arroyo who’s very much married.

“We are professionals. He should practice courtesy since we co-host ‘Showbiz Central’,” P-chi says. “I find it stupid to the point of being funny.”

Based on my many girl talks with P-chi, I know that she gives her all when she falls for someone. Why will she settle for a married man who can’t reciprocate her full emotional investment? Besides, with all the single men who want P-chi, she needs no guy who’s already spoken for.

In the meantime, the name of the boyfriend remains a secret.


Chavit Singson versus Che Tiongson

Siguro naman by this time, alam na ng lahat na mayroon daw kaugnayan noon si Cogie Domingo kay Che Tiongson ang common-law wife ni Chavit Singson na nabalitang binugbog
dahil sa nahuling nagtataksil na naman kasama ang isang nabalitang taga ABS-CBN.

Ito ang balita:

Hindi naman pala ex-broadcaster sa ABS-CBN ang mhin na nakarelasyon ng live-in partner ni Papa Chavit Singson.


Mo Twister, dinare si Ruffa Mae Quinto


Ang tapang ni Mo Twister na "biruin" si Ruffa Mae Quinto na ang boyfriend nito ay si Mikey Arroyo.

Totoo kaya?

Ito ang balita.

Nagkakainitan na naman pala sina Rufa Mae Quinto at Mo Twister dahil sa isinulat nito sa kanyang Twitter account na naniniwala siya na engaged si Rufa Mae kay Mikey Arroyo.
Na-hurt si Rufa Mae dahil naghamon pa raw ng pustahan si DJ Mo. Ang tanong, bakit nasabi o naisulat ni Mo na engaged si Rufa Mae kay Mikey? May ebidensiya ba siya?
Hindi ba naisip ni Mo na imposibleng magkaroon ng engagement ang dalawa dahil pamilyadong lalake si Mikey?
Paano kung mag-react si Angela, ang better-half ni Mikey? Ready ba si Mo na ipatawag siya sa Malacañang para i-justify niya ang kanyang ikinalat na balita?
Abangan natin bukas ang Showbiz Central. Tingnan natin kung magpapansinan sina Rufa Mae at Mo. Dati nang dinededma ni Rufa Mae si Mo dahil palagi raw siyang pinaglalaruan ng kanyang co-host.


Hayden Kho Suspended by Philippine Medical Association

Hayden Kho who was involved with the video scandal with Katrin Halili and Maricar Reyes was suspended by the Philippine Medical Association for a year.

Docs’ group suspends Hayden Kho

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Medical Association (PMA) has suspended Dr. Hayden Kho Jr. for a year for “conduct offensive to the profession,” his lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer Thursday.

In an interview during the launching of White Ribbon Day – a campaign launched by the United Nations Development Fund for Women (Unifem) to prevent violence against women – Kapunan said she and Kho learned about the group’s decision on Wednesday.


Kristine Hermosa's camp denied she is playing prima donna

This is stale news already...about Kristine Hermosa's demands in the shooting of teleserye, Dahil sa may Isang Ikaw".

Why did the denial come very late?

Here is the news:

No, it’s not true!”

This is how Kristine Hermosa’s Star Magic handler Alan Real reacted to questions regarding his ward’s alleged ‘primadonna behavior’ on the set of “Dahil May Isang Ikaw.”

“Everything is going smoothly (with the shooting for the series). We don’t have problems at all, not that we heard of anything… specially something that involves Kristine,” Real said.

Recent reports said that Hermosa almost always causes “delays” if not outright cancellation of scheduled shooting dates due to her many demands and tantrums.

“Unlikely. That’s actually funny. She is not like that, at all. She is not one to throw tantrums just so she could have her way,” Real said.

Hermosa also reportedly asked for considerations similar to those being given to veteran star, Lorna Tolentino, including having a “shortened shooting schedule.”

This, according to talks, is making ABS-CBN big wigs think if they should just replace Kristine with Bea in the series to spare themselves from more headaches.

“She doesn’t have to ask for anything at all because everything is in the contract to begin with. She wouldn’t have signed up for the show if she will have problems with the schedule and everything,” Real said.

So, Bea Alonzo is not replacing Kristine in the series?

“That’s absurd. Untrue.”

"Dahil May Isang Ikaw" is an ABS-CBN production that pairs Hermosa anew with long-time screen partner Jericho Rosales.


Josh Aquino,meron ng hypertension

I worried about Josh, the elder son of Kris Aquino to Philipp Salvador, when I learned that at age 14, he weighs more thn 200 lbs. Ms mats pa siy kay Noynoy Aquino. What I know is that family doctor advises parents to watch the diet of their children.

Ito ang balita.

Hindi ako nagulat nang sabihin ni Kris Aquino sa SNN na dadalhin niya ang anak na si Josh sa cardiologist dahil tumataas ang dugo ng bagets.

Dapat mag-diet si Joshua dahil overweight siya. Fourteen years old pa lang siya pero may hypertension na.


Kasong Wilma Galvante versus Annabelle Rama walang urungan

Pramis ha, wala nang urungan talaga.

Ito ang balita:

Magtutuluy-tuloy na sa korte ang P7-million damage suit na isinampa ng SVP for Entertainment TV ng GMA-7 na si Wilma Galvante laban sa talent manager na si Annabelle Rama. Ito ay matapos na hindi nagkaayos ang dalawang kampo sa ginanap na mediation hearing sa Quezon City Hall of Justice noong Biyernes, August 28.

Matatandaang isinampa ni Galvante ang civil case laban kay Rama noong March 17 sa Quezon City Regional Trial Court.

Tahimik na nagsampa ng kaso si Ms. Wilma sa Quezon City Regional Trial Court noong March 17. Sa kanyang 40-pages civil complaint, isinalaysay ng GMA executive ang mga pananakot diumano ni Annabelle sa kanya sa pamamagitan ng media interviews at text messages.

Hiniling ni Ms. Wilma sa korte na pigilan si Annabelle Rama sa pananakot sa kanya at maglabas ng restraining order para hindi makalapit si Rama, within 50 meters, alang-alang sa kaligtasan niya.

Mukhng tumhimik si Annabelle Rama. Ayaw makasuhan ulit?


Ruffa Gutierrez explained about her crying issue

Last week, Ruffa Gutierrez feigned illness after shedding tears while talking to someone on her cell phone. She remarked that only a true love can make her cry which made the media speculted that it was about John Lloyd Cruz.

Ruffa explained that it was her ex-husband who caused her to cry. Ows?

Here is the news:

When TV host-actress Ruffa Gutierrez was observed all red-eyed from crying on the set of her show “Ruffa and Ai” last week, not a few tongues wagged in trying to guess who might have caused her crying fit.

According to reports, Ruffa was seen crying while talking to an unidentified person on her mobile just as she emerged from her dressing room.

When coaxed for an explanation, Ruffa merely said she was sick “having a cold and cough, have been sneezing…[maybe] allergies.”

Eventually, Ruffa revealed on “The Buzz” the real reason behind the tears.

According to the former beauty queen, she cried because her kids had been asking for their daddy—Turkish millionaire Yilmaz Bektaz.

“My kids are asking…looking for their dad…asking me when he will visit them so, for me, you know even if Yilmaz and I are over—it’s been two and a half years—for me, the pain is still there.

“You know, my kids are looking for him…It's family, it's very personal…so, I really don’t want to talk about it and to let the world to know but… I don’t want the [crying] issue to be discussed about further.”

Ruffa added that it was her daughter, Venice—who will celebrate her birthday on Sept. 11-- who had been asking for her “Baba” [Venice’s term of endearment for Yilmaz].

“Her birthday is coming up so, she was telling me, 'Mommy, when is Baba gonna come and visit us?’ And I just keep telling her, 'Well, maybe soon… you know, he's working.'

“Then she said. 'How soon? Maybe in September?' and I said, 'Yeah, that's next month already. Maybe, I'll ask Baba. Maybe he'll come and visit you.'”


Ruffa Mae Quinto said the house is hers

Celebrities oftentimes boast for things that people can not verify because it is not within reach of the local news media.

Recently, Ruffa Mae Quinto said that politician gifted her with a house in the USA.
Later, she amended her pronuncements that she shared in the payment and the politician boyfriend is said to be a childhood friend who belongs to the elite family in the Philippines. We all know that she did not come from the high-end neighborhood so how can she be a childhood friend?

In the SNN, another bad news for her news refuted her claim.

Sexy comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto pooh-poohed a report about her not owning the house she claimed to have bought in the U.S.

A certain Joseph Canlas sent an e–mail message to “Showbiz News Ngayon” blasting Rufa Mae’s claim that she owns a single detached townhouse in the US worth P30 million.

The house, Canlas claims, belongs to a certain Paul Hizon and that Rufa Mae was just a guest when she went there recently.

“Kung kailangan ko ipakita ang papeles…,” an obviously pissed off Rufa Mae began in an “SNN” interview aired Aug. 27.

“Hindi ko naman siya [Canlas] kilala, eh. Sa totoo lang, madali namang mag-imbento. [At kung] maniwala [man] sila o hindi, okay lang naman, ‘di ba?.. Ang importante meron [akong bahay dun] at ang friends ko, welcome doon mag-stay. May guest room [at] walang nakatira doon,” she said.

Later, Rufa Mae was no longer able to hold back her anger.

“Sa akin, nakakatawa lang po talaga ‘yan. Wala akong masabi. Kung sino man siya, ang kapal niya! Panindigan na lang niya kung ano ine-mail niya.”

The “SNN” interview also delved into Rufa Mae’s colorful love life. She admits she is already engaged to be married.

“Noong [month of] May pa,” the comedienne said. “I’m settling down, definitely.”

In a previous interview, Rufa Mae denied that her boyfriend is a politician. The guy, she said, is somebody she knew when she was still in her teens. She calls him her “soul mate”.


Ara Mina denied the news about Manny Pacquiao

The news about Manny Pacquaio and Ara Mina took a back seat after Pacquiao's latest triumph in the boxing arena and the introduction of Mommy Dionisia in the showbiz world.

A few days ago news about the two being seen in a hotel was reported in the entertainment section of the dailies.

Ara Mina denied the allegations.

Multi-awarded actress Ara Mina is fed up with talks linking her to boxer Manny Pacquiao, the latest of which is their alleged tryst at a five-story hotel in Malate, Manila.

This is according to one of Ara’s publicists, Chuck Gomez, whom Manila Bulletin Online recently talked to.

Chuck quoted Ara as saying: “Enough, ayoko na!”

He added: “Hindi daw true [ang balita]. Meron na s’yang boyfriend na non-showbiz na in fairness ay pagkagwapo-gwapo. Masayang-masaya si Ara sa boyfriend n’ya. She has finally met someone who really loves and respects her. Kaya nga ayaw n’ya ng ganyang mga klaseng intriga dahil she respects her boyfriend and his family so much.”


John Lloyd Cruz- ayaw na ng gay role

Among the young stars, I believe that John Lloyd is following the footsteps of our best male actors like Christopher de Leon, Eddie Garcia, Bembol Roco and other multi-awarded veteran actors of the Philippine cinema.

In his new film with Vilma Santos, he is the gay partner of Luis Manzano, the son of Vilma Santos in real life.

This is the excerpt of the article where he explained why he does not want to play gay role anymore.

Prized actor John Lloyd Cruz categorically said that playing lover to Luis Manzano in Star Cinema’s “In My Life” is his first and last gay role.

“Bilang artista, di ba ang success mo ay nasusukat doon sa pag-iwas mo sa word na nalilimitahan ka? Kung gagawa ka ng isang bagay na nagawa mo na, medyo hindi yata ideal ‘yon sa trabaho namin,” he said during the “In My Life” presscon held Aug. 25.

“Ang ultimate dream ko is to portray different roles. Mas marami, mas maganda. [Kung] nagawa ko na ‘yong journey doing this kind of character, ibang journey naman sana ang gusto ko [sa susunod].”

A consummate actor, John Lloyd did his ‘homework’ to achieve an almost real-life portrayal of a gay lover in “In My Life.”

“Malaking parte ng preparation ‘yung cerebral,” he said. “S’yempre, you have to create a life, a character, a heart, for the character of Noel. So meron na siyang puso, so binubuo mo naman ‘yong pagkatao niya.”

Working with the Star for All Seasons is a win-win experience for John Lloyd.


Luis Manzano refused to answer questions about Angel Locsin

I admire Luis Manzano for not talking about his supposed break-up with Anel Locsin.

No matter how insistent the reporters were, he was not forced to divulge the problem he claimed he had with his girl friend.

He cotninued to evade the question by trying to direct the reporters to ask questions related to his incomong film with his mother, Vilma Santos and John Lloyd Cruz.

Rare are male celebrities who are quiest about their romantic relationships with co-stars.

Luis Manzano must have been taught well by his celebrity parents.

Excerpt of the article about Luis.

"You know, nakikita n'yo ako... kung anuman yung sa personal, sa personal na yun. Pero still, basically, ayokong... I'll be honest, I'd rather talk about the movie. I don't want to give false answers. I'd tell you straight up na hindi ko na pag-uusapan yung pinagdadaanan namin ni Angel. So, instead of mang-BS [bullshit] lang ako dito, paikut-ikutin ko ang kuwento, I'd tell everyone right now na I'd rather talk about the movie," iwas pa ring sagot ni Luis.

Dahil nga sa patuloy na pag-iwas ni Luis kaya direkta na siyang tinanong ng press kung sila pa ba ni Angel o hindi na?

"I don't need to answer. I don't need to," madiing pagtanggi ni Luis. "It was never a showbiz [issue] naman. Yung sa aming dalawa, it's very, very personal."
