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."

Vandolph, bumait na raw

Dolphy is at it again, defending his son from the allegation that he was involved in gun-toting during a traffic alterction.

Vandolph, the son of the King of Comedy, Dolphy to Alma Moreno who got hitched with governor early this year, was reported to have an argument with a man who cut him off in the traffic.

Here is the news:

Comedy King Dolphy defended his son Vandolph from a recent allegation that he was involved in a gun-toting incident due to a traffic altercation.

“Hindi totoo ‘yon. Unang-una, walang nagrereklamo. Ang tagal-tagal na niyan. Puro mali ang detalye. Naka-Ford daw, eh, hindi naman Ford [kundi] Montero and auto niya [Vandolph]. Wala [daw] plaka, eh, may plaka ‘yon. Kulay asul daw, eh, black naman ang kotse niya. May baril daw siya --bakit hindi sila magpakita ng ebidensiya?” said an obviously incensed Doplhy in an interview aired on "Showbiz News Ngayon" August 20.

According to a report, Vandolph got into an argument with a motorcycle-riding man who drove in front of his car to cut him off.

Vandolph allegedly chased the guy, challenged him to a fight and reportedly wielded an unlicensed gun.

Vandolph denied the accusation during Dr. Manny Calayan’s birthday party.

“Basta, ayoko munang magsalita,” Vandolph told an "SNN" reporter. "Lahat naman ng kaso na dawit ang pangalan ko, hinarap ko. Hindi ko nga alam kung sinong Vandolph ‘to [na tinutukoy nila]."

Dolphy believe the guy could have been Vandolph’s look-alike.

“Baka look-alike lang, ginamit lang ‘yong pangalan niya [Vandolph],” he said.

Dolphy expressed indignation over the person who wrote the "report."


Vicki Belo lumipad sa United States

Vicki Belo was able to fly to the United States amidst the watch-list order or was it a hold-order for the cosmetic surgeon due to the cases that she is entangled in.

According to Lolit Solis:

Natuloy kahapon ang pagpunta ni Dra. Victoria Belo sa Amerika, kesehodang may humarang sa kanyang biyahe noong Miyerkules.

Nakarating din sa akin ang balita na nakabantay raw sa international airport ang isang lawyer dahil inakala yata nito na makukunan ng mga TV camera ang pagkakabulilyaso ng US trip ni Mama Victoria.

Kung sinuman ang magaling na nagtawag sa media people, nabigo siya na malagay sa kahihiyan si Mama Victoria dahil hindi nagtagumpay ang kanyang balak na magkaroon ng TV exposure.


Gabby Concepcion is returning to the United States if

Gabby Concepcion said that he is returning to the United States if his showbiz career would not improve.

So far he said that his case with Rose Flaminiano is already closed which was denied by his former talent manager.

Early this year, he was released from his committment with GMA 7 so that he can make the movie in Star Cinema, his home network. His dream of having a movie with former wife Sharon Cuneta is far from realization because time and again, the megastar would not agree to such a project.

Here is the news:

MANILA, Philippines – Gabby Concepcion has been “released” by the film outfit of a television network from the movie contract he signed with the network in 2008, the actor announced recently.

Also, Gabby said, the court case his estranged talent manager Rose Flaminiano filed against him was now a “closed book.” He has signed a two-year contract with ABS-CBN, he told Inquirer Entertainment.

“I’m really grateful. The GMA 7 bosses... could have frozen my career but they decided to simply let me go,” he noted.

GMA 7 VP for Program Management Joey Abacan on Wednesday confirmed Gabby’s release. “No doors were closed. We can still embark on future projects,” he told Inquirer by phone.

Gabby’s contract with ABS-CBN will have him working on a movie by Star Cinema, for release in December 2009. He will also be seen in the drama series “Dahil May Isang Ikaw,” which premieres August 24.

Asked to comment on the controversy surrounding his relationship with Flaminiano, Gabby said: “I don’t publicize my [legal] victories against her. We all have to move on. Enough with the hurting.”

But Flaminiano said the P22-M damage suit she filed in September 2008 against Gabby was “ongoing.”

“I don't know what Gabby meant by ‘closed book.’ He was probably talking about our misunderstanding last year,” she said. “But neither of us wanted any of this to happen. Deep inside, mahal
namin ang isa’t isa. Napaglaruan lang kami ng mga pangyayari [we love each other. The situation played tricks on us]. I also want this nightmare to end.”

While he looks for a new manager, the actor
said, he has asked Dexter Licuanan, his legal counsel, to represent him in negotiations related to guest appearances and product endorsements.

Nothing definite

But the actor can’t say for sure if he’s staying in the country. “Nothing is definite right now,” he said. “I won’t compromise my family [wife Ginbee and their daughter] for anything. If show biz does not work for us, we’re going back to the US.”

It’s true, he said, that he nearly gave up much earlier. “Ayaw ko na ng intriga [I don’t like intrigues anymore]. You saw how I tried to mend my relationships here.”

As an actor, he said, he did not have any more goals. “Based on my experiences, it’s best to take one day at a time. ’Di ko na pipilitin kung hindi para sa akin [I will no longer force it if it isn’t meant for me].”

(Gabby stars with Lorna Tolentino in “Dahil May Isang Ikaw,” which premieres August 24.)

Marian Rivera, Maldita raw?

There had been gossips that Marian Rivera is maldita. Does the talent manager see to it that it does not come out to the press?

This is the news

Talks about Marian Rivera as a celebrity with an “attitude” is growing louder by the day.

The latest dish on Marian being a primadonna is her alleged disappointment over taping at a muddy location in Bulacan for "Darna."

Reportedly, Marian told a staff member, “Di ba sinabi ko sa inyo na ayaw ko nang maputik?”

So, what did the staff do to appease the complaining actress? He reportedly carried Marian to a mud-less place.

One time, too, still while taping for "Darna," Marian reportedly came in, wailing, “dumating na ang reyna na walang bulaklak sa tenga” which stunned those who heard the one-liner.

Some people speculated that Marian may have been referring to Carla Abellana who always has a flower in her ear for her role in the TV soap, "Rosalinda."

Story goes that in an event, Marian refused to share her dressing room with Carla because she wants the room all to herself.

Marian, who is part of the "Show Me The Manny" cast starring boxing champ Manny Pacquiao, is all praises for the boxing champ.

“Lahat kami dito masaya. Na-discover kong hindi pala siya (Manny) mahirap abutin. Super down to earth siya,” Marian said.


Luis Manzano at Angel Locsin, hiwalay na

Nobody is talking about the rumor that Angel Locsin and Luis Manzano are in a splitville.

It was reported that it had been two weeks that the two parted ways.

Ayon sa source, wala raw gustong magsalita sa dating mag-syota.

May sinabing rason ang isang source sa kanilang hiwalayan. Pero parang ang hirap paniwalaan. Really. So unbelievable. Hindi ako naniniwala.

Kung sabagay, sooner or later, lalabas din ang totoo. Wait na lang tayo hanggang maging ready sila na pag-usapan ang paghihiwalay nila na ikina-shock ng marami.


Willie Revillame explains his side

Willie Revillame knew it all along that he would be criticized...short to saying that his enemies were waiting for this to happen.

According to him:


"Tinitira na ako, di ba?" umpisa niya. "Hindi naman ako nakapag-offend nun, e, di ba? Alam ko titirahin na ako ng lahat. Iki-clear ko lang yun... Hindi ko naman 'pinagtatanggol ang sarili ko."

Kuwento niya, "Kasi ganito ang nangyari... Nung Monday [August 3], dumating ako dito [sa Wowowee studio]. Tumawag si Phoebe [Anievas, executive producer ng show]. 'Kuya, baka ma-preempt tayo, maggi-give way tayo.' Sabi ko, 'That's good. Sige, mag-give way tayo.' Tapos, biglang mamaya, 'Kuya, okey lang na mag-tape tayo for tomorrow, which is Tuesday.'

"So, Monday yung live; Tuesday and Wednesday, yung magiging taping namin. Pero kahapon [Wednesday] wala dahil preempted nga. Sabi ko, 'Good, para makakapagbakasyon tayo.'"

Patuloy niya, "So, maya-maya nag-tape na ako ng opening, 'Giling-Giling.' Tinape ko na lahat. So, from there, na-stop lang kami sa 'Willie of Fortune.' Bakit? Kasi magla-live na raw. So, nagulat na naman, 'Bakit magla-live na naman tayo?' E, yun daw ang order.

"Sige, nanonood ako dito [sa dressing room]. Napapalabas na kami. Tinape ko na yung unang portion, e. Ang unang portion, yung 'Giling-Gling' at saka 'Cash or Bukas.' So, nai-tape ko na. Yung 'Willie of Fortune,' wala pa. So, habang naonood ako sa [dressing] room ko, naggigiling-giling kami lahat, in-insert ang kabaong ni Tita Cory.

"Diyos ko! Tinawagan ko si Tita Linggit [Tan, Head of TV Production]. 'Ta Linggit, ano ba naman 'yan? Ang pangit. Ang pangit sa atin niyan. Nagluluksa, nagdadalamhati ang kasambayanan, and then makikita na nagsasaya tayo.'

"Tinanggal naman. So, wala. Okey na. Bumalik naman ako live na 'Willie of Fortune.' E, di masaya. I think yung pangalawang contestant, yung dalawa, sumasayaw yung babae, pinasok na naman [yung live footage]!Doon ako nag-react. Imagine, sinabi ko na, di ba?

"From then, ang sinabi ko, nilabas ko na naman. Sabi ko, 'Wala ba kayong pakiramdam?' So, sana prineempt na lang natin. Hindi na lang tayo inere. Yun ang totoong nangyari. In fairness naman sa ano, fault naman nila. Inamin naman nila sa akin, may mali sa traffic daw yun, e.

"My point is, kung napanood ninyo yung YouTube nung Monday, maayos naman yun. 'Ano ba naman kayo? Paano ako makakapagsaya kung makikita ko si Tita Cory nand'yan. Ang pangit tingnan,' sabi ko, di ba? Inalis na yun. Ang dami nang nag-ano. Siyempre, gagamitin na 'yan," paglalahad ni Willie, ang tinutukoy ay ang mga malimit tumiligsa sa kanya at sa Wowowee.


Kristine Hermosa is acting prima donna?

What is this news about Kristine Hermosa that she is acting like prima donna? Is she insecure with Lorna Tolentino? Does she want to enjoy the same privileges accorded to an awarding and veteran actress.

Here is the news:

Actress Kristine Hermosa is reportedly acting like a primmadonna on the set of her latest soap, "Dahil May Isang Ikaw," by asking for shortened work hours akin to her co-star Lorna Tolentino.

Lorna works only up to 10 p.m. as approved by the ABS-CBN management.

Kristine is also said to dislike taping at several locations for the soap.

Rumors abound that Kristine is thinking of not reporting to work until she is given the same privileges as Lorna's.

And although the production staff of "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" didn't agree to her demands, they still relayed them to ABS CBN management who promptly turned them down.

More, the ABS-CBN management reportedly threatened to sue Kristine if she does not report to work.

"Dahil May Isang Ikaw" reunites Kristine and Jericho six years after their last soap, "Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas."


Kris Aquino is havingthe parents' house renovated

Kris Qquino will be spending a fortune to demolish the house and rebuilt for her brother Noynoy who was reported to have inherited the house by deed of donation.

The bachelor brother of Kris Aquino is requesting two rooms only and a meeting room.

According to the interview of Kris Aquino in the Showbiz News Ngayon last August 10.
a bigger residence will be built to provide rooms for her two sons, Josh and Baby James.

Josh will also be needing playroom and tutorial room and a pool.

The arrangement was that, Kris and family will be staying with him three days a week but if he decides to get married, they will stop from residing in the house.

Noynoy was rumored to have a Bulacan councilor as thecurrent girl friend.


Willie Revillame in hot water again

The popular TV host of Wowowee is the subject of petition for his percieved arrogance in stopping the live-stream of the corgete of former President Cory Aquino.

According to the news, more than 1,800 wre already gathered to oust Revillame from housting the noontime show.

The actual statements of Willie are the following:

"Pangit! Hindi ho maganda sa atin. Nagsasalita [ako], ipinapakita yung kabaong ni Tita Cory, hindi ba? Papano kami makapagsasaya?”

The petition is worded as follows:

It read in part: “…bad taste for ABS-CBN to show a snippet of the funeral on Wowowee, but it was worse for Revillame to react that way. Willie has chosen to let the contestant dance instead of cutting short her act and give way to the coverage of the cortege. Willie has chosen to blurt out his rude comments on-air instead of [doing it] off-cam. In short, Willie chose to have fun instead of giving way to the funeral of Pres. Corazon Aquino…that was not a good example to [show] our youth today.”
