Charice's father killed

Will Charice come home to attend the wake of his father Ricky Pempengco? He died of stab wounds for motives unknown yet. Her parents separated when she was still not popular. Domestic violence was the reason for the separation.
Ricky Pempengco, estranged father of international singing sensation Charice, died of multiple stab wounds close to midnight Monday at San Pedro, Laguna, in what appeared to be a drunken skirmish with still an unidentified killer.
Initial police investigation by San Pedro’s SOCO team revealed Ricky died on the spot. The motive is yet to be determined.
Eyewitnesses said coming from a drinking spree, Ricky was buying cigarettes from a street vendor when the suspect approached and stabbed him.  Ricky was able to run but he collapsed on the sidewalk due to multiple stab wounds


Jinkee should stop involving Krista Ranillo

Jinkee is advised to stop mentioning Krista Ranillo in her issues with her husband's infidelity. Many believed that Krista is now happy and living quietly with the husband and their children. 

Jinkee still uses Krista  to justify her husband
It will do Jinkee Pacquiao a lot of good if she will stop talking about the alleged philandering ways of her husband.
In the latest spate of controversy linking Pacquiao to a certain Kat Ordoñez whose baby was baptized recently, Jinkee justified her husband (once again!) by mentioning the name of Krista Ranillo. “Manny promised me that after Krista, wala nang iba pang kasunod at naniniwala ako sa asawa ko,” she said to this effect.
We believe that Jinkee will be better advised if: 1. she opens her eyes to the realities of her life; 2. she stops mentioning Krista in her interviews.
Krista now lives in peace with her brand new family. She has moved on with her life quietly, away from showbiz and the intrigues that go with it. That alleged affair had been over for more than a year already.
Jinkee must know by now that no wife knows the absolute truth about a husband’s indiscretion.
We just hope that Krista or anybody from her side, will not be pushed to make any “revelations” about that shameful involvement of long ago that could maybe shock Jinkee to her senses.


Ram Revilla died of stab wounds and gun shot

He was one of the many children of ex-Senator and actor Ramon Revilla Sr. and a half brother of Senator Bong Revilla. Ram Revilla was the son of Genelyn Magsaysay but was very close to his half-siblings. He was killed in his home in Paranaque City by still unidentified assailant.

Here is the news: 

MANILA, Philippines - Ram Bautista Revilla, a budding actor and the half-brother of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., was killed in his home in Parañaque City before midnight on Friday.
This was confirmed by the senator himself in an interview with dzMM.
 According to Revilla, his brother was stabbed and shot to death. This was corroborated by Police Officer 2 Francisco Bukid, the first to arrive at the crime scene, in a separate interview with the same radio station.
“Maraming saksak sa likod at ulo, iba’t-ibang parte ng katawan at saka sabi may isa daw tama ng bala,” said Bukid.
Police recovered an empty shell of .45 calibre gun from the crime scene.


Annabelle Rama defended Ruffa Gutierrez from detractors

 It is but expected that Annabelle Rama comes to the  defense of any of her children when they are in trouble with the law, the media and their peers. The reason that she gave all the time is envy or jealousy on the part of the perceived enemies.

Here is the news: 
MANILA, Philippines – Talent manager Anabelle Rama has spoken her piece regarding the latest controversy faced by her daughter, former beauty queen and television host Ruffa Gutierrez.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News during her birthday celebration held on Thursday, Rama said she supports her daughter after her name was dragged in the latest tiff between showbiz couple Shaina Magdayao and John Lloyd Cruz.
Without naming names, she uttered, “Sana ‘yung mga naiingit kay Ruffa tumahimik na kayo. Huwag na kayong ma-insecure.”
‘There’s no cure for the insecure’Cruz, Magdayao and Gutierrez recently crossed paths during the birthday celebration of actress Bea Alonzo. This was followed by their meeting in the birthday concert of singer Vina Morales.
After Morales’ birthday celebration, Gutierrez posted biting comments on Twitter over someone who allegedly sent her text messages at “ungodly hours.”

Hindi raw hiwalay si Claudine Barreto at Raymart Santiago

Hiwaly o di hiwalay, that is the question. Pero nagpahayag na si Claudine Barreto at Raymart Santiago na nagsasama pa silang dalawa. Takot kayang mawalan ng product endorsement?

Ito ang balita: 
MANILA, Philippines – Celebrity couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto on Friday dispelled rumors that they have separated.
In the couple’s joint statement released through Barretto’s talent manager, Shirley Kuan, they said their marriage remains intact.

The couple asked the public to deal with their concerns “without the glare and glee of media speculation that only hurt us and those we love.”
Barretto and Santiago added that the recent controversy surrounding their separation has caused pain to their children.


Why do they have to use James Yap

Why do they have to use James Yap to promote the album of Maria Digby. The ex-husband of Kris Aquino is so quiet that he does not make himself available for interview and photo-op.

Nakakahiya sila.

Marie Digby reveals real score with James Yap

Ruffa denied that she was the first to text

In an interview with Boy Abunda, Shaina Magdayao admiited she texted Ruffa Gutierrez but that was after Ruffa texted her boyfriend, John Lloyd Cruz. Ruffa Gutierrez denied this allegation.
Here is the news: 

MANILA, Philippines – Former beauty queen and TV host Ruffa Gutierrez said actor John Lloyd Cruz is no longer her crush.
She gave her new comment a day after actress Shaina Magdayao, girlfriend of Cruz, admitted on ABS-CBN's "Bandila" that she had texted Gutierrez after a recent party and told her to leave them alone.
“Kung mayroon man akong crush at kung mayroon akong lalaki sa buhay ko, definitely it’s not John Lloyd Cruz. I mean, please,” Gutierrez said in an interview on Thursday.
The former co-host of "The Buzz" also belittled her involvement in the troubled ties between Shaina and John Lloyd, calling the issue "cheap." She also traced the problem to Shaina's jealousy.


Ano talaga ang problema nina Raymanrt Santiago at Claudine Barreto

Pagkatapos ng magarbong kasal, dalawang taon na halos na nababalitang hiwalay na si Raymanrt Santiago at Claudine Barreto. Pero pinabubulaanan nila ito hanggang kahapon na nag-iiitak si Claudine nang malaman niyang nawithdraw na ang limang milyon nilang joint account ng asawa. 

Ito ang balita.

Maraming question ang naghihintay ng kasagu­tan sa bagong isyu tungkol kay Claudine na tu­ma­bon sa tsismis na hiwalay na sina John Lloyd at Shaina.
Bakit may kasama si Claudine na abogado nang pu­munta siya sa bangko para i-withdraw ang kadatungan? Bakit maingat sa pagsasalita ang legal counsel ni Claudine?


Danica Sotto versus Kristin Hermosa-Sotto

Ibig bang sabihin, hindi magkasundo si Danica Sotto at si Kristine Hermosa. Narito ang balita.

Danica vs Kristine
Danica Sotto and sis-in-law Kristine Hermosa were said to have clashed during a family dinner with Oyo Boy and their mom Dina Bonnevie. Tin hardly ate, which prompted Danica to blurt out, “’Di ka pala kakain e, sana ’di ka nagpunta rito.”
Oyo reportedly wanted to come to the rescue of his wife. “Kung ’di ko lang kapatid ’yan (Danica), papatulan ko ’yan,” Oyo  said in exasperation.
Danica just gave birth and Tin is pregnant—it’s probably just mood swings. Or perhaps Tin was craving something for dinner and Danica was having post-partum blues. Danica texted me to say nothing of the sort happened, but someone close to Danica swears it did.
I’m sure they’ll patch things up and let love prevail, just like any family. Being on the family way should not get in the way of ties that bind.

Claudine Barreto ninakawan ni Raymart Santiago?

Totoo kaya itong balita na ninakaw ni Raymart Santiago ang limang milyong nasa bangko na nakapangalan sa kanila ni Claudine Santiago. Bakit niya nanakawin?

Ito ang balita. 

UMIIYAK ang aktres na si Claudine Barretto nang datnan ng media sa isang sangay ng banko sa Quezon Avenue kaninang umaga.
Kasama ang kanyang abogado na si Atty. Agnes Maranan ay galit na dinakdakan ng aktres ang teller ng banko nang abutin sila ng kalahating oras bago sabihin sa kanya na wala na ang balanse ng kanyang pera sa banko, makaraang tangka nitong i-withdraw ang hindi pa batid na halaga ng salapi.


John Lloyd Cruz at Shaina Magdayao split na?

Selos daw ang dahilan ng paghihiwalay ni John Lloyd Cruz at Shain Magdayao. Pero totoo bang split na sila?

Ito ang balita.

Ang balita tungkol sa paghihiwalay nina John Lloyd Cruzat Shaina Magdayao ang big news kahapon pero hindi pa kinukumpirma ng magkabilang kampo ang katotohanan sa isyu.
Ang tsismis, selos ang dahilan ng paghihiwalay nina John Lloyd at Shaina.
Ewan ko lang kung may kinalaman ang pagte-text ni Shaina kay Ruffa Gutierrez sa paghihiwalay nila ni John Lloyd.
Si Ruffa ang nag-confirm sa Paparazzi noong Linggo na tinawagan siya ni John Lloyd sa kanyang cell phone noong October 18 para mag-apologize.

Cora Pastrana versus Raymond Bagatsing

MANILA, Philippines  - US-based columnist Cora Pastrana was utterly surprised to learn that her former husband, Raymond Bagatsing, already has a girlfriend whom he publicly introduced in 2010 via  “Showbiz Central.”
“That’s the shocker because I didn’t know that girlfriend," Pastrana said on the same show Oct. 23. "I have never heard of her or never met her. Siyempre, you’re sort of taken aback coz’ I don’t know that was going on if that was going on."
The columnist wishes Bagatsing had introduced his GF, Mexican-American Vanessa Ilka Cortez, later on.
“We are not divorced yet,” she explained, which ran counter to Bagatsing’s 2010 statement, thus: "Actually, ano lang ‘yon, mga four months lang ‘yon.  Alam mo na, nagpakasal, nag-divorce. We move on.”
Pastrana said:  "What I’m saying is, wait for it to happen, ‘di ba? There’s a process and you just respect that and you have to inform the other party who’s part of that marriage. Hindi puwede ‘yong you just go ahead and do what you want and say something that you want to say. Hind puwede ‘yong gnao’n.  You have to respect the other party. ‘Yon lang naman ang sa akin because I’ve always been protective of him and I’ve always cared for him.”
Pastrana and Bagatsing got wed Nov. 21, 2008 at Gateway Sheraton Hotel in  Los Angeles, California.
The US columnist said she agreed to be interviewed by Pia Guanio for “Showbiz Central” because “there are a lot of things I want to clarify, kasi ever since we got married there were so many speculations not only here but also in LA.
“I kept quiet because I’m very private as far as my private life is. But then there’s so many write-ups that came out here and [on the] Internet [that] were very offensive and speculative and very unfair, actually. And that really affected us,” she said.
The US-based writer for three publications shared that “noong dumating si Raymond doon noong 2006, he went there for several plays and engagements.
“Nag-apply siya[ng visa], on his own. There is such a thing as a visa for permanent residency for artists like him. They are aliens with exceptional talents and abilities. Tinulungan ko in the sense that ido-document ko siyempre iyan to prove he is worthy of that visa.”
In 2008, Raymond Bagatsing married a US based entertainment writer who is much older than he is, Cora Pastrana. In 2001, Bagatsing said that the marriage did not last four months and they got divorced. Pastrana was saying they are not divorced yet. Who is telling the truth? 

Contrary to speculations, Pastrana said Bagatsing did not use her to be able to secure a green card while in the US.
“Hindi nga, eh, kaya nga it’s so unfair to him; of course, to me because para bang it’s all exploitation, ‘yon ang lumalabas. He’s used to being respected and admired as an exceptional artist and suddenly people are looking at him strangely like, ‘What’s wrong with this guy looking for mother?’”
Asked to describe what kind of relationship they had, Pastrana quipped, “It was something very beautiful I’d say.”
She elaborated: “Whatever we had, whether you call it friendship that turned into love – and it’s not something that people understand – we really bonded all [those] years.”


Marian Rivera is not sure whether she wants Dingdong to join politics

Marian Rivera expressed uncertainty when she was asked if she wants Dingdong to become a politician.
Here is the news:
The question made Marian Rivera shriek and, for a minute there, it was uncertain whether she was alarmed or tickled pink. Or both.
Would she stand by her man, fellow GMA 7 star Dingdong Dantes, should he decide to plunge into the world of politics?
“I really don’t know,” she replied. “Whatever happens in the future, I will support Dingdong’s decisions. Wherever he goes, whatever makes him happy… I will be behind him.”
Was she ready to be a politician’s wife or, why not, a first lady? Now a gleeful giggle and, quick on the draw, “I just want to be an actress.”
Wedding bells are reportedly ringing soon for the Kapuso couple. “We’re not thinking about that yet,” Marian said. “We know it’s a big decision and we will not hide it from the public when we decide to get married.”


Jinkee, manonood din ng laban ni Manny Pacquiao

Ano naman kaya ang nagpabago sa pasya ni Jinkee na huwag panoorin ang laban ng kaniyang asawang si Manny Pacquiao? Takot ba siyang hindi siya balikan? Hindi naman daw siya naniniwala na anak ni Manny ang anak ni Kat Ordonez. Pero bakit sabi niya siya ang legal na asawa kaya wala siyang ikinatatakot.

Ito ang balita. 

Oh lilipad naman pala pa-Amerika si Jinkee Pacquiaopara manood ng laban ng asawa ayon sa kumalat na kuwento kahapon.
Aalis daw ito after Undas.
Sinabi raw nitong hindi siya naniniwala sa tsismis at mahal na mahal niya si Manny Pacquiao.Nag-promise na raw si Pacman na mananatili siyang loyal sa kanilang kasal.
Good for them. Lalo na kay Jinkee. At least na-realize niya na siya ang legal na asawa kaya wala siyang dapat ipag-alala.
Naging tahimik si Jinkee matapos sumabog ang balitang bininyagan ang anak ni Pacman sa isang babaeng nagngangalang si Kat Ordoñez na ayon sa source ay ang malalapit din naman kay Pacman ang pinanggalingan ng mga kuwento.


Nora, titigil na ng paniniggarilyo

Natutuwa si German Moreno at nangako si Ate Guy na hihinto ng manigarilyo.

Mukhang nakabuti ‘yung ginawang pagpuna kay Nora Aunor na lumabas sa cover ng isang babasahin na may hawak siyang sigarilyo. Dahil marahil pinag-usapan at sinabing masamang impluwensiya sa marami kung kaya biglang nagising ang Superstar at sinabing ititigil na ang kanyang bisyo.
Aba, maganda ito! Sana lang ay mapangatawanan niya ito. Hindi ako naninigarilyo pero alam kong mahirap itong itigil pero kapag nagawa niya ay siya ang unang-unang makikinabang.
Good luck Guy!


Lolit Solis versus Lito Camo

Galit na galit si Lolit Solis kay Lito Camo sa pag-akusa sa kaniya na siya ang naglabas ng retrato ng "anak" daw ni Manny Pacquiao kay Kat Ordonez.

Ano kaya ang gagawin niya pag nakita niya si Lito Camo ?

May mga tumatawag sa akin at nagtatanong kung puwede raw ba na ibigay nila kay Lito Camo ang telephone number ko dahil gusto niya na mag-explain.
Isang malakas na “hindi!” ang sagot ko dahil hindi ko pinangarap na makausap ang isang tao na mapag-imbento ng balita?
Bago ako kausapin ni Lito, kausapin muna niya ang kanyang sarili at tanungin kung bakit gumawa siya ng gulo na lalong nagpalaki sa isyu ng diumano’y pagiging ninong ni Manny Pacquiao sa anak ng isang Kat Ordonez.
May hinala ako na gustong ilihis ni Lito ang isyu dahil siya ang nasa litrato ng binyag ng bagets. Naghahanap si Lito ng ibang masisisi dahil afraid siya kay Jinkee Pacquiao. Pero kung kaya ni Lito na mag-imbento ng kuwento at magsangkot ng mga inosenteng tao, capable siya na magpakita ng mukha kay Jinkee. 

Jinkee apektado ng larawan ng love child daw ni Manny

Tahimik lang si Jinkee Pacquiao pero masyado siyang apektado sa balita at larawan ng binyag ng sinasabing anak ni Manny Pacquioa kay Kat Ordonez.

Kahit hindi aminin ni Jinkee Pacquiao at kahit nag­bigay na ng pahayag ang ina ng batang sinasabing anak ng Pambansang Kamao, nagdulot ito masamang epekto sa Pacquiao marriage. Kung hindi ay bakit hindi sasama ng Las Vegas si Jinkee hindi lamang para panoorin ang laban ni Manny kundi para suportahan doon ito.

And then all of a sudden, nangyari ulit iyon. Parang what’s going on? Nag-stop lahat. It’s harder the second time around to put the pieces together. Parang ito na ba iyon? Is there any hope,” he said.

Firat time na manonood si MArian Rivera sa boksing ni Manny Pacquiao at inamin niyang lalabas siya kapag hindi niya natagalang nakikita ang dati niyang kasa sa TV series na Kamao ng Bayan.

Natutuwa para sa mga kasama sa Amaya si Marian Rivera dahil sa mahabang extension ng epic serye, tiyak na maganda ang Pasko at Bagong Taon nilang lahat. Pinakiusapan pala si Marian ng mga kasama na mag-request sa GMA 7 na i-extend ang serye pero hindi na niya kailangang makiusap dahil ang network na ang nag-decide na paabutin hanggang Jan. 13 ang epic serye.
Sabi pala ni Marian, after the Manobo phase, magiging warrior na siya kaya malapit na ang inaabangan ng marami. Nabanggit din nitong ’pag natapos ang Amaya, iiyak siya dahil sobra ang bonding nilang magkakasama rito.


Sharon Cuneta Dinamayan ang Anak na Nagdadalamhating si KC Concepcio

Kawawa naman si KC Concepcion. Napilitang pumunta sa Europe para mag-isip at ngayon ay mapipilitan na namang makita si Piolo dahil sa kanilang trabaho. Kaya come to the rescue and mother niyang si Sharon Cuneta.

Dapat lang talagang damayan ni Sharon Cuneta ang kanyang panganay na dalaga ngayong may malaking problema ito sa puso. She was there to give her and Piolo Pascual her blessing nang ihayag nila ang pagkakaroon nila ng relasyon.
Ngayong ipinalalagay ng lahat na hindi sini­ser­­yoso ng aktor ang kanyang anak, kailangan na siguro niyang mamagitan, if only to assure her na sasamahan nila si KC sa paglutas ng kanyang problema. ’Yun lang naman ang puwede niyang gawin kahit siguro kating-kati na siyang komprontahin si PJ ngayon pero hindi siya puwedeng makialam kay KC.


Kris Aquino and John Llyod still the top endorsers

Even with just one single TV program, Kris Quino is still assured of revenues from her endorsements of products in the TV. 
MANILA, Philippines - Two Kapamilya stars topped the list of celebrities endorsing various products on television.

Kasalakuyan pang pinag-uusapan ang magiging tema ng kanyang show pero kung si Jinkee ang tatanungin, nais niyang may kinalaman ito sa public service.

Buo naman ang suporta ng Pambansang Kamao sa pagsabak ni Jinkee sa showbiz. Sa katunayan, si Pacquiao ang unang kinausap sa pagkakaroon ng sariling show ng kanyang maybahay.

Two more Charges for Maricel Soriano

Lalong lumalala ang problema ni Maricel Soriano dahil sa pag-iwas niya sa pagharap ng kasong isinampa ng dati niyang mga katulong. Dalawa pang kaso, kidnapping at serious legal detention ang idinagdag sa mga charges sa kaniya.

MANILA, Philippines – Actress Maricel Soriano did not show up for the clarificatory hearing scheduled on Oct. 3 at the Makati Prosecutor’s Office as regards the charges filed against her by her former household helps.
May Cachuela and Camille Acojedo, who filed cases of grave threats, unjust vexation, slander oral defamation and physical injuries against Soriano; as well as their legal counsel Tolie Estrellae were present at the hearing.
Estrella explained the importance of clarificatory meeting in the case.
“Kasi ang clarificatory meeting, it’s the last resort of the investigating prosecutor to dispel all doubts in his mind. It’s also the last resort for the respondent to clear things up regarding the matter,” Estrella shared on “Showbiz Central,” Oct. 9.
“They’re no-show for today,” the legal counsel noted. “We were informed last week that the counsel for the respondent stated, according to our text message, they were not informed daw pero today, this morning, I saw them at the lobby.”
The complainants added two more cases against the actress: kidnapping and serious illegal detention.
Estrella explained that they have to file the additional lawsuits against Soriano.


Pia Guanio, kinasal na

And I thought bonggang kasal ang naghihintay para kay Pia Guanio na ikinasal sa boyfriend na si Steve Mago. Pero ikakasal pa rin naman daw sa Italy o nagbago na naman ang isip?

GMA News anchor Pia Guanio and husband, businessman Steve Mago, prepared for their “simple and private" wedding ceremony for over a month. More than a week after the rites, they kept mum about it before finally admitting on Sunday that they got married on Oct. 1.
In a phone interview aired live on Sunday on GMA Network’s “Showbiz Central," the entertainment news magazine program that she co-hosts, Pia said the wedding “was solemn…very meaningful, and it was private."
She said they had less than 50 guests gathered inside a tent in the garden of the home of her husband’s parents in the Ayala Alabang subdivision in Muntinlupa. 

They got engaged last May 7 but made that public knowledge four days after.

KC Concepcion, hiwaly na kay Piolo?

Talaga yatang wala ng pag-asang magkatuluyan si KC Concepcion at Piolo Pascual. Pahiwatig niya bago siya umalis patungong Europa ay gusto niyang mag-isip. Wala siyang pakialam kung alam ni Piolo o hindi ang kaniyang pag-alis.

Ito ang balita:

Kahapon ay hindi nakapag-host si KC Concepcion sa programang The Buzz dahil umalis siya noong Miyerkules ng gabi papuntang Europe. Marami na naman ang naglabasang balita kamakailan na hiwalay na talaga sina KC at Piolo Pascual.
Nakagugulat ang mga pahayag na ibinigay ng dalaga tungkol sa isyu bago siya umalis. “Kailangan ko lang ng oras para sa sarili ko, sa dami-dami nang nangyari at nangyayari, siguro kailangan ko lang mag-isip talaga, para lang mahanap ko lang ’yung sarili ko ulit.
“Siyempre comfort zone ko ’yung Europe, tamang-tama na nandoon ’yung childhood friends ko. Maganda rin na makasama ko ’yung matagal ko nang kaibigan at makapunta ulit sa lugar na makapagpapasaya sa akin. Meron ding mga events na mangyayari, may wedding ’yung isa kong kaibigan. Gusto nila ng side trip sa Paris, gusto nilang makaikot sa lugar na ’di masyadong alam ng turista.


Maricel Soriano did not attend hearing of physical abuse

Hindi pa rin sinisipot ni Maricel Soriano ang mga pandinig sa kasong inihain ng dalawa niyang katulong laban sa kaniya. Paano niya kaya malulusutan ang gusot na ito?

Ito ang balita.
MANILA, Philippines – Actress Maricel Soriano was still a no-show during the hearing of physical abuse charges filed by two former house help at the Makati Prosecutor’s Office on Wednesday.
The complainants, together with members of the media, were made to wait for more than three hours but the veteran actress did not arrive for the scheduled hearing.
The complainants, Mae Cachuela and Camille Acojedo, arrived at the office of Fiscal Paulo Talban together with their lawyer Tolie Estrella at 9 a.m.
Estrella said that he saw Soriano’s lawyer Raquel Taguien arrive at the prosecutor’s office but was surprised that her client was not with her. He added that Soriano may have refused to attend the hearing because many reporters were waiting for her.


No Other Woman

Popular yata sa publiko ang ganitong klase ng pelikula, magmula pa noon kina Marlene Dauden, Lolita Rodriguez at Eddie Rodriguez.
Ngayon naman ay ang mga batang sina Derek Ramsay, Christine Reyes at Anne Curtis.

MANILA, Philippines – Lead stars Cristine Reyes, Anne Curtis, and Derek Ramsay are overwhelmed with the box-office success of their much-talked about film “No Other Woman,” which has reached the P100-M mark as per Star Cinema.

“Buzz” host Toni Gonzaga announced during the interview that the Ruel Bayani-helmed drama raked in P15 million on its opening day, Sept. 28, and P70 million over the weekend.

Nora Aunor isinugod sa ospital

Kung bakit isinugod sa ospital si Nora Aunor ay di malaman pa ang dahilan.

Ito ang balita:  
Isinugod umano sa ospital ang Superstar na si Nora Aunor nitong Martes, ayon sa kanyang matalik na kaibigan at manager na si German “Kuya Germs" Moreno.
Sa kanyang radio program na "Walang Siyesta" sa dzBB radio nitong hapon ng Martes, sinabi ni Kuya Germs na posibleng sobrang pagod sa trabaho ang dahilan ng pagkakasakit ng batikang aktres.
Bukod sa sobrang pagod, hinihinala ni Kuya Germs na maaaring nakaapekto rin sa kalusugan ni Aunor ang pabago-bagong panahon sa Pilipinas.
Bagaman, inabisuhan umano si Ate Guy na magpahingan, hindi nabanggit ni Kuya Germs kung saan ospital dinala ang kaibigan at kung pinayagan na itong lumabas ng pagamutan.
Matagal nang namamalagi sa Amerika si Ate Guy at dumating siya sa Pilipinas noong Agosto para gumawa ng ilang proyekto.


Nora Aunor's camp denied they asked for Cristy Fermin's ouster from TV5

A friend of Nora Aunor, Sunga denied the rumor that Nora Aunor and John Rendez asked the TV5 management to remove Cristy Fermin from the network.

According to the same report, the Superstar’s ill-feelings were supposedly due to Fermin’s reportedly “unfavorable” write-ups about her and close friend John Rendez back in 2008. PEP noted that these news items reached Aunor while she was still residing in the US.
With this, Aunor was allegedly heard talking about Fermin on the set of her TV5 mini-serye “Sa Ngalan ng Ina” in Taal, Batangas. The Superstar purportedly asked people about the number of shows Fermin has in the station. Upon finding out that Fermin has four in all, including her radio show on TV5’s Radyo Singko 92.3 News FM, Aunor allegedly said, “It's about time na mamili ang station sa aming dalawa.”
PEP said that Aunor also refused be interviewed again for “Paparazzi,” with the reason that Fermin is one of the hosts of the Sunday talk show.
But weeks prior to this hullabaloo, and as mentioned by Sunga, Fermin had an exclusive one-on-one interview with Aunor aired on “Paparazzi” on Aug. 7. Aunor finally went back to the Philippines on Aug. 2 after living abroad for eight years.

Ruffa Gutierrez defends her mother

One thing that can be observed in Gutierrez family is that when one is embattled with someone, a member comes to the rescue. This time it is Ruffa Gutierrez who defends mother Annabelle Rama against Nadia Montenegro, the mother of the children allegedly abused by the talent manager.

MANILA, Philippines – TV host-actress Ruffa Gutierrez defended her mother and manager Annabelle Rama against Nadia Montenegro’s accusation that the former committed child abuse.
Speaking live on “Paparazzi Showbiz Exposed” on Oct. 2, Ruffa declared, “You can call my mom rude, bastos, maingay, but she's definitely not a child abuser."
"We will not tolerate any kind of abuse, especially me being a victim once, and now a survivor of abuse,” she added, pertaining to the alleged abuse she suffered in the hands of her estranged husband, Turkish businessman Yilmaz Bektas.
