Continuing Their Secret Affair

Image courtesy of www.artrix.co.uk

Fame in showbiz comes with a high price. Family, friends, and affiliation sometimes have to be sacrificed. Managers would want their talents to assume a certain identity in exchange for an image that will sell and the public will adore. The few who adhere to these demands succeed, while there are others, who despite giving up everything, still miserably fail. Some young actors have to deny their gay benefactors, or stay closeted. Some actresses have to hide their lovers or deny a love child.

The most tragic price for success in showbiz is perhaps to deny one’s own family. Sadly, this talented actor (TA) has to give in and bite this bitter pill. Some people know that TA had a child with a partner before he hit stardom. He had to make a choice and the rest is history. His network transformed him into what he is now - one of today's hottest.

TA and partner try very hard to be private about their relationship. There were talks that went around that part of the contract of TA was for him to remain unattached. Recently, a story came out that it was over for TA and the mother of his child. The partner kept quiet about the issue and let it take its course. She’s become more focused and conscious of the fact that every sacrifice will be for the welfare and future of her child.

However, all might not be lost. TA and partner were spotted holding hands in a more secluded mall east of the city. They were sweet and even held hands while they were on the escalator. Probably attempting to remain incognito, TA was wearing a cap with head a little bowed and his partner was wearing bug shades. Some of those who saw them recognized TA. Does this appearance belie the separation rumour?

Now, if TA were to keep this relationship and continue to be seen in public with his partner, will his management get in the way? TA should know that his newfound status can plunge as quickly as it zoomed.

The Sideline of the Former Heartthrob

Image courtesy of www.djvijay.com

Former teenage heartthrob (FTH) has an interesting sideline. According to a reliable source, FTH is engaged in the booking business. No, he does not place bets on races or something similar. In bekimon, FTH is “pabooking,” which means engaging in certain bedroom activities with anyone who can pay his asking price. Furthermore, his asking price is negotiable: allegedly between Php 20 to 25k per session.

It’s such a pity that FTH is allegedly involved in this business. When he was starting out, he easily stood out because he had the looks and the talent in acting. His entry was promising because the young actors at that time lacked the acting intensity needed to be convincing. FTH even got the interest of a major movie network, who gave him his launching movie. Sadly, the movie did not do well at the box office.

Nonetheless, FTH had several projects on tv, but all these opportunities became scarce as stories about his unprofessionalism spread around. Stories even floated that he was allegedly into illegal substances, which he denied. To make it worse, FTH got involved with a married woman. Rather than earn the ire of the husband, FTH went abroad upon the advice of his parents. And add to that, his frequent sightings at the casino. Indeed, all the ingredients to self-destruct. What a waste for a truly talented person.

A few years later, FTH made his comeback via an indie film where he shared the starring role with an emerging talent at that time. The movie was acclaimed but networks and producers were wary of hiring FTH. Since he came back, FTH is still covered by the press occasionally; however, he is not visible on the screen these days.

The Scent of a Woman

Image courtesy of www.coloribus.com

Product endorsers can have a huge impact on one's business. A respected celebrity can add both credibility and value to a product, and paves the way for instant recall even to an unknown or untried brand. An endorser is thus expected to send a message to the public that she/he is indeed a believer and user of the product being endorsed.

Actress Endorser AE and her manager HM were at the press launch of her latest endorsement -- a new perfume brand PB. The endorsement made AE several million pesos richer in talent fee, among other perks that came with it. When talent and manager arrived at the venue, there were the usual exchange of pleasanties with everybody present.

When the PB company's Vice President VP arrived, as a show of courtesy, AE approached him and extended a handshake before she did the customary "beso-beso." Suddenly, the VP stopped and paused for a few seconds. Being the company top gun, he knew and smelled AE's perfume which was not PB that they were launching which AE was paid to promote and endorse.

VP was visibly annoyed -- to him that was a spectacular oversight. VP called HM and chided him for his negligence over AE's blunder. HM was so embarrassed and apologized profusely. Immediately, HM went back to the table he shared with AE and some company executives. Very quietly and discreetly, he told her what the VP told him and scolded her for not wearing the company's perfume on its launching day at that. AE who is not known to be mindful of etiquette, quickly retorted, in full earshot of the company executives seated on the table, " Eh kasi naman Momsy, ayaw ni **** (name of her bf) na gamitin ko yung pabango kasi amoy p*kp*k daw. Mag-aamoy p*kp*k daw ako pag ginamit ko!"

Can you guess what happened next?

Letter from a Reader: What You See Is Not Always What You Get

 Image courtesy of www.shutterstock.com

                                 
Dear Fashion PULIS,

I am a Kapamilya fan and also an avid reader of Fashion PULIS. I would like to share with you some sidelights/tidbits about the ASAP stars when they had the ASAP show here in Singapore recently.

The ASAP stars were all around SG for 2 days and since there are many Pinoys here including the OFW's, many fans easily recognized them. My friend and I were at Suntec when we saw Bamboo having coffee at Coffee Bean. Of course we were starstruck but too shy to approach. We followed him when he stood up and walked towards the Conrad Hotel. Then we were so surprised to see most of ASAP stars scattered at the hotel lobby. Since it is a hotel, we were really too shy to approach them to take pictures, so we just stood there and gawked.

Almost all of them were going in and out of the hotel lobby except for one, Piolo Pascual who was the only one sitting at a couch and smiling at us. It was such a friendly smile as if he was inviting us to approach him, but oh, we really didn't have that much guts to even go near him, what a loss! I don't know, but we felt awkward to be running after stars inside the hotel. My friend and I were probably the only fans there.

During the actual show itself, Piolo was "super bait," with such genuine kindness. Yes, we also saw several stars walking along the lobby and we said 'Hi' to them and they waved and said Hi back to us. However there were also a few who were quite a big disappointment, and kind of turned us off completely.

We saw a Teleserye hunk Actor TA getting off from the lift and walking with his head bowed all the time while holding a cap to cover his face. It was actually funny and OA of him to do that because there were just my friend and I whom you can call as Pinoy fans who were there at that time. As in there was no one who would haunt him for photos and ask for autograph. Thus, TA's fears to be hounded by unruly and screaming fans was clearly unfounded. Our impression was that TA was really a complete snub.

Another turn-off was a VJ/host VJH. She walked infront of us so my friend said, "Hi VJH!" Yes, she mentioned VJH's name. But we were so surprised by her reaction. VJH just glared at us, very coldly, "sabay irap!" We were shocked and it took a while before we recovered from that. Just goes to show that what we see in front of the camera is really different from what some of them show in public, especially with VJH. Until now, I still can't forget how stiff her face was. Oh well, maybe she wasn't in the mood, or just so wrong of us to expect a 'hi' from her or even a smile, just like the rest of the stars we met like Shaina, Kim, Maja, Piolo, Bamboo, Khalil, Daniel, Enchong etc.

By the way, most of our"kababayans" who went to see the ASAP show were quite disappointed with Very Popular teleserye Actor VPA as well. He was so cold with the fans, he was smiling but so uncomfortable or shy maybe? He wasn't charming like most of his colleagues, some fans branded him as "suplado." Could it be that he was still "living" his role in the soap that just ended?

Well, this just it, FP - I'm just venting out maybe, and at the same time showing big appreciation to some stars who know how to acknowledge their fans whether in or out of the Philippines.

Congrats to your blog, FP! God bless always!

An avid fan,
Mara

The Cranky Sleep-Deprived Actor

Image courtesy of www.alampy.blogspot.com

When the young character actor (YCA) entered showbiz, much was expected from him because he belongs to one of the so-called royal families of the industry. His grandparents, parents, and other relatives achieved a certain celebrity status in their heydays. Hence, YCA showed he could sing and act. His performances were praised by critics and his sensitivity as an actor in versatile roles was acclaimed. Then, he had to play musical chairs and moved networks.

Now, comes the rumor that YCA was allegedly axed from a series where he was supposed to play lead. Of course, this move was downplayed as the reason seems unclear and will create an issue that will require an endless stream of questions and explanations. According to the grapevine, YCA has certain idiosyncrasies that the production people noticed only because his behavior has been affecting the telerserye's tapings.

While taping inside a sacred place, YCA just decided to make one of the pews his bed. There’s nothing wrong with catching some snooze when you’re not yet on call. However, YCA stayed on the pew and dozed off when a scene was being taped within the area. Then, it was the turn of YCA for his scene. The staff tried to wake him up but YCA responded grumpily and said he did not want to be disturbed because he was sleeping. Hence, the female co-star with whom YCA was supposed to have the scene with was so irritated because he was so unprofessional. Tapings usually have a schedule and any delay will mean additional constraints on the budget and nerves of the production people.

YCA seemed to be so deprived of sleep. Sadly, YCA could not escape the conclusions of some witnesses that the reason why he was so sleepy was that he might have allegedly taken something that altered his sleeping pattern. Whatever it was that made YCA behave that way was too costly for his career and reputation.

The Unexpected Tragedy of the Fashion Icon Wannabe

Image courtesy of www.holyhiphop.com

As soon as he established his career through the backing of a big network, and millions of box office receipts, fashion icon wannabee (FIW) began showing his true colors. The production complained of his attitude towards work. The kibitzers taunted him with his love life. The fans continued to buy his sense of humor. Meanwhile, old friends whom he has dropped merely kept quiet about FIW’s character. However, another perception is that FIW was just showing who he really is, or in other words, he just did not want to have pretensions regardless of who gets hurt in the process.

In a movie event, FIW suffered an embarrassing incident that would certainly make anyone lose poise. As a friend of one of the lead stars in a movie, FIW romped on the red carpet in a gown (remember, he is a fashion icon wannabe, hence, he has to always be dressed to the nines.). Inside the theatre, the host called FIW to go onstage to say a few words to the cast of the movie. After delivering his message, FIW went down the stage. The fans crowded around him as he was making his way out, and one fan stepped on the tail end of his gown. In a few seconds, the gown ripped off. FIW glared at his fans but tried to keep his composure while holding on to the gown to make sure it would not fall off. When he got backstage, he was fuming mad and cursing, something which was no longer surprising.

Does anyone know who designed his gown? Why did it rip so easily? Will FIW dress up in a similar gown again? Your guess is as good as mine.

Why Did She Walk Out?

Image courtesy of www.mybearvalley.edlioschool.com

At a recent fashion event, a clothing brand had three celebrity-models who led the line-up of models who walked the runway. One pretty star PS from a network and two popular actor-hunks AH1 and AH2 who both belong to another network modeled the brand's collections on the ramp. But the real scene that day happened behind the runway.

At the press conference, media people MP requested the conference organizers to present the three celebrity-models one-by-one so that each would have each own moment to shine. However, the organizers would have none of it and chose to present the three celebrity models at the conference all at the same time. What happened was chaos as the two hunks were like honey attracting the bees. MP's attention towards AH1 and AH2 was so overwhelming, as they peppered the two hunks with questions, unwittingly forgetting that PS was also there sitting like a flower girl waiting for ages for her turn to be asked.

PS was already feeling the heat of her awkward situation. She felt even more enraged when she saw a MP from her very own network who instead of siding with her, also ignored her and was even among the bunch of MP's going gaga over AH1 and AH2. That was the last straw, so to speak, poor PS left the conference without a word. When the organizer asked her to go back for a round of interviews, PS stood her ground and ignored them all.

Poll: What are Your Thoughts on this Open Letter


Dear Philippine Fashion,

Just as any formal letter would go, we’d start by asking how are you? Over the past seasons we’ve seen you grow leaps and bounds. Look around and you will see a relatively thriving industry. And look at you, making waves across international shores. With this much attention I am sure we are all encouraged to step up our game to play with the big leagues abroad. Because you know what? We totally can.

Right about now everyone is talking about the 2013 Spring/Summer edition of Philippine Fashion Week. Spirits and anticipation are at a high. What will we see this season? Last season we took the liberty of listing basic fashion etiquette guests should keep in mind when watching the shows. This time we take to the opposite end and list down what we are tired of seeing go down the runway.

1.) Peplums. This may be a marginalized peeve but let’s move on from that trend. It was fresh at least three seasons ago but now it is just exhausting to look at. We’ve seen peplums in different variations and I think it is about time to give it a rest. There are other ways to go about accentuating the waist area, I’m sure.

Special mention goes to the other runway favorite, the mullet skirt. Enough said.

2.) Remember when seasoned models were falling one by one on the catwalk? Yes, that one. While we are glad that designers are thinking of an entire look by having shoes made specifically for their shows. But please, test run those pairs first before sending them out. The models may be a pro at walking in sky-high heels but you never know what will go down (pun intended) the runway. Accidents happen and falling flat on the floor is not pretty. Don’t just make shoes just for the sake of. Function over form. As visually interesting (or editorial) as they may be, it must be carefully engineered to walk in real life. Oh and can we also step away from the heel-less shoes? Their statement has run out, I’m afraid.

3.) We know it’s your heart and soul walking out one ensemble at a time but by now we are all aware that your fashion shouldn’t be indulgent. Garments still have to sell at the end of the day. You want the guests to want your pieces. An over embellished, over designed, I-can-barely-move-or-sit dress is just that, indulgent. Strike that balance between designing for ones self and designing with a woman (or man) in mind. You’ll thank us later.

4.) I believe we’ve seen one too many a season of Project Runway to know that it gets crazy leading up to the show. Incidental problems will arise for sure. This however doesn’t give you the excuse to send down garments with unfinished hems or threads sticking out and catching wind. You wouldn’t want people in the first few rows to want to grab a pair of scissors and snip at the raw edges. You’ve all been given time to complete your collection, we hope you used the time wisely.

5.) Again, you wouldn’t want your guests to cringe at ill-fitting ensembles sashay on the runway. Fit is of utmost importance. You want to show everyone that your clothes can be made for them not I will make one in a generic size and hope it fits you.

6.) Originality is relative. However, I’m sure we understand how the Internet works right? Everyone is informed. You are without a doubt highly creative. Reference thoughtfully and come up with something brilliant as compared to being “totally inspired” by an existing collection from foreign shores. And don’t belittle your audience, some know their fashion and can pinpoint even the most obscure reference. Be very careful.

Other than those mentioned, you’re good to go. We don’t have control over what you ultimately did to your collection. We can only hope for stellar work. It’s your time to shine and with the current trajectory in mind a good chunk of you will hopefully not let us down. We are most definitely looking forward to seeing amazing fashion go down the runway. As Tim Gunn would always say, go out there and knock our socks off. It sure is an exciting time for Philippine fashion and boy are we glad to witness it.

Her Ritual, Her Highness

Image courtesy of www.ladyoftheearth.com

Sexy Actress SA already had several relationships before her current one. Rumors back then were ripe that SA found it difficult to sustain long term relationships. Former boyfriends used to complain about her attitude, that of being a spoiled brat and very controlling of all her relationships. Even with her own family, SA seems to be always having issues.

There were talks that early on in her life, SA had never been happy and content in everything about herself. She was always looking for something. She was often envious of other people, and once she couldn't get what she wanted, there went the big attitude problem.

But no one knew that such attitude would escalate into something bigger than itself. SA had a relationship with RE (rich entrepreneur) who was the son of the owner of a certain retail store. RE said he could not understand why everytime they would go intimate, SA could not function without having a hit.

In the beginning, RE tolerated it just so SA wouldn't fight with him. But there came a time that he couldn't take her habit anymore. That was just too much and he confronted her. Luckily or unluckily for him, SA didn't take it sitting down, she was enraged. RE thought that since he couldn't take the bull by the horn, he had to do what was best -- dump her!

Did Mom Know Best?


While the public seems to side with the obedient daughter (OD), her mother (HM) has been portrayed negatively in the press and among the fans of OD. HM allegedly refused another movie of OD with cute hunk (CH) for non-disclosed reasons. Watchers can only speculate why HM refused, but all fingers pointed to her non-approval of the alleged growing real life romance between OD and CH. Thus, any emotional outburst of OD while singing is always interpreted as her silent sadness due to the decision of CH to get out her life.

Every so often, stories about CH’s alleged girlfriend down south would crop up. CH would deny that he has a girlfriend, and not respond to the issue between him and OD. Because of his popularity, wherever CH goes, he gets much attention. More so, some girls would take the opportunity to be with him even in public functions. The thing is, CH seems to welcome the zealous attention, and reciprocate as seen in his hugs in the photos (taken at a festival and at the height of the alleged relationship of CH and OD).

Is CH a gentleman for not refusing these girls, or is he a player who enjoys the flattery and the attention?

Now, if CH and OD seriously got together, would OD have survived and accepted that CH would always be mobbed, kissed, hugged, and pressed by other girls? Of course, CH would be very careful with how he reacts to the girls who would take advantage of his celebrity status and his youth. Naturally, if he declines the affection, he will be portrayed badly. If OD could accept all these fan reactions and the behavior of CH, would her parents take lightly this behavior towards CH? In putting her foot down towards CH, was OD's mother kind of vindicated?

P25 oysters at MARINA on Oct. 25


Here’s a treat for those who love oysters.

MARINA Oysters Seafood Grill is offering its best-selling oysters at just P25 per order on Oct. 25 in celebration of its 25th anniversary. And as a bonus, it is also slashing prices on all orders of blue marlin by 50 percent every Mondays until November 26th. It’s a special promo that seafood lovers will surely enjoy.

MARINA Oysters Seafood Grill is one of the few homegrown Ilonggo brands to make it big in Metro Manila. Since it opened its first branch at the Ortigas Center in 2002, it has become the destination for oysters, seafood and Ilonggo favorites.

The Marina brand was started in 1987 by Ross H. Gorriceta and his wife Marina Luz to serve Ilonggo cooking as they have it at home. Within months, it became a must-stop destination not just for Ilonggos but also for out-of-towers who wanted to sample local delicacies.

While the restaurant eventually opened a handful of branches in the Visayas, it took its time before opening its first branch in Metro Manila. By that time, RP Gorriceta had taken over the restaurant’s management from his parents.

“Our oysters, seafood and grilled items were such a hit with the Manila market that we were able to recover our initial investment in less that eight months,” RP confesses. “Encouraged, we started opening additional branches at the rate of one branch every six months.”

RP thinks one reason why MARINA became a hit in Metro Manila was because it served oysters in a bucket, which were then a rarity in casual dining restaurants. The unique taste of Ilonggo cooking also proved to be a plus.

“In 2002, oysters were considered a luxury product, available only in hotels and high-end restaurants,” he explains. “What we did was to democratize oysters to the public at large. It took to the concept and our first outlet. After only a month of local flyer-ing and promos, word-of-mouth took over and there was a line for lunch and dinner service everyday, all week long.”

At MARINA, you can have oysters in a variety of ways. It is served Fresh, Steamed, Grilled or Baked. Other preparations include Red Hot Baked, Crispy Wasabi, Sizzling and Kinilaw. No matter how you have it, guests are always assured that all orders of oysters are sourced fresh daily from Iloilo.

RP says, “Our oysters are flown in everyday. Quality and freshness are checked before the oysters leave the source, as they arrive at the commissary, before they are delivered to outlets, and as they arrive at the outlets. As oysters are very sensitive products to handle, you wouldn't believe the rate of damaged products we go through, just to ensure that none reaches our guests' tables.”

To avail of the Php25 Oysters Promo on October 25th, guests must order an item from the a la carte menu. Only two orders of oysters are allowed per table.

On the other hand, MARINA takes pride in its blue marlin as the biggest and thickest cuts in the market. A special preparation ensures that all servings of blue marlin are juicy and perfectly grilled. You can have blue marlin either grilled or sizzling, although RP recommends them grilled.

“They are best enjoyed right off the grill. It’ll melt in your mouth at just the right doneness, what we

Ilonggos call malasado or just below fully cooked to lock in the steak’s juices,” he says.

MARINA Oyster Seafood Grill has branches in Metro Manila at Metrowalk in Ortigas Center, SM Mall of Asia in Pasay, SM North EDSA Sky Garden and along Timog cor Panay Avenues in Quezon City, Market! Market! in Global City Taguig, and Paseo de Magallanes in Makati. Newly opened is the Batangas City Branch across from SM City Batangas. Visit its Facebook Page at facebook.com/marinaoysters.

Unexpected Closeness between Actor and Star

Image courtesy of www.soturbow.deviantart.com

After cool actor (CA) and character star (CS) spent some time abroad for the shows of their network, people were surprised that both seemed closer when they returned to Manila. When CA and CS were in their previous relationships, the public thought each was a perfect match for their respective partners. They looked good together with their ex-es and seeing them with their former lovers elicited that “kilig” factor.

However, when their respective breakups happened, the aftermath were quite scandalous. In the case of CA, he never bothered to reply to the flak and the bashing he got from breaking up with his former lover. Although, he might have wanted to speak out, his management could have given him a gag order. CS, meanwhile, had an on and off relationship with her former boyfriend. It came to a point that CA even got his partner’s hush-hush former girlfriend into their mess. Sad to say, it portrayed CS as the jealous and insecure girlfriend. Unlike CA whose post-break up is over and done with, the camp of CS has recently said that they will start talking if a former lover will not stop provoking them.

If you are with a gorgeous person and actually sharing a room and a bed together, and you are both unattached and far away from the public, what do you think will happen? According to sources, that was exactly the situation of CA and CS. Did something happen while they were away to result in their extra closeness now? Uhmm, well, let’s put it this way, CA is really a gentleman, and the closet is quite full at the moment. Hence, no rumours of a love affair between CA and CS can be generated from this closeness. If something similar gets to be built around this, will people still believe?

There They Go Again

Image courtesy of www.av-geek.com

The sisters, S1 and S2, have always been consistent in their notoriety, whether on or off camera. Apart from those endless diva-like stories about them, there are tidbits going around usually coming from people who have first-hand encounters with them.

Both S1 and S2 go to the same salon frequented by celebrities for their hair needs. Again, anyone who encounters them usually have something to get surprised or shocked about. Both S1 and S2 are not your ordinary salon patrons who will just trust its staff and facilities for their needs. Is it a shock to know that the sisters bring their own water to be used to wash their hair? Water is in 2 quantities of 5 gallons each of W brand. When the staff told them that the salon water is clean enough for all client needs, S1 and S2 would reason out that they can not just entrust their hair with anything, and that as popular stars, they always have to keep up with a certain "image" from hair to toe. Yes, and to the extent that they will bring their own branded, distilled water to wash their hair. The staff of the popular salon was floored. But of course as professional as they are, the shock did not get the better of them.

With all the "throwing their weight around," someone asked if the sisters are at least generous in their tipping. The staff quickly retorted, "Nah!"

The Language Reveals All

Image courtesy of www.dliflc.edu

At a press conference, young actress (YA1) came in late so the press and her co-actors in the teleserye started teasing her. YA1 is not known to be fussy when being interviewed so she did not really mind the joking. No matter how negative she might be at times, YA1 can be accommodating enough to reporters and has no qualms answering questions unless there are orders that she should not be so.

Then, a senior co-actor, who plays a significant role in the drama, said that she was late because YA1 and her co-star, young actress (YA2), both came from a bar the night before. Everyone present-- the stars and the press -- knew that senior actor said that in jest and did not mean anything malicious at all. But YA1 answered the senior actor to defend herself. Upon hearing YA1, a younger co-actor CO remarked, "Patola?" The press was shocked and couldn't believe what they just heard. "What? CO spoke in Bekimon?" was all they could utter. The audience likewise gave a confused looked as they were not expecting OA to gayspeak.

Well, is this unguarded moment a sign of the heavy influence of the bekis around CO, or is this a revelation of what really is in him?

At a dinner in a restaurant, some diners were turned off by the smelly incident that happened to one of the actors starring in a series. That night, muscular actor (MA) was eating more than what his fellow diners thought he could. MA is known to be very particular with his body and is noted for being fit. In fact, MA was one of those who made a well-buffed body a trend among the young generation of actors. Anyhow, MA just kept eating and eating. Perhaps the food was really delicious or he was just happy that night that MA kept binging.

Since it seemed that he almost finished their orders, obviously MA over ate. So, with that combination, something immediately did not agree with his stomach. Lo, he went to the restroom and stayed there for at least half an hour. As a celebrity, his entry into the restroom was not unnoticed by the other restaurant goers who saw him and waited for him to step out. Those who had the guts to enter the restroom heard the rumbling and smelled the result of MA’s gluttony. Embarrassed by the disappearance of MA, his friends at his dinner table started to step out of the restaurant one by one. Finally, when MA rejoined his friends, he was all sweaty, and perhaps, relieved.

What’s the learning here? Simple, keep to your diet, and avoid pigging-out on food that can make your stomach grumble. Lucky for MA he was in a restaurant. Imagine the horrors had he been on location. Then, he would have had a similar experience as this other young actor (but that’s another story.)

Odd Request from the Speaker

 Image courtesy of www.cutcaster.com

Anyone who plunges into showbiz, fashion, politics, and entertainment in general gets some sort of a celebrity status and as such should be prepared by the realities that go with it. To be hounded by paparazzi is one, especially in a country that is so photograph-crazy. The fans believe stars should at least try to be accommodating for simple requests such as photo-ops, also known as photo opportunity. In all fairness, most celebrities do try to be nice and cool about it.

However, this celebrity (BC) is an exemption. BC led a quiet and low profile life prior to winning in a national contest. Her unique name and impressive academic credentials helped her clinched the title. But her sudden rise to fame was something she obviously did not expect. When she came home after winning in a major contest abroad, it was expected that BC would get some invitations to grace some events, personal appearances in television shows, some on-the-spot interviews, and the like. But trouble started when BC became a little uncooperative. Some people witnessed that BC did not hesitate to show how tired, uncomfortable and unhappy she was every time she felt like it. In other words, people did not see in her the charm that she should have shown at that point.

BC always reasoned out that she did not want to be in the limelight. Smart as she is, shouldn't she have known better? Joining a major contest and winning it, didn't she know that she would reap the unwanted attention after? Yet, BC obviously abhors it. To make matters worse, her attitude has spilled over to her public appearances. Not too long ago, she was invited to be a guest speaker in an annual tourism event. Everyone in the audience was excited as it’s not often that they get to hear from a "beauty and brains" celebrity like her.

But all the excitement was short-lived, after all. It turned out, even before BC took to the stage to speak,  participants were told that no pictures of her would be taken. The order from the management was to be strictly enforced. Thus security was tightened when BC entered, and the audience unwillingly obliged to the order.

The disappointed participants couldn't help but wonder why BC would give such an order. They felt it was so off since the other speakers, one of them a more popular and influential media practitioner did not and would probably not give such a silly request. So, what's with BC? If she is not willing to make even little sacrifices, shouldn't she have opted to stay home for good so as not to rock her highly prized privacy?

Smart as she is, it seems that propriety is something that BC has to relearn.

Pinoy Pride


Reliable sources say that this Reality TV Star (RTVS) is doing a joint project with an International Pop Star from Pampanga (PSP). A song? A music video? Let’s jess say that the duo will definitely make people jump with their rumored anthem-ish song. By the way, both are famous Fil-Am artists. Hmm…

Securing His Place in Her Network

Image courtesy of www.hacking-class.blogspot.com

An influential network insider (INI) was dragged into a controversy sometime ago, but the flames were immediately put out before it became haywire. The controversy was not the doing of INI, but she was dragged because the parties involved were close to her personally and professionally. Because of INI's  influence, the issue was not played up.

Meanwhile, seasoned actor (SA) has done the rounds of almost all the networks and almost all possible roles in all possible movie and television genre. In short, SA has had a colourful career that is as colourful as his personal life. Earlier, when SA faded out of the limelight, everyone thought it was for good as he seemed bent on retiring from showbiz. But years passed, SA was always lured with good offers for him to return to acting. He repeatedly turned it down, until an offer came that made him decided to return with the family. However, SA got involved in another career controversy that almost made him leave again. But the call of acting and performing was too great, that he decided to stay. The younger generation might not know him anymore, but SA is still so handsome and with a look that seems to defy aging.

What then is the connection between INI and SA? In a network event, SA was seen coming out of the hotel room of INI early morning. SA, regardless of his age is still every colegiala’s dream, and no woman would probably turn him down. INI is not bad looking either. Allegedly, a rumour is going around that SA and INI hooked up for their own personal reasons? SA is with INI so he can be secure in his career with the network, while INI is in there to get back at a very close person who had betrayed her.

Is this a case of “as long as we’re not caught, it’s perfectly all right?” Please abide by the GUIDELINES in writing comments if you want them to be posted. Initials and comments that are too explicit will not be accepted.

She’s Turning Over a New Leaf

Image courtesy of www.blogaaholic.com

At the peak of her career, versatile actress VA savored everything she had - fame, money, endorsements, movies, colorful lovelife, and legions of fans who were willing to defend her at all costs. As age caught up with her, she succumbed to the domestic life and raised her children. Once in a while, she would appear on television which was welcomed by her fans and the curious public. However, the downtrend in local cinema and many changes in her personal life affected her career. Eventually, VA went into hiatus, and the public thought she was going the way of great Hollywood legends like a Garbo.

But that wasn't so, her rare appearances were really the result of the low ratings of her tv and movie projects, bad habits, and domestic problems. VA has been beset with all sorts of rumors, the most recent one tested her character because the issue raised public awareness against her. Still, she was VA, and the industry opened its doors for her.

As for the public, the reaction to her projects is quite ambivalent. While her recent movie broke box office records, her next one was a disappoinment at the tills.

At one point, the networks gambled on her. She had good materials but the public did not bite and the ratings suffered. Soon, rumors that she was being difficult to work with were circulating. And now with a career that is not as bankable and hounded by negative image, VA is said to be doing the rounds of the networks asking for projects to at least help pay her bills. Some networks could not afford the risk and turned down feelers from her camp. Finally, she was down to the last network. VA allegedly said that a lower talent fee would not matter as long as she has work. The network gave in and offered her a project on one condition: if she gets difficult again during tapings, her character will be immediately vanished.

Will this new project pave the way for VA to reclaim her lost glory? Will the public give her a second chance? Very soon, we will know the answers.

Misguided Miss

 Image courtesy of www.abbzzw.com

If she does not watch out, this pretty daughter PD might just add up to the rising statistics of teenage pregnancies in the country. PD has one of controversial parents in the social scene. Though she chooses to be quiet in her own world, it just can't be helped that she is also written about because of her relations. Anyway, since she was born into affluence, she has acquired the flamboyance and expensive tastes of her parents, particularly her mother. Young as she is, PD is already into expensive things, branded stuff and luxurious travels, with or without her parents in tow. Needless to say, she goes to an expensive school as well.

In school, she is treated just like an ordinary student, as is wont in most multi-cultural schools. So ordinary that PD probably thinks no one would mind whatever she does inside the campus. But oh how mistaken she is. Because only recently, she was seen doing a heavy PDA (public display of affection) inside the campus. Apparently, the young miss has a relationship with someone enrolled in the same school. For one so young, that was such a major concern. Even older people get unwelcome stares when seen doing it publicly. How much more for a girl like her, and within school premises at that?

Maybe it's about time that the busy parents get to stop for a while, take a break, and smell the flowers with their daughter. Don't you think so?

Who is PD? Who are her parents? Please abide by the GUIDELINES in writing comments if you want them to be posted. Initials and comments that are too explicit will not be accepted.
