Act Out and Aim High

If Confused Singer’s drumbeaters and handlers DH are to be believed, CS has no gender problems as some people would like to believe. DH insists that CS is 100% woman, girl, mujer – bar none.

But how true are reports going around that CS is allegedly gay? Not a few articles online say she is indeed one. The NBSB (no boyfriend since birth) CS might be very expressive of her many showbiz crushes, especially of the ones she got paired with in her movies and teleserye – but except for one or two, those showbiz crushes of hers are not really taking her seriously.

The cynics will always have something to say. They contend that CS boyish movements alone are already leading. And her presumed crushes are all reportedly only for publicity to downplay the real issue. Yet, it shows that the public in unconvinced. There was in fact a report saying that she was allegedly frequenting a place somewhere up north to visit a “girl friend.” It was also something that bothered her handlers since the frequent visits to the north was affecting her schedules a lot.

That is why even reports of her many crushes and alleged holding hands with an attractive popular singer did not prosper because what sticks like glue in the public mind is her real sexual preference.

But those privy to her say that CS press releases regarding her fondness for the actors stars mentioned are all but gimmicks to play safe, very much like a career move to keep it from affecting her status in the biz, especially her coming up musical milestone. In a sense, CS and DH are quite careful not to jeopardize the network’s plans for her.

All told, unbelievers will have a lot of waiting to do - as no honest confession ala Charice is likely to happen anytime soon.

Raymart Santiago: I Did Not Abuse Claudine Barretto


Actor Raymart Santiago on Tuesday denied committing any abuse against his estranged wife, actress Claudine Barretto, who has accused him of causing her “all kinds of stress” since 2005.

Barretto, 34, on Monday filed a petition before the Marikina Regional Trial Court for temporary protection order (TPO) against Santiago that would prevent the actor from getting within 300 meters of her and their children Sabina, 9, and Santino, 6.

“I never spoke of what’s really happening within our family to anyone, but I’ve decided to break my silence now because of the derogatory remarks I’ve received [from Barretto]. I’m doing this for the sake of our children,” Santiago said in Filipino via a statement sent to the Inquirer.

“It is not true that I’ve abused the mother of my kids in any way. As a father, I will never do anything that would harm my kids. I’ve never lifted a hand against any of them.”

The 40-year-old actor added that people who know him well could prove what kind of a father he is.

“These people could also prove that [Barretto] is capable of making up stories,” he pointed out. “Again, I strongly deny her accusations. The truth will come out eventually. I will answer all accusations in court at the proper time.”

Santiago and Barretto tied the knot on March 27, 2006. The rumor that the couple has broken up began circulating in 2011, after Barretto was seen on a TV report breaking down in tears in a bank after being told that the money she was about to withdraw had been withdrawn earlier by another party—presumably her husband with whom she shared the account. The couple denied the split.

Santiago and Barretto got involved in another controversy in May 2012, when the couple, along with some companions, allegedly ganged up on veteran journalist Ramon Tulfo at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3. They filed a physical injury complaint against the Inquirer columnist.

Santiago was last seen in the recently concluded afternoon drama series “Home Sweet Home” on GMA 7. Barretto’s last project with the Kapuso network was the primetime series “Iglot” that aired in 2011.

Poll: Team Claudine Barretto vs Team Raymart Santiago


Saying she has had enough of “all kinds of stress” due to “a series of events” she has been dealing with since 2005, actress Claudine Barretto asked the court, on Monday, to order her husband, actor Raymart Santiago, to stay away from her and their children.

Barretto, who according to her lawyer Ferdinand Topacio was weeping all throughout the proceeding, specifically asked the Marikina Regional Trial Court to issue a temporary protection order (TPO) that would prevent her estranged husband from getting within 300 meters of her and their household.

Barretto refused to talk to reporters as Topacio explained that the petition would allow a judge to issue a TPO immediately while scheduling hearings to determine whether a permanent protection order should be granted.

“The important component of the relief is that we are pleading [with] the court to tell Raymart to stay away from my client, their household and their kids… within a certain radius of 300 meters,” he said.

“Our petition also asks Raymart to stop communicating with the kids as they try to settle their differences,” he added.

Barretto’s case was later raffled off to the Marikina RTC Branch 192, a family court presided over by Judge Geraldine Macaraig. The court refrained from releasing further details, citing the confidentiality given to such sensitive cases.

For his part, Topacio said the actress had been thinking of filing the petition for some time although she made up her mind only last weekend.

“This was precipitated by a series of events which I am not at liberty to discuss. She has been enduring acts since 2005 even as she wanted to make their marriage work,” the lawyer added.

When asked for more details, Topacio said the actress was subjected to “all kinds of stress—physical, emotional, psychological, even economic stress.”

He also said that although the case had been filed, Barretto still had mixed feelings about the whole thing.

“She decided just over the weekend and even then, she was ambivalent [about] the matter. Even after the filing, she was still crying. We were coaxing her to eat something because she hasn’t eaten anything since last night,” he added.

Topacio said that Barretto had held back against filing the case because she knew it would be her last resort as it would not help repair their marriage.

“She felt she had no other recourse. She realizes, as she confided to me, that this is the point where there is no more turning back and that this is the beginning of the end of the marriage,” he noted.

However, he could not say if her action would lead to an annulment case. “We’re taking this one step at a time. Anyway, our allegations in the petition do not involve the validity of marriage. It’s more of the stress factor which escalates the conflict between husband and wife.”

Topacio also revealed that Barretto had sought the services of a clinical psychologist to give her counseling to help her cope with what she has been going through.

Only recently, the actress revealed in media interviews that Santiago had not been living with her and their children for at least a month.

More than a year ago, the couple presented a united front when they faced off with Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Ramon Tulfo in court following a brawl at the airport, which led to the filing of cases and countercharges between both parties.

A Letter from JP Morgan CEO to Gold Diggers


A reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan to a pretty girl seeking a rich husband

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:

Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here.

I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above.

You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.
My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married?

I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you?

Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit.

If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden(?), $250k annual income is not enough.

I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:

1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches are only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who don’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys.
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

Ms. Pretty

A philosophical reply from CEO of J.P. Morgan:

Dear Ms. Pretty,

I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse your situation as a professional investor.

My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.

From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.

Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty" and “money" : Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square.

However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year.

Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worse 10 years later.

By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position".

If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased".

Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income.This has better chance than finding a rich fool.

Hope this reply helps.

J.P. Morgan CEO

Looking for Mr. Right

Image courtesy of

Two very visible celebrities might be the next couple to watch out for - or maybe not. Stylish Girl SG is allegedly often seen at the dressing room of a weekly show and dressing up Dancing Hunk What makes it odd? Two reasons: While DH is allegedly single, SG is reportedly on a committed relationship. SG’s styling and dressing DH is reportedly on a pro bono basis, meaning she is not doing it on PR.

Her presence in most of DH’s shows and gigs kind of baffles some people around because of her and DH’s respective status and age gap, if you get the drift. DH maybe single, but he is reportedly seeing someone. Photos of them together are on the social networking sites.

On the part of SG, observers are quite bewildered why she seems not to have a really lasting and serious relationship. Most girls even envy her that despite not being so pretty, she had dated quite a number of the most eligible bachelors in town. Her friends come to her defense against her bashers saying that with all the dirt thrown at her, SG is a charming and loyal friend.

But her bashers just won’t stop especially when SG unabashedly flirted online with a Hot Media guy HM. At that time, SG was really bent on pursuing HM, but he politely turned her down and her advances – something that her bashers did not let pass and gloatingly threw unprintables at her.

Deliberate or not, SG seems to invite critics to herself. While others say she thrives on it remains to be proven. At any rate, she knows and believes she has what it takes to make it – and she is definitely walking her talk.

On the other hand, if DH won’t watch out, he might be dragging himself into SG’s net – something his new girl won’t be happy about. On the other hand, only DH can control girls like SG to stop ululating over him.

JC de Vera is now Kapamilya! You read it first on Fashion PULIS!

Image courtesy of

It was just yesterday when FP posted a blind item (BI) regarding an actor who is about to make a network transfer to Kapamilya soon. JC de Vera is the "underrated actor" UA in this BI

Then being handled by Annabelle Rama, JC was considered quite a big star in Kapuso network. Until Annabelle deemed it wise to seek TV5 for JC after her controversial feud with then Kapuso's powerful executive PE, Wilma Galvante.

It was fruitful move to Kapatid, but only for a while - as JC's projects slowly waned when bigger stars continued to pile in the Kapatid network. The presence of Ms. Galvante as the new head of TV5's entertainment division further compounded JC's woes, along with Annabelle Rama's decision not to renew anymore their management contract.

Where to go? In the BI, it said - UA will indeed move to another network. So there you go.

Kapamilya provided the much-needed shot in the arm that will give UA’s dying career a new lease on life. This morning ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio welcomed newest Kapamilya JC de Vera. Now under the helm of a new manager, Leo Dominguez, JC inked a two-year-contract with Kapamilya in the presence of several network executives.

Yes it is, once again - your Fashion PULIS is first!

The Fun Buddies

Image courtesy of

Bombshell Girl BG and Lonely Boy colleague LB maybe in for a real relationship, but at the moment BG and LB seem to take it easy - not so serious affair – just having fun. BG, a woman of the world spares no one who catches her desire. She is known in the as a “playful” and she seems to be proud of it.

BG has incurred the ire of quite a lot of people in the industry for being too forward and crafty for comfort. BG tries her best not be out-scooped by anyone, especially with arriving foreign artists. At any rate, and to be fair to her, she makes up for the annoyance by trying to be charming and friendly – knowing that she is in the business where she has to watch her back often, for self-preservation.

One of those whom BG is so friendly with is LB, a veteran media personality who also has his own share of controversy. The two may have struck something, as they are often caught exchanging sweet glances at each other at work. For all its worth, BG doesn’t seem to mind, even the age gap.

One weekend while BG was cued on her radio show, LB was spotted within the vicinity of the station. People wondered out loud why was LB at the area when he doesn’t have any work or event on weekends. Turned out, LB was there for BG. Immediately after her show, BG was seen walking towards LB’s room and spent some few moments there.

Soon after, BG was spotted emerging from LB’s room with disheveled hair and looking happy. Surely, the loneliness of singlehood must be fast catching up on LB.

The Very Determined, Angsty, and Gritty Talents

Image courtesy of

Several years ago, underrated actor UA was the toast of his network - looks, talent, and popularity, he had it then. However, UA realized that he would always be third in line as the network had two prized and more popular hunks. A major incident with a powerful executive PE ended his career in the network, and severed his ties with PE. Thus, UA bolted out and moved to another network (AN).

As promised, UA was given solo projects in AN. However, his fame slowly waned as his projects did not generate the expected viewership. Adding to his woes, AN continued to recruit other bigger-named celebrities, and worse, AN hired PE for a position that will affect the future of UA. Poor UA, his contract with his manager had already expired, and there is no news as to the plan of AN for him.

Unlike UA, reclusive actor RA was extremely successful in his transfer to a big network BN. As soon as he moved, BN used its public relations machinery to generate interest in RA, and he was immediately cast in a teleserye. In a few weeks time of airing, RA became a household name as the program was a big hit. However, RA was a disaster when it came to dealing with the press. He did not welcome questions about his life. After a not-so-encouraging second major project, RA shunned the press more.

While nothing has been heard about RA in the past weeks, stories circulated that he might be moving to another network.

While AN and UA are recognized actors, gritty host GH has made a name by being a fixed face in the hosting chores of his network. Regardless of the type of show, GH can stand on his own and deliver a competent job. However, as his network seems to be bent on refocusing its programs, GH is not as visible these days. Sometime ago, GH posted something in his social networking account that was interpreted as his way of saying that he was about to move on to something new.

Behind every cloud has a silver lining, but fate has something different for UA, RA, and GH. UA will indeed move to another network, where he and RA will do a show. Thus, this project will end speculations that RA might move again. RA still has a live contract with his current network, and thus, leaving is not an option. Finally, as for GH, well, his emoting spiel did not generate anything. In other words, GH stays put for now.

Who are UA, RA, and GH? Will they find that elusive satisfaction in their careers soon or will showbiz be better off without them?
