Masking the Secret

Image courtesy of

When talented performer (TP) landed a slot in a contest, he got attention because of his talent and his looks. Having mixed lineage, TP was the epitome of a hunk, with his defined muscles and abs. Other than his musical talent, TP shocked his fans when he decided to do a very daring scene in one of his movies. He had no qualms about baring a part of his body. The viewers appreciated his acting and that daring scene.

Meanwhile, commercial model (CM) gained a following when he had a very risqué performance on stage a few months ago. His close-up photos showed that he only donned a towel and did not wear any underwear when he romped on the catwalk. Sometimes, male models wear something to cover their privates as they tease the crowd in a fashion event. However, CM dared what no shy male personality would do.

Rumors of questionable sexuality have been hounding TP, but his camp has denied such rumors. TP has been careful in his appearances and in references to being gay. Although gays rule in the local showbiz, the out gays are usually flamboyant, whereas hunk actors and models allegedly comprise gays in the closets. Thus, closeted hunk gays often go far away to places where they hide from the malicious eyes of the public.

Unfortunately, the smoke that something is happening between TP and CM got thicker, and the flames were not extinguished as the couple was seen in a rendezvous in a very popular Asian destination. Thus, their togetherness confirmed that TP and CM are indeed seeing each other. Obviously, neither can come out as TP is being built up by a major network, and any reference to confirming his homosexuality can spell doom for his career.

Will we ever see the day when young actors openly admit their sexuality?

Willie Revillame to Return to TV in 2014

TV host plans new show on network 'with most viewers'

Willie Revillame said he is planning to revive his self-produced variety show, preferably on a network that has wide viewership, sometime in 2014.

The 52-year-old host revealed the plan in an interview with sports journalist Snow Badua on the sidelines of the Pacquiao-Rios bout in Macau last Sunday.

Asked what his fans can expect from him after the end of his noontime show "Wowowillie" in October, Revillame quipped, laughing, "Sa kanto-kanto lang muna ako! Sa tabi-tabi lang muna!"

"Hindi pa naman," he added, as to whether he's looking to switch networks, "kasi one month pa lang naman ako nagbabakasayon eh."

"Siguro next year, early next year," he said.

Revillame's "Wowowillie" aired its final episode last October 12 after seven months on air. In his first announcement of the program's end in May, Revillame said it would mark his retirement from television.

But in his closing lines in the program's finale, Revillame said, "I will return!"

The host was asked on Sunday which network he hopes to carry his comeback show. He answered: "Hindi ko pa alam."

"Syempre pag-aaralan ko mabuti kung saan mas maraming makakapanood sa programang gusto kong gawin," he said.

In September, Revillame aired his frustration about the limited viewership of his program on TV5. "No matter how good your show is, if the signal is not strong, people won't watch you," he said at the time.

Revillame transferred to the Manny V. Pangilinan-owned network in 2010, after the controversial end of his five-year program with ABS-CBN, "Wowowee."

His first TV5 show, "Willing Willie," similarly drew controversies, among them involving allegations of child abuse when a 6-year-old contestant was supposedly made to perform as a "macho dancer."

The controversy, which involved advertisers pulling out from the show, prompted Revillame to announce it would go on hiatus. A month later, it resumed as the reformatted "Wiltime Bigtime."

Yet another revamp as "Wowowillie" marked the program's transfer to a noontime slot in January this year.

Still on the subject of a possible network transfer for his planned 2014 program, Revillame said on Sunday, "Kahit saan naman, pwede, basta maganda 'yung programa, 'di ba? Basta maganda 'yung project, basta makabigay ng saya araw-araw at makakatulong."

"'Yun ang importante," he said.

Marc Anthony's Ex- Wife Dayanara Torres Drags Jennifer Lopez into Child Support Battle

Marc Anthony's ex-wife is looking for way more child support from the Latin superstar, and she's allegedly citing the singer's treatment of his other ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez, in the court documents.

Former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres wants a nearly tenfold increase in child support from Anthony, bumping her $13,000 a month up to $112,000 a month, according to the New York Post's Page Six.

The exes, who have two children together, split in 2004 after four years of marriage. During his divorce proceedings with Torres, Anthony supposedly claimed he had money issues, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. The week after the split was finalized, Anthony married Lopez, giving the "Live It Up" songstress an 8.5-carat engagement ring worth between $4 million and $8 million.

Today, he allegedly makes at least $1.25 million a month and pays Lopez -- who earned $52 million in 2012 alone -- a ton in child support for twins Max and Emme. Meanwhile, Torres says she's living in a small apartment in the Valley and that Anthony never sees their kids. She alleges that one time he said he couldn't visit because of work, but then she saw him on television at a beach with Lopez.

Anthony is expected to fight the former beauty queen in court, Page Six reported.

“Marc has paid every penny, well over $13,000 a month,” the singer’s lawyer, Daniel Jaffe, said, adding the father “has paid for all of the kids’ schooling, band lessons, camps, and all medical and dental costs. Virtually everything.”

The 45-year-old Grammy winner is currently dating 21-year-old Topshop heiress Chloe Green.

Poll: Who among the One Direction Boys Has the Best Chance of Going Solo?

We’ve all seen it happened.

Teenage girls (and sometimes, even boys) screaming their names, buying their albums and watching their concerts. Then, out of nowhere, they break apart and only one of them becomes successful in pursuing a career in music entertainment industry.

After NSYNC, Westlife and Backstreet Boys, a new boy band from the UK becomes an international singing sensation. With its members Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, London-based English pop boy band One Direction takes the whole world by storm with their popular hits like "What Makes You Beautiful", "Live While We're Young” and “One Way or Another”.

The question now is: Who among them has the best chance of going solo?

OPTIONAL: Join the discussion this Saturday at the PH’s first ever social media music show, SPINNation.

The Great Pretender

A Popular Show PS which airs seasonally will soon grace Philippine television once again. As in the past, it will have an overwhelming number of candidates all over the country who will stop at nothing to be able to pass and be part of the show.

One of its mainstays is a Celebrity Performer CP. Her job gets her to be with the final Set of Candidates SC who will be together throughout the entire duration of the PS. As such, each SC gets to see CP and the Other Mainstays OM of the program up close on a regular, face to face basis.

Each taping day of PS is a monumental task for the whole production team. Nothing is compromised when it comes to details and logistics to come up with a flawless product to be shown each episode. Taping takes so many hours with no room for mistakes, making sure that all participants do their part to stick to the show's format and implementation.

CP and OM get to mingle with the SC’s for a long period and expectedly, friendships develop as a matter of course. SC's can only be thankful for the privilege to be with the likes of celebrities CP and OM.

Now that PS would be on tv once again, past PS Winners PW were called in and given special participation for the show's preliminary/initial episodes.

Before taping started, OM's did welcome the PW's with open arms and were excited like long lost friends. Needless to say, it was a pleasant surprise for the PW's. They were all humbled by the OM's gesture of welcome – except for CP!

PW's wouldn't know how to react or behave whenever CP was around as she would make them feel that they don't exist, behaving like she doesn't know anyone of them. Once again, CP displays what she is really made of whether in or out of the house.

Like or Dislike: A Scary Wedding Proposal


Cameras recorded an apparent hostage-taking inside a restaurant in Quezon City last Saturday, which turned out to be an elaborate prank ending as an actual wedding proposal.

The video of the prank, which was uploaded on YouTube by producer Tootoots Leyesa, shows a couple browsing items at the Van Gogh Is Bipolar restaurant.

According to the introduction shown in the video, the footage was taken "on the evening of 23 November 2013."

The set-up: an armed man being chased by the police, played by film actor Leon Miguel, goes inside the restaurant and takes the boyfriend hostage. "Faced with the possibility of dying, the hostage had one simple wish," the introduction read.

Taken from two angles -- one from the restaurant's CCTV camera and another from a hidden camera -- the video shows the chilling skit of a violent hostage-taker shouting and cursing at the pleading man

"Damay-damay na 'to, [expletive]," the irate hostage-taker says as he tugs at the man's collar.

"Wala naman kaming ginagawa sa inyo, eh," protests the hostage, who is sitting on a chair. "Kakain lang kami, o. Bigyan niyo man lang ako ng pagkakataon... Hindi ko pa nga napapakasalan 'tong girlfriend ko, eh."

The man's pleading gets a violent reaction from the suspect.

Although not seen as she is seated in a corner of the restaurant, the woman is heard telling her boyfriend to stop talking. "Babe, huwag ka na magsalita!"

The boyfriend, however, continues, "Gusto ko lang pakasalan 'yung girlfriend ko! Huwag ganito!"

The suspect then appears to push the man towards his girlfriend. Still in character, the hostage-taker hands the man a ring and allows him to propose.

The boyfriend quips, "Puwede bang hulugan 'to?"

He continues, now addressing his girlfriend, "It has been a roller coaster ride for the past four, five years for us... I don't know the perfect timing for this, but I think right now is the right time for this -- to ask you: Will you be my partner in case of a zombie apocalypse?"

"May I have the honor to be your husband? Will you marry me?" the man asks, now kneeling on the floor in front of his girlfriend.

Wiping tears as she laughs, the woman says yes.

A number of men, who appear to be accomplices in the prank, then emerge as they applaud and congratulate the newly engaged couple.

"Ang galing niyo umarte!" says the woman, still wiping tears.

As of writing, the YouTube video of the proposal had over 5,000 views.

Leyesa, the producer of the video, told in an e-mail on Wednesday that the couple, therapist Calvin Leorna and kids' yoga teacher Annabelle Jay-Ar Trono, have been together for over four years.

They are planning to get married in late December.

Please Keep It Clean

Image courtesy of

An Upscale Hotel UH located in a vacation city was going to have a corporate event. UH made an offer to a hunk actor and commissioned him to be the host of the event. Unfortunately, hunk actor had to beg off because of a very hectic schedule. UH then turned to a Celebrity Host CH for the job, but UH was extremely shocked and discouraged by the talent fee being charged. CH quoted a very big amount which UH believed was already the rate for big stars for which CH was not - and is not.

They then turned to getting the services of a once Popular Personality who had moved into a new career when hosting offers were slowly getting scarce. PP thus accepted UH's offer to host its corporate event. Expectedly, his talent fee was the lowest from the others who were previously considered - a fair amount at least.

Apart from the fee, UH provided PP with free hotel accommodation so he could rest before and after the event. The event went well and PP had a good time. The next day, it was time for check out and PP's departure. Hotel staff sent PP well wishes and thanked him.

However, when the staff went to his room for the clean-up, they were reportedly shocked by what they saw. PP's room was unbelievably dirty, his sheets were all soiled and muddy (?). They couldn't begin to think where the mud came from. The sheets were also littered with several strands of genital hair. PP even left a pair of socks that smelled oh so foul like no other. The staff just couldn’t believe their eyes - and nose - at such revelation.

Certainly, it was not the kind of image that they have of PP. Although he maybe past his prime, PP is still considered a celebrity, hence the staff kind of expected a more pleasant personality of him.

Oh well, stories like this sometimes become understandable if you consider the person's history. Could PP be still living the life he had not too long ago? Your guess might be as good as mine.
