KC Concepcion's "may the best man win" begins, could it be Piolo Pascual

Yes, folks! KC is not committing herself to anybody yet because she wants to make sure that the best man will win her heart - and it's Piolo Pascual's turn. But according to Piolo, he almost courted KC before she left for Paris to pursue her education and this time, he plan to be more serious about it.
The two are scheduled to fly to Paris in April to shoot some of the scenes for their first project together. KC knows that she will definitely enjoy the whole trip just like Piolo. “Of course, of course, I am excited. I trust PJ to take care of me and hawak-kamay kami dun, kaming dalawa lang ang magkasama dun eh,” she exclaimed. Does the beginning of their soap also mean that she will forget about her former leading man Richard Gutierrez? “No, siyempre special naman po si Chard [para sa akin]. Pero right now ang focus ko po si Piolo. Siya yung priority ko ngayon,” she frankly stated. [ABS-CBN/Rachelle Siazon]

Boy Abunda's reaction to Vicky Belo's insults

Boy Abunda was obviously upset when he gave his reactions at Showbiz News Ngayon (SNN) to Vicky Belo’s nasty remarks using Boy Abunda and Dingdong Dantes as an example to describe her expertise in beauty business: “kung gusto ninyong maging kamukha ni Boy Abunda sa Calayan kayo pumunta at kung gusto naman ninyong maging kamukha si Dingdong Dantes sa Belo kayo magpunta”. No matter how hard Boy tried, he was not able to hide his anger as his throat started to dry, voice started to shake, and seemingly trying to hold back tears too. It's obvious that Boy was terribly hurt at Vicky Belo's comment. Even Boy’s mother expressed her concern about the issue. A lot of people gave support to Boy as they try to find a reason to understand why in the world Vicky said what she said. Obviously, no reconciliation happened between them before they reached out to Vicky to guest at their newest show, SNN, as in why invite an enemy to your show if you haven’t reconciled.

Why Vicky Belo insulted Boy Abunda

In her most recent interview, the famous beauty expert Vicky Belo made a comment insulting Boy Abunda: “if you’d like to look like Boy Abunda, you go to Calayan, but if you’d like to look like Dingdong Dantes, you go to Belo”. This issue spread like wild fires in the showbiz world. Why would Belo say such thing? During the 1st interview with Kris Aquino through SNN, a lot of people noticed that Vicky is still nursing some pains over Aquino and Abunda’s move to Calayan considering their friendships goes back ten plus years. It’s obvious that this caused Belo deep deep pain in her heart that finally came out of her mouth, and probably said what she had wanted to say all these years.

KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez "When I Met You" result

Ayon kay Alfie Lorenzo ng Abante:
UMIIRAL na naman ang inggit mula sa ibang kampo riyan, at heto at nagpapakalat sila na kesyo hindi raw tinalo ng When I Met U ang unang movie nina Richard Gutierrez at KC Concepcion. In short, sinisiraan ng mga inggitero-inggitera riyan ang KC at Richard.

Ay naku, deadma na lang ang Regal Entertainment at GMA Films diyan, dahil para sa kanila, lumampas pa sa inaasahan nilang kita ang kinita ng When I Met U.

Aba, nung Valentine’s Day alone lang daw, the Richard and KC-starrer earned a whopping 25 million pesos in total gross, and is now on its way towards a record-breaking performance at the box-office.

Sa tantiya ni Annabelle, naka-80 million pesos na sa loob ng isang linggo ang When I Met U.

Anyway, ang importante rin para sa mga producers ng movie ng dalawa, lahat ng nanood ng movie nila ay umuwi sa kanilang mga bahay na masaya.

Showing pa rin ang When I Met U sa mga sinehan.

Willie Revillame has a non-showbiz girlfriend

Willie has a non-showbiz girlfriend that he has been keeping private for almost a year now. She is a young college student from Bulacan named Nadine Ignacio, who was once a contestant at a Wowowee game show.

For the first time, Revillame revealed that he is going out with a non-showbiz girlfriend but declined to give further details about the girl.

“Kailangan pa bang pag-usapan yon? Kasi ayaw kong madamay yon na simpleng babae lang yan sa aking kinakatayuan kasi nag-aaral at yung pamilya niya ay hindi naman showbiz ‘yan,” he said.

Revillame is, of course, referring to his mysterious date during the 2nd Annual Star Magic Ball. The girl was identified as Nadine Ignacio, a student from Bulacan who also became a contestant in one of Wowowee’s games.

“Simple lang yon kahit ano ang ibigay ko doon ayaw talaga. Basta kung anuman ang gusto kong ibigay (sasabihin niya) ‘Hindi ko kailangan yan basta ang kailangan ko lang ikaw.'

"Sabi ko nga: 'Bakit mo ba ako nagustuhan?' Sabi niya: ‘Iba ka e iba,” he said.

Revillame said his current sweetheart does not get jealous easily. He said he also gave the girl some guidelines so that their relationship would last.

"I told her: 'Don't text me, don't look for me and don't nag me.' If you want our relationship to last and you don't want me to leave you, it's that simple and she does it," he said.[ABS-CBN News]

Kris Aquino and Dra. Vicki Belo reconcile on Showbiz News Ngayon

Both Kris and Boy reconciled with Vicky Belo in an interview at SNN last night. It wasn't clear what went wrong in their relationships or what did Vicky do to cause Kris and Boy to move to Dr. Calayan. In the interview, you can feel the hurts they caused Vicky. Here is the full report of Napoleon Quintos.

Sa exclusive ng Showbiz News Ngayon ay nagkaharap na sina Kris Aquino at Dra. Vicki Belo matapos ang matagal na panahong hindi pag-uusap.Bago ang interview ay inamin ni Dra. Vicki na kabado siya sa muling pagharap kay Kris, ngunit excited din siyang makita ang TV host dahil miss na niya ito.“Lagi ko naman sinasabi na nami-miss na kita.Napakasaya mong tao.I learned a lot from you…like the best hair, the best feng shui (laughs).”Nagsilbing tulay sa nasabing pag-uusap ang common friend ng dalawa na si Willie Revillame na kamakailan lamang ay nakapanayam ni Kris sa engrandeng yate ng Wowowee host.

Nagsanga ang landas ng dalawang dating magkaibigan nang umalis si Kris sa poder ni Vicki at lumipat sa ibang beauty clinic.Dahil na rin sa hindi pag-uusap ay inakala ng marami na nagkaroon ng samaan ng loob sina Kris at Dra. Vicki.Pero ikinuwento ni Kris na kahit sino man ang magtanong sa kanya ay lagi niyang sinasabi na wala siyang galit kay Dra. Vicki.Pero ang ‘Doctor to the Stars,’ umaming nasaktan sa paglipat ni Kris.“I got hurt with you too.Nag-text ka.Ang ganda ng break natin.‘Thank you, doktora, for everything.I really love my body.’And then lumabas ‘yung billboard mo (ang tagline) ‘I deserve better.’(Natanong ko) akala ko ba okay kami?Kilala kita.Kung hindi mo gusto ‘yung copy sasabihin mo at hindi nila ilalabas ‘yun.Ang sabi ko bakit pa siya nag thank you for everything?”Ngunit agad namang nagpaliwanag si Kris, “In my total defense.Have I ever thanked anybody else for any body work?”Agad naman itong napagtanto ni Dra. Vicki.

Lumamig din ang pakikisama ni Dra. Vicki sa matalik na kaibigan ni Kris na si Boy Abunda at ito ay dahil din sa desisyon ni Boy na lumipat kay Dr. Manny Calayan, ang mahigpit na kumpetensya ni Dra. Vicki.Nagpadala ng mensahe si Boy kay Dra. Vicki sa pamamagitan ni Kris.Ayon kay Boy, sa kabila ng lahat ng nangyari, ni minsan ay hindi siya nagsalita ng masama laban kay Dra. Vicki, publicly man o privately.“I did get hurt.Well you (Kris) know naman what happened.You were right in the middle of everything.Thank you Boy for not saying anything bad about me.Neither did I say anything bad about him.It’s sad because it was a long friendship,” sabi Dra. Vicki.

Hindi naman maiiwasan na ang doktor na tanyag sa pagreretoke ang matanong kung siya mismo ay may ipinagawa na sa kanyang katawan.Buong kumpiyansa namang iniisa isa ni Dra. Vicki ang kanyang mga ipinaretoke, gaya ng mata, ilong, liposuction sa mga braso, binti, at tiyan, at botox sa magkabilang panga.Pero ang kanyang boobs ay nananatiling tunay at nagpa-breast reduction lang siya.

Abangan ang paglalahad ni Dra. Vicki sa mga tunay na pangyayari sa likod ng kanyang kontrobersyal na pakikipaghiwalay kay Dra. Hayden Kho.Biyernes ng gabi sa Showbiz News Ngayon pagkatapos ng Tayong Dalawa.

Catholics who supports abortion should know this

Like Nancy Pelosi, many Catholics do not really know their catholic faith and beliefs and needs to take more religious and spiritual teachings from their church leaders. You can't say you are a practicing Catholic but you are also an advocate for abortion. That is totally contradicting in every sense of the word because Christ is life and not death.

Gov. Panlilio gets anti-corruption award from Malacanang

If Gov. Panlilio is not doing a good job cleaning up Pampanga, why would Malacanang award him this honor? What's the accusation of "nag-hahari-harian si Gov. Among" by Mikey Arroyo for?

Panlilio, who is battling a recall election petition filed by allies of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, said the recognition was a “vindication.”

Pampanga Governor Eddie Panlilio receives a “Galing Pook” award for outstanding local government projects from President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in Malacañang on Thursday.

Here is the full report:

Pampanga gov gets anti-corruption award
By Joel Guinto
INQUIRER.net
First Posted 20:19:00 02/12/2009

MANILA, Philippines -- Beleaguered Pampanga Governor Eddie Panlilio received a “Galing Pook” award for his administration’s efforts to stamp out the corruption that has robbed the province of millions of pesos in revenues from quarrying operations.

Panlilio, who is battling a recall election petition filed by allies of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, said the recognition was a “vindication.”

The Catholic priest-on-leave received his award from Arroyo in Malacañang on Thursday. His Biyaya a Luluguran at Sisikapan Committee (Blessings are Treasured and Kept, Balas) is one of 10 “Galing Pook” awardees this year.

“For them to say that we are incompetent, [that] people [have] lost confidence in me, I feel vindicated,” Panlilio said after the ceremony.

Panlilio said he was “not bothered at all” by the efforts to push the recall election, and that he was willing to fight it out with his political opponents all the way up to the Supreme Court.

From P25 million yearly, Panlilio said revenues from quarrying operations over a one-year period shot up to P234 million during his watch.

“To me, this is very, very sweet. I’m very happy because this is the first time for the province to receive an award, and to receive it after only one year of being governor is sweet, sweet victory,” he said.

The 10 outstanding local government projects of “Galing Pook” for 2008 are:

1. Albay province -- Institutionalizing Disaster Preparedness and Management
2. Sultan Kudarat and South Cotabato provinces -- Multi-Sectoral Alliance for Allah Valley landscape Planning and Management
3. Sanito village in Ipil town, Zamboanga Sibugay province -- Restoring Peace and Order Through a Barangay Local Government Code
4. Cotabato province -- Children Advocates for Peace
5. Marikina City -- Service Without Delay Through Centralized Warehousing
6. Pampanga Province -- Turning Sand to Cash
7. Quezon City -- Turning Payatas into a Model Waste Disposal Facility
8. San Carlos City, Negros Occidental -- Moving Towards a Sustainable City
9. San Fernando City, Pampanga -- Governance as a Shared Responsibility
10. Taguig City -- Condo Living for the Urban Poor

Sarah Geronimo, John Lloyd crowned King and Queen of the Box Office 2008!

Sarah and John Lloyd is now officially the box-office King and Queen for 2008! Congratulations! But as expected, the very humble Sarah honored Ai Ai as the true box-office queen.

Yesterday, it was reported that Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz will be crowned Box-office King and Queen by the Guillermo Mendoza Awards for their movie A Very Special Love. Since the film is being pitted against Ai-Ai de las Alas’s Tanging Ina N’yong Lahat for the box office title, some are worried that tension would arise between the two.


When ABS-CBN.com caught up with Sarah though, she insisted that the country’s Queen of Comedy is more deserving of that title than herself. “Siyempre medyo na-bother po ako nung nalaman ko na may ganyang issue kasi katrabaho ko si Ms A. (referring to Ai-Ai). Kung sa akin nga lang po mas karapat-dapat talaga si Ms. A na tawaging Box Office Queen,” she said after the presscon of her movie You Changed My Life opposite John Lloyd Cruz. “Siyempre napakatagal na niya sa industriya at alam naman natin ang success ng Tanging Ina N’yong Lahat. Hindi naman sa ino-overlook ko yung success namin [sa A Very Special Love]. Kumbaga respeto na lang kay Ms. A,” she added.


As it happens, there are reports that Ai-Ai mentioned in previous interviews that she would be hurt if she fails to get the Box Office Queen award. “May nagsabi sa akin na parang [may issue nga daw involving the two of us]. Pero yung part na ‘yan hindi ko narinig. Basta parang ano lang, alam ni Ms. A na siya talaga yung Box Office Queen,” stated Sarah, who clearly didn’t want to talk about such rumors anymore. “Hindi ko ide-deny na nagkakaroon [ako] ng lungkot na may gano’ng issue. Pero I guess gano’n talaga. Kumbaga si Ms. Ai-Ai may ipinaglalaban siya so basta yun nirerespeto ko,” she stressed.


Apart from those intrigues, there is also pressure for Sarah to do better in You Changed My Life after the phenomenal success of her first film. But the young singer-actress refused to be daunted by it all. “Bawat eksena nandun yung tension eh, yung pressured ka. Pero katulad ng ginawa ko nung launching movie ko, hindi ko na lang masyado inintindi yung kaba at yung pressure. Mas nagfo-focus ako dun sa character ko, kung paano ako magiging believable. I guess yun siguro advantage nun. Nag-reflect yung [ganun kong attitude] sa movie. Nag-enjoy at umuwi nang nakangiti ang mga viewers. Ganun din yung gusto k’ng pairalin dito sa sequel. Ayoko na i-entertain yung negative vibes and pressure. As long as nag-eenjoy kami at sinigurado naming maganda yung sequel, okay na ako dun,” she explained.


Her first onscreen kiss (as well as in real life for that matter) with John Lloyd Cruz happens to be a big deal amongst the local media and the moviegoers since they have been all waiting for Sarah to venture into more mature roles. But it seems that everyone has to wait until the opening of the movie to see whether she has taken this huge step or not. “Secret. Panoorin ni’yo na lang. Ayoko munang magkwento tungkol dun. Katulad nga ng sinabi ni John Lloyd, abangan ni’yo kung paano namin yun ginawa. Basta hindi naman po ako masyadong nahirapan kasi inaalagaan naman ako ni John Lloyd, mas kumportable na po ako sa kanya at alam ko ring hindi ako pababayaan ni Direk Cathy (Garcia-Molina). Yung sinasabi niyong nagiging daring na ako [dahil dun sa halik sa braso na ipinakita sa trailer], hindi naman po siguro. Kumportable lang talaga akong katrabaho sila,” she maintained.


What’s really important to her now is that people will appreciate what she and the whole team of You Changed My Life have worked hard on. “Isa talagang blessing para sa akin ang makatrabaho ang katulad ni Direk Cathy and ni John Lloyd. Simula nung makatrabaho ko po sila, nagbago din talaga yung buhay ko, maraming dumating na blessings sa akin at mas naging inspired akong magtrabaho. Iba rin talaga yung experience ko while doing A Very Special Love. So kung hindi man po ma-surpass, sana mapantayan man lang ng You Changed My Life yung nauna. Sana mas marami pa rin kaming mapasayang mga tao, nandun pa rin yung kilig, at maramdaman pa rin nila yung love story ni Miggy Montenegroat Laida Magtalas,” she exclaimed. [Rachelle Siazon/ABS-CBN]

Karylle's latest comment on Dingdong and Marian

Karylle on Dingdong and Marian: "kung ano man ang meron sila at this point, labas na ako dun." Read full article here.

Karylle is indeed a girl of wisdom. Her loving heart was broken up but she was able to pull through and moved on. Yes, listen to what she's saying and you'll know she has wisdom. She is actually an intelligent person and an ideal woman.

In the last back-to-back interview of Dingdong and Marian by Startalk, a lot of people were turned off by Marian's responses, particularly the part about how Dingdong took her side and supported her, and obviously, people took it as Dingdong's choosing her over Karylle. That was believed to be the most painful moment for Karylle. But now, what is important is that Karylle has moved on and was able to win the hearts of many people to her side.

Heart’s ex-boyfriend Jericho Rosales, when told about the rumored break-up, said that he’s always praying for Heart and that he will continue to wish her well, but would also continue to just focus on self and career. He said that a possible reconciliation with Heart will have to remain to be seen. But right now, he is also spending more time with loved ones and friends and enjoying his single life.

How much does Paul Soriano love Toni Gonzaga?

Toni and Paul are very sweet towards each other but not in an obvious manner. But obviously, Paul is deeply in love with Toni, and to show how important Toni is to him, he gave her a surprise birthday party last January 20 for her 25th birthday. He also gave her too many gifts: (drum roll please) a Mac Book Pro laptop and six pricey pairs of shoes. Oh yeah. Toni had many suitors, but through prayers, she picked the right man for her. Paul has all the qualities that Toni was looking for in a boyfriend, but most importantly, Paul is not only a generous person but also a God-fearing man.

Is Miley Cyrus mocking asians in this picture?

NEW YORK – Miley Cyrus is responding to criticism that she mocked Asians in a photograph of the tween star stretching the corners of her eyes.

"In NO way was I making fun of any ethnicity!" Cyrus wrote Thursday in a posting on her official Web site. "I was simply making a goofy face. When did that become newsworthy? It seems someone is trying to make something out of nothing to me."

The photo, making the rounds online, shows the "Hannah Montana" star and five friends squinting their eyes into a slanted expression. An Asian man sits next to Cyrus, not participating in the group pose.

The OCA, a group dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well being of Asian Pacific Americans, criticized the 16-year-old star this week for setting "a terrible example for her many young fans" by "mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent."

In a statement, OCA executive director George Wu said the group hopes Cyrus will apologize to her fans.

"Well, (I'm) sorry if those people looked at those pics and took them wrong and out of context!" Cyrus wrote.

Cyrus, who was 13 when she started in the role of Hannah on the Disney Channel show, said she thinks the ordeal would be overlooked if it was someone else and not her.

"I definitely feel like the press is trying to make me out as the new `BAD GIRL'!" she wrote. "I feel like now that Britney is back on top of her game again, they need someone to pick on! Lucky me!"

Phone and e-mail messages to Cyrus' representative were not immediately returned.

This is the latest image to get the tween role model in trouble.

Last April, several shots by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair sparked national outrage. The cover showed Cyrus, then 15, wrapped in a sheet with a bare back and shoulders. [ERIN CARLSON]

It's all over the gossip-filled tinsel town that John Lloyd and girlfriend Liz have parted ways. How true is it? There were many signs since late last year when the rumor about the lunch meeting of John Lloyd and Carmen Soo spread around showbiz arena like fire. Since then, all they did was try to make things work out. But Liz is the type of person who will never get use to showbiz life and lifestyle. She can't stand gossips. Many people around John Lloyd are not confirming the break up but were noticing John Lloyd's lack of enthusiasm and inspiration. Many were saddened that they will come to this point because they were one of the few celebrity people that were being admired for having a strong relationship.

Dingdong Dantes' gift to Marian Rivera - an expensive bracelet

As you must have heard by now, Dingdong Dantes gave Marian Rivera a diamond bracelet (carats not revealed) last Christmas and she in turn gave him an expensive Omega watch. They wear their gifts like feathers on their caps.
Marian showed Funfare the bracelet during lunch at the newly-opened Via Mare restaurant (on Tomas Morato Avenue, Quezon City) yesterday where she and movie writer Ernie Pecho, so to speak, smoked the peace pipe. Ernie called Marian “tupperware” (plastic) during the Desparadas 2 presscon in December last year, driving her to tears.
Still and all, Marian (whose new GMA TV starrer with Dingdong, Carlo J. Caparas’ Ang Babaing Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang, kicked off last Monday night with a high rating) insisted that the bracelet doesn’t mean that she and Dingdong are “an item,” admitting that even if they are both free/eligible, “We just want to enjoy each other’s company; nakakalabas naman kami, kumakain kami,” but they are not committed to each other...yet?
Is it then only a matter of time before they go beyond being, ehem, just “special friends?”
“I don’t know,” Marian said, then laughed and laughed, covering her face with the right hand on which she wears the bracelet.
For the nth time, Marian said that she didn’t “steal” Dingdong from Karylle.
“I know the real story. I happened to be the woman closest to Dingdong because of our work, so people suspected that I caused the break-up. Alam ni Kaye na hindi ko inagaw sa kanya si Dingdong.”
Has she crossed paths with Karylle?
“Not yet. It’s not true that we are avoiding each other. I have no problem with Kaye.”
The feeling seems to be mutual.
When Karylle saw Ernie Pecho at the S magazine luncheon the other day, she told him, “Give (Marian) a chance.” Told about it, Marian was touched. “Wow, thank you naman,” she smiled. [FUNFARE By Ricardo F. Lo]

Sarah Geronimo and Rayver Cruz getting very close

The young singer/actress is now more open about her romantic life and about airing her opinions. She explained that her mother seems to understand the changes she is experiencing. “Tingin ko rin naiintindihan naman ng mom ko ‘yung pinagdadaanan ko ngayon sa edad ko. I’m growing up. At si mommy ‘di naman po siya nagkukulang ng pagpapaalala sa akin na pag-aaral muna,” said the 20-year-old singer.
She explained that her Mommy Divine has told her that there is nothing wrong with talking to her crush, as long as they know their limitations. “Walang masama na maging magkaibigan po kami at hindi ibig sabihin na kung magiging close kami, magiging future boyfriend ko na siya. Pero si Lord na lang ang nakakaalam nun.”
Sarah said she’s in no hurry to look for her Mr. Right, preferring to patiently wait for the right guy to come along. “Ayokong mang-galing sa iba’t-ibang relasyon. Gusto ko kapag ready na ko ‘yun na talaga. Ayoko po ng iba-iba.” [Bernie Franco]
