Powerful personality hassles visiting artist’s entourageBy the Entertainment staff
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Using government connections, PP put the pressure on VA and entourage, who had to delay their arrival as a result.
Many observers are wondering: “Was PP being vindictive? Was it because VA’s team chose to partner with a company other than the one owned by PP’s clan?” Uh-oh.
Sexy Siren is a bona fide “science project,” says a mole. SS has had all sorts of cosmetic procedures done on her face and body.
During a shoot, the director asked SS to participate in a brutal fight scene with a stunt man, who was supposed to beat her black and blue in the sequence.
As soon as the director yelled “Action!,” nervous SS unleashed a shrill, blood-curdling scream. She refused to be hit even once because her nose, cheeks and chin might fall off. Aray.
While watching HA’s latest project, SI stumbled upon palpable proof. The name of SB’s company bears HA’s initials. Imagine SB singing, “What I did for love”!
Turns out HA’s new sweetheart, Talented Discovery, is just a front. After all, TD famously prefers the company of women. Confusing, ha?
Parade of lovers
Security guards in a posh residential area are not-so-silent witnesses to the colorful love life of Sexy Starlet.
The guards report that prominent men always pay SS a visit in the wee hours. Sometimes, they say, the “clients” almost literally bump into each other. For example, as Handsome Lawmaker leaves, Plump Politico arrives.
The wealthy benefactors are said to shower SS with gifts—in cash and in kind. “The only one who doesn’t have to shell out a single centavo is Gifted Entertainer,” a source says with undisguised malice.
The camp of Controversial Star tried to sweep an ugly incident under the rug.
CS, however, confided to a friend: “I’ve done a lot of crazy things but at least they were not caught on video, so there was never any proof—unlike Scandalous Celebrity.”
Drew weds again
LOS ANGELES—Drew Barrymore has tied the knot for the third time, marrying her art dealer fiancé Will Kopelman this weekend in Southern California, media outlets reported on Sunday.
The “Charlie’s Angels” actress, 37, wore a Chanel gown and wed Kopelman on Saturday in a Jewish ceremony at their estate in Montecito, California, outside Los Angeles, with guests including Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Jimmy Fallon and Busy Philips, according to People Magazine.
The celebrity magazine also said Barrymore is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
This is the third wedding for Barrymore, who was previously married to bar owner Jeremy Thomas in March 1994, filing for divorce less than two months later; and comedian Tom Green in July 2001, with Green filing for divorce less than six months later. Reuters
Top of the Talk Shows
For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Sarah Geronimo, asked about the real score between her and Gerald Anderson: “We are friends, at totoo po ’yan. Totoo talaga ’yan, walang halong show biz.” (Ows?)
Angeline Quinto, who is building a new house: “Gusto ko talaga may swimming pool. Pero nung tinanong ko ’yung gagawa, P1.2 million—ang mahal-mahal! Baka gusto niyong (Boy Abunda) sagutin!” (Firstly, do you swim?)
Angeline on her debut movie, “Born to Love You”: “Kaya ko siguro nagawa ito, kahit na mahirap, eh dahil sa mga taong nagbibigay ng inspirasyon, suporta at pagmahahal sa ’kin. ’Yun po talaga ang iniisip ko lagi tuwing nagsu-shooting kami.” (You weren’t thinking of your acting?)
Megan Young on being romantically linked to Mikael Daez: “He’s a friend of mine, we have the same group of friends and we always go out. I guess that’s why nali-link kami, kasi nakikita kaming magkasama sa labas.” (Wanted: New lines for young stars embarking on romance. We’re tired of the same spiels.)
Jason Franciso, asked if his breakup with Melai Cantiveros was caused by a third party: “Wala talaga. Swear wala talaga! For the record, wala pong third party … ’Yung kay Kaye [Abad] sobrang labo nu’n. Kasama ko lang siya sa ‘Angelito’ … ’Di ko nga crush ’yun!” (’Eto pa isa.)
John Lloyd Cruz on rumors that he’s currently dating Angelica Panganiban: “Wala akong alam. I don’t think meron akong kailangang sagutin at this point about anything personal. As far as I’m concerned, lahat ng issue sa personal life ko is settled.” (Yeah, yeah. Is that a yes?)
Rhian Ramos on rumored sweetheart KC Montero: “We have been spending a lot of time together. I want to get to know him more … Kailangan mo talagang kilalanin ang mga tao bago mo sila gawing mainstay sa buhay mo.” (Sounds like you’ve learned your lesson. And at least you’re not engaging in double-talk like all the others. Still, proceed with caution.)
BB Gandanghari, asked by Zoren Legaspi if she had ill feelings toward him: “Honestly, wala kasi sa totoo lang, wala ka naman talagang kinalaman sa kung ano man ang nangyari sa past ni Carmina [Villaroel] at ni Rustom [Padilla]. At kung meron man akong nararamdaman tungkol sa’yo, hindi sama ng loob or galit, kundi pasasalamat. I can see that you’re taking care of Carmina and I’m very happy.” (Wow. That’s a very manly thing to say.)
Dennis Trillo on her relationship with ex-girlfriend Carlene Aguilar: “Masaya lang na tapos na lahat ang problema na pinagdaanan namin. Ngayon, magkaibigan na kami.” (Whatever. Now, tell us, which one of you has a new project?)
Dennis Trillo, asked if he’s planning to get married soon: “Wala. Marami pa akong gustong gawin at marating. Sa tingin ko, ’di makakatulong kapag nag-asawa ako. Siguro kailangan matupad muna ’yung iba ko pang plano… darating din ’yun, pero siguro malayo pa.” (Take your time.)
Carla Abellana, asked if she has fallen in love with someone who’s taken: “Never at wala po akong balak! Parang ang hirap, napakakumplikado ng sitwasyon kung ikaw ay naiipit sa gitna … siyempre kapag alam mong involved na ang isang tao, back off ka na. Huwag na lang.” (Look but don’t touch.)
Sheena Halili, asked if Rocco Nacino is courting her: “Siguro, pwedeng ganun na rin kasi nagde-date na rin naman kami.” (That’s a yes. Or tapos na ang courtship?)
