Starlet triggers Sunshine Cruz’s anger


Sunshine Cruz

Controversy Season 2013 has officially begun in local show biz. Just when netizens were still shaking off the holiday hangover, Sunshine Cruz’s intriguing posts on Twitter and Instagram caused quite a stir.

This is a tough piece for me to write since I am very close to Shine and her husband, Cesar Montano. But duty calls so I have to comment about the raging issue that involves Shine, Buboy and a certain Krista Miller.

The moment I saw Shine’s Instagram posts of Krista’s pictures and her stern warning to the starlet who’s a bit player in Buboy’s coming movie, “The Alfredo Lim Story,” I got worried so I immediately texted Buboy and Shine.

Buboy’s reply: “What did Shine post? I’m still busy shooting.”

Shine’s reply: “I know Buboy is a good father and provider. I will pray that he finds real and honest-to-goodness happiness and contentment with whoever he chooses. Kapakanan na lang ng kids ko ang iisipin ko.”

Buboy and Shine have been through worst. Hopefully, this storm will also come to pass. As Buboy once told me, “Marriage should be a union of two forgivers so that it will work.”

By now, the couple should have mastered the art of forgiving and forgetting.

He’s definitely not a saint, although he has a way of making up for his shortcomings. Shine knows that too well, otherwise she could have left him many controversies ago. She loves him enough to always give him another chance.

Their marriage is truly worth saving. It will be a terrible thing to waste.

Buboy was clueless about Sunshine’s rants on Instagram.

It’s good that Shine has now deleted the pics of Krista from her IG account. Why dignify her existence at all? Now the “extra” has hit the headlines. She ought to thank Shine for her instant fame (or infamy).

But of course you can’t blame Shine for venting her ire.


In Dolphy’s name

Sally Quizon and her brothers Eric, Epy, Ronnie, Edgar and Dolphy Jr., along with their family friend, Nanette Medved, turned over the classroom they donated in Dolphy’s name to the Emilio Jacinto Elementary School last Friday.

“Dad made his presence felt,” Sally said. “There was this brown butterfly that hovered around the classroom the whole time we were there. It made me feel good yet it made me miss Daddy all the more.”

Sally takes a piece of her dad with her wherever she goes. Strands of the late Comedy King’s hair are tucked inside a locket necklace which she always wears.

The Quizons also donated P500,000 to the Philippine National Red Cross from the proceeds of the “Alay Tawa Tribute to Dolphy.” PNRC board of governors member Rosa Rosal said they would use the money to buy a blood refrigerator.

Ronnie told me that the smiles at the school and PNRC were more than enough because his father always wanted everyone to smile.

The King of Comedy was the King of Kindness as well. For sure, Pidol was all smiles as he watched his kids pay it forward.

Erotic drama

The Cinema Evaluation Board gave Viva Films’ latest erotic drama, “Menor de Edad,” a “B” rating for its moving story of a girl’s coming of age and Joel Lamangan’s stirring direction. It opens on Jan. 23 and will launch Meg Imperial to sexy stardom.

     “Marriage should be a union of two forgivers so that it will work.”  Nice alibi by Cesar Montano so that he could continue womanizing.

    • tristanism

      You have to admit, it’s brilliant. LOL!

      • Kiam

         A brilliant alibi.

    • athenapallas

      That pronouncement is the mother of all bullshit.

  • Selina

    My goodness, I wonder why until at this point in time, local showbizness is still creating junk stories to publicize its upcoming movies. Hone your craft and do more meaningful and relevant movies. Showcase your talents so people can really appreciate your films. This publicity makes your project so cheap and desperate for audience. Thrash!!!!!

    • athenapallas

      Sadly that is just the state of our showbis industry and the kind of people in it. No quality and no class, very cheap very third world state of mind. Philippine politics and showbis are much the same.

    A marriage breaking up to promote a project? I thought Cesar is a changed man, and Sunshine is supposed to be a Christian.  Why talk openly about their domestic problem as if the solution to their troubled marriage lies outside their house?

  • Kiam

    Basta may pararating na pelikula, “advance party” talaga ang kontobersiya…ganyan sila sa showbiz. Maniwala kayo diyan.

  • Klepto

    May public orgy na naman?

  • Joey

    kampi-kampi ha. cesar has always been known to be a philanderer and an abusive husband. stop covering up his behind.

  • Echuserang_Froglet

    grave ha, hindi pa nakuntento kay sunshine. nakakadiri ka cesar montano. ppppppppwwwweeeehhhh kadiri eeeewwwww… kakabit ka lang sa pangit at starlet pang pokpok. 

  • jolly_baby

    Nagsimula ata yan nung nahuhuli si shine na naggaling sa motel. Nawalan na siguro ng gana si cesar.

    Hello. what is with the author trying to sugar coat everything?? is it because she thinks shine will be reading?? her husband has cheated on her countless times and she knows it. its obvious enough he expects her to forgive him every time.
