Vina Morales is one proud mama. Her daughter Ceana (who turns 4 on April 25) just graduated from kindergarten. Will she allow her “unica hija” to join show biz someday?
“If she is inclined and the time is right, then okay,” Vina says. “For now, she’s too young to know what she wants to do in life. She can do commercials. Like any mom, I would be thrilled to see my baby in a TV ad or on a billboard.”
Now that her love life is “zero,” her world revolves around Ceana. “Although I’m happy being single, I still pray that God will send the right guy to me,” she muses. “I leave it up to Him. God’s choice is the best choice.”
Her younger sister, Shaina Magdayao, is also loveless after parting ways with John Lloyd Cruz but is being linked to Piolo Pascual. What can Vina say about that?
“Issues such as that one are a given in this biz,” she points out. “As far as I know, Shaina and Piolo hang out with their friends when they are not busy shooting their movie.”
The lovely sisters, with or without a “mister,” will always have each other.
My close friend (daughter of a well-loved show biz icon) feels so bad for her son, who was beaten up by four bodyguards and friends of the son of a high-ranking official in a Quezon City bar on Friday night.
“It was a case of mistaken identity,” my friend sighs. “When they learned that he was from a show biz clan, it was too late. My son was already badly bruised. We are still planning what to do. It’s tough because the guy’s dad holds a top position. But if my son lets me, I will reveal his identity para mabawasan ang kayabangan niya (to make him less arrogant).”
I told her she had nothing to fear—the legion of fans who love her dad dearly would surely rally behind her.
Bar brawls can be avoided if men just consume alcohol and not let alcohol consume them instead.
A hotter ‘Foursome’
“Foursome” will definitely be hotter the second time around. Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Pops Fernandez and Martin Nievera are all set for the repeat of their successful V-day concert on March 16, Saturday, 8 p.m. at the MOA Arena (for tickets, call 8543300/702222).
How different will it be from the first one? “It will be 40 percent different,” explains Ogie. “Plus, we have Gary Valenciano as our special guest. Of course, the banter and teasing will come naturally so even if you watched last Feb. 14, you can still expect new stuff.”
What does he admire most in Martin and Gary?
“They are complete professionals,” Ogie says. “They work very hard at their craft. To this day, they remain grounded and humble. That is why they remain on top.”
Ogie’s fave Martin songs are “How Can I” and “Be My Lady” while his fave Gary V songs are “Sana Maulit Muli” and “Di Bale Na Lang.”
Have they transcended the rivalry stage?
“To be honest, I don’t believe I am their rival,” Ogie points out. “Mart and Gary are in a league of their own, really. I am honored to be sharing the stage with them.”
Such humility! No doubt, the Concert King and Mr. Pure Energy will say the same thing about the songwriter. They ought to mount their own concert and call it “Three’s Harmony.”
