Four more for Anak TV’s Makabata Hall of Fame
Anak TV recently elevated four more TV personalities to its Makabata Hall of Fame—Kim Atienza, Ted Failon, Kim Chiu and Toni Gonzaga. They have consistently topped Anak TV’s annual Boto Ko ‘To survey for at least eight years, because televiewers deem them to be “credible, wholesome and worthy of emulation by the youth.”
Anak TV’s officers are led by Elvira Yap-Go, president; Leng Raymundo, vice president; Ma. Teresa Pacis, secretary; Mag Cruz Hatol, secretary general; Ed Roces, chair; with Mikee Cojuangco-Jaworski as spokesperson.
Funny cameos in ‘Zoolander’ sequel
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprise their stellar roles in “Zoolander” in the hit film’s current sequel, but the guest stars who make cameo appearances in it threaten to upstage them—with shameless gusto!
They include Justin Bieber, Benedict Cumberbatch, Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Valentino, Kiefer Sutherland, Sting and Susan Boyle.
After the trailer of the new comedy-horror film, “Echorsis,” was released online last week, it received close to one million views, making it a “should see” when it opens soon. The film’s full title is “Echorsis: Sabunutan Between Good and Evil.”
The spoof of “The Exorcist” is directed by Lemuel Lorca, scripted by Jerry Gracio, produced by Chris Cahilig and topbills John Lapus, Kean Cipriano and Alex Medina.
The Red Ribbon bakeshop chain and the Apl.De.Ap Fondation recently turned over a two-story classroom building to Talon-Talon Elementary School in Zamboanga City to help bring the youth back to school.
