Charo Santos on the comeback trail
LULU SIOSON, film enthusiast: “Charo Santos is making an acting comeback with one of the country’s most acclaimed directors, Lav Diaz—that’s welcome news! The film, ‘Ang Babaeng Humayo,’ is long overdue—especially for Charo, who was once hailed as Asia’s best actress for her portrayal in Mike de Leon’s dramatic opus, ‘Itim.’
Speaking of De Leon—when will he make his comeback film?”
Anna Marie Ngo, government employee: “My mom and I bond by watching ‘We Love OPM’ together. She’s happy cheering for Bugoy Drilon, Jovit Baldivino and Dominador Aviola of Tres Kantos. The show is a pleasant source of entertainment that make retirees like my mom happy!”
Raffy Manzano, businessman: “I hope Maricel Soriano makes a comeback via a teleserye on ABS-CBN. I’d like to see her in a bida-kontrabida role. But, first, she has to shed those extra pounds so she’ll be in fighting form again.”
Lily Corpuz, housewife: “What’s with ‘Eat Bulaga?’ Traffic Diva Aicelle Santos has not been seen on the show for several weeks now, and there’s been no word if her absence is temporary or permanent. The show has also chosen to keep mum about the whereabouts of Julia Clarete and Paolo Ballesteros. Isn’t it unfair to keep the show’s loyal viewers in the dark?”
