Cherie Gil, scene-stealer
VIRGIE DONATO, housewife: “In ‘Dolce Amore,’ Cherie Gil upstages her coactors without trying—even in scenes where she has minimal or no speaking lines!”
Edwin Aquino, engineer: “I’m delighted to see Megastar Sharon Cuneta as one of the coaches on ‘The Voice Kids.’ She looks slimmer and has nice rapport with her fellow coaches. I hope she’ll be able to teach the members of her team proper singing and performing. While I understand that Sharon is naturally cheerful and happy, I think she’s overdoing it by laughing too much. Perhaps she could tone it down and be less giddy?”
Samantha Dizon, televiewer: “Sharon Cuneta’s inclusion in ‘The Voice Kids’ is a welcome respite. While her vocal quality isn’t as admirable as Sarah Geronimo’s, her long experience in show business cannot be underestimated. Her nurturing ‘motherly’ style will be helpful to the young contestants.”
Robbie Coronado, student: “Michael Pangilinan’s ‘Pare, Mahal Mo Rin Ako’ is a beautiful OPM song, especially in terms of melody and interpretation. Besides, the song’s message shows how progressive Philippine society has become. It speaks of something our grandparents would probably hesitate to talk about. Let’s hope that the movie of the same title, headlined by Pangilinan with Edgar Allan Guzman, is just as soulful.”
Janet Diaz, office employee: “GMA 7 artist Rich Asuncion should get rid of her Cebuano accent if she wants to succeed as a serious dramatic actress. Maybe hiring a tutor will do the trick? It would help if she watches herself in the teleserye, so she’ll realize that it’s really a problem.”
