New lease on life for Donita’s show biz career
Rina Antone, housewife: “After Sunshine Dizon and Jodi Sta. Maria, I was sad to learn about the breakup of the relationship of Donita Rose and her hubby. Perhaps it’s time for her to focus on her show biz career and go back to what she does best—TV hosting.”
Julia Katada, televiewer: “‘Tawag ng Tanghalan’ semifinalists, Rufino Robles Jr. and Jennie Gabriel, are not only outstanding singers, but are good vocal impressionists, as well. Jennie’s Angel Locsin routine has the studio audience in stitches, and her singing impressions of Jessa Zaragoza, Zsa Zsa Padilla and Jaya are impressive.
“Rufino is just as good in impersonating local singers. His YouTube videos show him performing a la Janno Gibbs, Gary Valenciano and Ogie Alcasid. ‘It’s Showtime’ would do well to showcase these performers’ funny antics!”
Jose Mari Macacayan, marketing consultant: “Ina Feleo is a revelation in ‘Hanggang Makita Kang Muli,’ effectively internalizing a complex character. In the field of comedy, Regine Velasquez is a standout in ‘Poor Señorita.’”
Phillippe Salvador Palmos, theater actor: “‘Ma’ Rosa’ should be required viewing for every Filipino. Its grit and poignancy are a truthful mirror of Pinoy society and culture. Jaclyn Jose deserves her best actress win. She’s outstanding in the last five minutes of the movie.”
Milagros Cantre, businesswoman: “I have been a huge fan of Rappler’s Maria Ressa for some time now. She is the epitome of what a media practitioner should be. She researches, understands issues from different angles, and asks the right questions. She’s analytical yet fearless. Media practitioners can learn a lot from her!”
