2012 resolutions for congenitally irresolute stars

/ 05:22 PM February 03, 2012

THERE’S always so much more to be done, so many things to improve on in show business, but some stars and starlets are notoriously irresolute in this regard. So, to jump-start the improvements needed to make this new entertainment season better than last year’s, here are some timely reminders for our clueless or recalcitrant luminaries:

For many tisoy “imports,” the will power and stick-to-it-iveness to finally learn Tagalog so well that they can stop playing only balikbayan types, and thus drastically expand their thespic range and repertoire.

In this urgent and long overdue endeavor, let Michelle van Eimeren be their shining example and stellar guide. Yes, it can be done, if the lazy imports only hunker down to work as hard as she has.


Important factor


Next, repeat after us: As “beautiful” starlets and stars, we know that ego is an important factor in our profession—but, we resolve this year to keep reminding ourselves that we are in show biz, not for our own fame and fortune, but to entertain, inform and inspire the millions of people who make up our audience.

Just a detail, but it’s important, because it presents such a constant and major distraction: Female stars and starlets swear that you will stop constantly fidgeting and fussing around with your hair!

Stars should refuse to host gossip shows on TV, as many of them now do because performers are supposed to be gossiped about, not do the gossiping. It’s like a doctor who operates on himself—deadly in its possible implications and complications!

Stars should also refuse to do judging chores on programs in which the judges are the ones who are voted out! This is a demeaning requirement that no self-respecting juror should agree to.

TV newscasters should vow to desist from their unprofessional and subjective practice of “coloring” the news with their distracting “dramatic” vocal flourishes—and to stop expressing their opinions!

News and public affairs program hosts should stop working from morning till night and get some much-needed sleep, so they can be of better service to their viewers!



Child stars should stop acting and talking like pint-sized adults and be children. And, their relatives should stop forcing them to be their families’ breadwinners.

Mediocre to downright lousy singers should vow not to cut records and do concerts, both here and abroad—it’s insulting to our many good singers, and to the audience, which deserves  more than just self-parody that passes itself off as “entertainment.”

Hosts of so-called “crimebusting” TV shows should bust some big criminals—for a change! Stop going after the little fish and fall guys—it makes for “exciting” TV, but minimal actual crimebusting.

Finally, starlets shouldn’t try to make it in the biz by imitating established stars’ looks, behavior and performing styles. That’s like buying a one-way ticket to—oblivion!
