Beating Stephen Curry a dream come true for PJ Simon
PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) heartthrob PJ Simon of Magnolia Hotshots is in a euphoric state after meeting NBA Superstar, Stephen Curry.
“It was a dream come true for me and my coplayers,” gushed PJ. “I can’t believe I beat Steph in the obstacle challenge. When he congratulated me, it felt like I won a PBA championship!”
But, over and beyond Stephen’s basketball wizardry, it’s his personal relationship with God that struck PJ.
“A professional cager of his stature can easily be blinded by fame and fortune,” he pointed out. “But, he doesn’t let that happen because his focus is on his faith. He serves as a good example to all of us players not to forget the Lord, who blessed us with our talent to play basketball.”
PJ also shared that the basketball superstar’s rubber shoes have his fave bible verse printed on them. He enthused, “What better way to honor the real Superstar up above?”
Julia’s dream house
Julia Barretto’s dream house is almost done. It’s just a stone’s throw away from her mom Marjorie’s place. They are a tightly knit family. So even if Julia already wants to live independently, she still wants to come home to her mom and sisters every now and then.
No matter how famous celebs become, they still need “mothering” when the show biz circus wears them out.
Child support issue
Since almost everyone knows that Cesar Montano is my best friend, people have been badgering me about the child support issue that his ex-wife, Sunshine Cruz, has been yakking about.
Although BFF Buboy (Cesar’s nickname) opened up to me, I’m not at liberty to divulge what we talked about. Suffice it to say that I have personally witnessed how generous and kind Buboy is to his friends’ kids, so what more to his own children?
I became an instant fan of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo after watching their blockbuster movie, “The Hows of Us.” The KathNiel tandem nailed it in all aspects seamlessly. They have metamorphosed into a formidable duo. Less schmaltz, more oomph.
