Unsolicited presents for Tinseltown’s biggest stars
As a Dollywood tradition, allow me to share the unusual kind of presents that I wish I could give some of my fave people in the biz. ’Tis the season to be cheesy. Let the “ChristMush” begin. May there be a little bit of Christmas in each day of 2019 for us all!
VILMA SANTOS. The power to teleport, so she can spread her joie de vivre around to more people.
BOY ABUNDA. An invisible massager to power him up while he works nonstop.
CESAR MONTANO. An anticontroversy vaccine.
OGIE ALCASID. His own bridge from Manila to Australia, so he can shuttle back and forth anytime he misses his daughter in Oz.
DINGDONG DANTES. A surefire formula for a baby boy after his wife Marian (Rivera) gives birth to their second child.
AGA MUHLACH. To bring our idol, Michael Jackson, back to life.
MEDS MARFIL (of True Faith). His own Cat Wonderland, for the feline lover in him.
POPS FERNANDEZ. A house full of walk-in closets, and a runway for the fashionista in her.
AIKO MELENDEZ. A lifetime guarantee for her relationship with Mayor Jay (Khonghun of Subic).
ARLENE MUHLACH. Her own vodka factory, so she can have a bottomless serving of her “poison of choice” every time she wants to go “bottoms up.”
VINA MORALES. A different kind of Waze app that will lead her to Mr. Right.
YAYO AGUILA. A Mr. Right radar, so she can finally find “the one.”
WENCY CORNEJO. A tennis court that pops up on his whim.
JOHN ESTRADA. A golf course that will magically appear whenever he feels like playing his fave sport.
RICKY DAVAO. His own recording studio for the relentless singer in him.
As of press time, Catriona Gray’s boyfriend, Clint Bondad, seems clueless about when he will get to spend time with his girlfriend after she was crowned Miss Universe 2018. He says that security is tight.
Didn’t anyone from Cat’s team tell her bodyguards to let Clint through so he could congratulate her personally right after her coronation?
Why wasn’t he on board the private jet with Cat, Gov. Chavit Singson and company en route to Manila from Bangkok? Hopefully, Cat and Clint’s relationship won’t turn into a Gray, este grey, area.
PERSONAL: Thanks more than words can say to Mr. Wonderful, the GM of my fave resort Bohol Beach Club, Alan Santos, for his kindness.
