Spotlight-hogging heartthrob offended by lukewarm reception

/ 12:15 AM June 16, 2019

Publicity-hungry Performer (PP) was dismayed by the lukewarm reception he received at an international film festival he attended.

This was because he compared the welcome he got to that of two other Filipino actors, who were greeted by screaming fans, complete with banners.


At the time, the two celebs had a TV series that was airing in that country, hence the louder and warmer-than-expected reaction.

To get even at his producers, PP locked himself up in his hotel room and refused all invitations to speak with members of the international media that night.



This week’s top show biz news in the Inquirer tabloid Bandera (and why we are moved, if we are moved):

Kathryn Bernardo

Kathryn Bernardo Box-Office Queen na, certified best actress pa! (Go, girl.)

Alden Richards tuloy ang pagtulong sa kabataan, nagpatayo ng bagong school sa Mindoro! (Celebs, emulate him.)

Maine Mendoza (left) and Alden Richards

Alden, Maine Mendoza nag-iiwasan sa ‘Bulaga’; magic ng AlDub waley na. (So, what else is new…)

Winwyn Marquez magtatayo ng sarili n’yang preschool; may payo sa mga magka-college. (There’s beauty in learning.)

“Kailangang mag-public apology si Barbie Imperial kay Manoy Eddie Garcia; buhay pa pero pinatay na niya.” (Yikes.)


Kalat na: ‘Rosang Agimat’ ng GMA hindi na itutuloy… habang coma pa si Manoy. (Understandable.)

Kasalang Richard Guttierrez at Sarah Lahbati wala nang urungan sa 2020! (Just do it!)

Sigaw ng fans ni Nadine Lustre sa Popsters: Sure kayo na wholesome si Sarah Geronimo? (Cue crickets.)

Vice Ganda umamin na: Happy ang buhay namin ni Ion Perez, at yan ang totoo! (If you say so… next.)

Dingdong Dantes nagpakatotoo na: Mas takot kay Marian Rivera kesa sa terror na direktor. (But of course!)

Hirit ni Kyline Alcantara kay Cherie Gil: Pwede n’yo po ba akong sampalin?! (Wait your turn.)

Cherie Gil seryoso sa warning na ‘Don’t call me tita,’ ayaw din ng ‘beso-beso.’ (Hala. Huwag pabebe.)

James Reid (left) and Nadine Lustre

Ex-beauty queen pinuri si Daniel Padilla pero inokray si James Reid; JaDine fans nagwala sa galit. (Calculated risk.)

Boobs ni Jennylyn Mercado pinagpiyestahan sa teaser ng ‘Starstruck.’ (Boob tube boo-boo.)
