Back with his abusive girlfriend
Handsome actor’s mom is fuming. She was relieved when HA broke up with Sexy Starlet.
(Mom never liked the girlfriend, whom she finds loud and crass. Worse, SS had the nasty habit of smacking HA on the head. It was her way of showing her affection, SS insisted. Is she related to the Three Stooges?)
However, it seems HA couldn’t get enough of the abusive girl and ran back to her. He says he had his first taste of bedroom mazurka with insatiable SS. Was that why HA looked dehydrated?
Sexy Actress and Drama Star were screen sweethearts. In real life, they hated each other’s guts. To their credit, they managed to hide the animosity and even won accolades for their stirring performances as passionate lovers.
Now, that’s acting.
SA insists that DS was unpredictable on the set. Could it be because his love life was in shambles at the time?
Talented Performer has long been thought to be gay.
On an out-of-town gig, TP shared a hotel room with Reality Cutie. TP must’ve been on cloud nine.
RC is quite the dreamboat. Was that TP grinning from ear to ear on the beach of the world-famous summer destination?
This one makes us doubt the criteria of an esteemed award-giving body.
Hunky Actor won a coveted award from this group. Perhaps HA did exceptionally well in that project, but consistency is clearly not one of his gifts.
In another high-profile project, HA was sacked. The director wasn’t pleased with HA’s lackluster performance and replaced him with Stud Muffin.
False ‘AI’ alarm
Singer-actress Lea Salonga denies the rumor that she was to appear as mentor in the reality show “American Idol,” where Filipino-Mexican-American Jessica Sanchez is competing this week as one of the Top 3.
Salonga was on tour in the United States at the time the scuttlebutt made the rounds. She told Rushes she was “about to come home.”
Top of the Talk Shows
For those who missed last weekend’s TV gabfests (and why we are moved, if we are moved):
Piolo Pascual, asked about the biggest lesson his mom taught him: “’Yung pagiging strong, maka-Diyos at disiplinado. At … pagmamahal sa pamilya.” (That would make a perfect man.)
Angelica Panganiban on her adoptive mom: “Nakakainis, sana may word na naimbentong mas hihigit sa ‘thank you’ at ‘I love you,’ kasi kung meron mang ganung salita, ’yun ang sasabihin ko sa kanya.” (We’re stuck on “nakakainis.”)
Jaclyn Jose on Albie Casiño’s mom, Rina, accusing her of being an alcoholic: “Hindi ako nag-react dahil ’di naman totoo. People can attest to that. Nagtatrabaho ako all my life, wala namang nakakita sa inyo na umiinom ako or what … gustong-gusto ko na siyang idemanda dun, eh. Kaya lang busy ako!” (This the best retort we’ve heard in years.)
Jaclyn Jose’s message to Rina and Albie Casiño: “Wala ba kayong ibang magawa? Go to the beach! Have fun, just relax, chill!” (Or maybe this one.)
Phil Younghusband, asked about his mom’s opinion of Angel Locsin: “Sabi niya … mabait si Angel. She loves Angel!” (More than…?)
Raymart Santiago on the Naia brouhaha: “Lalabas din ang katotohanan. ’Yun lang ang pinanghahawakan ko … Naniniwala ako na there’s justice.” (So, can Claudine speak now?)
Helen Gamboa, reconciling with Sharon Cuneta through SMS: “’Yung dalawang taon na ’yon, masakit na masakit sa ’kin dahil ’di kita nakita, ’di kita nakausap, pero wala na ’yun kasi nandiyan ka na ulit. Inaantay ko na lang na magkita tayong dalawa. Basta’t alam ko, alam mo ’yun, maski hindi ako magsalita, alam mo kung gaano kita kamahal from the start.” (Alam mo nga ba, Mega?)
Ramon Tulfo, asked if his macho image was affected by the mauling in Naia: “Maaaring natalo ako, pero lumaban ako.”
Dennis Trillo’s birthday wish: “Gusto ko lang maging healthy para magampanan ko nang maayos lahat ng trabahong ibinibigay sa ’kin.” (Medyo boring, ha?)
Bianca King, asked about her birthday gift to Dennis Trillo: “Company … Hindi, meron din pero we’ll just keep it private na lang.” (Uh, we can guess…)
Luis Manzano on allegedly being spotted in a church in Batangas inquiring about wedding services: “Kahit ako, naguluhan kung paano nangyari ’yun. Siguro kung sakali, kamukha ko ’yung nag-inquire—napakaswerteng nilalang!” (May kasama nga bang kamukha ni Jennylyn?)
Marian Rivera, asked how she sees herself in five years: “Nandito pa rin ako!” (Speechless kami.)
