Performer on the campaign trail goes where the money is

/ 12:10 AM March 20, 2022

A good number of celebrities have been using their influence to either raise awareness for their advocacies or support political platforms they believe in. But Enterprising Singer (ES), noted Rushes Mole (RM), peddles his services where it’s financially beneficial to him.

RM told us that just before the chaotic campaign season began, ES was promoting a project associated with Unexpected Politician (UP), a candidate who’s now running for a national post.


Prior to that, ES has been declaring himself apolitical and nonpartisan, although his occasional posts on social media defending questionable public figures’ actions were quite telling.

But just two months before D-Day, RM told us that ES has been seen in campaign sorties “making pakwela” with other entertainers supporting UP’s political rivals. As they say, “Anyare?”


When we asked RM what his explanation could be about the puzzling switcheroo, all RM could say was, “Well, ES goes where the money is!” Pak.


This week’s top show biz news from the tabloids (and why we are moved, if we are moved):

• Francine Diaz uunahin muna ang pamilya kesa sa lalaki. (Sounds sensible.)

Ruffa Gutierrez

• Ruffa Gutierrez sa laiterang bashers: It’s an honor to look gay, mas type kong magmukhang bakla! (And this “mukhang bakla” just happened to place third at the 1993 Miss World beauty pageant. Inggit much?)

• Nadine Lustre game pa ring makatambal si James Reid sa bonggang project. (Does James feel the same?)

• Tom Rodriguez hindi raw bakla sabi ni Rey Abellana (tatay ni Carla): Hindi ko pinaniniwalaan ‘yan! (Father knows best?)

• Resbak ni Bea Alonzo sa nagsabing ‘kulubot ka na’ para sa bago niyang project: Proud ako sa itsura ko at 34 years old! (Kulubot or not, we’re pretty sure Bea still looks much better than her anonymous basher. Yaya, bigyan ng salamin si basher!)


• Alex Gonzaga ibinuking na type ng asawa niyang si Mikee Morada si Yassi Pressman: Buwisit nga ako sa ‘yo, e! (Nemen.)

• Payo ni Megan Young sa mga pet lovers: Your fur baby is like a baby, so dapat isama sila sa budget n’yo (Yup. They’re as much a part of the family.)

Bianca Umali

• Bianca Umali payag mag-join sa beauty pageant: Pero ang tanong papasa kaya ako sa height requirement? (Good question)

• Andrea Brillantes, Ricci Rivero spotted sa BGC, tanong ng mga ‘Marites’: Magdyowa na ba? (Hmm. Maybe Seth Fedelin would know…?)
