What Dimples has proven

November 11, 2019
DIMPLES Romana joined showbiz when she was only 12 after she was discovered by Vera Isberto in a mall. ABS-CBN then launched her as part of Star Circle Batch 4 in 1997 that included Jericho Rosales, Kristine Hermosa and Dominic Ochoa. She was so pretty a lot of writers predicted she’ll quickly gain full stardom, but she got married early and so she never really achieved leading lady status.

Janine deglamorized, ends up winner

November 10, 2019
JANINE Gutierrez won the best actress award in the recent QCinema International Filmfest for her crackerjack portrayal of a timid, oppressed young woman who becomes more aggressive and assertive after she accidentally finds a gun left by a thug in their street. And she truly deserves her trophy. Her character is purposely made nameless to stand for all those women who are often treated marginally in our sexist and patriarchal society.

What's in a title?

November 10, 2019
TWO negative incidents that happened in showbiz recently didn’t help the box office performance of the local films that they’re involved in: the horror flick “Santigwar” and the romantic movie, “Cara X Jagger”. In the cast of “Santigwar”, Alexa Ilacad, who plays her first starring role in the movie, spewed venom against Nash Aguas and it didn’t sit well with audiences who avoided her movie. It was first day, last day in most moviehouses.

Nathalie back to scare viewers

November 09, 2019
NATHALIE Hart is back after giving birth to her daughter, Penelope, in Sydney, Australia. She looked so sexy at the presscon of her iWant movie, “Barbara Reimagined”, a remake of “Patayin Mo sa Sindak si Barbara” which has movie versions in 1974 starring Susan Roces as directed by the late Celso Ad. Castillo, in 1995 with Lorna Tolentino as directed by Chito Rono and as a TV mini series in 2008 with Kris Aquino directed by Jerry Sineneng.

Ken says Rita is easy to be with

November 08, 2019
KEN Chan is visible on TV every day of the week, Mondays to Fridays in “One of the Baes” and on Saturdays and Sunday as a host in “The Clash Season 2”. He is paired with Rita Daniela in both shows and fans of their RitKen love team are now wondering if something romantic has already developed between them. They seem to be so at home with each and no longer have any inhibitions of any sort.

Epy resurrects dad Dolphy, KZ a big revelation

November 07, 2019
"THE Art of Ligaw" had a successful premiere night at Trinoma last Tuesday. We accepted the invitation to see it as the PR who invited us is a very dear friend we cannot say no to. We went to the theatre without any expectations as the writer-director, Jourdan Sebastian, and the production company, Core Minds, are all first timers who have not proven themselves yet. It's also the first time for Epy Quizon to play a lead role and for singer KZ Tandingan to try acting, so it’s really a big gamble for all of them.

Roderick back on his turf

November 07, 2019
No doubt his role as Rita Daniela’s adoptive dad in “One of the Baes” has renewed the audience’s interest in him. He plays a closet queen in the story and he is trying hard to conceal his true self from the people around and pretends that he is macho, especially when he is in front of his hunky male boarders and to his neighbor, Maureen Larrazabal as Carmina, who doesn’t hide her feelings for him.

Patricia wants to help build bridges

November 06, 2019
PATRICIA Tumulak is elated to be chosen as a youth advocate of Mel Tiangco’s GMA Kapuso Foundation for education and school development. “Gusto ko talagang ma-involve actively sa public service kaya very timely ang pagkuha sa aking ito ng GMA Kapuso Foundation,” she says. “I like my assignment as a volunteer for education and school development kasi I know na kulang ang rooms in our public schools. I’m a child development major and my minor is special education so this is right up my alley. I have experienced teaching in a public school and meron din akong story reading project na umiikot sa iba’t ibang barangays to foster literacy. I myself talk to the leaders of the various barangays and coordinate with the public schools in their areas.”

Aga older, wiser: ‘I've learned from my mistakes'

November 05, 2019
AGA Muhlach is quite happy with the positive comments he got for his acting as Mark Alvarez, the mysterious stranger in “Nuuk”, which had its successful premiere night at SM Megamall last Monday. Those who’ve seen the movie were also impressed by the intriguing mystery in the story and the beauty of the ice-covered locations shot in the capital of Greenland. Aga is suddenly busy as the year ends with two new movies to be released consecutively in the last two months of the year. “Nuuk” opens today in theaters, November 6, and next month, he has an entry in the annual Metro-Manila Filmfest, “Miracle in Cell No. 7”, a remake of a Korean blockbuster which opens on Christmas Day.
