EVERYONE agrees that the passing year is a traumatic one, what with the pandemic disrupting our lives. Here in the Philippines, 2020 is book ended by the eruption of Taal on January 12 and two killer storms towards the end of the year, Ulysses and Vicky, plus an earthquake right on Christmas Day. We can only pray that 2021 will be a better and safer one for all of us.

Romance in Showbiz
Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati

Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati were supposed to have a grand wedding but they had to shelve it because of the pandemic and they just opted to have a simpler one with family members instead.

Those who officially got engaged this year include Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola, Morisette Amon and Dave Lamar, Kris Bernal and businessman Perry Choi, Andi Eigenmann and surfer partner Philmar Alipayo and Glaiza de Castro and Irish boyfriend David Rainey. Lovi Poe remains lovey dovey in her long distance relationship with U.S-based British boyfriend Montgromery Blencowe, but they’re not officially engaged yet.

Of course, if there were couples who got engaged, there are also those who chose to break up. First is James Reid and Nadine Lustre, who both also left the company that built them up successfully, Viva Entertainment. Both of them have not been active this year and Viva later sued Nadine for breach of contract.

Another couple who broke up is Derek Ramsay and Andrea Torres, which surprised everyone as they were so sweet and people thought they’re already headed for the altar. Former child actor Buboy Villar also admitted he has called it quits with his American partner with whom he has two kids.

The year’s breakups include Yam Concepcion and U.S. based boyfriend Miguel Cu-Unjieng, and Rhian Ramos and Israeli boyfriend Amit Borsok.
