GMA, hindi na media partner ng concert nina Pops at Martin

January 16, 2009

Hindi na pala ang GMA 7 ang media partner ng Missing You concert nina Martin Nievera at Pops Fernandez dahil hindi raw pumayag ang ABS-CBN.

Ang narinig namin, medyo na-offend ang mga taga-Dos sa magagandang pahayag ni Jomari para sa GMA 7.

Since talent ng Kapa­milya network sina Martin at Jomari, hindi na nila ito pinayagang makipag-media partner sa Kapuso network.

Naudlot tuloy ang ma­gandang promo na ini­handa ng GMA 7 para sa naturang concert.

Pops, binastos sa Cebu?

January 16, 2009

MAY report na nakarating sa amin from Cebu sa pamamagitan ng isang text message na diumano’y binastos si Pops Fernandez sa concert na ginanap sa Waterfront Hotel nu’ng Lunes ng gabi.

Si Pops ay kasama nina Kuh Ledesma at Zsa Zsa Padilla sa Divas 4 Divas concert on that particular day.

Hindi naman pumuwede si Regine Velasquez dahil may previous commitment ito.

Ayon sa kuwento, pinalakpakan daw ng mga Cebuano ang performance nina Kuh at Zsa Zsa.

Pero nu’ng turn na ni Pops, biglang quiet ang audience.

“Nu’ng tawagin ang pangalan niya, walang pumalakpak. Mangiyak-ngiyak siya (Pops). Pero kahit ganu’n ang nangyari, itinuloy pa rin niya ang performance,” kuwento ng aming source. Continue reading

Kampo ni Dyan, pumalag dahil sa mga batikos

January 16, 2009

BINASAG na ng kampo ng sportscaster na si Dyan Castillejo ang pananahimik ukol sa inani nitong batikos at puna sa diumano’y “abusadong” pagtutok at pag-i-interview sa Pambasang Kamao na si Manny Pacquiao.

Narito ang mahabang depensa galing sa ABS-CBN Corporate PR: “Sunud-sunod at walang mintis ang mga binibitawang report ng senior sports correspondent ng ABS-CBN na si Dyan Castillejo.

“Kumbaga sa boksing, naka-knock-out na siya sa mga eksklusibong report  tungkol sa pambansang kamao na si Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao.

“Sa tulong ng magigiting na cameramen na sina Val Cuenca at Rene Casibang, sa ABS-CBN lumabas ang unang interview kay Pacquiao pagkatapos ng laban kay Oscar Dela Hoya at ang unang panayam at footage kay Jinkee Pacquiao pagkatapos manganak sa pang-apat na si Queen Elizabeth. Continue reading

Actor Ricardo Montalban dead at 88

January 16, 2009

LOS ANGELES — Mexican actor Ricardo Montalban, best known for his role as Mr. Roarke in the 1970s-80s popular television series “Fantasy Island,” has died in Los Angeles, a city official said. He was 88.

With mellifluous voice and distinctive Spanish accent, Montalban also stood out in US television folklore as a Chrysler sponsor in the 1970s when he advertised the Cordoba’s “soft Corinthian leather” interior, much parodied by comics for years.

Montalban died at his home in Los Angeles, city councilman Eric Garcetti said. He did not provide a cause of death.

Montalban was wheelchair-bound and left with fragile health after a 1993 spinal operation, according to local press reports. Continue reading

Cristine, mas mayaman na kay ate Ara

January 16, 2009

INAMIN naman ni Cristine Reyes na mas may pera siya ngayon kesa sa kanyang Ate Ara.

Pinauutang na lang daw niya ang kanyang ate Ara ng milyong piso kapag nangangailangan ito lalo’t nalugi nga ang ipinundar nitong restaurant at ngayon ay nagsara na.

Aniya, wala naman itong kaso at hindi na raw isyu dahil magkapatid naman sila.

“Kapatid ko ‘yon, si-yempre dapat lang na tulungan ko siya sa oras ng kagipitan,” pahayag ni Cristine.

Sa ngayon kahit loveless itong si Cristine ay masaya na rin siya dahil sa kanyang teleseryeng Eva Fonda ng Primetime Bida ng Kapamilya network. Mas pinagtutuu-nan daw niya ng pansin ngayon ang teyping ng nasabing serye kesa mag-hanap ng boyfriend. Continue reading

Meet the new Golden Boy: Pacquiao upsets Dela Hoya

December 7, 2008

MANILA, Philippines – Just a year ago, Manny Pacquiao facing Oscar de la Hoya appeared an improbable proposition.

But Pacquiao’s victory over his iconic opponent on Sunday (Saturday, US time) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas could not have been thinkable in a lifetime.

Pacquiao carried out his game plan to textbook perfection and perhaps closed a chapter in the history of boxing after he defeated the legendary de la Hoya after eight rounds on Sunday (Saturday, US time) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Active, methoidcal and simply dominant, Pacquiao took his time to trim down de la Hoya. His patience paid dividends midway through the match as de la Hoya’s left-side cheek began to swell. Continue reading

Pacquiao’s intensity awes strength, fitness coach

December 1, 2008

MANILA, Philippines – After nine weeks in training camp and around 159 rounds of sparring, it is time for Manny Pacquiao to finally taper off for his 12-round fight with Oscar de la Hoya on December 7 (December 6, US time) at the MGM Grand Garden Hotel.

But for a fighter as intense as Pacquiao, slowing down doesn’t appear to be a part of his vocabulary.

Alex Arisa, Pacquiao’s conditioning and fitness coach, is amazed at how his fighter has managed to push himself to the limit and still keep his passion and concentration at the same high level.

“He’s probably the only fighter who can dictate how hard he can push himself,” said Arisa, who is working for Pacquiao for the second time after taking over from Justine Fortune last June or just prior to the bout with former world lightweight champion David Diaz. Continue reading
