If Pops Fernandez comes, can her ex-husband Martin Nievera be far behind? The exes have become like two peas in a pod, seemingly
inseparable even if they have legally parted ways.
So if either of them gets involved in an issue/controversy, the other is inevitably dragged into it.
Case in point: The break-up of Pops and Jomari Yllana's four-year romance, happening barely three weeks after Pops and
Martin's Missing You concert last Feb. 6 at the Big Dome produced by Fearless Productions, the company put up by Jomari and Singson brothers Ronald and
Ryan (whose next projects are the concert of American Idol's David Cook/David Archuleta in May and that of Britney Spears in September).
Martin is airing his side, the first time he's doing so.
"I learned about the break-up right after Valentine's. Pops texted that she had something to tell me and if I could call her.
At 3 a.m., she was still awake and we talked on the phone. She said that the day after the concert, Jom was nowhere to be found; in fact, we couldn't find
him for one whole week. We thought that he was trying to take a rest from the pressures of the concert as most producers do.
"After one week, I kept texting him, asking him to please return Pops' calls and reply to Pops' text messages. I was the
one who was texting him and that's how I became kind of involved in this. It was after Valentine's that Jom told Pops that he wanted to call it quits
with her. It took Pops by surprise and same with me. We didn't expect it."
According to initial reports, which was denied by both Pops and Jomari, money was a factor in the break-up. Pops told Funfare that she
was "clueless," left in the dark, but Jomari also told Funfare in a separate interview that it was "irreconcilable differences" that did
Martin: "I don't think money has anything to do with it. As far as money is concerned, I have a couple of
questions about that, like 1). to this day, I don't even know who really paid me, and 2). I was just told to say that Jom is the producer. What I know is
that Pops was the line producer. The concert was not an original idea; it's an old idea which came from Pops and me. It was only after Pops and I agreed on
the date and the venue that Pops said, 'Martin, would you mind if Jom is the face of the producer(s)?' Jom is the face of Fearless, parang ganoon. How
can I say no to Pops?"
In the Funfare interview, Pops admitted that she was "healing but hurting."
Martin: "It hurts me that she's hurting. I asked Pops if she wanted me to 'mediate,' to do
something, but she said, 'No, no, no. I'll be fine, I'll be fine!' I didn't really want to get involved. The reason why I'm talking to
you now is because my name cropped up in some write-ups."
No, selos (jealousy) was also not a factor. It was even Jomari who taught Martin how to kiss Pops during the pictorial which Jomari
helped "direct." The photographer was Ronnie Salvacion. It was Jomari who suggested that "kissing scene."
Martin: "But I'm there for Pops anytime she needs me. After all, we are friends. I will be there for her
So what does he think caused the break-up?
Martin: "Maybe there was just too much pressure from the concert. Pops was blaming herself and I keep telling
her, 'Stop blaming yourself!' It's funny but the (piece of) advice I am giving to her now was the same one that my family and friends gave me when
I was trying to pursue Pops after our own break-up: The most important thing for you to do right now is to not scare him away.' How? Don't force him to
explain to you or to go back to you. Jom calls the shots. He said he wanted it over and now you're hurting. I told Pops, 'Take it from someone who
scared you away. Give Jom enough space and time to think things over. If he comes back to you, then he's really yours. But if he doesn't come back to
you, then you two were not meant to be'. Pops said, 'I don't want to go through something like this again.' It hurts me to hear her say
Asked about their fans' "impossible dream" of him and Pops getting back together again, since Pops is free again and so
is he (or so unconfirmed rumors say), Martin said he doubted it.
"I'm just trying to be a friend. My priority now is to be there when Pops needs me. She has her own life now and I have my
own. We have children; we have become very good friends. All I want is for her to find someone who can make her ridiculously happy... if ever that kind of man
exists, one who will not hurt her."
And what unsolicited advice can he give Jomari?
"I don't know Jom well enough to give him advice. But this much I can tell him: Until there are no more question marks in
both your and Pops' heads, then and only then can you end up maybe not as lovers but as friends."
Well said. The voice of experience, no less!

Kung kay Dr. Hayden Kho ba maligaya si Dr. Vicki Belo, sino ba tayo para humadlang? Hindi naman
natin maibibigay ang happiness na hinahanap niya. Ayon sa kaibigang Ricky Lo, nakitang magkasama ang dalawa sa US at tipong nagkabalikan na
sila dahil ang mga ikinikilos nila ay hindi kilos ng magkaibigan lamang.
Good luck na lang sa inyong dalawa!

Sa mga suki ng dating Pilita's na dati ay katabi lamang ng Music Museum sa Greenhills, bukas na muli ito pero sa
ibang pangalan na, pero nasa Greenhills pa rin, sa kanto ng Ortigas at Club Filipino Drive.
Tangerine na ang bagong name ng Pilita's, pero dito pa rin kayo makakapunta kung gusto n'yong makarinig ng
mga musikang hindi nakakabingi kundi nakakagaan at nakakapagpasaya ng kalooban. Ito ang dahilan kung bakit dinarayo ang lugar ni Pilita bukod sa espesyalidad
nitong pork chop. Lahat ng gustong kumanta pwede at merong piyanista na gagabay sa inyo. 'Di tulad sa ibang sing-along na lugar na dudugo ang ilong
n'yo dahil 'di n'yo katono ang minus one. Sa Tangerine, ang piyanista ang susunod sa boses n'yo. Kung maswerte-swerte pa kayo, mga celebrities
pa ang makakasabay n'yong kumanta.
Regular ding kumakanta si Pilita sa sarili niyang restoran. Pagbibigay ito sa maraming request na kumanta siya. Biruin n'yo, may
masarap na pagkain na kayo, may Pilita pa. Ako, type na type kong dumayo sa lugar na ito dahil naidadaos ko rito ang aking hilig sa pagkanta.
Mukhang mahihirapan sina Ruffa Gutierrez at AiAi delas Alas na makakuha ng kahit maliit na bahagi ng
mga manonood ng SiS. Mukhang nasanay na ang mga suki nina Janice at Gelli de Belen plus Carmina
Villaroel sa simpleng kasiyahang ibinibigay ng SiS kung kaya ayaw na nilang manood ng ibang palabas sa oras na ito. Tuloy ganoon pa rin karami ang
Nakakalimutan ng maraming tumapat na sa programa na ang manonood ng SiS ay mga nanay na kung hindi man naghahanda ng pananghalian ay
gumagawa ng gawaing bahay at nag-aalaga ng mga anak. Malaking bilang din ng mga manonood sa ganitong oras ay mga katulong. Hindi kailangan ng mga nanay at
katulong ang mga malalalim na pag-uusap ng mga bagay-bagay kundi ang walang patumanggang kantahan, sayawan, lutuan at palaro na madalas hindi na nila
kailangang tingnan, basta marinig lamang. Baduy ang sabi ng ilan pero 'di ba ang mga kabaduyan ang kinawiwilihan ng masa?
Mukhang wagi na naman ang All About Eve ng GMA 7. Simula pa lamang noong Lunes pero talagang
susundan mo na. Ganoon katindi mambitin ng palabas ang Siete, aabangan at aabangan mo.
Sa ayaw at sa gusto nina Sunshine Dizon at Iza Calzado, paglalabanin sila at pagkukumparahin sa
serye. Sila kasi ang dalawa sa major characters sa istorya, sa kanila iikot ang ibang characters at sila rin ang magpu-provide ng conflict. Kung hindi sana
pumayat si Sunshine, runaway na si Iza, but with Sunshine's new look na nagbibigay sa kanya ng confidence, Iza is in for a stiffer competition, 'di ba
Lito (Iza's dad and manager)?
Dalawa sina Sunshine at Iza sa pinakamagagaling na artistang babae sa Kapuso network. Bukod sa magaganda na,
magagaling pa ring artista. Ang talento nila ay mina-maximize ng GMA 7 sa paglalagay sa kanila sa isang concert program tulad ng SOP na kung
saan nagagamit ang talento nila sa pagkanta, paghu-host at maging sa pagsayaw. Sila nina Marian Rivera, Yasmien Kurdi, Kris Bernal, Jennylyn Mercado,
Katrina Halili, Rhian Ramos, Heart Evangelista at Regine Velasquez ang mga kinikilalang reyna ng drama sa bakuran ng GMA 7 sa

MANILA, Philippines - Masaya na si JC de Vera sa salubong party ng kanyang birthday the other night na ginanap sa
Kahapon ang actual birthday niya, pero Monday night pa lang, nag-party na at katulong sa preparation ang kanyang controversial manager
na si Ms. Annabelle Rama.
Kita na sa mukha ni JC na wala na siyang mabigat na iniisip kesa noong last namin siyang makita sa presscon nila ng manager niyang si
Tita Annabelle, nasa kainitan ng issue noon sa pagitan ng kanyang manager at ni Ms. Wilma Galvante, senior vice president for entertainment ng
GMA 7 na siya ang pinagmulan ng matinding sagutan nang umiyak siya sa storycon ng SRO Cinema Serye.
Pero kahapon, nag-issue na ang GMA 7 ng statement para tapusin ang issue.
Read ninyo ang ilang part:
"Atty. Felipe Gozon together with Annette Gozon Abrogar met with Ms. Annabelle Rama regarding
the issue of the contract of JC de Vera. In the meeting, Atty. Gozon explained to Ms. Rama that the option to renew JC de Vera's contract was with the
Network. Ms. Rama understood and said that JC de Vera wants to stay in GMA long term and he just wants to be assured of GMA's support for his
"Atty. Gozon told Ms. Rama that JC de Vera had the support of the station in the past and that there has been no change in this
support. Ms. Rama agreed to accept the roles that will be assigned to JC by the Network. As previously planned, JC will soon be appearing in a Sine
Novela in GMA's Sine Novela timeslot.
"Atty. Gozon explained to Annabelle Rama that in the issue of casting talents, if there are any concerns from the talents
themselves or their managers, they can always reason out with the Network and the Network will listen to what they have to say. The final decision, however,
shall always rest with the Network. Ms. Rama agreed with Atty. Gozon's point."
Anyway, dumating ang mga kaibigan ni JC sa showbiz at maging ang mga fans na nag-uunahan sa pagbati sa kanya sa nasabing
Parang bagay si Charlene Gonzales sa morning show. Napanood ko siya sa Ruffa and Ai kahapon - wala
si AiAi (delas Alas) at mukhang click din sila ni Ruffa (Gutierrez).
Eh kung isama na lang kaya siya kina Ruffa and AiAi?
Tutal naman tatlo ang host ng katapat nilang SiS. Baka mas lalong tumaas ang rating nila.
Eh bakit nga ba walang show si Charlene sa ABS-CBN? Sayang naman ang galing niya sa pagho-host.

Nagtatanong ang isang kaibigan ni Paolo Contis. Bakit daw na-delete ang kanyang Facebook at
Multiply accounts sa Internet?
Hindi ko alam ang explanation. Matagal ko nang hindi nakakausap si Paolo. Malapit na nga akong ma-insecure dahil naturingan na alaga
ko si Paolo pero hindi siya nakikipag-communicate sa akin.
Masyado yata siyang busy sa mga tapings ng Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang, My Dad is Better Than Your
Dad at kay Lian Paz.
Nababalitaan ko na lang ang mga nangyayari sa buhay ni Paolo. Magbabakasyon siya sa Bohol sa kanyang birthday sa March 14 at kasama
niya si Lian at ang pamilya nito. In love talaga si Paolo kaya hayaan muna natin siya na magpakaligaya. Hindi ko naman maibibigay sa kanya ang happiness na
naibibigay ni Lian.
Talagang nag-compare daw ako, o!
Sa Biyernes ang punta ni Alfred Vargas sa Singapore para sa taping dito ng All About Eve.
'Yan ang sagot ko sa mga kababayan natin sa Singapore na sumulat sa akin at nagtatanong sa araw ng taping ng cast ng All About
Eve. Gusto raw nilang makita nang personal ang mga artista ng bagong primetime show ng GMA 7.
Sa pagkakaalam ko, kukunan sa Orchard Road ang mga eksena ng All About Eve. May taping din sila sa Chinatown. Maliit lang ang
Singapore. Sa dami ng mga Pilipino doon, imposibleng hindi kumalat ang balita na may nagaganap na shooting sa kanilang lugar.
Madaling makita ang T-shirt store ni Francis Magalona dahil nasa ground floor lamang ito ng Broadway
Hindi mahirap hanapin ang tindahan ni Francis dahil sa mahabang pila ng mga tao na gustong bumili ng kanyang mga T-shirts.
Dinumog at pinipilahan ang tindahan mula nang sumakabilang-buhay si Francis kaya hindi nakapagtataka kung sold out na ang mga
T-shirts na ibinebenta sa 3 Stars and A Sun boutique ni Francis.
So, alam na ng PSN reader na si Vincent Cipriano ang location ng boutique na puwede nilang
puntahan ng kanyang mga kaibigan na gustong magkaroon ng souvenir shirts from Francis. Hindi ako sure sa exact price ng mga T-shirts pero ang sabi ng ilang
bumili, very affordable ang presyo.
Ikinuwento ni Angeli Pangilinan sa mga reporters na pumunta sa presscon ni Gary Valenciano na
kinausap siya ni Ely Buendia sa concert ng Eraserheads noong Sabado.
Ang sey ni Ely, baka raw puwedeng si Gary V. ang tumapos sa album na ginagawa nila ni Francis M.
Hindi pa tapos ang album na may pamagat na The Sickos Project dahil nakamatayan na ito ni Francis M. I'm sure,
bukal sa loob ni Gary V. na tapusin niya ang unfinished album ng dalawang magkaibigan.
Mapapanood na uli si Rich Asuncion sa SOP sa darating na Linggo dahil tinawagan na siya ng
Isang buwan din na hindi umapir si Rich sa SOP dahil naging busy siya sa Bb. Pilipinas contest. Hindi nabalewala ang
pagsali ni Rich sa beauty pageant dahil 1st runner-up siya.
Wala na sigurong masasabi ang mga nagsalita noon na malabong manalo si Rich dahil mas matatangkad ang kanyang mga kalaban. Hindi biro
ang sumali sa isang beauty contest 'no! Kahit sino, kakabahan sa question and answer portion, lalo na kung nasa harap sila ng maraming tao.
Kung madaling sumali sa beauty contest, noon pa sana ako naging beauty queen 'no!

Until the very moment when the urn containing the ashes of Francis Magalona was buried at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City
yesterday, his widow, Pia Arroyo-Magalona, the Pillar of Strength, kept her widely-admired composure because that was how Francis wanted things to be: That is,
no excessive show of grieving, no copious tears (even if many of the sympathizers couldn't help it), no Good Friday faces but perhaps Easter Sunday
Even the priest, Rev. Fr. Bert Ampil, who said the Mass Tuesday night at the Christ The King Chapels in Green Meadows, Quezon City,
where Francis' remains lay since Friday night, was in a buoyant mood, reminding Francis not to really "Rest In Peace" but, yes, to "Rap In
The 9 p.m. Mass preceded the eulogy in which Pia, along with her and Francis' eight children, recalled their happy moments with
Francis and thanked those who sympathized with them. Regine Velasquez did a heart-rending rendition of Pangako; her boyfriend Ogie Alcasid also sang, holding
back tears. But Michael V., one of Francis' bosom buddies, broke down, assuring Francis how much he love(s) him. "I love you, Francis. You know
that," sobbed Michael V. Gary sang a touching song about friendship.
Malou Choa-Fagar, an
executive of Tape, Inc. which produces the GMA noontime show Eat, Bulaga! which Francis co-hosted until he was taken ill in August last year, bade "my
Peter Pan" a tearful goodbye. The sober but emotional eulogy was capped by a video prepared by the Bulaga! guys (led by Joey de Leon, Vic Sotto and former
Sen. Tito Sotto).
A member of the Camera Club said in his tribute that Francis, an avid camera bug, qualified for membership after only six months
instead of the required one-year probation, and won a prize in the club's Sensual Photo contest by submitting a close-up shot of Pia's sensuous
After the Mass that ended after midnight, Francis' remains were brought to the Funeraria Paz on Araneta Ave., Quezon City, for the
cremation that lasted for more than four hours. The ashes, collected in a bronze urn, were brought back to the Christ The King Chapels where a necrological
Mass was held before Francis was brought to his final resting place, sent off by family members, friends, colleagues and fans, many of whom lined the route
from Green Meadows to Marikina City - and by a dozen balloons and butterflies of varied colors that lit up the summer sky.
The urn was buried
beside the tombs of Pia's relatives and not, as earlier reported, beside those of Francis' parents, Tita Duran and Pancho Magalona, which are at the
Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque City.
Up there where angels sing, Francis must be rapping to his heart's content. Down here, his fans continue to play and replay his
nationalistic songs (Mga Kababayan Ko, Kaleidoscope World, etc.).
Malacañang has posthumously honored Francis with a Presidential Medal of Merit for promoting patriotism through music.
There's a move to make Francis a National Artist, an honor he more than deserves.
Go ahead, Francis, Rap In Peace!

• Sad news: Maricel Laxa has lost her baby last Monday at the St. Luke's Medical Center, barely three
weeks after Funfare reported that she was "positive." It was a case of anembryonic pregnancy, meaning the baby sac developed but not the
baby itself. It would have been the fifth child of Maricel and husband Anthony Pangilinan who was beside Maricel when she received the sad news.
• Congratulations to Paula Bianca L. Cuneta who is graduating magna cum laude with a Masscom degree from St.
Scholastica's College Manila. Paula is the daughter of Danny Cuneta, general-manager of PAGCOR in Cebu, and his wife Maribel Lorenzo.
• After editing his own TV special (actually the TV version of his Big Dome concert) garyV @25, Gary
Valenciano is now busy producing and directing Bible anecdotes podcasts for the Holy Week, for his garyv.com and share.ovi.com/garyv
websites. Gary himself voices David and Jesus while Jericho Rosales plays Bartimaeus (the blind guy) and Mari Kaimo narrates. Donita Rose will also play a
role. Gary has been asked by Ely Buendia to help finish his (Ely's) and the late Francis' album of inspirational songs.
Even long before he was diagnosed to be suffering from leukemia (the most aggressive type) in August last year, Francis
Magalona knew that he would die young.
"Yes, he told me that during our early years," confessed Francis' widow Pia Arroyo who is revealing more
hitherto unknown facts about Francis in this afternoon's edition of Startalk (GMA, 2:30 to 5 p.m.). "We were newly married then and I told
him to stop saying that, that we should stay happy and look forward to enjoying life with our children."
In hindsight, Pia, who has remained "a pillar of strength" up to this very minute, said that she now realized why
Francis was in a hurry to accomplish so many things, which he did. In his 44 years, Francis the Master Rapper recorded albums of nationalistic songs (Mga
Kababayan, Kaleidoscope World, etc.) that cemented his reputation as, if I may coin a new title for him, the Pambansang Boses.
"And that, I think, is the best legacy he left not only for us his family but for all Filipinos," added Pia who,
together with her eight children, were in Malacañang a few days ago to receive a posthumous Presidential Medal of Merit Award.
Last Sunday which marked the ninth day after Francis' death and the baptism of daughter Clara, 8, Maxene noticed a brown
butterfly hovering around the family during a Mass.
"I knew it was Papa," said Maxene, eyes welling with tears. "Sarado ang doors at windows,
so how could a butterfly enter and stay that long? It just disappeared without anybody noticing it."
In October, the month when her dad would have turned 45 (Oct. 4), Maxene will graduate from Ateneo with a degree in Social
Sciences and she plans to write a thesis about her father.
"It was only after he died did I learn a lot more about Papa," said Maxene.
Does Vicki have a 'Hayden' agenda?
hired Adel Tamano, UNO spokesperson and president of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM), as her new lawyer (replacing the less-than-flawless Raymund
Fortun), did Dr. Vicki Belo (still the unchallenged holder of the "Poster Girl for [Mis]Behavior" title) have a "Hayden" motive?
Reacting to Funfare's short item yesterday, those close to the doktora said, half jokingly,
"I'm sure! Knowing her, gusto lang niya papag-selosin si Hayden (Kho)!"
The doktora insisted that she and Hayden have remained "only friends," since she said she is friendly
with her exes (Joey Santos, agree or disagree?), even if they were spotted lovey-dovey (Funfare stands on its story) in L.A. and they are soon
traveling "twogether" to Hong Kong (with their lad-in-waiting DJ Mo as ready, willing and able companion as usual). Isn't love lovelier the
second time around?
Adel is as good-looking as, if not better-looking (and certified macho) than Hayden, according to the
"ex-couple's" watchers and he (Adel) is definitely a plus factor in repairing the doktora's badly-damaged public image.
Now, could it be true that the doktora has hired an A-list PR agency to sanitize her public image?
She can help herself a lot by doing only one thing; BEHAVE!

May bago akong bestfriend at Pinky Tobiano ang kanyang name. Si Pinky ang produ ng
H.O.P.E. CD ni Lorna Tolentino sa Star Records.
Nagkakilala kami ni Pinky sa presscon ng bagong CD ni LT. Naging bestfriend ko siya dahil tinupad niya ang kanyang OPM sa
akin. Kung anuman 'yon, sa aming dalawa na lang.
Cancer survivor si Pinky. Naging magkaibigan sila ni LT nang magkaroon ng kanser si Rudy Fernandez.
Si Pinky ang kasama ni LT nang pumunta ito sa Holy Land para magkaroon ng spiritual healing.
Malaking tulong si Pinky kaya nagkaroon ng katuparan ang pangarap ni LT na makapaglabas ng CD album para sa memory ni
Rudy Ang Rudy Fernandez Cancer Foundation at Pinky Cares Foundation ang mga beneficiaries ng mga kikitain ng H.O.P.E. CD.
Touched na touched ako sa prologue at epilogue ni LT sa Volume 2 ng H.O.P.E. CD na may pamagat na Wings of The
Ang ganda ng pagkaka-deliver ni LT sa prologue at epilogue na isinulat ni Bibeth Orteza.
Nagustuhan ko rin ang 12 songs sa CD album, ang Far From Home at Kalooban Mo na kinanta
Ang pagkanta ni Sharon Cuneta sa Special Memory, Let It Be ni Aga
Muhlach, ang Doon Lang nina Jinggoy Estrada, Bong Revilla at Phillip Salvador, ang Stand By
Me nina Boyet de Leon, Ricky Davao, Edgar Mortiz at Bodie Cruz, ang I'll Be There For You/I Will Be
Here ni Piolo Pascual at ang Ikaw Lamang ni Gary Valenciano.
Bago nagsimula ang presscon, nagsindi ng kandila si Pinky para kay Rudy. Naniniwala raw siya na naroroon si Daboy ng mga
oras na 'yon.
Mabibili na sa mga record bars ang touching CD album ni LT. Take note, gold na ang unang volume ng H.O.P.E. CD kaya
naglabas ng volume 2 ang Star Records.
Ang sipag-sipag ni LT na mag-promote ng album. Willing nga siya na pumunta sa ibang bansa para ma-promote niya sa
TFC ang project nila ni Pinky.
Sulit na sulit ang ibabayad ng mga bibili ng album dahil talagang nakaka-inspire ito. Hindi nakakahiyang irekomenda ang
Nakapili na si LT ng kuwento para sa guesting niya sa Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK). May taping na siya sa March
28 at March 30.
Natagalan ang pag-apir ni LT sa MMK dahil ayaw niyang ma-diappoint ang kanyang mga tagahanga.
Matutuwa na ang mga fans ni LT dahil malapit na uli nilang mapanood sa TV ang kanilang idol. Hindi na siguro magtatampo
ang kanyang fan na panay ang pagpapadala sa akin ng e-mail dahil bihira raw akong magsulat tungkol sa mga activities ni LT. Wala akong isinusulat noon dahil
busy pa si Lorna sa pag-aasikaso sa musoleo ni Rudy na ipinagagawa niya.
Malungkot pa si LT kaya na-delay nang husto ang pag-apir niya sa TV. Naintindihan ko ang kanyang sitwasyon dahil nine
months pa lang na nawawala si Daboy.
Watch ninyo ngayong hapon ang Startalk dahil maglalabas ng statement ang Kapuso
management tungkol sa pagkuha ni Manny Pacquiao sa ABS-CBN bilang media partner.
Done deal na ang partnership ni Manny at ng ABS-CBN dahil kung hindi pa sila nagkakaayos, hindi maglalakas-loob ang
Kapamilya network na maglabas ng statement.
Makarating kaya sa korte ang problema ni Manny at ng Solar Sports? 'Yan ang katanungan na hahanapan
ng sagot ng Startalk.

Obviously fully recovered from her painful breakup with Dingdong Dantes, Karylle turned 28 yesterday and her fond wish is, contrary to
what you may be thinking, not to find a new (better-than-Dingdong) boyfriend but for her estranged parents, Zsa Zsa Padilla and Dr. Modesto Tatlonghari, to
have a closure (read: legal and official) in their separation.
You see, the petition for annulment of marriage filed by Zsa Zsa has been pending in court for years, preventing her and her beloved
Dolphy from getting married.
"Sana soon," Karylle said during the presscon for Symphony of Hope, the Side A concert with the Philippine Philharmonic
Orchestra (PPO) in which she's guesting, slated for Friday, March 27, 8 p.m. at the CCP. (For tickets, call Ticketworld at 891-9999. Or
Also during the
presscon, the media guys requested Karylle and Side A soloist Joey Generoso for some "samples" and Karylle obliged with two "meaningful"
songs, Forevermore (a Side A hit;...you were just a dream that I once knew...) and I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me (...as long as the stars shine
down from the heavens, long as the rivers run to the sea; I'll never get over you getting over me), and then a duet with Joey of I Finally Found Someone
(...my life has just begun, I finally found someone...).
These days, Karylle looks sexier. If Dingdong could see her now!
It will be Valentine in May when Patti Page performs at the Araneta Coliseum on the 8th, starting at 8 p.m., which happens to be
Mother's Day. Another show is scheduled for May 10 at the Grand Pacific Ballroom of the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City.
It's another trip down Nostalgia Lane when Patti sings again her well-loved songs, such as Tennessee Waltz, Mockingbird Hill, How
Much is That Doggie In The Window, You Belong To Me, Changing Partners, This Is My Song and Unchained Melody.
Patti began her career in
the '50s and has sold more than 100 million records. In 1998, she recorded her first live album, Live at Carnegie Hall: The 50th Anniversary Concert, which
won for her her first Grammy (for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance) in 1999. In 2000, she released a new album, Brand New Tennessee Waltz, which features
harmonies with established country music stars like Alison Kraus and Trisha Yearwood.
(Note: The Patti Page: The Greatest Hits Tour, set for May 8 at the Araneta Coliseum, is produced by All Access
Productions. Tickets for the Big Dome show are priced at P4,000 for VIP Limited/Patron A, P3,500 for VIP/Patron B, P3,000 for Lower Box, P1,800 for Upper Box
A, P1,000 for Upper B and P600 for General Admission. Call Ticketnet at 911-5555.)

Ateneo ComArts graduate, Cory began her career in television with BBC-2 in 1982. Like ABS-CBN head Charo Santos-Concio, she has risen from the ranks. Taking
Cory's place as head of Entertainment Production is Linggit Tan who used to be with Production Development and was the Control Head of TV Production. The
network is now ruled by women.
Paolo Pineda has been appointed as head of the ABS-CBN Business Development and Connie Nolasco Lopez as ABS-CBN Interactive Managing Director.
However, there's no truth to the rumor that Monchet Olives was fired by ABS-CBN boss Gabby Lopez. "He's on sabbatical," said ABS-CBN PR man
Bong Osorio. "When he returns, he will relinquish his position as head of the Cable Channels and take on a new job."
• A welcome addition to the cast of the ABS-CBN tearjerker teleserye May Bukas Pa is Gabby Concepcion (photo with
Zaijian Jaranilla who plays Santino). It's Gabby's second teleserye for the network, following Iisa Pa Lamang, and his first TV
project after that unfortunate incident last year involving his manager.

Pag-aawayan pa yata ng magkakaibigang aktres ang nasulat na pagsunod ng isang basketball player na nali-link sa isa sa kanila sa
Boracay. Pinaghihinalaan ng grupo ang kasama nilang magandang actress na siyang nag-leak sa press sa pagdating du'n ng lalake.
Ang magandang actress lang daw ang may mga kaibigang reporters na puwedeng i-text at itsika ang pagdating ng basketeer sa Boracay
lalo't kompleto sa detalye ang nasulat mula sa oras nang pagdating at pag-alis ng lalake.
In fairness sa actress, hindi siya ang source ng balita at kahit may mga kaibigang press people, hindi ang tipo niya ang magtsitsika
lalo't personal. Kung siya nga, nahihirapan ang press na pasagutin ng personal questions, ibang tao pa kaya ang itsismis?
Anyway, itinanggi ng basetball player sa isang radio interview na sumunod siya sa Boracay, 'di raw siya nanliligaw sa isang
actress na kabi-break lang sa nobyong actor. May girlfriend daw siya, kaya 'di siya puwedeng manligaw sa iba.
Ipinarating namin ang denial ng lalake sa aming source at "I stand by my story" ang sagot.
Sinisipag si KC Concepcion sa pagbibigay ng update sa taping nila ni Piolo Pascual ng Lovers in Paris Sa latest text message nito sa
manager niyang si Shirley Kuan na na-forward sa amin, sabi ni KC, mabilis matuto ng French dialogue ang actor, pero stressed out sa pag-i-effort na matuto pati
ang tamang French accent.
Sobrang lamig din daw sa Paris at mabuti na lang, hindi naka-top down ang car na gamit ni Piolo sa eksena, unlike sa original version
ng Korean novela.
Unforgettable raw ang French lessons.
Itsinika rin ni KC na sobrang matataas ang mga puno sa location nila, pero walang mga dahon dahil nalalagas 'pag

MANILA, Philippines - SEEN : Thanks but no thanks ang message ni Joey de Leon sa YES
Magazine. Kasali si Joey sa listahan ng 50 Most Powerful People in Showbiz ng YES Magazine ngunit hindi siya
sang-ayon sa pangalan na nasa number one slot.
Hindi nagbanggit ng pangalan si Joey ngunit malinaw na si Willie Revillame ang kanyang tinutukoy.

Nag-mature ang mukha ni Piolo. Nabawasan ang kanyang X factor.
