ETHEL RAMOS (‘Bianca herself denied the issue pointing her to be the cause of John and Rachelle Ann’s break-up.’)

REPORTS said that Senator Chiz Escudero will finally break his silence about the breakup of his marriage with Christine Elizabeth "Tintin" Flores, his wife of 10 years and the mother of his twins.

It said that the Senator will divulge the truth at the premier of Kris Aquino’s new talk show on ABS-CBN. The remake of "Today with Kris" will be aired starting June 27.

In time, would Tintin do the same? According to Tintin’s friends, she is now living a normal life and taking their separation calmly.

Next month, Tintin is set to open her school of music, which is now closed for its usual monthly break.

Tintin is a music degree holder, who used to teach at the University of Santo Tomas Conservatory of Music.

She and Senator Chiz met while she was singing at the Sulo Hotel in Quezon City. Senator Chiz was then a struggling politician.

Nobody among their mutual friends knows the reason behind their decision to part ways.


John Prats recently admitted in his noontime show, "Happy, Yipee, Yehey," that he and Rachelle Ann Go were no longer an item.

He also denied that there was a third party involved.

So, it’s definitely not Bianca Manalo, who is John’s co-host in "Happy, Yipee, Yehey."

Bianca herself denied being the cause of John and Rachelle Ann’s break-up. She made it clear that she is not being courted by John. She said she is currently loveless.


Amy Austria is back to shoot again scenes for the primetime series "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin" after more than a month’s leave.

Amy recently underwent two operations and was required to rest to be back in shape.

"Mabuti nagawan ng paraan ng scriptwriter na hindi maapektuhan ang istorya ng series due to Amy’s absence," a source connected with the series said.

"Although, she’s working now, her doctor instructed the production to take care of her."

"Bukod sa restrictions… Ang pinakamatindi ay hindi siya puwedeng mag-puyat. Kaya may cut-off time siya."

Other stars in "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin" include Lorna Tolentino, John Estrada, Coco Martin, Maja Salvador, Andi Eigenmann, Ronaldo Valdez, and Dante Rivero, among others.


Now that her series on TV5, "Nagbabagang Bulaklak" has ended, Ruffa Gutierrez is planning to leave for the US with her daughters, Lorin and Venice.

She said her US visa has finally been approved.

Earlier, Ruffa was supposed to leave with the group of Dra. Vicky Belo for the inauguration and blessing of her new beauty clinic in Glendale, California, but didn’t make it since her old passport was still marked with her former husband’s, Turkish Yilmaz Bektas, family name.

Ruffa hopes that when she comes back, TV5, where she is under contract, will have a new series for her.

Ruffa is currently busy hosting her talk show, "Paparazzi," on TV5 and a movie she has agreed to do with Regal Films entitled "Hototay," co-starring John Lapus.
