MANILA, OCTOBER 11, 2011 (MALAYA) ETHEL RAMOS (‘She doesn’t think her two sons, Raph and Renz, will interfere, if ever – with her decision.’)

Nearly three years after the death of her husband Rudy Fernandez, Lorna Tolentino said she is not disregarding the possibility of falling in love again and, of course, have another try at marriage.

She doesn’t think her two sons, Raph and Renz, will interfere, if ever, in her decision. They, too, admit they want their mom to be happy.

Right now, however, taking a second crack at love is not Lorna’s immediate concern. She is too focused on her showbiz career, she said, and she wants to give it her focus as of now.

Now officially a TV5 contract star, Lorna is busy preparing for her first project with the network. It is a drama series titled "Glamorosa," which will co-star her for the first time with Alice Dixson.

Alice, who was featured in TV5 "Babaeng Hampaslupa," is back in town after a few months’ vacation in Canada, where she and her husband have been staying.


NOW that he is back from New York where he took up a crash course in acting and TV and movie directing, Jericho Rosales said he is raring to face the cameras again so he can put to use, so to speak, what he learned, especially from his acting classes.

Of course, he is back to hosting his reality show, "I Dare You," with Iya Villania and Melai Cantiveros. But as he said, "Iba, kapag you are before the cameras as an actor."

Thus, he said, he is happy when he learned that for his next project, he will do "Padre de Pamilya" with Christopher de Leon playing the title role. He and Piolo Pascual will play brothers.

"Tito Boyet (Christopher’s pet name) has always been my idol when it comes to acting. I’m glad that finally I’m given the chance to work with him," he stated.

Since he and Piolo both started as ABS-CBN talents, they take to each other as buddies.


By the time this issue comes out, Sam Milby may have left for New Jersey for a concert with some fellow Star Magic talents.

From New Jersey, he told us at a presscon organized for him by Star Records, which will soon release his new album, "Be Mine," he will go to Los Angeles, California, where an agent from Hollywood whom he met sometime back has enticed him to audition for a possible career – where else? – in Hollywood.

"Naisip ko to take a chance. Yes, of the possibility that I may land a Hollywood career.

"Ayokong one day, I would ask myself, what if?" Sam said.

When he returns home, he is due to start taping the series, "Alta," which will co-star him with Gretchen Barretto, Angelica Panganiban, KC Concepcion and Zanjoe Marudo.

Star Cinema has also tapped him for a possible lead role in a movie with Bea Alonzo.


"Be Mine," said Sam, is his third album and his first after three years of hiatus from the music scene. This is why, he explained, he is quite excited about its release.

"I have to admit that because I concentrated on acting, napabayaan ko ang aking singing career.

"At ngayon ko lang na-realize that I missed it so much," Sam sighed.

Already, the album’s carrier single, "Hindi Kita Iiwan," which has been playing on the radio for a while now, is getting good feedback.

The song is just one of three revivals, the other two are "I Love You So," the theme song of his movie with Bea Alonzo, and "All My Life," done in two versions. This is the theme song of Sam’s movie with KC Concepcion, titled "Forever and A Day."

The other songs included are originals, "Baliw Na Pag-Ibig" (OST of the Koreanovela, "Marry Me"); "Panaginip Ko’y Ikaw"; "Magpakailan Man"; "Your Love" (which he sang with Marie Digby); "Pushing Me Away," which he composed himself; and "Be Mine," which fellow singer Richard Poon composed and produced.
