ABS-CBN contract artist Piolo Pascual said at a recent media gathering organized by E! News Asia that he had been “scolded by someone of authority” for publicly declaring that he wanted to quit show biz.
“I was advised to stop talking about retirement anymore. Eventually, I realized that I should be grateful for what I have. I am still offered different projects, which I should welcome,” said Piolo. “I’m very candid in all my interviews. I guess that’s why I sometimes get in trouble. I don’t exactly plan what to say. This is because I’ve dealt with local writers for so long that they’ve already become my friends,” the actor explained. “I simply answer questions that I’m asked. At this point in my career, what else is there to keep hidden?”

Piolo said he was going through a tough time at work and was feeling drained when that eventful press interview took place. “Like most people, I was going through a certain phase in my life then. Being an actor can sometimes be overwhelming, but I should no longer say I’m tired of my profession,” he pointed out. “I’m currently tackling a father role. Then there’s another film being developed for me and a concert.” Piolo told the Inquirer that he wanted to be a better father to his son Iñigo, 17, whom he finally allowed to join show biz. “I’d like to spend more time with him. He wants me to stay with him in the United States, where he is based, but I want him here. I guess it’s just time management. We’re going to have to come up with a compromise.”

Asked whether it was tough being dad to a teenager, the 37-year-old replied: “I used to think it would be hard, but it’s not, actually. Not now, when we get to talk more. We are able to discuss serious subjects. I’m thankful that he is a good kid.” 30-minute feature  ---Piolo will be featured in a 30-minute TV special to be aired on E! on Sept. 28, 9 p.m. A story on Australian-Filipino actress and TV host Anne Curtis was aired on the same cable channel in 2013. A reality series featuring the Gutierrez family, “It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez” debuted in June and will have a new season starting October.* READ MORE...

ALSO: What Director Gina Alajar wants from newbie actors 

SEPT 26 --Gina Alajar has a requirement to those who want to become a star — come to the set prepared. Gina Alajar A lot of kids nowadays want to become famous actors. Veteran actress-director Gina Alajar herself has seen the fervor during auditions for GMA-7’s newest offering “Yagit,” which she is directing and due on-air in October. “Sobra, grabe! Ang daming gusto mag-artista — lahat, ke me talent, walang talent, ke me itsura, walang itsura – ’yun ang hindi ko maintindihan,” she relates.

Although she’s not one to discourage young aspirants from dreaming big, she advises those who want a career in show business not to rely simply on good looks. “Ang bottomline naman talaga palagi is dapat may talent ka… para sa akin, ang advantage lang ng maganda at guwapo ay meron ka ng face na maibebenta right away. Kahit picture-picture ka lang muna, meron ka nang maa-attract. Du’n sa hindi masyadong kagandahan at kaguwapuhan, kailangan talagang may talent kang mailabas,” she says. Alajar shares that she did not stand out for her looks when she auditioned for her first-ever showbiz project “Kaibigan Kong Sto. Niño” in 1967. Still, she went on to notch a string of box-office hits as a child star, going on to carve a lasting career in show business. Today she is a respected TV and film director.

Among Alajar’s frustrations is working with neophyte actors who don’t take their job seriously. “It’s frustrating when you cannot get what you want from an actor. It’s really frustrating because I know it can be done. Frustrating din when you know that an actor is lazy – ‘yung ma-memorize lang (ang lines okay na), ni hindi niya pinag-aralan (‘yung motivation ng > character niya),” she shares. Among young stars that she admires for their work ethics are Elmo Magalona and Janine Gutierrez. “’Pag nagbibigay ka ng instructions dun sa dalawa, nakikinig, ‘pag hindi nila makuha, magtatanong, ’pag pinakita ko kung ano ’yung gusto ko, gagawin nila,” Alajar shares. *READ MORE...

Piolo Pascual told to keep mum on quitting


THE ACTOR says he is thankful that his son Iñigo is a good teenager. Rodel Rotoni


MANILA, SEPTEMBER 29, 2014
(INQUIRER) 
By Marinel R. Cruz - ABS-CBN contract artist Piolo Pascual said at a recent media gathering organized by E! News Asia that he had been “scolded by someone of authority” for publicly declaring that he wanted to quit show biz.

“I was advised to stop talking about retirement anymore. Eventually, I realized that I should be grateful for what I have.

I am still offered different projects, which I should welcome,” said Piolo.

“I’m very candid in all my interviews. I guess that’s why I sometimes get in trouble. I don’t exactly plan what to say. This is because I’ve dealt with local writers for so long that they’ve already become my friends,” the actor explained. “I simply answer questions that I’m asked. At this point in my career, what else is there to keep hidden?”

Piolo said he was going through a tough time at work and was feeling drained when that eventful press interview took place. “Like most people, I was going through a certain phase in my life then. Being an actor can sometimes be overwhelming, but I should no longer say I’m tired of my profession,” he pointed out.

“I’m currently tackling a father role. Then there’s another film being developed for me and a concert.”

Piolo told the Inquirer that he wanted to be a better father to his son Iñigo, 17, whom he finally allowed to join show biz.

“I’d like to spend more time with him. He wants me to stay with him in the United States, where he is based, but I want him here. I guess it’s just time management. We’re going to have to come up with a compromise.”

Asked whether it was tough being dad to a teenager, the 37-year-old replied: “I used to think it would be hard, but it’s not, actually. Not now, when we get to talk more. We are able to discuss serious subjects. I’m thankful that he is a good kid.”

30-minute feature

Piolo will be featured in a 30-minute TV special to be aired on E! on Sept. 28, 9 p.m. A story on Australian-Filipino actress and TV host Anne Curtis was aired on the same cable channel in 2013. A reality series featuring the Gutierrez family, “It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez” debuted in June and will have a new season starting October.

* According to NBC Universal country manager Liza Latinazo, choosing a subject for these specials is “not easy.” She explained: “A lot of research goes into it; it’s a very thorough process. We’d like to think that the feature is an acknowledgment of the achievements of the celebrity’s life and career.”

Very reserved

Latinazo added: “Anne has the most number of followers on social media websites, and lives a very public life [but] Piolo is different. Although he’s been in the spotlight for almost two decades, he is very reserved. He is private, naturally quiet and shy. Because of this, there’s always a mystery about him. and so he continues to intrigue us.”

She said the feature on Piolo will delve “deeper into his life and try to elicit a better understanding of the man himself, and his relationship with his son.” A camera crew followed Piolo around for five days—to his home, workplace, even to the gym.

Intimate

“We developed a pretty good and intimate relationship with him,” Latinazo stressed. “We spoke with his closest friends, people who know him best. This is a tell-all, show-all and definitely a must-watch.”

Piolo said he didn’t remember much about his interview with E! “I said a mouthful. I don’t know what to expect. In the beginning, it felt like I was part of a reality show. After a while, I became less conscious of the cameras, and my actions became more spontaneous,” he recalled.

Actresses Toni Gonzaga, Iza Calzado and Maja Salvador, as well as some of Piolo’s closest relatives were interviewed about the actor.

Piolo saw the program as “a great opportunity to share my story with the [Asian] region.” He stressed, “They will see that Filipino artists are well-rounded. Here, actors can also perform, host TV shows, become producers of his or her own movies or TV programs, and even do business on the side.”

‘Gutz’ made Annabelle Rama ‘famous’ By Oliver M. Pulumbarit | Philippine Daily InquirerSeptember 22, 2014 | 12:00 pm


GUTIERREZ family (clockwise from top row): Elvis, Raymond, Richard, Eddie, Annabelle, Ruffa

The Gutierrez family is elated that the second season of the E! reality program, “It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez,” is 10 episodes long. Its initial run of six episodes aired from June to July this year.

At the press con for the new season (premiering Oct. 5, 9 p.m.), the family members announced that the successful series to air across Southeast Asia was being shot and that, in fact, six episodes were finished.

Gutierrez matriarch and “boss” Annabelle Rama claimed that the show made her famous. Many foreigners have begun asking for photos with her, she said.

“First season, bigla akong sumikat, thank you naman,” she said.

Annabelle, who is coproducing this season with son Richard, said that she wasn’t really bossy. “Hindi sinasadya. Talagang ang aming family, parang mga sira-ulo.”

New romance

Eldest child Ruffa hinted that she might have a romantic interest in the show. “Whether my mom likes it or not, I’m ready to fall in love—hopefully this year.”

Annabelle responded, “I hope it’s not Yilmaz (Bektas, Ruffa’s former husband). Sino ’yung lalake, Ruffa?”

“You’ll find out,” Ruffa replied.

“She always surprises me,” said Annabelle. “Every time I see her, she has a different boyfriend.”

“[When] somebody gives me chocolates or flowers, it doesn’t mean he’s my boyfriend,” Ruffa retorted. “You call him a suitor; you should be gracious and accept.”

* Annabelle was unconvinced. Referring to former suitors, she said, “If I didn’t like a guy, I didn’t entertain him. But if I did like him, I would call him [myself] and have sex with him!”

Gutierrez patriarch Eddie added to the riotous banter: “I met [Annabelle] in Cebu City, where I was doing a show. She invited me right away to a resort!”

Annabelle was quick to say that the new season is technically improved, and that there was “no pressure at all” to top the first season’s content. But the new director, Karen Wiggins, said there was “absolutely” pressure on her to make the show even more watchable.

The Australian director said Annabelle made it easy for her. “She’s a reality producer’s dream—[she creates] drama, she is funny, and she talks about sex a lot! We are concentrating on story this season… we try to understand our characters in the most well-rounded way possible.”

One of the Gutierrez kids, Raymond, said that they were all used to criticism by now. “We’re kind of over people judging us. It’s so last year!”

This time, he added, it’s his turn to reveal a big secret: “Kung last season si Chard ang may pasabog, this season ako naman.” He was referring to his twin brother Richard and girlfriend Sarah Lahbati’s revelation that they had become parents to a baby boy, Zion.

“It’s been a great adventure so far, being a dad to Zion,” Richard said. “It has changed my life in a very positive way.

You’ll see that this season.”


SARAH Lahbati and son Zion

New series regulars are another Gutierrez son, former child star Elvis, and his longtime girlfriend Alexa Uichico, who is currently pregnant.

“Elvis and I have been together for nine years,” said Alexa. “Everybody can relate to our relationship because we’re a normal couple doing normal things.”

Raymond quipped, “I don’t know how they lasted nine years—I can’t last with anyone for a weekend!”

When asked by a member of the press if she and Eddie still had intimate relations despite the busy schedule, Annabelle said, “Of course! How can we not?”

Eddie retorted, jokingly: “I no longer collect a paycheck; I must have a sex life!”

As for Elvis’ inclusion, Annabelle told the Inquirer that he was easy to convince: “He had one scene in the first season and he liked it. He’s not one to share his secrets but I said he’ll get used to it.”

Annabelle revealed that her seldom-seen tender side is felt by her grandchildren, as she helps out with them whenever she can: “I have to spend time with all my grandchildren. Sometimes, I cook for Zion, or bring him to the doctor for check-ups. I like doing all that.”

“’Pag nagbibigay ka ng instructions dun sa dalawa, nakikinig, ‘pag hindi nila makuha, magtatanong, ’pag pinakita ko kung ano ’yung gusto ko, gagawin nila,” Alajar shares.

* She also cites her own discoveries namely Chlaui Malayao, Zymic Jaranilla, Judie Dela Cruz, Jemwell Ventinilla and Steph Yabut, describing them quite astute for their age.

Alajar says, “Parang professional (ang mga bata). Ang maganda kasi they have a workshop language so less stress sa akin ‘yan.”

She adds, “I expect much from them pero may leeway kasi alam kong baguhan.”

Actors should heed of their director’s instructions, maintains Alajar.

“There are actors kasi, ‘Artista ako, alam ko yan.’ Na-o-offend sila kapag tinuturuan mo, nao-offend kapag pinapakita mo kung ano ‘yung kailangan. Maybe they know better or they think na alam naman nila ‘yung ginagawa nila. May ilusyon siguro,” she says.

As much as possible, the 55-year-old tries not to stress over such matters anymore.

“Mas iniisip ko baka atakehin ako. It’s not worth it so mas steady ako ngayon compared to before nu’ng bago-bago pa lang (ako bilang direktor) when I would be frustrated kapag hind ko nakuha ‘yung gusto ko,” she says.

Asked for any advice relating to acting and directing, Alajar recalls something she says she learned from cinema legend Lino Brocka.

“I remember him saying, ‘When you don’t know what to do, go back to the basic. Just go back to the basic. Don’t complicate matters,” she relates.

RADIO NOTES: The young male voice singing, rock ‘n’ roll style, the JRS Express radio jingle sounds like rock goddess Sampaguita.

Dolphenal’s Dysmenorrhea jingle, performed by a woman singer, is quite catchy, almost like a serenade, if not a lullaby. Makes you feel it’s nice to have dysmenorrhea any old time.

Stress Drilon, rhymes with broadcaster Ces Drilon, is the name of the female character in a running radio commercial for Kremil S.

Generation, an emerging rock band, is composed of children of famous Filipino singers. Its members include Joe Chan, bass, and Mike Chan, keyboards and vocals, sons of Jose Mari Chan; Kowboy Santos (Sampaguita) and Ige Gallardo, rhythm guitar and vocals (Celeste Legaspi).

HUMOR IN ANONYMITY: During a recent trip to Guam, a Filipina sales clerk at the Duty Free shop on the island engaged MMDA Chair Francis Tolentino in conversation.

While the chair was glossing over some items, the young lady asked him the usual questions. Was he a tourist coming to Guam for the first time? What did he do for a living?

The chairman answered good naturedly, “I’m a rescuer.”

The lady replied, “Ay, you’re a soldier pala.”

Two days earlier, at the NAIA Terminal 2, Atty. Francis bought a bottle of virgin coconut oil. He is a fan of VCO, drinking it first thing in the morning.

Later realizing that he couldn’t possibly bring in the bottle with liquid into the aircraft, he asked if he could be allowed to return the unit.

The lady, clueless about the man in front of her, told him: “Edi inumin niyo na lang ho lahat ’yan.”
