Willie Revillame: Back with a vengeance…soon? – Photo by VER PAULINO If ever that happened, it would totally change TV programming and bring back the good old days when our early evenings were ushered in by the variety show Oras ng Ligaya (with the late Oscar Obligacion as host). It would be a welcome respite from the avalanche of Koreanovelas that have been bombarding us without let-up, and a perfect foil to the often depressing stories that fill up newscasts. Like Joey and Mike, I hope that the GMA management would consider the idea seriously. Gone from television for more than a year, Willie is sorely missed by fans and the masa who have been looking forward to again competing in the game shows and just going home with a jacket and pocket money given away as pakimkim by Willie. As The STAR reported several issues back, a secret negotiation has been going on between GMA and Willie (who has been mum about it) and the only thing being discussed was the timeslot.

Vilma in 2016: Goodbye, politics?


Regal Matriarch Mother Lily Monteverde presents Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos a cake during yesterday’s post-birthday lunch-presscon, while (from left) Taal, Batangas, Mayor Mike Montenegro, Batangas Vice Gov. Mark Leviste and German ‘Kuya Germs’ Moreno look on

MANILA, DECEMBER 1, 2014 (PHILSTAR) FUNFARE By Ricky Lo - When Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos faced movie writers at a post-birthday lunch-presscon yesterday at Regal Matriarch Mother Lily Monteverde’s events place on Valencia St., Quezon City, she was back to her old bubbly self — that is, with her acidity stabilized, other symptoms (mostly psychosomatic triggered by her prolonged grieving over the sudden death of Aida Fandialan, her accountant/Girl Friday) gone and minus what she called “my Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer look” caused by a scratched pimple that sidelined her for weeks, insulated at home.

Hosted by Mother Lily and her daughter Roselle Monteverde, the affair also served as launch for Batangas’ annual Ala-Eh Festival (part of the province’s 433rd founding anniversary) from Dec. 1 to 8, of which Mother Lily is a staunch supporter, she being an adopted daughter of the province. The two ladies’ friendship goes a long way, extending beyond politics and showbiz. It was Mother Lily’s Regal Films that produced Relasyon, directed by Ishmael Bernal with Christopher de Leon as Vilma’s leading man, which won for Vilma Best Actress grand slam.

“We are like sisters,” said Mother Lily who put up an Imperial Resort Hotel in Taal and supports scholars in the province.

Said Vilma, “Mother Lily will always be a dear friend. I don’t have to remind her what she can do to help our province. She has been helping us without being asked to.”

In passing, Mother Lily told Funfare that although Vilma is on her last term as governor of Batangas, she should think twice before retiring from public service. “She’s a dedicated public servant,” Mother Lily described Vilma. “Nanay na Nanay talaga ng Batangas. I think she deserves a much higher position in the government at unang una na akong tutulong sa kanya!”

Before the presscon proper, Vilma told Funfare, “Honestly, I have no political plans after 2016,” not even if there’s a clamor for her to run again as Taal City Mayor, a position she has served in three terms.


‘I’m back in shape!’ exclaims Gov. Vilma – Photos by VER PAULINO

Vilma also cleared reports that she’s being lured to run for vice president, a position being dangled before Sen. Grace Poe who has so far remained undecided and uncommitted.

“There are no feelers,” denied Vilma, “at wala ring invitations. I’m not entertaining anything. Magulo ang pulitika ngayon.”

In fact, she said she has been cautioning her son Luis about being “lured” into running in 2016, reportedly for Lipa City Mayor.

“I’ve been telling Luis to think hard before entering politics,” added Vilma. “I told him, ‘Pag-isipan mo ng matagal at maigi because if you are not prepared, you won’t be effective.’ Luis naman is keeping my advice in mind.”

After 2016, if her plan were to push through, Vilma said she would concentrate on showbiz.

“I miss showbiz so much,” she confirmed.

Already, she’s meeting with Star Cinema guys to finalize a movie with Angel Locsin, her future daughter-in-law. Luis has begged off from the project because, according to Vilma, he didn’t want his romance with Angel to be dragged into the promo.

Asked when Luis and Angel were getting married, Vilma demurred.

“It’s up to Luis to decide,” Vilma said. “Pero sana sa Lipa City where Ralph (Sen. Recto) and I were married. Look, Ralph and I have been together for 28 years now,” vaguely hinting that should Luis and Angel got married (in the same cathedral), they were assured of a long life together.

What about having an apo from Luis?

“Ay,” Vilma exclaimed, “gustong-gusto ko na nga, eh! Sabik na sabik na ako.”

If ever, the apo should come only after Luis and Angel (if she’s already The One) got married.

Curtain-raisers:

• BREAKING NEWS: Derek Ramsay (photo) may babalikan. Anytime now, as soon as the whole thing is finalized, there will be a big announcement about Derek going back to something.

In the meantime, all Funfare could give are three guesses: 1). back to an old love, 2). back to an old “home,” and 3). back to an old show. Happy guessing!

• Isabelle Daza (photo) had her farewell appearance on Eat, Bulaga! (the show that made her what she is now) last Saturday, making Ryzza Mae Dizon cry and cry. Now a Kapamilya, Isabelle texted Funfare why she’s jumping ober da bakod: “It was a very difficult decision. I have been with them for three years and I’ve made great friends.

They really have become family to me and a lot of what I am today is because of them. But I guess I wanted to try something different and expand my horizons for new challenges.” Will ABS-CBN put Isabelle on Bulaga rival It’s Showtime? Ouch! That would be adding insult (salt!) to injury!

• Could it be true that the long-time hosts of a show ( I won’t say what kind) don’t see eye-to-eye? But since they are professional, they don’t show it on air, although if you are perceptive, you can spot it in their body language. Don’t they look at each other at the end of the “live” show? There’s your clue!

A new challenge for Ogie A.


OGIE, REGINE AND SON NATE

Giving back.

That’s what Ogie Alcasid is concentrating on at the moment, added to the many tasks on hand including exploring new directions in his career, heading the OPM (Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit), co-managing a Japanese restaurant (Ryu Ramen on Tomas Morato Avenue, Quezon City) with friends and now taking the helm of A-TEAM (Alcasid Talent Entertainment Artist Management). No, it doesn’t conflict with the agency of Leo Dominguez, Ogie’s manager (and co-member of La Salle’s Kundirana).

“A lot of struggling singers and songwriters would approach me to manage them. But I am not a manager,” disclosed Ogie who has been in the business for close to three decades.

The other members of A-TEAM are entrepreneurs Job Adriano, Rubby Lugtu and architect Anthony Nazareno, all of who have produced some local concerts. Completing the team are advertising whiz Monique Agatep-Ignacio, director/writer/talent manager Paolo Bustamante and athlete talent manager/events producer Cathy Nazareno.

“We have covered all the bases,” continues Ogie, “Job, Rubby and Anthony bring the expertise on how to successfully run a business. Monique brings in her advertising know-how to networking the talents, while Paolo and Cathy are the ones like me, who are presently active in the entertainment and sports business.”

As for their initial roster of talents, A-TEAM will begin by managing relative newbies in the industry who are in the field of singing and songwriting, which as we all know is Ogie’s forte.

“We are starting off with just a few talents, so there will be more focus on their need,” admitted Ogie.

During the presscon, Ogie and company presented four of its contract artists and their music videos — the QYork duo Cedric — with Budotz (for their new single); Davey Langit (Yeng Constantino’s batchmate on Philippine Dream Academy) with The Selfie Song; Lara Maigue with Sa’yo Na Lang Ako; and comedian Empoy whom Ogie jokingly described as “the new big comedian…in 40 years!”

It’s also the A-TEAM which is producing Ogie’s TBT (Total Balik Tugtugan) repeat concert on Saturday, Nov. 29, at Solaire Resorts which is co-producing it along with TV5. A repeat of the hit Music Museum show last August, TBT will again reminisce the fun and crazy parties of the ’80s through songs and his bagets days, with Ryan Cayabyab as musical director. With artists who grew up with Ogie during that era like Roderick Paulate, Janno Gibbs, Manilyn Reynes, Dingdong Avanzado and Jojo Alejar (with the Tigers), plus Ogie’s wife Regine Velasquez as special guest.

Isabelle Daza moves to ABS-CBN By Chuck Smith (philstar.com) | Updated November 24, 2014 - 3:53pm 6 730 googleplus0 0


Isabelle Daza signs an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN. Instagram/ABS-CBN PR

MANILA, Philippines – Isabelle Daza, the daughter of former beauty queen Gloria Diaz, is now a Kapamilya.

The 26-year-old model-actress signed an exclusive network contract with ABS-CBN on Monday. Present during the contract signing were Isabelle's talent manager, ABS-CBN broadcast head Cory Vidanes, ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio, among others.

She will be part of the upcoming ABS-CBN soap opera “Nathaniel” with Gerald Anderson and Shaina Magdayao.

This came just days after Isabelle announced she is leaving GMA-7's noontime variety show “Eat Bulaga,” where she served as a co-host since 2011.

“Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing 3 and a half years. It's been such a wonderful journey growing with Eat Bulaga and I will treasure this my whole life. You guys have welcomed me and made me feel part of your family,” Isabelle said on her Instagram account.

She added, “Thank you for the constructive criticism and putting up with my singing and dancing and always pushing me to do my best. This show has taught me so much. I'm so lucky to have gotten the chance to get to know you all. It brings me great sadness to say good bye, but you will always have a place in my heart.”

Isabelle previously worked under Star Cinema when she did “It Takes a Man and a Woman” in 2013.

Isabelle follows Jolina Magdangal, who recently signed an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN after being a GMA-7 artist for more than a decade.

Meanwhile, Iya Villania, a long-time artist of ABS-CBN, moved to GMA-7 last month.

Will Willie’s Wowowin be 24 Oras’ pre-programming? By Ricky Lo (The Philippine Star) | Updated November 24, 2014 - 12:00am 1 3 googleplus0 0


Joey de Leon and good friend Mike Enriquez: An idea that deserves a serious consideration?

MANILA, Philippines - In last Friday’s episode (and the following episodes after that) of Eat, Bulaga!, host Joey de Leon virtually endorses Willie Revillame as the perfect choice to take the 5:00-6:30 p.m. timeslot Monday through Friday before the GMA early-evening newscast 24 Oras. In fact, the newscast’s main anchor, Mike Enriquez, is said to be in favor of Joey’s ‘endorsement.’

Willie Revillame: Back with a vengeance…soon? – Photo by VER PAULINO

If ever that happened, it would totally change TV programming and bring back the good old days when our early evenings were ushered in by the variety show Oras ng Ligaya (with the late Oscar Obligacion as host).

It would be a welcome respite from the avalanche of Koreanovelas that have been bombarding us without let-up, and a perfect foil to the often depressing stories that fill up newscasts.

Like Joey and Mike, I hope that the GMA management would consider the idea seriously. Gone from television for more than a year, Willie is sorely missed by fans and the masa who have been looking forward to again competing in the game shows and just going home with a jacket and pocket money given away as pakimkim by Willie.

As The STAR reported several issues back, a secret negotiation has been going on between GMA and Willie (who has been mum about it) and the only thing being discussed was the timeslot.

If the 12 noon-2 p.m. slot, Willie’s show (titled Wowowin?) would run right smack against ABS-CBN’s ASAP. Hmmm, a neck-and-neck fight in the ratings game, wouldn’t it be?

Remember the noontime game show Showbiz With The Salvadors that lorded it over the ratings during the first few years of Martial Law?

All together now: Happy days are here again, are here again…

Ai Ai to settle in the US by Mikee Delizo November 24, 2014 Share this:


Ai Ai delas Alas with children Nicolo, Sofia and Sancho (Instagram)

Ai Ai delas Alas with children Nicolo, Sofia and Sancho (Instagram) After posting a photo of her immigration visa on Instagram recently, comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas has confirmed speculations that she’s indeed leaving for the US for good.

Appearing on “The Buzz” on Sunday, the 50-year-old mother of three said, “Oo, magma-migrate ako pero ’yung mga dates aayusin ko pa rin kasi marami na akong gagawin next year, kasi 25 years na ako sa business.”

As to what prompted the decision, she shared, “Kasi ‘yung dalawa kong anak doon po nakatira so kailangan ko silang dalawin every time.”

Sofia and Nicolo migrated to the US in 2012 to study and start a career in the US Air Force, respectively. Ai Ai’s eldest, Sancho, is still staying with her in the country.

Ai Ai, who is now promoting her upcoming movie “Past Tense,” is planning a huge concert for 2015.

Okay with BF’s parents

Meanwhile, the controversial actress dismissed rumors that the parents of her 20-year-old boyfriend, Gerald Sibayan, are against their May-December affair.

“Okay naman sila (sa relasyon namin). Basta sila, sinasabi nila parati kay Gerald na ‘Malaki ka na, alam mo na ang tama at mali,’” she shared.

Ai Ai is happy with her love life, which she claims to have an effect even on her physical appearance.

“Sabi nila, Law of Osmosis (kaya hindi ako tumatanda),” she said, “Siyempre, ayoko namang i-brag – pero (ganun daw) kapag meron kang karelasyon na medyo mas bata sa ’yo. Huwag na tayong magpaka-plastic, hindi medyo, super bata.”

She added, “Napaka-thankful ko kay Lord na binigyan Niya ako ng ganoong chance na maging maganda pa rin at this age – kahit hindi magandang maganda, fresh na lang. ’Yung (may) inner peace…”

She feels blessed to have Gerald in her life. “Nag-pray ako kay Lord, ‘Sana bigyan Niyo naman po ako ng ganito, ganito, ganito. Nakalimutan ko ’yung edad,” she joked.

“Pero swak sa lahat, eh. ’Yung sana medyo ka-edad ko, pero okay naman din.”

Charlene Gonzalez-Muhlach: At 40, my husband still tells me I’m beautiful (The Philippine Star) | Updated November 26, 2014 - 12:00am 0 0 googleplus0 0


Growing up with Pond’s: “The brand has truly grown with me and helped me feel even more confident in my skin no matter what stage of life,” says Charlene Gonzalez-Muhlach, the face of Pond’s Firm and Lift.

MANILA, Philippines - “I think I’ll forever be known as the former beauty queen,” reveals Charlene Gonzalez.

Even though this Pond’s girl has added many impressive titles to her name — including actress, award-winning host, mom, and wife — she will always be remembered as the witty Binibining Pilipinas Universe contestant who wowed the world with her infamous “high tide or low tide” line. “I was the face of a country that is renowned for its beautiful women. It’s something that I’m truly proud of,” she says.

Because Charlene attained such a huge and successful milestone in her life at the age of 19, it caused her to worry. “When a great experience happens to you at a young age, you don’t want it to become the defining moment of your life — or worse, the peak when you still have so many years ahead of you,” she explains. “The questions on my mind were — What’s next? What more can I do?”

Instead of getting paralyzed by her fears, Charlene chose to move forward and beyond her Miss Universe moment. “I believed that the best was yet to come, so I prepared and improved myself for the best years ahead,” she said. She persisted to find new ways to succeed — whether it was through pursuing further studies in Harvard or even being the best wife and mother to her two beautiful children. Even until now, Charlene shows no signs of slowing down because of her drive for self-improvement.

It’s now been 20 years since she was the crowd favorite at the 1994 Miss Universe pageant, but this #PondsGirl continues to earn our respect with her genuine love for life and her desire to always become a better version of herself.

“At 40, I can look back and feel quite happy that my life and my beauty didn’t peak when I joined Miss Universe,” Charlene proudly says.

“I believed then that may igaganda pa ’ko and that I had the best years of my life ahead of me. And, that’s exactly how things turned out.”

Charlene’s Age-Defying Secret

“I’d like to believe that my beauty has also blossomed over time,” says Charlene. Just how did she manage to do this? It’s simple — by consistently taking care of herself. “I eat healthy, exercise, and more importantly, I take care of my skin.” A new constant in Charlene’s beauty arsenal is New Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift. “I love the tightening effect it has on my skin, most especially my neck and jawline, called the Y-Contour,” says Charlene. “Some people think that you only have to worry about wrinkles, but the more advanced sign of aging as you approach 40 is loose skin and sagging. New Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift strengthens skin from inside, so you can look up to 10 years younger with a firmer, lifted Y-Contour.”

Y: The New Shape Of Youth

The Pond’s Institute acknowledges that the lower half of the face — the neck, the jawline — also known as the Y-Contour, can reveal one’s true age. This delicate part is prone to loose skin and sagging. It is important to preserve the Y-shape, like it’s your fountain of youth. For a firmer, lifted Y-Contour, you need a product that specifically offers targeted firming and lifting action to strengthen your skin.

“I love how Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift gives you the power to shape your youth in your own hands,” says Charlene. New Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift is composed of a three-product skincare regimen.

First, there is Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift Targeted Lifting Serum Massager, a fast-acting treatment that contains the highest level of hydrolysed Collagen and Lipodipeptide in the range. Infused with powerful InstantLift, it comes with a cooling, roll on massage applicator to help precisely target and lift the jaw and neckline.

Second, Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift Eye Contour Lifter, a silky cream that is packed in a handy tube that has a unique cooling applicator head, designed for the eye contours for easy product application under the eyes. The Eye Lifter is infused with effective InstantLift to regain firmness and lift the skin of the under eye area.

And third, Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift Face & Neck Lifting Day Cream with SPF 30 PA+++, a luxurious, highly concentrated lifting cream infused with potent InstantLift that visibly firms and lifts skin while providing superior sun protection. The cream has a double lifting effect that corrects deep lines and wrinkles and lifts sagging skin.

“Even if I’m 40, I still always get compliments from my husband. He tells me that I’m beautiful, and my beauty grows over time,” reveals Charlene. “I have Pond’s to thank for that, since I began using it even as a teenager. The brand has truly grown with me and helped me feel even more confident in my skin no matter what stage of life or age. I feel more beautiful now than I did when I joined Miss Universe in my teens. May igaganda pa pala ‘ko.”

Aiza-Liza set wedding date by Pau Aguilera November 25, 2014 Share this:


Liza and Aiza (Instagram) Liza and Aiza (Instagram)

Aiza Seguerra has revealed the date of her US wedding with fiancée Liza Diño via Instagram, Monday, posting their photo bearing the text: “Liza & Aiza, 8th December 2014.”

She also disclosed that their reportedly rustic-themed wedding would be held “somewhere in California.”

“…Malapit na. Ilang tulog nalang. Kinakabahan ako. Excited ako. Malapit na. Konting panahon nalang. Matatawag na kitang asawa. Malapit na. Ang habangbuhay na kasama ka. Sa lungkot at saya. Sa hirap at ginhawa. Malapit na,” its caption read.

Liza shared the same photo in her own Instagram account, beginning the long caption with the phrase “Random Musings From a Bride-to-be.”

She then wrote about her pre-wedding anxieties, from finalizing the RSVP list and fitting into her gown, to the “little details” that include finalizing the lights and picking cupcake flavors.

She also worried about looking “ugly” when sobbing, and told herself to “practice crying ‘beautifully’ in front of the mirror.”

Recall that in a previous interview, Liza mentioned plans of a Philippine beach wedding next year. In the same post, however, when her thoughts turned to a possible Manila wedding, she joked, “Whoever plans to have two weddings consecutively is plain crazy.”

At the end of her post, a much calmer Liza said, “This is gonna be the best wedding ever. Counting the days to forever. ohhhh, I can’t wait. I love you @cyseguerra, my groom, my husband-to-be. I love you Amara (her daughter). I love you Porky. Yes, This is it for me! My family… my life!”
