Cristalle Henares admitted it would be very hard for her to measure up to her mom, Vicki Belo, with all of her achievements as a celebrity doctor under her belt. In an interview with ANC’s “Headstart” on Thursday, Henares said the idea of filling her mother’s shoes one day has always been an issue for her. She said, however, that she has learned to become confident through time, believing that God has blessed her with other strengths. “Definitely. It’s always been an issue for me especially because I’m not a doctor. Will I measure up? But I know that God has given me other unique abilities,” she said. Henares was the one who launched Belo Essentials, which is a totally different business from the Belo Medical Group handled by her mom, Vicki.

It used to be that you stay with whatever religion you are born into. Not anymore.
Today, it is common to see people converting to beliefs and disciplines vastly different from what they followed growing up. Hollywood has always had its trendsetters. With their global popularity, even a personal thing like converting to a new religion becomes newsworthy item. Possibly without meaning to, they inadvertently become the public face of different faiths and religions. Here are a few: Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone, simply known to fans as Madonna, was raised a Catholic. In 1996, she started practicing Kabbalah. Kabbalah, which means “receiving” or “tradition” in Hebrew, is a discipline and school of thought which originated in Judaism. Followers are supposed to seek and define the nature and purpose of the universe, human existence and several other ontological queries, using the Jewish Kabbalistic text called Zohar to attain spiritual realization. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the 57-year-old singer-songwriter explained she started practicing Kabbalah simply to “try and become a better person.” “I wasn’t hurting anybody. Just going to class, taking notes in my spiral notebook, contemplating my future,” she added. Other famous Kabbalists include Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Britney Spears and, most recently, Harry Styles, who was seen wearing at a concert in 2014, a Kabbalah bracelet – a red string with a small charm. Orlando Bloom Born an Anglican, a Christian tradition tied to the Churches of England, this British actor who made a bow-and-arrow-wielding Elf famous converted into Buddhism in 2004 via a ceremony at the Soka Gakkai International Buddhist Center in London. Buddhism teaches its followers to look within for solutions to their problems. It provides a code of practice that apparently leads to true happiness. Buddhists believe karma, the spiritual principle of cause and effect; and nirvana, the ultimate state of enlightenment, peace and happiness. “The philosophy that I’ve embraced isn’t about sitting under a tree and studying my navel, it’s about studying what is going on in my daily life and using that as fuel to go and live a bigger life,” Orlando said in an interview with Details Magazine in 2007. The 38-year-old actor has built his own Buddhist retreat in Malibu California. Other famous Buddhists are Tiger Woods, Tina Turner, Richard Gere and Steven Seagal. Janet Jackson The youngest of the Jackson siblings converted to Islam when she married Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana in 2012. She was originally a Jehovah’s Witnesses, as was her entire family. Her brother Jermaine also converted to Islam in 1989 after a trip to Bahrain. In her ongoing “Unbreakable” world tour, Janet would often end performances by saying “Insha Allah,” meaning “If Allah wills.” Islam is a monotheistic (single God) and Abrahamic (tracing origin to Abraham) religion based on the teaching of the Quran, which contains the words of Allah through the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal, boxer Mike Tyson, and rappers T-Pain and Snoop Dogg are also Muslims.

Chiz at Heart walang pakialaman sa pulitika at showbiz! Ni Salve V. Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) | Updated September 2, 2015 - 12:00am 2 0 googleplus0 0

 

Chiz at Heart

MANILA, Philippines – Uy naispatan pala kamakailan ang mag-asawang Chiz Escudero at Heart Evangelista na ipinapas­yal ang kanilang kambal na anak sa isang mall sa Quezon City.

In fairness, kahit busy sa kani-kanilang mga career sa pulitika at showbiz, at least may panahon sina Chiz at Heart para makipag-bonding sa mga anak ng senador ‘pag weekends.

Ayon sa isang interview kay Chiz, nag-a-adjust pa rin siya sa schedule ng misis lalo na at busy ito ngayon sa taping ng teleserye nitong Beautiful Strangers.

“Ibang-iba ang buhay ng mga artista. Sikat, malaki ‘yung bayad, pero ‘yung buhay mahirap din. Monday, Wednesday and Friday ang taping niya para sa teleserye. Aalis siya ng bahay ng mga ala-5:30 ng umaga, matatapos ‘yung taping niya ng ala-una ng umaga ng susunod na araw,” sabi ng senador sa nasabing interview.

Eh bukod sa Beautiful Strangers, may mga ibang raket pa si Heart – modeling at may hobby pa na pagpipinta.

Buti na lang at hanggang next week na lang ang Startalk, though kasama naman daw si Heart sa papalit sa programa with AiAi delas Alas.

Paglilinaw ni Chiz, hindi nila pinanghihimasukan ni Heart ang kani-kanilang career sa pulitika at showbiz.

Ni hindi nga raw nababanggit ang pulitika at showbiz kung sila ay mag-uusap ng kanyang maybahay, ayon kay Chiz.

Kaya naman pala laging sinasabi ni Heart na wala siyang alam kung ano ba talagang posisyon ang kakandidatuhan ng kanyang mister sa 2016. At wala rin naman masabi ang senador sa halikan ni Heart at Rocco Nacino sa Beautiful Strangers.

Beauty mogul’s daughter never stops learning By: Isabel Roces @inquirerdotnet Philippine Daily Inquirer 08:00 AM September 18th, 2015
 

CRISTALLE BELO HENARES (LEFT) OF BELO ESSENTIALS SAYS SHE’S OBSESSED WITH THE NATURAL, NO-MAKEUP LOOK

She may have grown up as the daughter of a beauty mogul and a radio station owner, but Cristalle Belo Henares is not content to sit in her parents’ shadow. The beauty entrepreneur in-the-making is slowly developing her own unique style vision and voice.

Cristalle is the sum of the best parts of her dad, NU 107 founder Atom Henares, and mom, cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo. She got her mom’s entrepreneurial spirit and her dad’s charisma.

“I’m more of a collaborative person,” she says. “My way of motivating my team is by giving them a voice. It’s definitely not a one way street when it comes to my management style. I say, put it out there and we will filter it together.”


Belo Essentials Whitening Face Wash

As managing director for Belo Essentials, the consumer arm of Belo Medical Group, Cristalle is in her element.

Behind the scenes, she is a compassionate employer, smart strategist and genuine friend. Her pursuit of excellence has made her step out of the shadow of her famous parents, becoming a great asset to the Belo subsidiary.

Backstage Pass speaks to the 32-year-old to find out her next big moves.


Cristalle Belo Henares

Standout strategy

My mantra or philosophy at work… is to have fun! Keep doing it if your heart is in it. If not, it will be mechanical and the product will lose its soul.

When it comes to personal goals, on the horizon for 2016 is… to graduate from my Entrepreneurial Master’s Program in MIT [Massachusetts Institute of Technology].

If there is one valuable lesson I’ve learned working for my mom, it’s… never stop learning. There’s always something innovative, a different perspective, or something new to explore.

My father has influenced my line of work by… encouraging me to take up Management. (I had originally wanted to be a teacher or an interior designer.) Learning the different aspects of business management made me well-equipped to face the world in general.

The best compliment my mom ever gave me was… that Belo Essentials and her dream of giving Filipinos high-quality but affordable skin care products would not be possible without me.

The last completely awesome thing I did was… dive in the open sea of the Bahamas with tiger sharks.

The stupidest thing I did for love… is get into a long distance relationship. But hey, it’s the best one I’ve ever had!

I’m on a constant search for… something that can help the less fortunate in our country. My friends and I already started creating a solution by putting up a chain of schools called MovEd, providing pre-school education to underserved communities in Bicol, Navotas and Pasig.

Glow boosters

My most recent fashion purchase is… my YAY designs wrap, which is a big shawl with snaps. I can style myself 12 different ways by snapping away. (Available in Rustan’s)

Products that are a staple in my bathroom are…

Belo Essentials Pore Minimizing Face Wash: It’s in gel form so it’s gentle on the skin. My skin is oily, so this helps decrease the oiliness. (Available in supermarkets and drugstores)

ZO Cebatrol Oil Control Pads: I apply this after washing my face to remove oil and dirt from pores and take away dead skin. (Available in Belo Medical Group)

ZO Offects Exfoliating Polish: I use this twice a week. It contains ultra-fine magnesium crystals that mechanically exfoliate dead skin from the surface. It’s like a Powerpeel at home. (Available at Belo Medical Group)

Belo Sun Expert SPF40: Sunblock a day keeps the wrinkles away. I use it every day because it’s the best antiaging product!

Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink: Not really found in the bathroom but it’s a powder I mix with my coffee every day to make my skin firmer, nails stronger and hair thicker.

I have an obsession with… looking like I’m using as little makeup as possible. I use brands like Guerlain, Nars, Shisheido and Happy Skin.

I enjoy the scents of… Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. I was actually named after Chanel Cristalle because it was my mom’s favorite scent when I was born. I also like Bulgari Omnia Indian Garnet. Justin (my boyfriend) bought it for me because it had orange packaging and orange is my favorite color. Now I’m absolutely in love with the scent.

Best in shade

Try Cristalle’s minimal makeup look, using one of her trusted brands, Shiseido, which recently launched Maquillage Dramatic Mood Veil (P2,200)—a powdery yet creamy blush that blends easily for a natural, rosy glow. With an array of five colors and five textures in a single block, you can easily use it to add a little color to your cheeks and face. It gives a natural rosy complexion and elegant luster from within to the cheeks.

For lips, Shiseido launched the Dramatic Melting Rouge (P1,150)—a beauty oil-based rouge in pastels that give you rich and moist ladylike lips. (Available in Shiseido boutiques and counters nationwide)

Founded by American science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard in 1995, Scientology is a religious system that seeks self-knowledge and spiritual fulfillment through a course of studying and training.

Struggling with dyslexia at an early age, Tom maintained the religion has helped him overcome the learning disability.

Though one of the most outspoken supporters of Scientology, the “Mission Impossible” star is allegedly quitting the religion, supposedly because he has been missing out on daughter Suri’s birthdays and school events.

According to a report on Mirror, the 54-year-old actor felt like he has been under a lot of pressure from the church since they don’t like their members to raise their kids outside Scientology.

Other known Scientologists are John Travolta, Juliette Lewis and Elisabeth Moss.

Julia Roberts In an interview with Elle magazine in 2011, Julia Roberts admitted to practicing Hinduism.

Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world. It believes in the reincarnation of souls, passing through several births and deaths until meeting perfection and the Divine.

The 47-year-old actress hopes to be reincarnated in a peaceful life after her stint as a celebrity.

“I’ve been so spoiled with my friends and my family in this life. Next life, I want to be just something quiet,” she said.

A photo of Neem Karoli Baba, a Hindu guru, drew the actress to Hinduism. She eventually converted while filming “Eat, Pray, Love” in 2010.

Julia was originally a Christian.

MANILA, Philippines - "Tamang Panahon" has finally arrived.

After almost three months of split screen meeting and short dates, Alden Richard and Yaya Dub finally faced their fans on the big stage at the "Tamang Panahon" show of GMA-7's noontime variety program "Eat Bulaga" at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan on Saturday.

The show, which featured the grand meeting of the AlDub love team from its popular "Kalyeserye" segment, aired for over three hours with no commercial break.

One hundred percent of the ticket sales for the show will go to the AlDub Library Project which will work on rehabilitating libraries of three elementary schools.

"Tamang Panahon" featured many of the "Kalyeserye" segment's characters, including Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola), Lola Tidora (Paolo Ballesteros) and Lola Tinidora (Jose Manalo).

"Kalyeserye" antagonists Duhrizz (played by Wally Bayola) and Frankie Arenolli (played by Jose Manalo) also made appearances during the show.

Midway through the show, Alden and Yaya Dub met on stage to the tune of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud."

"Maine, ang tagal kong hinintay 'tong chance na 'to, to say that God gave me you. Ang layo na rin narating natin. Dalawang taong naghahanap, and finally nagkita na rin. Salamat sa'yo," Alden told Maine before singing Bryan White's "God Gave Me You," the song that has become the theme song for AlDub love team. Maine even sang a few lines of the song with Alden.

"Alden, thank you. Alam mo pinagdasal ko talaga ang araw na ito. Ganun din naman yung gusto kong sabihin sa iyo, God gave me you," Maine told the GMA-7 actor after the song number.

She added: "Ang dami ng nagbago sa buhay natin, ang dami ng nangyari, pero may mga bagay pa din na hindi magbabago. Isa doon, ikaw at ako."

Lola Nidora told Alden and Maine Yaya Dub to get to know each other better.

"Gusto ko magkakilala muna kayong mabuti. Maging magkaibigan. Hindi ko naman hahawakan ang tibok ng puso ninyo. Ipangako ninyo sa akin na hindi ninyo sisirain ang tiwalang binigay sa inyo ng mga Lola," she said, adding Alden is now welcome in her mansion.

The two also took the event as an opportunity to thank their fans.

"Maraming, maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat na nakidalo at nakisaya po sa amin ngayong araw," Maine said.

She added: "Hindi po ninyo alam kung gaano kalaking bagay sa amin na makita po kayo ditong sumusuporta at nagmamahal po sa amin. Nakakatuwa nga pong isipin na simula't simula po hanggang tamang panahon, andyan pa rin kayong lahat, hindi nawala."

Alden, meanwhile, said: "Gusto ko po sanang magpasalamat, of course, kay Lord. Kaming dalawa ni Maine, gusto naming magpasalamat sa Kanya kasi kung hindi dahil sa Kanya hindi namin kayo makukuha na suportahan kami."

"Sa lahat po ng nagmamahal sa amin ni Maine, kayo po ang may gawa kung bakit naging posible ito."

"Kaya para sa atin, tuloy ang forever," he said.

Alden and Yaya Dub also took a "selfie" with the crowd inside the Philippine Arena, which has a capacity of 55,000.

As of 2 p.m., the hashtag for the October 24 show #AlDubEBTamangPanahon has amassed over 20 million tweets.
