JESSY MENDIOLA HAS NOTHIG TO DO WITH LUIS-ANGEL BREAK-UP


JULY 19 -Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola are becoming ‘closer and closer to each other,’ much to the discomfort of Luis’ ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin (left) “Even my family knows the reason why we broke up and Jessy was never in it.”  With that one sentence, delivered direct to the point, Luis Manzano has set the record straight about his break-up with Angel Locsin. Asked to elaborate, Luis begged off. Angel was quoted as saying, “Kung anong sinabi niya. Lagi namang ganoon eh. Kung anong sinabi niya, eh, di ‘yun na ‘yun. Kayo? Ano sa tingin n‘yo?”  That’s what Angel said when movie writers asked for her reaction to Luis’ statement that his break-up with Angel did not involve a third party. Angel’s words were loaded, weren’t they? She seemed to insinuate that there was indeed a “third party” identified in unverified/unconfirmed reports as Jessy Mendiola. “How can that be when Luis and Angel broke up last January pa?” said somebody close to Luis in his defense. “Jessy came into the picture only lately. Ayaw kong isipin na ginagamit ni Angel si Luis sa promo ng kanyang (Angel’s) coming movie, (Star Cinema’s) Third Party.”  It was Luis and Angel’s second break-up; the first was a few years ago. Luis was then linked to Jennylyn Mercado and Angel to Azkal Phil Younghusband. When they split up with their new short-lived loves, Luis and Angel got back together again. READ MORE...

That “breaking news” in last Tuesday’s Funfare about Ruffa Gutierrez having “died for five minutes” sent shock waves around the world (thanks to social media). It was Ruffa’s mom Annabelle Rama herself who, her body rocked by giant sobs, broke the sad news during the presscon for the return of the family show It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez (ITGTBAG) for its fourth season (still on E! Channel). Annabelle was promptly stopped by husband Eddie Gutierrez from talking further about Ruffa’s “death,” saying it was a mere slip of the tongue as he tried to console Annabelle, since their E! Channel contract forbids them from revealing about the family activities which are exclusively chronicled on the show. Good thing Ruffa’s brother Richard was around so he rushed Ruffa to the hospital. “I was swamped with frantic calls from here and abroad,” said Jun Lalin, the Gutierrezes’ publicist. “They were all asking if it was true that Ruffa had died.” According to the latest word (take note: not from the Gutierrezes), all tests turned out negative. Is Ruffa a victim of kulam (witchcraft, that’s why the family is reportedly thinking of consulting an espiritista)? Since it has happened to Ruffa thrice, there must be something wrong with her. Is the family seriously planning to seek a second opinion from doctors in Singapore? READ MORE...

Jessy has nothing to do with Luis-Angel break-up


Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola are becoming ‘closer and closer to each other,’ much to the discomfort of Luis’ ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin (left) “Even my family knows the reason why we broke up and Jessy was never in it.”

MANILA, JULY 18, 2016 (PHILSTAR) FUNFARE By Ricky Lo July 19, 2016 - With that one sentence, delivered direct to the point, Luis Manzano has set the record straight about his break-up with Angel Locsin.

Asked to elaborate, Luis begged off.

Angel was quoted as saying, “Kung anong sinabi niya. Lagi namang ganoon eh. Kung anong sinabi niya, eh, di ‘yun na ‘yun. Kayo? Ano sa tingin n‘yo?”

That’s what Angel said when movie writers asked for her reaction to Luis’ statement that his break-up with Angel did not involve a third party.

Angel’s words were loaded, weren’t they? She seemed to insinuate that there was indeed a “third party” identified in unverified/unconfirmed reports as Jessy Mendiola.

“How can that be when Luis and Angel broke up last January pa?” said somebody close to Luis in his defense. “Jessy came into the picture only lately. Ayaw kong isipin na ginagamit ni Angel si Luis sa promo ng kanyang (Angel’s) coming movie, (Star Cinema’s) Third Party.”

It was Luis and Angel’s second break-up; the first was a few years ago. Luis was then linked to Jennylyn Mercado and Angel to Azkal Phil Younghusband. When they split up with their new short-lived loves, Luis and Angel got back together again.

By the way, Luis must be the envy of other guys because all three girls linked to him have been honored by FHM magazine as Sexiest Women.

A few issues back, Funfare put out the “breaking news” that Luis and Jessy were “an item,” accompanied by a picture of them together inside a car posted on Jessy’s Instagram. As expected, Luis denied it…only for him and Jessy to admit that, yes, they have been dating since three weeks ago…”exclusively dating” (the new showbiz alibi, replacing “just friends”).

As I was saying, Jessy must be looking up to Luis as her “knight in shining armor” after he came to her rescue on that controversial plane ride to London when a young actor/Kapamilya colleague made a drunken pass at Jessy.

Did Jessy really say (half in jest, half in truth) in the recent presscon announcing her as FHM’s 2016 Sexiest Woman that Luis is a “husband material”? (I wonder how JM de Guzman, Jessy’s first serious boyfriend now in hibernation, feels about it.)


IAN VENERACION's camp denies that it's Jessy Mendiola who's the reported cause of the breakup of his marriage to his wife, Pam Gallardo, who's an engineer.COURTESY OF SHOWBIZ-PORTAL ONLINE (Appended by PHNO to the page)

Jessy is a hot item these days. She is also rumored to be the cause of the marriage of Ian Veneracion and his wife Pam Gallardo, a wild yarn that spread two days before news about Jessy’s FHM victory was confirmed.

“Isn’t the timing suspicious?” a Funfare source close to Ian and Pam said. “Whoever or whatever group concocted that story is out of its mind, baliw! Obviously, may galit kay Jessy ang gumawa n’un.”

When Luis heard that rumor, he said, “Not true,” hinting that Jessy is not the type who would wreck a marriage.

Meanwhile, Angel is still trying hard (as she herself admitted to the media) to move on. Food for thought (from someone who has been there, done that): To forget somebody special, find somebody more special.

(Note: Angel Locsin didn’t return calls for her side of the story. Space is reserved for her anytime she’s ready.)

Why Annabelle cried at yesterday’s presscon

The movie press has gotten used to Annabelle Rama’s “fighting” stance during a presscon, especially when she’s talking about her extended feud with daughter Ruffa Gutierrez who is in love with a foreigner not to Annabelle’s liking.

But at yesterday’s presscon at Marco Polo Hotel for Season 4 of the family show It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez (ITGTBAG, on E! Channel), Annabelle surprised the media by breaking down (her body shaking with uncontrollable sobs) when she revealed that, hold your breath, “Ruffa died for five minutes,” saved by brother Richard who rushed her to a nearby hospital. It happened only a few days ago.

Annabelle was about to elaborate when husband Eddie Gutierrez, tapping Annabelle’s shoulder, stopped her lest Annabelle violate the contract.

“Nadulas lang si Annabelle. Everything will be revealed on the show (which returns on Monday, July 25),” said Eddie.

Asked if it’s true that she has given Ruffa a go-signal on her love life, Annabelle recovered herself and exclaimed, “It’s a lie!!!”

That’s all Funfare could reveal so far.

Showbiz trivia


Fray Heston today

•From my friend Robin Tong (a bookworm like me):

Did you know that in The Ten Commandments the Baby Moses in the basket was portrayed by Fraser “Fray” Clark Heston, the newborn son of Charlton Heston who played Moses, as decreed by the producer, Cecil B. DeMille?

During the shoot, child welfare was observed so the baby, three months old at the time, could work under the klieg lights for only one hour any given day, with no “take” longer than 45 seconds.

Fray temporarily “retired” after The Ten Commandments and his salary went to the purchase of Paramount stocks “and has multiplied like the children of Israel.” Years later, he would become a film director, producer and screenwriter.

Secret of Heston’s success? His permanently broken nose! While playing football in high school, he landed nose first on someone’s knee. People have noticed the uncanny resemblance of Heston’s to Michelangelo’s Moses sculpture particularly the nose which was startling. It must have stuck in DeMille’s mind.

That “breaking news” in last Tuesday’s Funfare about Ruffa Gutierrez having “died for five minutes” sent shock waves around the world (thanks to social media). It was Ruffa’s mom Annabelle Rama herself who, her body rocked by giant sobs, broke the sad news during the presscon for the return of the family show It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez (ITGTBAG) for its fourth season (still on E!

Annabelle was promptly stopped by husband Eddie Gutierrez from talking further about Ruffa’s “death,” saying it was a mere slip of the tongue as he tried to console Annabelle, since their E!

Good thing Ruffa’s brother Richard was around so he rushed Ruffa to the hospital.

“I was swamped with frantic calls from here and abroad,” said Jun Lalin, the Gutierrezes’ publicist. “They were all asking if it was true that Ruffa had died.”

According to the latest word (take note: not from the Gutierrezes), all tests turned out negative. Is Ruffa a victim of kulam (witchcraft, that’s why the family is reportedly thinking of consulting an espiritista)? Since it has happened to Ruffa thrice, there must be something wrong with her. Is the family seriously planning to seek a second opinion from doctors in Singapore?

But at the other day’s presscon in Marco Polo Hotel (Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City), Ruffa looked none the worse, all smiles as usual, reacting good-naturedly to her mom’s rare public display of breaking down, especially when Annabelle said “Mahirap ang mawalan ng anak,” by saying, “I’m so happy that you really care for me naman pala.” You see, mother and daughter are in a love-hate relationship caused by Annabelle’s disapproval of Ruffa’s foreigner-boyfriend.

“I will have to be softer on her,” Annabelle told Funfare. “Ayaw ko na siyang lalong ma-stress pa.”

Still directed by Steven Gilfeather (of Scottish descent who works for NBC Universal in London), ITGTBAG (which returns on Monday, July 25 at 8:30 p.m., anchoring E! Asia’s I Heart Pinoy Monday Block) shows how the Gutierrezes have been since three years ago when the show started (with more than 70 episodes to date).

Here’s how:

• Richard and girlfriend Sarah Lahbati’s son Zion, introduced on the show when he was barely a year old, has grown up. “He’s very talkative now,” said Sarah, “and he’s showing signs of being an action star like his dad. Mahilig tumalon-talon sa bed. He’s also fond of singing and sports.”

• Ruffa’s daughters Lorin, 12, and Venice, 11, are like any typical tweens who are techie and fashion-conscious. Both plan to take up Business and Entrepreneurship but don’t discount going into showbiz — “But only after they are done with their studies,” said Ruffa.

• Eddie on Ruffa and his granddaughters: “When Ruffa was a kid, she was always in front of the mirror mimicking her favorite comedienne. Sina Lorin at Venice naman, they are always in front of the camera acting and singing.”

• Because Annabelle and director Steven Gilfeather are meeting all the time, according to Richard, “Nag-improve ang English ni Mommy at nag-improve ang Tagalog ni Steven.”


Ruffa with Lorin and Venice: The family’s showbiz heiresses

The resumption of ITGTBAG was delayed because the members of their family were busy with their respective activities. It was only now that they were able to arrange their schedules.

Incidentally, Funfare asked Ruffa how she felt about the airport bombing in Turkey that killed 36 and the coup attempt that left more than 160 casualties.

“I was concerned with what’s happening in Turkey,” admitted Ruffa who lived in Istanbul for a few years with her ex-husband Yilmaz Bektas. “Part of my daughters Lorin and Venice are Turkish. I reached out to the Bektas family and I was relieved that they were okay and nothing happened to them.

“You know, with what’s happening not only in Turkey but other parts of the world, we should really love one another, we should realize that life is short, so we must live life the best way we can.”

MANILA, Philippines – Jessy Mendiola vehemently denied that she caused the breakup of Angel Locsin and Luis Manzano.

Jessy is being courted by Luis after his breakup with Angel, which according to reports happened January this year.

“I would never, ever destroy a relationship,” she said in an interview aired in “Tonight with Boy Abunda” on Monday.

“If it were true, I wouldn't be here now facing you guys,” she added, addressing the press. “For me it was clear na they broke up already when Luis started courting me.”

She also pointed out that she wouldn’t do such since the same thing happened to her before.

"I wouldn't do that to any other girl,” she said. “Malinis ang puso ko.”

The Kapamilya actress said she doesn’t mind if Luis and Angel talk about their “issues.”

“Problema na nila 'yon, kung gusto nilang mag-usap about it or anything or clear anything with each other. I think that's their problem,” she explained.

“Pero 'wag nila ko isasali at 'wag niya akong isasali,” she added.

Meanwhile in the “Funfare” column of Ricky Lo in “The Philippine Star,” Luis supported Jessy’s denial and said, “Even my family knows the reason why we broke up and Jessy was never in it.”

On the other hand, Angel believes that Luis and Jessy are just looking for the “right timing” before they admit their relationship.

“Darating din ang panahon na aaminin naman nila na sila na, gano'n. May proseso kasi 'yan, di ba? Siguro binabalanse lang nila kung paano nila aaminin, di ba?” she said.

Angel then added, “Pero buhay nila 'yan, iba na ako. Tinanggal naman nila ako sa eksena, so okay na 'yon.” - Joyce Jimenez

Rival primetime shows claim ratings leadership nationwide posted July 21, 2016 at 06:20 pm by Isah V. Red


Solenn Heussaff as Cassiopea in the requel of “Encantadia”

With the launch of Encantadia remake on GMA Network, the battle for primetime ratings supremacy has intensified beginning Monday.

While the Kapuso network is celebrating the ratings lead of Encantadia nationwide (as affirmed by both NUTAM and Kantar media) during its pilot airing last Monday, the Kapamilya network claimed that FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano remains the top favorite of Filipinos on primetime TV.

Encantadia scores high on its pilot episode

Last Monday, Filipinos witnessed the return of the popular and well-loved telefantasya Encantadia on GMA Telebabad. The remake, which the networks calls the requel, looked grander than its original edition in terms of visual effects, costumes, and cast.

The pilot episode showed the history of Encantadia and how the four gems – fire, wind, water, earth – came to being. Also, the network’s royal and real couple – Kapuso Primetime King and Queen Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera-Dantes – was the main attraction since the two play Prinsipe Raquim and Ynang Reyna Minea.

The pilot also featured appearances by John Arcilla as Hagorn, Rocco Nacino as Aquil, Sunshine Dizon as Adhara, Rochelle Pangilinan as Agane, Vaness del Moral as Gurna, Carlo Gonzalez as Muros, Max Collins as Amihan and Solenn Heussaff as Cassiopea.


Carlo Gonzales as Muros

According to data from ratings service provider Nielsen TV Audience Measurement, the much-awaited requel scored a rating of 26.1 percent in Urban Luzon beating its ABS-CBN counterpart, FPJ’sAng Probinsyano with its 24.2 percent rating.


John Arcilla as Hagorn

Ratings aside, the pilot episode also trended in social media nationwide and worldwide.

Coco keeps throne as king of primetime

Coco Martin continues to live up to his title as the Primetime King with Kapamilya primetime teleserye FPJ’s Ang Probisyano maintaining its spot as the most watched series in the country last Monday.

Audiences nationwide tuned in to the heart-pounding episode in which hitman Hector (Cesar Montano) shoots Cardo’s (Coco Martin) grandfather Delfin (Jaime Fabregas) during his surprise birthday celebration. It recorded a national TV rating of 42.4 percent, beating rival program Encantadia that posted a mere 21 percent.


Coco Martin

The online world was also shaken with the nerve-wrecking episode as the official hashtag #FPJAPUltimatum trended on microblogging site Twitter. Moreover, netizens were all praises for the cast’s stellar performances and the teleserye’s cinematic scenes.

Since the top-rating series started airing on television, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano has shed light on the real-life experiences of Filipinos and has shown the importance of family and love for the country. Viewers are also drawn to the program’s story that highlights family values and issues that affects ordinary Filipinos.

So, who really won the audience?

The ratings survey, either by NUTAM or Kantar Media, simply pre-supposes that the survey samples represent the totality of the viewing public. The inference on the results may be valid since no survey company can actually monitor the viewing pattern of every household in the country.

In fact, surveys and the rating percentages are tools of advertising agencies in determining how much money an account/brand would allocate to a certain program. In my time at an advertising agency, we determine other factors like demographics (how many women or men and how old, what classes do they belong to) in making advertising expenditures to a client.

But TV networks these days use the survey results and ratings figure to further their claim as to which of them is actually the leader in local broadcasting.

In the end, the surveys are only hypothetical. The audience is still the best judge. But so far, no research company can actually do a most comprehensive survey to determine which program is at the top. And both networks know it is very expensive to do.

Meanwhile, the network rivalry goes on even as both leading broadcast companies subscribe to two rival survey companies as well.
