Aning-aning si Fermin para palabasing magkakutsaba kami ni Ms. Aiko!
Base from the way he was talking, it was obvious that he kind of believed Fermin’s cheap allusion that Ms. Aiko Melendez and I have purportedly connived to malign the two mayors of Bulacan.
Sa totoo, that was the most jolting accusation that I’ve had in years.
Of course I know Ms. Aiko in the sense that both of us are in show business. Who wouldn’t know her when she is one of the most consistently written personalities in the business today?
But to say that we are most intimate would be a flagrant lie!
A gross exaggeration.
In the many years that I’ve been in this business, I have yet to meet Ms. Aiko in person.
As a matter of fact, it was only when we both were accused of the two mayors of Bulacan that I was able to talk to her over the phone through the intercession of a mutual friend of ours.
Kaya ‘yung tsika ng tsakang si Fermin na magkabeso kami ni Ms. Aiko at may connivance kuno kami na siraan ang dalawang mayor ay talaga namang the farthest from the truth.
A flagrant hideous lie!
Mamatay na sa aming dalawa ang nagsisinungaling at nakasisiguro akong siya ‘yun dahil mahaba naman na talaga ang recording niya sa paglulubid ng mga kasinungalingan by virtue of her being a veritable AC/DC (attack and collect/defend and collect). Hahahahaha!
Kapal! Over sa kapaaaallllllll!
Ayaw ni Babes nang ganyan. Hahahaha! At lalong ayaw ni Gerry Oliva ng mga sinungaling.
Di ba naman, Amben? Da girlalung pinaasa ni Fermin na for life silang dalawa pero nang maging teevee host ay ginawa na lang alalay.
Ginawa na lang daw alalay, o! Hahahahaha! Ang cheap!
I’m wondering what the Pocketbelt gay, (Pocketbelt gay raw, o! Hahahaha!) na binigyan ng brass bed ni Fermin, has to say about her supposedly beyond reproach character when she is fond of hitting personalities in her pralalaic columns so that they would be forced to buy her ultra-expensive paintings.
Hahahahaha! Are you reading this Pokwang, RR Enriquez, Janelle Jamer, just to mention a few?
Just to mention a few raw, o! Ayaw ni Mommy Carol nang ganyan. Hahahahaha!
Kaya sulsulan mo man ang sanlibutan, Fermin, I couldn’t care less.
I’m not scared of you. Baka ikaw ang takot sa akin dahil……. ‘yun na!
Hahahahahaha! Ano nga pala ang nangyari sa demanda mo kay Chocoliet? Nag-prosper ba naman? Hahahahaha!
Ma at pa!
Anyway, may good side rin ang pananarak sa aming likuran ni Fermin.
Finally, after many years, Ms. Aiko and I are now kind of friends. Hahahahaha!
O, devah, Ferminatics? Hahaha!
The other night, Ms. Aiko texted us and she was so honest about her feelings, she was not aware that she almost made us cry.
Poor sentimental me. Hahaha!
“Honestly. Pete, kahit you were once writing nega things about me,” she intoned. “I never took it against you cause I know you just wanted me to lose weight. It’s funny how they are thinking that I paid you to ruin them. When in truth, I haven’t seen or talked to you for a very long time. “Now, isn’t that funny?” she asseverated.
“The truth is, I’ve always been scared na baka i-write mu uli ako as aparador. Ahahahahaha! This is so funny that how in the end our paths would cross and of all places, sa court pa tayo magkikita. Ahahaha! Cute, ‘noh?”
“BTW, I lost so much weight na, Pete,” she averred. “So that means, sa column mo, you won’t call me mataba anymore. Ahahaha! Konti na lang,” she emphatically stated, “I’m back na in my old form.”
But is she not seeing someone special right now?
“I swear, Pete,” she stressed emphatically, “wala talaga. Afraid na ako. Traumatic.” Ahahahaha!
“So, will I see you on June 8? Take care.”
‘Yun na, Ferminatic. At least, I found a new friend who is straightforward and very candid too with her thoughts just like me, and not, in any way, a back stabber like you. Hahahahahaha!
Ima Castro’s star continues to shine
WAY back during the early, mid and late 90’s, Ima Castro was definitely one of the gifted artists that we had in our country.
But she left the Philippines sometime in 2001 to look for a greener pasture in London.
“I was based in London for ten long years,” she ventures in a recent encounter in connection with the musical “Aida” by Atlantis Production. “I kind of would go back and forth in our country and in London because I had work to do there and I, too, have an agent back in London.
“Dream ko talagang gawin ang Ms. Saigon and it was a great experience and I’ve learned a lot from doing it,” she says in earnest.
Anyway, Sir Cameron Mackintosh was most impressed with her talent, she asked her to join the UK tour of the show for two years.
“I really had the chance to travel and live in beautiful places like Dublin, Lisbon, Belfast and other key cities in England.”
Whatever, the year 2004 was a most memorable one for Ms. Ima.
“Umuwi kasi ako at ikinasal for the second time with the same man,” she looks back with mixed emotions.
“I was a virgin, mind you, when I went to London and did Ms. Saigon in the year 2001,” she asseverates.
And how did she lose it (her virginity)?
“One drunken night with the man I got married to and divorced four years later,” she intimates. “He was my leading man in England and we became quite close.”
Anyway, she’ll be doing Aida, a timeless love story sometimes in June 24 up to July 10 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza in Makati.
It’s going to be directed by Chari Arespacochaga.
Welcome back, Ima. It’s so nice to have a veritable talent like you back in our country once again.
