Naiintindihan namin si Chito pero mas gusto namin ang pagiging prangka at totoong tao ni Tita Annabelle

KATAMIHAN sa working press ay kampi kay Chito Alcid sa eksenahan nila sa ngayon ni Madam Annabelle Rama.

Dahil dito, ini-expect nang nakararami na porke’t nasa entertainment tayo ay kay Chito tayo kakampi.

Such would be the case siguro kung hindi namin kilala (skin deep, that is!) ang feisty mom ni Ms. Ruffa Gutierrez na si Tita Annabelle Rama.

Honestly, I’ve known her way back during the late 80s when the whole family had made the sound decision of staying in the Philippines for good.

Dalaginding pa lang si Ruffa at ni sa hinagap ay ‘di pa pumapasok sa isipan nang nakararaming she would become a beauty queen someday, kilala na namin si Tita Annabelle.

Our relationship is not the usual setup wherein you would hang-out together or share some balmy afternoon over some scalding cup of tea or coffee and talk about anything under the sun.

From a distance, we became friends. Not the usual kind of friendship but something that’s lasting and built on trust and mutual respect.

Kung kay Ferminata Bungalyang Ngetpalites lang naman sa saksakan ng pagkataling-harap at karumal-dumal ang pag-uugali off-cam, kay Tita A na kami na mahadera raw at bungangera sa pananaw nang nakararami pero sa totoo, she’s one person that we have come to admire for her honesty and sincerity.

Traits na hindi namin nakita kay Chito or kay plastikadang lola Fermi, ‘da cheap na plastikadang bungal at lomodic chaka!

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

Paumanhin lang, ha? I just would want to be most emphatic about my feelings and be honest as well.

Hindi nga siguro cool at lovable ang packaging ni Ms. Annabelle dahil nasanay na tayo sa mga Oro can na lomodic at bait-baitan kunwaring tulad ni Lola Fermi na nakasusulasok ang pag-uugali at pagiging back-stabber.

Hahahahahahahahaha!

Nuknukan na nga ng kapangitan, burak pa ang pag-uugali, burdado pa ang katawan. Hahahahahahahaha!

Ayokoooooooooooh! Hakhakhak!

In a way, I see in Tita Annabelle the admirable traits of my deceased mom Mrs. Caridad Garcia Ampoloquio.

My mom was fearlessly outspoken during her time when women were coy and sentimental and tragic (Hahahahahaha!) and was repeatedly accused of being uncouth and wanting of sophistication but she had fearlessly cottoned to the remarkable traits she was able to inherit from my maternal grandma.

During her lifetime, she would say whatever she had in mind without fear of being judged or censured by her detractors or the plastic people in general.

Suffice to say, I see in Tita A the image that I have always conjured up in my mind about my mom.

How refreshing to meet someone like her who speaks up her mind without fear of being judged.

At least with her around, you palpably know where you stand.

Black and white siya, unlike Ferminata chaka na gray ang favorite color dahil doble cara. Hahahahahahaha!

Ayoko nga ng panget na’y saksakan pa ng sama ang pag-uugali at nagkukunwa-kunwaring santa pero balahura’t back stabber pala.

Hahahahahahahahaha!

In my case, I’d rather prefer someone fabulously outspoken like Tita A, than to have someone like Bubonika who pretends to be sugar and spice and everything nice chuva but deep inside, a diabolical creature pala.

Cheeeaaaaappppp! Hahahahahahahahaha!

Sa tinagal-tagal ko sa larangang ito, I have managed to maintain my individuality and self-esteem and has never cowtowed to anyone the way Ferminata chakista would do most of the time if it would mean money on the side. Hahahahahahahahaha!

Lastly, Chito must have his own reasons and I respect that. But I just can’t turn my back on a beleaguered friend just because that is the in thing to do.

I am me. And I’m proud of what I have become through the years!

Papa Chen is the newest heartthrob!

NAKATUTUWA pero naiiba talaga ang narating ni Papa Chen (Richard Yap in person) who has metamorphosed into an icon at an age when most men are fast being relegated into the humdrum father roles or mere support of the lead actor.

Considering na experimental ang timeslot ng kanilang Be Careful With My Heart ni Ms. Jodi Sta. Maria, it’s been received with a big bang and was able to garner a whopping 17% on its debut episode and is now being avid -ly followed by the multitude.

Pa’no naman kasi, papable pa rin at hunky si Papa Chen at hindi nag-register sa kanyang extremely photogenic and telegenic countenance ang kanyang biological age. Hahahahahahaha!

Maalaga kasi sa kanyang katawan ang ating papa and he even looks a lot younger in person when his fine good looks is not being mangled by the cameras.

Pasok talaga ang tandem nila ni Jodi dahil may pagka-kikay ito na siya namang deni-demand ng kanyang role.

Napanonood nga pala ang Be Careful With My Heart bago mag-It’s Showtime, Monday thru Friday at ABS CBN.

Bibihira ang tulad ni Ate vi na suportado ang kanyang co-actors kahit na off-cam siya

GULAT na gulat si Ms. Janice de Belen dahil bago ang kanyan g breakdown scene sa The Healing, lumapit daw tatalaga si Governor Vilma Santos sa kanya at hinawakan ang kanyang kamay sabay sabing kayang-kaya niya ang eksena.

Sa panahon nga naman ngayon, bibihira ang artistang magiging concerned sa kanyang co-actors.

Kumbaga, paddle your own canoe ang drama ng mga tao ngayon sa industriya.

Pero sa set ng Star Cinema’s The Healing, ensemble acting ang namamayani.

Kahit si Pokwang ay super touched din sa ating Queenstar for all seasons dahil kahit na wala na raw sa POV (point of view) ng camera ang aktres, she still would deliver her lines in full support of Pokie kaya lalong naging mas effective at realistic lumabas ang eksena.

Kahit di na kailangan, body and soul pa rin daw ang emote ni Ate Vi at cry pa rin siya mereseng ‘di na rin naman kailangan dahil off-cam nga naman siya.

That’s how she good-naturedly operates.

Napaka-professional niya to the point na kahit na off-cam na siya at ang focus ng camera ay ang kanyang kaeksena, deliver pa rin siya ng kanyang dialogs para hindi matigil ang flow ng emotions.

Kaya ngayon palang, may ino-offer na naman daw na isang project kay Governor Vi ang Star Cinema.

Hahahahaha!  Sosyal talaga, di ba naman?

July 25 pa ang showing ng kanilang Star Cinema movie and yet her avid and rabid following are already waiting with bated breath on the sidelines.

Napakaswerte talaga ni Ate Vi dahil very much solid pa rin ang kanyang Vilmanians kahit na limang dekada na siya sa industriya.

No offense meant kay Mang Dolphy pero mahirap talagang mamatay kapag mahirap ka

LATELY, lalo kong nakita ang malaking pagkakaiba kung mahirap ka lang at kung may pangalan ka’t mayaman.

Hayan kasi at namayapa na sina Direk Anthony Taylor at Direk Maryo O’Hara pero wala kang nabalitaang may nag-abuloy sa kanilang pamilya ng mga milyones tulad ng dumarating sa pamilya ni Mang Dolphy na mayaman na nga, inuulan pa ng biyenes at grasya.

Ang nakahahabag talaga ay itong si Maryo O’Hara na sumikat din naman bilang direktor during Nora Aunor’s hey-day as an actress but he died practically as a penniless has been.

Nu’ng buhay pa ito at ‘di pa nagkakasakit, madalas namin itong makitang nakasakay ng jeep kasama pa ang amiga naming si Ian Valdez.

Hay buhay!

Si Direk Anthony naman, si Ms. Claire dela Fuente na lang ang natirang kaibigan in his twilight years.

At least si Ms. Claire, tunay niyang kaibigan up to the very end.

Kahit papano, she was always there for her friend na never niyang nakalimutang tulungan sa abot ng kanyang makakaya.

Nang atakehin nga raw ito ng kanyang hypertension na na-trigger off ng kanyang diabetes ailment, nasa bahay pa siya ni Ms. Claire who was then attending to the wake of her mom.

Hay, naku! nakalulungkot isiping kahit sa kamatayan, ang mga sikat at madadatung pa rin ang binibiyayaan.

How sad!

Paula Bianca, unti-unting humahataw ang singing career

MARAMING disappointments along the way, and sometimes Paula Bianca just couldn’t help but give in to her emotions but after that, she is back to her optimistic self once again.

Lately lang, na-embarrass siya nang husto sa isang music event kung saan nahirang siya bilang most promising new singer of the year pero nang dumating siya sa venue ay tapos na ito.

You could just imagine her discomfiture when she and her dad Papa Dhan were told that the awarding rites was finished some two hours ago.

Anyhow, Paula just won’t let abysmal occurrences such as this bog her down.

Naniniwala pa rin naman siya sa kasabihang at the end of the rainbow, lies a pot of gold!

Mismo!

Kasali nga pala siya sa concert na produced ni amigong Jobert Sucaldito intriguingly titled Bros & Bras that features Duncan Ramos, Jimmy Bondoc, and Luke Mijares that will be staged on July 21 at the Zirkoh, Morato.

Minsan pa, the public will be given a sampling of Paula’s awesome vocal expertise that’s of internationa caliber.

Dapat lang!

Maldito at may katarayan, regular lang naman!

HOW amusing naman ang reviews sa hunk actor na ‘to na ‘di naman kasikatan pero numero unong maldito at may attitude na maituturing. Hahahahahaha!

Sa isang okasyon, nilagpasan daw nito ang mga nakapila sa comfort room at ni-relieve ang kanyang anxiety (anxiety raw, o! Hahahahaha! I’m sure tilam-tilam ka naman Vavingving na duldulin! Hahahahaha!) without paying scant attention to the long line of people queuing it up at the comfort station.

Anyway, bigla tuloy nag-flash sa aming ala-ala ang amusing reaction ng supladong aktor nang ma-sight niya ang impressive crotch ng isang hunk actor who’s a lot older than he is, sa isa nilang photoshoot for a brief ad.

Hahahahahahahahahaha!

Biglang nagtebats raw ang character actor para magkaroon naman ng bulk ang kanyang harapan na ‘di impressive ang bukol. Hahahahahahahaha!

Ang sabi, dinadaan na lang daw sa angas ang pagiging regular. Hakhakhak!

‘Yun na!

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!
