People are talking about


Christian Bautista

There are only three local music artists whose record has sold more than 40,000 units (equivalent to double platinum) this year and he is one of them. His Jose Marie Chan tribute album enjoys warm reception from music enthusiasts like the albums of Richard Poon and Sarah Geronimo (hers is 3x platinum). Amid the record’s success here and abroad, Christian plans to explore other genres that he could incorporate in a follow up album. Not everyone became successful in testing a new formula but his brave intention will make him different from our singers who are generally cover artists. 

Ervic Vijandre


He may have lost the title Sole Survivor to a Brapanese mutt but the former cager is out to prove that he deserved the spotlight, too. Some people might think it’s awkward, but many of his fans would like him to be paired with ex-girlfriend Marian Rivera. The Kapuso primetime star is set to do an epic series and in need of a leading man. Several male talents from the Kapuso back lot already failed the audition, will Ervic be lucky this quest?
Anne Curtis


Positive vibe, class and sophistication – these are the reasons why in the coming months, giant billboards of SM Residences will soon see her face. Yes, Marian Rivera is out and Anne is in. Anne already signed an endorsement contract on Dec. 1. This happened eventhough Marian’s contract with SM Residences is still valid until Jan. 2011. According to the grapevine, SM Residences dropped Marian due to the negative publicity surrounding the Kapuso actress, apart from the questionable behavior and character Marian portrays publicly, which alarmed the bigwigs in SM property arm.

Kanto Boys


The gang of Vhong Navaro, Luis Manzano, Billy Crawford, and John Lloyd Cruz started out just a variety group on ASAP XV. Due to positive response from the public, the boyband wannabe begun appearing regularly on the Sunday musical and it was even invited in big concerts toshowcase its wacky performance. In the recent turn of events, the funny quartet will soon invade the big screen. The Kanto Boys has been cast in a movie, it’s very own movie.

Captain Barbell


Kapuso station is gearing up for an explosive pilot episode of the series topbilled by Richard Gutierrez. Apart from the new costume to be donned by Richard, and the six leading ladies to spice up the story, the series is set top make television history. The first episode of Captain Barbell’s latest version will use the latest technology available for television production and will be in 3D. If only most Kapuso aficionados’ television sets are in HD, they would greatly appreciate this advancement.

…are not talking about

Claudine Barretto

Did she? This is a short but an intriguing question that drags Claudine’s name. Rumor has it that the Kapuso star was rushed to Medical City due to ecstasy overdose. Tabloids have reported that a nurse from the hospital identified her as the one admitted due to mental disorder as well. We all know that she uses her Twitter account to defend herself in every issue thrown at her but interestingly, Claudine has been silent on the microblogging site for a month now. Poor Claudine! We hope these are all nasty rumors and no more.

Aga Muhlach



Most people you know would say that everything started out as rumors. We just have to wait for the confirmation of the people concerned. In the case of the 42-year-old actor, the gossip of him transferring to a different station has never died down. Almost every year, he is rumored to be cutting his ties with ABS-CBN in favor of GMA-7. This time TV5 bigwigs are dropping some intriguing hints on Aga’s transfer to their station. Why not make the move now Aga? Who knows TV5 might save your waning career. 

Sharon Cuneta

She is one of the principal sponsors in the star-studded nuptials of Regine and Ogie but she was a no-show. Reason being, she encountered problems with her gown. The healthy Mega Star was already done with her make up when she realized that there’s something wrong with dress she’s going to wear. So who should we blame now, the designer who made the dress or the body that couldn’t fit in it?

Rosario


Studio 5’s first venture into filmmaking is already marked with controversy. After the MMFF Gabi ng Parangal, people were questioning Dolphy’s winning of the best supporting trophy though he only appeared in the movie for a couple of minutes. A lot of people who have seen the screening of all the film entries rooted for Rosario as Best Picture. But got dismayed when MMFF board of juror gave the award instead to Ang Tanging Ina. Since Rosario is one of the two graded A films in the filmfest, the producers of the film lambasted the decision of the award giving body. Why can’t they just move on accept the fact that in every competition, there are winners and losers?

TV Patrol


When Korina Sanchez and Noli De Castro went back on anchoring the news program, we thought big changes will happen. The truth is, something big indeed happened to the program because since the return of Sanchez and De Castro, the ratings of the evening newscast plummeted to its lowest level. While TV Patrol suffers poor viewership, it directly affects the series next to its time slot. And of course that makes its rival programs exultingly jubilant.
