People of the week

…are talking about

That’s My Tomboy

That's My Tomboy

It’s Showtime’s new segment puts the spotlight on lesbians who can pass as heartthrobs at first glance. When That’s My Tomboy was introduced last week, viewers went gaga over the contestants mainly because of their handsome features. Some critics were quick to judge saying that the contest doesn’t have any relevance to promoting gay rights. But come to think of it, this is just TV, and people simply are looking for entertainment.

Jessy Mendiola

It’s safe to say that the Kapamilya talent is the new “crush ng bayan.” Jessy’s charisma, after she was launched on ABS-CBN, charmed instantly not just all college boys but also the viewing public. As a result, the drama series she stars in is now one of the most watched programs on the primetime block.

Gloc 9

In the recently concluded Star Awards for Music, the rapper bagged the highest honor given out that night. Interestingly, Gloc 9’s win was rather unexpected. If we were to base it from the list of names called out as winners during the awards show, you wouldn’t expect Star Awards to honor genuine talent and artistry.

…are not talking about

 Kung Fu Divas

AiAi delas Alas and Marian Rivera’s camps are tightlipped on the performance of their comedy flick. Even Star Cinema, which co-produced the movie, is mum about the box office earning of the much-publicized project. Normally, stars update their fans on the box office returns of their movie even if it’s just the first day. Is their silence an indication that the movie didn’t do well? We visited the movie houses and we can attest that there were long queues, but they’re not for Kung Fu Divas apparently.

Sharon Cuneta

She hasn’t loved any television show like the way she loves Madam Chairman noting that in her three-decade showbiz career, it’s her first time in a TV series. She couldn’t thank enough the Kapatid network as well for the opportunity to do something different in her career. Well at least at her age, she still wants to reinvent herself, the only problem is, nobody’s watching TV5, hence no viewers will be there to appreciate Sharon’s new venture.

Kahit Nasaan Ka Man

The Kapuso network is brave enough to have this teen drama take a timeslot dominated by Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo’s Got To Believe when in fact the only easy to recall name in the series is that of Julie Anne San Jose. Let’s give them an “A” for the courage but then again primetime block is an arena of the popularity, which the series lacks to begin with.
