Who wants ‘Willing Willie’ back?

by Nickie Wang

We asked 30 random people if they want Willie Revillame’s Willing Willie back on TV5. Our sampling is not that scientific, to begin with, but we have found something interesting that we didn’t expect—18 of our respondents don’t want TV5 to air the variety show any longer. Continue reading

WITHOUT WANG²: Young Filipinos’ film festival

by Nickie Wang

Meryll Soriano and Lovi Poe went home bagged the Balanghai Best Actress trophy in last week’s closing ceremonies of the digital-driven Cinemalaya film festival. So, those who did not care to watch the conclusion of Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival and Competition held at the CCP Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo would ask: were they a tie?

…are talking about

Aga Muhlach

aga_muhlachAbout eighty people, close friends and relatives of Aga and wife Charlene, were flown to Pili in Camarines Sur (Governor LRay Villafuerte loves to call his province just CamSur) and back to Manila for a four-day action-packed vacation. Aga celebrated his 40th birthday and there’s no other way to make the people who are dear to him happy but to treat them with a lavish party overflowing with food and drinks. Most of them are Aga’s disciples and so they joined him in his latest addiction -wakeboarding. The newcomers…do they have a choice…but try it as well. Those who couldn’t be coaxed played tourists around nearby Naga City.

Bianca Manalo

The local franchisee of the Miss Universe pageant thought her family name would bring luck to the country. No, it didn’t. A lot of beauty pageant experts (who call themselves pageantologists) said that she was the best performing Asian delegate this year but too much politics failed her bid for the title. But why blame it on the politics? Ten years and it has been like that, there must be something wrong with Mrs. Stella Marquez-Araneta’s way of choosing the girl for the pageant. She is a Colombian, so she should know that the pageant is too Latina-obsessed.

Luis Manzano

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and surely his rumored break up with Angel Locsin didn’t just come from someone who is trying to ruin their relationship. The actor has been quiet about the issue and chooses to divert the attention to his upcoming movie with mom Vilma Santos and John Lloyd Cruz. According to the grape vine there are two sides to the story, both of which either Luis and Angel don’t want to reveal. So, everyone is busy making a wild guess.

…are not talking about


katorseAfter several months of being shelved, the series was finally aired last Monday. The bad thing is that the pilot episode is an epic fail if we are going to base it on the data released by AGB Nielsen. The viewers are laughing at the network’s decision to put an overaged Erich Gonzales in the lead role – she is definitely not 14 and doesn’t even look it. Everyone at that time seems to have been hypnotized to watch the rival network’s program. Perhaps Kris Bernal and Aljur Abrenica are more tolerable to watch.

Carlo J. Caparas

All of a sudden, this controversial personality has just expressed willingness to run for a public office after a group protested that he be given a National Artist award. He said it’s time for him to fight for the rights of people being marginalized by people with influence. Carlo has found another way to soothe his aching heart….shoot a movie starring Manny Pacquiao.

Willie Revillame

Do you think Wowowee is better off without him? While Willie is on an extended vacation, the noon time show still performs well in the ratings race. The program is actually even more entertaining now that Pokwang, Valerie Concepcion, and Mariel Rodriguez are the only ones who host the show. Maybe Willie could further extend his vacation and let these girls handle the entire program.

takipsilim-poster-cast-pictureRiding on the mammoth success of the movie Twilight, ABSCBN, according to reports, paid a whooping $ 1 million for the exclusive rights to turn the romantic-fantasy film into a television series. Although the broadcasting giant has denied the report, rants and raves already had circulated around internet forums and blogosphere. Even famous Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton featured the report in his blog.

Hilton’s post was flooded by raging comments (8,000 negative comments) from American Twilight fanatics. One comment there said that he’s a Filipino but he feels ashamed because he believes that ABSCBN will just do a ridiculous remake.  After negative feedbacks, the link on ABSCBN News Online Beta, where the report came from, was permanently removed. It only means that Takipsilim that was supposed to headline  Shaina Magdayao and Rayver Cruz as the lead stars is just a hoax.

Meanwhile, former beauty queen Carlene Aguilar was spotted wet.

carleneMama wants to get hotter so she bares her skin like what those voluptuous single ladies do. Because she thinks she’s sizzling, she dips her self in a glass water tank to see that mama can still look awesome even wet for hours.

Carlene welcomes the readers of a male magazine with her statuesque figure in a wet fashion. According to the former lover of Dennis Trillo, hotness should not stop at motherhood so she makes a bold statement by posing in a two-piece bikini believing that people will get notice of her once again.

If you’ve noticed Carlene’s bold move, we have something to tell  that might give you another reason why you should not allow your children to watch Wowowee.

wowowee1Willie Revillame’s noontime show is assigning a new meaning to the word smile. We don’t know if the script writers of the show and or even the hosts had visited their dictionary lately. Maybe it is just their numskulled idea to promote the new tagline of Coke. In a segment sponsored by the product, people in the audience are asked to give their most beautiful smiles. What makes it noticeable hilarious and then irritating is when Willie asks the sound engineer to stop the background music to give way to a laugh that supposed to be just a grin.

“Out music, okay smile,” Willie would say giving the microphone to the lucky audience who sometimes lacks teeth on his gum. “Smile ‘yung may tunog,” and the word massacre continue.
