Na Siete Si Claudine

Has anyone knows Claudine nowadays? Since she left the TV network ABS-CBN Channel 2,her career becomes spinning down the drain up into no one already know who she is because rough times just shit(Siete)(7) her when she transfer to GMA Channel 7; from flop TV shows into rumor break-ups with her husband actor Raymart Santiago into financial bankruptcy; from her rumor return to TV network ABS-CBN Channel 2;and now into controversial heat up together with her husband Raymart Santiago with columnist Ramon Tulfo at the arrival area of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 last Sunday, May 6,2012.

The brawl started according to reports that when actress Ms. Claudine Barreto reprimanded the flight attendant of the Cebu Pacific Airlines when she found out some of her luggage were missing then she saw an unknown man taking coverage or taking pictures what was happening with her with the flight attendant while she bash loudly in front of the other passengers regarding their missing luggage which according to Ms. Barreto and her group was left or off-loaded by a personnel at Aklan airport without their consent from their Boracay trip when they arrived at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 thru Cebu Pacific Airlines.

Her husband actor Raymart Santiago or Martin Santiago in real life confronted the unknown man taking advantage of her wife bashing acts and found out to be the columnist Ramon Tulfo who happens to be on the arrival area also from his trip from Davao. According to columnist Ramon Tulfo, at first he felt pity for what happened to celebrity couple Raymart and Claudine but change his heart when he saw the tongue lashing acts of Ms. Barreto to an ordinary flight attendant and then took advantage the incident as a journalist who seeks interesting, controversial and juicy reports.

Who the first who took the punch and skirmish was not yet known for the incident is still under investigation, however, both parties blame it’s the other party who started the brawl, thus both file counter charges. Sad to say the incident was not caught by a close circuit television (CCTV) cameras according to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3 manager Octavio Lina.

The incident is now the talk of the town and actress Ms. Claudine Barreto’s career just become worst because of the said incident or brawl. Her showbiz career just become more “Shit”(Siete :7) since she transfer to GMA Channel 7 for if it is not why her showbiz becomes lie low.

More unpleasant incidents involving her, her Philippine showbiz career will become doom or she will become one of the forgotten actresses on the Philippine entertainment industry.

AJ’s Death Premonitions

Coincidence or Predestined?

It is customary for us Filipinos to seek for premonitions when someone meets sudden death and as for the late teen actor AJ Perez death his parents reveals also. But there is more to it than mere “saying goodbye” premonitions, for it is indeed astounding that his death was somewhat predestined because of some instances which can never be considered as a mere coincidence that gave us a hint of his forthcoming death and the way he will die. These two premonitions reveals a pattern which was not given notice or attention to avert his kind of death (that is dying early on the limelight) and eventually save his young life from being entangled to this synchronized pattern of death.

Almost Identical Destiny;The Two Late actors(Rico and AJ)

Almost Identical Destiny;The Two Late actors(Rico and AJ)

The instances and premonitions, what some now found mysterious is first (1) his admiration for the late young actor Rico Yan who also die at the young age at the peak of his shining Philippine showbiz career wherein reports said that the late teen actor AJ Perez seek for Rico Yan’s large picture at ABS-CBN hall of stars in order to take pictures together with him; (2) second, is the lead role he have played on his last drama series “Sabel”.”Sabel” was a remake drama which was formerly played on the lead role AJ Perez played by a late young actor also at the early 80s who also die at the young age at the peak of his Philippine showbiz career, that is the late young actor Alfie Anido.

It is really surprising that it seems somewhat that the late teen actor AJ Perez have followed unknowingly the Showbiz footsteps of these two late young actors into their grave; and make us think that is it really possible that if we follow the steps that once have tread, we will also end up what the former travelers on the path end up with? Or it is really a predestined destiny and death? Or AJ Perez untimely death can be aborted if one just become circumspect of the showbiz path the unknowingly tread upon if this pattern has been quickly notice?

Furthermore, AJ Perez was born at the 17th of February and died also at the 17th of April and once 17 years old two months ago before he died at the 17th day of April. See there is a sequence or pattern, but not only AJ Perez but it have happened also to my late uncle. My late uncle was born at the 19th of July and died at the 19th of April and he started to be bedridden which leads him into his grave hours pass the 19th of March.

It is indeed scary to learn such pattern of death but anywhere you are; here in the Philippines or in other countries; coincidence or not, death comes like a thief in the night sometimes though we map its forthcoming and do something to abort it.

However,death could NOT surprise us or rob suddenly our precious life if we learn to be circumspect and always have the two word of caution in our pocket – “take care”

Robin’s Charisma

What’s with Robin Padilla?

It is not hard to decipher why Mariel Rodriquez quickly give in to Mr. Robin Padilla despite of all the controversies that will be throw to her, because Robin Padilla is not like the other sweetie matinee idols sprouting like mushrooms on Philippine Showbizlandia that can be suspected as gay due to some closet feminist mannerism these matinee idols displays. For Robin have an aura of true blooded manly and masculine type of guy that have no spark of effeminate tendency. He has a true masculine charisma despite of his rift with his former wife, which could sweep away every women and gay hearts alike.

Like what all sees him, he has a “tigasin” projection and mannerism which could not be suspected to be fake, which indeed projects true masculinity despite he do not have much muscles. For though if a man have muscles or hunk if he has an effeminate tendency or have a feminine mannerism, a straight women will be turn off, even gays who look for real man in town. Just like what happened between Ms. Carmina Villaroel and Robin’s brother (now sister?) Rustom Padilla (now BB Gandanghari) wherein back then Rustom Padilla have a hunky and muscular body yet it turns out now that true masculinity cannot be fake with masculine muscles or masculine body.

Mariel Rodriquez

Mariel Rodriguez

Thus, so Mariel Rodriquez has quickly jumped into Robin Padilla’s boat, wherein now they are rumored to be already married. What a shock and quick serendipity of True Love?!

But what about those women in Robin’s past wherein now his romanticism toward them have somewhat fade; as I remember they too were quickly attached to Robin’s masculine magnet, but what happen now to them? Therefore, let us see what will happen to Mariel Rodriquez’s love story with Prince Charming Robin Padilla, if their love story will be a already a happy ever after for Robin or not yet, as Robin Padilla’s mother wish for him, as it was reported in the Philippine Showbiz News, hopefully Mariel Rodriquez is already the girl Robin Padilla wanted to keep in his heart or truly for keeps.

Oh yes, how Mariel Rodriguez so greatly in love with Mr. robin Padilla for she sacrifice her long time friendship with Ms. Toni Gonzaga and choose her love for Robin, though her friendship with Toni Gonzaga will have a tear, as it was reported on the news. However, Ms. Toni Gonzaga have no such somewhat resentment regarding Mariel Rodriquez decision.

Furthermore, not only Ms. Toni Gonzaga’s supposed to be movie project with Mr. Robin Padilla is thwarted by the sudden love affair of Robin and Mariel, which caused her friendship with Mariel tainted; but also Robin and Mariel’s brand new noontime show “Pilipinas Win na Win” on ABS-CBN channel 2 was greatly affected to give way to their love story, which caused the new show to suffer early reformats and controversy.

Oh when love comes in, it conquers all and swept away everything it passes like a winnowing fan.

Pangako Sa’yo

Pangako Sa’yo’s Success

Of all local produced Philippine TV drama series, only Pangako Sa’yo hits the high ratings on both local Philippine television and Philippine’s neighboring Asian countries on their respective local television. Recently, ABS-CBN Global reported that Pangako Sa’yo is second on the highest rating TV program on local China Television, translated on Mandarin language. This is the latest achievements of Pangako Sa’yo, for before it become a hit TV program in China, it hit the TV ratings first in Malaysia, wherein the Philippine actor Jericho Rosales – the local leading actor of Pangako Sa’yo- became an instant heartthrob in Malaysia among Malaysian women which compels him to go to Malaysia and performs a show together with his own boy band.

The success of Pangako Sa’yo in Malaysia leads ABS-CBN Channel 2 and the Malaysian TV network to do a merged TV production that will be aired both in the Philippine Television and Malaysian Television, comprising two respective local stars. This planned TV production has already executed which produce the new TV drama series: Kahit Isang Saglit, which stars Jericho Rosales as the leading Pinoy star and Carmen Soo as the leading Malaysian Female star. Like Pangako Sa’yo, Kahit Isang Saglit has also become a hit on Pinoy Television.

Furthermore, Pangako Sa’yo not only makes the careers of Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa but also gives the needed boost to the careers of Eula Valdes and Jean Garcia which gave them a renewed career in Philippine Showbiz which they currently enjoy now.

Bebe Gandanghari

The Shocking Rustom Padilla a.k.a. Bb Gandanghari

I don’t know but perhaps, it is only in the Philippine showbiz that any handsome and hunk male celebrity or showbiz stars is overtly suspected to be a closet gay. But of course, the accused party is in total denial and show proofs that he is a real man, to cast away doubts and rumors that he might be a gay because this could ruin his precious career and matinee idol image.

Rustom Padilla

However, some matinee idols give in to the rumors and bravely admit that the rumors about him being a gay guy are true. The most recent who do this brave revelation is the former cute hunk matinee idol Rustom Padilla who have shock the entire Philippine showbiz industry when his beautiful big hunky body shrunk into very skinny body complexion when he was interviewed abroad by a showbiz porter of what is now happening to him abroad after his break-up with his former wife Ms. Carmina Villaroel.

Many thought, he has caught a disease abroad because of his so very skinny body and was greatly devastated by his break-up with Carmina Villaroel. But there are still lingering rumor that he might be a gay. Actually, both the camps of Rustom Padilla and Carmina Villaroel were interviewed then about if Rustom is gay or not, but both parties never answer straight, until Rustom himself break the mystery when he confessed through the TV program Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition that he is indeed gay and justified his being gay when he said “..hindi ako masamang tao…” (“..i am not an evil person…”,because the Christian church have demonized that gays are inherently evil and sinful creatures. But that doesn’t end the shock of the Philippine showbiz industry on him. He shocks more the Philippine showbiz industry when he finally cross-dress and said he is a woman and ever since he already knew that he is a woman. Moreover, he also personally declared that Rustom Padilla is now dead, he is now Bebe (Bb) Gandanghari – the woman and the real her who is hiding in the body and personage of Rustom Padilla. Recently, it was reported that he is planning or fly abroad for a sex change procedure.

Wowowee

The Philippine TV Comic Millionaire

Who can imagine that a poor showbiz underdog personality that begins in the Philippine showbiz as a mere extra into a favorite naughty comic side-kick of most Philippine action stars in their respective movies surprises the entire Philippines showbiz land when he becomes an instant millionaire by just hosting a regular daily noontime show on ABS-CBN Channel 2 having a salary of more than 20 million pesos a month.

Wowowee

Wowowee

But this was just a rough assumption of his monthly income because the management of ABS-CBN Channel 2 never reveals the real deal of his monthly income. Actually, some guess that it could be 25 million pesos per month or even more than a whooping 40 million pesos a month because he files a 40 million pesos tax regularly on the Bureau of Internal Revenue or BIR.

It is really surprising that his talent fee have accelerated into so much height that even the president of the Philippines never have a salary like it, yet this comic Philippine star still express complains on his own noontime show or is he just so pressured and stress of his popularity and instant riches and wealth?

Willie Revillame

Willie Revillame

Of course, what I am talking about is Mr. Wowowee – Willie Revillame, who has a public life or an open life ever since he began joining showbiz. Every Filipino TV viewers have witness his ups and downs and now his condition from rags into riches. Some loves him but some hates him because of his naughty and straightforward mouth. His noontime show –Wowowee have beaten the No.1 ratings of its competitor noontime show – Eat Bulaga, one time.
