Joey Marquez: cleared to “walis ting-ting” case

joey_insidepic002sf1It was in the year 1996 when former Parañaque City Mayor Joey Marquez faced the graft scandal at “walis tingting”. The graft case said was controversial because upon purchasing “walis ting-ting” costing about 2.9 million pesos. Joey became the city mayor at the year 1995-2005.

It was in the year 2007 when the Sandiganbayan, sentenced Joey Marquez to 50 years of imprisonment, because of the overpriced “walis ting-ting”.
The court issued statement before : “This Court is convinced that the transactions entered into by Parañaque City relative to the walis tingting are manifestly and grossly disadvantageous to government. After that Joey Marquez post bail in the amount of 240,000 pesos, and filed the motion for reconsideration with the help of his legal cousel Atty. Noel Malaya.

Now the court reversed thier decision due to lack of evidence. Statement issued by the court: The reasoning of the Sandiganbayan is specious and off-tangent. The team reached a conclusion of gross overpricing based on documents, which, at best, would merely indicate the present market price of walis tingting of different specification, purchased from a non-supplier of Parañaque City and the
price of walis tingting in Las Piñas City.
“Effectively, the prosecution was unable to demonstrate the requisite burden of proof, i.e., proof beyond reasonable doubt in order to overcome the presumption of innocence in favor of petitioners.”

Joey is now for any case against the law. Is this the beginning of a new life to Joey?
What will be the next plan of Joey? Does he have interest to go back to politics? Lets find out what will happen next.

imagesIts been along time when Vandolph Quizon was linked to any showbiz intrigued. After marrying Jenny Fernandez no other bad news were reported against Vandolph, i can say that Vandolph has matured and proved the good father image. But until a new tabloid write up breaks the silence of Vandolph. According to the article, Vandolph was engage to gun toting, while going out from a blue car. Vandolph speak about the issue and according to him Unang-una, wala akong baril, okay? Wala akong kotse na kulay blue. Lahat ng kotse ko puro black. ‘Yung araw na ‘yun, ‘yung sinasabi niya na 5 p.m. na nangyari nasa bahay kami, nagba-barbecue kami dahil birthday ng new born namin na baby. Monthly, parang monthly celebration namin for the baby. Nagba-barbecue kami with friends tapos poker. So, nu’ng nabasa ko ’yun, tinawagan ako ng Dad (Dolphy) ko. ‘Totoo ba ito?’ ‘Hindi, ewan ko. Hindi ako ‘yan’ sabi ko. So, ‘yun lang”.

Angelica Panganiban: play as “Bidang Kontrabida”

angelLast August 13,2009 ABS-CBN previews series of shows that they work on. And one of this is the pinoy version of Mexicanovela entitled Ruby. The role was given to Angelica Panganiban whom i think can portray the role confidently. She said “Nakakakaba pero masaya siyempre dahil excited akong makita ng tao yung kakaibang timpla sa soap opera. Hindi ko inexpect na ganun ang magiging reaksyon nila. Siyempre umpisa pa lang ito pero it feels good na positive kaagad yung pagtanggap dun sa show. Wala akong masasabi pa kundi sobra-sobrang pasasalamat na sa wakas may nakakapansin ng pinaghihirapan ko bilang artista,” she happily stated. “More than the pressure, mas nagiging inspired ako na ipakita yung best ko sa sobrang tuwa, ganon ang nararamdaman ko ngayon”.

The character of Ruby is “Bidang Kontrabida“. For me as a viewer, Angelica is the best to play the role because of her angelic face. We’ve seen Angelica to play kontrabida and she did it well and so to sweet image.
People asked Angelica if she is not hesitate to accept the role, “Kung meron man akong natutunan sa career ko, dapat konting ingat [sa pagpili ng roles]. Kasi kapag nasa ganitong stage ka na pala ng pag-aartista, one mistake baka hindi ka na makabalik. Kumbaga, na-experiment ko na yung sarili ko noon, ngayon mas alam ko na kung anong dapat iwasan at kung anong tatanggapin ko. Siyempre yung pagpapasexy dito sa Rubi, hindi lang naman siya basta-basta lang kundi yun ang hinihingi ng trabaho so yun ang ibibigay ko. May reason kung bakit kailangan gawin yun and malalaman niyo yun kapag naipalabas na ang Rubi. So sana huwag mainip yung tao, sana panoorin nila,” actress said.

This teleserye i guess is much awaited, not only for the story but for actors who will play in Ruby like Jake Cuenca, Diether Ocampo, and Shaina Magdayao. Lets wait the pinoy version of Mexicanovela and how Filipino actor do this successfully.
