IMG_3005Manila, Philippines, ABS-CBN star Angel Locsin said she is not open to being courted by 2009 CNN “Hero of the Year” Efren Peñaflorida at the moment.

In an interview, Locsin said that she and Peñaflorida are just good friends. ” Iki-clear ko lang ‘yon. Hindi ako nagpapaligaw. Right now, we are good friends,” Locsin added.

I don’t want to entertain Luis while I’m entertaining others. I don’t want to lead on someone who is making an effort,” Locsin said.

“Hindi naman kami nagmamadali pero hindi naman maalis kung gaano ka-special sa akin si Luis. Pero right now ayaw ko munang pumasok sa relationship,” Locsin said.

Manzano was lukewarm to Peñaflorida’s plans to woo his ex-girlfriend. He stated, however, that he respects Peñaflorida’s work as a social worker who teaches out-of-school youth through his “Pushcart Classes” project.

Pinto was evicted from the PBB House on January 9 after she received the lowest text votes that week.


James Yap is on defense!

222Manila, Philippines – Star cager James Yap, Husband of Kris Aquino, has broken his silence on the “confrontation” between his wife and  a female fan, Mayen Autria.

Yap defended his wife against her critics about the incident. He also emphasized that Mayen is not his girlfriend.

“Hindi naman totoo ‘yon, hindi naman totoo. Siyempre lumalabas na naman ngayon na babae ko ‘yon. Hindi ko naman mabi-blame si Kris na mag-react ng ganoon. May karapatan naman si Kris na mag-react ng ganoon dahil asawa niya ako,” Yap said.

In 20047, Yap was rumored to have had a romantic affair with Hope Centeno, receptionist at the Belo Medical clinic then. It was the second time that the yap couple’s love troubles have made headlines.  Yap denied the rumors.

“When he answered, I heard a girl crying. I could hear their conversation because it was quiet in the house. Sinasabi noong girl, ginawa ko naman lahat… then James answered na kung ayaw sa ‘yo, ‘wag mo pagpilitan ang sarili mo,” Aquino narrated.

She said she asked Yap who called and he told her that it was Austria.

“Sabi ni James nagsabi sa kanya na iniwan daw ng isang guy and ‘di alam ang gagawin. I asked him kung kilala niya iyong guy, he said no. So nagtaka ako, I said bakit ikaw ang iniiyakan?”

“I pointed out to James it was not proper. Baka she (Austria) was under the illusion that I’m not real, that I’m just a TV personality. So gusto ko puntahan para pakita na flesh and blood ako… tao ako… at misis ako,” Aquino added.

She said she went to see Austria, who lived two streets away from their house. She said she rang the doorbell and Austria’s mom came out.

“I said ma’am, I wanted to let you know, your daughter has been calling my husband and I’m not comfortable about it,” she said.

“Never ako nagmura, never nanlait. Pinaramdam ko lang ang aking displeasure, siyempre asawa ako,” said Aquino.


Celebrities’ talents on ‘Magpasikat’

Due to the suspension of the talent-reality show “Showtime” for  20 days, Showtime replaced by “Magpasikat”. Unlike Showtime, this show will showcase the talents of celebrities.

The suspension rooted from the statement of Rosanna Roces pertaining to teachers. She said, they (teachers) are just repeaters.

Evening the same day, “showtime” made a public announcement that was broadcasted by Boy Abunda in his late night show “Showbiz News Ngayon” (SNN) saying the management of the show is suspending Rosanna Roces.

Even though self regulations were imposed, still they received suspension from MTRCB. And since the order is effective immediately, ABS-CBN stopped the airing of the show.
