Kim Chiu Speaks Up To The Rumored Relationship Of Maja Salvador And Gerald Anderson

It seems like the story in the ABS-CBN primetime series Ina Kapatid Anak is being alike in the happenings in real life between the star casts, Kim Chiu and Maja Salvador.

The characters of Celyn(Kim) and Margaux(Maja) are having a conflict because of a man between them who’s Ethan(Enchong Dee).

“Nagulat ako, e, and nabigla. Hindi ko ine-expect na mangyayari itong ganito.”

“Di ba parang… bakit? I’m not… hindi naman ako bitter na kung anuman ang nangyayari sa kanila. But I’m happy for them.”

“Parang nalungkot lang ako kasi yung taong [Maja] sinabihan ko nung time na down ako dun sa [kay Gerald]… yung parang kinain niya lang yung sinabi niya.”

MAJA ASKED FOR HER PERMISSION. Does this mean there’s tension between Maja and her?

Kim said, “No, we’re good, we’re okay.”

“I don’t care… I don’t care about them. Bahala na siya.”

Do Maja and her work in Ina Kapatid Anak have been hard because of this issue?

“Hindi naman po. We can work professionally and nagawa naman po namin yun.”

“Maganda naman yung mga eksena namin. So, it’s okay.”

Being friends, did Maja make an effort to talk to her?

“She asked permission to me. And then I said, bakit kailangan pang magpaalam, e, wala na ako kay Gerald.”

“Di ba, parang ang tagal na, three years na? Ang dami pang babaeng dumaan after ko.”

“Nakakapagod na po kasi yung tanong kayo nang tanong sa akin tungkol kay Gerald, e, ang dami na niya pong dinaanang babae, di ba? Hindi lang naman po ako.”

“Bakit hindi n’yo po hingin yung opinyon ng ibang babae since marami naman po sila?” Kim said.

Why does she think it seems like her and Gerald’s names are inseparable?

“Hindi ko po alam. Ang dami naman pong nakakaalam… it’s been magti-three years na [kaming hiwalay].”

“And the press and the people kept on asking me if I’m okay, if I’m doing fine.”

“Of course, I’m doing fine. Ang tagal ko nang naka-let go and ayoko nang magpakatanga.”

Sarah Lahbati’s Issues With GMA Artist Center

It seems like there is a falling out between GMA Artist Center and their talent, Sarah Lahbati.

Thru the social networking site, Twitter, Sarah opened her grudge with the artist development and management center of Kapuso Network.

Sarah has a contract with GMA Artist Center for five years since she won as the Ultimate Female Survivor of Starstruck V last 2010.

On Sarah’s Twitter account (@SarahLahbati), wherein she has 330,364 followers, the young actress revealed her sentiments on GMA Artist Center.

Sarah started posting her message last January 2, 11:23 p.m.

It appears that Sarah has many complaints to the ones who were holding her career in GMA-7 so she and her parents decided to sign with Royale Era Entertainment & Artist Management, the talent management outfit of Annabelle Rama.

They assigned Annabelle which is the mother of Richard Gutierrez, Sarah’s boyfriend to be the co-manager.

SARAH’S TWEETS. Here are the following tweets of Sarah:

“To all my friends and supporters, I’d like to thank you for the love and loyalty you’ve given me. I’ve been very blessed last year and I’m grateful to all of you but unfortunately you will be seeing less of me this year for reasons that are hard to explain through Twitter…”

“I’ve had misunderstandings with the people who are handling my career. I am still thankful to them for the efforts they have shown in the past but now I feel neglected and my back is against the wall…”

“Therefor I have to do something. Just to clarify this issue that’s been going around, I signed a contract with Royal Artist (Tita Annabelle Rama) as a co manager with GMA Artist Center because I needed someone to protect & help my well being in this cut throat industry.”

“Tita Annabelle only wants the best for me, with her years of experience and success in this industry I know that she’s the right person to help me.”

Sarah also revealed on her tweet the offer of GMA Artist Center to make her sign ICONS Talent Management Agency.

The ICONS Talent Management Agency is another management arm of GMA-7 powered by Bebong Muñoz, the ex-boyfriend of Jolina Magdangal.

SARAH’S CAREER. If Sarah’s decision to go back to Switzerland pushed through, many will feel sort to her showbiz career since she’s being build up by Kapuso Network as being a leading lady.

Since 2010, there have been many projects done by Sarah. Including the Love Bug: Exchange of Hearts, Little Star, Time of My Life, Maynila, and Spooky Nights.

In the movie, Sarah was in White House and Boy Pick-Up: The Movie

Sarah is also one of the female endorsers of Bench Body.

The Pinay-Swiss Kapuso actress was launched in the 2011 afternoon soap, Kokak.

She was the leading lady of Richard Gutierrez in the primetime series, Makapiling Kang Muli(2012) where their love for each other has started

They have also finished a movie, the sexy drama, Seduction with Solenn Heussaff. It is a comeback directorial job of Peque Gallaga.

Sarah Geronimo on Her Wrong Relationships: “Sana bago pumasok sa ganitong klaseng bagay, bago ako niligawan, dapat sigurado sila.”

Gerald Anderson’s courtship to Sarah has been an open book in 2012, but it stopped due to the singer-actress parents’ wishes.

 But according to Sarah, “Ayoko siyang pag-usapan.”

“Hindi lahat ng napapanood natin, yun ‘yon.”

“Hindi ko na alam… ayoko nang pag-usapan pa.”

Sarah has experienced two heartbreaks already. First with Rayver Cruz and Gerald was next.

Because of what happened, does Sarah now prefer that the next one she will love will be from non-showbiz?

She respond, “Nandun yung preference na sana non-showbiz, kasi siyempre alam naman natin na mahirap na nama-magnify ka, gustong malaman ng lahat kung anong progreso na, kung ano na nangyayari sa relasyon ninyo… so mahirap.”

“Saka ako yung tao na kulang pa sa eksperyensiya.”

“Hindi ko alam kung paano pangalagaan pa o kung ano ba ang dapat na gawin ko para halimbawa maging gaya nila Ate Juday [Judy Ann Santos] and Kuya Ryan [Agoncillo]… yung mga successful sa mga celebrity couples natin.”

OTHER HEARTACHES. Sarah also revealed that went through heartaches not only with Rayver and Gerald, but there are also people who became part of her life that gave her a failure.

“Hindi siya second, many times na rin.”

“Kahit naman wala pa ako sa show business, may mga heartaches na rin.”

“Masyado kasi akong sheltered kaya pag na-brokenhearted ako, wasak talaga.”

“Ganun talaga ako, grabe talaga.”

“Iba ako magbigay ng tiwala kasi akala ko, kung paano kita pagkatiwalaan, ganun mo din ako pagkakatiwaaan. Kung gaano kita minamahal, ganun mo rin ako mamahalin.”

“Dapat matagal ko nang natutuhan na i-guard talaga ang puso ko.”

“Dapat talaga makita mo kung ano siyang tao.”

“Pag nai-in love kasi tayo, nawawala lahat yun, nakakalimutan mo.”

Although what was going on between them didn’t push through, there are things that Sarah values in the courtship of Gerald.

“Yung effort, yung willingness na harapin ang mga magulang.”

“Pero siyempre, hinahanap natin yung consistency.”

“Iba yung kayo, iba yung nakikita sa mga tao sa paligid ninyo—yung sincerity.”

In the end, Sarah leans only to her family after what happened.

She stated, “Napakalaking bagay nila sa kung anuman sa akin at responsiblidad ng mga magulang.”

“Kumbaga, they have all the right na pangalagaan ang anak nilang babae.”

“Kilala naman nila ako, ang situation ko, hindi madali.”

“Sana bago pumasok sa ganitong klaseng bagay, bago ako niligawan, dapat sigurado sila.”

Sarah admitted that she was hurt to what happened between Gerald and her.

“Ayokong sabihin na hindi ako nasaktan, talagang nasaktan ako kung ano ang nangyari.”

“Pero ito ang gusto ng Diyos, ayaw na nating kuwestiyunin.”

“Hindi ko alam kung nasaktan talaga siya [Gerald].”

“Oo, totoo yun, yung sinabi ni Ate Juday na in every heartaches, mas masakit.”

TRAUMA. Does the happenings gave her trauma to the point that she can tell to herself that she should be really careful to the next man she will love?

“May ganun, siyempre kung anuman ang nangyari sa akin, naulit lang, e.”

“Nagtiwala ako agad, ganun, ganyan.”

“Dapat maging leksyon talaga kung anuman ang mga nangyari sa akin in the past.”

Sarah was true to herself that the painful happenings affect her work but she used it in a positive way.

“Oo, kahit ayaw mong isama, halimbawa may pinagdadaanan, ang maganda diyan, ang sarap umiyak sa mga eksena.”

“Wala na ako dun, tapos na ako dun.”

“Sa ngayon, wala na.”

“Nandun yung memories, yung mga bagay na nagpapasakit ng loob mo.”

“Pero ayokong mag-dwell dun kasi hindi ka magiging masaya. Ayaw mo namang mabuhay sa ganun.”

 

Sisterakas is on its way to becoming “highest-grossing Filipino film of all-time

Could Sisterakas be the new “highest-grossing Filipino movie of all time”?

According to the latest post of Kris Aquino on Twitter this day, January 3, the revenue of their movie has reached to “P265,765,433.26″ as of January 2.

Kris is with Vice Ganda and Ai-Ai delas Alas in the movie.

Meanwhile, there’s an unofficial report that the earnings of the Star Cinema/Viva Films movie entry has closed to P239,246,804 in the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival last January 1.

Based with the tweet of Kris, one of the lead cast and producer of Sisterakas, there’s a possibility that it may overpass the comedy film, The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin (2011).

The box-office return has reached to P200M of Praybeyt Benjamin starring Vice Ganda on the eighth screening of it in the movie house.

Within 20 days of screening, the movie earnings reached to P320M which co-produced by Star Cinema and Viva Films.

Because of this, Praybeyt Benjamin holds the record today as the “highest-grossing Filipino movie of all time.”

Like Praybeyt Benjamin, Vice is one of the actors and Wenn Deramas as the Director of Sisterakas.

Here are the latest unofficial box-office results for other participants in the 2012 movie MMFF:

One More Try  – P175.6 million

The pageant happened at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas this year and the hosts are Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic.

The theme of the opening production number of the 89 candidates from different part of the world was Christmas Inspired.

Representatives from Venezuela, Turkey, France, Peru, Russia, Mexico, Poland, Hungary, South Africa, Philippines, Croatia, Brazil, Kosovo, Australia, India, and USA enter Top 16.

After this, the swimsuit competition follows where the “cobra walk” of Janine marked.

Follows to this was the announcement of the Top 10: Australia, Russia, Brazil, France, Venezuela, USA, Hungary, South Africa, Mexico, and the last to mentioned Philippines.

The short video clip of the Final 16 was shown in the television.

In here, Miss Philippines stated: “For me, being here is a battle of a lifetime.”

“Filipinos really love Miss Universe and they’re like, hoping and anticipating and very into it.”

“If I win, it’s like I gave the Filipinos hope, happiness, and Christmas gift.”

Next was the evening gown competition where Janine wore a sky blue, electric-pleated, sheer gown.

After this, Top 5 was announced.

In no particular order, first to call was Miss Venezuela Irene Esser, next Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon, then Miss Australia Renae Ayris, Miss USA Olivia Culpo, and Miss Brazil Gabriela Markus.

In the question and answer portion, Nigel Barker read the question which came from Twitter, for Janine.

The question was, “Do you believe that speaking English should be prerequisite for Miss Universe?”

Her answer, “For me, being Miss Universe is not just about knowing how to speak a specific language.”

“It’s about being able to influence and inspire other people.”

“So whatever language you have, if you have a heart to serve and a strong mind to show people, then you can be Miss Universe.”

Many admire Miss Philippines’ answer so much that they conclude she can get the crown.

But the jury chose Miss USA Olivia Culpo, and Janine as the 1st runner-up.
