Being a minor, is Zaijan Jaranilla working beyond 10pm? This can’t be as ABS-CBN strictly observes the 10pm cutoff for minor talents. Can he be overworked then? Read more…

Michael Flores vouches for Richard Gutierrez

Michael flores

THE co-stars of Richard Gutierrez in “Zorro” and its crew members all speak highly of him. They say he’s “mabait, marunong makisama, mapagkumbaba and never throws his weight around the set even if he’s the show’s title roler.” This is the reason why they don’t believe that Richard pointed a gun at Michael Flores during the birthday party of Direk Mark Reyes.

“Nagkatrabaho na kami ni Richard noon sa ‘Kamandag’ and he’s so easy to work with,” says Michael. “Wala talagang anumang away that happened between us.”

“Even when I was a total newcomer paired to him for the first time in ‘Captain Barbell’, talagang mabait na si Richard, very accommodating and supportive,” says his leading lady Rhian Ramos. “Kaya nga good karma siya kasi lahat ng naging shows niya sa GMA, all topraters, just like ‘Zorro’ na kahit siya sinisiraan, mataas pa rin ang ratings.” Read more..

It’s about time Mr. Flores cleared the issue about him and Mr. Richard Gutierrez, and shows some appreciation towards the actor.

Katrina has a new friend?

katrinaThe buzz is Katrina Halili has caused the break up of JC Tiuseco and his older lawyer girlfriend. JC seems to don’t find the time to be with her ex-gf. He was with Katrina in Boracay last Holy Week shacking in Carmela De Boracay hotel. When former f___ing friend Kris Lawrence looked for her, she was with JC in her room. She claims they were with girl friends. But JC has dismissed these buzzes.

If this true, Katrina’s getting the image of a man snatcher. If she stole Hayden Kho from Dra. Vicki Belo, she did it again with JC from his girlfriend. Katrina must learn notoriety puts her in tab heads but it takes away income earners. Even if she has a good manager, it doesn’t replace a highly marketable talent. Many products don’t want to be associated with negatively perceived endorsers. It doesn’t even make people watch movies and television shows except perhaps no-income talk shows.

Katrina was last seen in Dear friend’s series.

Carlo J. Caparas: An endless parade of TV hits

carlo1It was Carlo J. Caparas, the Komiks King no less, who kicked off the current trend of movies-adapted-for TV.

The endless parade of Caparas TV hits goes on — with more coming!

The good thing about Carlo (who has been awarded for enhancing the National Language) is that he — and his wife Donna Villa — have kept themselves above the never-ending network war. Thus, Carlo happily crosses boarders while maintaining his “neutral” stance and identifying himself neither a Kapamilya nor a Kapuso. As they would say, trabaho lang, walang personalan.

Carlo J Caparas is indeed a good komiks writer.
