Vhong Navarro Speaks Up About Attack in BGC Condo

Vhong Navarro, comedian-TV host in ABS-CBN’s Showtime, denied rape allegations and claimed that he was attacked upon arrival in his friend’s condo.

In an exclusive interview in the talk show “The Buzz,” Vhong claimed that the event was staged to blackmail him into giving money. “They want me to give them Php 1-million. From 200,000 it went up to 500,000 until it reached 1-million and eventually 2-million.”

He said that they forced him to sign a police blotter stating that he raped Deniece Milet Cornejo, the alleged rape victim and his friend who owns the Bonifacio Global City condo unit where he was attacked. ”It was indicated in the document that they won’t pursue the case, that they won’t file complaints because we have a deal. The police blotter was designed to protect them in case I tell the authorities the truth.”

Vhong also mentioned the name of the alleged mastermind, Cedric Lee, who apparently, led the group who attacked him. “…I recognized him (when he went into the room). At first, he (Cedric) introduced himself and then he tied up my hands and feet. He shoved me to the floor and started hitting me.”

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).

Friends in real life Kim and Maja are being intrigued because of Maja being link to the ex-boyfriend of Kim, Gerald Anderson.

In the press conference of Ina Kapatid Anak book 2 last night, January 8, at Luxent Hotel in Timog Avenue, Quezon City, Kim breaks her silence about the rumor of Maja and Gerald’s relationship.

Kim said, “For me, I’m happy for them.”

“Wala naman pong masama, pareho naman po silang single.”

“Maging masaya na lang po tayo para sa kanilang dalawa.”

But she added, “Nakakalungkot lang, kasi yung friendship, nasayang.”

Kim never thought that it is possible for her friend and ex-boyfriend to develop a mutual feeling to each other.

“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.”

“She knows Gerald… who Gerald is.”

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.”

“Kaya medyo naaano lang ako na ang daming tao na nagtatanong sa akin about Gerald. Bakit?”

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

TIRED OF QUESTIONS ABOUT GERALD. Kim didn’t hide her irritation to the ongoing inquiry of people and press about Gerald.

“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.”

Kim admitted that she and Gerald weren’t close again since after the breakup. This is despite the movie they worked together, 24/7 Inlove.

“Kami ni Gerald… hindi kami naging close. We just did it for work,” She said.

POSITIVE IN 2013. This 2013, what does she want to change or be goal this year?

Kim answered, “Parang positivity, fearless, be happy, and then let’s just enjoy.”

“And sa mga basher, tama na po. Let’s just be happy for the both of them [Maja at Gerald].”

“Kung nagmamahalan sila, kung anuman yung nararamdaman nila sa isa’t isa, maging masaya na lang po tayo.”

 

Angelica Panganiban Admits To Being Pressured As John Lloyd Cruz’s Girlfriend

The much awaited live interview of Angelica Panganiban was finally pushed through on a Sunday showbiz talk show of ABS-CBN, The Buzz, last Sunday, December 16.

Recently, Angelica mentioned in a sense of joke on her Twitter account that she will appoint herself an interview with Boy Abunda, but he is so busy at the moment so she approved to be interviewed by her followers instead.

And as expected, Boy was the one who interviewed Angelica last Sunday.

Boy’s first question was about Angelica’s lines in the trailer of the movie One More Try: “Ang pera natin, hindi basta-basta nauubos. Pero ang pasensiya ko, konti na lamang.”

When Angelica and John Lloyd Cruz admitted their relationship, they’re some who’s happy for them and also not. There are also some that encroach on them.

In real life, does her patience running out also?

“Mabilis po!” Angelica said with a laugh.

“Hindi naman ho… siguro yung temper ko rin talaga, mabilis lang din mag-init ang ulo ko.”

“Pero, hindi naman din yung pasensiya. “

“Yung biglang init ng ulo, dun po, hirap na hirap po talaga akong mag-control. “

“Actually, gustung-gusto ko nang magbago. Dito pala aamin?” She said scoffing.

The Kapamilya actress added, “Gusto ko na hong magbago, joke lang!”

“Minsan naman, umaamin naman talaga ako na, ‘Ay, sorry, nadala lang talaga ako ng emotion ko, hindi ko na siya na-control.’”

“Pero siyempre, hindi lang naman ho intriga ang kasama namin araw-araw. “

­­“Napapagod kami, napupuyat kami, so sama-sama na ho talaga lahat.”

HAPPY. Boy straightly questioned Angelica if she and John Lloyd are happy.

“Slight!” Angelica responds with a laugh.

But are they happy?

“Opo,” She smiled.

When there are negative issues that are coming to them, how do they manage to face it?

“Hindi ho kami mga negative na tao. Masyado ho kaming nakakatawa.”

“Para nga kaming gumagawa ng comedy film kapag magkasama kami. Tawa lang kami nang tawa.”

“Actually, ine-enjoy lang namin. Kapag papunta kami kung paano namin ito haharapin, actually, wala kaming ganoon.”

Doesn’t she dwell with negative things?

“Hindi, so far naman, wala naman kaming nae-encounter na hindi maganda.”

There’s news that John Lloyd’s family love her. The American father of Angelica, who she met just recently, did he have a chance to meet John Lloyd already?

The actress answered, “Hindi pa po, pero actually, nagkita sila last year. Noong nag-tour kami ng Star Magic sa New York. “

“Pero siyempre, sobrang bilis lang naman na, ‘Hi, hello.’

“Tapos, ipinakilala ko po sila. Sila Bea [Alonzo], yung mga nandoon sa show.”

“Kapag ikinukuwento ko ito kay Daddy ngayon, medyo naaalala naman niya yung time na yun.”

According to Boy, He saw the post of Angelica on Instagram where in the actress is very proud of John Lloyd.

Angelica said, “Sobra! Nakaka-pressure ho.”

“Di ba, parang sa TV ko lang napapanood yun.”

“Kapag may pelikula siya, first day talaga, nakikipagsiksikan ako. Nanonood talaga ako.”

She added, “Kapag nakakaeksena ko siya sa Maging Sino Ka Man, nanginginig ako sa kaba na, ‘Naku, baka magkamali ako, nakakahiya naman sa kanya, ang galing-galing niya.’”

Rayver Cruz Denies The Rumor Breakup With Cristine Reyes

 

The break up rumor of Rayver Cruz and Cristine Reyes still spreads continuously.

The actor expressed his reaction, “Pang-ano na ‘yan… siguro pang-tenth na issue.”

“Ang masasabi ko lang tungkol sa mga ganyang issue, wala… tatawanan ko na lang.”

“Palagi na lang, pag iinterbyuhin mo ako, iinterbyuhin ako ng TV Patrol, ng The Buzz, ang tanong sa akin, ‘Hiwalay na raw?’”

“Siguro kasi, hindi kami nakikita sa Instagram—walang masyadong pictures.”

“Para sa akin, ganun naman yun… Pag kayo, paghihiwalayin kayo… Paulit-ulit na lang.”

“Two years na kami pero paulit-ulit yung issue.”

“Wala, tinatawanan na lang namin.”

GOING STRONG. The young actor assures that their relationship is good and they’re happy with each other.

“Oo naman, masaya kami. Hindi naman kami naapektuhan lalo na sa mga opinyon ng iba.”

“Siyempre, tsine-cherish namin yung mga moments namin, lalo na ngayon na magkakatrabaho na kami uli together, magiging busy kami parehas”

“May mga trabaho rin si AA [palayaw ni Cristine], may entry siyang ginagawa for MMFF [Metro Manila Film Festival].”

“Yun siguro, hindi naman puwede na magkasama kami pareho… basta alam namin na nandiyan kami para sa isa’t isa.”

The two are together on the upcoming primetime series of ABS-CBN, Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin.

HAPPY ENDING? With the past interviews to Cristine, she mentioned that she’s happy with Rayver.

However, the young actress accepts that in the future they might not end together.

Reaction of Rayver to this, “Oo naman, kasi hindi naman natin alam kung ano puwedeng mangyari sa future, di ba?”

“Basta, ayun nga, sabi ko, masaya kami na magkasama.”

“Hindi namin iniisip yung future… iniisip namin yung ngayon. Hindi namin iniisip ang future.”

“Kung kami, kami… e, di kami.”

“Kung hindi, wala tayong magagawa.”

“Lagi lang naman akong nandito para kay AA, alam naman niya yun.”

“Siyempre, lahat naman… basta nandito lang ako para sa kanya.”

 

Enrique Gil to Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla Fans: “Story lang ‘to, teleserye lang ‘to, so relax lang ho.”

 

 

“Story lang ‘to, teleserye lang ‘to, so relax lang ho.”

This is the statement of Enrique Gil to the fans of Daniel Padilla-Kathryn Bernardo love team.

Because right now, the focus of the story of ABS-CBN primetime series, Princess And I is between Jao(Enrique) and Mikay(Kathryn).

Enrique is glad even though the story of Princess And I is focusing more with him and Kathryn, He doesn’t receive much negative comments from KathNiel fans.Before this, the impact of the viewers of Kathryn and Daniel got stronger, which builds up fan base that is known as “KathNiel”.

“Yung story, medyo nagiging exciting na para sa amin. Masaya naman siya.”

“Siyempre, sa mga Jao-Mikay fans, masaya rin sila, sobra!”

“Sa mga Gino [ni Daniel] fans naman, basta follow the story, magiging okay din sila,” Enrique assures.

The Kapamilya young actor added, “Basta sa story na ito, fair naman sila sa mga characters.”

“May moments sina Mikay and Gino, may moment din sina Mikay and Jao.”

“Bounce-bounce lang yung effect, pabalik-balik lang ‘yon.”

Enrique also stated that the scene of the said TV series is getting intense.

He shared, “Sa mga eksena namin, nagle-level up ang emotions kasi.”

“Pataas nang pataas ang emotions namin ngayon, e, so medyo mainit kami ngayon—sina Mikay, Jao, and Gino.”

“Yung emotion namin, sobrang higher.”

 

CAREER GETTING BETTER. Like the warm welcome of their TV series viewers, Enrique didn’t expect that the run of his showbiz career is getting better in just four years.

Other than Princess And I, Enrique is busy with the shooting of 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival entry, The Strangers.

Also, He can often be seen in some TV commercials and print ads. Things that Enrique didn’t expect before to happen to him.

The 20-year-old Star Magic talent recalls, “Kasi kapag sinasabi sa akin, ‘O, may show ka.’ ‘O, sige, gagawin ko yung show.’ Ganun lang ako, e”

“Parang hindi ko iniisip na kailangan kong galingan ito para makilala, wala naman, e.”

“Kung ano ang iniisip mo sa eksena, yun ang ibibigay mo.”

Enrique is hoping that he could last longer in showbiz. But he admits that popularity isn’t permanent.

So in case, he said, “Kapag nakapag-ipon na, medyo relax muna ako at saka family business muna para may time ako sa family”

FAMILY OVER LOVELIFE.  Probably if Enrique has a request today, this is to have enough time to his family.

This is the reason why he doesn’t think of love life nowadays.

Enrique said, “Sabi nga ni Mama, ‘Mabuti ngang wala kang lovelife kasi wala ka ngang time para sa amin, sa iba pa kaya.’”

“So, parang, oo nga naman, iniisip ko, parang kawawa rin naman yung family ko.”

Enrique prefers to be single right now because he thinks time is hard for a relationship.

He said, “Kung boyfriend ka ng isang babae, siyempre, gusto mo rin naman na may oras ka para sa babae. Unfair sa babae kapag wala.”

“Boyfriend ka niya, so dapat nandun ka para sa kanya.”

 

Enchong Dee speaks up to the rumor of their break-up with Julia Montes

Following to the promo of Enchong Dee’s upcoming movie with Julia Montes is the rumor of their break up.

The young Kapamilya actor said, “Nakakakatawa kasi ayan na naman, pareho na naman ang sinasabi nila.”

“Nakakatawa kasi kung kailan tahimik…

“Siguro alam din kasi nila na magpo-promo kami ng The Strangers. Parang ano ba yun, idinidikit pa?”

The Stragers is an entry to 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival which starts on December 25.

Enchong continues, “Siguro, ako, ang masasabi ko lang, sana maging maganda ang turnout ng pelikula.”

“Pero sana hindi basehan ang personal na buhay kasi maayos talaga kami.

“Okay kami, sobrang okay kami. Gusto ko lang sabihin na I’m happy.”

Enchong shared on ASAP 2012 last Sunday, November 11 that Julia is in fact the one who organized for his 24th birthday celebration last November 5 in Los Angeles.

“Si Julia pa ang nag-surprise sa birthday ko sa L.A., hindi ko alam na kuwarto niya pala yun, tapos pagpasok ko, nandun na yung mga tao.”

“Alam niya favorite ko, spicy wings, tapos ang daming hot sauce, tapos siyempre birthday cake.”

“Ang design ng cake, isda, kasi mahilig akong mag-swim.”

To this Enchong’s statement, does this mean Julia and him actually together?

Before the rumor about breaking up, there’s no admission of their relationship from them.

He said, “Same pa rin, yun nga lang, nagkataon na tapos na kami sa The Strangers.

e siya, tapos mag-shoot siya ng movie niya with Coco [Martin], hindi na naman kami ulit nagkikita.”

“But we’re okay, we’re doing good.”

INA KAPATID ANAK. Meanwhile, Enchong is in a primetime series of ABS-CBN, Ina Kapatid Anak wherein he roles as Ethan.

The young actor is grateful to the warm welcome of viewers of their TV series.

He said, “Gusto kong magpasalamat kasi yung tao, kahit nagbago ng timeslot, hindi nila kami binitawan.”

“Dahil alam namin na maraming nanonood, mas aayusin namin bawat isa.”

“May pressure, di mawawala yun. Yung expectations, nasa tao naman yun.”

Enchong and Maja Salvador team up seems also a hit in spite of nothing special relationship going on with them.

Enchong said, “Siguro masuwerte lang din kas,i beyond that loveteam, may friendship din kasi talaga.”

“Mas magandang compliment sa amin yun na nakikita sa amin ang Margaux-Ethan more than Maja-Enchong.”

“Thankful ako na hindi na basehan ng isang TV rating or isang successful loveteam ang personal na buhay.”

Andi Eigenmann Will Act Opposite Gabby Concepcion, Iza Calzado, And Jake Cuenca In Upcoming Teleserye

It’s been a long time since Andi Eigenmann leaved the showbiz industry because of the very controversial pregnancy that she faced in her personal life.

The last teleserye of her (Andi) was the Minsan lang kita iibigin together with Coco Martin last year. And now this 2012 abs-cbn will air the new upcoming teleserye of Andi, together with Jake Cuenca, Gabby Concepcion and Iza Calzado entitled the television series “Kahit Puso’y sinugatan”.

Last May 07 this year Andy was interviewed by PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) about her character in this upcoming teleserye of her.

“After a long time nagbabalik teleserye ka. Anong pakiramdam mo ngayon sa pagbabalik mo?”

“Siyempre, sobrang sobrang sobrang sobrang excited ko na talaga. Matagal-tagal din akong naghintay. Alam kong everybody knows na eto lang po talaga yung hinihintay ko. Siyempre, ini enjoy ko ang pagiging nanay ko, I have Ellie with me and I spend my time with her, pero yung pagbabalik trabaho ko po ay para sa kanya rin, ayun kaya I’m excited.”

“Ano ang aabangan ng tao sa bagong role na gagampanan mo sa teleseryeng ito?”

“In a way, kaabang abang talaga yung role ko rito, kasi first time na kakaiba yung gagampanan ko ngayon dito kumpara sa ibang teleseryeng ginampanan ko. Ibang iba talaga ito, mas mature yung role ko rito, mas daring, mas sexy. Feeling ko sa teleseryeng ito, lalabas na talaga yung pagiging ‘woman’ ko rito. Like, yung age ko rito ay 21 years old na talaga, hindi yung parang pinababata pa yung role ko.”

“Ano ang pakiramdam mo na makakatrabaho mo sina Iza Calzado, Jake Cuenca at Gabby Concepcion?”

“Siyempre masaya po. Alam kong pagdating sa set, pagdating sa taping, magiging masaya yung taping namin na yun. Kasi maliit pa lang ako kilala na ako nina Direk Lauren Dyogi especially Direk Wenn Deramas. Inaalagaan pa niya [referring to Direk Wenn] ako nung bata pa ako pag may taping si mommy [referring to Jaclyn Jose]. Jake is a really really good friend of mine, medyo kakilala ko na rin si Ate Iza and Tito Gabby is a good friend of my Dad, so sobrang gaan, kasi feeling ko yung mga kasama ko rito tunay na Kapamilya or kaibigan ng pamilya ko.”

“Anong role mo sa teleseryeng ito?”

“Basically,yung karakter ko rito, isang bibong babae na medyo aggressive, daring, strong willed, isang ulila po ako at pulubi. Kasama ko si Ate Iza na itinuring ko na ring parang kapatid, pero nagkahiwalay po kami, napunta ako sa isang well off na pamilya, inampon po ako ni Tito Gabby. Nung nagkahiwalay kami ni Ate Iza, makikita n’yo rito yung selfishness ko rito, spoiled kasi parang nung bata nga ako na deprived sa kin yung pagmamahal.”

“Gaano ka daring ang karakter mo rito?”

“Hindi ko masabi sa ngayon, kasi di pa kami nagte taping, pero yun yung aabangan nating lahat.”

Ibig sabihin ba nito na tuloy tuloy na yung paggawa mo ng ganitong klaseng role–yung pagiging daring?

“I consider myself as an actress, di ko kailangan i-limit kung ano ang pwede kong gawin sa career ko, mas gusto ko yung iba ibang karakter at mga challenging roles. Gusto ko yung iba-ibang Andi yung ipapakita ko. Hindi naman ibig sabihin na nag daring na ako ay tuluy-tuloy na yun.”

Gerald Anderson : I’ve Improved, But I Have A Long Way To Go

Gerald Anderson is the main actor in the show “Budoy”. “Napakalaking stepping stone niyan para sa akin dahil mas nakilala na ako as an actor, instead of a leading man or part of a love team. I’m just really happy”, he said.

He admits that he felt pressured in playing the role as Budoy and doing an “advocacy-serye”, which he considers his breakthrough performance. He’s happy also because the TV drama helped him to improve his craft. “Naramdaman ko yung improvement pero mas marami at malayo pa ang gusto kong marating. I can’t call myself a good actor kasi ang dami ko pang gustong gawin”, he said.

The TV show “Budoys” will be end on Friday, March 8. “Mixed emotions kasi patapos na pero sobrang masaya rin kasi alam po namin na na-meet na namin yung goal na gusto naming mangyari bago mastart yung show, which is magbigay ng inspirasyon sa mga tao”, Gerald said.

Gerald 23rd birthday – March 7
Gerald celebrates his 23rd birthday with the foundations he supports, Cancer Warriors and Cottolengo Filipino. He’s been helping the foundation Cancer Warriors since he started his career in showbiz, while the Cottolengo Filipino is where he had an immersion for “Budoy.”

“I’m just happy na for 23 years, I was blessed by Papa God. Sana mas marami pang blessings para mas ma-share ko rin sa mga nangangailangan. Yun yung pinakamasarap na feeling. Sana marami pa kaming chances na magkasama,” Gerald said.

Sarah in his life

His friendship with Sarah Geronimo has become talk of the town these past weeks. Gerald surprised Sarah again in her Show “Sarah G Live” last Sunday, March 4, the pop princess sang “All of my Life” while they held hands.

Gerald said, “Na-surprise po talaga siya. Hindi po niya talaga alam ‘yon. Nag-decide ako na mag-surprise ako the day itself. Sobrang special ng Sunday na iyon for me”.

Gerald denied that they have a relationship. “Friends kami. Kasi masaya naman ako kung ano yung nararamdaman ko para sa kanya kapag magkasama kami. Okay na iyon. Hindi naman kailangang lagyan ng label. At least hindi promo-promo dahil wala naman kaming dapat i-promote. Pero we’re just enjoying each other’s company. Like I said, kung ano ‘yung inspirasyon or feelings na binibigay niya sa akin, ie-enjoy ko muna iyon,”Gerald said.

Gerald was happy right now the way Sarah inspires him and they want to enjoy the friendship they have now. They don’t want to rush everything between them.“Hindi naman kami nagmamadali. Katulad nga po ng sinabi ko, kung friendship lang ang makukuha ko, okay na okay sa akin iyon. Sapat na po ‘yung inspirasyon na binibigay niya sa akin. I’m very happy and I’m happy sa mga nangyayari sa kanya,” Gerald shared.
