After all the rumors that the GMA-7 star Carla Abella is set to switch network,  now it is confirmed that she is poised up and ready to be a new Kapamilya.

A source confirmed to Manila Bulletin Online Entertainment that Carla is without a doubt leaving her home studio. Her camp has negotiated for her to move to ABS-CBN, as her contract with GMA is about to expire this month.

Anne Curtis, “No-Show” at USTv Student’s Choice Kick-off Party

No Other Woman star, Anne Curtis was denied the chance greet fans at the 8th USTv Student Choice Kick-off Party held Thursday, November 10,2011.

Anne Curtis prepared a full song number of Adele’s “Someone Like You” for Thomasians which she revealed on twitter.

Anne Tweeted: “First time to sing it live and full song dapat! Haha. Oh well, maybe next year! It was nice seeing you guys kahit saglit!”

Anne also tweeted her dismay on GMA7 who prohibited her to go up the stage.

“Thomasians, sorry I had to leave na. I tried to at least get up on stage and say hi kahit 2 minutes lang but GMA staff didn’t want.”

“Thomasians, I was there on the left side of the stage & told them kahit din a ko kumanta babati Lang ng Hi and Hello but GMA Staff said no.”

GMA responded to Anne’s tweets saying that they were just following the programme sequence.

“We were simply sticking to the programme sequence provided by the organizers “-GMA7

GMA’s side of the story:

1. Prior to the event, network representatives had been briefed by the organizers/UST about the sequence of the programme. This was to be the basis for arranging our artists’ schedules and determining their call time for the event.

2. Based on the schedule, GMA artists were supposed to perform at 7 pm. Our talents were at the venue as early as 5 pm. Last-minute insertion of ABS-CBN’s Banana Split cast in the programme however further pushed back the schedule.

3. Shortly before GMA’s number, GMA representatives confirmed the programme sequence with organizers. We were told that the Kapuso artists would be next. GMA was not aware nor informed by the organizers in any prior meeting that Anne Curtis will be part of the program.

4. When the GMA artists were about to go on stage, Anne Curtis, her handler and a student organizer approached a GMA representative to ask if she could go on stage first.

However, GMA staff declined and instructed the floor director and production staff to please proceed with the programme sequence, as the Kapuso stars also had other schedules to go to, and by this time were already waiting for nearly three hours.

5. GMA later found out that Ms. Curtis had left the venue and had tweeted about the incident.

Anne Curtis, who was allegedly said to be 3 hours late from the scheduled call time for the performers, explained on tweeter that she didn’t arrive late as what GMA has stated.

She tweeted: Firstly, if you read my twitter timeline I didn’t arrive late at 8pm. I was asked by UST people to be there between 7-7:30 and they had told my Road Manager as soon as I get there it would be my turn.. If you want an exact time I was there at 7:10 according to driver. O diba? Join din ang driver ko sa drama. Haha. No, but seriously, they told me naman since TV5 people were performing already they opted to put me after TV5 artists & before the GMA artists.”

On the other hand, ABS-CBN released an official statement regarding the “No Show” issue of their contract actress at the Said event.

Last November 10 at the Kick-Off Party of the USTv Students’ Choice Awards, the aborted song number of Anne Curtis became a hot topic.

We would like to clarify the issues related to the incident at the USTv awards’ launch, where Anne was invited to perform. The call time for Anne was 7PM and she arrived on time. She was scheduled to sing at 7:30 PM but due to some reason, the program was delayed.

Because Anne had been waiting for quite some time, the organizers of USTv awards decided to put her spot number after TV5′s presentation and before GMA-7 artists’ number.

Unfortunately, she was not able to perform or even greet the crowd because a staff from GMA-7 stopped her. The organizers of the event, who should be the ones making the decisions for the program, failed to control the incident.

ABS-CBN understands that such delays and compromises occur during events like the USTv Awards Kick-Off Party. During such times, people involved at the event might just have to extend extra patience and consideration.”

Actress Andi Eigenmann has chosen the name “Eli” as nickname for her baby.

In an interview with Kris Aquino on ABS-CBN’s Kris TV, Andi said that Eli was going to be the nickname of her baby girl while “Gabrielle” will be the baby’s second name.

Andi said that the second name was given by her mother, Jaclyn Jose.

My mom named her Gabrielle, which will be her second name. I’m still thinking of the first name, but her nickname will be
Eli. So, we can call her Eli now even if the name is not yet final,
” said Eigenmann

Since siya naman ang grandmother and she’s my mom, why not give it to her. I let her give one of the names among the two kasi gusto ko two ang names niya (ng baby ko),” she added.

Gabrielle is the name of Eigenmann’s character, a woman in the military, in ABS-CBN’s defunct television series “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin.”

According to Baby Names World, a family website, Gabrielle came from a Hebrew word which means “God is my might.”
Eli, meanwhile, is said to mean “My God.”

Eigenmann, who is set to give birth next month, said she has not talked to the father of her child after she decided to keep the baby.
