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.”

Vice Ganda vs. Anne Curtis

Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda has been rising in fame with their successful shows and movies. The two are referred to as “unkabogable” or unbeatable in the industry. Anne’s recent movie, “No other Woman”, has been a box-office hit grossing over P258 million.

Vice Ganda has earned his title as “unkagogable”, for his successful TV shows “Showtime” and “Gandang Gabi Vice”. His sold out concerts at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum and his box-office hit movie “Petrang Kabayo” all contributed to his fame.

Vice has an up and coming show “The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin” which will open nationwide on Oct. 26, 2011.

The two co-hosts has been pitted against each other on who will be the reigning “unkabogable” queen.

Vice in a recent interview said, “Huwag naman ganung pressure. Feeling ko rin magiging hit ang pelikulang ito pero ayaw ko ring i-pressure ang sarili ko na dapat matalo ko ang movie ni Anne.”

Vice however is more confident that his new movie is better than his debut movie “Petrang Kabayo”. What he is sure of is that he makes sure that his present projects are better than the last.

“I just live by the day,” he confessed. “What I have at the moment I make sure na papagandahin ko yung pagkakataon na yun. Unconceivable lahat po ito kasi ibinigay lang. Sa next project ko, pagsasama-samahin namin ang efforts and talents and lahat siguro ng mga ginawa namin sa ‘Petrang Kabayo’ and ‘Praybeyt Benjamin,’ gagawin namin sa next movie ko.”

Whether or not Vice beats Anne “Bisyosa” Curtis for the “unkabogable box-office queen,” he is already declared himself a winner when he said, “I’m very proud of this movie!”

“Siyempre, na-sad din kami because it was given that kind of publicity. But at the same time nai-intindihan naman din namin ‘yung point nila,” she added.

“I do not smoke, so I do not promote smoking, just to be clear also,” she said.

Cristine Reyes states no plans of becoming an ‘Other Woman’, confronts rumors about moving to TV5

The actress Cristine Reyes said she has no plans of becoming an ‘other woman’ just to be with the man she loves. In an interview with PEP.ph during the presscon of ‘No Other Woman’ at the Dolphy Theater in ABS-CBN compound yesterday, Cristine said,

“Sa tingin ko, ayokong gawin yun na maghahabol ako sa lalaki, ayokong ipilit yung sarili ko sa taong ayaw na sa akin. Kasi parang tatapakan ko lang yung sarili ko. Marami namang iba diyan na puwede akong mahalin.”

As to what she will do if ever the situation comes out in real life, the actress uttered the following statement.

“Pag nalaman ko yung guy na may iba siya, siguro papapiliin ko siya kung sino sa aming dalawa. Kung pipiliin niya yung isa, okay lang. It means hindi siya para sa akin. Kung ako yung pipiliin niya, kailangan na niyang hiwalayan yung isa.”

Cristine Reyes along with Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsay starred the sexy film ‘No Other Woman’ produced by Star Cinema and Viva Films and directed by Ruel Bayani. The film is showing on September 28 in cinemas nationwide.

The film focuses on the challenges and problems brought about by marital infidelity. The story revolves on three main characters, the couple, Charmain dela Costa-Escaler (Cristine) and Ram Escaler (Derek), and the other woman, Kara Zalderiaga (Anne).

With regards to the rumors spreading that she has plans of transferring to another network channel, TV5, Cristine exclaimed, “Hindi, a! Naririnig ko, pero hindi ko alam kung merong ganung negotiation. Nakarating kasi siya sa akin hindi through Viva kundi through tweets.”

Cristine also clarified this issue.

“Siguro magkakaroon muna ng discussion. Pero so far naman, I’m happy sa ABS-CBN. Kung meron man pong ganung offer (from TV5), hindi ko po alam. If ever, mabait naman po ang Viva, e, kung saan mas masaya yung alaga nila, doon sila. Siyempre mahirap namang magtrabaho kung alam mong ayaw mong magtrabaho kung saan ka lilipat,” she said.

Actress and TV host Anne Curtis is the cover girl of the June 2010 issue of ABS-CBN Publishing’s Metro magazine Philippines.

She is one of the hosts of Showtime together with Vhong Navarro. She has 3 siblings, a sister (Jasmine) and a brother (Thomas) who are currently living in Australia with her mother, and their baby Clare, who died at only four-months-old because of a viral infection that severely affected the baby’s heart. At age 13, they had their vacation in the Philippines but it later became permanent through Anne’s discovery by a talent manager while eating at a fast food chain with her dad and her mom in 1997.

Anne Curtis’s camp appeals to the public to “stop posting the photos and distributing the same”

Anne Curtis SwimsuitKumalat na sa Internet ang larawan ng swimsuit malfunction ng actress-TV host na si Anne Curtis.

Kuha ito habang sumasayaw si Anne sa opening number para sa summer special ng ASAP XV last Sunday, March 21, sa Boracay. Ang naturang segment ay bahagi ng taped episode ng nasabing variety show ng ABS-CBN na ipalalabas sa susunod na Linggo, March 28.

Sam Milby rushed to cover Anne Curtis up, while Anne Curtis burst into tears when she noticed her right breast was exposed after her wardrobe malfunction. The crowd who came to see ASAP XV were able to see Anne’s exposed breast for approximately ten seconds. Unfortunately for those who weren’t there, the said production number of Anne and Sam had to be done again for the camera, sans the swimsuit malfunction of course.

Nakikiusap ang kampo ni Anne na tigilan na ang pagpapakalat ng mga larawan kung saan nagkadiperensiya and suot niyang pang-itaas na dahilan upnag makita ang kanyang kanang dibdib. Ang insedente ay tumagal ng halos sampung segundo, ikinasam ng loob ni Anne na hindi agad napigilan ang insidente.

Umaapila ang Kampo ng “Babe, I love You” star na itigil na ang iresponsableng pagpapakalat ng mga litrato at bigyan naman daw sya ng konting respeto at igalang ang privacy.

Sam Milby is aware that ex-girlfriend Anne Curtis is exclusively dating a non-showbiz guy

samMay ginagawang pelikula ngayon ang actor-singer na si Sam Milby kasama ang kanyang ex-girlfriend na si Anne Curtis, ito ay ang Babe I Love You para sa Star Cinema at Viva Films.
First time na magsasama at magkakapareha nina Sam at Anne sa pelikula.

Kuwento ni Sam, “We’re shooting every day kasi may playdate na kami. April 3 ang showing ng movie namin which is Black Saturday. The last three weeks, it’s been pretty hectic na napupuyat ako. Pero I’m really enjoying it naman. Ang ganda ng story.”

Nakausap ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Sam last February 21 sa event ng Dermablend, kung saan isa si Sam sa mga endorser. Ang event ay ginanap sa Hypermarket sa Quezon Avenue.

May kissing scene ba sila ni Anne sa peikula?

“Ano sa tingin ninyo?”natatawang balik-itanong ni Sam sa PEP. “Meron naman. Siyempre meron.”

Madalas ngayong nagkikita sina Sam at Anne dahil sa pelikulang ginagawa nila. Hindi kaya nanunumbalik ang feelings ni Sam kay Anne?

“Sometimes you know when we’re on the set, parang bumabalik yung mga dating…parang…nami-miss ko na parang you know we’re being kulit,” pautal-utal na sagot ni Sam.

Dagdag niya, “You know kasi she was… I mean I’ve been single since then. So a lot of times when you’re, you know, still single, you remember whatever happened in your last relationship. You know what I mean? So parang it reminds me of the good times that we had when we’re together.”

May balitang may dini-date daw ngayon si Anne na isang non-showbiz guy. Matagal na raw naman itong alam ni Sam.

“They’ve been friends for a long time,” sabi niya. “The same guy that she dated last year, exclusively dating. She admitted she’s exclusively dating. I don’t know really about her personal life so much. I mean if she’s dating somebody, I didn’t ask her. But ako, if she’s dating him again and they’re together and if she’s happy, then I’m happy for her.”

Hindi ba naman siya nakakaramdam ng selos?

“After we broke up, I heard them dating, medyo ano…nagseselos ako. But that was long time ago,” sagot ni Sam.

Nabalita rin noon na may silent war sila ni Anne. How true?

“Not true,” tanggi ni Sam. “If you guys wanna come to the set and see how we are, you’ll see na talagang were happy, we’re very makulit pa rin. You know, we’re enjoying doing the movie, we’re friends, and we’re just having fun doing the movie. You come to the set, you’ll see naman.”

Sa tingin ba niya may posibilidad pa na magkabalikan sila ni Anne?

“Kasi ako, you can’t plan what’s gonna happen. You don’t know what’s gonna happen. Ako, like I said, my doors are open. If something ever happens, you know… I believe in destiny. I believe if you’re really meant for each other, you’ll be together,” saad ni Sam.
