“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.

Isa kasi si Ms. Gina sa nagturo sa amin sa pag-arte noong nasa StarStruck pa lang. Kaya doon ko nakita kung gaano siya kagaling at lahat ng itinuro niya sa amin ay nagagamit ko sa mga shows na nagawa ko na sa Kapuso network. Kaya noong malaman ko na siya ang gaganap na mother ko sa Hiram Na Puso, talagang natuwa ako at dream come true para sa akin. Tuwing may eksena nga kami ni Ms. Gina, talagang ginagalingan ko kasi ayokong mapahiya. Kahit na on the set, tinuturuan pa rin niya ako sa mga eksena.

Sa isang araw, mga tatlong putahe ang niluluto ko! Actually, nahirapan din siya kasi parang feeling niya, wala siyang kuwenta kasi ayoko siyang makita. Gusto ko magluto lang nang magluto, ayaw ko pa-istorbo!” she said.

Katrina said that she and Lawrence focus first in their baby. They did not talk about the wedding. “Hindi naman po namin kailangang i-rush. Like sabi nga po ng Papa ko, hindi porke’t may nangyaring ganyan, e, kailangan ma-pressure si Kris na pakasalan ako. Ako rin, ayoko muna kasi ibang usapan na po yung kasal. Siguro ‘pag dumating na yung time na talagang gusto na naming dalawa… na ready na kami. E, hindi pa po kami ready,” saad ng aktres.

Katrina due date was on September.

Katrina was not worried about her career and she’s happy what she have right now. “Actually, nagpaalam ako sa production na sana tanggalin na lang nila ako kasi baka hindi ko naman magampanan ang role na gusto nila.Like, baka hindi na ako makapagsuot ng sexy… siyempre magge-gain ako ng weight. Bawal pa ako magpuyat, kailangan kong alagaan ang sarili ko din. Baka hindi ko magampanan ang ibibigay nila sa akin na trabaho. Hindi naman nila ako pinayagan kasi kailangan nga po nila ako sa show. Willing naman po ako mag-stay kung sasabihin nila ang ganun. At least, maalagaan nila ako. Ang akin lang, gusto ko lang iparating sa kanila kung ano ang sitwasyon ko,” Katrina said.

After she finished her drama series she will be having a vacation in Palawan in two to three months. Katrina wants that her baby was a girl but whatever God will give to them they will accept it with all their heart.

Angel Locsin Reacts About The Comments Of Arnold Clavio’s On Azkals Regarding Not Being Pure Pinoy’s

GMA-7 broadcaster Arnold Clavio comments on sexual harassment complaint for the two members of Philippine Football Team (Azkals), Lexton Moy and Angel Guirado and it became a hot issue on different social networking sites.

Cristy was the match commissioner of Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). When she had a mandatory team checks on Azkals team last February 28, Moy said to her “must be a B cup”.

But based on the team manager of Azkals who is Dan Palami, maybe Cristy was having a misinterpretation on what Moy said. “They [players] were talking among themselves. There was a comment made by Denis Wolf about the flatness of Carli’s [De Murga] chest, to which Lexton Moy replied, ‘Just because you are Cup B you say that to Carli,’ or something to that effect. Denis and Carli even hugged each other. It was all a joke,” Palami said.

Cristy complaint also about Guirado wearing underwear in front of her.

On the morning show of GMA-7 Unang Hirit last Tuesday March 13, Arnold Clavio gave his opinion about this issue. “Talagang aral na sa inyo ‘yan. Ang yayabang n’yo. Akala n’yo porke’t dinadagsa kayo ng mga fan, ang gaguwapo n’yo, e. Parang God’s gift to women. E, alam ng lahat… ikinukuwento nga ni Cristina, lahat ginawa para ipaalam na may babaeng papasok sa locker, ilang katok nga sila, e. E, malapit na yung match, e. Kailangan ma-check na yung dalawang koponan. Dahil nauna yung Philippine Team bago yung Malaysia na team. Ngayon, nag-sorry para dun sa isa nilang kasamahan. Saan ka nakakita nga Azkals na may suso? Wala naman akong ma… Anong Cup B, maybe a Cup B, sa isa nilang kasama. Sana nag-sorry, sorry na lang talaga.” Arnold said.

News Anchor Arnold Clavio gave a comment also about having a difference culture of most of Azkals member. Moy was a pure Pinoy but he grown up in New York, USA and Guirado was a Filipino-Spanish who grown up in Spain and he can’t talk Tagalog and English

Arnold said, “Hindi ko kayo kakultura. Kasi wala dito [sabay turo sa kanyang puso] at wala dito [sabay turo sa kanyang ulo]. Hindi naman kayo Filipino. Nagpapanggap lang kayong kayumanggi. Hindi kayo dito lumaki, mahirap yun. Insensitive.”

But in behalf of this Arnold congratulate the Azkals team, they currently having their match on AFC Challenge Cup sa Kathmandu, Nepal. Arnold said, “Congratulations, hiwalay naman ito [ang sexual harassment complaint] sa kanilang ginagawang pakikipaglaban. So, good luck din sa inyong susunod na laban. Sana mapunta kayo sa Final 4 ha—na bihira pong narating ng Pilipinas sa matagal na panahon, ngayon lang.”

March 14, yesterday Angel Locsin posted on Twitter regarding on Arnold Clavio’s opinions about Azkals. She is the rumored girlfriend of Phil Younghusband, one of the members of Azkals.

Angel posted, I think arnold clavio’s a good person. But this time, sobrang foul lang. That’s his opinion. This is mine. Madali lang sumira ng reputasyon, mahirap ibalik. Konting sensitivity lang sana.”

Angel answered one of the Twitter user,”hindi naman po isang tao lang ang azkals. At hindi naman po yung issue yung pagiging pinoy nila. Unfair po yun.”
