Paolo Ballesteros in Getting His Daughter form His Mother-in-law

TV host and actor Paolo Ballesteros is obstinate in getting supervision of his daugter Keira Claire from his mother-in-law. “Yung sabi mo na sa korte daw kami maghaharap… As much as gusto namin na ‘wag nang umabot sa gano’n, wala kaming choice. Lahat gagawin namin para makuha namin ang anak namin,” Paolo said in between cries on Showbiz Central last August 28. It is also reported that Kaye, Paolo’s ex-girlfriend and mom of baby Keira, was left with no choice but to give to her mom the custody of their baby because she had to leave for the US to work.

Baby Keira Claire was born on Nov. 29, 2008 and baptized on February 2009 she has been staying with Kaye’s mom in Baguio, since then.

Actually, Paolo’s dilemma sort of went public when his absence from the show in Eat Bulaga, Juan for All, All for Juan. All was the subject of Wally Bayola and Jose Manalo’s jokes last week.  “May event sa Baguio. Parang meron siyang isang challenge,” Jose said in explanation of Paolo’s absence in their segment.

Last August 25, the staff of Showbiz Central went to the Department of Social Welfare and Development in Baguio, then to the City Social Welfare Development Office and they were able to confirm that Paolo asked help from the institutions to get custody of his daugther from his mother-in-law. “Kasi nag-usap na kami ni Kaye, ‘yung mommy ni Keira, na it’s about time na kuhanin na namin siya from her mom, sa lola. Nakikiusap kami doon sa lola na ‘yun nga baka puwede na namin siyang kunin kasi plano na namin na magsama-sama kami,” Paolo shared. He also added, “ang balak namin ni Kaye is sama-sama kaming mabi-birthday, sabay. Magkakasama sana kami. Weekend pupunta kami diyan. Hindi na siya nagre-reply. Two months ko siyang ini-email, tinetext. ‘Mommy, punta kami ‘dyan…’ ‘Mommy paakyat na kami d’yan.’ Hindi kami pinapasok. ‘Yun nga nadatnan namin, naka-padlock na gate.” He continues, “Actually nahiram ko lang siya once,” the TV host said while crying. “The whole time talaga na nagpupunta kami dito, ‘pag dinadalaw namin siya, hirap na hirap talaga kaming hiramin siya. Parang sa loob namin, ‘sige hiramin mo na ‘yung anak mo,’ ganyan.”

Paolo’s family is longing for his daughter very much, but they know that seeing her is quite impossible. “Yung sila mama, ‘yung mga kapatid ko, parang sila, pinipilit nila ako na hiramin ko si Keira sa lola. Ako naman kasi, alam ko na hindi ipapahiram. So parang inuunahan ko sila na okay lang ’yan. Ipapahiram din sa atin ‘yan. Naawa ako sa mga kapatid ko kasi pauwi na kami, iyak nang iyak.” Paolo was so hurt knowing that when her sister visited baby Keira in Baguio, her mother-in-law did not allow her inside her house. “Ang dala-dala lang naman ng kapatid ko parang dalawang blouse at saka doughnut, pasalubong,” He said. “Para kasing ang sakit-sakit sa akin na ako ‘yung tatay, hindi ko naman tinakwil ‘yung anak ko, hindi naman siguro ako nagkulang, ako pa ‘yung nakikiusap  na puwede bang hiramin namin ‘yung anak ko.”

Paolo tried to look for the help of the authorities but their efforts proved to be useless. “Pagpunta namin kasama namin ang mga pulis. Gano’n pa rin, naka-lock. Hindi naman kami puwedeng mag-force entry or what.” He said. The actor-host is confused over his mother-in-law’s behavior. “Ayaw ibigay sa tatay, ayaw ibigay sa nanay ‘yung anak namin. Nakikipag-usap  naman kami nang maayos. Gusto kong malaman, ano ba ang pinaglalaban niya.”

The news staff went to the house of Paolo’s mother-in-law three times but according to the helper and security guard, they do not know where the mother-in-law and baby Keira is.

Paolo publicly appealed with tears in his eyes to his mother-in-law. “Ang ipakikiusap lang namin kay Mommy Cora, sana lang ‘wag mong sugatan ‘yung utak, ‘yung damdamin ng anak ko… kahit na two years old pa lang siya.” He repeats his concern for his child whom he’s not seen for so long. “Kung mahal mo si Keira, hindi lang po kayo, si Kaye, ‘yung nanay niya, ako, ‘yung pamilya ko, lahat po tayo concerned sa bata.” And to baby Keira, this is what the TV host promised: “Tandaan mo lagi  kahit na ano’ng mangyari, mahal na mahal ka namin.”

KC Conception and Piolo Pascual’s Break Up

Piolo Pascual - KC Conception

KC Concepcion and Piolo Pascual’s relationship is allegedly may come to an end. The rumored breakup began circulating early this week despite KC sharing on The Buzz last Sunday about their 10th monthsary. This rumors or recent report which is fast becoming the latest talks in tabloids, blogs and several networking sites was slightly confirmed by KC’s mother Sharon Cuneta in her interview last August 24, 2011 at TV Patrol World. Megastar said she’s not free to talk about what her daughter is going through with her love life. But then she addressed her concerns to KC because she said she couldn’t help speaking her mind.

“Kristina, mama’s here. Don’t forget you’re my daughter. We love you. We went through so much when you were little. You don’t have to go through it yourself,” megastar said. Then she continued, “Uulitin ko sinabi ng Daddy ko noon: Kahit metro aide ang maging asawa niya basta siya yung mahal na mahal, yung alagang-alaga. Kasi, ‘di ko pinalaki ‘yan para i-take for granted lang at balewalain.”

This news remains just a rumor as no confirmation yet coming from KC and Piolo themselves. However, KC’s Twitter posting yesterday would hint about something (that she and Piolo have already broken up?). She posted: “when things go beyond our Understanding, we can choose to Accept everything – just as they are..! because Faith steps in:) no regrets …:)”

Pep.com: When PEP asked a source, who is close to both Piolo and KC, about the rumored problem of the couple, we got this reply through text: ”May tampuhan but nothing serious. Normal lang naman for real relationships, di ba? They’ve been through worse than this. By now, baka nga bati na.” Contrary to the popular speculations, the source swears that “the two are still very much on up to this minute. In fact, KC even greeted Piolo last Sunday on air on The Buzz, saying ‘happy monthsary.’ “No relationship is perfect. But as long as both remain committed to make it work, there is enough reason to believe that they would celebrate their first anniversary as a couple on October 21st. “Of course, we don’t expect Piolo to comment on the issue out of respect to KC and her mom, whom he puts in high regard.”

It’s depressing to know if it’s true that they already broke up ‘coz they’re a beautiful couple and they seem perfect for each other. Piolo and KC started dating while working for the teleserye “Lovers in Paris” in 2009 and Earlier this year, Piolo admitted on national television that he and KC has been a couple since October 2010. And KC herself testified last Sunday on her showbiz talk show The Buzz that she and Piolo have been going out for 10 months.

Public reacts about Georgina Wilson’s controversial “Paris” tweet

Georgina Wilson

The celebrity-model Georgina Wilson got various reactions for her controversial tweet about Paris Hilton’s rumored courtesy call to President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III.

It was August 14 when Georgina posted in her twitter account the following statement: “why is PNOY taking time out of his “busy” schedule to meet with Paris Hilton tomorrow. So shameful that he doesn’t have better things to do.”

The said tweet was followed by numerous reactions from Filipino Twitter users.

“Don’t be such a hater, Georgina Wilson! Paris Hilton is waaaaaay better than youuuu,” posted by Charlene Dacara.

“The only reason why Georgina Wilson has strong opinions re Paris is because she doesn’t have the opportunity to meet her,” posted by Madox Llaguno.

Moreover, a PEPster named “jjjjjjjjjj” also shared his sentiments regarding this issue, “dapat magpatingin si georgina wilson sa doctor apectado sya masyado ng pag dadting ni paris hilton sa bansa.,,ang laki ng problema ng georgina na yan.”

However, despite the bad reactions she had received, the TV host-VJ explained her side hours after her controversial tweet. In her twitter account she posted, “I dnt mean to offend anyone or be negative I jst think that Paris Hilton isnt important enough for a president to meet up with.night guys :) .”

Yesterday, August 15, Georgina posted another positive Twitter message saying, “morning everyone! :) glad my tweet yesterday evoked such strong feelings, both positive and negative. means we have opinions and we care :)

Also, the Deputy Presidential Spokeperson Abigail Valte released a statement about Paris’ rumored courtesy call to the president.

“Sa amin pong pagkakaalam, wala po. Wala pong naibibigay na advice sa amin. However, we are coordinating with the President’s private office kung sakali pong mayroon talagang courtesy call,” Valte said in a dzRB interview last Monday.

On the other hand, Paris Hilton stays in the country for five days and she is in communication with a local real estate company regarding about the company’s property design.

JM de Guzman’s Carried Away

The first screening of JM de Guzman shows his great skills in acting in the teleserye Mula sa Puso where he plays the role of Gabriel. It was 13 years ago when JM first tried to show in showbiz but only this time when he got good breaks. If the projects of JM will continue to grow, it is predicted that he will be recognized as the best actor in his generation.

In the interview of PEP.ph to JM de Guzman in his taping with the show Mula sa Puso which is about to end, Pep asked him if what would be his next project. He said, “Sa ngayon, wala pa akong naririnig na next project ko. Pero ang paniniwala ko naman sa buhay. Ayokong mag-expect. Ang gusto ko lagi ay mag-hope for the best. Sa susunod kong projects, kung genre at kung sinuman, sana sa genre na di ko pa nasusubukan. Siguro yung pagiging kontrabida sa soap, open ako dun bilang aktor.  Gusto ko lahat masubukan ko. Sa leading lady naman, kahit sino na hindi ko pa nakakatrabaho. Kasi, kahit sinong tao, may iba’t iba kang matututunan sa kanila.” The Mula sa Puso is about to end and JM feels happy but at the same time sad. “Malungkot na masaya. Kasi para na rin kaming pamilya sa set. Masaya kasi ito ‘yung first [big] break na ibinigay sa akin. Mami-miss ko ‘yung araw-araw kaming magkakasama sa show. Kasi, from the director, cast, isang pamilya ang turingan namin dito. Saka marami akong natutunan dito. Unang-una na yung professionalism at disiplina. At laging relaxed lang sa lahat. Pag hindi mo makuha sa una, makukuha mo din eventually.”

Mula sa Puso is one of the most successful serye of ABS-CBN. JM admit that he feels pressure and nervous since the beginning of the serye until now that it is about to end. “Mayroon pa rin kaba, siyempre hindi mawawala yun. Pag nawala kasi ang kaba, delikado yun. Kami, dito [sa pag-arte] na lang namin binubuhos yung nararamdaman naming pressure. Kasi, kung masyado kang nag-iisip, maguguluhan ka.” He said.

Some said that the loveteam of JM to Lauren Young in Mula sa Puso would be real. But according to JM their relationship is just purely professional. “Okay ang samahan namin. Kung iga-graph ko from the beginning, masasabi ko, ang dami naming nagawa together for the show. Siguro, kasi mas inisip namin yung trabaho. Parehas kami na first big roles ito na binigay sa amin. So, di pa namin kayang isipin ang lovelife. Maganda naman si Lauren, pero hanggang friendship lang talaga.”

JM was linked to Jessy Mediola before and he admits that he likes Jessy. But JM de Guzman said with the news about Jessy Mendiola being linked to an Azkal player: “Nagsabi ako na nagagandahan ako sa kanya and I like her. Pero, hanggang dun lang. I can say na wala namang nangyari to begin with kaya walang dapat isipin.”

JM De Guzman has released the music video for his debut single Carried Away. “Carried Away” is JM De Guzman‘s carrier single for his newly-released self-titled album from Ivory music. It’s a 12-track album, ten covers and two of which he personally wrote, he shared. “People can expect to hear chill-type of songs here.”

Enchong Dee in Maria la del Barrio

ABS-CBN has bought the rights of the popular telenovela which was originally starred by the Mexican superstar Thalia of the MariMar. The local version of Maria La del Barrio will be portrayed by Erich Gonzales. And EnRich will not be complete if there’s no Enchong. Playing the part of the sexy hunk Luis Fernando in the telenovela is Enchong Dee.

The synopsis of the upcoming soap on ABS-CBN is María Hernandez (Erich Gonzales) is a naíve girl who dreams of a Prince Charming in her life. When she meets Luis Fernando Dela Vega (Enchong Dee), she thought she already met her Prince Charming. But when she sees him with another girl, Soraya Montenegro (Paw Diaz), she gets hurt and seeks revenge as she transforms into a rich, gorgeous woman and becomes the girlfriend of Luis Fernando’s younger brother, Vladimir Dela Vega (Inno Martin).

In the teaser of their show, it is very obvious that Enchong and Erich have multiple kissing scenes. In an interview of PEP with Enchong Dee, He said that he was also surprised by his multiple kissing scenes with Erich. He said, “Oo, nga. Di ko nga alam. Sabi ko nga, ‘Totoo ba yun?’” according to him this telenovela change both him and Erich’ role into a matured one. “Oo, nga, e. Biglaan [ang pagbinata], Di ko nga alam, ang dami na palang kissing scenes na nangyayari.” And when he was asked how many times they kissed, he said, “Actually, di ko nabilang. Kasi, kumbaga… kasi per script matagal yung time frame. So, di ko alam. Parang kissing scene. Kissing scene. Yun pala no’n binuo na, ang dami na pala. May [halikan sa] sampayan. May [halikan sa] kitchen. Gano’n.”

And according to Enchong, there’s no one would be jealous with them because the show is just only their work.

But according to pinoyhotnews.com it’s not for kids to watch ‘Maria La del Barrio’ with Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee because of kissing scenes. Not only that, there are also hot scenes that obviously not suitable for them. Anyway, what’s new with Mexican inspired TV series? That’s the way it is. Besides, it’s a Philippine remake by ABS-CBN from 90’s Mexican TV novel ‘Maria La del Barrio.’ We considered Erich and Enchong are both now a grown-up artist and hoping more mature roles in the future.

Maria La del Barrio will start on August 15, 2011 at ABS-CBN primetime show.

Sam pinto doesn’t deserve to be No.1 in FHM 100 Sexiest?

Last July 14, 2011 at the World Trade Center, The FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World’s victory party had been successful. Many sexy models and list of actresses ramp at the long runway with a Burlesque theme.

Ex-PBB housemate, Sam Pinto is said to be the number one in the poll of FHM. Sam looks blooming and very happy while ramping on the stage. From a far 32nd in 2010, Sam made a huge jump straight to the top spot this year courtesy of text, print and online votes. Pinto consistently dominated the list’s unofficial tally in its final weeks.

For Sam, sexy goes beyond merely having a curvy figure.

A lot of people think being sexy is physical: having big boobs, big butt, curvy. But for me, it’s not just that. You can be sexy by being confident, being yourself, being happy for who you are,” Sam said.

Sam Pinto is grateful to all who supported her in grabbing the FHM plum.

Sa lahat talaga ng tao na nag-support, grabe. Grabe. Sobrang… para sa kanila ‘to,” she said.

Relating to the manner by which she keeps herself fit, Sam mentioned swimming, boxing and pole dancing among other activities that she has taken up.

Well that pole dancing seems very sexy, no, but it’s not bastos. It’s also a form of exercise since it’s more on you losing your body weight,” she shared.

Sam added that among her body parts, she considers her eyes the sexiest because “very seductive at classy raw kasi ito at kayang-kaya niyang mang-akit ng tao sa katitingin kung nanaisin.

However according to some reports, some people said that Sam doesn’t deserve to be the number one. Some fans of Angel Locsin and Marian Rivera expressed dismay with the result of FHM’ sexiest Women in this year because their idol didn’t make it to number one spot. Marian Rivera is the second sexiest women while Angel Locsin is the third.

There are people doubting with the result of the poll but still there are people who are convinced with the result. According to convinced people, it is not good that every year just Angel Locsin and Marian Rivera were the winners. It is more exciting if some sexy artist had a chance to win for a change.

Mark Gil’s side regarding the father of Andi’s unborn child.

Two weeks has past when Jaclyn Jose confirmed the pregnancy of her daughter Andi Eigenmann. But after the said confirmation, there still many speculations of who is the real father of the unborn child of the young actress. Jaclyn Jose define that the father is the first boyfriend of Andi. Two names are usually being alleged, Jake Ejercito and Albie Casiño. Jake Ejercito decline that he is the first boyfriend of Andi. But on Albie’s side, her mother said that Albie also is not the first boyfriend of Andi, and there is no problem if her son is the father of the child Andi is bearing but there should be a DNA test.

At the back of the story, Mark Gil, the father of Andi, remain silent with the issue. But in the article that has been showed by Dolly Ann Carvajal in inquirer.net last July 6, 2011, Mark Gil did not hamper his feelings with what is going through with his daughter.

He said: “The father will remain unknown! Di na mahalaga yun. Maraming tatayong ama sa apo ko, lalo na ako. I wouldn’t wish my grandchild to [be around] a wimpy father who is still breast-fed by his mother.”

The statement of Mark Gil with the issue to the pain that cause pregnancy to his daughter was:

“Masakit sa kahit sinong babae na ginulpi at binuntis at tinalikuran, tapos papalabasin pa na si Andi ang maraming boyfriend. Sobra na yun. At may DNA test pa na hinihingi. Such a hypocrite and pathetic animal!”

Like Andi, Mark also clarifies that Jake Ejercito is not the father of the unborn child of his daughter. In fact, Mark said that jake is the “Knight in shining armor” of his daughter. Jake is a very refined kid and their family likes him a lot. Jake has never left Andi’s side in spite of her situation. And Mark also believes that Andi’s career will not be affected even if Andi will be out of showbiz for the mean time.

Mark said that he sees the situation as a “beautiful thing” and that is not a bad situation for Andi. And she still has a long way to go in her career. Mark Gil is still confident that Andi will still always stand strong for who she is.

Manny Pacquiao ang “Ninong ng Bayan”

July 16, 2011, Saturday night at AFP Theater is the start of the newest game show of GMA-7 entitled Manny Many Prices. The host of the said show is none other than the Pambansang Kamao ng Pilipinas and Sarangani congressman, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao. He is also one of those who think of the title’s concept and also the co-producer of his own show.

According to Manny, this is his long dream show where he can give help to his fellow people.

He said: “Masaya ako na makakapagbigay tulong tayo sa marami nating kababayan. Ang sa akin lang naman ay makatulong din tayo. Sa akin, walang personalan sa ibang show. Para sa akin, bilang pagbibigay kasiyahan, at the same time, tutulong sa mga tao at maipaabot sa kanila ang puso ko na gusto ko silang matulungan. At salamat sa mga bossing, si Boss [Jimmy] Duavit, Atty. [Felipe] Gozon, Ma’am Wilma [Galvante], at sa lahat po ng mga artista ng GMA-7, Kapuso, maraming salamat na binigyan tayo ng pagkakataon na nabigyan tayo ng ganitong show, at ito po ay para sa inyong lahat.”

In Manny Pacquiao’s interview, you can see his excitement when he is discussing his show.

Noon pa, excited na ako na masimulan ang Manny Many Prizes at ako mismo ang pumili. Maraming pinagpilian na title at ako mismo ang pumili ng title na ‘Si Manny, maraming tulong sa ating mga kababayan.’”

This is the successor of his former show with Marian Rivera, Show Me Da Manny.

He said: “Matagal ko nang pangarap na ganitong show. Nakakatulong tayo sa kapwa. Masaya dahil nangyari na nga itong show na pangarap ko at pangarap din ng mga tao na matulungan sila,”

They said, the show really fits Manny because even off-cam, he give games and big prizes to his staffs. In fact, before the press conference, Manny shares some cash prizes to his motorcade team. That’s why they called Manny as their “Ninong ng Bayan”.

Manny said: “Patikim pa lang sa kanila ang pamimigay natin ng cash,” sabi naman niya. Hindi lang yun, pag start natin ng first episode ngayong July 16, marami tayong ipamimigay.”

Manny did not reject that few of his co-stars like Paolo Contis, Onyok Velasco, at Gladys Guevarra is his handpicked.

He said: “Nag-suggest po ako kila Ma’am Wilma at okay naman sa kanila ang nai-suggest ko. Sila Onyok, Paolo, Gladys, gusto ko kasi barkada ko na. Hindi na ako masyadong maiilang sa kanila.”

Beside Onyok, Paolo, and Gladys. Rhian Ramos and Izabelle Daza were also included in the show Manny Many Prizes.

According to Manny there are no problem regarding with his show in case he has a fight or if he needs training.

“Wala namang problema yun dahil kailangan nating i-maximize ang time natin, Kailangan lang ng time management sa show na ‘to. Kailangan na ako talaga ang nandito palagi sa show na ito dahil ako mismo ang mamimigay ng cash prizes and also house and lot.” He said.

This November, Manny is expected to fight with Manuel Marquez for the third time. And September is the start of his training.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. expressed his feelings that he is ready for his next fight. But according to Manny: “Pagdating siguro ng panahon, hindi ngayon. May laban din siya. May laban din ako. Baka next year, matuloy.”

Manny is always supported by his loving wife, Jinkie Pacquiao especially to his upcoming Show. He said: “Suportado naman niya ako dahil ito’y tulong para sa ating mga kababayan at maganda naman itong ginagawa natin.”

Manny’s four children are still young but as early as now, Manny instill his children to be helpful to their fellowmen. He said: “Kung ang mga anak namin, kapag bata kasi paunti-unting pangaralan sa mga bagay-bagay. Kailangan paunti-unti hanggang sa nagkaka-edad at ipangaral sa kanila ang tama at pagiging makatao, mapagmahal sa kapwa. Yun ang kailangan. Siyempre, sa Panginoon din, importante sa Panginoon din.” Manny also believe to living by example. “Siyempre kung sa paglaki ng mga anak ko, barumbado, hindi naman ang mga anak ko ang may kasalanan no’n kung hindi kaming mga magulang. Ang mga magulang ang may kasalanan kung nagiging barumbado dahil hindi tama ang pagpapalaki,”

And according to Manny, he doesn’t see any potential among his children in following his footsteps and become a boxer.

He also didn’t allow his wife Jinkie to be in showbiz because according to him, if Jinkie will be entering showbiz, their children and their business will be forsaken. And there is no reason to be with showbiz because they already have their own business.

Andi Eigenmann and Albie Casiño

Andi Eigenmann has allegedly accused as a “cheater” by her former ex-boyfriend.

On Formspring, a social networking website, Albie Casiño (plays Christian in Mara Clara teleserye), was asked by a fan if he slapped the young actress. According to The Buzz,  Albie denied hitting his former girlfriend, and he said on his Formspring:

So much bu—–t. I never hit her. Maybe one of her many boys did. Andi’s a cheater kasi she has maybe 10 guys.

Though it hasn’t been verified yet if it is really Casiño who used the account.

This issue started when Andi’s friend, Saab Magalona (the late master rapper’s daughtet), tweeted:

“As a family, we value privacy. We try to keep our personal life private, and out of the news. That’s how I’ve conducted myself throughout my career. Same with Andi.

“I decided to break my silence dahil mahirap para sa akin to see my daughter in pain. I love my daughter and have dedicated my life to her and my son.

“I commend Andi for handling this personal crisis with decency and respect.

“Pinagdadasal ko na matapos na ito. I understand that there are on-going efforts to make that happen. We will give that due course. Thank you for supporting Andi.”
