Maraming mga bagay at pagkakataon na pwede kang sumaya.”, he said. Vic also denied the rumors that he now has a relationship with a flight attendant. “Tagal na nun eh.

“Hindi mawawala yun eh kasi it’s part of the business. Kung wala namang kumpetisyon, hindi ka magiging alert. As long as friendly and good competition. Ayaw ko lang yung medyo maruming laban. Pero kung parehas ang laban, patas ang laban kung baga sige pagandahan tayo ng show, pagandahan tayo ng konsepto. It’s good for the industry. It’s good for people working in the industry. More shows more work, more movies. It helps a lot of people. So ung competition hindi mawawala yun and I’m hoping hindi mawawala.”

On May 15, Sunday 6:30pm, Who Wants to be a Millionaire(TV5) will air its new season. The said TV game show program will introduce 2 new life lines: People Speak and Switch giving studio contestants and the audience a greater chance to win cash prizes of up to two million pesos.

Pokwang: Showing her true colors

Comedienne and TV Host, Pokwang had her well deserved rest for quite a while channeling her short termed schedule vacancy towards campaigning for Liberal Party standard bearers, presidentiable Noynoy Aquino III and vice-presidentiable Manuel Roxas III.

Several media personnel were able to interview her and make inquiries concerning her campaign experience although she works hand and hand in Wowowee with Willie Revillame who is in fact an endorser of Sen. Manny Villar. Pokwang only instigated the fact that she obviously knows whose political side she’s siding on and began on sharing her respect and love for the Aquino family especially Ms. Kris, who has been very supportive to her from the very dawn of her career. She is only returning the favor, she said.

On her part, she thinks Willie won’t take it badly if she supports Noynoy since he respects the insights and opinion of every Wowowee personnel and she does the same for him. Changing the topic, she was asked what was the reason for Willie’s absence for the show but she only insisted that she does not speak about it in detail.


“Mharlyn Aguilar”, Pokwang’s newest spoof subject.


Pokwang [Marietta Subong in real life] finds another character to potray. After spoofing Annabelle Rama, the feisty Gutierezz matriarch, Irene Kho, mother of disgraced doctor Hayden Kho and Pac Mom, Aling Dionisia Pacquiao. She now impersonates Marlene Aguilar, the mother of the controversial road rage suspect Jason Ivler.

It became a viral hit on Youtube after it was debuted in “NNNN” portion of the gag show, “Banana Split” on ABS-CBN. Viewers applauds how the ‘ace comedian’ portray Marlene Agular on her spot-on mimicry. “Well, I’m happy that viewers appreciate what I do”, Pokwang said when she interviewed and informed her “Mharlyn Aguilar spoof” is now the talk of netizens.

According to Pokwang, its not easy to find someone to spoof nor its easy to portray them convincingly in amusing manner.

“I watch [video] footage. I study their hand gestures… their eye movement. It’s not easy.”

Pokwang insists what she is doing is purely for the entertainment of viewers- nothing more. “I don’t mean it to offend, it’s just work.”


Pokwang on Juicy!


Nag-guest ang comedienne na si Pokwang sa talk show na Juicy ng TV5 kahapon, January 6.

Tinanong siya ng host nito na si Alex Gonzaga kung nahirapan ba siyang makapasok sa showbiz. Bago kasi naging artista si Pokwang ay nagsimula muna siya bilang isang stand-up comedian sa Music Box, isang sing-along bar sa Quezon City na nagsara na.

“Gaya ng sinabi ko noon, hindi ko naman talaga pinangarap na pumasok sa showbiz. Gusto ko lang maging isang TV dancer. Pero ibinigay ito ni Lord kaya dito ako napunta sa showbiz,” sabi ni Pokwang.

Sinundan ng tanong ni Alex kung nahirapan bang makapag-adjust sa showbiz si Pokwang.

“Nung una, oo,” sagot niya. “Pero nung naisip ko, ‘Ay, enjoy mo na lang, ang saya pala!’ Kumikita ka na, nag-i-enjoy ka pa.”

Anong sabi ng friends o ng family niya nang sumikat na siya?

“Tuwang-tuwa sila, siyempre. Nung una bigyan ko lang sila ng  face towel na regalo, tuwang-tuwa na sila. Pero ngayon kelangan talaga mamahalin, yung mga signature na. Demanding na sila ngayon!” tawa ni Pokwang

Kuwento pa ni Pokwang kay Alex, marami na raw siyang benefits na nakukuha mula nang maging isa siyang artista.

“Dati pag pumipila ako ng mahabang pila, like sa airport, sinisigawan ka pa, ‘I said, pumila ka nang maayos!’ Pero ngayon, ‘Ay, si Ma’am Pokwang, ba’t hindi pa kayo nakakaalis?’ Pero hindi naman ako abusadong tao. Sumusunod ako sa rules. Pag kailangang pumila, pumipila talaga ako.”

May dose anyos na anak na babae si Pokwang mula sa isang Hapon. Marami nang intriga na na-encounter si Pokwang mula nang pasukin niya ang showbiz. Kaya tanong ni Alex kung naapektuhan na ba ng intriga ang anak ni Pokwang

“Depende sa intriga,” sabi niya. “Pero ang talagang naapektuhan siya, yung nalaman niya na may naka-one night stand daw ako na isang bading. Nagpa-picture lang naman siya sa akin, hindi ko naman siya kilala, tapos sasabihin niya, may nangyari sa amin!

“Minor lang naman yun kung tutuusin, pero dun talaga naapektuhan yung bata. Anyway, tapos na naman yung isyu na yun, inaano ko lang,”

In-explain naman daw ni Pokwang sa anak na hindi siya ganung klase ng babae na nakikipag-one night stand.

“Kinakausap ko naman yung bata nang masinsinan, nang seryoso. Naiintindihan naman niya ako. In-explain ko, ‘Anak, hindi ako makikipag-one night stand. Unang-una, pag gabi, tulog ako!” tawa ulit ni Pokwang.

Paano ang bonding time nila ng kanyang anak?

“Pag wala akong trabaho, nagluluto kaming dalawa. Nag-eeksperimento kami ng mga menu.”

Mahigpit ba si Pokwang as a mom?

“Sa pag-aaral, sobrang higpit ko sa kanya. Sabi ko, ‘Anak, hindi ko kailangan ang mga gold medal, mga kung ano-ano. Importante sa akin makatapos ka. Huwag kang uuwi na buntis ka!’” birong sabi ni Pokawang.
