A Swiss Escape for Richard and Sarah

Richard Gutierrez had a post-Valentine escapade of sorts with sweetheart Sarah Lahbati in Switzerland, her birth country.

The actor flew over late last month, and had taken to posting photos of the trip on Instagram. “Finally with my love here in Switzerland, after a tiring session of skiing time to head home and make some Raclette ;) ,” he wrote on Feb. 24, showing a photo with Sarah – with a snowy backdrop.

In another photo he uploaded Feb. 25, Richard and Sarah are in a jacuzzi while marveling over the wintry Swiss landscape. “Blessed Thank you Lord for everything. @sarahlahbati,” he wrote. A Feb. 28 photo, on the other hand, was captioned, “#Stoked Aside from a couple of falls, skiing lessons day 3 went well,. Weather was perfect once again here in #zermatt #matterhorn #sunnega.”

Sarah, meanwhile, is apparently fascinated by the views, judging from the number of landscape photos she uploaded on her Instagram account recently.  However, it seems that intrigues continue to follow the young actress on the other side of the world. A Feb. 26 selfie (a self-taken photograph intended for social media upload) with a handbag covering her waist and hip area had netizens wondering about Sarah’s true condition. A good number of comments on her Instagram page of late are about her purported pregnancy, which Richard already refuted in previous interviews. As a seeming response to her unwavering detractors, the Fil-Swiss star tweeted Feb. 25, “Mapapagod din kayo:)).”

When a netizen asked how she feels about being inactive in showbiz, Sarah’s response was replete with optimism.

“@ma_nillen feels really good! it’s not like I can’t live without being in showbiz. Marami pang mas importanteng bagay na gusto kong gawin ;) ,” she said.

Sarah went back to Switzerland in January to take a showbiz hiatus as well as to study again. Her departure came on the heels of a legal tussle and falling-out with her mother studio GMA-7 due to contract issues.

Sarah Lahbati’s Issues With GMA Artist Center

It seems like there is a falling out between GMA Artist Center and their talent, Sarah Lahbati.

Thru the social networking site, Twitter, Sarah opened her grudge with the artist development and management center of Kapuso Network.

SARAH’S TWEETS. Here are the following tweets of Sarah:

“To all my friends and supporters, I’d like to thank you for the love and loyalty you’ve given me. I’ve been very blessed last year and I’m grateful to all of you but unfortunately you will be seeing less of me this year for reasons that are hard to explain through Twitter…”

“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.

The ICONS Talent Management Agency is another management arm of GMA-7 powered by Bebong Muñoz, the ex-boyfriend of Jolina Magdangal.

Annabelle Rama faces Nadia Montenegro at QCRTC

Annabelle Rama wasn’t able to control her emotions yesterday morning at the Quezon City Regional Trial Court where the clarificatory hearing took place for the cases filed by Nadia Montenegro against her.

The two parties arrived at the fiscal office at around 8:30 in the morning. They peacefully entered the office but Annabelle ended up shouting and cursing Nadia.

Annabelle wasn’t able to continue with the hearing. She explained herself as she rushes out of QRRTC.

“Kasi sinungaling siya, e. Deny siya nang deny sa fiscal. Tapos parang dinidiin niya ako. Sabi ko, ‘Magsabi ka ng totoo sa fiscal, wag kang magsinungaling! Kasi mga tanong kasi ni fiscal, hindi niya masagot-sagot. Sinungaling siya!” said Annabelle.

“Sabi ng fiscal kasi, ‘Dati kayong magkaibigan’. Sabi ko, ‘Wala akong kasalanan. Ang kasalanan ko lang, magbigay ng trabaho sa dalawang anak niya.’ Nandiyan ang mga bata, magdamag nagtatrabaho ‘yan, kumukuha siya ng pera.’ Sabi ko, ‘Bayaran mo ang utang mo sa akin!’ [Nadia said] wala siyang utang. Kapal ng mukha niya!” adds Annabelle.

When the press asked Nadia why Annabelle acted that way, she said: “Hindi ko alam. Basta bigla na lang siyang nagwala, na hindi ko na na-keep track kung ano’ng pinagsasabi niya.”

Nadia came to the court with her children to give additional evidences in the cases she filed against her children’s managers. She will file a motion where she asks Annabelle to bring the original contracts of her children for NBI examination. This is for the falsification of documents case that she filled against the manager. Aside from this, she will also submit some evidences showing Annabelle’s and her children’s text messages. According to her, Annabelle’s son- Richard Gutierrez, was also cursing her in text messages.

Richard speaks up about his driver’s speeding violation

Richard Gutierrez

Last night, a breaking news from 24 Oras featured Richard Gutierrez‘s driver violate the speed limit on Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City. His driver was identified as Loreto Figueroa.

According to the media and MMDA officials, Richard was cursing his driver because of driving too fast. The driver was then found out borrowed from Annabelle Rama’s (Richard’s mother and manager).

MMDA officer Angelito Diendo stated:
Siguro ‘yong galit niya sa driver, e, nabuga din niya sa…dahil lumabas siya at nagalit din siya sa driver. Nakapagmura nga siya, pero hindi naman kami… Hindi direct na kami ang minumura niya.”

This statement made Richard angry. He said that he was not rude to the MMDA officers when he was confronted. He did not say anything harsh nor didn’t get mad. As seen in the video, he was calm.

But what irritates Richard was the conversation he overheard between MMDA official Angelito Diendo and Ronnie Rivera.

Sir, si Richard Gutierrez po itong nahuli namin,” one of the officers said over the radio.

“Ayan, tiketan mo ‘yan para matauhan at matawagan ang mga reporters mamaya.” answered by the man on the radio.

Ronnie Rivera, denied that he wanted to call the media for this incident. He explained that some members of the media was already at the place to cover the MMDA operations and that none of the media was present when the actor was there.

On the other side, Loreto Figueroa admitted that he didn’t know about the overspeeding policy that was imposed by the MMDA last January 2011. Figueroa violated the 60kph-maximum speed limit because he was going at 79kph.

Richard has a statement for the members of media who covered this isssue:
Before they put that as a headline, siguro kunin muna nila side ko. This is not the first time that happened to me. It happens to me every time. Wala pa ang side ko, nasa headlines na agad.”

Richard Gutierrez and PEP settled their issue amicably.

YESTERrichardDAY at the office of Department of Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera, Richard Gutierrez and entertainment website Philippines Entertainment Portal (PEP) settled their misunderstandings amicably.

On PEP’s official Twitter account, Richard’s mother Annabelle Rama and Jo-Ann have also settled their misunderstanding. Ruffa, Richards sister and his twin brother Raymond have also expressed in their respective Twitter accounts their happiness and relief over the settled of issue.

Richard Gutierrez to star again as Captain Barbel in GMA 7

Matapos magpahinga sa paggawa ng fantaserye, muling lilipad sa Mayo si Richard Gutierrez bilang Pinoy superhero na likha ni Mars Ravelo na si Captain Barbel sa Kapuso Network.

Sa ulat ni entertainment reporter Nelson Canlas, bukod sa istorya at mga special effects, dapat ding abangan kung sino ang magiging leading lady ni Richard.

At kahit sa Mayo pa ieere ang pagbabalik ni Captain Barbel, ngayon pa lang ay pinaghahadaan na ito ng GMA 7. Nagsimula na rin ang paunang creative meeting ng fantaserye na dinaluhan mismo ni Richard, kasama ang kanyang ina na si Annabelle Rama.

Dumalo rin sa naturang pulong sina GMA Films President Annette Gozon-Abrogar at Senior Program Manager Reggie Magno. Dahil ikalawang yugto na ito ng Captain Barbel, titiyakin daw ng mga bumubuo ng produksiyon na mas lalong magiging maaksiyon at kapana-panabik ang pagbabalik ng kuwento ni Mars Ravelo.

“I think nakapag-break ako nang matagal-tagal sa mga action sequences, sa mga fight scenes, sa mga fantasy, and now I’m ready to go back. Talagang I’m looking forward to the show,” ayon kay Richard sa Chika Minute ng GMA news 24 Oras nitong Miyerkules.gallery01

Cristine Reyes admits sending hate text message about Heart Evangelista before


Inamin na ni Cristine Reyes na totoong nagpadala siya ng hate message against Heart Evangelista kaugnay ng pagkaka-link ni Heart sa ex-boyfriend ni Cristine na si Dennis Trillo. Pero nilinaw niya na matagal nang nangyari ito at hindi niya direktang tinext si Heart, bagkus ay ipinadala niya ang text message kay Rufa Mae Quinto.

“Hindi po ako directly nag-text kay Heart. Tinext ko si Rufa Mae. Pero ‘eto lang, matagal na po itong nangyari, mga early this year, mga March. So, I don’t see the point kung bakit nilalabas pa ngayong December na magtatapos na yung taon,” sabi ni Cristine nang makausap siya ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang press sa presscon ng Ang Darling Kong Aswang kahapon, December 17, sa Moomba restaurant, Quezon City.

Kung matagal nang nangyari yun, bakit sa tingin niya naiintriga ulit silang dalawa ni Heart ngayon?

“I think meron yatang nagte-text ulit sa kanya ngayon. So, I don’t know kung pinagbibintangan niya ako or something. Sana i-make sure lang natin na ako talaga yun. Ngayon, idine-deny ko kasi hindi naman po talaga. Pero yung before ako, totoo, ako talaga yun. Pero hindi ko nga siya directly tinext. Ang tinext ko si Rufa Mae,” paliwanag niya.

So, si Rufa Mae ang nagpadala kay Heart ng hate message niya?

“Oo. Yun totoo talaga yun,” sagot ni Cristine. “Hindi ko naman dine-deny yun, e. Pero yung ngayon, hindi porke’t nangyari yun before, ako ulit yung ngayon, di ba? So, huwag naman tayong magbintang.”
