What’s this we hear about Angel Locsin and Oyo Boy Sotto? Angel was the girlfriend of the late Miko Sotto, Oyo Boy’s cousin. She is currently being paired with the latest heartthrob Richard Gutierrez. But there’s something’s cooking between Angel and Oyo Boy. Although they had denied it, some quarters are still insisting. Eh, ano, inggit lang siguro kayo!

CAN THIS BE LOVE is the forthcoming movie of Sandara Park and Hero Angeles. Written and directed by Joey Javier Reyes , the movie promises to be another kilig in the footsteps of Let The Love Begin (which earned 100 M) and Dreamboy. Eh, wala na si Sandara, nag-park na sa Korea, di ba?

-*-*-

Another forthcoming kilig movie is SAY THAT YOU LOVE ME starring Jennylyn Mercado and Mark Herras who we heard are acting like cat and dog with their constant LQs. Then there’s I WILL ALWAYS LOVE you with the box-office busters Angel Locsin and Richard Gutierrez to be shot in Canada. What? Kilig movie after kilig movie? Eh baka mapa-jingle na tayo nyan, ha?

BOSO is Viva’s first feature film shot in digital video. Starring Katya Santos and Jeffrey Quizon, Boso is the story of a peeping Tom. Movies in digital format can only be shown in selected theaters. Viva insiders say that the digital technology is becoming the trend. Eh, ano pa nga ba!

First it was Marvin, now it is Cogie Domingo. Allegedly, Cogie had a girl pregnant. The girl happens to be the daughter of Pepe Smith of Juan Dela Cruz band. Marvin had denied then eventually admitted. Now it’s Cogie’s turn to deny. Eh, baka siguro may eventually rin si Cogie!

Sad to hear that Deborah Sun is ailing with liver cancer. The name rings a bell so we asked our Showbiz Almanac (a.k.a. Tante De Ramos) who Deborah really is. Gigi Salvador is her real name, daughter of Leroy Salvador and Baby Porcuna. Leroy was the screen partner of Sylvia La Torre in the successful Tang-tarang-Tang series with Pugo , Rosa Aguirre and Bentot. Baby Porcuna’s bio was filmed with Amy Austria in the lead (Hindi Iyo Ang Mundo, Baby Porcuna). Back to Gigi, she came back from the States late last year to make peace with everyone who touched her life since she is already in the terminal stage. It is suspected that the liver problem arose from her use of drugs. Eh, ang maganda naman, may gustong mag-donate ng liver!

Rosanna Roces is at it again. A feud is a-brewing between Osang and her in-laws Sen. Bong Revilla and Lani Mercado. According to our reliable radar, Osang was disgusted upon learning that their celebrity apo (Jose Gabrielle) got sick while in the Revilla residence. The isssue was blown up with, as usual, the meddling of Lolit Solis and Cristy Fermin. Although Senator Bong played it down, the issue persists because Lani doesn’t want to elaborate and Osang wants to elaborate. Osang even threatened to deprive the Revillas of visitation and temporary custody rights. Eh, kelan ka ba masasanay, Kap, ha, kelan?

Former child actress Andrea Bautista is to wed Junjun Yñares, an impending union of Cavite and Rizal. Andrea is the one who takes care of former Sen. Ramon Revilla so it was a challenge how to break the news to the Revilla patriarch. But like a real man, Ramon accepted everything in delight and welcomed his future son-in-law. Eh, here’s hoping na edukado naman ang mga future in-laws!

We caught a glimpse of Quizon Avenue last weekend. Although some gags and sketches are as old but not as great as Dolphy himself, the show is very refreshing and relaxing. Add to this the personal touch of Dolphy and his sons Eric Quizon, Jeffrey Quizon and Vandolph, one gets a nice package of a show in the traditional comedy style. Eh, mas mainam naman ang mga luma kesa sa bagong reality show na stressful at puro ek-ek, di ba?

-*-*-

Speaking of reality show, one thing we noticed in Extra Challenge is the repetition of a scene where it was shown in the beginning, in the middle and in the end. Worse, it is shown again the next day. Eh, bawal ba ang pahabain?

The MMFF closed with a bang via a testimonial dinner to the success of the recently-held festival. Chairman Bayani Fernando distributed the envelopes, not for awards but of the cash incentives to the producers. Mother Lily Monteverde was surprised that the supposedly 500,000 dwindled to 200,000. BF, for his part, explained that there were deductions due to absences in the activities like parades and promos. But Mother Lily is set to complain. Eh, saan ba bulsa punta ang 300,000 deduction, ha, BF?

If there’s a foreigner worthy of an award, it is Jacky Woo. He’s been in town for so long, dabbling in TV shows and lately in movies via Panaghoy Sa Suba. Jacky invested millions in that movie but didn’t get credit as a part-producer. Despite Panaghoy losing money, Jacky is still bent on doing and investing in another movie. Eh, sana kumita naman para huwag mag-hara-kiri si Jacky!
