If Janet Jackson can, why can’t Ai-Ai delas Alas? Janet was 50 when she gave birth. There have been several other cases, including Nanay Caring who conceived Ice (formerly Aiza) Seguerra, husband of FDCP head Liza Diño), when she was already into her early 50s. Hope springs eternal, so they say, and Ai-Ai hangs on to that hope (against hope) that, heaven permitting, she and husband Gerald Sibayan (a certified, though not yet full-fledged, pilot) can have their first child — at the ripe (not-so-old) age of 54. “God willing, Gerald and I will have that baby by November next year,” Ai-Ai reiterated at the presscon for And Ai, Thank You!, a Reality Entertainment/Horseshoe Studio joint venture directed by Joven Tan, showing nationwide starting on Wednesday, Aug. 14. “Tulad ng parati kong sinasabi, mayroon na kaming naka-reserved na embryo na puede ko nang ipagbuntis anytime my doctor gives me the go-signal.

Curtain-raisers: • The DPA who sent the following item reminded Funfare not to mention when and where in the US the incident happened. “I’m telling you about it as a reminder for our kababayan artists who are staging a concert in the US,” said the DPA. Anyway, the ticket sales for the concert were less than 70 percent so the artist’s manager wanted the producer to give away unsold tickets so that the venue would look full. That’s called “dressing up.” But the producer said no, saying it was not her fault if not many people bought tickets. The manager threatened she wouldn’t let the artist appear if the venue didn’t look “full.” Suffice it to say that the show went on, 70-percent “full” or not. • A sexy actress has a “big” problem with her weight and she openly talked about it among friends. She’s determined to shed several pounds, most of which concentrated on her breasts … [Read more...] about Ai-Ai confirms doing MMFF movie with Coco
MANILA – Ai Ai delas Alas is no longer acting as the manager of the highly popular hip-hop group Ex Battalion. In a report by Push, the comedienne said she’s already had enough of the group. “Ayaw ko na! Hindi ko na kaya! Ang tagal ko nang nagtitiis eh. Noon pa ito dapat kaya lang, nahiya ako kay Boss Vic (Del Rosario) at sa Viva kasi may pelikula kami. Ayan, naipalabas na, so I quit! Aalis na talaga ako, bibitiw, lalayo!” she said. Delas Alas also cited several instances where Ex Battalion demonstrated their unprofessionalism. “May gigs, tatango sila, magko-commit ako tapos last minute, biglang ayaw na nila. May magpapa-color daw kasi ng hair na gold. May mga hindi nagising, naiwan ng eroplano. Akong nasusubo sa gulo at napapahiya sa mga producer na kausap ko,” Delas Alas explained. “Pipirma ng kontrata sa Viva biglang ayaw na. Premiere night ng movie namin, late na late 'yung iba sa kanila. Sabi ko, ‘Hindi na kayo nahiya. 'Yung senior … [Read more...] about News ‘Hindi ko na kaya’: Ai Ai delas Alas drops Ex Battalion
Ai-Ai rates self 9.9 as a mother Asked to rate herself as a mother, Ai-Ai delas Alas said, with a perfect smile, “Only God is perfect, so I give myself a 9.9.” Ask her about having been adopted even before she was born, and the smile instantly dissolves into a subtle frown until her voice cracks. Sure, the topic has been only glossed over during previous interviews and it was only during the recent one, for her new starrer, Viva Films’ Sons Of Nanay Sabel (SONS), that somebody asked Ai-Ai to elaborate on it as a nod to Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12. As the story goes, Martina Eileen (Ai-Ai) was inside the tummy of Gregoria Hernandez delas Alas when Gregoria’s childless sister, Justa delas Alas (an engineer at the Bureau of Lands), asked to adopt her. Economically-strained, Gregoria and her husband, Rosendo delas Alas, said yes. Ai-Ai was seven years old when she learned about it. Since then, she would pay her biological … [Read more...] about Ai-Ai rates self 9.9 as a mother
Super Tekla tackles dual roles in movie debut MANILA, Philippines — “Honestly, I’m pressured because I feel that a big responsibility has been placed on my shoulders.” That was Super Tekla sharing his thoughts in the vernacular on his launching movie, titled Kiko En Lala. The responsibility, the comedian was referring to in a recent media call, is meeting expectations that the Backyard Productions venture will have a good showing at the tills. He said that he was not pessimistic but couldn’t help but face the truth that “you know, you can’t please everybody.” The best way to deal with it, he said, is bring his A-game as a comedian who has crossed over from TV to film. “Kaya tinutumbasan ko ng husay. Bahala na ang tao (I would reciprocate it with talent and let the public decide). But I did my best,” said Super Tekla. “Kung ano ang dapat mailapat mo sa … [Read more...] about Super Tekla tackles dual roles in movie debut
