It's a bit late for a birthday gift, considering that he turned 37 last July 23. But it was clear that Zanjoe Marudo did not mind the wait at all, calling the surfboard he got from his rumored girlfriend, model Josie Prendergast, the "best gift" he received this year. The actor, while on vacation in Siargao, shared on his Instagram Stories Monday a pair of photos: one of him simply showing off the light-blue surfboard, and another of him waxing it. It remains unclear whether Marudo or Prendergast are a couple already, or are still getting to know each other, like what the former told reporters back in July of last year. Marudo has been romantically linked to Prendergast, a model and surfer who grew up in Australia, since May 2018. This April, they were spotted on a trip to Hong Kong together with friends. … [Read more...] about ‘Best birthday gift’: Zanjoe gets a surfboard from rumored GF
A few days ago, two (non?)-issues erupted on social media. One was about now US-based Miss BB Gandanghari and the other about the alleged breakup between Gerald Anderson and Bea Alonzo. One hit the world with a thud and the other was a dud. I’m not saying which is what. Bea simply hinted at it in a cryptic message on her Instagram (you know: You can’t make the same mistake twice, the second time you make it, it’s not a mistake anymore, it’s a choice. ENOUGH.) heard ‘round the world and, as expected, spawned a horde of sawsaweros and sawsaweras. You might be wondering: was Bea referring to the rumor about Gerald and Pia Wurtzbach during the shoot of Gerald and Pia’s movie My Perfect You as the first “mistake,” and to the Gerald and Julia Barretto “closeness” on and off the set of their movie Between Maybes as the second “mistake.” A friendly unsolicited advice to Bea: next time naman, make yourself clear, name … [Read more...] about Postmortem on Rustom Padilla; long live, Miss BB Gandanghari!
LONDON – Diretso sa Los Angeles si Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach para sa mga posibleng project opportunities sa Hollywood matapos ang matagumpay na paglahok sa Barrio Fiesta sa London. “I’m going straight to LA for meetings and hopefully if things push through, maybe that dream can happen one day,” sabi ni Wurtzbach. Matatandaang aspirant din si Wurtzbach para sa papel na Darna. Pero suportado niya ang napiling gaganap ng Darna na si Jane de Leon. Itinuturing na second home ni Wurtzbach ang UK dahil dito nakatira ang nanay niya at kapatid. Nagtrabaho rin daw siya rito ng tatlong taon. “I worked in one of the hotels here as a waitress before. I studied culinary arts. It’s surreal. Every time I’m here, I just spend it with family,” sabi niya.

Scratch the background of today’s successful (male) singers and chances are that they are graduates of Kundirana, among them Rannie Raymundo, Juan Miguel Salvador, Von de Guzman, Carlo Orosa, Leo Dominguez (now an A-list talent manager), Gian Magdangal, Louie Ocampo and Monet Silvestre.

‘The Padilla blood runs in my veins,’ insists Ivan Padilla who started his acting career in the US and is aiming to make a name hereabouts. ‘I want my relatives to be proud of me.’ While most local talents dream of making it in Hollywood, Ivan Padilla is doing the reverse. “I want to make a name where my relatives are,” Ivan said in an exclusive Conversation. “I want my relatives to be proud of me.” That’s why he is using his real name instead of Germaine De Leon, his Hollywood screen name. Those relatives include Robin Padilla and his siblings, plus several relatives, and the late Amado Cortez (who served as a Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco during the Cory Aquino administration), father of Ivan’s mother Grace Padilla. “He was my Lolo Amado,” volunteered Ivan. “My dad, Scott Grimes, was an American car salesman. He died 18 years ago when I was 11. Last Easter Sunday (April 21) was … [Read more...] about Imported from Hollywood
