Vic Sotto is now a proud lolo.

The 54-year-old comedian-TV host was so excited when he found out that his eldest daughter Danica Sotto had already given birth to her first son with husband, basketball player Marc Pingris.

“Sinilip ko yung bata sa nursery and the feeling is indescribable,” related Vic to GMA News reporter Nelson Canlas.

Then, the first-time grandfather described his grandson: “He’s super adorable and cute. Parang kamukha ni Danica na ayaw namang pumayag ng tatay [Marc] at sabi, ‘Hindi, pagtagal-tagal niyan, hahaba na rin ang mukha niyan.'”

The baby’s name is Jean-Michele, a French-sounding name attributed to Marc’s French bloodline. Danica had to give birth via caesarean section because of the size of the baby, who weighed 8.2 lbs. and measured 55 centimeters.

Aside from his excitement, Vic also managed to crack a joke about his grandson’s name. When asked about the child’s nickname, Vic answered in jest, “Ang pinoproblema na lang nila ‘yong nickname, kung ano itatawag. Ayaw nilang tanggapin, e, Jun-Jun!”

Vic recently finished his movie project Double Trouble with Comedy King Dolphy. He admitted that he used to envy his co-actor, who already has a number of grandchildren. But now, Vic is glad that he could already relate to Dolphy when talking about being a grandparent.

“Lolo na ako katulad ni Dolphy. Noong una, medyo naiinggit ako kay Dolphy. Ngayon, pareho na kaming lolo,” said Vic.

On the other hand, Vic refused to be called “lolo” by his grandchild. He said, “Sa amin, ang tawagan ng lolo is tatay, e, so tatay na rin ang tawag sa akin.”

 After more than 35 years, Annabelle Rama returns to the silver screen for her comeback movie produced by GMA Films and Regal Entertainment. In My Monster Mom, the feisty talent manager stars with her unica hija Ruffa Gutierrez in this heartwarming yet funny tale about a mother who becomes reunited with her daughter after many years of absence.


During the first press conference of My Monster Mom, Ruffa told the press, “It is such a joy to work with my mom for the first time. There are so many stories to tell all of you. I’d like to thank Mother Lily [Monteverde] and GMA Films for giving me the chance to work with my monster mom and for allowing me to work with Direk Joey Reyes for the second time. Yung first time po namin magkasama, Regal Shocker days pa!”
Annabelle recalls her first taping day for My Monster Mom, “Ito talaga ang unang totoong pelikula ko kasi nakaka-arte talaga ako. Sabi sa akin ni Ruffa, ‘Ma, ingat ka kay Direk Joey [Reyes]. Dapat prepared ka sa script mo, sa acting mo.’ Kaya grabe, pinagpawisan ako. Ang preparation ko hanggang langit.”

She says that she turned down a lot of movie offers before but My Monster Mom was different. “Ako hindi ako humihingi ng project, ako ino-offeran. Kaya ko nagustuhan ko itong My Monster Mom, mother role din ang istorya kaya sabi ko baka hindi ako mahirapan umarte dito. Nung nabasa ko ang script, lalo kong nagustuhan kasi film house pa ni Mother Lily at ng GMA. Si Direk Joey pa ang director, siyempre blockbuster director.”

Annabelle became known as a “bomba” star during the 1970s for films such as Hidhid (1971), Hayok (1970), and Uhaw (1970).

SYNOPSIS. My Monster Mom focuses on Annabelle Rama as the “monster” to her three beautiful and charming kids. She plays the role of Esme Fajardo who becomes pregnant at the young age of 16 years old. This prompted Esme to entrust her eldest child (Ruffa Gutierrez) to her brother and sister-in-law who happens to migrate in the United States. Despite her instability in life, Esme promises that she will be reunited with her daughter.


However, the distance proved to be a hindrance since Esme was unable to communicate regularly with her brother and her only child. Abby grew up without knowing her biological mother. After getting into a series of failed relationships, Esme bears two other children Pipo (Mart Escudero) and Boboy (JC de Vera), both of whom have different fathers.

A shocking blow came to Esme’s life when she learned that her brother died in the United States. Abby then learns about her real identity and decides to come to the Philippines to meet Esme.


Both Esme and Abby were unprepared for their sudden reunion. They both lived in two different worlds and could not understand each other’s culture and way of life. Abby the balikbayan could not adapt to the Pinoy culture since she has been living as a renowned fashion stylist in New York for all her life. Esme, on the other hand, lives in Kamuning and is a street-smart person. Her friends are all equally formidable, namely a retired Japayuki who recruits Filipinas to be sent abroad as entertainers (played by Eugene Domingo) and an ageing Visayan queen who sells jewelry (played by Khryss Adalia).

As Esme and Abby begin to accept their similarities and differences, they realize that despite their opposite lives, they do share the same genetic heritage. This co-production of GMA Films and Regal Entertainment is a must-see amusing movie for everyone who wants to get a good laugh while watching this and thinking of their own “monster” moms.

My Monster Mom opens in theaters nationwide starting July 2, 2008.

 Ginulantang ang buong Pilipinas sa paglabas ng July issue ng YES MAGAZINE dala ang isang malaking kontrobersiya! Kinumpirma kasi ng nasabing magazine ang pormal na engagement ni Ryan Agoncillo kay Judy Ann Santos sa isang Beach Resort sa Dumaguete City.


       >>>Narito ang ilang detalye sa lumabas na ISSUE ng YES MAGAZINE!

THE PRECIOUS DIAMOND RING. Ryan admitted that he really sought the help of Juday’s best friend, Beth, and her husband, Chinese businessman Johnny Wong, in obtaining the controversial diamond ring for Judy Ann.

When she knew about it, Beth said that she got upset because they were keeping it a secret from her. “Kasi, feeling ko, asawa naman kita, di sana niligwak mo na sa akin. E, ang bilin kasi ni Rye, kahit sa akin, ‘wag sasabihin.”

Later on, Ryan realized that he also needed the help of Beth—assess the quality of the diamond he had chosen and know the exact size of Judy Ann’s right ring finger.

Ryan called Beth to make sure that the ring he wanted was a good buy. After he gave the specs, Beth referred to a G.I.A. (Gemological Institute of America) paper that was included in one of her rings.

When all the needed information was gathered, Ryan purchased the ring in Hong Kong with the help of Johnny’s Hong Kong-based cousin, Cindy Kung. When it arrived in Manila, Beth kept the ring until the day Ryan proposed to Juday.

Ryan explained, “Hindi ko muna siya hinawakan, kasi baka hindi ako makatiis, e. Parang at any given moment, nasa highway kami, nagmamaneho, papunta kung saan, maisip ko na, ‘Yayain ko na ‘tong magpakasal!’ Ganoon na, e.”

THE SECRET PLAN. Ryan kept everything about his plans for the proposal to himself. Even their close friends had no idea how he was going to propose to his girlfriend.

However, Ryan gave a slight hint about it during a dinner with friends. Out of nowhere, he talked about his dream proposal. Beth remembered Ryan describing, “Tipong nasa cliff, ‘tapos, magpapagawa daw siya ng chapel na puro pillars, ganyan-ganyan. ‘Tapos, nakalagay lang sa isang plank ng kahoy yung date, ‘tapos ‘yong date, ‘tapos ‘yong pangalan ng babaeng pagpoproposan niya at saan siya nag-propose.”

After a few days, Judy Ann was set to celebrate her birthday during a three-day vacation at the Antalung Beach Resort, which was actually a surprise birthday gift from her best friend Beth.

In the early evening of May 10, everybody started to party in time for welcoming the first hour of Juday’s May 11 birthday. They had no idea about how Ryan would propose that night.  

THE MOST-AWAITED MOMENT. When the right moment came, Ryan went down on his knees before Judy Ann, uttering these exact words: “Will you marry me?”

Then, he remembered exactly how he felt at that exact moment. Ryan said, “Nakakatawa, e. Alam mo, ang daming nagsasalita, e. Noong nilabas ko na ‘yong singsing, ang daming nagsasalita. Pero ‘yong naririnig ko lang, parang, ‘Nyowowo’ [mimicking the garbled sound from a tape recorder being played when the battery is low].”

What was Juday’s reaction?

She answered, “Ang una kong sinabi actually, no’ng ‘binigay niya ‘yong singsing, ‘Seryoso ka ba?'”

Later on, she finally replied, “‘Of course!’ Dapat ang sasabihin ko, ‘Of course! Absolutely!’ Pero hindi ko nagawa. ‘Of course lang ang lumabas sa bibig ko.’

During this moment, Beth said, everyone was blinded with tears. “Lahat kami, umiiyak kami nang sabay-sabay.”

THE WEDDING PLANS. Now that Ryan has asked the most-awaited question in his relationship with Juday, their followers are now asking: When is the wedding?

Judy Ann admitted that they have no definite plans yet. In fact, she said in the interview, “Baka nga long engagement ‘to, e. Kasi magpaplano din muna kami, siyempre. ‘Yon naman ang pinag-usapan namin. Bahay muna, then, ano. Madali na din naman kasi ‘yong kasal. One day lang ‘yon.”

The only thing that is definite about the wedding is that it’s going to be a simple celebration.

Ryan said, “Very simple. Very simple. Do’n kami swak din. Kaya ano, e… Wala pa. Wala pa. Basta definitely, simple siya. And then, it’s gonna be very private and solemn.”

Judy Ann added, “Simple lang. At ako ang masusunod…”

Ryan has just returned from a vacation in Europe with Judy Ann and some of their friends who were also with them in Antulang. Judy Ann, who chose to stay there, says that it is not their honeymoon yet, rather it is a gift for herself.

The July 2008 issue of YES! has the full details of Juday and Ryan’s engagement from beginning to end. YES! is now available at all leading bookstores and magazine

  Maraming intriga ang kumalat sa kabila ng ligtas na pagkaka-recover sa aming kasamahang si CES DRILON. Matatandaang kinidnap ang reporter kasama ang kanyang driver, camera man, at isang propesor ng bandidong ABU SAYAFF ng mapadpad sila sa Sulu upang maghatid ng balita.

                    May mga nagsasabing binayaran umano ng gobyerno at ng ABS-CBN ang bandidong grupo upang palayain ang grupo ni Ces. May video kasing nakunan na may lumapag na private helicopter sa Sulu at isang lalaki ang bumaba na may dalang dalawang malalaking itim na bag na dili umano’y naglalaman ng P15M na siyang ransom money.

                    Isa pang isyu ay ang pagrescue ever ni Senator Loren Legarda na nagsilbi umanong negotiator in camera. Meaning, publicity lang ang habol ng Senadora. May kumakalat kasing tsismaks na si Loren at hindi na si Noli ang susuportahan ng ABS-CBN sa 2010 presedential elections.

                    At ang pinaka-matinding chicka! Dili umano’y ni-rape si Ces Drilon ng bandidong grupong kumidnap sa kanila. Kapansin-pansin na ni walang nagtanong kay Ces tungkol sa isyung ito. Nakakahiya naman kasing itanong ng mga kasamahan niya sa MEDIA ang sensitibong isyung iyon. Pero, ayon sa ilang eksperto, hindi umano imposibleng hindi natikman ng ABU SAYAFF ang magandang reporter. Pero mas maganda, kung mismong sa bibig ni Ces manggagaling ang kumpirmasyon. Sa ngayon, ang isyung NI-RAPE SI CES DRILON NG ABU SAYAFF ay nananatiling ULTIMATE TSISMAKS OF THE WEEK!

                   Sa gitna ng mainit na balitaktakan tungkol sa lumalalang problema sa MERALCO, aba’y akalain ninyong nagulantang ang buong REPUBLIKA NG SHOWBIZ ng makialam sa isyung ito si JUDY ANN SANTOS. Naglabas kasi ang MERALCO ng mga ADVERTISEMENTS na ipinagtatanggol ang kanilang kompanya, at si JUDAY ang front ng mga nasabing commercial. Nakakagulat dahil hindi umano alam ni ALFIE LORENZO, ang manager ni Juday, ang paggawa nito ng nasabing commercial.

                    Marami tuloy ang nagsasabing basta’t pagkakaperahan ay papasukin ni Juday kahit na manloko ng Sambayanang Pilipino. Nakatikim tuloy ang dalaga ng mga banta mula sa ibat-ibang sektor ng lipunan na i-ban ang lahat ng mga produktong iniendorso niya. At hindi lang iyon, hindi na rin umano dapat suportahan ang lahat ng mga proyekto ng mahusay na aktres.

                    Sa kasalukuyan ay nasa Europe si Juday para sa ilang series of shows. Nagulat umano ang dalaga sa matinding feedback na inabot niya sa paggawa ng 20M worth na patalastas. At sa pamamagitan ng kanyang Kuya na si Jeffrey Santos, naibahagi sa amin ang text message na galing mismo kay Juday;

           ” I am so sad with what happened. Hindi ko akalaing magiging ganito. I would explain to the public ‘pag bumalik na ako. Magulo pa ang isip ko ngayon..

                    Nakakatakot talaga ang pinasok na ito ng dalaga, at dapat na tanggapin niya ang mga consequences nito. Marami tuloy ang nagtatanong, “ITO NA BA ANG KATAPUSAN NG CAREER NI JUDAY?”

               Kahapon ay tuluyan ng tinakasan ng sikat na young actor na si Patrick Garcia ang kanyang responsibilidad sa magiging anak nila ng ex-girlfriend nitong si Jennylyn Mercado.  Matagal na naman silang hiwalay ng young actress subalit umugong pa rin ang pagtututol ng mga fans dahil tila walang pakialam si Patrick para sa magiging baby nila.

               Ayon sa isang interview kahapon bago siya tuluyang lumipad ng Amerika, matagal na umanong binabalak ng binata na umalis subalit hinintay pa niyang matapos ang taping ng teleseryeng “Babangon Ako’t Dudurugin Kita”. Ipagpapatuloy umano ni Patrick ang kanyang pag-aaral ng directing sa University of New York. Wala naman umanong balak takbuhan ni Patrick ang responsibilidad niya sa pagiging ama. Nagkataon lang umano ang kanyang pag-alis sa napapalapit ng panganganak ni Jennylyn. Napag-usapan na rin naman nila ang sustento  para sa bata.

               Masaya naman si Jennylyn sa kabila ng mga pinagdadaanan nila ngayon ni Patrick. Excited na nga ang dalaga sa pagdating ng kanyang baby boy na hindi pa tiyak ang magiging pangalan. Sa mga nangyaring ito sa buhay ng dalaga, tiyak na maraming bagay ang kanyang natutunan.

                    Sino na naman itong isang sikat na teleserye leading man na napapabalitang may jutoks daw at hindi kaaya-aya sa ilong ang amoy? Ayon sa aming source, ang mismong katambal nitong artista/singer ang nakaamoy ng itinatagong baho ni famous t.v actor. May eksena daw kasi na kailangan nilang magyakapan, at pagkataas ni actor ng kanyang arms ay sumabong ang nakasusulasok na B.O!

                    Minsan nang napabalitang bading ang gwapong actor na ito, pero marami pa ring kinikilig sa kanya dahil sa taglay nyang kagwapuhan. Pero titilian pa kaya sya ng mga fans kung malaman nilang parang patay na daga ang amoy ng kili-kili nito? Marami na rin umanong nakakapansin sa B.O ni actor pero nahihiya silang sitahin ito. Pati nga ang direktor ng kanilang drama series ay umaming biktima rin sya ng putok ni actor!



* May koneksyon kay Tita Anabelle!

* Hunk at gwapo! Magaling magdala ng damit!

* And last, ….si DEREK!!!

   Kamakailan ay umugong ang bali-balitang ikakasal na daw itong sina Regine Velasquez at Ogie Alcasid. Ayon sa isang mapagkakatiwalaang source, ipinasya umanong gawin ng dalawa ang kanilang kasal sa taong ito sa buwan ng Disyembre. Marahil ay hindi na nakakagulat ang balitang ito sa mga fans dahil sa napakaraming trials and struggles ng dalawa ay inaasahan naman ng lahat na happy ending din ang kanilang uuwian.

                    Samantala, wala naman daw problema sa dating asawa ni Ogie na si Michelle ang planong pagpapakasal ng magkasintahan. Ever since naman daw ay buo ang kanyang suporta sa dalawang singer. Ayon sa isang interview kay Michelle, papayag pa nga daw siyang maging Maid of Honor ng dalawa sa kanilang kasal. Nakakatuwang isipin na ang mga artista talaga, daig pa ang pelikula sa kanilang totoong buhay. Biruin nyo, ang dating asawa, papayag na maging Maid of Honor? Gosh!

                    Pero teka mga friends, gaano naman katotoo ang balita na may problema daw si Regine sa pagbubuntis? Meaning, BAOG siya! Paano na yan! Maganda sana kung magkaka-anak sila ni Ogie dahil siguradong magiging mahuhusay ding singer ang mga bata. Pero, sure naman tayong walang diprensya si Ogie dahil nagkaroon sila ng mga chikiting ni Michelle. Siguradong malulungkot ang mga fans kapag tuluyan nang ibinulgar ng dalawa na never silang magkaka-baby. How sad!

                    Anyway, sure na daw na si Janno Gibbs ang magiging best man sakaling matuloy ang binabalak ng kasal. Kaabang-abang din daw kung sino ang gagawing wedding singer na balita namin ay mga foreign artists pa. Siguradong ang ALCASID-VELASQUEZ WEDDING ang itatanghal na pinaka-bonggang kasalan sa taong ito.

                    Sana lang, hindi matulad ang dalawa sa maraming artista na pagkatapos ng magarbong kasalan ay maghihiwalay din after a couple of months. Kaya sa ga fans nina Ogie at Regine, let us pray na maging happy sila ever after!

DABOY, BABUSH!! June 13, 2008

  Kahapon nga, June 11, ay tuluyan nang inihatid sa kanyang huling hantungan itong si Rudy “Daboy” Fernandez sa The Heritage Park sa Taguig City. Dinagsa ng halos daan-daang bigating pangalan sa showbiz ang libing ng aktor. Bumaha ng luha at pighati ang bawat isang nakiramay. Ang mga fans naman ay nagtyaga na lamang pumuwesto saharap ng gate ng Heritage dahil ipinasyang maging pribado ang naturang libing. Alas dos ng hapon ng simulan ang misa para kay Daboy. At bandang alas tres ay inayos na ang processional parade. Nasa unahan ang mag-anak ni Rudy na sina Lorna Tolentino at ang kanyang dalawang anak. Kasama nila ang ilang malalapit na kaibigan na sina Amy Austria, Fanny Serrano, Philip Salvador at Bong Revilla.

                    Nasa kanilang likuran naman si Mark Anthony na super-gwapo sa kanyang suot na barong tagalog. Kapit-bisig namang sumabay si Alma Moreno na todo ang pag-iyak. Naroon din sina Dating Pangulong Erap Estrada, at ang anak niyang si Jinggoy. Kumpleto rin ang pamilya Gutierez.



                 Maraming kumakalat na balita na si Senator Jinggoy Estrada daw ang bumili ng kabaong ni Daboy na nagkakahalaga ng P 1.6M. (My God! Sana naman ay hindi galing sa pangungurakot ang perang ginamit sa burol ni Daboy! Kung hindi, baka di sya tanggapin ni Lord sa heaven!!)

                 May mga intriga ding nagtatanong kung bakit may BANDILA ang kabaong ni Daboy at binigyan pa ng 21 GUN SALUTE! Samantalang ang yumaong aktor na si Fernando Poe Jr. , na di hamak na mas sikat kay Daboy ay walang mga ganyang eklavu!! (Anu ba kayo? Syempre, andyan ang dalawang Senador!!)

                  Anyway, sa kabila ng mga intriga, ipinaaabot namin ang aming pakikiramay sa mga naulila ng dakilang aktor. Hindi maikakailang si RUDY FERNANDEZ ay isa na sa mga HALIGI NG PELIKULANG PILIPINO!
