Bianca Umali refuses to confront bashers

BIANCA Umali is happy to be part of the new comedy musical show, “Full House Tonight,” that starts airing this Saturday after “Magpakailanman.” “Miguel and I have done comedy before, in ‘Ismol Family,’ but it’s a sitcom at ‘di gaya nitong we’ll do skits and musical number with more established singers and standup comics,” she said. 

Bianca, who’s so lovely even without make up, became controversial recently when she posted “no filter” in her social media account and it went viral. Some misinterpreted it to mean that she’s against those who choose to put on makeup. How did she feel about it?

“Siempre, I felt sad kasi ang gusto ko lang namang iparating is that, once in awhile, it’s better if we’d appreciate the natural beauty that God gave us na wala tayong nilalagay na kahit ano, kasi maraming masyadong dependent sa makeup.”

Some girls told her they’re not like her who has the money to consult a dermatologist all the time. Instead of replying to all the bashing she got, Bianca chose to keep quiet. “Hindi naman ako against sa paglalagay ng makeup. Bilang artista, ginagamit ko talaga ito kasi kasama sa trabaho ko. But I guess hindi talaga maiiwasan ang pagkakaiba ng opinion, so okay lang. I’ve stated mine, they’ve stated theirs, let’s leave it at that.”

How is it working with Regine Velasquez in “Full House Tonight”? 


“It’s a great experience kasi hindi ko ine-expect na ang galing niyang magpatawa. I know she’s a great singer pero ‘yung mag comedy, ang husay rin pala niya. I learn a lot from her and from the other comedians in the show, like Philip Lazaro, Kim Idol, Tammy Brown, Sarah Brakensiek and the others.”

Aiko Melendez won a best supporting actress award as the scheming wife of a corrupt mayor in the movie “Iadya Mo Kami.” This time, she’s now the mayor herself in the new afternoon soap, “Wildflower,” with Wendell Ramos as her husband. They’re the couple who oppressed Maja Salvador’s family so Maja will be out to take revenge on them. 

Aiko is doing a lot of physical workout these days so it’s not surprising that she has lost a lot of weight. She has also just finished a new movie, “Balatkayo,” with Polo Ravales for BG Productions. She may be 41 but she certainly looks much younger than her age. No wonder she attracted a much younger foreign boyfriend, but she says they’ve since broken up.

“’Yung mga anak ko ang ka-Valentine ko,” she said. “Si Andre, who’s a teenager na, and Marthena, who’s 9.”

We heard her kids are the reason the relationship with the younger guy did not prosper. 

“I don’t want to go into details pero siempre, basta ang mga anak ko ang concerned, sila pa rin ang mas bibigyan ko ng priority and importance in my life.  May mga bagay talagang hindi mo puedeng ipilit.”

What can she say about her ex-husband Jomari Yllana now being linked to Jean Garcia? 

“Bakit, umamin ba sila na sila na talaga? Hindi naman. Out of respect for Jom, ayokong mag-comment. Ang alam ko may ibang girlfriend siya.”

LJ Reyes knows she will incur the ire of a lot of Julie Anne San Jose fans as she oppresses Julie Ann in the GMA afternoon drama, “Pinulot Ka Lang sa Lupa.” 

“Malalim ang pinag-ugatan ng feud namin ni Julie Anne dito dahil mga bata pa lang kami, we’re already in conflict,” she related. “Tapos, tumindi ito nang magdalaga kami and we become rivals for the attention of our adoptive mom, si Jean Garcia as Diony. I really resent it when Diony gives her more attention. Bukod diyan, naging magkalaban din kami kay Benjamin Alves, who plays our kababata, Efraim. So every time I get a chance, inaapi-api ko rito si Julie Anne.”

In the story, twelve years have passed and Benjamin has become a mixed martial arts fighter who just won his first trophy. His dad, Victor Neri as Cesar, is elated, but had a heart attack and had to be rushed to the hospital. Efraim doesn’t have enough money for the operation of his dad but his estranged mom, Diony, comes in and helps them.

ABS-CBN Star Magic Magic had a thanksgiving party to mark its silver anniversary. It was hosted by Jolina Magdangal and Gretchen Ho and featured several musical numbers. First to do a dance number were Shaina Magdayao, Rayver Cruz, Enchong Dee and the Hashtags. Then came the singing love teams of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, Tommy Esguerra and Miho Nishida, Bailey Mae and Ylona Garcia, Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador, Sofia Andres and Diego Loyzaga, and Joshua Garcia, Julia Barretto and Ronnie Alonte.

This was followed by a song number from hunky guys Matteo Guidicelli, Gerald Anderson, JC de Vera, Ejay Falcon, Jake Cuenca and Sam Milby. Top stars Piolo Pascual, John Lloyd Cruz, Jericho Rosales, Bea Alonzo, Angelica Panganiban and Jodi Sta. Maria then took center stage. The closing number was had Erik Santos, Yeng Constantino, Klarisse, KZ Tandingan, Jonah, Young JV, Matteo G. and Sam M. singing Star Magic’s theme song, “Ikaw ang Magic ng Buhay Ko.”

ABS-CBN Star Magic used to be called Talent Center, formed in 1992 by the network’s then vice president Freddie Garcia with Johnny Manahan as program director, to take care of their own stable of stars, a lot of whom were then in “Ang TV.” 

Star Circle Batch 1 was launched with the late Rico Yan, Regine Tolentino and Victor Neri, followed by Batch 2 with Diether Ocampo, Marvin Agustin, Mylene Dizon and Patrick Garcia who starred in “Gimik.”

We were there when they were launched in Annabel’s and Rembrandt Hotel. Talent Center eventually became Star Magic and if our memory serves us right, they launched a total of 16 batches of new stars.

Many of them have come and gone, some have joined their rival network, but there’s no denying that some of the biggest stars now in showbiz belong to Star Magic.
