Vi remains friends with Angel

Lipa City Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto remains friends with Angel Locsin, the ex-girlfriend of her son Luis Manzano.

However Santos-Recto failed to mention in a recent interview if she and Angel are still in touch, but they worked together in the Star Cinema movie, “Everything About Her,” shown in January 2016. 

Rep. Vi is aware that Luis is now romancing Jessy Mendiola. She shared that Luis even brings Jessy along every time he visits.

Luis stays in their former family residence in Green Meadows.

“Rep. Vi seems to have given the property to Luis,” a confidant of the actress-politician told us.


It’s kind of a big challenge, said Ronwaldo Martin when told that he could end up as popular and as good an actor as his elder brother, Coco Martin, who is dubbed as local TV’s “Primetime King,” thanks to the consistent high rating of his show, “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” which has been on air for more than one year.

Ronwaldo gave a convincing portrayal of a petty thief who teams up with Raymond Francisco, who plays a gay conman, in the much-talked about “Bhoy Intsik,” under the helm of ace director Joel Lamangan.

“My biggest moment in the movie was my confrontation with RS,” said Ronwaldo, “Everyone knows how good of an actor he is.”

Francisco won the best actor trophy, tied with “Kristo’s” Kristopher King, at the Sinag Maynila Gabi ng Parangal last March 11. The seasoned actor is the son of lawyer-actor Rudy Francisco, now 94 years old, and nephew of the late Sampaguita Pictures’ leading man, Fred Montilla.


Ronwaldo said he was fired up when he learned he had been chosen for “Bhoy Intsik.”

“Specially when RS told me that I was not just his choice, but also Direk Joel’s and Direk Ronald Carballo’s (who wrote the story and script of ‘Bhoy Instik.’),” he recalled.

And how did his Kuya Coco react when he told him about it?

“He told me, ‘Your life is about to change. Kaya pagbutihin mo’,” said Ronwaldo. “Make sure also that you remain humble and thankful to all those who have helped you and will help you.”


It’s now confirmed that the breakup between Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla and actress Jodi Sta. Maria is for real. She was noticeably absent at the 29th birthday celebration of Jolo.

“Instead of holding a party, naghanda siya ng pa-breakfast sa mga batang naninirahan sa iba’t ibang barangay sa Bacoor City, kung saan mayor ang mommy niya, si Lani Mercado. Mayor Lani was there to help him,” related a staff of Jolo’s. “The day before his birthday, Vice Gov. Jolo visited his dad, ex-Senator Bong Revilla, at the PNP Custodial Center, where, to date, he is still detained with good friend, ex-Senator Jinggoy Estrada.”

When asked what the young politician wishes for his natal day, he said, “Ang maging of good service lalo sa mga constituents ko sa Cavite.”

Good luck, Vice Gov. Jolo.


Meanwhile, Mayor Lani’s birthday wish for Jolo is for him to find a life partner.

“I pray that he meets the right girl. One na uunawain at mamahalin siya for what he is, for what he can offer her,” she said.

She refused to comment about the breakup of her son and Jodi.

“Basta ang maipagmamalaki ko, naming ng aking asawa na si Bong tungkol kay Jolo, mabait siya,” she said. “Napakabait at napaka matulungin.”


Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson promised to put the past behind them, now that their series, “Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin” is about to air.

It’s an open book that their separation was far from cordial. To make matters worse, Gerald fell for Maja Salvador, who was, at one time, the best friend of Kim. Of course, Gerald and Maja are no longer together and he is said to be madly in love with Bea Alonzo now. Kim, on the other hand, is singing beautiful music with Xian Lim.

It’s only Maja who has remained single. But she is not really in a hurry to fall in love, as she is currently busy with the series, “Wildflower,” where she plays the lead.
