Why Ai Ai refuses to talk about Kris A.

REGINE Velasquez celebrates her 30th anniversary in showbiz with a two-night concert, “R3.0,” at SM MOA Arena on October 21 and 22. “I feel so blessed and thankful that after 30 years, I’m still here and given the chance to celebrate my anniversary with a concert and with three new albums.”

What does she think are the highlights of her 30 year career? 

“Naku, marami. But isang ‘di ko makalimutan was when I won sa Asia Pacific Singing Contest kasi after that I did my first major concert sa Folk Arts Theater. Then doing the movie ‘Wanted Perfect Mother’ that started my acting career. Wala na akong mahihiling pa kasi lahat naman ng dinasal ko, binigay ni Lord sa akin, from my family to all the people who helped me in my career through the years.”

Is there anything she regrets or wants to change? 

“Wala akong gustong baguhin o balikan. Siempre, may heartaches and disappointments, but they all helped in making what I am now.”

Her husband Ogie Alcasid will be a guest in her concert, what about their son Nate? Do  she and Ogie expect him to follow in their footsteps? 

“No expectations. He can be whatever he wants to be. He sings, but mas malaki pa rin ang interest niya sa aviation.” 

We tell her she has a potential to be a good actress like other singers who became award-winning actresses (her “Lobo” episode in MMK attests to this), but she seems to be more partial in doing comedies even on TV. “I’m a singer first, na nabigyan ng chance to act at mag-host.

But in my heart, I will always be a singer muna. Ang hirap kayang magdrama. But Viva is planning to give me a movie at kung maganda talaga ang material, okay lang sa’king magdrama.”

As part of her 30th anniversary, Regine is also releasing a triple album. The first is “Renditions” featuring 10 covers of songs she has done in past concerts but has never recorded, like Up Dharma Down’s “Tadhana” that became a big hit single. The second is “Rise” with 10   original songs led by “Hugot,” a great ballad that is a classic in the making. The third is “Reflections,” songs she has done before but given new updated versions, like “You Are My Song,” Dadalhin” and “Kung Maibabalik Ko Lang.” This is all under Viva Records of Boss Vic del Rosario.

Ai Ai delas Alas no longer wants to talk about her former friend, Kris Aquino, and whether or not she will invite Kris to her wedding in December. “Ayoko na talagang pag-usapan ‘yan, kasi anuman ang sabihin ko, parang negative ang labas,” she said. “So favor, please, huwag na lang po. Baka mapagbintangan pa akong ginagamit siya sa promo ng bago kong movie na ‘Bes and the Beshies,’ hindi naman siya kasama rito. I hope you understand kasi parang lagi kaming pinagsasabong para may mapag-usapan. Sa edad ko ngayon, ayoko na ng anumang negativity sa katawan. Very positive ang mga nangyayari sa buhay ko at the moment. May bago akong TV show with Bossing Vic Sotto, may bago akong movie na ‘Bes and the Beshies,’ tapos ikakasal na ako, so let’s just all be positive and happy para hindi pumasok ang negativity sa anumang aspeto ng buhay natin.” 

Her last movie shown earlier this year, “Our Mighty Yaya,” as a big hit at the tills and it’s a solo project for her. So why did she now accept doing “Bes and the Beshies” when there are four of them as lead characters, along with Zsa Zsa Padilla, Carmi Martin and Beauty Gonzalez? 

“Okay lang ‘yun. Alam nyo ba kung gaano kalaki ang pressure kapag solo mo lang dinadala ang pelikula? Habang papalapit ang playdate, papalakas nang papalakas ang kaba ng dibdib mo. Hindi gaya rito, apat kaming magtutulong-tulong para dalhin ang movie sa takilya.

Tinanggap ko rin ito kasi ngayon ko lang makakasama ‘yung mga kasama ko rito.  Siempre, gusto ko rin namang silang makatrabaho, at hindi ako nagkamali kasi masaya kami talaga sa shooting. I’m really very proud of this movie na nakakatawa na, meron pang magandang message about life, about friendship, about woman empowerment so panoorin nyo sa October 18 at ‘di kayo magsisisi.”

Marian Rivera and her long-lost sister played by Kim Domingo in “Super Ma’am” finally meet each other again, but Marian’s character Minerva doesn’t have an inkling that Kim’s Avenir is her sibling. Kim got lost when an earthquake in the mountains killed their mom (Dina Bonnevie) and she grew up under the care of Greta (Jackielou Blanco), the leader of the evil Tamawos. 

Greta even sent Kim to India for training. Now, it’s Kim who is assigned to have a showdown with Minerva. In the next episodes, they will have very physical confrontations and both Marian and Kim trained in the martial arts and fight routines to make sure they will be ready to do their action scenes themselves, without needing a double. 

“Pareho nilang ayaw magpatalbog sa isa’t isa,” said the show’s director, L.A. Madridejos. “Hahanga ka kay Marian kasi fit na fit pa rin at maliksi ang katawan. Hindi mo iisiping may baby na siya kasi nakaka-wow talaga ang bawat eksena niya. Tututukan mo talaga ang fight scenes nila ni Kim dahil very exciting ang dating on screen.”

Heart Evangelista goes daring wearing a sexy black swimsuit showing off her ample cleavage in a revealing episode this week of GMA-7’s hit primetime romcom, “My Korean Jagiya.” The scene shows her having a showdown in a swimming pool with the show’s kontrabida, Valeen Montenegro, who’s in a two-piece bikini. But the scene is treated more as a comedy since Heart, in her role as the kooky Gia, trips  while sashaying on the poolside, much to her embarrassment. 

The show’s director, Mark Reyes, has nothing but praises for Heart. 

“She’s a real pro, kahit anong ipagawa mo, kahit mapahiya siya, gagawin niya basta sa ikagaganda ng show,” he says. “And the scene showing na natalisod siya habang rumarampa sa may pool turned out to be really funny. We never thought she’d be truly effective in this kind of
hilarious vehicle kasi mas kilala siya in doing heavy dramas before. She even shows great comic timing in delivering her punchlines.”

Facebook’s constant state of denial

Disloyalty

By REY O. ARCILLA | January 23, 2018
‘Locsin should just concentrate on learning and doing his job instead of contradicting his President which smacks of disloyalty. If he can’t do that, he should resign out of delicadeza, that is, if Digong has indeed compelling reasons not to fire him.’
