They look alike, only Xian is taller than Yorme.
It’s Xian Lim who will play the role of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno in a bioflick to be directed by Joven Tan.
“Magkahawig sila,” said an observer. “Mas matangkad nga lang si Xian.
“Maganda ang kuwento ng buhay ni Mayor Isko (real surname Dumagoso),” added the observer, “As we all know, he came from humble beginnings, but thanks to the late ‘master showman’ German Moreno, Mayor Isko made an effort to improve himself.
“Not only did Mayor Isko try to be a good performer, nagpatuloy din siya ng pag-a-aral. Kaya bukod sa nagtapos siya ng college dito, kumuha rin siya ng special courses abroad. The rest of, of course, is history.
“But one thing na pinatunayan ni Mayor Isko, hindi hadlang ang kahirapan, para umasenso ang isang tao. It all depends pa rin sa taong concerned. Magandang ehemplo siya sa kabataan,” the observer added.
Is the film in preparation for Mayor Isko’s run for higher office in 2022 election?
Two grand weddings we can look forward to this year are the nuptials of Tom Rodriguez and Carla Abellana and Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert.
Tom and Carla were officially engaged in October 2020.
“Ang planong wedding daw ni Tom na ibigay kay Carla ay grand in the true sense of the word,” said a kibitzer. “Kaya grand din ang attendance.”
The kibitzer continued: “Ang ganda ng engagement ring na bigay ni Tom kay Carla.
Stunningly impressive would be an apt description for the ring.”
Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert welcomed their daughter last March 15.
The couple have been together for six years. They met while participating in the talent reality competition “Artista Academy” on TV5.
Following the footsteps of his sexy lola, Rosanna Roces, is Leone Adriano.
Leone is the 12-year-old son of Onyok, Rosanna’s son. He has yet to have an assignment, but that is, the boy already has a management team – the Dragon Talent Management.
Meanwhile, Rosanna’s other grandson, Jose Gabriel, son of her daughter Grace, is already 16 years old and stays with his dad, Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla.
Handsome and articulate like his Daddy Jolo, Gab has no ambition to become an actor.
Gab’s mother, Grace, has her own family. His dad, Jolo, tied the knot with beauty queen Angelika Alita in California last year.
Meanwhile, Jolo’s parents are both actors and politicians, Sen. Ramon Revilla, Jr. and Mayor Lani Mercado.
Rosanna has a new movie, “Revirginized,” with Sharon Cuneta and Marco Gumabao.
“Revirginized” is produced by Viva Films under director Daryll Yap.
The project signals Sharon’s homecoming to Viva, where she started her career.
“Kaya sabik ako,” Sharon admitted. “Lalo’t bago ang role ko sa pelikula. “Like Rosanna, may mga maituturing akong ‘bold’ scenes dito na nakaka excite at nakakanerbyos.
“I have a love scene with Marco, for one. And how old is Marco?” she asked.
Well, Marco is 26, while Sharon is 55.
Rosanna, who is 48, is happy with her lesbian partner Blessy Arias.
Rosanna and Blessy were classmates before.
“She tamed me,” said Rosanna of Blessy.
