Missing Vice Ganda

The noontime show It’s Showtime is indeed lackluster every time Vice Ganda is not around.

But in the spirit of fairness, some of its hosts are equally competent and entertaining though they do lack the wit and humor of a Vice Ganda.

And as an added observation, these hosts seem to showcase each other’s prowess instead of working as a group to achieve “real fun and entertainment.”

“Para bang ang bawat isa ay gustong magpapansin,” observed a colleague who also agrees to our noticing of each host not paying attention to what the other is saying or expressing.

“Eh di mawawala nga o maiiba ang flow of thought ng message or conversation kapag mas pinaiiral nila ang pagiging individualistic nila. Pati yung pagpapatawa, nawawala kasi nga, nagka-kanya-kanya sila. Nawawala yung listening well and natural bantering/reacting to things,” added another.

But the more nagging observation, which most of us agree on and that also applies to other live shows like Eat Bulaga, ASAP, Sunday Pinasaya and Wowowin, is the way newbies are given exposure to host a segment or a portion.

“Susme talaga, ni hindi yata ma-differentiate ng mga pinahahawak ng microphone ang mga simpleng letters like “B, V, F and P. Hindi pa kasama yung pagiging trying hard nila to convey messages and their murdering of either Filipino or English language.”

Can their management give them a lesson or two on the basics of hosting? It is really too irritating and insulting to hear and see them murder the things that we have learned and was taught to us to be correct, proper and appropriate.

Nakakahiya naman sa mga nag-aaral di ba?


Aljur Abrenica is being talked about not for his projects in the biz but for his lack of it.

Just very recently, he was the subject of our friend who reminded him of his reportedly balance in his payment for the house sold to him years back.

It intrigued a lot us since Aljur has no projects to depend on so he can pay such debt.

Last month, he got into this family controversy when he reportedly and allegedly favored his partner Kylie Padilla to move into their house and let his mother and sister and even brother Vin to look for their own places to live?

And as we write this, there’s this news on his supposedly “expired” contract with GMA Network that wasn’t renewed. 

Hala, there’s this rumor that he is being replaced by a newbie hunk in this very interesting project due to his non-communication with the businessmen-producers who want his services?

Tsk, tsk, tsk..


When Erich Gonzales attended the premiere night of Northern Lights last Wednesday, it was reported that she was on a solo flight mode.

While that is true, that is also half incorrect according to our source.

“She just wanted to show the world that she has moved on from her failed relationship with Daniel Matsunaga. That she can face the people and display her sexiness and beauty,” said our source.

But the truth of the matter is, according to this same source, “There is a very good looking man waiting for her outside. And obviously, hindi basta lalaki lang yun kasi halatang may something sila.”

It has been reported that there is this very good looking guy from a well-off family who constantly visits and hangs out with Erich.

This guy, said to come from a political family and though is still in the process of annulling his previous marriage, is believed to have been so smitten by Erich’s charms, her natural sense of humor included.

“Siguro yun ang rason kung bakit hindi pa sila puwedeng magdisplay in public ng basta-basta. Mayroon pang mga legalities. But it seems, mas serious ang involvement nila sa isa’t-isa dahil they are practically together at any given time,” revealed our source.

Our highly placed source also confirmed with us that this rich and very good-looking guy was once the boyfriend of this popular sexy actress.

Hmmm...mahilig sa artista at magaganda huh!
