New Wonder Woman Costume Altered After Fan Outcry

NBC changed the new Wonder Woman costume when fans reacted negatively when promotional pictures of the new Wonder Woman series first came out. Fans crapped the new look (left photo) saying it's more like a sexy Halloween costume than a uniform of a badass crimefighter. Fans said the pants are too shiny and the heels are too high, and her lipstick is too red!

NBC was quick to act on the matter and now, images of Adrianne Palicki have surfaced (right photo) wearing a different set of costume: from shiny and plastic-looking, the pants look roomier and more like a natural fabric, closely resembling a policeman uniform. The boots are now flat-bottom and the red lipstick is gone!

Does this work for you now?

Mila Kunis Defends Natalie Portman, Slams Black Swan Controversy

Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo Split!



This according to pep.ph:

Almost a year after actor Dennis Trillo declared his love for actress Jennylyn Mercado, the handsome couple have parted ways.

Popoy Caritativo, Dennis's manager, confirmed the news when PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) rang him at 10:04 last night, March 24. He said, "Sa mga mag-boyfriend at mag-girlfriend, maari namang mangyari talaga na maghiwalay, di ba?"

But he refused to elaborate, saying, "Hindi magsasalita yun si Dennis. Kahit nuon naman, di ba? Napaka-ungentleman naman kasi sa guy na magkwento, di ba?" Popoy is referring to Dennis's past controversial romances with beauty queen Carlene Aguilar (with whom he has a son) and sexy star Cristine Reyes.

Meantime, PEP contributor Roldan Castro has sent several messages to Jennlyn's manager, Becky Aguila, asking for confirmation about the parting of ways of the two stars who captured the public's imagination a year back when they, both single parents with sons with past partners, fell in love with each other. The messages were sent last night and this morning.

The information that the two have already been separated for weeks now comes from someone who is a friend to both stars and who believes there is no reason for the public not to know that the two are now free to be with other partners. The source adds, however, that whether one, or both, of the stars will want to get back together is up in the air.

A "SMALL AND MABABAW" FIGHT. The source says that a terrible fight several weeks back led to the breakup. The fight started as "small and mababaw," the source adds, but it apparently brought out the worst in both stars, who ended up hurling hurtful words at each other before angrily stomping out of each other's lives.

The initial information coming in also says that the fight that spelled the end for the relationship had to do with Dennis being "may pagka-seloso" and Jennlyn being "may pagka-immature."

In a jealous fit, Dennis is said to have cursed and humiliated Jen. According to the PEP source, the actor/singer seems to have had a long-standing issue with Patrick Garcia, the father of Jen's only son, still being a presence in Jen's life.

The PEP source explains that Dennis—although Jen has credited him publicly with making her reconciliation with Patrick possible—resented the continuing connection between the two. In the source's words:  "Ang panghihiram ng bata is a big isyu pala with him."

On Jen's part, during the fight the 23-year-old StarStruck "first female survivor" was also losing her temper badly, cursing him, and fighting back. At one point, Jen is said to have physically hit the 29-year-old award-winning actor. 

The same initial information also says that the actor, already heated up by the actress's behavior at the start of the fight, retaliated by cursing her some more, shouting at her to get out of the house, and making certain she got out the door.

According to the PEP source, the words he let loose on her were such "that anyone hearing it would have crumbled. Sakit sobra."

This morning, PEP associate editor Erwin Santiago followed up Popoy Caritativo with calls and text messages to get his client's reaction to the statements made by the PEP source. At press time, Popoy has not responded.

JENNYLYN'S STATEMENT. Today, at 12:30 in the afternoon, PEP contributor Roldan Castro received this text message from Becky Aguila, Jen's manager. The "final official statement" goes [published as is]:

"Yes, it's true. Jen nd dennis broke off last mar 5. It is unfortunate but it can happen to anyone. Jen is heartbroken but she knows she has to move on, not only for herself but also for jazz's [her son] sake. She could use ol d support nd understanding she needs. She's still trying to cope up wid d pain she is going thru and needs time alone. She's hoping to work at d soonest possible time as this will help her forget"

The Enigma of Elizabeth Taylor's Violet Eyes

Since the grand dame of Hollywood has died, there's been an upsurge in web searches for Elizabeth Taylor's violet eyes. Indeed, a lot of people have become curious about Taylor's mysterious beauty. One writer even said, ""What should abruptly stop me in my tracks," he wrote, "but a pair of eyes unlike I've ever beheld, before or since; deep violet eyes of a sort withheld from ordinary mortals that were suddenly looking up into mine from mere inches away."


On Taylor's rare beauty, omg.com reports:

Violet is indeed a rarity, more so than green eyes, although theories as to what makes them purple vary. Color, of course, is determined by how much melanin pigment the eye has and, to get really scientific, those variations in single nucleotide polymorphisms (thankfully shortened to SNPS) near the OCA2 gene, which are responsible for the color of eyes, hair, and skin. Then again, the simplest explanation would be the same one her doctor gave her mother when describing baby Elizabeth's double row of eyelashes: a "mutation," according to the 1996 book Elizabeth.

Zsazsa Gabor hospitalized because of Elizabeth Taylor's death!


The Hungarian-American actress was clearly upset when she heard the news about Elizabeth Taylor's death. Afraid that she was going to be the next to die, Gabor panicked and almost had a heart attack. Yahoo.com reports:
 
LOS ANGELES – Zsa Zsa Gabor's publicist says the shock of Elizabeth Taylor's death made Gabor fear she was next and sent her to the hospital with high blood pressure.

John Blanchette says the 94-year-old celebrity was watching the news Wednesday morning at her Los Angeles home when she learned her friend and one-time neighbor had died. Blanchette says Gabor was inconsolable and commented: "Oh, Jane Russell and Liz Taylor — I'm next." That's a reference to the common myth that celebrity deaths come in threes.
Blanchette says Gabor's blood pressure soared and she was taken to the hospital until Monday evening. Gabor has been in ill health and her right leg was partially amputated in January. But Blanchette calls her a fighter and adds: "She's not going to be the third."

Marian doesn't own a laptop and does not surf the net!

To stay away from bad intrigues, Marian let go of all things that can lead her to get upset, like laptop, the internet, facebook, and twitter. When asked about the recent issue that she fought with someone via twitter, the Kapuso actress replied: "Wala! Wala akong Twitter, wala akong Facebook, hindi nga ako nag-i-Internet, e. Siguro may gumawa lang ng account ko para sirain yung isa, pero hindi ako 'yon."

Marian said that she has stopped using laptops and computers since she started in showbiz, "Hindi din. Simula nung mag-artista ako, tinanggal ko 'yan sa akin. Kasi siyempre, artista, magbabasa ka, masisira ang araw mo pag may nababasa ka. Tinanggal ko 'yan lahat sa akin. Parang may issues man, hindi ko nababasa. May nagsasabi, pero hindi ko nakikita. Tinanggal ko talaga."

Ruffa Guttierez confident na hindi sa kaniya galit si Charo Santos!


 Mula sa pinoyparazzi.com:

Hindi naniniwala si Ruffa Gutierrez na masama ang loob ni Charo Santos sa kanya matapos niyang sabihin na ang kanyang role sa Mga Nagbabagang Bulaklak ay tulad ng kay Miss Charo na may mga hawak na talent at paiikutin niya ang buhay ng kanyang mga talent sa paraang gusto niya, dahil nasa loob ang kanyang kulo. "Naku, I’m sure hindi naman papatulan ni Ma’am Charo ang intrigang ‘yan dahil alam naman niyang hindi gano’n ang gusto kong sabihin. Ang totoo, bakit ko sasabihin sa kanya ‘yon, e ang laki-laki ng respeto ko sa kanya,” sey ng TV host-actress.

Sinabi rin ni Ruffa na totoong kung minsan ay iba ang sinasabi niya sa gusto niyang ipakahulugan. Madalas kasing nangyayari, nakakain ko ang mga word na tamang gamitin at napapalitan ito ng mga linyang hindi gano’n kagandahan, kaya kapag inaatake ako ng gano’n, kung minsan nakakalimutan ko kung ano ang kahulugan nang gusto kong sabihin. But I’m sure, wala ‘yon kay Ma’am Charo dahil wala namang dahilan para magsalita ako ng gano’n sa kanya,” pahayag ni Ruffa habang tuwang-tuwang pinanonood at pinakikinggan ang pagkanta ng dalawang anak.

Chris Brown loses it!

Chris Brown and Rihanna, during happier times

This according to people.com. A shirtless Chris Brown storms out of the Good Morning America studio! People.com reports:

A raging and shirtless Chris Brown stormed out of Good Morning America's Times Square studio Tuesday, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

"He was visibly upset and appeared livid after the interview," the source said, of Brown's being asked about his 2009 felony assault case involving his then-girlfriend Rihanna.

During an interview pegged to the release of his new album F.A.M.E., Brown, 21, told GMA anchor Robin Roberts, "It's not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I'm past that in my life. Today's the album day, so that's what I'm focused on."

Yet when Roberts inquired of the legal issues still stemming from the case, Brown said, "This album is what I want people to hear and people to really get into, so definitely this album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago." After the interview, Brown performed a number, then, according to local affiliate WABC, went into his dressing room, and reportedly screamed and started to tear apart the room. Security reportedly was summoned.

Brown did not perform a second song, as had been scheduled. Instead, he ripped off his shirt – New York temperatures are in the mid-40s Tuesday – and left the building, says WABC.

Reps for Brown did not immediately return calls for comment.

A few hours after the incident, Roberts took to Twitter to comment: "Sure has been an interesting AM @GMA. Still sorting thru everything myself. Just my 2nd day on twitter, wonder what tomorrow will bring?”

Next week, Brown is slated to perform on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.

In December, Brown completed a year-long domestic violence program for his role in the case. He was previously sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community service.

Soon after Tuesday's GMA incident, TMZ reported, Brown Tweeted (before later removing the message): "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t."

He then added two other messages within one minute of each other. They were: "Thank you to everyone who supports my music!!! Key Word (music) !!! Love y'all," as well as, "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"

ABC News, in a statement, said of Tuesday's turn of events: "As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that's what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown."

Kate Middleton's Wedding Day Carriage Revealed

From people.com:

For Kate Middleton, her carriage awaits! And what a grand carriage it is, too.

The horse-drawn coach that will transport her from Westminster Abbey for her first ride as a princess is one fit for a queen – quite literally. The 109-year-old State Landau that has been set aside for Kate and Prince William is the one used mostly by Queen Elizabeth when she is entertaining visiting heads of state.

And, being open-topped, the carriage (which was built for King Edward VII) will give well-wishers a great view of the happy couple as they are taken to Buckingham Palace for the first of their wedding day parties.

Come rain or shine, the palace has a plan. If heavy rain fills the London skies April 29, the couple will instead get to ride in the famous glass Coach, which was used by Princess Diana on her wedding day 30 years ago.

Both carriages were unveiled at Buckingham Palace Monday. So was the car chosen to will bring Kate and her father Michael Middleton to the Abbey: The same Rolls Royce Phantom VI that was attacked by rioters when it was carrying Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, to an event in December.

At the Royal Mews beside the palace, workers were busy preparing it for the big day. Crown Equerry Colonel Toby Browne, who heads the Mews, told reporters, "It's not extensive, it's just minor damage following the incident before Christmas. It will be ready in time. One of the problems [is] it's such a special car [and] there are details that have to be reproduced and are not available off the shelf."

After the ceremony, which will last about an hour, William and Kate's landau will lead a procession of five coaches carrying the Maid of Honor (Kate's sister, Pippa), Best Man Prince Harry and the young pages and bridesmaids. One coach will carry Kate's parents, Carole and Michael, and Prince Charles and Camilla, and another will seat the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.

Sarah Geronimo nakipagbati na kay Cristine Reyes!


 Sa interview ng the Buzz kay Sarah kahapon, masayang ibinalita ng dalaga na siya mismo ang unang gumawa ng paraan para makipagbati kay Cristine. Sinabi ni Sarah kay Boy Abunda na:

"Kasi, Tito Boy, matagal na matagal ko na siyang gustong makausap," simula ng singer-actress. "Pagkatapos ng mga nangyari, pagkatapos ng lahat ng gulo, gusto ko na talagang mag-sorry sa kanya.

"Wala... walang pagkakataon po kasi. At saka, marami rin po ang nagsasabi na masyadong masakit ang nangyari kung ako yung mauuna. Pero ako, sa sarili ko, gustung-gusto ko nang mag-sorry para matapos na, at alam kong nasaktan din siya. Kailangan ko rin mag-apologize.

"Nagmamadali, naiwan po ng makeup artist ko po, si Ken, yung eyeliner ko po [sa dressing room]. Tapos si Mommy [Divine Geronimo], meron din po siyang kinuha, lumabas siya.

"So, sabi ko, "Hmmm, nandiyan si Cristine, puntahan ko na.' Kinuha ko ang eyeliner, sabi ko, 'Manang, samahan mo ako, soli ko lang 'to.'

"Eksakto, palabas si Cristine, so nagkatinginan kami. Parang naano pa siya, na parang umiwas pa siya. Sabi ko, 'Cristine...' Tapos, nagulat siya.

"Siyempre, may takot din sa akin na, 'Ano kaya, tatanggapin kaya niya? Masasaktan kaya ako? Ano kaya ang mangyayari?' So, niyakap ko na lang siya. Hindi ko na siya pinakawalan.

"'Sorry Cristine, wala talaga akong intention... Kaya ko nilapitan si Rayver noon dahil gusto kong makipagbati, gusto kong maipakita sa mga kasamahan ko na wala na. Merry Christmas, Ray, naaalala mo pa ba ako? Sarah.'

"Ganoon lang po. Pero wala akong intention para makipag-flirt sa kanya, walang ganoon po."

Ano naman ang naging reaction ni Cristine sa ginawa niya?

"Sabi niya, 'O, sorry...' Nagulat din ako na na-teary-eyed siya. Sabi niya, 'Sorry rin.' Tapos, nakita rin niya si Mommy, nag-sorry rin po siya kay Mommy.

"And then, I also told her na, 'Cristine, naiintindihan kita, in love ka, e. Nangyari rin sa akin 'yan noon.'"

Ngumiti lamang daw si Cristine nang sabihin ito ni Sarah sa kanya.

Wycelf Jean shot in the hand


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — A spokesman for Wyclef Jean says the hip-hop star has been released from a hospital after being treated for a gunshot wound to his hand.

Joe Mignon, senior program director for Jean's Yele Foundation, says Jean was shot in the hand after 11 p.m. local time Saturday in the city of Delmas, just outside Port-au-Prince.

Jean's brother, Samuel, confirmed the musician was shot. Neither he nor Mignon had additional details.
The shooting comes on the eve of presidential elections in Haiti. Jean is supporting fellow musician Michel Martelly.

A spokesman for the Haitian National Police could not be immediately reached for comment.

Baby James says Isabel Oli and James Yap are dating for realz!

In an interview by Ricky Lo with Kris Aquino and Baby James, the seasoned showbiz writer asked the Queen of all Media what's the real score between Isabel Oli and James Yap. But Kris only said, "I made a promise to James last week na hindi ko talaga pag-uusapan iyan."

And so Ricky Lo asked Baby James instead (who is a child for chrissake! and asking him personal questions just to have showbiz chikas to report to the whole world is kind of an exploitation). 

Ricky: Who's your Papa's girlfriend?
Bimby: Isabel.
Ricky: Isabel who?
Bimby: Isabel lang.

And then Kris butted in:
Kris: Do you want to meet her?
Bimby: No.

Okay Kris Aquino, so much for promising James Yap not to talk about it!

Phil Younghusband answers Angelica Panganiban's tweet


The twitter spat between Angelica Panganiban and a Phil Younghusband fan has already turned into a full-blown war. It all started when Angelica tweeted this:


And then some football fan took offense and went berserk on Angelica:


Amidst all these, Phil Younghusband remains polite and a gentleman. In an interview he says, "I can assure Angelica that we are concentrating right now on playing and focus to win the game against Mongolia. On the other hand, everyone is entitled to their opinions. I have heard she said that we should concentrate to the game and she is right, she is correct."

Angelica Jones, Sinabunutan si Illac Diaz dahil sa semento?!

Yan mismo ay ayon kay Illac Diaz nang kapanayamin siya ng pep.ph

"To tell you the truth, we were there. We sent an official letter to her office. My Shelter Foundation wanted to secure whatever machines, so we sent a letter to her that we are now separating from her office."

Ang dahilan daw ng desisyon nilang humiwalay na sa opisina ni Angelica ay "lack of liquidation" at "lack of transparency."

Dagdag niya, "And then with the billings that she sent us, we could not accept the way she liquidated the funds. So to preserve whatever is left, we wanted to get the machines, we wanted to collect the cement, which we had asked from our donors.

"She sent over a lot of police who where there and then she arrived. And then, when we said we were just taking the cement, she said, 'No, this is ours.'

"And I said, 'No, you sent over two trucks to collect 1,200 bags of cement, we've only seen 400 here. So, as early as now, we would like to secure this. And since this is the property of My Shelter Foundation, no provincial funds... It's very clear that the funds came from us. We wanted to transport them to another secured warehouse," aniya.

"That's when she started hitting me," patuloy na kuwento ni Illac. "She said, 'Wala kang pasalamat.' And then she was saying, 'Don't do this sa bayan ko' and started hitting me.

"And then her mother [came from behind me] and the mother grabbed and pulled my hair. And if the police didn't [intervene], her brother would have punched me, and he was calling me 'bakla.'

"I said, 'Is this the way you treat people who want to donate and volunteer?'  So, I said, 'Ganito ba yung board member n'yo dito sa Laguna? How can somebody in such a position act this way?'

Wow. Really classy.
