Chiz Escudero tells Kris Aquino that his marriage is facing tough challenges



ON HIS PERSONAL AND FAMILY LIFE. Kris observed that during his guesting on her show, Senator Chiz often talked about his kids but made no mention of his wife of ten years, Christine Elizabeth "Tintin" Flores.

When asked regarding the status of his marriage, the Senator meaningfully remarked, "Tulad ng ilan, maraming pinagdaraanang pagsubok ang sinuman sa buhay pamilya. Ano man ang magiging dulo noon, ang  kakahihinatnan noon, siguro panahon lang ang pwedeng magsabi. Ang importante, naandoon, inaalagaan ang mga anak ninyo at hindi napapabayaan. Siguro, panahon lang at tadhana ang makakapagsabi  ang mangyayari sa mga susunod na araw, linggo, buwan. At ayokong lagyan ng tuldok 'yon."

Kris asked  "Suffice to say, you are taking care of the kids?"

Senator Chiz answered, "Yes. Maayos naman sila at hindi sila mawawalan ng pagmamahal ng nanay nila at hindi din sila mawawalan ng pagmamahal ng tatay nila."

He further added, "Pero magiging perpekto at gagawang buhat perpekto 'yon 'pag lumaki silang tama at maayos...At nakasalalay yon sa mga magulang. Di lang isa..dalawa..."

Just like former President Corazon Aquino, Kris is a single parent. She believes that just like her mom, she can both be a father and mother figure to her two sons: Joshua and Bimby.

Senator Chiz pointed out, "Ang ala-ala man 'yon, ang aktwal na presensiya. Mga salita pa minsan-minsan Ang importante ang imahe, pigura ng ama sa buhay nila. Ang pigura ng ina sa buhay nila..."

ON BEING TEASED TO KRIS. Senator Chiz playfully told Kris his theory why they are being linked together. "May teoriya ako kung bakit tayo nachi-chismis. Chiz ako, miss ka." His remark reduced Kris to giggles and caused the audience to cheer loudly.

Turning serious, Kris asked him how he sees himself  fifteen  years from now.

Senator Chiz answered, "Sa career, wala na sa pulitika. Siguro nagtuturo kung babalik ako sa pagtuturo. Mas madalas sa probinsiya. Ang buhay pamilya, gaya ng sabi ko, ayokong tuldukan, ayokong i-predict kung ano ang mangyayari. Ang importante, pansamantala, masaya at okay ang mga anak ko. Maganda naman ang relasyon ko sa lahat ng malalapit sa akin, na tinuturi kong malapit sa akin."

Kris learned something significant from her conversation with the senator  She conveyed "Yung virtue of being true to yourself at pagiging simple."

Derek Ramsay is Married!

And not to Angelica Panganiban, mind you. Rumor has it that Derek Ramsay married a Fil-Indian model in the States 9 years ago and they still aren't separated! So that's why he and Angelica refuse to comment every time they're asked about marriage coz a Fil-Indian model hinders them from having one!

It was ABS-CBN who uncovered Derek's dirty little secret and the management is planning to release it via TV Patrol. Because of this brouhaha, Derek threatened to leave ABS-CBN if TV Patrol pushes with their plan of showing the report nationwide.

He is supposed to guest at the Gandang Gabi Vice late night show but canceled at the last minute because of the news.

Tsk. What happens to Angelica now? Does she even know this?


Andi Eigenmann is Pregnant !


Showbiz reporters confirmed that Andi Eigenmann is pregnant and that the father is Erap's son Jake Ejercito! Whut?!



Marian Rivera breaks her silence about rumored rift with Heart Evangelista: "Akala ko maayos kami, yun pala, para sa kanya hindi.


Sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon ay nagsalita na si Marian Rivera sa pinag-uusapang away diumano nila ni Heart Evangelista. Kaninang tanghali, June 23, ay ginanap ang grand presscon para sa pelikulang Temptation Island ng Regal Entertainment at GMA Films sa mezzanine ng Imperial Palace Suites sa Tomas Morato, Quezon City.

Kasama sa cast sina Marian at Heart, pero wala ang huli sa presscon dahil kasalukuyan itong nagbabakasyon sa Brazil, kasama ang boyfriend na si Daniel Matsunaga. Kaya ang kasamang humarap ni Marian sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang press ay sina Rufa Mae Quinto, Lovi Poe, Solenn Heussaff, Tom Rodriguez, Mikael Daez, at John "Sweet" Lapus. Wala rin si Aljur Abrenica na nasa Singapore naman daw ngayon.

"NAGULAT AKO." Noong una ay iniwasan ng cast na mapag-usapan ang tungkol sa nangyaring insidente diumano sa airport, kung saan kinumpronta raw ng ina ni Heart na si Mrs. Cecile Ongpauco si Marian. Pero hindi na rin naiwasang sagutin ni Marian ang isyu nang tanungin siya ng PEP contributor na si Gorgy Rula, na sinundan pa ng ibang mga tanong mula sa entertainment press.
Isa pa, konektado naman ito sa Temptation Island dahil galing sa shooting ang buong cast nang mangyari ang insidente. Bago sabihin ang kanyang panig tungkol sa isyu ay humingi muna ng dispensa si Marian sa producers ng Temptation Island at sa mga kasamahan niyang artista.

"Alam n'yo, sa totoo lang din, ayokong mapag-usapan 'to dito dahil bilang respeto sana kila Mother [Lily Monteverde], sa GMA, dahil ang ano kasi... Di ba, kapag pelikula, dapat puro positive ang pinag-uusapan? Pero hihingi din talaga ako ng dispensa na may mga ganitong issues, di ba? Pasensiya na. Pero bilang naungkat na 'yan, ang pagkakaalam ko kasi, at hindi lang din naman ako—lahat ng cast, staff and crew, pati yung direktor—maayos kaming lahat. Sobrang nag-usap kami, naging okay kaming lahat... Sorry, ida-drop ko yung name ni Lovi, pero nandun siya. Nag-usap kami, wala naman kaming pinag-awayan. Wala talaga. And hindi kami nag-away, walang anything na nangyari. Yun na nga lang, pagdating doon sa airport, nagulat ako," saad ni Marian.

Kung sinasabi niyang walang away na nangyari sa pagitan nila ni Heart, bakit may ganung insidente sa airport? Nagkaroon ba sila ng pagtatalo ni Heart? Walang away na nangyari, yun talaga ang totoo," diin ni Marian. "Siguro misunderstanding ng magkaibigan. Pero sa nangyari do'n sa airport, parang hindi yata niya ako kaibigan. Parang nagulat lang ako na bakit nagkaroon ng ganun, e, pag-alis namin galing Laoag, maayos kaming lahat, masasaya kaming lahat. So, medyo nagulat lang din ako na pagdating ko ng airport, may mga ganung nangyari. Na kahit ako, parang na-shock ako na... Buti nandun si Lovi sa tabi ko para i-comfort niya ako sa mga nangyari... Alam n'yo na 'yon kung ano ang nangyari."

"WALANG AWAY NA NANGYARI." Wala bang ginawa si Heart pagkatapos ng insidente? Nagkausap na ba sila tungkol dito?

"Hindi, hindi kami nagkita, hindi kami nag-usap. Wala talaga. Yun ang point do'n, e, akala ko kasi maayos kami. Yun pala hindi para sa kanya. Nagulat lang din ako."

So, hindi na-settle ang isyu sa kanila bago umalis si Heart papuntang Brazil?

"Hindi, okay kami. Yun ang ipinu-point ko—maayos kami. Wala ngang issue, walang away na nangyari. Nagulat na lang ako na pagdating dito, ganun ang nangyari," saad ni Marian.

Masama ba ang loob niya? Na-trauma ba siya sa bodyguards, na sinasabing dala-dala ng mommy ni Heart nang sunduin nito ang anak sa airport?

"Next time, kung 15 ang dala nila, ako siguro mga isandaang bakla ang dadalhin ko para ipagtanggol ako!" medyo natatawa niyang sabi. Pero ani Marian, "Kasi ang hirap din magbuhat ng sariling bangko na eto ang nangyari, ganito ang nangyari. "Siguro itanong n'yo na lang 'yan sa mga cast—sorry, ha—sa cast na nandoon, mga crew na nandoon. "Sila mismo ang magpapatunay kung ano talaga ang nangyari. Kung ano ang ginawa ko at kung ano ang ginawa nila."

Ano ang nararamdaman niya ngayon?

"Sa nangyari sa airport? Laking pasasalamat ko sa Diyos na pinalaki ako ng lola ko na may respeto sa nakatatanda sa akin," sagot ni Marian.

Noli de Castro says guests to Miriam-Jun Santiago's wedding are plastic!

 
When TV Patrol did a story about the 40th anniversary wedding of Miriam Defensor and Jun Santiago, which was attended by a lot of politicians including Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Erap Estrada, Noynoy Aquino and Loren Legarda, Mar Roxas, and Jojo Binay (wtf!), Kabayan Noli de Castro, who definitely wasn't invited lest he wouldn't be griping about it, said something  like "Magagalit ang DENR niyan, madaming plastic!"

Jackass' star Ryan Dunn dies in fiery car crash


"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn, who along with his cast mates made Americans cringe and snicker through vulgar stunts in their multimillion-dollar TV and movie franchise, was killed early Monday in a fiery car crash. He was 34.

Dunn, a daredevil who gained notoriety for diving into a sewage tank and performing other unsavory stunts, was driving his 2007 Porsche in suburban Philadelphia when it careered off the road, flipped over a guardrail and crashed into the woods before bursting into flames. A passenger was also killed, and speed may have been a factor in the crash, West Goshen Township police said.

The force of impact shattered the vehicle into several twisted and blackened pieces, leaving the Porsche 911 GT3 unrecognizable except for a door that was thrown from the crash and not incinerated. A 100-foot-long tire skid marked where the car left the roadway.

Both Dunn and his passenger were severely burned. Police said they were able to identify Dunn through his tattoos and hair, but the identity of his passenger was still unknown.

Dunn appeared on MTV shows "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam" and the three "Jackass" big-screen adaptations. He also was the star of his own MTV show, "Homewrecker," and just began hosting the show "Proving Ground" on the G4 cable network.

Chiz escudero's Wife now dating dancer Jason Zamora!



Say whut? From politician to dancer, Chiz Escudero's wife, Christine Escudero, now opts for someone limber and perhaps more acrobatic in bed! Jason Zamora is a member of dance group Maneuvers and the brother of Joshua Zamora who now lives in with ex-Sexbomb girl Jopay Paguia. Classy!

As my usual line goes, IS THIS FOR REALZ? The unlikely couple have apparently called it quits just before Cannes Film Festival, where Sean was seen with two hot babes, none of whom are Scarlett! Well, this sucks. And to think that Scarlett dumped hottie Ryan Reynolds for this wrinkly, old man!
