From Ricky Lo, good friend and entertainment editor of PhilipÂpine Star: â€œYou might want to include prayers for fast recovery of Mrs. Louella Chiu, Kim Chiuâ€™s mom, whoâ€™s in coma due to stroke I think.
That message came from my friend sa PAL where Kim Chiuâ€™s sister is training as flight attendant.â€
Pakiusap: Letâ€™s all pray for her.
It will be recalled that for sometime now, Kim has revealed in interviews that she and her siblings have not seen their mom since she and their dad left them sa care ng kanilang lola on her fatherâ€™s side.
It was their lola, according to Kim, who sent them to school. They were then based in Cebu City. Kuwento pa rin ni Kim dahil her lola owned daw a clothing store, kapag wala siyang klase ay siya ang natotokang kahera.
It was just for fun when she, along with her classmates, joined the audition for the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Teen Edition that later won her the title champ. It became her passport to where she is now.
Only a few months ago, in an interview uli, binanggit ni Kim how happy she and her siblings were when after a long time ay nagkita rin sila ng kanyang ama nang minsang nagkaroon sila ng isang personal appearance commitment ni Xian Lim sa Mindoro. Doon na nakatira ang kanyang ama at ang pamilya nito.
Sa pagkakataong iyon, nagkikita sila ng kanyang mga kapatid sa kanyang ama.
Kamakailan lang, ayon pa rin kay Kim, dinalaw sila ng magkakaÂpatid at lola nila, pati na rin mga kapatid ng kanyang ama, dito sa Maynila.
Robbie hinahasa sa hosting
Robbie Domingo, former Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) housemate, is slowly but surely getting to be an effective TV host. No wonder na ABS-CBN is giving him assignment which obviously will enhance more his TV hosting talent.
Already, a co-host nina Dimples Romana at Xian Lim sa Saturday morning reality show, I Shine Promil Camp 2, he is also a co-host nina Toni at Alex Gonzaga in The Voice of the Philippines.
Then, we heard, that he will also serve bilang co-host din nina Iza Calzado at Xian again sa The Biggest Loser: Pinoy Edition which will air its second season soon.
Before his PBB stint, Robbie, in a previous interview revealed that he was deadset on becoming a doctor. This explains why he took up psychology at the Ateneo University.
But obviously, Robbie has had a change of heart.
Kaya, Robbie, good luck! Iza nagpapapayat pa para sa Biggest Loser
Speaking of Iza Calzado, in preparation of her hosting The Biggest Loser, she decided to lose more weight. Na kitang-kita nang maging host siya kasama sina Richard Gomez at Xian Lim sa katatapos na Urian Awards na ginanap sa NBC Tent ng The Fort, Taguig City.
Hindi ipinagkakaila ni Iza that when she was younger, sobrang taba niya. Hanggang sa siyaâ€™y maging teenager.
It was she decided to join showbiz na nagsimula siyang magbawas ng timbang.
Iza is elder of the two children (the other is a boy) ng ngayoâ€™y namayapa nang choreographer ng TV na si Lito Calzado.
