Gandang-ganda si Matteo Guidicelli sa bagong style ng buhok ni Sarah Geronimo.
Are the two of them on? Members of the entertainment press asked him sa farewell presscon of his series with Andi Eigenmann, Galema: Anak ni Zuma.
The articulate and gallant Matteo merely smiled. He maintained though that he has high regards for Sarah’s parents na balitang kinu-consider daw siyang ‘‘anathema’’ (disliked).
Si Andi naman was asked kung hindi ba siya napapagod since ’di pa naman naglala-last airing ang supposed to end na niyang series na Galema (March 28 mapapanood ang last episode nito), she has started taping na for Dyesebel, where this time, she plays kontrabida to Anne Curtis, the title roler.
‘‘Hindi po. If at all I’m grateful that I’m getting assignments one after the other. I want to save for the future of my daughter Elle (who turned two years old last February).
‘‘It’s common knowledge na I’m a single parent,’’ susog pa ni Andi.
Simultaneous with Galema, we all know as well na nag-shooting din si Andi for ABNKKBSANPLAko?! with Jericho Rosales as her leading man.
Produced by Viva Films, Andi said she’s happy the film did well at the tills.
Manay Ichu nagpapagaling na
Good to hear, Salve A., that Manay Ichu Maceda is up and about na. In fact, she’s now inviting people close to her to visit in her hospital room.
She misses them daw, lalo na ang kanyang mga ‘‘dabarkads,’’ who’ll surely miss her, too, at the birthday celebration of her Shirley Kuan, Veanna Fores, Girlie Rodis, and Anes (daughter of Dolor) on Saturday.
Manay Ichu, as fellow PM columnist Lolit Solis in her column Startalk wrote, suffered a heart attack and had to submit to angioplasty.
She’s currently undergoing treatment for her kidney naman.
Well, Manay Ichu’s friends are all praying she will totally recover soon.
Society writer kailangan ng dasal
Another good friend who needs prayers, too, is Donnie Ramirez, who also writes about the movies, though only occasionally, but more about the people of high society.
Donnie, according to Ricky Lo, suffered a fall and sustained blood clots in the brain.
Ricky said though, that his informer would not confirm reports if Donnie fell into a coma before or after brain surgery.
Did we hear it right that Dr. Elenita Binay, former Makati Mayor and the better half of Vice President Jojo Binay, is one among his friends who closely keep watch over Donnie?
Bless you, Dra. Binay.
Alex magso-solo sa The Voice
If reports going around have it that Alex Gonzaga will no longer play minor co-host with Robi Domingo to her elder and only sister Toni Gonzaga at the The Voice of the Philippines season two, it is because she will reportedly co-host with Luis Manzano the kid’s version, The Voice of the Philippines Kids.
Soon to become as busy as Toni, Alex will start taping na rin for Our Love, which, according to Mark Gil, one of the ‘‘powers’’ behind the production, will also star Yen Santos, Joseph Marco, Arjo Atayde, and Yam Concepcion.
Toni is a mainstay as well of the gag shows Banana Nite and Banana Split Extra Scoop.
