Xian Lim had his first painting exhibit din sa isang kilalang gallery sa Makati.
And guess what? All of his paintings were sold out. Expertise niya raw ang portrait. And his dreams is to, one day daw paint a portrait of his favorite leading lady, Kim Chiu.
Xian and Kim are teamed up in the upcoming series, The Story of Us, which Star Creatives, headed by ABS-CBN Business Unit head, Malou Santos, produced.
Three years ago mula nang magtambal sina Kim at Xian sa isang series. Ito’y sa Ina, Kapatid, Anak.
Nakatanggap ng magagandang reviews si Xian, to the delight of course, of Kim, sa kasalukuyan pa ring ipinalalabas niyang pelikula, ang Everything About Her, with Vilma Santos and Angel Locsin. Directing the movie, na produced ng Star Cinema, which has for its managing director, Malou Santos, is Joyce Bernal.
Speaking of Angel, she was in her neck brace when she dubbed for a new TV commercial, isa sa kanyang endorsements.
She also just renewed her endorsement contract sa isang kilalang make-up line.
Binanggit ni Angel na she’s going back to Singapore, yes, for another treatment of her spinal injury. And, hopefully daw, it’s her last “visit” na to her doctor sa nasabing bansa.
To date, whispers going around say na sa kanya pa rin finally “mapupunta” ang top role bilang Darna. To which Angel would rather not comment.
Tahimik din si Angel tungkol sa issue between her and Luis Manzano. Bagama’t madalas silang magkita, since they are together in the twice a week (weekends) reality show, Pilipinas Got Talent (PGT), Angel bilang juror, together with former ABS-CBN President Freddie Garcia, Robin Padilla and Vice Ganda.
Luis, together with Billy Crawford, co-hosts PGT.
Type naming napapanood daily, lately ha, si Joey Marquez, bilang isa sa mga host ng noontime variety program on ABS-CBN, It’s Showtime. Bagay na bagay siya sa segment na pahulaan portion ng hanapbuhay, since feel na feel mo na nakikipag-symphatize siya sa mga contestant, na pawang mababang klase ang kinabibilangang trabaho, yet maipagmamalaki. Sabi nga ni Joey, honest way of making a living.
Hangang-hanga kami sa nagtitinda ng fish ball na nakapagpatapos na ng dalawang anak sa kolehiyo and yet, patuloy pa rin sa kanyang paghahanap-buhay, na nakasanayan na niya sa loob ng 15 years.
Sana, tuparin ni Joey and company ang pangako nilang bibigyan ito ng bagong push cart.
In the case of Nadia Montenegro, who was the guest star na nahulaan ang uri ng hanapbuhay ng contestant, she needs to be given a pat on the shoulder, since ang supposedly na napanalunan niyang prize worth P20,000 ay ipinamahagi na lang niya sa nanalong fish vendor at mga fellow contestants nito, na isang street sweeper, janitor at farmer.
Napapanood daily, weekdays, si Nadia sa series na Tubig at Langis at game program na Deal or No Deal, bilang brief case beauty naman.
Guess where former Fidel Ramos had his book launched recently?
