Viva singer repackages herself with sensual image
STAR CIRCUIT - Ricky L. Calderon (The Freeman) - January 22, 2020 - 12:00am

Viva contract artist Marione (she has dropped the Aunor from her name) is making a big transformation this 2020.

“Time for change,” said the daughter of former singer Lala Aunor who is taking her singing career into another level by packaging herself as a sensual singer. Splashed in social media are Marione’s sexy photos, in preparation for the launch of her second single under Viva Records.

“Since the songs that I sing border on the sensual then I might as well match the song with a new image,” said Marione who believes that the timing is just right for her to repackage.

She didn’t have second thoughts when she was advised by Daddie Wowie Roxas to change her looks. Daddie Wowie is the best friend of her mom and she trusts him, just like her own mother.

“I am very open-minded. Since I am singing songs that exude sensuality, we decided to bank on that and present the sensual side of me. We experimented a lot during my latest pictorial and the pictures you see in my social media account, same with my publicity photos, were part of that experiment,” said the singer.

Marione added that her songs were used as background music in the sexy scenes of “Ex with Benefits” and “Always Be My Maybe.”

She revealed that her Mommy Lala, who was absent during the pictorial, was shocked upon seeing her new photos.


There is a signature campaign in asking for a million signatures to avert the closure of the ABS-CBS network, the franchise of which expires in March.

President Rodrigo Duterte is adamant when he said he would do everything to stop the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise because of the alleged violations of the Lopez-owned network.

But as we write this, the network continues to sign up their marquee contract stars like Sharon Cuneta, Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, just to name a few.

Many ABS-CBN employees stand to lose their jobs if ever the network fails to renew its franchise on or before it expires in March. The question now is: Does ABS-CBN have a contingency plan if such a thing happens? But maybe the network is doing something to come up with a solution to the impending problem.

For now, let us enjoy with gusto watching ABS-CBN programs as we don’t know what is going to happen in the next few weeks.


“D’Ninang” from Regal Entertainment, starring comedy queen Ms. Ai Ai delas Alas, had a successful red carpet premiere at the SM Megamall on Monday night. The red carpet premiere was attended by the cast members Kisses Delavin, McCoy de Leon, Kiray Celis, Kelvin Miranda, Angel Guardian, Lou Veloso and Joey Marquez.

In the movie, Ai Ai portrays a pickpocket with a good heart. While it is apparent her character is doing something bad, Ninang extends help to her community where she appears to be everyone’s Ninang.

But what will happen if her daughter, who wants to punish crooks, discovers her secret? How will this affect their relationship? Will their love for each other prevail when they discover their flaws?

“D’Ninang” is a heartwarming story about human relationships and one’s struggles to keep the goodness in her heart despite hardships in life.

Directed by GB Sampedro, “D’Ninang” hit cinemas today nationwide.


It was the 10th anniversary of FKC International and they had a big celebration held at the SMX Convention Center last week where Star Circuit had the chance to talk with Mr. Kenneth Chang, the Vice-President of the company.

FKC International is a health-based company and their thrust is to promote a healthy lifestyle globally.

“While a lot of companies are focused on selling the product, from our perspective, we espouse on the idea of having good health and how important health is to them. As young people, we don’t care about our health but are focused in working for a living. We work hard and try to earn money. Our health is the least of our priorities. But as we grow older, we have to think of being healthy. That’s the message we want to give to our clients all over the world,” said Chang.

FKC (which stands for Friendship, Kindness and Charity) International was established in California and was put up in the Philippines 10 years ago. Business had been good in the last seven years. Mr. Chang says potential for business in the Philippines is good and the wealth level is increasing.

“There is no better time for us to be in the Philippines than right now,” he said.

Among the local celebrities who had been part of FKC International is TV5 host and motivational speaker Chinkee Tan.
