Cloe Baretto sheds it all in launching film

STAR CIRCUIT - Ricky Calderon (The Freeman) - May 10, 2021 - 9:19pm

It has been a year since ABS-CBN went off the air. It happened because of a vindictive president who vowed he will do everything to make sure ABS-CBN’s franchise doesn’t get renewed. With a rubber stamp Congress that conducted a bogus hearing, even without violations, ABS-CBN ceased operations, leaving many employees jobless.

It was a harder situation since it happened during the pandemic. But even if the Kapamilya network went off air, the company continued to be of service to Filipinos worldwide through various platforms. ABS-CBN is still very much around.

A year after the shutdown of its broadcast operations, ABS-CBN reaffirmed its commitment to serve Filipinos with a simple but meaningful message: “Andito Kami Para Sa ‘Yo” (We are here for you).

This message was all over social media on May 5 as the company reminded Filipinos that ABS-CBN is still here to provide them support, light, and joy through its content, which are available on free TV, cable, online, and streaming platforms.

In the plug, ABS-CBN thanked viewers as it showed the phrase “Andito Kami Para Sa ‘Yo” in different languages and dialects. It is a powerful message of gratitude to those who have trusted the company for news, public service, and entertainment for many years, and continue to love and support ABS-CBN despite the challenges.

With one strong statement, ABS-CBN’s programs, platforms, and artists expressed that their audiences are why the company continues to exist to deliver stories, and give joy and inspiration to Filipinos.

“Kayo po ang tanging dahilan kung bakit naglilingkod ang ABS-CBN, mula noon hanggang ngayon. Dahil sa inyong suporta, patuloy tayong nakakapaghatid ng mga kwento, nakapagbibigay ng saya at inspirasyon sa Pilipino,” they said in various social media posts.


ABS-CBN has been relentless in finding ways to continue to reach and serve Filipinos wherever they may be.

Filipinos are now able to watch well-loved ABS-CBN entertainment programs including the weekday primetime block on free TV and via digital box on A2Z Channel 11 and TV5.

On cable, Filipinos continue to enjoy ABS-CBN shows, movies, and other content on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, TV5, Cinemo, Jeepney TV, CinemaOne, Metro Channel, MYX, and Knowledge Channel, and get their news updates on TeleRadyo and ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel.

Filipinos have even more options online, as ABS-CBN makes its offerings available for viewing on its official social media pages and digital platforms, on Kapamilya Online Live on Facebook and YouTube, on the ABS-CBN streaming service iWantTFC, and recently, also on WeTV iflix.

With TV5’s nationwide reach, the company is also able to stay connected to its regional audiences, as well as through the programs of MOR Entertainment on Facebook, kumu, Spotify, and YouTube.

ABS-CBN also continues to champion Filipino talent through Star Music and Star Cinema, and able to provide help and support to Filipinos in need through ABS-CBN News Public Service and ABS-CBN Foundation.


After watching “Silab” last Saturday in a press preview, we don’t know what to advise newcomer Cloe Baretto who is being launched as a lead actress in the maiden offering of 3:16 Productions.

When we had the chance to interview Cloe and she talked about the numerous sexy and daring scenes in the Joel Lamangan flick, we asked her if she will allow her parents to watch her movie.

“Hindi po ako sure pero sabi naman po nila susuportahan nila ako,” was her answer.

But Cloe has plenty of daring scenes – breast exposure and frontal nudity – which she bravely did. After all, this is her launching film and she gave her all.

We are afraid that Cloe’s parents will be shocked seeing their daughter in her naked glory on the big screen. If Cloe was that gutsy to do all those provocative scenes, and won't feel embarassment at her family seeing it, then go ahead and invite them to watch it.

But she should warn her parents about the sexy scenes. They should know what to expect so they won’t get startled.

She did quite a fairly good job, acting-wise, although she’s playing a very complex role.

We trust that Direk Joel is happy with how Cloe performed since he told us he was impressed with the newcomer’s acting despite her inexperience.
