Just like her mom Sharon Cuneta, KC Concepcion is irked by people bashing her in Twitter and Instagram. But KC heeds her mom’s advice to keep her cool. The bashing is an aftermath of KC’s being linked to NBA player Chandler Parsons who reportedly has already a GF.
“They make me appear ill-repute, flirt. Sadyang nakakabastos sa pagka-babae ko. Eh, mere friend lang si Chandler, and we had a group date once only. The bashers exaggerated it. Both Chandler and I never said we’re on dahil wala namang talaga,” my colleague quoted KC as saying.
KC admitted that since 2011 she has never been in a serious love relationship. Piolo Pascual was her last lover. And contrary to what some people are saying, they’re not back-biting each other.
In the wake of kudos showered on KC for her splendid acting in the recent TV series “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,” a new teleserye and a movie project for her will start before the year ends, my source said.

Perhaps it’s because she’s not a friend but a mere acquaintance. We’ve respective set of friends. Pero niri-respeto namin ang isa’t’isa.”
Blind Item: Long-time friends of a famous actor-politician from the media were disheartened by his recent move: He did back out of all his supposed showbiz works, be it on TV or movie. Then he, in a genteel way, distances himself from them. Before, he would go out of his way and take efforts to please or extend assistance to them.

A cool, calm and collected Angel broke her silence, saying she has not felt any bitterness and has maintained a cordial friendship with Phillip. The breakup was a mutual decision.
However, a colleague related to me that Phillip has squashed himself on the issue. He was visibly emotional and on the brink of tears although he had expressed nothing but good words for Angel. My informant, judging from the duo’s reactions, opined that the move to call it quits might have come from Angel. Anyway, their chums yearn for the reconciliation of Angel and Phillip.
