Charice Pempengco vs Jessica Sanchez

It looks like there’s a brewing feud between the diehard fans of Charice and A m e r i c a n Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez. It came as an aftermath of the criticisms hurled by Charice’s American manager on Filipinos. The manager said Jessica Sanchez shouldn’t be treated as Pinoy pride because she’s an American.

But the Pinoys countered. One fan said, “Charice’ manager has no right to say that because she (manager) is unaware of our culture. We consider a half-bred guy as our kababayan, especially if she or he is proud of being a half-Pinoy. Probably, she uttered those words because of insecurity, that in due time, Jessica would outshine Charice not only in the Philippines and US but also worldwide.”

If the feud gets worst, partly to be blamed is the manager, some fans said. In fairness to both Charice and Jessica, both singers speak highly of each other without mendaciousness.[box type=”default” size=”large”] Dingdong show with Robin’s daughter shelved [/box]So it’s true that the planned teleserye of D i n g d o n g Dantes and Robin Padilla’s daughter Kylie entitled “Haram” has been shelved.

Talks had it that Robin nixed the project because the theme revolves around a Muslim girl, played by Kylie, falling in love with Dingdong, who is a Christian soldier in the story.

But Kyle denied the claim against her dad. She admitted that Robin had read the script and found nothing wrong in so far as Islam is concerned.

“Perhaps, GMA 7 has other reasons why it didn’t push through with the project. Wala naman nilang ibintang sa tatay ko. For one, he’s very supportive of my acting career,” Kyle told some media people.

Remember Ai-Ai and Vice Ganda have been feuding for some time for unknown reason?

Their team-up may yet put to rest claims that the two are still at loggerheads. Many showbiz guys expected Ai-Ai to reject the offer – that is if she hasn’t yet forgotten her rift with Vice Ganda. As Ai-Ai’s chum said, “Ai-Ai has realized that Vice Ganda has already changed for the better, kaya pinatawad na niya ang atraso sa kanya.”
