Early next year, Lovi Poe’s contract with GMA-7 expires. Talks crop up that Lovi would transfer to the Kapamilya station. Allegedly, her rumored BF Jack Cuenca has influenced her decision to transfer. Lovi neither denied nor confirmed the talks.
She said, “I’m in no position to decide. It all depends on my manager Leo Dominguez. Basta ako, I’m happy at the way things have shaped up for me at the Kapuso network.”
On Jake, Lovi is all praise for him. But she said she would not be influenced by him if ever she decides to become a Kapamilya actress. In the first place, she’s not yet in a serious relationship with Jake.
“Granting we’re on, he won’t ever meddle in my career, I’m sure of that. We respect each other that much,” Lovi said.
Incidentally, we heard that Lovi inconspicuously dropped by the grave of her dad Fernando Poe Jr. at the North Cemetery during his recent death anniversary.[box type=”default” size=”large”] Lauren now a Kapuso star [/box]Officially, Lauren Young is now with the Kapuso network as evidenced by her presence at the launching of GMA-7 new shows held few days back. She went to the event with her new manager in tow, Pia Magalona, the widow of Francis Magalona.
A colleague whispered to us what Lauren had intimated: Her sis Megan Young cajoled her, tongue on cheek. “Aba, nagpalitan tayo. Ako galing sa Kapuso, ikaw naman from Kapamilya to Kapuso, nakakatawa, ano?”
Frankly, Lauren said she’ll always be grateful to the bigwigs of Kapamilya. She would not have gained a modest success if not for the breaks given to her there.
Meanwhile, a reliable source at Kapamilya injected quite an intrigue when he mouthed these words,”’Di kawalan si Lauren sa amin. The truth, her launching TV series “Mula sa Puso” didn’t click. Kaya nga wala na siyang sumunod na meaty assignment, eh.”
Blind item: Chums of a veteran actor-TV host expressed admiration for him. You see, for a very huge amount, an affluent politician approached him and sort of bribed him to run against a showbiz personality-politician in the next election. But the former, a no slip-shod person, rejected the tempting offer.
An intimate quoted him as saying, “Yes, nalula ako sa inalok na milyones. Pero umiral pa rin ang prinsipyo sa akin. To fight a long-time pal who assisted me many times in the past would make me a lamebrain and ungrateful.”
We heard that the actor-TV host and the actor-politician chanced upon each other recently. Knowing beforehand what had transpired, the latter hugged the TV host as a gesture of his appreciation.[box type=”default” size=”large”] Bong and wife Lani reunited … in a movie [/box]After a nearly two decades, Senator Bong Revilla and his wife Congresswoman Lani Mercado were reunited in the movie.
