Convivial as ever, KC Concepcion merely smiled when queried why she has remained loveless. KC admits most of her suitors are foreigners. She has been dating one of them, but she has no love relationship with him.
“Seguro may appeal ako sa mga foreigners, pero may lumiligaw pa rin sa akin na mga Pinoy. I’d like to clarify: The one I am dating now isn’t the French guy Pierre Plassart who was linked to me before,” KC told a colleague of mine.
How come KC has accepted a sort of “kontrabida” role in the new TV series, “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala”? According to my source, KC had said it’s part of her growing up as an actress. Besides, she is playing the role of a character who is not thoroughly mean.
“Yung bang tipong nabulag lang sa sobrang love sa lalaki (played by Sam Milby). Also, my dream to work with one of my most admired, respected actresses is fulfilled. It’s exciting to do scenes with Ms. Judy Ann Santos,” KC was quoted as saying.
In jest, KC said, “At least, people would no longer say I’m a copycat of my mom who has never portrayed a villainess in the movies. Naiba ako, di ba?” She is referring to her mega star mom, Sharon Cuneta.
[box type=”default” size=”large”] Rafael inspires other Kapamilya actors [/box]With reluctance, Rafael Rosell said that he has inspired some Kapamilya actors. His transfer from ABS-CBN to GMA-7 yielded positive outcome. He’s now more popular, recognized as a lead star, and his previous starrer “Temptation of a Wife” with Marian Rivera and his ongoing teleserye, “Maghihintay Pa Rin,” are successful.
As a result, Kapamilya actors who yearn for a break in other TV stations have approached Rafael for an advice. He didn’t divulge their names, except for singer-actor Christian Bautista.
“Before Christian became a Kapuso actor, I told him to follow the dictate of his heart — kung feel niya mabibigyan siya ng bagong chance for the better. As it is, he’s happy to star in the new Kapuso teleserye, “With a Smile,” a chance that eluded him at Kapamilya network.
Well, for the record, the segregation of the top stars at ABS-CBN compound could confuse other contract actors. They don’t know how to place themselves, and this leads them to try their luck in other TV station.
[box type=”default” size=”large”] Blind Item: [/box]So it’s true that a popular actor from a showbiz clan went abroad to visit her GF-actress who’s said to be pregnant. His family refused to comment on reports that the girl has already delivered their child.
A friend from that foreign country said, “I couldn’t be mistaken. I saw the actress once in a mall, obviously an expectant mom. Baka nga at this time nanganak na, kaya nandito ang BF-actor.”
Only the actor himself can confirm or deny the veracity of this claim. By this time, he might have enplaned back to the Philippines.
[box type=”default” size=”large”] Entries of Vic, Bong, Vice vie for top grosser [/box]At this time, the committee of the Metro Manila Film Festival has not officially announced the eight movies that will be featured in the festival. Nevertheless, many expect the starrers of Vic Sotto, Vice Ganda and Bong Revilla as the front runners at the tills.
Vice Ganda’s film “Bakla, Tomboy at Babae” has Maricel Soriano and Ai Ai delas Alas in the lead. The untitled pic of Vic co-stars new child wonder Ryzza Mae Dizon and Kris Aquino, James Yap’s son Bimby in his movie debut. We heard that Bong opts for the film version of his recent toprated TV series, “Indio.”
[box type=”default” size=”large”] Hot Items: [/box]What could be Kris Aquino’s condition on allowing her son Bimby to be in the cast of the Vic Sotto film fest starrer? Why Bimby is in a lead role bigger than that of Ryzza Mae Dizon’s character? This elicited protest from some diehard fans of Ryzza. “Bakit may prueba na ba ang anak niya? Eh, si Ryzza is an instant child sensation, being the only moppet star to host her own daily TV show, “Ryzza Mae Show,” a top-rated morning program ng GMA-7,” one of them said.
Once again, Toni Gonzaga was reported to be on the brink of breaking up with his BF Paul Soriano. “Nakakasawa na kasi. Seven years na kami ni Paul at laging ganyan ang tsismis na may other love ito. We’ve trusted each other for long, kaya mas matibay ang aming pag-ibig.” Upshot words of Toni!
