After signing a new two-year contact with ABS-CBN, KC Concepcion was asked by showbiz reporters if one of her options would be to play daring, offbeat roles which she hadn’t accepted before.
She said, “Let’s see if the script suits my taste. When I won the recent FAMAS best actress award, I’m challenged to show I really have grown up as an actress. Kung ‘yun ang nagpapatunay na versatile ako, why not tackle bold part for a change?”
About her alleged romance with Paulo Avelino, KC indirectly admits their intense closeness to each other. But she is not really going steady with him yet. “Mahirap magsalita ng patapos pero sana nga doon matuloy. Paulo has so many traits I fully admire,” KC said.

It looks like good Lady Luck is smiling at Kapuso actor Alden Richards. Hardly had he finished his hit TV drama series “Carmela” with Prime Time Queen Marian Rivera, Alden was told he passed the audition for an international movie entitled “Remembering Ada,” which will be shot in Doha, Quatar.
Pinoy megger Jamix Pacle who’s scheduled to direct the flick relayed the good news to Alden. The plot revolves around a unique story of two lovers who were separated by fate only to meet 50 years later. Also in the cast is young Kapuso actress Max Collins who has been romantically linked to Alden. It’s expected that their being together filming the movie in Doha would create more brouhaha about their relationships.

Yes, it’s true that Aga Muhlach’s contract withTV-5 expired recently. A reliable source informed me that anytime now Aga will sign up again with the ABS-CBN network. As of this writing, Aga should have already left for a vacation abroad with his wife Charlene Gonzales and their kids.
“He’s definite he will return to the Kapamilya fold. Aga’s not sure what show awaits hm. If ever, he’s very willing to topbill a teleserye, be it comedy or drama. Aga doesn’t mind he would co-star with his exes and those romantically linked to him before, including Carmina Villaroel,” my source said.
On the political arena, Aga divulged to my informant that his loss in the last election wouldn’t mean he has given up politics. He was beaten by a powerful politician in Bicol, but the experience prompted Aga to contemplate on what position he would run for the next time around.
“I don’t want to talk about my rumored parting ways with Charlene. The fact that our entire family will be together for a European vacation speaks well of our harmony,” my source quoted Aga as saying.

Unexpectedly, the usually reticent Aljur Abrenica is in hot water. Not only because Robin Padilla has lambasted him but also because he has an altercation with GMA-7 bigwigs. Robin got irked when Aljur broke off with his daughter, Kylie Padilla. Robin called Aljur “bakla” and advised Kylie to choose a new boyfriend who’s a real man.
A few days later, Aljur aired his grievances against GMA-7 brasses and said he is on the verge of signing a contract with another TV network. News reports had it that the Kapuso executives have asked Aljur to retract the irksome words thrown at them. Otherwise, management would sue him for breach of contract.
As of this writing, we heard the issue has yet to be resolved by Aljur and the Kapuso bosses.

Kris Aquino just to use her in his bid to return to the Kapamilya station. That’s farthest from his mind, and he’s happy at the way things have shaped up for him at TV-5. [/box]
“Lahat ng good opportunities binigay sa akin ng TV-5. Besides, I’m pleased with their treatment of me and, of course, di pa tapos ang kontrata ko sa kanila,” Derek said.
On the late comedy King Dolphy’s birthday last July 25, a big concert was held in his honor by the Quizon clan and Zsa Zsa Padilla. Mixed emotions engulfed Zsa Zsa, but despite the sadness she felt for having missed Dolphy, she’s elated that the Quizons, led by Eric, welcomed her non-showbiz lover.
“Two years ng patay ang dad ko. So Tita Zsa Zsa deserves to be find happiness with a new man. We still feel up to this date she truly loves, misses dad even if a new love exists.” Eric told his writer-chums.

Their inimical attitude towards each other had been noticeable for some time now. Their parting of ways is blamed on a young actor who, in Tagalog parlance, namangka daw sa dalawang ilog. [/box]
