A colleague queried Robin Padilla about his comment on his daughter Kylie being overshadowed, career-wise, by his nephew Daniel Padilla. With a grin, Binoe said there’s no issue about it as he’s proud of Daniel’s accomplishments.
“Frankly, I predict that Daniel will even surpass my fame. In the first place, he is a good singer; I’ve not achieved that. And at a young age, blockbusters na ang mga starrers niya. That’s why the entire Padilla clan is very elated by his standing in showbiz. Ipinagmamalaki namin si Daniel,” Binoe was quoted as saying.
Binoe’s forthcoming movie will be about the biography of Andres Bonifacio which, he believes, will become a milestone in his career.
“It’s high time for me to do significant, historical movies. At this point I’d like to be called a truly serious actor, especially after I received the Actor of the Year award from the 45th Box Office Entertainment Awards,” he added.

With the frequent change in the format of the Kapamilya network’s talk show “The Buzz,” intrigues have been flying over it. First, it was changed to “Buzz ng Bayan,” with Boy Abunda’s co-hosts Toni Gonzaga and Charlene Gonzales replaced by Janice de Belen and Carmina Villaroel.
Then few days later, it’s back to “The Buzz,” and previous hosts – Kris Aquino and Toni Gonzaga — are again hosting the show together with Boy. Words snowball that since the Kapuso talk show “Star Talk” has been pitted against “The Buzz” every Sunday, “Star Talk” has beaten The Buzz in the rating chart.
A spokesman of ABS-CBN clarified that the management has acceded to the clamor of fans to bring back Kris and Toni to the show, using the original The Buzz format. This has nothing to do with insecurity against a rival program, management said.

The squabble started when PBA player Terence Romeo of Global Port team wrote in instagram that he has no affair with Vice Ganda. Then his dad, William Romeo, threw maleficent words at gays, a statement which hurt both Vice Ganda and Boy Abunda.
In the airing of The Buzz, Vice Ganda clarified he had never admitted any relationship with guys, including Terence. And though Vice Ganda respects Terence’s father, his statement against gays has totally disheartened the so-called “third sex.”
Boy was more vocal about it, saying, “Pinalabas na parang masasama ang mga bakla na sobrang masakit para sa amin. Even Pope Francis told the people if a gay is with God and has good intention, who am I to judge? Ever since I have been fighting for equality, and the gays lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders deserve to be understood. I respect Terence’s dad but I don’t go for his opinion.”
We heard that Terence had apologized to Vice Ganda for his dad’s words. Vice Ganda knows that Terence has problems with his father.
