My source confided to me that it’s almost sure Willie Revillame will sign a contract with GMA-7 for a game show project. Reportedly, the program will not only be shot in the Philippines but also in other countries where Willie is said to have huge followers. The major sponsors are willing to support the show which might be launched before the year ends.
Added to this, Willie allegedly told my informant that in case GMA-7 offers him to co-star with Vic Sotto in a movie or TV project, he won’t turn it down.
“Kahit iniintriga kami noon pa dahil sa laban ng aming mga programa I’ve never lost my respect and admiration for Vic. In truth, we’ve always been nice to each other every time I chance upon him.” Willie was quoted as saying.
On the non-stop talks about his habitual gambling at the casino resulting in his selling of properties, Willie said it’s hogwash to elaborate on the issue because his detractors have already concluded he’s a gambler through-and-through.

It is nice to hear that Mayor Herbert Bautista will definitely revive the Quezon City Film Festival this November. Recently, Herbert met with the producers of Star Cinema, Regal, Viva, GMA-7 companies and several Indie film makers who are interested to join the filmfest.
Do you know that among the Indie film makers is Herbert’s sister Harlene Bautista who produced quality movies this year. Her possible entry could impress the board who’ll do the final selection of movie entries in the festival.
Meanwhile, Herbert laughed off rumors he has cut off his friendly relationship with Kris Aquino due to innuendoes about their alleged affair. In fact, Herbert hopefully anticipates that Kris will be in the cast of one of the entries in the QC filmfest.

It all started with a trending video of Daniel Padilla with his male friends. Daniel’s words insinuated that a third party to his relationship with Kathryn Bernardo was Jasmine Curtis, and this prompted diehards of Daniel-Kathryn team to bash Jasmine left and right. Despite his apology for his mistake, Jasmine’s sister Anne Curtis, her former BF Sam Concepcion and even Robin Padilla who is the uncle of Daniel were adversely affected.
In defense of Jasmine, Anne said that her sibling is not capable of flirting with Daniel. In the case of Sam, he has accepted Daniel’s apology but told him to be careful with his actions so as not to offend anybody. As Robin puts it, his nephew should choose his friends, claiming that all of them uploaded the video. “Kaya huwag ka agad magtiwala sa mga nakapaligid sa iyo,” Robin told Daniel.
In this light, Jasmine is thankful to Anne who has always been protective of her. Also, she was thankful for the trust of Sam in her and for Robin for his concern. At the same time, she understands fully well the hurt feelings of Daniel-Kathyrn fans.

On the whole, Pinoys enjoyed the It’s Showtime Show held in Toronto recently. Well applauded were the dance number of Vhong Navarro, Billy Crawford and Jhong Hilario, the belting prowess of Karryle and the cute antics of Anne Curtis. In fairness, Vice Ganda impressed the audience in singing the TV series theme songs.
However, as expected Vice Ganda’s jokes were green, particularly on making fun on the feminine sex organ which was in bad taste. Yes, some of the crowds roared into laughter yet if he did that in the Philippines, for sure the MTRCB (Board of Censors) would summon him again for objectionable act.
