Roach: “Manny Pacquiao Will Expose Miguel Cotto”

August 26, 2009

While Manny Pacquiao plays the lead role in a movie currently being filmed in the Philippines, his opponent on Nov. 14th, WBO welterweight titlist Miguel Cotto, has already begun light training in his native Puerto Rico for the fight that is still over 11 weeks away.

Pacquiao won’t begin his fight preparations for another few weeks, but exactly where he will do so is still a question that has yet to be answered. Pacquiao typically trains within the friendly confines of Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California.

However, a complicated Internal Revenue Service rule known as the “substantial presence test” mandates that non-resident aliens can only spend a certain number of days in the United States. If a person exceeds that number of days in a three-year period, they are considered a resident for tax purposes and their income is taxed accordingly. Pacquiao is dangerously close to exceeding the number of days allowed and he can only spend another month in the United States this year – before it would cost him millions in additional income tax.

Chiz tops VP race; Jinggoy leads in Pulse Senate poll

August 26, 2009

Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero may be number four in the latest Pulse Asia presidential survey, but he is number one in the same survey on the vice presidential slot, obtaining 21 percent of the vote, followed closely by Sen. Loren Legarda at 19 percent.

Senate President Pro-Tempore Jinggoy Estrada also topped the Pulse Senate survey, getting a majority vote from all the respondents, at 50.2 percent. In second place, with a 48.3 score, is Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas.

Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay was at a virtual statistical tie for the vice presidency with Vice President Noli de Castro, who had a 15 percent score, and Sen. Francis Pangilinan, also at 12 percent.

If elections had been held at the time the survey was conducted (July 28 to Aug. 10) and Escudero, Legarda and De Castro ran for the presidency instead, the vice presidential race would have been hotly contested by Binay and Pangilinan.

Carla Abellana collapses, rumored preggy

August 26, 2009

CARLA Abellana just laughs off the rumor that she collapsed and lost consciousness on the taping of “Rosalinda” because she’s infanticipating and her leading man Geoff Eigenmann is the dad.

“It’s true that I fainted and Geoff brought me to the hospital pero dahil lang sa sobrang pagod sa magdamagang taping,” she says. “But it’s true that my character, Rosalinda, got pregnant and even gave birth sa anak nila ni Fernando Jose na si Erika, who’d later be abducted from her by her enemies.”

She and Geoff are happy now that the ratings of “Rosalinda” have really picked up. “No doubt that ‘Darna’ as our pre-program helped a lot, pero mas nakakaintriga na rin kasi ang takbo ng story ngayon kaya siguro tumaas na ang viewership namin. Pinalayas ni Fernando Jose si Rosalinda after learning that Soledad is her real mother.

Marian Rivera, umaming mahal si Dingdong Dantes

August 26, 2009

“Maging happy kami forever. Hindi kami mag-away, may problema man, maayos agad. Mas maganda ’yung smooth lahat, mas masaya. Hindi naman kami nag-aaway nu’n, eh. Tampuhan na arte-arte lang, pero ’yung sabihin mong away na literal, never talaga, wala talaga.”

Ito ang belated birthday wish ni Marian Rivera para sa kanila ng rumored boyfriend na si Dingdong Dantes, na ang birthday special, Dantes Peak, na kinunan noong Sabado ng gabi ay ipalalabas sa GMA Network sa Linggo, August 30.

Pinag-uusapan ang nasabing birthday special, hindi lamang dahil sa kalakihan at kapormalan ng okasyon, kundi sa pagdalo ni Marian at pakikipaghalikan nito kay Dingdong sa stage.

Maging ang post-birthday party sa Imperial Palace Suites na ibinigay ni Mother Lily Monteverde para sa female lead ng Regal movie na Tarot (opening na bukas, Aug. 26), pinag-usapan din dahil sa pagsipot ng special guest na si Dingdong, pag-i-smack ng dalawang beses, pagiging super sweet at walang patumanggang paghu-holding hands ng dating magkapareha.

Roxanne Guinoo explains attitude problem

August 26, 2009

ROXANNE Guinoo is puzzled why some people are saying that her co-stars avoid working with her as she has an attitude problem, like when she rejected Guji Lorenzana in “Precious Hearts,” and she has also become unprofessional when she has a taping or shooting.

“I don’t know what attitude problem they’re referring to,” she says. “Si Guji, I didn’t reject him. Ang inayawan ko, ‘yung love scenes na gagawin ng character ko kasi I’m not comfortable in doing them. So kaysa gawin ko tapos lumabas na hindi maganda, I begged off. But it’s nothing personal with Guji.”

She was eventually replaced by Kaye Abad who did the provocative love scenes with Guji with no qualms.

“Iniisip ko nga kung kailan ako naging unprofessional,” she adds. “May tsismis na nag-walkout ang director namin sa ‘Tarot’, but it’s not true. I’m really thankful to Mother Lily for getting me sa movie as I got to work with Director Jun Lana, who’s a Kapuso, along with my co-stars Marian Rivera and Dennis Trillo na Kapuso rin.

Rhian Ramos to Marian Rivera: Hindi ako ahas

August 26, 2009

RHIAN Ramos is aware that some quarters are not exactly jubilant with her being chosen as Dingdong Dantes’ leading lady in the local adaptation of the hit Koreanovela, “Stairway to Heaven”. “So what else is new?” she says. “Di ba ayaw rin nila when I was chosen to do ‘La Lola’ but they were proven wrong kasi it did well in the ratings naman.

At this point, I’ve already accepted that I can’t please everyone. Meron din ngang nagkakalat na tomboy ako. What I just do is to give my best in any role assigned to me para naman hindi mapahiya yung mga nagtitiwala sa kakayahan ko.”

Won’t Marian Rivera get jealous when she does her romantic scenes with Dingdong? “Ngayon pa lang, halos araw-araw kami magkasama ni Dingdong dahil sa workshops namin for our new show. But I assure her wala siyang dapat ipagselos dahil hindi ako threat sa anumang relationship meron sila.

Maricar Reyes dahilan ng Luis Manzano Angel Locsin break-up

August 26, 2009

Pinutakti ng tanong si Luis Manzano sa prescon ng In My Life ng Star Cine-ma tungkol sa napabalitang break-up nila ni Angel Locsin.

Ayaw sagutin ni Luis nang diretso ang tanong ng lahat kung break na ba sila ni Angel o hindi.

Mas gugustuhin na lang daw niyang pag-usapan ang movie nila ng kanyang mom, na si Vilma Santos.

Kesyo right from the start naman daw ay hindi nila nire-reveal sa press ang relasyon nila ni Angel kaya gusto lang nilang i-maintain ang pagiging tahimik nila at pribado hanggang sa huling sandali.

Pero siyempre, ayaw pumayag ang press na manahimik na lang si Luis sa issue lalo pa’t ang lumalabas ay siya ang may kasalanan sa paghihiwalay nila ni Angel.

Kesyo may third party raw na involved at ang pa-ngalan ni Maricar Reyes ang lumalabas na pampagulo.
