Marian Rivera denies she’s living in with Dingdong Dantes

October 16, 2011

MARIAN Rivera led the thanksgiving mass and dinner for her hit show, “Amaya”, held at GMA7’s executive room. The whole cast is jubilant as the show have been extended up to January 13. Some fans are requesting it be extended up to March but Marian, now the Primetime Queen because of the huge success of “Amaya”, says that’s too much.

“We should give chance to other shows para makapasok naman sila,” she says. “Dapat nga, ‘yung bagong show ni Dingdong (Dantes) will start after us this October, but since we’re extended, they have to wait muna.”

She laughs off rumors that they are now living in and they’ll go on a honeymoon in the U.S. this November. “May sarili akong bahay, ganun din siya. ‘Yung U.S. trip, it’s for us to watch Kuya Manny (Pacquiao’s) fight in Las Vegas. It’s no big deal kasi two days lang ako du’n then balik na ako agad dito. Two days lang ako pinayagang mawala sa taping ng ‘Amaya’, e. But sina Dong and his parents, maiiwan pa sila roon to visit relatives nila. First time ko manood ng live boxing so medyo ninenerbiyos ako. Baka hindi ko makaya. Kapag grabeng bugbugan na may dugo, I’ll just close my eyes.”

The epic story of “Amaya” is now more exciting with the introduction of new characters played by Aljur Abrenica, Yasmien Kurdi and Ronnie Lazaro. “Lahat kami, inspired with the extension of the show, pati dating members ng cast, and we promise we’ll do our best para mas mapaganda pa ito,” Marian adds.

Marian Rivera avoids talks about tiff with Sam Pinto, Heart Evangelista

July 12, 2011

WHAT can Marian Rivera say that she’s just no. 2 to Sam Pinto as FHM’s Sexiest Woman and Sam said she snubs (dedma) her after Sam was linked to Dingdong Dantes? “Okay lang na no. 2 ako,” she says. “Nag-no. 1 naman ako noon without even posing for them. As for that dedma thing, I won’t say anything na lang dahil palalakihin na naman, the same way na don’t also ask me anything about the other issue (her tiff with Heart Evangelista) dahil as far as I’m concerned, nasabi ko na ang gusto ko. Palabas na ang movie namin at thankful ako’ng hit ito.”

It’s said she won’t do a movie with Robin Padilla but with Aga Muhlach. “Sa totoo lang, mas nauuna pang malaman ‘yan ng press than me. I’ve never been officially informed, so wala akong masasabi tungkol dyan. Pag nag-shoot o presscon na, then may kuwento na ako.”

If you’d see Marian now, she has a reddish swelling on one cheek. “Nakagat kasi ako ng insect sa set ng ‘Amaya.’ Last week pa ‘yang insect bite na yan but namamaga pa rin. Di lang ako’ng nakagat, si Sid Lucero din. A bee bit him so they called a doctor to prevent allergic reaction. Nagpa-pest control na nga ang staff para mabawasan ang insects sa set.”

Heart Evangelista ‘stabbed at the back’ by Marian Rivera

June 25, 2011

“Pinalaki ako ng lola ko na may respeto sa mas nakatatanda sa akin,” humihikbing wika ni Marian Ri-vera sa bonggang presscon ng Temptation Island na prinodyus ni Mother Lily under Regal Entertainment at ng GMA Films.

Actually, iwas nang iwas si Marian na sagutin ang anumang tanong tungkol sa diumano’y issue against her and Heart Evangelista (kung saan involved ang mommy ng huli).

Lumalabas na akala ni Heart ay siya diumano ang pinag-uusapan nina Marian at Lovi Poe at ikinairita itong isinumbong niya sa kanyang mommy. Iyon nga, tinarayan diumano ng mommy ni Heart si Marian at humantong pa ito sa pag-hire ng mga PSG the next day para hindi malapitan ni Marian si Heart saan man sila magkita.

Inamin din ni Marian na siya mismo ang nag-suggest kay Mother Lily na kunin si Heart para makasama nila sa bongga at pinag-uusapang remake ng obra ng yumaong direk Joey Gosiengfiao.

Hindi naman daw siya nagsisi sa pagkakarekomenda kay Heart dahil noong makasama niya ito sa GMA naging close sila.

“Kaya nga hindi ko akalain na gagawin nila ‘yun sa akin. Nanghihinayang lang ako dahil, maganda ang naging samahan namin noong una. Akala ko, kaibigan ko siya. Malinaw na may nangyari, pero, parang wala na sana iyon. Hindi ko alam kung bakit nagkaganito.”

Nang mahimasmasan, nagbiro na si Marian: “Mag-ha-hire na rin ako next time ng isang dosenang bakla na magiging bodyguards ko para magbantay sa akin. Magiging masaya pa.

Heart Evangelista’s mom made Marian Rivera cry

June 14, 2011

RAYMOND Gutierrez revealed in “Showbiz Central” last Sunday that two stars of “Temptation
Island” are currently feuding while shooting the film’s remaining scenes in Paoay, Ilocos Norte. This was first reported as a blind item but Raymond named them: Marian Rivera and Heart Evangelista. Heart quickly denied this on Twitter, saying: “Let’s not make a big fuss. Marian and I are okay. Showbiz is showbiz so, Heartworld, wag na tayo mag-away-away.”

But looks like ther rift is far from over. Although Heart sounds conciliatory on Twitter, it seems her mom is joining the fray and is very hostile to Marian. Upon their arrival at the airport in Manila last Monday, Marian humbled herself and was about to approach to say goodbye but Heart’s mom, who came to fetch her, reportedly barked at Marian: “Stay away from my daughter!” She said some bad things about Marian that made the star of “Amaya” cry.

If Heart’s mom did this to a talent of Annabelle Rama, we’re sure they will not hear the end of it as the feisty ex-manager of Heart will surely raise hell. Marian’s manager is the less combative Popoy Caritativo. But Popoy once got peeved also and locked horns with the manager of Jennylyn Mercado at the height of her feud with ex-BF Dennis Trillo. Let’s see how Popoy will react now that it’s his hottest property, Marian no less, who figures in an ugly conflict with Heart’s mom.

Someone with the group told us Heart really has reason to feel insecure about Marian. “Kasi, kahit saan magpunta ang cast ng ‘Temptation Island’, si Marian talaga ang mas pinagkakaguluhan,” says our source. “Maski sa airport pa lang, may grupo ng basketball players na nakasabay sila, si Marian talaga ang pinagkalipumpunan para magpa-picture. Pero okay na ring may away among the cast members para mas umingay ang pelikula. O ayan, mas pinag-uusapan ngayon ang ‘Temptation Island’ at makakatulong yan sa promo nito.”

The movie is due for release on July 6 and they’ll have a big presscon soon. Let’s see what Marian and Heart have to say about this.

Sam Pinto overtakes Marian Rivera in top spot of FHM mag’s sexiest polls

May 22, 2011

Model-actress Sam Pinto is now at number one in this week’s partial and unofficial results of the 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2011 polls of the Philippine edition of FHM magazine.

Only last week, Pinto was lagging at third spot behind two of today’s most popular actresses: Marian Rivera, who was at number one (and for four consecutive weeks already); and last year’s winner Angel Locsin, who was at number two.

Locsin was able to hold on tightly at second, but it was a steep tumble for Rivera, who has replaced Pinto at third.

But more than appearing in the same poll and battling each other for the top spot, Pinto and Rivera’s names had been linked before–albeit in a not-so-flattering light. Only a year ago, rumor spread that Rivera got jealous of Pinto after the latter supposedly received “special treatment” from the former’s beau, actor Dingdong Dantes, during a taping for “Party Pilipinas.”

Although the rumor died a quick death, observers believe that a rivalry of sorts between the two had been sparked and it had been quietly burning since.

The top 10 in the magazine’s list, as of May 20, 2011, are:

  • 1. Sam Pinto
  • 2. Angel Locsin
  • 3. Marian Rivera
  • 4. Cristine Reyes
  • 5. Solenn Heussaff
  • 6. Valerie Concepcion
  • 7. Jennylyn Mercado
  • 8. Ellen Adarna
  • 9. Lovi Poe
  • 10. Katrina Halili

Voting ends June 15.

Marian Rivera gets support from ABS stars

November 6, 2010

MARIAN Rivera is very open in her admiration for Maricel Soriano who’s versatile to do both drama and comedy with equal ease, so she’s now flattered to remake one of Maria’s biggest hits, “Super Inday,” the other Regal entry in the Metro filmfest. “I asked Ate Maria’s permission first before we started shooting and I’m glad she gave me the go signal,” she says. “I hope I’ll be able to do justice to the role ng hindi naman ako mapahiya sa kanya.”

The new “Super Inday” is megged by Mike Tuviera and promises to be more exciting than the past one since it makes use of the latest technology to come out with stunning computer generated images in the fantasy sequences.

Marian plays a barrio girl who looks for her long lost mom (Cherry Pie Picache) in Manila and meets a magic duck (John Lapus as a fallen angel sent to earth to do good deeds) with golden eggs that give her special powers to make her a super crime buster.

Since the film is also a comedy, Marian gets support from ABS clown Pokwang plus kid stars Buboy Villar, Jairus Aquino and Sabrina Man. Also in the cast are Jake Cuenca, Mylene Dizon and Sheena Halili.

“I’m so glad I get the chance to work with Kapamilya stars in this film,” says Marian. “I won’t get the chance to work with them if not for Mother Lily. This is a wholesome entertaining film for the whole family perfect for the holidays.”

Sam Pinto doesn’t care about Marian Rivera’s jealousy

October 28, 2010

Nagtataka si Sam Pinto kung saan nanggagaling ang tsismis tungkol sa kanila ni Dingdong Dantes dahil hindi naman daw sila nag-uusap.

“I don’t have any idea po where it came from because we don’t really talk, we don’t text, I don’t know his number, as in when I see him, I just say hi,” sabi ni Sam nang makausap namin sa presscon na ipinatawag ng VAA (Viva Artists Agency) para sa kanilang female talents.

Nagkikita raw sila ni Dingdong sa Party Pilipinas pero halos hindi naman sila nagkakausap. Magkaiba sila ng dressing room at madalas ay sa stage lang sila nagkikita.

Binibiro nga siya na baka pagselosan siya ng girlfriend ni Dingdong na si Marian Rivera at natanong kung wala pa ba siyang text o threat na natatanggap mula sa aktres.

“Wala naman po. Pero like I said before, I hope Marian doesn’t stoop that low again.”

Matatandaan kasing naging issue ang pangha-harass diumano ni Marian sa baguhang si Bela Padillla kaya biniro namin si Sam na baka siya naman ang sumunod.

“Hndi naman niya kailangang gawin ’yon if I’m not doing anything naman,” say ni Sam.

What if gawin sa kanya?

“Bahala siya, I really don’t care.”

Lalaban ba siya if ever?

“Hindi, I won’t stoop that low, really. I wasn’t raised up to fight,” say pa ng dating PBB housemate.

Samantala, si Sam is being co-managed by VAA and Claire dela Fuente.

From ABS-CBN ay inilipat siya ng managers niya sa GMA-7 at aniya, masaya siya sa kanyang bagong bahay dahil marami siyang projects.

“Mas mabuti na ’yung may eyebags ka (dahil sa rami ng work) kesa wala kang eyebags,” natatawa niyang sabi.
