Jon Mullally signs up for Star Magic

Well waddya know J.? Jonathan “Jon” Mullally is now the newest Star Magic, Inc. talent and will be known as Jon Avila. Star Magic, Inc. [ABS-CBN Talent Management and Development Center], formerly ABS-CBN Talent Center, is teevee giant ABS-CBN’s network-based training and management program. I’m not so sure how he will be packaged by the network but maybe, just maybe, he can be like Andrew Wolff – you know, lose the Estuary English accent, speak fluent Filipino, show some butt, and punch girls and boys alike in the face.

Jericho Rosales regrets..

…. being labeled a “Katok Boy.” According to reports from the Radio Mindanao Network Entertainment News, Jericho was a “Katok Boy” before he became an actor. A “Katok Boy” apparently goes a-knockin’ at doors to ask for financial help. In the case of Jericho Rosales, according to the report, when he was younger and poorer, he went from one beauty parlor to another in Marikina [where he used to stay] and asked for help from the gay beauticians, who were just to glad to help the cute fledgling with some thing in return, of course. The report said that their source was one member from Jericho’s former group, The Hunks, wherein said member was just not too happy keeping an information made in confidence by Jericho Rosales.

Becoming Bien Rosales

This is the second post on Bien Rosales, the handsome Tondo boy I previously featured. Bien Rosales, who stands 6′-tall, is half-Filipino, half-German.

Twinkie Kaisan is 1st RU in Heatwave!


Despite the blue [or is it gray] contact lenses, our favorite twinkie Kaisan Lopez was a near-miss at the Heatwave 2007 – A Summer Bikini Showdown, held on 23 May at the Garden Resort in Alabang. Kaisan Lopez, who is very much visible these days for a showbiz coming, finished first runner-up to a more buff and unblemished chinito by the name of Harry Chua. Methinks Kaisan can always try again, as he is still young, inexperienced, and untouched by cosmetic science.

WITWI Tonio Ortigas

Where in the world is Tonio Ortigas? The dopey-eyed [note: Dopey of the seven dwarfs fame isn’t really dopey; he is simply childlike] actor-stripper rose to relative recognition by posing in gutsy naked photos at the time when the standard cover for the family jewels are speedos and jockeys and not books, fruits and flimsy loincloth. Tonio Ortigas made a couple or three films , the most memorable of which was his frontal nudity scenes in a dance sequence for Burlesk King [released 1999]. Eventually, he disappeared from the scene. He was last seen consorting inq7.net’s most-read columnist and real-life sex-and-tell hag, Dolly Anne Carvajal.

Where is Jon Hall?

Last seen at the Bench Fever concept show in June last year, British-Filipino Jon Hall has gone a-missin’ from the scene. Prior to that, he was one of the favored models in the Bench mansion. Lately, however, not much has been heard or seen about him. The 6′-tall model, who spent his first seven years in Cebu and the next decade in Florida came back to the Philippines with hopes of joining major basketball leagues. However, after talent casters discovered him, Jon Hall has blazed the runway in major ramp shows for top designers and brands. He also did two adult movies [Xerex and Sinful Nights].
