From the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Rushes Sunday: “Remember those bickering sexy actors who complained about each other’s unpleasant body odors before shooting a bed scene? It turned out they are now engaged in a three-way fight with another daring bimbo over showbiz projects. Seems these guys are more petulant than their female counterparts.” It seems the Inquirer people are just drumming up the buzz created by fans who are standing by their favorite Provoq man [ be it Harry, Justin or Johnron]. Remember there was even a heated exchange of harsh words in here, about who’s the hotter one? Besides, there are no showbiz projects, yet.
…of being wholesome and all. He declared in a magazine interview that he is willing to pose with just his skivvies on as he had the body to show off. John James Uy is the 5’10”-tall commercial model who was the first to be eliminated at the Be Bench Finals Night held recently. However, he was the first among the finalists to get a deal with the ABS-CBN network as he was cast as the third wheel of a popular love team in the Lovespell series.
Here are two guys in bikinis with bold floral prints – reminders of how we truly miss the hot Philippine summer. Racel Matic [left], was the winner of the Hataw Super Bodies Bikini Open in 2006. He is 23 years old and a graduate of Accountancy at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. On the other hand, hairy Rodel Carlos was a semifinalist in the same competition. He is 22 years old and a seasoned contestant of bikini competitions.
Big Brother House resident Jon Mullaly
revealed recently that he had an uncomfortable sense of belonging in England where he grew up. Emotionless, he was caught on cam revealing to a fellow resident that he did not feel welcome in England during his growing up years, that he always considered himself an outsider there, and that he wished he grew up here in the Philippines. Jon is finally loosening up inside the famous house. Maybe a little prodding from the other residents could push him to divulge more about his background, which – for now- has remained a mystery.
He is probably 25 years old by now. Lyan de Guzman used to be the top draw at the Club Hosto Bruno in Cubao, Quezon City. The 5’8″-tall club dancer was often mistaken as a Japanese guy, but he is a Filipino all the way. And all the way it is at the now-defunct gay bar for this chinito dancer. He also had dreams of entering showbiz then via the skin flicks, that is why probably he was convinced to posed naked for the local gay magazines of his time.
Of course, everyone knows by now the story about Sam Milby and Piolo Pascual [photo above
] courtesy of veteran showbiz writer and manager, Lolit Solis. Before the week ended, the two guys filed a case of libel against the writer for insinuating that the two were caught lovey-dovey inside Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel [the former Westin Philippine Plaza Hotel] on 12 October. The two actors denied they were at the hotel on that day. Ms. Solis of course stood by her story, even declaring that she has a video of Piolo Pascual going down a Hummer in front of the hotel lobby on that same day [even as she admitted she didn’t have a video of Sam Milby on that day]. The whole affair is getting messier, as the matter has been elevated to the court. And inside the courtroom, everyone on the witness stand is under oath, such that no one is supposed to lie.
In libel cases, every defamatory imputation is presumed to be malicious, even if it be true, if no good intention and justifiable motive for making it is shown. So, the truth may be given in evidence to the court and if it appears that the matter charged as libelous is true, and, moreover, that it was published with good motives and for justifiable ends, the defendant shall be acquitted.
This is a tall order for Ms. Solis as the defendant in the case. Maybe her good motive will be merely an innocent reporting of the incident inside the hotel. Maybe she can get witnesses from the hotel that the two guys were actually there. Of course, the hotel staff won’t give any testimony unless they want to lose their jobs. Suggestion: On 12 October, Ultra Mega Wholesale and Retail Mart had a large whole-day event at the Harbor Garden Tent, where big- name actors and singers entertained the suppliers and clients. There maybe some people – showbiz and corporate – who saw the two guys there in the coffeshop.
After finally proving his worth as a serious actor, sans the annoying accent, Rafael Rosell
is now elevated to leading man status. Rafael recently bagged the Supporting Actor plum at the film critics’ Gawad Urian for his role in the lesbian movie Rome and Juliet
. In a recent interview, Rafael noted that after winning the award, the press is now interested in his body of work rather than asking him about his body [due largely to his Bench underwear contract].
Ram Martin is 22 years old and a native of Binan, Laguna. He’s a bit player in the movies, among the ones who comprise crowd and party scenes, like in the Christmas flick Nine Mornings. Ram Martin is a student at the San Pedro College of Business Administration. He says he is a sports buff – into basketball, volleyball and billiards. He is also into mountain climbing.
Tall and tan Apollo Morales once dared to enter showbiz via the naked route. Unfortunately, the 5’11”-tall guy went in at the time the sex flicks of his era were on their way out. He is now 27 years old and probably back in his native Floridablanca, Pampanga [known for their buro delicacy].
is a 22-year-old bikini-pageant vet [e.g. candidate in Hataw Superbodies, Hot Bodies, Bikini Open] and freelance model. This native of Tondo – down by the waterfront – stands 5’11” tall and weighs 140 lbs. He is into basketball, working out, net games and playing the X-Box.
