G-ford Lara, half of the bod-to-die-for brother-models team [the other being CJ Lara], is 28 years old and single. He has been modeling for quite some time now for A-list designers and brands in the country, most notable of which were assignments for Bench Underwear and Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Eligible Bachelors Show. CJ has also appeared in a movie, the unlamented Xerex Files Trilogy, where he played a deadbeat fiancée in the “O” episode of said film.
Victor Basa, [21 years old, model-turned-actor-signer] spent the Holy Week vacation in a Batangas beach with friends like model Carlos Concepcion and the latter’s girlfriend [photos above]. It seems like the guys had fun and Victor, although single, didn’t mind mugging for the camera alone. In a recent interview with Him Magazine [cover: Lino Cayetano], it was revealed that his father was a lawyer [who died a few years back from throat cancer] and his mother “dabbled in painting.” His uncle is flamboyant designer Paolo Basa [it was erroneously reported before that the designer is Victor’s pop]. When asked about his mother in the interview, he was hesitant to talk about her, and merely mumbled “she is somewhere doing her own thing.” That is awfully sad, as it was implied that he is not that close to his mother; incidentally, he moved out of the family home in Valle Verde across the street, and lives with his 10-year old brother. Here’s wishing more luck in the biz for this smart and deep young man.
