When I was small, and too young to understand…

by: rddantes April 18, 2007 | 3 Comments |
…I had the biggest crush on Enrico Quizon. Eric first came to the spotlight as the Comedy King’s model son in the first models-only Bodyshots contest [sponsored by the Fashion Designers Association of the Philippines ] in 1986. Although Eric did not win the prize [which went to Leo Rabago in the professional division, and Bernard Navarro in the amateur division ], he went on to get offers in modeling stints and movie projects. He had a nice bod at that time, and his speedo pics can attest to that. So, when I was small and too young to understand, I had the ultimate fool’s paradise in the person of this guy. I met Eric when I was already of age, and legally cognizant of matters, affairs, intercourse and annals of life. He is now the director of GMA-7’s adventure series, Asian Treasures.

Where in the world is Allyson VII? In the 90s whenever movie director Maryo J. delos Reyes wanted a young actor who can strip in his flicks, he would always cast a relative unknown player distinctly known as Allyson VII. And just like Direk Maryo’s stable of studs, he was gay magazine fodder in his skimpy speedos and tighty whities. He was last memorably seen in the depressing movie Paraiso ni Efren starring Anton Bernardo and the arthouse favorite Magnifico. Composite photo below is fairly recent showing a portly Allyson, now married with one child

Bruce Quebral goes to Slovenian Big Brother

by: rddantes April 17, 2007 | Add Comment |
The local edition of Big Brother recently announced on the show that on 19 April, “Basketball Hunk” Bruce Quebral will board a plane to Slovenia and room in with that country’s BB edition. Bruce, who knows nothing about the swap until he boards the plane, will be in Slovenia for a week. Methinks that would be awfully traumatic; imagine, of all horrors, being told that you will be thrown into where-the-heck-is-Slovenia when you are already on the airplane! According to the Slovenian Big Brother management, they selected Bruce for the inter-country swap [one Slovenian girl, Tina, will join Pinoy Big Brother] because of his good looks as there are not enough handsome guys in the BB house. Here’s hoping a more liberal Slovenian house will show Bruce in more ways we can imagine.

The exploitation [mini] saga continues..

[l-r: Harold Montano, Kryven Lacson and AJ Smith]

At the office of the Quezon City Assistant Prosecutor Laurence Chua Cheng earlier in the day, the case of the male boldies was heard against the fake movie producer [see link ] Apparently, it was a criminal case for Acts of Lasciviousness. The protagonists were there – Twilight Dancers bit players Harold Pineda [he looks better in person] and Kryven Lacson [frankly he looks better and slimmer in person, too; the last time I posted his pics I got cursed twice over, I wonder why], and The T Show resident twinkie AJ Smith, half-Filipino, Half-Lebanese cutie. The case has sparked some reviling vigilance in the public forum threads of TV station GMA 7 [which featured, rather staged the story], which comments generally condemned the guys for merely “looking for publicity” as they were seasoned veterans of bare-all shows and movies. Someone even quoted as follows: “they are known stripteaser gays- gold diggers and cheap sex slaves of foreign customers hired around the makati/malate district…they have pending galloping credits to be paid and need big amount of money to pay them out, their souls!!! ” [I’m just quoting guys from link]. Let’s see what happens next then.

Michael Raymond Lim quits Provoq Men!

by: rddantes | 2 Comments |

Thanks to Carlita von Shuewmel from Jax, FL, I was informed that my favorite member of Provoq , Michael Raymond Lim has quit the group. That is awfully sad [think, he won’t be doing that stripping thing anymore]. Raymond, who is the tallest in the group at 6’2″ is a graduate of the Far Eastern University and STI-Makati. He has modeled for Bench Fever last year for Cecille Zamora’s designs. At present the guy is scouting for modeling projects and mainstream movie employment. When asked why he quit the group, he simply replied that he didn’t get his fame from his derring-do, so he just left. For more news, see link.

Anziehend! Michael Seifert!

The Chlorella Growth Factor [CGF] must have worked wonders on this kid. Now that he is of legal age, we can now feature Michael Seifert, erstwhile model of the Cherifer [with taurine and CGF] growth and weight promoting vitamins for children. At the recent gala night of the 2007 Philippine Fashion Week, many were wondering who the hunky model was. Apparently, he has bulked up and, er, grown. He is half-German, half-Filipino [mom is from Bacolod City], and a former child commercial model [together with his sister, Sandra – cohost of that midnight show on GMA 7, Walang Tulugan]. Michael went to Brent International School-Manila and speaks four languages fluently – German, English, Filipino and French.

Papi Jay Manalo!

To complement the post of my friend [see Jay Manalo, rags-to-riches hunk post], here’s one of Raymund Isaac’s earlier photos of Jay Manalo, the quintessential poster boy of queer mags at that time. The half-Filipino, half-Vietnamese hunk went on to appear in mainstream movies and tv series, thereby establishing himself as a legitimate actor. When the Isaac photos of Jay Manalo first appeared in local magazines in the late 90s, they caused quite a stir as there were unedited portions showing his pubes and member, which in that era was a big deal big-time!

Dick-A-Day: Alberto de Esteban

by: rddantes | 9 Comments |

Alberto de Esteban was last seen on TV in August last year as a guest of Moms, a mommy talk show on QTv. Together with Romano Vasquez and Jon Romano, they discussed male prostitutes in the episode’s “Love for Sale” theme [snickers]. Alberto started out as a dancer in a gay strip club in Quezon City. He then strayed into the movies which required him to bare, natch! His break came in 2004 when he was cast in the Nora Aunor-starrer Naglalayag, where he played a gay cab driver.
