WALANG KAALAM-ALAM SI Bacoor Representative Lani Mercado na ang chapel sa Glendale, California kung saan unang ikinasal sila ni Bong Revilla 24 years ago is now a burial site. Ito ang Forest Lawn where the remains of Pop Superstar Michael Jackson were buried.
Sa pagdiriwang kasi ng kanilang silver (25 years) wedding anniversary next year, the Revilla couple would like to renew their vows sa anila’y napakaromantikong kapilyang ‘yon, kung saan hanggang ngayon daw ay naka-preserve pa rin ang kanilang ginamit na wedding car.
Of course, it would be an entirely family event dahil nais ni Lani na makita ng kanilang mga anak ang pinagdausan ng kanilang pag-iisang-dibdib. Now past their 24th year, and going silver, nakatutuwang isipin that it’s not all failed marriages and broken unions that pervade in showbiz.
Huwag sanang masamain ni Senator Bong, but credit goes to his wife who, despite her partner’s “open secret” affairs with other women, has managed to keep their home strong and sturdy. Sa ngayon, Lani switches from home to office as she begins her official duties as Congresswoman-elect in Bacoor.
Correction lang po, Ate Lani. Wala pong plural form ang salitang “furniture.” You say pieces of furniture, not furnitures. Wala rin pong salitang “irregardless.”
HINDI NAMAN PALA exactly bibitiwan ni Kris Aquino ang kanyang showbiz commitments now that in a matter of days, kaagapay rin siya ng kanyang kuyang Pangulo in reaching out to the kababayans across the nation who helped Noynoy become the biggest political figure that he is now.
Self-appointed “talent coordinator” lang naman ang drama ni Kris in yet another historic event, this time sa oath-taking ni Noynoy on June 30. Impressed anew by the performance of the dancing Velasco Brothers in ABS-CBN’s Pilipinas Got Talent, right then and there ay idineklara ni Kris na kailangang magtanghal ang naturang grupo sa makasaysayang okasyong ‘yon ng kanyang kuya.
Sige na, let’s give it to Kris, herself among the three discerning judges of PGT na nagpapatunay lang that she has an eye for talent when she sees one. Sana lang, ma-impress din si Noynoy who, if we may assume, is not a sucker for breakdancing stunts dala na rin ng kanyang pagiging simple at laid-back.
If only for the effort and his sister’s insistence, maaaring palakpakan ni Noynoy ang pambihirang number na ‘yon ng Velasco Brothers, but his appreciation towards the popular art of dancing is like a hollow block.
PASALAMAT SI LOVI Poe, hindi talakera ang direktor ng Sarap At Home, isang sitcom sa QTV11. Kinuhang guest for a product sponsored-episode si Lovi para sa taping nitong Sunday. Alas-diyes ng umaga ang call time, pero dumating ang aktres ng alas-dose ng tanghali.
Sa dalawang oras na pagka-late na ‘yon ni Lovi, katumbas na ‘yon ng tatlong episode para tuhugin ng direktor. Galit na galit na rin ang kliyente who wanted Lovi replaced by another actress. Finally, Lovi came, sneaking into another part of the studio unnoticed, who looked as if she just jumped out of bed. Marami tuloy ang naghinala na problemado ang hitad sa kanyang politician-boyfriend. Malamang!
