MUKHANG ang bagong hobby ngayon ng mga celebrity (especially those who are not doing much) is writing a book. Some of them become instant authors and never mind kung may duda kayo sa kanilang kakayahang magsulat. After all, ang kailangan lamang nila ay isang editor who will put into print ang mga salitang manggagaling sa kanilang mga bibig or own journals.
Celebrity mom and talent manager Annabelle Rama loves to talk and word for word mo lang itong isalin into a book and you’ve got a bestseller. She did just that although we still have to hear from National Book Store at iba pang bookstores kung totoo ngang bumebenta ang libro, ayon sa press release from her camp, or not.
At hindi nagpatalbog ang only daughter niyang si Ruffa Gutierrez who plugged her book sa ABS-CBN morning show na “Magandang Buhay”. And with a title like “The Truth and Lies My Mother Told Me,” tiyak na marami ang matutuksong bumili just to find out the “lies” Annabelle told Ruffa.
Ruffa loves to talk like her infamous mother. Makulay ang kanyang mga naging karanasan sa buhay especially in the love department. We still have to read her revelations on her relationships past and present. How she will defend her current love, Jordan Mouyal, na hindi type ni Annabelle na maging son-in-law (in the first place, sino bang suitor ni Ruffa ang pumasa sa panlasa ni Annabelle?) makes the book a “must” read.
The book is affordably priced na according to Ruffa has sold 3,000 copies to date.
Meanwhile, actor and former senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla, Jr. has all the time in the world inside the PNP Custodial Center to write his “memoirs” on being a ladies man. Any suggested title from our entertainment editor Mr. Eugene Asis? (What about “In & Out: The Life of the Man they Called Pogi.”--Ed.)

MMFF PARADE OF STARS, DINARAYO
EVERY year ay dinarayo ang Parade of Stars ng Metro Manila Film Festival at marami ay mula pa sa probinsiya. Dumugin kaya ang parada sa taong ito considering na hindi gaanong sikat ang mga sasakay sa float?
We also asked some people kung alin sa film entries ang kanilang papasukin and most of them had a hard time answering. Most of them replied: Super Parental Guardians at Enteng Kabisote. Well, mukhang “tapos” na ang MMFF para sa kanila dahil na-advance ang showing ng mga naturang pelikula.
On our part, we can only recall “Die Beautiful” ni Paolo Ballesteros na kahit paano ay may publicity at TV promo at ang “Kabisera” ni Nora Aunor dahil nagkaroon ito ng presscon na dinaluhan ng maraming “breadwinners”.
