MEGAN Young is a member of Starstruck Batch 2 and she was one of the earliest contestants ousted from the reality show. But now, she’s much more active than any of the show’s four top winners: Ryza Cenon, LJ Reyes, Mike Tan and the now missing from showbiz CJ Muere. Her hit new primetime show “Alyas Robin Hood” is currently clobbering its competitor, “Magpahanggang Wakas”, which stars another Starstruck alumna, Arci Muñoz, who’s from Batch 3 and where Arci is now also more popular than the winners (Jackie Rice, the now missing Iwa Moto and Gian Carlos, and the late Marky Cielo.)
“Marami talaga akong blessings na dapat ipagpasalamat,” Megan says. “Buti na lang hindi ako naging impatient and I just waited that things will get better in their right own time. Sa ngayon, I really can’t complain, lalo na nga number one sa ratings ang show namin ni Dingdong (Dantes) and we all like to thank the viewers for watching us regularly every night.”
This week in “Alyas Robin Hood”, Megan as Dr. Sarri sees the remains of a baby found in a trash can, obviously the victim of the mysterious Dr. Benitez. It was referred to her by a secret caller and she suspects that the voice belongs to Dingdong as Pepe, who makes his own investigation about the strange case of kidnapped babies. Pepe and Andrea Torres as Venus attends a clandestine masquerade ball in a big warehouse where the tag is “Live forever”. It’s possible that the event has something to do with the kidnapped babies.
Pepe and Venus also plan to infiltrate the House of Aglaea where they suspect nefarious activities that have something to do with the missing babies are going on. Venus is shocked and horrified when she sees the real appearance of the kidnapped babies inside the horror house of Aglaea. Brace yourselves for more exciting plot turns in this week’s “Alyas Robin Hood”.
BREAK UPS AND RECONCILIATION
EVERYONE predicted that the relationship of Janine Gutierrez and Elmo Magalona will end up in separation after Elmo transferred to ABS-CBN. And this prophecy finally happened a couple of weeks ago. It’s good that they are said to be still in good terms and parted ways in an amicable manner.
“They hardly see each other na kasi,” says our source. “Unlike noong nasa GMA pa sila when they were paired in several shows at lagi silang nagkikita. Obviously, it’s not true that absence makes the heart grow fonder. And it’s not true that Janella Salvador is the cause of the breakup. Hindi nga kinagat ang show nilang ‘Born for You’ ni Elmo. Mas excited pa ang fans sa balik-tambalan nina Janella ang Marlo Mortel in Regal’s ‘Mano Po 7: Chinoy’ sa Pasko.”
Jake Cuenca also reported during the presscon of “Mulat” that he has broken up for good with model GF Sarah Grace Kelly. They’ve already parted ways before but got together again. “It’s not true that love is sweeter the second time around,” says Jake. “Long distance relationship simply doesn’t work since she’s in the U.S. and I’m here.”
The third couple to call it quits is Denise Laurel and Ginebra cager BF Sol Mercado. Denise was the one who broke off their engagement. Everyone is shocked since Denise painted the guy as an ideal mate who has even totally accepted her love son from a past relationship that also didn’t work.
Denise wrote this on her social media account after someone tagged her about the championship of Sol’s Ginebra team: “From now on Sol and I are just friends. I am very happy for him! But please don’t tag me on anything that has to do with him. We both tried our best. Please respect Sol. He did not cheat on me. He didn’t do anything wrong. He’s amazing and brought so much into my life. God has something planned for us both.”
But if there’s separation (hiwalayan), there’s also reconciliation (nagkabalikan). This is Zsa Zsa Padilla and Arch. Conrad Onglao, who’s also about to get married when Zsa Zsa broke up with Conrad, who then made a vow that he won’t stop until he has succeeded in winning her back. Obviously, he was successful in convincing Zsa Zsa to give him a second chance and hopefully, their wedding will finally happen this time. But close friends of Zsa Zsa feel nervous for her: “We thought nauntog na siya. But obviously, hindi siya nadala.” Other friends, though, believe the contrary: “Don’t be nega about it. Let’s just be happy for Zsa Zsa.”
SITTI CELEBRATES 10 YEARS
BOSSA Nova Queen Sitti celebrates her 10 years in the showbiz with a concert and an album launch. The concert billed “ElectroSITTI” doubles as her birthday celebration and is also the title of her new album. This is a two- day event set on November 25 and 26, 2016, 8 a.m. at the Music Museum. Her guests include Jason Dy, Loonie, Silver Filter and the UST Percussion Ensemble.
The concert is divided into two parts. The first part features Sitti as her old self singing her bossanova hits. She will also perform a cut from the new album entitled, Tangled. The second part will see Sitti in a combination of bossa nova songs and EDM (Electronic Dance Music) with her good friend DJ Silver Filter, who is a Pinoy DJ known in the indie scene. One of these songs is “Bid You Love”, about feeling too much and being filled with so much desire. Audiences can still chill out and dance at the same time.
Sitti notes that in the EDM scene, the singers have strong vocal prowess. Her cross over to Electronic Dance Music, Sitti believes, is one of God’s perfect plans. She is confident that
the SITTIZENS will like the new changes in life. “My fans are mature now and change has come. You just have to enjoy the ride without losing yourself along the way.” According to her, she is still the same old Sitti, only that, the music background has changed. “It’s a mixture of new elements. Its an experiment.” She doesn’t believe she has down sides in her life. Her career, her music, her fans, her family balance everything in her life.
Sitti is happily married to businessman and triathlete Joey Ramirez. She says that being married has worked to her advantage. Joey has given her courage and confidence. In fact, Joey is the first person who listens to her songs whenever she has new compositions. Joey is a church choir member and plays the guitar. She hopes that ElectroSITTI will reach a lot of people. Sitti’s last album was released in 2015 entitled, “Singles Bossa Nova III”. For tickets to ElectroSITTI call Ticket World, 891- 99-99.
