‘Singer’ na pumalit bilang presenter ni Eva Darren, tinapos na ang katahimikan: “May Lord Jesus Christ ako sa buhay ko!”

The singer was described as the one who replaced veteran actress Eva Darren as presenter of the Filipino Academy of Movie Arts and Sciences Awards (FAMAS) at the last minute and broke her silence on the issue.

In her Facebook post, Sheena Palad responded to the netizens who criticized her after she replaced Eva during the event.

According to her, she was supposed to perform only during the awards night, but a staff member of FAMAS asked her to become a last-minute replacement for Eva, who was already at the venue at that time.

“Pinuntahan po ako ng staff sabi niya ‘Sheena can we ask a big favor from you?’ sabi ko ‘Yes, what’s that?’ tapos ang sabi niya ‘Can you present the award’ sabi ko ‘okay sige, no problem’ that’s it, ‘yun lang po ang alam ko,” she said.

“Hindi ko po alam na si Miss Eva ‘yung magpe-present [ng award]. Sa totoo lang po I’m also clueless, hindi po kasi ako nanonood ng awards night, I was at the holding area so hindi ko po alam kung paano mag-present,” she added.

In her caption, she also declared that Jesus Christ would protect her from the criticisms.

“Buti na lang may Lord Jesus Christ ako sa buhay ko. Honestly, Hindi ko kaya to! It’s also a lesson for everybody to not QUICKLY judge a person,” she said.

It can be recalled that Fernando de la Perna said that his mother was supposed to become one of the presenters of FAMAS together with Tirso Cruz III and even prepared well for the event.

“Mom was excited, bought the best dress and pair of heels she could afford and topped that with a nice package of hair and make up for the gala. During the event, she brought along three of her very proud grandkids. With a price tag of P5,000 ($90) per plate for four people, needless to say, it was not a cheap evening. It was all worth it though. After all, the last time she was on stage during a FAMAS awards night was back in 1969 when she received the coveted “Best Supporting Actress Award” for her role in the movie ANG PULUBI (The Beggar) opposite legendary actress Charito Solis,” he wrote.

“After the glitz and glamour shots with air-cheek-kisses and what not, everyone eventually took their seats and the awarding commenced. During the point where she was supposed to present an award, her partner, Mr. Tirso Cruz III went upstage with an upcoming young singer instead. Not my mom,” he added.

Meanwhile, FAMAS only said that they couldn’t find Eva during the event, which prompted them to replace her.

Direktor na tinawag na ‘baluga’ si Miss Universe PH 2024 Chelsea Manalo, itinanggi na ‘namemersonal’ siya

The director, who received criticism on social media after calling Miss Universe Philippines 2024 winner Chelsea Manalo “Baluga,” made an explanation in an attempt to pacify the netizens.

It can be recalled that Director Ronaldo Carballo went viral on social media after he expressed his disappointment over the result of Miss Universe Philippines, which was held last week.

Carballo was rooting for Miss Cainta Stacey Gabriel during the pageant.

“Nagpuyat ako sa puro commercial na Ms. Universe Philippines na yan. Tas, isang balugang Ms. South Africa look lang ang mananalo! Paanong nangyari yun?!” he said.

In another post, Carballo revealed that he received thousands of messages from the netizens due to his message against Manalo.

He insisted that he didn’t crossed the line in the way he criticized the results of Miss Universe PH.

“Kinukuwestyon nila ko, komo hindi pumapabor sa kanila ang aking opinyon.
Bakit daw negative ang reaksyon ko sa pagkapanalo ng Ms. Bulacan sa Ms. Universe Philippines 2024? Eh, kayo, bakit nyo sya gusto? Ganun lang yun. A matter of taste. Kani-kanya lang tayo ng bet,” he said.

“Nothing personal. Hindi ko naman sya kilala at all. Ang reaksyon ko ay base lang sa resulta ng Pageant. Pero incase makita ko sya ng personal at may pagkakataon, I will congratulate her sincerely bilang Ms. Universe Philippines, gayung sya ang napiling mag-represent ng Pilipinas sa Ms. Universe Pageant sa Mexico City,” he added.

Carballo also stood by his prediction that Manalo would never reach the Top 20 of Miss Universe 2024, which would be held in Mexico.

“So far, hindi pa ko nagkamali in the past results: Nung sinabi kong magiging Ms. Universe sina Katriona Grey at Pia Wurtzbach sa magkaibang taon, naging Ms. Universe nga sila talaga. Yung lahat din nang sinabihan kong, “She wouldn’t make it at the Ms. Universe”, hindi rin sila talaga lahat nagwagi. Andali naman kaseng i-judge ng Ms. Universe Pageant,” he stated.

Richard Gutierrez at Barbie Imperial, nakitang magkasama sa South Korea

Relationship rumors about Richard Gutierrez and Barbie Imperial were fueled after some netizens saw the two celebrities in South Korea.

A photo posted by netizen Barbie Yang, showed Barbie and Richard interacting with several fans who were working in the country.

Richard and Barbie were also confirmed to be traveling together as Richard was seen taking photos of Barbie.

It can be recalled that Barbie and Richard were rumored to be dating after the actor separated from his partner, Sarah Lahbati.

Sarah and Richard were separated last year for unknown reasons.

Sarah had already declared that her status was ‘single’ and that people could speculate about her.

Sarah refused to comment when asked about Richard’s possible relationship with Barbie.

However, some fans believed that netizens should stop speculating about Richard and Barbie’s relationship despite traveling together.

“Baka as a Friend lang yan at may movie sila.. Charooot hahaha,” netizen Jac said.

“Jusko barbie parang sayang naman yung ganda mo,” netizen Bin remarked.

Meanwhile, entertainment reporter and talent manager Ogie Diaz said that the close ties between Barbie and Richard may only related to the actress’ business.

“Okay. So, yung totoo niyan, si Barbie Imperial ay isa sa mga shareholders ng Tipsy Pig. So, ang may share si Barbie ay yung sa Tipsy Pig Timog, Q.C., at doon sa Alabang. So, bilang siya ay isa sa mga may-ari ay may obligasyon yung mga may-ari na pumunta sa kanilang mga negosyo para mag-entertain ng mga bisita,” said Ogie.

“Alam mo, kahit sino pang babae yan, lalo na kung ang lalaki o yung babae na-involve sa isang relasyon, sa isang hiwalayan, tiyak na tututukan ng mga Marites kung sino yung next na makakasama nila,” he added.

In the video, Philmar can be seen talking to Crissa Liaging in Siargao.

“For how many weeks staying here in siargao finally i saw you!” she said.

Some netizens couldn’t stop but overthink how Philmar looked at the eyes of Crissa during their encounter.

“Huhu kakaiba ang titig ni Philmar, wag naman sana,” a netizen said.

Aside from Philmar, Crissa also received negative comments from the netizens who asked her to stay away from Andi’s partner.

However, in another video, Crissa told the netizens to stop worrying, as she was nothing compared to Andi.

“Huwag niyong lagyan ng isyu ang pag-uusap namin ni philmar wala ako sa kalingkingan ng ganda ni Andi,” she said.

It can be recalled that separation rumors between Philmar and Andi circulated on social media, but the actress denied that she already ended her relationship with the professional surfer.

Philmar and Andi have been in a relationship since 2018.

“I think that’s what made me more comfortable with Philmar. Just like me only getting to know him, it’s the same for him because he didn’t know anything about me,” Andi said in a past interview.

“I had to share everything so that was really nice and refreshing. We got really close and we got along so well,” she added.

Isang direktor, tinawag na ‘baluga’ ang nanalong Miss Universe PH Chelsea Manalo

A director didn’t mince his words against the result of Miss Universe Philippines, where Miss Bulacan Chelsea Manalo was declared as the winner.

In his Facebook post, Director Ronaldo Carballo expressed his disappointment over the result of the pageant, saying that he was rooting for Stacey Gabriel of Cainta to win the competition.

He also couldn’t stop himself from pointing out Manalo’s skin color.

“Nagpuyat ako sa puro commercial na Ms. Universe Philippines na yan. Tas isang balugang Ms. South Afraica look lang ang mananalo! Paanong nangyari ‘yun?” he said.

“Ms. Cainta ang bet ko from the start of the Pageant. Maganda; sexy; at intelligent. Maganda magsalita; walang backel; Spontanous. Effortless. Natural. Pang-Ms. Universe talaga!” he added.

According to him, Manalo would not even enter the top 20 of Miss Universe 2024.

“Mark word, ni hindi papasok yang si Ms. Bulacan sa top 20 ng Ms. Universe! Andali namang i-judge, eh! Sinayang na naman nila ang chance na magkaroon uli sana ng ika-limang Ms. Universe ang Pilipinas, with Ms. Cainta na queenly’ng queenly ang aura at kabuuan niya,” he stated.

Carballo’s post received criticism from the netizens due to the director’s direct comment on Manalo’s skin color.

“Kalalaki mong tao ganyan ka magsalita taga ibang bansa kaba kuya o papansin ka para makilala ka ulet.Wala kabang mga kapatid kaibigan o nanay na babae.Sana po isipin po natin yong mga sinasabi natin sa kapwa Pilipinong kababayan natin,” netizen Belen said.

“Sobra naman po kayo. Dapat suportahan natin ang sariling atin. Maganda po si Ms. Manalo. Black is beautiful. Malakas ang laban natin sa Miss Universe. Bet ko siya ang mananalo ngayon,” netizen Carrie remarked.

As of writing Manalo has yet to give response to Carballo’s comment against her.

Bryanboy, kumain ng sardinas na nagkakahalaga ng umano ng isang milyong piso.

Social media celebrity and fashion influencer Bryanboy proved that even Sardines can also be luxurious.

In his Facebook post, Bryanboy responded to the viral sardines video of content creator Tito Mars, in which the latter is shown forcing himself to eat the canned goods.

To end the norm that Sardines are a ‘poor man’s dish’ Bryanboy claimed that he went to Louis Vuitton to buy a “limited edition” canned good, which, according to him, has a price tag of 18,000 euros or 1.13 million pesos.

The sardines were packaged inside a Louis Vuitton box and with cards.

Bryanboy didn’t hesitate to open it and taste it despite its price.

The influencer said the LV Sardines taste was “not bad.”

The video received millions of views from the netizens, and many believed that the Sardines were made by the luxury brand.

However, a simple browse of the Sardines brand would show that it only costs 5.99 Swiss Francs or 380 pesos.

However, some viewers quickly understood that the video was only a joke made by Bryanboy about the issue.

While it’s more expensive than ordinary sardines, the brand didn’t cost a million pesos as Bryanboy claims.

As of writing, Tito Mars has yet to give a response to Bryanboy.

Pagsasalita ng Mandarin ni Alice Guo, pinag-usapan ng mga netizen

Despite insisting that her mother tongue was Filipino, a past video showing Bamban Tarlac Mayor Alice Guo while speaking fluent Mandarin raised more questions about her real identity.

During the investigation of the lawmakers, Guo said she was a pure Filipino as she was born and raised in Tarlac.

She even said that her mother tongue was Filipino despite showing signs of difficulty in speaking the local language.

“Ako po ay lumaki sa Barangay Virgen Delos Remedios, Bamban, Tarlac. Ako po ay isang Filipino, lumaki po ako kasama po ang mga empleyado namin sa farm,” she said.

However, she said she didn’t know how to speak Kapampangan, which is also commonly spoken in her hometown.

Even her lawyer said that she was fluent in Tagalog.

“Ang mother tongue niya ay Tagalog,” Guo’s counsel, Atty. Alex Avisado Jr. said.

However, a video showing Guo speaking in Mandarin captured the attention of the netizens, saying that she could speak a foreign language without any effort.

The video was taken inside her office in Bamban Municipal Hall.

Some experts also pointed out how Guo was forcing herself to pronounce Filipino words with “r” as the said letter was pronounced differently in Mandarin.

As of writing, the investigation was still ongoing to uncover the real identity of Guo.
