Unang kaldero na ginamit ni Diwata sa Paresan, ibinenta kay Boss Toyo

Boss Toyo acquired another good collectible after internet sensation Deo Balbuena, better known as Diwata, sold the first cooking pot he used in his Paresan business.

In one of the episodes of “Pinoy Pawstar,” Diwata visited Boss Toyo’s shop to offer the cooking pot he used before gaining fame on social media.

Diwata also narrated how he decided to establish his Paresan business along Roxas Boulevard, where he lived as a homeless man.

At first, Diwata initially wanted to sell his pot for 3,500 pesos, but Boss Toyo tried to haggle the price to P3,000.

Diwata signed the pot to prove its authenticity and increase its value.

Diwata even offered his flip-flops as a freebie, but Boss Toyo refused to accept it.

Boss Toyo planned to display the pot in his future museum, which is about Philippine pop culture, to immortalize the legacy of Diwata.

“Yung buhay niya galing sa hirap, umangat ‘yung buhay. Yun ang ginagawa ni Pinoy Pawnstars, ang maipaalala sa lahat ng henerasyon at mananatili tayong institusyon,” he stated.

Diwata became one of the most popular internet celebrities this year after being heavily covered by content creators.

However, he also received criticism due to his attitude of occationally ignoring his fans.

Vice Ganda, binanggit muli si Cristy Fermin sa It’s Showtime

Veteran columnist Cristy Fermin received another shoutout from Vice Ganda during one of the recent episodes of the noontime show It’s Showtime.

During the episode, It’s Showtime host Jhong Hilario recognized Vice as a ‘woman,’ which prompted the latter to insist that he was a man, referring to Cristy’s criticism of him.

“Ganyan talaga kayong mga babae,” Jhong said.

“Bakla ako! Bakla ako! ‘Wag mong sabihin ‘yan! Magagalit si Cristy Fermin. ‘Hindi ka babae, Vice Ganda!’ Sabi niya, ‘Bwak, Bwak, Bwak, Bwak, Bwak, Bwak, Bwak’,” Vice responded.

Cristy, a critic of Vice, was known for questioning the identity of the It’s Showtime host, saying that the Kapamilya comedian should not consider himself a woman.

To prove her point, Cristy said that Vice would still do the habits of ordinary men.

“Vice Ganda, hindi ka tunay na babae, lalake ka,” said Cristy. “Nagpapanggap ka lang na babae, ngayon kapag bumibiyahe ka sa isang mahabang mahabang kalye, tinawag ka ng kalikasan, bababa ka sa sasakyan [at] hahanap ka ng puno at doon ka ji-jingle,” 

Cristy also criticized Vice’s attitude, saying that he had been swallowed by his popularity, which, according to her, would eventually fade.

Meanwhile, Vice’s fans urged the comedian to make Cristy accountable to her statement.

Sikat na ‘lock’ issue, scripted lamang umano ayon sa ilang netizens

A video taken in Indonesia was making rounds on social media due to its bizarre content, showing an alleged rare case of ‘vaginismus.’

The video published by Gubes Mamaz Karyo showed a couple that couldn’t separate themselves and tried to be helped by their relatives.

Many netizens online thought that it was real, but according to some people who watched the whole video, the channel where the video was uploaded wrote a disclaimer that everything they published was scripted.

“Ang palabas na ito ay hango sa isang kwentong bayan at purong kathang-isip lamang. Kung may pagkakatulad man ang pangalan ng isang tauhan, lugar ng pangyayari, o kagananap ay ito’y nagkataon lamang,” the disclaimer reads when translated to Filipino.

The said channel was known for publishing exaggerated content; every video they published also went viral on social media.

An Indonesian also said that many of his countrymen were already aware that the videos being published by Gubes Mamaz Karyo were pure fiction only.

Meanwhile, experts said that people should stop spreading false information about the channel and inform the netizens about the real story behind the video.

There were only a few cases of vaginismus that have been reported throughout history, and while there were recorded videos showing its actual case, it was not medically proven to be true and also possibly made for the content.

Lolit Solis, sinabing uulitin parin ang ‘Manila Film Fest Scam’ kung ibabalik ang panahon

Talent manager and columnist Lolit Solis said that if she could rewind time, she would repeat her involvement in the Manila Film Festival scam.

During her 77th birthday celebration on May 19, 2024, Lolit said that she had no regrets about the controversy she faced in the past.

“The biggest mistake na nagawa ko pero hindi ko pinagsisihan… siguro if I will live my life again, gagawin ko uli, yung scam,” she said. “Pero dun ko na-realize… sa kasalbahihan ko, akala ko, iiwanan ako ng lahat, di ba? Na you’d be alone kasi gumawa ka ng kasalanan. Lahat na, galit sa yo,”

“Pero, no! Dun nga lalong na-feel kong… kaya yata ako naging lalong salbahe, kasi nakita ko talaga lahat… lahat ng alaga ko, ipinagtanggol ako,” he added.

It can be recalled that Lolit was almost put behind bars in 1994 due to her involvement in the Manila Film Festival, where she conspired to announce Gabby Concepcion and Ruffa Guttierez as winners of Best Actor and Best Actress instead of the real recipients of the award, Edu Manzano and Aiko Melendez.

Many personalities were involved in the issue and even got nationwide coverage.

Gabby decided to leave Lolit’s management after the issue.

Diwata, tumanggi na batiin ng ‘Happy Birthday’ ang isang content creator

Diwata received criticism on social media after a content creator published a video showing how the internet sensation refused to greet him with a happy birthday.

In the video published by Yves York Serneo could be seen while approaching Diwata in his Paresan.

Yves asked Diwata to greet him for his birthday, but the internet celebrity refused and even told him that his special day would eventually pass.

“Lilipas din yan kuya,” said Diwata.

The content creator was visibly embarrassed by the incident.

It can be recalled that some netizens were speculating that Diwata was already tired of interacting with ordinary content creators due to his connections with famous influencers who visited him and showered him with gifts.

They also reminded Diwata about his roots and told him that it was the ordinary people who helped him to become popular.

“Diwata nyo di Yan n mamansin kpag small creators or ordinary people k lng,pero kpag sikat n blogger,CEO ka tapos may binigay k sa knyang welcome n welcome cla ni diwata.simple pa shout out lng di magawa eh KC kuya Wala ka bigay..if Meron naku bilis p sa alas kwarto bbati sya sayo,” netizen Lhyn said.

Pelikula ni Paolo Contis, nilangaw umano ayon sa isang direktor

Movie director Ronaldo Carballo revealed that two recently released Filipino films were considered a flop.

In his Facebook post, Carballo discussed the low ticket sales of Isang Gabi, starring Coleen Garcia and Diego Loyzaga, and Fuchsia Libre, which was led by Paolo Contis and John Arcilla.

The director expressed his frustrations due to the low support of local films.

According to him, people now prefer to watch their films via online streaming platforms.

“Wala na talaga sa formula yan. Kahit sinong artista ihain mo, ayaw ng tao. Ayaw na talaga ng mga tao manood ng local film sa sinehan,” he said.

“Ang mahal talaga ng panonood ng sine, kumpara sa ang mura naman ng Subscription ng Netflix at pwede pang ipasa sa iba ang Subscription ng libre,” he added.

He suggested that it would be better for producers to just collaborate with online streaming platforms.

“Kaya the best thing talaga ay i-produced ang Pelikula with Netflix quality at ibenta diretso sa Netflix, upang hindi naman laging luhaan ang Producer na walang bumabalik sa ipinuhunan,” he stated.

Most of Carballo’s friends agree with what he said.

“Wala kasing kalatuy-latoy ang mga Tagalog movies ngayun. Sa Title pa lang ng mga movies na nakikita ko ngayon, ay di ka mae-enganyo na manood. Tapus sa kwento o istorya, ay yun at yun pa rin. Walang bago. Minsan kopya pa sa mga banyagang pelikula. At minsan naman walang kalidad ang pagkakagawa. Parang projects lang ng mag-aaral sa Mataas na Pamantasan yung movie, at kadalasan mas maganda pa nga yung gawa ng estudyante lang. Paano pa kaya makakabangon ang Pelikulang Pilipino sa pagkakalugmok nito?” netizen Max said.

“FilmMakers have fo understand the need of the consumers. Dapat naka align sa nangyayari sa marketplace . They are moving away from expensive things., and membership club and subscription based companies are the in thing ngayon,” netizen Mariah remarked.

Xian Lim, inamin na hiniling kay Kim Chiu na i-anunsyo ang kanilang breakup noong nobyembre palang

Xian Lim admitted that he asked his ex-girlfriend, Kim Chiu, to announce their breakup since last year.

In an interview with the Inquirer, Xian said that since last year, he has been criticized online due to netizens’ uncertainty regarding the status of his relationship with Kim.

Due to the criticisms he received online, Xian said he ‘begged’ Kim to release a statement to announce their breakup.

However, Kim asked him to postpone their announcement due to work-related reasons.

“I was actually begging Kim, saying we should release a statement that we’ve already gone our separate ways, that we separated on good terms at walang sigawan. Of course, there were tears, pero walang masamang tinapay. I said, ‘Can we just release it? A lot of people are getting dragged into this, including my mom and grandmother,'” said Xian.

“I begged her that both of us could release a statement, but she said not yet because they’re doing the press launch of her series. I said, “But this isn’t work-related. It’s personal.” That’s the truth to it,” he added.

Last December, Kim finally announced that she parted ways with Xian already after 12 years of relationship.

Several months after their breakup, Xian admitted that he was dating film producer Iris Lee.

Wally Bayola, nakita kasama ang dating EB Babe dancer na si Yosh Rivera

The meeting between Eat Bulaga hosts and former members of EB Babes gained attention on social media after some netizens started to reminisce about the past.

In an Instagram post, Ciara Sotto published the meeting between the Dabarkads and former EB Babe dancers Yosh Rivera and Mergene Maranan.

“Photos from that super fun night,” she shared.

Ciara didn’t elaborate on the purpose of the meeting, but some netizens believed it was just a normal reunion between the Dabarkads.

The photo quickly went viral as many netizens thought that Wally and Yosh had no connections since the issue happened in 2013.

It can be recalled that Wally temporarily left Eat Bulaga after a video of him with Yosh went viral on social media.

Yosh also quickly left EB Babes and decided to pursue a private life.

Wally returned to Eat Bulaga and became one of the few celebrities who survived a big controversy.

However, even today, the said ‘controversy’ is still mentioned from time to time by the netizens, but Wally has already learned how to ignore it.

Some netizens made their comments after seeing the photo.

“Talamak talaga sa eb na pinapatos pati co host nila… ilang beses na nagyari to kay bossing and then nagka anak pa nga sila ni connie r while married kay dina,” a netizen said.

“Girl, bata kapa nung nakuha ni Wally at maganda. May career ahead of you that could change your life. Sayang talaga. Babalik ka lang din pala kay Wally. Jusko di naman ganun kayaman si Wally tapos hindi pa gwapo at higit sa lahat may asawa. Pwedeng pwede ka makakuha nuon ng mayaman, gwapo at binata. Sinira ni Wally buhay mo,” another netizen remarked.
