Scandal-prone celebrity lights candle in Baclaran
By the Entertainment staff MANILA, Philippines—Controversial Celebrity gives new meaning to the word “piety.” CC was spotted, with good friend Singer-Actress, lighting a candle in Baclaran Church. Perhaps CC and SA are praying that the latest scandal that hit them would soon blow over. But then again CC also brought along a nanny and five bodyguards to the church —the nanny to carry an expensive Hermes Birkin croc skin bag and the bodyguards to keep the hoi polloi away. Or is the beefed-up security meant to shield CC and SA from their latest enemy—a rather Outspoken Personality? Pulled out After much speculation, GMA 7 issued a statement on Thursday saying that “it has pulled out Sunshine Dizon” from the afternoon soap ‘Tinik sa Dibdib’ due to health reasons.” GMA 7 said that “Dizon’s condition would make it impossible for her to perform as an actress” and that the network had “advised her to rest in order to fully recover.” Although the statement didn’t address the rumor, a network source denied that Dizon is pregnant. The insider said it could be due to Dizon’s “severe migraine,” the same reason that forced her to quit an earlier soap, “Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan.” Kapuso talent Nadine Samonte will replace Dizon on “Tinik... ” Smear campaign Word reached Movie Director 1 that Movie Director 2 was on a war path. MD2 was allegedly badmouthing MD1. MD1 was unperturbed because MD2 supposedly engaged in the smear campaign for business reasons. MD1 knew that MD2 just got insecure. A high-profile client chose the former over the latter, that’s why. Manager’s complaint Talent Manager is fed up with a certain Movie Insider. Seems TM’s Prized Ward is perennially short of cash because of MI. TM thinks PW is spoiling MI. Every time PW goes abroad, MI expects expensive gifts as pasalubong. “MI is worse than PW’s former lover ... a gold-digger,” TM huffed and puffed. Timely Most winners in the game show “San Miguel Beer Oktoberfest Barkada Challenge” (Mondays to Fridays within GMA 7’s “Rosalinda” time slot) are reportedly from flood-hit areas. Recently, 17 winners shared the P1-million cash prize. One of them, a father from Marikina, said he will use the money to fix his house. Another winner, from Pasig, said she will save part of the cash and use some of it to replace her kids’ uniforms and school supplies damaged by Tropical Storm “Ondoy.” * * * Top of the tabloids The top show biz stories in PDI tabloid Bandera this week.
