Katy Perry Video On Sesame Street Banned

This is because of the low-cut dress of Perry showing her cleavage while singing with Elmo her “Hot n Cold” rendition on Sesame Street.

Robin and Mariel’s Wedding in Baguio Not True

Just recently, it was reported that Robin Padilla marries Mariel Rodriguez in Baguio City on September 13, 2010. The report was first heard over ABS-CBN where the couple works. The said wedding of Mariel and Robin was confirmed by the Ibaloi Mamburong priest who officiated the said ceremony.

When interviewed by ABS-CBN, the native priest declared it was true. At first, he thought that it was just a movie shoot but when he asked Robin if it’s really a wedding, Robin said yes, so he immediately started.

However, Robin denies wedding with Mariel when asked during his press conference for his foundation Liwanag ng Kapayapaan. According to Robin, there’s no wedding that happened.

“Hindi po iyan kung ano ang mga bagay na ating nakikita at naririnig ay yun na po yun,” Robin said.

According to Robin, they could not confirm everything because that was for their upcoming program with ABS-CBN. If it was really for their upcoming show, why ABS-CBN news did not know it? Was it part of the plan? A publicity stunt maybe?

Mr. Raffy Sazon (Mariel’s Lolo) was interviewed by E-Live and according to him, Mariel informed him through text that Robin and Mariel would have an Igorot wedding. He was surprised though but already knew about it when Mariel texted him.

“Sabi niya, ‘Lolo what do you think of an Igorot wedding?’ Sabi ko, ‘Well that’s great. Type ko yan, maganda yan, just let me know kung kailan.’ Tapos matagal bago siya nagtext back. Sabi niya, ‘Lolo tapos na.’” Mr. Sazon added.

Mariel’s lola was also emotional when asked. She sent her best wishes to the couple and asked Robin to take care of Mariel and never hurt her.

Willie Revillame Confirmed To Work With TV5

Despite his legal issues with his former network, Willie Revillame is finally a TV5 talent. TV5 said that, Willie Revillame is now a certified talent of the said network.

According to reports, Willie’s lawyers settled the legalities of his situation and gave him the go signal to sign up with TV5.

In the official press release of TV5, it was stated that Willie Revillame will host a new variety and game show entitled “Willing Willie” on primetime.

Report said that TV5 took some time to examine thoroughly the legalities and technicalities of Willie’s transfer.

Here’s the official press release of TV5 Network:

“Fans, supporters and viewers of popular host Willie Revillame will surely have reason to rejoice because their idol will definitely return on TV as a certified talent of the newest and most aggressive broadcast network in the country, TV5. Now an official TV5 Kapatid, Willie will soon be hosting a new variety and game show entitled Willing Willie on primetime which will surely endear him more to his legions of followers all across the country and around the world. The program is managed by Wil Productions Inc. and is co-produced with TV5.

“‘In a contract signing held recently, TV5 Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan (MVP), welcomed Willie in the network’s stable of growing talents. ‘We have responded to the public clamor and we look forward to collaborating and working with the team of Willie and (Viva) Boss Vic del Rosario in bringing the audience the best in Philippine entertainment,’ MVP said.

“Willie rescinded his contract with his former network after his lawyers settled the legalities of his situation and gave him the go-ahead to sign up with TV5. This is good news to all his supporters and fans who felt deprived when the host ceased to appear in his previous noontime show. Willie is undoubtedly one of the few local personalities with a huge worldwide following and TV5 is answering the strong clamor for his return with a new show that will feature him at his best-giving out oodles of prizes and cash to studio audiences and viewers everywhere.

“‘It took some time for us to give Willie the go ahead to sign up with a new network because we had to meticulously scrutinize all the technicalities and legalities of the former contract. We wanted to make sure that his transfer will be as smooth as possible, without further legal drawbacks and hitches that can hamper his growth in his new network. With everything we’ve done and the actions that we plan to do, we believe that Willie is on the clear to work and grow anywhere he wants,’ stated Willie’s lawyer, Atty. Joel L. Bodegon.

Shaina and John Lloyd Malicious Rumor Not True

The alleged rumor about John Lloyd and Shaina is not yet over since it is still spreading like wildfire. The young couple became talk of the town over the Internet about the nasty rumor.

It was remembered that it all started in a blind item about two young couple being rushed into the hospital after suffering from a very rare medical condition.

According to Wikipedia, the said genital condition is a rare case and the rarity of occurrence have created a situation in which many medical professionals believe the condition is non-existent.

What funny though is that, there are some changes in the original story that first came out. The original settings where the said incident happened and the original date when it was happened as it was reported was changed. So, it’s like me asking, what is the real story and is this really true?

Even the writer of the said blind item Ruben Marasigan cannot confirm if the said issue was true. He told PEP in a phone call conversation that the first time he heard about it was on August 25. When you said “I just heard about it” it’s absolutely baseless unless someone showed a proof of the said incident.

According to him, he is also in doubt of the veracity of the rumor and had wrote that they still need to find out if it’s true or it’s just purely “tsismis”.

Reports show that there are different dates mentioned when the incident happened. Someone wrote it happened September 3 while the other said “madaling araw ng Sabado,” September 4. One said they were rushed in St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City then the other one in St. Luke’s Global City.

If Ruben Marasigan overheard it on August 25 and wrote it on August 27, the said incident should suppose to happen before August 25 granting that it was true. But according to rumors, they were rushed on September 3? Funny how the dates are being jumbled. So, it’s like no one can give a specific and concrete details.

It’s more than three weeks but there’s no one claiming that they saw the incident or that they have pictures to show for proof. That is why, Shaina Magdayao is challenging those people who created the issue to show up and show some proof.

The Star Magic is now taking actions to investigate the roots of the said malicious intrigue about John Lloyd and Shaina Magdayao.
