SEXY YOUNG COMEDIENNE PREGNANT WITH HER MODEL ACTOR BF
Who is this sexy young comedienne who temporarily stopped her budding showbiz career and went abroad to hide her being in an “interesting stage”?
A few months back, her manager told production executives that his ward had to leave for abroad because her visa, which she has long waited for, has already arrived.
(Her father is said to be a US citizen and that she has been petitioned to join him abroad.)
It turned out that this sexy young comedienne had to hide her “situation” and deliver her child in the land of milk and honey.
Just who is the father of her “would-be” baby? Some say he was a basketball player. Some say he is a model. Some say he is an actor. The answer could just be: All of the above.
I wonder how her former actor-boyfriend feels about her rumored pregnancy.
Well, never mind him now—he has successfully moved on and has maintained a good relationship with the daughter of a hot mama.
FIRST CUT. DIREK JEFFREY JETURIAN’S FILM COMEBACK
I have always been a fan of Direk Jeffrey Jeturian’s works. For me, aside from Direk Lav Diaz, he is the best director of his batch. I remember how he made such a big entry in the industry with a small and heartfelt film via “Sana Pag-Ibig Na” by the late great Nida Blanca with Angel Aquino and then newcomer Gerald Madrid.
I also liked his films, like “Pila-Balde,” “Tuhog,” “Minsan Pa,” and “Kubrador.”
I also awaited for “Parangal,” which could have been his film directorial comeback—but unfortunately, television has gotten the best of him.
Now, after quite a long time, he is slated for a film directorial comeback in a material so unique and supervised by the great Armando “Bing” Lao and written by very able writer Paul Sta. Ana. Bisperas, is it!
In a nutshell, here is the gist of this gem of a movie: On the eve of Christmas, the Aguinaldo family’s residence is burglarized, causing its members to identify stolen items and uncover lingering sentiments they have hidden from each other. Amidst the tension brought about by the burglary, the Aguinaldo family realizes how treasured sentiments have been lost. Relationships have also evolved as they arrive from church to a house in shambles.
The film stars Tirso Cruz III, Raquel Villavicencio, Julia Clarete, Jennifer Sevilla, and Edgar Allan Guzman, ably supported by Aryanna Santiago, Jen Donaire, Kimmy Maclang, and Troy De Guzman.
The good news is that, Bisperas is part of the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival 2011. For all those who may want to catch it, here is the screening skeds.

FIRST READ. BEST-SELLING BOOK, NOW A CINEMALAYA ENTRY.
Quite a breakthrough in this year’s Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival is the film based on a popular novel with a very unique title, Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me.
It is based on the story of Eros Atalia, screenplay by Palanca Award winning writer Jerry Gracio, and under the direction of Erick C. Salud, who also directed the Betty La Fea and Mutya, and was recently hailed as best director in the recent Guillermo Mendoza Scholarship Foundation awards.
The story is about Karl Vladimir Lennon J. Villalobos, a.k.a. Intoy, who is secretly in love with his friend Jenny, the most beautiful girl in the campus.
Jenny is rich and quirky; Intoy is street-smart and ordinary. But this friendship is not simple, since Jenny has bestowed on Intoy some perks and privileges, including going to bed with her on the condition that they will not fall in love with each other.
Before graduation, Intoy feels that he has to shed his pretensions of being astig and finally profess his love for Jenny.
But he is devastated to learn that Jenny is pregnant. Worse, Jenny tells him: “Don’t worry, this is not yours.”
Ligo na U, Lapit na Me is an examination of postmodern relationship and the way this generation deals with their love and fear.
With lead stars—great indie finds—now indie prince Edgar Allan Guzman and indie princess Mercedes Cabral, the film also inlcudes Mel Kimura, Simon Ibarra, Tolyts “Shalala” Reyes, Evelyn Vargas, Beverly Salviejo, Malouh Crisologo, Jojo Saguin, Joseph Bitangcol, Lucky Mark Mercado, Joe Vargas, Christian Tan, Ian Lazibal, Alex Tiglao, Ardie Bascara. Introducing Victor Medina, son of the great character actor Pen Medina, with a special guest appearance of Luis Alandy.
Catch this great story of star-crossed love on these follow time and dates.
