Hi, PEPsters! Last Wednesdayâ€”April 25â€”Pia, Raymond, and I had a workshop and some kind of a brainstorming session with Direk Floy Quintos. Floy is the creative consultant and director of the longest-running showbiz-oriented talk show, Startalk.
Ang talino at creative ng Ate natin. Bongga! He gave us tips on becoming effective hosts of the newest center of showbiz entertainment news SHOWBIZ CENTRAL.
He even gave pointers to our writers on standing out in the sea of competition. Nawala tuloy ang kaba ko at ang pumalit ay excitement. A few hours after our workshop kasi, e, presscon na namin.Floy advised Raymond to get himself more acquainted with anything showbiz. Yes mga darling, our bunsoâ€”considering he was a
Pia was very attentive. Naloloka siya siguro sa lakas ng boses namin ni Floy at sa energy namin. May mga ideas ako na surprisingly, naisip din ni Floy. Sabi ko nga sa kanya noon, we have the same wave length.
Floy was a cast member of Temptation Island Live!. I produced and co-starred in that stage play a few years ago, and incidentally, it will have a repeat on July. Itâ€™s my way of paying my personal tribute to the late Direk Joey Gosiengfiao.At around 9:00 P.M., we started the showâ€™s presscon held at Annabelâ€™s, restaurant in Tomas Morato. Medyo late since we had to wait for Pia, who would be coming from GMA for her daily â€œChika Minute.â€ Pero mas late pa ang mga reporters since kasabay pala namin ang presscon ni Regine at Piolo for their movie in Star Cinema.As expected, I was asked by some reporters kung kumusta na raw ba kami ni Jobert Sucaldito.
Well, hereâ€™s the story.
Two days after I texted Tita Cristy Fermin (check my blog entry posted last April 11, itâ€™s entitled â€œA Sweet Holy Weekâ€) about praying for the recovery of her dad, she replied with her thanks.
My friend Roxy, whoâ€™s currently the supervising producer of The Buzz, approached me after that text exchange with Tita Cristy. Roxy is my nanay-nanayan since my college days in UST, and we’re both members of Teatro Tomasino. He said he is very proud of me for making the first move to make peace with Tita Cristy. He jested that Jobert wants to make peace as well.
I remember answering with, â€œPag-iisipan ko muna. At bakit ang bait niya lately? Siguro totoong pinagsabihan ng management â€˜no?â€
And then I told him, â€œTell Jobert, may taped akong guesting sa â€œBalakubakâ€ sa Nuts Entertainment at nilait ko sya doon. Ganti ko â€˜yon since wala akong radio program. â€˜Pag â€˜di siya sumagot doon, malamang batiin ko na siya.â€
I was sure nakarating kay Jobert ang aking mensahe. â€˜Di nag-comment ang bakla sa radio program niya at sa mga tabloids nya after my Nuts guesting that rated very well. (Read more… )
