Piolo Pascual is asking P1-Billion talent fee from ABC 5?

piolo pascual
There was a rumor that the hunk Piolo Pascual was offered by ABC 5 for the right price. This rumor has been lurking for awhile but Piolo was denying it. Lately the rumor said that he asked for a P1-billion talent fee which is good for three years. Since it is very high the station decided not to continue the contract. When Piolo was asked about this he just laugh and said that it is not true.

Here is the complete news about this article from ABS-CBN:

MANILA, Philippines – Are there truth to rumors that Piolo Pascual had demanded a whopping P1-billion talent fee from TV5 network?

Rumors also have it that Pascual’s asking price was too big for a 3-year contract that TV5 executives decided not to pursue the hunk actor anymore.

When told about the swirling rumors during a press conference for his Valentine concert, dubbed "Piolo meets the Maestro, Ryan Cayabyab," even Piolo Pascual was at a loss for words.

"Wow, sarap namang pakinggan noon. Sana totoo, wow. Pangarap lang po yon, bakit naman ganoon? Sobra naman yon," Pascual told

Will he leave his home network, ABS-CBN, if TV5 offers him P1 billion?

"Siyempre tao lang ako, pero sabi sa Bible kasi choose honor rather than riches. So, you have to protect your name before you be blinded by material stuff,” he replied. "I'm not closing my door pero epokrito naman ako kung sasabihin ko na ito na ako. I mean you know, we all want to spread our wings and we want to maximize whatever talents we are given."

But he quickly added: "Masaya pa ako. Wala po akong problema [sa ABS-CBN]."

Pascual is clueless how the issue of him transferring to another network started. He also belied reports that he already had a meeting with TV5 executives.

Switching networks is far from his mind since he is contented being a Kapamilya star, Pascual maintained. He added that he is satisfied and it shows in his “attitude toward work.”

He said he is also focusing more on how to further improve his craft “because [ABS-CBN has] been so nice to me and been so gracious.”

The actor stressed that he and ABS-CBN have a "good partnership." In fact, Pascual is set to renew his contract with ABS-CBN this February.

After his hit television series “Noah,” Pascual is lined up to do a movie with young actress Kim Chiu.

His Valentine concert with Cayabyab, meantime, will be held at the Philippine International Convention Center's Plenary Hall on February 14 at 8 p.m.

Iñigo, KC

Last Sunday, Piolo Pascual got a big surprise from his son Iñigo. As a birthday gift, Iñigo prepared a surprise video song number that was aired on musical variety show “ASAP.”

Since Iñigo's appearance on television, calls for him to join show business were renewed.

But if he has his way, Piolo Pascual said he will not allow his 13-year-old son to enter showbiz because he wants him to focus on his studies first.

“I was really caught unaware, it was really a surprise. They are all aware I’m trying to keep him from showbiz because nag-aaral ‘yong bata. Ayokong ma-divert ‘yong attention niya,” he said.

Piolo Pascual also reacted to reports that of Black Eyed Peas gave KC Concepcion, his rumored girlfriend, a Tiffany bracelet as a Christmas gift.

For the actor, it was not a big deal. “Even before they met up, she told me they were having dinner and he was inviting her to fly to the States. Binigay ko pa rin naman sa kanya ang choice,” he said.

When asked if he has met apl in person, he said: “Nakita ko lang sa ‘ASAP.’ Tiningnan ko from head to toe. Joke! (Laughs).” –With Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News

Ai Ai delas Alas got mad about Albert Martinez's Son

Ai Ai delas Alas
Ai Ai delas Alas got mad after learning that Albert Martinez son tweet about the last Metro Manila Film Festival awards that her movie is stupid. His son criticized the award giving body especially when Wenn Deramas won as best director for his "Tanging Ina" movie. Ai Ai said that the movie was the fruit of hardship and they tried their best to come up with the best movie. She said that it is not the movie but the respect for older people. Ai Ai is a friend of both Albert Martinez and Liezel. Ai Ai said that their son should learn how to respect older people.

Ai Ai has mixed emotion when she learned about the news from their son. It was learned earlier that Albert Martinez was snubbed by the jurors and was not even nominated as best director. On the other hand the director (Wenn Deramas) was disappointed by the tweet.

Here is the news taken from ABS-CBN:

Ai-Ai de las Alas surprised Sharon Cuneta at her birthday concert held at the Araneta Coliseum last Tuesday night (January 11). The Comedy Concert Queen performed a sexy and acrobatic dance number, saying that she was dedicating her performance to the birthday celebrant.

Ai-Ai is still overwhelmed by the box office success of her movie, Tanging Ina Mo: Last Na ‘To, which has already grossed P179 million. Ai-Ai expressed her gratitude to all those who supported her movie.

On the other hand, the comedienne expressed her dismay over the insulting statement of Alfonso Martinez—son of Albert Martinez and Liezel Martinez—which he posted on his Twitter account. Alfonso’s statement criticized the organizers of the Metro Manila Film Festival, because he was not satisfied with Wenn Deramas (Tanging Ina director) winning the Best Director trophy. Albert’s son also criticized Ai-Ai’s movie and described it as stupid. Albert was the director of another MMFF entry, Rosario, but the actor-director failed to get a nomination.

Ai-Ai said that she had mixed emotions when she read the message. “Halo-halo gulat, pagtataka, atsaka bakit kailangan niyang sabihin ‘yon?” she complained. “’Yun lang naman ‘yung akin, kasi pinaghirapan ang pelikula. Kapag wala kang masyadong alam tungkol sa industriya, I think wala ka namang masyadong karapatang magsalita ng ganon about stupidity.” The actress added that she did not like the “F” word that Alfonso used in his tweet. “Hindi ‘yun sinasabi ng isang taong nakapag-aral kaya nga ang sabi ko kaibigan ko si Liezel, kaibigan ko si Albert pero mas kaibigan ko si Liezel, sasabihin ko nga turuan n’ya ‘yung anak niya na gumalang sa matatanda.”

More than the movie, Ai-Ai pointed out that Alfonso should learn how to be respectful. “Hindi ito about the movie, about ito sa respeto mo sa kapwa mo. Hindi lamang respeto bilang tao sa industriya. Hindi ka magsasalita ng ganon.”

Liezel had apologized and justified that her son was just carried away by his emotions since his father was supposedly snubbed by MMFF. But Ai-Ai stressed, “Kahit na. Dapat pinapaliwanag nila sa anak nila na ang pagkatalo ay part ng buhay. Mga anak ko kahit matalo ako wala naman akong naririnig na ganun kaya siguro dapat i-guide ang mga bata.”

Asked if she tried to call up Liezel, Ai-Ai said that she does not know Liezel’s contact number anymore. “Pero dapat siguro personal siyang mag-sorry kay Direk (Wenn), tingin ko lang.”

Ai-Ai also defended Direk Wenn’s reaction on Alfonso’s tweet. She continued that it is normal that Direk expressed his disappointment with someone who does not see the whole picture. “Kasi hindi naman talaga maganda ‘yung statement and I think ‘yung mga tweet-tweet na ‘yan sana tigilan na ‘yung mga tweet-tweet na ‘yan kasi bukod sa negative siya, marami siyang sakit at away na nangyayari. Nag-aaway nagsasakitan, napaka negative, I think dapat itigil na lang ‘yan.”

Ai Ai wants to work with Oprah and Brad Pitt?

Ai Ai delas Alas
Really? I could not believe what I have read in a newspaper that Ai Ai after winning the Best Actress in the last Metro Manila Film Festival will want to work with famous celebrities in Hollywood? Is she dreaming or what?

Well of course Ai Ai delas Alas is just joking. She is in cloud 9 and said all of these things about working with Oprah and Brad Pitt. She even said that she want to include her lates film in Oscar. I am referring to "Tanging Ina" which garnered lots of awards. The film will be showned in some selected cities in United States this year.

Here is the news from ABS-CBN which I read:

MANILA, Philippines – If American talk show diva Oprah Winfrey knows what’s good for her, she would invite Comedy Queen Ai Ai delas Alas to be part of her newly launched OWN cable network.

In her interview with “The Buzz," delas Alas said, in jest, that “it will be good for you [Oprah], your business and your health” if she joins Winfrey’s new network.

The 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival best actress awardee made the statement after her manager and the show's host, Boy Abunda, told her that Winfrey might be scouting for new comediennes.

Still on cloud after her recent feat, delas Alas said she is now setting her eyes on Hollywood, especially that her award winning comedy movie, “Ang Tanging Ina Mo, Last Na ‘To,” will have an international screening at Milpitas Century Great Mall in California and Honolulu Regal Dole Cannery in Honolulu.

Delas Alas also invited Hollywood's power couple to her film's international screening. "I would like to invite Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in our international screening from January 7 to January 13," she said.

Delas Alas revealed she dreams of working alongside Pitt.

What if Jolie opposes the delas Alas-Pitt tandem?

"Sasabunutan ko siya. Bakit siya umaarte ng hindi tama. Sasabihin ko sa kanya, 'Bakit sa bansa namin, best actress ako.' Kapag sinabi niya, 'Ako, hindi.’ ‘O, tignan mo. Ako nga best actress, ikaw hindi," delas Alas joked.

She added: "Ito pa ang gusto ko. Gusto kong isali ang ‘Tanging Ina’ sa Oscars."

All of these were said in jest, of course. But for delas Alas, her Hollywood dream is not a far-fetched idea.


"With God, nothing is impossible" SAID Ai Ai.

What do you think guys?
