Kris Aquino – Long Live Love

New  look Chris Aquino

New look Chris Aquino

Of all the Clan Aquino, Kris is my favourite. I find her refreshingly honest. With Kris, we know what we are up against! LOL   She can’t help herself but to tell the truth to anyone who listens.

I think Kris Aquino is born on the wrong time in the wrong country. If she had been born and raised in the west, Kris would not be getting some of the more veciferous comments about her life and lovelife. But then again, if she had been a westerner, she probably would not have the popularity she enjoys and endures at equal measures over the years, since her father, Ninoy, was martyred, throughtout the presidency of her mother, Cory, and the present presidency of her brother, Noynoy.

Perhaps everything has a price to be paid. Despite the popularity and riches she has gained over the years, she is far from having the perfect life, happiness seems to have eluded our Krissy! She just couldn’t get it right with her men despite, if news is to be believed,  having had quite a few. ;0

I supposed from the outset, everyone knew that the affair with a married man which gave her her first son, Josh, would always end in tears.  He was much older and so much more experienced!

Her marriage with James Yap also ended in tears. He was much younger and at the pinnacle of his successful career as a basketball player, adored by the masses.  Their relationship unravelled when girls and women were throwing themselves at him and he had allegedly not learnt to say NO.

The latest of her high profile romances was with Herbert Baustista, a former child actor turned politician. Kris in her inimitable way went overdrive to declare to the world  and to Filipinos worldwide of her new found romance with Herbert Bautista.   Many a pictures were taken of their getting together. The PR for the romance went ten to the dozen.   News that Herbert was liked and accepted by her family, even sharing a photograph of a Aquino family dinner gathering, where Herbert Bautista was sitting in a pride of place at one end of a very long dinner table were posted online.  Everyone who is into Kris Aquino was au fait of the romance.

I was actually happy for Kris with this turn of events, although I was forced to comment that in her Kris Aquino Global facebook timeline that it seemed weird that despite her new love, she seemed to be talking more of James Yap, how happy she was that they made up and might turn friends.

Now that the Herbert affair is over, I can’t help but think that Kris Aquino is not too bothered emotionally but rather feel rather silly in being too overtly “honest”.  I really think that Kris is more in love with love or being in love with the idea of love rather than having real feelings with the supposed object of her affection, perhaps Herbert Bautista had a lucky scape.  After all it takes a real man to be able to measure up with Kris Aquino.

I am sure Kris will get over the misery in a jiffy.  I am pretty sure that the disappointment would have gone long before her new hair-style have grown longer!

Perhaps, Kris is destined for something higher.  Of all the Aquinos, she could possibly make a half decent president.  What do you think?  Comments please.

We have to bear in mind that Kris Aquino is doing very well being the Media Monarch!  It takes a lot of discipline, savvy and drive to reach where she is now!

Rebecca Adlington Buys New Nose

Rebecca-Adlington-3174861Our British sporting heroine, Rebecca Adlington had succumbed to the pressure of celebrity self-image.

Apparently winning a couple of gold and two more bronze for excellent swimming prowess was not enough to elevate Rebecca into a stratospheric euphoria. Instead, her being in the public eye had resulted in her being image-conscious.

Becky Adlington was never ugly, she was attractive but lacking in self-confidence. This has probably had something to do with winning two golds for Team GB which made everyone expect for her to be honoured and made a dame by the Government, the way they did with Dame Kelly Holmes.

I think Kelly Holmes was over-honoured. The Government made a knee-jerk reaction; they used Kelly Holmes’ triumph at the Olympics to deflect people and voters from what was going wrong in the Government.

It was unfortunate for Becky that people started thinking that she would be honoured the same way as Kelly. When she failed to get the same celebration from the Government, Becky might have probably felt let down. Really unfortunate for a young woman’s ego.

I hope Rebecca’s new nose brings here some comfort and more self-confidence.

Becky A

She does look better and seems more confident with her “new” nose.

JUSTIN BEIBER

It is all over the news today about the arrest of Justin Beiber for offenses such  driving his rented yellow Lamborghini at 60mph on a 30mph zone, he was also found to be DUI (driving under the influence) of drug or alcohol, also his driving licence has expired.  He was alleged to have resisted arrest.

This drag racing incident that led to his trouble with the law happened in Miami.

What is going on with Justin?  At 19, he seems to be self-destructing.  During the past year, Justin has been involved in high-profile incidents that are very damaging as teen idol to his countless Bieliebers.  Someone should take this young man under their wing before it is too late.

Britney was also a victim of fame and too much fortune at such a young age.  For a time, she had it all.  Fame and adulation from around the world, enough money to travel the world in several lifetimes, young love with Justin Timberlake, beauty and hits after hits.  Then like a domino effect, everything fell apart until Britney had a nervous breakdown.  She is lucky in some respect that she has a loving family who were there to support  and care for her.

downloadLINDSAY LOHAN

It breaks my heart to think that Lindsay has gone off the rails.  She was one talented actress.  I loved her in Parent Trap.  She was a shining star.  She was also brilliant in Mean Girls.  Great things were happening to Lindsay until she came out as a lesbian.  Suddenly her girl next door image is replaced by over the top jealous , out of control girlfriend of  Samantha Ronson.  She did not take the break-up too well.  She started behaving badly and going in and out of detention centres and rehabs.

MICHAEL JACKSON

Michael, God bless his soul, was a most talented singer who started very young that it robbed him of a childhood.  Michael tried to capture a bit of the wonder of being a child by surrounding himself with animals ( his best friend was Bubbles the monkey) and controversially, children (which was misinterpreted a lot of times)  Michael also became rather fond of plastic surgery which turned his handsome visage into a bit of a caricature.

mileuMILEY CYRUS 

Miley was a real Disney shining star who grew up into the most unprincesslike beauty.  Her snake-like tongue which she delights in sticking out is rather repulsive.  Her flaunting of her body, gorgeous may it be, is just too over the top.

Miley is almost single-handedly pushed the boundary of what is decent and what is porn in the field of pop music.   Surely it is impossible to top Miley overtly sexual twerking, gyrations on stage.   It is a shame that Miley has to resort to being a shocking show-off when she can truly sing, a talented and versatile artist.

Her family should sit her down and tell her that she has done everything, she has let out all the steam that needed letting out, it is time to grow up and show a bit of decency and maturity and put that extra-ordinarily long tongue back inside her mouth.

Shia LaBeouf is shown above wearing a paper bag over his head during a film premiere of his movie Nymphomaniac in Germany.
Shia, a wonderful child actor, has grown into a very competent actor. Unfortunately he remains immature in his personality. If the news are to be believed, Shia apparently is going in a spiral downward behaviour. Just a few weeks ago, it was reported that he made his co-stars furious with his non-bathing antics. Lol. It would be tragic if Shia continuous to behave in this way. He is a fine actor and has plenty more to offer the movie-going public.

 

Allen Jones’ Chair

dashazhukovasplit

Dasha Zhukova on Controversal Chair!

Our post of Allen Jones’ “Chair” was particularly popular yesterday and I was wondering why! It was only late last night, when I was googling, that I got my answer.

Allen Jones’ Chair

Apparently the Allen Jones “Chair” has a cousin. There is a very lifelike “chair” which is an artwork by a Norwegian artist, Bjarne Melgaard.  According to news articles, this chair would probably from now on be called “ the Racist Chair“.

Apparently the racist chair is just one of Melgaard’s many works reinterpreting previous work of other artists.  The white mannequin in Allen Jones’ chair was now of that of a black woman in Melgaard chair.

The real controversy which was trending was a photo of the beautiful  girlfriend of a Russian billionaire  who was sitting nonchalantly on the Racist Chair.  It was really unfortunate that the photo was published on the birth anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Poor Dasha Zhukova, the mother to two of the children & wife of Chelsea Football Club owner, Roman Abramovich, had to apologise for the blunder.

Do you think the chair is racist?  Why is this chair deemed racist and yet Allen Jones’ sculpted chair ‘ wasn’t?!!!

As a woman, I do find both chairs offensive because they are degrading to womanhood. Women are not a piece of furniture!!!

I must say I was surprised that Dasha was quite happy being photographed sitting on the Racist Chair; Dasha may not be racist,  but it looks like she has more money than sense! 🙁

Allen Jones “Chair” 1969

Furniture  using  female mannequins is not new. Demonstrating female subjugation  and  hmm.. 70s sexism, are the scenes in the cult and iconic movie made in 1971, A Clockwork Orange. The movie is based on the dystopian novel  of the same name by award-winning writer Anthony Burgess. Set in the not too distant future, the scenes show a gang (called Droogs) of criminally minded teens lounging in  bar where the furniture is made in the shape of naked women.

Treated Worse Than Filipino Slaves!!!

pa

The two above alleged fraudsters who apparently spent £8000  (P571,854.69 Philippine pesos) a day on designer clothing or £75,000 a month  on luxury living totalling to £685,000 have been giving testimony regarding the case of  fraudulent use of Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi company credit cards.

These two took advantage of Nigella and her ex-husband, Charles Saatchi.

They were unrepentant and have now made racist comments against Filipinos!  Why for goodness’ sakes?  Why bring Filipinos to your alleged fraudulent activities? More racial ignorance like Devina Sharma (Devina DeDiva) we DON’T need!

Now you are not only alleged fraudsters but have shown yourselves as racists.

I don’t know why you picked on the Filipinos, if you know of any Filipinos who are enslaved it is your duty to report it to the proper authority and not use them to exaggerate your condition!

Filipinos are hardworking and very faithful and trustworthy to their employers, especially the kind-hearted ones.

I hope the court will take your blatant racism into consideration.

Nigella PA’s ‘slave’ outburst

Press AssociationPress Association – 4 hours ago

 
Nigella Lawson was married to her husband Charles Saatchi for 10 yearsNigella Lawson was married to her husband Charles Saatchi for 10 years

Two personal assistants to Charles Saatchi and his ex-wife Nigella Lawson complained that they were “being treated worse than Filipino slaves” when they were confronted over their alleged spending sprees on the couple’s credit cards, a court has heard.

Rahul Gajjar, finance director for wealthy art dealer Mr Saatchi, told jurors that Elisabetta Grillo, 41, made the claim after he wrote to her and her sister about their alleged use of the celebrity couple’s credit cards to buy £685,000-worth of luxury goods for themselves.

Mr Gajjar told jurors that at first Elisabetta, referred to in court as Lisa, and co-defendant Francesca, 35, were open and apologetic about their spending spree.

But he said that after he wrote them each a letter outlining how the sisters would pay off their debt which they were expected to sign, they became “agitated”.

“Lisa was against the proposal and I remember a reference to ‘We’re being treated worse than Filipino slaves’,” Mr Gajjar, 44, told jurors at Isleworth Crown Court in west London.

Mr Gajjar said Mr Saatchi and Ms Lawson, who divorced earlier this year, agreed that the sisters should continue working for them when the alleged offences came to light early last year.

He told jurors that he suggested that they continue on their current salaries with Francesca, who is alleged to have spent the largest amount on herself – £580,000 – expected to pay back £1,000 a month, and Elisabetta £250 per month.

They would also be able to live rent-free at a flat owned by Ms Lawson in Battersea, central London, the court heard.

But Mr Gajjar said the defendants reacted angrily to this.

“They were absolutely in disagreement,” he said.

“They felt it tied them to the company for the rest of their lives.”

The court heard a series of text messages exchanged by Mr Gajjar and Francesca, including one where she complained her membership at private club Soho House had been cancelled.

“If they carry on doing stuff like this, I won’t have any choice but to go to court,” she wrote.

In another she said: “If one more small thing happens before we meet, they leave me no choice but going legal.”

The astonishing life of luxury enjoyed by Nigella Lawson’s two personal assistants at the expense of Charles Saatchi’s company credit cards was revealed in court today.

In just one day Francesca Grillo spent more than £8,000 on clothes from Prada and Miu Miu, the jury was told.

In the same month she stayed in top hotels in New York and Palma de Mallorca and spent more than £1,000 on a visit to the Ritz Hotel in Paris.

She also bought luxury goods from Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Chloé and spent £500 on shoes from Nicholas Kirkwood. In that month, June 2012, she spent £64,336 on the company credit card of which £34,168 was on luxuries for herself. In the same month her sister Elisabetta spent £4,850 on shopping sprees.

The sisters, of Bayswater, have pleaded not guilty to fraud using credit cards on Mr Saatchi’s Conarco Partnership account with Coutts Bank between January 2008 and December last year.

Isleworth crown court had heard that the sisters allege the TV cook allowed them to spend so hugely on themselves in exchange for keeping silent about her alleged heavy cocaine use.

Their lawyers say Mr Saatchi believed his then wife was taking drugs on a daily basis throughout their 10-year marriage and had nicknamed her  “Hi-gella”.

Francesca, 34, and Elisabetta Grillo, 41 deny fraud chargesFrancesca, 35, and Elisabetta, 41, were confronted about their spending in July 2012 by the Saatchi company accountant Rahul Gajjar.

He told the court that he had first become suspicious about their spending at the  beginning of 2012 but had decided not to raise it with either Mr Saatchi or Ms Lawson.

“We were dealing with more corporate matters and they normally didn’t have time for what we thought were  trivial matters,” he said.

In the summer of 2012 Mr Gajjar discovered that in the previous month Francesca had spent £48,000 and her sister £28,000 while two other PAs had spent no more than £8,000 each and Ms Lawson had spent only £7,000.

When he confronted the sisters Francesca seemed “concerned, apologetic and offered to reimburse the company and Mr Saatchi”. The court heard that Mr Saatchi and Ms Lawson offered to allow the sisters to work on and pay the money back rather than report the alleged fraud to police. They suggested that Francesca pay £1,000 a month and her sister £250 while staying rent free at Ms Lawson’s flat in Battersea.

But at a meeting with Mr Gajjar in July last year the sisters were furious at what they saw as being tied to the company “for the rest of their lives”. Elisabetta said they were “being treated worse than Filipino slaves”.

The sisters are alleged to have stolen almost £700,000. Francesca was paid £28,000 a year and her sister £25,000.

The case continues.

Lady Gaga Malfunctions!

lady G LadyG2Lady G2

Poor Lady Gaga, she was in a terrible bother after guesting in the Graham Norton Show. Mind you, to start with she was elegance personification but as soon as she tried to get inside the waiting cab, all hell broke loose and in front of the Paparazzi too.

Every aching discomfort was recorded and photographed. Lady Gaga was malfunctioning and not only in the wardrobe department. There were some nipple show too.

Her peacock hair was just too huge and to high to execute an elegant entry into the car.

One thing though, our Lady Gaga was so game, she was not a diva. She did try everything and she did manage to get in the cab in the end although face first onto the leather seat of the cab.

LOL

We salute you Lady Gaga. Your little Monsters are behind you 100 per cent. 😉

Wrong Beauty Queen

Omigod what a shocking embarrassement. How can Denise Garrido live down the shame of being beautiful but not quite enough for Miss Canada.

I think she should be compensated for the humiliation.

And Miss Canada Pageant should be boycotted!

Oops! Miss Universe Canada crowns wrong winner

AFPBy AFP | AFP – 15 hours ago

 
  • Losing is never easy, but for one unlucky contestant in Canada's Miss Universe competition the bad news came 24 hours later -- after she'd been crowned the winner


    AFP/Pool/AFP/File – Losing is never easy, but for one unlucky contestant in Canada’s Miss Universe competition the bad news came 24 hours later — after she’d been crowned the winner

Losing is never easy, but for one unlucky contestant in Canada’s Miss Universe competition the bad news came 24 hours later — after she’d been crowned the winner.

Red-faced organizers admitted on Wednesday that a typo led to a counting error that resulted in Denise Garrido, 26, being wrongly named the victor at Saturday’s event. She was stripped of her sash and crown the next day.

“I was shocked. I’d achieved my dream and suddenly after a day of it sinking in it was suddenly taken away from me,” a heartbroken Garrido told AFP, after losing her chance to represent Canada at the Miss Universe final in December.

In a statement, pageant director Denis Davila blamed an inexperienced employee for the typo when transferring the judges’ handwritten scores into a computer program that determines the winner.

An independent audit later spotted the error.

It turned out that Garrido had actually finished third runner-up to Riza Santos, also 26, of Calgary, who will now collect her crown in that city on Saturday, according to a pageant spokesman.

This is the second consecutive year in which controversy has enveloped the pageant. In 2012, transgender model Jenna Talackova waged a battle to enter the competition. She went on to win a prize for congeniality.

Looking for a “silver lining” in the debacle, Garrido said she will always relish having been crowned “even if it lasted for only 24 hours.”

Brad Pitt Shut Up

Brad Pitt has no shame at all. He is so self-serving. His brutality towards Aniston is unbelievable. Why would he open his gob about his drug taking and drifting while he was married to Jen Aniston? Did he not realise how much he hurt her already? Why continue to humiliate her?

I am sure Angelina is a goddess in every possible way and that he needed to pay homage to her but surely not by sacrificing the very being of Jennifer Aniston.

I think Brad Pitt needs to read on how a woman feels when she finds out her man has been doing the dirty on her. It turns her world upside down, Brad.

Jennifer Aniston has just now started to have the life she has always wanted and yet you want to bring back and open up old wounds.

Don’t you want Jen to have a life of her own?

Are you one of those men who crave constant worshipping? You want both Angelina and Jennifer panting at your feet?

Probably you are suffering from the curse of the middle-life. LOL

Accept it gracefully Brad, old age comes to all of us!

………..
OMG, I think I remember a picture of Brad Pitt with Jennifer Aniston when he was “drifting”! He did have a look of being rather hirsute and in need of a good scrubbing. It was also said that he smelt bad!

Woah so Angelina made him shower everyday! Go girl!

Brad Pitt reveals he was doing ‘too many drugs’ and was a ‘drifter’ while married to Jennifer Aniston

By  | the juice – Wed, May 22, 2013 06:30 BST

Brad Pitt has revealed that during his marriage to Jennifer Aniston he was ‘a drifter’ and ‘taking too many drugs’.

Brad Pitt has revealed that he was taking too many drugs while married to Jennifer Aniston. Copyright [Wenn]We doubt she’s going to be happy to hear this.

The 49-year-old actor made the revelations in an interview with Esquire US magazine where he candidly spoke about his life before settling down with his fiancée Angelina Jolie.

He told the magazine: ‘For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter.

“A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f***ing off.

“But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change.

“This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany.”

Brad and Jennifer, who wed in 2000, had a very public marriage breakdown in 2005. Brad had of course met Angelina Jolie on the set of ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ in 2004.

Angelina Jolie reportedly made Brad Pitt see his full potential . Copyright [Wenn]The magazine also spoke to Jean Black, Brad’s make-up artist since 1990, who revealed that when the actor met Angelina, his outlook on life changed.

He said: “I think Brad was ready to soar when he met Angie.

“This is not to say anything negative about Jennifer. I was part of that and I know that he and Jen are very good friends and he cared deeply for her.

“But in Angie he saw a very adventurous person who was grabbing onto life and taking it to its nth degree. It was intriguing as I felt Brad had that in him and wanted to unleash it.”

Brad and Angelina are rumoured to wed very soon following the actress’ revelation earlier this month that she underwent a preventative  double mastectomy after she found out she had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer.

Reese Witherspoon charged with disorderly conduct

reese w
OMG, What is the world coming to? Our very own Reese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct. Our fragrant Reese, who can trace her ancestors from the Mayflower was baiting a real policeman.

I really cannot get my head round it. Reese is the epitome of good manners and right conduct. She doesn’t do scandal. She does not do chavvy things. She is humble and always cheerful.

Strange…. but apparently true!

The mugshot?

The mugshot?

ATLANTA – Actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after a Georgia state trooper said she wouldn’t stay in the car while her husband was given a field sobriety test.

“Do you know my name?” Witherspoon is quoted as asking the trooper. She also said, “You’re about to find out who I am” and “You’re about to be on national news,” according to the arrest report.

The trooper had noticed the car driven by her husband wasn’t staying in its lane early Friday morning, so a traffic stop was initiated. Her husband, James Toth, had droopy eyelids and watery, bloodshot eyes, and his breath smelled strongly of alcohol, according to the report.

Toth told the trooper he’d had a drink, which Witherspoon said was consumed at a restaurant two hours before the traffic stop, the report says.

Before the field sobriety test began, Witherspoon got out of the car and was told to get back in and obeyed, the report said. After she got out a second time, the trooper said he warned her that she would be arrested if she left the car again.

As the test continued, “Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer. I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet,” Trooper First Class J. Pyland wrote.

Toth was then placed under arrest. He was charged with driving under the influence and failure to maintain the lane.

At that point, the report says, Witherspoon got out and asked the trooper what was going on. After being told to return to the car, she “stated that she was a ‘US Citizen’ and that she was allowed to ‘stand on American ground,’” the report states.

The trooper then began to arrest Witherspoon. The report says Witherspoon was resistant at first but was calmed down by her husband.

Toth and Witherspoon were then taken to jail.

A message left at the office of Witherspoon’s publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, wasn’t immediately returned Sunday.
