Entry: The Week in Showbiz December 3, 2007



< showbiz >

   It's a good thing Mariel Rodriguez was sent home after a long-overdue stay in "Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2."  I thought this was going to be the end of watching "Wowowee" with Pokwang being forced down my throat, but nope: it seems that she's there to stay.

   I have nothing against Pokwang personally, but as a viewer, I won't put up with more of her hosting style that reminds me ever so much of late-night comedy bars: she reminds me of a female version of Joey de Leon.  True: while "Wowowee" demands a palengkera attitude (even that gravitas infected Nikki Gil and Shaina Magdayao for a while), it's something that Pokwang takes to the figurative extreme.  I don't know if "epal" captures Pokwang, as derogatory as it is, but I kind of feel that way.  "Star complex," maybe, but lest I forget, Pokwang is a star.

   Perhaps showbiz intravenous lines are few and far-between, but I need not look far: on GMA-7, they have John Lapus.  Lesser of two evils?  Nah: comedy-bar comedy has become bigger than the TV show.  Give them their own network.

   F4 alumnus Ken Zhu is in the Philippines to promote his latest movie with Iza Calzado, entitled "Batanes."  Now I'm not the biggest fan of Taiwanese pop, but I have the feeling that Ken Zhu really let himself go.  He's a bit... well, round.  I don't know if TV does injustice to your proportions, but the same cannot be said for Marian Rivera (hubba hubba hubba) and Katrina Halili.  I can't help but make a sick joke at the back of my head that compares Dao Ming Si to a kargador, but that's the first impression I have right now.

   "Maging Sino Ka Man: Ang Pagbabalik" is high on my priorities right now (if only for seeing Angelica Panganiban water plants in a bikini), but I have the feeling that it oozes a bit too much star power.

It is so complex and unexciting to flap the book for hours, but with the help of computer, it is trouble-free to do a research.
