Korina’s comeback, Pacman’s performance, Mislang’s mishap + more lowlights
Korina’s "in the news" again, Pacman sings heartily, Mai Mislang’s not-sweet tweet, and more.
1. ASKED ABOUT THE P-NOY-LIZ UY RUMOR, KRIS AQUINO ONLY SAYS WE’LL ALL BENEFIT IF THE PRESIDENT HAS A GREAT LOVE LIFE. The way things are going--it looks like his love life sucks.
2. P-NOY SPEECHWRITER CARMEN "MAI" MISLANG’S DISTASTEFUL TWEETS ABOUT VIETNAM EARN THE IRE OF THE PUBLIC. By the time it was our turn to take a shot at her--there was nothing left to say.
3. METRO MANILA AFTER AUSTRALIA, UK, AND US ISSUE TRAVEL ADVISORY ABOUT "IMMINENT TERRORIST ATTACKS." And we thought it would be a Grinch who’d steal Christmas.
4. HOT PRIMETIME ABS-CBN TELENOVELA MAGKARIBAL ENDS ITS RUN. We loved it despite the fact that a lead character’s forehead hardly ever moved.
5. AFTER BEING RUMORED PREGNANT SO MANY TIMES, POP DIVA MARIAH CAREY IS FINALLY HAVING A BABY FOR REAL. If you count all the other times, this would be her nth child. (It’s actually her first.)
6. PRISON INMATES PARTICIPATE IN A SWIMSUIT COMPETITION IN LAOAG CITY, ILOCOS NORTE. Great...what’s next?
7. BOXING CHAMP-TURNED-CONGRESSMAN MANNY PACQUIAO SINGS JOHN LENNON’S "IMAGINE" WITH WILL FERRELL ON JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE. There’s only one thing wrong with this picture: Pacman’s a congressman. (Otherwise, he’s cool.)
8. ABS-CBN ANNOUNCES THAT KORINA SANCHEZ (ALONG WITH NOLI DE CASTRO) WILL RETURN TO TV PATROL ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 8. She’s baaaaaaaaaack!
9. DESPITE TV HOST PIA GUANIO’S USE OF THE MORE APT WORD ("NA-I-INTIMIDATE") IN THE CLIP, VIDEO HEADING READS, "SUITORS AFRAID OF MA. VENUS RAJ?" Why are they afraid of her? Does she transform into something else when the moon is full? (Lost in translation = LOL.)
10. PACMAN DENIES REPORTS THAT HE’S SLACKING OFF IN HIS TRAINING. Just because he takes time out to sing, it doesn’t mean that he’s getting soft.
