Chief Justice Renato Corona’s impeachment trial, The Manny & Jinkee Show + more lowlights
Plus, Mike Arroyo goes to the Ombudsman, "Poison Ivy" is nabbed, and more crazy tales.
1. CHARICE PEMPENGCO’S MOM RAQUEL MAKES LIKE A DEBUTANTE-18 ROSES AND ALL-ON HER 40TH BIRTHDAY. As long as you don’t go to the plastic surgeon to have your face tightened to the point where we can bounce coins off it, you can go right ahead and pretend you’re still 18.
2. GASOLINE TANKER HITS FOUR CABS ON COMMONWEALTH AVENUE A.K.A. "THE KILLER HIGHWAY." New rule: If it’s not No. 1 on the list of the world’s deadliest highways, then it ain’t that bad.
3. FORMER FIRST GENTLEMAN MIKE ARROYO PERSONALLY SUBMITS TO THE OFFICE OF THE OMBUDSMAN HIS COUNTERAFFIDAVIT ON THE PNP CHOPPER SCAM CASE. Because "counteraffidavit" is such a boring name, here’s our proposed title: "It’s Just One of My Hobbies, People!"
4. FORMER MAID ANAMAE LIVRANDO (DUBBED "POISON IVY" FOR POISONING HER EMPLOYERS BEFORE ROBBING THEM) BACK IN POLICE CUSTODY AFTER ESCAPING FROM A CORRECTIONAL FACILITY. Imagine what she could do if she were President.
5. ANOTHER SHABU LABORATORY RAID MAKES IT TO THE NEWS. When they said "It’s more fun in the Philippines," they certainly didn’t mean you can go right ahead and set up a methamphetamine lab.
6. RAYMART SANTIAGO AND CLAUDINE BARRETTO SHOW THEIR MARRIAGE IS NOW OK, SWEET GESTURES ARE CAUGHT ON CAMERA. Nice show...but what happened here?
7. MANNY AND JINKEE PACQUIAO SHOW THEIR MARRIAGE IS STRONGER THAN EVER, SWEET GESTURES CAUGHT ON CAM. Haven’t we seen this show before?
8. MIKEY AND ANGELA ARROYO SHOW THEIR MARRIAGE IS STRONGER THAN EVER, CAUGHT ON CAM PRESENTING A UNITED FRONT AS THEY DEAL WITH TAX EVASION CHARGES. This show seems so familiar.
9. CHIEF JUSTICE RENATO CORONA’S IMPEACHMENT TRIAL RAGES ON. Our verdict: It’s not as entertaining as Erap’s impeachment trial.
10. GARBAGE COLLECTORS IN CEBU FIND EXPENSIVE JEWELRY IN A DUMPSITE. Garbage collection-definitely more fun in the Philippines.
