Manong Johnny’s cash division, Sarah Lahbati’s rants + more lowlights
Plus, Justin Bieber fans get bloody, P-Noy nixes total gun ban, and other nutty tales.
1. USING MONEY FROM THE SENATE’S SAVINGS, SENATOR JUAN PONCE ENRILE REPORTEDLY GIVES P1.6 MILLION TO 18 SENATORS AND P250,000 TO THE REST (AMONG THEM HIS NOT-SO-CLOSE COLLEAGUES LIKE SEN. ANTONIO TRILLANES IV). They say second childhood is so much fun when you have so much money at your disposal.
2. SENATOR MIRIAM DEFENSOR SANTIAGO SAYS ENRILE’S "CASH DIVISION" MUST BE QUESTIONED. Is this Battle Royale or just another one of those verbal sparring sessions? (Place your bets now!)
3. SARAH LAHBATI HAS A BEEF AGAINST GMA ARTIST CENTER. It seems she’s no longer starstruck.
4. ANNABELLE RAMA, WHOM LAHBATI HAD ALSO TAPPED TO FUNCTION AS CO-MANAGER OF HER CAREER, SAYS SHE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BROUHAHA. A wise move for a change.
5. AFTER A VIDEO OF JUSTIN BIEBER ALLEGEDLY SMOKING POT IS MADE PUBLIC, SOME OF HIS FANS CUT THEMSELVES TO SHOW THEIR DISAPPOINTMENT. Does he care about them as much as they care about him? (Mag-One Direction na lang kayo!)
6. P-NOY DOESN’T SEEM KEEN ON BACKING THE CALLS FOR TOTAL GUN BAN. Well, what did you people expect?
7. BB GANDANGHARI CONFUSES A MALE BUREAU OF IMMIGRATION OFFICER AT NAIA, WHO COULDN’T GET OVER THE FACT THAT BB IS STILL IDENTIFIED AS "MALE" IN HIS PASSPORT. BB seemed flattered by the confusion and that’s all that matters.
8. A LOT OF SO-CALLED EXPERTS ARE INSISTING THAT MANNY PACQUIAO WILL BE STRUCK DOWN BY PARKINSON’S DISEASE. Shame on you all for kicking a guy while he’s down.
9. DENNIS TRILLO SAYS HE’LL CONCENTRATE ON HIS CAREER AND HIS FAMILY IN 2013. That’s what they all say.
10. PRESENTED AS SHOWBIZ NEWS: BEA BINENE AND ALDEN RICHARDS HAVE A KISSING SCENE IN THE UPCOMING PRIMETIME SERIES INDIO. In the age of sex video scandals, this is still news?
