Here's a little tip: When you're interviewing a celebrity, make sure you get their name right. The presenters of Good Morning Sacramento didn't and ended up calling Cara Delevingne "Carla."

After fashion designer Renee Salud reportedly said Binibining Pilipinas contestant Winwyn Marquez was "not beauty queen material," the latter told reporters that she respected what the fashion designer said but added, "Kung gusto kong sumali [sa beauty pageant], sasali ako."
Incidentally, Salud discovered Melanie Marquez (Winwyn's aunt) who later won Miss International in 1979. Winwyn admitted that she was hurt by his remarks and said, "Pero you just have to handle it well, you just have to respect people's opinion." Now that's a queenly answer.
Reports say that Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano are set to do another romance film, this time alongside Gerald Anderson. Enrique plays Ethan, who falls in love with a barrio lass named Audrey (Liza), who is in a relationship with Tristan (Gerald). The film, entitled Everyday I Love You, still has no release date.
It's official! After rumors surfaced that Chris Pine would play Wonder Woman's love interest, reports now say that he has signed on for the role of Steve Trevor. In the comics, Steve is an intelligence officer from the army who crashes into an island and is nursed back to health by Diana Prince (Wonder Woman's alter ego). The actual plot of the stand-alone film starring Gal Gadot is still under wraps.
Google has unveiled a new search feature that allows you to see when an establishment is most likely to be busy.

Google says it has enabled the feature for millions of places and businesses around the world.
The inspiration behind Hermès' luxury Birkin bag, British singer and style icon Jane Birkin, is protesting the alleged practices used to created one of the label’s most famous (and expensive) creations, the crocodile Birkin. After PETA reportedly uncovered brutal crocodile slaughter done by the company, Birkin released a statement, saying, "I have asked Hermès to [debaptize] the Birkin Croco until better practices in line with international norms can be put in place."
Meanwhile, the label said that they have launched an investigation into the Texas farm, saying, "...Hermès specifies that this farm does not belong to them and that the crocodile skins supplied are not used for the fabrication of Birkin bags."
According to Palace spokesperson Edwin Lacierda, President Aquino is determined to pass the Freedom of Information bill within his term. P-Noy supposedly promised the FOI's passage in an open forum last year, "no ifs, no buts."
The Manila Electric Company (Meralco) announced a possible increase in electricity rates in August, partly due to supply restrictions.
