KYLIE Padilla is reported to be readying herself for her showbiz comeback. She lied low after giving birth to two sons. She has no one else to blame but herself for prioritizing her lovelife over her career. She was only 15 years old in 2008 when GMA-7 gave her an acting break in “Joaquin Bordado”, which starred her own dad Robin.
After that, she was launched to stardom and GMA gave her good solo projects like “The Good Daughter”, “Unforgettable”, “Adarna”, “More than Words”, “Buena Familia”. She was given the plum role of Amihan in the reboot of “Encantadia” but Aljur got her pregnant in late 2016. So she had to resign from the show and gave birth to their first son Alas in August of 2017.
They officially got married in December of 2018, but now it’s all over. At 28, she’s officially a single mom. Someone says she should have learned her lesson when she first broke up with Aljur.
“They went steady for three years, from 2011 to 2014.” says our source. “Nabuking niya, may kulukudidang ‘yung jowa niya so nakipag-break siya pero in 2016, niligawan siya uli and by September that year, nagkabalikan sila. A few months later, najontis na siya at nasira ang career niya. Well, finally ayan, nauntog na siya.”
As usual, there are speculations as to who is the third party of Aljur. One of the suspected chicks is Cindy Miranda, who is his leading lady in Vivamax’ “Nerisa”. It’s said they got super close while shooting the film on location in Alabat Island. But Cindy quickly dismissed this.
Other suspected culprits are Maika Rivera and Erin Ocampo (both certified Da Whos?). The truth is we have never heard of them before this. Someone told us they’re both aspiring starlets in ABS-CBN who Aljur got to work in some shows and they’re now being linked to him. (Erin is with GMAAC now.–Ed.)
Well, Maika and Erin (who’s an unwed mom with a son sired by a singer who lost his luster when he left his manager) should be thankful that, suddenly, they are now being talked about out of nowhere. Bigla silang napag-usapan. Cindy should also thank Aljur as no doubt their being linked together is helping the promotion of their movie that will start streaming soon on Vivamax.
AJ wants viewers to go beyond her sexy scenes
AJ Raval has already played a lead role in “Death of a Girlfriend”. How come she agreed to play a supporting role to Cindy Miranda who plays the title role in Vivamax’ new sexy offering, “Nerisa”.
“Ay okay lang naman po sa akin na hindi ako laging bida,” she says at the zoom presscon of “Nerisa”. “At saka very important po ‘yung role sa ‘Nerisa’ as Lilet, kasi ako po ‘yung narrator ng story as I know what really happened to Cindy as Nerisa.”
Why? What happened to Nerisa? “Napulot siya sa laot ni Aljur Abrenica kaya napadpad siya sa isla namin. Ako lang ang naging kaibigan niya kasi ‘yung ibang islanders consider her na may dalang kamalasan sa buhay nila. ‘Yung mga babae, malaki ang selos sa kanya kasi pinagnanasaan siya ng mga mister nila kaya gusto siyang pagtulungan. Ako ang tutulong sa kanya para siya makatakas siya sa isla.”
She is paired with the hunky newbie Sean de Guzman in the movie and they have their own sexy scenes.
“Yes, but you have to go beyond the sexy scenes in the movie and watch ‘yung buong story to fully appreciate it. Hindi naman po ito puro hubaran at love scenes lang kasi maganda po talaga ang story at kapupulutan din ng magandang aral.”
After this, she and Sean will have their own solo movie entitled “Taya”, which is also sexy. We thought her dad, Jeric Raval, is against her going sexy and has asked her to stop doing bold flicks?
“Okay na po sa kanya kasi I explained na siya naman ang inspirasyon ko sa pagpasok ko sa showbiz at sa pag-aartista ko. Tapos, nagtiwala sa akin ang Viva, giving me good projects and opportunities na alangan namang basta balewalain ko. Isa pa, nakita naman niyang maganda ang reception sa akin ng viewers kaya siguro umokey na rin sa kanya. Also, nasa tamang edad na rin naman ako and I can make my own decisions at naiintindihan niya ‘yun.”
Pinoy vinyl albums make strong comeback
VINYL albums vanished for a while but they have made a strong comeback. In the U.S., millions vinyl albums are now being sold and, in the PHilippines, vinyl record collectors and OPM fans prove that there is still a big market for it. After Vicor Music hit it big with unforgettable albums released in vinyl from its storied catalog, they’ve now issued a new set of titles that OFM fans and audiophiles will surely adore and want to own.
New vinyl reproductions of classics such as Pinoy rock’s Mike Hanopol, Resty Fabunan’s Maria Cafra, Yoyoy Villame’s comedy album and Gary Valenciano’s early hits were recently released and is now available on independent record stores and audio specialty shops across the metro.
Mike Hanopol’s “Awiting Pilipino” is the successful solo debut from the Pinoy rock singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. This vinyl record includes Hanopol’s Pinoy rock hit “Laki Sa Layaw,” a song that established Hanopol as a solo artist after his stint with the seminal rock group Juan Dela Cruz Band.
Meanwhile, the “Maria Cafra” self-titled record was the vehicle for Resty Fabunan’s rock musings. This album includes the rock hit “Kumusta Mga Kaibigan” and is a veritable rock classic all throughout.
Gary Valenciano began his streak of hit songs with the Vicor-produced “Gary Valenciano Next” album. This collection includes two of his biggest hits: the Danny Javier-written “’Di Na Natuto” and “Reaching Out.” The latter is a theme song from the 1983 Viva Films hit movie “Hotshots” that also launched Gary V’s acting career.
No doubt that Yoyoy Villame was a comedic genius and the proof is in this lengthy 14-track “Best of Yoyoy Villame” record that has Manong Yoyoy’s finest moments immortalized on vinyl: “Granada,” “Si Felimon,” “Butsekik” and “Mag Exercise Tayo” to name a few.
Previous releases that include the once hard-to-find “Segreto” album by the late Ric Segreto, “VST & Company I,” Rico J. Puno’s “The Way We Were,” Rey Valera, Martin Nievera, Freddie Aguilar’s “Anak” and Sharon Cuneta’s “Mr DJ” albums have since become a big hit in the vinyl-collecting community. “Segreto” in particular sold out its stocks twice.
Vicor has since followed up with titles such as “Batucada Sa Calesa” by Bong Penera, Basil Valdez’s “Ngayon At Kailanman,” “Kuh” by Kuh Ledesma, “Himig Natin” by Juan Dela Cruz Band and Asin. All titles are manufactured abroad on 180-gram vinyl.
More are forthcoming: the second Ric Segreto album “Man Of The Hour” will surely be a welcome addition for collectors as it completes the re-issue of the late singer’s whole discography. Other titles by Side A, Sampaguita, Cinderella, Hotdog and more are all slated to be made available soon.
Collectors usually fork over exorbitant amounts for rare OPM albums. But the Vicor classic vinyl reissue series will make once hard to find, quality sound recordings of all-time favorite OPM artists easier to own. Priced at P1,900 per title, these records are perfect for audiophiles and for the budding vinyl collectors looking out for quality classic albums.
