GMA Kapuso Foundation and ABS-CBN’s Sagip-Kapamilya and ABS-CBN Foundation both conducted a telethon to raise funds for the victims of the typhoon ‘Ondoy’. A lot of celebs volunteered to join the telethon
Some who attended the telethon of GMA were Lucy Torres-Gomez, Iza Calzado, Rhian Ramos, Isabel Oli, Michelle Madrigal, Mark Herras, Arnell Ignacio, Butch Francisco, Benjie Paras, Ynna Asistio and other starlets including Vivo Juano amd Princess. Kris Aquino who also pledged P50,000 to Kapuso Foudation led the telethon for ABS-CBN Foundation. Willie Revillame even added another million for the first 26 million they already raised as donations.
Both GMA Kauso Foundation and ABS-CBN Foundation are gaining positive response from millions of Filipinos around the nation. There are a lot of pledges in cash or in kind from our fellows. The telethon also accepts ‘pananawagan’ and calls for help and emergency.
Willie Revillame is just a very blessed man that this morning, he happens to host a groundbreaking ceremony of one of his lifelong dream, the Wil Theater Mall. This studio-mall complex is worth P600 Million or even more and will be rising at the Eugenio Lopez Drive, across the audience entrance of ABS-CBN Network.
ABS-CBN President Charo Santos-Concio, Television Head Cory Vidanes, Star Magic head Johnny Manahan and Wowowee director Edgar Mortiz participated in the groundbreaking ceremony along with his co-hosts Mariel Rodriguez, Valerie Concepcion, Pokwang and RR Enriquez.
Wowowee host envisions his 10-storey building to have a spa, a gym, shops, theater and a studio that will be built on this 2,920 sq. meter property. Willie shares that his show Wowowee would transfer to the theater mall when it’s done and Star Cinema’s Premiere Showings can be held there, too. It’ll have its own waiting area, comfortably designed for studio attenders and TFC subscribers. He also wants it to have a bridgeway that would lead directly to ABS-CBN studios.
It’s an all-in-one kind of building. One thing that Willie recreates from what he read about and watched from successful people like Oprah Winfrey’s having her own studio, Henry Sy’s SM Super Malls, ABS-CBN’s Eugenio Lopez and even John Gokongwei.
Willie’s not a just comedian nor Wowowee’s noontime show host but definitely a visionary, who is able to overcome obstacles and keep his focus of making what he sets his mind on to become a reality. He actually thank God for all this things and the support of the Filipino people. Willie himself is an inspiration for all of us.
(Note on the last photo… just wondering if they dugged the wrong spot. 😉 )
ABS-CBN’s May Bukas Pa is undoubtedly number one on its Primetime Bida time slot. Besides the lessons you’ve been getting, Kapamilya network never forgets to grace this divinely inspired teleserye with equally divine beauty and personalities. That’s why KC Concepcion’s going to have a special appearance to take it further to the heavenlies.
Though, KC’s wearing a red hot dress. Of course she’s pretty and sexy in red and we’re wondering what’s with the red and her role in May Bukas Pa. It seems like we’re pretty mesmerized with her looks and her portrayal of any kind would seem negligible.
So much of day dreaming guys, the great thing about it is that KC’s still not choosing between Richard Guttierez and Piolo Pascual. Lovers In Paris is yet to hit your TV screens, too. As of the moment, watch out for KC on May Bukas Pa. 😉
Jericho Rosales undeniably loves music that his now one of the newest artist of Star Records. He actually just signed a recording contract a day before at 9501 Restaurant in ABS-CBN together with his manager, Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano and Star Records head Anabelle Regalado-Borja.
Echo is an EMI artist before and who knows what then that he’ll leave acting for that mean time. As a grown up he learned his lessons and get himself right now together with what he loves and with what he’s been loved seeing to do at best!
Great stuff there Echo! 😉
Wowowee host, Willie Revillame is named No. 1 Most Powerful Celerity for the past 14 months by Yes! Magazine. They actually featured 50 showbiz personalities but Willie emerged to be the top guy.
He’s an influential person, indemand and a best-selling figure to Yes! Magazine having their last cover for Willie in their issue sold out more than 250,000 copies and they’re still reprinting. You can recall that a few weeks ago Willie is also featured and interviewed back with Showbiz News Ngayon. He had an undeniable worth of a fortune yacht, real estate properties and cars. He is said to remain as a flagship celebrity host of ABS-CBN Kapamilya and earning a million a day.
When interviewed through SNN, he expressed gratitude and somehow flattered that a category as ‘Most Powerful’ ever existed. He clarified that his only power if there would be any is about his ability to make people happy. And about the million a day, he doesn’t think so ABS-CBN would actually pay him that much for being a host.
Maybe not just ABS-CBN but the endorsements he’s getting. You can imagine Willie ‘clipping his lips‘ to all these and wanting to put his feet still on the ground but in terms of cash, he is much liquid. Not to mention he’s recently rumored to have a 9-digit figure offer to campaign for 2010 presidential bet Manny Villar. Of course, it remains a rumor until proven otherwise. 😉
