The month of June is a good time to review what transpired for the first six months of 2007. For this edition, Conventional Wisdom is focusing on showbiz-related matters instead of the usual politics (which in a way is also show-biz but ……for ugly people). Read on.
Kris Aquino. Loser. While she is the innocent one in the whole James-Hope brouhaha, Conventional Wisdom thinks that she could have handled the incident with more dignity and privacy. One wonders why this drama queen wants to inflict her day-to-day saga with the whole planet. From exaggerating her “life-threatening” pregnancy, to lambasting her
husband in public (“O magsalita ka? Totoo namang pina-palayas na kita sa bahay a?”), to actually using Ninoy to promote a cake in her latest commercial. Kris’ next endorsement should neither be beer nor pastries but laundry detergent for her unquenchable desire to always wash her very dirty underwear in public.
James Yap. Loser. One word : cad. As one writer succinctly said : “What do you expect from a provincial boy who suddenly became famous and wealthy?” The last time we witnessed a showbiz cad was during Gabby Concepcion’s time. James is now second in our list. Conventional Wisdom is giving them maximum of 3 years as a couple. Kris is starting to look more and more mature and matronic. James is still young. Give James sometime, and after Hope – – Faith and Charity will spring forth.
Moral of the story. Smoking is bad for marriage: Kris had Philip, James had Hope. Conventional Wisdom can’t take any More of this!!!
Ruffa Gutierrez / Annabelle Rama : The mother and daughter (MAD) team strikes again. From a filmfest scam that made it to CNN, to Brunei-yuki scandal that merited a senate hearing, and now, the falling out with Yilmaz – – which is desperately being peddled out as Philippines vs. Turkey. Oppressor vs.Victim.
Ruffa Gutierrez: Loser. A desperate act from a has-been, middle-aged B-actress who is trying to make a come-back by capitalizing on whatever publicity that can be squeezed out from this split. From caterwauling one minute “Hindi ko na kaya Kuya Boy!”, to coyly saying the following week “Ligawan nya (Yilmaz) ulit ako” to having her born again baptism rites captured on cam and then heading off to Las Vegas the following week to relax and do
damage control (about her marriage five years ago in Las Vegas). Ruffa, you’re act is getting stale. You have become so predictable and boring.
Annabelle Rama. Winner. For always a character that she is. For being consistent in her act and for being our constant source of amusement. Conventional Wisdom almost fell
off its chair when this motor-mouth fish-wife asked Dolly Ann to return the cosmetics she gave her and then, proceeded on by actually naming two unknown women on national
television to pay their debts to her since she now has to take care of Ruffa and her grandchildren : “Hoy, so and so…magbayad na kayo ng utang nyo sa akin dahil marami na akong papalamunin ngayon” or something to that effect. Panalo talaga si Bisaya. I strongly suggest to PGMA that we give this woman a position in the government preferably as Head of our National Defense. Asap.
Dolly Ann Carvajal. Winner and Loser. A lot of people don’t like this woman. For one, she is not pleasing to the eye. Her gay son looks a lot better than she. And admit it or not, she became a writer thru her connections – mom and aunt. But being objective about the whole thing, Conventional Wisdom thinks that Dolly Ann is on the right this time. Why can’t the mother and daughter (MAD) tandem just answer the questions posed by Dolly Ann? Why can’t Annabelle stick to the issues instead of pointing out something we already know : how ugly Dolly Ann is.
What makes Dolly Ann a loser is her constant use of her departed mom’s legacy and memory whenever someone would diss her out. Honey, stop hiding under the skirt of your mom. You are not a sacred cow.
Pia Guanio. Loser. What a lousy lousy interviewer. The depth of her talent as a host is as long as her irritating mini skirts. Do us a favor Pia, ask Bossing to marry you already and then fade into oblivion.
Gretchen Baretto. Loser. One word : Wow. The affectations of La Greta can only matched by her delusions of grandeur. From the looks of it, she is experiencing the early on-set of a mid-life crisis. She has been picking fights left and right…with Lani Mercado, and then with Dawn Zulueta.
From her classic statement about the looks of her own daughter : “Naaawa nga ako dahil karamihan ng tao ang sabi kay Dominique, kamukha sya ng tatay nya?”. And now the “friendly beso-beso” lip-lock with John Estrada. Please explain to Conventional Wisdom – – “How can this be a friendly kiss when you and John looked so orgasmic in that shot?
Gretchen is a classic example of “langaw na nakatungtong sa kalabaw, pero feeling mataas pa sa kalabaw.” Someone should already tell this woman to seek professional help. Sober up and clean your act sister. You are no Paris Hilton. More like Plaster of Paris Hilton.
Cesar Montano, Richard Gomez, Manny Pacquiao, etc. – Losers. No further explanations needed.
Borgy Manotoc. Loser. Please. Please. From one scandal to the next. From one basag-ulo to the next. We have enough of you and your sap-sap mouth face. Will someone already put this psycho behind bars?
Butch Francisco and Dolly Ann as writers. Losers. Please don’t waste precious newspaper space writing about personal stories that nobody (repeat, nobody!) finds interesting at all. From your maid’s antics to your experience as a judge of Slimmers World Mr. and Ms. Ek ek, to a current love who inspires you. Please! A tree gave up its life to have these newspaper printed. Have I mentioned that nobody is interested?
Belo’s Billboards. Loser. Hideous. Plain hideous. Whoever is advising Vicky (I can’t call
her Doctora Vicky because as Osang said, she was a mere aerobics instructor before) to put out all those monstrosities should be charged with Human Rights violations. From the disturbing Chrismas billboard last December, to Richard Gomez’s billboard pre-campaign period, to Ai-ai’s scary shot. Conventional Wisdom would rather stare at the billboards of Ellen’s Beauty Salon (with Ellen as the model herself) than see these Belo ads.
Nora Aunor. Loser. To be a has-been superstar drug dependent in your fifties is bad enough. To be caught doing drugs in another country is worse. To be found-out to have married another woman many years ago for a US green-card is worst. Ate Guy is a classic example of a person blessed with so much talent and opportunity gone to waste.
Regine Velasquez – Ogie Alcasid. Losers. Regine is what ….. .nearing 40? As someone said “from her demeanor to her utterance, Regine is trying very very very hard to hold on to youth.” And if I may add, failing miserably. This home-wrecker who speaks with an American sleng-sleng should act her age. Seeing her kilig-reaction about the admission of Ogie made me lose my appetite for dinner. Conventional Wisdom is really worried that
anytime soon, Regine’s face and body will collapse. From her hair extension, her fake long eyelashes, her fake nose, her man-made eye slits, her tooth-caps with gums, and her Gluthathioned skin, her fake boobs. Last we heard, her movie with Piolo flopped big time. Nobody wants to see a May–December love story anymore. Or more correctly, a
May 1960 – December 2007 love affair story anymore.
These are the people that are giving Conventional Wisdom constant migraine the past months. If this trend continues until December, aneurysm can’t be far behind.
Pass this on until it reaches the following: Yilmaz Bektas, Mother-in-law of Gretchen., Hope, Vic Sotto, PGMA, Michelle Van Something, Letty Magsanoc, and Gov. Vi.
