November 26 to 30, 2007:
The World of Ambograw
Article posted November 23, 2007

In the premiere week of Kamandag, the world of the Ambograw was introduced.Populated by five equally powerful tribes, Ambograw hides many secrets and traditions that could prove fatal to every tribe in the underworld. But none was as great as the secret that the late Haring
Saban’s son was alive and well in the world of mortals. And while Alicia continued to pine for her missing son, Haring Gulog made sure that his wife will never find her first son again.
And in the world of the mortals, the Ambograw secret was almost revealed. With the playful Ikoy and the stubborn snake protecting Vergel, the humans were slowly gaining knowledge about the half-humans from the underworld. But in the land of men, there were secrets that needed to be kept as well. Secrets that could cause harm to other people: slithering secrets that kill men in the middle of the night with the prodding of an evil father, harmless secrets that could turn deadly on nights of the full moon, and secrets that needed to be revealed for the good of all.
Maxene’s sweet “yes”
Article posted November 28, 2007

Maxene Magalona reveals the meaty TV offers she turned down before finally saying “yes” to “Kamandag.” What stopped her? How does she feel about letting the opportunities pass? What did she miss so much that she had to come back? She tells iGMA the real deal. Text by Jillian Q. Gatcheco.

Farewell to KiliTV

Maxene recalls that she cried when she found out that DaddyDiDoDu was ending. She had grown to love everything about that show, especially since she’d been there for six years. “And yung pagsabi pa nila sa amin, syempre, they didn’t want to hurt us or anything, so they told us abruptly. Siguro, they told us [in] June, [then in] July, tapos na. Kami, sobrang sad, kasi kahit papaano naging family ko na rin yun.” She had around two months of guest stints in various shows when she was offered a role in Kamandag. “I was so blessed and thankful, kasi may mga ibang artista na pag nawalan ng show, ang tagal nilang nag-aantay ng offer. So noong dumating yan, sabi ko, ang tagal na nila akong kinukuhang maging partner ni Richard (Gutierrez) and magka-soap sa GMA, lagi kong tinatanggihan because of my studies. So now na fourth year na ako in college, sabi ko, baka this is the right time.”

Looking back

This college senior [she’s taking up Social Sciences at the Ateneo de Manila University] imparts the reasons why she turned down previous offers. “Actually, every time gumagawa si Richard ng soap, tina-try akong kunin nila tita Anabelle (Rama), kasi syempre nga, to try yung chemistry namin,” Maxene explains. “Ang pinaka-unang in-offer sa akin, Mulawin (2004). And then hindi ko nga siya tinaggap because I was supposed to enter college pa lang at that time, e sabi ko, hindi pa ako adjusted sa college; I [still didn’t] know what it’s like in college.”“So when I entered college, ayun na nga, tinangggap ni Angel (Locsin), and sumikat siya. I didn’t have any regrets na ‘Sayang, sana tinaggap ko na lang,’ because at the end of the day, I’m still happy, and she was also happy that she got what she wanted. Si Angel, she soared, she earned so much, she did so much, and she achieved so much, na talagang win-win situation for everyone.”Maxene acknowledges the fact that she comes from a family of celebrities, and this played a big role in her decision to focus on school. “Not a lot of young celebrities have that advantage na like now, I’m so thankful na bumalik na ako [sa acting], and tinatanggap pa rin ako ng Filipino audience. And feeling ko one of the reasons for that [is] dad ko, showbiz, lolo’t lola ko, showbiz, so feeling ko I have that advantage.”She continues, “Hindi ako yung parang artista na ‘strike while the iron is hot.’ Kasi some artistas, sikat sila ngayon, tapos next time, hindi na. So feeling ko, [it wasn’t] my time [yet] – [kaya] give it to someone else muna.”“So in-offer sa akin yung Mulawin (2004), Sugo (2004), Encantadia (2005), Captain Barbell (2006), tapos Lupin (2007). Actually, every time, tinatanong nila [sa mom ko], ‘O, pwede na ba si Maxene?’ Biglang ngayon, sinabi ko, ‘Why not?’ Kasi I have ten classes left to take in college, so sobrang konti na lang. [I only have] two sems left!” Now that she’s “3/4 done with college,” it’s not that difficult for her to make minor adjustments to her schedule to accommodate a new TV show. For instance, Maxene made it a point to take all her classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so she can have taping days every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.“Noong nakuha ko 'yung offer, sabi ko, perfect timing -- alam mo yung ganoon? Yung talagang surprised na ang galing-galing! Ang bait lang talaga ni God! Isa pang surprise, I got a high QPI last sem, I got 3.17! Dapat 3.25 ang Dean’s List, so sayang, but because of that, I’m gonna strive to do even better. Sana maka-Dean’s List na ako next sem!”Maxene admits, however, that she hasn’t always been that decided on pursuing a showbiz career. “There was a time, syempre noong nag-lay low ako, I was still finding myself kung ito ba talaga [ang] gusto kong gawin; [if] my heart’s really here. Noong time na yun, yes, na-feel ko yung pressure na akala ko, kaya lang ako naga-artista dahil sa parents ko, dahil sa lolo’t lola ko. So naisip ko, ito ba talaga? That’s why medyo nag-lay low muna, one show lang [DaddyDiDoDu], [then] guestings here and there. [Inuna] ko muna studies ko. And that’s when I realized na nakaka-miss. [And the realization that] not everyone gets this kind of chance.”She adds, “Sayang naman, and if it’s offered to me, which it was, itong Kamandag, sabi ko, [bakit] hindi ko pa tatanggapin, e malapit naman na akong matapos ng college? It will be a big help to my family. A lot of girls would want to be in my place. Talagang very blessed ako.”

The primetime battle remained one-sided.

Talking about the top spot, Marimar remained unruffled despite Kamandag's unrelenting hustle. On November 26, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes earned 44.9 percent while Kamandag gathered 41.4 percent.

Despite relinquishing the second spot since Kamandag's entry, Zaido is still an adversary to contend with. Last Monday, November 26, Zaido took the fourth spot, pacing 24 Oras's 36.3 percent rating.

"Masarap sa pakiramdam." Ganyan kung i-describe ni Richard Gutierrez ang magandang feedback sa bago niyang series na Kamandag.

Maraming nag-congratulate kay Richard dahil napakaganda ng kanyang ‘ahaserye.’

"Nakatutuwa ang magandang feedback," sey ni Richard.

Magagaling ang mga kasama ni Richard sa Kamandag, lalo na si Benjie Paras na taong unggoy ang papel.

Kamandag's Wednesday Episode

Maganda ang Wednesday episode ng Kamandag. Umpisa pa lang ay punong puno na ito ng action. Tinulungan ni Vergel ang batang tinangay ng mga hold upper upang gawing hostage laban sa mga Pulis. Dinala ng mga ito ang bata sa isang Basketball Gym kung saan may isang taong nakakita sa mga pangyayari.

Nagawang sagipin ni Vergel ang kawawang bata, nakilala cya nito. Sabi ng bata "sinabi ko na nga ba super hero ka", ngiti lang ang sagot ni Vergel. At sinabi niya dito na sekreto lang nilang dalawa ito.

Dito narealize ng binata kung ano ang papel nya sa mundo at ano ang kelangan niyang gawin. Kaya umuwi na rin cya sa wakas sa kanila dahil nahanap na niya ang kasagutan sa kanyang mga tanong. Sa pag uwi nya ay naghihintay ang kanyang kababatang c Lily at ang kanyang kapatid. Sa katuwaan ni Lily ay hindi niya namalayang naakap na pala niya c Vergel (Kilig ako).

Dagaw is an upcoming suspense movie of Richard Gutierrez. He plays as Reden. They have started shooting last August and were supposed to be shown last November 2007 but due to the tight schedule of Richard Gutierrez they were not able to finish the movie soon and showing has been moved to June 2008, since Richard also started shooting for his Fantaserye Kamandag which is currently airing on GMA 7 every night.

This is the second horror film produced by GMA films next to OUIJA.

The story centers on a group of vacationers in an isolated island in Visayas, and a doppelganger.


Carlo J Caparas

GAGAMBINO is said to be the next project of Richard Gutierrez after Kamandag in Philippine Primetime. GMA 7 will do the remake of Carlo J. Caparas Comic masterpiece. Tentative schedule for airing is on February 2008 [subject to change].

I wonder if this will be like Spiderman or something different.. Oh well, all I have to do is wait 'til it will be aired on GMA but one thing is for sure this will be another exciting Primetime Fantaserye [or Gagambaserye?!].

Richard doesn’t hear from Angel anymore

By: Mario E. Bautista
Journal Online
November 28, 2007

DON’T be surprised if Richard Gutierrez is smiling from ear to ear these days. His “Kamandag” is rating a consistent 42% above every night, making it one of GMA7’s highest-rating shows. “And generally, maganda ang feedback so all of us in the show are very pleased and we’re confident tataas pa ang rating in the weeks to come as the story gets more and more exciting,” he says. He’s only happy that he was chosen by GMA Films to be Marian Rivera’s leading man in the first movie she’s filming after “Marimar” hit it big. The number one actor and the number one actress of GMA7 are now paired in GMA Films’ special Valentine presentation, “A Very Special Love.” Supporting him and Marian are JC de Vera, Ehra Madrigal and Paolo Paraiso. Marian has yet to shoot as she still has to go to the U.S. with “Marimar” partner Dingdong Dantes to launch GMA Pinoy TV in Las Vegas. Doesn’t Richard miss Angel Locsin who’s usually his partner in the Valentine flicks he’s been doing almost yearly for the past three years? “After we shot that commercial in Thailand, I haven’t heard from her anymore. I’m sure busy kasi siya at busy rin naman ako. But I’m very positive this new tandem with Marian will also be accepted warmly by the public. At least, bago naman ang makakasama ko rito.”

NAPAKALAKAS talaga ng dating ng bagongs serye sa telebisyon ni Richard Gutierrez na may titulong Kamandag. At marami nga ang nagsasabi na ilang panahon pa at posibleng malampasan pa nito ang ratings ng Marimar. Maganda kasi ang pagkakagawa ng Kamandag at sa palagay namin ay talagang pinagsikapan ng GMA-7 na tumindi para mapatunayang kaya nilang ulitin talaga kung ano man ang nagawa na nila noon kay Angel Locsin. Akala namin noong una ay pre-sold na nga ang kuwento ng seryeng iyan. Pero, hindi pala iyong serye ni Carlo Caparas na inilabas sa People’s Journal noon ang pinatakbo nilang kuwento kungdi nilagyan ng Kapuso network ng sarili nilang version. Mayroon silang bagong characters na fictional at ang dating nga ng serye, kung kami ang tatanungin, ay mas matindi pa roon sa Mulawin na ginawa nila noon na nag-set ng panibagong trend sa telebisyon. Fantasy pa rin ang dating ng Kamandag ni Richard, na sinasabi nga nilang mukhang siya lang ang makagagawa dahil iyon daw hitsura ni Richard ay mukhang bida talaga sa fantasy series. Kung gayon puwede nang koronahan si Richard Gutierrez na “hari” ng mga fantaserye.

Nagmukha ngang bilasa iyong ibang mga naunang shows na mabilis nilang tinalo sa ratings. At ngayon, sinasabi ng observers na mukha ngang hindi uubra sa seryeng iyan kahit na ang isa pang series na bida si Angel Locsin na maaaring ilabas ng kabilang network.

Sa nakikita namin ngayon, mukhang puro matitinding serye ang inilalabas ng Channel 7, dahil siguro nga, gusto nilang matiyak na hindi makakalaban sa ratings ang anumang show na gagawin ni Angel Locsin sa kalaban nilang istasyon. Oras nga namang mangamote si Angel, who will have the last laugh?

Training Richard Gutierrez

MANILA, Philippines -- Like a true Pinoy, Brandon Vera dunks his pan de sal in his coffee cup before wolfing it down.
The mixed martial arts specialist, who is in town to train actor Richard Gutierrez for "Kamandag," surprised the GMA 7 show's cast and crew because he speaks Tagalog and has retained very Filipino traits.
Case in point: He says that he prefers the pan de sal made by a small bakery in San Diego, California, to that one sold by a famous franchise because "it's not Americanized."
He has eight tattoos. "All alibata words: apoy (fire), hangin (wind), bundok (mountain), tubig (water), pamilya (family) and Diyos (God). I'm planning to get one more, a Philippine flag, on my right arm."A fan of Vera's, Gutierrez had personally requested GMA 7 to hire the heavyweight as his fight instructor.
Fortunately, Vera's sister Michelle is a fan of Pinoy show biz. "She loves Richard," Vera relates.Brandon was equally star-struck when he visited "Showbiz Central." He admits, "Rufa Mae Quinto was my first crush."
"He gave up a lot of jobs in the US for this one because he loves the Philippines," says Jeff Clark, Vera's manager.
It's Vera's fifth time in the country. "I have a lot of relatives here.
I had my honeymoon in Bohol," he says.
He's married to another fighter, Kerry, who is featured on the Oxygen show, "Fight Girls."
The first and only Filipino in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Vera is nicknamed
"The Truth" by the US press.
First acting gig
"It's because I'm brutally frank," he points out.
"The Truth" is cast as "The Assassin" on "Kamandag"―his first acting gig.
He has taught Gutierrez muay Thai and Brazilian jiujitsu moves, such as the flying arm bar, arm drag to back take, choke hold, among others.
He describes Gutierrez as an apt student. "I was surprised. I thought I'd have a hard time, but our training went smoothly. I suppose he's as good a student as he is an actor."

( )


Photos are taken during the Grand Launching of Kamandag Last November 18, 2007 at UP Theater. The cast had been introduced. Though marami ang nagsabing medyo bitin ang launching kasi maikli lang yung oras. Hoping na mas naintroduce ng maayos ang mga cast. Wala c Gardo Versusa sa Grand Launch ang gumanap na ama ni Richard Gutierrez sa Kamandag.
Dalawa sa RGGFC members ang nakadalo sa Grand Launch ng Kamandag para suportahan c Chard, cna Rayne at Anne, at nagkaroon din sila ng chance na ma-meet ang mga chardwel supporters.
Successful din ang first week nito. Hindi pa bumaba sa 40% ang ratings. Sana tuloy tuoly na ang pamamayagpag ng kamandag.
Last Friday ay nalaman na ni Vergel (batang vergel) na cya ay isang ambog. Nako-control na rin nya ang kapangyarihang taglay niya.
In behalf of the RGGFC we also would like to thank Jun Lalin for the support at hindi na kelangan pang pumila ang mga ka sis namin sa labas ng UP Theater para lang makapasok. At sa nag assist din sa kanila.. Maraming salamat sa inyo.

Alindog ni Marian, puring-puri ni Richard
Rey Pumaloy

Wala na ngang maisagot si Richard Gutierrez sa entertainment press kapag kinukumusta sa kanya ang dati niyang ka-loveteam na si Angel Locsin.Sabi ni Richard, matapos ang syuting nila ni Angel para sa isang shampoo sa Thailand ay hindi na sila nagkausap muli.Sabi pa ni Richard, busy rin siya sa Kamandag at alam niyang busy rin si Angel sa trabaho nito sa ABS-CBN.Pero, sinisiguro ni Richard na friends pa rin sila ni Angel at hindi magbabago `yon, kahit ano pa ang mangyari.Anyway, si Marian Rivera nga ang napipisil na makapareha ni Richard sa isang pelikula. At para sa kanya, pasadung-pasado si Marian.Say ni Richard, bukod sa maganda ay charming pa si Marian. Hindi nga raw kataka-taka kung ligawan ni Richard si Marian.Pero, ngumiti lang si Richard, sabay puri sa kagandahan ni Marian. Sabi pa niya, kahit sinong lalake ay magugustuhan si Marian.Pero, iginiit ni Richard na wala muna siyang panahon ngayon sa mga babae. Marami raw kasing naglalarong project sa kanyang utak na kailangan niyang pagtuunan ng pansin.Well, kapag walang lovelife si Richard at puro trabaho ang nasa utak, ang mommy niyang si Annabelle Rama ang siguradong tuwang-tuwa."Hindi ko alam kung natutuwa si mommy dahil wala akong lovelife ngayon. Si mommy kasi, biglang naghahanap ng girlfriend ko kapag wala akong girlfriend."Siya pa ‘yung nagsasabi sa akin na bakit daw ako nakipag-break, eh, ang bait-bait daw nu’ng girl. Ganun si mommy."Teka lang, hanggang kailan kaya siya makakatiis na walang babae sa buhay niya?"Hindi ko alam. Pero sana mapanindigan ko. Kapag iniisip ko ang mga schedules ko, alam ko na agad na magiging unfair lang ako sa babae kapag nakipagrelasyon ako."Pero nandiyan naman ang family ko," say na lang ni Richard.

Kapatid ni Brandon, crush na crush si Richard

GUSTONG bumalik agad sa Pilipinas ni Brandon Vera dahil nami-miss na niya ang buong cast at staff ng Kamandag. Mahusay ang naging pag-aasikaso ng mga ito sa kanya habang naririto, kaya feeling ni Brandon, kulang ang ginawang two-week stay sa bansa. Isa pa, gusto rin niyang ituloy ang nasimulang pag-aartista, kaya naman panay ang text niya sa mga kasamahan sa Kamandag, kung saan bukod sa pagiging personal fight instructor ng bidang si Richard Gutierrez, ginagampanan din niya ang papel ng isang hired assassin. Ang promise raw ni Brandon, babalik siya bago mag-Pasko at dapat, hintayin siya ng Kamandag cast and staff bago sila mag-Christmas party.
* * *
PAGBALIK ni Brandon, isa rin sa mga pag-uusapan ay ang negosyong itatayo nila ni Richard Gutierrez dito sa Manila. Nakatakda rin siyang bumili ng bahay na paghahatian din nila ni Richard. Puring-puri ni Brandon ang anak ni Annabelle Rama. Sobrang bait daw nito’t hindi feeling superstar. Sikat daw si Richard sa Filipino community sa America dahil sa GMA Pinoy TV. Pati sister nga raw niya’y crush na crush ang kakambal ni Raymond. Ang hindi nabanggit ay kung isasama rito ni Brandon ang kapatid na dalaga para personal na makilala si Richard.

Dennis Trillo nilampaso ni Richard Gutierrez
By: Ed De Leon

TALAGANG kailangan pa rin naman pala ang stars na may malakas na following para masiguro ang ratings ng isang TV show. May mga nagsasabi nga sa amin na nasira na ang star system sa ating bansa nang sumikat ang ibang TV shows na walang masyadong malalaking stars.
Pero, nang ilabas iyong bagong serye ni Richard Gutierrez (Kamandag), at sa unang araw pa lamang ay tinalo na nito ang tele-serye ni Dennis Trillo na biglang bagsak sa No. 3 spot, aba , eh, maliwanag na lamang pa rin talaga ang sikat na mga star.May nagsasabi naman na baka kaya ganoon ang nangyari ay dahil parang bagsak ngayon ang popularidad ni Dennis Trillo dahil sa hindi magagandang tsismis na kanyang kinasangkutan. Eh, papaano mo naman maipapaliwanag iyong marami pa siyang ibang young stars na kasama roon at hindi pa rin sila makaabante laban kay Richard?

TV Ratings (Nov. 20-22): "Whammy!" and "PBB Celebrity Edition" improve their ratings

"Kamandag and Prinsesa ng Banyera make their presence felt."

Whammy! Push Your Luck escaped Kapamilya, Deal or No Deal's gallant stand last Tuesday, November 20. Carrying a slim margin, Paolo Bediones and Rufa Mae Quinto's game show on GMA-7 posted a 23.5 percent rating against Kris Aquino's ABS-CBN game show, 22.4 percent, to claim the top spot anew in the daytime column.Despite falling short once again, Deal or No Deal's Tuesday performance was strong enough to outmuscle Eat Bulaga, Daisy Siete, and Pasan Ko ang Daigdig—all perennial topnotchers in the group.

In the primetime race, Marimar remained rock solid at the No. 1 spot, with Kamandag looming steadily at second place. Collecting a 43.4 percent rating last Tuesday, Marimar still got the better of Richard Gutierrez's new fantaserye, which registered a 40.9 percent rating.Unpredictable Lastikman pulled a 24.2 percent rating to shoot its way back to the Top 10. Lastikman was followed by Princess Sarah's 23.7 percent grade.

Wednesday, November 21, still belonged to Whammy! although following it this time was Eat Bulaga. Settling at second best, Eat Bulaga! tallied a 22.4 percent rating to beat Daisy Siete's 21.8 percent. Filling in the bottom part were Pilipinas, Game KNB? (17.8 percent) and Pinoy Movie Hits (17.4 percent).Marimar once again topped the primetime block, while four other Kapuso shows made it into the Top 5—Kamandag (No. 2, 40.1 percent), Zaido (No. 3, 36.8 percent), 24 Oras (No. 4, 33.3 percent), and La Vendetta (No. 5, 31.8 percent). Another GMA-7 show, Hwang Jini, tied with Lastikman in No. 10 with identical 21.5 percent rating.Meanwhile, the sixth to ninth spots were occupied by ABS-CBN programs: TV Patrol World (28.1 percent), Princess Sarah (27.2 percent), Pangarap na Bituin (26.1 percent), and Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition (24.2 percent).

November 22, Thursday, was more interesting as daytime shows were locked in fierce competition, resulting in deadlocks.Eat Bulaga! and Daisy Siete both got 22.5 percent rating to share the top spot while Wowowee, Pasan Ko ang Daigdig, and Deal or No Deal each collected a rating of 19.3 to crowd the No.3 position.The logjam enabled other programs usually outside the Top 10 to barge in like Prinsesa ng Banyera, which accumulated a rating of 13 percent, good for ninth spot, followed by SiS's 10.5 percent.Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition, meanwhile, improved its ranking thanks to the voluntary exit of two of its housemates, Mcoy Fundales and Ethel Booba. PBB moved a few steps higher to nail the No.6 position with its 28.4 percent rating.

But it's business as usual in the Top 10 positions as the top five slots were occupied by five Kapuso shows while the bottom half were occupied by Kapamilya shows.Here are the Top 10 shows for daytime and primetime programming from November 20 to 22 according to the overnight ratings conducted by AGB Nielsen Philippines among Mega Manila households:

SOBRANG crush ni Brandon Vera si Ehra Madrigal. Kaya bago siya umalis ng bansa ay nagpa-download pa siya sa kanyang cellphone ng awitin ni Ogie Alcasid na Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang? Nang makilala niya si Ehra, biglang naging sentimental si Brandon at gustung-gusto niyang pakinggan palagi ang awiting ito ni Ogie. Nasabi ni Brandon na kung single pa siya ngayon, hindi na niya lulubayan si Ehra dahil attracted talaga siya sa beauty ng voluptuous actress. Hindi naman niya pinagsisihan ang nasabi niya sa national television na crush niya si Ehra, na previously niyang sinabi nang mag-guest siya sa Nuts Enterainment sa portion ng Balakubak. Inulit niya ito sa presscon ng Kamandag. Pero, bago siya bumalik sa Amerika ay nag-sorry siya kay Ehra. Dahil sa pagta-tapat niya’y pinagtatanong na ng press si Ehra tungkol kay Brandon . Eh, balita na-min ay single pa rin si Ehra at walang commitment ngayon. Speaking of Kamandag, malapit nang mapanood na malalaki na sina Richard Gutierrez, bilang si Vergel, at kanyang mga kalarong sina Lily (Maxene Magalona), Lucero (Mark Anthony Fernandez), Jenny (Jewel Mische) at Ditas (Ehra Madrigal).

Buhos ang ulan nang dinalaw namin ang taping ng Kamandag kung saan kinukunan ang enkuwentro ng bidang si Richard Gutierrez at ng grupo nina Biboy Ramirez, Kevin Santos at Josef Marcelo.Kahit sa loob ang eksenang kinukunan ay dinig na dinig ang nangangalit na buhos ng ulan bilang hudyat ng dumadating na bagyo sa bansa.Kahit masama ang panahon ay ganado ang mga tao sa likod ng bagong telefantasya ng GMA 7 sa consistent 40+ ratings nito.Worried ang ina ni Richard na si Annabelle Rama (na nakita namin sa bagong bukas na Lugawan Republic ni Gladys Guevarra sa Metrowalk sa Pasig) dahil nagsu-shooting na rin ang anak ng tambalan nila ni Marian Rivera.Dalangin niya na walang aberya habang sabay na ginagawa ng anak ang Kamandag at ang movie with Marian.Samantala, napanood namin ang isa pang episode ng Marimar (na consistent din ang 40+ ratings) at namangha kami sa laki ng improvement sa acting ni Marian.Napiga ng box office director na si Joyce Bernal si Marian at napaarte niya ito nang husto. Gayun din si Dingdong Dantes, huh!

Dumalaw ako sa shooting ng A Very Special Love, ang Valentine movie nina Richard Gutierrez at Marian Rivera under GMA Films/Regal Entertainment, Inc.Sa isang car shop sa EDSA, Greenhills ang locatiion nila that day. Nandoon sina Richard, JC de Vera, Ehra Madrigal, Paolo Paraiso at iba pang artista. Hindi kasama sa shooting si Marian.Ang dinig ko, nakapag-shooting na si Marian, pero sa Disyembre na uli siya magre-resume ng shooting dahil aalis sila ni Dingdong Dantes para sa launching ng GMA Pinoy TV sa Las Vegas, Nevada.Going back to the shooting of A Very Special Love, naikuwento sa akin ni Richard na excited siya sa first team-up nila ni Marian. Noon pa niya kakilala ang dalaga at nakakakuwentuhan na niya ito, pero first time nilang pagsasama ito sa isang project.Very positive si Richard sa pelikulang ito.Siyanga pala, masaya rin si Richard sa magandang feedback sa Kamandag, ang ahaserye niya sa GMA 7.
