Sa pinakabagong show ni Richard Gutierrez, ang 'Full Force Nature,' na-ihighlight ang environmental advocacy ng actor. Marami ang nagulat na miyembro pala ng Greenpeace si Richard kaya naman noong press conference ng show, naibahagi ng actor ang kanyang mga experiences sa pagiging aktibo sa movement na ito. Text by Loretta G. Ramirez, Photos courtesy of GMA Network



Ang Greenpeace ay isa sa pinaka active na environmental groups sa buong mundo. Layunin nito na baguhin ang attitude at behavior ng mga tao upang i-conserve at maprotektahan ang ating environment.

Naging miyembro nito si Richard Gutierrez last year at simula noon, naging active na si Richard sa mga environmental campaigns ng grupo. He even asked the help of GMA Network para matulungan siya sa kanyang adhikain.

"Right now, I'm still talking with Greenpeace kung anong mga puwede naming gawin. Pero I'm very committed. I've approached GMA-7 and Bench to help me out and they're all willing to help out naman. So, it's gonna be a big movement,” ang pahayag ni Richard noong nagsisimula pa lang siya sa movement na ito last year.

So far, bukod sa Full Force Nature, nag-host na rin siya ng isang GMA News and Public Affairs documentary, ang Signos: Banta ng Nagbabagong Klima, kung saan hina-highlight ang climate change sa mundo. Tulad ng Full Force Nature layunin nito na magbigay ng information about global warming at isulong ang movement para ma-save ang environment.



Dinagdag pa niya na masayang masaya siya sa bago niyang show dahil matagal na niyang gustong magkaron ng infotainment show which will highlight his environmental advocacy.

"Very important show sa akin itong Full Force Nature. Matagal kong pinangarap magkaroon ng show na ganito dahil ito talaga ang advocacy ko, tungkol sa nature, and I'm very happy and thankful na binigyan ako ng pagkakataon ng GMA-7 na mai-share din yung mga nalalaman ko tungkol sa nature. And of course, itong show will showcase different natural disasters na nangyayari globally and 'yun 'yung target talaga namin, not only to entertain the viewers but also to give them awareness and also to give them information kung anong pwede nating gawin as Filipinos para maiwasan ang paglaganap ng global warming," ang paliwanag ni Richard sa amin.

Suportahan si Richard at ang kanyang layunin to help save the environment, manood ng Full Force Nature, Tuesday nights, right after the Primetime Telebabad block.

Superstar syndrome bad sa career ni Richard Gutierrez




Superstar syndrome bad sa career ni Richard Gutierrez
By: Ed De Leon
Dream

MUKHANG tama ang comment na aming nari-nig mula sa isang movie observer.

Sa ngayon daw, kaya matamlay rin ang industriya ng pelikula at tele-bisyon, dahil wala ngang ibang matinee idols na pinaglalaban-laban kagaya noong araw.

Kung natatandaan ninyo, noon, basta may matinee idols na nagpapasikatan ng kani-kani-lang pelikula o TV show, talagang masigla ang mga fans. Ngayon, maliban kay Richard Gutierrez, si-no pa ang masasabing makinang na matinee idol na talagang malakas ang following at magpapa-excite nang husto sa fans?

Maski nga ang ABS-CBN, aminado na wala si-lang malaking matinee idol. Kaya nga hiniram pa ng Star Cinema, sister company ng Dos, si Richard para maging leading man sa pelikula ng gusto nilang pasikatin nang hustong si KC Concepcion. Kung may mai-lalaban ang Star Cinema kay Richard, hihiramin pa nila ito para may maitambal lang kay KC? Natural mas papaboran nila ang artista nila.

Sa GMA-7 naman, si-no ba ang matinee idol ni-la na mailalaban pa kay Richard?

Ang akala namin no-ong una ay magtutuluy-tuloy na ang pagiging number one ng Gagam-bino ni Dennis Trillo. Hindi pala. Bumaba rin agad ang ratings nito. Hindi kagaya ng shows ni Ri-chard na consistent top-rater at masasabing walang katapat talaga.

Sobra nga ang hatak ni Richard. Na hindi maganda para sa industriya. Ka-si, basta nagkaroon na ng isang top matinee idol at walang ibang puwedeng ipantay sa kanyang puwesto, siya at siya na lang ang binibigyan ng proyekto ng TV or movie producers.

Ang nangyayari, dumarating ang puntong, although siya pa rin ang top matinee idol, kinasa-sawaan nang panoorin ng fans ang kanyang pelikula o TV soap.

Isang halimbawa rito ay ang Superstar syndrome ni Nora Aunor. ‘Di ba super-dami ang kanyang fans, pero hindi naman nila lahat pinapanood ang mga pelikula ni Ate Guy.

Naniniwala kami na da-pat ay mayroon talagang ibang matitinding matinee idols para palaging exci-ted ang fans. Sad to say, sa ngayon, si Richard lang talaga

Gutierrez brothers, malungkot sa pagpanaw ni Marky

Gutierrez brothers, malungkot sa pagpanaw ni Marky
Jun Lalin

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA ­--- Sabado na nang magkita kami ni Annabelle Rama sa Palazzo Resort, Hotel and Casino.

Niyaya akong mag-lunch ni Bisaya sa Zine at kasama niya roon sina Tito Eddie, Mary Ann Opeña (kasama ang anak nitong si Jemel), Rachel Cruz (ground staff ng Philippine Airlines sa Los Angeles) at iba pa.

Pagkatapos kumain ay nagulat ako nang kunin ni Tito Eddie ang wheelchair sa isang tabi at doon suma­kay si Bisaya. Ang veteran actor ang nagtulak ng wheelchair ni Bisaya.

“Hindi ko kasi kayang lumakad nang lumakad. Buti na lang at mahal ako ng asawa ko at siya ang nagtutulak ng wheelchair,” sey ni Bisaya.
“Naku, kahapon si Richard ang nagtutulak ng wheelchair,” sey naman ni Tita Mary Ann.

Ang sweet tingnan nina Bisaya at Tito Eddie.

***

Bago ako umalis ng L.A. noong Biyernes ay tinawagan na ako ni Bisaya kaugnay ng mga pahayag ni Dr. Manny Calayan against her.

Pina-text sa akin ni Bisaya si Dr. Calayan ng, “Sinimulan mo ‘to, tatapusin ko!”
Nananahimik si Bisaya at sinimulan siya ni Dr. Calayan, kaya sasagutin niya ang mga pahayag nito laban sa kanya.

Nakausap ko si Dr. Calayan at naloka ako nang nag-deny siya samantalang maraming nakarinig sa mga pahayag niya laban kay Bisaya.

May dialogue pa si Dr. Calayan na sinabi raw niya na “Ok naman kami ni Tita” sa mga reporter na kausap niya sa L.A.

Dahil sa pinagsasasabi ni Dr. Calayan against Bisaya ay asahang magsasalita na siya kung ano talaga ang dahilan kaya umalis ang anak niyang si Ruffa Gutierrez bilang image model ng beauty clinic ng nasabing cosmetic surgeon.

***

Masaya si Raymond Gutierrez at ang mga kapatid niyang sina Richard, Rocky, Elvis at Ritchie Paul sa pagkakapanalo ni Manny Pacquiao sa boxing fight nila ni Oscar De La Hoya.

Pero ‘yung kasiyahan nila ay nahaluan ng lungkot nang makarating sa kanila ang balitang patay na si Marky Cielo.

Nakasama nina Richard, Rocky at Elvis si Marky sa Codename: Asero. Mabait daw talaga ang namayapang young actor.

Si Raymond ang host ng StarStruck 3 kung saan si Marky ang grand winner.
“I’m so sad. Marky’s so nice pa naman,” paha­yag ni Raymond.

Ako man ay nalungkot din nang ibalita ni Jhops Cruz ng GMA 7 ang pagkamatay ni Marky.

Lungkot na lungkot din ang mga taga-GMA 7, lalo na ang Lalola cast and staff.
Kasama sa cast ng Lalola si Marky bilang si Billy at kapareha ni Lovi Poe.
Sa mga naulila ni Marky, our condolences.

***

Pagkatapos ng bo­xing fight nina Manny Pacquiao at Oscar De La Hoya ay bumalik sa Pa­lazzo Hotel ang pamilya Gu­tierrez at doon sila nag-family dinner.
Kapagkuwan ay pumunta sila sa Mandalay Bay Hotel kung saan ay may after party para kay Pacquiao.

Wala sa after party ang Pambansang Kamao, kaya umakyat na lang si Annabelle Rama kasama ang mister na si Eddie Gutierrez at anak na si Raymond Gutierrez sa suite room ni Manny.

Kasama sina Manny at Jinkee at iba pang mga tao sa loob ng suite room ay pinanood nila ang replay ng boxing fight.

Maingay sa loob ng kuwarto kaya hindi kami gaanong magkarinigan ni Bisaya.
Hindi na raw sumama sa kanila sa suite room ni Manny si Richard dahil pagod na ang binata.

As you read this, pa­balik na sa Los Angeles, California ang pamilya Gutierrez.
Sa Biyernes ang alis nila ng L.A.

Annabelle at Wilma, nagkaayos na




Annabelle at Wilma, nagkaayos na
Jun Lalin

LOS ANGELES, CA. Pagkatapos ng ilang buwang hindi pagkakasundo nina Annabelle Rama at Wilma Galvante (executive vice-president for entertainment ng GMA 7), nagkabati na sila sa LAX (Los Angeles airport) noong Miyerkules nang gabi.
Magkasabay sa Philippine Airlines PR102 flight that day sina Ma’am Wilma at Richard Gutierrez (kasama ang kuyang si Rocky).
After almost an hour na paghihintay sa arrival area, nakita ko kaagad si Ma’am Wilma na nakalabas na. Kasama niya ang anak na si Clara (na production assistant dati sa Codename: Asero).
Nakita rin ni Eddie Gutierrez ang GMA 7-executive at lumapit kaagad dito ang mister ni Bisaya.
Konting kumustahan. Nabanggit ni Tita Wilma kay Tito Eddie na sayang at kinailangang i-give-up ng beteranong aktor ang role sana nito sa Luna Mystica.
“Hindi bale, bibigyan kita ng bago, action naman,” sey raw ni Ma’am Wilma kay Tito Eddie sabay hanap kay Bisaya.
“Nasaan si Annabelle, babatiin ko siya,” sabi raw ni Ma’am Wilma kay Tito Eddie at kaagad inituro ng beteranong aktor ang kanyang misis na nakaupo sa may waiting lounge dahil hindi pa kaya ni Bisaya ang nakatayo nang matagal.
Paglapit ni Ma’am Wilma kay Bisaya ay nag-kiss sila sa isa’t isa. Kinumusta ng GMA 7-executive ang kalagayan ng dating nakatampuhan.
Parang walang nangyaring problema sa kanila sa eksenang nakita ko.
Nag-dialogue pa si Bisaya na medyo hirap pa siya dahil sa kanyang operasyon. Si Ma’am Wilma naman ay nagsabing dapat kasi ay 45 days munang magpahinga ang Gutierrez matriach.
Sey ko sa dalawa, kailangang kunan ko sila ng picture.
“Kailangan may scoop photo ako ng pagbabati n’yo!” sey ko at parehong natawa sina Bisaya at Ma’am Wilma at saka nag-pose para sa aking camera.
Maya-maya ay lumapit si Mother Lily Monteverde sa dalawa at pinag-pose ko silang tatlo.
Masayang-masaya si Mother Lily sa pagbabati nina Bisaya at Ma’am Wilma.
“Ang saya-saya nilang tingnan. Ang ganda na bati-bati lahat. I’m so happy for them,” sey ni Mother Lily, na kasabay rin pala nina Tita Wilma at Richard sa nabanggit na PAL flight.
Si Tito Eddie ay nakatingin lang isang tabi kina Bisaya at Ma’am Wilma. Obvious na masaya rin ang mister ni Bisaya sa pagkakabati ng misis at ng isa sa big bosses ng Siyete.
After no’n ay lumapit na rin sina Raymond at Tita Mary Ann Opeña na tuwang-tuwa rin.
Maya-maya ay nagpaalam na si Ma’am Wilma at ihahatid na raw sila ng sundo nilang si Josh Andowitt (PR ng GMA Pinoy TV).
Pagdating sa arrival area nina Richard at Rocky Gutierrez ay natuwa sila nang malamang bati na ang kanilang mommy at si Ma’am Wilma.
Ang maganda kina Tito Eddie at sa ibang mga anak ni Bisaya (including Ruffa na taga-ABS-CBN), never silang nag-comment sa naging gap ng kanilang ina at ni Tita Wilma.
Gusto rin nila na maayos na ang gap sa pagitan ng dalawa, kaya nang ibalita ko ‘yon kay Ruffa ay nag-dialogue kaagad ang TV host/actress ng, “Salamat naman. That’s good news!”
Nang papunta na kami ni Bisaya sa terminal ng United Airlines para sa kanilang flight papuntang Las Vegas, Nevada ay ramdam ko sa boses ni Bisaya ang kasiyahan na nagkaayos sila ni Ma’am Wilma.
***
Para sa KChardees fans na naghihintay ng update sa second movie nina Richard Gutierrez at KC Concepcion, this time under GMA Films and Regal Entertainment, ang kuwento sa akin ni Bisaya, sa December 17 na sila magsisimulang mag-shooting.
Hanggang December 23 daw ang shooting nina Richard at KC at magpapahinga lang sila para sa Christmas.
Kukunan sa December 17 ang ilang eksena na gagamiting teaser ng pelikula na malamang na ikarga sa mga pelikula ng Regal Films na ipalalabas sa MMFF.
Sabi ng KChardees, nakahanda silang suportahan nang todo-todo ang second movie nina Richard at KC.
Willing ang KChardees na mag-set-up ng funds na gagamitin para magkaroon ng matinding awareness sa nabanggit na pelikula.

Richard Gutierrez secure sa ‘relasyon’ nila ni KC




Richard Gutierrez secure sa ‘relasyon’ nila ni KC
By: Tonee Coraza
Whatever

MASUSUBUKAN ang galing ni Richard Gutierrez sa pagho-host at pagiging isang environmentalist sa bago niyang infotainment show na Full Force Nature na palabas tuwing Martes bilang kapalit ng World Records sa Bilib Ka Ba Nights after GMA Telebabad.

Pupunta si Richard sa iba’t ibang sulok ng Pili-pinas para bigyan tayo ng first-hand view ng hagupit ng kalikasan maging bagyo man, lindol, pagsabog ng bulkan o kung anumang ti-yak na ikagugulat at ikamamangha natin.

“Lubos akong nagpapasalamat sa GMA-7 sa pagbibigay sa akin ng ga-nitong show. Kasi, may magandang pagkakataon akong i-share ang kaalaman ko sa environment para maiwasan ang global warming. Isa kasi ‘yan sa pinakamabigat na problema ngayon ng mundo kasama na ang overpopulation, hunger at global warming. Magbibigay ako sa show ng tips at pointers para makatulong sa pagpapabuti ng ating klima,” ani Richard na member ng Greenpeace-Asia.

Naikabit ang pangalan ni KC Concepcion lately sa hiwalayang Sam Milby at Anne Curtis dahil sa lumabas na item na balak daw ligawan ni Sam si KC, na mariin namang itinanggi ni Sam.

Ano ang masasabi rito ni Richard?

“No comment! Basta good luck na lang sa lahat ng gustong manligaw kay KC,”matipid pero malaman na sagot ng aktor.

Mukhang hindi man lang nakikitaan si Richard ni katiting na pagkabahala o insecurity kung may ibang magmanligaw kay KC.

Aminado si Chard na ganoon siya ka-secure sa ‘relasyon’ at pagtitinginan nila ng dalaga ni Mega.

Sisimulan na nina Chard at KC ang shooting ng Valentine’s movie nila under GMA Films ngayong December.

Napagdesisyunan ng GMA Films na huwag nang mag-shoot abroad.

Instead, dito na lang ga-win ang movie at ipakita ang kagandahan ng Pilipinas sa buong mundo.

Ang pinakamalaking location nila ay sa Coron, Palawan.

Sa late January pa lang sisimulang gawin na Ri-chard ang bago niyang teleserye na Mask Of Zorro. Kasi, concentrated muna siya sa Full Force Nature for one season. Isa pa, nag-hahanap ang GMA-7 ng bago niyang leading lady for Zorro.

Richard gets real: Action!





Richard gets real: Action!
By Bot Glorioso Updated December 01, 2008 12:00 AM



After playing a cyborg in the recently-concluded action-packed TV series Codename: Asero on GMA 7, Richard Gutierrez gets in the midst of real action and breathtaking adventure as host of Kapuso network’s latest show on Bilib Ka Ba Nights block titled Full Force Nature, to air Tuesdays starting tomorrow night.

The show needs no fully-choreographed stunts, heartbreaking dialogues and acting skills but a concern for the environment which the 24-year-old actor possesses as one of Greenpeace advocates since two years ago.

“I really got excited when this was offered to me because it will serve as an avenue to create awareness to the people about the problems or issues concerning the environment,” Richard says.

As Greenpeace advocate, what’s number one on his to-do list to help restore nature’s beauty?

“First is to inspire other people to be an advocate, too. I also plan to hold a celebrity tree planting soon in connection with Bench’s green campaign which I spearhead for the apparel brand. I am also proud to say that Bench donated trees for La Mesa dam,” he answers.

”I’d also like to create awareness among the youth so we will go to different schools, as one of my projects next year. Signos, by the way, is now out on DVD. Hopefully, it can be shown to schools because it is very informative,” Richard relates.

Richard Gutierrez concentrates muna sa environmental advocacy

After Codename: Asero, Richard Gutierrez is taking a very short break from making television serials. However, while on vacation from acting, the young actor will be busy hosting GMA-7's newest program on "Bilib Ka Ba Nights" block, Full Force Nature, which will premiere on December 2 after GMA Telebabad.

The program immediately appealed to the young actor when the network presented to him the idea of the show. Although its original version in the United States shows original video clips of unbelievable weather moments, the Philippine version changes it a bit by choosing Richard, an advocate of environment, as the host.

As a Greenpeace celebrity spokeperson, the 24-year-old actor will now have a wider venue to fulfill his role of spreading awareness about problems and issues concerning the environment. In between the video clips that will be shown, Richard will give simple but very helpful tips in saving mother earth.

The young actor said that Full Force Nature will definitely show the other side of Richard Gutierrez.

"I'm an active environmentalist and I wanna help also the group of Greenpeace and the other environmental groups. I think this is my calling, to create awareness for the people regarding global warming and other environmental problem," said Richard during the presscon of Full Force Nature last night, November 25.

He added, "Full Force Nature, ang kaibahan nito is you really feel the wrath of nature and mga hindi natin nae-experience dito, mga puwede ring mangyari sa atin dito, makikita mo sa TV kung ano talaga ang nararamdaman ng mga taon nakaka-experience no'n. So, 'yon pa lang, entertaining and exciting na for the audience. At the same time, it cuts to me giving ideas and pointers on how we can avoid these matters."

GREENPEACE ADVOCATE. The young Gutierrez said that it was really his idea to help groups that supports environmental causes such as GreenPeace.

"'Yon ang naging calling ko, e," he said. "I mean, for me, maraming different problems na nangyayari sa mundo—number one is hunger, number two is overpopulation, number three is global warming. For me, global warming ang napili ko dahil talagang ever since I was a kid I love nature. Siguro, I just had a calling for it. Siguro kanya-kanya tayong purpose dito sa mundo and siguro 'yon ang purpose ko."

As a celebrity spokesperson, Richard said that he helps the group with its non-violent moves in saving the environment. One example of this is creating informative videos that will reach a lot of people around the country, like his past documentary Signos.

Within the next few weeks, Richard will go to Boracay to shoot a video for the tourists who visit the place. Then, by next year, GMA-7 will be doing another documentary similar to Signos.

He reiterated, "Ang goal ko talaga is to create awareness sa youth, sa kabataan. So we're gonna go to different schools, that's one of my projects next year. Signos was something informative. Signos, by the way, is now out on DVD. Hopefully, schools can watch that."

Keep your eyes open for Richard's latest show Full Force Nature when it airs on December 2, 2008 only on GMA.

SIMPLE lang ang magiging Christmas celebration ng Gutierrez family.

SIMPLE lang ang magiging Christmas celebration ng Gutierrez family.

Ito ang itsinika ni Richard Gutierrez sa presscon ng bagong
infotainment show niyang Full Force Nature, na mapapanood tuwing
Martes, pagkatapos ng GMA Telebabad, simula December 2.

Ayon sa aktor, gaya ng dati’y sa bahay lang sila magpa-Pasko’t
magkakaroon ng simpleng party para sa mga kasambahay.

“Every year naman, we try to give back to our helpers,” ani Chard.

Doubly meaningful daw ang Christmas ng buong pamilya this year, dahil
as we all know, kararaos lang nila sa krisis pangkalusugan ng ama’t ina.

Still recovering ang siney ni Chard nang kumustahin ng press ang mommy
niyang si Annabelle Rama, na nag-undergo ng hysterectomy sa Asian
Hospital nu’ng isang linggo.

Ang daddy naman niyang si Eddie Gutierrez, 20 years younger daw ang
pakiramdam mula nang sumailalim sa angioplasty.

Dagdag pa ni Chard, “Ngayon, healthy living na kaming lahat. Lahat ng
pagkain sa bahay, healthy na, hindi katulad dati.

Sa Dec. 2, sabay-sabay na lilipad sina Chard, Tita Annabelle at Tito
Eddie pa-Amerika para manood ng laban ni Pacquiao.

Pero bago ’yon, nag-tape muna siya ng ilang episodes para sa Full
Force Nature, na magpapakita ng maiikling kuwento tungkol sa actual na
natural disasters.

Greenpeace advocate si Chard, kaya bagay na bagay sa kanya ang format
ng programa.

Bukod sa personal accounts, magpapakita rin sila ng real-life footages
at eyewitness stories ng mga nagdaang natural disaster, gaya ng bagyo,
lindol, atbp.

Meron ding trivia portion, eco-friendly tips at payo kung paano
makaliligtas sa mga ganitong sakuna.

Sa pilot episode, muling bibisitahin ni Chard ang mapanganib na ilog
sa San Miguel, Bulacan, kung saan kinunan ang una niyang primetime hit
na Mulawin.

Excited nga ang actor sa bago niyang assignment, dahil feeling daw
niya, pagpe-preserve ng nature ang isa sa mga calling niya.

Sey ni Chard, “Bata pa lang ako, mahilig na ako sa nature.”

‘Kasal’ kay KC, tinawanan ni Richard

‘Kasal’ kay KC, tinawanan ni Richard




DAHIL okey na ang kundisyon nina Annabelle Rama at Eddie Gutierrez, magiging mas espesyal daw ang selebrasyon nila ng Pasko ngayon.


Sabi nga ni Richard sa presscon ng Full Force Nature (simula na sa Dec. 02), panay healthy food na ang ihahanda nila, at may party rin sila para sa mga helpers nila.


“Sa family kasi, buong taon naman kaming nagbibigayan, kaya tuwing Pasko, we try to give back to our helpers, at may party kami sa kanila,” sabi ni Richard.


Si Richard nga ang sumagot sa lahat gastos sa operasyon nina Tita Annabelle at Tito Eddie.


“Wala `yon. Kaya nga ako nagtatrabaho, para tumulong sa family ko, lalo na sa mga ganitong sitwasyon.”


Anyway, natawa lang si Richard sa pangyayari, na habang nasa ospital ang mommy niya at inooperahan, napanaginipan nito na ikinasal siya kay KC Concepcion.


“Oo nga, eh! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!” tumatawang sabi ni Richard.

Sa pagtatapos ng 'Codename: Asero', balikan natin ang mga pinagdaanan ng cast at creative team ng show. Find out what you might have missed during the run of this action-packed series

Inabangan nating lahat ang mga eksena ng cast sa Dubai, at ang first time team up ni Richard Gutierrez at Heart Evangelista . Nadala tayo sa mga special effects ng big-budget series na ito, at ang mga kakilig-kilig na mga eksena ng ating mga bida. The show started its pilot week in Dubai, a move that caused quite a stir in the entertainment industry.

"[In Dubai] naging good friends kami ni Richard, tapos madami siyang mga advice na binigay sa akin," ayon kay Heart. This helped make the portrayal of their character to be more effective since they had to work with each other on several scenes.

Sa simula, sinundan nating lahat ang adventures ni Grecko Abesamis (Richard Gutierrez) mula Dubai hanggang siya ay bumalik sa Pilipinas, naging robot, na-in love kay Emily San Juan (Heart), bumaliktad sa mga kakampi at pinaglaban ang kanyang pag-ibig.

And throughout all this, Richard has played not just the lead role—naging parte rin siya ng creative team sa pag-conceptualize ng istorya at ng fight scenes.

"I always want to make it different every time, so I use any form of action, kahit na hand to hand [combat], minsan may guns, minsan we just use our environment. We have different choices, we don't limit ourselves." At kita naman natin ito sa mga eksenang lumabas sa show. Sabi rin ni Richard, nakatutulong ang pag-create ng fight sequences para mas mabuo ang character niya.

Ngayon sa pagtatapos ng Asero, ano pa nga ang mga dapat abangan? Maililigtas ba ni Grecko ang in distress na si Emily? Lalo na ngayo't hindi na siya nakararamdam ulit.

"Yung love story nila, pang-forever. Into the future, parang ganoon," teases Richard. Pero ibig sabihin ba nito ay makaliligtas si Emily? We'll see!

Sabi nga ni Direk Mark Reyes, dgpi, "Richard keeps on saying that Heart is the 'heart' of the show. You know, the drama is with the story of Heart, the action-adventure is with the story of Richard."

Pero hindi lang sina Richard at Heart ang may resolution. Dagdag ng ating bida, "Bawat character may closure na mangyayari, kaya kailangan abangan yun, aside from all the action sequences that we did, [and] kung paano [mangyayari doon sa war] ng Advocate vs. Empire."

Sa halo-halong genre ng show na ito, ipinatunayan na hindi lang sa story nakikita ang ganda ng show, kundi sa pagsasama rin ng mga artista nito.

RICHARD’S SHOW ENDS

RICHARD’S SHOW ENDS

RICHARD Gutierrez’s hard hitting action series, “Codename: Asero” is ending this week and he says its last few nights are guaranteed to excite all viewers as each episode is jampacked with slambang stunts and fight scenes never before scene on local TV. “Asero” is a cyborg, half man-half machine, and this is the first time we had such a hero in Philippine television. His enemies are from the camp of the mysterious Zeus (Richard Gomez.)

“The action-filled finale took us two straight days to shoot,” says Richard. “Kahit pagod na kami, sige pa rin just to make sure it’s going to be worth it for the viewers. Its be very tiring and taxing, pero proud ako dahil hindi kami mapapahiya sa audience as we offer first rate entertainment. Asero is one of the best and most difficult roles I’ve played dahil dual roles ako bale rito as Asero and also as Grecko Abesamis.”

He wants to thank all his co-stars in the show: Heart Evangelista, Richard Gomez, Carmina Villaroel, Janno Gibbs, Michael V, Francine Prieto, Bubbles Paraiso, Paolo Contis, Ehra Madrigal, Rhian Ramos, Chynna Ortaleza, Joko Diaz, Joanne Quintas, Sheree, Jenny Miller, Caridad Sanchez, Rainier Castillo, Marky Cielo, Ysa Villar, Martin de los Santos, Bobby Andrews and his brothers Ramon Christopher, Rocky and Elvis Gutierrez. “Lahat sila, nakatulong para sa ikagaganda ng show na talaga namang naging maganda ang rating during its entire run,” adds Richard. “I also want to thank our directors, Mark Reyes and Mike Tuviera, for allowing me to share my ideas with them, especially in staging and choreographing our action scenes. Pareho silang mahusay.”

In all fairness to Richard, he excels not only in the action scenes where he does his own stunts and gets to show his dexterity with guns and with the martial arts, but also in his dramatic scenes. After this, he’ll be playing the swashbuckling role of the legendary Zorro in his next series. He’s also starting the shooting of his new movie with KC Concepcion for GMA Films, titled “Save the Best for Last” written and directed by Joey Reyes, in which he’d be singing the theme song with KC. “But before anything else, sana huwag nilang kalimutan ang climactic conclusion ng ‘Asero’ this week and on its last day, November 14,” he adds. “I promise, hindi sila magsisisi.”

Richard Gutierrez begins training for 'Zorro'

Richard Gutierrez begins training for 'Zorro'
Article posted November 04, 2008

'Codename: Asero' ends on November 14th, to be replaced by 'Luna Mystika,' where Richard Gutierrez's 'Asero' leading lady Heart Evangelista plays the title role. Richard, on the other hand, has three more projects to accomplish before February next year. Here's a peek at what's to come. Text by Jillian Q. Gatcheco. Photos by Mitch S. Mauricio.

The last of Asero

Richard says people should watch out for the resolution of Asero's love story with Emily (Heart Evangelista). "Yung love story nila, pang-forever. Into the future, parang ganoon." Could this be related to the prosthetics we saw Heart wear during our last set visit? We'll see!

What can he say about his leading lady, especially since he was her first onscreen partner since she transferred to the Kapuso Network?

stars"She's unbelievably good and talented," Richard remarked with conviction. "Alam mo na talagang nag-mature siya, [also in] her craft."

He adds, "Wala na [rin] yung awkward stage namin. That was a good thing, that we got that out of the way and became good friends. And pag ka-eksena mo si Heart, talagang madadala ka sa kanya kasi magaling siya."

"Bawat character may closure na mangyayari, kaya kailangan abangan yun, aside from all the action sequences that we did, [and] kung paano [mangyayari doon sa] gera ng Advocate vs. Empire."

Richard admits that he had a difficult time portraying a robot. "It was actually hard for me, jumping from Asero [to the movie I was shooting]. Sa Asero, na-experience ko yung robot acting and siguro yung without emotions, which is also hard, kasi everyday, pag gising natin, may bago kang emotions—may bago kang nararamdaman, and once you come to the set, you're supposed to erase everything. You're supposed to not remember anything.

"And then I was doing that while I was [filming] a movie na sobra naman yung emotions, na kailangan, so it was tough for me to balance that." Richard is referring to first movie with KC Concepcion under Star Cinema, titled For the First Time.

Upcoming projects

"Well, right now, I'm preparing for something new again," Richard answered when asked about his upcoming projects.

He has a reality show based on an international franchise, which tackles various natural disasters across the world. "Mayroon din tips on what we can do as individuals to avoid these disasters and [how we can contribute] to nature."

As for his second movie with KC under GMA Films, Richard says he hasn't started filming yet. "We're still in the process of creating the storyline and discussing our characters." The movie is set to be released on Valentine's Day. It is also Richard's fifth V-day flick in a row!

From robotic to romantic

"Those two are my main projects which will be shown soon, but of course, for primetime, I'm preparing for something—I'm also training for another project," says Richard. This, of course, is Zorro, set to air in 2009.

stars"I started training for fencing, [and] I will start [horse back] riding soon. Fully booked lang yung riding school ngayon, kaya hindi pa ako nakakapag-start.

"Then I'll be doing an acting workshop with direk Peque Gallaga, because 1900s yung era na gagawin namin and we have to study how the Filipinos were back then, kung ano yung way of living natin, kung ano yung paniniwala [natin] noong 1900s [and] all of that."

Richard says that they're even going to invite a historian to brief the whole team on what actually happened at that point in Philippine history!

"It's gonna be something hardcore for all of us, and also very exciting, [because it'll be my] first time [to portray a] role in a period setting."

Has his leading lady been confirmed already?

"Wala pa."

Will it be a new face on primetime TV?

"Nandiyan na siya! Sa pali-paligid!" Richard answers with a laugh.

Richard, quite to walk out on GMA event!



President Gloria Arroyo spent two hours in the inauguration of GMA's new Annex Studios last Friday.

PGMA and GMA President Filipe Gozon and other executive and guest did the ribbon cutting during the event.

Senators Mar Roxas, Bong Revilla at Miriam Defensor Santiago, QC Ma­yor Sonny Belmonte and Vice Mayor Herbert Bautista were also present.

After dinner, they went directly to Studio 4 including PGMA and watch the Musical Special.

Richard Gutierrez was assigned to share his piece regarding the entire concept of the show that night. He has experienced fun, anger, fantasy, pain, laughter.

Romance, power and passion is the concept of each production number.

While delivering his piece that night, he was blocked by the cameraman unintentionally. But surprisingly, he shows no irrition bout what happened. Some speculate though that he walked out from that eventBut towards the end of the show, he returned together with Iza Calzado and ended the spiels.



Richard Gutierrez showed the grace under pressure



Richard Gutierrez showed the grace under pressure in his segment. Richard memorized his piece but he still put a teleprompter in a studio.

There's only one word that he missed and when he take a look at the teleprompter, he was coincidentally blocked by his cameraman.

If any other artist had experienced it, they might have been already panic, but not Richard. He remained calm. He was just smiling while thinking what he'd say next. Visitors didn't even noticed what happened. Richard remained his composure.

If that upset Richard after his segment, there's nothing to feel sad because these normally occur on a live show.

Richard Gutierrez will no longer be paired with Marian?!

Whatever

What will happen now to Captain Barbell Meets Darna?!

The latest we heard is that Richard Gutierrez will be doing "The Mask Of Zorro" after Codename: Asero

Seems like this will be set aside again, especially they haven't found someone who could fit the role Darna.

We seriously doubt if Marian Rivera will play the role that that too identified with Angel Locsin.

Anyway, we've hear that Marian want to take a break after Dyesebel.

And also, it seems like its quite impossible for Richard and Marian to be paired up again right now, specially that Richard Gutierrez will be doing a Valentine Movie with KC Concepcion next year.


Speaking of Richard, who's no doubt in-loved with KC.

Seem the feeling is mutual,especially they've got the chance to get closer when they were in Europe for 10 days.

RICHARD ENDORSES TOOTHPASTE

RICHARD ENDORSES TOOTHPASTE
Mario E. Bautista
People's Journal



RICHARD Gutierrez was supposed to be launched as endorser of Unique Toothpaste last Saturday but he extended his European trip with KC and got to return home only last Sunday so his launching was moved to Tuesday. His TV commercial for Unique is really impressive, giving importance to his being today’s most agile young action star as seen in his hit TV show, “Codename: Asero.” It shows him personifying Unique and fighting against several opponents who represent tooth decay. “I’m thankful to Unique for giving me the chance to showcase my capabilities as an action star in a commercial,” he says. “And for allowing me to do my own stunts and choreograph the action sequences.”

And why was Richard chosen as their first celeb endorser of Unique after such a long time? “Because he’s handsome, talented, hardworking, wholesome, has a good image and is a good role model to our youth,” says ACS Manufacturing president, Alonso Supetran. “Several actors were presented to us but Richard is our only choice. He’s perfect for the concept of the commercial as he reflects Unique’s values. Mahusay ang Unique at mahusay rin siya. Sa ngayon, we only get 3% of the toothpaste market. But with Richard as our spokesman, dapat, maging number one na kami even against the multinational brands.”

“I’m honored to be the endorser of Unique,” says Richard. “I’m happy and proud to be endorsing a product that’s local and more reasonably priced but has high quality like other brands.”

And how is his trip to Europe with KC Concepcion? “It went very well. It gave me time to unwind and refresh myself after much hard work with the movies, TV show and endorsements that I do. I now feel much energized. KC, my brother Raymond and I went to visit Budapest and Paris after the movie premiere in Vienna.”

He’s all set to start his new movie with KC for GMA Films to be released on Valentine’s Day. “It’ll be lighter this time, more of comedy than drama. And this time, our rapport will be even better as we’ve gotten to know each other even better while we were traveling together in various countries.”

Richard is also glad that “Asero” continues to rate very high. This week, Ibsen (Richard Gomez) tells Asero that he’d regret his decision to leave the Empire Agency. Asero has another encounter with the destroyer robot who wrecks his car. Emily (Heart Evangelista) and her Lola Bertita (Caridad Sanchez) witness how Asero fights against the enemy soldiers using an iron hand. Reporters, cops and kibitzers flock to the area where the fighting occurs and it’s also shown on TV so everyone now knows that Asero is a cyborg. Later, Mr. P helps Asero and reformats him to make him an event better agent of the Advocate Agency who’d use him for good and not for evil purposes like what Empire did to him. It will also be revealed that there are two Ibsens and one of them is so weak while tied on a wheelchair.

RICHARD, OBVIOUSLY INLOVE WITH KC

Richard Gutierrez's Europe sojourn with KC Concepcion: adventure and bonding

"Whenever I'm on vacation, I feel re-energized. I feel refreshed [and] it's always good to relax and unwind," said Richard when he was cornered by the entertainment Reporters after the press conference prepared by Unique toothpaste last night, October 7, and the Mandarin Oriental Suites, Gateway Mall in Cubao, Quezon City.



The event formally introduced as Richard Unique's celebrity endorser, which also witnessed the premiere of the young actor's television commercial for the brand mentioned.



It was not just an ordinary out-of-the-country trip for the young actor as he was accompanied by twin brother Raymond, and yes, KC Concepcion!

"We are excited and all of a sudden, they go [KC] in the airport and actually make him a way to join the trip," revealed Richard. "So, we're all surprised. All of us were surprised but that only mean one thing, that he won't fail his fans, our fans in Austria."

Although the trip was part of Star Cinema's effort to promote For the First Time overseas, a string of problems turned out to be a good thing for the entire party.



As it turned out, Richard, Raymond, KC and made the most of the rare opportunity by deciding to embark on a quick vacation just to unwind.


"Well, it was all our decision to extend. But prior to that decision, there were some complications with the flights, so that was really the main reason why we need to extend our trip. We have to cancel some schedules' then there was the schedule complications. "Richard related.

Lovers IN PARIS? Aside from Austria, the Trio included Hungary and France in their ITINERARY. Understandably, France stood out as the most notable among the places they had visited.



"Paris is beautiful. The city of Romance!" gushed Richard. "There were friends I meet you by KC in Paris and since it's fashion week, there also other designers that also shown Pinoy' elegance in Paris. So we were able to meet up with some Filipino designers who were there and it was a good trip for us. "

The break allowed Richard and KC to spend quality time together, raising the public's curiosity even more about their real status.



Confessed Richard: "Of course, actually we're bonding with KC in Europe. Not sure, once you travel with a person, actually more likely you'd be able to know them well. And it was really fun, really who we enjoy, it was an adventure. I and KC, we always go for the adventure and I say that Euro trip was really a good adventure for us. "

Richard refused to state directly the real score between him and the daughter of Megastar Sharon Cuneta and former matinee idol Gabby Concepcion.



"It does not matter 'yong title, e. Important' yong organization," he smiled sheepishly.



But he is presently in love?



"Do I look [like] it?" he asked meaningfully back, " 'Yon, you decide."



Even when probed further, Richard never let up playing COY.



"We ni KC, you know, what you see is what you get just that ... 'yong welcome to see only' when we together."

KC, Richard back in RP after Vienna screenings of 'For the First Time', Saturday October 5, 2008 Philippines

Lead stars KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez of Star Cinema’s "For the First Time" arrived in the country early Sunday from Europe after the successful screenings of their film in Vienna, Austria.

Along with Gutierrez’s twin brother, Raymond, KC and Richard arrived at 4:50 a.m. in Manila from Paris, France. They stayed in Paris after the film’s screenings at Cineplexx Donauplex in Vienna.

They said their stay in Paris and Vienna was very enjoyable and memorable for them, especially after a big number of Filipinos in Vienna supported their film. The two stars thanked their fans for watching the movie, which is one of Star Cinema's offerings for its 15th anniversary.

They also invited their fans to buy the DVD of "For the First Time."

Directed by well-acclaimed director Ms. Joyce Bernal, the premiere of "For the First Time" was said to be the biggest for any Filipino movie shown in Austria.

Reports said fans were impressed by KC’s acting prowess given that it’s her first full-length movie and that most of the scenes were shot outside of the country.

"For the First Time" is KC's very first take on the movie industry while it is Richard’s first project with ABS-CBN's movie outfit Star Cinema.

Aside from their respective projects, KC and Richard are again set to shoot a Valentine movie next year under GMA films.

Marian Rivera and Richard Gutierrez for Rosalinda Philippine Edition?

Marian Rivera and Richard Gutierrez for Rosalinda Philippine Edition?




But of course, GMA will have second thoughts with this team-up. Marian Rivera is their no. 1 primetime ratings magnet while Richard Gutierrez is their no. 2. If they will team them up in one tv series, it will be a sure-fire no. 1 hit but the 2nd to 4th position in the ratings game will be put to jeopardy.

Currently, the no. 1 to no. 4 position in Mega Manila ratings are occupied by GMA. From time to time, some ABS-CBN shows were able to penetrate these positions in Mega Manila like The Singing Bee and Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara, but were not able to maintain the ranking. So if GMA will join the two stalwarts in one show, one position in the ranking will be in danger.

Maybe, this is the time for Dingdong Dantes to shine even more. Perhaps, a new show for him but this time, he’s no longer under the shadow of Marian Rivera. And of course, after Dyesebel and Marimar, people are now looking forward for Marian and Dingdong to have a different love team.

I for one would like to see Richard and Marian together in a tv series. Their team up in BFGF was magical! Jologs girl meets rich and spoiled guy. And the characters in Rosalinda is somewhat similar to these kind of roles. Hope GMA will grant the fans’ request.

Richard Guttierez is Zorro on GMA Telebabad

Richard Guttierez is Zorro on GMA Telebabad


GMA-7 has bought the rights to televised the local version of Zorro, the fictional Mexican character written by Johnston McCulley in 1919.

According to PEP, Richard Gutierrez was chosen by GMA-7 management to play the lead role and is now attending fencing lessons. This is going to be Richard’s 7th tv series on GMA after Mulawin, Sugo, Captain Barbell, Lupin, Kamandag, and Codename: Asero.

Richard’s leading lady in Asero, Heart Evangelista, was earlier reported to star in the fantaserye Luna Mystica opposite Mark Anthony Fernandez. So the role for Richard’s leading lady in the Philippine version of Zorro is still up for grabs.

Zorro is perhaps best known for the movie of the same name starring Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta Jones. But the very first movie about the Mexican fictional character was “The Mask of Zorro” in 1920.

On television, Walt Disney came up with Zorro the tv series and it ran from 1957 to 1959. And in 2007, it became a “telenovela” courtesy of Sony TV and Telemundo. It’s entitled Zorro: La Espada Y La Rosa starring the Peruvian actor Christian Meier.

Richard-KC, optimized their vacation

Richard Gutierrez and Raymund Gutierrez took time and enjoy their time and vacation in Paris, France with KC Concepcion.

They extended the trip there until Saturday. 5:00 AM Sunday as they arrived in the Philippines.

Previously Raymond is the only one who must extend, but later on KC and Richard decided to extend their vacation too in Paris. Here is the text to me by Raymond on Wednesday night with, "KC and Chard are supposed to leave today but they both decided to extend ...

"KC has been our guide, translator and concierge. Even her Parisian friends are very helpful and nice. One of her close friends here is the cousin of Bubbles and Paolo (Paraiso).

"Yesterday she (KC) took us to her favorite place for breakfast, a cafe called Le Durée. "Also yesterday, while shopping, we bumped into some Filipinos we know from Dublin. What a small world really.

"Today we are fixing our tickets and hotel rooms for extension. We also plan to visit the Louvre museum where The Da Vinci Code was filmed and the museum that houses the mona Lisa. "


Last night was a text to us again by Raymond, "Their are also lots of Pinoy here in Paris. When we went to the bank, the lady who helped us was Pinay. "When we went to the Louvre museum, we also met so many Filipinos, some from Ireland, Davao and Manila. "At least they do not GMA Pinoy TV here, but they still know me as Chard and updated them on the internet. "Tonight we're taking a river cruise around Paris. "Stresses us a little because we labored to book a flight."

Richard's transition

Richard's transition
Article posted September 30, 2008


It's heartwarming to browse through Richard Gutierrez's old pictures and to realize how much he has grown before the public's eyes. From a chubby twin to a scrawny teen, nobody expected that he'd be one of the country's hottest matinee idols within the span of four years. It all started with "Mulawin," of course, and Richard recognizes that. He says he will be forever thankful for that winged creature that literally made his career take flight. Text by Jillian Q. Gatcheco, with an interview by Erick Mataverde. Photos by the iGMA Web Team.

A look back

Within four years starting with Mulawin (2004), Richard has portrayed a myriad of characters, both real and imagined. He delved into martial arts in Sugo (2005), saved the world as the much-celebrated Captain Barbell (2006), made the ladies swoon in the Pinoy remake of Lupin (2007), and captivated audiences with his Kamandag (2007).

Now he is a cyborg in Codename: Asero, torn between his allegiance to his family and to the crime-fighting organization called "Advocate."

If his capacity as a character actor has been tried and tested on TV, Richard's big-screen flicks showcase another side of his acting prowess. From "tweetums" roles in Let the Love Begin (2005), complex characters such as Daniel in The Promise (2007) and a successful comedic attempt in My Best Friend's Girlfriend (2008), Richard has proven time and again that he’s not just a pretty boy.

Richard Gutierrez, fight director

He keeps on pushing his limits by trying something new for every project he does. For Asero, he took his acting skills up a notch by getting involved in the fight choreography of the show.

"I used to like action films when I was a kid, so I would have ideas in my mind. So now, habang ginagawa namin yung mga eksena, bumabalik sa akin yung mga eksenang [napanood ko na]. Ginagamit ko na lang imagination ko," Richard says, explaining where he gets inspiration for his fight choreography.

Doesn't it complicate acting, when you're thinking of too many things at the same time?

"It complements pa; it helps pa," he answers. "You know where the scene is going, and you know your actions, and by that, malalabas mo rin yung acting mo. It's hard physically, pero for me, it helps [to] bring out the character."

Richard makes it a point to explore different techniques in his fight direction. "I always want to make it different every time, so I use any form of action, kahit na hand to hand [combat], minsan may guns, minsan we just use our environment. We have different choices, we don’t limit ourselves."

He shares one dream scene that he would like to fulfill while he's in Asero. "Actually, marami pa, pero isa sa mga simple fights na gusto ko is using a steady camera, and no edit point. So we're still gonna work on that."

He's been lucky that he never suffered major injuries in his action scenes, although minor accidents have occurred once in a while. "[Nagkakaroon ako ng] mga paso, pero nangyayari naman yun, e. Napaso na rin ako, pero minor injuries lang, and it’s part of it."

Another mark

With projects coming in nonstop for the 24-year old, he expresses that he looks forward to a project that will "leave a mark again."

"Kasi for me, Mulawin ang nagsimula ng lahat, then after that, ginawa ko yung mga roles na gusto kong gawin. Ngayon, parang nagampanan ko na halos lahat ng roles na gusto kong gawin, pero mayroon pa namang naiiwan.

"I'm still looking for that one project na talagang malapit sa akin. After my second movie with KC (Concepcion), I wanna do something different and experiment on a new character or new role na hindi pa nakikita ng tao sa akin."

He is referring to his next project under GMA Films tentatively titled When I Met You, and it will be released in time for Valentine's 2009—Richard’s fourth V-day movie streak.

Richard stresses, however, that although he is still searching for the project that will be at par with his Mulawin break, he makes it a point to enjoy everything that's given to him. "Lahat naman ng ginagawa ko, dapat masaya. Pag hindi ka na masaya, wag mo na gawin."

Rumor has it that after Asero, he is set to tape Zorro, although we'll have to wait for the official word on that. In the meantime, he says he is excited for When I met You because it'll be his second team-up with the Megastar’s daughter; their first was Star Cinema's For the First Time. "I don't want to say it's gonna be better, but I think it will be better for the audience, kasi kami ni KC, we're gonna offer something new."

A Cause to Run

A Cause to Run
Article posted September 23, 2008

Being one of the most sought-after actors in the industry today would definitely mean a tight schedule. However, for one Richard Gutierrez, it also means taking the time out to be a role model for the youth in the country. Text by Erick Mataverde. Photos by Mitch S. Mauricio.


Richard did not have any qualms at all gracing the Run for Peace fun run last September 20, 2008 at the Quirino Grandstand in Pasay City. This just made the meaningful event more significant for the thrust of the government to promote peace in the country.

"We're very thankfu to him," says Undersecretary Danilo Consomido of the Office of External Affairs in Malacañang when Richard accepted their invitation to attend the said event.

Likewise, Gabby Concepcion was also present to give his support, and realized the importance of this worthy cause: "It would be nice to make a difference that's why I am here. Of course it's hard if you only exist. You want to live, right? And I know I have a reason for being here eh. It's nice to spread the word, right?"

Richard was requested to give an inspirational message to the participants and guests during that day, and he was open as to what he wanted for all and what is needed to attain it: "We all dreamt to have peace and unity in our country. Each of us has their own role to achieve this dream as an epitome of youth.
"Time to get up and we coordinate with each Filipino to achieve the peace. As Ghandhi once said: 'Be the difference that you want to see in this world.' And that's what I am doing now. For the development the Philippines and development of Mindanao is our gain. "

Dayze Tagimoro reports that she is leaving Empire in favor of Advocate, but is still within Empire’s premises to aid Agent Phoenix. The agent says that Phoenix approached her to go against their current employers after he has regained his memories—and after an altercation with one of the bosses.

Prior to Phoenix’s return, Dayze recounts that Claire Morales was caught in her laboratory. But before the girl was dragged away, she told Dayze to warn Asero (Phoenix) that he must beware of the people in Empire. She does not know what has become of the teen, but has heard news that she was sent by her father to another country.

Will she return, though, when she learns that Apollo has been killed by the Empire’s liaison to international affairs, Jupiter?

In Advocate, our mole reports that things look gloomy. After the excitement of Phoenix’s return to Advocate has died down, things have returned to normal—except, our mole reports, when it comes to the elusive Lady Q.

Lady Q, Rock Star, and Beat Box were the ones who spearheaded the campaign to bring down Empire ringleader Zeus. Zeus remains alive, and Lady Q has taken to isolating herself. Our mole has been hearing that Lady Q might have had relations with Zeus without knowing who he was.

Meanwhile, our agent aside to keep tabs on Emily San Juan has returned to office. The San Juan residence was burned down, he reports, by men from Empire. According to our mole, he tried to follow the San Juan’s to the Aviejo residence, but security is tighter in Mr. Aviejo’s house.

Actors Gabby Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez were both offered a new role—to become the country's ambassadors for peace.

Gabby was amenable to the idea of being the country's peace ambassador. Likewise, Richard stated his desire to end the armed conflicts in the country so we can move forward.

Richard and Dindong Rivalry?!




Desyebel will end on October 10. And with full radiance and she's very proud to say that theyre always on the top of the rating game.

Marian Rivera said, that she's not yet certain what will be her next project after dyesebel. Speculations said that she will be doing another remake from a Mexican drama Rosalinda drama wherein Dingdong will still be her leading man.

Some also says that her next project will be with Richard Gutierrez, they'll be doing Captain Barbell Meets Darna.

Is there a rivalry between the two actors?!

Anyway, before anything else Marian is planning to rest and take some time off from work. She's also planning to visit her father and several relatives in Spain.

Richard Gutierrez does not want to label relationship with KC Concepcion

Looking forward to Richard Gutierrez in the second movie they ni KC Concepcion after Time For The Fist, now that the actress is back again in the Philippines. But before the movie in GMA Films, Richard excited on his first with KC in Vienna, Austria, for a special screening of For the First Time.

We're all excited in our trip in Vienna because she [KC] was the only one who made it through in LA and San Francisco screening. I was not able to go there due to my hectic work schedule here in Manila. But now, we're looking forward to our trip in Vienna together, "beginning with Richard her to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) the inauguration of Flawless Moments in Greenhills, San Juan City, on September 14.

Are they going to extend their stay in Vienna?

"You know what, I really do hope we could extend our stay there coz there are really a few places that we wanted to visit. But we're going to enjoy the moment that we have in Vienna and we ' re gonna have the most out of it. And we're gonna make sure that the Filipinos will have a good time, and we're gonna have a good time. "

What's the real score between him and now KC?



"Well, now, like what we always say, we too busy with work but we still find time to see each other," says Richard. "We still find time to meet up and talk. But now our schedules are really, really bad, and we do not want to rush things. It's better that we take it step by step. And if any be the final decision that happens , E, you also the first else. "


What Is the status of their KC? Are they dating exclusively, or a mutual understanding that?

"we do not want to put a title to it, you know? If whatever we have, just 'when we together, we just enjoy each moment. Just don't want to label it right now."


There were news that Piolo Pascual wanted to be paired with KC Concepcion. What can you say Richard?

"Well, I'm sure there's a lot of guys who want to work with KC, or who would want to work with KC in the future. She's fun to work with, e, and I'm sure all the guys who want to work. It's okay with me. I think it's also good for KC to be working with other leading men, so she will also grow as an artist. "

KC Concepcion returned from the premiere nights of “For the First Time” in the U.S. last Saturday. And you know the first thing she did? She had dinner with Richard Gutierrez at Bonifacio High Street in The Fort. Those who saw them say it’s apparent that they missed each other so much, which is not surprising since they’ve been together constantly for the past several weeks.

Next Thursday, September 25, they will have another chance to travel together for the premiere of their movie in Vienna, Austria. They will be traveling around Europe for a week before returning to Manila. They’re scheduled to start shooting their Valentine movie with GMA FIlms by the end of November, to be written and directed by Joey Reyes who’s also shooting “Magkaibigan” and “One Night Only” for the Metro Manila Filmfest. There are talks that they would also shoot their second movie partly abroad.

So, which famous city abroad will be their choice? Is it true they’ll shoot it in Paris where KC studied for four years? “Sa akin, kahit saan pa i-shoot ‘yan, okay lang,” says Richard. “The more important thing is that KC and I will be together again.”

Richard Gutierrez feels no pressure about his second movie with KC Concepcion

Richard Gutierrez is scheduled to go to Vienna, Austria on the third week of September with KC Concepcion to attend the premiere night of their first movie together, For the First Time, which is already on its third week here in the country.



Although they're already finished doing their first movie together, Richard says that he and KC are still in constant communication.



"We communicate just like any other normal person with friends, we communicate. Nagko-Almost everyday we communicate," said the 24-year-old actor during the inauguration of Flawless Moments in Greenhills, San Juan City on September 14.



The Codename: Asero star said being updated with each other is still very important since they will do a movie with GMA Films. "Now, there we work in progress as being 'yong script, being' yong location. We always communicate about our next movie and our trip to Vienna," said Richard.



Talking about their second movie, do they feel any pressure in surpassing the success of their first movie For the First Time with Star Cinema?



Richard replied, "Well, I think, that's the main idea in doing that[the movie] in Star [Cinema] and the GMA Films is to not have a rivalry or to compare one another. I think , GMA Films will go on a different direction there for the movie does not really compare him to. And with its own stand 'yong the Star Cinema and its own stand' yong on GMA Films. But both films, will be given much effort and attention to. "



NO PERSONAL issues with Dingdong. During the interview, Startalk reporter Gorgy Rula told that Richard-Dingdong Dantes who is constantly being pitted against him-watched For the First Time. Upon hearing this, Richard recalled that his director in the movie, Bb. Joyce Bernal, mentioned that she would tell Dingdong to watch the film. Joyce is Dingdong's director in Dyesebel.



"Well, first watched teh movie, after the premiere night, Direk Joyce said that he should ask Dingdong and Marian [Rivera] to watch their movie. I want to thank him also for watching. He actually texted me and he said that he liked 'yong movie, so I'm thankful, "Richard related.



This just shows that Richard and Dingdong really do not have personal issues with each other. In fact, Richard he assured the media, "Dingdong and I were okey, no problem in turn one another. course 'rivalry that's been created by the media, those were just rumors. But I and Dong, We don't have personal rivalry with one another. "

Can KC top herself?

I’m truly happy for the success of KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez’s movie, For the First Time. I know the two worked extremely hard to do a movie that they can be proud of and one that people would actually watch. There were many factors, not their doing but proved to be intense pressure points for the two; it was almost impossible for the two to star in a movie project together as both belong to two fiercely competitive networks. But it happened, so it could not not work. A mild hit would be a flop, after all it was a dream tandem.

This was KC’s first movie. She is the Megastar daughter. Upon conception she was a certified star. How could the movie not be a huge hit?

Richard is one of the country’s hottest young leading men. He has had a string of hits to his name. How can the movie not break records?

It was scary considering that they were following a huge box-office hit in A Very Special Love, a feel-good movie starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo. They had to outgross A Very Special Love.

The pressure was horrible. Both KC and Richard were nervous, even anxious. Nobody knew what was going to happen. Expectations were insanely high. How can royalties fail? And failure here was anything less than a gigantic hit. Star Cinema did everything it could to produce a movie worth watching and promoted the movie like there was no other.



For the First Time has on its team Bb. Joyce Bernal, a certified hitmaker, brilliant DOP Shayne Sarte, a formidable creative and production staff and actors that lent support to KC and Richard.

The premiere night had the first indication that this was a huge box-office hit. The Megastar herself was proud of her daughter’s work. The good Sen. Francis Pangilinan was happy with the movie. Fans were at Megamall Cinema 9 and 10 as early as 2 p.m. There was a mob at the premiere night of For the First Time. But skeptics still said that it was a premiere night so naturally there was a sea of people, curious to see KC, Richard and all the other stars. Would this translate to box-office success? Of course there were no clear answers yet.

Most people who had anything to do with the movie were still nervous. Anything could still happen. What if a big storm hits Manila? Or even a coup d’etat? What if people turn out to be uninterested? The night of the 28th of August until theaters opened on the 29th must have been one of the longest nights in Richard and KC’s life.

I saw the Megastar invite everyone to support her daughter’s movie. I started to get text messages from Annabelle Rama and Ruffa Gutierrez reminding friends that the movie was opening on the 29th. KC and Richard got the unequivocal support of their families and friends.

In the afternoon of Aug. 29, I called Roxy Liquigan, promo director of Star Cinema and supervising producer of The Buzz without letting Roxy realize my jitters. I casually asked how the movie was doing in the first few hours of its first day. “It’s a huge, huge hit!” Roxy declared. “Thank you,” I muttered — catching my breath — as if I were KC.

HEART DOES TORRID KISSING SCENE WITH RICHARD

HEART DOES TORRID KISSING SCENE WITH RICHARD
People's Journal
Bong De Leon




HEARD that Heart Evangelista could hardly believe she did the sizzling kissing scenes in “Codename: Asero” with the new Golden Boy of Philippine movies, Richard Gutierrez.

What’s good about having paired with Richard, his leading ladies never feel uncomfortable. He is never branded as a bold actor as he looks gentle, maybe even if he takes off his clothes.

Meanwhile, people are now looking forward to the next Richard-KC Concepcion starrer which will happen this time under GMA Films. Their “For The First Time” under Star Cinema is a certified hit, chalking up more than P100 million in just 3 weeks of showing.

Since they’re now very much comfortable with each other, fans are expecting to see more daring scenes in their next outing together. Maybe, more torrid than what Richard did with Heart in “Codename: Asero.”

"Wow, thank You!" Richard exclaimed after hearing the news. Then, he explained that the production team of steel does not merely rely on the ratings when it comes to improving their show.



"For me, the team really concentrated tempering the cosmetics of steel. Sometimes we no longer too ... Of course the ratings, but we do not base it there, we base it on quality," said Richard.



To prove that he is serious in doing steel, Richard said that he always makes sure that he sees the final output of their team's hard work. This is also to prove to the audience that his portrayal of the main characters steel does not stop after the taping.



He even narrated one occasion when he missed watching steel. "I had one week that I wasn't able to watch Asero coz of my work schedule. Had to let it recorded on DVD because anywhere I go, always the full force of the people,' a nice welcome episode last night, the happening is just so great'.I'm very proud of steel now. We've been working very hard [for this] . "



Richard also said that he is glad that they were able to maintain the excitement that they started in their pilot episode. "I'm proud we're able to sustain the good quality," he said. "The beauty start of Asero and we were able to sustain it. For me, it's just very good."



He added, "It's so much fun for me now doing Asero. After the movie [For the First Time], as there was a time every day, movie-movie-steel-steel, sometimes really exhausted me. But I arriving in steel, inspired that inspired me when we conducted the action sequences. Coz of Direk Mark [Reyes], he allows me to share my visions of how to do the scenes. Though what I wakeful, really missing . "



Codename: Asero is scheduled to run until November this year, according to Richard. After this, he expects to do a more exciting project, which he does not want to disclose yet.



The 24-year-old actor just told the media, "Oh yeah, I'm so excited for the next one! There are two projects in learning and we discuss later with GMA what happens . But both projects that are line-up for me really very exciting. "



Successful movies. Aside from Asero, Richard is also happy about his first movie with KC Concepcion titled For the First Time. He even reported that its premiere nights abroad, particularly in Los Angeles and San Francisco, were as successful as the premiere night they had here in Manila.



Unfortunately, it was only KC who witnessed these events since he has previous engagements left here in Manila. Richard related, "I'm jealous of her as she was there in San Francisco and then in LA 'Then she called me while she was there on premiere night.



"Too successful 'yong night premiere in Los Angeles, the many Filipinos. Even my titas and their friends flew into LA just to watch [the movie]. Some Filipinos from Las Vegas, who drive to LA to see the premiere night . You know, I missed out, but I'm very happy for KC that she was able to experience that. "



With his team-up with KC, Richard would like to express his gratitude towards the young actress. "I want to thank her," he said. "The amount he shinare to the public, he opened himself to her public.



"I'm very proud of her also. I'm very proud of her that she was strong and she has done 'those responsibilities for her,' First thing it and she did so well as an actress, I'm very proud of her. "



On September 25, Richard is scheduled to go to Vienna, Austria with KC for the premiere of For the First Time. Then, by December, these two young Actors will start filming their second movie, this time with GMA-7, which is slated for the'09 Valentine's week.



Before the interview ended, Richard clarified that he will not transfer to ABS-CBN.



"Did you, have been perhaps to confuse people since I was guesting in ABS-CBN constantly to promote the movie. I think people were just confused and they were not used to seeing me in ABS-CBN so they got confused. But the real thing is that was the agreement between GMA 7 and ABS-CBN that when I do my movie with Star [Cinema], I will be able to promote ... It was an agreement, it was an agreement. "



For their movie with GMA-7, Richard also expects a full support from ABS-CBN. "I think ABS-CBN will do their part. I'm sure they will help us also. That's good, there was a connection' of both networks. I hope it continues like that," said Richard.

Richard, KC in Vienna

WE asked how Richard Gutierrez KC Concepcion is doing these days? "She's still in the U.S. to attend the premiere nights of 'For the First Time' (in Los Angeles and San Francisco), "he says. "But we keep in touch. I envy her coz she called me up during the premiere night in LA and excited because she meet a lot of people. People coming from various places like Las Vegas and San Diego, they watch the premiere. I'm so happy for KC because she witnessed the success of our movie abroad. But we'll be together at the premiere in Vienna. We're leaving on September 25 and we'll be gone for one week. "

His rivalry with Dingdong Dantes will surely heat up further now that he's been tapped by brandy emperor to be their endorser for their solo P100 million to Business Success campaign, what with Dingdong endorsing a competing brand. What can he say about this?

"Healthy competition between Dingdong and I just so okay because we remain good friends," he says. "Just me, a long time endorser of the emperor and I was included here, my Dad and my brothers. Another, the real success is in the emperor. "

Business Success in the campaign is truly laudable in that it encourages entrepreneurship. All you have to do is look inside your emperor bottle cap to find out if you won. There will be 50 winners of P250, 000 each to start a business but there are also winners of P10, 000 to P100, 000. Each big winner will be encouraged to join a seminar on how to start their own business. "There'll also be an emperor Hotline where people setting up their own business can call and make consultations," says Richard. "Emperor will help them every step of the way and monitor how their business is going."

In his case, given the chance, what kind of business he would put up? "I'd like to have an Internet cafe, which is very timely in this Era of information technology. Many people in the province to unprecedented access to the Internet and it'd help them if they accessed Internet cafe. "

Does he really drink brandy emperor? "I do, with my family, if we're all free on Sundays and when there's a celebration, but I mix it with pineapple juice."

Richard is rejoicing because his "Codename: Asero" continues to enjoy high ratings. He and leading lady Heart Evangelista just did their first hot love scene together. This was shot in a beach resort in Bataan and the place is so idyllic and beautiful. "It is the setting in Hawaii because of beauty," he says. "Inabot of several takes because we all want the love scene to be perfect. The love scene will be seen tonight, Thursday, so do not miss it. "

September 8 to 12, 2008: Operation Recollection

September 8 to 12, 2008: Operation Recollection
Article posted September 5, 2008

Asero wants to be who he was before: to be Grecko Abesamis again. And he finally gets his wish-just not in the way that he expected.

Ms. Emily San Juan is proving to be the Achilles' heel of Empire's Project Asero. As reported by our numerous spies, the woman single-handedly destroyed the programming within the cyborg's brain and restored Grecko Abesamis's memories-with a little help from a conveniently placed generator.

Of course, Ms. San Juan is hardly to take the full credit to this oversight in the Project Asero plan. Dayze reports that no one has foreseen Asero regaining Grecko's memories; they all believed previously that every little bit of Grecko has already died. Currently, her orders from Zeus are to isolate the problem with Asero's wireframes and to hide it from the other Empire bosses. Plus, she also had to give Zeus a gadget that would enable him to stop Grecko from acting on his own.

Currently, no one knows the status of Ms. San Juan-not since the incident at the hospital where deceased members of the Black Hand terrorist chapter was picked up by the police. But it is found out, by one of our moles, that she is now being sought by a man named Dave Aviejo.

An Advocate mole reports that Lady Q seems to have taken the attack against Asero personally, and she is ordering her top agents-including Rookie Beat Box-to investigate what happened at the hospital. And Rock Star has found out about Project Asero, and our mole assumes that he has already told Lady Q of his suspicions.

Meanwhile, Empire remains oblivious to what is currently going on with Asero. According to our spy, Empire is focusing on their business in illegal arms trading.

And an incident at a restaurant was tagged by one of our electronic blotters; an incident that involved Grecko's parents and a woman we believe may be Lady Q.
