My Oes Tsetnoc is Sinking

My oes tsetnoc entry is sinking in the SERPs and I am afraid it could not return to the top ten before the contest ends on December 15, 2009. But nevertheless, I am still making some optimizations and hope it can make a little push to my entry.

The "sinking" that happened to my entry is due to the penalty it received from the big G. I resorted to blog commenting lately and due to the links that poured in an instant, Google made a spell and struck its magic wand to my site and voila - my site jumped to page 5!

Anyway, this is a good lesson for a beginner like me in SEO. I am not going to commit same mistake next time.

Edu Manzano is Running For Vice President

Actor Edu Manzano is running for the vice presidency under the administration ticket. He was chosen by no other than Lakas-Kampi presidential candidate Gibo Teodoro.

the announcement was made today by Department of Interior and Local Government secretary Ronnie Puno, who was the original Vice presidential bet of the party but begged off just recently, in a press conference in Shangrila-Makati.

"The person who has accepted the challenge of standing beside Secretary Teodoro in the quest to become the next president of the Republic of the Philippines and the next vice-president of the Republic of the Philippines, no other than former OMB chairman Edu Manzano," Puno said.

There were conflicting reports earlier about the position and party to which Edu will run. He was reported to run as a senator to Liberal Party, Puwersa ng Masa and Nationalista Party. But Edu said those were just invitations from the afforementioned parties and it's the Lakas-Kampi he selected.

In an interview with TV Patrol tonight, Edu said he chose Lakas-Kampi for the machinery it possesses and that he doesn't want to sell his house again for the campaign just like he did when he run as mayor and lost to now Makati mayor Jejomar Binay.

Edu Manzano is currently hosting ABS-CBN game show "Game ka Na Ba?" and formerly the chairman of Optical Media Board under the Arroyo administration.

Oes Tsetnoc Fan Site

Oes Tsetnoc. Ok, this has nothing to do with showbiz nor celebrities. This post is just a support to a friend's entry in the ongoing SEO Contest sponsored by Promo Junkie Webmasters Forum.

This contest is participated by the best SEO practitioners in the world. It is really a tough contest and even the experts admit it. Although this contest doesn't involve big financial reward, the prestige in winning any SEO contest is the biggest gain.

Further, this can be added to one's SEO portfolio and this will give you an advantage against your competitors in the business.

The contest will culminate on December 15, 2009 and the grand winner will receive $1000, second is $300 and third prize is $200. But as I said, the prestige in winning this "oes tsetnoc" contest is what most participants are after for.

Arnel Pineda Featured in Oprah Winfrey Show

Arnel Pineda is featured in Oprah Winfrey Show with the theme "Don't Stop Believing". The theme really fitted Arnel in the show.

Before being a successful Journey lead vocalist, He lived a hard life in the Philippines. He had to make a living by himself when his mother died.

"I would hang out with my friends, so they would make me sing in exchange for food," Arnel said. Worse, he became homeless and slept in Manila's parks and collected scrap metal to earn money for food.

Arnel learned to sing and had a style so unorthodox that caught the attention of Neil Scholn of the famous rock band Journey. That was the beginning of Arnel Pineda's ascend to stardom and the rest is history.

Is Rhian Ramos Falling For Dingdong Dantes?

During the presscon of "Stairway To Heaven", Rhian Ramos kept on saying that she will never fall to a man whose love is already owned by other woman. That was her statement when asked if there will be a chance that she will fall in love with her leading man, who happens to be Dingdong Dantes.

But when the taping of their soap opera started, it seems Rhian has forgotten what she said during the presscon. She is now saying all positive for Dingdong and one tabloid even reported that Rhian admitted that Dingdong has something that make Rhian feels Dingdong is special.

During the guesting of Rhian in "Show Me Da Manny" of Manny Pacquiao and Marian Rivera, who happens to be the real-life girlfriend of Dingdong, some observed Rhian and Marian were not comfortable with each other. That they only said "hi" with each other when they met in the dressing room.

But Rhian was quick to say that there's nothing wrong going on in between her and Marian.

"Hindi kami close at hindi rin po kami magkaaway, kaya di kami gaanong nag-uusap noong mag-guest ako sa 'Show Me Da Manny'," Rhian clarified.

But Rhian was also quick to admit that she likes Dingdong for his height and his dedication to his work.

Filipinos Pacquiao - Vera Headlines Nov. 14 Mega Fights

Come November 14, 2009, two Filipinos will headline two major sports events in the world. Manny Pacquiao is pitted against Miguel Cotto in this year's greatest boxing bout for the WBO Welterweight (147 lbs) title. On the other hand, Brandon "The Truth" Vera will headline UFC 105 in England against UFC great Randy Couture.

For those who doesn't know Brandon Vera, he is a Filipino-American campaigning in the UFC. His father is a Filipino and his mother is an Italian-American. He has been fighting in the UFC early 2000 and made a remarkable career. He has also visited the Philippines and even portrayed as an assassin in "Kamandag" in GMA-7.

Randy Couture is a prominent name in the UFC and this fight will mean a lot for Brandon Vera. Brandon has somewhat a luckluster return to the UFC winning only 2 of his last five fights. But nevertheless, this main event for the UFC will be a big event for the fight fans in England.

UFC and boxing has been in a "cold war" these days. Some observers even say that UFC has already surpassed boxing. UFC always schedule a UFC event everytime there's a boxing event and many of those boxing events were in a lopsided loss against the UFC.

This time, on November 14, two blockbuster events in boxing and UFC are once again pitted against each other. But no matter which is more successful, we can be proud to say that two great Filipinos in the field of sports, Manny Pacquiao and Brandon "The Truth" Vera, had made those events possible.

Kristine Hermosa in "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" Primadonna Issue

Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales' soap "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" is gaining grounds in the primetime. In AGB Nielsen's latest TV ratings, "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" has already climbed to the number 2 spot coming second to "Darna" in the Mega Manila Area. In the TNS national ratings, "DMII" ranked 4th, with "Tayong Dalawa", "May Bukas Pa", and "TV Patrol" in the top 3, but nevertheless beats "Darna", which came fifth, by more than 2%.

Then came the primadonna issue. Kristine has been rumored to be too demanding in the set of "Dahil May Isang Ikaw" like asking for shortened work hours just like veteran actress Lorna Tolentino.

There are also talks of Kristine failed to rport to some in-location tapings since she didn't like the place. The taping was allegedly continued when her demand/request was granted.

Cancellation/delays of tapings were also due to her "attitude problems" and this irked her co-stars in the show.

But Kristine Hermosa's camp categorically denied the issue.

"No, it's not true! Everything is going smoothly. We don;t have problems at all, not that we heard of anything, especially something that involves Kristine," Kristine's handler Alan Real said.

About the tantrums; "Unlikely. That's actually funny. She is not like that at all. She is not one to throw tantrums just so she could have her way." Real added.

“She doesn’t have to ask for anything at all because everything is in the contract to begin with. She wouldn’t have signed up for the show if she will have problems with the schedule and everything,” Real said on the "shortened shooting schedule" issue.

About the issue that Bea Alonzo will replace her if she continues with her tantrums, "That's absurd. Untrue." stressed Alan Real.

Movies, Hosting, Album; Coming to Carla Abellana's Way

Carla Abellana just can't believe the blessings are coming to her career at this early stage. While her debut soap opera is strongly gaining grounds in TV ratings, movie projects, hosting projects and an album literally lined-up for her young showbiz career.

As contract star of Regal Films, Carla Abellana is going to appear in "Nieves The Engkanto Slayer" together with Marian Rivera which is an entry for the 2009 Metro Manila Film Festival. Then her first movie "Ang Nanay Kong Aswang" is also slated this year.

"Mano Po 6", which is also a 2009 MMFF entry, is also lined-up for her which is a big challenge for her since she will be portraying opposite Megastar Sharon Cuneta and hunk Dennis Trillo.

About her album, it is under Universal Records which Carla admitted she is very excited about it.

"They are already preparing songs for the album. We've been attending meetings. My first movie under Regal Films, we'll start taping next month. Hindi pa final e, ang dami pa naming pinag-uusapan. Under negotiation pa ang maraming bagay pero I'm excited about it." Carla said.

Luis admitted that their relationship (Luiz and Angel) is going through what he called as a "phase" at the moment. But when asked about the Maricar Reyes angle he quickly denied it saying Maricar has nothing to do with it.

"I'd been hearing the weirdest stories, I don't need to elaborate. Ang sinabi ko never was, never is, walang third party," Luis emphasized to the press.

Maricar Reyes' involvement with the actor was when she was reported to be the leading lady of Luis in "Flash Bomba" but instead the role went to Roxanne Guinoo.

Angelica Panganiban and Christine Reyes Are 'Friends Again'

Angelica Panganiban and Christine Reyes have finally ironed out their differences. This was revealed by the two sexy young stars in an interview.

It can be recalled that Christine left ABS-CBN's "Banana Split" due to differences to some mainstays in the show particularly Angelica Panganiban. Although both of them denied they had a misunderstanding when the issue was still hot, they have admitted during the interview that they really indeed had a rift but everything is already a part of the past now.

"Maganda yung pinalipas muna yong issue," Angelica said. They also revealed that their common friend Ketchup Eusebio paved the way for the meeting between them.

"I went to Angelica's house and we hugged each other and there, very thanful ako na ok na kami," explained Christine.

"It was as if walang nangyari, nakakatuwa na ayos na. basta ok na kami," said Angelica.

There are no indications however if Christine is going to return to "Banana Split".

Marian Rivera vs Carla Abellana in the Making?

When Carla Abellana was just starting in showbiz, many were saying that she will be the next Marian Rivera or even surpass the popularity Marian had. There were comparisons too and what was remarkable in the comparisons was Carla was an honor student in college while Marian isn't.

Another is Marian's attitude. She is known as "maldita" to the press and to her co-workers and even to some of her fans. It was even video taped when Marian's tantrum broke out during one of her tapings. Carla is know to be silent and behaved and goes well with her co-workers and fans.

But when the two celebrities come face-to-face in one showbiz event and interviewed by press, both said there is no competition going on between them.

But lately, a showbiz column reported Marian is doing otherwise. It reported that in one showbiz event where the two were both guests, Marian refused to share her dressing room with Carla because she wants the room exclusive for her.

Then in a taping of "Darna", Marian came late and when she arrived she was heard saying "dumating na ang reyna na walang bulaklak sa tenga" which reallyh stunned those who heard it. She was referring to Carla who always has a flower in her ear for her role in her top rating soap "Rosalinda".

Is Marian buying a war? Maybe not, it's just Marian doing her "maldita" way.

ABS-CBN Supports Wowowee Host Willie Revillame

ABS-CBN shows it's support for Wowowee host Willie Revillame in its letter to the KBP in response to the MTRCB and AFIMA's complaint against the host.

Below is the letter as published by PEP:

Dear Ms. Gozum:

We write in reply to your letter dated 10 August 2009, requesting ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation to comment on the complaint of Movie and Television Review & Classification Board (MTRCB) Chairperson Ma. Consoliza P. Laguardia dated 10 August 2009, and an undated statement of Jerry Yap, President of the Alyansa ng Filipino Mamamahayag (AFIMA).

The said complaint and statement both refer to the 03 August 2009 episode of the television program Wowowee, wherein the funeral cortege of the late President Corazon C. Aquino was exhibited as an inset in portions of the said program. The MTRCB letter alleges that Mr. Revillame "appeared to arrogantly demand the removal of the inset screen showing the funeral cortege." The Honorable MTRCB Chairperson then opined that the said act was "desecrating the dead" and, thus, "seems to be in violation of Article 20, Section 2, of the Broadcast Code of the Philippines." On the other hand, the AFIMA statement states that "[f]or him to demand the removal of the little window screen showing the funeral march of the woman who got ABS-CBN back from Marcos is a blasphemy of democracy, an act despicable x x x." It appears, therefore, that the complaint and statement are both based on the alleged disrespect by Mr. Revillame to the late former President Aquino.

It is ABS-CBN's position that there was no disrespect of the dead by Mr. Revillame. When the funeral cortege of former President Aquino was shown as an inset during Wowowee, Mr. Revillame expressed his opinion of the inappropriateness of the simultaneous exhibition of both the funeral cortege and Wowowee, and his preference that only one or the other be shown.

In expressing his opinion and preference, though, Mr. Revillame did not show disrespect for former President Aquino. In fact, the contrary is true. In making his statements, Mr. Revillame wanted to give due respect to former President Aquino and her funeral cortege.

Indeed, in Filipino culture, customs, and tradition, ceremonies involving the dead are solemn and sober. Thus, the laughter, jokes, and happiness usually seen in a program like Wowowee would appear to be inappropriate when viewed together with the funeral cortege. On the one hand, the Filipino people are mourning the death of a loved and respected former President, and on the other hand, Wowowee is trying to entertain its audience.

It appears, therefore, that Mr. Revillame's issue was with the inappropriateness of Wowowee and the funeral cortege being shown together, and not with the funeral cortege itself. While it may be argued that Mr. Revillame could have expressed his thoughts in a better way and that it would have been better to raise them privately, instead of the public manner in which he did, such was not disrespectful of the dead and does not constitute an offense under the KBP Broadcast Code of the Philippines.

We trust the foregoing comment satisfactorily establishes that there was no violation of the KBP Broadcast Code of the Philippines.

Ara Mina Joins A Concert For The Environment

ARA MINA joins other Kapampangan artists in a concert to gather support for the campaign to save the trees in Pampanga.

But Marian denied the rumors and even stressed Katrina made a big role in the success of "Marimar" with Dingdong Dantes.

Marian also laughs when asked about her custume that other described it as "super sexy". Marian said the custume is not yet finished and they are still finalizing the details in it.

ABS-CBN Has Been Dragged To Hayden Kho Sex Video Controversy

Someone's pointing somebody else. That's what's happening to the persons accused in distributing the sex video of Dr. Hayden Kho Jr and Katrina Halili. Dr. Vicki Belo, Erik Chua and Bistek Rosario gave their own statements and they're accusing each other of being the culprit.

Hayden pointed Erik to have uploaded the video but when Erik was interviewed, he denied Haydem's allegations and pointed instead to Dr. Belo.

In response, Dr. Belo's camp, through Quark Henares and Atty. Adel Tamano, denied Erik's allegations and pointed back at Erik.

Quark then made a big revelation: Erik allegedly made an attempt to sell the sex videos to ABS-CBN for 2 million pesos but ABS-CBN made a counter-offer of 200,000 pesos.

Now, if Quark's allegations were true, is ABS-CBN already in the scene long before the sex video scandal erupted? And who is this ABS-CBN personnel who made the 200,000 offer to Erik?

As of this writing, the Kapamilya network is yet to issue an official statement in this matter.

Annabelle Rama Hits John Lloyd Cruz

Annabelle Rama feels really bad on John Lloyd Cruz's denial of Ruffa Gutierrez. But Annabelle made it clear that she has nothing personal against John Lloyd.

"I don't say na ayoko sa kanya kasi mabait naman siya, single at magandang trabaho. Ang ayoko lang, dinenay niya si Ruffa nang interbiyuhin siya. Bakit, ikinahihiya ba niya ang anak ko? O natatakot siyang masira ang career niya kaya gusto niyang itago? Kung love niya talaga si Ruffa, di aminin niya at dapat maging proud siya rito. Siempre ako, bilang ina ni Ruffa, nasasaktan sa treatment sa kanya ni John Lloyd." Annabelle said in an interview.

Are her grandchildren, Lorin and Venice, against John Lloyd? "No, favorite nga nila kasi they watched "BEtty La Fea" and they know him as Armando. Tilian nga sila pag nakikita nila si John Lloyd sa TV and they really know him as Armando. Favorite nila sina Zorro at Armando."

Annabelle added she badly misses her grandchildren. "Paggising ko sa umaga, nandiyan na yung dalawang apo ko na umaliw sa akin. Ngayong lumipat na sila ng condo, talagang mami-miss ko sila."

"Nauna rito, nakausap si Jiro ng Star Magic upang pag-usapan ang problemang kanyang pinagdadaanan. Nangako siya na babalik sa pagtatrabaho. Ito ay hindi niya tinupad at patuloy ang hindi niya pagsipot sa kanyang taping.

"Mahusay na artista si Jiro at nakapanghihinayang ang kanyang pagkawala sa Tayong Dalawa, pero kailangang bigyan ng tamang leksyon ang ganitong 'unprofessional at irresponsible behavior.'"

KC Concepcion, Ruffa Mae Quinto and Bea Alonzo were all rumored to be featured in Hayden Kho's sex video scandal. But as of last night, Eric Chua - the man pointed by Hayden to distribute the video, has denied seeing any of the afformentioned actresses in the videos he recovered from Hayden's computers.

In the exclusive interview of Kris Aquino in her showbiz talk program Showbiz News Ngayon, Eric cleared the name of the three.

Kc and Bea were rumored to have been video taped while changing their clothes in Dr. Vicki Belo's clinic while Ruffa Mae allegedly in a video doing it with Hayden. But after last night's revelation of Eric Chua, all those rumors are proven to be just rumors.

Some observers commented on the silence of Dr. Belo especially in the case of Bea since Bea is one of her clinic's celebrity endorsers.

Kris also asked Eric if there are ohter "big names" he know in Hayden's files, Eric said there's none.

Hayden Kho's Celebrity "Victims"

Hayden Kho's sex video "victims" do not limit to Katrina Halili. Although Katrina is the only celebrity who has the courage to come up in the open and talked about it.

This was revealed by Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr. in his privilege speech recently in the senate. Sen. Revilla however didn't mentioned the names of other celebrities involved in the sex video scandal of Dr. Hayden Kho.

One of the rumored celebrities is Maricar Reyes, an ABS-CBN talent who admitted she had an affair with Hayden back in University of Santo Tomas when they were still medical students in the said school.

"We dated for a year. I was committed to him but we're not compatible. We grew apart... I cant remember the details anymore, it's been a long time," Maricar said in an interview.

Maricar Reyes is currently included in the cast of the Kapamilya network's afternoon soap "Precious Hearts Romances Present Bud Brothers" and she has not issued an official statement about the alleged sex video with Hayden.

Another rumored celebrity allegedly in Hayden's sex videos is Ruffa Mae Quinto. She has been linked to the videos since December 2008 by Lolit Solis who claimed she saw the videos but Ruffa Mae kept her silence in the issue.

Then there's Bea Alonzo, another ABS-CBN talent, although she merely "laughed at" the notion that she is one of Hayden's "victims".

"Actually, what people had been telling me is that, it's not an actual sex video. It was me daw changing clothes in some sort of a dressing room," Bea said in an interview.

“Actually I thought it was really funny. At first, I was like, ‘Did you buy your copies already? I’m supposed to be in there.’”

Alonzo said she first heard of the news from ABS- CBN director Lauren Dyogi. “He said he heard it from some of (ABS- CBN) production people.”

Then as earlier reported, there's KC Concepcion who is said to be video taped via mobile phone changing her clothes. (click here to read KC Concepcion and Hayden Kho report)

Vicki Belo however is the only celebrity who admitted giving consent to Hayden to take a video in one of their sexual encounters. "I was aware, he asked me and I consented on the condition that it will be deleted immediately after," Vicki told reporters in an interview.

Vicki and Hayden parted ways when Vicki reportedly saw videos of Hayden having sex with other women.

Due to the number of celebrities allegedly involved in Hayden's sex video scandal, the DVD is selling like hot cakes not only in the Philippines but also in other countries.

In Malaysia, pirated DVD sellers are cashing in the the videos and they titled it "The Philippines Version of Edison Chen" and even made an artwork for the DVD showing superimposed nude pictures of Katrina and Hayden.

"I sold 30 DVD's a day last month. People do not mind buying it even though it is priced higher than the usual pornographic DVD's," an anonymous retailer said in an interview.

KC Concepcion's Name Joins the Hayden Kho Sex Scandal Bandwagon

KC Concepcion's name has been earlier dragged in to the Hayden Kho sex video controversy. This develops after talks of KC being video taped by Hayden secretly while KC was dressing up.

It is not yet clear however if KC is really the woman in the video. The video depicts the alleged KC getting dressed after somewhat a "love making event." The video is also discreetly taken by Hayden Kho and KC has no knowledge of it.

The video is said to be spreading now in mobile phones and the internet. KC's involvement started with some "blind items" in some showbiz websites and prints reporting a young superstar who is also known for her global advocacy is also featured in one of Hayden's sex videos. The showbiz world immediately jumped into conclusion that the description fits KC Concepcion.

But Lolit Solis says otherwise. "No, it's not her," says Lolit when interviewed by the Inquirer about the rumors of KC Concepcion and Hayden Kho sex scandal.

Solis said KC and Hayden met at the Embassy bar in The Fort and "they were often seen talking there".

Lolit further reasoned out that KC might not be involved in a romantic relation with Hayden. "Hayden's not KC's type. Di mahilig sa guapo yun." stressed Manay Lolit.

KC is currently in the US together with her Mega Mom Sharon Cuneta for a series of concerts in the Filipino communities there.
