MANILA, Philippines?Former basketball star Benjie Paras is done with dribbling his heart around. He?s now happy with his charming wife Ly Diomampo.

?Tinanggap niya ako and my two kids (with actress Jackie Forster) ? no questions asked,? says Benj. ?In God?s time, we will have our own kids. Ly stopped working as a teacher to take care of me and my kids. Ako na lang ang student niya. Sometimes she corrects my grammar (laughs).?

Ly is star material. Isn?t she gonna join show biz? ?There were offers but she prefers a quiet life. She?s done an TV ad for a shampoo with Maricel Soriano.? How has Ly changed his definition of love after his turbulent past? ?She?s six years younger than me. We?re in our 30s. Graduate na ako sa young girls. Sakit ng ulo ?yon. With Ly, secured na ako. Last year, I forgot my birthday. Pinaalala nya sa akin.?

Benj has finally dunked his heart for the winning shot.

Comic duo

If there were an Olympics for comedy, Dolphy and Vic Sotto would be gold and silver medalists, respectively.

The Comedy King meets the Box-Office King in RVQ Productions, M-Zet Films and APT Entertainments? ?Dobol Trobol: Get Redi 2 Rambol,? opening Aug. 13.

It?s about an aging resort security guard-cook (Dolphy) and his daughter (Riza Santos) who lead a quiet life until the resort?s new recruit (Vic) falls in love with Riza.

As a new grandpa, Vic is funny, too. ?When my baby Nic cries, Dad would ask, ?What?s wrong baby? Tell lolo!?,? Danica says. ?I can?t help but laugh kasi sabi niya ayaw niya magpatawag ng lolo.?

Vic by any other name plus Dolphy spells laughter anytime.

Going strong

Paolo Contis and Isabel Oli?s two years and seven months relationship is going strong. ?Look! It?s me shirtless on her cell?s wallpaper. Proud siya talaga na ganda ng katawan ko,? exclaims Pao. His phone has Isabel?s pic on it, too. ?Pero yung niece ko with her sa pic ang naka two-piece (laughs).?

He probably wants to keep her sexy poses for his eyes only.

TV masterpiece

GMA 7 unveils a TV masterpiece via ?Obra? (Thursdays starting Aug. 14 after ?Dalja?s Spring?). It features Kapuso stars in four stories about love, life and sacrifice.

Its premiere offering, ?Obra,? presents femme fatale Katrina Halili as a taong grasa, widow, gold digger and prostitute. Her dream role is Gina Alajar?s Salome.

Critically-acclaimed directors Maryo J. de los Reyes, Bibeth Orteza, Jun Lana and Joel Lamangan bring weekly prime time drama to a whole new level. Welcome to TV?s museum!
