Diet shields GF from limelight

IT WAS SUCH A DELIGHT to interview Diether Ocampo for my daily show ?Chikalectric? with IC on Viva Cinema Channel. Since Diet and I are super close, it was such a candid and relaxed tete-a-tete.

Diet has never been happier. ?After a roller-coaster relationship with Kristine Hermosa, it?s so refreshing that my love life is more peaceful now and secure,? Diet beamed. ?My new girlfriend (half-Pinay, half-Spanish Rima Lorza Ostwani) is so supportive, an answer to my prayer.?

As much as possible, Diet wants to shield her from the limelight. ?I bring her to show biz events but I don?t want her to give too many interviews,? Diet said. ?I don?t want our relationship to turn into a circus.?

Is he ready to take the plunge again since the annulment of his marriage with Kristine has been granted? ?I?m taking it slow this time. I just recovered from a tumultuous relationship so ayoko munang sumabak uli.?

There are times for moving ahead. This time Diet is enjoying where he is. Why rush when you don?t want time to pass? Is forever about to start for Diet and his girl?

Eye to eye

Nadia Montenegro is still recuperating from her eye operation. Her medical condition has softened her heart. She?s now willing to make peace with Gretchen Barretto after their heated exchange of words in the past.

?I was on the phone with Pops, and Greta happened to be with her,? Nadj reveals. ?She got the phone from Pipay and said ?Hi?. Nabigla ako! It lasted for 30 seconds. I appreciate it kasi siya ang nag-exert ng effort. I?d rather keep private the details of our brief talk. It was an unforgettable moment.?

After an eye surgery, Nadj is willing to see eye to eye with Greta.

No big deal

Alessandra de Rossi paid me a surprise visit during my taping with IC for our show. It?s always so much fun being around her. Her joie de vivre is contagious.

Alex thinks the issue on Ara Mina borrowing money from her sister Cristine Reyes should not be a big deal. ?Nothing wrong with asking help from your sis,? Alex said. ?Assunta and I always run to each other for help. What are sisters for?? They?re sisters of perpetual help.

Brat and Yaya

Ogie Alcasid will concentrate more on his TV shows and movies this year. ?I won?t be doing concerts muna,? says Ogie. ?I?m excited for the movie version of Spoiled Brat and Yaya based on my character and Michael V?s in ?Bubble Gang?. We will also host a game show na in character pa rin kami. It?s the Pinoy version of a popular show in Japan where contestants try to fit into huge holes of different shapes.?

Ogie?s career has never been in better shape.

Anime action

Get your daily dose of anime action with Studio 23?s ?Inuyasasha 3? at 6:30 PM, and ?Samurai X? at 7:30 PM. The adventures of vampire slayer Saya Otonashi in ?Blood + (Blood Plus),? based on ?Blood the Last Vampire,? the sixth-best selling anime of all time in the United States, airs Mondays at 7:30 PM. For comedy and romance, catch the hit Mexican series ?Las Tontas? (weekdays, 10 AM) and the Korean version of the phenomenal ?My Girl? (Mondays, 1 PM) Arriba Kabarkada!

Full house

It was ?wow? with a capital Q at the recent QTV 11 Trade Show at the Cinema 2 of Greenbelt 3, as the local lifestyle channel unveiled its impressive line-up of shows with a premiere night-style two-day event. The trade event was unlike any other as the entire program was held inside a movie house, reminiscent of a Hollywood private screening.

The event was a box-office hit, so to speak, as the screening played to a full house.

PERSONAL: Happy, happy birthday to one of my best friends, Liezl Martinez. You have so much to live for, so hang on. I celebrate all the wonderful things you are to me. Love yah Kumareng Sweet Baby.
