MANILA, Philippines?The relaunching of Flawless, which is partly-owned by Dr. Vicki Belo, was held days after the Hayden Kho-Katrina Halili video scandal broke out.
Despite the issue, Kat was taken in as an endorser of Flawless. ?As the cliché goes, ?Trabaho lang, walang personalan,?? said the tres charmante CEO and managing director Rubby Sy. ?We?ve planned this event months ago. Natiyempo lang na nagka-scandal.?
Everyone at the Blue Leaf Pavilion was holding their breath if Katrina would show up and come face to face with Vicki onstage. But Kat was a no-show.
?I feel like I?ve been through a war. As the new tagline of Flawless goes, ?Less is more? so I?d rather talk less,? Vicki said. ?My conscience is clear. I?m willing to cooperate with the investigation as a witness.?
She was escorted by her ex-husband Atom Henares and her lawyer Adel Tamano whom she called her bodyguard. No, Tamano is not Vicki?s new lover. He is already spoken for.
The ?other? Katrina video that caught everyone?s attention at the event was her Zen-like shots in Flawless? new sleek TVC unveiled at the relaunch hosted by Phoemela Baranda.
Less is more. More amor (for yourself) when you try Flawless.
Leave it to Pinoys to find humor in everything, even scandals. Got these forwarded texts:
?Pag nag ?Hi? sa yo si Katrina, ano sasabihin mo? Eh di Hay den!
?Anong brand ng bed ang ginamit ni Hayden and Katrina? KATREna?
?Kaya naman pala naging FHM?s Sexiest si Katrina. FHM?For Hayden?s (porn) Movie.?
Show biz nightmare
GMA Network?s SRO Cinemaserye presents ?Suspetsa,? a suspense thriller that starts airing tomorrow after ?One Liter of Tears.? It stars Yasmien Kurdi, Nadine Samonte, Jennylyn Mercado, Ryan Eigenmann, Victor Aliwalas, Paolo Contis and Baron Geisler.
The story centers on three childhood friends?the assertive probinsiyana Nina (Jennylyn), smart yet big-head Leonor (Yasmien) and the lovely but feeble Abigail (Nadine). Their bond is tested when Nina and Leonor save Abigail from being raped by the mayor?s son whom they almost killed. That nightmare haunts them years after.
Yasmien says show biz can turn into a nightmare sometimes. ?I make it a point not to miss my classes. Going to school keeps me grounded.?
Stars may be larger than life but they also must have a life.
