BB Gandanghari on Zoren-Carmina wedding: ‘I’m very happy for them’

BB Gandanghari as Michiko in 'Enchanted Garden'. As far as BB Gandanghari is concerned, Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi deserve their happy ending. “I’m very happy for them. They should get married and be legally husband and wife. After 14 years of living together, doon na talaga dapat papunta ‘yun,” said BB, who in her past life as actor Rustom Padilla was married to Carmina. That marriage was only annulled early this year, paving the way for the couple’s plan to tie the knot before the year ends. “My lawyer told me that it’s already annulled so I don’t see any legal obstacle for them,” BB told InterAksyon during a press conference for TV5’s fantaserye, “Enchanted Garden” on Thursday. Although she has not spoken to Carmina since she came out and later declared Rustom as dead, BB has remained supportive of her former spouse. “Whenever I’m home which is not very often, I would try to watch her new soap (ABS-CBN’s ‘Lorenzo’s Time’) and I have to adm

Jake Cuenca vows to go out with ‘a big bang’ on his final Bench show

Jake Cuenca believes in saving the best for last. As one of Bench’s most daring endorsers, the model-actor has never been shy about baring his well-sculpted physique, be it on billboards, print ads and on stage for Bench’s highly anticipated biennial fashion event. His participation in the Bench Universe Underwear and Denim Fashion Show on September 13 and 14 at the Mall of Asia Arena will probably be his final stage appearance for the clothing brand.

Why end a good thing? “Siyempre, ilang beses ko na nagawa ‘yan at ayoko namang magsawa ang mga tao sa akin. Kaya nag-iisip ako ng kakaibang gagawin. Something that will always be remembered kapag may Bench fashion show,” he says. So what is it? After baring his backside a couple of times, will he do “the full monty”? “Hintayin na lang nila iyong gagawin ko

Malalaman n’yo soon.” This was Derek Ramsay’s reply to the latest rumor that he has found a new girlfriend after his much-publicized split with Angelica Panganiban.
