Chienna Filomeno reveals why she got her nose done

Chienna Filomeno reveals why she got her nose done

  • The doctor hit her nose with a scalpel when he was delivering her
  • She always felt insecure about it because her parents have high nose bridges
  • She is now more confident after the surgery

In society today, it is very common to go under the knife. People are shallower and attractiveness has become more of a necessity. Most of the time, it is the only way to deal with superficial insecurities.

Actress Chienna Filomeno is one of those individuals who admit to going under the knife.

Around April, the actress admitted to getting a nose job, but did not reveal the reason why. Most people would say she was already perfect even before the surgery, but to her, she was lacking something.

Chiena was born a Cesarean baby, and her delivery was considered an emergency. During the process, the doctor accidentally hit her nose with the scalpel. They said that the nose would just heal and go back to normal since she was still an infant. But according to the actress, her nose stopped growing when she was 14.

“Since emergency,  ‘yung doctor paghiwa niya, natamaan ang ilong ko. Tapos sabi nila magre-regenerate daw kasi baby pa naman ako so okay tapos 14 [years old na ako], wala, hindi pa tumubo ‘yung buto.”

She felt insecure because her parents have both tall nose bridges. There is actually a visible scar on her nose where the scalpel hit it.

She said that she is more confident now that her main insecurity has been dealt with.

“It helped a lot like I got a lot of projects, ‘yung confidence siyempre since alam ko na ayan na may buto na, andyan na siya, mas naging confident ako at nakita ng tao na ‘yun.”

It also has been rumored that she got her breast done to which she replied, “That‘s real, [I use] wonder bra, the right bra. I tell you next time and ‘yung pwet ko,‘yan lang malaki sa akin.

Her fans and netizens have always speculated that she got her nose done way before she even became an actress.

During his last moments, after his performance, according to JM De Guzman who was one of the performers on the event, all he thought was that Chokoleit was tired because of his performance before he was brought to the hospital.

“Not his usual self na parang jolly… inisip ko parang baka pagod lang or feel down,” said De Guzman.

“Pero at the same time I know he’s in a safe place, happy place,” he added.

Why Maymay Entrata said “No” to becoming a beauty queen

Why Maymay Entrata said “No” to becoming a beauty queen

  • The Kapamilya star doesn’t see herself joining a beauty pageant
  • To be chosen by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray to portray her makes her feel so overwhelmed
  • She wanted all the people who will watch the episode to be happy instead of questioning with so many ”whys”

Maymay Entrata has showed off her skills in walking like a beauty queen. She was admired and received lots of encouragement from her fans to join beauty pageants, but then it isn’t in her priorities.

The actress doesn’t see herself joining a beauty pageant. It seems very difficult for her because she has a lot of priorities in her life and wants to focus more on her showbiz career. Still, she thanks everyone for saying that she has the potential to become a beauty queen.

“Kapag beauty queen kasi, hindi po clear sa akin kung ‘yon ang gusto ko. Maraming salamat po sa nagsasabi. Para sa akin magiging mahirap ‘yon. Marami pa akong priority sa buhay ko, may trabaho po dito sa showbiz.”

The actress was laughing while sharing the conversation with her grandfather – about her joining a pageant and telling him that. “Sinasabi ng lolo ko, sabi ko, ‘Maawa ka sa akin. Wala akong dibdib, ‘tay,’” is an implication that as of now, she is not seeing herself joining a pageant.

Maymay is also aware that Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray wanted her to portray her in a ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ episode, should it push through. To be chosen by Miss Catriona makes her feel so overwhelmed.

“Ang alam ko po, isa ako na talagang overwhelmed. Sobrang humbling na ako ang isa sa mga pinili ni Ms. Catriona pero gano’n nga po nakakakaba talaga.”

The majority of the netizen’s decision is what matters most to her, because she wanted all of the people who will watch the episode to be happy, instead of questioning with so many ”whys.” She also states that they have both different cultures, and she has doubts within herself in speaking English since Catriona is a fluent speaker.

“Gusto ko sang-ayon lahat ng tao. Gusto ko masaya lahat sila. Hindi ‘yung ‘Ah, bakit siya?’ Kung ano ang majority na gusto ng tao, ‘yun ang dapat sundin. Magkaiba kami ng culture ni Ms. Catriona. Hindi ko alam kung nagdadalawang-isip sila. Alam n’yo naman na ang ganda ni Ms. Catriona, English din siyang (magsalita), alangan naman na mag-English din ako sa MMK.”

As of now, there’s still no confirmation of her portraying Catriona Gray in ‘MMK’ and its clear to us that she is not into beauty pageants.

Bureau of Immigration unit urges Deportation of Tony Labrusca

  • Deportation case against Tony Labrusca was suggested by a unit of the Bureau of Immigration.
  • This is in-line with the star’s alleged NAIA outburst on January 3.

A unit of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) has recommended a deportation case against Fil-Am celebrity Tony Labrusca.

In an interview with Philippine News Agency on Wednesday, January 16, BI Deputy Commissioner Tomas Javier said that it because of his lack of a working visa.

“The (Intelligence Division) recommended to Legal (Division) the filing of deportation case against Labrusca for working without permit, I think.”

It started on January 3, when Labrusca had an alleged burst of outrage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. He has said to have cursed and shouted at immigration officers who were asking for his working permit.

He was said to be upset after being only allowed 30 days in the country and not the balikbayan privileges which are only given to former Philippine citizens and those with a Filipino family member travelling with them.

In a statement, Labrusca admitted that he was frustrated and was not aware of the policies.

“I admit I was a bit frustrated and that I asked why I was only given 30 days to stay in the country this time. I was unaware of the policy that because I was not with my mother, I did not qualify for a Balikbayan stamp.”

Actress Jodi Sta. Maria just came back from her vacation with son Thirdy Lacson wherein they traveled in Finland and Sweden.

She shared that it was Thirdy’s request to try husky sledding.

“First time kaming makapag-try ng husky sledding and at the same time, we were able to drive a reindeer sled. We were able to get a reindeer driver’s license.”

View this post on Instagram

Just got back from our family holiday. Ibang-iba yung experience sa Finland and Sweden dahil hindi naman nagyeyelo dito sa ‘tin sa Pilipinas. Tulad nalang ng paglalaro namin ni Muy sa snow. Super na-enjoy namin yun. Minsan parang ako pa yung bata kaysa sa anak ko. Haha! ❤️ It’s as if time stands still when you watch the snow fall. Mapapa-muni muni ka din sa lamig: Pag makapal na yung snow at hindi ka makalabas, you can either shovel, or make snow angels. Just like in life – When faced with trials, you can grumble about how hard the situation is, or you can keep a positive outlook, see the good, and make the most of the experience. Sana naging maayos at payapa ang Christmas and New Year break niyo para makabalik tayo sa mga trabaho natin ng recharged at inspired. Kayo, kamusta ang pasok ng New Year niyo? ❤️

A post shared by Jodi Sta.Maria (@jodistamaria) on

A reindeer driver’s license is required for an individual to be able to drive a reindeer sled in Lapland. There are only two modes of transportation in the area: ski and the said sled.

Jodi will be a part of three movies. One of which is Second Coming wherein she’ll play as the wife of Marvin Agustin.

“It’s a mix of drama, thriller, and horror. Ano ba ang naghu-haunt sa pamilya ito? Totoo ba itong multo?”

She has also finished filming with Laurice Guillen for the movie Man and Wife.

The third one is Clarita, which is still in the middle of the principal photography.

But aside from that, Jodi has hinted about a Hollywood film that she’s about to be a part of.

“May gagawin tayong international film very soon. Pero wala pa ako sa posisyon to spill the beans.

“But I am really praying about it. Hollywood levels! Masyado akong kinikilig kasi parang hindi ko alam kung paano sila kakaharapin. Baka ma-tongue-tied ako. Baka manganga ako, ma-starstruck ako.”

But for now, she’s back to filming her series Mea Culupa that is set to air this 2019. She’s going to act alongside John Arcilla, Janice de Belen, Bela Padilla, Sandino Martin, Ketchup Eusebio, Kit Thompson, Ivana Alawi, and Tony Labrusca.
