My Sinful Satirical Mood
An afternoon to Heckle!
Willie Revillame to Guest in Eat Bulaga!

There had been rumours that Willie Revillame will appear on the legendary and Philippines’ longest running noon time show, Eat Bulaga, where that same show celebrated and comedian veteran Joey de Leon also hosts. To recollect on the past, there have been harsh and unfriendly exchange of words between the two; the rift eventually died out and turned into a showbizy (author’s term for alleged staged drama) reconciliation.
Wow! Getting cosy and close with the former rival? First, I suspected that the peace and make up stuff between the two was just a manly act from Joey. As I consider, Joey was plain innocent with his brave points of view in Willie’s past actions and Willie’s past controversial show. So, the well-respected veteran has nothing to be sorry and ask forgiveness about. So, when does the reconciliation happen? If Joey did not apologize for his actions and words he threw, in same way, I didn’t actually hear any regret or apology from Willie. He’s arrogance, thought he got away from it, but the audience (people who actually think and those are cannot be easily persuade from his melodramatic dumb words) knows Willie isn’t sincere. I knew in my heart that the “being friends”with Joey is just one of your sensationalized promotion of your egoistic self and career (see Willie? You are not the only one who knows to be over-the-top speaker lol. Anybody can). I grew up with Eat Bulaga, I had been admiring their wacky, well-thought, team-effort and funny shows since I was a little girl (I can’t even remember when was the very first time I had watched it. So literally, I grew with Eat Bulaga’s fam) . I wouldn’t want my only trusted noon time show be used for any self gratifying individual like Willie Revillame. I hope the Eat Bulaga Team both the management, staff, network and hosts sees my point. But when that time comes and people from Eat Bulaga didn’t thought about it and fell into Willie’s wicked pla, I’d rather suffer watch Vice Ganda sarcastically insult the audience or it’s co-hosts on the other channel.
Whitney Houston the House!
After the death of Whitney Houston, a day before 2012 Grammy’s Award, support and condolences from people all over the world flooded the TV, internet, newspaper, radio stations and even cellular phone provider’s advisory. It seems as if Whitney and his family will all read and heard those messages. Whitney has been a big lost to music industry. Her voice is even known as golden, which nobody can perfectly copy what it seems a bold, elegant and angelic note. But then due to depression and drug use, her career slammed after her highest rise to stardom, which made her an icon of almost all icons today. Since her death, videos, photos and news filling in every screen on cable TV. Even her former voice coaches, physicians she just visited once, hairdresser, and even those who had just bumped in with the golden voice singer would came out on TV and speaks out, gasping a scene and a little fame from the death of Whitney. After her burial, more hidden issues are unravelling, including her daughter, ex-hubby, parents, closest friends and millions of dollars assets and money she left.
Celebrated singer Whitney Houston news is overwhelming. Even at school where I fetch my toddler after his class, knows about her death. Even at fish market, I could hear gossips about Whitney. Every cable channel and internet search engine I visit, it is expectedly another Whitney update. It is as if Whitney Houston is in our house, or everywhere I go, she is there.
I would funnily remember Whitney Houston usually on Gay Pageants or Singing competitions. Gays will strut gorgeous gowns and cheap impersonations of Whitney, pretending they have same divacious, divalific (author’s own term for very and extreme Diva) and delightful voice (now, I am smiling for I did see pageants like these for a dozen times!) as Whitney herself; while in singing competitions, there would always an aspiring Whitney Houston (though I never heard anyone who can sing like Whitney, hehehe).
About Whitney’s wealth, in my own opinion, I have to say that her only daughter, Bobbi Christina and her mom deserve the money and all properties her mom left as well as those Whitney’s new album and story sales (who knows if there will be a movie about the diva’s life in the near future? Her life must be pretty interesting). Or may be a portion of Whitney’s money can be given to a foundation which helps celebrities like her, who lost their ways because they were either blinded by fame and fortune, surrounded by unhealthy people, oppressed by pressure and suppressed by depression and unruly expectations. Though actors like her have a lot of money already, but they should be helped first because once they became famous they also instantaneously became models (let us all admit it, people look up to them whether consciously or unconsciously). This is like helping yourself to effectively help others. In this case these celebrities may help people who watch them, live a good and righteous life (or may be even close to goodness).
Life is fair or unfair? Fair, my friend. When does it become unfair? When you decide to take the wrong road, you’ll end up going back to same path and start all over again; or worst, you’ll be stuck and that’s the end of it! I am not a bible person, but I compare Whitney’s situation with David. David was a great King but eventually got caught in a war and grief between his sons and daughter, as well as a result of wars of our nation today. It was David to blame. It was his decision scheme to kill Batsheba’s husband and take her as a wife. The result of his action is more sorrowful than you can imagine. To add insult to the injury he made, her daughter was raped by her own son! See? It’s a ripple of our action. Same way, Whitney did. Her bad actions claimed her life. Even her daughter’s upbringing becomes different from what should have been. God gave her such wonder voice, but then He took it back for a reason, which should send her a message of refreshing and coming back to Him. But she didn’t. With the wrong persons around Whitney, misleading guidance, unappreciative people around, and devious antidepressant drugs made her life more miserable. My heart breaks to know she is a Sunday school girl like Marilyn Monroe. They both end up dead, which makes me think, will they be meeting in heaven? Or hell? Demi Moore and Britney Spears almost got away from death. Now, they have the chance to turn around and redeem their selves, which Whitney wasn’t able to make. She tried to make a comeback but it hadn’t realized. I was still hoping she didn’t killed herself. Unlike Michael Jackson, after his controversial case and accusations in the past, he was able to perform and sold a lot of concert tickets and amazingly lined up huge concert tours before he passed away unexpectedly. Because, according to TMZ days before Whitney’s death she had been quoting creepy bible verses; which made me think if she did committed suicide. I speculate she had been murdered or her case was an isolated case of disgraceful accident due to unprescribed meds.
This is the irony of life, you can have everything in life but then you will still feel empty inside.
Wherever you are Whitney, I hope you did enter Heaven’s gate.
Where is Bruce Willis?
Before the heist on Whitney Houston’s death, there was Demi Moore’s infamous 911 emergency. It was believed she overdosed with illegally prescribed medicines, unhealthy diet pills, misuse of stress relieving drugs, and even delinquent teenager’s pleasure – ‘whip it!’. The actress had messy days after her divorce to his May-December husband, Ashton Kurton.
All the depression Demi had gone through, the media was frantic of how Demi’s recent ex-hubby’s outlandish partying. On the other hand, what was Demi’s ex-hubby, Bruce Willis’ reaction to Demi’s misdemeanour 911 incident?
I am just wondering.
Where is Bruce Willis? Again?
After Whitney Houston’s death, a dozen of times Bruce Willis’ name was mentioned on news and every talk show, but the veteran actor was a bit aloof with all the media pips. He was just seen on Whitney’s last funeral service at Hope Baptist Church, New Jersey. The tribute speech he rendered was a bit too touching and inspirational that everyone started to cry and weep in loss for Whitney.
After the big movie hit,’The Bodyguard’, where Bruce played as an endearing and knight bodyguard for Whitney’s character; he had only few movie appearances since then. I once watched on TMZ a year or two ago that the respectable actor, in spite of his doubted talent, he experience a struggle. I think ‘The Storm’ (I wasn’t that sure if that was the title because it was ages ago), was the last movie I had seen Bruce as a lead. I then found out that he concentrated pursuing his passion in music and formed a band, which I only seen once perform on TV. On Whitney’s death I thought Bruce will finally break his silent career and make some noise. But, he is such a gentleman as he is, he never used the death of his friend for his career’s jumpstart. As a former co-actor and a close friend to Whitney, the only interview with Bruce media can play on air regarding the singer is his past interviews. Surely he never took advantage of this chance.
