We’ve done this before. We were stuck in traffic and decided to cast an all-Filipino ensemble for Twilight. So when I saw that there was going to be a Mexican Gossip Girl, I knew we had to cast our own Manila version!
Can you guess who’s who on Gossip Girl Acapulco? Now it’s time for Gossip Girl Manila. LOL. This isn’t actually happening, okay? We are in no way connected with these actors or Warner Bros. Just doing this for pure fun! No hating, please.
Blair – Lauren Young
Serena – Jessy Mendiola
Chuck – Enrique Gil
Nate – Ivan Dorschner
Dan – Daniel Padilla
Lily – Gretchen Barretto
Rufus – Richard Gomez
Daddy van der Woodsen – Albert Martinez
Dorota – Eugene Domingo
Eric – Teejay Marquez
Jenny – Julia Barretto
Vanessa – Maja Salvador
Blair’s minions – Anika Gonzales, Julia Montes, Kathryn Bernardo
We haven’t thought of their Filipino names, though. Got ideas? Got your own casting picks? Feel free to post in the comments below!
Another year, another idol.
American Idol is back on ETC this week to find its next big singing sensation. To add flavor and extra zing to the show, they’ve said goodbye to Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez (aww!) and added new judges to sit beside Randy Jackson namely Grammy Award-winning country crooner Keith Urban, rap superstar Nicki Minaj, and the one and only Mariah Carey (who is rumored to receive an $18 million paycheck!). I, for one, am excited to see if there is any truth to the Nicki and Mariah feud, hear how good or bad the new contestants are (especially during the first round of auditions), and watch how the judges will react to the odd/scary/annoying performances and/or personalities that enter the audition room.
Be sure to catch the two-day premiere of American Idol Season 12 on ETC this January 17, Thursday at 6 pm and 8 pm AND January 18, Friday at 6 pm and 9 pm. Don’t forget to share your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #aionetc and you might even win some cool AI goodies!
After Jessica Sanchez’s almost win last year (upsetting, I know!), do you think another half-Filipino will finally snag the AI title? Speaking of the young songbird, I had the opportunity to meet Jessica when she and the other AI 11 finalists came to Manila for a concert. We had such a lovely chat which prompted us to put her on the cover of our sister magazine, Total Girl. (Oh yes, I forgot to mention that I’ve been helping out with TG for the past two months–but that’s another story!) Have you seen it on the newsstands already? What do you think? I think someone approves.
Let me know what you think about AI’s newest season by sharing your thoughts below or tweeting me @nicetomitiu as the show airs on ETC.
Happy Sunday everyone!
I usually end up liking movies that were adapted from books. Maybe because I’m not such a stickler for accuracy. I kind of think of the book and the movie as two separate entities. I find that this way, I don’t get disappointed. Well, most of the time, anyway.
As for Life of Pi, I had no idea what it was about. I went into the cinema, not knowing what the book was about and I couldn’t even remember what happened in the trailer (I just remember a lot of water, a boat, and a tiger). I was in for a pleasant surprise.
I can tell you that it’s a story about survival and also a story about life. I can tell you it’s a story about belief and turning your faith into something that ultimately saves you. I can also tell you that it’s a story about finding your truth and choosing your reality. I can tell you a lot of things, but you need to see it for yourself to truly know what this movie will mean to you.
Also, you need to meet Richard Parker. (:
Catch Life of Pi in cinemas nationwide.
I love Christmas music. Whether it be the classics done by an orchestra or reimagined by punk bands and pop stars. Here are some of my favorites. Maybe you’ll find one that you can add to your holiday playlist!
She & Him’s “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”
Absolutely loved it when Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel had an impromptu duet in Elf. Been slowly collecting different versions of this song. (:
Belle and Sebastian’s “12 Days of Christmas”
I’m sure you’ve heard different versions of this tune, but I crack up at the strange sound effects in this one.
I know they’ve broken up (I can’t move on!), but this is still one of the sweetest Christmas songs I’ve ever heard. <3
I hope you have a meaningful Christmas with your family. Spread the love and holiday cheer!
Plus points if the song is as epic, grand, sweeping as the title.
“My Tears Are Becoming A Sea” by M83 a.k.a. the ultimate fangirl anthem
“I Died So I Could Haunt You” by Stars. IDEK. Stars has a lot of cool, very specific song titles, but I think this one takes the cake.
“Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” by John Mayer. 4:30 to 6:05 gets me every time.
I'm not a K-Pop fan and I've never watched any Koreanovelas, so when my friends decided to go to Korea for our next barkada trip, I was only moderately excited. But after spending...
