Eat Bulaga has now an Indonesian version


MANILA, Philippines – While local networks are the ones that usually acquire franchise of international programs, reports have it that an Indonesian network has done the same for Philippine noontime variety show “Eat Bulaga!”
The Indonesian version of “Eat Bulaga!,” which bears the same title, officially premiered on July 16.
According to a post on PEP Alerts, the deal between Surya Citra Televisi (SCTV) and the “EB” management was sealed in June; this, after talks that began two months prior. But according to Harsiwi Achmad, SCTV director of programs and production, the network had wanted to meet with the “EB” bigwigs since five years ago.
Similar to the original “EB,” the Indonesian version will be filled with entertainment, games, prizes, and inspiration. Segments were also patterned on the local version, such as “Indonesia Pintar” (“Pinoy Henyo”), “One For All, All For One,” “Bolagaan,” and “Karaoke Stud.” One of the original show’s core hosts, “Bossing” Vic Sotto, also has his Indonesian counterpart: Uya Kuya, who is called “Boss Uya.”
Even the “dabarkads”—the collective term for the “EB” hosts—has an equivalent in the Indonesian show: “bulagang.”
A post on popular blog site chuvaness.com quoted Achmad as saying, “We want this program to be a success like in the Philippines, where it has been running for the past 33 years.”
He also noted that they are not adapting the Philippine version 100% but will “format in accordance with the state and introduce positive values, environmental campaigns, and sharing with others.”
Joining Uya Kuya as host of “EB” Indonesia are Aja Farid, Reza No, Ramzi, Narji, Ciripa, Rian Ibram, Rio Indrawan, Steven, Leo Consul, Selena Alexandria, Jenny Tan, Bianca Lizza, and Julie Christie.
Original “EB” producer and TAPE Inc. big boss Tony Tuviera is proud and thrilled over the historical achievement of the show.
"Today marks another milestone for ‘Eat Bulaga’ as the first international franchise of our show will be launched at 4 p.m. in Indonesia...," he was quoted as saying in a statement.

National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) to discuss possible National Artist award for Dolphy


MANILA, Philippines – National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Commissioner Sorsogon Representative Salvador Escudero III on Monday said that they were sure to tackle the possibility of awarding the national artist title to the late Rodolfo Vera Quizon Sr., more popularly known as Dolphy.
He told Radyo Inquirer 990AM during an interview that the members of the NCCA would meet to discuss the merits of bestowing the title to the King of Comedy and send their recommendation to President Benigno Aquino III.
A posthumous award for Dolphy should be prioritized and could be given within the year, said Escudero who however could not determine how long the process would be before they could actually proclaim the late comedian as a national artist.
But as far as the NCCA commissioner knew, Dolphy had no contender for the award.
Escudero who chairs the House committee on basic education and culture, was earlier directed by Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. to ensure that House Resolution 2404, which seeks to declare Dolphy as a national artist, be tackled once the 15th Congress resumes its work by July 23.

Dolphy's advice to Vandolph


Many controversies ago, I wrote a scoop about Vandolph’s lovechild with my friend long before he met his wife Jenny. Things were still messy back then.
When I saw Tito Dolphy and Vandolph at a party, I thought Tito Dolphy would reprimand me for what I wrote. But ever the gentleman that he was, he even told Vandolph to settle matters with my friend.
Van heeded his Dad’s advice and fulfilled his fatherly obligations to Gabie, who’s now 11 years old.  His wife, Jen, loves Gabs like her own.
At the wake of Tito Dolphy, Van never left Gabs’ side and accompanied her to have one last look at her Lolo. They kept hugging each other. The father and daughter were each other’s source of comfort.
I’m happy that in my own little way I was able to pave the way for Vandolph to acknowledge Gabie’s existence. And now their bond is rock solid. I can’t help but smile because things turned out the way Tito Dolphy wanted it to be.
Celebrity slots challenge
I immensely enjoyed Pagcor’s 1st Celebrity Slots Challenge for Charity at the Airport Casino Filipino Paranaque.  As they say, if you’re unlucky in love, you’re lucky in gambling.
So since Cupid has reached his quota in my heart, I was hoping Lady Luck would be with me that night to even up the score.
The event was hosted by Bianca Gonzales and Drew Arellano. Pagcor’s VP for Entertainment Bong Quintana warmly welcomed us.  Other celeb participants were  Richard Yap aka Papa Chen, Tirso Cruz, Tonton Gutierrez, Vivian Velez, Vince and Patricia Hizon, Anthony Suntay, Pooh, Iwa Moto, Jay-R, Marina Benipayo, April Bustillo aka Congratulations, Nina Jose, Krista Kleiner, Carlos Agassi, Paloma, Keanna Reeves, Aubrey and Troy Montero.
I teased Jay-R if he’s trying to woo Krista back since they were seated together in one table.
“Nope there’s no talk of reconciliation,” he quipped. “We have a lot of other priorities but our communication lines remain open.”
I chided Iwa to have her pic taken with Papa Chen since he’s paired off on TV with Jodi Santamaria, who’s the ex of her boyfriend, Pampi Lacson. Papa Chen came with his fab wife, Melody who’s a flight stewardess.
The big winner was April, who took home P150,000 plus P200,000 for her chosen charity, Child Haus. She lived up to her monicker, “Congratulations.”
Even if I didn’t win, my first-time experience to play at the Casino was exhilarating enough to make me feel like a champ.
Light moment
A light moment during Tito Dolphy’s wake was when the dad of Boy 2 Quizon said in jest “Dumalaw na si Rufa Mae Quinto. Pero di ata sila nagpansinan ni Boy 2 kasi baka may magalit na ibang girls na dumalaw din (Ruffa Mae Quinto visited, but she and Boy 2 ignored each other because other girls who visited might get angry).” Having a great sense of humor truly runs in their family.
Kris Bernal’s b-day
Kris Bernal celebrated her 23rd birthday with a bang at Seventh High on Bonifacio High Street at The Fort. Spotted in her fete were Kylie Padilla, Bella Padilla, Chariz Solomon, Lexi Fernandez, Mikee Bustos and John Lapus.
A mini press conference was held right outside The Club of the “in” party place. Kris was surprised with a video of Aljur Abrenica sending his sweetest wishes. That sure beat all the birthday kisses combined.

Five to follow the footsteps of Dolphy: "Comedy Princes"



Whether or not he will still get the posthumous recognition he deserves as National Artist, Dolphy without question had already cemented his legacy as an entertainment icon without peer.
There will never be another one like him. But there are younger talents who will carry on the comic tradition that he will always be remembered for.
There could be a case made for each of our Top 5 in terms of who among them are the true heirs to the King of Comedy’s throne. Or at the very least, who will make us laugh the most in the years to come.
The same can be said for those who did not quite make the cut but deserve special mention, including Joey De Leon and Willie Revillame, among a few more others.
But even as none of them could ever come close to what Dolphy has achieved in over six decades of tickling the entire nation’s funnybone, we can be sure that at least each one will sustain the smile in our faces now that the legendary comedian has answered the call slip of his “Director, Writer and Producer” in heaven.
Dolphy himself wouldn’t have it any other way. The show must indeed go on.

5. VHONG NAVARRO
Starting his career as a member of the all-male dance group, the Streetboys, Vhong has since carved a niche as a comedian and through both his films and comedy recordings has created sketches of such unforgettable characters as Totoy Bibbo, Don Romantiko (from the movie, “D’ Anothers”), Chickboy (from his film, “Agent X44”) and Supah Pappalicious.
Vhong remains a hot commodity of ABS-CBN as host of the noontime talent show, “It’s Showtime,” and as Justin Bibbo in the sitcom, “Toda Max.” He last starred in Star Cinema’s horror-comedy “Bulong” opposite Angelica Panganiban.

4. OGIE ALCASID
Although primarily known as an award-winning singer-songwriter, Ogie has also been making us laugh for only the past 20 years as mainstay of the long-running gag show, GMA Network’s “Bubble Gang” and before that ABC 5’s “Tropang Trumpo.”
He doesn’t appear in movies as often as the others but he almost always do well in the box office when he does as in the case of this year’s “Boy Pick-Up: The Movie” and before that, 2009’s “Yaya and Angelina: The Spoiled Brat Movie,” both based on popular sketches from “Bubble Gang.”

3. JOSE AND WALLY
Like Dolphy and Panchito before them, Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola are emerging as the country’s top comedy duo. Although they probably look more like Pugo and Tugo, they certainly are the most sought-after tandem in the live circuit and almost stole the show from the talented OPM superstars that topbilled the recent “Icons at the Mall of Asia Arena” concert.
In addition to their regular appearance on “Eat Bulaga”, they are also the stars of their own weekly sitcom on TV5, “The Jose and Wally Show starring Vic Sotto” and will finally headline their own movie, “Sa ‘Yo Ang Pritil, Akin Ang Bangkusay”.
Jose seems to be the Dolphy in the duo and Wally the Panchito. But until either of them proves his worth as a solo act, they will have to share this place in this Top 5.

2. MICHAEL V.
More than just a bosom buddy of Ogie Alcasid, not a few people consider the comic also known as Bitoy as the funniest man in the country. Many in fact see him as the heart and soul of “Bubble Gang” where he has created such unforgettable characters as Yaya, Pepito Manaloto, Mr. Assimo, Bureche and M.C. Bits, among many others.
His parody songs such as “Sinaktan Mo Ang Puso Ko” (You’ve Hurt My Heart), “Hindi Ako Bakla” (I’m Not Gay) and “Sabog Sabog Tayo” are worthy successors to  the irreverent “Tough Hits” Tito, Vic and Joey pioneered in the late ’70s.
Although he continues to headline his own top-rated shows at GMA, much of Michael V’s success in films have come while playing sidekick to Ogie Alcasid and Vic Sotto. Which brings us now to….

1. VIC SOTTO
Even at 57, Bossing continues to enjoy a ladies’ man reputation just like Dolphy before him as he continues to be linked with his co-stars, most recently with Pauleen Luna with whom he has reportedly broken up and TV5 princess Niña Jose, who continues to fondly refer to him as a close friend.
Reps aside, there’s a reason why the “Enteng Kabisote” films rule the Metro Manila Film Festivals almost every year. Even with many pretenders to the throne, Vic Sotto is the only comedian today whose box-office appeal can compare to Dolphy’s.
Bossing has not only been honored as Box Office King for a record eight times by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Entertainment Awards, he has also received recognitions for his sitcoms and TV hosting stints, the most recent of which was as Most Trusted TV Host Presented during the recent Readers Digest Trusted Brand Consumer Survey for 2012.
Oh, and it’s also worth mentioning that “Dobol Trobol: Let’s Get Redi 2 Rambol!” his only movie with the Comedy King, was Dolphy’s last big hit at the box office, grossing over P90 million in its entire theatrical run.
A fitting passing of the torch? Vic has no such illusions.
In his endorsement of the Comedy King’s biography “Dolphy: Hindi Ko Ito Narating Mag-isa” in 2008, he said: “Sa dami ng pinagdaanan ng Dolphy, maraming bigas pa ang kakainin ng sino mang humahabol. E may rice shortage. Paanong maaabutan?”

Dolphy sings "What A Wonderful World"




PolyEast Records, the company that produced Dolphy’s 2010 album “Handog ni Pidol: A Lifetime of Music and Laughter”, released on Saturday a music video of the Comedy King singing “What A Wonderful World”.
The video, which runs for four and a half minutes, features Dolphy during the vocal recording for his version of Louie Armstrong’s famous plaintive ballad.
The song is one of the tracks in “Handog ni Pidol”, a realization of Dolphy’s longtime dream  to record a solo album.

Erap gives Dolphy the "Peoples Artist Award"


Former President Joseph Estrada gave Dolphy a “People’s Artist Award” during the necrological service for the fallen comedian on Friday night at the Heritage Park chapel in Taguig.
Zsa Zsa Padilla, Dolphy’s partner for the last 23 years, received the award from Estrada, who had called for the conferment of the National Artist award on Dolphy in the weeks leading up to the latter’s death on Tuesday.
Estrada said he gave the award on behalf of the non-profit group Dakilang Lahi Foundation to compensate for the present administration’s failure to honor Dolphy with the National Artist award.
“The National Artist award for Dolphy is long overdue. Nalungkot ako nang hindi naibigay ‘yon sa kanya habang buhay siya,” he told reporters.
Estrada joined Dolphy’s colleagues from Sampaguita Pictures and the sitcom “John en Marsha” in paying tribute to the Comedy King.
Like Dolphy, Estrada began his acting career in the 1950s, although he was a contract star of Sampaguita’s rival studio, LVN Pictures.
In his eulogy, he joked that he and Dolphy shared one vice, meaning their weakness for beautiful women.
Naturally, it drew laughs from the crowd of celebrity mourners that included Susan Roces, Robert Arevalo, Barbara Perez, Eddie Gutierrez, Bella Flores, Celia Rodriguez, and German Moreno.
Moreno praised Dolphy’s portrayals of gay characters in movies like “Jack en Jill”, “Facifica Falayfay”, and “Ang Tatay Kong Nanay” and said they helped Filipinos accept homosexuality.
Kaye Torres spoke on behalf of her late mother Nida Blanca, Dolphy’s leading lady in “John en Marsha”. She said she is happy that Dolphy, whom she considered her second father, and Nida are now together in heaven.
Meanwhile, Eric Quizon has announced that his father’s burial on Sunday will be a private affair and only relatives and friends of the family will be let inside Heritage Park. He advised the public to just watch the event live on television.
Dolphy’s casket will be transported on a horse-drawn carriage to his tomb inside the memorial park, some 100 meters away from the chapel.

Eric Quizon thanks Manny Pangilinan (MVP) for shouldering Dolphy's hospital bills


Eric Quizon thanked TV5 chairman Manny V. Pangilinan on Saturday for footing his father’s bill at the Makati Medical Center where Dolphy was treated for 31 days before he succumbed to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on Tuesday.
“He took care of my dad’s hospital bills. Thank you, Boss Manny,” Eric, the Quizon family’s spokesperson, said in an interview with the GMA gossip show “Startalk”.
Prompted by interviewer Ricky Lo that it was MVP’s birthday, Eric acknowledged that it was in fact the TV5 chairman’s 66th.
“Pero sa halip na siya ang tumanggap, siya pa ang nagbigay ng regalo sa pamilya namin,” Eric said.
Mr. Pangilinan is the chairman of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation, which owns and operates the Makati Medical Center through its affiliate, Medical Doctors, Inc.
On Wednesday, during the necrological service hosted by ABS-CBN, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Dolphy’s partner for the last 23 years, thanked the TV5 management for continuing to pay Dolphy’s salary throughout the remainder of his life despite being unable to work since November last year.
Pangilinan said the gesture was ”a way of demonstrating to Mang Dolphy and to the family we’re there for him. If he could fight his illness and get him back, that was a tangible way of telling him, ‘please come back, get well and recover fully.’”
In his eulogy on Thursday, he called Dolphy “a Filipino in the truest sense and, at bottom, a kind and generous man.”
He also thanked the Comedy King for portraying his uncle Jesus in TV5′s first film venture, “Rosario”, which was based on the life of his grandmother.
During the necrological service hosted by TV5, the Quizon family paid tribute to the medical staff that took care of their patriarch during his month-long stay at Makati Med’s intensive care unit.
Dolphy will be buried at the Heritage Park on Sunday.

Brod Pete's Eulogy for Dolphy- Funny Video



Dolphy's legacy in making Filipinos laugh


COMEDY king Dolphy fought the good fight to survive his many illnesses last month but, just as it appeared that he was on his way to recovery, he expired shortly before his 84th birthday. He left not just his loved ones, but the entire nation in a state of stunned bereavement, and he will be sorely missed.
Now that he’s passed away, we who mourn his loss should honor him in various ways. Today, our way is to share our thoughts on why Dolphy was so special and why he was so universally loved.
Rare combination
It isn’t just because he was a funnyman—after all, many popular comedians have left us without causing such grief. In our view, it’s due to his rare combination of personal and professional qualities, never before distilled and instilled in a single performing artist.
First, the professional aspect of Dolphy’s career arc and filmography: He did many things in the course of his career, but consistently chose roles that projected him as the local movie screen’s Everyman.
Thus, he “represented” the “ordinary” viewers watching and fully empathizing with him in the dark. In effect, therefore, he forged a personal bond with his viewers, who lived, loved, laughed and cried along with the characters he portrayed.
Next, he made sure, in his choice of roles, to play a wide range of people, so predictability, satiety and boredom wouldn’t stultify his performances, and his hold on viewers.
Yes, his gay characters were among his most popular rib-ticklers, but he also portrayed the quintessential Filipino Everyman, John Puruntong—and a veritable grinning gallery of other types—the Pinoy version of James Bond, spoofs of cowboys, a gender-bending Darna, and localized takes on foreign film hits, trendy TV commercials, popular  songs—etc.
Dolphy reigned as the country’s King Comic for many decades because he had his ear on the ground and his finger on the pulse of viewers’ changing interests and fads. To him, the worst sin a performer could commit was to rest on his laurels.
That’s why he was loved, not just by loyal oldtimers, but by successive generations of viewers. Yes, he was old, but certainly not over the hill, because even young people could relate to his jokes—because he made it a point to relate to them.
An added “bonus” is the fact that Dolphy was famous for his, ah, admiration of beautiful women. Not drop-dead handsome himself, he “won” some of the loveliest ladies on the silver screen—and gave the “ordinary” guys in the audience yet another fantasy made flesh to vicariously empathize with!

DOLPHY. When comes such another?
—Imagine, the movies’ most colorful and psychedelic portrayer of flaming fairies was in fact a ladykiller of “deadly” repute and achievement? Amazing.
On Dolphy’s appeal as a person rather than a performer, what stood out was his genuine humility. He performed not to boost his stock as a star, but to make his viewers happy.
Aside from his performances, he was also innately generous, making a point of sharing his “blessings” and “paying it forward” to help a number of beneficiaries. Some observers say that he was sometimes too generous that he spoiled some recipients of his bounty in the process, but you certainly couldn’t fault the man for his innate impulse to help and share.
All of these diverse qualities and impulses made Dolphy Dolphy, hence the love and bereavement currently being expressed by a grieving nation. —When comes such another?

Dolphy- "A quiet thoughtful man who loved steak and chocolate cake"


MANILA, Philippines — “Comedy King” Dolphy or Rodolfo Quizon in real life was a quiet and thoughtful man who loved steak and chocolate cake, his personal nurse for three years described him.
“Out of the blue he will deliver a punchline but most of the time he is quiet. I have never seen him angry,” Melissa Barangas said in an interview Friday over Radyo Inquirer 990AM.
Barangas said Dolphy was very thoughtful who, like the rest of his family, treated her like a relative.
Last year, Barangas said she took a leave of absence because she got sick. She said Dolphy would send her fruits and would check on her condition.
Dolphy, she said, loved watching movies and would even fall asleep with the television on.
He also loved to eat, especially steak and chocolate cake.
“He likes to eat out. He does that every day. He even went to his favourite restaurant along Bocobo Street in Manila to eat chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream,” Barangas said.
She recalled that at the height of typhoon “Ondoy”, Dolphy insisted on going out but the driver went out first to check the roads but got stranded.
Barangas said she saw a lot of Dolphy’s celebrity friends but was shy to ask for the actor-comedian and his friends’ photos.
“Ma’am Zsazsa [Padilla] gave me [a] camera. Sir Dolphy called me and said that we should have our pictures taken.”
“When he was at the intensive care unit, I told him sorry, ‘Sir I know this is difficult for you but you need this to get better,’” she said.
“I do not know if I can still work as a personal nurse for other people. Rarely can you find someone as nice as him as well as his family,” Barangas said.

My battle is about to start - Zsa Zsa Padilla


MANILA, Philippines – After staying by the side of Comedy King Dolphy as he battled chronic obstructive pulmonary disease for years, singer Zsa Zsa Padilla said her battle is just starting after they brought the actor to his final resting place on Sunday.
“When my friends would come and console me sa hospital pa lang, I would tell them I’m actually very strong but I know that this is not my fight, this is not my battle. Kay Dolphy pa iyon. My battle actually starts kapag nailibing na siya,” Padilla said in an exclusive interview with “The Buzz,” which was taped days before the actor’s burial on Sunday.
Padilla said it already pains to imagine life without Dolphy by her side.
“Para kanino ka gumigising? 'Yun 'yung masakit,” she told host Boy Abunda as tears welled in her eyes.
Padilla shared she once told her sister that she would not know how to move on with life when Dolphy leaves.
“In one of the times na na-ER si Dolphy, tumawag ako sa kapatid ko. Sabi ko sa kanya ‘Ate sa palagay ko mahihirapan ako kapag nawala na si Dolphy dahil talagang 'yung buhay namin for so many years nakapaligid sa kanila.’ Hindi ko na alam kung ano ang gagawin ko. All of a sudden, he’s gone,” she said.
Padilla, however, believes she would be okay because she is sure that Dolphy will look after her from heaven.
“Alalayan mo lang ako kasi ayaw kong mangyari 'yung nangyari sa akin noon na hindi na ako bumabangon sa kama,” she said.
Their relationship in the past 23 years may have been the subject of intrigues, but Padilla said she would forever love Dolphy for everything that they have shared together.
Now that he is gone, Padilla said she would always remember that moment when Dolphy told her “I love you.”
She is also hoping that she would again feel Dolphy’s presence. “I really wish I would feel his presence. I want a hug. I really miss him,” she said.
Asked how she said goodbye to her long-time partner, Padilla said: “Parati kong sinasabi, 'Come home to Jesus' and parati kong ina-assure na okay kami. Huwag mo kaming intindihin, okay lang kami. Binubulong ko na alam ko naman kapag nagpunta ka sa langit, hindi mo kami pababayaan lahat. Sinasabi ko na do not be afraid, come home to Jesus, we’ll be okay.”
Padilla also said she now understands why Dolphy had to stay inside the hospital for more than a month.
“Yung tagal niya sa ICU naiintindihan ko na kung bakit nangyari iyon. Kasi talagang maging united kami bilang isang pamilya, with 17 of his children dahil iyon ang gusto niya eh,” she said.
Dolphy was rushed to the Makati Medical Center on June 9 and was confined at the hospital's intensive care unit until his death last Tuesday.

Zsa Zsa said: "I don't know if I will be able to let go of Dolphy"


MANILA, Philippines—“I don’t know if I will be able to let go of Dolphy,” Zsa Zsa Padilla, the common-law wife, said in an interview with reporters Thursday at the public viewing of Dolphy’s remains at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City.
“I have a lot of friends who went through the same loss of a mother, of a father, of a partner, and sabi nila it really just gets harder,” Padilla added.
Padilla said that members of their family were having a hard time but that they were trying their best to cope with the loss of a loved one.
“Alam ninyo the past few years nakasentro ang aming mga schedule at lakad kay Dolphy. Pag magbabakasyon kami talaga namang iniisip namin kung kailangan naming bumalik. Kadalasan nakikiusap kami sa family member kung pwedeng magbantay kung kailangan naming ng konting break,” Padilla said.
“Naninibago kami na hindi na naming kailangan i-consider yung ganong bagay,” she added.
Padilla said that Dolphy tried his best to mouth the words “I love you” to her during his last hours. She said that up to the last minute, she was being “makulit” with Dolphy by saying “Lovie, lovie, I love you.”
She said that she knew that Dolphy did not want to let go for he loved his family and the Filipino people.
“ Alam ko yung pagkatao niya talaga kaya nga hirap na hirap siyang umalis sa mundo dahil sa sobrang pagmamahal,” she said.
“Kaya palagi naming sinasabi lovie okay lang kami huwag mo kaming intindihin. I know that up there in heaven you will guide us. Nararamadaman ko naman yun na ituturo niya kami,yung mga mahal niya sa buhay sa tamang direksyon,” Padilla said.
Padilla said that she continued to say goodnight to Dolphy and that Dolphy was blessed to have a wonderful children and family members who loved him dearly.
She said that the members of the family drew strength from one another during the trying times.
“We’re constantly texting each other and assuring each other that we will always be around for each other,” Padilla said.
She said that though it was still hard to accept what happened, the family would try its best to move forward.
“”I think It’s a process. Kung kailangan mag grieve counsel gagawin naming as a family,” she said.
She described her relationship with Dolphy as an “unconventional” one and that if there was one thing she wished Dolphy could have done, it would be to “travel to Hongkong.”
“Wala namang pinagsisishan kung hindi siguro mga wish pa . He wanted to go to Hongkong  to travel and eat,” she said.
She said that she was truly grateful for the Filipino people for the overwhelming love and support for the family.
