Once more, Tropical Storm Mario wreaked havoc on the planned out-of-town schedule of the Miss World Philippines 2014 Official Candidates. Instead of leaving for the swimsuit competition in Caramoan Island, the ladies had to actually take a rain check and wait for the weather to improve. So as not to waste their time here in Manila, a TV guesting was added for the weekend where all twenty-six of them trooped to the GMA-7 studio of the musical variety show ‘Sunday All-Stars’ to promote the beauty competition. Two of the male hosts – Christian Bautista and Andre Paras – were able to interview some of the hopefuls, including Lorraine Kendrickson, Valerie Weigmann, Nicole Donesa, Alexa Kirby and Kristin Estoque, much to the delight of the pageant fans in the audience.

Tonmorrow night, “The Kitchen Musical” will air its’ Asian Premiere on the AXN Channel at 8:00PM. This innovative – genre busting if you will – production with a Pan-Asian cast revolves around the lives of people working in a fictional fine dining restaurant. The story is spiced up with a big helping of song-and-dance segments performed by a talented group of artists that include Filipino singers Karylle Tatlonghari and Christian Bautista plus US-based stage actor Arthur Acuna. They are joined by Stephen Rahman Hughes and Rosemary Vandenbrouke in completing the quintet of lead characters. The plot is anchored around the storyline of a rich young girl’s journey of self-discovery when she starts working in the kitchen of the restaurant, straight out of Le Cordon Bleu, Paris.
Watch the video below for a taste of the new show:

Tonight is the night for Cosmo Bachelor Bash 2010 at the World Trade Center. Gorgeous hunks. Rock-hard six-pack abs. Half-naked celebrities. What more could a girl (or swooning gay man) wish for? Yes, the annual event is intended for a strictly female audience but who’s to stop the rest when it’s the latter who can make sensational coverages (in print or online) of the same. But the question is, have you already scored tickets for the much-awaited fashion party of the year? Don’t ask me back because I’m still waiting for mine to arrive at the last minute! LOL! 😉
Aside from the image above of hot cover girl Andi Eigenmann with the Cosmomen supplement showing a shirtless Sam Milby with a live tiger from the photoshoot held at Zoobic Safari, here’s a preview of the other celebrities who will grace the catwalk at their sexiest…
Brapanese hunk and co-host of GMA-7's Comedy Bar Fabio Ide

Starstruck alumna and GMA-7 contract artist Rocco Nacino
ABS-CBN hotties: singer Guji Lorenzana ((L) and Pinoy Big Brother alumna Tom Rodriguez.
Fiercer-than-fierce: popular singer Christian Bautista
There’s going to be a lot more from where these guys will be stepping out from. So if you want to catch them in the flesh (pun intended), head over to World Trade Center tonight for Cosmo Bacleor Bash 2010. Just make sure you have tickets in hand! 😉

The Bench underwear show is one eagerly-anticipated event in Manila. Just imagine most, if not all, your favorite local TV & Film personalities walking down the ramp in their bikini briefs, short boxer shorts, laced bras and panties, scandalously-low denims and revealing blouses. Who wouldn’t be fired up? The bench/UNCUT : A Bold Look at the Future is all set for July 2, 2010, 7PM at the Araneta Coliseum. Since it’ll be a Friday, don’t worry about sleeping late that night. I doubt it very much, though, if you can sleep because you will fantasize about the show long after the whole thing is over.
Below are some of the showbiz personalities who will join the close-to-skinny affair…
For your viewing pleasure, here is a video teaser of bench/UNCUT:

So this early, try to score some tickets for the big show because it will definitely sell out like hotcakes. You can also get some from the large Bench outlets in your favorite malls nationwide.
See you all the Big Dome! 😉
