Sexiest Actor 2011

Every year, we love to name who we think are the sexiest celebrities and TV personalities in town. This year, so far, we have named the Sexiest Couple, Sexiest Beach Body, Sexiest Newcomer and Sexiest Male Athlete. Now that the year is coming to an end, we are unveiling more smoldering mortals who made the pages of our magazines blistering with fire, our TV screens glazing with allurement, and our silver screens awakening our voyeuristic tendencies. Due mainly to the success of the movie No Other Woman, we came into the conclusion that this year’s sexiest actor is no other than Derek Ramsay. Though he appeared mainly as the movie’s male accessory, we could not deny the fact no one could have fitted perfectly to the role he played as a vulnerable husband who got momentarily smitten by the flirtatious other woman. Every girl in Manilatown could go easily head over heels in love with the guy, if only he’s single and available. For so many other reasons, he is our indubitable Sexiest Actor this year.

Luis Manzano And His Haters

If there’s any poster boy for the most hated celebrity on Twitter, here thinks it will be Luis Manzano. The Pilipinas Got Talent host has embraced the 140-character-or-less format of Twitter, using the site to bash out haters every chance he gets. Here’s wondering how this semi-talented actor got so bitter with his life. Unfortunately for the people who lives in Lipa, Batangas, Luis Manzano seems like he’s on his way of filing his candidacy as mayor, emulating the footsteps of his successful mom, ex-Lipa mayor and now Batangas governor Vilma Santos. Here’s hoping he wont share the same fate as his dad whose dreams of entering the dirty world of politics shattered when he lost in the vice presidential race recently. Though for someone with nothing glowing in his political résumé and only relied mostly on his popularity as a staple TV personality to win votes, here could only imagine that the defeat didn’t really hurt that much. Simply Manila wishes you luck, Luis. And while we really don’t take pleasure by watching you getting stressed out by your haters on Twitter, we thank you for keeping all of us updated no matter how lame your tweets are sometimes.

Next Attraction: The Escort

The Escort

No Words Can Describe

I honestly don't feel like blogging lately, not because I have nothing to share, in fact, I have loads of stuff in my head and I could use a good diversion like this. So the main reason why I don't even want to use my computer is because the new LCD I purchased is too big and I can't seem to adjust the resolution of its screen, so I feel like a high school student writing on a first grader pad paper. I'm thinking that it's about time for me to purchase a new Mac computer but I still don't know if I will go for a lappy or get a decent desktop, and it's just something I want to really decide on. So, anyway, it's been a long time since my last thank you post and this is the first in more than a month. I would like to thank all the people who recently visited Simply Manila even with the lack of updates and all. No words can describe how I am truly grateful. See the most viewed posts, top search keywords and visiting countries after the jump. Ciao for now.

The private life of Carlos Agassi

During the press con of Praybeyt Benjamin last September 28, Carlos Agassi revealed that he had engaged in a gay relationship during his teens. The 32 year-old further shared that he never opened up about it before since no one dared to ask him about such a sensitive issue including his family and friends. “Mapili ako sa kaibigan e. Ang pinaka itinuring kong pamilya ko ay yung family ko talaga. So I guess they know, but they never talked to me directly the way [the press people] are talking to me about it now.”
