SunStar: Former teen star Angelo Patrimonio, former Star Magic talent and the son of basketball superstar Alvin Patrimonio, was spotted at the Araneta Coliseum (to audition for TV5's Artista Academy). Angelo said he is starting all over again and his parents gave their blessings for him to re-enter showbiz after he finished college. He took Culinary Arts at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.
The 19-year-old is set to storm daily TV with a new drama series underway, which will see his team-up with fellow ex-housemate Yen Santos. Along with Santos, Reid will star in the latest in the "Precious Hearts Romances" series, titled "Pintada."
Reid, whose last on-screen role was in weekly drama series "Good Vibes," said he is excited to finally be working as an actor again. "I'm really excited. My last show was 'Good Vibes.' That was last year, so it's been a long time. My role here is Vito. He's like the love triangle of Martin (Del Rosario) and Yen," Reid said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
For his new role, Reid said he has continued studying how to speak Tagalog fluently, but admitted he is not yet conversant using the language. "Pwede, pero nahihirapan parin. Nag-aaral, private lessons sa bahay. Kasi nandito ako sa Pilipinas, kailangan, I really need to pick it up," Reid said.
The teen heartthrob also revealed that during his time off from acting, he has been "making music" with fellow "PBB" alumnus Bret Jackson. "I'm still making music now with Bret. It will be on MYX soon, [it's titled] 'Hope It's Soon,'" Reid said. Also starring actor Martin Del Rosario and actress Denise Laurel, "Pintada" is slated for a July premiere during ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold block.
Meanwhile, fans of the "PBB" series can catch the fourth teen edition of the reality show weekday afternoons on "Uber 2012" and "Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 4" during primetime.

PhilStar.com: Confirmed: Bench has just enlisted Liam Hemsworth as its newest endorser. The deal came on the heels of the brand’s recent acquisition as models such A-list stars as Joe Jonas (who was a recent Manila visitor to drum up for Bench); Michael Trevino (of hit US TV series The Vampire Diaries); Hollywood actress Lucy Hale; and Korean superstars Dong Hae and Si Won (of Super Junior). Bench has just also signed up a K-Pop superstar (subject of a Funfare blind item last week) whose identity Funfare is not yet authorized to reveal. The STAR did a one-on-one with the guy in Seoul two weeks ago. Bench boss Ben Chan was in L.A. last week to finalize the contract with Liam and supervise the pictorial for the Bench posters and billboards. Liam (the youngest among three brothers in Hollywood, the others are Luke and Chris who plays Thor in Avengers) played Gale Hawthorne in the recent hit The Hunger Games. He started his career in his native Australia by playing the role of Josh Taylor in the soap opera Neighbours and as Marcus on the children’s television series The Elephant Princess. In 2010, he starred in the American film The Last Song with Miley Cyrus with whom he is engaged. Born in Melbourne on Jan. 13, 1990, to Leonie, an English teacher, and Craig Hemsworth, a social-services counselor, Liam was quoted in interviews as saying that though there is competition for jobs with his brothers, “It is friendly; it pushes us and we are always happy whenever someone books something.”
Box of Recollections: Jay, a gay schoolteacher, is brutally murdered in an apparent sex-crime. Even before his family hears about it, a TV producer – also named Jay – and his camera crew are inside their house to document their shock and grief. The TV producer convinces the family to let him shoot the dead man’s wake and funeral for a “reality show”. This will help them to ferret out the truth about the crime, find the killer, and bring him to justice, he says. However, it soon becomes clear that this concept of “truth” owes much to the entertainment value of the material being shot, and the expectations of the television audience. Skillfully orchestrating this “reality show” is the dead man’s namesake – a “journalist” who knows that the “truth” is whatever works on camera. The writer-director’s insider’s knowledge of broadcasting informs his incisive satire, which hits home by making fun of journalistic practices that are too outrageous and shameless not to be true. But Jay– with its mise-en-abîmeof reality, dissolving into infinite layers of media images and vice-versa – is also a meditation on the ways in which the third world is produced everyday as a spectacle, and a reflection on audiences that want their entertainment to be as crazy as the reality they live in.
Inquirer: Teen heartthrob Ivan Dorschner was a good student when he took acting workshops at Gantimpala Theater recently. Among his mentors were Roeder Camañag (musical theater) and Nazer Salcedo (voice). A product of the “Pinoy Big Brother” reality search, Ivan insisted on commuting, riding jeepneys to and from the workshop venue. “He said he wanted to experience a normal life. He didn’t want to be treated like a celebrity,” said a Gantimpala insider. “He was also open, cooperative and a fast learner.” He bagged the role of Haring Fernando in his batch’s recital production of “Mga Awit ng Ibong Adarna.”
