The Philippine Star: While his contemporaries (Mark Bautista, Christian Bautista, et al) have loosened up and thrown clothes and caution to the wind, Erik Santos insists that he’s not ready to pursue that “daring” direction yet, even if he’s marking his late 20s on 10-10-10. “Is anybody stopping me from going sexy?” Erik asks. “No. Basta wala pa lang ako sa kondisyon.” His advance birthday concert set for Sept. 24 and 25 at the Meralco Theater is titled The Power of One (with Regine Velasquez and the UP Singing Ambassadors as guests on both shows; and Martin Nievera and Rachelle Ann Go on the first night, and Piolo Pascual on the second night), so you wonder, where does his power emanate from? “My throat,” says Erik, joking. He means his singing voice, although his fans are convinced that Erik spices that up with his own brand of sex appeal. Will he show a little flesh in his show? “Well, there are ‘surprises’,” Erik promises. “You will be surprised.” Unlike Gary Valenciano who, observed Funfare readers, acted “dainty and demure” in a previous “sexy talk,” Erik is playful in a teasing way, not putting on a “saintly” posture at all.
The Philippine Star: He describes himself as a work in progress and he’s literally racing with time. “I still have to do a lot of racing,” said Marlon Stockinger, 20, who is half-Swiss and half-Filipino. “There’s so much to be done.” In 2008, Marlon finished third in Rookie Cup in the Formula BMW Pacific Championships and a year later, placed fifth in the Formula Renault UK Winter Series. Last year, he was first-placer in the Formula Renault in UK and last October, he landed among the Top 5 in the over-all standing in the GP3 series held around the Catalan Circuit in Barcelona, Spain. In fact, Marlon has been bringing home trophies and honors from prestigious championship races since 2006. Asked how many trophies he has bagged so far, Marlon broke into his Albert Martinez smile and said, humbly, “Honestly, I have lost count.” Yes, he could be mistaken for Albert. Why, they could have been separated at birth. They have the same height (“I’m 5’7”,” Marlon claimed, although he looked more petite than that), the same aura and the same boyish appeal that arouses the maternal instinct in women.
a YouTube video of him, showing the Mr Pogi 1996 segment of Eat Bulaga, I assume then that he started his career through this male beauty pageant and talent search. Wait, isn’t that the same year as Jericho Rosales’ Mr Pogi days? I have this thing for vintage Pinoy hotties, so I hope there’s anyone here who could refer me to where I could rent or buy movies from the old days. Isn’t he adorable?

this article from The Gay Life of VinVin, and it included a screenshot of his timeline (@GayLifeofVinVin) showing his conversation with @rhed19 who claimed that he was Mark Manicad’s classmate in their 6th grade through 1st year high school. Mark Manicad, a Mossimo Bikini Summit 2009 finalist, who confessed through Cosmo that he likes busty women (I like it when they wear tops with plunging necklines) laughed it off and denied the nasty rumors altogether. Anyway, I’m also experimenting on the Twit-world, so follow me @SimplyManila if you have anything to share with me. Thank you.

Boy Abunda: Carlos Agassi, DJ Durano and Eddie Garcia all revealed that they already have same-sex or gay experiences. These they declared during the presscon for their movie, “Praybeyt Benjamin.” The movie stars openly gay Vice Ganda and the press present had asked them naughty questions. Veteran award-winning actor Eddie Garcia shared: “In my younger years, siguro I was 15 years old. Kailangan lahat ng bagay sa mundo, kailangan mo subukan.” This emboldened actors Carlos Agassi and DJ Durano. DJ Durano even said that it is pleasurable!: “Kailangan may experience dahil masarap.” Carlos Agassi did not actually and categorically confirmed it, but you can read it between the lines. When Kean Cipriano was asked if he had experienced gay love too, he denied it, to which Carlos Agassi said: “Sasabihin ko, kawawa ka naman, Bro, ikaw lang ang hindi.” Derek Ramsey who is one of the lead male star of the movie was absent. Is he avoiding the question?! It would have been exciting to hear his take on this. Vice Ganda said he is glad with the honesty of the three and that everyone should respect what they have revealed: “Masaya, liberating ‘yon para sa kanila. Positibo talaga ‘yun kasi we should accept diversity, ‘di ba? Kailangan natin tanggapin ang pagkakaiba ng bawat isa at respetuhin natin ‘yon.”

Mykiru Isyusero (January 21, 2012): During the press conference for the Masculados Dos yesterday at the Dulcinea, Nico Cordova was the press favorite and stood out among the 7 members. Not surprising though because Nico, who just turned 21 last November, is the youngest and freshest of them all. Nico is currently not in a "serious" relationship right now. Apply kayo?
