Blood is indeed thicker than water!
During the celebrity premiere of Lotlot de Leon’s movie “1st Sem”, her siblings came in full force!
Present in the event held in SM North EDSA Cinema 11 (last April 22) were Ian de Leon and siblings Matet, Kiko at Kenneth.
Because of this, Lotlot cannot contain her excitement and happiness.
“Nakakatuwa! Medyo matagal rin kaming hindi nagkasama na kumpleto na magkakapatid dahil may mga kanya-kanyang schedule.
“At first when I invited them, hindi ako nag-expect na kumpleto silang darating kasi nga baka may work or ibang lakad.
“But I am very happy and pleasantly surprised na lahat sila ay dumating,” a teary-eyed Lotlot said right after the screening.
Also present during the screening were Lotlot’s children Diego and Maxine Gutierrez. Lotlot’s daughter Jessica wasn’t able to come because of work, same with Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez, Lotlot’s eldest daughter, who was in Davao for a “Legally Blind” mall show in Bacolod City with Mikael Daez.
Lotlot’s dad, Drama King Christopher de Leon was in a taping while the Superstar Nora Aunor was in Singapore that night.
As of this writing, Lotlot is in Houston, Texas, USA where “1st Sem” is a finalist in the 50th Worldfest Houston International Film Festival.
The awards ceremony is April 30 although the festival runs from April 21-30. “1st Sem” had a run at The AMC Studio 30 (Dunvale Cinema) Houston April 26 @ 7pm.
Lotlot’s “1st Sem” co-stars include Darwin Yu, Miguel Bagtas, Sebastian Vargas, Marc Paloma and Sachie Yu.
Now showing in cinemas, the movie is under the direction of Dexter Hemedez and Allan Ibañez.
The movie is sponsored by Dannon Clothing.
Aside from this, “1st Sem” is also included in the 5th Seoul Guro International Kids Festival in South Korea. The festival is from May 23 ‘til May 30.
Lotlot is also busy with her restobar, The South Grill located @ 220 Aguirre Avenue, BF Homes Parañaque City.
Lotlot is also a regular cast member of “Destined To Be Yours” from GMA with Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards.
Speaking of Janine Gutierrez, the netizens are all agog in finding out if Rayver Cruz is courting the beautiful Kapuso actress.
As far as we know, the two are getting closer and closer… as friends!
Hectic schedules of the two stars might just be the reason why the two are not seeing each other regularly; Janine is super-busy with her tapings and out-of-town shows for GMA’s “Legally Blind” while Rayver is a busy Kapamilya star.
But this we know, most of the people close to the two are very much in favor of a JanVer (Janine and Rayver) team-up, be it reel or for real.
Both are tall, good-looking and are nice kids brought up by their parents well.
So if ever they end up having a (boyfriend/girlfriend) relationship, no one would disagree or stage a protest, so to speak.
The newest Calayan Surgicentre clinic is in Cebu and at the SM Lanang Premier in Davao and the soon-to-open Trinoma and Festival Mall- Alabang branch.
Aside from these, beauty doctors Manny and Pie host the 2nd season “2 of C The Difference” Saturdays at GMA NewsTV, from 11:30 am to 12 nn.
Their co-hosts in the show is their daughter Bernice Calayan and Bernice’s boyfriend Ral Javier.
Ral is also Marketing Head of the Calayan Surgicentre Corporation.
When asked if they would allow Bernice and Ral to walk down the aisle, Dr. Manny has this to say…
“Okay lang sa akin, pero sa tingin ko sa kanilang dalawa, career muna ang focus nilang pareho,” pahayag ni Dr. Manny.
Bernice is also a beauty doctor who finished Alternative Medicine in Sta. Monica College in California, USA last 2015.
The eldest daughter of Drs. Manny and Pie, Hannah, just graduated this April 29 with a degree in Medicine in Vancouver, Canada; she will then pursue a Medical Aesthetics Program this June also in Canada.
“Nakakatuwa na yung mga bata, kung ano ang path namin, iyon rin ang gusto nila.
“Hindi namin sila pinilit, sila ang mismong pumili kung anong field ang gusto nilang pasukin.”
Meanwhile the newest celebrity endorser of the Calayan Surgicenter is Miho Nishida.
“Mabait siya, nakakatuwa siya at malakas siya sa tao, kaya kinuha namin siya.
“And madali siyang kausap, pati yung mga taong namamahala ng career niya, ang ABS-CBN, okay naman sila lagi kausap.”
In an interview, Miho said that she is willing to undergo a breast augmentation procedure.
“Well, pag-uusapan namin, kung gusto niya, pag-usapan muna namin. Kami naman hindi porke gusto ng pasyente or ng endorser namin, sige, go na agad.
“Kailangang pag-usapan muna, kung ano ang pros and cons bago gawin ang isang procedure,” Dr. Manny said.
