Hail Queen Jen!

Hail Queen Jen!

Jennylyn Mercado bested nine other sexy girls to top this year’s FHM Sexiest list.  The starstruck alumna proves she’s at the top of her game as she took to the stage for the FHM 100 Sexiest victory party at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

The GMA-7 actress won the title for the first time after placing on the top ten of the FHM Philippines’ annual sexiest list several times in the last few years. She climbed to the top after placing fourth in last year’s list replacing perennial winner, GMA Royalty, Marian Rivera.
Apart from strutting the catwalk, the “English Only, Please” star also sang Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” and Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty.”
Completing the sexiest list top ten are Andrea Torres, Ellen Adarna, Sam Pinto, Solenn Heussaff, Angel Locsin, Jinri Park, Rachel Anne Daquis, Max Collins and Alodia Gosiengfiao.

Wild Kids?

What is up with kids these days? Teens Marc Gumabao and Andrea Brilliantes trended for all the wrong reasons this week.  Both ABS-CBN stars figured in separate viral photos that shocked Philippine showbiz and the internet at the same time.

Andrea Brilliantes currently stars as the younger sister of Daniel Padilla’s character in the hit remake of Pangako Sa Yo while Marc Gumabao is seen regularly in the weekly teen series LuvU.

For the sake argument, let’s say both viral photos are legit.  What could drive two seemingly innocent teens to pleasure themselves and take a photo of the deed? More importantly, where did those photos come from? Who leaked them to the public? What prompted the culprit to release the images that could possibly ruin the reputation and the lives of the two stars?

More than just the issue of the publicly released scandalous images, the bigger question is what is happening in our society today? What is causing these kids to behave in such alarming ways.

Brilliantes and Gumabao reacted differently to the supposed leaks with Brilliantes threatening to commit suicide in her Instagram account while Gumabao is categorically denying the guy in the photo was him by light-heartedly posting comments in his own IG account.

Earlier this week, Julia Buencamino,another ABS-CBN talent took her own life through hanging.  An unpublished social media posts later surfaced about the actress’ gender issues that could have prompted her to end her existence.

Truly, the price of fame is steep.
