    Chinese edition of 'The Apprentice'

    Hong Kong, Aug 21 (AFP) - American property tycoon Donald Trump is planning a Chinese edition of his US hit reality television show "The Apprentice".

    "China is going to have its own version of 'The Apprentice'," Trump told the Sunday Morning Post in an interview.

    In the US version of "The Apprentice", which has been broadcast in 80 countries around the world, 16 contestants compete for a one-year job with the Trump Organization, with a 250,000-dollar salary.

    The billionaire real estate tycoon rejects losing contestants with his catchphrase, "You're Fired".

    "There have been 11 (unofficial) copies of 'The Apprentice' and every one of them has failed," Trump said in an apparent swipe at his Hong Kong business partner Vincent Lo, whose "Wise Man Takes All" features Chinese contestants who pitch business plans to win one million yuan (123,000 dollars) as start-up capital.

    The Chinese version of "The Apprentice" is set to further sour relations with Lo, whom Trump is suing for 1.76 billion US dollars for allegedly underselling a plot of prime land in New York's Manhattan.

    Trump has also tried to freeze the proceeds from the sale made by Lo and his another partner Henry Cheng, both Hong Kong property developers.

    "Copying is the greatest form of flattery, I guess. I am actually a little surprised that Vincent Lo didn't try and make a deal to be on 'The Apprentice', which would have been very good - but he didn't do that.

    "He chose not to do that, I guess," Trump said but declined to comment on his legal row with Lo.

    Citing the show's producers, the Post said the move to release a
    Trump-authorised Chinese version of the show had been under negotiation for several months and was close to being clinched.

    Although details about the Chinese edition were sketchy, producers said it would be close to the original version. They declined to reveal when and where the show would be produced.

    Trump said the show would be fronted by 41-year-old Beijing real-estate mogul Pan Shiyi, who was recently described by the New York Daily News as a short-haired Chinese Trump.

    He founded SOHO China, one of the most successful property development companies in China. Rivals have nicknamed "Naughty Boy" for painting an apartment complex in bold colours rather than the official grey, the newspaper said.

    British tycoon Richard Branson, fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and
    billionaire NBA team owner Mark Cuba have all launched imitations of the business reality show.

    Raven-haired Longoria was doing well on Thursday and was expected to return to work for the next day of filming the sexy, top-rated network drama, ET said.

    Actress Scarlett Johansson hits car while evading paparazzi
    Date: 8/24/2005 9:21:13 AM

    Los Angeles, Aug 23 (AFP) - US actress Scarlett Johansson drove into a car in Disneyland's parking lot last week as she was trying to evade paparazzi who had followed her from her Hollywood home, The Los Angeles Times said Tuesday.

    Johansson, 20, was driving down a highway in a Mercedes with two friends Thursday when she noticed that she was being followed by four sport utility vehicles, said her publicist Marcel Pariseau, according to the LA Times.

    The star of "The Island" and "Lost in Translation" paid the 10-dollar parking fee to get into Disneyland's lot but was still being followed, Pariseau said. As she tried to elude the SUVs, she swerved into another car carrying a mother and her two children, he said.

    No one was hurt in last week's accident, the newspaper said. Police said they were not investigating the incident because no police report was filed.

    "(The) four SUVs surrounded the accident," Pariseau was quoted as saying. "She saw one photographer come out of his car and start snapping away."

    According to the Times, Arnold Cousart, co-owner of JFX Direct photo
    agency, said two of his photographers had been following Johansson for four days and had tracked her to Disneyland, along with at least one other photographer from a rival agency.

    But he said the photographers were not near the accident.

    "She was basically by herself," he was quoted as saying. "There wasn't any car behind her closer than 40 yards (36 meters)."

    In June, police and prosecutors in Los Angeles said they were mulling whether to slap tough conspiracy charges on paparazzi who endanger Hollywood stars while trying to snap photographs.

    The move came after movie starlet Lindsay Lohan was injured in May when a photographer allegedly intentionally crashed into her car to photograph her. The photographer was arrested.

    Another actress, Reese Witherspoon, said paparazzi chased her car and hemmed her in to snap photos of her in April, but an investigation was recently dropped due to lack of evidence.

    A worldwide debate over whether tough penalties and restrictions should be slapped on paparazzi followed the death of Britain's Princess Diana while she was pursued by photographers in Paris in August 1997.

    Pepsi '349' claimants talo sa kaso

    NAUWI lamang sa wala ang 13 taong paghihintay sa posibleng biglaang pagyaman ng mga nagwagi sa 349 promo ng Pepsi Cola.

    Ito ay matapos na ibasura ng Korte Suprema ang petisyon ng isang grupo ng mga may hawak ng tansang may numero '349' para makakuha ng danyos laban sa Pepsi.

    Kinatigan lamang ng SC ang naunang hatol ng Makati Regional Trial Court pabor sa mosyon ng Pepsi na idismis na ang kaso dahil may mga kahalintulad na ring kaso ang nadesisyunan ng Korte Suprema.

    Kabilang na rito ang mga kasong magkakahiwalay na isinampa nina Gerson Mendoza at Romulo Rodrigo na parehong pinawalang-saysay ng Mataas na Hukuman.

    Binigyan din ng SC na pinal na ang hatol ng Hukuman at maaari pa rin itong gamitin sa mga kahalintulad na kaso.

    Tinanggap ng Korte ang paliwanag ng Pepsi na hindi lahat ng tansan na may numerong '349' ay maituturing na 'winning crown' dahil may security code ang mga ito na dapat tumugma sa winning number.

    It was obvious Jolina & Marvin missed each other so much

    MAY chemistry pa rin sina Jolina Magdangal at Marvin Agustin. Halatang na-miss nila ang isa’t isa noong nagkita sila sa taping ng “Extra Challenge.”

    Nanghinayang lang ang kanilang fans na hindi tinapos ni Marvin ang ibang challenges na supposedly ay gagawin nila ni Jolina. Pinul-out kasi ang aktor ng ABS-CBN.

    Anyway, ipinalabas pa rin ng GMA-7 ang mga challenge na nagawa ng former love team. When he backed out, pinalitan siya ni Biboy Ramirez.

    Nasa States pa rin ngayon si Marvin at nag-e-enjoy sa pag-aalaga sa kanyang kambal na anak – Santiago at Sebastian. One month pa siyang mananatili roon. Kahit may anak na, hindi pa rin napag-uusapan nina Marvin at Tetet Dy (mother ng twins) ang kasal. Basta ang priority ngayon ni Marvin ay ang pagiging father kina Santiago at Sebastian.

    When he comes back, wish lang ni Marvin na mabibigyan siya ng ABS-CBN ng bagong show matapos matsugi sa ere ang “MRS.” (Rowena Agilada)

    Kris-James marriage: Non-committal answer is interpreted as confirmation

    RATHER THAN LIE – If you ask me, Kris Aquino’s non-committal answer to the question as to whether she’s married or not to James Yap is confirmation that she’s indeed Mrs. Yap. In last Sunday’s “The Buzz,” co-hosts Boy Abunda and Cristy Fermin asked two questions: Is she pregnant? Did she marry James?

    As regards the pregnancy issue, Kris categorically said no. She plans to get pregnant in 2007.

    And the marriage issue? Kris gave a roundabout answer, saying being public figures (James is a PBA player) the press has the right to probe into their personal lives. That she understood. But for the moment she’d rather not confirm or deny her marital status, whether still single or already married. She said she and James might in the future make a joint statement.

    Now, Kris has always been honest with the public, saying it like it is even, at times, to her detriment. Rather than lie, she opted to be non-committal. Which, as earlier noted, I interpreted as a confirmation.

    By the way, last Sunday’s “The Buzz” was interesting, loaded with hot news and issues. Its competitor, “S-Files,” was lousy.

    • ‘BARANGAY BIDA’ HOST – He’s described as a younger and handsomer version of Fil-American actor Lou Diamond Philips and fellow La Sallian Ralph Recto. This columnist sees him as an older version of Jamie Melendez, younger brother of Aiko.

    He – James Marty Lao Lim – is seen every now and then on television, usually espousing the cause of barangays. But I didn’t really know him until colleague Rose Garcia disclosed that James Marty is hosting a show on RPN-9 titled “Barangay Bida,” which airs starting Sept. 3 (Saturday), 5 to 6 p.m.

    Coinciding with the launch of “Barangay Bida” is the start of its twin radio program on Veritas 846mhz, “Ang Barangay Bida sa Radyo,” aired every Friday at 3 p.m.

    • GETTING TO KNOW JAMES MARTY – From Rose G this info on the TV-radio host.

    A bachelor’s degree holder in science and management from De La Salle University and a businessman by profession, James Marty Lao Lim of Brgy. Dos, Gasan, Marinduque has kept away from the political arena until his exposure to it by virtue of his mother, Vicky Lim, becoming a mayor in 1995. In his encounter with the barangay officials of Gasan, he came to realize the importance of their positions especially in the delivery of basic services to their constituents. However, he found it lamentable that their efforts were barely given recognition by the government.

    Thus, in 1997, he ran and won as punong barangay of Barangay Dos. Believing he could be of greater service as an officer of the Liga ng mga Barangay, he ran and won as national president, currently on his second term.

    Chynna, intrigera

    SI Chynna Ortaleza ang napagbintangang, diumano’y, nagkalat ng balitang nag-audition noon si Rica Peralejo sa “Darna.” Nagkasabay kasi ang dalawa sa pag-audition at si Chynna ang itinurong pinagmulan ng tsika.

    Sa bugbugan issue nina Mark Herras at Jennylyn Mercado, nadawit na naman ang name ni Chynna. Although hindi diretsang itinuro ng isang relative ni Mark na may kinalaman si Chynna sa pagkalat ng isyu, parang ganoon na rin ang dating ng kuwento nito sa isang reporter.

    Roommates kasi sina Chynna at Jennylyn noong nasa States sila. Baka raw naikuwento lang ni Chynna sa ibang tao ang nakita nitong nagkalat na mga gamit ni Jennylyn sa hotel room na tinuluyan nila. It so happened, katatapos lang daw mag-away nina Mark at Jennylyn. Iyak daw nang iyak ang dalaga.

    Iniisip daw ng isang relative ni Mark na kung halimbawang naikuwento ni Chynna sa ibang tao ang eksenang nakita niya at naitsika naman ito sa iba’y nadagdagan na ang istorya at lumabas na binugbog ni Mark si Jennylyn. Any reaction, Chynna?

    By the way, ini-enroll ng GMA-7 si Mark sa John Robert Powers para sa speech and personality development. Hindi kasi siya maliwanag mag-deliver ng kanyang lines at minsan ay hindi maintindihan ang sinasabi niya. Next month ang start ng special class ni Mark.

    Sa John Robert Powers din nag-aral si Cogie Domingo ng speech and personality development.

    Alma vs. Lorna

    Hindi nagtagumpay ang ilang intrigero’t intrigera na pag-awayin sina Lorna Tolentino at Alma Moreno. Gawin ba kasing isyu kung kanino dapat magpa-liposuction si Mark Anthony Fernandez? Ang gusto kasi ng kanyang mama Alma ay kay Dr. Manny Calayan siya magpa-lipo. Ang Tita LT naman niya’y kay Dra. Vicky Belo.

    Ayon kay Alma, hindi naman niya pinilit ang kanyang anak na kay Dr. Calayan ito magpa-lipo dahil ito ang kanyang doctor. Nabanggit lang niya ’yon. Same with LT na nai-suggest lang si Dra. Belo dahil ito ang nangangalaga sa kanyang skin, pati na kay Rudy Fernandez.

    And the winner is…Dra. Vicky Belo na siyang pinili ni Mark dahil from the start ay ito na ang nangangalaga sa kanyang skin. Sabi nga nina Alma at LT, matatanda na sila para intrigahin at cheap pa ang isyu, huh!

    By the way, puring-puri ng production staff si Mark sa taping ng mga programang pinagge-guestan nito. Wala na raw itong attitude problem at maayos na natatapos ni Mark ang kanyang mga eksena.

    Ano ang HP?

    Palaisipan sa televiewers ang teaser na pinapalabas ng GMA-7 tungkol sa bago nitong programa. “HP” lang ang nakalagay na akala ng iba’y Harry Potter ang ibig sabihin.

    Well, for your information, “Hokus Pokus” ’yon na bagong sitcom na tatampukan nina Bong Revilla, Rufa Mae Quinto, together with K Brosas, Antonio Aquitania, Yasmien Kurdi, and Rainier Castillo.

    ’Heard, nagiging problema raw ang schedule ni Rainier sa taping ng HP. Parati raw kasing may conflict kaya ito ang nagiging cause of delay. How true?

    In any case, kasama rin sina Rainier at Yasmien sa pelikulang “Love-struck” ng GMA Films. He plays a gay role at tom-boy naman si Yasmien. Kasama rin sa movie sina Jen-nylyn Mercado, Mark Herras, Mike Tan, LJ Reyes, CJ Muere at Ryza Cenon. Directed by Louie Ignacio.


    Getting interesting each day ang “Pinoy Big Brother” and this early, may kanya-kanya nang bet ang televiewers kung sino ang paborito nila among the 12 housemates.

    May game pa nga ang mga pexers sa internet kung sino ang karapat-dapat maging Ultimate Survivor. May eviction din sila every week, base sa bilang ng boto ng bawa’t housemate.

    Matunog ang name ni Cassandra na sexy at intriguing ang personality, ayon sa ibang pexers. Para raw may kung ano’ng itinatago ito. May mga nagbe-bet naman for Uma and Franzen.

    It’s a long way to go at marami pang interesting and exciting na mangyayari sa 12 housemates in 100 days. Sey nga ni direk Lauren Dyogi, baka raw sa programang ito’y makabawi na ang ABS-CBN.

    James determined to forget Kris’ past

    DEFINITELY, no coverage sa church wedding nina Kris Aquino at James Yap next year. ’Yun ang gusto ni James at magbibigay na lang sila sa media ng wedding photos para mai-publish ang mga ’yon, ayon kay Kris. Nirerespeto raw niya ang desisyon ng kanyang husband na maging private affair ang kanilang church wedding.

    Hindi sinagot nang diretso ni Kris ang tanong ng bayan kung totoo bang kasal na sila ni James sa isang civil rites. May karapatan daw siyang huwag magsalita at sa kanya na lang daw ’yon. One thing she learned from James ay hindi raw lahat ng bagay ay dapat niyang sabihin o ipaalam sa publiko.

    She stressed, she’s not pregnant. Sa later part of 2007 gusto niyang magka-baby dahil Year of the Pig ’yon tulad niya and her son Joshua.

    Sa guesting nina Kris at James sa “Homeboy,” inamin ni James na love at first sight siya kay Kris. Matagal na raw niya itong crush dahil type niya sa girl ang maputi. Shy nga raw siya at nanlamig the first time they met. It was his manager Dondon Monteverde ang nag-introduce sa kanila ni Kris sa isang dinner na isi-net nito. ’Yung face ni Kris ang una niyang tiningnan, sey ni James.

    Ibinuko pa ni James si Kris na sinabi nitong habang tumatagal ang tingin nito sa kanya’y nagiging guwapo siya. Sinabi rin ng basketbolistang pinag-isipan niyang mabuti bago siya pumasok sa sitwasyon nila ngayon ni Kris. At handa raw siya sa lahat ng intriga sa kanilang relasyon.

    Lakas ng loob ang ginawa niyang panliligaw kay Kris, ayon kay James. Bukod daw sa pagiging totoong tao ni Kris, ’yung pagiging maalaga at magaling magluto ang nagustuhan niya kay Kris.

    Feeling long hair naman si Kris nang may nagtanong kay James mula sa audience kung maipanga-ngako ba raw nitong hindi niya sasaktan si Kris. “Itinatanong pa ba ’yan?” was his quick reply. Pero inamin ni James, natatakot pa rin siya sa mommy ni Kris na si Tita Cory.

    With her son Joshua, no problem. They get along well, ayon kay James. Pinag-usapan na rin nila ni Kris na huwag nang banggitin ang nakaraan. “Past is past,” James said. (Rowena Agilada)
