AUGUST 27: KC-Richard vs. Marian-Dingdong

Philippines
August 26, 2008 1:42am CST
August 27 will indeed be a a big day for two of the most-awaited events in the Philippine entertainment industry today. The most talked-about movie of KC Concepcion & Richard Gutierrez entitled "For the First Time" will have its premiere night at SM Megamall along with the birthday celebration of Marian Rivera & Dingdong Dantes at the Araneta Coliseum. Is it really mere coincidence? Or is there something else behind it? hmmmmmmmm..

hi..I actually don't know the story in full details but I have watched Annabelle Rama and Sharon and heard their comments.. I don't think it was mere coincidence..As Ms. Rama stated, there are other suitable dates to celebrate their birthdays,anyway, it is not the real birth dates..GMA should have either do it before or after the movie premiere to give support to the tie up of both film outfits.. Why venture with a tie up, then sabotage the premier, which might give them high earnings? That's why i don't like GMA, they do things unprofessionally and is unethical..

When I watched the comment of Annabelle Rama and Sharon Cuneta on TV last Sunday, I made my own research. Araneta Coliseum management said August 27 was the open date they have for the month of August especially, the birthday concert was only inquired from them last week of July... So I guess this is coincidence...

Hahaha I'd love to comment on this... Funny issue. Anyways, I saw the Sharon episode where Annabelle, Richard and KC guested. Well, like Sharon and Annabelle, I believe some boss of GMA really planned this one. This is GMA's some kind of hunger for ratings or whatever. They love to crash their stars and create arenas for competition. GMA doesn't know how to prioritize their talents and give an even chance for everyone. They lack management skills compared to ABS-CBN. Sorry to the people who'll frown on my insights, but these are purely comments from a viewer's point of view. Haha.

Well there can only be two scenarios on that one. If you have the budget then go to the premier of KC-Richard. If you don't have one then maybe you can attend to the other since I think they offer it for free. I think showbiz just made a big fuzz over it to make the two shows would compete against its other. The other is riding the popularity and the other is just as nervous that theirs would flop because of that. It no big deal really the two have their own fans and supporters I guess so why all the fuss about it.

This issue has been blown out of proportion. The thing is Annabelle Rama just can't accept the fact that there are other people more popular than her kids. What's all the fuss about? The birthday celebration is just for ONE NIGHT. The movie will be shown starting in the morning and will go on for weeks, if the public patronizes it. So why raise a racket when it is not necessary. And why is she suddenly raising hell that Richard is not getting the supposed attention he deserves? He's primetime king, right? And it has never been a problem before even when Richard had a series playing alongside one that featured Dingdong. Now that the latter is making waves, she's suddenly so insecure...

I think they'll both have a fair share of the media and fans, so no harm...But it will really make you think. Nice of you noticing that. Cool.
