Latest News Philippines: Karel breaks up with husband for good – Journal.com.ph:
KAREL Marquez had broken up again with her husband, Armand Go. They broke up two years ago while she was doing “Babaeng Hampaslupa” with TV 5, but got reconciled last year when she did “Glamorosa”. Now, the latest word is that they’ve split once more.
“We tried to give it another chance, pero wala talaga, e,” she says. “I’d rather be a single mom.”
They have two kids, Kailey Adriana, 3 years old, and Kyler Armand, 2, both of whom are under her custody. Her contract with TV5 has expired and Karel’s manager, Annabelle Rama, found work for her at GMA-7, “Yesterday’s Bride”, where she plays villain to Lovi Poe and Rocco Nacino.
“Bale balikbayan ako sa GMA-7. My last show before I got married was with them, ‘Zaido, Pulis Pangkalawakan’. For ‘Yesterday’s Bride’, I joined the workshop with the cast at first scene na pinagawa sa’kin, apihin ko si Lovi and later, akitin ko si Rocco. I guess nagawa ko naman nang maayos kasi they were pleased sa acting ko. Very challenging ang role ko in this new soap dahil bipolar ako na grabe ang mood swings.”
She wants to do more character roles. “Yun ang mas nagtatagal, di ba? Like Cherie Gil and Jean Garcia, up to now, sunod-sunod ang work nila kasi they can do any kind of role assigned to them.”

SUPERSTARS IN ‘AA’
GOV. Vilma Santos, Sharon Cuneta and Nora Aunor are the special guests in “Artista Academy” this week. The top 6 grand finalists feel so grateful for getting the rare privilege of interacting with no less than the three most enduring movie queens in local showbiz: the Star for All Seasons, the Megastar and the Superstar. Akihiro Blanco, Chanel Morales, Mark Neumann, Shaira Mae, Sophie Albert and Vin Abrenica know that they now face tougher challenges as their Artista Academy journey culminates in the Grand Awards Night to be held at the SMART Araneta Coliseum on October 27. They consider it an honor to be able to meet the country’s top actresses.
Yesterday, Mark Neumann, whose roots are from Batangas, was shown visiting the office of Gov. Vilma Santos, who is proud to be have a Batangueño in the grand finals of the grandest artista search. The Star for All Seasons shares with Mark her own journey to stardom from the time she started as a child actress at the young age of nine. She also gives Mark a personal “lucky charm” to always remind him to keep striving to be better at what he does and to never stop learning to hone his talents. Today, Thursday, it’s Sharon Cuneta’s turn to give her words of inspiration as all six Artista Academy Honor Students converse with the Megastar and ask questions about the challenges, hardships and triumphs of her showbiz career.
In this Saturday’s live exams, Akihiro, Mark and Vin are given the chance to do what almost all Filipino artistas dream of: to act with Nora Aunor. Footages of the shoot as well as the Superstar’s comments about the Artista Academy boys will be shown in this Friday’s episode. “Artista Academy” airs weeknights at 9:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. on TV5.
WHERE TO, SID?
IT started in blind items: the reports about an actor who has become so delinquent in his work he was eventually eased out of his current show. But for regular viewers of GMA-7’s afternoon, “Hindi Ka Na Mag-iisa”, they already know the actor being referred to is Sid Lucero, who started as Jennylyn Mercado’s leading man.
Now, Sid is no longer seen in the show and the things he’s supposed to, like accompanying Jennylyn’s character, Elisa, while she is searching for her missing mom, Glydel Mercado, and sister, Krystal Reyes, have been assigned to the character played by Frank Magalona, who now serves as Jen’s leading man.
Sid is no doubt a very good actor, as attested to by his so many acting awards. But he’s said to be unprofessional, either reporting late on the set or sleeping while at work. He’s attention has reportedly been called several times but he still won’t reform so he was finally given his walking papers.
Sid first gained acclaim as an indie actor, just like Coco Martin. But look where the very hardworking and uncomplaining Coco is now. Sid really neglected himself and even gained some unbecoming weight. Meantime, “Hindi Ka Na Mag-iisa”, is now on its last two weeks and continues to rate well even without him.
MIKOY LOOKS BETTER
MIKOY Morales is the protégé from Roxas City who’s the opposite of Jeric Gonzales. Jeric looks good in person but the TV screen doesn’t do him justice. In contrast, Mikoy looks ordinary in person but he is transformed and looks so much better on screen. Born on Dec. 11, 1993, his full name is Vincent Marco Morales and actually grew up in Manila.
The eldest of two boys, he finished high school at La Salle Greenhills and is now taking up architecture at UST. What does he think is his edge over Jeric and Ruru?
“My discipline,” he says. “I’m very strict with myself at gusto kong pinahihirapan ang sarili ko to excel in all that I do.”
And who’s his chief rival between Jeric and Ruru in the finals night this coming Sunday? “I think it’s Jeric, kasi he’s also very disciplined like me.”
Among the girls, he wants to be paired with Thea with whom he jives well. He plays various musical instruments and prefers singing ballads, but the “Protege” staff told him to do more pop songs. He also has experience in theatre acting as he has acted in plays in UST, even doing the role of Chris in “Miss Saigon.”
