Kiana Valenciano and Other Filipinas Were Discriminated at LA Fashion Week

Singer Kiana Valenciano, Miss Earth 2014 Jamie Herrell, and five other Filipinas were set to walk a show at Los Angeles Fashion Week. But the opportunity was taken away after they were blocked from entering backstage. According to Kiana, one of the producers told them that no Filipinos were allowed; no other reason was given to them. This was despite the fact that they were models for designers Elie Madi, Rocky Gathercole, and Resty Lagare. A post shared by Angeli Pangilinan Valenciano (@angelipv) on Mar 10, 2018 at 4:00am PST "It's confusing that the designers Rocky Gathercole and Resty Lagare were Filipino, and they couldn't have Filipino models," Kiana said ...Keep on reading: Kiana Valenciano and Other Filipinas Were Discriminated at LA Fashion Week.....»»

Vice Ganda silently flexes affinity for retro NBA jerseys on It s Showtime

Don’t look now, but Vice Ganda, arguably the brightest star on noontime TV has been flexing an assortment of retro NBA gear that would make even the most hipster of basketball fashionistas drool. ABS-CBN’s unkabogable ‘It’s Showtime’ star may not immediately register as the biggest celebrity hoops fan, but he’s nonchalantly showing off his array of retro NBA swingman shirts and outer wear on national TV.  Let's check out the comedian's hardwood classics-inspired fits from the past four days:   GOLDEN STATE OF MIND His choice of NBA-related pieces really started last June 11. Vice Ganda, real name Jose Mari Viceral, wore a 90’s era Golden State Warriors bomber jacket on the show. Whether it’s a tribute to the very fun Run TMC trio from the late 80s to the 90s, or a silent congratulations  of sorts to the 2018 NBA Champs, it still has our thumbs up.  Ganown yown! 😂😂😂#ShowtimeHappinessLunes — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 11, 2018 Sinabi na kasing hindi pwede! 😂😂😂#ShowtimeHappinessLunes — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 11, 2018 Beklamation na!#ShowtimeHappinessLunes — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 11, 2018 Yieeeee meron nga ba? ❤️#ShowtimeHappinessLunes — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 11, 2018   LARRY LEGEND Then the box-office star followed it up with an oversized Larry Bird Celtics shirt in its insanely clean home colorway the day after.  There’s just something about Celtics green on immaculate white that harkens back to the days of Larry Legend that’s classic and always stylish.

Nakakahawa!#ShowtimeArawNgKaLayaan — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 12, 2018 Nakakagigil!#ShowtimeArawNgKaLayaan — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 12, 2018 Kasheee nemen! ❤️#ShowtimeArawNgKaLayaan — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 12, 2018   BAD BOY The next day, Vice then donned a Detroit ’Badboys’-era Dennis Rodman jersey shirt that complements his wildly colored hair.  The huge Pistons type in bold red pops out from the dark blue base of the shirt, and it just goes well with Vice’s dreamy pink hair. May paghawak oh!#ShowtimeHunyoPanaLo — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 13, 2018 ❤️❤️❤️#ShowtimeHunyoPanaLo — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 13, 2018 Chismisan eh 😂😂😂#ShowtimeHunyoPanaLo — ItsShowtimeNa (@itsShowtimeNa) June 13, 2018   SHOWTIME INDEED In his latest flex, Vice stayed consistent with his retro vibe the whole week with a regal Magic Johnson Lakers away jersey in dark purple.

PVL: HD Spikers back in winning form

BATANGAS CITY -- Defending champion Cignal reasserted its mastery over archrival Philippine Air Force in a rematch of last year’s finals in an emphatic fashion, 25-20, 25-16, 25-10, Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference men’s play at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum here. Coming off a sorry loss last week at the hands of PLDT Home Fibr, the HD Spikers came out smoking to easily submit the Jet Spikers and claim their second win in three outings. Five-time UAAP Most Valuable Player Marck Espejo hammered 15 attacks in his 17-point performance while adding eight excellent receptions and two digs to pace Cignal. Rex Intal finished with 10 points while Ysay Marasigan scored all of his seven markers on spikes for the HD Spikers, who blasted 37 attacks and posted 10 kill blocks to frustrate the hitters of Air Force. "I guess 'yung resiliency ng mga players coming from a loss last week played a big factor. Medyo hindi maganda 'yung pagkatalo namin last week. Good thing 'yung mga players nag-respond sa mga call ko to step up,” said Cignal coach Oliver Almadro. “Hindi pwedeng puro talent, they have to combine talent with effort. Kita naman, 'yung mga unexpected ko mag-deliver, nag-deliver. Everybody contributed well. Ngayon sabay-sabay nag-step up 'yung mga players.” “Siguro nagulat din 'yung Air Force. Pero, sabi ko nga, hindi dito natatapos eh. We have to level up every game, every practice," he added. The Jet Spikers crashed for the second straight match and dropped to 1-2 slate. Cignal’s net defense effectively silenced Air Force’s 1-2 punch of reigning MVP Ranran Abdilla and Fauzi Ismail, who were limited to eight and seven points, respectively.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PNG: Nakano, Pamintuan highlight Tuesday s medal haul

Filipino-Japanese judoka twins made their presence felt while a young swimmer from Laguna continued to assert her dominance at the 9th Philippine National Games (PNG) Tuesday at the Cebu City Sports Complex. Shugen and Kensei Nakano clobbered their respective foes in impressive fashion to boost their preparation for the 18th Asian Games in this prestigious multi-sport tourney organized by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC). Representing Pasay City, the 22-year old Shugen crushed Al-Rolan Llamas by way of ippon to capture the gold medal in the men’s -66kg class of this battle that also serves as qualifying tourney for aspiring members of the national team. Minutes later, his twin brother – Kensei – emerged victorious as he downed Czar Augustus Bayas of Taguig City via ippon in the finals of the men’s 73kg class held at the University of San Carlos north campus. Their exploits caught the attention of Philippine Judo Federation (PJF) Dave Carter, who believes that the Nakano brothers have what it takes to regain their slots in the national squad after clinching the bronze medal in the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur last year. “We were impressed because all of their victories from the eliminations up to the finals were via ippon,” said Carter, whose federation clinched a pair of gold medals in the previous biennial meet courtesy of Kiyomi Watanabe in the women’s -63kg and Mariya Takahashi in the women’s -70kg class. “We are closely monitoring the matches because this tournament will give us an idea on who we will recommend for the Asian Games this August.”  Also making their mark in judo were Alvin Mendoza of Zamboanga City, who dominated Sean Levyn Panganiban of Valenzuela City in the men’s -55kg class while national team member Bryan Quillotes of Manila proved that he’s still the best in the men’s -60kg class after outmuscling teammate Adrian Perillo. In the distaff side, Jeanalene Lopez of Pasay City prevailed over Mylene Pinkihan in the -44kg; Jazlen Awitan of Baguio City plucked the gold medal after frustrating Sharia Dean Battala of Quezon City in the -48kg category; national team mainstay Helen Dawa reigned supreme over Honey Lorraine Dabucol of Davao City in the -52kg category; and Rena Furukawa of the national team dominated Jenielou Mosqueda of Davao City in the -57kg class. However, the day still belonged to Nicole Meah Pamintuan of Sta. Rosa City. After taking the first two days of this tourney by storm, the 18-year old student from De La Salle-Zobel reasserted her mastery as she clinched the gold medal in the girls’ 100-meter backstroke to add to her ever-growing medal collection. She registered an impressive one minute and 9.81 seconds while Andrea Punay of Gen. Santos City and Miles Valdez of Iligan City tallied 1:21.70 and 1:23.68 to settle for the silver and bronze medals, respectively. “I hope my performance would help me make it to the Asian Games and the SEA Games next year,” said Pamintuan, a bronze medalist in the previous SEA Games, said. In track and field, national team members Harry Diones, Rhea Joy Sumalpong and Rosie Villarito scored impressive wins to build momentum before competing in the Philippine Amateur Track and Field Association  National Open in Ilagan City next month. Diones registered 15.94 meters to clinch the gold medal in the senior men’s triple jump while Sumalpong tallied 40.65 meters to emerge victorious in the senior women’s discuss throw event. Villarito, the grizzled SEA Games campaigner, emerged with 45.98 meters to clinch the mint over Narcisa Atienza in the senior women’s javelin throw. As of 2:30 pm, Tuesday, Cebu City remains on top of the medal tally with seven gold, 11 silver and nine bronze medals while Gen. Santos City is not far behind with six gold, five silver and seven bronze medals at the midway mark of this week-long tourney......»»

Zverev beats Thiem to win Madrid Open

MADRID (AP) — Second-seeded Alexander Zverev eased past fifth-seeded Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-4 to win the Madrid Open on Sunday, claiming his second title in a week. The German broke Thiem's opening service games in each set and didn't give his Austrian rival a single break chance to win in 1 hour, 19 minutes. Zverev won his eighth career title and second of the season after also winning the Munich Open last weekend. "It is unbelievable," Zverev said. "This is my third Masters 1000 and I am only 21 years old. It has been an amazing journey." Zverev dominated the entire week in the Spanish capital, not losing a single set en route to victory. Thiem lost his second consecutive final at the Caja Magica. He avenged last year's final loss to Rafael Nadal by beating him in Friday's quarterfinals for the Spaniard's first clay-court loss in a year. Zverev started strongly when Thiem conceded his first service game with a costly double fault. Serving to close out the first set, Zverev trailed 0-30 but used his big serve to force deuce and finally closed out the point when Thiem's return sailed long. Zverev started the second set in similar fashion, hitting a deep forehand that Thiem could only send into the net on the final point of his service game to fall behind a break. It was Zverev's second win in six meetings with Thiem. On Saturday, Petra Kvitova beat Kiki Bertens in three sets to win the women's title......»»

Julia Barretto and Kiana Valenciano Lost It While Watching the ‘Tagpuan’ Music Video

Last night, Moira Dela Torre released the teaser video for her upcoming music video for "Tagpuan." But it's not a regular teaser as it showed celebrities and fans reacting to it. It also got us thinking about what's going to happen in the video. Sisters Julia Barretto and Dani Barretto had tears in their eyes almost the whole time. While Kiana Valenciano was jumping up and down because she couldn't contain her emotions, possibly her kilig. Is it going to be a Nicholas Sparks-esque love story? Vice Ganda was also looking at his screen very closely and asking, "Siya ba yan?" (Is that him/her?) Maybe there are Easter eggs and special guests in the video? Did Moira get ...Keep on reading: Julia Barretto and Kiana Valenciano Lost It While Watching the ‘Tagpuan’ Music Video.....»»
