Nikki Gil: I’m back!

Returning MYX VJ Nikki Gil turns goofy in this photo posted by the singer on her Instagram page on Thursday

Singer-host celebrates 26th birthday

MANILA — Nikki Gil is back in the grind as a TV host, VJ, and “ASAP” mainstay, following a brief vacation and her controversial break-up with long-time boyfriend Billy Crawford.

Gil resumed work as a regular VJ of music channel MYX on Thursday, and took to image-sharing service Instagram to express excitement about being reunited with her “family.”

“I’m back!” she said in the accompanying caption of a photo showing her striking goofy poses at the MYX studio.

On the eve of August 23, her birthday, Gil also shared an Instagram video of a “salubong” of her 26th year, as she celebrated it with colleagues from MYX.

The “Apoy sa Dagat” actress, who was inactive on social media after her separation from Crawford in July, resumed interacting with her followers last week, with a post showing a “meaningful vacay that was.”

In the past week, Gil also chronicled her return to the Sunday concert program “ASAP” by posting photos of rehearsals, her co-stars, and her latest on-stage performance.

Since her high-profile break-up in July, Gil has remained tight-lipped on the issue despite numerous reports linking Crawford to an alleged third party in the relationship, which he has repeatedly denied.

Is Manny Pacquiao Going Bankrupt?

Is Manny Pacquiao, whose rags-to-riches story has captured the imagination of fight fans around the globe, going bankrupt?

Rex “Wakee” Salud, a long-time confidante of the Filipino boxing superstar, revealed Pacquiao’s financial status in an interview with Sun Star Cebu’s Erwin Lirazan.

“Di lang kay nahurothurot, hurot gyud! (He did not just lose his money, he lost all of it),” said Salud, who has known Pacquiao since he started boxing in the mid-’90s.

Pacquiao rose to superstardom by beating some of the biggest names in boxing including Oscar de la Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, Marco Antonio Barrera and Erik Morales.

He earned millions of dollars through those victories and became one of the top paid boxers in the industry.

Forbes Magazine even listed Pacquiao as the 14th highest paid athlete this year with estimated earnings $ 34 million from boxing purses and endorsement deals.

However, the boxer doesn’t seem to know how to manage his riches, as he is known to be very generous especially to the poor, according to Salud.

“Daghan man sab gud na siyang gitaba­ngan, dili man na siya kahibalo mobalibad (He helped a lot of people, and he didn’t know how to refuse),” said Salud.

The Filipino boxer is also known for his flamboyant lifestyle as he reportedly owned several mansions in Laguna, General Santos City and Forbes Park, Makati City.

He also owns an extensive collection of expensive cars, including a Ferrari 458 Italia, which he reportedly bought for $ 309,000 (P13.367 million).

However, some of his biggest expense went to politics.

According to ESPN’s Nigel Collins, Pacquiao spent approximately $ 8.6 million (around P379 million) in campaign funds for the 2010 and the 2013 elections.

“He spent an estimated $ 6.6 million on his successful 2010 campaign to become the congressional representative of the district of Sarangani,” Collins said in his ESPN column.

“[His] wife Jinkee and brother Rogelio also ran for office [in 2013], and it cost Pacquiao approximately $ 2 million to finance the campaigns,” the analyst said.

Salud hinted that Pacquiao is now motivated to fight because of money.

“Unya dugay sab siyang wala makaaway. Hurot man gani ang iyang kuwarta katong sige siya’g away, karon pa kaha nga hapit usa ka tuig una siya moaway og balik (He always ran out of money when he was still actively fighting, even more so when he stopped fighting for almost a year now),” said Salud.

The last time Pacquiao fought was in December 2012 when he lost to Juan Manuel Marquez via a shocking sixth-round knockout.

He had to take a long furlough from boxing because of the way he got knocked out.

Just recently, ABS-CBN North America News Bureau’s Steve Angeles reported that Pacquiao is selling off his Los Angeles mansion for $ 2.7 million.

The boxer bought the five-bedroom Mediterranean style home for $ 2.17 million in 2009.

Salud said the Brandon Rios fight this November will be Pacquiao’s last chance. If he fails again, then it’s over for the Filipino boxer, said the veteran boxing promoter.

“Last card na kini ni Manny, kon mapilde siya angay na siyang mo-retire (This is Pacquiao’s last card. If he loses, then I think it’s time to retire),” he said.

Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik of One Direction had proposed to her girlfriend Perrie Edwards.

The singer confirmed the news while conducting an interview for the new One Direction movie This Is Us.

“We’re really happy. Yeah, it’s cool.”

Malik already has Perrie’s face tattooed on his arm and recently said that their relationship was “stronger than ever.”

“I’d fly 10 planes to go home and see her… It’s difficult to see your girlfriend 24/7. When you do get to see her, you really make the most of it. My mum used to say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and it definitely does.”

The Joke in a Wink

Two comedians and hosts – CH1 and CH2 – do not exactly have a pleasant history. Their professional work often triggered a rivalry between which are not exactly to their liking. Both very vocal on many issues, CH1 and CH2 have in the past been bitter enemies which most people find uncalled for owing to their status.

Through the years however, both have finally realized that it’s time to move forward and be real gentlemen for the benefit of their public whom they owe a lot. Thus they began to bury the hatchet and started becoming friends again. To be fair to both, especially for CH2, whether he was sincere or not, he did walk the talk.

CH2 publicly showed his generous side by giving CH1 gifts on several occasions, to which CH1 acknowledged wholeheartedly. In their respective shows, both tried to show friendliness by making positive statements about each other. Although some observers say that both CH1 and CH2 may have not really meant it, but are just after publicity.

Recently, maybe as a gesture of returning CH2’s favor, CH1 gave CH2 a piece of his passion, something that reportedly overwhelmed CH2. He was so overwhelmed that he told CH1 that he would be hosting a party for him.

Came the date of the supposed party, everything was in place – catering, singers and dancers. Friends and guests came – hours passed – CH1 was nowhere in sight. CH2 was fidgety. He ordered his staff to call CH1. CH1 picked up the phone – seemed surprised and reasoned out that he didn’t know anything about the party. Uh oh!

Was it sarcasm on CH1’s part to do what he did? Whatever his reason was, CH2’s group reportedly remarked, “ the joke’s on CH2.’’

“You had to learn at a certain age what sarcasm is, you know?” ~Penny Marshall
