Richard Gutierrez’s next project is a primetime TV series based on Carlo J. Caparas’ "Kamandag."

The GMA star confirmed this recently at the press conference of "Rampa: Runway for Charity," a cause-worthy fund drive he shares with sister Ruffa Gutierrez and twin brother Raymond.

Richard has made top-rating action-fantasy series look so good first in "Mulawin," then in "Sugo," "Captain Barbell" and "Lupin."

Angel is still welcome

to help out – Richard

Still on Richard Gutierrez,

the former screen partner of Angel Locsin said his former "Mulawin" co-star is still welcome to help out with the charity project Richard is doing with his siblings. "Lahat puwedeng tumulong. Welcome ang lahat ng gustong tumulong pati na si Angel at mga talents ni Becky (Aguila, Angel’s manager).

Recently, talks on Becky’s other talents, such as Valerie Concepcion, are also moving to ABS-CBN to follow Angel’s lead. Some media quarters rendered color to this since Richard is among the few remaining loyal stars of GMA-7 whom the station groomed from the start.

Damage control

backfires on Angel?

The more damage control Angel Locsin and her camp does, the more the public gets a clearer picture that she left GMA-7 on an ungrateful note.

Angel, who could not defend herself still because she’s still in London, must really be stressed out and she could not have been getting a vacation, least of all a break, when the entire local showbiz is talking about the issue.

Pops and Jomari

to marry in the US?

Concert Queen Pops Fernandez is once more concertizing in the US and reports say her boyfriend Jomari Yllana will follow her there. The question now nagging the minds of showbiz observers is: Are they planning to get married in Las Vegas?

Pops has denied the rumor that she and Jom are planning to tie the knot soon. Jomari is going to the US, true, but to attend the wedding of a cousin, and of course to watch one of Pop’s concerts there. Nothing more.

Sandara Park returns to Korea

Too bad she wasn’t able to revive her showbiz career after she came back from Korea. But they say Sandara Park has only herself to blame. She was already at the peak of her popularity when she decided to take a few months vacation in her country, Korea. When she returned, she has no more showbiz career to go back to.

She got very few projects, despite her talent, especially in comedy. And when she couldn’t pay the bills anymore, she decided to go back to her country. She left recently with her mom and sister.

But before she left, she has broken up with her boyfriend Joseph Bitangcol.

Gretchen, Tonyboy

back in the US

Tonyboy Cojuangco, Gretchen Barretto and their daughter Dominique have gone back to the US for another medical check-up for the former. Showbiz observers are wondering what’s really ailing him? Anyway, Juicy heard they’ll be away for a while.

There’s also this rumor saying TonyBoy and his mom, socialite–philantrophist Meldy Cojuangco, had a fight sort of because she wanted him to break up with Gretchen, but TonyBoy didn’t want to. He really loves Gretchen so much he had to defy his own mother, Juicy was told.

Pauleen Luna going

steady with mayor?

They’ve been rumored to be having a romantic relationship (even before the elections) but young actress Pauleen Luna denied in the past that she and Valenzuela Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian already have MU (Mutual Understanding), but that they are fond with each other.

But recently during the press conference for Regal Films’ "My Kuyas Wedding" where Pauleen is one of the stars, she admitted that there really is something going between the two of them. But...she hastened to add..."it’s not official yet." Juicy wonders what she meant by that?
