The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) is requiring executives and cast of the GMA 7 comedy gag show “Bubble Gang” to attend a conference on Monday, December 9, 9 a.m. over a segment which it deemed showed disrespect for women.
In its Twitter account posted on December 7, the MTRCB cited the show’s November 29 segment titled “D’Adventures of Susie Luwalhati.” Rufa Mae Quinto as Susie Luwalhati, in a “skimpy hanging low neckline tank top,” approached Beethoven Bunagan (Michael V) to apply as cook and puto bumbong seller. He turned her down at first because she lacked experience. But he soon changed his mind.
When he taught Susie how to make puto bumbong from a bamboo tube, a group of men were looking at her “with sexually-oriented delight.” They saw that her breasts were shaking vigorously while holding the bamboo tube. The MTRCB added that “in moving her hand up and down, Susie (who later got the job) gave the impression that she was simulating male

“I really feel bad for Anne,” Heart said at the presscon which launched her as the newest face and body of Tanduay Distillers, Inc.

Heart speaks with the confidence of the survivor that she is. The once-sheltered daughter of overprotective parents is now living on her own and loving it.

Anne Curtis and actor-host JM Rodriguez, co-owner of Prive Luxury Club, where the actress had a slapping incident with some of the guests on November 23, have patched things up.
The two hugged each other on stage at Cherry Mobile’s Dealer’s Night, where Anne rendered a song number and JM, who acted as host, called her “my good friend” onstage.
But this doesn’t seem to apply in the case of Anne and John Lloyd, who, along with other fellow celebrities, became the object of her wrath.
John Lloyd arrived during the last part of the program while Anne left the event early, nixing any chance for the two to meet backstage. Anne and John Lloyd are Cherry Mobile ambassadors.
Meanwhile, JM laments that the controversy is being blown out of proportion. “Nalulungkot lang ako na ang daming exaggerated at nagpapalaki (ng issue),” JM, said after the show.
It will be recalled that a report on Phlippine Entertainment Portal said that Anne allegedly slapped John Lloyd, magazine publisher JR Isaac and Read More »from Did John Lloyd Cruz avoid Anne Curtis in company event?
