COURTESY CALL


SHAMCEY SUPSUP met with President Aquino and Vice President Jejomar Binay at the NAIA’s VIP lounge Sunday night. The President congratulated her for a strong finish in the Miss Universe pageant. In return, Shamcey congratulated the President for his high approval and trust ratings. She also congratulated the Vice President for Miss Angola’s win.

Miss Universe third runner-up Shamcey Supsup met with President Aquino Sunday night at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s VIP lounge before he left for the United States. The beauty queen’s courtesy call on the President took place at the NAIA because of his very tight schedule. The only person with a tighter sked is Shamcey.

Before the meeting was over, President Aquino told Shamcey Supsup he’s looking forward to seeing her again. Vice President Binay told her he’s looking forward to 2016.

Shamcey Supsup has a contract with the Aranetas’ Bb. Pilipinas Charities. Which explains why Vice President Binay hardly smiled during the courtesy call. She’s with the Balay group!

President Aquino and Shamcey Supsup met at the NAIA’s VIP lounge Sunday night. It was like a scene from ‘Beauty and the Geek.’ Then Vice President Jejomar Binay joined them, and it reminded me of ‘Outsourced.’

Aquino in America
Before he left for the United States, President Aquino vowed to showcase the Filipinos’ competitiveness. To prove his point, he’ll start by telling US President Barack Obama, “Let’s talk about our approval ratings. What do you got?”

Smoking Kills
Citing a recent study, anti-tobacco group Health Justice Philippines reported that 10 Filipinos die every hour from smoking-related illnesses. But Senator Tito Sotto says he’ll only believe the study if Health Justice could show him the death certificates of the 10 people who died an hour ago.

Context
Vice President Jejomar Binay insists his statement regarding a supposed plan to run for president in 2016 was taken out of context. He says he is just “aspiring to become president.” He’ll explain himself further in his next text blast. Wait lang.

FG Leaves
Former First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo has left for Munich, Germany for a medical check up again. Take that DOJ!

Jailed
Former military comptroller Carlos F. Garcia will be serving a jail term of two years. Or as Hubert Webb et al. would say, “Ano ‘yon? Overnight?”

Floyd Jr. Wins
Floyd Mayweather Jr. scored a controversial knockout win against Victor Ortiz. The Mayweather-Ortiz fight preceded the evening’s main event: Mayweather vs. 80-year-old ring announcer Larry Merchant.

Boxing fans can hardly wait to see Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight Manny Pacquiao. To which Floyd Jr said, “Pacquiao is only 32 years old. Let me decide within the next 48 years.”

UAAP Semifinals
The Adamson Falcons wasted its twice-to-beat advantage and lost to the FEU Tamaraws in their do-or-die UAAP semifinals match Sunday. Sources say the Falcons were not able to sleep, and for 24 hours, they kept asking themselves, “What has happened to us?” That’s the same question the UP Fighting Maroons have been asking themselves for the last 25 years.

Angry Bird
An influential and popular talent has threatened to resign from a large network because of a radio personality. Sources say the talent has been the subject of the radio personality’s recent blind items particularly the former’s alleged infidelity. The talent was quoted to have said, “Nasa iisang bubong kami ‘tapos ayaw n’ya akong tigilan. Eh kung maghiwalay kami ng asawa ko?!?”

MISS U


CONGRATULATIONS Shamcey Gurrea Supsup for winning 3rd runner-up in the 2011 Miss Universe pageant! We are extremely proud of you!

Let me also take this opportunity to congratulate the interpreters of the four other candidates who made it to the Top 5! Great job guys!

BREAKING NEWS: A resolution has been filed in the Senate seeking to investigate why the Philippines, after 38 successive years, has yet to win another Miss Universe title. Schedule of hearing to be announced soon.


On Twitter, the US Embassy in Manila congratulated Shamcey Supsup for placing 3rd runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant. Moments later though, Wikileaks intercepted classified direct Twitter messages from the US Embassy to Washington saying, “The Philippines’ representative to the Miss Universe pageant is not as strong as Miss USA or Miss Ukraine. Her signature tsunami walk is awful. Go Angola!”

Asked if Shamcey Supsup has a boyfriend, the spokesman of the Bb. Pilipinas Charities answered, “That’s like Wikileaks. We don’t comment on Shamcey’s social life.”

Fan votes (which had no bearing on the judging) were shown on TV screens during the live telecast. Miss Philippines placed second in the long gown competition. In last place was Moammar Gaddafi.

Special awards were handed out during the Miss Universe preliminaries. The Miss Photogenic trophy went to Miss Sweden. Named Miss Congeniality was Dyan Castillejo.


The representative from China placed fifth. The candidate from the Philippines placed fourth. Take that Hu Jintao!

Shamcey Supsup is the fourth most beautiful woman in the universe today. I wouldn’t be surprised if our bachelor president would use her as a punchline soon.

Filipinos glued on their TV screens rejoiced when the “beauty and brains” from General Santos City was announced 3rd runner-up! But something awkward happened after the announcement – Ilocos Sur Governor Chavit Singson climbed on stage!


University of the Philippines alumna Shamcey Supsup placed fourth in the Miss Universe pageant in Brazil. That’s a final four finish for Shamcey. Take that La Salle Green Archers!

Organizers didn’t say how much were Miss Angola’s winnings. But experts believe it was definitely less than what ABS-CBN earned from the pageant’s delayed telecast.


Via her Twitter account, Miss Universe judge Lea Salonga revealed that she did not compose the question she asked eventual winner Leila Lopes of Angola. The Tony Award-winning actress said the questions for the five finalists were pre-written. And Mike Arroyo was like, “Don’t look at me!”

A black candidate has won the Miss Universe title. Rumors say Mar Roxas is protesting the results!


Is it just coincidence? A black woman won the Miss Universe title on the same day Jejomar Binay announced his plan to run for president in 2016!

In Other News
Vice President Jejomar Binay has announced his intention to seek the presidency in 2016. Asked why he’s running for president, Binay replied, “When I run, I run with God and He’s always with me. He never leaves me and He will shine the light on me.” Good answer!

This just in: Next year’s Miss Universe pageant will definitely be more competitive. Planets Mars, Venus, and Jupiter are reportedly sending candidates.

Quote of the Week
“I’m going to file a protest if possible, if there’s any legal remedy because all the fan ratings rated Miss Philippines very, very high. I thought it will be at least a contest between her and Ms. Ukraine but it turns out neither one made the top two positions which shows that I’m better as a senator than as a beauty consultant.”
~A half-joking Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago expressing her disappointment at Shamcey Supsup’s fourth place finish

Overheard
“Kaya nanalo si Miss Angola kasi sa ABS-CBN ipinalabas ang Miss Universe. Lopes siya eh.” Toingkz!

POPULAR

I KNOW, I know. It was a rather quiet week last week. Aside from the item on the punching congressman, there was only the news about a giant crocodile in Agusan. And we couldn’t even tell the difference. Boring!

PETA’s Appeal
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) urged authorities to return a captured giant crocodile to its natural habitat. But Bunawan, Agusan Del Sur Mayor Edwin Cox Elorde rejected the appeal saying the transfer of the crocodile from Mindanao to Batasang Pambansa would be stressful for the reptile.


Animal rights activitists say the giant crocodile captured in Agusan Del Sur should be freed. But authorities refused saying it could endanger the lives of ordinary people like security guards.

Local authorities believe that an estimated 5,000 crocodiles can be found in Agusan Marsh. Yup, 5 freakin’ thousand! Take that Batasan Marsh!

Marcos, 94
The 94th birth anniversary of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos was commemorated by loved ones Sunday, September 11. To mark the event, members of the Marcos family gathered Sunday at the Marcos’ mausoleum… otherwise known as ‘The House of Wax.’

Vice President Pacquiao
Contrary to his earlier announcement, Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao said he wouldn’t be seeking the vice presidency in 2016. Thanks.

Binay on Twitter?
Vice President Jejomar Binay’s spokesman Joey Salgado says the vice president doesn’t have a Twitter account. Neither he nor his men have time to tweet since they’re busy doing text blasts.

Miss Universe 2011
Shamcey Supsup, the country’s representative to the Miss Universe pageant in São Paulo, Brazil is among the frontrunners to win the title. She is so popular in Brazil right now. In fact, one unidentified candidate was so envious of the Filipina, she distributed copies of an alleged psychological report purportedly showing that Shamcey Supsup battled depression in college.

Shamcey Supsup is a frontrunner to win this year’s Miss Universe title. ABS-CBN has been supporting frontrunners two years in a row now.

The Miss Universe pageant will be held Tuesday morning (Manila time). In totally unrelated news, Fitness First, Slimmers World and Gold’s Gym will reportedly open at 1PM tomorrow instead of the usual 8AM. They didn’t say why.

Who’s the Daddy!?
Young actress Andi Eigenmann has identified the daddy of her baby. For a change, the father of another child soon to be born out of wedlock is neither Manny Pacquiao nor Bong Revilla.

Marooned
The UP Fighting Maroons ended its Season 74 run with a loss to UE. Finishing with a 2-12 slate, the State U failed yet again to make it to the Final 4. And it’s been a while since they did. In fact, the last time they advanced to the semifinals was in the same year that Frank Sinatra bagged a Grammy for Best New Artist.

One of my Twitter followers called my attention to this kid named Jonas Cano of Leyte. He’s a talented kid with autism. Nakakabilib ang husay niya!

Have a great week! Stay safe and healthy!
