Star Magic Unite’s for helping Typoon Ondoy’s Victims September 29, 2009

Kapamilya stars unite in seeking help for victims of Ondoy

The Kapamilya network gives it pledge to continue working and cooperating in helping victims of typhoon Ondoy.

Tinatayang labing-isang oras sumalang kahapon si Kris Aquino, Kim Atienza, Tina Monson-Palma at Fr. Tito Caluag kasama ang ilang celebrities para sa special coverage ng ABS-CBN sa bagyong Ondoy sa pangangalap ng tulong para sa mga nabiktima ng bagyo. Sa pamamagitan ng telethon, nangalap ang Kapamilya network ng tulong pinansyal at relief goods na umabot na sa milyon-milyong halaga para maipaabot sa mga nasalanta ng bagyo.

Paliwanag ni Kris sa The Buzz kahapon, “It’s because we experienced loss. I think a part of my heart really got opened up really because we lost mom and I feel when you know pain, you know the pain of others so much more and you wanna do something to help alleviate the pain kasi andaming tumulong sa ‘yo, eh, so gusto mong isauli lang ang tulong na ‘yon.”

Dagdag pa ni Kris at ang kanyang co-host na sina Boy Abunda at Ruffa Gutierrez, walang pinipili ang kalamidad at lahat ay tinamaan. Marami rin kasing artista ang humingi ng panawagan kahapon sa The Buzz dahil naapektuhan din sila ng bagyo. Ayon kay Kris, ang nasabing kalamidad ay kalampag para sa lahat upang ingatan ang kalikasan at pangalawa, iwasan ang pagkakalat at isaalang-alang ang pagre-recycle ng mga basura.

Marami ring mga Kapamilya stars ang nakibahagi kahapon sa nasabing telethon para sa pagkalap ng tulong at donasyon, kabilang na sina Piolo Pascual, Gerald Anderson, Kim Chiu, KC Concepcion, Melissa Ricks, Jake Cuenca, Pokwang, Nikki Gil, Mark Bautista, Jed Madela, Karylle, at Jericho Rosales.

Samantala, naglabas naman ng official statement ang ABS-CBN at ipinaabot na patuloy ang kanilang pagtulong hanggang malampasan ng sambayanan ang nasabing pagsubok.

Ruffa Gutierrez September 14, 2009 Ruffa Rama Gutierrez known as Ruffa Gutierrez was born on  June 24, 1974 in Philippines is a Filipina model, beauty queen and actress. She was Binibining Pilipinas-World 1993 and the Miss World 1993 Second Princess. She is the daughter of 1960s Filipino actor Eddie Gutierrez and former actress Annabelle Rama and the older sister of identical twin actors Richard and Raymond Gutierrez. In 2003, she married Turkish businessman Yilmaz Bektaş in a ceremony in Manila. She has two daughters named Lorin (born 2003) and Venice (born 2004) with him and resided with them in Istanbul, Turkey for a few years, though she frequently came back home to the Philippines to do commercials, television guestings and vacations.

On May 8, 2007, Gutierrez and Bektaş announced their mutual decision to end their four-year marriage. On June 9 and 10, 2007, Gutierrez claimed on GMA-7’s Startalk and ABS-CBN’s The Buzz that she claimed she was physically tortured and abused by Bektas while in Turkey. She says it’s the reason why she’s divorcing him. Gutierrez revealed that she had been electrocuted in a bath tub filled with water, continuously beaten for 15 hours and locked inside a cabinet. Bektas admitted to slapping her once after learning that she was still married to her previous husband, but denies torturing her. Bektas accused Gutierrez of marital infidelity and claimed she was dating another man which she denied. Gutierrez, who converted to Islam upon her marriage to Yilmaz, has since come back home to her native Philippines and became a Pentecostal Born-Again Christian instead of reverting back to her original Roman Catholic faith. Prior to their separation, Bektas reportedly sought the assistance of his lawyer and was able to determine that, according to marriage records from Clark County, Nevada, she was allegedly married in 1999 in Las Vegas, Nevada to a certain Richard Daloia, an issue that was first reported in 2000 but which Gutierrez has neither denied nor confirmed.On June 10, 2007, Gutierrez admitted on ABS-CBN’s The Buzz, that she married Richard Daloia and belied Bektaş’ claim that she had not filed a divorce petition to nullify her first marriage. She clarified that she alone filed the petition in 2000 but did not follow up the status of the petition. Clark County’s civil, family and probate records on their website, however, shows Ruffa filed the divorce petition only on June 1, 2007. No other record of a previous petition appeared.

Gutierrez sought the help of the Philippine National Police for escort protection following reported threats to her and her daughters’ life. She reportedly receives threatening messages from Bektas. The PNP granted the request for one month. On August 19, 2007, Ruffa confirmed that she reconciled with husband Yilmaz Bektas. Yilmaz Bektas set a condition “I plan to speak with them but in the correct and perfect time. I’m not scared … of course, I am nervous and also shy. It’s not only Ruffa and my two kids I want back, I want all the family back, like Gutierrez family and Bektas family, have to be together.”

Although being married to Richard Daloia (making the Bektas-Gutierrez marriage illegitimate), on September 7, Ruffa admits that she realized it was time to file for the annulment of her marriage to Yilmaz. On August 21, in Saksi of GMA NEWS.TV, Bektas emotionally had it – “My cousin is here bringing her ring. Ruffa’s ring for the proposal. I want to propose to her again in to get married with me. I’m really looking for the correct time. I first want to get the blessing from her family,” however, Annabelle Rama publicly announced that she doesn’t want to meet Bektas. Yilmaz has currently moved on with his life, with his last visit in April 2008, telling Ruffa, “There is nothing to go back to.”

Ruffa was crowned Binibining Pilipinas-World 1993 at the Coronation Night held at the Araneta Coliseum. Other winners include Ana Gonzalez (Elite Model Look), Sheila Mae Santarin (BB. Pilipinas-International), Dindi Gallardo (BB. Pilipinas-Universe), Jeanette Fernando (BB. Pilipinas-Tourism) and a runner up. In 1993 in Sun City, Africa, Ruffa Gutierrez represented the Philippines in the Miss World Beauty Pageant. She stood out during the National Costume Parade where she wore a Sarimanok-inspired pearl studded gown by Ben Farrales.  The choice of Miss Jamaica, Miss South Africa & Miss Philippines in the first three positions in the Miss World Beauty Pageant was considered symbolic of the change and transformation in the world. Ruffa was crowned the second princess.

In 2002, Ruffa Gutierrez was a GMA Network talent. She had three regular shows on GMA Network. She also hosted Philippines’ Next Top Model, Cycle 1 on RPN-9. Starting March 11, 2007, Gutierrez became Kris Aquino’s temporary replacement in The Buzz when the original host filed a maternity leave. When the latter decided to permanently leave The Buzz, ABS-CBN offered her a one-year exclusive talent contract with the network. She was assigned to be the permanent replacement of Kris Aquino at The Buzz and is expected to do a TV series with the network. In that same year, Ruffa appeared in ABSCBN’s remake of Kokey, where she played ‘Trining’. In 2008, Ruffa Gutierrez played the role of Daniella Valencia (the antagonist) in ABSCBN’s remake of Betty La Fea entitled “I Love Betty La Fea” headed by Bea Alonzo as the starring role of Beatrice Pengson. In 2009, Ruffa became the host of a new morning show with Ai Ai de las Alas named Ruffa & Ai, which replaced Boy & Kris.
