[Viral Video] Korina Sanchez angers netizens over Typhoon Ruby Comment

December 07, 2014
Veteran anchor and broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez find herself again on the spotlight after making another controversial comment in relation to typhoon Ruby that are going to hit the country.

On December 3 episode of TV patrol, in the credit discussion of three anchor (Noli De Castro, Ted Failon, Korina Sanchez) veteran anchor said she hoped Typhoon Ruby would hit Japan instead of the Philippines.

In the video clip posted by Danny Luke in Youtube (attached below), you can see that Korina is conversing with her co-anchors about the coming typhoon. Noli and Ted gave their views regarding the typhoon when Sanchez reacts saying "Kaya pa natin idasal yan para lumihis."

Noli then remarks “Sana ay hati na lang tayo, Kalahati sa Pilipinas, kalahati sa Japan" when Korina responded “Puwede bang sa kanila na lang lahat?"

De Castro then responded "Wag naman" but Sanchez  pressed on, saying, “Sa kanila na lang lahat. Parang mas kaya nila."

Korina Sanchez comment enraged many Filipino netizens and quickly become the hot topic on social media.

Here are some comment of angered netizens.

From Facebook user Val Pinlac, Very irresponsible, unreflective, insensitive...Korina seems to be very consistent on these! But she lasted this long in the industry??? Is this not indicative of the kind or quality of the Philippine journalism? Does ABSCBN have any standard? Very unprofessional and unethical!

Another Facebook user Raul J. de Vera Jr. said No one has the right to wish ill of another ... no matter how better or worse the situation it. Such an attitude can only attribute to the most ill-educated persons humanity can contribute to any given society. Sad they had a strong influence on the many. Even as a jest, such stupid words should not have been uttered out in the open. How sad.

Which also supported by another FB user Chanz Caballero Pagayon saying "Since High school... I idolized Korina Sanchez for her very consistent in industry of news casting but now...I'm very disappointed of what she did said, unprofessional...."

Meanwhile on YouTube post by Danny Luke some user defended Sanchez saying "Grabe naman kayo guys mkapang husga, tao lang din naman si Korina. Maybe concern lang sya sa Pilipinas nang nasabi nya yan, in a wrong way nga lang. Pagpasensyahan na natin, hindi naman magugunaw ang earth. Imbes manghusga at mabwisit kayo, ipagpray nlng natin na safe ang bansa. Gosh, guys ang dami kaylangan tulungan, pray na nga lang makakaya natin, ibubuhos paba natin sa hatred sa issue na to? Pasko guys. God bless us all :)"

Cristine Reyes: I’m Having a Baby

November 16, 2014
Cristine Reyes let the cat out of the bag yesterday during ASAP 19. Speculations about the actress’ pregnancy can now be put to rest as the ABS-CBN star confirms that she is indeed having a baby. In the public announcement made by Cristine she said, “Sa mga Kapamilya po natin, I want to share po sa inyong lahat that I have a wonderful blessing. I’m having a baby.”

The father of Cristine’s baby is her new boyfriend, mixed martial arts fighter Ali Khatibi.

Weeks before this confirmation, Cristine had been dodging the issue but she said the reason for that was the delicate condition of the pregnancy. Apparently, she had some bleeding during the first trimester and was advised complete bed rest by her doctor, so she was rarely seen on TV. But now she’s a hundred percent sure that she and her baby are safe.

Contrary to what other people might think Cristine said that this pregnancy didn’t come as a surprise. In fact, she and partner Ali planned it.

After the birth of their baby, Cristine and Ali will be tying the knot. But as early as now, they’re already undergoing marriage counseling in order to be more prepared for that stage in their life.

November 03, 2014
Terminally ill woman Brittany Maynard has died, but on her own terms. She ended her own life on Saturday at her home in Portland, Oregon. It wasn’t suicide. Brittany made her choice to end her own life under the Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act. A doctor gave her medications that put an end to her suffering.

Brittany suffered from glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, and had only six months to live. Her doctors explained what the disease would cause to her body and she didn’t want that kind of pain anymore, so she made a choice to end her life at her own terms. 
Before her death on Saturday Brittany posted a farewell message on Facebook, “Goodbye to all my dear friends and family that I love. Today is the day I have chosen to pass away with dignity in the face of my terminal illness….the world is a beautiful place, ravel has been my greatest teacher, my close friends and folks are the greatest givers…goodbye world. Spread good energy. Pay it forward!”

She was diagnosed in January and from that time on, knowing her time on earth was only limited, Brittany made a bucket list of things she wanted to do and she did them, with her husband and family. She went to Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, and the last place she visited was the Grand Canyon.

Girl’s Leg Turns Black and Shriveled from Snake Bite

October 28, 2014
Some victims of snakebites don’t die immediately like this 13-year-old girl from Venezuela. However, the leg where she was bitten turned black and withered. Apparently, after she was bitten, she was not immediately taken to the hospital for treatment; instead, indigenous remedies were used. A month passed before she was taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

According to the doctors, the girl suffered critical necrosis (premature death of cells) of her leg due to snake venom. This condition cannot be reversed and the leg would have to be amputated. But the bad news is the poison is still spreading in her whole body as evidenced by the other leg, which is shriveling as well. The necrosis has also caused rhabdomyolysis, a condition wherein muscle tissue will start to die.

This 13-year-old Venezuelan girl may have been spared immediate death but there’s a great likelihood that she will still die from the poison that’s spreading throughout her body. According to the doctors, she should have been given anti-venom treatment right after she was bitten.

Cedric Lee, Deniece Cornejo and Simeon Raz have been allowed to post bail

September 15, 2014
Taguig Regional Trial Court Branch 271, granted the bail plea of Cedric Lee, Zimmer Raz and Deniece Cornejo on Monday September 15, 2014.

In a 72-page decision, Judge Paz Esperanza M. Cortes of Taguig RTC Branch 271 ordered all three to post P500,000 bail.

The court said while there was an immediate turn-over of Navarro by the accused to the police station for allegedly raping Cornejo and there is a possible demand for money in exchange for the release of a certain video and trashing of the police blotter, “it is clear therefore, that the motive for that alleged illegal detention by the accused of the private complainant herein is unclear.”

“There are several hypothesis pre-offered for the single act of detention. This being so, although there is probable cause for the charging of the crime of serious illegal detention, the prosecution had failed to provide strong evidence that said illegal detention is actually serious or actually for the sake of kidnapping. In such a case, the court has the duty to grant the accused bail,” the court ruling stated.

The court added that since all the accused are “in such considerable financial condition as to afford a battery of well-known lawyer. The Court therefore deems the bail amount for each accused of P500,000 to be equitable herein.” They are facing serious illegal detention case for allegedly mauling comedian Vhong Navarro.

Meanwhile, lawyer Alma Mallonga, counsel for Navarro said they are very shocked by the court’s decision. “We are very sure that a serious crime has been committed,” Mallonga said adding that they are very confident about the evidence that they have including the CCTV footage, Navarro’s testimony as well as that of the National Bureau of Investigation, among others.

She said they would file a motion for reconsideration to contest the decision. Lawyers Howard Calleja and Concepcion Jimenez Aquino, counsels for Lee, said they welcome the positive development.

Meanwhile, the netizen post their reactions on social media, bashing the court system in our country, here are some of the comment of the netizens.

“May sinasabi siya pero hindi ko matandaan dahil nasa labas siya. Basta nagwawala siya doon dahil parang nakainom. Inaawat siya ng isang babae namin na pulis. Ayaw magpaawat kaya nauwi sa nabasag niya 'yung salamin sa sliding door,” Aride is quoted as saying in the report.

Aride said that Crawford was with an unidentified woman who left after the actor was arrested.

Marian Rivera Tops FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women 2014

July 14, 2014
Once again Marian Rivera leads the pack in this year’s “FHM 100 Sexiest!” She looked every bit the deserving title holder as she strutted her stuff on the catwalk at the World Trade Center last week. Marian wore a bright red feathery outfit complete with a flamboyant headdress. The actress flashed smiles at the adoring fans at the venue. Marian was named the No. 1 Sexiest Woman in the Philippines gathering more than 13 million votes.

It’s her third time to be named No. 1. She also won the title in 2008 and 2013.

Alice Dixon also made it to the Top 10. Though she’s already 44 years old, you’d never guess she was a day older than 25. And many of the people in the crowd thought so too because they erupted into a loud applause when Alice walked down the catwalk in her frothy purple gown with cutouts. At number 7 Alice is the first female celebrity over 40 to be included in the top 10.

Meanwhile, Aubrey Miles had a bit of wardrobe malfunction as she walked on the catwalk. She kept tugging at her bikini bottoms and at some point exposed too much skin. But the actress simply shrugged it off saying it’s just “another day of wardrobe malfunction” in her Instagram.

Rufa Mae Quinto, Diana Zubiri, Michelle Madrigal, Bangs Garcia, Mocha Girls and Rochelle Pangilinan also graced the event.
