Manay Lolit happy for Sarah and Matteo


Manay Lolit Solis is one of the people who are happy that Matteo Guidicelli and Sarah Geronimo are finally tying the knot.

She’s all for the wedding despite the fact that up to know she believes that Gerald Anderson is the right guy for Sarah.

“Kasi kahit anong sabihin mo ang ganda-ganda nun na may lalaking magpapakasal sa ‘yo. Saka siguro ang ganda-ganda ng magiging anak n’yo dahil Italyano si Matteo,” Lolit goes, referring to Sarah. “Kahit ‘di natuloy ang bigay kong trip to Paris sa inyo ni Gerald.”

“Kahit ang gusto ko ay si Gerald, at least hindi ka igo-ghosting noh. Pakakasalan ka. Eh si Gerald baka i-ghosting ka noh,” adds Lolit, who’s now a certified social media influencer.

Long, long ago, the talk was that Sarah and Gerald were once an item but that they broke up.

Meanwhile, Pinoy Big Brother Lucky 7 Second Big Placer Kisses Delavin has left the Star Magic fold and moved to AAA (Triple A) Talent Management, the talent management arm of APT Entertainment.

Kisses Delavin signs a management contract with Triple A, the talent management arm of APT Entertainment, which is headed by Mike Tuviera and Rams David.

Kisses signed the contract with Triple A yesterday at the Sequioa Hotel with Triple A bosses Mike Tuviera and Rams David in attendance.

Asked what prompted her to make the move, Kisses said she “wanted to explore more opportunities pero at the end of the day, I’m always thankful for everything that I achieved through the help of PBB (Pinoy Big Brother) where I started.”

Her leave-taking from Star Magic was cordial. “Nag-wait po ako na matapos first ang contract bago mag-sign ng another one. And then, personally po, pumunta ako sa office ng Star Magic and ng everyone, from the higher boss and to all the staff na nakasama ko, pinasalamatan ko po sila and gusto ko pong sabihin sa kanila na no matter what, I’m always thankful for them,” Kisses said.

She let on that it was through Marian Rivera that she met Rams David. “Na-meet ko po si tito Rams through Ate Marian before. Nagkita po kami sa Guillermo Awards and then, nagkita rin po kami sa fashion show. And ‘yun. I just felt that he genuinely cares for me and naisipan ko po na maganda po ‘yung APT.”

Rams corroborated what Kisses said. “We made sure na maayos ang pagpapaalam nila sa ABS-CBN because we respect their contract and their talents and the management. Importante ‘yung respeto sa samahan lalo na sa industry,” he said.

Direk Mike announced that Kisses will do three films for APT Entertainment in 2020 — a romantic-comedy, a family ensemble drama and a heavy drama.

Rams said the bosses at GMA 7 want to talk to Kisses about TV projects.

Speaking of Marian “Go Local” is one of the advocacies of Marian, which means she’ll be patronizing local brands, down to her clothing and shoes.

To make her point, she wore a local brand dress during the renewal of her contract with Reverie by Beautéderm Home, which she endorses.

Marian said her advocacy began when she became an endorser of Kultura.

“Namulat ang mata ko nang inendorso ko talaga ang Kultura. Nakita ko kung gaano kaganda at kagaling ng Pinoy sa paggawa talaga ng iba’t ibang klaseng produkto. ‘Yun talaga ‘yun, eh. Gawang Pinoy. Suportahan natin ang gawang Pinoy,” she said.

Maria she has ditched her imported signature bags and shoes. “Wala na siya. Binenta ko tapos, binili ko ng mga katutubong damit.”

Even her daughters Zia and Ziggy are going local, Marian said.

She’s happy re-signing with Beautéderm, which started making decorative candles and has plans to branch out to other lighting products.

Beautéderm president and CEO Rhea Anicoche-Tan said she is thankful to Marian accepting the offer to be the company’s endorser.
