A teen actor and three of his companions were arrested for smoking marijuana during the 7107 International Music Festival in Clarkfield, Pampanga over the weekend.
Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency director general Arturo Cacdac Jr. did not identify the teen actor because of his age but he nevertheless gave a hint as to the identity of the teen actor. The director general said the 17-year-old teen actor is part of the ABS-CBN afternoon soap “Galema” and a former contestant of a hit reality TV show.
The teen actor’s companions were published because they were of age. Juan Paulo Serafica, 19; Geano Dionisio, 23, and another 17-year-old. Confiscated from the group are a steel box full of dried marijuana leaves, a stick of pot, a pipe, and a blue tablet believed to be Valium.
The suspects are facing charges of violation of Section 11 (Possession of Dangerous Drugs) and Section 15 (Use of Dangerous Drugs), Article II, of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. The two minors which include the teen actor has been brought to the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development in San Fernando, Pampanga.
Apparently, the teen actor was subsequently released. He tweeted right after saying: “just got home now after 7107 it was a crazy night!”
Deniece Cornejo joined “Hep, Hep, Hooray” on Wowowee when it was still on ABS-CBN in 2009. In that Wowowee segment, Wowowee co-host Mariel Rodriguez hailed Deniece Cornejo as a look-alike of Kapamilya talent Diane Medina. She was also asked by another Wowowee host Pokwang if she wants to join showbiz. Deniece eagerly replied and said: “Sure, why not?”
Also in 2009, she uploaded a Youtube video to promote her Multiply account.
Zoom fast to 2013, a more mature and sleek Deniece Cornejo sporting a new (surgically-enhanced?) face, is back as a self-styled international model and stylist. She produced a video and styled herself, entitled “Dark Closet International by Deniece Cornejo.”
Is Kat Alano a victim of rape by Vhong Navarro 9 years ago? This has been one of the rumors circulating after Kat Alano came out on Twitter with cryptic posts in support of Deniece Cornejo. This was further fueled by Deniece Cornejo saying in her public interviews yesterday that there are 5 women who texted their support to her who were also raped by Vhong Navarro in the past but were too afraid to come out. In Twitter, Kat Alano said: “Be brave. We are beside you. Be strong. We will prevail.” Then she followed it up with: “Why is it people are so quick to defend rapists and demonize the victims? Open your eyes people.” A follower of her replied to her post: “@katalano maybe because this time it’s the other way around.” and Kat Alano responded by saying: “no it’s not. That is an ignorant and unfounded statement.”
Kat said she does not know Deniece Cornejo or Cedric Lee personally when a basher asked her that obviously she was just saying those things because she is a friend of Deniece and Cedric, “Obviously she’s a friend of either Cedric or Deniece. :)”. Kat Alano replied: “I don’t know either of them. Be careful what you say ‘obviously’ about.”
She then posted more musings about rape: “For every idiot that says that a woman ever ASKED for it, sana mangyari din sa inyo. Then let society tell you, you asked for it.” “Read about rape and the effects it has on its victims and who the predators usually are. People here are very misinformed.”
And she posted a meaningful message to bashers who kept on sending her messages on Twitter. She said: “For those messaging me. The truth will prevail. Be patient.” Photo credits: Twitter.
