i was dying to post this even before the weekend came but laziness won the best of me.
i believe that most of us are aware of GMA-7’s revived reality TV show, Celebrity Duets. the show’s first season proved to be quite successful for it was awarded with a new season. the contest basically showcases the singing prowess of celebrity contestants. the new season, Celebrity Duets: ‘Let’s Duet Again,’ has for its new line-up of contestants, the one and only MMDA Chairman Bayani Fernando.
here is a Manila Standard Today article of the new season of the show.
aside from nailing the new singing contest, Fernando also sealed the deal on running for president for the 2010 Presidential Elections by declaring his intentions openly. GMAnews.tv reported that our determined presidentiable does not care even if his party does not carry him on the party banner. here’s another take on the issue by Manila Times.
This Inquirer article revealed a lot for Fernando’s intentions for joining the singing contest. Aside from the huge media exposure, he is banking on using his would-be winnings to finance his candidacy.
despite the queerness of it all, Manila Standard Today columnist Bong Austero has this to say about politicians as entertainers.
aside from my previous post on Jojo Robles’ tirade on Fernando’s breaking into the presidential race, the Inquirer also lambasted Fernando for being ‘the earliest bird’ to run. Read the article here.
but despite all the pizzazz and the political squabble that Fernando is shaking up these days, he revived an old scheme of his – putting shirts on topless barakos roaming the streets. and this time, he gives them shirts. read it here.
