Ogie Diaz on rumors about Liza Soberano playing Darna, "Wait for the official announcement"

Ogie Diaz on rumors about Liza Soberano playing Darna, "Wait for the official announcement"

Buzz about Liza Soberano donning the red suit after actress Angel Locsin was officially dropped out from the project due to health reasons started to get stronger after veteran entertainment columnist Ricky Lo wrote about it earlier this week confirming Liza as the newest Darna.

Her talent manager, comedian and radio anchor Ogie Diaz, cannot help but react on the issue. On DZMM's "Sakto" on Friday where he serves as the anchor, Diaz said that he is just waiting for the official announcement of Star Cinema.

"Sa totoo lang, isa lang ang sinasabi ko, hintayin nating mag-announce ang Star Cinema", Ogie said.

"Ayaw ko pong umepal. Ayaw ko sa akin manggaling kung ano ang desisyon nila, kung si Liza ba o ibang aktres ang gaganap na Darna," he reasoned out.

Prior to this, Ogie has also asked Star Cinema executives why it's taking them long to announce the new Darna.

"Mag-a-announce kami.' Hintayin niyo lang'", was the only reply he got.

But when asked if Liza wants to play the most coveted and anticipated role, Diaz said

"Oo, gustong-gusto ni Liza maging Darna. Totoo yan, totoo yan. Siyempre sino ba naman ang ayaw maging Darna."

Ogie  also added that if it's definitely Liza, the next thing they got is who should play her sidekick "Ding"

Sooo... does his answers already a giveaway? We'll see.

They say nothing's permanent in show business. One day you're IN, the next day you're OUT. This is probably why the recently-crowned Box Office Queen Kathryn Bernardo decided to put up a business.

At age 21, Kathryn has her own business and it's grand opening today at The Block in SM North EDSA. Simply called KathNails by CKMB - it's a nail-dressing salon for fans and non-fans alike. CKMB stands for her full name Kathryn Chandria Manuel Bernardo.

Based from what we've gathered, the nail business has been in her mind since three years ago.

Congratulations, Kathryn.

Since then, Kris was no longer seen on television. Her expectation of being seen on GMA7 via her newfound manager TAPE Inc.'s Tony Tuviera failed as the top executives shut the doors and windows of the network for the Queen of All Media.

But now Kris is back, fans are asking... "Where is she returning to?"

One fan noted the phrase "where I belong" which Kris used is that she's doing a show for GMA7 as the phrase was associated  with the network a few decades ago. But most of her fans are hoping that it would be on ABS-CBN as it was her home for more than two decades.
