The road to perdi­tion

OPE NOT – This colum­nist hopes that John Lloyd Cruz is not

tread­ing the road to perdi­tion. What a pity if Lloy­die loses the sup­port and af­fec­tion of the pub­lic be­cause of the messy scan­dal he’s cur­rently in­volved in.

Sure, he’s en­ti­tled to a good time, a respite from act­ing in front of the cam­era. An in­ter­lude with Ellen Adarna. But not to the ex­tent of mak­ing a fool him­self... for the whole coun­try to see.

Look, Lloy­die’s idol­ized by the pub­lic, in­clud­ing teen­ers and chil­dren. And here he is in bizarre sit­u­a­tions, look­ing dirty and un­kempt. Was he drunk, stoned?

Will Lloy­die waste the fame and for­tune he en­joys in the name of hav­ing a good time? Will ad­ver­tis­ers who value im­age and good­will back out? Will peo­ple shy away from movies and TV shows he top­bills? Hope not. RIGHT MOVE – At 40, Pi­olo Pas­cual – in all prob­a­bil­ity – re­al­izes he can’t al­ways be a ro­man­tic lead. In no time, Papa P will be giv­ing way to the young ac­tors of Star Cin­ema and ABS-CBN.

That’s how it is. As he say, “May kanya-kanyang pana­hon.”

And so pro­duc­ing movies is the right move. Think of the sleeper “Kita Kita.”

And one thing with Papa P, he isn’t in­volved in bad pub­lic­ity. He’s clean liv­ing. And it shows in his good looks, in his pleas­ant aura.

By the way, hope peo­ple will stop pres­sur­ing Papa P to get mar­ried. If he’s happy be­ing sin­gle so be it. HERE WE GO AGAIN – High­speed reader ask why the Luis Man­zano Jessy Men­di­ola tan­dem isn’t in­cluded on the “our love here to stay” list. Blame Luis’ fickle heart. Be­fore Jessy, he was madly in love with An­gel Loc­sin and Jen­ny­lyn Mer­cado. He was ready to get mar­ried, mak­ing his mom, Vilma San­tos, very happy. She’s

ex­cited to have a grand­child, be a lola.

Noth­ing came out of his “se­ri­ous” re­la­tion­ships with An­gel and Jen­ny­lyn. Seemed Luis didn’t (doesn’t) know who or what he wants.

Now, here we go again with Luis pro­claim­ing to the whole world he’s found the girl he wants to marry, Jessy.

Well, hope­fully this time Jessy’s re­ally the one Luis will bring to the al­tar. Let’s wait and see.
