Filipino blogger Bryan Boy in America's Next Top Model and Manny Pacquiao's religion
MANILA, Philippines – US hit reality TV show America’s Next Top Model is making some major changes next season. Three familiar faces will not be coming back for Cycle 19, including judge Nigel Barker, runway coach J. Alexander, and creative director Jay Manuel. While many of the show’s stars have come and gone through the years – the trio has remained a staple of the show.
In a Facebook post the show’s creator, executive producer and host Tyra Banks bid farewell to the trio: “To my Nigel Barker, Miss J, and Mr Jay: Thank you for all of our years together on America’s Next Top Model. Working with you is always an absolute pleasure. Excited for what the future holds for us. XOXO, TyTy.”
The announcement comes amid preparations for a new season which will feature a college theme. The show’s producers are said to want to head in a new direction and focus more on social.
Rumored to be joining the judging panel is Filipino fashion blogger Bryan Boy. Rappler caught up with Bryan via email but he neither confirmed nor denied the report saying, “I do not comment on rumors. Sorry!”. –

Pacquiao leaving Catholic Church?

There’s buzz about world boxing champ and Sarangani Rep Manny Pacquiao contemplating leaving the Catholic Church for a Christian group. But a source close to him dismisses such talk, citing a recent dream of Pacquiao wherein God supposedly asked him, son why are you abandoning me? He woke up crying, the same source said.
So there. We don’t have the means to confirm this, however. It’s between Pacquiao and God. –

PNoy friend on the way out?

MANILA, Philippines – We have it on good authority that a key government official who happens to be a good friend of President Benigno Aquino III is on his way out. We’re not sure if this official knows about this plan. What we’re certain of, however, is that this official knows he messed up when he dealt with one controversy involving his agency in an — how shall we call it? — amateurish manner. Suffice it to say he was a big disappointment. –
