Shalani Soledad & Roman Romulo wedding: the initial details

The Shalani Soledad-Roman Romulo wedding finally has a wedding date, and it's coming sooner than expected. Here are the initial details: When: January 22, 2012 Where: St. Benedict Church in Ayala Westgrove Heights We've found this pic of the inside of the very modern village church where Shalani will make her bridal walk (photo credit: mynewcondo.com.ph). Quite uncharacteristic, if we might say, but in line with the couple's wish to have a small, simple wedding. ... Continue Reading...

Shalani Soledad in ‘blah’ cover for Preview, May 2011

I got hold (rather belatedly) of Preview magazine's latest issue with Shalani Soledad on the cover.Preview is one of my fave mags from Summit, aside from Yummy, and I always try to buy every month. Shalani, on the other hand, is one of the most searched terms on this blog. It's no wonder then that she emerged No. 1 in Google Philippines' list of 20 Most Influential Women last year, edging out the likes of Kris Aquino & Ruffa Gutierrez. But I just have to say this cover is so unappealing and doesn't do the popular cover girl justice. Maybe Shalani erred in entering a ... Continue Reading...

Shalani Soledad on Willing Willie

The news about Shalani Soledad joining Willing Willie as a co-host hogged my Facebook wall yesterday, and my friends seem to be divided on the issue. "Go girl!!" cried the fans. "Kadiri naman!," chorused the others. Methinks it's a calculated move by the popular councilor from Valenzuela City, and whether it's meant to spite the President is something we can only guess.

And ... Continue Reading...

Shalani Soledad: no lovechild

I have to admit I was saddened when the news about President Noy and Shalani's romantic split broke out. What could have happened? I was really rooting for Shalani Soledad as a very fitting First Lady, even though that's like asking for the moon ( you know how bachelor types are!) The girl simply has HUGE mass appeal. And she did campaign hard for the President. In fact, it was during one of her interviews during the campaign that gave us an insight into how good a man he is and convinced me that he's the right candidate to lead the nation. Sigh, sigh, sigh. If the ... Continue Reading...

Barby Paragas, not Barbie Palagos: Pnoy’s mystery date?

It was Barby Paragas (not Barbie Palagos) which President Noy (P-noy) , the country's most eligible bachelor, dated last Saturday at the Nuvo Restaurant in Greenbelt, Makati City. The mystery date became fodder of much speculation because it came on the heels of a rumored split between the President and his girlfriend of two years, lovely Councilor Shalani Soledad of Valenzuela City. Insiders said the 31-year old Barby is as pretty as Shalani. If she is the same Barby Paragas that shows up in an internet search of the professional network LinkedIn, indications are ...
