MANILA – Like in Saudi Arabia, the sex videos of controversial cosmetic surgeon Hayden Kho are selling like hotcakes in Malaysia.

Online newspaper Asiaone News reported that Kho’s steamy sex videos are being sold for RM15 (P203.30) a piece.

The report quoted one pirated DVD seller as saying that last month he had sold 30 DVDs in one day alone. It said people continue to keep asking for Kho’s sex videos although these are already available on the Internet.

The cosmetic surgeon’s videos are reportedly titled “The Philippines version of Edison Chen” and the cover shows nude photographs of Kho and actress Katrina Halili.  Chen is a Hong Kong star who got involved in a scandal after his private and intimate photos with various women, including actresses, spread on the Internet in 2008.

Asiaone News said police have yet received a complaint with regard to the proliferation of the DVDs.

The Kho-Halili sex video has also reached the Middle East. Reports said DVDs there are already being sold in Al-Khobar in Saudi Arabia for 10 Saudi Riyals or P116.

Andrew Santos, an IT manager in Dammam, said the proliferation of the sex videos has brought international shame to Filipinos.

Halili files raps vs Belo et al. in sex video case

Careless whisperer Actress Katrina Halili has charged cosmetic surgeon Dr. Vicky Belo and two other individuals in the complaint she filed in connection with spreading her sex video in the Internet.

Halili, with her lawyer Raymund Palad, went to the Department of Justice to formally file criminal charges against Belo, engineer Eric Johnston Chua and Dr. Mark Herbert “Bistek” Rosario for allegedly disseminating her sex video.

Belo is the former girlfriend of Halilli’s lover, Dr. Hayden Kho, who on Friday was slapped with charges of violation of Republic Act 9262 (violence against women and children) by the National Bureau of Investigation.

“I am including in my complaint everyone involved in uploading the (sex) videos,” she told reporters, adding that she suffered so much psychological distress, emotional anguish, public ridicule and humiliation due to the release of the sex video.

She further said that because of the release of the video, she lost projects and endorsement.

The actress took her oath before State Prosecutor Romeo Senson, who said that the complainant decided to include Belo, Chua and Rosario based on new evidence gathered in the wake of the NBI’s investigation.

Among these were the affidavits submitted to the NBI and admissions made on television interviews.

In his affidavit, Chua admitted that he had been instructed by Belo to copy the sex videos of Kho from his laptop.

Chua claimed that he could not have been the one who uploaded the video in the Internet because he had deleted it even before the sex video of Halili and Kho came out in the Internet.

He further said that he did not have the master copy of the video, and he gave that sole copy in the USB to Belo.

Halili’s counsel said that it was Chua who implicated Belo when she gave that instruction to copy and save the videos to a USB before deleting the videos in the laptop of Kho.

“So he has no copy at all and the master copy (hard drive) is in the hands of Belo,” said Palad.

The NBI earlier said it is not ruling out the possibility of including Dr. Vicki Belo as accessory to the complaint after businessman Eric Johnston Chua claimed in his affidavit that he gave the master copy (hard disc) of sex videos to Belo.

Meanwhile, the NBI said that it would coordinate with the US based Web site host, YouTube, to help open the log system that would unmask the person/persons behind the initial upload of the video.

Head Agent Palmer Mallari, executive officer of the NBI Anti-Fraud and Computer Crimes Division (AFCCD), said they have to heavily rely on the technical aspect of the case to unmask those behind the initial upload on the Internet.

NBI probes leak on PGMA’s hospitalization RE: Breast implant

Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo

MANILA – The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) began Monday a probe into the leaked information on President Arroyo’s hospital stay at the Asian Hospital last week.

The NBI has already taken statements from three individuals at the hospital regarding the possible violation of the rule on doctor-patient confidentiality.

Meanwhile, all Monday appointments of the President were cancelled, with Palace officials saying it is still in connection with her self-imposed quarantine and her recent hospital stay.

Press Secretary Cerge Remonde earlier denied that Malacañang ordered the Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Alabang, Muntinlupa City to find out who told media about medical procedures done to the President while she was on self-imposed quarantine at the hospital last week.

“It is not true [that we ordered it]. If Asian Hospital is doing an investigation, they are doing it on their own and we did not request it,” Remonde told radio dzMM.

The press secretary said the President will continue to visit the medical facility because her gynecologist works there. Mrs. Arroyo also undergoes medical check-ups at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City.

He also refused to comment on Mrs. Arroyo’s failure to attend a scheduled visit to the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) in Makati City for a signing ceremony. A statement on the PSE website read: “Please be notified that Her Excellency President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s visit to PSE Ayala on Monday, July 6, 2009, is canceled.”

Remonde has been under fire since last week after he denied and then later clarified news reports that Mrs. Arroyo had checked in at the prestigious hospital to have her breast implants removed. “Si Presidente ba mukha na iyong tipo ng babae na magpapaganun (Is the President the type of woman who would do that [breast augmentation])?” the press secretary told reporters.

He later made an about-face about the breast implants, saying that she had them done 20 years ago. He denied, however, that these were the reason why she was hospitalized.

Palace officials earlier said Mrs. Arroyo volunteered to quarantine herself after a two-week trip despite relaxed Influenza A (H1N1) quarantine guidelines from the Department of Health. It was later learned that Mrs. Arroyo attended the golden wedding anniversary of a top foreign affairs official before going to hospital.

Remonde insisted that Mrs. Arroyo checked in at the hospital for self-quarantine, “and at the same time, to take the opportunity to get complete medical check-ups.”

She said the President was declared in good health after biopsies were conducted on lumps found on her breast and groin.

“The result of the biopsy is negative. The President is in good health. That’s the best proof of her health,” he said, adding that she is scheduled to meet her Cabinet on Tuesday,

He said Mrs. Arroyo will again be leaving the country to attend a meeting of foreign leaders at th 15th Non-Aligned Movement Meeting from July 15 to 16 in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm-el-Sheikh.

Another Bill Clinton Scandal

There are reports from a local newspaper in Argentina as well as the Washington Post that Bill Clinton, after a fundraiser, had a little “private” party at a strip club. Just because his wife is Secretary of State, that doesn’t mean Bill Clinton can’t visit an Argentine stripper and pay off bouncers at the strip club so he can have a completely private strip show before dining with the country’s president.

The place that he enjoyed the festivies is called El Cocodrilo, and apparently he had a decent time and got a table dance from Andrea Rincón ( see picture below) and probably some herpes. Can’t really blame the former president after all he has been through? The least he can do is get a little dance from a local South American stripper. His wife is a busy lady as Secretary of State and all. Not to mention that I don’t think Hillary has giving him any since 1996. The report, printed in mainstream newsoutlets The Washington Post and The Daily Mail, is all the talk in South and Latin America:

Bill Clinton allegedly paid $1000 to close the VIP areas to have a private “baile hot” (strip show) by Andrea Rincon. The chick in question reported to the Argentine Press that she received US$1000, which converts to roughly 3700 Argentine pesos…

Bill Clinton was on a private visit to Argentina on behalf of his non-profit, Clinton Global Initiative. After an event, Clinton along with some of his buddies, to the city’s “red zone,” where they ended up at the Crocodile Night Club, a popular strip joint.

It was there where Bill Clinton took a liking to a dancer named Andrea Rincón, who is a pop culture sex bomb in Argentina. Clinton became entranced and asked for a “private” performance from the Latin firecracker.


Clinton later dined with President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and her husband, former president Néstor Kirchner.Which country will he hit next?! Strippers, prostitutes & high end escorts anxiously await the news!

I have to be honest, the stripper is not all that hot but she is a huge step up from Monica Lewinsky. Clinton really needs to step his game up after Monica Lewinsky. I mean, for Christ sake, he was the most powerful man in the world for 8 years. Why is he choosing to settle for a half-rate stripper? He need to get one of those young hot starlets from Hollywood. Things sure have changed since the good old days of JFK and Marilyn Monroe. Anyway, much like the other woman in the Mark Sanford scandal, Clinton’s stripper friend ran straight to the media. Thus leaving me with one question: Why can’t Argentinean women keep their damn mouths shut when not in use by their lovers? LOL

And to celebrate her new International fame she just posed holding a picture of Bill Clinton: According to the Washington Post story a Clinton spokesman in New York said the story “is completely false. They were at the hotel playing cards with the former and current presidents” and “a small group of staff and friends.”

The former Big Brother Argentina (or Gran Hermano, if you prefer) star Andrea Rincón had, at first, said she and Bill Clinton shared a harmless night of dancing at the Crocodilo cabaret in Argentina, and that, yes, she was paid for her services, but not by Clinton himself.

She has now modified her story to include the fact that the former president offered her $1,000 in return for sex. The way she tells it, she was just hangin’ out, being a famewhore, when someone from Clinton’s entourage came up to her and said that Clinton wanted her to perform a strip tease for him and his buddies in a private room.

Michaels Jackson’s Pictures Before His Death.

Michael Jackson died without his nose on! These are the last ever photos of the late Michael Jackson before he was declare dead as he was brought to the hospital. Jackson was officially pronounced dead at the emergency room at the UCLA Medical Center, and there were no signs of foul play or external trauma to his body. Jackson’s body was then flown in a Sheriff’s Department helicopter from UCLA Medical Center to downtown Los Angeles for examination by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office. Michael Jackson was rushed to the hospital on Thursday, June 25, implying the pop star was perhaps still alive at that point, EMT workers are claiming he was not. The medics wanted to pronounce him dead on the scene but Michael’s personal doctor refused to let them.

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American recording artist, entertainer, and businessman. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group. Referred to as the “King of Pop” in subsequent years, five of his solo studio albums are among the world’s best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995).

In the early 1980s, he became a dominant figure in popular music and the first African-American entertainer to amass a strong crossover following on MTV. The popularity of his music videos airing on MTV, such as “Beat It”, “Billie Jean” and Thriller—credited for transforming the music video into an art form and a promotional tool—helped bring the relatively new channel to fame. Videos such as “Black or White” and “Scream” made Jackson an enduring staple on MTV in the 1990s. With stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of physically complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style influenced many hip hop, pop and contemporary R&B artists.

One of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records—including one for “Most Successful Entertainer of All Time”—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his solo career—more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era—and the sales of over 750 million albums worldwide. Cited as one of the world’s most famous men, Jackson’s highly publicized personal life, coupled with his successful career, made him a part of popular culture for almost four decades.

Brazilian Model/s???
Many people are really curious about the Brazilian Model and Hayden Kho sex video but the it is not that clear who she is due to the angle of the camera.

Some says its 19 year-old Mariana Del Rio from the Samba Brazilian-Style Corned Beef TV commercial and who was romantically linked to actor/host Cesar Montano. She already appeared in Komiks Presents Mars Ravelo’s Kapitan Boom. Some have commented its more like Ariana Barouk, former Eat Bulaga host and currently on OGAGS. While others are saying it is differently Priscilla Meirelles, the current girlfriend of John Estrada and former Miss Earth beauty queen. Census at this point seems to be pointing to the ladder.

Priscilla Meirelles is more popular than the other two, best known as Miss Earth 2004 and she also modeled for Carefree, Block & White, Nescafe and Bench. She graces the cover of several publications in the Philippines, including the local edition of Vogue Magazine and was the first to cover the 1st edition of Playboy M, latest videosagazine Philippines last April 2008.

Priscilla Meirelles and Mariana Del Rio are now talents on ABS-CBN’s Star Magic, just like Maricar Reyes, who is allegedly the girl in another Hayden Kho sex video. Last January, Priscilla was rumored as one of Hayden Kho’s girls. If Priscilla is indeed the Brazilian model in the said video available for download below, that means all the women involved in the Dr. Hayden Kho sex video scandal have worked with him in the past at ABS-CBN. For comparing purposes, here are pics of all three women starting with seemingly the main suspect Priscilla Meirelles.

Michael Jackson dies at 50

Michael Jackson with his signature move

Michael Jackson with his signature move

LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the “King of Pop” and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, died Thursday. He was 50. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation.

The circumstances of Jackson’s death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper.

Jackson’s death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music’s premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage.

His 1982 album “Thriller” — which included the blockbuster hits “Beat It,” “Billie Jean” and “Thriller” — remains the biggest-selling album of all time, with more than 100 million copies worldwide.

The public first knew him in the late 1960s, when as a boy he was the precocious, spinning lead singer of the Jackson 5, the music group he formed with his four older brothers. Among their No. 1 hits were “I Want You Back,” “ABC,” and “I’ll Be There.”

He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance.

“For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don’t have the words,” said Quincy Jones, who produced “Thriller.” “He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I’ve lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him.”

Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. In fact, he united two of music’s biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie.

But as years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure — a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while traveling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

In 2005, he was cleared of charges he molested a 13-year-old cancer survivor at Neverland in 2003. He had been accused of plying the boy with alcohol and groping him. The case took a fearsome toll on his career and image, and he fell into serious financial trouble.

Jackson was preparing for what was to be his greatest comeback: He was scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at a London arena, with the first set for July 13. He was in rehearsals in Los Angeles for the concert, an extravaganza that was to capture the classic Jackson magic: showstopping dance moves, elaborate staging and throbbing dance beats.

Singer Dionne Warwick said: “Michael was a friend and undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest entertainers that I fortunately had the pleasure of working with……..we have lost an icon in our industry.”

Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the UCLA Medical Center, which is near Jackson’s rented home, was roped off with police tape.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Michael Jackson has just died,” a woman boarding a Manhattan bus called out, shortly after the news was announced. Immediately many riders reached for their cell phones.

In New York’s Times Square, a low groan went up in the crowd when a screen flashed that Jackson had died, and people began relaying the news to friends by cell phone.

“No joke. King of Pop is no more. Wow,” Michael Harris, 36, of New York City, read from a text message a friend sent to his telephone. “It’s like when Kennedy was assassinated. I will always remember being in Times Square when Michael Jackson died.”

Edison Chen: After the sex scandal

Disappointed with the negative reception of his interview with CNN, Edison Chen still plans to return to showbiz and expressed hope intentions to leave his manager.

ediAccording to Taiwanese media reports, Chen took on an exclusive interview by CNN last month as arranged by his manager. In the interview, he spoke about the sex photos scandal and apologized to the female celebrities involved for the first time. Though both Cecilia Cheung and Gillian Chung, the two female celebrities most affected by the scandal, had accepted his apology, the public reacted negatively to the interview and Chen was slammed once again, affecting his plans to return to showbiz.

Apparently, Chen was also unhappy that the talent management company for divulging his return to Hong Kong to the media.

As a result, before leaving Hong Kong, Chen complained to his boss about his assigned manager’s inappropriate handling regarding his return to Hong Kong, and expressed his wish to leave the company.

According to various media reports, the doting and supportive boss has acceded to Chen request and the latter’s own company will handle his future showbiz assignments.

Besides his return plans being dampened, Chen’s fashion business is also not doing well.

Conservatives and religious Malaysians have expressed their repugnance over Chen’s new fashion retail store in Kuala Lumpur, as soon as news of its opening got out last week, hoping to impede the opening through public opinion.

Miley Cyrus: Nick Jonas and I Have “Reconnected”

Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas on April 11, 2009 in West Hollywood CA

Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas on April 11, 2009 in West Hollywood CA

Miley Cyrus — who split from beau Justin Gaston earlier this week — says it’s nice to be back on friendly terms with ex Nick Jonas.

“He’s my best friend, and we still hang out all the time,” she said Friday on 107.5 The River‘s Woody and Jim morning show in Nashville. “We’ve definitely reconnected. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the future, but right now we’re just kind of kicking it and hanging out as much as we can.”

See photos of stars who make up and break up

Cyrus split with Jonas at the end of 2007. She told Seventeen last year that she “bawled for a month straight” and dyed her hair black after calling it quits.

The two — who sing a duet on the Jonas Brothers’ new song, “Before The Storm — have since patched things up.

“We both just kind of saw each other and kind of decided this whole thing is kind of stupid,” Cyrus said. “We were all over the separation.”

“I’m really happy to be back in their lives,” she went on. “And our families are super happy we’re hanging out again.”

Look back at Miley’s most scandalous moments

Jonas even took a trip to Georgia to visit Cyrus, who is now shooting the drama The Last Song. On Wednesday, they went jet-skiing near Tybee Island.

“No comment,” she said when asked about the outing, though she did admit, “I am a jet ski demon!”

As for her new nose piercing, she said she is not ready to get “slammed” for the body art.

“I’ll let people think what they will,” she said. “I hope no one is upset at me for doing it. I think it’s lame for it to be such a big deal because … it’s just temporary. You can take it out.”

What prompted the piercing?

“I am a huge Kelly Clarkson fan,” she said. “And I loved when she had her nose pierced.”

A 14-year old German boy was hit in the hand by a pea-sized meteorite

Meteor hits Virginia

Meteor hits Virginia

A 14-year old German boy was hit in the hand by a pea-sized meteorite that scared the bejeezus out of him and left a scar.

“When it hit me it knocked me flying and then was still going fast enough to bury itself into the road,” Gerrit Blank said in a newspaper account. Astronomers have analyzed the object and conclude it was indeed a natural object from space, The Telegraph reports.

Most meteors vaporize in the atmosphere, creating “shooting stars,” and never reach the ground. The few that do are typically made mostly of metals. Stony space rocks, even if they are big as a car, will usually break apart or explode as they crash through the atmosphere.

There are a handful of reports of homes and cars being struck by meteorites, and many cases of space rocks streaking to the surface and being found later.

But human strikes are rare. There are no known instances of humans being killed by space rocks.

According to a SPACE.com article on the topic a few years, back:

* On November 30, 1954, Alabama housewife Ann Hodges was taking a nap on her couch when she was awakened by a 3-pound (1.4-kilogram) meteor that crashed through the roof of her house, bounced off a piece of furniture and struck her in the hip, causing a large bruise. * On October 9, 1992, a large fireball was seen streaking over the eastern United States, finally exploding into many pieces. In Peekskill, New York, one of the pieces struck a Chevrolet automobile owned by Michelle Knapp. Knapp was not in the car at the time. * On June 21, 1994, Jose Martin of Spain was driving with his wife near Madrid when a 3-pound (1.4-kilogram) meteor crashed through his windshield, bent the steering wheel and ended up in the back seat.

In 2004, a 2,000-pound space rock bigger than a refrigerator exploded in the late-night sky over Chicago, producing a large flash and a sound resembling a detonation that woke people up. Fragments rained down on that wild Chicago night, and many were collected by residents in a northern suburb.

Twilight Author Doesn’t Need So Much Space

Stephenie Meyer and Kristen Stewart

Stephenie Meyer and Kristen Stewart

Stephenie Meyer won’t be using MySpace to clear up Twilight rumors any time soon.

The author of the best-selling, four-part vampire love series announced on her official website that she is kicking her social networking page to the curb.

“It was a lot of fun while it lasted, and I really miss the early days when I could hang out with people online,” Meyer wrote. “Many of you are hilarious and insightful, and I wish it was easier for me to talk to everyone the way I used to.”

Meyer warned against being duped by impostors…

“With MySpace no longer in existence, I can now clearly state that…there is no other outlet where I communicate with people online,” Meyer continued. “I do not have a Facebook page, and I have never had one. I don’t do Twitter. So if you’re communicating with someone online that you think is me, it’s not.”

Meanwhile, Meyer gave a shout-out to Rick Riordan’s best-selling tween book series, Percy Jackson & the Olympians.

“If you’re looking for some beach reading, you may want to try [the series] if you haven’t already,” she wrote. “My son finally finished book five yesterday so I could read it today. It was a fantastic end to a fantastic series. I tip my hat to you, Mr. Riordan!”
