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.

Eclipse: Casting for Third Twilight Flick Underway

Marc Malkin Marc Malkin

Los Angeles (E! Online) – Casting for the third Twilight movie has begun.

We got our hands on a casting notice for at least three characters in Eclipse.

Find out just what director David Slade is looking for. However, we must warn you that there are a few spoilers…

Riley “is a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria,” the notice reads. He’s in his early to mid 20s and “plays an integral role in Victoria’s attempt to murder Bella Swan.”

There are two more members of the Quileute tribe and La Push wolf pack in Eclipse. Like New Moon, they are looking for Native American or First Nations actors to fill the roles.

“Seth Clearwater is a “tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin,” the notice reads. “Seth idolizes Jacob.”

Seth’s big sister is 19-year-old Leah Clearwater and the only female member of La Push: “She is tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair. She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues.”

Now that Eclipse is up and running, what about the fourth, Breaking Dawn? As much as everyone in the cast wants it to happen, it still sounds like nothing’s official…yet.

“I’m signed for three,” Peter Facinelli told me at the MTV Movie Awards. “I’m hoping that they make four. I mean, if New Moon does well, I think they’ll make four.”

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have said they want to make Breaking Dawn, too.

When asked about four, Ashley Greene said, “I can’t even think that far in advance.”

Or maybe she can.

“They’re just going to have to make a Twilight Five,” she cracked. “I will be forever known as a Twilight girl.”

Greene and Kellan Lutz said they’ll start shooting Eclipse in August.
