JUST A THOUGHT: Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. – Kahlil Gibran

MANILA, Philippines — SARAH G. IS BABY GIRL: How else must the public take to the recent pronouncement by Gerald Anderson on the premiere telecast of “Sarah G.” last Sunday, Feb. 26 addressing the host of the show as Baby Girl?
The Popstar, on the other hand, called him Babe in an unguarded, videotaped moment during a cruise along Manila Bay, certainly one of the highlights of the debuting weekly musical-variety-cum talk show on ABS-CBN.
Without owning up to the real status of their fast growing relationship, it is evident that Gerald and Sarah have bonded romantically as evidenced not just by speech but through body language. Many of those who watched the first episode of “Sarah G.” heaved a sigh of relief as they seemed to break out into a chorus, “It’s about time.”
“Sarah G.,” the show, is projected to be a showcase of Sarah’s growing maturity as an artist and as a woman. She’s now 23, no longer a teenager and way past the age of reason.
Her new show is calculated to prove to the public the length and breadth of the changes and the experiences that have touched Sarah’s personal and professional lives and how she has learned from these.
In other words, Sarah’s audience is expecting a new dimension unfolding about her persona now that she is 23 and hosting her own “revealing” show.
For starters, “Sarah G.” did well in tickling the fancy of the TV audience. The Manila Bay shoot featuring Sarah and Gerald in a casual mood is a scoop of sorts. The video showed how the two have warmed up to each other after co-starring in two movies.

GROWING UP: Like its predecessors, “Superstar,” “VIP (Vilma in Person)” and “Sharon,” “Sarah G.” enlists the support of male co-hosts.
As if in allusion to “VIP,” Luis Manzano has been tapped as regular co-host with promise of inviting another male co-host each Sunday. That first episode, Derek Ramsay was the other man on the show. “Vilma” thrived on this formula for a long time, a tradition subconsciously being passed on to Sarah through the participation of the Batangas Governor’s own son.
Sarah’s dancing prowess is tested on the program, which she passes with flying colors. The Popstar successfully pulled off a high-tech opening song-and-dance number that had her huffing and puffing towards the end as the number also required her to sing.
While Sarah is properly costumed for the production numbers, she reverts back to her “manang” manner of dressing between numbers when she delivers her spiels or conducts interviews.
As a TV host of a non-children’s show, Sarah can use a few evening dresses with a bit of a sexy cut. One of the dresses she wore that night made her look like she was going back to school.
There has to be some consistency in what the show is trying to tell us. If “Sarah G.” is meant to bring out the woman in Sarah Geronimo through those suggestive dance steps designed by Georcelle Dapat-Sy, the same womanly touch should be seen and felt in the rest of the show.
Sarah cannot be all-woman while she whips up a sexy dance in a sexy outfit, then revert to the tweetums image of a giggly teenager that has been her template for so long. It’s about time she grew up, not just on TV but also in her choice of roles to play in movies.

Sarah Geronimo leaves it up to Gerald Anderson to confirm if he had asked her out on a date for Valentine's

MANILA, Philippines – Still coy when answering questions about her rumored closeness with Gerald Anderson, singer-actress Sarah Geronimo refuses to give definitive answer if the Kapamilya actor had asked her for a Valentine’s date.
“Paano ba?” Sarah, seemingly confused, asked when she was queried about her V-Day plans with Gerald.
“Puwede po bang secret?” she pleaded at the press conference for her latest Kapamilya show “Sarah G Live!”
But she changed her mind and almost pleadingly said, “Puwede po bang siya na lang ang tanungin ninyo kasi nahihiya po ako na manggaling sa akin (ang impormasyon).”
When pressed for a more definitive answer as she initially said earlier before the presscon that “napapagalitan na nga po ako kasi medyo tuma-tactless na ako” and that “nase-share ko na sa inyo ang lahat”, she wailed, “Mommy!” as if asking Mommy Divine to help her get through the intriguing query.
After seemingly asking her mom for help, Sarah instantly had a change of mind and welcomed the Valentine date with Gerald “kung libre naman po ako at papayag naman ang parents ko bakit naman hindi..."
She went on to share how she would spend Valentines with the actor.
“Actually, ang daming puwedeng gawin, concerts na maaaring panoorin, mag-church…,” she trailed off.
Sarah was also asked about her rumored rift with Vice Ganda who, if reports are to be believed, was miffed because her new show replaces the stand-up comedian’s “Gandang Gabi Vice”.
“Hindi ko alam ‘yung kuwento. But I heard na gagawa ng bagong show si Vice,” Sarah said.
Her director Erick Salud explained that Vice Ganda’s show is only good for one season and it was just extended. But Vice, he assured, will be back middle of this month to host a new show.
“Hindi ko po alam kung bakit may issue. Magkasama kami sa 'Hating Kapatid,'' Sarah said, adding that she will be guesting in the last episode of “Gandang Gabi Vice”.
Allegedly, Kris Aquino, Vice’s BFF, has joined the fray and the two are said to be ganging up on the singer-actress.
Clueless about it, Sarah quipped, “Hindi ko po alam."
She believes that it could not be true.
“Parang hindi naman po. Hindi naman po sila ganoon mag-isip.”
To probably end the issue, she expressed her willingness to guest in Kris’ early morning show.
“Sana mag-guest din tayo sa 'Kris TV.'"
Sarah admits that hosting her own musical show sends quivers down her spine.
“Aware naman ho ako na nag-umpisa po ‘yung mga variety show na pangalan po ang gamit nila Ms. Sharon Cuneta, Ms. Vilma Santos at Ms. Nora Aunor. Nu’ng first time pong i-offer ito sa akin ay natakot ako. Sabi ko kay Boss Vic (del Rosario), 'Boss Vic, hindi ko yata kaya. Parang masyadong malaking responsibilidad ito sa akin.'
"Pero napakagandang blessing niyo and at the same time I take it as a challenge na rin para mag-grow ako as a performer, as a person din kasi ang ganda po ng konsepto ng show,” she explained.
Sarah assured that “hindi lang siya basta musical variety show”.
“Marami po akong mase-share sa mga tao. Mas makakakita sila ng concert performers. Talagang pinag-iigihan namin para ma-satisfy ‘yung ating mga televiewers. May bago po silang makikita. Pag-iisipan namin ‘yung mga bagong production numbers na aming gagawin. Meron akong ise-share sa inyo like ‘yung mga things na hindi ko pa nagagawa. ‘Yung mga naiisip ko lang pero hindi ko pa nagagawa dahil nga may mga trabaho.”
