Ruffa Insecure Of Own Mom Annabelle

ANNABELLE RAMA and daughter Ruffa Gutierrez obviously enjoy working together as judge and host, respectively, of TV5’s hit artista search, “Star Factor”, as seen in their fond exchange of banter in their own Twitter accounts. Annabelle revealed that Ruffa made fun of her hairdo last Sunday, saying her curly hair makes her look like a poodle. She countered Ruffa is just insecure of her beauty. Ruffa answers that she’s not insecure at all but just wants Annabelle to look her best with a more becoming hairstyle. She even suggested her mom get her own hairstylist. Ruffa also keeps on reminding her mom to be kinder to the 18 remaining Star Factor contestants so she won’t hurt their feelings so much. But Annabelle’s defenders say they’re entertained by her candid comments.

The boy finalists are Mav Lozano (son of GMA Films exec Elaine Carriedo Lozano), Clint Gabo, Christian Samson, Kevin Francisco, Kyru Sri (balikbayan from Florida who now lives in Davao), Miguel Estenzo, Paul Montecillo and Rico de la Paz. The girl finalists Nikita McElroy (a stunning black beauty from Davao), Claire Ruiz, Christine Serrano, Gail Garcia, Jazz Ocampo, Krisha Viaje, Morisette Amon, Eula Caballero, and Ritz Alzul.

TV5 really has reason to rejoice as they hit the No. 2 spot in the AGB ratings last Saturday with 24.6%. Although GMA is still higher with 34% audience share, it bested ABS which got 21.3%. This is quite impressive considering it’s just been relaunched under Manny Pangilinan. With the introduction of more new shows, they’re confident that more viewers will switch to them and the top two networks should be on their toes to keep up with the competition that TV5 now offers.
