Marian Rivera has soft spot for poor children

MARIAN RIVERA is thankful to her fans who sponsored a special screening of her filmfest entry, "Super Inday and the Golden Bibe", for indigent kids who can't afford to pay for it in theaters. Marian has a soft spot for poor kids and has already helped three kids afflicted with the big C who were so happy to see her in person but later succumbed to the fatal ailment. "Mahal ko ang mga bata, lalo na yung deprived because of poverty or disease kasi mga inosente silang walang kalaban-laban," she says. "Kaya nagpapasalamat ako sa fans kong nag-sponsor ng screening ng 'Super Inday' dahil I saw for myself na napasaya talaga yung mga batang nanood."

This was shown in "Showbiz Central" and it's obvious that Marian is one top actress who has a charitable heart. "Showbiz Central" also showed an interview with Ogie Alcasid's first wife, Michelle Van Eimeren, who said she's very happy for her ex-husband and new wife Regine Velasquez. It's so nice to hear Michelle still speaking Tagalog so fluently. All the foreign actors who want to learn Tagalog fast, like the Brapanese models, should get tips from her. 

A new segment in "Showbiz Central" that clicked well with the viewers is Unli-Tsismis, where viewers themselves send the questions asked directly to their fave stars who then answer them on cam. They should have more of this kind of interaction between stars and fans.
