Tween Stars Confident Jake Vargas Will Be Brave Enough To Handle Mom'S Passing

AFTER IZA CALZADO loses dad Lito to the big C, it’s the turn of Jake Vargas’ mom to succumb to colon cancer on Nov. 26. Jake was interviewed in “Showbiz Central” and he was doing a mall show when his manager, Kuya Germs, informed him of his mom’s passing. “Malungkot, pero masaya na rin kasi tapos na ang paghihirap niya,” he said. “Dinarasal ko sanang umabot man lang siya ng Pasko, pero hindi na nangyari.”
His friends in “Tween Hearts”, who guested in “Showbiz Central” interviewed by Jennylyn Mercado, all condoled with him. They said they know Jake will be brave enough to handle the grief he’s now experiencing.

When they were asked who among them is the most vain, they all pointed to Derrick Monasterio, who deservedly won the most promising male newcomer award from the PMPC. “After each take, titingin siya sa salamin sa kanyang cellphone and ask ‘Okay ba ang hair ko, ang hitsura ko?” they revealed. To which Jennylyn quipped: “Siguro pati sa salamin sa ibabaw ng table, chine-check mong hitsura mo.” And the funny and irrepressible Derrick said: “Pati po sa tubig.” When he guested in “Startalk”, he was asked in what category he won and he said: “Sa best male newcomer po. Male, ha, hindi effeminate.” In fairness to Derrick, he really shows much promise. He has star quality so apparent in the first episode of “The Road” where he plays Lexi Fernandez’ boyfriend who undergoes a horrifying experience.
