Kuya Germs And The Story Of His Best Friend Big Star Who Refuses To Listen To Him

WE GOT TO talk to Kuya Germs at the presscon of “Guni-Guni” where he showed a video paying tribute to Mother Lily and Regal’s 52nd anniversary in showbiz. The video is a collection of clippings showing stars of the 80s performing musical numbers in Kuya Germs’ “GMA Supershow”, definitely a collector’s item.

Kuya Germs told us a story about a big star who he has been helping all these years. It shows how good and loyal a friend he is and we felt sad for his friend who doesn’t seem to value his friendship. How we wish we could write about it here but Kuya Germs made us promise not to do so as his story would surely put his friend in a bad light. This friend even went abroad recently and Kuya Germs shouldered the plane fare for a business class ticket, including that of his friend’s long time companion. And yet this friend won't even listen to Kuya Germs advice on how to improve one's life and career.

We asked Kuya Germs how his ward Jake Vargas is now that he has no show with GMA-7? “He just finished an indie movie, ‘Delusyon’, about drug addiction directed by Buboy Tan,” he says. “He’s with Ara Mina and Romano Vasquez. Very challenging ang role niya as a drug addict at talaga raw pinapalakpakan ng mga tao sa set ang husay niyang umarte sa bawat eksena. This is produced by Joe Angelo, dating taga-‘That’s Entertainment’ who now lives in Cabanatuan. Ipalalabas daw ito in schools to show young people the bad effects of drugs. Ako rin, I just finished an indie movie about horse racing, ‘Talo, Panalo, Patas’. Trilogy ito, drama yung sa’kin, ako yung ‘Talo’. Si Eddie Garcia ang nasa ‘Panalo’, si Boots Anson Roa naman ang nasa ‘Patas’.”
