Sarah Geronimo relieved

Sarah Geronimo is let out a sigh of relief now that her name is no longer being dragged into the break-up of John Lloyd Cruz and stylist Liz Uy. Fingers were pointing at her when news about the Cruz-Uy split had breaked-out but the pop princess strongly denied the allegation.

The attention of the public shifted to John Llyod and Ruffa Gutierrez’s alleged budding love affair and the singer admitted that she was “somehow relieved” by this.

Sarah said during the launching of Careline's newest commercial: "Kasi may image akong inaalagaan sa mga kabataan. At iyong ma-involve sa ganoong intriga, something serious, ay talagang hindi biro. Relieved lang."

Regine Velasquez has A(H1N1)

Miss Regine Velasquez, tested positive for the influenza A(H1N1) virus but there's no need to alarm cause she has already recovered. She got infected by the virus days before her much-awaited guesting in Charice's first major concert last June 27 at SMX Convention Center. Regine says: "Mabilis lang pero buti na lang hindi naman matinding strain. I found out I was already OK kasi sa dami ng nagpa-pa-checkup (na-delay yong result ng swab test)." Regine was ill for 10 days but had already recovered since she has a strong immunity system, that's good for her. According to her she may have gotten the virus during one of her shows. She said that during the quarantine period, she wore a mask so as not to infect people close to her.

KC speaks about being involved in Hayden Kho scandal

Finally, KC Concepcion has finally broken her silence on the issue linking her to the sex video scandal. The star of the upcoming “Lovers in Paris” disputed speculations that she also has a sex video with Dr. Hayden Kho and that her mom, Megastar Sharon Cuneta, purportedly paid P20 million to make sure that it would not spread on the Internet.

Kc says: "Kung ano ang sinabi ni mom iyon ang totoo. Kung may statement din si dad (Sen. Francis Pangilinan) iyon na. Namatay na din iyon (sex video issue) and honestly there's nothing I can say right now." Cuneta already debunked the rumors last week. "Kung totoo 'yon ay hindi ako makakaharap sa inyo (press) kasi I cannot lie. Wala talaga, there's no truth talaga.” Cuneta added: "Sabi parang binayaran ko, sabi ko 'ipakulong ko kaya muna siya bago ako maglabas ng 20 million.'"

Talk is rife that Concepcion was unknowingly being videotaped by Kho while the two were having sex just like in the case of actresses Katrina Halili and Maricar Reyes. Concepcion was not the only celebrity whose name was dragged into the controversy. Earlier, Bea Alonzo laughed off a rumor linking her to Kho’s sex videos. Alonzo maintained that she was never introduced to the cosmetic surgeon.
