Doris Bigornia Leaves ABS-CBN To Be New Editor Of TIKTIK Magazine

IMG_3402.JPGMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She calls herself “Mutya ng Masa,” but Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte would rather call her “Reyna ng Intriga.”

It all happened during a press conference in which ABS-CBN’s Doris Bigornia played smart by asking the president who is going to be the next mayor who will fall.  It was in obvious reference to the recent police raid in Ozamiz City, in which suspected drug lord Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog was killed.

It was a question that impressed the publisher of the entertainment magazine, TIKTIK.

There are no indications that Bigornia will decline the offer.  Good for her!

L-R: Park, Kim, and Stone

HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – The hit TV series ‘Hawaii Five-O’ has just lost two of its lead Asian Actors — Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park.

Their characters, Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua, will not appear in the upcoming eighth season. The characters’ absence will be referenced in the season premiere.

Sources tell Variety that Park and Kim had been seeking pay equality with stars Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan, but were unable to reach satisfactory deals with CBS Television Studios.

But no worries, Park’s character will be played by another Asian — or at least a quarter Asian: Emma Stone.

Many will recall that Stone played a quarter Hawaiian character in the Hollywood movie, ‘Aloha.’

Sources close to The Adobo Chronicles have indicated that the TV show will have a new title beginning next season: ‘Aloha Five-O.’
