Sharmaine Ruffa Rama Gutiérrez was born June 24, 1974 in the Philippines.She is a Filipina model, beauty queen and actress. She was Binibining Pilipinas-World 1993 and the Miss World 1993 Second Princess.She was crowned Binibining Pilipinas-World 1993 at the Coronation Night held at the Araneta Coliseum. She is the daughter of 1960s Filipino actor Eddie Gutierrez and former actress Annabelle Rama and the older sister of identical twin actors Richard and Raymond Gutierrez.Gutierrez rose to fame in the Philippines as a teen actress in the 1980s, under Regal Films, along with actresses Carmina Villaroel and Aiko Melendez. She became part of German Moreno's That's Entertainment in the early 1990s, before becoming a beauty queen in 1993, becoming a popular celebrity in the Philippines. In 2003, she married Turkish businessman Yilmaz Bektaş in a wedding in Manila. She has two daughters named Lorin and Venice with him and resided with them in Istanbul, Turkey for a few years, though she frequently came back home to the Philippines to do commercials, television guestings and vacations.
In 2005, Gutierrez and her family was accused of tax evasion. Apparently, her organization, Ruffachild, failed to pay five million pesos that year.In 2002, Gutierrez was a GMA Network talent. She had three regular shows on GMA Network. She also hosted the first and only season of Philippines' Next Top Model, Cycle 1 on RPN-9. The show, which was a commercial failure, ended earlier than expected. On May 8, 2007, Gutierrez and Bektaş announced their mutual decision to end their four-year marriage. On June 9 and 10, 2007, Gutierrez claimed on GMA-7's Startalk and ABS-CBN's The Buzz that she was physically tortured and abused by Bektas while in Turkey. She says it's the reason why she's divorcing him. Gutierrez revealed that she had been electrocuted in a bath tub filled with water, continuously beaten for 15 hours and locked inside a cabinet. Bektas admitted to slapping her once after learning that she was still married to her previous husband, but denies torturing her. Bektas accused Gutierrez of marital infidelity and claimed she was dating another man which she denied. Gutierrez, who converted to Islam upon her marriage to Yilmaz, has since come back home to her native Philippines and became a Pentecostal Born-Again Christian instead of reverting back to her original Roman Catholic faith.wow nice.
Prior to their separation, Bektas reportedly sought the assistance of his lawyer and was able to determine that, according to marriage records from Clark County, Nevada, she was allegedly married in 1999 in Las Vegas, Nevada to a certain Richard Daloia, an issue that was first reported in 2000 but which Gutierrez has neither denied nor confirmed.
On June 10, 2007, Gutierrez admitted on ABS-CBN's The Buzz, that she married Richard Daloia and belied Bektaş' claim that she had not filed a divorce petition to nullify her first marriage. She clarified that she alone filed the petition in 2000 but did not follow up the status of the petition. Clark County’s civil, family and probate records on their website, however, shows Ruffa filed the divorce petition only on June 1, 2007. No other record of a previous petition appeared.
Gutierrez sought the help of the Philippine National Police for escort protection following reported threats to her and her daughters' life. She reportedly receives threatening messages from Bektas. The PNP granted the request for one month.
On August 19, 2007, Guttierrez confirmed that she reconciled with husband Yilmaz Bektas. Yilmaz Bektas set a condition “I plan to speak with them but in the correct and perfect time. I’m not scared … of course, I am nervous and also shy. It’s not only Ruffa and my two kids I want back, I want all the family back, like Gutierrez family and Bektas family, have to be together.
Although being married to Richard Daloia making the Bektas-Gutierrez marriage illegitimate, on September 7, Ruffa admits that she realized it was time to file for the annulment of her marriage to Yilmaz.
On August 21, in Saksi of GMA NEWS.TV, Bektas emotionally had it - "My cousin is here bringing her ring. Ruffa's ring for the proposal. I want to propose to her again in to get married with me. I'm really looking for the correct time. I first want to get the blessing from her family," however, Annabelle Rama publicly announced that she doesn't want to meet Bektas.
Yilmaz has currently moved on with his life, with his last visit in April 2008, telling Ruffa, "There is nothing to go back to."
Starting March 11, 2007, Gutierrez became Kris Aquino's temporary replacement in The Buzz when the original host filed a maternity leave. When the latter decided to permanently leave The Buzz, ABS-CBN offered her a one-year exclusive talent contract with the network. She was assigned to be the permanent replacement of Kris Aquino at The Buzz and is expected to do a TV series with the network. In that same year, Ruffa appeared in ABSCBN's remake of Kokey, where she played 'Trining'.

Tatchakorn Yeerum as Tony Jaa was born February 5, 1976 in Surin province, Isaan, Thailand), better known in the West as Tony Jaa, in Thailand as Jaa Panom, is a Thai martial artist, actor, choreographer, stuntman and director. His films include Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior, Tom-Yum-Goong (also called Warrior King or The Protector) and Ong-Bak 2: The Beginning.Tony Jaa was raised in a rural area and as he grew up he watched films by Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li at temple fairs, which was his inspiration to learn martial arts. He was so inspired by them that while he was doing chores or playing with friends, he would imitate the martial arts moves that he had seen, practicing in his father's rice paddy. Also, he would give baths to the family's elephants and somersault off their backs into the river.He initially worked as a stuntman on Panna's team, Muay Thai Stunt, appearing in many of Panna's films. He doubled for Sammo Hung when the martial-arts actor made a commercial for an energy drink that required him to grasp an elephant's tusks and somersault onto the elephant's back. He also appeared in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, as a stunt double for Robin Shou (Liu Kang), and was a stunt double in the Thai television series Insee Daeng (Red Eagle).
Yes Tony Jaa is very good actor too ,very simple but has amazing strong like an elephant.hmn

Connie Talbot (born 20 November 2000) is an English child singer from Streetly, Metropolitan Borough of Walsall, West Midlands. She rose to fame in 2007 when she reached the final of the television talent show Britain's Got Talent, where she lost to Paul Potts. Talbot was supposed to sign with Sony BMG but the label pulled out of the deal due to her age.Talbot initially auditioned for the first series of television reality show Britain's Got Talent for fun, but her confidence increased when Simon Cowell, whom she is said to have idolised,2 described her as "pure magic" and said that he would make her earn "£1 million-plus this year". The judges expected a "joke" performance and she had never taken singing lessons, but Talbot's initial performance received international press coverage. She reached the final round after winning her semi-final with a live performance of "Ben" by Michael Jackson. On the night of the final, she sang The Wizard of Oz's "Over the Rainbow", but lost to Paul Potts as a result of the call-in vote. Talbot and Potts had been joint favourites to win the series.
Yeah nice to hear the song.I like this.
