After flop, Marian and Dingdong get ‘uncoupled’
FINALLY, the controversial once-hot-but-now-in-decline love team of Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes will come to a close as their recent onscreen partnership, Ang Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang, ends this Friday, the same time the whole nation celebrates Labor Day.
As reported earlier, it’s their last pairing, after being the “it” couple who headlined consistently topraters Marimar and Dyesebel. And what a way to end their relationship—with their latest onscreen pairing at the basement of the ratings. Relatively speaking, of course.
Now the real test would be Marian being the lone lead star in her next project with GMA. As reported on the top-rating prime-time news program 24 Oras over the weekend, she will be the new Darna. Of course, being the sexy heroine via a telefanstasya like Darna is her métier. People love her for being the fighting temptress.
Remember that Angel Locsin became major following a string of telefantasyas, including a stint as Darna. Suddenly, she’s the babe that every boy-lesbian-man fantasized about. Even rock band Kamikazee composed an eponymous hit dedicated to Darna, which propelled them to where they are now. And they never composed anything that could equal that song.
Now with Marimar-turned-Dyesebel-turned-Babaeng Hinugot in the quagmire, as Darna Marian Rivera will again rule our world. Or so it is hoped.
