50 Cent goes after Pacquiao
It seems Floyd Mayweather has found an ally in friend 50 Cent to attack Pinoy Pride Manny Pacquiao. In his recent tweets (where else could all this hate be posted?) the rapper repeatedly criticized the Pinoy boxer in his March 5 posts to the point of calling him “Steroid Pacquiao.”
The rapper alleged that Pacman had been taking steroids during his fights and is the reason why the Pinoy continues to refuse random blood testing tweeting, “If Charlie Scheen can take a test I know Manny Pacquiao . . . could take a blood test.”
He said Pacquiao fights Mayweather’s “leftovers” like Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, and Shane Mosley. The Pacquiao vs. Mosley fight will take place on May 7 in Las Vegas.
It seems 50 Cent also wants to have a say as to where Manny could spend his earnings, “he makes money in the US an take it to his country and feed his people @FloydMayweather makes money in the US and feed the homeless.”
He also has this message for those reading his tweets; “If anybody that’s following me think that Steroid Pacquiao with 3 losses can beat are 41-0 American champ @FloydMayweather stop following me.”

Is John Estrada regretting his return to ABS-CBN and/or vice versa?
It appears that everything is not as Happy, Yipee Yehey as it seems.
In a recent column, Cristy Fermin says she received news that John Estrada apparently got irked and threatened to return to TV 5 after a staff corrected the host for making a mistake in explaining the mechanics of one of their games.
Estrada apparently got irritated and said “Ginaganyan ninyo ako? Gusto n’yo tawagan ko si Willie Revillame? Gusto nyo bumalik na ako ulit sa TV 5?” quoted the article.
The staff apparently related the incident to ABS-CBN executive Linggit Tan.
Fermin further wrote in her column that her informant said Estrada had been quite hot-headed and that the show’s staff was not too comfortable working with Estrada.
During my last interview with Estrada, he openly expressed his appreciation for being given the chance to host a noontime show again and for being welcomed back to ABS-CBN.
Is the pressure getting too much for Estrada?
