At the top of the list, and for sure this is not subject to arguments and debates, is the Philippine Entertainment Portal.  What makes this site different from other showbiz news portal is that the site has more professional look compared with others.

While you can say that showbiz stories of the Philippine Daily Inquirer is not as comprehensive like that of PEP.ph, its advantage is that it has well respected showbiz columnists in their turf; Nestor U Torre.  He doesn’t write about showbiz news but rather share his analytical point about showbiz, be it personality profile, events analysis, or career prognosis.  One might think that this section of Inquirer.net only publishes serious showbiz stories, then you must take time to read their no names department and have fun trying to guess the personalities in the blind items.  Another aspect and the most fun portion of the site is the comment section of every showbiz stories it published.  You can read very interesting reactions ranging from serious to the dumbest ones.

Starmometer


This site gained notoriety when it was accused as the source of leak ofthe final results of Asia’s Got Talent.  Apparently, the site owner was in the audience during the live recording of the grand finals telecast of the reality TV show.  This site is a must if you want showbiz news, TV ratings, rantings and ravings from fand Kapamilya news.  Yes, this site like any other showbiz portal PEP.ph for example, also publishes the latest weekly TV ratings both from Kantar and AGB Nielsen. Read the readers comments and enjoy their verbal tussle with each other claiming GMA-7 or ABS–CBN is the best TV station in the country.  However, if you have been following this site, you will notice that news items and stories here tend to skew more on ABS-CBN and majority of the commenters are Kapamilya fans.

Mykiru Isyusero


Don’t let the name fool you and think that this site is all about “kabaklaan (homosexuality).  The site is similar to Starmometer in terms of showbiz news and stories and even presentation.

Remate Online


Just like Bandera Online, showbiz stories here are more on the vulgar side and after reading the news, you will realize that you are reading a paid advertisement or promotional gimmick for a showbiz personality.  One of the best things about reading Pinoy showbiz news stories in here is that writers have uncanny way of connecting stories and personalities and you suddenly remember the blind items you read in Inquirer.net and presto, the mystery is solved.

Abante


This is part of the triumvirate of the most popular tabloids in the Philippines.  Abante is also known for sex stories in its street version; however, the site is also a good source of showbiz stories and you will be enticed to read the news due to its screaming headlines.

Pinoy Parrazi


Sometimes, this online site gets hold of breaking showbiz or exclusive stories.  However, lately, it just merely re-echos what other online showbiz news are reporting.  In terms of treatment, this site can be likened to PEP.ph however, the latter has glossier site appearance but in terms of content, this site is more updated.  And, the site tend to favor scandalous stories as the blind items sits prominently on the site page and a little bit further down below you have trending stories where you can read the latest nip slip in the movie world.
