When Shalani debuted last night with host Willie Revillame live at TV5's Willing-Willie variety show, it was clear that the President and the could-have-been-first-lady are going separate ways and, apparently, separate lives.

She certainly pales in comparison to game show host veteran Kris Aquino who also started a disastrous career in showbiz many years back.

In an interview by the Inquirer, Revillame was very optimistic at having Shalani as co-host, who need not do anything but just be herself.

"The people will love her. They will only want to look at her," he raved.

True enough, curious viewers got stuck on TV5 despite the comeback of Noli de Castro and Korina Sanchez who joined Ted Failon in ABS-CBN's TV Patrol at about the same time slot. They wanted to see what sweet Shalani can do. They couldn't even remember her voice. The ordinary viewers are incredulous, just as when the ordinary voters did not think Manny Pacquiao could do justice to being congressman.

PNoy, who is rumored to be linked with other women such as Trish Roque, who is also with TV5 as a reporter, and Kris Aquino's celebrity stylist Liz Uy, was quoted to be wishing her "really well."

And so goes the world wide entangled web of showbiz. Ho-hum.

Revillame was right. People will only want to look at her. But for how long?
