The year of the dragon has raced past us and we’re on the brink of 2013. But before we greet the year of the snake, let’s make our wish lists for the stars in the New Year, based on what we saw and heard in 2012. Here's mine.
· Nora Aunor: A totally-restored singing voice in time for her birthday concert in May.
· Baron Geisler: More sobriety, less brawls
· Sarah Geronimo: Freedom to love and be loved in return. She’s a big girl now!
· Angelica Panganiban and John Lloyd Cruz: A relationship that won’t succumb to the pressure of showbiz intrigues and temptations.
· John Lloyd Cruz: For his relationship with Angelica to outlive all his past romances.
· Angelica Panganiban: For her relationship with John Lloyd to outlast the one she had with Derek Ramsay.
· Andi Eigenmann: A guy who will love and accept her and her baby daughter.
· Vic Sotto: Years of happiness – and possibly marriage to Pauleen Luna.
· Sharon Cuneta: Restraint in her Twitter posts and a highly-rated talk show.
· Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo: The third child they’ve been hoping for.
· Aljur Abrenica: A good acting coach who can finally bring out the best in him.
· Vin Abrenica and Sophie Albert: These Artista Academy winners are the hope of TV5. Here’s wishing that their new soap, “Never Say Good-bye,” captures the viewers’ attention.
· Ai Ai delas Alas: Long and lasting love with her non-showbiz boyfriend.
· Dingdong Dantes: Another directorial job and more movies, this time as producer. He should never forget acting, of course. And yes, wedding bells with Marian Rivera.
· Kris Aquino: A non-showbiz boyfriend with a stronger personality than hers.
· Zendee Rose or Random Girl: For her to get out of the ‘Random Girl’ image and come up with a not-so-random hit.
· Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres: For them to discover and guest more talented Filipinos in their show.
· Charice: Peace, love and understanding from her "bashers".
