Bagging the plum prize in any contest is a distinction worthy of attention and praise. Even more so if its a TV networks first reality-based star search. Thats exactly what happened to 16- year old Eula Caballero when she was named grand winner of TV5's Star Factor.

However, it seemed like all eyes were on Eulas batchmate, Ritz Azul after the reality show ended. Ritz, who was launched via the dramaserye Nagbabagang Bulaklak,topbilled a major project way ahead of Eula. Azul also bagged the title of Amazing Female Newcomer at the Yahoo! OMG! Awards. All these occurrences reportedly led to a rivalry and cold war between the two TV5 Drama Princesses.

Inside Pinoy Showbiz caught up with Eula who came clean regarding all the rivalry rumors. The dusky Cebuana also talked about working with Supersta rNora Aunor in the dramaserye Sa Ngalan Ng Ina.

Whenever the name Nora Aunor comes up, you become emotional. How was it like working with the Superstar?

Siguro may hangover ako kasi nung natapos ang Sa Ngalan Ng Ina sobrang umiiyak ako. Nakaka-miss kasi sobrang pamilya kami doon. Kahit yung mga friendsko na not from showbiz, pag nakikita ang pictures namin parang hindi kami nagtatrabaho; may kumakain, may nag pi-picture,laging may something,parang hindi sya trabaho talaga. [Nung] first time ko maka-eksena si Nora Aunor iniisip ko ganun pala talaga ang feeling,nakakatakot, may excitement.Sinasabi nya lagi na know your lines pagdating sa set,dapat ganito ang facial expression--malaki ang mata, wag malaki ang mata. Every artista na nakakatrabaho ko, may natututunan ako.

Is it true that you are insecure of Ritz who was given a project ahead of you and who already has an award and is steadily being built up by TV5?

Ever since Nagbabagang Bulaklak, lumabas na angissuena yan. There was a time na hiya kami sa isa't isa, naging awkward kami, pero wala po talagang rivalryna nagpapataasan kami.Naging affected kami for a while sa issue na nagpapatalbugan kami. Naging awkward, pero ngayon good friends na kami. Nagtatawanan nga po kami pag naaalala namin ang mga ginagawa namin sa Star Factor.

As a newcomer in show business, how do you plan to improve so you dont end up a one-hit wonder?

Kinukuha ko lagi sa pinapayo ng
mom ko.Alam nyo sa nangyari sa amin ni Ritz, si Mommy ang mas affected. Sinasabi nya lagi na wag dapat magbago ang ugali ko, I should be nice, dapat alam ko kung ano ang tama at kung ano ang mali.Wag daw ako pumatol sa drugs kasi sabi nya pagsisisihan ko talaga. I should always keep my feet on the ground and be humble.

How do you plan to improve on your craft?

Noon, natatakot ako panuorin ang sarili ko kasi alam ko marami akong makikitang mali. Pero pinapanood ko parin kasi doon ko ma-a-assess ang sarili ko. Pero ang masasabi ko, naf rom Bagets, malaki ang na-improve ko when it comes to acting. Pag pinapanood ko sarili ko masasabi ko na sobrang off, sobrang awkward, hindi kapani-paniwala, so the next time na nasa eksena ako, alam ko na na okay ito at alam ko na kung ano ang mali. Ang dami rin po naming workshops [for] acting, voice.Nag-voice lessons kami. Sabi nila hindi naman pwede arangkada sa acting pero wala ka namang ginagawa. Actually, tinutulungan kami ng Talent 5 kasi minsan hindi namin napapanood ang sarili namin, eh. Minsan sinasamahan kami ng mga acting coach sa mga location to help us and coach us. Other than that may mga workshops naman para kaya namin ang pinapagawa sa amin sa taping.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
