Martin Nievera rants on Twitter

Singer-TV host Martin Nievera turned to social networking site Twitter to express his feelings about the impending end of his late night talk show “Martin Late @ Night” five weeks from now.

"Ok tweet hearts. My biggest fear came true. Just found out martinlateatnight is only 13 episodes talaga. Then that’s it. Had high hopes sad,” Martin  tweeted on April 23.

He continued to tweet about his show exactly a week after, when he commented on what he feels is an absence of support  from the Kapamilya network.

No support

“It’s hard to try & make l@n better if I don’t have the support from upstairs. They don’t even answer my texts.”

“U can not blame me if I am not rating like the prime time shows if u don’t support me like u support them. No band no live audience? How?”

“I know I am no teleserye or noon time show but if I had their support I would last longer. Can’t stay in the fight alone. So sad”

“It feels like the station is just waiting for my season to end so they can be rid of l&n to say, “ok we gave u a show! Now go to your room!””

He denied having ill feelings towards ABS-CBN.

“Attention everyone I have no Samang loob with my kapamilya. My contract is 13  weeks. Was just hoping they liked it the way u all do &extend,” Martin tweeted on Wednesday, May 1.

He continued,  “It would be nice also to get a return call or reply to at least encourage or discourage me to improve or throw in the towel after 12.”

“I love my kapamilya & give 110 percent of myself to them. I am grateful 4 whatever they give me. But it feels like they r just waiting for13”

“Pls do not mistake my sadness for Samang loob. I am very grateful. It just feels like they r not watching & seeing my efforts. I love abscbn”

“I believe l&n has a place on abs. I see it as a nightly show, but my contract is 13fridays. my goal was to surpass that but thats nt my call”

Sad, almost pathetic

“It’s just sad almost pathetic that I have to make this much noise just to get a reply or return call. I think I have earned at least that.”

Martin was apologetic in the rest of his tweets. “Again I am not upset or Samang loob w/ my kapamilya! I love them& am grateful for whatever they give me. Just pls watch my last 5 episodes.”

“Abscbn my kapamilya is now hurt from my heart aches on twitter.?for this I apologize.never meant for this. believe in my show that’s all.”

“Pls don’t think I have been done wrong. It’s not like that. My contract Is what it is. I blame no one. I was just hopeful.”

“I would do anything for my kapamilya! That’s why I want the show to last. I can do so much for each one of them with this show!”

“Late@night may have my name in the title,but its not a show all about me. It’s a show all about whomever sits in the chair beside me.”

“Pls don’t mistake heart ache for Samang loob. I love my kapamilya! Lets just be grateful that w/all their stars&all their shows i have l&n”

“Thank u all for your support everyone but let’s not bite the hand that feeds. I am forever grateful to my kapamilya!” "Martin Late @ Night" premiered in ABS-CBN on March 1.

    When I decided to do "Dancing With The Stars," I knew it was a reality show, but I’m used to working on movies where nothing is very real. Although acting helps in being a great dancer there is no getting around the reality of learning to ACTUALLY dance! So yeah, I knew on "Dancing with the Stars" we would have to dance, but part of me figured that with some great camera tricks or some secret dance shortcuts there may be a sort of easy route through this. …

    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.

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 …
