Pilar Mateo– Veteran Entertainment Journalist. MARIA PILAR CONDALOR MATEO OCTOBER 12, 1959 Single, No kids Presently works as a freelance columnist for major tabloids (Hataw and Pilipino Mirror) and Online (SNI (Showbiz News Intrigues) and Showbiz Republika). Works as publicist to Jomari Yllana, and other projects. Studied at: Esteban Abada Elementary School-grade I 1966-1967 P. Burgos Elementary School-grades II-VI 1967-1972 UST-EHS (Education High School) 1972-1976 UST-ARTLETS (AB-JOURNALISM) 1976-1980. I started working in the business (showbusiness) as a publicist to Ms. Cielito ‘Mahal’ del Mundo right after I graduated from college. Although before that, I worked as a casual for GenTelDir (General telephone Director-Yellow Pages). I went full time with my ‘writing career’ through my mentors Tito Nards (Leonardo Charbet (deceased) of Kislap Publications): Fernando Collera (Modern Romances and true Confessions); Gil Villasana (deceased) and Uncle Mars Ravelo (deceased) of R.A.R. Publications-publishing Teenworld and Bulaklak Magazine then. The next years, my writing career flourished and wrote for other magazine-Jingle Clan Publications, Artista Magazine, Orig, Movieflash and more. I am now celebrating my 40th year as a showbiz/entertainment writer/reporter. I have worked with most of the artists since that time-as their publicist -Ace Vergel (deceased), Rey Valera, Julie Vega (deceased), Maricel Soriano, Jean Garcia, Gardo Versoza, Piolo Pascual, Stella Ruiz, Aiko Melendez, Amanda Page, Rachel and Lani Lobangco, foreign singer Ted Ito, the Library comedy bar, Klownz, Zirkoh, Teri Onor, Leonard Obal, Ara Mina, Kris Aquino, Allan K., the Superstar Nora Aunor and more.
When I became a part of a group called Special People headed by Boy C. de Guia, we handled PR, too for major stars like Phillip Salvador, Christopher de Leon, Rey Malonzo, Marianne dela Riva, Coney Reyes, Helen Vela (Deceased), director Lino Brocka (deceased), Dennis Roldan, Jaclyn Jose, Alma Moreno, Dolphy, and more. Handled projects for major productions like Solar Films, Seiko Films, Regal Films and Viva Films. Produced several shows at the Library Comedy Bar-featuring their home-grown talents like Allan K., Bobby Solis, Phillip Lazaro and more. For almost five decades, this has been my bread and butter. Not a lucrative job as many would say, but this is where I found my calling.
Received various writing awards from the PMPC (Philippine Movie Press Club) Writing Contest for my columns (HOT COPY Magazine) and articles (TEENWORLD, BULAKLAK and FAME MAGAZINES). Had a talk show with Rod Samson and Jun Lalin in IBC-13 called “Showbiz Talkies”. Appeared in several guestings in “See True”, “Nothing But The Truth”. Also had a segment with Aster Amoyo and Dolly Ann Carvajal for “SHOWBIZ LINGO”. Also worked in production for shows aired in Channel 4-“Starbright” and “Starnews” hosted by Boy de Guia. Held positions as Treasurer and Secretary for PMPC (Philippine Movie Press Club) and now presently the Secretary of ENPRESS (Entertainment Press Society), Inc. Supports charitable institutions like the White Cross, CHILD HAUS, UNICEF and House of Refuge. All through these years, I may be in a world or in a career where people look at my job as something trashy, scandalous or filled with filth. But in my own little way, I continue to uphold the truth and to serve my readers with the teachings and the creed of a true-blue Journalist. To work my way for the greater glory of God. I have dedicated most of my life in writing. Building images of celebrities. And as I attain spiritual glory in my solitary life-I am aiming to be able to carry God’s mission and calling-to inspire more and not be a slave to the material things this world has offered me in the first place. For my spiritual enlightenment, to uphold the virtues and the values my alma mater has gifted me with-to be ‘totally’ a child of God is to continue serving for His greater glory. Though how arduous being in the entertainment world is, the best way is to keep the faith. And continue living a Godly life. (30)
