entry arrow6:23 PM | Snooky, Snooky

"Ang Friendster name ko, Incandescent Angel," says Snooky Serna. This is such a sad life, and in a brave, humbling interview with PDI, she bares for all to see the warts and the flood of problems (colon growths, being fired from Captain Barbell, annulment from Ricardo Cepeda...) of the past few years. Without knowing it, Snooky -- that angel of 80's pop stardom -- has became a cautionary tale, perhaps even the most perfect illustration of the ravaging nature of show business, a miserable club whose members would include Sandara Park, Hero Angeles, Andrew McCarthy, Molly Ringwald, Jolina Magdangal, Angelu de Leon, and most of the cast members of local celebrity reality shows. (Here's Snooky on grasping for a career: "I also tried call centers, pero when they learned I was not a college graduate ... very strict sila." Yay.) What went wrong? A comparison with erstwhile rival Maricel Soriano may prove telling. Unsound choices and a habit of unprofessionalism would do the trick, I guess.
