Sharing with you a very rare moment when the great stars of yesteryears came together at Walang Tulugan's tribute to Sampaguita and LVN Stars. Both were taped last Oct. 16, 2010, Sampaguita episode was aired on the same night while LVN will be aired on October 30, a day after the birthday of LVN's matriarch Doña Sisang. Incidentally, the patriach of Sampaguita Pictures, the late Doctor Perez also celebrated his birthday a day before Sampaguita's tribute (Oct. 15).

Sampaguita stars who came were:

1) Susan Roces
2) Gloria Romero
3) Bella Flores
4) Amaparo Lucas
5) Eddie Gutierrez
6) Romeo Rivera
7) Pepito Rodriguez
8) Boy Alano
9) Gina Alajar
10) and Sheryl Cruz who represented her mom Rosemarie Sonora

LVN Stars who came were:

1) the legendary Mila del Sol (mom of Jeanne Young), the star of LVN's first film Giliw Ko in 1939, she's now 87 years old but still beautiful.

I asked her if she wants to do a soap in GMA, she said "try me" =) She appeared in ABS-CBN's Rosalka recently.

2) Lilia Dizon, the mom of Christopher, Pinky and Melissa de Leon. She's the original Ms. Body Beautiful via the film Bathaluman. She's now 82.

3) Delia Razon, the Queen of Costume Pictures, the grandmother of Carla Abellana.

4) Myrna Obligacion (wife of the late Oscar Obligacion).

5) singer Anthony Castelo, who represented his uncle Val Castelo.

Great to see all these legends, very approachable and accommodating. Pilita Corales, Dulce, Jay-R, Ogie Alcasid, Noelle Cassandra, Chris Cayzer, sang a song for them while photos and video clips of Sampaguita & LVN stars are shown at the big videowall background. - Bing Manalo
