The local entertainment press community, at one point, was surprised seeing former sexy star Lyka Ugarte appearing as an executive working for popular mall chain SM. To some, it was a curious move for the one-time showbiz star best remembered for being the object of desire of Eddie Garcia’s philandering character in a hilarious and now classic comedy movie opposite Gloria Diaz, the wife, in “May Lamok sa Loob ng Kulambo.” There’s nothing wrong with her move, only that it was unprecedented, at least to popular notion.
Now comes Steph Henares, former talent of GMA Artist Center who’s now with Viva. Some members of showbiz media were reacquainted to her after, in her current work as a PR manager for SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc., she hosted two events last week. The first was the concert of Australian act Sheppard at the Mall of Asia held last August 11. The second was the screening of “Inside Out” held at SM Aura in Taguig last Saturday August 15 that went with a special program staged for kids and parents.
“For me this is a challenge that I have enjoyed dealing with. For one, it is related to the course I took up in college,” she told this writer.
She took up a course that involved organization and communication which essentially embrace public relations work.
Her difference with Lyka is the fact that she hasn’t peaked yet as a a showbiz figure and yet she went in to equip herself more in the corporate world. In addition, she is a Henares and the surname itself imbues prominence and rich roots.
Lyka may have suffered some injustice from detractors who labeled her as a has-been starlet trying to make ends meet – something she definitely did not deserve.
Steph imparted that the people who hired her we’re actually looking for a showbiz person who can do high-level corporate work. In fairness with Lyka, she likewise fitted the bill.
“It’s interesting to be at the other side of the fence, being host to media people instead of being the subject for their interviews. But I’m seeing this as a way of even improving myself as a professional and as a person.”
Well, she’s still a significant interviewee, especially with her background and maybe untapped star potential.

When Kiel and I went on our first date, Chok was with her. So I can say he was there from the very beginning. Kung baga - ka date ko rin cya hahaha. When Kiel and I moved to our very first nest, Chok was also with us. Almost every first in Kiel and my life together -- he was there. There was a period that we went through a rough patch and we became strangers for awhile but with God's intervention everything was resolved. We are now back to where we were -- happy as a family.
Chok will always have a special place in my heart. He is one of the funniest person I know and would always make me laugh.
This year, he specially requested me to cook stuffed bell peppers for him which I gladly and lovingly did.
Happy Birthday Chokboy...May all the wishes your heart desire be granted and more....
