Blogatorials: The Kim Chiu-Erich Gonzales Rivalry

Rivalries give excitement to showbusiness. Remember Vilma Santos-Nora Aunor, Sharon Cuneta-Maricel Soriano, Judy Ann Santos-Claudine Barretto, so now ABS-CBN is strengthening the rivalry of two of their hottest young actresses, Erich Gonzales and Kim Chiu.

Erich and Kim are both product of reality/talent shows and are part of Chiurogogobaschu, a group of girlfriends which also includes Melissa Ricks and Empress. Earlier this year, the two were gossipped of having a rift. ABS-CBN is now using this rivalry to boost more the career of these two young big stars. They were casted as the young Lorna Tolentino and Amy Austria on Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. Now that Erich's Maria la del Barrio will premiere this August on Primetime Bida, Kim's Binondo Girl will also head on collision in the primetime block.

What else? Erich is said to be doing a movie with Thai hearthrob Mario Maurer, while Kim will do a movie with the Star of all Season Vilma Santos.

The rivalry between the two ABS-CBN homegrown stars just proved that all the biggest stars are in ABS-CBN.
