17-year old KRISTINE HERMOSA ORILLE has just
started tossing the balls. From an ordinary Ang TV member way back
years ago, she's now hailed as showbiz's latest Crush Ng Bayan.
Gaining merits from the vanity world for her goddess-like beauty,
Tin-tin is on to capture the heart of every man.
The fun loving but sentimental lady was born on
September 9, 1983 under the sign of Virgo. She's quite tall for her
age (5'5), one reason why she looks older than her ate KATHLEEN. A
true feminine, she loves the color pink but not craving for a bunch of
Hello Kitty things. She goes for Winnie The Pooh instead, having an
array of the half-bare cartoon character's stuff all over her bedroom.
Perhaps, if there's a special Winnie The Pooh toothpick, she could've
Like most of us, she also likes the movie Notting Hill replacing an
old favorite romantic flick Pretty Woman. Everyone wants to be JULIA
ROBERTS and Kristine has the potential to be one of her kind. If not
at home, you would spot her on an outing or in a ranch riding a horse.
Her untarnishing sense for adventure and fun keeps her vibrant and
enhances her youth. Sometimes it's good to temporarily retire from
busy work especially for Tin-tin because she's a bit workaholic.
To give you a full-account of Kristine's showbiz history, read on.
This is something we prepared for the guys this time. Enjoy!
THE JOURNAL OF HER JOURNEY
Kristine was 12 when she joined Ang TV. She was
encouraged by her Ate Kathleen who also auditioned but did not
In 1997, she was launched in Star Circle Batch 5
with stars like NIKKI VALDEZ, DIMPLES ROMANA, VANESSA DEL BIANCO
and CAROL BANAWA among others.
Her first big break was the primetime miniseries
Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako where she played a frustrated lover
of MARVIN AGUSTIN.
After several months, Kristine took the lead role
in Star Drama Theater for four weeks.
She also collaborates with the cast of Munting
Paraiso and the latest teleserye Pangako Sa 'Yo with JERICHO
THE MEN IN HER LIFE...
Actually, one more reason why she entered show
business was because of her first showbiz crush PAOLO CONTIS but
we believe the feeling has already subsided.
She was linked to MARVIN AGUSTIN and later to
WOWIE DE GUZMAN who, upon guesting in Munting Paraiso, slightly
wooed her for a short time. That was a bit complicated spawning
accusations that she's a wrecker which turned out false in the
Even MO TWISTER came into the scene which began
during the airing of the kids' show Cyberkada.
She also had a crush on PATRICK GARCIA! Good thing
it remained a secret until their show Richard Loves Lucy ceased
All's well that ends well, she ended up in the
hugs of her leading man JERICHO ROSALES where fans hope they last
KRISTINE ON FAMILY TIES
Kristine loves her family a lot. She's the middle
child among the three girls. Although her dad Maximillan Orille
who's an engineer in London is miles apart, their ties keep
There were rumors between her and sister Kathleen
stating the latter suffered nervous breakdown when she was
disqualified in the audition. Both girls denied it and proved they
never got into fray over the nonsense issue.
In the house, she's stuck in her room composing
poems or just listening to music. She probably plays her favorite
song I Finally Found Someone by BARBRA STREISSAND and BRYAN ADAMS.
Most often, she kids around with her dog pets Bogs and
The epidemic among stars has spread in her system
too - texting!
WHAT ABOUT THE INTRIGUES?
Pregnant, an executive's mistress, a wrecker, flirt
ilusyonada and others more. Kristine has amazingly survived the
animosity and we know that her unripe stage in the 'biz will bring
her to even worse situations. "I pay my yaya and my driver, as
well as my van. I don't have to depend on an executive's finance
just to get by cause I can handle things myself," this was her
repartee to a controversy involving a high-ranked exec in ABS-CBN.
It's really hard to be 'Crush Ng Bayan'!
WORDS FROM JERICHO ROSALES
Eversince the phenomenal hit teleserye Pangako Sa 'Yo,
the on screen couple has been hurled by intrigues and giggling
questions. They were often teased by fans and friends in business.
Let's now ask the hunk JERICHO ROSALES about what really caught her
to cherish femme fatal Kristine. "Physically I like her eyes,
legs, hands, hips, her hair, her childish ways, her thoughtfulness
She's almost complete," says Echo.
How is their relationship as loveteam?
"Absolutely fine! We help each other and our
relationship grows each day. Hindi kami nagsasawa kahit halos
araw-araw kaming nagkikita dahil enjoy naman ako sa company niya
eh," the cute idol ends.
Kristine Hermosa struggled for each step she takes
just to maintain her reputation others are trying to stain. Despite
the harsh crowd, Tin-tin remains the most sought-after teen star in
