Also paki correct nalang un batch year kasi hula ko lang po un and sori too if i can’t remember the last name of the other members.

      2. ACCORDING TO ROSE:

        Rose here.

        I’ll piggy back on Tinna’s list. This is accdg to my photographic memory (wow! parang ayaw umamin na may “old timer’s disease” na ako—hehehe! !!) But before anything else, nauna po kaming dalawa ni Carole sa VIP kina Owie, Beth Jose, Marites Dabasol, Egay Bisaya, Cesar Reynon & Mon Enriquez, Manny Quilanita, Rod Baccay.

        Medyo magulo at malabo ang year ng pagpasok namin. I think late 1981 kami nag-start ni Carole withVIP.

        When VIP show started wala talagang official na VIP Dancers. Puro recording company dancers ang sumasayaw sa show ni Ate Vi, at hindi pa weekly ang dance numbers noon. Kung kelan lang masumpungan ng management magkaroon ng back-up number with Vi &/or Roderick Paulate.

        We were the first batch to audition to Maribeth as VIP Dancers: Carole Miguel-Gatdula, Rosemarie Miguel-Alejandrino, Lito Matel, Orlando (forgot the last name), Krisna (forgot her last name also). We all danced in one episode of the show which Mother choreographed ( remember ko pa ang outfit and color ng suot namin–green & red leotards & tights–parang christmas baga, actually may picture pa ako ng first official vip dancers, i think it’s in antipolo. kaya theody ipahanap mo na kay dad habang nandyan pa siya sa Pinas.) Then the following week ay kaming dalawa na lang ni Carole ang na-retain. Hindi feel ni mother yung tatlo (but all of us were recruited from the FEU Dance Group).

        Dahil hindi pa regular ang dance numbers noon ay napunta ako sa La Tondena Super Angels with Tinna, Cesar, & Mazung (aka Mona & Ramon Enriquez). Carole continued dancing with VIP with the other recording company dancers. I remember this one kasi she went on maternity leave on early 1982. Siya dapat ang nasa La Tondena kaso nabuntis siya. And Camille was born on March 1982.

        On the 1st Anniversary of the VIP Show puro recording company dancers ang nag-opening with Carole & I as the only 2 dancers na walang ka-grupo. Hence, we were called the VIP Dancers–buti na lang hindi VIP Twins—hehehehe! After that, mother asked us to recruit dancers na may background na. Doon na namin kinuha sila Inang Mazung, Odeng Mapangarap –si Cesar yon, si Pusit Owie. At the same time kasama na namin sila Timang Tinna na nanggaling na sa Japan at ni-recruit na si Dokleng Daphne, & so on & so forth.

        Before Daphne’s time, meron pa tayong kasama Tinna, yung sister ni Woody from La Tondena, she became a VIP Dancer din. I hope you remember her name. Sina Cesar & Mazung naman ang humugot sa kanya para mag-VIP. Then while we were all with VIP, we were with recording company groups na rin. Dito na kami ni Carole kinuha ng Disco Fantasy but Carole gets pregnant every 2 yrs. kaya sa akin napupunta ang bookings niya–hehe.

        In reality, hindi nasunod kung ilang years na talaga tumatakbo ang VIP/Vilma Show. When it moved to channel 7 parang medyo naiba. Hindi ko alam kung nabawasan ng taon or nadagdagan or they just continued the count mula sa Ch. 2 hanggang paglipat sa Ch. 7.

        Anyway (hi-way), here are some names of other VIP Dancers that I still remember:
        Solet (forgot her last name. During pelota court days pa rin siya. May I ballet-ballet din ang beauty niya)
        Maricris (yung laging nag-aayos ng bangs niya kahit nasa swimming pool)
        Tess (aka Marites din) – Tinna kasama natin ito sa Blue Eye sa Japan, 2 lang silang babaeng bagets.
        Sol Fernandez (Tinna, Fernandez ang last name niya)
        Aimee (yung naging girlfriend ni Eugene. Yes! Nagka-gelplen si Eugene)

        At naalala ko na ang unang pangalan ni Diwata — siya si MUTYA!!!

        O siya, low batt na ako. Pag may naalala pa ako, idadagdag ko na lang.

        Theody, I’ll try to post more old & recent pictures.

      4. Hey Sol,

        Good to hear from you. I’m glad that you’re doing well in Iloilo. Amazing how time flies but yet here we are as if it was just yesterday.

        More power to your projects and please post your pictures online for all the VIP’s to see.

        Regards,
        Egay “Bisaya” Rendon

      5. Egay,

        Jackie Din’s brother was also a VIP Dancer. I forgot his name. His picture above is right on top of Loloy. Yung isang kasama nila is Joseph. I forgot his last name–sila yung tatlong taga Hawaii. Then Ting’s last name is Pilapil (Ting Pilapil).

      6. I just tracked him down. Roldan ow lives in New York while his sister Jacqui lives in Seattle. He never mentioned where Joseph is though.
