July 17 will mark the first year anniversary of the Bratinella Bitch Babe Club also known as the 3B-Club. They were known to be fearless, love to gamble and bet, party goers, socialites, and those who are not to mess up with.
But wait… they are not really what you think of for the 3B-Club doesn’t really exist. Yeah, you read it right people… They are all fictional characters of an 8 parts series. The club was formed to mark the first ever series of Tagalog online pocketbook collaborated by not 2 but more than 3 writers… The Bratinella Bitch Babe Series!
July 17 of year 2010, naka-isip si ate Tinz gumawa ng series gawa ng pagpupumilit ng makulit na si Empresz na magpagawa ng story kay Krizia (of her with the kontrabida role?). Out of the blue, our favorite beautiful ate Tinz decided that it should be titled as Bratinella Bitch Babe Series.
Unexpectedly, nadawit ang name ko to be part of the series, not as a writer but as member of the fictional club. Names involved were Ate Laine, Ate Clay, Claire, and last was Mary.
The members as well as the writers were all excited about the series. Bumaha ang emails ko at notification boards ko… all coming from the Toppers involved. Apat ang nagsilbing writers while the remaining people including me just give opinion and additional information to be included in the series. Nakakatawa dahil nandyan ang padamihan ng yaman ng mga characters. It even came to a point na ilan sa member ay tila nagkairingan pero sa bandang huli nanaig din ang walang kupas na samahan ng mga Toppers.
July 26, 2010… 9 days after the group was formed ay natapos ang 8 covers for the series (oh, diba? Excited nga!) Concepts for the series and each character’s stories were made. At nang ianunsyo sa public (TOP community) ang paglabas ng series ay hindi rin napigilan ang excitement ng mga readers. The first plan was for it to be released as e-book (pdf file) na later on ay nabago.
Line up of characters:
KRIZIA as Krizsy
CLAIRE as Claire
LAINE as Laine
MARY as Brie
EMPRESZ as Empress
TINZZ as Tinzz
CLAYOF as Choie
MARIZ as Cheenie
First line up of writers:
Laine Favela - The Foxy Bombshell versus the UngentleMan, Mary, the Seducing Genius
Diozsa - Bitch Babe meets Mr. Head Turner, The Dangerous Ms. Linden
Clay - The Tigress Untamed Heart, I’m Stuck with You
Empresz - Necesito Un Hombre, I Ran Away with My Heart
Before the deadline may mga pangyayaring hindi maiwasan ng ilan. So, writers, members and TOP officials decided to make changes. I quote, “What happened? Si Ms. Clay ay hindi naituloy ang akda dahil sa personal problem, we understand that. And Diozsa? She suddenly got lost, with no communications at all—the deadline's day itself. Anyway, hindi naman magpapaliwanag 'yun kung ano ang nangyari sa kaniya, and if she explain, I doubt it.” Un-quote!
Second Line up of Writers:
Laine Favela - The Foxy Bombshell versus The UngentleMan, Mary, The Seducing Genius, The Dangerous Ms. Linden.
Empresz - Necesito Un Hombre, I Ran Away with My Heart, Bitch Babe meets Mr. Head Turner
Sweetlemon + Athena Shih - I’m Stuck with You
Despite those issues, nagpatuloy ang pamamayagpag ng series. Hell, yeah! We survived!
FINDING THE BRATS?
Nagkakilala sina Empress (Empresz) at Krizsy (Krizia) noong grade school (drop-out noong grade 6 si Krizsy. lumipat sya sa isang school at nakilala nya ang isang brat sa katauhan ni Empress.)
Pagtuntong ng 1styr highschool, nakilala nila sina Laine (2nd yr hs - Laine), Tinzz (1st yr hs - Tinzz) at Chloie(2ndyr hs - Clay). Sa kalagitnaan ng markahan ay may isang transferee, si Cheenie(1st yr - Mariz) na naging kaibigan din nila dahil nga mga bad girls sila.
Si Cheenie ay na-accelerate noong 2nd year high school siya at lumipat ng Linden International University para mag-college.
After HS, lumipat si Empress, Laine, at Tinzz sa St. Benedict University (napasama lang si Empress dahil pinapustahang-bf nya ang kapatid ni Laine na si Warren - na laging kasama ang mga heartthobs).
Si Chloie ay nag-aral sa Bellmar University ngunit napadpad sya sa St. Benedict dahil may research syang gagawin (after 3years, 'yung love story ni Chloie e naganap noong mga 3rd yr college palang ang ilang bratz na sina Empress, Tinzz, Krizsy, Claire. Si Chloie ay 4th yr college na nu’n)
Si Krizsy ay sa Linden International University nag-college, sinundan niya si Cheenie doon dahil marami na sila kung sasali pa siya sa St. Benedict.
Nakilala ni Krizsy si Claire (Claire), ang pampitong myembro, noong 1st yr college at sinasamahan ang malungkot na dalaga dahil kaka-break-up palang nito sa bf nito. Walang progress, after 1yr, pumunta ang mga bratz sa italy para mamasyal dahil broken hearted ang dalawa sa grupo, sina Empress (guilty kay Warren), Claire (bitter parin sa break up nila ng ex)
They were just 18-20 years old back then, nakilala nila ang huling myembro ng 3B-Club sa Italy, si Brie (Mary) (na 16 y/o pero matatapos na sa college) lagi nila itong kasama noong nasa italya pa sila at maaasahan ito.
Currently ay tatlong storya na ng serye ang nailabas ng TOP and if you’re all interested to know more about the colorful life of the BRATS, visit http://tagalogonlinepocketbook.com!
