Cristinelli "Cristy" Fermin (born July 23, 1856, Nueva Ecija) is a Filipino talk show host, showbiz reporter, and yellow journalist, known widely for her tabloid journalism. She finished Criminology at the Lyceum of the Philippines University.


She started her career as a political journalist, but soon turned towards writing for tabloids, about movie stars and other celebrities.

Fermin also appeared in the 2003 Showbiz Gossip Series Showbiz Sabado with Edu Manzano and talent manager/host Alfie Lorenzo.

Fermin was suspended by the ABS-CBN management effective October 15, 2008 until December 31, 2008, on both The Buzz and the radio program Showbiz Mismo of DZMM, due to controversial rift issues between her and former actress Nadia Montenegro.[1][2]

In April 2008, The Supreme Court (of the Philippines) affirmed a libel conviction and ordered her to pay a fine and damages to couple Anabelle Rama and Eddie Gutierrez instead of serving a jail term previously issued by a lower court.[3]

In 2010, Cristy Fermin returned on TV5 as one of the main hosts of the weekly showbiz talk show Paparazzi. She was joined by Mo Twister and former The Buzz co-host Ruffa Gutierrez. She is also a co-host of Juicy! with original hosts Alex Gonzaga and IC Mendoza.

On November 8, 2010, she returned on radio when her entertainment news program, Cristy Fer Minute, was launched on Radyo5 92.3 News FM. The said program is also simulcast on AksyonTV.

On July 28, 2012, TV5 canceled Paparazzi, while Juicy! was canceled on August 3. Cristy began hosting "Ang Latest" on August 4.
