According to Roxy Liquigan, it took “5 months preparation” to arrange the team-up and there were speculations that the movie will not push through because Alden Richard is exclusively for GMA Network, and there was a possibility that the GMA Artist Center would not allowed him to do the project.

But with the help of Philip Rojas of Asian Artist Agency, headed by Boy Abunda, the project was made possible.

When both artists were asked about their reactions knowing that they would be working together, Kathryn said, “Kung tatanungin niyo ako kung kinakabahan ako, super!” and Alden’s reaction was, “Siyempre, first-time kong makakatrabaho si Kath. We’ve been seeing each other for a long time.”

Kathryn and Alden are known for having strong and loyal fans in their respective love teams, Kathryn with Daniel Padilla for “KathNiel, and Alden with Maine Mendoza for “Aldub.”

But having this new team-up, both their fans positively accepted the upcoming “KathDen” movie.

To show their love and support for both artist they posted their reaction on Twitter.

  • Alden Richards shared that he would love to be a part of the upcoming Filipino adaptation of Descendants of the Sun.
  • He also shared updates about his love life and newest business venture.

At his thanksgiving party held on January 6, Alden Richards shared his plans for the year 2019.

He said that he would still be appearing in his regular shows like Eat Bulaga and Sunday Pinasaya. Then he will get to do a series of concerts in various countries before he starts a new show with the Kapuso network.

When asked about the title, he answered, “Nothing is definite po as of now.”

Fans of his loveteam with Maine Mendoza, AlDub, has been requesting for the tandem to star in the local remake of popular Korean drama Descendants of the Sun.

“I’d really love to do it as I know it’s a hit drama worldwide. I’d also love to work with Maine again. But hindi naman po kami ang magde-decide tungkol diyan kundi ang GMA management. So I hope sana nga, sa amin ni Maine nila ibigay ang project as I’d really love to do it.

“Actually, kahit magkaiba ang career paths namin ngayon ni Maine as we’re on our own, mas close kami ngayon as friends at mas open sa isa’t isa. We are growing individually, on our own. But we really appreciate the fans of our love team who continue to support us and root for us and request na magkasama kami uli sa isang teleserye or movie.”

He also addressed the rumors of him being in a secret relationship, which was said to be the reason why he’s in his “happiest” as of the moment.

“Not true. I’m at my happiest dahil sa dami ng blessings na dumarating sa akin. Actually, ang wish ko nga, sana matagpuan ko na ‘yung the one this 2019. But hindi ko naman hinahanap, basta kung darating siya, ’di okay.”

About his future business plans, his own fast food chain franchise in Biñan, Laguna is currently under construction.

“But sobrang saya ko kasi dati, kumakain lang kami ng family ko sa isang branch noon sa Sta. Rosa at ngayon, may sarili na akong franchise. Our plan is to open it on Easter Sunday.”

At the topic of future leading ladies, Richards answered that he would like to work with Heart Evangelista in the future.

“I find her a good actress and I’ve never worked with her before. I’d really like to experience working with her as my leading lady.”

The history of Concha’s Garden Cafe and Alden Richards

The history of Concha’s Garden Cafe and Alden Richards

  • Alden Richards and Gemma Sembrano shared the history behind their partnership for Concha’s Garden Cafe.
  • Alden also named some of his favorite dishes in the restaurant.

Concha’s Garden Cafe is one of the most talked-about restaurants of this generation, not just because of their partnership with Kapuso actor Alden Richards, but also because of their promise to serve quality food.

According to Gemma Sembrano, the founder of the business, one of the reasons they have tasty meals is because they don’t have any MSG in them. So how did her partnership with Alden start?

“So 2014 nag start ang Concha’s. March 2014. Naging customer namin si Alden, siguro isang buwan, hindi lang siya 5x bumabalik. Halos twice a week bumabalik siya sa Concha’s. Ang first branch namin is sa Silang, Cavite.

“Actually tayo yung lugar kung makikita niyo, hindi siya mukhang restaurant. Mukha lang siyang bilihan ng halaman. Bahay na maliit. Hindi mo akalain.”

Gemma said that Alden has been their regular customer even before he shot to fame through the AlDub tandem. She added that the actor even used to joke about how the food there are all delicious to the point that he asked “Ano ba yung hindi masarap dito?”

Then in 2016, the businesswoman offered him the chance to be their partner.

“So walang dalawang isip, nag okay agad siya. Naglagay kami sa Tagaytay, 2016. So business partner ko na siya sa Tagaytay.

“Then same year, inopen namin ‘tong sa Tomas Morato December 10. So the same year, dalawang restaurant yung binuksan namin.”

So what dish does Alden love the most?

“Yung Shrimp Gambas siguro nakaka dalawang order siya. Laoya. Minsan iba-iba kasi yung araw na ganito, ito lang. Sa susunod na araw iba naman. Like yung Bangus Sardines.”

On the other hand, Alden said that the reason why he agreed to be involved in the restaurant is because of the quality of the food.

“Kasi siyempre I’ve eaten in different kinds of restaurants and since I’ve started eating sa Concha’s, almost twice a week or three times a week, kumakain kami dun.”

He also added Okoy as one of his favorite dishes in the restaurant.

Alden admitted that he doesn’t really know anything about businesses as he didn’t have any background in the industry. But despite the cluelessness, he described the partnership as “the best risk he took so far.”

On a lighter note, when the star was asked if what he will order in case he will take a date to Concha’s, he answered, “Siyempre we’ll start with Okoy. Tapos yung Shrimp Gambas, yun. Kasi ako I really believe good food really gives you good mood eh. Iba yung nagagawa ng pagkain pag busog ka, pag masarap yung food. When you start the day with good food, throughout, maganda good mo.

“So yun din yung isa sa mga kino-consider namin. For our customers to feel, you’ll have good food, and pag-labas nila, happy sila.”

Concha’s Garden Cafe currently has three branches, one in Silang, Tagaytay, and Tomas Morato.

AlDub fan devotes final days in support of her two idols

  • Alden Richards’ fan passed away recently.
  • AlDub fan tries Maine Mendoza’s MAC makeup prior to having cancer; watches Alden Richards’ concert before dying
  • Her sister shared how much the actor has been her happiness up to the last days of her life.

A fan of the Pambansang Bae Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza recently passed away due to cancer.

According to the fan Gail’s sister, the actor’s ‘Adrenaline Rush’ last September 21 was the last concert they ever watched together before she passed away on October 8. It’s a sad thought but her sister said that she was happy while watching Alden perform.

She remembered it all after watching the replay of the concert telecast last October 14.

It’s bittersweet watching #ALDENAdrenalineRushOnSNBO on TV tonight. This was the last concert my sister @LaDivaVida and I saw together before she passed away on October 8 after battling cancer since 2016. She was so happy watching you perform, @aldenrichards02.

She added that they actually received the devastating news that her sister’s cancer got worse on the day of the concert, however, Gail still wanted to enjoy that night.

We actually received the devastating news that her cancer had spread again to her pelvic area on the day of the concert but she was determined to enjoy #ALDENAdrenalineRushOnSNBO.
Our tickets were my gifts to her, my mom and our kasambahay, to support Alden.

Aside from the concert, her sister still got to purchase three of Maine Mendoza’s MAC lipstick.

We didn’t expect that a little more than 2 weeks later, she would have complications from surgery to remove her tumors. Still, before then, she made sure she would get the MAC lippie of @mainedcm for herself, for me and my mom.

She also shared her sisters’ little interactions with Alden and his dad.

During the group photo after Adrenaline Rush, she asked Alden to hold the “Walang Iwanan” banner with her and was able to tell @R_FAULKERSoN how Alden has given joy to her and my family despite her condition.

She then expressed her thankfulness to all the people in fandom they have met.

We are thankful to everyone in this fandom whom we have met in the events we’ve gone to. My sister Gail treasured you all. Supporting DongYan and MaiChard was one of the things which gave her strength to press on through her illness.

I hope those who met her briefly or knew her a bit would remember her smile and courage. Let’s treasure each day we have and show our love to the people who matter most to us. That’s what I learned from Ate Gail. I love you and I miss you, @LaDivaVida. Go sing with the angels now

Maine Mendoza answers netizen regarding “user” issue between her and Alden Richards

  • Maine Mendoza clarified the issue regarding her and Alden Richards’ current relationship.
  • She said that she’s not forcing anyone to support her and people have the freedom to decide on their own.

Maine Mendoza contradicted the rumors that she and love team partner Alden Richards are just using each other so that AlDub fans will still support their individual projects.

AlDub became a phenomenon in 2015 after they started interacting with each other in Eat Bulaga’s ‘Kalye Serye’ segment.

The issue of “using each other” was brought to Maine’s attention after Twitter user @PaaNgMaichard warned Maine’s fans to stop calling Alden a ‘user’ as both of them still have solo projects to promote in the near future.

Mga mulat wag nyong tawaging user si Alden. Tandaan nyo may movie at lipstick pa si Meng.

Kasi kapag si Meng naman ang dumikit kay Alden, keri nyo bang tawagin sya ng mga BN na user?

Babalik din sa inyo yang mga sinasabi nyo eh

Maine took notice of the tweet and replied that she’s not forcing anyone to support her projects.

Sorry may nag tag lang sa akin, pero…. movie and lipstick? Support o hindi, nasa sa inyo naman yun, wala naman pong pilitan kung ayaw.

Alden and Maine continue to be co-hosts in the noontime show, however, both also have their own projects.

Alden is currently starring in GMA 7’s Victor Magtanggol with love interests Janine Gutierrez at Andrea Torres while Maine is part of the cast of the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Jack Em Popoy: The PulisCredibles with Coco Martin and Vic Sotto.

Cory Vidanes disagreed with Vice Ganda over AlDub skit?

Cory Vidanes disagreed with Vice Ganda over AlDub skit?

  • Vice Ganda and Cory Vidanes rumored to have a disagreement over AlDub skit on ‘It’s Showtime’
  • ‘It’s Showtime’ host initiates impromptu skit as Tawag ng Tanghalan finalist Reggie Tortugo has facial similarities with GMA 7’s Alden Richards

Famous comedian and host allegedly have a feud with ABS-CBN’s Chief Operating Officer Cory Vidanes. The rumors started when the host initiates AlDub skit during the It’s Showtime last June 1.

Vice was talking to Tawag ng Tanghalan finalist Reggie Turtugo via split screen when the host mentioned Turtugo’s facial similarities over Eat Bulaga! host and actor Alden Richards. Vice, Vhong Navarro, Anne Curtis, and Amy Perez were at the ABS-CBN studio Tortugo was at the Aliw Theater for the rehearsals of the Tawag ng Tanghalan finale.

The skit started when Vice initiated the skit when he and Turtugo high fived and made a heart using the split screen, which is what the famous Eat Bulaga! loveteam used to do way back.

“Ang lakas maka AlDub nun ha. AlDub, AlDub lang. Yaya Dub ako today. Buhay na buhay ang buong AlDub Nation. So, ayan, mukhang mapapagalitan ako…”  the comedian exclaimed as the others continue laughing.

Vhong accidentally pushed Vice while laughing which caused the other to say “Aray, tinulak ako nito… si Lola Nidora.” while Vhong copies the tone of Lola Nidora’s voice which is originally portrayed by the Kapuso comedian Wally Bayola.

Vice then remembered that the ABS-CBN executive just came back from her out of the country trip.

“Hi, Tita Cory, welcome back. I love you. We missed you, Tita Cory. I will see you tomorrow. I love you po…. principal’s office ako mamaya.”

The statement caused confusion and feud allegations from viewers as Vice continuously hints about getting scolded after his Eat Bulaga! AlDub spiels throughout the episode.
