Actor Aga Muhlach called out Senator Antonio Trillanes III in his recent guesting in ABS-CBN’s Gandang Gabi Vice.
In the segment Tanong Mo Mukha Mo, the senator’s face appeared on screen. At first Muhlach was hesitant to say something, but a few moments later, he urged the politician to help the administration instead of criticizing President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Nakakapagod na, Ano ba gusto mo mangyari, Parang nag eenjoy ka nalang jan, Tumulong ka nalang”.
He also said that Trillanes always makes an issue about whoever the president is even if the latter is just doing his job.
“Kahit sinong presidente nalang umuupo sinisiraan. Ito ginagawa naman ng presidente natin yung ginagawa niya. Tumulong na lang sana.
“Stop, collaborate and Listen.”
Bea Alonzo, who was also a guest during the episode, also asked the same question to the Senator. The pair is currently promoting their movie First Love directed by Paul Soriano.
The video of the segment has now been deleted from ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube Channel.

With several projects being offered to the one and only Bea Alonzo, many of us wonder how is she dealing with the stress and issues in life. It is clearly evident that she is managing it well. She is in her best shape and most radiant self. Her secret?
Inspirations. She said that her work and everything that is happening in her life inspires her. No matter if it is negative or positive, she always puts her best foot forward.
“I’m always inspired whem I’m working with the people I like,” she said.
Talking about her latest collaboration and endorsement with the smartphone giant ASUS, she also said that she is inspired working with them.
“So, now I’m collaborating with ASUS and that inspires me,” Bea added.
When asked if she is inspired by her current relationship with the dashing Gerald Anderson, she briefly answered:
“Well, he inspires me too. That’s a good thing.”
A lot has commended her beautiful shape now, even posting sexy for a magazine. What does she do to achieve these?
A disciplined diet, exercise and she is a proud pescatarian now. She admitted that she gave up pork and beef December of last year and stopped eating chicken two months ago. It is very effective, looking at how she is now.
Gerald Anderson, known to take stardom being half of the kilig loveteam Kimerald, is now busy promoting his upcoming film ‘Can We Still Be Friends?‘.
The much-awaited comeback of his tandem with Arci Muñoz is now ready to relive #TeamLablab by turning it to #TeamRelate.
He took the Philippine showbiz again by storm after admitting his ‘exclusively dating’ status with Bea Alonzo. While they are both enjoying each other’s company, Kim Chiu‘s name will always be attached to Gerald’s after being a real-life couple for almost half of his 11-year showbiz career. It is inevitable to talk about Gerald Anderson without Kim being dragged to the conversation. That’s how big their loveteam was, and will be.
In one of his interviews and promotions for his upcoming film, he was asked how he is dealing with the sudden comeback of Kimerald. He simply said,
“Masaya ako dahil marami rin po kaming fans na naghihintay at naghintay para magsama ulit kami ni Kim. Ito nga, araw-araw na nila kaming mapapanood. So, isa yun sa mga gusto ko rin talagang gawin dahil nga para sa mga fans na simula ng career ko andun sila. 11 years na akong artista at hanggang ngayon andyan pa rin sila. Bilang loveteam, sobrang happy ako na kasama ko siya ulit.”
Since his new film revolves about exes who are trying to be friends again, Gerald answered how did the Kimerald comeback start off. Awkwardness is really evident, according to him.
“Syempre bago pa naman ‘yung Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin, hindi rin kami ‘yung sobrang okay na okay, diba? Hi, hello na lang ‘pag nagkikita kami sa ASAP. So, syempre may awkwardness talaga sa simula.”
But he also shared how he was able to cope up with the awkwardness later on.
“Time. Habang nagte-taping kami, habang mas nakakasama ko siya ng mas matagal, nagiging mas okay.”
What do you think, guys? Can you actually befriend your exes? Why or why not, share us your thoughts!
It is the most colorful time in Baguio, without a doubt. It is the most awaited event of the year in the Summer Capital of the Philippines.
The City of Pines was set ablazed yet again for this year’s Panagbenga Festival. The Grand Float Parade, as always, is the main event of the feast. Filled with floral-themed floats, Session Road was jampacked on Sunday, February 26.
A total of 22 floats battled out for the Best Float. They marched from the DILG Building down to the Athletic Bowl. Last year’s winners, Baguio Country Club and SM City Baguio led the parade as 9 entries competed for Small Float category and 10 for the Big Float category.
Here are the floats that are fan favorites:
Celebrities even added to the glamour that the event is. Bea Alonzo, Enchong Dee, AlDub, and Jericho Rosales joined the celebration and made Baguio screaming. Ms. International 2016, Kylie Versoza is also there.
One of the highlights of this year’s festival was when a group of hunky and handsome Igorots made everyone drool. They paraded with their native bahag, exposing their chiseled body and even their bums.
The internet sensation, the Carrot Man himself, Jeyrick Sigmaton participated in her hometown’s grand festival. He posed with the handsome Igorots. They erased the stigma and the stereotyping for the Igorots, and proved that they are drool-worthy also just like anyone else can be.
Everybody can’t wait until Panagbenga 2018!
The Filipino romantic drama A Second Chance has hit blockbuster status by grossing 400 million at the box office just 10 days after opening in theaters. But beyond its phenomenal success, this One More Chance sequel has also influenced some people to give love a second chance. Take for example netizen Chi De Ville who was in an “unideal” relationship. Chi and her boyfriend decided to give their relationship a break and mutually agreed to be just friends until they saw the movie starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo.
Chi, then said in her post:
For the past few weeks, i can feel that our relationship is falling apart. Sometimes, i feel alone eventhough we’re together. Just yesterday, i had all the intentions of breaking up with him. I asked him to meet me and talk about it. He felt the need to let me go because he can see that i was getting hurt and disappointed by what we have become. The ‘talk’ was somewhat blurry but we both agreed to stay as friends.
We watched #ASecondChance after our conversation. Tinamaan kaming dalawa sa mga scenes and hugot lines. We were both crying as the movie ended. Then, we talked some more. That movie really helped us understand each other’s feelings and sacrifices. I realized that he was getting hurt, too. While i was busy pointing out his shortcomings, i didn’t realize that at some point, may pagkukulang din ako. Bottom line is, we are not perfect. We will struggle, we will have fights, we will make decisions and we will surpass emotional battles. I know we can, just as long as we are together. I love him and that will never change.
If you guys are going through some tough times with your partners, try to watch the movie. It will give you a whole new perspective.
After watching the movie, Chi and her boyfriend gave their relationship a second chance. On a final note, she also recommends that couples who are going through challenges to watch the movie so they will see their relationship in a whole new perspective.

Practically every Pinoy has seen the hit romantic movie One More Chance. The unforgettable love story of Popoy, played by John Lloyd Cruz, and Basha, portrayed by Bea Alonzo, was a box office hit in 2007 under the direction of award-winning director Cathy Garcia-Molina and released under Star Cinema.
If you still can’t get enough of the movie which started the famous ‘hugot’ lines in Philippine cinema, ABS-CBN Publishing has released a novel adaptation written by Juan Miguel Sevilla, based on the movie’s screenplay by Vanessa Valdez and Carmi Raymundo.
One More Chance is a story of two sweethearts who, like all other lovers, hope to share their lives together forever. But Basha grew tired of Popoy controlling her life, and broke up with him.
The book, according to ABS-CBN news, is divided into chapters, which features the hugot lines made popular by the film.
Let’s look back at the hugot lines that left a mark on every One More Chance fanatic.
“Alam mo ba ‘yung three month rule, ha?! Lahat ng nagmahal at nasaktan alam ‘yun! Kailangan mo muna maghintay ng three months bago ka magka-boyfriend ulit! Ba’t ba kating-kati kang palitan ako?! May dalawang linggo pa ‘ko bash!”
“Well it’s an exciting time Bash, but at the end of the day, even though things have changed, some things remained the same, di ba? Kaya dapat wag mo kakalimutan ang lumang ikaw.”
“Minsan, it’s better for two people to break up.. So they can grow up. It takes grown ups to make relationships work.”
“Baka kaya tayo iniiwan ng mga taong mahal natin, kase baka merong bagong darating na mas OK, na mas mamahalin tayo, yung taong hindi tayo sasaktan at paaasahin, yung nag-iisang taong magtatama ng mali sa buhay natin, nang lahat ng mali sa buhay mo.”
“Ang totoo hanggang ngayon umaasa pa rin ako na sabihin mong ako pa rin. Ako na lang. Ako na lang ulit.”
“She loved me at my worst, you had me at my best. At binalewala mo lang lahat yon. And chose to break my heart.”
“Lecheng shampoo yan hindi pa ko tinuluyan! TAKE ME LOOOOORD!!”
The book will be released next week in all bookstores nationwide.
