Along the post, she expressed her gratitude to her brother who remained a constant male figure in her son’s life and remarked how they are like any other normal family who experiences rift with each other but still come to the other’s rescue if needed.
3. De Rossi Sisters
When Assunta de Rossi married Congressman Jules Ledesma in a civil wedding back in November 2002, no family member of hers attended the ceremony. Admittedly, she and Alessandra de Rossi had fissure in their relationship, giving the other a silent treatment.
However, it all came to pass when Assunta’s family finally attended her wedding with Jules, this time in a church ceremony in March 2004. Alessandra was the maid of honor.
4. Mother and Daughter, Cecilia and Heart
It was well-known how Heart Evangelista’s parents, especially her mother Cecilia Ongpauco, were against her wishes to marry Senator Chiz Escudero. They did not attend her wedding back in February 2015 in Balesin.

5. Mother and Sons

6. Gal Pals

One of the biggest controversies before was the sudden break-up of sweethearts Dingdong Dantes and Karylle, when the former became entangled with his on-screen partner Marian Rivera.

Truly, time heals all wounds.
8. Barretto family feud
Sisters Gretchen and Claudine Barretto have been estranged for years due to a bitter family feud. Earlier this month, the two met for dinner, fueling speculation that they have managed to finally patch their relationship up.

Veteran television host Boy Abunda has never walked out of an interview before, but he admitted that there were some instances that he nearly did it.
On the October 29 episode of ‘Tonight With Boy Abunda,’ he named his three most difficult interviews in the span of his career.
Boy has interviewed comedian and TV host Vhong Navarro last 2014, after he got beaten up by the camp of Cedric Lee.
“Remember when Vhong was in the hospital and he had his lawyers? It was not comfortable kasi si Vhong pasa-pasa.
“I also felt for Vhong.”
He named KC Concepcion’s controversial ‘The Buzz interview’ next, where she revealed the details of her break-up with actor Piolo Pascual.
“Dumating kami ni KC dito, halos sabay, 8 o’clock in the evening. Alas dos nangyari ‘yung interview dahil she couldn’t make up her mind whether she wanted to do the interview or not. That’s a difficult interview.”
The last interview he mentioned was his one-on-one with Claudine Barretto after Rico Yan’s death, the actress’ former on-screen partner and ex-boyfriend.
“”Another difficult interview was with Claudine Barretto. Hindi ko makakalimutan. This is a time when pumanaw ang kaibigan Rico Yan. It was a difficult interview. Pag dating namin dito, hindi namin alam kung eere.”
Maybe most of us at some point aspired to lose weight or at least be more fit.
To inspire ourselves to stand up and aim for a healthier life, here are some celebrities who did it, and maybe, they can inspire us as well.

Last April, Claudine Barretto started posting photos on her Instagram account showcasing her slimmer body. Netizens didn’t miss the transformation as they commented about her visible weight loss.

Mistresses have always been one of the popular themes in novels, TV and movies. Why are they always a popular?
Probably because there are a lot of them out there. Some are discreet, others are not. While there are a lot of “what-to-dos” for wives out there, there are not so many “guidelines” for these mistresses. But we have found a list that’s remarkable.
After more than a decade after it was published, Etiquette for Mistresses (And what wives can learn from them) by Julie Yap-Daza is going to be made into a movie which will feature Kris Aquino and Claudine Barretto.
First published in 1992, Etiquette for Mistresses, due to its success now has a sequel, “Mistresses Play, Men Stray, the Wives Stay”. But the book isn’t just a guideline for mistresses, it is also a sarcastic checklist of how mistresses are supposed to act, and also includes how wives can learn from these. We just tweaked it a little and made it a do’s and don’ts guideline.
Here’s a list of what a mistress should and should not do.
1. DO know your place! (Mistress is not Mrs. Know your place).
2. DON’T think he means that he loves you more than his wife. (Even if he tells you he loves you more than his wife, don’t let that go to your head.)
3. DO be ready to give up ALL holidays for his wife. (Mistresses should be ready to give up Valentine’s Day, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Holy Week and his birthday.)
4. DO become his secretary’s friend. (Be friend his secretary but avoid all contact with his driver.)
5. DON’T patronize his wife’s “suki”. (As tempting as it seems, don’t patronize the wife’s beauty parlor, jewelry shop, dress shop, or father confessor)
6. DON’T CALL HIM, WAIT FOR HIM TO CALL.
7. DON’T ever be seen in public with him. (To be seen with him in public once is risky. The second time could be fatal to one of you. The third time is The END for both of you)
8. DON’T believe nor say anything bad about his wife. (Never believe, and never say anything unfriendly about his wife, not even after he recites a litany of her faults).
9. DON’T be dependent on him. (Mistresses are kept by rich men. But a mistress who is a woman of substance and independent means is better. [Translation: Don’t ask him for money.])
10. DO be discreet. (Make sure he is not the type to talk in his sleep. There is no fool like a fool in love.)
11. DON’T ever travel together.
12. DON’T take it personal when he cancels a date. (When he breaks a date, charge it to fate, not his fecklessness)
13. DO also have a network of spies. (Wives have their own networks of spies and amigas. It is helpful for the mistress to have her own. A chaperone is not a good idea, however. (Chaperones are passe. Besides, they talk.)
14. DON’T complain! (Mistresses don’t complain). They shouldn’t. It’s the wives, according to their husbands, who are always complaining.
15. DO try harder. Being No.2, the mistress tries harder. At the end of the day (night), she goes home without him. Or he goes home without her with a higher value that when they met yesterday.
16. DO send him home as soon as it becomes apparent that he’s overstaying. What do men do after sex? According to conventional wisdom 10% smoke, 20% fall asleep, and 70% go home to the wife.
17. DO try to be linked to another man. (It is practical for a mistress to be linked to another man, preferably her lover’s friend)
In the age of the liberated woman, who needs a chaperone? Ah, maybe not, but she needs a beard.
18. DO make plans to accidentally bump into him. (If he is a public man and you’re thinking of staging an accident of running into him, think: How many accidents can I pull off in one month?) It’s a woman’s nature to want to be loved and be seen as being loved.
19. DON’T make unnecessary enemies of his children. If you listen to mistresses and their stories, the world is full of love and short on loving.
21. DON’T use tears as a weapon. He’s probably had enough of that from the Mrs. Wives nag. Wives cry. If only for that reason, a mistress doesn’t use tears to get what she wants.
22. DO resist the urge to be found out.
23. DO perish all thought that someday you’ll be No. 1. (Well, you can be if you finally find your own man).
24. DON’T EVER suprise him! (Married men who keep mistresses don’t like surprises, as a rule).
25. DO make yourself busy by building a career. A man with a mistress leads a double life, his mistress only half life. Cheer up! A career will make you whole. Life in the modern world has put women on an equal footing with men. There is nothing a man can do that a woman cannot.
27. DO disappear. (When in doubt, disappear)
28. DO leave him! (When all else fails, leave him) Some mistresses make it; more do not.
Now we don’t mean to offend all the mistresses out there. There is a reason why some women settle to become mistresses. And there is also a reason why men marry whom they choose to marry.
And as Bo Sanchez says, “You don’t get what you deserve, you get what you settle for.” Settle for the best. Settle to be the only one. And as for Kris and Claudine’s upcoming movie, we hope it earns a spot on the box office. After all, it isn’t just a movie on “Etiquette for Mistresses”, but we know wives can also learn from them.

Local or international artists, no one escapes occupational hazards such as falling off stage.
When stars fall onstage, it’s embarrassing and and most of the time, painful. Like on the stage, off the stage, into the audience; these musicians/artists, hosts and performers give new meaning to falling from the top. Whether it was the result of a complicated dance move, debris on the stage, or a result of old age, there are myriad artists who have tumbled on and off the stage while performing.
