Coco Martin holds no grudge against GMA Network for discrediting him in his MMFF 2018 entry promo

Coco Martin holds no grudge against GMA Network for discrediting him in his MMFF 2018 entry promo

  • Lolit Solis said that she doesn’t think GMA Network is petty enough to ban Coco Martin’s name in Kapuso shows.
  • Martin replied that he has high regard toward the network and he holding a grudge against the network is not in his capacity.

In a recent Instagram post by entertainment personality Lolit Solis, defended GMA Network, expressing her thoughts about the assumptions of Netizens that Coco Martin is banned from being mentioned in any Kapuso shows.

She said that she doesn’t believe that the network is that petty to actually prohibit the stars from saying the actor’s name and maybe Maine Mendoza just had a “moment” and forgot to mention her other co-star in the movie Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles.

“Imposible na hindi pagbigyan ng GMA si Coco dahil alam din ng lahat na sa 7 nag-umpisa ang career ni Coco Martin. Huwag na natin bigyan malisya na hindi siya nabanggit, baka may big pakulo para sa announcement ng naturang movie, malay natin, wait lang tayo.”

Hindi naman ako maniniwala sa balitang 'ban' si Coco Martin sa GMA. Hindi naman siguro ganun ka-petty na ang co star ni Bossing Vic Sotto sa filmfest movie niya hindi puwedeng banggitin ang pangalan. Baka naman may moment lang si Maine Mendoza kaya nalimutan banggitin ang pangalan ni Coco nang mag-promote siya. Imposible na hindi pagbigyan ng GMA si Coco dahil alam din ng lahat na sa 7 nag-umpisa ang career ni Coco Martin. Huwag na natin bigyan malisya na hindi siya nabanggit, baka may big pakulo para sa announcement ng naturang movie, malay natin, wait lang tayo. Sa bait ni Coco, sure ako mag-melt ang puso ng mga executives ng GMA, sila Lilybeth, Redgie, at Gigi. Naku, excited iyan na personal makita si Coco Martin sa studio ng 7 noh, bet ko iyan. #lolitkulit #instatalk #71naako @mr.cocomartin

A post shared by LolitSolisOfficial (@akosilolitsolis) on

Martin then replied to the post, saying that he understood and he has high respect toward  GMA Network especially that it’s the Network that first opened its doors for him.

“Napakabait po nila sakin kaya wla pong problema sakin yon at kahit kaylan hindi ako mag tatampo sa kanila.”

He added that he’s also grateful for having the chance to work with Vic Sotto and Maine Mendoza.

Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles will be out on December 25 as an entry for the Metro Manila Film Festival.

AlDub fan devotes final days in support of her two idols

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 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.

Many criticized actress Maria Isabel Lopez back during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. She was accused of being a ‘scene-stealer’ as she got more attention in the red carpet compared to the film director Brillante Mendoza and lead star Jaclyn Jose, because of her bright colored and eye-grabbing emerald green gown. She, later on, apologized to the director and her co-stars, explaining that she did not intend to steal the spotlight away from them.

The most controversial of all is probably the issue of Maine Mendoza‘s Tamang Panahon gown that resulted in a lawsuit filed by stylist Liz Uy to fashion blogger Michael Sy Lim.

The issue started when people pointed out that Maine’s gown was the same gown as Kim Chiu wore at the 2013 Francis Libiran Metrowear Icon Fashion Show. In an official statement by the designer Francis Libiran, he stated that “We are so glad, honored, and grateful that Maine Mendoza and her official stylists, Stylized Studio, Inc., chose a beautiful Francis Libiran dress from our Spring/Summer 2015. Maine Mendoza’s gown at Eat Bulaga’s Tamang Panahon concert for a cause was bought and paid for by Eat Bulaga Production.”

In Liz Uy’s 24-page complaint submitted to the court, she cited Lim’s tweets and blog post regarding his entries at the website Fashion Police, criticizing her for making the artist wear a “recycled” gown and a “hand-me-down” Gucci jacket at one of Maine’s magazine photoshoots.

Liz Uy filed cases of online libel and grave slander against Michael Sy Lim.
