In an interview with Pilipino Star Ngayon, Congressman Yul Servo disclosed that he and long-time friend Piolo Pascual once joked and dreamed for the veteran and award-winning actor to become a mayor.
“Actually, nung ‘di pa ako konsehal, minsan nangangarap (kami) na joke-joke lang na tatakbo siyang mayor pero hindi naman niya tinuloy kasi ayaw din niyang pasukin,” said Servo when inquired if he ever did encourage his friend to enter the world of politics.
The member of the Philippine House of Representatives from Manila’s 3rd District is also now indifferent to others giving malicious comments towards his friendship with Pascual. Asked if he ever felt bad when the two of them are being linked together, he answered “Ako naman kabisado ko naman siya kung paano niya dalhin dahil matagal ko siyang nakasama eh. Alam ko kung paano niya i-handle ang kanyang buhay.”
What is important for him is that they remained friends and akin to family, especially as Pascual is godfather to four of his five children.
Even Pascual’s last birthday was spent giving charity to our countrymen and Servo’s own constituents were among those included to receive from the actor.
“1500 na goods, saka 1500 na ham… may mga de lata, bigas, pa-birthday niya sa mga ka-distrito ko,” said the actor-turned-politician. “Kaya tuwang-tuwa ‘yung mga ‘yun. Siya mismo ang nag-aano (namamahagi),” Servo added.
The two of them lead busy lives and Servo admitted that they do not keep in touch like they used to before, but was thankful for his friend’s kind gesture.
“Hindi na kami masyadong nakakapag-usap eh. Ano niya na yun, kindness na niya na makapag-share siya ng blessings. Alam naman natin yung kaibigan natin, magaling ang pag-handle niya ng buhay niya, yung mga kita niya. Kaya nakakatuwa. Hindi lang naman sa Manila, sa buong Pilipinas.”
It’s not new that Piolo’s mother, Amy Pascual, is eager for her youngest son to settle down, but the ultimate heartthrob has proven time and time again that he is still blurry on the topic.
Back in his 30’s, when he stated that he is ready to settle down, he later changed his mind when he promised Iñigo, his only child with his former non-showbiz partner, to focus on parenting now.
Piolo Pascual has good intentions for the movie industry to make good movies through jis outfit, Spring Films. Even though the producer has moved away from the limelight, he still managed to maintain his popularity.
But even with all his success, Mommy Amy Pascual is still worried that her son is not getting any younger and that he should find a woman to settle down with.
Excited, Mommy Amy’s fortune teller said that there is a prophesy this 2019 that her son will finally meet a woman to settle down with.
“Sana nga matupad na ngayong taon. Been waiting for this a long time,” stated the doting mom.
Now at the age of 42, Piolo is still not linked to anyone. What are your thoughts? Leave your comments on the comment box down below, and please leave a like and share.
Piolo Pascual has always been someone who kept his cool toward bashers, but it looked like the actor has had enough this time as he aired his piece against a Netizen who accused him and his son, Inigo as “gays’.
It started when Piolo posted a commemorative photo of him and his son, after they have finished their first “resolution run” in Jakarta, Indonesia. His fans immediately showed support by congratulating them.
But not everyone was fond of the father and son duo as a Netizen posted a comment that irked the actor.
“Mag-amang bakla haha”, the comment read. Piolo immediately replied, challenging the basher to a fistfight.
The Netizen continued to annoy him saying, “San lugar sige punta ako.”
They continued to exchanged comments, the basher repeatedly asked about the location where he can proceed and meet the actor.
The Netizen then suggested that they should do it in front of ABS-CBN in hopes of becoming famous before saying that he’s in Timog.
“San sa timog,” Piolo replied again.
“Ala ito Malabo nato ako na nga pupunta eh,” the Netizen commented.
Piolo’s reply read, “Public mo account mo at intayin moko jan.”
He also took a screenshot of the Netizen’s profile and shared it on his Instagram stories.
The internet went crazy when ABS-CBN‘s 2018 Christmas station ID “Family is Love” on Sunday, November 18, during ASAP Natin To.
There has been hundreds of stars seen in the video, which included, Vice Ganda, Coco Martin, Sarah Geronimo, Gary Valenciano, Piolo Pascual, and Regine Velasquez. Loveteams KathNiel, LizQuen, JaDine, JoshLia, and MayWard were also present in the video.
But as it seemed like every Kapamilya star has participated in the Station ID, there are still notable stars who were not sighted in the video.
Janno openly expressed his disappointment on Instagram. In his now-deleted post, he told everyone not to look for him at the Station ID because he was not even given the chance to participate.
“Throwback to Sept. 12 this year when I signed with @starmusic.ph. Naalala ko lang. Sila yata di ako naalala e.”
He also replied to one comment saying that maybe it’s because he’s not signed on a network contract, but as far as he knows, as long as you’re a recording artist, you’ll be included on the station ID.
When another netizen suggested for him to return to GMA-7, however, he told that the Kapuso network isn’t giving him any projects.
The Megastar was also not included in the Station ID. She is currently filming for her movie with Kathryn Bernardo and Richard Gomez, directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.
Julia, who is filming for Doctors to the Barrio alongside Kean Cipriano, was also not sighted in the music video.
The Exes Baggage star was also absent.
Alessandra De Rossi
Alessandra was also not in the station ID. Her movie ‘Through Night and Day‘ is currently showing in cinemas.
DonKiss fans fans have noticed the absence of the loveteam’s other half Kisses.
Judy Ann Santos
Like the artists listed above, Judy Ann did not participate in this year’s ABS-CBN Station ID.

Regine Velasquez has dubbed ABS-CBN Network as the “number one station” in the country.
In her media conference at the Dolphy Theater, she clarified the real reason why she signed with the Kapamilya network. She said that it’s not because of how much was offered to her, but because of the opportunities to work with talented artists.
“No… you know, at my age and at the stage of my career, we all know, you know, alam nilang lahat ng mga reporters dito na mga kaibigan ko na, hindi naman ako ilusyunadang tao. Alam ko naman kung ano yung lugar ko sa industry.
“Sobra akong touched na touched sa welcome na ibinigay sa akin ng ABS-CBN kasi hindi ko akalain na ganun ako kaimportante, hindi po ako mailusyunadong tao.
“But the reason why I’m here is because hindi ko alam kung hanggang kailan ko pa kayang kumanta, and I want to work with their talented singers.”
She then proceeded to acknowledge ABS-CBN as the number one station.
“Yun talaga yun, na bago man lang matapos yung career ko, masabi kong nakatrabaho ko din ang number one station.”
Regine also revealed that she’s looking forward to working with the network’s biggest singers such as Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Piolo Pascual, Morissette Amon, and Sarah Geronimo.
The Asia’s Songbird has recently signed an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN Network and it got people asking the reasons behind her decision.
In her welcome press conference last Wednesday, October 17, Regine Velasques has revealed some of the details why she decided to transfer networks after being a Kapuso for 20 years.
1. There are not enough leading men in GMA.
In a report made by Pep.ph, Cacai Velasquez, who is the singer’s sister and business manager, revealed that there’s actually a scarcity of potential leading men in GMA Network.
“Kunwari yung pag soap, sinong puwedeng i-partner? Yung ganun ba?
“In terms of project, nali-limit din. You’re limited to the characters also kasi yung leading man, medyo kapos.”
2. Regine’s decision was not because of the talent fee but to explore more opportunities.
Cacai also said that it was not about how much the talent fee is anymore, but because Regine wants to work with other artists and have more opportunities.
“Nothing to do with the TF [talent fee] anymore… eto yung decision niya na nothing to do with the TF anymore. It was a factor before but ang talaga sa kanya is to work with other artists, yun talaga.”
GMA-7 also released a statement saying that they respect the singer’s decision to join her husband in ABS-CBN and pursue other opportunities in another network.
“We understand her decision to join her husband and we wish her well as she pursues other opportunities outside GMA Network.”
3. To work with ABS-CBN’s artists.
With Regine’s ABS-CBN transfer, she is now free to work with some of the network’s biggest stars.
When asked who she’s looking forward to having a project with, she named Piolo Pascual, Aga Muhlach, Morisette Amon, Robin Padilla, and one of her best friends Megastar Sharon Cuneta.
4. Her interest on returning to the big screen.
Regine then told reporters about her excitement about exploring projects like opportunities to star in movies and to work with her husband Ogie Alcasid.
“I’m excited kasi ang Star Cinema nandiyan lang, so, siyempre gagawa rin tayo ng pelikula.”
She also showed interest to be partnered with Jericho Rosales, Sam Milby, and Coco Martin.
5. To collaborate with OPM Icons.
Aside from singers who were also from GMA-7 like Janno Gibbs, Lani Misalucha, and Jaya, Regine is also looking forward to collaborating with Kapamilya singers.
She said that she’s looking forward to working with vocalists in ASAP, especially Sarah Geronimo.
“I’m so excited because I get to work with Sarah. Alam niyo naman kung gaano ko kamahal si Sarah. Plus I get to work with other singers in ‘ASAP.'”
6. ABS-CBN has a lot of mediums for artists like Regine to offer
From print (books, magazines) to records (Star Music) to movies (ABS-CBN Films), teleseryes and many more. ABS-CBN also has a lot of produced shows locally and abroad which will widen her reach as an artist.
7. Wants to experience being with #1 TV Station in the Philippines
Regine wanted to work with ABS-CBN and called the network ‘number one.’
“Yun talaga yun, na bago man lang matapos yung career ko, masabi kong nakatrabaho ko din ang number one station.”

Being one of the heartthrobs of this generation, Piolo Pascual proved that he is more than just a handsome face. He has starred in countless of movie and television projects.
He is also the producer of an independent twinbill film under Bicycle Pictures, Manila.
Piolo was the executive producer of the Kimmy Dora trilogy, Kita Kita, and Meet Me in St. Gallen.
As a man of many talents, Piolo is often asked if he’s interested in joining the world of politics since many of his colleagues tend to do so.
When he was asked regarding this at a press conference for one of his endorsements, the actor said that he’s currently busy. “No. Thank you, I’m busy. Pinagdadasal ko na lang sila. Kaya na nila ’yan.”
Even though he has no interest with entering politics as of now, Piolo did admit that he was encouraged to run for mayor and senator before. He joked that he’s fine where he is right now as he doesn’t want to risk the chances of getting shot.
“Oo naman. Senador. Mayor. Salamat. Pero okey lang ako. Saka baka mabaril pa ako, mahirap na,
I have a better platform in showbusiness and I’m just gonna use that if I ever want to help.”
In spite of celebrities being watched 24/7, some of them can still keep things without the public noticing anything. It can be as little as a scar that can be covered by any makeup or as big as a pregnancy that the public would feast upon.
Here are a few celebrities that have children you may not know about in the past:
Phoemela Baranda was 19 and had a busy modeling career when she got pregnant with her daughter, Kim. All her life, Kim thought that Phoemela was her older sister and she only found out about the truth when she was already 11 years old.
Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez
Last 2013, the word got around that Sarah Lahbati was pregnant with her child with Richard Gutierrez. The couple gave no confirmation as they flew to Switzerland. They first showed their son to the public in their reality show ‘It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez’.
Back in 2011, actor Derek Ramsay found out that he has a son named Austin. Austin is his son with estranged wife Mary Christine Jolly.
Marjorie Barretto is the mother of Dani, Julia, Claudia, and Leon. Her eldest is her child with Kier Legaspi. On the other hand, Julia, Claudia at Leon are her children with her second husband, Dennis Padilla.
Aubrey Miles admitted last 2014 that she has a son named Maurie. When asked about the reason on why she kept him as a secret, she answered “Noong time na ‘yun kailangan fresh ka. Mas sisikat ka. Siyempre sa mga endorsements mo gusto nila single ka, hindi ka mom.”
Inigo Pascual was all grown-up when he was introduced to the public by his father, Piolo Pascual. Inigo is currently following his dad’s footsteps as he’s trying his luck in the showbiz.
Last March 16, Liz Uy, a famous celebrity stylist revealed that she has a son named Xavi. In one interview by Preview, she said that “Every time I do anything, I think of Xavi first.”
Ellen Adarna and John Lloyd Cruz
There have been speculations that Ellen Adarna is currently pregnant with her child and the rumored father is the actor John Lloyd Cruz. Although there hasn’t been a confirmation just yet, last June 19, the two were spotted at Chong Hua Hospital in Cebu for an alleged prenatal check-up.
