Iya Villania & Drew  Arellano Iya Villania & Drew Arellano

THE relationship as husband and wife between Drew Arellano and Iya Villania is getting stronger. Lalo pa ngayon, they agreed to host for the very first time together a game show for GMA7. Titled “People Vs The Stars”, it is slated for an afternoon slot starting Sunday, 5-6p.m.

The program allows celebrities to play for a chance to win P 200K via a variety of eight tricky questions with respective cash values. If  the stars fail to answer correctly any of the questions, the cash value will be given to the  televiewers by answering the “People Question of the Week”  through text.

Iya is so thrilled and  blessed thinking that the show is in time frame for their  first born, Primo. And mind you, the toddler is already showing interest in the arts.  When he sees mom and  dad playing lovey-dovey,  he smiles  and  starts  making  cute faces.  During the presscon for “People Vs The Stars,” the couple brought along Primo with the nanny and  patiently  waited  until the conference is over  without making tantrums.


IT’s been chronicled that many people  were  given some kind of miracles in their lives after joining the procession for the Black Nazarene in Quiapo. Testimonies  from different people have been heard.  Even celebrities  in the likes of broadcaster Noli de Castro and superstar Coco Martin can testify to this.
According to Coco, since he was a young man, he has accompanied his grandfather to the Black Nazarene procession. From then on, he considers himself  a devotee. All he asked then was to find a job so he could help his family. And he was given more than a job—it is an awesome job. What is happening now with him is more than what he had asked for.
Imagine, from being an indie actor, he is now a superstar both on TV and the big screen. His ‘FPJ’s Ang Probinsiyano’ is rating so high it is now given an extension. His movie with Vice Ganda, ‘Super Parental Guardians’ has  set a new  record as  the biggest grossing movie  ever toppling their own record for ‘The Beauty and the Bestie’ last year.  That’s  a gift  from God.


THE people behind the longest running gag show on TV,  “Bubble Gang” are working doubly hard this year.  Every episode is a challenge for the working group  from to  to bottom.  What they want top maintain is bring gags and jokes that are always fresh. Each of them contributes believing that no man is an island.
But this year, they will try to come up with more wholesome gags. Michael V and the rest of the gang believe that even if they are geared toward more mature audiences considering its late night slot, they have a responsibility to the audience as a whole. 
“Bubble Gang” is seen Friday nights on GMA7.
