Gabby happy to be with young co-stars

GABBY Concepcion says he’s thankful to GMA-7 for giving him shows where his leading ladies are much younger than him, like Carla Abellana in “Because of You” and Sunshine Dizon and Ryza Cenon in “Ika-6 na Utos”, both big hits. He’s now paired with Jennylyn Mercado who’s just turning 32 on May 15. He’s 54, so Jen could very well be his daughter, since his own eldest child, KC Concepcion, is now 34 years old.

Jennylyn denies she’s living in with Dennis

JENNYLYN Mercado is happy to be back on primetime TV after the thriller, “The Cure”, which ended in July of last year.

It took almost 8 months before Jen is given a new show, “Love You Two”, which pairs her for the first time with Gabby Concepcion. How does she feel about it?

Ai ai on Ex B: 'Kahit pasaway, talented talaga sila'

“Kahit pasaway sila, di makakailang talented naman talaga ang Ex Battalion,” says Ai Ai. “At dito sa movie naming ‘Sons of Nanay Sabel’ or SONS, pinatunayan din nilang magagaling silang artista. Pasalamat din sila kasi matiyaga sa kanila ang director naming si Dado Lumibao. Kahit minsan, nate-take 10 sila bago magawa nang maayos ang isang eksena, talagang hindi sila sinusukuan.”

Joy sinagot si Karen

Matatandaan na dikit ang mga Belmonte sa dating Pangulong Noynoy Aquino. Kaya marahil ito ang dahilan kung bakit siya inaakusahan na balimbing.

Jericho reveals different marriage set-up with wife Kim

JERICHO Rosales says “Halik” is his most successful show after “Pangako Sa’Yo” which he did 20 years ago. “Napakalakas talaga ng impact nito sa viewers kasi everywhere I go, they call me as Lino, my name in the show,” he says. “But after this, ayoko ng gumawa ng teleserye. To begin with, this is a tough act to follow. Also, I want to challenge myself to do something new kasi nag-iba na rin naman ang panahon ngayon. I’ve been doing soaps on TV for 23 years now, so I don’t wanna do soaps anymore. It doesn’t mean titigil ako sa pag-arte kasi passion ko yan. But I’m now more open to do other projects, lalo na ngayon, uso na ang digital. We don’t know where things would be going, and we should be open to exploring more options, more venues. I’m inspired and excited to do new things and RSB (Ruel S. Bayani) has offered me to do shows with different concepts that I can produce, write or direct. I want to challenge myself to do something new. So, we’ll see.”

Sylvia a rare breed in showbiz

SYLVIA Sanchez wins the Sinag Maynila Filmfest actress award for her crackerjack title role performance in the heavy drama, “Jesusa”, written and directed by Ronald Carballo.
