People …are talking about Piolo Pascual

…are talking about

Piolo Pascual

They say only visionaries and those who continuously reinvent themselves last in the business. And we guess it’s true especially in the case of Piolo, who has been having a great time on the other side of the camera. Most of the films he has produced made great impressions and even did well at the box office. Perhaps that’s the reason why he’s planning to make more films in 2018 aside from the fact that he also wanted to provide employment and give his colleagues the opportunity to be on the spotlight.

ABS-CBN Christmas Special

Two Christmas specials aired on Sunday. Each program featured some if not all of the biggest talents each station has to offer. And based on AGB Nielsen ratings data, only one show got the audience glued to their TV sets and that’s the one that dominated even the online world. The star-studded ABS-CBN Christmas Special got an AGB rating of 4.5 percent or 1.3 percent higher than what Paskong Kapuso got when it aired on the same night.

Maine Mendoza

Her absence seems to be getting controversial and it says a lot about her being a staple face on TV. Every single star has a say on her “sudden disappearance” from the noontime show where people see her every day. Even fans have peculiar speculation on why she had to take a break. Don’t they think she’s just a normal person who gets tired at some point and who also needs a vacation? Maine is bound to return on TV in January, so AlDub fans should stop worrying now.


...are not talking about

Kris Aquino

As if she wasn’t aware that she did the photo shoot for it, she was still “shocked” when a fashion and lifestyle magazine put her on the cover and named her one of their “People of the Year.” She was cited for living up to her moniker “Queen of All Media” even if she doesn’t have any TV show and her online talk show is not making any impact. She was also praised for being cast in Crazy Rich Asian, where she just plays a very minor and brief role. The point is, there are other celebrities, whose relevance is not that questionable, deserve that spot.

Sue Ramirez

A netizen claimed that her recent encounter with the Kapamilya actress was not something that she would really want to cherish. At a parking lot, Sue flashed her middle finger thinking that the latter occupied the parking space where she’s supposed to park her car. The netizen immediately took to Facebook to chronicle her experience but deleted it later on after the actress expressed her “sincere apology,” a.k.a. damage control. Well, it’s true that we really don’t know celebrities and it’s not practical to believe the sweet image they portray onscreen.

Baron Geisler

He said in a recent interview that he wants to clean up his act, something we’ve already heard so many times over. Hence, people would no longer be surprised if he’d get himself into another trouble or make another headline for getting arrested because of his terrible behavior. But it’s nice to know that after a series of controversial moments, the character actor is thinking of returning to rehab. Then again, this would only be a good news among the people he has had terrible encounter with if he’d stop talking and really do it.
