JaDine sightings everywhere

Regular sighting of Nadine Lustre and James Reid in various venues partying with friends, enjoying the beach, and even while on a shopping spree makes people think they are not the busy celebrities like they used to be.

After their previous soap Till I Met You, less popular than their phenomenal hit On the Wings of Love, nothing is heard of them.

Though reports say they will soon face the cameras for their next project, nothing concrete is being talked about nor posted on the social media. On the TV front, it seems that ABS-CBN has a number of soaps in the can for the rest of 2017 that even the likes of Kathniel and LizQuen have to wait.

Many of JaDine fans and supporters are asking us for the latest update of whatever the love team has in store for 2017 but they are getting nothin.

JaDine is among the biggest “moneymakers” of 2016 and not seeing them (except for their individual product endorsements) is not a pretty good sign. Agree?


Fans of Kris Aquino have now reason to be happy as their long wait is almost over.

Kris, who perfectly makes herself her best PR, just revealed that she will very soon go back to her former “network” (remember the tag line “where I originally belong,” she used to her social media posts?).

Finally, it can now be told that her travel-themed special called Trip Ni Kris will be airing on GMA 7 after Kapuso Mo Jessica on March 26.

The two-hour special, according to our sources, will showcase places and provinces, and present food, people, scenery, and other features that make a place worth visiting. If that sounds very familiar, that’s because we have seen a lot of similar concepts on TV before (and even now), though our same sources state, “siyempre iba pag si Kris ang maglalagay ng sarili niyang touch.”

Well, we would like to welcome this development as something exciting again. This is a very good test case for the multi-media experts and researchers. Kris has been long doubted to be just the perfect example of a multi-media superstar due to “hype or the power that goes with her name and/or the image that has been given to her by ABS-CBN.”

She must prove us wrong this time, especially now that her famous “love, love, love words” get back home at the Kapuso network.


However, Kris former BFF, Aiai de las Alas just inked a one-picture deal with Cineko Productions, the outfit behind the successful Vhong Navaro starrer Mang Kepweng Returns.

We were invited to her contract signing with representatives from the new film outfit that has only Aiai on their mind when Ricky Lee’s script was handed over to them.

“Siya lang or hindi na namin gagawin ang project at all,” producer Ladyliyne de Guzman said.

The working title of the movie, which will soon start filming is Bes with Benefits, from the script of our dear kababayan and friend, the award-winning Ricky Lee, who is to be joined by two young writers, products of his scriptwriting workshop.

“Sa mga hindi nakakalaam, trivia lang po, though this will be my first movie na isang Ricky Lee ang magsusulat, siya din po ang writer ng kauna-unahan kong stage act o concert na Aiai Who Have Nothing. Exciting di ba? Plus, may Joel Lamangan pa as director,” remarked the comedy concert-queen, or the acknowledged comedy queen of showbiz.

“I have done so many projects with Aiai na din pero sa TV lang. First time lang sa movies at excited din siyempre ako. Pareho kaming luka-luka, kaya’t asahan na ninyo ang kakaibang mga kaluka-lukahan sa Bes with Benefits,” reacted Lamangan.

Unlike Kris, Aiai is busier on both TV and in the movies. She in fact has a project under Star Cinema, where Kris used to lord but seems not interested in her anymore. She also has a toprating show on GMA 7 and has a Mother’s Day movie offering courtesy of Regal Films.

“Nagkataon lang po. Part pa rin ng magandang blessing sa atin dahil nagpapakabuti tayong tao. Basta po ako happy sa pag-welcome sa mga bagong producers gaya ng Cineko dahil ibig sabihin, nagtitiwala sila sa industriya at mapapasaya nila ang mga workers dito at patrons nito, Happy lang,” Aiai concluded.
