Kita Kita

A big movie star could drive a film’s box office performance, but not in this film. The rom-com starring the unlikely pair of Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy Marquez is the hottest thing in the local cinema this month based on rave reviews not from paid movie critics but from the moviegoers who have already seen the film. Piolo Pascual, the producer of Kita Kita, is stoked for the positive reviews the film is getting. It reinforces his belief that innovative films that follow a decent plot can win the hearts of film enthusiasts. The film has raked in more than P90 million on its first week.

Sarah Geronimo

The pop star was lauded for her professionalism, and quick thinking, after she continued with her production number following an onstage slip while performing live in ASAP last Sunday. Singing and dancing on high heels, the birthday girl accidentally fell out of balance in the middle of her performance. Sarah G just got up and continued with her fierce number as if nothing happened. What would you do if you were in here shoes?


It’s that time of the year again where indie films enthusiasts feast over the numbers of fresh productions that give life to local cinema. Every year, emerging filmmakers and their unconventional stories rule Cinemalaya giving audiences alternative options when it comes to big screen entertainment. And with MMFF under fire for being the worst film festival in the country, Cinemalaya starts to position itself as the most important film event in the land.  

People...are not talking about

Nadine Lustre

We heard that a big brand has just cut its ties with this year’s FHM’s sexiest woman. Reason being, the rumor circulating that she’s “living in” with her beau James Reid didn’t sit well with big bosses of the “big brand.” They prefer someone who has a wholesome image and apparently, Nadine doesn’t fit the bill anymore. People notice that the other half of JaDine is confronted by bad publicity of late. Is it because popularity has gone into her head already? Or she has too many detractors who want to pin her down? 

Michael Pangilinan

He felt relieved that he’s no longer part of Maynila Sa Mga Kuko Ng Liwanag The Musical. And his reasons are very strange. He lives in Quezon City and the rehearsals are in Makati, his manager didn’t want said he would be late during rehearsal, which might infuriate the director. Although they consider it as a big career move for Michael, they thought that backing out from the project is more professional. Perhaps, that kind of mindset tells us why Michael remains minuscule star even up to day. 

Jessy Mendiola  

She’s no longer part of Banana Sundae and there are so many speculations as to why she’s out of the show. Just like some of the goodlooking stars out there, Jessy has been at the center of bad rumors, which directly hurt her career. And these rumors have something to do with her attitude and her being unprofessional. Maybe there’s truth in this rumors. Well, you’re guess is just as good as ours.
