Proud homeliners

Viewers of the family-oriented talk show Mars Pa More will not miss host Iya Villania who gave birth to her third child on July 18. She only asked for a week off, which means co-host Camille Prats will not be alone delivering the kind of entertainment the program has been known for.  

Beginning today, the two hands-on moms kick off their show’s week-long anniversary celebration with fresh episodes produced from their respective homes.

“I'm happy that it’s been a year and we’re still here despite the pandemic. And it’s already a big move having to move to the main channel. For me, the mere fact that we’re still here surviving another year is already something big for the show,” Iya said of their milestone celebrating their first year on air.
