With a banner story of "Make It Happen,"  MEGA Magazine made possible to unite the top actresses of two rival networks in their 25TH Anniversary edition. Ange Locsin and Marian Rivera are both beautiful and glamorous together in the said magazine cover which also features their real-life stories.

We may recall that it was exactly 10 years ago when Angel Locsin, the former Primetime Queen of GMA-7 left Kapuso network and moved to its rival station, ABS-CBN. Marian Rivera instantly replaced her throne and turned to be the Kapuso's reigning Primetime Queen. And because of that, the two eventually becomes rival. They were always compare and pitted against one another.

But in this month's issue of MEGA magazine, they were good to see together! No more rivalry, no more competition, just a beautiful union!

Alright, let's take a look now on their beautiful MEGA Magazine cover together as well as their individual covers:





Now that MEGA magazine already made posible to bring Angel and Marian together, when can we expect to see them together in one huge movie?! And the question follows - will it be under Star Cinema, GMA Films, or Regal Entertainment?! How about a teleserye starring Angel and Marian?! Sounds exciting right?! Definitely, it will be a huge box-office hit or a sure top-rating TV series! 02/21/2017 (TV Series Craze)

Revenge has never been this wild as Maja Salvador stages her much-awaited comeback on television as Ivy, a woman who will do everything to avenge her parents’ death brought about by a powerful political clan in “Wildflower” beginning this Monday (Feb 13) on ABS-CBN.

Before anger turns her into Ivy, get to know her first as Lily (Xyriel Manabat), a young girl who grew up in a loving family. Her father Dante (Christian Vasquez), who worked as a PAO lawyer, unfortunately received death threats for a case he handled. This prompted him to leave town with his wife Camia (Sunshine Cruz) and their daughter and relocate to Poblacion Ardiente.

The first week in Poblacion Ardiente went well for her family, especially Lily, who easily found a friend in Diego (Jesse James Ongteco).



However, misfortunes continued to haunt their family when Diego’s father, Raul Torillo (Wendell Ramos), lusted over Camia and sexually harassed her. Without hesitation, Dante immediately filed a case against Raul, who happened to be the husband of town mayor Emilia Ardiente Torillo (Aiko Melendez). To protect their family’s reputation, Emilia took matters into her own hands.

In just a snap, Lily’s life suddenly crashed when his father suspiciously died in a heart attack. Lily was forced to leave her mother. Luckily, Lily escaped the wrath of the Ardientes and found herself in the home of Prianka Aguas (Priscilla Meirelles), who adopted her and raised her like her own.

Few years after, Lily finally returns to Poblacion Ardiente as the seductive and powerful Ivy, who vows to seek revenge against the Ardientes. Everything will work out as planned,  until she crosses paths with her long lost friend, Diego Ardiente Torillo (Joseph Marco). 

How will Diego affect Ivy’s plans to avenge her family? Will justice for the death of her parents finally be served? Is there a chance for forgiveness and love in Ivy’s heart?

Also joining the cast are Tirso Cruz III, RK Bagatsing, Vin Abrenica, Malou De Guzman, Ana Abad Santos, Arnold Reyes and Izzy Canillo.

“Wildflower” is directed by Onat Diaz, Raymond Ocampo, Cathy Camarillo under the production unit headed by Ruel Bayani.

We’ve all experienced that guilty—but somewhat delightful—feeling when watching other people suffer bad luck, from harmless public humiliations to outright disasters. Should this sound a warning of humanity’s decline? Not quite, science says. 

In a study published at the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, neuroscience experts Dr. Mina Cikara of Harvard University and Dr. Susan Fiske of Princeton University said our minds are wired to feel schadenfreude, a German loanword that means “pleasure felt when another person experiences misfortune.”






However we don’t feel the same level of joy in each instance of failure. According to the results of an experiment by the National Institute of Radiological Sciences in Japan, how we react depends on how we feel about the victim. The way we view ourselves also determines our feelings of schadenfreude.

Here’s a closer look at what studies tell us about this feeling:

1. A case of self-esteem

The American Psychological Association published a study which revealed that people with low self-esteem are more inclined to feel schadenfreude when someone successful undergoes hardship. The study explained that these people feel threatened by high achievers and often look for chances to affirm themselves.

2. Rivals at each others’ throats

When Dr. Cikara, Dr. Fiske, and cognitive science expert Dr. Matthew Botvinick of Princeton University conducted a study on the behavior of Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees fans, they found out that the opposing team’s defeat resulted in increased activity in the ventral striatum, a part of the brain associated with self-pleasure. The same result occurred when fans talked about their desire to harm supporters of the rival team.

3. Green with envy

Researchers from the National Institute of Radiological Sciences in Japan conducted an experiment where subjects had to imagine themselves as protagonists in a social drama. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scans showed that the pain nodes in the subjects’ brains flared when they imagined encountering characters they envy. The imagined downfall of these characters also resulted in the activation of their brains’ reward centers.

4.  Empathy meets cruelty

An experiment that aimed to measure empathy shows that empathy centers in men and women’s brains lit up when someone they considered “honest” received an electric shock. When somebody considered “dishonest” went through pain, participants had fewer emphatic responses, showed decreased activation in their brains’ pleasure centers, and expressed desire for revenge.

Why we love failure caught on tape

Past personal experiences may confirm what studies tell us about schadenfreude, but they also shed light on why we laugh so hard at mishaps caught on tape. 

Shows like Fail Army take viewers on a roller-coaster ride as they watch hilarious epic fail moments submitted by fans.

This February, the new recruits for Fail Army Season 3 are getting ready to make you roll over in laughter. From little accidents to catastrophes that blow out of proportion, Fail Army compiles the best and most amusing fails from all over the online world.

Catch the brand new season of Fail Army from Mondays to Fridays starting February 6, 9:30PM, first and exclusive on RTL CBS Extreme. 02/09/2017 (TV Series Craze)

February proves to be an extremely exciting month for FOX Philippines as the channel announces the premiere of several hit US television series. Several FOX shows are returning to the channel in February, including The Walking Dead, Billions, and WWE’s wrestling programs, while new shows Legion and 24: Legacy are set to bring more prestige to an already strong lineup. To promote this huge boost in programming, FOX is teaming up with Philippine escape room game Breakout to host an experience called FOXtreme Breakout, which will bring elements of these shows closer to viewers in a unique escape room challenge that will run from February 9 to 12 at Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City.

The new and returning television shows that will be premiering this month on FOX all have day & date telecasts and are based on exciting, adrenaline-pumping content. Legion is based on a Marvel comic book that follows the life of David Haller, who is diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder and soon discovers that he’s a powerful mutant—probably one of the most powerful that’s ever lived. Starring Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast, Downton Abbey), this 10-episode limited series premieres in the US on February 8 and in the Philippines on FOX on February 9 at 8 PM.

Another exciting release on FOX is 24: Legacy, a spin-off of the hit TV show 24. The series stars Corey Hawkins and Miranda Otto and follows the story of Eric Carter, an ex-Army Ranger who is being sought by a terrorist group and tries to stop one of the largest attacks to potentially happen in the US. This heart-stopping 12-episode series will show exclusively on FOX and premiere in the US on February 5, with a Philippine premiere on February 6 at 8 PM.
Meanwhile, the highly successful series The Walking Dead returns to FOX on February 13 in the Philippines at 11:35 AM simultaneously with the US, with an 8:55 PM replay for viewers in the evening. This mid-season premiere continues the explosive Season 7 of the zombie apocalypse-based show. Billions is also returning to FOX for its 13-episode second season, premiering on February 20 at 9:50 PM exclusively on the channel.

FOX is also the Philippines’ Home of Wrestling, with its wide roster of WWE titles such as Raw, SmackDown, and Royal Rumble. On February 14, FOX’s local production Wrestling Gods adds to the channel’s testosterone-fueled wrestling mania when it premieres at 9:50 PM.
Viewers can also experience all these great shows on FOX up close by joining the FOXtreme Breakout challenge at the Ground Floor of Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City from February 9 to 12. The channel teamed up with premier escape room game Breakout to create a series of interconnected rooms that each emulate the look and feel of the shows premiering in February on the channel. Teams of four will have about 20 minutes to finish going through the experience, in which they’ll have to fish a key off a “walker” in The Walking Dead room; take on shooting challenges in the 24: Legacy room; play a tough game of rock-paper-scissors with five big wrestlers in the WWE room; test their sanity while going through a mirror maze in the Legion room; and claim their prizes in the Billions room. FOXtreme Breakout is a fun way for viewers to immerse themselves in FOX’s newest and most-loved shows as well as win prizes. Participants can form teams of four and register online at www.breakout.com.ph to reserve a slot and enjoy the game for free.

Charo Espedido, Director and Head of Content & Marketing at FOX Networks Group Philippines, said, “The addition of new shows like Legion and 24: Legacy along with the return of hit shows like The Walking Dead, Billions, and our favorite WWE programs to FOX make it clear that we are determined to deliver the most exciting, action-packed US entertainment content to our viewers. We’re excited to share these shows and engage with FOX’s viewers at the FOXtreme Breakout game in Uptown Mall this month so that we can whet their appetites for the amazing shows they’ll see on their TV screens soon.” 02/08/2017 (TV Series Craze)
