BB Gandanghari is now officially accepted in showbiz world as her! She totally erased in the minds of many viewers her previous identity as Rustom Padilla. As proofs, she already appeared in different TV series, movie, or TV shows as BB Gandanghari carrying her lady appearance.

BB is now introduced in the newest fantaserye of TV5 "Enchanted Garden" as a lady named Michico. But actually, this is her second teleserye to play as a woman since she already portrayed a lady character before in "Eva Fonda."

In "Eva Fonda," BB played the sidekick of Cristine Reyes. She was the right-hand trustee of Alma Moreno (the original "Eva Fonda") who helped Cristine. The said teleserye was aired in ABS-CBN last 2008.

But prior to "Eva Fonda," BB appeared first in GMA-7's suspense soap, "La Vendetta" in 2007 but we're unsure if she also played as a woman!

Meanwhile in "Enchanted Garden," they say that Rustom Padilla will come alive! Hmmm...we'll see!

Love once more proves that there is no age limit between two persons falling in love! That may be the reason why the Carmina Villaroel-Zaijan Jaranilla love team is clicked among the audience!

Actress-TV host Carmina Villaroel is delighted with the countless positive feedback of TV viewers about her unique ‘love team’ with Kapamilya child wonder Zaijan Jaranilla in their top-rating Primetime Bida teleserye on ABS-CBN, “Lorenzo’s Time.”


Our story itself is very endearing. I personally find it cute because it’s something new. It’s not a typical love team where in the actors are of the same age,” said Carmina who is a self-confessed fan of her leading man’ Zaijan.

“Zaijan is trully a brilliant child star. You cannot come to the set unprepared and say ‘he’s just a kid’ because Zaijan will leave you unnoticed and rule the scene,” said Carmina. “And the kid is very charming. He’s so great. Actually, I’m Zaijan’s fan since his Santino days in ‘May Bukas Pa.”

Aside from her ‘love team’ with Zaijan, Carmina takes pride with the fact that “Lorenzo’s Time” gives the viewers a different kind of entertainment every night. “Compared with other primetime teleseryes, our show has a lighter story that captures the child in every viewer’s heart. It’s not just drama because it also has a unique touch of comedy and it’s great for the whole family because Enzo’s life is full of values,” Carmina shared.

Will Enzo (Zaijan) finally win back the heart of his first love Kat-Kat (Carmina)? Or will he finally realize that he cannot turn back time now because a lot has changed with the lives of the people around him including the only girl that he loves?

Let's catch more exciting episodes of "Lorenzo's Time" weeknights right after "Walang Hanggan" in ABS-CBN's undisputed Primetime Bida!(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
The return of JM De Guzman as Angelito in the Kapamilya Gold block created another milestone in the afternoon teleserye lineup. Just like its first book, "Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto" started in a high note!

Viewers welcomed Angelito on afternoon television as the premiere of “Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto” hit a national TV rating of 13.5% last Monday (July 16), beating its rival program with only 10% based on the combined urbal and rural TV audience measurement data from Kantar Media.


The show also consistently beat its rival show in the succeeding days, making it a very strong contender in the afternoon block. Viewers first followed Angelito’s struggles as a single dad in “Angelito: Batang Ama” which was the number one afternoon drama series in ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold.

As his story continues in this new chapter, Angelito also confronts new challenges in his life as a family man. He recently discovered that Rosalie’s dad Delfin (Al Tantay) has another family after bumping into Rodel (Aldred Gatchalian), Delfin’s son out of wedlock. Angelito has also yet to learn about Jenny (Kaye Abad) bearing his child which will surely rattle his marriage with Rosalie (Charee Pineda). How will Angelito face all these problems?

These are some of the things we need to find out in the succeeding episodes of “Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto” weekdays right after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN.(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

The Star for All Season Gov. Vilma Santos returns in the big screen to treat her million fans via an intense suspense-horror flick! This movie is Ate Vi's 50TH year showbiz anniversary offering. And this is her very first suspense-horror movie in her showbiz history!

Written by Roy Iglesias and directed by the blockbuster director of different suspense-horror flicks ("Feng Shui," "Sukob," and "T2") Direk Chito S. Roño, "The Healing" brings the Star for All Season in a very unique character! And it was such a great opportunity to meet the three of them in persons!

Direk Chito, Writer Roy, and Ate Vi graced the intellectual bloggers in the recently held Bloggers Conference. The three shared their ideas pertaining to the said movie, revealed behind the scene facts during the conceptualization of the film, and answered interesting questions from the internet enthusiasts!

The Movie is Gov. Vi's 50TH Year Anniversary in Showbiz!

Direk Chito Roño Revealed that the Movie is Tailored for Ate Vi!

Movie Writer Roy Iglesias Shared his In-Depth Thoughts about the Movie!

"The Healing" is actually the reunion movie of Ate Vi and Direk Chito. The two brilliant names in showbiz already worked together before in the movies like "Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa?" in 1998 and "Dekada 70" in 2002. The two happily reminisced their good-old days doing such movies in front of the audience.

Ate Vi shared that in this movie, she seems reprising her famous character before as "Darna" since it involves lots of fight scenes. "Narito 'ung binalibag ako, hinagas, hinampas...ang daming aksyon," she added! "At dito din siya natutong magulat," Direk Chito implied!

When asked if they have any other actress to consider in playing the lead role, the director and writer promptly answered, "this movie is really tailored for Ate Vi!" There's no other actress options in their minds!

Kulitan Moments of Ate Vi and Direk Chito!


Gov. Vilma Santos Shared her Own 'Faith Healing' Experience!


The Writer, The Actress, and The Director!

The characters, the sequence, and the settings of the movie were all fictitious! But the three revealed that they all believed in the Filipino beliefs in faith healing. All of them already encountered 'faith healing' experiences in the past!

Ate Vi narrated her very own unusual experience pertaining to 'faith healing.' "1998 nuon nang una akong manalo bilang mayor ng Lipa. Right after ng eleksyon, walang tigil ang LBM ko. Pinuntahan na namin ang mga doktor pero hindi gumaling. Hanggang sa lumapit kami sa faith healer. May binigay siyang kapirasong papel na dinikit ko sa tyan ko ng tatlong araw. After nun, gumaling siya! Nag-adjust talaga ang sistema ko from showbiz to politics," Ate Vi completely shared!

The location was shot in Ate Vi's very own town, Batangas! "Lalayo pa ba kami, eh dito lang sa amin sa Batangas ang daming nangyayaring ganyan, ang daming Faith Healers," Ate Vi implied.

Another interesting thing about the movie is that, it will be shown in two versions! Yup, the movie receives two ratings - R13 and R18. If you have kids under 18 years old who want to watch the film, go for R13. But if want to see the director’s cut, then proceed with R18! This is also first time in the history of Philippine Cinema that a movie receives two ratings and will be shown in two versions! Great!

"The Healing" is Ate Vi and Direk Chito Reunion Movie!


Ate Vi Shared that "The Healing" Brought Her Back as "Darna!"


There was No Dull Moment with "The Healing" Trio!

Joining Ate Vi in the said movie are two of today's young stars namely Kim Chiu and Martin Del Rosario. This is also the first time that the Star for All Season Vilma Santos and the Primetime Princess Kim Chiu worked together in one huge movie project! Martin on the other hand plays as Ate Vi's son in the movie and it is also his first time to work with the actress.

Mark Gil, Allan Paule, Cris Villanueva, Daria Ramirez, Ces Quesada, Ynez Veneracion, Simon Ibarra, Abi Bautista, Joel Torre, Chinggoy Alonso, Mon Confiado, and Carmi Martin, Pokwang, and Ms. Janice De Belen completed the stellar cast of the film!

"The Healing" is now showing this Wednesday (July 25) in the Philippine cinemas nationwide. A successful red carpet premiere already took place just this night!

This is indeed another great movie from Star Cinema and of course from the greatest actress in Philippine movies, the Star for All Season, Ms. Vilma Santos! Can't wait and see! Two thumbs to this film!(www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
