Finally, Lea Michele, the reel and real-life girlfriend of the late "Glee" actor Cory Monteith spoke in public regarding the death of boyfriend via the social microblogging site Twitter.

We may recall that after the death of Cory on July 13, 2013, Lea kept silent - she didn't graced any interviews or posting tweets or status online airing her side and emotion regarding the controversial death of boyfriend Cory.

But just this July 29, 2013 almost 10 hours ago, Lea posted in her official twitter account her sweet photo with Cory and tweeted the following lines:

"Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart."

Here is the screenshot of her tweet:

Though hard for now, we are all hoping that Lea will be better soon. Once more, our deepest sympathy for Lea and Cory's family. May you rest in peace and paradise in the hands of our Lord Cory.

For the very first time, the hottest Primetime actors merged together in one team and fight against the campus varsity team. 

The actors namely Gerald Anderson, Derek Ramsay, Ejay Falcon, Marco Alcaraz, Luis Alandy, Matt Evans formed their celebrity group and fight the Campus Varsity Team of STI College Global City in the hard court in an event dubbed as "Celebrity Basketball Campus Edition" on the rainy Sunday night of July 28, 2013  in Makati Colliseum.

The event was brought by XFactor Productions Inc. headed by Rocky and Jay Agosto in cooperation with the STI College Global City.

The event is also an event for a cause. Proceeds of the game will be donated to the chosen charity.

The lawyers of GMA Films President Anna Teresa G. Abrogar filed a motion for the cancellation and forfeiture of the P10,000 bail posted by GMA talent Sarah Lahbati with Branch 59 of the Regional Trial Court of Makati last July 25. The motion, which had the conformity of Asst. City Prosecutor Dalig, likewise sought the issuance of a warrant of arrest against the controversial actress.

This after Lahbati once again left the country on board flight PR 102 bound for Los Angeles on July 16, just four days after the approval of her bail, without seeking prior permission from the Court.

The Makati RTC issued an order on May 20 finding probable cause to sustain the filing of a libel case against Lahbati.  The order simultaneously fixed a P10,000 bail for her provisional liberty and issued a warrant of arrest against her. But the warrant of arrest was not served to Lahbati because she left the country for Switzerland soon after the filing of the complaint-affidavit for libel against her. On July 12, Lahbati returned to Manila and immediately posted bail. Four days after, Lahbati again left the country without the Court’s permission.

Under Section 23 of the Rules of Criminal Procedure, “an accused released on bail may be re-arrested without the necessity of a warrant if he attempts to depart from the Philippines without permission of the court where the case is pending.” (

Due to consistent high ratings and public demand, ABS-CBN's afternoon series "Dugong Buhay" starring Kapamilya Gold hunk Ejay Falcon has been extended until September this year.

“The whole cast and crew are so happy about the extension of our show. It only proves that all our efforts and hardwork pay off and that we get to entertain a lot of people,” said Ejay. “I am also glad that our viewers will get to know the new Victor better and that they will be part of his future life battles.”

Since “Dugong Buhay” premiered last April, afternoon viewers instantly got hooked with the TV remake of Carlo J. Caparas’ novel and cinematic production of the hit Kapamilya action-drama series directed by Toto Natividad.

The narrative of “Dugong Buhay” is so striking that Ejay himself is fascinated with its story and his well-known character Victor. “I’m so connected with my role that sometimes I feel that we are one and the same person. But in real life, I am just like Victor who values his family so much.”

Ejay further shared that TV viewers will surely get more hooked with their show as the next episodes will feature intense action-packed encounters among the powerful men of the De Lara family.

“There are still a lot of heavy action and dramatic scenes that our viewers should watch out for. They should witness how extreme fury would consume Victor and what he would do to destroy his own family,” shared Ejay.

Don't miss the heart-pounding scenes in “Dugong Buhay” every afternoon after “My Little Juan” in ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Gold. (
The Optimum Star Claudine Barretto is again on the limelight. It's not because of her showbiz comeback for a new movie or teleserye. Rather of another fight with husband Raymart Santiago.

The actress has filed a Temporary Protection Order against Raymart Santiago on Monday July 29, 2013 in Marikina Regional Trial Court proving the rift with her husband.

Claudine and her attorney didn't give a full detail of why the actress filed a TRO against her husband. But on the statement of the actress and her attorney, they gave a glimpse of what the issue is all about.

Here is the Atty. Ferdinand Topacio's statement courtesy of ABS-CBN News:

"She has been under intense and tremendous emotional stress. Mula pa po noong Sabado nung pinatawag niya po ako. Actually nagdadalawang isip po talaga siya. Ang pag-file po nitong TPO ay hers and only hers.

Kami ay umaasa na ito ay agarang maaprubahan. Ang hinihiling namin dito ay hindi makalapit si Mr. Raymart Santiago sa aking kliyente at sa mga bata, na hindi po magkaroon ng actual physical threat.
Marami po kaming hinihiling doon sapagkat napagkaalaman namin na may mga armas na pag-aari, high-powered firearms si Mr. Santiago at ito po ay kasama sa TPO pati ang pagbibigay ng suporta.

Sana ay bigyan natin ng privacy si Ms. Barretto dahil ito po ay it was a very painful decision for her to make. Talagang namilipit siya ng husto, physically, emotionally, mentally bago niya napagdesisyunan ito."  

Claudine even graced an interview with DZMM, the radio arm of her former home network ABS-CBN. Here is the transcript of her interview:

"Siyempre may pinagdaraanan at hindi okay. But as far as trying my best to be okay for my children, to be strong for my children and for my family.

Ayaw ko talagang magsalita. I am not ready to talk. I don't want to talk. I just want to be protected. I just want my children to be protected. Yun lang masasabi ko."

What do you think is the real reason why the optimum star filed a TRO against her husband?! (

"I Need to Find Myself..." This is perhaps the most remarkable line of Billy Joe Crawford uttered in Philippine TV speaking about his breakup with girlfriend of four years Nikki Gil.

Billy opened up airing his side in the ABS-CBN entertainment program "The Buzz" in their recent July 28, 2013 episode five days after their controversial breakup.

Here is the transcript of Billy's answers to the interview explaining his side on the issue:

“She is a dream come true when it comes to finding the right one. It’s hard to find the right one when you really know that you yourself is not the one,”

“I forgot what makes me happy.” “She has no fault. I’m not a perfect guy. I’ve done some things that I’ve regret, but she supported me. She understood. She was there. But I tend to go home by myself. I’m the one who’s completely lost and I’m searching. I asked her. Give me a chance to find myself.”

“I tend to hurt her. And I don’t really want this interview for sympathy. Whatever happens happens.” “I have to start from scratch. I need to try to find what was making me happy before.”

“It’s so hard to love someone, and to continue on if I don’t love myself, if I’m unhappy. I can’t force her to be the certain person that I wanted her to be and vice versa. It’s so hard because I’m searching because I just don’t know.” “People see me every day. They just don’t see me when I’m home. I love her (Nikki). I still do. But it’s unfair to continue. I became distant.”

“I learned that importante na mahanap mo muna sarili mo. I think kung maligaya ka, mas madaling magpaligaya ng tao. Hindi ko sya napaligaya. Nasaktan ko sya. She’s an amazing person.” “I hope you understand. That’s really all” “For the sake of my life lang. This will be the last time that I will talk about what happened. This is the first and the last that I will talk about our relationship.”

“I just really wanted to say I’m sorry.”

Star Cinema Managing Director Malou Santos was recently awarded for her outstanding communications mastery and brilliance in the 2013 Communication Excellence in Organizations (CEO Excel) Awards given by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Philippines.
As Star Cinema celebrates its 20th anniversary, Santos was recognized and praised by the prestigious award-giving body for her strategic and effective use of communication in the mission of ABS-CBN’s movie arm to share stories of inspiration and hope to all Filipinos.

“Communication is the heart and soul of our work,” said Santos. “Through songs, movies, shows, and radio programs, we are able to tell to the whole world the touching and uplifting stories of every Filipino.”

Under her leadership, Star Cinema became known as the no.1 film studio in the country that brought the Philippine movie industry closer to the hearts of Filipinos through the production of top-caliber films. To date, Star Cinema has produced all the top 10 highest grossing Filipino movies of all time--“Sisterakas,” “It Takes A Man and A Woman,” “The Mistress,” “Praybeyt Benjamin,” and “No Other Woman.”

To support the independent movie industry in the country, Santos also launched and introduced the maindie (mainstream-indie) cinema brand Skylight Films to produce much edgier films like “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang” and “Bromance.”

As ABS-CBN’s Senior Vice President for TV Drama, Santos is also the main person behind the success of Asia’s longest-running and award-winning drama anthology “Maalaala Mo Kaya,” and other world-class primetime dramas such as “Pangako Sa’yo,” “Lobo,” "Magkaribal," "Maging Sino Ka Man," and “Immortal,” which all became a major hit in other countries like Cambodia, Malaysia, and Singapore.

After Daniel Padilla, another member from the Padilla clan of actors is finding his way into the world of show business, and with his stance and manner of speaking that is typical of a “Padilla,” he is starting to show signs of being the next “Bad Boy of Philippine Television.”

Showbiz newcomer RJ Padilla is Robin Padilla’s nephew and Daniel Padilla’s half brother.  He is the son of Rommel Padilla, elder brother of Robin and Bebe Gandanghari. 

Recently, the 24 year-old kapuso actor astounded the audience at a regional show in Batangas City when he unexpectedly took his shirt off in the middle of his production number.  Members of the audience screamed at the sight of RJ’s – take note -- six pack abs!

In an interview after the event, RJ revealed that he did not plan to flaunt his chiselled torso but when he saw how encouraging the audience was, he decided to push his limits further and gave them one hell of a show!

Asked whether it won’t bother him to be branded as the “Justin Beiber of the Philippines” after his “going shirtless” act, he brushed off the idea saying that his half brother, Daniel Padilla, is better suited for the title.

“Masarap yung feeling na maraming nagulat [sa ginawa ko] kasi dati akong payat: nag-umpisa ako na 113 lbs. lang ang timbang ko kaya malaking achievement din na makuha ko yung 135 lbs. na weight ko ngayon,” said RJ.

The young actor started serious workout when he was 20.

“Nag-we-weights ako tapos training, Yaw-Yan (Filipino style of kickboxing) at Muay Thai, so disiplina talaga.  Masarap yung feeling na yung mga paghihirap ko ay [nagkakaroon ng bunga],” he shared.

Despite RJ’s display of confidence and machismo on stage, he admitted that he was actually quite nervous about the act. “Kung napansin [nila] yung jacket ko umaagos ang pawis ko sa kaba. Kasi ‘pag ganun ka rami yung crowd kailangan maiangat ko yung energy nila, kailangan lahat gawin ko para mabuhay sila,” he confessed.

A lucky audience member also went home with RJ’s necklace and a kiss on the cheek, while another one with the actor’s tank top. 

“Basta mapasaya ko ang mga tao, OK sa akin,” declared RJ.

RJ is one of the stars of “With A Smile.” He feels blessed to be given such a big break by GMA Network, which gave him the opportunity to act alongside lead stars Christian Bautista, Mikael Daez and Andrea Torres.  RJ is also one of the final 10 new members (or ‘Bagong Gang’) of the longest running gag show in the Philippines, “Bubble Gang.”

“Napakasarap ng pakiramdam,” shared RJ. “Nagpapasalamat nga ako sa Diyos kasi napaka-laking blessing para sa akin na makasama ko ang mga magagaling na artista katulad nina Mikael Daez, Andrea Torres, Christian Bautista, Direk Louie Ignacio, etc. Thankful ako na napabilang ako sa cast ng ‘With A Smile.’”

Childhood Dream

Being a TV star is RJ’s childhood dream. In fact, when he was still in elementary (primary school), he tried to convince his parents to allow him to enter show business but they didn’t like the idea.

“Ayaw lang talaga ng mga magulang ko lalo na yung erpats (father) ko kasi gusto nila makapagtapos ako sa pag-aaral. Si erpats kasi napagdaanan niya na e, matagal tagal na rin naman siya sa industriya at alam niya na ang takbo sa industriyang ito. Siyempre hindi rin siya nakapagtapos at nandun yung panghihinayang niya kaya gusto niya yung mga anak niya makapagtapos.”

Now that finally he’s found a gateway to the industry, RJ swears to flex his muscles – figuratively – and push his limits as far as acting is concerned.

“Gusto ko talaga comedy pero para sa akin, bilang artista kailangan lahat ay kaya mong gampanan. Gusto kong i-push ang sarili ko sa kung hanggan saan kaya,” he said.


For the interest of girls (and gays), RJ says he is “loveless” at the moment and admits that he is searching for “the one.” He hopes to find a girl – within or outside of showbiz – that is as lovely as his showbiz crush Carla Abellana.

“Grabe, patay na patay ako sa kanya kasi sobrang mahinhin siya tapos yung mukha mala-anghel, tapos yung smile – wow grabe – ang sweet ng smile niya. Masarap maka-eksena yung mga ganun, talagang nanamnamin mo e,” admitted the young actor.
