After the Kapamilya network revealed that one of Mars Ravelo's famous creation "Darna" will be their upcoming huge movie starring Angel Locsin this coming 2014, another famous creation of the comic master was unveiled. And that is "Dyesebel." 

ABS-CBN finally released a teaser of "Dyesebel" which will be the network's teleserye opening salvo for 2014.

Now the big question goes, who is the Kapamilya actress that will portray this lovable mermaid?! Make your wildest guess!

"Dyesebel" was first aired as a TV series in GMA-7 wayback in 2008 wherein the Kapuso actress Marian Rivera played the said role. Her portrayal following the success of "Marimar" crowned her the title of being Kapuso's Primetime Queen!

After the great announcement that the multi-awarded actress Ms. Angel Locsin is set to reprise the character of the well-love famous Pinay superhero "Darna" in a Star Cinema movie this coming 2014, many now think if how will Angel look like as "Darna."  Will she wear the same costume she wore before in GMA-7's TV series adaptation way back in 2005?! Or ABS-CBN will give her a new costume mightier than before?! 

Thinking of these possibilities,  an online photo of Angel Locsin wearing a superhero costume is trending on the world-wide web. And yes, it depicts Angel as Darna but with a new look and a  more powerful costume.  

Here is the photo of Angel wearing the said new Darna costume:


What can you say about this new look of Darna portrayed by the one and only Angel Locsin?! Is this the costume she will wear as she soar higher in the movie?! Or this is a new superhero (rather than Darna) to be played by Angel? Is this costume better than the previous Darna suit?! What do you think?! (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

Basketball heartthrob Jeron Teng is said to join the "Teen Queen and King" Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla in their hit Primetime TV series "Got to Believe!"

This will gonna be the very first acting stint of Jeron in Philippine TV. Aside from that, it is also said that Jeron will form a love triangle between Kathryn and Daniel who popularize the love team dubbed as "Kathniel."

Now that Jeron joins "Got To Believe," will there be a rivalry between Daniel and Jeron's fans for the hearth of Kathryn?! (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com

"My Husband's Lover" lead actor Tom Rodriguez graced for the first time the cover of Men's Health magazine. After leading the 2013 Cosmomen Magazine of Cosmopolitan's 69 Bachelors, the hunk actor now gave a try to Summit Media's health megazine for men.  

Unlike in Cosmomen, Tom in Men's Health didn't expose his sexy yummy abs. Instead, he wore a black sweat t-shirt. But still, Tom looks hot even though his body is wrapped with cloth.

 Here is the November 2013 issue of Men's Health mag featuring Vincent Soriano, Tom Rodriguez:


After landing a lead role in the country's hit Primetime TV series "My Husband's Lover" pairing him to Dennis Trillo,  it seems that Tom becomes a favorite cover hunk of different magazines. Cosmomen, Garage, Women Today, Yes Magazine, Showbiz Inside,  and many other were some of the magazines which featured Tom on their cover! 

Great one Tom! Keep it up and stay hot! (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

Our country's bet to the prestige beauty pageant Miss Universe 2013 Ariella Arida finished 3RD Runner up in the said pageant. She bested 80 other candidates from across the world and made it to the top five alongside Spain's Patricia Rodríguez who finished 1st runner up; Ecuador's Constanza Báez as 2nd runner up; and Brazil's Jakelyne Oliveira as 4th runner up.
  
Here is the video clip courtesy of Miss Universe's YouTube account of Ariella's question and answer portion which made her on the top four spot



Ariella is a 24-year old beauty queen from Laguna. She graduated with honors from the University of the Philippines-Los Banos with a degree in Chemistry.

Ariella now joins the line of  Venus Raj, Shamcey Supsup, and Janine Tugonon who made it on the Top 5 spots in this beauty pageant from 2010 to 2012. Congratulations Ariella! (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
Philippines’ bet Ariella Arida finished 3rd runner up at the recently concluded “Miss Universe 2013” pageant held in Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia that aired live on Velvet and early this morning on ABS-CBN with Miss Venezuela Gabriela Isler taking home the coveted diamond nexus crown.

The 24-year-old beauty from Laguna bested 80 other candidates from across the world and made it to the top five alongside Spain's Patricia Rodríguez who finished 1st runner up; Ecuador's Constanza Báez as 2nd runner up; and Brazil's Jakelyne Oliveira as 4th runner up.



Tension definitely rose among viewers when Ariella, who graduated with honors from the University of the Philippines-Los Banos with a degree in Chemistry, was called last in the top 16 after winning the official online polls.

She then strutted on stage wearing a red bikini and stole the show with her signature turn before advancing to the top ten.

In the evening gown competition, Ariella elegantly paraded a yellow dress that finally earned her a spot in the top five.

For the final question and answer, Miss Philippines was asked by judge Tara Lipinski with the question, “What can be done about the lack of jobs for young people starting their careers around the world?"

Ariella, the only candidate who did not use an interpreter, confidently answered, "For the people who have lack of jobs, I do believe that we people should invest in education and that is my primary advocacy, because we all know that if everyone of us is educated and well aware of what we are doing, we could land into jobs and we could land a good career in the future. Education is the primary source and ticket to a better future."


Ariella continues the winning streak of Filipina beauties who made it to the top five of the prestigious pageant ever since Miss Universe 4th runner up Venus Raj started the trend in 2010. She followed the footsteps of Shamcey Supsup who also finished 3rd runner up in 2011. Janine Tugonon remains to be the Philippine representative who came closest to the crown when she won 1st runner up last year alongside Miriam Quimbao who almost clinched the title in 1999.

ABS-CBN, the home of Miss Universe in the Philippines, aired the pageant live via its cable channel Velvet and through a special telecast on ABS-CBN.

Watch the replay tonight on Velvet at 7 PM and ABS-CBN’s Sunday’s Best at 10:45 PM. (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)

ABS-CBn finally released the full character teaser of their upcoming drama series "The Legal Wife."  The said Primetime TV series stars Jericho Rosales, Maja Salvador, JC De Vera, and Angel Locsin.  

Here is the full teaser of "The Legal Wife" featuring Angel, Maja, JC, and Echo depicting their characters in the story. Let's all watch this:



The teaser also revealed the theme song of the teleserye. It is "Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin" sung by Angeline Quinto. This song was originally popularized by the Megastar Ms. Sharon Cuneta and was used in the 1996 Star Cinema movie "Madrasta" which also starred Sharon with Christopher De Leon and Claudine Barretto.

Are you now more excited for "The Legal Wife?!" It is set to premiere this year and said to replace Gerald Anderson's "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin" which is now down to its second to the last week! (www.tvseriecraze.blogspot.com)


The Season 3 of the hit US werewolf TV series "Teen Wolf" now goes into its most daring and most sensitive part - it dares to show love scenes between two hunk men! 

If in the Philippines finally dared to give us the controversial "My Husband's Lover" which featured a relationship between same sex (but still wholesome since it didn't showed any kissing or love scenes between the two lead male actors), "Teen Wolf" on the other hand didn't failed the audience! It is more liberating and it tackles more daring relationship between two men with sizzling bed scenes!

Dubbed as "The Gayest Teen Wolf Moments," here is a video clip of "Teen Wolf" Season 3 courtesy of logotv.com compiling the Teen Wolf's Man-to-Man scenes:



What can you say about the TV series? Since the Philippine television now started "My Husband's Lover," do you think we will have a new TV series more daring like the "Teen Wolf" in the near future knowing that many TV stations in the country were giving us teleseryes patterned from the other country?! (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com) 


"One More Try," the classic OPM hit which was performed by Ms. Kuh Ledesma is the official theme song of the hit GMA-7's phenomenal TV series "My Husband's Lover." The song narrated the love story of Vincent Soriano and Eric Del Mundo, the well-loved characters of Tom Rodriguez and Dennis Trillo.

Tom and Dennis have their version of the said song. Yes, the hunk actors performed the song in a duet. Their duet version is included in their album TomDen under GMA Records.

During the media launch of TomDen Album in Centerstage, Timog, Quezon City, Tom and Dennis performed live the theme song of their hit teleserye. Here they go: 



More live performances of Tom and Dennis of their songs were all in my lifestyle website:  The Lifestyle Portal.

 Also included in the TomDen album are "Stay," "It's Over," and "Kailan Man" sung by Dennis and "Photograph," "Hey It's Me,"  and "Ikaw Ang Sagot" performed by Tom. "Forever" originally done by Martin Nieverra and Regine Velasquez were also performed by Tom and Dennis via duet.    

TomDen album is now available in the different music stores and online like iTunes. (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
"My Husband's Lover" is one of the breakthrough in Philippine television. This is the very first time that a Pinoy teleserye tackles a sensitive issue which is actually happening in a real-life situation. And because of that, the series from GMA network eventually dominate the Primetime. As it ended last month, viewers truly missed the series.   

Although MHL already concluded, it's not yet the end for TomDen, the hit love team of Tom Rodriguez  and Dennis Trillo who popularized the characters of Vincent Soriano and Eric Del Mundo on Primetime. After the two hunk actors shared their acting stint in TV, now it's time to conquer the music scene!  

GMA Records finally released the album of Dennis and Tom called TomDen. The album contains 8 songs sung by Dennis and Tom showcasing their singing talent. It has both original and revival tracks from the classic OPM hit love songs.       





Tom and Dennis shared equal tracks on the album. Three songs were sung by Dennis while the other three from Tom. Then of course the remaining two songs namely "One More Try," the official theme song of MHL and "Forever," the hit song originally performed by Martin Nievera and Regine Velasquez were sang by the love team via duet. 

Two of the songs were  from Dennis and Tom's original composition. These are "Ikaw ang Sagot" sung by Tom and "Kailan Man" from Dennis.

Aside from that, Tom and Dennis give a new life to the classic OPM hits which we all grew up with. Dennis performed with his cool-ice voice the Joey Albert's "It's Over" and the Ric's original "Stay" which happened to be two of my top favorite hits! Tom on the other hand breath a new life to Ariel Rivera's "Photograph" and to Joey Albert's "Hey It's Me."     

Dennis Trillo Thinked if To Whom from His Previous Relationships He Will Share One of the Songs in Their Album.

Tom Rodriguez Laughed in a Particular Question from the Member of the Media.

During the media launch of TomDen Album in Centerstage, Timog, Quezon City, Tom and Dennis shared how they can relate with the songs included in the album. For Tom, it was "Photograph" since it narrates his humble beginning in showbiz. For Dennis, it was "Stay" which has a romantic affiliation.   

"Stay" and "One More Try" were two of the songs included in the album where the members of the media cracked questions for Dennis. The questions went: "Para sa'yo Dennis sino sa mga naka-relasyon mo ang gusto mong mag-Stay at magkaroon ng One More Try?"  Dennis frankly and safely replied, "Wala!"  'It's Over na for all of them," he added.     

Tom on the other hand talked about his family on state. He revealed that during their upcoming "My Husband's Lover" concert in L.A. USA, he wants his family to watch him singing and performing in front of the crowd. "First time kase nila akong makikita at maririnig na kumakanta. Nuon 'nung wala pa ako sa showbiz, hindi nila ako nakikitang kumakanta ng ganito. Minsan lang sa haus or sa CR," he shared.   

Talking about Dennis and Tom's singing talent, Dennis already released his first solo album before under different recording company which includes his smash hit "All Out of Love." Tom on the other hand was a former member of the ABS-CBN's ASAP singing boy group "Boys Are Boys" which includes Markki Stroem, Guchi Lorenzana, Alex Castro, JM De Guzman,  and Bryan Termulo.

ABS-CBN brings you a crazy love story about two people, both stuck in bad marriages, who will find the love they’ve been longing for in each other’s arms beginning Monday (Nov 4) in the much-awaited premiere of Asianovela “Crazy Love.”

Michelle already has the perfect family but there are people around her who want to take it all away. Despite having a loving husband and daughter, Michelle has a difficult mother-in-law to deal with, who hate her so much for not giving her a grandson, and a cunning old friend, who intends to steal her man.

Rupert, meanwhile, is a successful lawyer stuck with an overly jealous wife. He was left with no choice back then but to marry her since he was betrothed to her by his parents.

The two will meet at the most desperate time when they both want to give up on their relationships. They will develop a special kind of friendship which will later turn into a secret love affair.

“The X Factor Philippines” first grand winner KZ Tandingan sings the theme song of the soap titled “Bakit Lumuluha” from her debut album.

This November, GMA Network presents Villa Quintana, a heartwarming love story that became a phenomenal hit series in the mid-90s. Mothers today are definitely sentimental when they reminisce the love between Isagani and Lynette, originally portrayed by Keempee de Leon and Donna Cruz.

Kapuso teen heartthrob Elmo Magalona and promising Kapuso actress Janine Gutierrez reprise the roles, driving strong anticipation among fans of the original series, reaffirming that their first team-up on-screen is one of this year's most exciting casting coups.

As they breathe life into the characters of Isagani Samonte and Lynette Quintana, they retell a great love story in a way that best represents how sweet young love can be. Women, young and old, would definitely fall in love once again with Villa Quintana's triumphant celebration of love amidst challenges.

Isagani (Elmo) is the lovechild of Robert and Lumeng but will grow up knowing his father is Felix. He lives a simple life in the farm together with his parents. He eventually falls and fights for his love for Lynette. Meanwhile, Lynette (Janine) will be mistaken by Don Manolo as the child of Robert and Lumeng. Thus she grows up living a very comfortable and affluent life. She requites Isagani's affection. And their love for each other will once again become television's finest romantic tale.

Villa Quintana is not only an acting piece for the new team up of Elmo and Janine but also the show’s love triangle of bankable stars: Raymart Santiago, Sunshine Dizon and Paolo Contis.



Raymart plays the role of Felix Samonte. He stood as the father of Isagani when Robert abandoned Lumeng and because he always loved Lumeng, he married her to save her from disgrace. He is a kind, understanding and patient person but he also fights for what he believes in. Paolo portrays the role of Robert Quintana, the only son of Don Manolo and the real father of Isagani. He falls in love with Lumeng but Don Manolo is against it because Lumeng is not from a prominent and landed family.

Lumeng Samonte, the mother of Isagani is portrayed by Sunshine. Robert was her first love but she eventually married Felix. She is smart, fearless and has a strong and positive outlook in life. She focuses on possibilities rather than life’s challenges and will stand up and fight for her family and for what they rightfully deserve.

Villa Quintana is inspiring as it fulfills every woman's aspiration for a good family life, characterized by unwavering love for each and every member. The show also upholds every viewer's pursuit of love and self-significance that affluence nor poverty could ever scorn.

The series is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, their family's tension against the brewing romance that's driven by past hurts and offenses. Lumeng is not in favor of the relationship because of how the Quintanas treated her when she was younger. But Isagani will continue to fight for his love for Lynette, despite his mother’s objections and while the Quintanas betroth Lynette to a young man who also comes from a wealthy and influential clan. Being educated abroad, Lynette affirms her independence and upholds her right to choose the man she loves, which results to a bitter struggle with her family, particularly her grandfather Don Manolo who is against any type of modernization.

Nothing can separate Isagani and Lynette, not even the manipulative pressures from the Quintanas.

Everything changes when Lumeng discovers a secret of the Quintanas that overturns odds, a detail from the past that affects the fate of the young couple's love for each other.

Will the revelation affect the love between Isagani and Lynette? Or will their love for each other prevail? How will their families accept the truth?

Under the direction of Ms. Gina Alajar, the remake of the 90’s hit series Villa Quintana will not only tackle love but also family values, relationships and principles worth fighting for.

The show also stars Roy Alvarez as Don Manolo Quintana, Maricar De Mesa as Stella, Tanya Garcia as Amparing, Kyla as Ruby, Marky Lopez as Chito, Juancho Trivino as Jason and Rita de Guzman as Patrice.

The creative team is composed of Creative Director Jun Lana; Afternoon Prime Head Roy Iglesias; Creative Consultant Des Garbes Severino; Concept Creator and Headwriter RJ Nuevas; Writers Leilani Chavez and Marlon Miguel; and Brainstormers Gilda Olvidado, Ma. Christina Velasco, Borgy Danao and Jake Somera.

Villa Quintana, created by the GMA Drama Group, is supervised by the Executive In-charge of Production Lilybeth G. Rasonable; VP for Drama Redgie Acuña Magno, AVP for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy, and Program Manager Camille D. Hermoso.

Villa Quintana premieres November 4 on GMA Afternoon Prime. (www.tvseriescraze.blogspot.com)
