Last Saturday ay inamin ni Kim Chiu sa “E-Live” na nagkaroon na ng closure ang naging relasyon nila ni Gerald Anderson matapos ang kanilang pag-uusap sa America kamakailan. Napabalitang nagkaroon ng intimate dinner date ang dalawa sa U.S. nang mag-celebrate ng birthday si Kim doon.

Ayon naman kay Gerald ay open pa rin naman siya sa possibility na makasama si Kim sa kanyang mga projects. “Yung working status namin hindi closed book yun at love team namin, hindi pa sarado yun,” bungad ni Gerald.

Samantala, ang bagong napapabalita ngayon ay madalas daw na nakikitang magka-date sina Gerald at ang dating lady niya sa “Buhawi Jack” na si Jewel Mische. “Hindi kami nagkikita, nakaka-miss nga siya actually. Wala akong nililigawan ngayon. Kung sino man ang ligawan ko kawawa rin, kasi di ko mabigyan ng oras. Sa ngayon focus muna ako sa work,” paglilinaw pa ng binata.

Kaabang-abang naman daw ang bagong project na gagawin ni Gerald ngayon. “Ibang leading lady, ibang story. Yung role ko kakaiba so ang daming dapat abangan sa show na ito,” pagtatapos pa ng aktor.

Kim Chiu goes skydiving with Maja Salvador and Angelica Panganiban in the US



One of the reasons why Kim Chiu’s feeling more inspired nowadays is because she went skydiving with Maja Salvador and Angelica Panganiban during their recent trip to the US. Aside from conquering her fear of heights, she said that such exhilarating experience helped her release her heartaches and hang-ups in life as well. “Nag-skydiving kami sa Sta. Barbara. Wala, masaya lang ako kasi nagawa ko siya. Ang sarap ng feeling. Naisigaw ko na ang dapat isigaw sa 80,000 feet na yun! Sabi nga ni Mr. M (Johnny Manahan, Star Magic Head), ‘Mabuti hindi ka nagpaalam sa akin, kundi hindi kita papayagan.’ Kasi may show pa kami. Siyempre hindi mo naman alam kung ano pwede mangyari ‘di ba,” she related during her recent birthday press con.

The trio also got the chance to meet Hollywood star Ben Stiller and acted like fans by having their pictures taken with him. “Nakita ko si Ben Stiller dun. Nagpa-picture ako with him. Gwapo siya! Nagpaka-fan kami nila Maja and Angelica. Hindi naman namin sinabi na artista kami dito sa Pilipinas. Nagpakilala kami as tourists. Okay naman siya. Binaba naman niya window niya tapos yun, picture picture lang.”

Incidentally, they were in Los Angeles at that time for Kim’s magazine pictorial with 90210 star Matt Lanter, who plays the role of the bad boy Liam Court in the said American series. When asked if the dashing actor got attracted to her during their shoot, Kim was quick to say that Matt already had a girlfriend. “Hindi siya nagka-crush sa akin. Nandun girlfriend niya, nakabantay (laughs). Masaya naman, mabait siya, parang close na kami kahit nun lang kami nagkatrabaho. Ang concept nung pictorial Filipina actress meets Hollywood star Hollywood kaya may picture kami sa Hollywood sign,” she added.

At the end of the interview, Kim also clarified that there’s no reason for people to think that Maja and Angelica are her new best friends just she spent her U.S. vacation with them rather than the other Chiurigogobaschu girls. “Wala namang best friends. Sila lang yung nandun na kasama ko habang nasa US at nagkataon namang magkakasundo kami. Masaya sila kasama, ang kengkoy nila. Kapag namamasyal kami tawa lang kami ng tawa. Tapos lagi kaming nakabonggang outfit kaya enjoy yung girl bonding namin.”

Mariel Rodriguez admits she considered converting to Islam



Mariel Rodriguez said plans of a church wedding to Robin Padilla are currently on hold. The two first tied the knot last August in India under a Muslim rite while shooting the film Tum: My Pledge of Love. But when they announced that they were also planning on getting married in a Catholic church, some heads of the clergy opposed it because under Robin’s religion, which is Islam, a man can have more than one wife, and polygamy is not allowed in the Catholic religion.

“Medyo nalungkot ako nung nalaman kong ganun,” shared Mariel. “Kasi gusto ko yun, faith ko ‘yun, paniniwala ‘ko yun. Tapos biglang ipinagkaila nila sa akin.” The TV host/actress added that her husband knows how important a church wedding is to a girl like her. “Si Robin, kung puwede lang talaga, ibibigay niya lahat ng gusto ko, pati na ‘yun. Kaya lang, paano niya ibibigay, ‘di ba? Siyempre, may mga batas na dapat sundin. So, hold muna.”

She further shared that after hearing about the stand of the Catholic Church, she began reflecting how sadly, most of the time, religion gets in the way of two people to be together and be happy. “Gusto kasi ng Catholic church na magpa-convert muna si Robin, na pilitin ko siya. Meron pang something, like, ‘pag nagkaroon ng anak, dapat maging Catholic din. Para tuloy dun ko na-appreciate lalo yung Islam. Kasi sa Islam, walang pilitan. Tsaka sila, bine-bless nila ako. Hindi kailangan mag-convert ako ng Islam.

“I feel that religion should not be a reason for people not to be together. Tayo, ginawa natin yung religion. Pero ginawa tayo ng Diyos para magmahalan, ‘di ba? Hindi ko na lang iniisip 'yang church wedding na 'yan para hindi na ako maapektuhan ng issue na 'yan.”

In her desire to get married in the Philippines in the presence of their loved ones, Mariel confessed that she once considered converting to Islam, if it was the only solution. “Actually, honestly, yes, I did. Naisip ko 'yan. Pero parang ang pangit naman nung parang nagkaroon ka lang ng problema sa religion mo, tatalikuran mo at magbabago ka ng relihiyon.”

She said she didn’t tell Robin that converting to Islam crossed her mind because ever since they fell in love with one another, the action star never asked her to change religion. “Si Robin hindi alam na naisip ko ‘yun. Pero naisip ko talaga ‘yun. Magiging hypocrite ako ‘pag sinabi ko sa inyo na hindi ko naisip ‘yun.”

While feeling a bit sad about the whole matter, Mariel shared the incident how her grandparents extended their words of comfort. “Alam mo, ang sweet ng lolo ko, nag-text sa akin. Sabi niya, 'Don't worry about your Catholic wedding. What is important is you are happy. Out of nowhere, never akong nag-text sa kanila, bigla silang nag-text. Siguro na-feel nilang naapektuhan ako.”

Mariel added that her lola and lola now take care of Robin like their own grandchild. “Every time na pinapupunta ko sa BF [Homes] ‘yung sasakyan ko, pagbalik nun, may mga steak na. Kasi alam nila na favorite ni Robin yun. Eto namang si Robin, lagi niyang kinakain 'tong steak na pinadadala ng lolo ko!"

Zanjoe Marudo wins his first acting award from Gawad Tanglaw



Zanjoe Marudo recently took home an award from the 9th Gawad Tanglaw Awards for Best Single Performance by an Actor trophy for his Maalaala Mo Kaya episode entitled Kuliglig. In an interview after he received the trophy, Zanjoe shared his happiness about finally winning an acting award. “Nabigla nga ako. Hindi ko inexpect. Ito ang una kong acting award. Bilang aktor ito talaga ang kung baga kukumpleto sa iyo. Hindi ka naman nagtatrabaho para lang magpapansin at humingi ng award. Obligasyon mo ‘yun sa mga manonood. Para sa akin bonus na lang na napapansin ‘yung galing mo at nabibigyan ka ng award.”

The moreno model-turned-actor dedicated his first acting award to those people who inspired him to tirelessly improve on his craft. “Inspirasyon ko ‘yung mga taong naniniwala sa akin, mga patuloy na sumusuporta sa akin. Ginagawa ko naman itong trabaho ko nang mahusay dahil din sa mga taong nagmamahal sa akin. Siyempre para rin ito sa pamilya ko. Sa mga taong laging nandiyan para sa akin simula noong pumasok ako sa showbiz, 2006 ‘yun. Maraming salamat.”

Zanjoe’s 2011 is packed with grand projects which include two teleseryes—Precious Hearts Romances presents Hiyas and Alta—plus the Maalaala Mo Kaya movie with Bea Alonzo and Angel Locsin. He then thanked his home network ABS-CBN for always believing in his talent and professionalism. “Natutuwa ako na napakaraming blessings na dumadating sa akin. Nagpapasalamat ako na ang ABS-CBN patuloy ang pagtitiwala sa akin para gumawa ng magagandang proyekto.”

After last year’s much-publicized split from long time girlfriend Mariel Rodriguez, Zanjoe recently confessed that he is dating Bea. He said that Bea congratulated him upon learning that he won an award from Gawad Tanglaw. “Iba ang nagsabi sa kanya. Natuwa naman siya for me. Nag-congratulate naman siya sa akin.”

When asked, if aside from finally having an acting award and maintaining a successful showbiz career, Bea is among the reasons he is very much happy right now, Zanjoe gave a vague answer. “Basta masaya ako ngayon. Marami namang nagpapasaya sa akin.”

He was then further probed about Bea being his inspiration for work at this time. However, Zanjoe decided to evade giving particular details about his relationship with Bea. “Simula naman noong nag umpisa ako, habang tumatagal unti unti kang natututo dahil sa mga taong nakakatrabaho mo. Hanggang ngayon wala namang nagbago. Nagtatrabaho pa rin ako para ma improve ‘yung sarili ko at dahil masaya ako, hindi lang dahil sa ibang tao.”

Jason Francisco says he is happy with the changes in Melai Cantiveros



Ever since their Pinoy Big Brother Double Up stint, Jason Francisco and Melai Cantiveros’s relationship has been going strong, with the couple currently working together on the daily afternoon series Precious Hearts romances Presents: Mana Po. The 23-year-old actor from Mindoro admitted that he was nervous about headlining the show at first, but he gained more confidence after he did some preparations for it. “Siguro naman ready na kami kasi nag-workshop naman kami kaya medyo siguro nahinog din. Pinaghirapan naming ng todo para malabas namin yung gusto ng mga director,” he said.

Although he admitted that he misses working with her on other shows, Jason said they had to take a more serious approach when they started taping for PHR Presents: Mana Po. “Siyempre miss ko siya kasi dati ‘pag nasa Kokey or Banana Split set kami, nagkukulitan kami. Pero dito sa Mana Po, hindi na kami nagkukulitan kasi kailangan namin i-internalize sa sarili namin yung aming mga character kasi nawawala minsan. Kaya kami napapagalitan ng director tapos minsan nakakalimutan namin yung mga lines pagka-sobra na yung pagkukulitan namin. Minsan ‘di na lang kami nag-uusap para kami na yung iti-take, kailangan na namin mag-concentrate dun sa character namin kasi napakalayo nila dun sa aming totoong sarili. Masyadong madrama dito eh. Mahirap din yung mga English English at mag-pronounce kaya nakakahiya ‘pag nagkakamali,” he said.

Ever since they left PBB, Jason said he has noticed a lot of positive changes in his girlfriend. “Ang natuwa akong pagbabago niya is yung marunong na siya mag-ayos. Kasi dati hindi talaga yan nag-aayos sa sarili niya. Kahit anong gawin ko. Ngayon, marunong na siya mag-ayos, mag-makeup at manamit. Masaya ako dun kasi yun yung klase ng pagbabago na gusto ko eh. ‘Di ba ‘pag may girlfriend ka, ayaw mo naman na hindi maayos itsura? Dati kasi magulo yan sa buhok eh. Yung buhok niya gusto ko lagi maayos,” he explained.

But Jason clarified that this doesn’t mean he wants Melai to totally change how she looks. “Yung kulot siya, gusto ko. Eh ngayon, iba na yung buhok niya. Kasi lagi ng tinutuwid. Okay lang na ganun kasi kumukulot pa rin naman yan. Mamaya-maya kulot na ulit yun ‘pag nabasa,” he added.

When it comes to character, Jason said he is proud of how Melai did not let their growing fame inflate her ego. “Sasabihin ko naman sa kanya yung ganun, kung nag-iiba na siya eh. At saka ako pa naman yung tao na mapag-obserba. Kahit walang ginagawa, kahit nakatingin lang, siyempre hangga’t puwede, sasabihan ko siya. Kaya ko naman siya nagustuhan kasi hindi siya nagbabago. Siguro mahiwalayan ko lang siya ‘pag may nakita akong bagay na hindi na talaga siya yung pagkakakilala ko. Kumbaga nawala na ako sa buhay niya,” he admitted.

After recently giving Melai a ring for their anniversary, Jason is hopeful that their relationship will remain steadfast despite the intrigues that come with being in showbiz. “Sana lang. Sana mas maging stronger pa kami kasi napakahirap ng ating kinatatayuan na lugar. Medyo masikip ito. Alam nila lahat kaya magulo. Pero sana hanggang ngayon magiging matibay pa rin kami. Kasi one year na kami sa showbiz,” he said.

Kim Chiu was surprised to be called Gerald Anderson’s first love



After their careers were launched via Pinoy Big Brother:Teen Edition in 2006, the Kim Ciu-Gerald Anderson love team had been going strong until late last year when they admitted that things were not as picture-perfect as it seems. Add to that fact that Gerald was suddenly being linked to Bea Alonzo which got tongues wagging that the two young stars were definitely going down separate paths. With Kim busy doing the teleserye Binondo Girl and numerous other projects lined up for the year, she says their friendship has settled into a comfortable level once again.

During the launch of Mark Nicdao’s Vantage Magazine last March 6 at the Fashion Walk at Greenbelt 5 in Makati City, the pretty chinita came to support the event which featured an intimate portrait of her and Gerald in the exhibit. “Matagal na yan, nung Metro Magazine shoot pa namin yan. Okay naman kami ni Gerald. Yung samahan nandun pa rin. Yung communication nandun pa rin. Masaya ako para sa kanya kasi andaming magagandang nangyayari sa kanya ngayon and nakaka-proud. Ka-loveteam ko siya dati and now iyun,” she comments.

The slim 20 –year-old also shares how overwhelming it felt to be part of the Vantage exhibit and silent auction. “Masaya ako dahil parang dati ako lang yung nakatingin-tingin sa mga pictures na ganyan pero ngayon nakikita ko na yung self ko na nasa malaking event na ‘to. Siyempre si Mark Nicdao, ang galing na photographer sobra. Nakaka-proud na maging part ng ganitong event, na makita yung picture ko kasama sa maraming mga mukha na nandun,” she adds.

When asked how she felt when Gerald admitted that she was his first love on a recent TV guesting, Kim looked visibly surprised at the very public revelation. “Ang taray naman ni Gerald, hindi ko napanuod yan ha. Teka totoo ba yan? (laughs). Hindi ko alam, ngayon ko lang narinig. Teka lang, naloka ako. Siyempre thank you kay Gerald dahil sinabi niya yun. Siyempre nakakatuwa isipin na ganun pa rin yun. Siyempre nakaka-flatter and nakakatuwa pakinggan na may ganun,” she admits.

For her part, Kim also admits that she also considers the Buhawi Jack star her first love. “Sa part ko, siyempre. Oo naman siya,” she says. Despite both them being single again, the pretty chinita says the thought of a possible reconciliation in the future has not entered her mind, although she is not closing her doors on it either. “Depende sa tao and depende sa panahon at sa pangyayari. Hindi natin alam kung ano pa yung mangyayari. Pero naniniwala ako sa true love. Yun, yun talaga,” she shares.

With regards to the issue of Simon Atkins courting her, Kim says she has yet to really get to know the De La Salle University cager to be able to know if he could be considered as a future boyfriend. “Hindi ko pa alam. Tingnan natin. Okay naman siya. Funny and may sense of humor. May sense siya kausap, ganyan. Hindi pa kami nakakapag-usap talaga, busy rin kasi ang schedules namin,” she admits. Kim also felt flattered by the news that Simon is supposedly asking help from Enchong Dee to be able to ask her out. “Hindi ko kasi alam kung anong sasabihin. Kung anong tamang word para dun pero salamat dahil naghahanap siya ng way para mag-meet kami, yun lang. I’m flattered. Hindi ko alam eh. Wala akong masabi (laughs). Hindi ko alam,” she shyly says. As of the moment, Kim says going into another commitment is the farthest thing from her mind at the moment. “Sa ngayon, nasa learning experience pa ako and ini-enjoy ko muna ito para pag dumating na yung tamang tao para sa akin, tama na yung pag-iisip ko, ganyan,” she says.

Gerald Anderson reveals what he finds attractive about Sarah Geronimo



Gerald Anderson and Sarah Geronimo admitted in their interviews that they have grown more comfortable with each other while shooting for their highly anticipated movie Catch Me, I’m In Love which is coming up this March 23.

Gerald revealed that during their first shooting days, Sarah was uneasy with him, until she committed a blooper which helped them be more at ease with each another. The actor shared that in a scene where their faces needed to be really close, Sarah tried to suppress a laugh so she accidentally sprayed saliva on Gerald’s face. “Sabi ko nga buti na lang nangyari ‘yon kasi kumbaga ‘yun ang ice-breaker and ‘yun simula no’n mas naging magaan,” shared Gerald and then joked, “Siguro magandang way din ‘yon, gagawin ko rin ‘yun sa mga leading lady ko.” The scene that the actor was referring to was the one shown in the trailer when he caught Sarah from falling when he opened the car’s door.

Gerald also said that he really admires Sarah’s family, specifically Mommy Divine, who is always with the Pop Star Princess to attend to her needs while shooting. “Pinoy [trait] kumbaga, mas nakaka-attract ‘yung mas conservative na babae na mahal ‘yung pamilya.”

He denied that the over-protectiveness of Sarah’s parents has hindered him from getting close to the singer-actress. “Sa akin, like I said, mas na-attract ako sa mga ganung sitwasyon, conservative. Bata pa lang si Sarah ganun na, she’s very lucky to have parents like that.” Gerald continued that he believes that Sarah’s parents did a great job in raising her to be down-to-earth and caring and is glad that he is friends with Sarah. “Sa ngayon friends lang kami. Sobra ko siyang ina-admire talaga.” He described Sarah’s family as really loving and added that he is also friends with the singer’s parents.

Since Gerald is also a good friend of Rayver Cruz, some members of the press asked Gerald during his recent birthday press con if he and Sarah sometimes talk about the Rayver, who is Sarah’s ex-boyfriend. “Wala. Hindi namin pinag-uusapan ‘yan kumbaga gusto namin magaan ‘yung set,” he answered.

He also added that there is no reason for him to worry about being caught up in the middle of Sarah and Rayver’s issues. “Hindi naman. Hindi naman ako kasama sa sitwasyon, kung anuman ang nangyayari. Kaibigan ko si Rayver, leading lady ko si Sarah, but magkahiwalay ‘yon.”
