Truth Comes Out: Jake Ejercito is The Biological Father of Andi Eigenmann's Daughter Ellie

Max Eigenmann, Andi Eigenmann's half-sister to dad Mark Gil just revealed what some people already expected about the biological father of the latter's daughter Ellie.

On Thursday's episode of controversial radio podcast "Good Times With Mo Twister," Max confirmed that Jake is indeed the biological father or Ellie and not Albie Casino as what Andi insisted in the past.

When DJ Mo Twister asked Max about Andi and Jake's on again, off again relationship, she said: "It doesn't bother me. They're always like that."

When Mo commented that he was in favor of them being a couple, Max replied, "Yeah, me too. And you know that he's the father of my niece, right?"

Max went on to insist that Jake wasn't just a father figure to Ellie:

"Yes, he is [the biological father]. They did a test. Yeah, he's the dad. He's the dad. They're co-parenting. That's why he always posts photos of my niece."

Matt Ivan Oda Chopitea and Christian Lloyd Garcia: Murderer or Accomplice to Reynaldo Acaban's Death?

Both goodlooking, oozing with sex appeal, young and famous, and enjoying the best of their worlds. How come they're being accused now as the culprit to the robbery and death of Paco Manila Barangay Captain Reynaldo Acaban?

What went wrong?

Was it another case of hate crime?

Were they in drugs?

Was there a group or other personalities involved that triggered them to commit such a crime?


Christopher Philip Baes (not sure of his relationship with the two) tried shed light on what transpired between them saying:

Their gay barangay captain did not pay them exactly what he promised. Threatened them to expose their naked videos. The other side of the story must be heard too. The barangay official takes advantage of men who needs money and blackamails them for another sexual encounter. 

If that is true, how come there's  a scandal video Christian showing him pleasuring himself which he personally took and posted online? Check out on this LINK.

Jodi Sta. Maria became the newest contestant to win the P1 million jackpot prize in ABS-CBN’s top-rating game show “Minute to Win It: Last Man Standing” after completing her Ultimate Challenge last Monday (September 19).

Jodi remained calm and focused while doing her Ultimate Challenge “Mouth to Mouth,” which tested her skill and quickness in pulling out a paper bill in between empty bottles without toppling them.

She took home a total cash prize of P1.07 million after defeating comedian Pooh in the Head-to-Head Challenge. Jodi said she will be donating her cash prize to charities and foundations she has long supported.

ABS-CBN Partners with Ayala Malls for First ABS-CBN Experience Store

Expect big things to come when media and retail converge to provide viewers and shoppers with the best in entertainment and retail. 

ABS-CBN Corporation, the country’s largest media and entertainment company, will give its followers an immersive experience of its shows, characters, and stories as it tied up with Ayala Malls, the premier lifestyle mall in the country, to open the first ABS-CBN Experience Store in Trinoma Mall in Quezon City in 2017.

ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Katigbak and chief operating officer of broadcast Cory Vidanes signed the agreement with Ayala Land head of commercial business, Jose Emmanuel Jalandoni and Ayala Malls group head Rowena Tomeldan.

The ABS-CBN Experience Store is the start of a strategic and long term partnership between ABS-CBN and Ayala Malls as the two companies known for innovation and excellence in their respective fields complement each other, with ABS-CBN delivering various ways for viewers to experience the stories and characters that Kapamilyas have come to love and Ayala opening fresh and exciting retail experiences through its malls all over the Philippines,” said Katigbak.

Meanwhile, Vidanes said, at the heart of the experience store are the characters and stories that ABS-CBN will bring to life - whether through immersive or digital attractions, games, and merchandise - and give visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of their favorite shows.

The ABS-CBN Experience store offers an immersive experience of the Kapamilya network by allowing visitors to be part of the shows they follow and play the roles they’ve always wanted to play. Also to be showcased is ABS-CBN’s wide assortment of merchandise that allows customers to own a piece of the Kapamilya stories they follow. The experience store will also be the hub of events that will allow people of all ages to spend time with their favorite Kapamilya stars.

The ABS-CBN Experience Store is the newest addition to the company’s consumer business, falling under the ticketed experiences category. ABS-CBN has been giving its followers chances to experience the company in other forms such as movies, concerts, mall events, and studio tours, and the recently launched mini-theme park Kidzania.

ABS-CBN is home to the nation’s top-rating TV programs, box-office films, and best-selling books and music. With the ability to harness the latest in technology and innovation, the company is rapidly transitioning into an agile digital company with the biggest online presence among all media companies, and a growing list of digital properties. ABS-CBN was also first in the country to offer content online and on mobile, and even pioneered digital television in the nation.

Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus Join Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in The Voice Season 11

Singing a new tune as it returns exclusively to StarWorld this September 20, The Voice will be featuring two new judges for its 11th season. Joining singers Adam Levine and Blake Shelton as judges on The Voice Season 11 are R&B diva Alicia Keys and pop superstar Miley Cyrus, making this season the first ever with two female judges on the panel. Host Carson Daly also returns to present this exciting reality competition for the 11th year straight.

Alicia and Miley are set to inject the The Voice with fresh enthusiasm, with both performers bringing years of experience in the entertainment business as well as having distinct personalities that will complement that of Levine and Shelton well. Although Miley's wild-child persona initially seems at odds with Alicia's sophisticated cool, the two artists both have the skills and professionalism to offer contestants solid advice when it comes to performing and developing their vocal talents. Alicia and Miley are replacing Pharrell Williams and Christina Aguilera on the coaching panel for this season, packing the panel with a feminine power that will appeal to a wide audience and inspire more female singers to come to the fore.

Both Alicia and Miley are familiar to fans of The Voicebecause they appeared on the show on previous seasons: Alicia served as an advisor for Team Pharrell in the Battle rehearsals in Season 7, while Miley was chosen to be key advisor for the Knockout rehearsals in Season 10. Their increased role in the show puts them in a position to not only determine the best young singers in the US but to also groom them for potentially successful careers in entertainment, lending their expertise and giving them tips for navigating the highly competitive global music industry. Helping the judges develop the talents of their teams as mentors for the Battle Rounds are revered musical artists, including veteran singer Bette Midler for Team Blake, rock legend Sammy Hagar for Team Adam, YouTube success story Charlie Puth for Team Alicia, and rock goddess Joan Jett for Team Miley.

Charo Espedido, Head of Marketing and Programming at FOX Networks Group Philippines, said, "Season 11 of The Voice promises to be a bigger and more exciting series with the addition of Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys, two very talented and globally respected performers who are perfect examples of strong women who've changed the world of entertainment with their distinct styles. StarWorld is proud to be exclusively delivering this reality series to its solid fan base in the country and holding the banner high for female empowerment."

PICC at 40: Asia's 1st International Convention Center Shines Brighter

The Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), Asia's first international convention center, turned 40 last September 5 with a grand celebration at its Reception Hall.

Four decades after its formal inauguration on September 5, 1976, the PICC has stood the test of time to establish itself as one of the premier event venues in Southeast Asia. Witnessing the greatest moments of the past generations and hosting the most important events in Philippine history, the PICC has become more than just a national landmark, but a shining gem for arts, culture, history and entertainment.

Its biggest events include the 1976 IMF-World Bank Meeting, the 3rd Informal Summit of the ASEAN (1999), the 112th Inter-Parliamentary Union Assembly (2005), the 40th ASEAN Ministerial Meeting, Post Ministerial Conference and ASEAN Regional Forum (2007), 45th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the Asian Development Bank (2012), and the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Meetings in 1996 and 2015. Other significant events held at the PICC include the 1992 World Chess Olympiad and the 1994 Miss Universe Pageant, and concerts by various renowned international artists which include Luciano Pavarotti, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Josh Groban, Janet Jackson, and our very own Lea Salonga. Religious icons have also graced the halls of the center such as Saint Teresa of Calcutta and Saint John Paul II.

The celebration looked back at the grandest moments of the PICC. An exhibit displayed photos from select events, the highlight of which was the handwritten message to PICC by Saint Teresa of Calcutta, who was canonized as a Saint by Pope Francis a day before the PICC anniversary celebration.


Over dinner, guests were treated to an entertainment spectacle hosted by the talented Denise Laurel, with performances from Ballet Manila and top balladeer Christian Bautista. Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor and Chairman of the PICC Board of Directors Amando M. Tetangco, Jr. spoke about the PICC’s legacy as well as the Center’s plans for the future.


PICC’s top clients and loyal partners from the private and government sector were recognized for their valuable support for the Center over the years, and PICC employees who have worked at the Center for at least twenty years were honored with Service Recognition awards for their hard work, dedication, selfless service, and enduring loyalty.

A special award, the PICC Gem, was given to acclaimed singer-actress Lea Salonga, for embodying PICC’s ideals of world-class excellence and global reach, and for showcasing the PICC to the world as the country’s premier event venue. She is the first-ever recipient of the award.

Governor Tetangco, Monetary Board Member Armando L. Suratos, and members of the PICC Board of Directors Pacita Rosalinda Y. Aguirre, Gabriel L. Cruz, Raquel D. Garcia, Cristina M. Sarino and Susan S. Villar and PICC General Manager Renato B. Padilla handed out the awards to the honorees.  The night ended on a high note, with a toast to the PICC’s next “40 years and forward”.

With the PICC continuing to evolve, the national gem only shines brighter as it  combines its rich heritage with a clear mandate and vision of the future.

Moms are super women.

Aside from being the driving force of the household, many moms also play different roles in the work place and in the community. They are the ultimate multi-taskers, often having to sacrifice ‘me’ time for the sake of the family.

Balancing multiple responsibilities is a challenge, even for the toughest moms, but what’s probably most difficult is achieving peace of mind especially when they have to be away from the young ones.

What’s a mom got to do?

The answer is technology. These days, smart gadgets and high-speed internet can empower moms to be in control of the family’s safety and security.

Just ask Asia’s Songbird and modern-day mom Regine Velasquez – Alcasid. Mom to four-year-old Nathaniel James, more fondly known as Nate, Regine exemplifies the modern-day Filipino mom who strikes the balance between her hectic work schedule and her role as a family woman.

Technology helps me become a better mom,” she revealed. “Specifically, I get a lot of help from PLDT HOME.” Regine, who is also an ambassador for the brand, added, “They have a suite of products and services that are designed to give moms like me peace of mind through the power of technology. So far, super helpful talaga siya for me especially when I have to be away for work.”


Forefront of strongest connections at home

As the leader in digital innovations for the home, PLDT HOME designs its products and services to help parents like Regine effectively multi-task while ensuring the safety of their families. Two products which promote peace of mind among working moms are the Fam Cam and Smart Watch.

The Fam Cam is a home monitoring system which allows parents to check on their children remotely, and even communicate with them. The Smart Watch, a personal favorite of Nate, is a multi-functional gadget which kids can use to take photos, play music, and even record voice messages.

According to Regine, they use the Smart Watch to easily talk to Nate because he can directly answer calls using his watch when it is connected to their Telpad or a smart phone. The Alcasids also use it as a WiFi remote for the Telpad or smart phone cameras so it’s easier to take selfies or groufies wherever they are.

Regine also shared how the watch helps teach Nate to become more responsible and aware of his surroundings. Nate’s Smart Watch can come to the rescue using the anti-lost feature. He simply has to click on a button and the connected device will make a sound so it can be located. The Smart Watch will also vibrate if Nate goes more than 10 meters away from the paired device so if the Telpad or smart phone is with Mommy Regine or Daddy Ogie, it will remind him to go back to them.

Nate really loves his Smart Watch,” Regine said. “As a parent, this is a gadget na approve sa akin kasi I can really see that it helps us bond better as a family.”

New members of the PLDT HOME family

Following his mother’s footsteps, Nate was recently launched as the new ambassador for the Smart Watch.

We’re very excited to have Nate on board,“ PLDT VP and Home Marketing Director Gary Dujali said. “He represents the kids of his generation—perennially curious, smart and dynamic. Together with his mom, we look forward to reaching to more families and educating them about the ways technology can help bring them closer.”

Regine added, “Siyempre, I’m super proud of my baby boy! PLDT HOME is close to our hearts and as a family, we are proof that technology can really help make our lives safer and easier.”

PLDT HOME subscribers who upgrade to a Telpad plan automatically get a free 1Mbps HOME DSL speed boost, and for only an additional P199 per month, they can already top up with a Smart Watch. The watch is also available to existing Telpad subscribers. Simply order online and it will be delivered for free. For more information, visit
