Barely a week after he battled American boxer Timothy Bradley, Pinoy boxing superstar and Sarangani Congressman Manny Pacquiao expressed his intention to join the PBA.

In an interview with Gerry Ramos of Spin.ph, Pacquiao confirmed that there are plans to have him suit up for PBA expansion team KIA Motors. "Hindi pa naman final, pero may planong maglaro ako sa PBA," Pacquiao told Ramos.

Like any typical Pinoy, Pacquiao is a passionate basketball fanatic. He used to own and play for the MP Gensan Warriors in Liga Pilipinas. He even plays basketball for cross training before his bouts. If everything goes as planned, Pacquiao will become the oldest rookie ever to enter the league. He will also be the first professional boxer ever to play in the PBA. 

Pacquiao, however, admitted that he needs to clear up the details of his role in Columbia Motors’ KIA team. 

Columbia Motors, along with Blackwater Sports and Metro Pacific Investments (NLEX), were recently accepted by the PBA as expansion teams as part of the league’s expansion program.

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




The hosts of phenomenal reality show “Pinoy Big Brother” and some of its former housemates will be present during the auditions at the Araneta Coliseum on Tuesday (April 15) to show their support for aspiring housemates. 

Ex-housemates from the regular and teen editions from Seasons 1 to 4 will roam around the venue to give tips and bond with the thousands of auditionees who are expected to turn up. 

The event marks the final leg of auditions for the much anticipated new season called “PBB All In,” which will be hosted by Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gonzalez, John Prats, and Robi Domingo. 

The auditions are open to aspiring housemates 15 to 30 years old. Only the first 10,000 will be accommodated for the audition process, which starts at 7 AM. Make sure to bring your birth certificate and a valid ID indicating your birth date. 

The registration and queuing area will be at the Open Parking Lot B (in front of Padi’s Point near the Araneta Coliseum’s Red Gate). All aspiring housemates will be issued a ticket by the Araneta Center and a sticker by “PBB.” Only those with issued tickets and worn stickers will be allowed inside the venue, as the audition has a one ticket and one sticker per applicant policy. 

The venue also has a no re-entry policy, so aspiring housemates are discouraged from leaving the Araneta Coliseum once they’re inside. If they wish to go out, they will not be allowed to enter. Food and drinks are also not allowed inside the coliseum. 

Watch out for “Pinoy Big Brother All In” soon on ABS-CBN. For updates, just follow @PBBabscbn on Twitter or like facebook.com/OfficialPinoyBigBrotherAbsCbn.

As a newly married couple, the relationship between the characters of John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga on the hit sitcom “Home Sweetie Home” may still be at a shaky point during their first year together.

Nicki Minaj Plots Revenge Against Cheating Husband in "The Other Woman"

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Music industry’s most versatile talent, Nicki Minaj stars alongside Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the upcoming estrogen-filled comedy “The Other Woman.”

Minaj’s role channels a very vocal and fashion-forward assistant named Lydia who works for the stunning and tough New York lawyer Carly, played by Diaz whose boyfriend Mark (Waldau) turns out to be a married guy cheating on his wife, Kate (Mann).  The two women don’t appear to have much in common, other than the philandering womanizer who has been tricking both of them. They become great pals, much to Lydia’s initial dismay, and decide to teach the lying Mark a few lessons to prove that cheating will not work.  Everything becomes more complicated when Carly and Kate find out that the charming cheat has been engaging in yet another affair, with the beautiful Amber (Kate Upton) who is half his age. The three of them join forces and conjure up ingenious strategies to give Mark what he deserves, at the same time the bond between them grows stronger.  

Nicki Minaj’s unexpected casting coup added something to the movie that producer Julie Yorn hadn’t counted on: “We all have a sense of Nicki’s persona and larger than life personality, but she came in with the most humble approach and attitude. She was dying to sit at the feet of these other women and learn.”  We always wanted for the character of Lydia to be sassy,” Yorn continues.  “But what was disarming about Nicki was her likability, which actually changed the scripted character.  Lydia became a really important ally to Carly. That’s the chemistry part of it that you don’t expect.  Cameron and Nicki bonded from day one and so you just get a whole different dynamic than anticipated.”

Minaj was a welcome surprise for director Nick Cassavetes, as well: “Lydia says things to Carly that are couched as truths, and that are really preposterous, but they have this unexpected truth that suggests sometimes the correct thing is to do the incorrect thing.”

According to Minaj, Lydia is very opinionated. “She has her own outlook on life and relationships, and you can’t change her mind about anything. She develops a real friendship with Carly.  And Lydia really wants Carly to settle down and meet the right man. So she gets involved a little bit in bringing Mark down and getting Carly to fall in love with someone who’s a good person.”

Lydia is an important person in Carly’s life, because, says Minaj, “Lydia’s the friend that is going to give you tough love. I happen to be that kind of friend. I don’t like when my best friends are sad about a guy. I think all women need a friend who’s going to let us cry and mope, but we also need the friend that’s going to say, ‘Okay, pick it back up.  Let’s go.  You know, we’re not going to be walking around the office moping.’”

Patricia Field helms the movie’s costume design department and styling Nicki Minaj was another highlight for the designers.  “It was really fun to get the chance to dress Nicki for this role,” says Field’s longtime collaborator and protégé Paolo Nieddu.  “She’s the secretary, and the sexy secretary is an image everybody can imagine, so we went with almost a cartoon sexy secretary, with exaggerated colors and prints and lots of different accessories. Every day is a new Lydia.  So you never know what you’re going to get with her.”

Lydia’s looks include high fashion, sexy, and body-conscious pieces that would fill the closet of a girl with a sugar daddy footing the bill.  Some of her designer looks are by Gucci, Roland Mouret, Versace, Herve Leger, Proenza Schoeler, and McQueen – all paired with the most extreme, expensive designer shoes that only a diva could stand wearing to the office.  Nicki Minaj, a noted fashion icon in her own right, was also thrilled to learn Field would be joining the team: “When I heard that Patricia Field was a part of this movie, I was very excited because I knew everybody would be eating their hearts out when they saw all the clothes we wear in this movie, and I knew it was going to be fresh and fun.”

Check out this funny and endearing story on (female) friendship when “The Other Woman” opens May 7 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

"Heaven is for Real is a Perfect Easter Movie" - Church Leaders

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




"What better way for us to celebrate the Easter season! We're going to tell everyone we know: Go see this movie! Regardless of your religious beliefs, you'll be deeply inspired.” That's the ringing endorsement of renowned Hollywood executive Mark Burnett (TV's “Survivor” and History Channel's “The Bible”) after previewing Columbia Pictures' faith-based drama, “Heaven Is For Real.”

"It's is an inspiring film that is a great first step for people who are on the journey, and a great film to foster conversations with unbelievers," concurred Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President, The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.

Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, “Heaven Is For Real” brings to the screen the true story that has inspired millions across the globe – that of a little boy’s extraordinary, life-changing experience, and his father’s search for the courage and conviction to share his son’s discovery with the world.

Academy Award®-nominee Greg Kinnear (“Little Miss Sunshine”) stars as Todd Burpo, a small-town businessman, volunteer firefighter and pastor struggling to make ends meet in a tough year for his family. After his bright young son Colton (Connor Corum) is rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery, Todd and his wife Sonja (Kelly Reilly) are overjoyed by his miraculous survival. But they are wholly unprepared for what happens next -- Colton starts to matter-of-factly recount what he says was an amazing journey to heaven and back. As Colton innocently tells his parents details of things he couldn't possibly know, Todd finds himself colliding against a wall of mystery and doubt, until he breaks through to rediscover hope, wonder and the strength of purpose.

At the real-life Burpos' urging, “Heaven Is For Real” producer Joe Roth joined together with T.D. Jakes, a popular pastor and spiritual leader, to bring the project to the screen. Jakes, was moved by the story’s demonstrated ability to make a difference to all who came across it – from those seeking encouragement in their faith to those just curious to know more.

“I think anyone can relate to an ordinary family who is grappling with the biggest questions,” Jakes says. “We’ve all known tragedy and adversity -- and I think to see this family go through a crisis, and find a place of real resolution, it helps others to believe they’ll find their own place of resolution.”

Other respected members of America's Christian community have also endorsed the film, including Kenneth Copeland of Kenneth Copeland Ministries, who said, "I read Todd Burpo's book, `Heaven is for Real.' It BLESSED me and brought the joy of hope alive to how bright our future in Jesus really is. The movie did a sweet job of bringing that same TRUTH to light that HEAVEN IS REAL!"

For her part, Kim Dorr-Tilley, Associate Pastor of the Bel Air Presbyterian Church, wrote "In this gifted and grace-filled vision from filmmaker Randall Wallace, we experience what is impossible and possible, where doubt and faith collide, where flawed humans emerge as beloved children. This film allows all of us to encounter and participate in a conversation hinged where life and death meet."

"This film opens the door to the reality of Heaven and the love of God. Through the eyes of four-year Colton, we catch a glimpse of an affectionate and caring God who calls us to an eternal community of love and joy. The evidence for this is presented in a respectful way that allows viewers to make their own judgments. It will be encouraging to believers and potentially helpful for skeptics and people 'sitting on the fence,” recommended Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D.

Meanwhile, Angel Ruiz of Young Life Field Ministry testified, "`Heaven Is For Real' is an incredibly powerful and refreshing account of a story that resonates with an innate desire that we all have: to see Jesus. I highly recommend this movie for the whole family!"

Finally, Dr. Sheron C. Patterson of The United Methodists of North Texas Conference, concluded, "It is a blessing to have `Heaven Is For Real' in theatres nationwide. The masses of people need to see that there is power in prayer and that there are modern-day miracles. Colton's story confirms for even the most hardened atheist that there is a God, and God is good!”

Opening across the Philippines on Black Saturday, April 19, “Heaven is for Real” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
