ABS-CBN Stos Airing of MMK Rape of a Minor Episode, Replaces by Zaijian Jaranilla's Tour Guide Episode


ABS-CBN's drama anthology show has postponed airing a sensitive episode dealing with the rape of a minor.

Maalaala Mo Kaya will not air the said episode this Saturday, June 2, since the episode will have to be reviewed first by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.

Former Goin’ Bulilit child star Jane Oineza portrays the 15-year-old girl who was recurrently raped by her stepfather. She is joined in this episode by Angel Aquino, who is cast as her mother. Angel's character reportedly assisted her live-in partner while doing the act of rape.

Aside from Jane and Angel, this episode also stars Carlos Morales, RS Francisco, Vangie Labalan, Ana Abad Santos, Archie Alemania, Gerald Madrid, Jacko Benin, Kyline Alcantara, Liz Alindogan, Jesette Prospero, Minco Fabregas, and Elaine Quemuel. It was researched by Mae Rose Balanay, written by Benson Logronio, and directed by Nuel Naval.

Here is the official statement of the Kapamilya Network regarding this issue:

ABS-CBN has postponed the airing of this week's episode of 'Maalala Mo Kaya' pending a review by the MTRCB. We will be airing it once MTRCB gives the green light."

Instead of airing the sensitive episode on June 2, MMK will air an inspiring story of a hardworking young tour guide in Tuguegarao.

Zaijian Jaranilla portrays Andoy, a lonesome boy who grew up without a mother and was raised solely by his father, Jerry (Zoren Legaspi), who is seldom home.

Being left alone most of the time, Andoy decided to sign up as one of the tour guides in the famous Callao Cave without his father’s knowledge. Soon, Andoy became a well-known tour guide in their town.

But instead of being proud of his son’s achievement, Jerry is furious when he learns about the whole thing and even forces Andoy to quit his job.

This MMK episode will also star Wendy Valdez, Lui Manansala, Niña Dolino, Dionne Monsanto, and Kyle Balili. It was written by Joan Habana and directed by Emmanuel Palo.

Maalaala Mo Kaya airs after Wansapanataym on ABS-CBN.

Adam Lambert "Never Close Our Eyes" Music Video and Lyrics


Catch here the official music video and lyrics of Adam Lambert's newest song "Never Close Our Eyes" from his new album "Trespassing."





I wish that this night would never be over
There's plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let's just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

I don't wanna let a minute get away
Cause we got no time to lose
None of us are promised to see tomorrow
And what we do is ours to choose

Forget about the sunrise
Fight the sleep in your eyes
I don't wanna miss a second with you
Let's stay this way forever
It's only getting better if we want it to

You know that I wish that this night would never be over
There's plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let's just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

It's so hard to think this could fade away
But what goes up must come down
Why can't we just live life with no consequence
And always live in the now

Forget about the sunrise
Fight the sleep in your eyes
I don't wanna miss a second with you
Let's stay this way forever
It's only getting better if we want it to

You know that I wish that this night would never be over
There's plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let's just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never

Oooooooooooo, yeahhhhhh, ooooooooo, yeaaahhhhhh

You know that I wish that this night would never be over
There's plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let's just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we'd never close our eyes, our eyes, never

The Kitchen Musical’s soundtrack Vol.1, distributed by Universal Records, has also been recently released with Christian’s rendition of George Michael’s Faith, REM’s Losing My Religion, among others. It also includes Karylle’s take on Matchbox 20’s Unwell.

Tom Cruise Will Rock Your World in ‘Rock of Ages’

Tom Cruise Will Rock Your World in ‘Rock of Ages’


Tom Cruise, one of filmdom’s brightest superstars, plays the fictional Stacee Jaxx, one of music’s biggest stars, in New Line Cinema’s epic musical “Rock of Ages.”

In the film, Stacee Jaxx is the rock god that every guy wants to be and that every woman wants to bed. The lead singer of Arsenal, Stacee is at a turning point in his career, and in his life. He’s about to go solo, and his final show with the band is at The Bourbon Room. It’s a homecoming of sorts, as he played his first gig there back in the day. But fame and fortune may have come too easily to the front man who, after years of indulgence, has become boozed up and blasé to the point of bored, and less than reliable when it comes to showing up for his own shows.

The casting of Stacee Jaxx turned out to be somewhat serendipitous. “I was thinking to myself, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if we got one of the biggest movie stars in the world to play one of the biggest rock stars in the world?’” Shankman reflects. “And, as luck would have it, I ran into Tom Cruise, told him I was directing this movie, that it was a musical, and that I was going to offer him this part. He said, ‘Are you serious?’ I said I was. Then I described Stacee to him and he laughed really hard. The next thing I knew, he was in, and I was making a musical with Tom Cruise.




To play the role, Cruise underwent a complete transformation, and Shankman admired his diligence. “From the moment he signed on, Tom started training his voice with an incredible vocal coach, Ron Anderson. I remember the first time we heard him sing. He’s got this outrageous, four-octave range—turns out he has opera singers in his ancestry, so he’s probably genetically predisposed to sing, but no one’s ever asked him to before. I’m just the lucky recipient of this revelation, I suppose,” he smiles.

The joy at having discovered that he can sing was a huge relief,” Shankman admits, recalling that both he and the actor had long wanted to collaborate on a project when “Rock of Ages” came along. “There was a moment when we were looking at each other and Tom said, ‘Well, what if I can’t sell this? Because I won’t do it if it’s not me singing.’ With everything he does, from stunts to performing in front of an audience, it has to be him doing it. He believes his audience has come to expect that, and why bother doing it otherwise? But this is what he loves. He loves making movies and he wants to be really good, so he works harder than anybody at it.”

Tom is a rock god because he brings all of the star power that comes along with being Tom Cruise, and he’s found a character that audiences have never seen before,” Shankman concludes. He describes Stacee Jaxx as being “one of those man-children that no one ever says ‘no’ to. He’s not a bull in a China shop. He’s just a guy who doesn’t even know what boundaries are. And his go-to has just become sex because that’s the only thing he really knows anymore, but it’s not because he wants anything.”



Opening across the Philippines in June 14, 2012, “Rock of Ages” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash 2010 Big Winner James Reid and sixth placer Bret Jackson have released their debut single titled "Hope Its Soon" off of their debut album called "We Are Whatever (WAW)" under Star Records. Listen and sing with James and Bret below:




On a bus, on a plane on the road switching lanes
She call me up to see if I'm make it home someday
I tell her I really don’t know I really don’t know

And that’s gonna hurt her again
Something I never wanna do to her again
Maybe were better off just being friends

But she always tell me it will be us in the end
But how does she know she just knows
Something she explained to me before (me before)

Shit got crazy before things were hazy before
When I was nobody and no one wanted to play me
Or the songs or the music that I made

I was just a kid who didn’t have a name

‘Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka?’ Premieres June 4 on GMA Afternoon Prime


GMA-7 offers an intriguing but no less heartrending addition to its unbeatable afternoon drama block with “Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka?” The program will air beginning June 4, Monday, after Hiram na Puso on GMA Afternoon Prime.

Starring Geoff Eigenmann, Jennica Garcia and Jackie Rice, Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka? follows a compelling storyline that explores how bonds between family members are put to the test in the face of love. It also features Michael de Mesa, Angelika dela Cruz, Bobby Andrews, and Sharmaine Arnaiz together with Bubbles Paraiso, Diego Castro, and Pancho Magno.

“Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka? is deliciously daring and sinfully addicting,” described its director Mr. Mark Reyes. “It’s very exciting to see real life father and son Michael de Mesa and Geoff Eigenmann face off as rivals in an edgy love triangle with Jackie Rice, as we guarantee everyone an unpredictable show.”

While this new Kapuso afternoon drama delves on mature topics, it also looks at a person’s capacity to bear with life’s challenges, and sacrifice for the sake of his or her loved ones.

In the series, sisters Erica (Jackie Rice) and Bianca (Jennica Garcia) have always lived a happy and comfortable life with their parents that painted for them an ideal image of “true love”.

Keeping this so-called image in mind, the simple and unassuming Erica meets the endearingly handsome yet arrogant Jake (Geoff Eigenmann) and falls in love with him. But her idea of a perfect love story was ruined after Jake mysteriously disappeared and was never heard from again.

As Erica tries to move on with her family by her side, life takes a dark turn when they meet an accident that left both Erica and Bianca’s parents dead.

Things only become worse after the girls realize that their parents have been hiding their family’s real financial situation for some time. Both must now make a living on their own in order for them to survive.

Tension begins to grow between the two sisters but even more when Bianca finds out that she might be in danger of losing her sight as a result of the accident.

With no one else to turn to, Erica approaches her boss Jaime (Michael de Mesa), a divorced businessman who has always paid special attention to her, and asks him to take care of the expenses for Bianca’s operation making way for the sisters’ reconciliation.

Soon after, Jaime professes his feelings for Erica, and eventually asks for her hand in marriage. Erica, being reminded of the many good things Jaime has done for her and her sister, agrees.

As the day of their wedding approaches, Erica’s life turns upside down when Jaime’s children from his first wife Beatrice (Sharmaine Arnaiz) return – Jaime’s scheming daughter Leslie (Angelika dela Cruz) and son, Joaquin (Geoff Eigenmann), who turns out to be Erica’s former boyfriend Jake.

Still having feelings for her first love, how will Erica reveal the truth to Jaime whom she and Bianca are beholden so much of their lives to? What will come out of this unexpected rivalry between Jaime and his son Jake? What lengths will Leslie take to ruin Erica’s reputation in the eyes of her father as well as her brother? Can anything or anyone still come between Erica and Bianca?

Discover the answers in this afternoon drama created by the GMA Drama Group led by GMA Entertainment OIC Lilybeth Rasonable, AVP for Drama Redgie Acuña Magno, Senior Program Manager Cheryl Ching-Sy, Program Manager Hazel Abonita, and executive producer Joy Lumboy-Pili. The show is crafted by creative director Jun Lana, creative head Roy Iglesias, creative consultant Des Garbes-Severino, concept creator Kit Villanueva-Langit, and headwriter Agnes Gagelonia-Uligan.

Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka? redefines love, sacrifice and rivalry beginning June 4 after Hiram na Puso on GMA Afternoon Prime.

MTRCB Suspends "T3 Kapatid Sagot Kita!" for 3 Months; TV5 Releases Statement


The Movie and TV Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) today hands down its 3-months suspension order and a fine of P100,000 for TV5's daily afternoon public affairs program "T3 Kapatid Sagot Kita!"

The decision was made in relation to the threat its hosts Erwin Tulfo, Ben Tulfo and Raffy Tulfo put on the lives of Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago during the live airing of the said program on May 8, 2012 (watch the said episode HERE.)

In this regard, TV5 releases a statement condemning the said decision:

TV5 regrets the decision of the MTRCB and views it as an act in excess of its jurisdiction. At this point, TV5 will turn to the Court of Appeals and seek judgment in its pending petition to enjoin the MTRCB from further enforcing the sanctions until a definitive ruling is made on the issue of grave abuse of discretion committed by the Censorship Board.”

Search for Dad Sets Superhero Course in “The Amazing Spider-Man”

Search for Dad Sets Superhero Course in “The Amazing Spider-Man”



It's not just a random mutant spider bite that sets Hollywood's new Peter Parker on the superhero career track.

From the trailers of "The Amazing Spider-Man" (and the six-minute extended footage now playing with “Men In Black 3”) it's clear that something dark and deep is at the heart of Peter's fateful encounter with that spider. He may even be a Spider-Man of destiny.

The footage offers glimpses of the orphan boy's natural father (Campbell Scott), a man shrouded in a mystery that Peter (Andrew Garfield) needs to unravel as a youth.

Garfield, co-star Emma Stone and director Marc Webb would not divulge details, but they did acknowledge that a personal quest puts Peter on a collision course with the spider whose bite imparts superpowers.

"I love the idea of destiny having a hand in Peter Parker's fortune, and not just being a slip and a fall," Garfield said in an interview. "I love the idea of him being meant to assume this symbol."

"The Amazing Spider-Man" maintains the classic Parker family structure of the Marvel Comics and the three previous big-screen blockbusters that starred Tobey Maguire as Peter. Garfield's Peter is raised by his upright Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen) and loving Aunt May (Sally Field).

In Maguire's version, a school field trip took Peter to the lab where that spider gave him the momentous nip. In the new film, Peter's on a mission when fate strikes.

"There's a lot that leads him to that spider bite in this one," Stone said. "It's not just a school field trip. He snuck in there for some reason."

The footage also showed some significant portions setting up Peter's transformation into the web-slinging hero, along with the mutation of a one-armed scientist (Rhys Ifans) into a hulking green villain known as the Lizard.

Though Scott as Peter's father appears only briefly, the footage indicates that his character is pivotal to the fortunes of his son.

"It's about a kid who goes out looking for his father, and he finds himself," Webb said. "I don't want to get too specific beyond that, but that's certainly a big part of what the story's about, my angle on the Peter Parker character. The fact that he's sort of an orphan, I think that's something really interesting to explore."

(Audiences who watch “Men in Black 3” in Digital 3D will get to screen an extended 6-minute sneak peek of “The Amazing Spider-Man” as an added attraction. 2D screenings of “MIB 3” will play a new trailer of “The Amazing Spider-Man.”

Opening across the Philippines on June 29 in Digital 3D, 2D and regular theaters, “The Amazing Spider-Man” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.

Renato Corona Releases Statement on the Guilty Verdict of Senate Impeachment Court

Renato Corona Releases Statement on the Guilty Verdict of Senate Impeachment Court


Following the guilty verdict handed to him by the Senate Impeachment Court for allegedly violating Article 2* of the Philippines Constitution, Chief Justice Renato Corona has released this official statement:

Lubos kong ikinalulungkot ang naging pasiya ng Senate Impeachment Court. Bilang Punong Mahistrado, buong tapang at talino kong hinarap ang hamon ng impeachment at sumailalim ako sa proseso na alinsunod sa Saligang Batas, umaasang makakamit ang hustisyang aking hinanap ng mahigit limang buwan.

Hindi kaila sa akin na gagamitin ng Pangulo ang buong puwersa ng gobyerno, kasama na ang mga ahensiyang dapat sana ay malayang nagpapasiya - ang Kamara, ang BIR, ang LRA, ang AMLC, ang Ombudsman, at iba pa.

Hindi rin kaila sa akin na gagamit ng kabang-yaman para sa mapanira at mapang-aping media campaign, sa radyo, telebisyon at dyaryo, laban sa akin at sa aking pamilya. Lahat po ito ay tinanggap ko, alang-alang sa kasarinlan ng Hudikatura, upang maitaguyod ang kalayaang magpasiya ng mga hukuman, na isang napakahalagang sangkap ng ating demokrasya.

Ngunit nanaig ang masamang pulitika. Wala po akong sala. Wala pong katotohanan ang mga bintang sa akin na nakapaloob sa Articles of Impeachment. Malinis po ang konsyensiya ko. Ngunit isang malungkot na katotohanang pulitikal na minsan ang tingin ng nakararami na nangyari, ay hindi naaayon sa tunay na mga naganap. Lalo na kapag hawak ng iisang tao o pangkat ang buong makinarya ng pamahalaan, at maging ang media na rin, at gamitin ang mga ito upang gumawa ng huwad na dokumento at maglathala ng mapanlinlang na impormasiyon at balita upang manira ng kalaban. Ang lagi nga pong katanungan ay, "Kung malakas ang kaso, bakit kailangan mag-imbento?"

Ang ating bansa ay matagal nang ginambala ng impeachment na ito. At ngayong gabi, inaanyayahan ko kayong talikuran ang naging sentro ng palabas na ito nitong nakaraang limang buwan, upang buuin ang hiblang nagkawatak-watak, at ibaling muli ang ating pansin sa lahat ng mga pagsubok at pangako ng Pilipinas sa susunod na siglo.

Ihinto na po natin ang pulitika ng personal na paninira. Supilin na po natin ang lason na dulot ng labis na kampi-kampihan, labis na pagkakawatak-watak, at hindi mapigilang poot at galit. Hindi po ito ang nararapat para sa ating bayan. Hindi po ito ang buod ng bansang Pilipinas. Panahon na upang isulong ang ating buhay bilang isang bansa.

Tayong lahat ay may mga mahalagang tungkuling dapat tugunan - tunay na mga pagkakataong kailangang samantalahing maabot, totoong mga suliraning kailangang lutasin, at tunay na mga usaping dapat harapin.

Taos-puso po akong nagpapasalamat sa iilang Senador, sina Senador Joker Arroyo, Senadora Miriam Defensor Santiago at Senador Bongbong Marcos na may matatag na kaloobang manindigan sa kabila ng matinding puwersa upang ipaglaban ang kasarinlan ng Hudikatura at ang aking mga karapatan na malinaw na nakasaad sa ating Saligang-Batas.

Nagpapasalamat din po ako sa mga napakarami nating mga kababayan na nagparating ng kanilang pakiki-isa sa amin sa Kataastaasang Hukuman, sa akin, at sa aking pamilya. Kasabay nito, ako po ay humihingi ng paumanhin sa aking maybahay, mga anak at apo, sapagkat sa aking pagtatanggol sa kasarinlan ng Hudikatura ay nailagay ko sila sa kalbaryong hindi naman nila kinailangang maranasan. Pati na rin po sa mga tumulong at sumuporta sa akin, humihingi rin po ako sa inyo ng paumanhin, sapagkat hindi naging sapat ang aking kakayahan upang magtagumpay sa hangarin nating pairalin ang katotohanan.

Kung ito po ang ikabubuti ng ating bayan, tinatanggap ko na po ang kalbaryong aming pinagdaanan. Dahil sa simula't sapul naman, ay handa na akong mag-alay ng sariling buhay para sa bayan. Kung kaya, ipinapaubaya ko na po sa ating Poong Maykapal at sa taong bayan na higit na makapangyarihan sa ating demokrasya ang aking kinabukasan at ang kinabukasan ng ating Hudikatura.

Maraming salamat po.

The Medical City, Pasig City. Ika-29-ng Mayo, 2012.

Renato C. Corona

* Respondent committed culpable violation of the Constitution and/or betrayed the public trust when he failed to disclose to the publick his Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth as required under Sec. 17, Art. XI of the 1987 Constitution.

President Noynoy Aquino Releases Statement on Renato Corona Guilty Verdict


President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, through his Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte, released an official statement related to the guilty verdict of 20 Senator-judges on Chief Justice Renato Corona's impeachment case.

Read Malacanang’s official statement below:

This afternoon, 20 Senators voted to convict Mr. Renato C. Corona on Article II of the Articles of Impeachment.

Our democratic institutions have been strengthened and have been proven to work.

Mr. Corona is merely the public face of the things that ail our justice system.

Let us never forget that those who come to court, be they rich or poor, must do so in the expectation of receiving impartial justice from those who uphold both the spirit and the letter of the law.

The verdict of the Senate is a step forward in terms of restoring public confidence in our courts, and trust in the members of the judiciary."

Lovi Poe Reveals Her Most Memorable Role on TV


After a successful 6 month run on primetime television, “Legacy” comes to an end this June 1.

Ever since it premiered, the show was consistently doing well in ratings.

I will surely miss playing Natasha Alcantara, the character whom I have learned to love so much”, says Lovi Poe.

But even if Legacy shooting has ended, Lovi’s star shines brighter as she starts working on 2 films simultaneously: “Guni-Guni” which marks the mainstream directorial debut of Tara Illenberger and a drama film which will pit her talents against fellow Kapuso lead actress, Jennylyn Mercado.

Meanwhile, Lovi will be in Hong Kong on June 9 for the Run Freedom and Friendship Ball and on June 10 for the “Tayo Na, Magkaisa” Fiesta.
