Despite some people's negative reaction to this photo (especially the neck), I still find Andi Eigenmann's Rogue Magazine December 2013 cover photo by Mark Nicdao one of his best shots, yet.

Do you agree?

KC Concepcion to Angel Locsin: "Don't use me."; On Phil Younghusband: "Hindi ko siya kilala."

KC Concepcion to Angel Locsin: "Don't use me."; On Phil Younghusband: "Hindi ko siya kilala."


KC Concepcion finally talked about her involvement with Angel Locsin's ex-boyfriend Phil Younghusband and how she wanted Angel not to drag her in any issue involving her failed relationship with the famous football player.

KC, in an interview with ABS-CBN News' MJ Felipe, shortly after a press conference held Thursday for upcoming film, "Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story," said she is clueless as to how rumors romantically linking him to Phil started, saying the only instance they ever spoke was during a televised interview more than a year ago.

"Honestly, ang tagal ko na ring naririnig 'yan," Concepcion said, when asked to explain her supposed ties with Younghusband. "Ayoko na nga mag-comment about it, kasi nakakapagod na rin 'yung tsismis na wala namang pinaggagalingan."

She continued, "Ako, unang-una, wala akong... Hindi ko siya kilala. I mean, once ko lang siya nakausap siguro, which is 'yung interview pa with 'yung girlfriend [Angel Locsin] niya at the time." referring to the defunct ABS-CBN talk show "The Buzz," which she co-hosted from 2010 to 2011.

As to how the rumor about her and Phil surfaced, KC mentioned the possibility of it being a supposed publicity stunt for Angel's upcoming series.

Angel is set to make her drama series comeback via "The Legal Wife," which also stars Maja Salvador, Jericho Rosales and JC de Vera.

"Ang hindi ko rin alam kung part 'to ng promo ng magiging teleserye ng ex-girlfriend niya," KC said, "Pero sana naman, huwag na nila ako idawit or isama sa gano'n kasi may mga iba namang nangyayari sa buhay ko."

"Parang hindi ko na kailangang bigyan pansin 'yung ibang bagay na... Napaka-busy ko rin. Ang dami kong ginagawa, bakit ako tsinitsismis?"
KC clarified, however, that she bears no ill feelings toward Angel or Phil. "I have nothing against him. Pero hindi ko siya... Pati si Angel, hindi ko naman siya... Hindi kami magkaaway, hindi rin kami close, so hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling." - ABS-CBNNews.com

"The Prayer" All-Star Cast Video Featuring PH Biggest Recording Artists

"The Prayer" All-Star Cast Video Featuring PH Biggest Recording Artists


On October 15, 2013, an earthquake with the energy equivalent to "32 Hiroshima bombs" devastated the Visayas, and parts of Mindanao and Southern Luzon.

Two days later, the Loboc Children's Choir sang, "The Prayer," with the rubble of the hundred year old Loboc Church as their backdrop.

Their performance moved so many people here and abroad. Then, tragedy struck again.

On November 8, Typhoon Yolanda, the most powerful tropical cyclone of the year hit East Samar, Samar and Leyte.

Thousands died. Millions were left hungry, desperate, and homeless.

Relief efforts from the Philippines and the rest of the world are currently helping the victims survive and find temporary homes.

But the bigger challenge is how to help all these people get back to their normal lives.

This is where we took inspiration from the Loboc Children's Choir's performance.

These children may be from Bohol, but their innocent voices represent not just their home province but also earthquake-damaged Cebu, war-stricken Zamboanga, and typhoon-devastated Leyte, Samar, and Iloilo -- all of whom are praying for a miracle to allow them to rebuild their lives.

And so we asked the help of various Filipino artists to lend their voices, to represent our country, and show the world that the Philippines has one voice, one prayer -- that we work together to help our countrymen rebuild their lives brick by brick.

The resulting song will be used to raise funds through downloads. The proceeds will go to the helpPH campaign, a project by the Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation (PDRF). It is a non-profit organization made up of major companies from the private sector and leading NGOs. PDRF, organized in October 2009 after Typhoons Ondoy, Pepeng, and Frank to tap resources for reconstruction efforts during emergencies brought about by calamities, is one of the three identified institutional conduits approved by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas to facilitate cooperation and coordination between the Philippine government and the private sector in formulating and implementing reconstruction strategies.

Its goal for Cebu, Bohol, Zamboanga and now the areas affected by Typhoon Yolanda is long-term solutions and programs that will bring businesses and jobs back to these areas. They are also planning to look into better designs for houses more suited for a country that gets hit by typhoons and earthquakes. They are focusing on rebuilding the communities which includes: immediate help, provide housing, education by rebuilding school houses, providing economic incentives, and livelihood opportunities.

As a way of giving thanks to all the countries that helped us, we offer to them "The "Prayer".

Participating Artists:
Gary Valenciano
Martin Nievera
Kuh Ledesma
Ogie Alcasid
Regine Velasquez-Alcasid
Zsa Zsa Padilla
Lani Misalucha
Noel Cabangon
Christian Bautista
Billy Crawford
Anne Curtis

Justin Bieber Exclusive Interview with Raymond Gutierrez Airs on Showbiz Police this Saturday


Kapatid star and Showbiz Police host Raymond Gutierrez has nothing but praises as he shares his recent one-on-one interview with international pop superstar Justin Bieber.

Bieber flew to the Philippines to visit typhoon-devastated Tacloban as part of his online campaign '#GiveBackPhilippines', a fundraising effort organized by the Canadian singer, in partnership with UNICEF, for the benefit of typhoon Yolanda victims.

Justin's schedule only allowed for one exclusive interview and Raymond was the one who got the sought-after scoop.

In his Twitter account, Raymond shared how his interview turned out beyond his expectations. For Raymond, meeting the international pop sensation in person "made him see Bieber in a different light" and contrary to "what the media presents."

Moved by Justin's love for our countrymen, the Kapatid star became an instant "Belieber".  And while he had to fly to Tacloban to get his exclusive interview, he says the rare opportunity to interview Bieber made it all worth it.

Part of Raymond's exclusive interview with Justin Bieber will air on Showbiz Police this Saturday, 6PM on TV5.

Melanie Marquez Figures in Car Accident

Melanie Marquez Figures in Car Accident


Melanie Marquez, her 13-year-old son Adam and Filipina best friend named Arline survived a horrific accident when their car fell into a ravine 12 foot deep in Arizona last December 8.

The accident was revealed by her daughter Maxine Bumgardner who posted details of the accident on her Facebook page along with a collage of photos of Melanie in her hospital bed and the crashed car revealing the damages it sustained.

Please pray for my mom, Arline and nanay. They were in a car accident a couple days ago and although they are stable and in better condition than before they will need your prayers, love and support. They hit black ice and slid into a cement canal. My brother Adam was with them and walked out with only a couple bruises. We are all so lucky that they are still alive because things could’ve gone so much worst than it did,” she posted.

Bumgardner did not post any other details and updates since then. But Jullie Lopez, a Filipina who is also based in the US, told InterAksyon Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time) that she was surprised to see the former Miss International in the same hospital in Utah where her husband is currently confined.

As narrated by Lopez based on her conversation with Melanie

Lopez said Melanie gave a detailed account of the accident when she visited her in her hospital room.

The ravine was 12 feet high pero nakuha pa ni Melanie na lumabas ng car at gumapang paakyat sa hill na para daw may anghel na bumuhat sa kanya. Kailangan niya umakyat kasi walang signal ang cellphone niya kasi nga parang nasa balon sila,” Lopez said in recalling the actress’ account of the incident.

Buti nahagilap ni Melanie yung phone niya kung hindi, walang makakakita sa kanila. Nung nakaakyat na siya at nagka-signal na yung phone, tinawagan niya agad si Maxine (who lives nearby) at through GPS, na-locate sila ng ambulance. Sumigaw nga daw yung parademics ng ‘We found them!’ nung nakita na sila.”

As told to Lopez, Marquez and company were on their way from Las Vegas back to Richfield, Utah where the actress now lives when the accident happened in Arizona.

Delikado yung nadaanan nila kasi madulas because of the snowy weather. Nakapag-break pa daw si Melanie pero ayun, tuloy-tuloy pa ring nahulog yung sasakyan nila,” Lopez further narrated.

Lopez said son Adam suffered only minor bruises but Melanie, while now stable, suffered a bone fracture on her back.

Okey na naman siya pero maraming X-rays, MRI tapos kailangan na rin niyang mag-brace at hindi pa siya pwedeng bumangon. Medyo maga rin ang face niya kasi tumama sa matigas na bagay nung nahulog sila,” Lopez added. Edwin P. Sallan, InterAksyon.com

Jasmine Curtis Smith Remains a Loyal Kapatid Star

Jasmine Curtis Smith Remains a Loyal Kapatid Star


Award-winning young actress, model, host, endorser Jasmine Curtis-Smith signs a new 3-year exclusive contract with TV5 on Wednesday, December 11, at P.F. Chang Restaurant in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.

A homegrown TV5 talent and hailed as one of the network’s primetime princesses, Jasmine starred in TV5’s TV remake of the hit action-romance film “Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum” opposite JC de Vera in 2011 and played the role of Epifania “Anya” Dionisio in “Nandito Ako,” where she co-starred with Eula Caballero and American Idol Season 7 runner-up David Archuleta in 2012. In the third quarter of 2013, Jasmine starred in TV5’s action series “Undercover” as the leading lady of Derek Ramsay. The project was Jasmine’s 3rd primetime series on the network.

Aside from doing dramas, Jasmine has also done comedy, fantasy, horror and variety by appearing in various TV5 programs such as “Fantastik,” “Hey It’s Saberday!,” “Pidol’s Wonderland,” “Regal Shocker” and presently in “Tropa Mo Ko Unli.”

Hosting-wise, Jasmine topbills the first ever social media music show, “SPINNation,” which airs live every Saturday, 11:00PM on TV5.

 


Earlier this year, Jasmine added a feather in her cap by winning Best Supporting Actress at the Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival for the movie “Transit,” the Philippine entry to the 2014 Oscar Awards. In the winning Indie film, Jasmine played the role of Yael, an OFW’s daughter who is not familiar with the Filipino culture because she was born and raised in Israel.

After her Cinemalaya stint, Jasmine showcased her acting skills once again via the critically acclaimed psycho-thriller “Puti,” an entry to the first CineFilipino Film Festival. In the film, she played the role of Nika, an art student who helps an art forger in his schemes in exchange for the latter’s mentorship.

Meanwhile, Jasmine is considered by media as one of the fastest rising star of 2013 for having starred in different shows, and receiving various offers and endorsements left and right and an acting award at that. The young artist, however, decides to stay with TV5 - the network that “helped her to be where she is today”. With Jasmine’s decision to remain a Kapatid, TV5 will surely have a lot more to offer that will further help the actress develop her talent and explore her potentials as a versatile artist.

To date, Jasmine has 1,399,710 followers on Twitter. Her influence among the youth makes her one of the most bankable celebrity endorsers. A freshman in Ateneo, Jasmine does her best to balance her career and her studies. She also devotes her free time in various advocacies and volunteers for cause organizations such as WorldVision.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” Swings into NY Times Square for New Year's Eve Countdown

“The Amazing Spider-Man” Swings into NY Times Square for New Year's Eve Countdown
 

Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment, co-organizers of Times Square New Year’s Eve, announced today that Spider-Man, New York’s very own super hero, will be named the Official Super Hero of Times Square 2014. He will take part in the Ball Drop celebration, and events leading up to the big night in a partnership with the upcoming movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2™. 
 
Across the globe, Spider-Man fans will get a preview of the excitement awaiting them at the box office in 2014. On New Year’s Eve, an exclusive clip featuring a sneak peek of the film’s Times Square sequence will debut on the district’s iconic video screens, as well as in the evening’s broadcast pool feed and live webcast. 

We welcome Spider-Man, an international icon who has always embodied the spirit of New York, to Times Square this New Year’s Eve,” said Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance. “He will be an amazing addition to the program.”
 
We’re thrilled that Spider-Man will be joining the Times Square New Year’s Eve Celebration,” added Jeff Straus, President of Countdown Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to everything being Amazing in 2014.

 “There’s no celebration like New Year’s Eve in Times Square,” said Marc Webb, Director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. “There’s the sense of energy and excitement that you can only get in New York and we certainly felt that energy and excitement as we shot the entire film here. The people of New York City truly embraced our production, and it’s a wonderful feeling to be returning to Times Square to ring in the New Year.”

Opening across the Philippines on April 30, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.)


About The Amazing Spider-Man 2™ 
 
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2™, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
 
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.
 
Directed by Marc Webb. Produced by Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach. Screen Story and Screenplay by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Jeff Pinkner. Based on the Marvel Comic Book by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

Justin Bieber Good Deed Shares to Typhoon Victims in Tacloban

Justin Bieber Good Deed Shares to Typhoon Victims in Tacloban


Can't get enough of Justin Bieber good deed? Here's a follow-up story on his recent visit to Tacloban, Philippines

He made sure that his arrival is without fanfare and in fact did not want any publicity about it.  But a few days before Justin Bieber arrived, fans were already speculating and rumors started circulating that he will be in Manila.  The whisper grew louder when Beiber tweeted the hashtag #GiveBackPhilippines, a campaign he started to raise funds for Yolanda survivors.  According to TV5 executive Chot Reyes, the project (to bring Bieber in Manila) was in collaboration with SMART, PLDT and TV5.  The Kapatid network was the exclusive broadcaster of Justin's #GiveBackPhilippines Philippine visit and was given access to exclusive on ground photos and videos of Bieber as soon as he landed in Tacloban.  "We were only given a few days to pull this off but somehow, PLDT, SMART and TV5 managed,"  Coach chot revealed.  He, together with a few executives including Wilma Galvante and TV5 CFO Anna Bengzon went Tacloban with Bieber's entourage, comprised of 30 people. 

 






Photos of the international popstar hugging children, singing, dancing, and playing basketball with them circulated online along with videos and news reports c/o TV5 News correspondent MJ Marfori.

Bieber has been raising funds for Yolanda survivors through his #GiveBackPhilippines campaign. He is said to be about to stage a fund-raising concert but chose to fly here and do an global fundraising campaign instead. The singer described his Philippine stop as “the most important” one in his “Believe” world tour, and “the most important trip of my life.” No full-blown feature on this yet but TV5, the exclusive broadcaster of Justin’s #GiveBackPhilippines Philippine visit, is said to be cooking up a TV special. Something to watch out for.

 






Some happy moments captured on camera were Justin embracing a little boy and him singing Christmas carols to Filipino children, all Yolanda survivors, who seemingly couldn’t believe that their idol is right in front of them.#
