Cristine Reyes Fights Back Against Daughter’s Kidnappers in 'Ipaglaban Mo'


Cristine Reyes returns to acting and portrays the challenging role of a mother whose very own nail salon customer kidnapped and sold her daughter to a complete stranger in “Ipaglaban Mo.”

Despite being a single mother, Karen strived hard to provide for her daughter Angel. She worked as a nail specialist in a salon where she met Myla (Arlene Muhlach), a woman who was very fond of Angel. Myla liked Angel so much that she would even give Karen extra money so that she could buy what the little girl wanted.

One day, Myla convinced Karen to allow her to take Angel to the mall. Karen easily agreed since she trusted Myla very much. Hours later, however, the two had not come back and Myla and her daughter were nowhere to be found.

Where did Myla bring Angel? Would Karen be able to see her daughter again?

Joining this episode are Cris Villanueva, Raquel Monteza, Tart Carlos, and Jade Ecleo.

Don’t miss the “Takas” episode of “Ipaglaban Mo,” directed by Darnel Villaflor this Saturday (May 27) after “It’s Showtime” on ABS-CBN with a replay every Wednesday on DZMM TeleRadyo and DZMM Radyo Patrol 630.

Philippines to Host Miss Universe 2017


The Philippines has been offered the hosting rights to the next edition of the Miss Universe pageant this November, Department of Tourism (DOT) chair Wanda Teo revealed. 

"Pinagaaralan pa namin iyan pero that's true, they are asking us to host it again this year," Teo told ABS-CBN News' Mario Dumaual. 

The DOT chief shared that members of Miss Universe Organization were pleased with the job they did, especially since the pageant in Manila, they claimed, overshadowed the pre-events of the recent Super Bowl - one of the biggest sporting events in the US.




"Usually, number one iyan (Super Bowl) pero trending pa rin ang Miss Universe," she said, referring to the days after the pageant. "So they really want it badly here in the Philippines." 

Should they accept, however, Teo said that her department will be pushing for more control over the event. "We want it na we would be the one controlling it," she said. 

She also added that they, much like last time, will be looking for sponsors to shoulder the expenses. 

The Philippines played host to the prestigious pageant last January. France's Iris Mittenaere won, succeeding Pia Wurtzbach. 

The 2017 Miss Universe is scheduled for November. This year, the country will be fielding Filipino-British beauty queen Rachel Peters. 

Arjo Atayde's Death Puts "FPJ: Ang Pronbinsyano" to Sky-Rocket TV Ratings


"Ang Probinsyano" continued to keep at bay rival show "Mulawin vs. Ravena" with episodes centering on the death of Joaquin (Arjo Atayde), the series' longtime baddie who killed off one of the major characters early on.




The cop drama drew a national television rating of 41.1%, 43.3%, 42.7% and 40.4% for its Monday to Thursday episodes, respectively. Both numbers were more than double that of GMA-7's newest fantasy series, according to Kantar Media.

The ratings were higher than the show's average for the whole of last year, which stood at 40 percent. 

Many harbingers of doom have been speculating for quite some time that the prolonged storyline might prove to be a death knell for the show. 

But there is very little evidence to suggest that, as a bumper number of viewers tuned in to witness the death of Joaquin, and with ABS-CBN renewing the serye until January 2018.

"Ang Probinsyano" is set to continue as Cardo tries to live a normal family life with now-wife Alyana while still pushing his war against corrupt police officials and big-time criminals.

Q&A with "My Love From The Star" Stars Jennylyn Mercado and Gil Cuerva, Premieres May 29 on GMA Telebabad


Being true to its promise of providing quality entertainment, GMA-7 brings its own adaptation of the well-loved South Korean series "My Love From The Star" starting Monday, May 29.

Starring Jennylyn Mercado and newcomer model/actor Gil Cuerva, "My Love from the Star" is a No.1 South Korean romantic/comedy/sci-fi series that showcases an extraordinary love story about two people coming from different worlds, and how love defies time and space. It's Tagalized version was also aired on GMA-7 early this year and became a nationwide hit that Kapuso Network decided to come up with its own local version.

Gist: Matteo Do (Gil Cuerva) is a cold-hearted alien who was accidentally left behind 400 years ago. Three months before he gets back to the star where he lives, he will meet Steffi Cheon (Jennylyn Mercado), a self-centered but lovable actress who makes him wish to just be an ordinary man. But he will try to keep himself away from her because if he will let go of his only chance to return to his star, he will die on Earth.

Q&A with "My Love from the Star" lead stars Jennylyn Mercado and Gil Cuerva:

Q: The role of Matteo Do was intended for Alden Richards, but GMA execs decided to award the role to him. Is he up for the challenge?
GC: At that time na nag-audition ako, may certain reservations ako, kasi walang assurance na makukuha ko ang role. But now, it's all been very worth it. Hopefully, this is something I do well.

Q: How did he prepare for the role knowing that he's new in the acting department?
GC: Na-culture shock ako nang konti. I guess, it's a different industry sa modeling. I have to make certain adjustments, certain sacrifices. Pero it's something I embrace and I'm ready for it.

I want to get good at acting para naman maganda ang reputation. Ayaw ko naman na yung reputation mo is sikat ka, guwapo ka, pero ang pangit mong umarte. I'll do my best to stay long because this is something that I want.

Q: Reports have it that his kissing scene with Jennylyn reached nine takes, who did it happen?
GC: Very particular kasi si Direk [Joyce Bernal]. Gusto niya ramdam na ramdam. Tapos may certain blocking po. Tapos, yung hinila ko si Jen, it was actually a lot harder to take.

Siyempre si Jennylyn yun, di ba? Talagang nahiya ako, kinabahan ako. Hindi lang basta-basta, ka-kissing scene ko si Jennylyn pa talaga. I guess, a lot of nervousness came out and it took a lot of tries para mawala yun.

Q: While she admits that she's funny in real life, it will be the first time that Jennylyn will portray the role where she needs to make fun of her character.
JM: Puro kasi mga heavy drama ang ginagawa ko, kaya akala ng marami, ma-emote akong tao. ‘Yung maraming hugot parati. Pero in real life, kengkoy ako. Kaya thankful ako na this time, hindi ako iyak nang iyak.

Kaya noong sabihin sa akin na ang Steffi character ay comical, nagustuhan ko agad. Para naman maiba, di ba? Comedy naman ako this time. Na medyo kaaasaran ako dahil sa kaartehan at pagka-diva ni Steffi.

Q: How is she making sure that she will fit correctly on the role of Steffi after her numerous heavy drama TV series in the past seven years?
JM: Si Direk Joyce Bernal pa ang direktor namin dito sa MLFTS. Tinuruan niya ako ng comic timing. Yung natural lang, pero ang bagsak matindi.

Q: How does it feel working with newcomer Gil Cuerva?
JM: Noong una tahimik lang siya talaga. Alam kong kinakabahan kasi malaking role agad ang binigay sa kanya. Pero later on, naging okay na siya at nakikipagkuwentuhan na akin. Unti-unti, nakikilala ko na siya. May serious at funny side din pala si Gil.

Q: Did she give him tips, pointers on how to attack his role and make him comfortable on the set?

Performance-wise, okey naman si Gil. For a newcomer, nakakasabay na siya agad. Pero siyempre, may mga times na nagkakamali siya sa pag-deliver ng lines. Pero natural lang iyon sa mga baguhan. Dumaan din kasi ako sa ganyan, di ba?

Ako naman, bilang leading lady niya, sinusuportahan ko si Gil lalo na sa mga bagay na bago sa kanya. Sinasabi ko nga sa kanya na dumaan din ako sa nararamdaman niya, kaya okay lang kung magkamali siya. Part of being an actor in the business ang magkamali ka, kaya next time matatama mo na siya.

Q:

Replacing ALDUB's "Destined To Be Yours," "My Love from the Star" airs weeknights after "Mulawin vs. Ravena" on GMA Telebabad starting May 29.

In a research conducted by Watsons Insights on Shoppers Experience (WISE), a research division of the world's largest international health and beauty retailer A.S Watson Group, 66 percent of Filipinos believe they have good knowledge on health, however surprisingly, 57 percent do not exercise regularly to stay healthy. 

This shows majority of the Filipinos are interested on health. But, there are so many things that get in their way from stating healthy. Either they get too busy or get too tired from a hectic work schedule, family duties, household chores and long hours of traffic.

"Watsons #GetActive campaign is one of our continuous efforts and part of our commitment to improve the lives and health of Filipinos by inspiring them to take small steps to improve their health," says Watsons Marketing Director Viki Encarnacion. "Small steps such as drinking more water, taking the stairs instead of elevator, taking deep breaths in between work e-mails, walking from one building to another instead of riding a car or taxi if it's just in the same area, walking your dog during weekends, amd smiling more often can go a long way for our health. The list of small steps which we can do is endless, our days are full of opportunities to do these and Watsons can be their partner to improve their health" adds Encarnacion.
