The King of the Gil Invades Araneta

Enrique Gil, Philippine Showbiz's "Dougie King" and one of today's most in-demand young actor, is set to invade the Smart-Araneta Coliseum on November 29 as he brings down his own swag and amuse his supporters at his first ever concert titled "King of the Gil."
"Everyone can expect the best of me in the concert because I will do everything that will make them stand up, dance and enjoy the night. I will definitely teach you how to dougie and much much more!," Enrique promised about his upcoming show produced by Star Events and ABS-CBN. 

 The 21-year old lad owns up that the discovery of his extraordinary talent in dancing is truly unexpected.

Few months after, he once again thrilled the Filipinos with his signature moves as he danced to Psy's "Gentleman&…

Call Center Girl

After the overwhelming success of her breakthrough in drama, A Mother's Story, Pokwang is now making a comeback doing her real forte, which is, comedy. The comedienne we have all loved, is back in another hilarious, smart and entertaining movie, Call Center Girl.
As part of Star Cinema's ongoing 20th anniversary celebration, the giant film outfit teams up with Skylight Productions and takes us to the interesting world of call center agents.

She comes back and finds out that her husband already passed away.

To win back a good r…

Aljur Abrenica Fulfills a Cancer Patient's Wish

Naturally kindhearted and grateful for all the blessings he continuously receives, Aljur Abrenica didn't feel any hesitation when asked to fulfill a young girl's wish to spend an afternoon with him. With the help of Make A Wish Foundation and GMA Artist Center, the 5-year old leukemia patient, Elizabeth or "Isay" felt really happy and excited finally meeting his all-time crush and idol.

Isay's "dream come true" moment happened yesterday, October 21, 2013 at the V. Luna General Hospital in Quezon City. It was truly a heartwarming afternoon as Aljur gave a surprise visit at the hospital hours before Isay's operation. Aljur, who is obviously fond of kids, drew instant connection with Isay and spared his whole afternoon playing and bonding with her.

The fellows from Make A Wish Foundation narrated how excited Isay was when she heard that Aljur is going to visit her. She cried out excitement and jumped and ran around the kiddie center when she found ou…

Come and Get Aljur Abrenica

Unknown to many, Starstruck's Ultimate Hunk and Kapuso Leading Man Aljur Abrenica has a great passion for singing. In fact, he shared during an intimate lunch with him that he learned to love singing first more than acting.
Growing up from a family who loves music, and with his dad as a musician and a band member in their hometown, it is quite inevitable for Aljur to appreciate and embrace singing and music.
Humble and truly down-to-earth, the 23-year old Aljur reveals that the discovery of his knack for singing wasn't expected, and that he was also actually surprised by his talent. It was during his high school year when he was asked to join their school's Mr. Don Bosco Academy contest where he was required to perform for the pageant's talent portion. He recalled that he performed the classic "Macho Gwapito" and received several praises and admiration on his lovely voice and astonishing singing skill. From then on, he fondled on this newly found talent and…

Bea Alonzo is The One

Bea Alonzo is undeniably one of the best actresses our country has ever had. Aside from her pretty and always vibrant face, this 26-year old actress is really admirable when it comes to attitude and work ethics, and truly unquestionable when we talk about her acting prowess.

Bea has done lots of memorable roles and it's not just the roles that are to be credited, these roles become immortal because a brilliant actress portrays them.

At a young age, Bea was very effective as the lawyer Katrina Argos in her first-ever drama series, Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay, with Lorna Tolentino as the  main actress. This is where her depth as an actress was recognized by the public, and where her team-up with equally superb actor John Lloyd Cruz was born.

This was followed by a lot more teleseryes, where she was the main actress, such as It Might Be You, Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin, and Maging Sino Ka Man, Magkaribal and A Beautiful Affair. She was also chosen to be the Philippines' lead actress of t…

I Dare You Season 2

Two years after the first season, ABS-CBN's original reality show "I Dare You" is returning to our TV screens with a new-fangled set of cool and equally competitive hosts.
John Prats, Deniesse Aguilar and Robi Domingo will join Melai Cantiveros, who is the only holdover from the first season, as the hosts of the returning reality show.
Unlike other reality shows where the contestants are just the ones expected to do random physical challenges, what makes I Dare You Season 2 more exciting is that the hosts themselves were surprisingly part of the different obstacles, too.

Also making I Dare You Season 2 unique is the show's aim and vision - to continue to help Filipinos in need with the help of a Celebrity Kakampi. Each episode is focused to the life of an 'everyday Filipino,' whether an individual, a family or a community, who is referred to as the "Bidang Kapamilya" and have inspiring stories to share about their daily struggles. Celebrity Kakamp…

Coco Martin & Juan Dela Cruz

Drama King Coco Martin is undeniably the most popular actor in the country now. He has all the right to claim it and I'm sure no one will even try to contest. From a simple man who just wanted to earn money and survive his everyday life, Coco himself never imagined that he would achieve the superstar status that he has now.

Tagged as the Prince of Philippine Independent Films, Coco is truly admirable on how he recalls his humble beginnings in the industry and never forgets about it. Even if he already is considered as one of the most bankable mainstream actors, he remains to be the humble and passionate guy who is still willing to do independent films. He acknowledges that indie films, where his showbiz career started, will always be a part of him.

From his supporting character in ABS-CBN's hit drama series in 2009, Tayong Dalawa, which had unusually become one of the most-loved villains because of his excellent portrayal, Coco Martin's career in showbiz suddenly skyroc…

Shane Filan in Manila

Being a '90s kid myself, I cannot deny the memories I have had with boybands. Yes, boybands were definitely everybody's favorite during my days in high school (early 2000's). Girls scream for charming guys who sing while doing entertaining dance routines, and boys also do love to sing and pretend like they're part of a famous singing male group. 

Of all the boybands that conquered the music charts, the Irish group Westlife, is one of my personal favorites. In fact, I have original copies of all their albums - special thanks to my best friend who also loves the group, he always buys me one and gives it to me as a gift. Also, Westlife's "Swear It Again" is the song I first sang onstage during a school program.

Among the members of the group, it was of course their lead vocalist, Shane Filan, who I admire the most. I can still clearly remember when my schoolmates used to tell me that I sound like him whenever I sing Westlife's songs. With this, whethe…

Westlife Frontman Shane Filan Goes Solo

“Once I started writing, I felt that if it can be sung in a pub and also sung in a big venue, then it’s a really good song. It’s a very singalong album.” says Shane Filan.
If you’ve sold 50 million albums, had 14 No 1 singles and been a multi-platinum pop star for well over a decade, what do you do? If you’re Shane Filan, you forget about the gold discs and start all over again.

When Shane’s old band Westlife amicably ended in 2012, he knew he wanted to go solo – but he wasn’t sure if he knew how to do it. “All my life, I’ve said I’d love to keep singing for as long as I can,” he says. “But when Westlife split, I thought ‘Oh, okay! I’m going to have to do it on my own.’ To be honest, it was something I was never looking forward to. I wasn’t comfortable with the idea of being solo, but I was 32 when we ended and I didn’t want to retire. I want to sing for a living and I’m lucky I’ve got another chance to do that.”

For six months, Shane didn’t do anything. He had well-documented financi…

One of GMA-7's princesses and the star of successful shows, Alakdana, One True Love and Mundo Mo'y Akin, Louise Delos Reyes, certainly has a lot to be thankful for. At the age of 21, she feels so blessed and contented at what she has in her life now.
