  • A teary eyed Piolo Pascual reaffirmed his love for girlfriend KC Concepcion in front of an appreciative crowd during his Valentine’s concert.

    In the “Piolo Meets the Maestro” concert at the PICC last February 14 with topnotch composer and arranger Ryan Cayabyab, Piolo could not help but express his sincerest gratitude to KC who, he said, showed him the “true meaning of love.”

    While singing the song "Ikaw ang Pangarap" (theme song of of the ABS-CBN fantasy series "Lobo"), Piolo went down the stage, approached KC and after the song, the couple hugged each other tight. He then went back up the stage and said, "When I was thinking about the lyrics of that song, I realized there's just one dream that I've always wanted to fulfill: to be with that special someone. I've always been single most of my life. I'm giving love a chance. I've always been a private person. My admission on ‘The Buzz’ was nerve-wracking. I had to stand up for somebody... somebody who's really...," Piolo, in tears, then

  • Valentine's Day is also Kris Aquino's birthday. So how did the 'Queen of All Media' celebrate her special day?

    According to her recent tweets, the celebration started days before her actual birthday. On February 12, Kris went to Camiling, Tarlac for her medical mission and gift giving activities. Saturday was spent with close friends and family; a private gathering where guests heard mass and prayed with her. She spent Sunday with her sons Joshua, Bimby and estranged husband James Yap, who Kris revealed gave her a "lovely bracelet and a heartwarming card."

    However, Kris made a special appeal. In a taped interview with "SNN," Kris asked the public to spare her from the intrigues once people see her guests during the celebration last Saturday in media reports.

    "Kung sino po ang mapapanood niyo na kasama naming nagdarasal, gusto [nila] makadasal ang pamilya ko, wag niyo po bigyan ng kulay o intriga. Kaibigan ko po ang mga nandoon." Kris probably was referring to Makati City Mayor Junjun

  • Vic Sotto will still be doing a movie with ABS-CBN's film arm, Star Cinema. Despite the cancellation of his supposed movie with Toni Gonzaga, a new movie with another Kapamilya A-list actress Bea Alonzo is now in progress.

    In a taped interview with ABS-CBN's "SNN" on Monday, Vic revealed that Star Cinema gave him an offer too good to resist.

    "They [Star Cinema] offered a very nice project. Hindi ako nahirapang magdesisyon. Readily I accepted kasi I really like the project. Medyo matagal-tagal na rin ako hindi nakapagtrabaho sa Star Cinema so it's nice to be back," said Vic.

    Bea on the other hand feels so blessed to be working with the veteran actor which is a dream come true for the Kapamilya actress.

    "Lahat na ng mga pangarap kong makatrabaho ay nakakatrabaho ko. Napaka swerte ko. It's an honor na makatrabaho ko siya," Bea expressed.

    The untitled movie is said to star other ABS-CBN talents like Pokwang and child wonders Zaijan Jaranilla and Xyriel Manabat.

  • Hayden Kho said he did not owe Sharon Cuneta any apology for his January 28 post on Twitter, which he maintained was not directed at her.

    Hayden tweeted: "There's a billboard ad in Edsa developed by advertisers who think consumers are stupid. Guess."  People immediately associated the message to Sharon’s Marie France Bodyline billboard ad, which showed before and after pictures of Sharon losing weight.

    While Hayden had already denied in a succeeding post that his controversial tweet was intended for Sharon, he asserted his claim further in an appearance on TV5’s “Paparazzi,” wherein he subbed for a vacationing Mo Twister on Sunday, February 13.  He responded to Sharon’s statements on ABS-CBN’s “The Buzz” the same day insisting that Hayden's tweet was really intended for her and not for anybody else.

    "Number one, wala po akong relationship kay Ms. Sharon Cuneta. There was one time na nag-guest ako sa show niya. That's all,” Hayden said.

  • Sharon Cuneta addressed the controversial issue regarding her Marie France Bodyline billboards and explained why she thinks she is really the subject of Hayden Kho's tweet.

    In her interview with ABS-CBN's "The Buzz" on Sunday, February 13, Sharon explained why she had to defend herself against the negative issues surrounding her endorsement of the weight loss specialty clinic.

    On January 28, Hayden Kho tweeted: "There's a billboard ad in Edsa developed by advertisers who think consumers are stupid. Guess." Immediately, people attributed the controversial statement to the Megastar's billboards along EDSA. When news about the tweet reached Sharon, it irked her so much that she believed it was a personal attack against her credibility and integrity as an actress and endorser.

    "Para namang how unfair to say na parang kasi sa akin kaya masakit, kinukwestiyon mo hindi lang yung hitsura ko, yung hitsura ko okay lang eh pero yung kredibilidad integridad ko parang ang sakit naman nun. Do you even

  • ABS-CBN’s daily youth oriented show, "Shoutout," has bid farewell.

    After ABS-CBN management gave the show mainstays, particularly the young newcomers in the network’s talent roster, an ultimatum to improve their performances, it has finally decided to cancel the show.

    Last month, the “Shoutout” teens were given one last chance to prove their mettle but it was apparent that they did not measure up to the network’s expectations. “Shoutout’s” February 11 episode was its last.

    "Yes... Last episode was yesterday (Friday)," Tracy Manlangit of ABS-CBN talent arm Star Magic confirmed to Yahoo! Southeast Asia.

    During the January 25 episode of “Shoutout,” Linggit Tan, ABS-CBN Senior Vice President for TV Entertainment, aired the management's decision to give the teens one more month to improve their craft otherwise, the show will be cut short. But, it turns out, only two weeks were necessary for management to decide the show’s fate.

  • Iya Villania is one of the newest hosts of ABS-CBN's reformatted early morning show, “Umagang Kay Ganda.” But how does her boyfriend Drew Arellano feel?

    Drew is a longtime host of “Umagang Kay Ganda’s” rival morning show on GMA-7, “Unang Hirit.”

    "He was excited for me. Kasi my first day in college was his first day in ‘Unang Hirit’ and he's still there. Of course what's keeping him there is the fact that he may be under contract but there's obviously joy in what he's doing so na-excite siya for me to experience that also. At saka gusto niya maging time conscious ako," Iya told reporters during a press conference on Friday, February 11 at the 9501 Restaurant in Quezon City.

    When asked if the two ever fight or gauge which is the better show, Iya had this to say:

    "Hindi of course not. Kasi alam naman niya talagang magaling kami. [laughs] Hindi... We don'talk about it. He just told me that I have to be on the edge and to always be ready for whatever happens. Walang problema sa amin ni Drew. He

  • During the 2010 Presidential campaign, reports claim that Edu Manzano and Pinky Webb broke up to allow the actor-politician to focus on this bid for the vice presidency as running mate of then administration bet Gilbert Teodoro. But less than a year later, Pinky met with some members of the press and reluctantly answered questions about her relationship with Edu.

    "Basta magkaibigan pa rin kami. I don't think that will ever change," Pinky said.

    "Edu is and will always be important and a part of my life," the ABS-CBN news anchor and host of "Umagang Kay Ganda" added.

    When asked to confirm rumors that she and Edu had already tied the knot, Pinky avoided the question and asked to spare her personal life instead.

    "Well everyone knows what's happened. Yung personal na nangyari sa buhay ko at sa pamilya ko is out. I don't really talk about it because sa ganun kasi I don't want to be in the news and I hope that doesn't sound bad. Ayoko kasi palakihin pa yung sinasabi na ganito kayong dalawa o
