Press Release:

THREE of today’s hottest and busiest stars – Anne Curtis, Derek Ramsay and Andi Eigenmann – figure in a sizzling, dramatic tale of love, lust and deceit in Viva Films’ upcoming release, “A Secret Affair”. The movie, showing on October 24, is the highly anticipated follow-up to last year's blockbuster "No Other Woman", which still stands as the highest grossing Filipino dramatic movie of all time.

That film established the tandem of Anne and Derek as a bankable movie pair. "A Secret Affair" reunites the two stars, but this time as the couple whose relationship is seriously challenged with the intrusion of a third party, played by Andi.




















The movie has all the elements that made “No Other Woman” such a phenomenon---a great-looking cast, an engaging story, memorable dialogue peppered with quotable quotes, beautiful locations, and the trademark gloss of classic VIVA melodramas. But it's even sexier and more stylish, with more lavish sets and eye-popping production values. It's also bigger in scope as it touches on family and friendship.


Both Anne and Andi play strong, feisty characters but with different sensibilities molded by their family backgrounds and situations. The movie is also even more contemporary, as it shows how relationships are shaped by new media these days.

"A Secret Affair" promises to cement Anne's reputation as one of the very best actresses of the new generation, as well as Derek's image as today's top sexy actor. The movie also heralds the arrival of Andi as a new movie drama princess.


Directed by teleserye veteran Nuel Crisostomo Naval from a story and screenplay by award-winning writer Mel Mendoza-del Rosario, “A Secret Affair” boasts a formidable supporting cast led by acclaimed veterans Jaclyn Jose, Joel Torre, and Jackie Lou Blanco. It also features Say Alonzo, IC Mendoza, Shy Carlos, Petra Mahalimuyak, and Ge-Ann Abraham.

Unilever together with Unicef, Department of Education (DepEd) and Department of Social Welfare and Employment (DSWD) launched the Global Handwashing Day.

This project aims to teach kids all over the country on proper hand washing since most bacteria that causes sickness are usually because of dirty hands. Imagine, just for teaching a kid to wash their hands properly can save a life, and if this will be done as a habit we could actually save millions of kids all over the country.

Unilever has their product Vaseline liquid soap with anti bacterial formula to help us out in this advocacy and because we aim to teach kids, they got Jillian Ward, the 7 year old cute girl to be a good example for the children.

This project will not only be for the National Capital Region, they aim to cover the country especially those in the provinces, Vaseline will also be distributed at these areas so they can truly practice clean hands all the time.

So join the "Pledge Hands to Save Lives" campaign from Vaseline and Unilever. A simple washing of hands would help save a life.

One of the most much awaited teleserye ended it's pilot week tonight. Although I was one of those who were given the opportunity to watch the advance screening, I still made sure to catch it on tv, and now, everyone is excited for what will happen next week since the scenes will then include the main casts of the teleserye.

Ina Kapatid Anak yet again showcases a great and refreshing story that involves the relationships of family, from being grandparents, parents, siblings and children. People will once again have a very good reason to come home early and bond with their families while watching this teleserye.

Behind the story is a star studded casts starting with Mr. Eddie Gutierrez, Mr. Ronaldo Valdez and Ms Pilar Pilapil, the grandparents role.Then Mr. Ariel Rivera, Ms. Janice de Belen, and Ms. Cherry Pie Picache, the parents and the sisters part. And of course the much awaited children, Xian Lim, Kim Chiu, Enchong Dee and Maja Salvador.

Ina Kapatid Anak airs on Primetime Bida after Walang Hanggan, weeknights.

Since I am not sleepy yet, and my energy is still on a high from the recently concluded X-Factor Grand Finals Night, allow me to share how the night went during this Big event.

The X-Factor Philippines Grand Finals Night was a blast. The show opened with Ms. Lanie Misalucha singing with the grand finalists Daddy's Home, Gab Maturan and KZ Tandingan, Ms. Lanie is back and for sure we'll get to see her more often in the next few days, hmm i hope she'll have a mini concert where we can get to be invited because i super adore her singing prowess.

First in line for their final performance is from Mr. Gary Valenciano's team, Daddy's Home singing an inspirational song entitled "Gaya ng Dati" this was their personal pick since they haven't sung anything like this before and surely it was the perfect one for them. I got goosebumps all over while listening and feeling their rendetion. Good job Daddy's Home. Vote for them XF DAD

Next up is from Mr. Martin Nieveras team. Gab Maturan, the young man who, Judge Pelita describes as the dark horse of the competition. Gab has never been included in the bottom two and has constantly been questioned if he deserves to be on the top 3. Well tonight, he stole the stage, the show and the hearts of the people. Gab performed "I Believe" and instantly people believed in him. To Vote XF GAB

Last but not the least is KZ Tandingan the only lady left standing. Her voice conquered everyone with the song "Superstar" Indeed, her voice is one of a kind and honestly her height, makes me want to question where is her voice coming from? To Vote XF KZ

Ms. Vina Morales was one of the special guests for the night and may I just say, from her production number, it seems she hasn't aged a bit and she is still the Vina Morales in terms of her energy and performance level. Way to go! Super Hot!

And when everyone thought that the night is over, just wait, there's more. Daddy's Home performed "Through the Fire" with no less than the Soul Siren Nina. Superb! Then KZ's time with the legend Mr. Rico J Puno singing "Memories" it was oh so heart warming. Finally Gab with oh my gosh! Bamboo, they had ladies screaming their hearts out with "Man that can't be moved" It was certainly one Big Finale for the X-Factor Philippines.

Tonight your votes will decide who will be The First X-Factor Philippines Champion

Update:

The announcement:

Third Place goes to:
Daddy's Home

Second Place:
Gab Maturan

and the first X-Factor Philippines Grand Champion is no other than...

KZ TANDINGAN


Congratulations to everyone! X-Factor Philipines Staff and Crew Kudos to you all!

Was it 25 years ago that we watched in awe and purely loved this adorable cute little girl doing her famous duck dance in Eat Bulaga? The answer is of course yes it was really her, how time flies so fast that now she's all grown up, doing her own thing, singing her heart out and having this big concert at the Smart Araneta in celebration of her 25 years in the industry.

Yes the baby is now all grown up and her staying power is so strong that she had the Araneta jampacked up until the general admission seats. Aiza Seguerra's Bente Singko concert was a huge success. It was one concert people didn't want to miss since Aiza is the youngest to celebrate this achievement in the showbiz industry.

For her, it was a moment she wants to share with her family, friends and fans. Imagine the whole of Araneta singing to every song she rendered and was also excited for her special guests for the night. Famous personalities in the industry were there to greet and support our dear Aiza. To name a few we have: The Company, they did a few 80's dance hits, Gary Valenciano and Martin Nievera did a back to back number, Gloc-9 did his rap stint, and of course Bossing Vic Sotto had a heart warming number with Aiza that brought tears to almost everyone watching.

Pictures of Aiza were also flashed by the LED screen making the audience reminisce her life in the showbiz world, she also did a song of Ms. Sharon Cuneta who is apparently watching the concert and was asked by production if she could join Aiza up on the stage and she immediately agreed, that moment made the whole Smart Araneta scream for that unforgettable scene. It was a great night of music that I will never forget.

Aiza Seguerra, the name that everyone still remembers even after 25 years, may God Bless her talent and may she continue inspiring people through her songs. Cheers to the next 25 years :-)
