New Home Network for Janine Gutierrez

11:46:00 PM

New year, new beginning. A new environment and a new home. 

Yes, last January 15, 2021, Janine Gutierrez, an award-winning actress is now officially a Kapamilya after she signed a contract with ABS-CBN. Present together during the signing were Janine, ABS-CBN group financial officer Rick Tan, chief operating officer of broadcast and head of Creative Programs, Inc. Cory Vidanes, president and CEO Carlo Katigbak, chairman Mark Lopez, Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal, and her manager Leo Dominguez.

We all know that this beautiful and talented actress has already won different awards like Gawad Urian Awards and Urduja Heritage Film Awards for her role in Babae at Baril. So, many would definitely ask "why?" Well, just like what she said in some of the already recorded interviews, "New Year, new home." This is probably a straightforward thought of realization during the days of quarantine. We all need to have a fresh new environment aside from the four corners of our house but in Janine's case, it's probably the opportunity to work with other people.  

Being officially welcomed as Kapamilya, Janine will join the musical variety show "ASAP' as a host, and is set for a teleserye under Dreamscape entertainment and a movie produced by Star cinema.  So in the simpler term, we will be seeing more of this beautiful and talented lady on different ABS CBN platforms.

Kisses Delavin Much Better To Go Solo

8:51:00 AM

One of the beautiful products of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB), Kisses Delavin, has created a name. We have seen her become herself and truthful with her actions inside the PBB house. It was a few years ago when she was still on her sweet sixteen. It seems that time does fly so fast because just recently, Kisses celebrated her 21st birthday. So it was five years have passed since she started with her showbiz career.

The Love Teams
Right after PBB and with the thought that their partnership clicked to the masses, the KissMarc Love Team was born - Kisses Delavin and Marco Gallo. It was sweet at first, but later on, a break up happens because of some misunderstanding and issues.

After KissMarc, another partnership was born, the DonKiss - Donny Pangilinan and Kisses Delavin. It was the time when Vice Ganda included the couple in the movie for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). Unfortunately, just like the previous partner, they went on their separate ways. It's another issue about her partner.

Just right before the outbreak of the COVID-19, McCoy De Leon was probably the next in line with her. Though, they do have some good chemistry on cam and off cam. But the problem was, she ended her contract with the Kapamilya network, so the probability of McCoy and Kisses is already 50/50.

The Probable Reasons
With her five years of being in the showbiz industry, it seems that Kisses is having problems with her partners. In five years, she already lost two love teams. Why is it so? Well, there are quite a few probable reasons that we found but no conformity of the subject.
  • Kisses Delavin, is an NBSB (as what we have heard from previous interviews), so the tendency to act and be sweet with her partner is probably unusual to her, which gives a different signal to her partner.
  • Being the only daughter and probably born of the traditional Pinoy family made her mindful of the simple courtesy and etiquette that are maybe different from her partners.
  • Shes too straight and vocal about her thoughts and feelings.
So these are only speculations that may or may not be accurate at all. Knowing that Kisses is a promising actress, staying in a love team is probably not for her. She can do more with her showbiz career without a love team.

Glaiza de Castro Brings You Her Latest Single "Kapalaran"

10:43:00 AM

One of the interesting and beautiful actress in the Kapuso Network, the kontrabida in most drama and fantaserye of the Kapuso Network, and an award-winning actress, Glaiza de Castro, once again brings her soul to her first love, which is singing. After the successful release of her album "Magandang Simulain" in 2017, with songs that gained more than a thousand streams on Spotify, comes with another inspiring single "Kapalaran". The new song, "Kapalaran" is released under  PolyEast Records.

According to Glaiza, the creation of the song which started when her friend  Alwyn Uytingco sent her some parts of the songs about his Japan trip. This inspired her to write and complete the song “Kapalaran”. She wrote the lyrics and melody for the song with a story on her mind.

Her latest single tells about a persons "kapalaran" or destiny. Surprisingly her music is somewhat shares a story about her as she pursue her first love, which is singing. During the media conference held in PolyEast Record she disclosed that she'll be taking some time from acting and will pursue her love for music as she goes to London to learn more about it. It is certificate course where she can do more once she finished it.

Ironically most artist or musicians study the art first before working but for Glaiza's part it's the other way around. She'll be living alone and learning during her stay in London.

“We all have gifts or skills or talents and whatever it is that you feel you like to do, yun ang kapalaran mo”, Glaiza said as she wants to encourage her listeners not to be pressured to what the society tells or dictates you to feel, keep pushing to what you want because whatever it is, it is your destiny.

Aside from its unique melody and range, adding spice to the music is singer/songwriter and spoken word artist Juan Miguel Severo’s spoken verse-- making it more soulful and heartfelt. Glaiza has always admired Juan Miguel for his words, sincerity, and power to communicate.

"Perfect siya sa song kasi I wanted to convey a strong message and it's impossible not to listen to him when he says something,” Glaiza added.

The lyrics and melody of “Kapalaran” that Glaiza did, plus the inspiring personal experience of Alwyn Uytingco shared and the unique vibe arrangement that Axel Fernandez it all made it all different and perfect. Listen to the new single “Kapalaran” on Spotify. For updates on Glaiza De Castro and other PolyEast artists, you can follow PolyEast Records on social media.

5 Characters of ABAY BABES

10:43:00 PM

Sexy, beautiful and alluring actresses ensembles the casts of ABAY BABES. This is VIVA Films' latest offering to movie goers this September. It's time to feast your eyes as the movie brings together Cristine Reyes, Kylie Verzosa, Nathalie Hart, Meg Imperial, and Roxanne Barcelo, who are all oozing with sexiness and pizzazz. Discover these 5 characters of ABAY Babes.

Along with the visual treat is a story that has a right mix of fun and intrigue to captivate all audiences.

Many years after high school, Emerald, Ruby, Perla, and Goldie (considered the Bicol “It Girls” of their batch) are reunited for the latter’s upcoming wedding. Joining them is Jade, Goldie’s friend from America. Everyone is excited about this get-together, but somehow, Goldie’s friends are finding it hard to believe that she is going to be the first to fulfill their dream of getting married, considering that she is the least attractive among them.

Emerald, Ruby and Perla secretly joke that Goldie might just be making this all up. And when they can’t see any videos or pictures of the groom, Zack, the three start to take their joke seriously. As if their skepticism is not enough, their past issues against one another are also reopened. At a time when friendship and love are supposed to be celebrated, will doubt and rivalry get the better of them?

Playing the role of Emerald is Nathalie Hart who entered showbiz in 2008 through ABS-CBN’s Star Magic. In May 2018, she was the cover of the final print issue of FHM. Emerald has the alias “Bicol Express” because, according to her, she is the hottest among her friends. She works as a commercial model.

Ruby, the class topnotcher back in high school and is now a doctor, is played by Cristine Reyes. She is called “Pili Nuts” because, ultimately, guys would choose her beauty over all others. (Pili is the Tagalog for choose.) Cristine shared in an interview that she enjoyed jamming with the girls between takes. Her last film was a family drama, making this comedy film really fun to do.

Perla, who is called “Mt. Mayon” because of its perfect shape, just like her figure, is played by Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa. She has appeared in the movies “Ang Panday” and “Kasal”, but this is her first leading role. “I have this desire to be really good at something,” Kylie once said in an interview. “I want to be good at acting, not being an artista.”

Goldie, the class clown in the movie, is played by Roxanne Barcelo who is also the funniest one in the cast. Goldie is given the moniker, “Abaca” (fiber, in English), because she is the toughest of them all. In real life, Roxanne has both the toughness and the talents (like singing and hosting) that are necessary to last in the world of show business.

Jade, the videographer who will document the girls’ road trip to the wedding venue, is played by Meg Imperial. A recent IG post of Meg is captioned “Once you become fearless, life becomes limitless.” Indeed, Meg’s career is flourishing because she is open to doing different roles.

ABAY BABES also stars Tom Rodriguez, Marco Gumabao, Mark Bautista, Candy Pangilinan and many more. Directed by Don Cuaresma, the movie will open on September 19 in cinemas nationwide. From VIVA Films.

Bea Binene's Debut Album Launch

9:29:00 AM

Kwento Ni Toto was lucky to be invited in Bea Binene's Debut Album launched.  This event was covered by Angelyn Demo, one of our correspondent, who was enthusiastic enough to tell her story about this launch.  Here's her cover story.

Since the Kwento Ni Toto guy wasn't around the Metro during this launched I was tasked to cover this story.  No offence but I barely know Bea Binene and I first saw her in person during one of Bum's Fashion Show that's why I got curious as well when this task was given to me.  At least this time I would be able to know her much better.

There’s Something with Karylle’s Smile

Karylle is also nominated in the Best Actress category at the Monte Carlo Festivals. She recounts, “I didn't really want to believe it, since I didn't hear from our TKM group.

A Fire in the Soul: A Cantata In Memory of De La Salle Brothers

9:31:00 AM

When in high school until college I was a member of our church choir and singing in a cantata are one of my favorites.  Not a very good singer but I can say I could at least follow the notes and hit it right.  So, knowing this cantata will be restage by DLSU I was hoping that I could watch it performed by great artist.

A Fire in the Soul: A Cantata is a story about the Lasallian mission in Southeast Asia, it is said to be a crucial event in its history.  It was February 12, 1945, American forces bombarded the City of Manila that forced a group of Japanese soldiers to enter De La Salle College campus on Taft Avenue.   People who lived there were attacked, twenty-four men, women, and children, and 16 La Salle brothers died in that massacre.  Perhaps only few people knows about it.

This is the result of war, they turn human into monsters but also forges heroes out of its flames. This story is shared and told to honor their memory, their service to humanity, and to remember them eternally.

This cantata is created by Gabby Fernandez and directed by Peque Gallaga, it is one of the highlights of the centennial celebration of De La Salle University (DLSU) in the Philippines. Vicente Garcia Groyon wrote the libretto and Von de Guzman composed the music.

A Fire in the Soul: A Cantata will have two performances only: February 26 (Sunday - Matinee) at 3pm and February 27 (Monday - Gala Night) at 8pm. Both shows will be held at Teresa Yuchengco Auditorium at the 7th Floor of Don Enrique T. Yuchengco Hall of DLSU.

The cast includes Michael de Mesa (Br. Egbert), Franco Laurel (Br. Antonius), Al Gatmaitan (Br. Mutwald), Jonel Mojica (Br. Friedbert), Miguel Castro (Br. Arkadius), Floyd Tena (Br. Athanasius), and Naomi Sison (Alma Mater).

Also, joining them are Onyl Torres (Japanese Captain), Nazer Salcedo (Japanese Soldier 1), Gary Fabricante (Japanese Soldier 2), and John Gilbert Arceo (Japanese Soldier 3).

Narrators are Jaime Fabregas, Ricky Gallaga, Conchita Castillo, Dado Jose, Tanya Lopez, and Louie Zabaljauregi.

Aside from known actors and actresses different La Salle singing groups were also featured in this cantata.  They are De La Salle Inner Soul, De La Salle-Zobel Chorale, La Salle Centennial Orchestra, La Salle Centennial Chorus. Some kids of La Salle-Greenhills are also part of the show.

Joining the Production and the Artistic Team are Mio Infante (Production Design), Dong Calingacion (Technical and Lighting Director), GA Fallarme (Projection Design), Br. Bernard S. Oca, FSC (Executive Producer), and Lore Reyes (Line Producer).
