But before this, the three momshies reminisced some memorable moments they shared in the last five years.

So, what do you think of Maymay Entrata's performance in her first concert?

“PBB CONNECT’S” KODREA AND HAIRON Joins Squad Plus

8:55:00 PM

 

An addition to the growing members of the family, the Squad Plus. The mates are just getting bigger. 
“Pinoy Big Brother Connect” alumni Andi Abaya, Kobie Brown, Haira Palaguitto, and Kyron Aguilera know fighting for their dreams doesn’t begin and stop with just their stint as housemates. After showcasing their personality and character in the country’s most famous house, the quartet has joined The Squad Plus, Dreamscape Entertainment’s teen barkada, to further develop their talents as they wait for their next big projects in showbiz.

Get to know the newly launched squadmates here:



1) Andi Abaya
“PBB Connect” 2nd Big Placer Andi Abaya has been a commercial model since she was 13 and has nurtured a passion for performing since she took acting workshops in grade school. Now 19, she has developed more talents that make her showbiz-ready, including dancing, singing, playing guitar, and acting.

As a former competitive cheerleader, Andi knows the value of taking big risks and the determination to dream even bigger. In “PBB,” she proved that confidence could be an asset. As she treads the next step in her career, this multi-talented girl-next-door knows and believes she is here to stay.


 
2) Kobie Brown
“PBB Connect’s” “charming striker” and 3rd Big Placer, Kobie Brown is equally passionate about sports and showbiz. His dreams to play football, however, will have to take a back seat while he explores a career in acting and music (Kobie has a soulful singing voice. In fact, his fans have been itching for him to perform on “ASAP”).

Kobie’s love for music started when he was a kid, when he would copy his idol Michael Jackson’s moves and would often be asked to sing at family dinners. He has also found a newfound passion for mixing songs after he learned to DJ in quarantine. Armed with lessons from Big Brother and his football playing days, this half-British but 100% Pinoy-at-heart is also preparing for more projects by learning to speak Tagalog fluently.


 
3) Kyron Aguilera
Take a look at Kyron Aguilera’s Tiktok page and YouTube vlogs and you wouldn’t think he went through depression and used to suffer from an extreme case of shyness. Becoming a competitive cyclist, though, allowed him to come out of his shell and explore his strengths.

In “PBB Otso,” Kyron learned to become independent and rely on himself to make life-changing decisions. After he got evicted, his supporters’ love and encouraging words made him realize his potential to pursue his dreams, giving him the reassurance to face the next chapter of his showbiz journey.



4) Hyra Palaguitto
Then “PBB Otso’s” youngest housemate at 16, Hyra Palaguitto has dreamed about appearing on TV since she was a kid. Since then, that goal has been her North Star and has given her the faith and focus to excel in beauty pageants, spoken work contests, and debate competitions.

Haira understands the hard work that goes into having a successful showbiz career. Right now, her livestreaming hobby has also allowed her to enhance her talent for improvisation and way with words.

Get to know Andi, Kobie, Kyron, and Haira by liking the videos and subscribing to The Squad Plus’ YouTube channel (YouTube.com/TheSquadPlus), which regularly uploads vlogs and games featuring all the squadmates. With three million subscribers and 274 million views, The Squad Plus is one of ABS-CBN’s most subscribed and most followed channels on the video-streaming platform.

While Anji failed to make it to “Idol’s” live shows, she has since then made one of her biggest dreams come by becoming part of “ASAP’s” new breed of singers and showcasing her acting skills in iWantTFC’s “Unloving U,” for which she recorded the song “Keeps on Coming Back.” Things are definitely looking bright for this Siargao native, who is open to doing more acting projects in the future.

Ms. Kris Aquino, Single Mom, and An Inspiration

10:50:00 PM

 

A few weeks ago, Ms. Kris Aquino was one of the highlights of news and stories on the net. One, because she defended her children from malicious comments, and two is her action towards that specific issue. It's not easy being a mom, and it's not easy to take on hateful comments, especially if the remarks are towards her beloved children.

Last April 9, Araw ng Kagitingan, Ms. Kris released a video on her Social Media account bravely expressed her feelings being a mom, the nurturer, and the provider for her family, and her actions of facing the next tomorrow of her life. Just like the rainbow that brings new hope for the coming days.

Probably most of us have known Ms. Kris Aquino from her younger days. We have seen her on TV shows, movies, and even talk shows. She is a very unusual and expressive celebrity who has created a name out of being Kris. Yes, she speaks differently, and she has a list of issues in her past, but now is different. Her name talks, but her being a mom inspires louder. The strength of a single mom flows in her words. speaks


 
Naturally, moms are protective of their children, and Ms. Kris is one good example of a mother shielding her offsprings from things that can relatively harm them. Her kids are her source of happiness, her 'happy pill,' the joy and light, even when she faces the darkest moments of her life. You can see that it reflects through her sons and how Ms. Kris treats them and care for them. She's frank, calm, and loved by her sons. cool

Her situation is not unusual because I know some single moms who strive and work hard for their families. Most especially the ones who have kids with special needs. The sacrifices they did just like Ms. Kris, who endures everything. I can say that I can relate too because my wife gave way not to work anymore to take care of our kids, especially the little one with mild ADHD.


 

I remember Ms. Kris being the Queen of All Media, and up to now, she still is, but probably taking that title a notch higher because she's now taking the wave of Social Media. Still relevant, not only to moms but also to individuals who follow her. You can always look at the comments and praises of the netizens. She inspires even more.

Where does Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson Love Begins?

2:01:00 AM

 

Finally, the revelation! Yes, after more than a year of intrigues and speculations, the truth has now come out. Is it because of the birthday, or they just want to admit it? It's hard to hide secrets, and eventually, time will have its ways to spill it out in the open.

It is just my wildest thought about what did they answered during the press conference held last 2019 in their movie 'Between Maybes?' Some answers are a bit double-sided in their meaning, and now it somehow created a bright picture of what they are saying at that time. So, if you want to know what it is about, you can watch the video below, especially the part where they answer the question about choosing 'Love or Career.'



Another video that somehow spiels some bits of intriguing clues. Watch the whole video.



So, what do you think? Does the relationship started here or not?

Continuously giving their trust and love for ABS-CBN, these actors remain strong as Kapamilya stars Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber, Francine Diaz, Donny Pangilinan, Arjo Atayde, and Gary Valenciano, who renewed their contact with the network that they all call home.

ABS-CBN executives warmly welcomed each of the six stars who still chose to be with ABS-CBN at the “Kapamilya Strong” special contract signing event and media conference on Friday (February 26).

First to sign a new contract was Maymay whose eyes were sparkling with joy.

“Mahalaga sa akin ang pagiging Kapamilya dahil dito ako nagsimula. Para sila ang naging tulay ng mga pangarap ko. Dito ko nahanap ang purpose ko,” Maymay, who was last seen in the digital romcom movie “Princess DayaReese,” shared. Maymay will continue to be part of “ASAP Natin ‘To” and “iWant ASAP.”



Meanwhile, Maymay’s loveteam partner, Edward, is ready to take more risks this 2021. According to the host of the MYX online show “Kwentong Barber” on Kumu, “kailangan kong sumugal ng konti ngayong taon. To jump, to take risks. I’ll take a chance. I’ll train, not try.”

As for Francine Diaz, she is now busy preparing for her comeback in the much-awaited biggest inspirational teleserye, “Huwag Kang Mangamba” with the Gold Squad.

“Inaaral ko ang mga eksena, lalo na po ‘yung scenes na kasama ako. Pero kinakabahan din po ako kasi kailangan marami kaming mabigay na message at lessons sa mga Kapamilya natin,” Francine explained.

One of the stars who also marked a career milestone with ABS-CBN was Donny Pangilinan who will be seen next on the upcoming iWantTFC series, “He’s Into Her,” opposite Belle Mariano.

“I'm glad to be here in my roots. Thank you so much ABS-CBN for giving me wings to fly as well,” Donny added.

2020’s Asian Academy Creative Awards Best Actor Arjo Atayde also inked a new contract with ABS-CBN and teased that he is already working on a new project for the Kapamilya network.

Although Arjo was tightlipped about the project, he said that he’s excited to work again. He also became emotional while expressing his gratitude to the network.



“It [ABS-CBN] feels like home. For a lot of reasons they take care of us. They give us the projects we deserve, as long as we work hard for it. I just love being a Kapamilya and I will stay here no matter what,” Arjo said who also received a special video message from girlfriend Maine Mendoza and his co-star in "The General's Daughter," the Diamond Star, Maricel Soriano.

One of the pillars of OPM, Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano, was also filled with gratitude as he remains a Kapamilya. According to Gary V, who will still be seen every Sunday on “ASAP Natin ‘To,” he and his co-artists will continue to spread happiness and inspiration.

“What do I hope for this 2021? Just for us to continue to inspire and encourage so many people out there through our music, stories, dance. Everything,” he said.

Like Arjo, the rest of the stars also received special video messages. Maymay’s mother in Japan greeted her, while Edward got a message from a charity organization in Thailand called Friends of Thai Daughters. Meanwhile, Belle Mariano greeted Donny, and finally, Gary V’s granddaughter, Leia, gave a short, but adorable greeting.



Meanwhile, before the “Kapamilya Strong” event started, it already became a hot topic on Twitter, with multiple trending topics, including #KapamilyaStrong, #MayWardSolidKapamilya, and #DonnySolidKapamilya, among others.

Among the ABS-CBN executives present were chairman Mark Lopez, president and CEO Carlo Katigbak, COO of broadcast Cory Vidanes, head of entertainment production and head of Star Magic Laurenti Dyogi, managing director of ABS-CBN Film Productions Olivia Lamasan, and head of finance, Rick Tan.
