Judy Ann Santos' Plays An Intriguing Role in Her Comeback Teleserye "Starla", Teaches About Love For Family and Forgiveness

6:50:00 PM
When was the last time we saw Judy Ann Santos lead in a teleserye? Well, I'm not sure but what I remember is the "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala".  So comment if I'm wrong and we will correct this. But so much with her past teleseryes because this year Judy Ann's much-awaited TV comeback is a bit intriguing and because of this time, Judy Ann plays the antagonist, the contrabida.

The much-awaited television comeback of Judy Ann Santos brings another heart-tugging story about hope, love for family, forgiveness, and granting the heart’s deepest wishes in the primetime teleserye “Starla,” which premieres on October 7.

The series follows a father-daughter relationship and a mission to grant people’s wishes – a perfect and timely present for viewers of all ages this Christmas season from Dreamscape Entertainment, which created hit Kapamilya teleseryes filled with values and inspiration such as “May Bukas Pa,” “100 Days to Heaven,” “Honesto,” “Nathaniel,” and “My Dear Heart.”

Joining Juday in “Starla” are Joel Torre, Enzo Pelojero, Jana Agoncillo, Meryl Soriano, Joem Bascon, and Raymart Santiago, with the special participation of Tirso Cruz III and Charo Santos. In “Starla,” Judy Ann is the ruthless Teresa, a successful lawyer who is dedicated to seeking revenge on her despised hometown Baryo Maulap, which she claims is a symbol of her defeat.

Her plans are hindered by her estranged father Greggy (Joel) and his adopted son Buboy (Enzo), after one fateful night, Buboy witnesses a dance of fireflies that is said to bring luck wherever they land. Buboy manages to catch what he thinks is a firefly, named Starla (Jana), who happens to be one of the millions of playful wishing stars from the sky.

Together, Buboy and Starla slowly heal the town by granting wishes, but are fixated on Mang Greggy, whose deepest wish is to reconcile with her now-hostile daughter Teresa.

In truth, Teresa blames her father for abandoning her and the townspeople for not helping her when she and her mother were in dire need—resulting in her mother’s painful demise.

Will Teresa finally get the vengeance that she wants, or does her heart desire something else? Will Buboy and Starla help Greggy and Teresa feel the warmth of home again?

"Starla" is written by Dindo Perez, and directed by Onat Diaz, Darnel Villaflor, and Jerome Pobocan. Its cast members also include Grae Fernandez, Chantal Videla, Janus del Prado, Kathleen Hermosa, Anna Luna, Jordan Herrera, Simon Ibarra, Raikko Matteo, Chunsa Jeung, Myel de Leon, Heaven Peralejo, and many more.

Don’t miss “Starla" on Primetime Bida beginning October 7 (Monday) on ABS-CBN. For updates follow, ABS-CBN PR on Facebook (, Twitter (@abscbnpr), and Instagram (@abscbnpr).

A staunch believer in violence, Tiago intends to kill thousands of innocent lives to fulfill his long-time dream of destroying the army and the government and leading the country. With a detailed and deadly strategy to achieve this, he uses his mole Cinco (Mercedes Cabral), who poses as an aspiring senate president who detests terrorists.

But time is running out for Rhian, Franco (Paulo Avelino), and her father Marcial (Albert Martinez), who are currently at large and being hunted by the authorities.

While Corazon (Eula Valdez) is worrying about the safety of her husband and daughter, Amelia (Janice De Belen) has resolutely decided to leave Tiago to get away and start a new life with their son.

Will Rhian succeed in her mission to end Tiago and clear her name?

5 Reasons How Viewers Are Lead to Think Camila is A Ghost in Killer Bride

11:33:00 PM

The Killer Bride ghosting phenomenon has invaded every house on primetime and what's more interesting is that everyone is hooked with how the story unfolds. From the beginning of the TV series/ teleserye, the story of Camila de la Torre, which was played by Maja Salvador, did show an intriguing forbidden romance that was not revealed instantly. Instead, it was shown mysteriously.

It was indeed breathtaking, convincing, that the characters who played the different roles held you to be there with them. In rage and in anger, that's when the scene of Camila being burned alive. It was a good back story, an epic portrayal of how the story should be tailored.

But tonight's revelation was intriguing and changes the whole concept. The ones that we have established in our minds and the probability that we created to answer some of the mysteries being depicted in the teleserye.

So, how does the storyteller lead us to think that Camila de la Torre is dead? Well, here are five of the reasons how we are lead to that notion.

1. The Bridal Gown Burning Teaser. It all started into this teaser, the burning gown and the screaming of Camila de la Torre.  We were first brainwashed into thinking that the teleserye is a ghost story and with the title of the Killer Bride.

2. Camila Burning in the Cell. Another teaser that made us think that Camila is dead is her scene inside the cell while the whole place is burning like hell. So with this, our minds are conditioned that in the story Camila will die.

3. The Curse. This one is perhaps common in horror stories, the cursing of the abused and maltreated character. We were accustomed to stories like this when the line in the teaser "Sinusumpa ko babalikan ko kayong lahat. At ipapakita ko sa inyo kung anong klaseng demonyo ang tinapon nyo sa impyerno." was cast that was the point where we made to believe that the character of Camila died.

4. The camping stories of the Killer Bride scene. An additional convincing factor that Camila was dead was the scene where her story as the Killer Bride was told in camping. More of it became a kwentong bayan. A story that is told and passed around which became part of the town's hidden or past story.

5. The Great and Convincing Act of Emma. This one made it even more convincing. The scene of Emma seeing and hearing the ghost of Camila de la Torre and what's made it even more intriguing is that it happens in a morgue where most of the ghost stories occur.

Now, these are my five observations for the reasons how we, the viewers, are lead to thinking that Camila de la Torre is a ghost in the past few episodes of the Killer Bride.  In a much more colloquial or simpler term "nabudol tayo ni Emma at Camila". We were fooled to think that Camila is dead.

So, the story unfolds. Killer Bride isn't a ghost story but much more of a vengeance story. I think this is just the first of the mysteries that are unfolding. We will be looking forward to more of the story.

5 Signs that You're Still Truly, Madly, Deeply In Love with Your Ex

10:48:00 PM

Being in love and falling in love is a blissful feeling. The surge of emotion whenever two people find compatibility with their feelings. That is love, the feeling that binds us two people.

Sometimes when we're in love we go beyond our limits, we go crazy and we tend to be selfish. Too much love that at certain moment we tend to forget ourselves and we deeply devote our life to that person. That is what I call "I give my all". Been there done that.

What happens when the other part of that relationship fell out of love and you, the one who gave it all, is still madly in love? Well, that's sad but life goes on and you need to move on. Life doesn't give you what you always wanted.

Dahil sa Pag-ibig Is GMA's New Teleserye that is About Love, Betrayal and Vengeance

10:04:00 AM

Hearing the phrase "Dahil sa Pag-ibig" brings the rhythmic old song. When I say old well, it's now my generation but much further. It's actually a song sung by Anthony Castelo, which my father sung when I was still a kid, that's why the phrase rings a bell.  But my story not about the song but GMA's new teleserye that will air next week, specifically May 20.

Beginning May 20, GMA Network redefines the Kapuso viewers’ afternoon viewing experience with the gripping story about the sacrifices a wife would be willing to endure for the sake of her husband in Dahil sa Pag-ibig. This goes with the line "how far will you go for love."

The original drama is topbilled by the network’s highly-talented and promising stars: Benjamin Alves as Eldon, Winwyn Marquez as Portia, Pancho Magno as Gary and Sanya Lopez as Mariel.

Eldon (Benjamin), who works as an OFW in Saudi Arabia, commits a grave crime that eventually lands him in jail. His wife Mariel (Sanya), who is left in the Philippines, is desperate to earn the “Blood Money” that will bail out her husband. Portia (Winwyn), the wife of Eldon’s employer, is bent on putting him behind bars. Gary (Pancho), Mariel’s rich former lover, offers an indecent proposal that shakes her fidelity to Eldon.

Driven by the fears and sacrifices of every wife who has an OFW for a husband, Dahil sa Pag-ibig tells the thought-provoking tale of the temptations and difficulties that a married couple confront when separated by distance.

Witness in Dahil Sa Pag-ibig how a shocking revelation turned the once perfect lives of the characters of this soap into a nightmare.

Joining the powerhouse cast are Sandy Andolong as Nanette, Mariel’s naïve mother; Dominic Roco as Roger, Eldon’s trusted friend and housemate in Saudi; Devon Seron as Chin-Chin, Mariel’s comical best friend; Kelley Day as Alison, Gary’s sophisticated girlfriend; Tep Tep Pineda as Justine, Mariel and Eldon’s lovable daughter; and Tetchie Agbayani as Clara, Eldon’s strict mother.

Behind this engrossing drama is the creative team composed of Creative Director Aloy Adlawan; Creative Head RJ Nuevas; Creative Consultant Agnes Uligan; Headwriter Christine Novicio; Writers Wiro Michael Ladera and Marlon Miguel; and Brainstormers Nehem Dallego and Angeli Delgado.

The series is another original creation of the GMA Drama Group under the supervision of Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable; Vice President for Drama Redgie Acuña-Magno; Assistant Vice President for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy; Senior Program Manager Cathy Ochoa Perez, Executive Producer Arlene Pilapil.

Discover the World of Sahaya beginning March 18 on GMA Telebabad

4:25:00 PM

Talking about history, culture and heritage, I believe that this topics or stories are shown and describe by the Kapuso Network fairly based on facts and information.

In her titular role as Sahaya, Bianca breathes life into a beautiful Badjaw lady blessed with extraordinary abilities which will lead her to inspire her family and her people, including Ahmad, her simple childhood friend who has always been in love with her, portrayed by Miguel.

Adding a twist to their story is Jordan, played by Migo, the wealthy Manileño who will compete with Ahmad for Sahaya’s love.

Joining them in this intriguing series are talented actors and actresses: Eric Quizon as Hubert, Jordan’s father whose business is coral mining at Sahaya’s village in Tawi-Tawi; Zoren Legaspi as Harold, Sahaya’s father who abandons her mother before he knew that they were about to have a child; Mylene Dizon as Manisan, a Badjaw who fell for Harold and ended up raising and teaching their daughter, Sahaya, resiliency and good values; Pen Medina as Panglima Alari, Manisan’s father and the panglima (leader) of the Sama Dilaut; Debra Liz as Babu, Sahaya’s cheerful grandmother; Juan Rodrigo as Bapa, older brother of Panglima Alari; Ana Roces as Irene, Harold’s loyal wife who will do anything to protect her family; Ashley Ortega as Lindsay, Jordan’s spoiled cousin and the school’s queen bee; and Ms. Snooky Serna as Salida, a loving yet vengeful mother who will be the reason why Manisan and Sahaya will be separated.

Playing very special roles in the pilot week are Benjamin Alves as Aratu, Salida’s son and Manisan’s husband; Gil Cuerva as the young Harold; Karl Medina as young Alari and Jasmine Curtis-Smith as the young Manisan.

To shed light on the culture of our Badjao brothers and sisters, GMA 7 hired consultants and recreated an entire set reminiscent of a real Badjao village in Calatagan, Batangas that will bring viewers a realistic vision of their community—a surprising feat only the Kapuso Network delivers in a remarkable manner. Likewise for this program, the Network sets the bar even higher as it uses for the first time a high-end cinema camera to create clean, sharp and cinematic images.

GMA, the Kapuso Network, must have fallen in love with the unknown, the mysterious, and the magical. When it happens it just hard to forget. Probably, the network aims to involve its viewer by playing creative and magical stories in their teleseryes. Like what they did in the past, from Encantadia to Magika to Sirkus and now to Kara Mia.

The thing about Kara Mia, the current talk of every meme on social media, is that it is a fusion of mystery and enchantments, drama and bits of comedy, and a whole lot more from the characters.
