Barbie Forteza and Derrick Monasterio for INDAY Will Always Love You

Sunday, May 20, 2018

It was like a fiesta when we arrived at GMA's blogcon for INDAY Will Always Love You which stars good friends Derrick Monasterio and Barbie Forteza. Ricky Davao plays Philip, a lechonero and Cebu magnate. Juancho plays Ernest, the third wheel. He's a Cebuano musician. Ericka Ferraren will also be joining the cast, it's a pretty interesting combination.

Derrick remarks "We have been good friends and in this show we are just going to do what we have to do because Barbie and I know we have to finish the scenes. If it ends up that fans would like the romantic angle, I'd be glad. We take care of each other. It's hard to make people laugh, if you're corny you're really corny. I don't go the mile and tease her because she's the one who bullys me."

Barbie says "It is easy because I get to work with a guy that I've known for a long time, we have no instances of ilangan because we talk about the scenes first before we do a take, even if we are creating new characters we don't have to pretend because he's a gentleman, we talk about where the process and dialogue would take us, that is the secret. It's hard to make people laugh or cry, Derrick and I are close and I hope that translates on screen."

Ricky Davao says "I get inspiration from the young ones, I don't see why Barbie shouldn't be the model actress of her generation. She is very professional, light hearted in the set and she does it well. She is gonna last in this industry, I like her a lot. We shot everything in the real Sinulog Festival, so it's interesting to see how colorful our culture is. We wake up at 5 and work with different people, we learn a lot especially with Gladys because she's like a walking encyclopedia. It's hard to shoot because of the heat, but it looks good on screen."

You'll love this new show called INDAY Will Always Love You which will premier on May 21st, on GMA's primetime slot. I can't wait to see their production numbers, the trailers have shown some of it and it looks promising. 

Let's get this show on the road!

TOTGA Ends Exciting Show Today

Friday, May 18, 2018

Today marks the end of popular romcom show The One That Got Away on GMA primetime TV. Sad that it has all come to this, and as of yesterday the three men and three ladies seem to have not realized their dream of having a peaceful love life and relationship because now, they're all trapped in a forest - with no help or signal along the way because the plans of Renz Fernandez and vixen Solenn Heussaff are still in play. Tied up and gagged, will the ladies be able to find them later in the finale episode?

Don't get your hopes up because it's a bit difficult as they have split out and tried to find them in that forest, with no assurance that they'd be still alive or be eaten fresh by Renz Fernandez and Solenn's character. Lovi says "I will miss working with my co stars especially Dennis whom I find so good in the acting department, how he shifts, how he portrays the main guy, we felt it's all fresh and new!"

Max Collins adds "What I would miss most is the bond and friendships we formed while we did this series. Our fight scenes, we were like kids on the playground, I'll miss them all." While Rhian on the other hand says "I gave my all, my character here is so experimental and won't just fall on your lap everyday, I thank the creatives for making such fun personas in this show."

TOTGA also stars Ivan Dorschner, Migo Adecer,  Jason Abalos, Ms. Snooky Serna, Bembol Roco, Luz Valdez, Ervic Vijandre, Nar Cabico, Jason Francisco, Patricia Ismael, Kelley Day,  Euwenn Aleta and Sophie Albert. This was conceptualized for TV by Angeli Delgado, written by Renei Dimla under the GMA Entertainment Group of Madame Lilybeth G. Rasonable. This is directed by Mark Sicat Dela Cruz.

Watch the last episode later please! I would be too! :)

Anne Curtis and Dingdong Dantes for Sid & Aya

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Haven't really watched this film yet but it looks so promising. You can say this is an acting piece and with Anne Curtis and Dingdong Dantes donning the role of Sid & Aya, this would be an interesting story. Dingdong plays Sid, an man suffering from insomnia. In one of his sleepless nights, he met Aya - a woman who made his empty nights bearable, but who is she exactly? That remains to he a mystery.

This isn't the first time that Dingdong and Anne is working together, they reprised the role of IƱaki Torres and Emily, not as sweethearts as they were paired with different actors. This time, Anne and Dingdong went all the way to Japan just so they could film their first on screen pairing. Though as they put it, this isn't a love story. The trailers only depict a few parts of an odd relationship, with chemistry, probably romantic. What would happen if their lives intertwined? What would happen if they meet? 

When I met Dingdong before, I was always playing support, it wasn't in the slightest idea for us to be paired. Since we have worked together, it wasn't hard because I already knew Dingdong. All we did in Japan, it wasn't typical. It's visually appealing to the eye, the teams went smooth sailing and one of the most exciting parts is going to be seen in the movie. Aya is a crazy girl, much like me."

Dingdong added "If I remember correctly, Anne was in Magic Kingdom when we worked together. I think I'm stuck in the 90's and the film is somehow connected to that. I think it's a good idea for us to be in a project now, we spent almost a year making this and it was hard on schedules, where dedicated teams spent time, blood and money to make this what it is now. We shot with a skeleton team in Japan, it's one of my favorite destinations and it was so nice to go there and work. Sid is a flawed person, he will get away with most trouble he's going to make."

Direk Irene says "The two characters are strong willed, so the name came from Sidaya which means cheating, but again this isn't a love story, as Sid mentions in the story not all I love yous means it is. The concept was made 4 years ago and I knew we had to make it, so I pitched it and the story needs to be in Japan as it is relevant to the life of Aya."

If you would like to know more about Sid and Aya, make sure you get tickets when it shows nationwide May 30 under Viva Films. Mind you, they will have different screenings here,the Middle East, Italy and Hong Kong. This is under the direction of Irene Villamor who did Camp Sawi and Meet Me in St Gallen.

Sexy Fun: OH BOY! & OH LOL! at the Music Museum

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

It's already the 16th and that means you only have about two days to go to purchase tickets to one of the sexiest and funniest shows this month called OH BOY! & OH LOL! which headlines 4 hunky men of GMA Rocco Nacino, Derrick Monasterio, Jak Roberto, Dave Bornea and the lovely comedians Donita Nose and Super Tekla. 

The previous show held at the same venue got a pretty good audience and they're raring to do even MORE this time with the new guys they are with, now that Jak Roberto and Dave Bornea will be joining them. Rocco in fact says he's going to do more prep work with the production numbers they'll be doing this Friday because they have a grasp pf what to actually do after staging the first successful one. He's also teaching the new guys what to expect in this new show, but always let them remember they can add their own style and flavor to their individual production numbers, abd those that they'll be doing in a group.

Donita Nose on the other hand says "Our kind of comedy is situational, live, and happens when it happens. So if you are expecting a LOT OF FUN that evening, that's what you'll get and more. People have always seen our antics on Youtube and our previous pairing on Will's show, but now we have 4 boys to play with and that only would mean we'll have a little more naughty fun. We will be interacting more with the audience and Tekla and I will be doing production numbers with them, this will be a riot for sure!"

The show OH BOY! & OH LOL! will happen on May 18th, this Friday at the Music Museum. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, you may purchase them at and at the venue (while tickets last). They promise you'll get to see more sexy stuff and have fun while you are there. Hopefully they can take the show around the world because this seems all so much fun!

Can't wait to see you on this date!
