Bea back with a vengeance on the big screen

BEA Alonzo is tagged by some folks as the movie queen of her generation but she didn’t do a single movie last year. Her last movie was still “How to Be Yours” in 2016 with ex Gerald Anderson. How come? 

“Kasi I was doing ‘A Love to Last’ on primetime and it was extended several times so no time for me to do a movie,” she explains.

But this year, she’s back on the big screen with a vengeance as she is in the cast of no less than three new films. Her first movie for  this year, “Kasal”, directed by Ruel Bayani, is scheduled to be shown   May 16. Also completed is the mystery-horror flick, “Eerie,” a collaboration between ABS-CBN and a Singaporean company. The story is set in a Catholic school where a murder and a suicide have been committed and Bea plays a teacher who helps solve the case. She co-stars with Charo Santos Concio, Maxene Magalona and Jake Cuenca, directed by Mikhail Red of the acclaimed “Birdshot.” Her third movie will be her first team up with Aga Muhlach.

In “Kasal,” Bea plays Lia, a schoolteacher who’s all set to marry Paulo as Philip, Cebu’s most eligible bachelor. She suddenly becomes a public figure when her fiance, who comes from a political family, is forced to run as mayor. And things get even more complicated when her ex-boyfriend, Derek Ramsay as Wado, returns home just before the wedding. Secrets will be revealed and Bea is put in a dilemma as to who between the two guys she should ultimately choose.


Jameson Blake admits he feels sad when he’s bashed by fans of the Janella Salvador-Elmo Magalona love team now that he’s the one paired with Janella in Regal’s “So Connected” that opens in theaters on May 23.  “What hurts the most is being called a user,” he says.

“Ginagamit ko raw si Janella para sumikat ako. Before this, ang dami ko na ring ginawang ibang movies. I’m a working actor and Regal offered me this project with Janella, so both of us, we’re just doing our jobs. But that’s their opinion, so bahala sila.”

Jameson confessed that he is the actor that director Jun Lana lambasted for allegedly treating his movie projects just as a “racket.” They’re now doing the film “Ang Babaeng Allergic sa Wifi”. “My handler was asking his permission for me to leave the set early, kasi may maaga akong call time the next day,” he says. “I understand naman si Direk Jun na gusto lang niyang mas mapaganda ang movie namin.  But okay na kami. For sure, matatapos namin nang maayos ang aming movie.”

“So Connected” is written and directed by Jason Paul Laxamana and he’s asked if he had a similar problem with Jameson? 

“Wala naman,” he says. “He’s actually very nice and nice to work with.”


Child star Leanne Bautista gets her biggest break in acting as the daughter of Jennylyn Mercado and Tom Rodriguez in GMA-7’s new suspense-thriller, “The Cure.” Born on October 14, 2010, the 7-year old kiddie star and only child started as a TV commercial model. In acting, she auditioned with GMA-7 and was first introduced two years ago as the adopted daughter of Heart Evangelista in “Juan Happy Love Story.”

This was followed by “Ika-6 na Utos” where she played the daughter of Zoren Legaspi and “Mulawin vs. Ravena.” Then she was also a guest in single episodes of several drama shows. Although busy as a child actress, she has not neglected her studies. She’s now in Grade 3. 

“Home school po ako,” she adds. “Dinadala ko po sa set ang studies ko at may cut off po ako sa taping at 8 p.m., pero puede ring 12 midnight kapag ‘di pa tapos mga eksena ko.”

So how is it working with Jennylyn and Tom in “The Cure”? 

“Mababait po sila, pati si Direk Mark Reyes. Inaalagaan po nila ako sa set. Si Ate Jen, sinasama ako kapag namamasyal sila ng anak niya, si Alex Jazz. Dalawang beses na kaming nagpunta sa Kidzania.”


Riva Quenery is the true general’s daughter. Her dad is Gen. Robert Quenery, PMA 1985 graduate now assigned in Region 7. Riva used to be part of Girltrends in “It’s Showtime,” but she’s now on her own as a vlogger and you tube sensation. Born on May 29, 1998, she’s the youngest of three kids and the only girl. Her dad was against it when she said she wanted to join showbiz. 

“He wants me to finish college as I was taking up dentistry,” she says. “But I said baka pagsisihan ko later kapag hindi ko na-try gawin ang talagang gusto ko.”

She started to be a vlogger in 2016 and the name of her vlog is RiVlog, which she runs all by herself. “I post stories about my travels, my dance numbers, and also challenges and requests made by my followers.”

Now known as an online influencer, she got YouTube’s Silver Play Button Award, given to those with 100,000 subscribers. She now has almost 350,000 regular followers and is staging her first major concert two days before her birthday on May 27, “RiVlog Live!” at the SM Skydome in North Edsa. Her guests are Mariz Racal, Awra Briguela, Zeus Collins, plus close friends Krisha Viaje and Samie Rimando. You can get your concert tickets at 470-2222 or online at


Barbie Forteza is back on the same time slot she had before in “Meant to Be” as the last soap shown   evening primetime on GMA. This time, her new show, “Inday Will Always Love You,” is a romantic-comedy pairing her anew with Derrick Monasterio with whom she did the hit

“The Half Sisters.” Barbie plays Happylou, a perky spirited girl who is the daughter of Manilyn Reynes as Marta, with Ricky Davao as Philip, her long-lost father and Nova Villa as Lola Loleng, her doting grandma. 

After she loses her job in a litsunan because of a visitor, Derrick Monasterio as Patrick, she is encouraged by her friend Juancho Trivino as Ernest to relocate to Cebu and work there in a litsunan where she again meets Derrick, who turns out to be the nephew of Ricky Davao, the owner of the litsunan. Although Barbie’s relationship with Derrick starts on the wrong foot, we know that they will eventually warm up to each other and romance is soon in the air. The problem is Derrick is the son of Gladys Reyes as Amanda, the sister of Ricky, so could it be that they’re first cousins since Barbie doesn’t know yet that Ricky is her long-lost dad?

During the presscon, Barbie was praised lavishly by her senior co-stars. “First time ko nakatrabaho si Barbie was in the movie, ‘Mariquina’, for which she won a best supporting actress award,” says Ricky. “Good role model siya sa actors na ka-age niya ngayon kasi she’s very respectful, tahimik lang sa set but serious with her craft and does what is expected from her.”

“Una kong nakasama si Barbie sa ‘Nita Negrita,’ my first soap sa GMA-7,” says Nova. “Kaya nakita ko ang pag-akyat ng career niya. Batambata pa siya noon pero nakita ko na agad na magaling siya. Masarap siyang katrabaho kasi maganda lagi ang mood at napakagaling mag-memorize ng lines niya.”

But naturally, Barbie is overwhelmed with all the praises she heard from her senior co-stars. “Wow, music to my ears. Very encouraging at dahil diyan, lalo kong pagbubutihin ang trabaho ko. Promise. I won’t let you down.”


JV Kapunan joins Megasoft Hygienic Products’ roster of celebrity endorsers that includes Jolina Magdangal, Myrtle Sarossa and Ryle Santiago. We asked Marketing VP Aileen Choi Go why they chose JV as their newest ambassador.

“Unang-una, he has such a pleasing personality, a cutie pie, he’s young and will never grow old,” she says. “He’s also very talented. He can sing, dance, act and even compose his own songs. The whole package. And we love it that he comes from a good family and his parents are so involved in him, Gen. and Ambassador to Myanmar Eduardo Kapunan and his mom, Elsa. At his very young age, JV also has his own charity organization, the Lahing Bayani Foundation that sends children of soldiers to school. So, ano pang hahanapin mo?”

What can JV say about this? “It’s an honor to be part of Megasoft and endorse their various products. I really like their advocacy of going around schools all over the country to make young people realize the value of having a good education. They should all listen to their parents.

When I was small, I hated my dad and I cannot understand why he’s so strict with me. But now, I realized that it’s all part of molding me for me to get all the good values he wants to share with me. We’re now very close.”
