Lloydie should take care of his looks if he wants to stage a comeback

NADINE Lustre is happy to leave 2017 behind. She’s the first to admit it’s not a good year for her, what with her younger brother’s untimely death that caused her to be depressed. 

“I feel really great now kasi, even though bad things really happened to us, ganun talaga. Minsan, hindi natin ine-expect ‘yung mangyayari. If it’s meant to happen, it’s gonna happen,” she said, “Our family learned so much from what happened and we all became better people. We promised to each ­other that we’d be stronger and closer. A lot of other people were also touched by the incident. Sila ‘yung nag-push talaga sa’kin to get out of my depression. They were messaging me through Instagram, may mga e-mails and I feel really blessed because all these people encouraged me kaya pinilit ko ang sarili to pull myself up and stay strong and be there for everyone.”

She directed the new music video of her boyfriend James Reid and people say she did a good job. “I took up filmmaking in school at noon ko pa talaga gusto magdirek so I’m happy nagustuhan nila ang trabaho ko. Mahilig din ako sa music and the songs of James inspired me, so I suggested that I direct his music video. I’m really thankful na pumayag siya at ginastuan niya talaga ang music video.”

She and James are back big time in “Revolution: The JaDine Concert” at the Big Dome on February 9. She’s elated as she’ll have a duet with special guest Sarah Geronimo. “I’m really excited kasi we’ll sing my favorite songs since bata pa ako,” she says.

 “Britney and Madonna ang peg nila sa number nila,” says James.

Nadine is back in two new movies: “Never Not Love You” with James, directed by Antoinette Jadaone and horror-thriller “The Nurse” with Lorna Tolentino, to be shot in Japan by director Jun Lana. 

“Revolution, The Jadine Concert” is directed by Paul Basinillo. Call Ticketnet at 911-5555 or Viva Live at 687-7236 for tickets.

It’s said Ellen Adarna and John Lloyd Cruz are officially tying the knot on a beach in Cebu at the end of this month. Here’s hoping they took a helpful marriage preparation program like the Discovery Weekend to help them face the problems they will surely encounter later in their marital life.  

Like always, it’s happy and rosy at the beginning, but once the rigors of living day in and out as a married couple set in, there’s some reality check and, if they’re not prepared, it will be very difficult for any married couple to handle the potential problems they might crop up, which is where a good marriage mentoring and adjustment program can be very helpful. 

But a lot of young couples think they don’t need such helpful programs and believe they’ll just live happily ever after automatically. Then they wake up one day realizing the magic is gone and it’s time to call it quits as they’ve given up and think the damage to their marital relationship is irreparable.

We’re told that Ellen is due to deliver their baby around May or June. And Lloydie has promised to take good care of her and their baby, taking a leave of absence from his work for a while. He believes that he still can make a comeback later. 

It’s said his peg is Richard Gutierrez, who was gone for some years after son Zion was born, but still returned successfully in showbiz via “La Luna Sangre.” The advantage of Richard is he has retained his good looks. As for Lloydie, he should pay full attention to his receding hairline and make sure his forehead won’t get any wider.

Lovi Poe, Rhian Ramos and Max Collins share topbilling as the three women who pine for Dennis Trillo in the new GMA-7 primetime show, “The One that Got Away (TOTGA).” They quickly laugh off the rumor that there is a rivalry among the three of them.

“We’re here para magtulong-tulong para mas mapaganda ang bawat episode ng aming show,” says Lovi, who plays Alex, a young woman with a bubbly disposition and works for a cable network as an aspiring travel show host. 

“I’m really glad na lahat kami rito, magkakaibigan kaya wala kaming intention na magpatalbugan o magsapawan,” says Rhian who plays Zoe, a swimwear designer (that’s why you’d see her sporting sexy skimpy swimsuits in the show) who is carefree and sunshiny. She is popular in social media and lives by herself in an uppity condominium. 

“Masaya kami lagi sa set at maingay kami, pero si Dennis Trillo laging tahimik lang,” says Max, who plays Darcy, a personal gym trainer who is so sexy. She’s a strong willed and very principled young woman who hates being dependent on others. 

Max is newly married in real life, to Kapuso actor Pancho Magno, and they just had their wedding on December 11. They didn’t have time to go on honeymoon because she’s busy taping for “The One that Got Away” that will start airing on January 15. 

“Okay lang naman na trabaho agad ako after the wedding and he doesn’t complain kasi busy rin siya taping for his own show, ‘Haplos,’ with Sanya Lopez,” says Max. “I told him to join us muna ng family ko while we’re looking for a house of our own.”

Christopher de Leon is one of our busiest actors these days as he is making shuttling between the sets of two TV dramas from the top two competing networks. He is now seen on primetime in “Kambal, Karibal” as the father of Marvin Agustin who tries his best to fix the problems caused by his son.

With ABS-CBN, he is now taping “Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko,” which will be replacing the Kim-Gerald morning drama, “Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin.” He plays the dad of Jodi Santamaria, who plays twins in the story, with Robin Padill and Richard Yap as the two leading men. 

Actually, he started taping for “Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko” ahead of “Kambal, Karibal,” but the project was shelved for a while, so he’s been jobless for several months, until the offer of GMA-7 came to do “Kambal, Karibal.” This is just okay for both networks since “Kambal, Karibal” is seen on primetime while “Sana Dalawa” will be aired in their morning slot.

Of the eight official entries in the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017, there’s only one movie we didn’t bother to watch anymore: “Gandarrapido, The Revenger Squad,” simply because everyone discouraged us. Some writers told us watching it is just a waste of time. Three writers told me they slept through it. 

“Suwerte ni Vice Ganda na kumikita pa rin ang movies niya kahit hindi na nakakatawa ang style ng comedy niya,” says one writer. “Si Daniel Padilla, nasayang lang sa movie. Mabuti pa noong ang late Wenn Deramas ang nagdidirek kay Vice, at least, may funny scenes pa rin. Pero kay Joyce Bernal, wala. Wala yatang sense of humor si Bb. Joyce.”

But we’re sure Joyce and Vice couldn’t care less. They know their movie is critic-proof. Folks might lambast but people would still flock to it. After all, the movie is said to have earned P400 million so far and the next movie among the list of top grossers, “Ang Panday,” is a faraway number two, having earned only one half of “Revenger’s” box office take. 

“Sisihin ang masa viewers na mas gusto ng basura kaysa ng movies that will help uplit them,” says another writer. “And this proves once more that’s there truth to the saying na ‘May pera sa basura’.”

To Vice’s critics and detractors, eat your hearts out. No matter what you say, the greater majority of the public chose to support his movie.

GMA Network needs to develop younger lead stars in their late teens and early 20s since of their most bankable ones now are not getting any younger since they’re 30 plus. And we don’t have to name them. Soon they will be playing mom and dad roles. 

Even GMA’s original discoveries in the first and second batches of “Starstruck” are now in their 30s. Among those in the mid-20s, only Alden Richards shows some promising durability.

We all know there’s a premium on youth when it comes to being showbiz celebrities, so their talent development people should be on the lookout for more new leads and younger idols. These days, their list of young male leads with great potential include Derrick Monasterio, Ruru Madrid, Ken Chan, Jak Roberto, Kiko Estrada, Jeric Gonzales, Andre Paras, Miguel Tanfelix. Currently missing in action are Juancho Trivino and Kristoffer Martin, who both need more exposure.
