Ai Ai delas Alas feeling Great After Vacation

Lately we saw Ai Ai interviewed by Boy Abunda in the Buzz crying because according to her she was physically abused by her husband whom she married just a month. The businessman Jed Galang denied the accusation of Ai Ai delas Alas. After her month long vacation in United States Ai Ai felt relieved because of her three children. The 48 years old actress is busy with her new film with Marian Rivera which is entitled as "Kung Fu Divas". 

Here is the news from ABS-CBN about Ai Ai:
Ai Ai delas Alas

MANILA -- After enduring a tumultous first half of the year, Ai Ai delas Alas is returning from a well-spent vacation in the United States feeling "reborn."

The 48-year-old actress, who returned to Manila early this week, referred to her month-long vacation as her "road to redemption," pointing to the quality time she was able to spend with her three children.

"Parang road to redemption pag nakikita ko 'yung mga anak ko, parang lumalakas ako, para ko silang vitamins... [I feel] reborn! Ai Ai reborn, lahat-lahat na! Resurrected! Kung anu-ano nalang," she told ABS-CBN News on Thursday.

In recent months, delas Alas and her former partner, businessman Jed Salang, made headlines when the actress broke down in a televised interview claiming she is a victim of domestic violence.

Delas Alas has since filed a case against Salang for violation of the Anti-Violence against Women and Their Children Act of 2004.

The former couple, who were married in a civil wedding on April 3 and separated on May 2, last faced in court on June 19.

Asked if she has completely move on from her failed relationship with Salang, the actress said, "Ay, waley, alam mo naman ako, made of wood, cement, ganyan, para akong bahay! Konting pahinga lang... Kumbaga, pag dapa, bangon ulit."

The "Tanging Ina" star, however, is now decidedly more cautious when it comes to relationships, saying she should start to be less trusting.

"Kaunting ingat and vigilance, and dapat stronger. Kailangan kasi! Problema ko talaga 'yan eh. Masyado akong trusting, 'yun ang problema ko talaga, kahit noon pa.

"[Kahit] huwag ito 'yung pag-usapan natin, 'yung nangyari sa 'kin ngayon. Kahit noon pa, 'yan nalang problema ko, hindi lang sa love life, sa maraming tao," she said.

Whereas before, delas Alas expected acts of kindness to go both ways, the actress said she has come to accept that not everyone would reciprocate.

"Kasi parang feeling ko lahat ng tao, kung ano 'yung ako, siya rin 'yon. Kung ano 'yung trato natin sa isa't-isa, kung mabait ako sa'yo, mabait ka rin. Hindi naman pala gonon, iba-iba pala ang klase ng tao. So 'yun 'yung sinasabi kong vigilance," she said.

Now feeling "re-energized," delas Alas said she is thrilled to resume work on the action-comedy film "Kung Fu Divas," wherein she co-stars with actress Marian Rivera.

Delas Alas will start promoting the movie, leading up to its nationwide release on September 25.

Oprah is the Most Powerful Celebrity in 2013

After second placement for two consecutive years, Oprah is back in number one position. By the way Madonna is rumored to be a billionaire now but unfortunately her older brother is a bum. Well according to the report the material girl had helped him many times while he was in rehab suffering from alcohol addiction. Let's get back to Oprah, although her income declined but other criteria has able to pull-up her up to number one position. 

Here is the news from about her:

Everyone should know this by now: Never count Oprah out. Despite business stumbles and an $88 million earnings drop since last year, Oprah Winfrey returns to the top of Forbes’ annual Celebrity 100 ranking of the most powerful celebrities after two years in second place. She leads a female-dominated top 10 that includes Lady Gaga, Beyonce, MadonnaTaylor Swift and Ellen DeGeneres.

Even without her eponymous daytime talk show, Winfrey made an estimated $77 million between June 2012 and June 2013, down from last year’s $165 million. While she wasn’t the highest earner on our list, her money, mixed with strong fame scores in metrics like press mentions and social networking power, pushed her to the top.
Winfrey remains a powerful force in Hollywood. Her Oprah Winfrey Network, once a drifting cable outpost that lost an estimated $330 million for parent company Discovery between 2008 and the end of 2012, is now a smoothish-running media machine that could turn a profit by the end of 2013.
Mistakes like Rose O’Donnell’s talk show? History. Nailing must-see viewing, like her two-night interview with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, is Winfrey’s focus now, as are scripted shows with help from fellow Celebrity 100 member Tyler Perry. In the near future, shows that don’t star Winfrey could become as much of a draw as her own programs. Winfrey also earns from an empire that includes her O magazine, talk shows from protégés like Rachael Ray and Dr. Phil, and a network on SiriusXM satellite radio.
Unlike most FORBES lists, which are based on earnings or net worth, our annual Celebrity 100 takes a stab at measuring that most ephemeral of riches: fame. Yes, we factor in celebrity earnings over the last 12 months, but we also tally how often each celebrity is mentioned in print and on TV, and gauge the strength of their Internet presence and how they’re viewed by a critical constituency: American consumers.
This year we added a marketability score (1-100) for each celebrity that was developed by Encino, Calif.-based market research firm E-Poll, based on opinion polling about 46 different attributes for 6,600 different celebrities. Will Smith, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock are the most marketable celebrities on our list (Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James ranks dead last in that category).
For social networking strength, we worked with another new partner, Starcount, a Singapore-based company that measures impact across 11 social media platforms including Facebook FB -1.1%, Twitter, YouTube and Google GOOG -1.53% +. Each celebrity’s Starcount number gives a sense of how popular he or she is on the Internet.
Pop stars tend to do very well on this metric. Last year’s Celebrity 100 cover boy, Justin Bieber, has the most social networking power of the 100 celebrities on our list, followed by Rihanna and Lady Gaga.
Of course, because we’re FORBES, money carries the most weight in our rankings, and thanks to that Madonna is back on the Celeb 100–in fifth place–after two years off the list. Even though her newest album, MDNA, was a flop, the Material Girl still managed to rank as this year’s top earner thanks to a world tour that helped her rake in $125 million between June 2012 and June 2013.
Lady Gaga, who topped our list in 2011 and is often considered Madonna’s heir, ranks second despite cutting her tour short due to a hip injury. Gaga still managed to earn $80 million and get the second-most press mentions of anyone on our list (behind Rihanna). Gaga is also a master of social networking. Her Little Monsters hang on her every tweet, making her the third most successful social networker on our list.
Together with Beyonce (fourth,) Taylor Swift (sixth) and Ellen Degeneres (10th) women occupy six of the top 10 slots on this year’s list, down from seven last year. Overall, they landed 35 of 100 slots, about the same as last year.
The four men who crack the top 10 are director Steven Spielberg (third), rock band Bon Jovi (seventh), tennis player Roger Federer (eighth), and pop star Bieber (ninth).
Spielberg is up seven spots from last year, with estimated earnings of $100 million. The director was back in peak form with political biopic Lincoln. The film not only earned two Oscars, it also grossed a tidy $275 million at the global box office on a budget of $65 million. Spielberg’s TV work isn’t going quite as well, DreamWorks’ Smash was recently canceled by NBC. But he’s got several new shows in the works, including a small screen version of the popular video game, Halo.
Federer, the highest-ranked athlete on our list, is up 23 spots from last year thanks to the most impressive endorsement portfolio in sports. Ten sponsors collectively pay him more than $40 million annually. He’s also a press darling. Federer ranks seventh for celebrities with the most mentions in print.
Last year’s number one, Jennifer Lopez, falls to 12th place on our list this time around. With American Idol in her rearview mirror, Lopez just doesn’t carry the same buzz as a year ago, despite the ratings implosion of the show. No worries, though. She still managed to pull in $45 million from a major concert tour and endless endorsement work.

Is Coco Martin Secretly Married?

Coco Martin who started from Indie Films is now one of the most popular actors. He was tagged as the "Prince of Indie Films" because he started from Indie films like "Masahista", Serbis, katay, daybreak and others. Right after the success of "Walang Hanggan", Coco Martin is now busy with his new starer which is "Juan dela Cruz". He also won many awards and was sexiest man in the Philippines. His teleserye is one of the best show as it is the most watched prime time show.Is he really married? Let's find out from the news about him according to ABS-CBN News.

'Juan dela Cruz' star wants personal life private

MANILA -- "Juan dela Cruz" star Coco Martin addressed speculations about his supposed civil status, which, tabloid reports claim, is reflected in his passport.

The 31-year-old actor denied Friday that he was secretly married to a non-showbiz partner in Canada, and that he owns a Canadian passport.

"Actually, marami nga nagsabi sa akin niyan, kaso sabi ko, 'Hindi naman ako umaalis!' Saan naman nila nakuha 'yun? Eh, ngayon wala kaming [pag-alis papuntang ibang bansa] dahil lagi kaming nagte-taping," Martin told reporters at the sidelines of the Yahoo! OMG Awards, where he won Actor of the Year.
Coco Martin

Following questions noted that the supposed wedding happened before he achieved mainstream success.
Martin, however, was quick to clarify that he has been staying in the Philippines even during his time as an actor identified with independent films. "Ang tagal-tagal ko nang nandito [sa bansa], eh. [Kahit noon] wala. 'Yung passport ko Pilipino."

The sought-after leading man mused that the speculations may have stemmed from his being single, despite being linked to numerous female personalities.

Martin has been romantically linked to a number of Kapamilya stars, including Sarah Geronimo, Angeline Quinto, Erich Gonzales and Julia Montes.

"Siguro 'yung mga tao nako-confuse dahil hanggang ngayon wala akong time para mag-girlfriend. Siguro 'pag dumating din 'yung pagkakataon na napagisip-isip ko na, 'O, talagang may panahon na ako para sa sarili ko,' [magkakaroon din ng oras]," he said.

Public figure, private life
When he finally finds time to be in a relationship, or have a family of his own, Martin said he would want to keep it private. He noted that as an actor, he has already shared enough of his life with the public.

"Siguro kung meron man akong taong iibigin o dadating 'yung punto na gusto ko na rin magpamilya -- siguro para sa akin lahat naman ibinigay ko na, lahat naman ipinakita ko na -- ang gusto ko siguro, arborin ko na, personal ko nang buhay 'yun.

"Tsaka ang ina-ano ko naman kasi gusto ko ng tahimik at simpleng buhay in the future. Kaya ngayon ibinibigay ko 'yung best ko para sa trabaho," he said.

He clarified, however, that the possibility of settling down is still far off, citing his responsibility to his family.
"Bata pa naman ako. Uunahin ko siyempre pamilya ko. Kapag natupad ko na siguro lahat ng pangarap ko para sa pamilya ko, siguro 'yun ang tamang pagkakataon para isipin ko magpakasal," he said.

Currently one of the most visible stars, and among the most awarded actors of his generation, Martin nonetheless understands the public's curiosity with his personal life.

"Artista ako. Part ng work ko 'yun. Ayoko naman pigilan ang mga tao. Basta sabi ko, the more na tahimik ka at wala kang ginagawang masama sa kapwa mo, wala ka dapat ikatakot," he said.

Dingdong Dantes in ABS-CBN New Movie

I watched his movie with Kris Aquino before and I think he is a good actor. We all know that Dingdong Dantes is a GMA talent but he did three movies with ABS-CBN. He is lucky because not all actors are able to do this especially if you are an exclusive talent in a certain company.

Read the article about this news from ABS-CBN:

Actor paired with Bea Alonzo for anniversary film

MANILA -- Dingdong Dantes feels "fortunate" to be part of the year-long 20th anniversary celebration of ABS-CBN's film production outfit.

The 32-year-old actor, who is considered one of the prized leading men of ABS-CBN's rival network GMA-7, is starring in yet another Star Cinema film to mark the third year in a row he has been involved in a high-profile Kapamilya project.
"I'm very fortunate that I'm given the opportunity," Dantes told ABS-CBN News shortly after the film's story conference held Friday.

Dingdong Dantes
Referring to the movie as among Star Cinema's 20th anniversary offerings, the actor added, "Pag gano'n, medyo special talaga 'di ba? And I'm very fortunate na makakasama ako sa ganoong klaseng celebration, even though I wasn't there since day 1. But over the last 2 years, kahit paano [naging parte ako]."

Although largely identified with GMA-7, Dantes has appeared in a number of ABS-CBN projects, including the Metro Manila Film Festival entries "Segunda Mano" and "One More Try."

Both produced by Star Cinema, the films scored back-to-back Best Actor trophies for Dantes in 2011 and 2012.

New leading lady
For his third film with ABS-CBN, Dantes will work for the first time with Bea Alonzo in a story that centers on the pair as best friends.

Although the two have previously worked together in fashion shows and, most recently, a magazine shoot, they have never co-starred in an acting project.

"I'm extremely happy na finally makakatrabaho ko siya," Dantes said, referring to his fourth Kapamilya leading lady after Kris Aquino in "Seguna Mano," and Angel Locsin and Angelica Panganiban in "One More Try."

Alonzo is likewise excited over her team-up with Dantes.

"Ako, I'm excited na finally makakatrabaho ko na siya, kasi alam naman natin na hindi siya everyday nangyayari," she said, before turning to Dantes to add, "I'm very honored na makatrabaho ka."

Like her new leading man, Alonzo said she feels grateful to headline a project that is part of Star Cinema's anniversary line-up.

"Syempre masaya [ako], kasi alam naman natin na every project, every movie na ginagawa nila for the 20th anniversary, ay maganda. Sinimulan 'yon ng 'Four Sisters,' tapos ngayon may 'Tuhog,' and these movies are doing very well," she said.

The actress was referring to the family "dramedy," "Four Sisters and a Wedding," and the black comedy film, "Tuhog," which are still showing in cinemas nationwide.

Alonzo is also among the lead cast members of the Cathy Garcia-Molina-directed "Four Sisters and a Wedding," along with Locsin, Toni Gonzaga, Shaina Magdayao and Enchong Dee.

No pressure
Asked if she feels pressured with the prospect of her latest film -- it being her first team-up with Dantes, and her second Star Cinema anniversary movie -- Alonzo said she prefers to simply "enjoy" the experience of being with a new group of people.

"Ako, I don't want to get pressured, lalo na this early. Ang gusto ko lang mag-enjoy habang ginagawa 'tong pelikulang 'to, to get to know this person (Dantes). I just want to have fun doing this movie.

"Tapos na ako doon sa nakaka-pressure na movies, hindi ba? Nando'n na 'ko sa 'I want each moment to count,' and to make memories with them, with this group," she said.

Agreeing with his new on-screen partner, Dantes added, "I think mag-e-enjoy talaga kami rito. Enjoy, meaning enjoy sa paggawa, and definitely 'yung mga manonood, ay mag-ee-njoy sila sa mapapanood nila. At the same time, maraming mapupulot na mga aral, about relationships, about themselves."

By this time a frequent collaborator of Star Cinema, Dantes was asked whether he now considers the film outfit his "family."

"I love doing movies, gustung-gusto 'yung mga taong katrabaho ko, and everytime I'm on the set, and everytime na gumagawa ako, I always treasure them. I always treat everyone just like family," he said.

The title of the film, as well as its director, have yet to be announced. is the news website of ABS-CBN Corp.

Sam Milby as Villain "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala"

Sam Milby has came long long way from "Big Brothers" to singing and acting. This half Filipino-American actor is very famous for guy next door type acting and he is a lead actor in most of his films. Lately I was surprised that he into villain role too. By the way he is very good in it and very convincing.

Here is the complete article about him taken from ABS-CBN:

MANILA -- Sam Milby is happy to know that he has earned some "haters" because of his character in "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala."

In the ABS-CBN drama series, the 29-year-old heartthrob actor portrays Eros, whose hope of reuniting with his wife and their child becomes an obsessive and potentially fatal hunt.

The character is the first-ever "kontrabida" role of Milby, who was handpicked by lead star Judy Ann Santos for her comeback project.

Over the course of "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" since its Primetime Bida debut in June, Milby's character has evolved from a sweet-talking and aggressive suitor to Anessa (Santos) to her ruthless and physically abusive husband.
At the sidelines of his photo shoot for a fitness magazine on Thursday, Milby said he is thrilled with the response of the audience on his portrayal in the soap.

"I'm really excited and happy about 'Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,' na 'yung reaction ng mga tao... maraming naiinis," he said, bringing up reactions on the popular micro-blogging site Twitter.

"Maganda kasi 'yung sa mga tweets, laging, 'Nakakainis talaga 'yung character ni Eros,' na, 'Sobrang bad siya.' Pero laging may kasamang, 'You're doing such a good job at portraying Eros, keep it up!' Laging may positive note," he said.
Admittedly anxious about playing a "kontrabida" at first, Milby said he feels relieved to get favorable feedback on his take on Eros.

"That's encouraging para sa akin. It's something na I've been working harder for, para sa role na 'to. Syempre it's soemthing different na hindi ko pa nagagawa.

"Having that acknowledgement, seeing 'yung effort ko, improvement sa acting at lahat-lahat, it's encouraging. And ako, I'm sobrang happy for all the feedback I've been getting," he said.

Fast-paced story
For what is seen as his most well-received TV portrayal to date, Milby expressed gratitude to Santos for personally choosing him to take on the role, and his directors for guiding him.
Sam Milby

"Ako, I owe everything to Juday (Santos). Sa sobrang galing ni Juday, I'm really learning a lot from her and feeding off of her energy din. Pati sina direk, I've been asking them, 'Paano ko aatikihin 'tong eksenang to?' They've all been helping me," he said.

The series is directed by Malu Sevilla, Jerry Lopez Sineneng, and Tots Mariscal IV.

Milby is also particularly happy with the performance of "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" in terms of its nationwide ratings.

Based on data from multi-national market research group Kantar Media, the drama series has consistently ruled its timeslot in both urban and rural households.

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes, representing 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population.

Crediting the fast-paced story-telling of "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala," Milby said he isn't surprised with the series' nationwide ratings.

"It's because of the story. the story is sobrang suspenseful eh, ang ganda ng story, you don't know kung ano mangyayari," he said.

At the current point in the story aired so far, Milby said his character "[will have to be] the bad guy right now."
"Pero sana maintindihan ng mga tao na, wala, sobrang love niya si Anessa at ayaw niyang mawala si Anessa at 'yung anak niya sa buhay niya, so he'll do anything and everything to keep his wife," he added.

Airing weeknights after "Muling Buksan ang Puso," "Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" also stars KC Concepcion, John Estrada, Coney Reyes, Tirso Cruz III, Mylene Dizon, Susan Africa, Empress Schuck and Joseph Marco. is the news website of ABS-CBN Corp.

Enrique Gil Is Sexiest Man in Philippines according to Survey in 2013

Enrique Gil is the sexiest man in the Philippines this year 2013 according to survey. He garnered a total of 39,746 votes. He was followed by Xian Lim with 22, 091. Well this is not accurate as this survey is based on popularity. I could not believe that many well proportioned models with good looks were trounced by this guy. Fans are the responsible of this funny result. I know that Enrique is a good actor but really the result is not credible. 
Enrique Gil

Here is the complete article about Enrique Gil:

MANILA – "Muling Buksan Ang Puso" star Enrique Gil was named the "Sexiest Man in the Philippines" for 2013 in an online poll conducted by popular entertainment website Starmometer.

Robert Downey Jr, Highest Paid Actor in 2013

Robert Downey Jr. is one of my favorite actors in Hollywood. I like him in "Chances are". He was nominated in the film "Chaplin" for best actor category in Oscar Academy. He was jailed for drug addiction and later back in acting again. You can't put down a good actor. He was able to regain his popularity by playing different characters. Right now he is the highest paid actor. 

Here is the news from about this article:

Robert Downey Jr. is a hit machine. He’s starred in six movies that have each grossed over $500 million at the box office worldwide. Two of those films, The Avengers and Iron Man 3, each earned over $1 billion. Every studio in town would love to cast him, and now they’ll pay big buck for the privilege. Downey tops our list of Hollywood’s Highest-Paid Actors with an estimated $75 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.
Robert Downey Jr.

It’s hard to remember that just a few years ago, Downey was box office poison, and regarded by the studios as damaged goods. The promising young actor burst onto the scene in the late ’80s with movies like The Pick-Up Artist andLess Than Zero. But drugs quickly dragged him down until he became all but un-insurable. Directors like Robert Altman and Oliver Stone gave him work but for the most part, his career seemed to be a lost cause.

Downey turned that around with Iron Man. The first film in the franchise earned $585 million at the global box office. Overall the franchise has brought in $2.4 billion.
And then there’s The Avengers. The 2012 movie is the third highest-grossing of all time with $1.5 billion at the box office. While the film was nominally an ensemble piece, there was no doubt about who was the real star of the show. As Tony Stark, Downey mixes arrogance, humor and a hint of vulnerability to create a modern-day superhero everyone loves. While it’s probably possible to replace Chris Evans as Captain America, no one else could possibly play Tony Stark.
So Downey was able to secure a nice chunk of the film’s profits for himself. He earned more than anyone else on the movie, including director Joss Whedon. And he’ll get a huge upfront payday once the sequel starts filming in February.
To compile our list, we talked to agents, producers, managers and other people in-the-know to estimate earnings for each star between June 2012 and June 2013. We don’t deduct for taxes, agent fees or any of the other costs of being a celebrity.
While Downey tops this list, he only ranked 20th on our Celebrity 100 list, which is based on earnings and fame. Here we’re only looking at income. Downey ranked behind actor Hugh Jackman on the Celeb 100 because the Australian actor had a much higher social media ratings than Downey. Jackman boasts 2.7 million Twitter followers. Downey avoids social media, even though it would  give him the opportunity to connect directly with the fans who are really his customers.
Jackman ranks third on our Highest-Paid Actors list with an estimated $55 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013. A lot of that money comes from his work as Wolverine in the X-Menfilms. Yet another X-Men movie (the sixth) hits theaters later this month. It’s the second film to exclusively feature Jackman’s Wolverine.
But the actor, who has also appeared on Broadway, showed that he’s more than just an action star this year with Les Miserables. The film was nominated for eight Oscars, including one for Jackman who starred as Jean Valjean. It also made money. Les Miz brought in $438 million on a $61 million budget.
Ranking second on our list between Downey and Jackman is Channing Tatumwith an estimated $60 million in earnings. Tatum is often touted for his looks and his dance skills but he’s also a super smart businessman. He and director Steven Soderbergh self-financed the movie Magic Mike, which meant they didn’t have to get notes from any studio bigwigs and they didn’t have to share any of the film’s sizable profits. The $7 million movie brought in $167 million at the global box office and is a growing business. A Broadway show is in the works as well as a line of bars and a sequel.
Mark Wahlberg ranks fourth with $52 million. His 2012 film Ted was the biggest surprise hit of the year. Directed by fellow Celebrity 100 member Seth MacFarlane, the film cost $50 million to make and earned $550 million at the global box office. That massive profit helped boost his earnings from $27 million last year.
Rounding out the top five is Dwayne Johnson. The former wrestler is now a bona fide movie star who had a film in the top 10 for 10 weeks in a row. His latest, Fast & Furious 6, earned $695 million on a budget of $160 million. We estimate The Rock earned $46 million between June 2012 and June 2013.
