Television and Movie actress Bea Alonzo has finally revealed that she and actor Zanjoe Marudo is already a couple.

Six months na kami. Hindi siya pinlano, nangyari sa bahay ko, after dinner yon. Hindi siya sinet-up. Hindi nga niya ako tinanong, ako na yata ang nagsabi na (handa na ako, tayo na),” Alonzo told and members of entertainment media. The actress added that Marudo was shocked when she finally gave her “yes”.

Alonzo and Marudo has already been a couple for 7 months.

The admission happened in a press conference for Bea’s 24th birthday and 10th year anniversary in showbiz. “I’m already 24, it helps na mayroon ka na ding maturity at feeling ko, I’m entitled na with this,” Alonzo said.

Alonzo said that she loves Marudo’s honesty. “Hindi siya pretentious, he says what he feels. Hindi niya yayakapin ang mga di niya kayang yakapin. Yun ang pinakagusto ko sa kanya. Hindi niya sinasabi na dapat ganito tayo in front of other people, dapat kung ano lang talaga kayo.

For their 7th monthsary, Alonzo and Marudo will be dating in Korea.

KC takes a break; refuses to talk about relationship with Piolo

Television Host and daughter of the Megastar, KC Concepcion recently left for Europe amidst the reports that he and her boyfriend, Piolo Pascual has broken up.

In an interview moments before her flight, Concepcion said she wants to find some time for herself.

Kailangan ko lang ng oras para sa sarili ko…kailangan ko lang ng ilang araw para huminga nang konti, kailangan ko lang itong time na ito para makapag-isip ako, para lang maklaro ang utak ko at para bumalik ako na buo pa rin ako,” she said.

Sa dinami-dami ng nangyayari o nangyari, siguro kailangan ko lang mag-isip talaga. Kailangan ko lang ng konting time para mapag-isipan ‘yung mga nangyayari at para mahanap ko ulit ang sarili ko.

However, Concepcion added that she will also be in Europe to meet her childhood friends.

“Siyempre, comfort zone ko ang Europe. Tamang tama na nandoon din ‘yung mga childhood friends ko. Maganda din na makasama ko ang mga matagal ko nang kaibigan at makapunta sa lugar na makakapagpasaya sa akin,” she explained.

Asked if Pascual knows about her trip, Concepcion replied, “Hindi ko alam.” Concepcion then refused to answer if Pascual is the reason why she is going to Europe and if she and Pascual have parted ways.

It was last month when reports have surfaced that Pascual and Concepcion have ended their relationship.

Actress Andi Eigenmann has chosen the name “Eli” as nickname for her baby.

In an interview with Kris Aquino on ABS-CBN’s Kris TV, Andi said that Eli was going to be the nickname of her baby girl while “Gabrielle” will be the baby’s second name.

Andi said that the second name was given by her mother, Jaclyn Jose.

My mom named her Gabrielle, which will be her second name. I’m still thinking of the first name, but her nickname will be
Eli. So, we can call her Eli now even if the name is not yet final,
” said Eigenmann

Since siya naman ang grandmother and she’s my mom, why not give it to her. I let her give one of the names among the two kasi gusto ko two ang names niya (ng baby ko),” she added.

Gabrielle is the name of Eigenmann’s character, a woman in the military, in ABS-CBN’s defunct television series “Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin.”

According to Baby Names World, a family website, Gabrielle came from a Hebrew word which means “God is my might.”
Eli, meanwhile, is said to mean “My God.”

Eigenmann, who is set to give birth next month, said she has not talked to the father of her child after she decided to keep the baby.

Lorna Tolentino signs contract with TV5; expresses disappointment over Rosario

Despite the strong winds brought about by Typhoon Pedring, the one-year exclusive contract signing of the Grandslam Queen of Philippine Movies, Lorna Tolentino still pushed through at the Batanes function hall of the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel yesterday.

Present in event were Lorna Tolentino’s manager, Lolit Solis, TV5 Head of Creative and Entertainment. Perci Intalan, TV5 Vice President and COO Roberto Barreiro and TV5 CEO and President, Rey Espinosa

Tolentino’s contract states that the veteran actress is set to do 3 soap operas, a movie and a possible hosting stint in a lifestyle show.

Glamorosa muna ang uunahin namin, then another two more mini-seryes,  kasi three months lang yung teleserye. And then one movie, yun ang nakasaad sa contract ko” says Tolentino

During the contract signing, the press also asked why the actress decided to transfer networks. Tolentino said that it was because ABS-CBN offered her 85 working days for a year while TV5 offered her 140 working days for a year. Tolentino added that the differences between the working days were the basis of her decision.

When asked if she felt bad that she was not given the projects that were stipulated in her contract, Ms. Lorna pointed out, “Tapos na yun. Hayaan mo na, kahit na hindi nagkaintindihan, o nakalimutan, or whatever. Wala na akong magagawa. Ang magagawa ko na lang, maghabol sa nasayang na panahon.”

Tolentino was also asked about the issue that she was supposed to topbill the movie Rosario, “oo” Tolentino answered.

Tolentino said that the role was already being offered when Rosario was still in its conceptualization stage. But she wasn’t able to say “yes” because of her exclusive contract with Star Cinema. Lorna also revealed that she deliberately didn’t watch Rosario when it was shown in theaters during the Metro Manila Film Festival.
