People of the week

…are talking about

Jessy Mendiola

Jessy Mendiola as Maria Mercedes

She is fortunate enough to snatch the title role in an ABS-CBN television series, Maria Mercedes. Initially thought to be  have been given to Angel Locsin, Jessy now has the role which some other stars can only dream of portraying.  Just so you know, after Darna, Maria Mercedes is the most coveted role on the Kapamilya lot.

Alessandra de Rossi

After her successful debut in a Singapore-produced movie The Maid, she is given another rare opportunity to work with a foreign film crew. Alessandra was personally chosen by a Korean director to star in a movie, which is currently being filmed in Cebu. She has established a good reputation within the film circle, not to mention her being an effective actress hence that’s no longer a surprise.

Rhian Ramos

If twitter has Sharon Cuneta, Instagram has Rhian Ramos. The only difference is that the latter bashes her bashers back in a clever way. Though some perceive Rhian’s gesture as rude and indiscreet, her being tactless on Instagram, interestingly, earned her more followers than haters. We hope that also happens to her in real life.

Sunday All Stars

After Jolina Magdangal, Ogie Alcasid became the second person to quit from GMA7’s “premier musical variety show.” Is this an omen and a bad one for Sunday All Stars? Imagine, they axed a show only to replace it with a program that can’t still measure up to its closest competition.

JM de Guzman

He withdrew from San Pedro Calungsod biopic due to health concerns. Initially, his father told the media that he’s in Australia trying to rest and make up his mind. Rumor has it that the actor is in a rehab center in Tagaytay. There’s no confirmation, though.

Joseph Bitangcol


He was caught in his sports car parked along Marcos Highway sleeping and half naked. Coincidentally, it was the same spot where he figured in a vehicular accident years ago.  The actor said he was just too sleepy after a long drive from a taping. Why would he sleep without his pants on, anyway, and in the car?
