Eat Bulaga, Dragon Lady, Love You Two, and The Crown Princess outscored against rival programs from ABS-CBN
GMA Network’s latest offering ‘Dahil sa Pag-Ibig’ is slowly attracting television viewers since its pilot episode on May 20, 2019. The drama series replaced ‘Inagaw na Bituin’ in the afternoon prime line up. From the 5.2% viewership rating it earned for its premiere episode, the show’s rating rose to 5.6% the following day. Even so, its rival show ‘Los Bastardos’ kept its lead, earning a larger audience share than ‘Dahil sa Pag-Ibig.’
The newest Kapuso series is top-billed by the fresh team-up of Sanya Lopez and Benjamin Alves. It is a drama series that depicts the lives of OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) abroad, and the sacrifices they make just to sustain the needs of their loved ones and to give their families a brighter future. The drama revolves around an OFW who lands in jail after his involvement in a crime and his wife who would do everything just to earn the blood money needed to release him even if it means losing her dignity.
Its rival program ‘Los Bastardos,’ on the other hand, is a family drama series that premiered on October 15, 2018. Now on book 3, the drama series revolves in the Cardinal Family that aims to keep their bond intact despite the tragedies they have experienced. Internal and external conflicts test the strength of the family. The series is based on the Filipino pocketbook Cardinal Bastards by Vanessa. The series stars veteran actor Ronaldo Valdez, multi-awarded actress Gloria Diaz, and Kapamilya hunks Jake Cuenca, Joseph Marco, Albie Casiño, Marco Gumabao, and Joshua Colet.

Along with Endrinal’s post were pictures of Bondoc from his past shows on ABS-CBN. Bondoc was a frequent performer on ASAP, which was once headed by Endrinal, and served as a regular celebrity mentor on It’s Showtime.
The singer fired back at Endrinal’s post as he clarified things about his controversial post.
“Sir Deo, boss, amo… linawin lang natin.
“1) Gratitude to the many good people in a certain network has NO-THING TO DO with the malicious news and info and alleged harassment cases that occur in its rooms;
“2) It also has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO with the alleged unlawful transfer of a network’s ownership to the unwarranted benefit of a few individuals. That is for the courts to decide. And the grant or extension of a permit is the government’s prerogative.
“3) Lastly, jobs need not be lost if there is a change of ownership. Bakit tatanggalin ang mga walang kasalanan? And if illegally removed, meron namang legal recourse ang employees.
“Are you saying that for example- KUNG MAPATUNAYAN nga na hindi makatarungan ang pag-ari ng isang indibidwal sa isang network, kakampi pa rin kayo sa lumabag sa batas? Tanong lang po, boss sir amo chief Deo, boss, amo…”
Bondoc also posted about Enrico Santos, Executive Producer at ABS-CBN Film Productions Inc., who allegedly harassed him. The singer clarified that this was not true and felt sorry for dragging the latter’s name in the controversy.
“Parang Game of Thrones final season yan, ang opinion ng mga writers and directors and ang opinion ng mga fans iba. You won’t really know kung ano ang nangyayari or the full story unless you’re in the studio eh. Kasi edited na lahat yun so marami pang kuwentuhan na nangyayari.Sometimes pinapakanta pa ng another song, sometimes na-fi-filter out talaga,” he shared to PUSH.
Christian was a finalist of Star in A Million, winning fourth place in 2003.
The 37-year-old balladeer shared some advice that worked for him when he was a contestant himself. “What I’ve learned is eto, mahirap na lesson even for me, there’s always someone better than me. there’s always a better singer, there’s always a better actor. So it’s just really who will fit what you’re looking for. Who will fit the bill kung anong hinahanap ng show, ng channel. I didn’t win a singing contest. But it’s what you do after. It’s what you do in life. That’s the lesson for me, don’t stop. Kahit natanggal kayo sa contest, don’t stop. There are other avenues, there are other ways. So talagang I feel for the judges kasi mahirap talaga yung trabaho nila,” he said.
One of the biggest responsibilities about being a judge is how to not demoralize the contestants.
“Naging mahirap talaga kasi yung mga contestants, that’s their dream eh. Their dream is to make it tapos you tell them, ‘No, not yet.’ or parang as best as you can say, ‘You’re not good enough yet.’ Dapat may‘yet.’ Kasi everyone will improve later on eh. Huwag mo na lang sabihin na, ‘You’re not good enough.’ Kasi everyone is good. Basta kailangan mo lang mag-train. Iba ang lesson if you’re lazy. So parang dapat lagi you should do your best. Pero if your best is not good enough yet, there’s still time to train. Try again. Try again next year. Kasi iba iba yung levels of growth natin eh. Baka yung iba a year ahead,” he explained.
After Jimmy Bondoc’s rant against ABS-CBN, celebs show support for the Kapamilya Network
ABS-CBN celebrities, journalists, staff, netizens go on social media to show support for network
Jimmy Bondoc’s name was mentioned several times in two days by Vice Ganda on ‘It’s Showtime’
Comedian Vice Ganda on Saturday (May 25) mentioned Jimmy Bondoc’s name several times on the noontime ‘It’s Showtime.’
During the BidaMan segment, Vice was asked to read a spiel from the teleprompter but instead of saying Star Magic, he mentioned Jimmy Bondoc. “Ang mananalong Bidaman ay magiging instant Kapamilya na rin dahil magkakaroon na rin siya ng management contract na ima-manage ni Jimmy Bondoc!”
When Anne Curtis asked, “Sino nga po ba ang sumagot ng ‘Prinsipyo?'” during the KapareWho segment, Vice replied, “Si Jimmy Bondoc,” then laugh hysterically.
Like Jimmy Bondoc, ‘It’s Showtime’ hosts Vice Ganda and Mariel Rodriguez are also proud staunch supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte. They were the celebrities who openly supported Duterte’s candidacy during the 2016 National Elections.
Bondoc also became one of the judges of ‘It’s Showtime’ in the past. He previously shared the president’s thank you message and birthday wish to Vice Ganda aired ‘It’s Showtime’ last March 30.
Kris Aquino is a non-full supporter of Liberal Party during the 2019 election
She voted only four from the Otso Diretso senatorial candidate
Kris is done paying for the “sins” of some Liberal Party Members
Kris Aquino was very supportive of her brother, former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, during his presidency. However, she did not fully support the Liberal Party during the recent 2019 elections.
A week after the election, Kris took to social media and shared with her fans that she voted for eight candidates for senator, but only chose four from opposition slate Otso Diretso. The other two were pro-administration and the last two were independent, though she did not name any names.
“I voted not along party lines BUT voted based on my personal choice because after all that’s one of democracy’s principles, 1 person, 1 vote,” She said via Instagram on May 19.
Netizens reacted to Kris’s post and alled her out for not supporting Otso Diretso.
A post shared by Kris Aquino (@krisaquino) on May 18, 2019 at 5:58am PDT
“We’ve done so much work defending LP, you and your family from bashers,” one netizen commented. “The least you can do is set aside your personal issues and think of the implications of not having a strong and solid opposition in this circus [government].”
“People are dying and you voted for the admin lapdogs. Wow,” the netizen added.
The Queen of All Media was quick to defend herself and said the Liberal Party is not synonymous to her family. She pointed out that it was only her brother among the five siblings who was affiliated with the party, adding it is sickening to be held responsible for the sins of some party members.
“We never enriched ourselves, we didn’t do a precursor to President Trump,” she said. “Nobody from our immediate family was appointed or held a position, we never even joined my brother in any of his foreign trips so as not to be accused of impropriety.”
She stressed that this was a personal issue and she is done keeping quiet in paying for the sins of other Liberal Party members.
“Tapos na kong manahimik sa pagbayad para sa mga kasalanan at pagkukulang nung mga ibang LP nung nabigyan sila ng pagkakataon ng mga botante (I am done keeping silent in paying for the sins and shortcomings of some Liberal Party members when they were given the chance by voters),” she said. “I am not my siblings, I won’t quietly take the punches because the truth is, we took the hits for the shortcomings of others.”
Manuel Quezon III, who had served as undersecretary of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office under the Aquino administration, was among those who called Kris out on Twitter following her social media post, with a caption, “Gaga.”
The cast of the said series was overwhelmed by the high ratings and support of the fans. ‘Sahaya’ lead star Bianca Umali became even more enthusiastic to portray her character.
With the rising popularity of the series, Umali is sometimes addressed by fans as Sahaya instead of calling out her real name. When asked about the matter, the actress revealed that she feels flattered and doesn’t take offense if they do.
“Hindi po, masaya pa po ako. Ibig sabihin, pinapanood nila ako, kami, kaya alam nila ang mga pangalan ng characters namin. Inspiration ko po iyon dahil pinaghihirapan namin ang pagganap sa aming mga role,” Umali shared.
The actress also gave a hint about the anticipated events of the series, like Sahaya undergoing drastic changes in her life.
In the recent episodes, Sahaya received a makeover from Lindsay(Ashley Ortega) in a preparation for her school visit in Manila. Looking at Sahaya’s transformation,(Migo Adecer)Jordan’s heart was completely captivated. The video of this scene trended on YouTube, garnering over 1 million views.

Yearly, the most prestigious national beauty pageant in the country–Binibining Pilipinas showcases not just the beauty, wits and talents but also the forms or the figures in summer wear of all the candidates via its Grand Parade of Beauties.
Today, May 25, the 40 beauties from across the Philippine regions paraded in their floral summer wear via a motorcade around.
Each candidate garbed in festive-inspired designs with touches of Gumamela flowers, fitting enough to rival the annual Flores de Mayo or Flowers of May, which is a takeoff from the traditional parade of long, formal Filipiniana gowns. Transporting each of the candidates around Araneta Center is via Miata Club’s roadsters.
Together with the 40 stunning candidates, the reigning beauty queens Binibining Pilipinas-Globe Michelle Gumabao, Binibining Pilipinas-Grand International Eva Patalinjug, Binibining Pilipinas-Supranational Jehza Huelar,Miss International first runner-upAhtisa Manalo, and Miss Intercontinental Karen Gallman were part of the parade. Only Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray is not able to join the festivities.
The parade kicked off near Novotel Manila Araneta Center and went through the Center via Gen. McArthur, to EDSA in front of Farmers Market and Farmers Plaza, and turned right to Aurora Boulevard. It again entered Gen. Aguinaldo, passed through New Frontier Theater and Gateway Tower. It went on straight to Ali Mall and around P. Tuazon Avenue. Its last route was via Times Square as it headed towards Gen. Aguinaldo to finally have its endpoint at Gateway Pavillion beside Smart Araneta Coliseum Green Gate.
All 40 candidates introduced themselves as they reached the makeshift stage at the pavilion to which the selected and invited press were on standby. They were all joined by Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated chairMrs. Stella Marquez-Araneta for a photo opportunity.
