Chikkaness Kapamilya Updates: Gerald Anderson, Sarah Geronimo, and Kim Chiu

--> Gerald Anderson learned an important lesson: You cannot please everybody. With all the intrigues that's coming his way, Gerald Anderson is on his toes in dealing with all of these. With his six years in showbiz, he's taking away with him a lesson and that is, you cannot please everybody. In an article in, Gerald said, “You know, lumalaki ako na gusto ko … lalo na po ‘yung mga tao sa paligid ko … I want to keep everybody happy, please everybody. Pero sa mga natutunan ko sa loob ng six years sa showbiz hindi magagawa ‘yan no matter [how hard you try]. It doesn’t matter kung sino ka, may kasalanan ka man o wala, you cannot please everybody.” Though he only have Instagram as his social media tool, he still can't help but read some negative remarks from bashers. He's doing his best not to waste his time reading it rather thanking those who share compliments about his work. Do you like how Gerald deals with showbiz intrigues?
