Carla Abellana Hosts Drama Anthology "Karelasyon"

  Hindi lang puro sarap at ligaya ang hatid ng pakikipag-relasyon. Parte rin nito ang mga tukso at pagsubok na susukat sa katatagaan at katapatan ng pagsasama. Ngayong Abril, ihahandog ng GMA Public Affairs ang bagong drama anthology na maglalahad ng totoong karanasan ng mga magkarelasyong nagkaron ng matinding hamon sa pagsasama. Mga problema gaya ng pagkakaroon ng kabit; lihim na pagkatao; sobrang selos, ambisyon o bisyo,; problema sa pamilya o katrabaho;  obsesyon sa sex, pera o materyal na bagay.  Sa pamamagitan ng mga pagsasadulang pagbibidahan ng mga Kapuso Stars, at sa panulat at direksyon ng mahusay na independent film writers and directors, ipapakita sa “Karelason” kung anong hirap, sakit, kontrobersya o trahedya ang pinagdaanan at hinaharap ng ilang kababayan natin nang dahil sa pag-ibig! Ang Kapuso actress/ TV host na si Ms. Carla Abellana ang magsisilbing tagapaglahad ng mga kwento… gaya ng storya ni “Minda” (Mylene Dizon), isang babaeng desperada nang magkaron

The heartwarming documentary, “Little Azkals: Pursuit of a World Cup Dream” will have its TV premiere on April 12, Sunday, at  10:30 p.m.  (after “Gandang Gabi Vice”) on ABS-CBN. “Little Azkals” is a film directed by Baby Ruth Villarama (“Jazz in Love”) that documents the experiences of 22 young Filipino footballers (from the ages of 10-11) who were selected out of more than a thousand boys for an elite training in the United Kingdom’s Loughborough University, one of the foremost British institutions in sports education. Their training was made possible through the support of The British Council, the Philippine Football Federation (PFF), Pru Life UK Philippines and Voyage Films. Throughout the three weeks, the boys had to deal with homesickness, the cold  England weather, competing with more seasoned players and other challenges that were too great for their small shoulders.

In the March 14 episode, the show features Art Fair Philippines 2015, which has at least 33 local and international galleries of paintings after paintings, and sculpture after sculpture.

The top-rating primetime soap hasn’t ended yet but its lead stars Kaye Abad and Erich Gonzales are already feeling mixed emotions for their upcoming finale. “Of course I’m sad that the show will end because I will surely miss everyone, even the character of Yvonne,” said Kaye. “I also feel sad, but happy, in a way that show will end with the management very pleased with the outcome and with the fans really supporting us until the end,” said Erich. Both women also admitted that “Two Wives” is a very special soap to them. For Kaye, playing Yvonne is a big break for her career, especially that she is one of the show’s lead stars. “The management took a very big risk for giving me this project,” Kaye playfully quipped.
