What netizens are looking forward to is how the two will fair in terms of the most number of tweets and of course in the ratings game,. Eat Bulaga will showcase its phenomenal loveteam "AlDub" of Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) where in today's Kalye Serye Episode, Alden will go to Lola Nidora's house to personally court Yaya Dub.

RESUREKSYON: Interesting horror flick with well-developed terror and good performance from the cast

                                 Even before Halloween kicks in,  Regal Entertainment and Reality Entertainment released a mainstream horror thriller  "Resureksyon" with the gorgeous  Isabelle Daza sows fear and terror to moviegoers.  The award-winning actress who provided a solid performance in the movie plays the role of an OFW possessed by an evil spirit to eventually become the leader of a pack of vampires. Director Borgy Torre meticulously executed each scene, especially the ones that would send movie-goers (loud) screaming on end. The tension it built was consistently terrifying. His directorial debut, "Kabisera" was recognized at the Cinema One Festival where he received his first best director award. The story is about  a mom ( Isabelle ) who leaves for abroad to look for greener pasture and them something goes wrong and one day, she is brought back to the country in a coffin.  Then miraculously, mysteriously, she rises from the

Celebrities Play House Games With Billy Crawford Starting This Saturday

ABS-CBN will take fun to a whole new level with its newest talk-comedy-game show “Celebrity Playtime,” which will pit celebrities against each other in exciting and amusing games beginning this Saturday (September 26). Hosted by Billy Crawford, the program will feature celebrity players competing in house party games and winning prizes – all in the spirit of having fun. Billy said the program urges viewers to bond with their friends and family. “These days, most of us rely on smartphones and social media for interaction. We want to encourage viewers to spend time, connect, and have fun with each other the best way – face-to-face,” said Billy. Every week, two teams of celebrity players will play three house party games about popular culture. After the third game, the team that earns the most number of points wins and advances to the bonus round where they can earn an additional cash prize. The fun does not just stop there, as these two teams will play in a road-to-three

ICE CUBE'S SON PLAYS DAD IN “STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON”

Casting for the key roles of a complex, emotional, real-life street drama like Universal Pictures' “Straight Outta Compton” was highly personal and took an immense effort by director F. Gary Gray. Of course, their goal when casting the five coveted roles was the full package of triple-threat performers—who could act, look the part and perform with an unfiltered intensity that channeled N.W.A. members Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and MC Ren. The role of Ice Cube were the first to be cast. As the early development stages of the project began to take shape, Ice Cube could easily envision his then-20-year-old son stepping into the on-screen role of Cube’s younger self. One look at O’Shea Jackson, Jr., and there’s no mistaking he is his father’s son. It’s not just the striking physical similarities between the two, but subtle nuances that genetics can’t deny—like a confident swagger that comes from a deep and strong sense of self. Call it parental intuition, but Ice C

FIT AND FORM: A pampering experience worth returning back

Photo c/o @mercadojenny IG account Premium actress Jennylyn Mercado knows where to put her hard-earned money as she invested it to a business venture that promises to be profitable. "Fit & Form" is located in a strategic place at T. Gener corner K3rd Streets in Kamuning, Quezon City (near Tomas Morato). She leased a three-storey building wherein the first floor  is a showroom that sells goods ( ready-to-wear clothing, branded makeup collection and perfumes)  from online sellers, the second floor is the salon/nail spa,  and the third floor is for massage services.

Career Ups & Downs on Single/Single

Single/Single  is fast gaining ground as the new cable series to watch. So far, this new show is proving itself to be an intriguingly unique combination of a reality show that tackles the life issues and concerns of today’s millennials, and at the same time is an entertaining romp through their day-to-day lives. Last week, Joee (Shaina Magdayao) and Joey (Matteo Guidicelli) confronted domestic and relationship issues that began when one of them brought a partner home to spend the night. The following morning, a confrontation ensues, and trouble crops up. This week, the focus is on their careers. One of Joee’s friends, Ranee is making big strides in her career. She only needs to close two more deals before she wins an award and the chance to meet her ultimate dream guy who is the company’s celebrity brand ambassador. (Guess which good-looking Kapamilya actor and box-office star makes a cameo appearance as that celebrity ambassador in this episode?) By comparison, house

DAKOTA JOHNSON LEADS THE WOMEN OF “BLACK MASS”

Though, in the context of the time, the FBI and the mob were each something of a boys’ club, there are women in the story Warner Bros. Pictures' new thriller “Black Mass” who have a distinct impact on what transpires. Portraying them are Dakota Johnson (“Fifty Shades of Grey”), Juno Temple (“Maleficent”) and Julianne Nicholson (“August: Osage County”). “Black Mass” explores how a deal between ruthless gangster Whitey Bulger (Johnny Depp) and FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) enabled Bulger to expand his criminal empire with complete impunity, as Connolly—blinded by his own ambition—shielded him from investigation, ignoring the rising body count. Dakota Johnson plays Lindsey Cyr, who had been Whitey’s longtime girlfriend and the mother of his only child. “Dakota has a sweetness and an earthiness about her that I wanted in Lindsey to counterbalance Whitey’s more taciturn nature,” says director Scott Cooper. “Lindsey does bring out some level of humanity in Whi

Yaya Dub Endorses An International Cellphone Brand With Lola Nidora

Photo c/o O+USA Facebook page Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub proves to be a trustworthy personality as international cellphone brand, O+USA tagged her as their latest endorser along with Wally Bayola (Lola Nidora). Even if Alden Richards is not part of the endorsement (I think he will be in the future), it seems that he's still part of it considering the note she's holding in the picture. The commercial is dubbed "Forever" which possibly connotes that she's looking for that to happen. So you think Alden will join her in this endorsement soon?
