Coco Martin Bench The Naked Truth Controversy

Coco Martin has released his official statement about the controversial segment, "The Animal Within Me," in the recent Bench fashion show titled "The Naked Truth". The statement was released through his legal counsel, Atty. Lorna Kapunan in a press conference held Tuesday afternoon, September 30. 

In the statement released to the media, Coco Martin expressed his apology and requested the public for understanding. Coco equally felt bad about the incident and saddened at the thought he unwittingly offended the public.

Further, Coco and his camp explained they were not involved in the conceptualization of the production of The Naked Truth show nor the segment "The Animal Within Me" as he has an existing contract with Bench to model its apparels and to oblige him to appear in fashion shows.

In the end, Coco humbly asked for the public's understanding and assured he will no longer allow to be obliged to participate in a similar sensitive portrayal.

Here's the full statement:

Jodi Sta. Maria considers falling for co-star Richard Yap

"Kung wala, bakit naman hindi diba?"

This was Jodi Sta Maria's reply when asked if there's a possibility of her falling in love with co-star Richard Yap at the presscon of "Be Careful With My Heart".

The actress, however, made it clear that only if they both weren't in a relationship before the show started. As everyone knows, Jodi is happily in love with Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla while Richard "Ser Chief" is happily married with two kids.

Richard and Jodi worked together for more than two years under one "roof" in ABS-CBN's longest teleserye of recent times Be Careful With My Heart whose days are numbered ending in 45 days.

So with that, what could be the themse song that would fit them? "Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang" or "Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin"? Aminin,... they reallly look good together as a couple. If only....

Angel Locsin undergoes chiropractic treatment for misaligned spine?

Not many people know that kapamilya actress Angel Locsin has problem with her spine until she posted about this on her Instagram account Thursday night September 25.

Locsin posted a photo of her with Dr. Marc Anton Cancio, owner of Cancio Chiropractic in San Juan,  and she captioned it with
"Thanks Doc Cancio for fixing my back & neck! Ready na ulit sirain, hehešŸ™ˆ #CancioChiropractic"
According to the article posted on Cancio Chirpractic facebook page, Chiropractic is a health care discipline that puts emphasis on the fundamental structure of the body, which is the spinal column, as it relates to function of the body. A properly aligned spine is essential for it to function at its best.

A doctor of chiropractic specializes in spinal hygiene by ensuring proper spinal alignment. Your chiropractor can help prevent early spine decay or arthritis; achieve proper posture in children and young adults; and increase mobility and comfort in older adults. By promoting a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise along with spinal hygiene, chiropractic can help patients achieve their overall health goals.

Locsin, who had been to lots pf physical stresses for almost a decade, st arring in several action fantasy series had to cope with such physical illness. Soon, Locsin will start filming for her reprisal of the popular local heroine donning the two-piece red suit of Darna in movie.

Better to have her physical health checked and ensure her safety first.

Derek Ramsay's son writes Judge a letter. And it's so heartbreaking!

Derek Ramsay's son writes Judge a letter. And it's so heartbreakiing!

Austin Ramsay, the son of Derek Ramsay with Mary Christine Jolly, has submitted a hand written letter to the judge hearing his parents' case against each other. In the letter, Austin described Derek Ramsay as a liar and an evil person, how obssessed his father to cars and money. He also wrote that he wishes his father would go to jail.

Here's the full letter. (Just keep a tissue near you.)

Dear Judge,

I am very sad with what is happening to me and my mom. I don't want to experience all this I am just a kid. I don't deserve this. I have been reading a lot of terrible things on the internent (sic) and I just want Derek to stop making my life so difficult. I never call him dad because he doesn't deserve it. No matter how many presents he buys me won't change what he has done to me and my wonderful mom. I hate him for abandoning me and my mom. He never supported me. He is not a good father. Derek has so many girlfriends and I read that he even bought one of them a car. Derek is so obsessed with money and cars more than his family. Don't you know that family is more important? Why didn't he get me and my mom a car. Am I not important too? I hate seeing my mom suffer. She works soooo (sic) hard to take care of me. I can see how much she loves me. My mom is the best person in the universe. She tries to give me the best life I will never leave her. I cried every time I think about her growing old. I don't want her to ever leave me. I feel pain in my heart when I think of how awful Derek is. My mom is such a good person, what is his problem! I just want Derek to leave us alone, so that we can get on with our lives. I cry all the time, he never came to any of my school activities while other dads were there, I can't focus well in school because of him. I cry when I see my mom cry. Derek is a liar. He always lies. He lied saying I was not his kid, why would a father do that. What did I do wrong? When I see him he tries to get information out of me about my mom. It makes me feel uncomfortable. But I know what he is trying to do. I'm a smart boy. He always talks about his cars and his six pack abs and never asks about me. Why do I have to be forced to see him when I don't want to. My grandma told me that though Derek is big it doesn't mean he is grown up. I never want to be like him. My mom made a mistake marrying such an evil person and I wish he would go to jail so he would finally know what it feels like to be treated with no respect. The truth will prevail not his lies.

Yours truly,
