Was Angelica Panganiban lying when she claimed she wasn't invited by Heart Evangelista on her wedding?

Was Angelica Panganiban lying when she claimed she wasn't invited by Heart Evangelista on her wedding?

When one Instagram user asked Gawad Tanglaw Best Actress awardee Angelica Panganiban why she wasn't present at the Manila reception of Heart Evangelista's wedding last week, she said that she wasn't invited.


While Heart's Manila wedding reception was happening, Angelica was spotted in the audience wearing a blue lipstick (pun intended) during a fight of Blue Eagles spiker Alyssa Valdez. She is a self-proclaimed fan of Valdez, by the way.

Panganiban and Evangelista were co-stars in ABS-CBN defunct youth-oriented show G-Mik and later in Berks in early 2000s.

But just when everything seemed fine and okay, one fan opened up the issue on Heart Evangelista.

"Di mo ba talaga invited hearty si angelica?", asked one Instagram user to Mrs. Chiz Escudero to which the latter replied with, "I did she said she can't make it kasi may trip sila to Japan:)".


Uh-oh! Do we smell a war brewing? No? Not yet? Was Heart aware of Angelica's statement prior to answering that fan question? Did Heart take it personal when Angelica attended one of Marian Rivera's bridal showers? 'Coz you know, Heart and Marian have some kind of "bridal wars".

Too many questions but... Just asking...

On its second day, Crazy Beautiful You opened more theaters across the nation to accommodate more fans. From 178 theaters yesterday, it rose up to 250 today, Mico Del Rosario (AdProm Manager) posted on his Instagram account.

Julia Barretto posts photo with father Dennis Padilla on Instagram

Julia Barretto posts photo with father Dennis Padilla on Instagram

Kapamilya teen actress Julia Barretto posted on her Instagram account @juliabarretto a photo of her with father Dennis Padilla. She captioned it with, "Papa being his comedian self".

The photo which received more than 26,000 likes within two hours since it was posted elicited mixed reactions from netizens. Fans of the teen actress said they were happy and wished that the good relationship with her father to continue.

Others were doubting and questioned the sincerity.

"Haha biglang ok na oh. Bka nman pakitang tao lng yaaaan", said one follower.

"Sana true yan hnd lng palabas idol kita @juliabarretto pero nung hnd m pinansin papa m in one event inanfollow kta kaya ngaun follow n ulit. Father is always a father", said another

Recall that the two headlined several news articles on print, broadcast and social media when Julia decided to push for her real family name "Baldivia" to be dropped and adapt her mother's (Marjorie Barretto) last name instead.

Julia found herself in the midst of negative criticisms from netizens since then and most recently got involved with another snubbing incident with her father in a party.

Although we're not sure when the photo was taken, is it safe to assume that the father and daughter had kissed and made up? Is it genuine or they are up on something? What are your thoughts dear PSD readers?

Direk Joey Reyes halted by security personnel from leaving Uniqlo shop after alarm was triggered

Film and tv director Jose Javier Reyes was stopped by some security personnel after the alarm was triggered upon his exit of Uniqlo branch in The Block of SM North EDSA.

Reyes took to his Twitter account @DirekJoey on Wednesday, February 25 the incident and expressed his disappointment and embarrassment he suffered from the store. According to him, the cashier forgot to take out the security tab from one of his purchases which made the alarms ringing on his way out.

This prompted the security of the store to search for his bag and his receipt be verified.

"The embarrassment of having my bag searched, my receipt verified because the stupidity of your employee tells me, Uniqlo,that I love H&M !" H&M is also another apparel store which came from Sweden.

Kathryn Padilla trends worlwide on Twitter

Kathryn Padilla trends worlwide on Twitter


Showbiz portal PEP.ph made a mistake on Twitter during the live blog of Crazy Beautiful You's premiere night in SM Megamall last night. We quote:

"#PEPspotted Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Padilla join their fans in watching their movie..."

Instead of Kathryn Bernardo, PEP tweeted Kathryn Padilla which made several KathNiels (fan group's name) happy... most probably shedding tears of joy. Chos

We're not sure how many re-tweets, favorites, and quotes it made since it has been deleted but the fact that it trended worldwide means something.


The incident reached Daniel Padilla's knowledge and told the fans

DJ: Sigaw nyo I Love You Kathryn
Fans: I Love You Kathryn
DJ thanked the fans then faced Kathryn
DJ: Sigaw nyo I Love Kathryn Padilla
Fans: We love you Kathryn Padilla

KathNiel Fellas ‏@KathNielsFellas: Kath's reaction after reading Kathryn Padilla Very Priceless! Priceless!

KathNiels definitely had a field day enjoying that sweet mistake

Christina Aguilera mimics rival Britney Spears

Christina Aguilera mimics rival Britney Spears

Children of the 90s and early 2000s will definitely relate to this. Christina Aguilera guested on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show and played Wheel of Musical Impressions.

Both Christina and host Jimmy will push the button to generate a random artist and a song which the artist had popularized, then mimic the artist's voice.

Christina was able to randomly pick Cher, her old rival Britney Spears, and Shakira. Christina pulled it off but it was with Britney which would make you hit the Play button more and more as she sounded like her once rival singer.

For Jimmy Fallon's part, he got to impersonate David Bowie (Grand Old Flag) and Michael Macdonald (Itsy Bitsy Spider).

Is this Gerald Anderson and Maja Salvador's version of CharDawn's 'I-Dawn Zulueta Mo Ako'?

The term "I-Dawn Zulueta Mo 'Ko" went viral after the 90s hit love team of Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta (ChardDawn) guested on Gandang Gabi Vice. Vice Ganda asked the former sweethearts to relive their remarkable scene from the movie Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit where Dawn was lifted up in the air by Goma.

Since then, the act went viral and was imitated by netizens. Even Kim Chiu and Xian Lim had their own version of I-Dawn Zulueta Mo 'Ko when they visited the US for a concert.

Last Sunday, Feb. 22, real life couple Gerald Anderson and Maja Salvador did a stunt-filled and breathtaking Chandelier dance number in ASAP.

Gerald Anderson and Maja Salvador's version of CharDawn's 'I-Dawn Zulueta Mo Ako'?

Is this their own version of I-Dawn Zulueta Mo Ako? We say, it's a tough act to follow.

Lea Salonga defends decision to place higher score to Leah than Timmy

Some followers are questioning the Broadway Diva's judgment on giving a higher score to Leah Patricio than the booted out contestant Timmy Pavino.

In the live semi-finals of The Voice PH which happened on Sunday, February 22, Timmy Pavino was sent home after losing to Leah Patrcio with only 0.58% deifference from their respective scores. Salonga scored a 45-55 score in favor of Patricio while the audience voted 54.42% - 45.58% in favor of Pavino.

A difference of 0.58% was seen from their respective scores which gave their coach a reaction like this:


and this

On Twitter, one follower noted how Salonga's 'misjudgment' affects the overall score and turn the tables for her favored contestant. User @mayerelle brought up the Mitoy-Rada competition from Season 1 to which Salonga strongly denied


Salonga added that "I wish people checked their facts before posting on Twitter. Last season I scored 55-45 in favor of the artist that got booted off."

Anyways, Happy Birthday Ms. Lea "Broadway Diva" Salonga. Still fierce and graceful at 44.

Kim Chiu comes in defense of Xian Lim

Kim Chiu comes in defense of Xian Lim

Kapamilya actress Kim Chiu came in defense of perennial screen partner Xian Lim after the latter was put in hot water a few days ago.

Chiu took to her Twitter account @prinsesachinita on Saturday, Feb. 21 and called on the attention of netizens not to judge (the actor) especially that they were not in the same place when it happened.

"Just a thought.. wag po sana tayo mag judge agad ng tao, lalo na po, if wala tayo mismo doon..", Kim tweeted with an image of a quotation written on it that says,
"There are three sides to every story. My side of the story with the information I have. Your side of the story with the information you have. And the side of the story that has all the information."

Recall that Lim got involved in a controversy involving Albay's Governor Joey Salceda after he allegedly refuse to wear the t-shirt and accept the coffee table book as a souvenir during his visit to the province for Fiesta Tsinoy Albay. Lim immediately clarified and denied the issue.

Xian Lim clarifies issue which Gov. Joey Salceda accused of him

Xian Lim was deeply upset about an article which quoted him saying "I am not here to promote Albay" which he vehemently denied as it was something he would never say.

In a Facebook post of Albay Governor Joey Salceda, Lim was slammed by the governor for allegedly refusing to promote the province. Salceda even brought up how Xian's talent fee ballooned from PHP 75,000 in 2011 to P350,000 this year.


On his Twitter account, Lim clarified that it was not the promotion of the province he refused to do but  the t-shirt they wanted him to wear. A coffee table book which came with a t-shirt was handed on to him when he visited the province for Fiesta Tsinoy Albay. According to him,

“My exact words to her were 'Sorry po, hindi ko maisuot yung tshirt kasi baka magka-conflict sa clothing endorsement ko. Pasensya na po,'” saad ni Xian.

But words were different when it reached the author of the book, "Ayaw daw niya." Lim insisted that he loves Albay and will always be happy to be there with its good people. In the end, he apologized to the governor and the people of Albay for a misunderstanding between them.

“I deeply apologize to Gov. Salceda and the people of Albay for the misunderstanding about my reasons for refusal to wear the t shirt.”


In a separate post, Lim also stressed that he was raised by his parents well, be generous to everyone and that his management taught him about decency and humility. This was in connection to Salceda's Facebook post accusing him of not being raised well or  that he was on something.
