Did The Legal Wife inspire The Rich Man's Daughter's title card?

Did The Legal Wife inspire The Rich Man's Daughter's title card?

We could not help but notice the glaring similarity of the title card of Marian Rivera's upcoming series on GMA "The Rich Man's Daughter" to Angel Locsin's 2014 hit drama "The Legal Wife:.

The fonts used, the styling, and positions were almost identical. Did the latter inspire the former or was it just pure coincidence? Just asking...

Is Bea Alonzo pregnant?

Is Bea Alonzo pregnant?

We were surprised to find out this morning that ABS-CBN prime actress Bea Alonzo is "pregnant with boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo".

Some netizens were asking if she is. Our search led us to a website that has an automated gathering of popular news articles throughout the web. The article used for Alonzo's pregnancy rumors was an article referring to Cristine Reyes prior to her admission.

So how did the rumor start? Our suspicion is that Bea has been out of the television screens since her last soap "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon" ended its run last October 2014. Since then, little news circulated about her including the incident when she was hospitalized.

Currently, Alonzo is doing Crossroads movie under Star Cinema. She plays a lawyer who gets involved with a married man played by Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta as his wife

Atom Araullo goes geeky over a popular meme

Atom Araullo goes geeky over a popular meme

We were in awe after ABS-CBN news reporter Atom Araullo posted on his Twitter account about him being featured in a meme.

As what any average Filipino knows, several atoms, being the basic element of a chemical element, compose a single molecule as pictured below.

But the former "Sine Skwela" kid has a different view on this.

"For the record, this seems to represent a lattice more than a molecule. #LatticeAraullo #patol"

His explanation of the photo made our jaws dropped and our nose bleed. WTF is a lattice? So we did a little research and found out that a lattice is "a regular repeated three-dimensional arrangement of atoms, ions, or molecules in a metal or other crystalline solid".

So for clarity,  we made a comparative representation of a lattice and a molecule.

Lattice vs molecule

So guys, do it the right way.

Atom "Guy In the Rain" Araullo just made us love him even more! ♥

Watch: Tutti Caringal recreates Adam Levine's body tattoos on YFSF

Watch: Tutti Caringal recreate Adam Levine's body tattoos on YFSF

Tutti Caringal of 6 Cycle Mind, one of eight performers of ABS-CBN's weekeend celebrity competition Your Face Sounds Familiar hosted by Billy Crawford.

Caringal, who placed at the bottom rank during last week's competition promised to make it up for this week by imitating world's Sexiest Man Alive for 2014  - Maroon 5's main man Adam Levine singing Moves Like Jagger.

Tutti Caringal as Adam Levine

If other performers dress up to look like the celebrities they imitate, Tutti "dressed down" as Levine loves to perform semi-naked.

According to host Crawford, Tutti, made an effort to cover his own body tattoos and replace it with that of Levine's.

Did he live up to his promise?

Well, we think he did especially that he also carried that confidence and put away his inhibitions to take off his shirt during his performance on YFSF stage.

Watch the video above to see him gyrate just like Adam Levine does.

Willie Revillame signs airtime contract with GMA7; to host WowoWin on a dead timeslot

Willie Revillame signs airtime contract with GMA7; to host WowoWin on a dead timeslot

Willie Revillame has ended an almost a year of speculations that he's moving to GMA7. The TV Host has officially signed an airtime contract with the Kapuso Network on Friday noon, March 20.

An airtime contract doesn't hold Revillame as network's talent but as a blocktimer. Blocktimers produce shows to be aired on a network which they pay for an airtime. According to reports, the TV host will pay the network P2 million per week for his show, which will reportedly air every Sunday from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

GMA7's CEO Atty. Gozon expressed his delight for Revillame's move and admitted that the former rival from ABS-CBN has a very large following.

"We are pleased to have Willie Revillame's program in the Network. Willie has a very large following. Through our partnership with WBR Entertainment, GMA Network will be a part of the long awaited return of Willie Revillame on television." 

Revillame, whose career started on GMA7 via "Lunch Date" felt it was like a homecoming. "Dito naman ako nagsimula sa GMA. Kumbaga, nag-abroad lang ako. Ngayon, nagbabalik na ko,"

WowoWin, the title of Revillame's soon to hosted show is a weekly program which will start airing on April 26, Sunday from 3:30-5:00pm.

Hmm... doesn't sound like a good timeslot huh. Your thoughts?

Wolff wrote on his post,

“I've seen some crazy things in my life. I regularly travel on planes for work, but this has got to be probably one of the most ridiculous things that I have experienced."

"A certain Filipina actress, past her prime may I add, decided to use our reserved seats on the plane. After being asked to move by flight attendants, the captain and even ground security, she agreed to go to her seat (after 30 mins. of cursing)."

"Kept claiming she was some sikat na star dati with initials M.M. She smelled like a beer brewery, you just knew something was gonna happen.... "

"Anyway, half way to our destination to talk to our programmer in Mindanao, this "actress" decided to curse continually at my friend. She was given 2 warning cards by flight attendants, but didn't stop. She punched my friend and the flight attendants and had to be restrained. "

"The captain announced: 'Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologise, but we have to go back to Manila due to one unruly passenger'"

"This video is of the initial offloading of this lovely character... Please note 20 ground staff were used just to offload one person. Fines include 500,000pesos and 3 years imprisonment #WelcomeToTheGoodLife"

OMG! Paulo Avelino and Jasmine Curtis-Smith spotted dating?

Paulo Avelino and Jasmine Curtis-Smith spotted dating?

Are Paulo Avelino and Jasmine Curtis-Smith dating? If we will base it in this photo which surfaced over the weekend, showing the two seated beside each other with a glass of wine, the answer is a resounding 'Yes!'.

But ain't it too fast for Anne Curtis's younger sister to move past of her relationship with Sam Concepcion? For Paulo Avelino's part, he denied that he had broken up with KC Concepcion because they never admitted they were a couple. Really?!

We just realized that there's something common between them. It's the common last name of their respective previous relationships - CONCEPCION. Kc? Sam?
