Minute To Win It host Luis Manzano visited Camp Crame this morning to submit voluntarily himself for drug test.

But the TV host claimed he tested POSITIVE on one thing...

"PERO SA KAGWAPUHAN, POSTIVE DAW TALAGA AKO.", said Luis in the caption.




The act was done in connection to government's efforts to fight illegal drugs and President Duterte's warning  to release the names of celebrities involved in the use of drugs. Other actors who had submitted for drug tests and tested negative are Jake Cuenca, Diego Loyzaga, and Enrique Gil.

Other actors are expected to follow suit.

How did TiII I Met You's pilot episode fare in the ratings game?

How did TiII I Met You's pilot episode fare in the ratings game?

ABS-CBN's newest primetime series Till I Met You which stars James Reid and Nadine Lustre had its pilot episode on Monday night, August 29.

Its hashtag #TIMYLoveBegins set the Twitter on fire and made a record of over 1.5 million tweets, also topping the worldwide trends for that hour.

But how did Till I met You fare in the ratings game?

Based on the latest tv ratings released by AGB Nielsen, TIMY won by a narrow margin against Korean drama Descendants of the Sun - its rival show from GMA. TIMY recorded 21% while DotS had 20.2% on AGB Urban Luzon.

Menwhile, in Kantar Media's data, TIMY has 11% margin away from DotS. The JaDine series had 28.2% against DotS's 17.2%.

The challenge now to TIMY  is to keep the lead against its rival and equal the tv ratings which its predecessor "Dolce Amore" left.

Baron Geisler plays gay role on TV with Derrick Monasterio as his lover

Baron Geisler plays gay role on TV with Derrick Monasterio as his lover

With his bad boy image, one wouldn't have a thought that controversial actor Baron Geisler will be playing gay role on television.

But yes, he is.

In GMA7's Saturday afternoon drama anthology "Karelasyon", Baron plays a closet gay character named John Lloyd. Unknown to his family and workmates, John Lloyd is gay - a secret he has kept hidden for fear of being disrespected by the people around him.

He'll then meet and become friends with JP (played by Derrick Monasterio). JL expects the friendship he has with JP will reach more than that. But behind the innocent look of JP is a dark motive against him.

Karelasyon is being hosted by Carla Abellana under GMA News and Public Affairs' production. The episode also stars Elizabeth Oropesa, Mikoy Morales, and Maey Bautissta under the direction of Adolf Alix Jr.

Spotted: Angelica Panganiban and Paulo Avelino dating?

Spotted: Angelica Panganiban and Paulo Avelino dating?

Are Angelica Panganiban and Paulo Avelino dating?  The photo was posted on Twitter by @Joyzstylist on Friday afternoon, August 26.

So, are they dating? Yes. Probably. Most likely. But they don't look chummy or sweet, noh? Do they?

It's because the photo was taken during a scene they're shooting for Star Cinema's upcoming movie "The Unmarried Wife".

The Unmarried Wife also stars Dingdong Dantes. The movie serves as his reunion movie with Angelica Panganiban whom he had first worked with via One More Try in 2012.

The movie is being helmed by Maryo J. Delos Reyes and expected to be shown in theaters later this year.

James Reid supports government's war on drugs but takes Robin Padilla's stand on issue about naming celebrities

James Reid supports government's war on drugs but takes Robin Padilla's stand on issue about naming celebrities

In the press conference held for James Reid's new endorsement on Friday, August 26, the Till I Met You lead actor was asked for his reaction regarding the government's war against illegal drugs.

For James, who admits he loves going to festivals and parties, he sees no problem with such act as he has nothing to be afraid of because he's not doing anything wrong.

Just recently, the Philippine National Police led by PNP Dir. Gen. Bato Dela Rosa, met with club owners in Taguig and Makati City to ink a deal  with the police force to show support for its war against illegal drugs.

When asked if he favors Pres. Duterte's plan to reveal the list of celebrities who are into illegal drugs, James cited actor Robin Padilla's stand on the issue.

“I think Robin Padilla already spoke out, saying na to think about talking to them first before, like, ruining people's lives.”

“I think, yeah, I'm more in favor of that.”

James also said he's more than willing to submit for a drug test “I've heard that's already happening. I guess that's all for the better.”.

But before we get to see the movie in full come September 14, here are some of the most memorable lines from the movie's trailer.

Kung alam ko lang, paulit-ulit ko na sanang sinabi sa 'yo na 'Mahal Kita'

A man whose love remains unfinished

Ely: Celine...
Mia: Hindi ako si Celine


A woman whose life is yet to unfold



One place will bring them together

Ely: Bayaran mo na lang ako pag nakaluwag ka.
Mia: Gracias



Mia: Alam mo ikaw, gusto mo lang talaga halikan kita eh.


Ely: Baka ikaw ang gustong magpa-kiss sa akin, Mia


But one name will keep them apart



Ely: Baka sakaling tumigil ang walang katapusang sana. Para hindi niya makalimutan na mahal ko siya.


Will the love they find be enough to let their story begin


Mia: Naisip ko dati to move on.
Ely: Move on from what?
Mia: From everything that's keeping you from moving on.



Ely: Stop acting like you know my pain. Stop acting like you own it.



Ely: Hindi ikaw si Celine. And you will never be Celine.


Star Cinema proudly presents an Olivia M. Lamasan film.  Starring Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla





Ely: Mia, mahal kita.
Mia: You don't have to.


Mia: Huwag mo akong mahalin dahil mahal kita. Mahalin mo ako dahil mahal mo ako.


Mia: Because that is what I deserve.

ABS-CBN executive has gotten the ire of JaDine fans after tweeting KathNiel is the real TEAM REAL

ABS-CBN executive has gotten the ire of JaDine fans after tweeting KathNiel is the real TEAM REAL

ABS-CBN executive and Star Cinema AdProm Director Roxy Liquigan has made some fans of James Reid and Nadine Lustre irate after he tweeted that the team-up of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo is the real TEAM REAL.

Liquigan was watching the rushes of Barcelona: A Love Untold, the latest KathNiel move, when he tweeted this.


It is not unknown to every corner of showbiz that the term "TEAM REAL" has been attributed to the team-up of James Reid and Nadine Lustre, otherwise known as JADINE.

This came after the two stars have developed real feelings for each other while doing the now-defunct series "On The Wings of Love." and admitted later their romantic relationship to the public.

The tweet was later deleted after getting the flak of JaDine fans.
So instead of Team Real, Liquigan made ways to equal the term like removing the word "Team" or changing "REAL" to "LOVE" until he arrived at the old tag "TEAM KATHNIEL" :D

Maja Salvador and John Lloyd Cruz spotted in Davao beach

Kapamilya stars Maja Salvador and John Lloyd Cruz were recently spotted at Malipano Island in Pearl Farm in Davao.

Photos of them circulated in social media about three days ago where they were seen accompanied by friends in showbiz.


Not long when their "How To Be Yours" photo went viral and netizens started asking if the two were dating. Their Star Magic handler had denied they were.



To set the record straight, the Davao beach "scene" where John Lloyd and Maja were seen was just a side trip from their official trip. Both stars headlined the recently concluded Kapamilya Karavan in Davao.

What was the purpose of the meet-up? Well, is it safe to say McCoy and Elisse wll be roaming around various Dreamscape-produced shows on ABS-CBN like Ang Probinsyano, Wansapanataym, and the likes? Not to mention, of being groomed to become another JaDine within its fence.

Anything is possible. :)

Congrats, McLisse!

Robin Padilla makes a statement on the so-called "extra-judicial killings" Senate hearing

Actor Robin Padilla has made a stand on the on-going Senate hearing on the so-called "extra-judicial killing" chaired by Senator Leila De Lima.

In his Instagram post, Robin hoped for the current lawmakers to focus on passing laws instead of "fact-finding" which only become a venue of sensationalism and grandstanding.

"I hope the current lawmakers will not do what their predecessors did - instead of focusing on deliberating ang passing laws, they engaged in "fact-finding" which only became a venue for grandstanding and sensationalism... "

"It's just one issue after another, most of the time without even finishing the so called senate inquiry. I hope they maximize use of their time and focus on passing laws to make the lives of the voting public better."

"After all, there are government agencies which are better equiped and are tasked/duty-bound in doing probes and investigations. Otherwise, they might as well resign and join the NBI or PNP instead."
