Bela was worried while shooting intense love scene with Carlo Aquino

After admitting she is currently seeing a businessman, Maja Salvador was asked if she prefers going out with a non-showbiz guy 

 “Oo naman,” she said, “kasi ‘yung sa akin ngayon is fifteen years ko ng kakilala . Barkada ko na dati pa, so okay kasi iba ‘yung foundation, ‘yung friendship, buong-buo.” 

She added that they also have a lot to talk about since they come from different industries. “Ang maganda don kasi is nakakausap mo or kung ano ‘yung nangyayari sa mundo niya, anong nangyayari sa mundo ko, iyon ‘yung maraming napag-uusapan at fifteen years na magkaibigan, kabisado ang isa’t isa,” she stated. 

Despite her busy schedule as an actress and performer, she relayed she still finds time for her personal life. “Sabi ko nga kung masugid naman ‘yung [admirer] mo wala namang problema ‘yun kasi meron at meron ‘yun,” she said in an interview at her concert presscon. 


Toni Gonzaga revealed she and her sister are already planning to add more branches to their ever-expanding chain of milk tea stores.

“Actually, that’s been our dream ni Alex when we opened Happy Cup – to [be involved in] a business other than show business. So now that we are in this milk tea business, we’re really, really happy ‘cause it’s a growing company. People are patronizing it. We already have 32 branches as we speak,” she said.

She was also asked if she and Alex have plans to open another business venture. 

“Meron, pero we don’t want to talk about it yet ‘cause it’s already in the works,” she admitted, “So eventually, pag reading-ready na and it’s fully developed and ready to be announced saka ko na lang siguro isheshare.”

Toni replaced Luis Manzano as Billy Crawford’s co-host in the hit reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent.”


Bela Padilla works for the first time with Carlo Aquino in the upcoming film “Meet Me in St. Gallen.” The actress relayed how passionate and professional Carlo is as an actor.

“I’ve known Carlo for a while. He’s very different as a friend and as a co-worker,” she remarked, “He’s very intense and dito mo makikita ‘yung process niya kung papano niya siniseryoso ‘yung trabaho niya, which is good kasi it’s a different, I guess, way of doing things and now I see scenes from his perspective. It’s nice and he’s really in the character.”

It is also the first time Bela shot a love scene for a movie. She admitted that she initially felt anxious shooting the scene.

She related: “Iyon lang ‘yung only scene na parang kinabahan ako pero it was done so well, one shot from the first floor to the second floor. Nag-rehearse kami, one rehearsal siyempre without doing anything else, wala pang kiss, movements lang, tapos pagdating ng take sabi ko, ‘Oh my gosh! Sobrang hirap nito.’ Kasi steady cam, baka maalog sa stairs so iniisip ko baka makailang take kami at kinakabahan ako baka ‘di ko magawa ng tama or baka mahalata na nahihiya ako sa monitor.

“Ang dami kong iniisip sa gabing ‘yun tapos nong bago mag-take kinausap lang ako ni direk Irene (Villanueva) na ‘O ready ka na?’ Nong sinabi niya ‘yun parang binola ko ‘yung sarili ko na o ready na ako tapos ‘yun ginawa na namin and I am very thankful na ginawa namin in one take lang. We didn’t have to repeat it kasi it’s awkward and things like that you’re not supposed to shoot over and over because it doesn’t feel as real as anymore,” she further said.

“Meet Me in St. Gallen” opens in cinemas on February 7.
