Derek, Jennylyn turn up the heat

MARIAN Rivera and Dingdong Dantes will celebrate their third wedding anniversary on December 30. Their daughter, Baby Zia, turned 2 years old on November 23 and Marian says their child is the biggest blessing she and her husband have received in their life as a married couple. 

“Being a wife and mother complete me,” she says. “Wala na talaga akong mahihiling dahil naging napakabait ni Lord sa akin, sa amin.”

As a way of paying it forward for all the blessings she and her family have received, she recently went to the Luwalhati ng Maynila Home for the Aged to visit and entertain the old folks who live there. “Malapit sa akin ang mga lolo’t lola kasi, alam nyo naman, lola ko ang nagpalaki sa akin habang nagtatrabaho sa ibang bansa ang mama ko,” she adds. 

She and some cast members of her primetime show, “Super Ma’am,” prepared a couple of musical numbers for them and she even danced her hit song with them, “Sabay- Sabay Tayo.” Of course, the senior citizens were all so pleased and delighted. 

Meantime, in “Super Ma’am,” things get more intriguing when Marian makes her own investigation and finds out Jill (Diana Zubiri) is really a manananggal.

Alexander Lee says he doesn’t at all feel bad that another Korean actor was hired by GMA-7 to be his rival over Heart Evangelista in “My Korean Jagiya.” 

“I think Andy’s inclusion in the show made the story more intriguing for the viewers so we all welcome his being part of the show,” he says. “We just know each other casually in Korea, but now that we’re working together here in Manila, we became good friends fast.”

His local fans seem to really care for him as they even noticed he looks so thin lately and advised him in social media to eat some more. 

“I really appreciate their concern,” he smiles. “Filipino fans are all very caring and they’re not afraid of expressing what they feel.”

He says working in Manila with Heart as his leading lady is truly a big blessing. “When I first learned that we’ll work together, I researched on her and for me, she’s like a Disney Princess. When I met her in person, I was even more impressed because she’s so kind and warm. When we had a kissing scene, I couldn’t believe it, that I’m kissing a superstar. My whole experience of doing ‘My Korean Jagiya’ will be unforgettable for me for the rest of my life.”

Derek Ramsay says he’s aware his role as Gab in “All of You” was meant for Jericho Rosales, but it’s just fine with him. 

“Ilang beses na nangyaring I wasn’t the first choice, even in ‘English Only, Please’ na si Sam Milby ang unang kinonsider nila, but the role landed with me and I consider it a blessing,” he says. “Hindi issue sa akin ang maging second choice. After our producer, Atty. Joji Alonso of Quantum Films sent me the script of ‘All of You,’ I read it, and in less than two days, everything was settled kasi maganda talaga ang material and it’s nice to be reunited with Jennylyn Mercado and director Dan Villegas na siya ring mga kasama ko noon sa ‘English Only, Please’.”

So how is it working with Jennylyn this time? 

“Sa ‘English Only, Please,’ uncomfortable pa kami with each other kasi first time namin to work together. Now, mas may rapport na kami. ‘English Only’ is more of a comedy, pero dito sa ‘All of You,’ nag-level up kami nang sampung beses kasi mas serious ang take nito about relationships and commitment. Mas matindi rin ang chemistry namin dito kasi hawak pa lang, alam na namin ang gustong sabihin ng isa’t isa. Mas marami rin kaming intimate scenes at mga mabibigat na eksena. I’m sure couples who have gone through failed or difficult relationships will be able to relate with the issues that our characters went through in ‘All of You.’ Sobrang totoong-totoo ang mga sitwasyon. Feeling ko nga, hindi ako umaarte rito kasi things na nangyari talaga sa’king past relationships, breakups, heartaches, naranasan ko first hand and I’m just speaking from my heart.”

Off cam, Derek is very open about his relationship with his non-showbiz inamorata, Joanne Villablanca. They’ve been on for nearly three years and he says they now really know each other well. They just returned from a vacation in Europe and they’ve seriously talked about marriage. Joanne’s daughter from a past relationship, Sophie, lives with them. His own son, Austin, from a previous relationship, is also coming over to spend Christmas with him.

Heart Evangelista bumps into ex-boyfriend Jericho Rosales in an exclusive dinner organized by Tim Yap and we could almost hear the lyrics of the song popularized by the late Frank Sinatra, “Just Friends, Lovers No More.” It was in 2005 when they were paired in the first TV version of “Ang Panday” and they really became an item, on and off screen. Heart even defied the wishes of her parents but eventually, their relationship ended in a bad breakup. 

Now, looking at their photos posted by Yap on social media, it’s obvious that all the past heartaches have been forgotten. 

“Whatever happened before, sobrang tagal na noon,” says Heart. “We’ve both moved on at may kanya-kanya na kaming buhay kaya let’s just all be positive and don’t dwell on the past.”

As we all know, Heart is now also happily married to Sen. Chiz Escudero, who was not present at the  dinner, while Jericho was accompanied by his wife, Kim Jones. Other stars invited to the affair were Iza Calzado, Solenn Heussaff and Nadine Lustre. 

Meantime, Heart is happy that her primetime show, “My Korean Jagiya,” is getting more good feedback with the inclusion of another Korean actor in the cast, Andy Ryu.

After an unsuccessful attempt to do a comeback movie with her ex-husband Gabby Concepcion, Sharon Cuneta now stars with Robin Padilla in “Unexpectedly Yours,” their fourth screen outing.

 The rom-com follows the usual formula of boy meets and gets girl, then he loses her but, as expected, they have a big reconciliation in the end. Although we already know how the story would go, it still works because of the oozing charisma of both Sharon and Robin. Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto are included in the cast to help attract the younger audiences, but it is never to be doubted that Sharon and Robin are the real stars of the show. 

Sharon is Patty, who’s been dumped by her husband (John Estrada) for a younger woman. Their daughter (Julia) is alienated from her and wants to work in London to be with her secret boyfriend (Jameson Blake). Of course, Sharon rejects the idea. Sharon is also having problems in her career as her ideas are often eclipsed by a younger colleague (Maxene Magalona).

Robin is Cocoy, a balikbayan seaman who is the cash cow of his mother, siblings and nephews and nieces who he sends to school. They’re the reason he remains single. He had a crush on Sharon in high school but she ignored him all the time as she’s in section 1, while Robin was in section 6. 

The movie works simply because Sharon doesn’t hesitate to do comedy at her own expense. Her character is very vulnerable as she goes through mid-life crisis and talks about facing the reality of menopause. She adorably handles both her comic scenes and her dramatic scenes with her rebellious daughter and domineering and meddlesome mother (Pilar Pilapil) quite impressively. 

As for Robin, he remains so dashing and his star wattage still burn brightly in many scenes, particularly after he is shown having shaved his moustache and combed his hair. That scene where he is shown shivering (kinikilig) with Sharon also brought the house down. It’s like his swaggering Binoe in “Maging Sino Ka Man” is back all over again after he did more serious films like “Bonifacio, Unang Pangulo” and “10,000 Hours” that failed to impress his fans.
