Has Dennis asked for Jen’s hand in marriage?

DENNIS Trillo was the villain in the original “Mulawin” that helped push GMA-7 to be the number one station in 2004. Now, he’s playing the lead role in the reboot, “Mulawin Vs. Ravena” while Richard Gutierrez, who was the

original lead, has moved to ABS-CBN. Richard will play a supporting role in Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s project, “Luna Sangre,” which will eventually be pitted against “Mulawin Vs. Ravena.” 

Well, that’s how the world turns in showbiz. You never know what’s gonna happen next. GMA-7 is optimistic that “Mulawin Vs. Ravena” will maintain or even exceed the high ratings of the show it will replace, “Encantadia,”

another fantasy reboot. “Mulawin” has a connection with “Encantadia” since its setting is in Mt. Apo, which is found in the mountains of Encantadia. In their mythos, the supreme god is Mandarangan (Joel Torre) whose wife is Sandawa (Regine Velasquez.) 

They have four children: Magindara (Lovi Poe), protector of water; Lumad (Jay Manalo), protector of land; Ravemus (Antonio Aquitania), caretaker of fire; and Dakila (Romnick Sarmenta), guardian of the air. Lumad marries a

human and chooses to be a mortal, establishing a tribe of nature-loving men who’d be called Lumads. Magindara is a mermaid guarding the waters. 

Dakila establishes a kingdom of bird people in Avila, the highest point in Mt. Apo, and they call themselves Mulawin. Ravemus has his own tribe called Ravena with their own kingdom called Halconia near a fiery volcano. The

Mulawins and Ravenas are at war with each other because of their past history of love affairs with human beings, resulting in Alwina (half-human and half-Mulawin) and Gabriel (half-human and half-Ravena). This made them mortals. In the new show, the quest is for them to become immortals once again.

The show’s younger cast members include Derrick Monasterio as Almiro, son of Alwina and Aguiluz who’ll be the new sugo of the Mulawin clan; Bea Binene as Anya, daughter of Aviona and Rodrigo; Miguel Tanfelix as

Pagaspas, a Mulawin who can turn into an owl and was a child actor in the original show; Bianca Umali as Lawiswis, a Mulawin who can turn into a parrot; and Kiko Estrada as Rafael, the human friend of Derrick.

Dennis is the only cast member retained from the original “Mulawin.” Is it true that he is soon tying the knot with Jennylyn Mercado? It’s said Dennis already asked for her hand in marriage when he celebrated his birthday on May 11 with their respective families in attendance. 

“Walang ganun,” he replied. “Pareho kaming very busy sa aming respective careers dahil pareho kaming may bagong show. Basta sa ngayon, all I can say is masaya lang kami. Life is short, so we should all be just happy.”
So it’s true that love is lovelier the second time around for them. 

“Yes, totoo ‘yan. Kasi mas kilala na namin ang isa’t isa at nakakatulong ‘yun in any relationship para maiwasan nyo ang inyong past mistakes.”

Dennis and Jen are now the real power couple of GMA as each of them topbill their own primetime shows that will both start soon. Dennis is in “Mulawin Vs. Ravena” while Jen is in “My Love from the Star” that will replace “Destined to Be Yours” starting May 29.

Has Jak Roberto overtaken his rivals to become the boyfriend of Barbie Forteza? Fans are wondering as they had a date with each other recently and they went on a movie marathon, watching three films at U.P. Town Center. 

“Nataon lang na wala kaming taping noon,” explained Jak. “We invited Ken Chan, Ivan Dorschner and Addy Raj to join us pero hindi naman sila available kasi may kanya-kanya silang lakad, kaya kaming dalawa lang ni Barbie

ang natuloy na makapanood. Grabe nga ang reaction sa internet, ina-underground ko raw si Barbie at nilalamangan ‘yung tatlo gayong wala akong ganung intention.” 

He added his friendship with Barbie goes a long way back. “Barbie and I have been friends for a long time, bago pa ang show naming ‘Meant to Be’. We even played husband and wife in the movie ‘Laut,’ for which she won a

best actress award in Europe. Ako ‘yung irresponsible husband niya roong pabigat sa buhay niya. Pero hindi pa kami talaga. Kumbaga, what we had, it’s only a friendly date. Niyaya rin nga naming sumama ang mommy niya,

pero sabi, kaming dalawa na lang daw. Matagal na akong ‘di nakakapanood ng movie dahil sa sobrang busy sa tapings. So sinagad na namin with three movies.”

He and his co-stars in “Meant to Be” are all very happy now that the airing of their show has been extended up to June. “Dapat, nag-end na kami ng April but because the response to the show is so favorable at name-maintain

namin ang mataas na ratings, na-extend nga kami for several more weeks and, for that, we are all so grateful to GMA management and to the loyal viewers who follow us every night. Abangan nila dahil mas marami pang

magagandang developments na mangyayari sa show ngayong nadagdagan pa ng four more boys and mga nag-aagawan kay Barbie.”

Lovi Poe’s movie with Regal Entertainment last year, “The Escort,” was a big hit, so it’s not surprising that producer Lily Monteverde got her again to do a movie for them this year.

“Ang ganda ng concept ng bagong project so I agreed to do it right away,” said Lovi. “Kung sexy drama ang ‘The Escort’ with Derek Ramsay, my new movie naman with Vhong Navarro is a rollicking romantic comedy. This is

my second movie with Vhong kasi I was paired with him before in an episode of ‘Shake Rattle & Roll’ about five years ago.”

The title of their new project is “Woke Up Like This.” In the story, Lovi is a sexy model while Vhong is an ace basketball player. By some twist of fate, they have a body switch, with Lovi becoming Vhong and vice versa. 

“Ang daming eksenang sobrang nakakatawa, lalo na nang matuklasan namin sa loob ng bathroom na iba na ang sex organs namin at nagkapalit na pala kami,” she related.

The movie is the first big screen project of Joel Ferrer, who is currently directing Jasmine Curtis Smith’s “Forever Sucks” on D5Studio.
