Angel Locsin will have a new show on the Kapamilya Channel.
Guess who will be directing the project?
None other than her fiancé, producer and businessman Neil Arce, who will be trying his hand at directing for the first time.
The show is titled “Iba ‘Yan” and will air every Sunday. It is a public service show that will put the spotlight on real stories of people who live challenging lives.
Angel was last seen in the ABS-CBN primetime soap, “The General’s Daughter” (2019), which also featured Albert Martinez, Tirso Cruz III and Janice de Belen.
The series “Love Thy Woman” will resume airing on cable on the Kapamilya Channel, beginning June 13.
Back to work are the cast of the drama series, including Kim Chiu, Yam Concepcion, Xian Lim, Eula Valdez, Sunshine Cruz, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ruffa Gutierrez and Cristopher de Leon.
Airing was put on hold because of the end of ABS-CBN’s franchise. Around that time, according to Boyet (Christopher’s pet name), he had to be quarantined because he tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
He has recovered, testing negative twice and being given a clean bill of health by his doctor.
“Kaya walang dapat ikatakot ang mga co-stars ko, pati directors and other co-workers,” said the actor,
“God is truly good. I, together with my family, prayed that I get well totally at wala sanang mahawa sa pamilya ko,” he continued.
‘’And our prayers have been answered.”
Andi Eigenmann now mostly lives the island life with partner, Philmar Alipayo, and their daughter, Lilo, in Siargao, leaving more time for her other daughter, Ellie, to be with Ellie’s dad, Jake Ejercito.
Jake is the son of former actress Laarni Enriquez and former President Joseph Estrada.
Ellie has become closer not only to her Daddy Jake, but also to her grandparents and her dad’s siblings, Jerika and Jacob.
Jerika is now married and has two small children.
Andi and Jake might have some disagreements before, but when it comes to taking care of Ellie, they seem to be in accord. Andi can rest easy knowing Ellie is cared for.
Happy for Andi is her mom, actress Jaclyn Jose.
Although Andi is not active in showbiz anymore, Jaclyn does not seem to mind. Jaclyn herself seems unconcerned that she does not have a show at the moment.
“Nagiging mapili na rin kasi siya sa tinatanggap niyang project,” said a kibitzer. “After all, she is one of a few actresses who has won a Cannes best actress trophy.”
Andi is Jaclyn’s daughter with the late actor Mark Gil, whose real name is Ralph Gil Eigenmann.
Mark is the middle child of actors Eddie Mesa and Rosemarie Gil. His siblings are Michael de Mesa and Cherie Gil.
Mark died in 2014, at age 52, after losing the battle with cancer.
Jaclyn has a son from another relationship.
This early, Senator Bong Revilla is excited to face the cameras anew, for his upcoming series, “Agimat ng Agila.”
He already has had several meetings with his director, Rico Gutierrez, and production staff.
And they are all eager to work with him.
Playing his leading lady is Sanya Lopez.
Sanya, of course, is Shaira Lenn Osuna Roberto in real life. She is the sister of young Kapuso talent, Jak Roberto.
Twenty-three-year-old Sanya was featured in several memorable series, including “The Half Sisters,” “Dahil sa Pag-ibig,” and “Encantadia.”
They were about to start taping when his dad, former actor and Senator Ramon Revilla, Sr., got sick.
“Nabigla kaming magkakapatid sa pagkakasakit niya. Bale ba, nahirapan siyang huminga,” said Sen. Bong. “Now thank God, he is better. At muli na kaming nakaka-usap.”
“Anytime soon, I might start working on the series.”
Actress Angel Aquino is eager to start taping for “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
Angel plays General Diana Olegario, an ally of Cardo Dalisay (Coco Martin).
From Angel, we learned that several new members in the cast will be added.
