Beauty explains reason for her aloofness


    Beauty Gonzales admitted it took a while before she developed good rapport with her “Kadenang Ginto” co-actors.

    Beauty was with Albert Martinez, her husband in the series; Dimples Romana, who is her stepdaughter, Adrian Alandy, Joko Diaz, and four teen stars, Andrea Brillantes, Seth Fedelin, Kyle Echarri and Francine Diaz, who plays her daughter.

    “Basta nasa tent ako when I was not needed sa set. And my co-stars and the production staff let me be,” Beauty said. “At that time, I was suffering from anorexia. I later told them this. And also I was contemplating whether I did the right thing staying in ABS-CBN when I had a good offer from another network.

    “Prayers really work wonders,” she continued. “I prayed to God for Him to give me a sign that I made the right decision. And obviously, I had, as ‘Kadenang Ginto,’ which aired for 16 months, is, so far, the best teleserye I’ve done.

    “I’m pretty sure I will miss all my co-workers, the production staff, the crew, and most especially, my co-stars,” she added.

    “Kadenang Ginto,” from Deo Edrinal’s Dreamscape Entertainment, will air its last on February 7.

    Erick is also part of owner of Spring Films. Piolo Pascual and director Joyce Bernal are his partners.


    Maja Salvador has denied she is tying the knot soon with boyfriend Rambo Nunez.

    The love birds have just returned from Canada, where Maja’s mom now lives with her husband.

    “My mom wanted to meet him, as noong parehong bata pa kami ni Rambo ay kilala na niya,” explained Maja.

    “Nanligaw na siya sa akin noon, but my mom advised him to wait until we both are more mature. Malalaman daw namin, in time, kung para nga kami sa isa’t isa. And it looks like she’s right.”

    Marriage, said Maja, will have to wait because she is still committed to do a movie with Star Cinema and a series for ABS-CBN.

    The actress has just finished the series, “The Killer Bride,” where she played the lead.


    Maja’s “The Killer Bride” co-star, Joshua Garcia, has denied he and Janella Salvador, are more than friends.

    Janella is being linked to another Kapamilya actor, Markus Peterson, who has admitted that Janella is special to him.

    Joshua, who is single after breaking up with Julia Barretto last year, said it will take a while before he falls in love again.

    He may not admit it but the actor looks heartbroken. Those close to him says Julia, his co-star in “Block Z,” is his first love.
