    JANNO Gibbs and Manilyn Reynes, who were one of the hottest love teams of the ‘90s, are reuniting in a movie.

    The movie is “Mang Jose” and will have Janno as lead. It will be produced by Viva Films and directed by Raynier Brizuela.

    The reunion movie brings to mind Janno’s recent reunion with Dennis Padilla and Andrew E.

    It was Janno who made the suggestion to Viva boss Vic del Rosario, who then produced “Sanggano, Sangago’t, Sangguwapo,” which did well at the box-office.

    “Kaya heto at kaagad pumayag si Boss Vic sa suggestion ni Janno, na igawa sila ng pelikulang magkasama ni Manilyn,” said a source.

    Although Janno and Manilyn made a cute love team, they eventually married other people.

    Janno has been with singer-actress Bing Loyzaga, with whom he has two daughters, for over two decades.

    “Nagmuntik-muntikan na maghiwalay sina Janno and Bing, but Bing chose to stick with him,” said our source.

    Manilyn ended up with fellow Regal baby Aljon Jimenez. They have been married for 29 years and have three sons.


    Karla Estrada, who just marked her 45th birthday last November 21, is in love.
    She reportedly met her current love, a commercial model, at her own resto bar. He now acts as her driver.

    Rumors say the two are thinking about tying the knot.

    “Single naman kasi si Guy,” said someone close to Karla. “And he seems serious with her.

    “And regarding her four kids, they all seem happy for her. Especially Daniel, who is also happily in love (with Kathryn Bernardo).”

    If Karla decides to take the plunge, it will be her first marriage, as she never married any of her four kids’ fathers.


    When it comes to her career, Karla cannot ask for anything more. Her talk show,

    “Magandang Buhay,” with Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal, is rating very well.

    She has also put up her own businesses. Aside from the resto bar, she also has salons and spas. Of course, she also earns from her TV and movie appearances. She often sits as part of Hurados in “It’s Showtime.”


    Sylvia Sanchez, husband Art Atayde, and their four children, Arjo, Ria, Gela and Xavi, will all be celebrating the New Year in Dubai.

    “Itataon namin ‘yung bakasyon namin sa pagbukas doon ng aming branch ng Beautederm,” stated Sylvia. “This early, nakaka-inspire na ‘yung bagong bukas naming shop ng Beautederm sa Roces Avenue is doing well.”

    A number of celebrities were present at the recent opening of Sylvia’s shop. Spotted were Alma Concepcion, Rochelle Barrameda and husband Jimwell Stevens, and Lorna Tolentino, whom everyone congratulated for her performance as a kontrabida in the top rating “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” topbilled by Coco Martin.

    In our conversation with her, Lorna said that had Anne Curtis not gotten pregnant, they would have done a movie together with Jun Lana and Perci Intalan directing.

    “Sayang nga,” said Lorna. “Dahil first movie together sana namin ito ni Anne. But this is not to say that I’m not happy na she will be a mother. For I am.”

    Anne and sister-in-law Solenn Heussaff are reportedly attending parenting counseling for first-time mothers.


    Robin Padilla and wife Mariel Rodriquez welcomed their second daughter, Gabriela, recently.

    Mariel gave birth on November 16 in the United States.

    Robin has three daughters with his first wife, Liezl Sicangco. They are Queenie, Kylie and Zherileen. They have a son, Ali, 18, who just got married in Australia. Queenie and Kylie are both married and have kids.

    Kylie, who is married to actor Aljur Abrenica, will soon give Robin his third grandson.


    Although he is often seen in the company of Senator Bong Go and Phillip Salvador, Robin Padilla swears he has no political plans.

    But the actor says he wants to be of service.

    “Pero sa paraang kaya ko lang,” he adds.

    He has been quietly helping during calamities and also has extended help to those who were displaced by the war in Mindanao.

    “Para sa akin, ang importante, nakatulong ako,” he states, “Sa paraang kaya ko.”
