The ex-couple have agreed to put their differences aside and work together in a project.
Former sweethearts Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia called it quits last year.
As it was a bad break-up, they did not speak to each other for quite some time. There was even a report that they snubbed each other at some gatherings.
It was a big surprise, therefore, when the ex-couple agreed to work together in a new project. Julia and Joshua are part of “E-Numan,” one of two presentations of “Love Unlocked.” The other is “Hook-Up,” starring Gerald Anderson and Arci Muñoz.
Julia and Joshua said they agreed to do the project because it was good.
“Ang ganda ng script. Iyon tipong nakapanghihinayang if we don’t do it,” they said.
“So nag-usap kami,” related Julia, “Let’s be professional. Meaning we will just work together, without mentioning our past relationship.
“Nakakatulong that because of the lockdown, we shoot our scenes via Zoom.”
The two promise to work together again if another good project comes along.
If Zia Dantes decides to follow in her parents’ footsteps, Daddy Dingdong and Mommy Marian will be her biggest fans.
Even just watching Zia’s commercial excites the couple.
Zia’s latest endorsement is the Baby Bench scents, which, according to Marian, she herself loves to use.
“According to Mr. Ben Chan, owner of Bench, pambata ang presyo, since pangbata ang produkto,” said a kibitzer.
Marian always makes it a point to personally attend to Zia whenever the girl shoots for a commercial.
“Talagang alalay to the max siya,” added the kibitzer. “Nakakatuwang tingnan.”
Enrique Gil has a new talent manager. It is none other than Ogie Diaz, who is also the manager of Enrique’s girlfriend, Liza Soberano.
Ogie will co-manage Enrique with Star Magic.
According to Ogie, three companies have expressed their desire to get the services of the LizQuen couple – Viva, GMA and TV5.
But the couple and their manager, obviously, are taking their time before making a decision.
“As it is nga kasi,’’ said someone close to Ogie, “priority pa rin nila ang Kapamilya. Puwede nga naman kasing mag-iba ang ihip ng hangin.”
Ogie said he had a talk with Kapamilya top gun Cory Vidanes, who told him they are doing their best to protect their most important talents.
Liza and Enrique, in fact, are scheduled to do a project with box-office darling, Cathy Garcia-Molina, who was behind the cameras of the LizQuen series, “Make It With You.”
Seasoned actress Chanda Romero is grateful that her comeback series of sorts for GMA, “Prima Donnas,” is under director Gina Alajar, who is also a fellow actress.
“Medyo nabaguhan ako, as I’ve been out of the business for a while, ‘di ba? Then, nagka-aberya din nga itong series. Nag-stop taping kami. Now, nasa, tuloy tuloy na ito,’’ Chanda said.
The actress also appreciates that she gets to work with Wendell Ramos, Aiko Melendez, Benjie Paras and Elijah Alejo in the soap.
“Prima Donnas” also features Jillian Ward as Donna Marie, Althea Ablan as Donna Belle, Sofia Pablo as Donna Lyn.
Creative director of the soap is Aloy Adlawan.
Jericho Rosales’ son, Santino, said he is close to his dad’s wife, Kim Jones.
Actually, Santino said that his mom, Kai Palomares, and Kim get along fine.
“Kaya, one big and happy family daw sila,” said a source, “when they are together.”

Santino and Kim are both models. Aside from being a fashionista, Kim is also an influencer, blogger, stylist, designer and photographer.
Santino’s mom, Kai, was also a model before.
Right now, Santino wants to focus on hosting. As is common knowledge, he just inked a contract with Viva Artists Agency, headed by Veronique del Rosario-Corpus. Will he follow in the footsteps of his Dad Jericho, considered as one of the country’s prime actors.
Santino is determined to finish his Interdisciplinary Business Studies at the De La Salle University.
God willing, he wants to become a successful businessman, too.
