Maja moving to TV5


    Former international beauty queen Precious Lara Quigaman is a mother for the third time.

    Yes, Precious Lara and husband Marco Alcaraz recently welcomed their third son, named Moses Marc, on September 17.

    Their two other sons are Noah Lamar (born in 2012) and Tobias Nolan (born in 2014). Both boys expected to have a baby sister, but showed no disappointment when they saw their baby brother.

    Daddy Marco also dotes on his third boy.

    “All three boys are artistahin,” said someone who has seen Lara and Marco’s three kids. “Di naman katakataka kung merong mag-a-artista sa kanila in the future. Marco himself was already an actor before he married Lara. He was a former basketball player and also a commercial model.”

    He and Lara married in 2011.

    Lara gave birth to Moses via cesarean section.


    Gabby Concepcion’s daughter, Cloie Sequia Skarne, with model Jenny Syquia, is engaged to her Swedish boyfriend, Frederik Hill.

    Gabby and Jenny were wed in 1993 and separated three years later. Jenny later married Filip Skarne, who adopted Cloie.

    Jenny, still a stunner at 52, has a younger daughter with Filip.

    We don’t know if Gabby is invited to Cloie’s wedding. If he gets an invite and attends, then father and daughter will finally meet.


    Bayani Agbayani happily announced he will be part of TV5’s new noontime show.

    Titled “Lunch Out Loud,” it start airing on October 17 and has Johnny Manahan at the helm.

    “Lunch Out Loud” will also include Wacky Kiray, K Bosas, Billy Crawford, and, if plans do not miscarry, Dimples Romana.

    Bayani explained that much as he wants to stay on the Kapamilya Channel, he needs to support his family. He has four daughters and a new apo, courtesy of his eldest, Thalia, who is married to Bea Alonzo’s only brother, James Carlos.

    Thalia finished her culinary arts course before she married James. Bayani’s three other daughters are still studying.

    “Doble ang happiness na nadarama ko sa kasalukuyan,” said Bayani. “Bukod nga kasi sa may bago akong trabaho, may bago pa akong title: lolo.”

    “Lunch Out Loud” is produced by Congressman Albee Benitez.



    TV5’s Sunday show will go head to head against “ASAP Live,” where she used
    to be a mainstay.

    Did we also hear it right that Maja Salvador will soon work on TV5, too?

    Maja, whispers say, might join the Sunday show of TV5.

    TV5’s Sunday show will go head to head with the Kapamilya Channel’s “ASAP Live,” where Maja was a regular performer.

    We heard there will be another Sunday show on TV5, the gag show “Sunday Kada Kada Sunday” (SKKS).

    “Parang ‘Banana Sundae’ ang format ng show,” revealed a kibitzer, “which is not surprising, as its producer and director is Bobot Mortiz. ‘Di ba si Direk Bobot ang nag-conceptualize ng ‘Banana Sundae’ and later produced it?

    “He was its first director, too, until he decided to ask his son, Frasco, to co-direct the show with him. Later, he gave Direk Frasco the reins.”

    “Banana Sundae” was formerly titled “Banana Split.” It aired for more than 10 years, until ABS-CBN had no choice but to end the show because of the non-renewal of the show’s franchise.

    As of this writing, we heard that members of the cast of “Banana Sundae” have offers to join SKKS, and they all appear interested, except, of course, Angelica Panganiban and John Prats, who still have regular shows on the Kapamilya Channel.

    Angelica is in the soon-to-start series, “Walang Hanggang Paalam,” with Paulo Avelino, Zanjoe Marudo and Arci Muñoz. She will also headline a new online show.

    “Banana Sundae’s” mainstays included Jason Gainza, Ryan Bang, Pooh, Pokwang, Jobert Austria, Sunshine Garcia and Ritz Azul.
