    Maja Salvador, 31, reveals she’s not in a hurry to get married – even if boyfriend Rambo Nuñez would only be too glad to pop the question.

    “I’m glad Rambo understands,” Maja said. “Sabi ko sa kanya, to allow me to make the most muna of my showbiz career bago kami lumagay sa tahimik.

    “Tutal in two years, I think I will be ready. Even if it would mean giving up my career.”

    Right now, Maja is enjoying a career high. Her series, “The Killer Bride,” is doing good that the people behind it wonder how they would end it, and when.

    Maja also recently was tapped to endorse a top food chain. And she is a mainstay of “ASAP.” She may soon do a movie, too.

    “Napakabait sa akin ni God,” she enthused, “Kasi, more than the blessings I get as an actress, heto at talagang napaka-ideal ng aking lovelife. Ang ganda rin ng mga nangyayari sa akin pamilya. My mom is happily married. She wants me and my younger brother, with Rambo, to visit her and her husband in Canada, where they now live.”
    Maja’s parents, mom Thelma and dad Ross Rival, were not married.

    Many are asking if Robin Padilla is ready to retire from showbiz. And if he is retiring, what are his plans?

    Right now, Robin is almost always with Senator Bong Go. “Magkakasama sila lagi ni Phillip (Salvador). Open siya sa pag-amin na supporter siya ni President Digong (Duterte),” a source said.

    Is Robin interested in a political career? He has said before that joining politics is not in his mind. Maybe he has had a change of heart?

    Robin, who is turning 50 on November 23, has admitted he misses his wife, Mariel Rodriguez, and their three-year-old daughter, Isabella, very much.

    Mariel is in the US, where she will give birth to their second daughter.

    Alden Richards plan to treat his family by bringing them all to Korea before Christmas.

    He plans to stay there for at least a week.

    “May standing commitment kasi akong dapat i-fulfill before the New Year,” Alden said.

    “Pero, sabi nga ng pamilya ko, more than enough na na magtagal kami ng more than one week sa Korea.”

    Alden will soon be kept busy, as, aside from his series, “The Gift,” he will soon start work on a new movie, most-likely to be produced by GMA Films and APT Entertainment.

    He is not at liberty to reveal who his leading lady is, although some still hope he and Maine Mendoza will reunite in a film.

    Big time stardom awaits the Gold Squad of “Kadenang Ginto,” composed of young talents Andrea Brillantes, Francine Diaz, Seth Fidelino and Kyle Echarri, with the release of their first digital movie set to stream on iWant on November 23 and 25.

    The four will be featured each in two movies. Kyle and Francine’s movie is “Silly Red Shoes,” with Benedict Miguel at the helm.

    It will also star Anna Luna, Karen Reyes and former Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.

    “Very simple and plot ng ‘Silly Red Shoes’,” said the director, “It’s about a pair of shoes, red in color, which Chuck (Kyle), who belongs to a family of shoemakers, made for Ashley (Francine). May misteryong matutuklasan sina Chuck at Ashley na may kinalaman sa sapatos.

    “Tiyak na ang pelikulang ito will appeal to the millennials,” he concluded.

    Andrea and Seth’s starrer, “Wild Little Love,” is a love story between two youngsters from different economic strata.

    “Ultra rich dito ang family ni Andrea, as Sam,” director James Mayor, related. “Spoiled siya to the max, so her parents decided to transfer her to a public school where Jake, Seth’s character, is enrolled.

    “They soon develop a certain closeness, and Sam realizes how lucky she is to have rich parents.”

    Carmina Villaroel and Alfred Vargas portray the parents of Andrea. It’s a comeback movie of sorts for the two as Kapamilya, as they are now both identified as Kapuso talents.
    Jin Macapagal is being introduced. Also featured is Victor Neri.

    These digital movies for iWant are co-produced by Dreamscape Entertainment and Spring Films.
