    Guess who has been assigned to direct the first movie together of Bea Alonzo and Alden Richards?

    Yes, this is sure to happen next year and assigned to direct it is Nuel Naval.

    Said someone close to the director: “Hindi na problema kung kanino magpapaalam si Bea, as her contract with the Kapamilya has expired.

    “In the case of Alden, pinapayagan naman siya ng GMA 7 na gumawa ng pelikula sa ibang production outfit, as proven by his role as leading man of Kathryn Bernardo in the record-breaking ‘Hello, Love, Goodbye.’

    “Hindi rin kasi gumagawa madalas ng pelikula ang GMA 7.”

    Nuel Naval was the director of Viva Films’ “Miracle in Cell No. 7,” which was the top grosser in last year’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). Aga Muhlach, Bela Padilla and child actress Xia Vigor were featured in the film.

    The Bea-Alden project will be co-produced by Viva Films and GMA Films.

    Busy as a bee is Robi Domingo, who has just renewed his contract with Star Magic.

    Robi currently has two shows. He is the solo host of the game show, “Game K N B?” and shares hosting duties with Bianca Gonzales and Toni Gonzaga in “Pinoy Big Brother Connect.” It is a homecoming of sorts as he was once a Pinoy Big Brother housemate. He was first runner-up in “Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus” in 2008. He said the P500,000 prize was the biggest money he ever saw and remembers spending all of it in seven days.
    He was only 18 then.

    “Yung top winner, whose name I’d rather not mention, won millions,” he said, “Yet, I’ll forever feel grateful to PBB, as the contest served as the stepping stone to where I am now,” Robi related.

    His parents’ dream for him is to be a doctor, because both of them are in the medical profession. But they did not object to his being a host when ABS-CBN gave him the chance to be a MYX VJ.

    “Basta wala raw sisihan. And thank God, I never regretted my decision,” he added.Robi is in a relationship with a fellow Atenista, Maiqui Pineda.

    Robi is 31 and older than Maiqui. The couple might get married in a couple of years.
    Robi was formerly in a relationship with another Atenista, host-athlete Gretchen Ho.

    If plan do not miscarry, Kris Bernal and her fiance, Perry Choi, will get married next year.
    She said: “Everything was set na sana. Even if my contract with GMA 7 expired and I had to look for a new management, it actually did not matter, because, awa ng Diyos, I was able to get Cornerstone Entertainment to manage me. I have already told them of my desire to turn singer as well, aside from my previous credentials, which includes acting and dancing. And I believe I am in good company, as several of their contract talents are professional singers, such as KZ Tandingan and Angeline Quintos, among others.

    “At 31, I still have a long way to go in my showbiz career. I’m just glad I have the support of my boyfriend.”
