Bea Alonzo

‘Four Sisters and a Wedding’ prequel shows Teddie, Bobbie, Alex and Gabbie 10 years prior

in Entertainment/Tabloid PH Showbiz

Netizens expressed reservations over the decision of Star Cinema to produce a prequel of the 2013 hit movie “Four Sisters and a Wedding”, particularly since relatively new actresses will be taking on the characters played by Bea Alonzo, Angel Locsin, Toni Gonzaga, Shaina Magdayao in the original movie.

In the original, Toni played the character of Teddie, Bea was Bobbie, Angel was Alex and Shaina was Gabbie. All of them went home in preparation for the wedding of their brother, who was played by Enchong Dee.

Star Cinema’s new project, on the other hand, stars Alexa Ilacad as  Bobbie, Gillian Vicencio as Alex, Charlie Dizon as Teddie, and Belle Mariano as Gabbie.  It was titled “Four Sisters Before the Wedding”. 

@HijiXian commented on Twitter: “ Hopefully these young actresses would really give justice to the characters of Teddie, Bobbie, Alex, and Gabbie.”


@HiJakeeeee said: “STILL THE BEST AND MOST ICONIC FILIPINO FILM EVER MADE! No one can replace Teddie, Bobbie, Alex and Gabbie and their impacts to my heart. Bakit hindi na lang gumawa ng sequel instead of prequel na iba na yung casts? Hmm”.

The setting of the prequel, also written by Vanessa Veldez, is 10 years before the original’s movie’s plot.

To make sure they will do justice to the characters and the original actresses who played them, youngsters Ilacad, Vicencio, Dizon and Mariano will be getting tips from their veteran counterparts.

“Actually idol ko po talaga si Miss Toni and Miss Bea so nakakakaba kung makikita ko po siya sa personal at matatanong ko kung ano ang dapat niya i-advise. Sana po magka-chance na makapagbigay siya ng tips kung paano ang essence ng character and kung ano ang mga nuances or ano yung mga dapat tandaan sa eksena,” Dizon said.

Gerald Anderson admits own shortcomings in keeping relationships, cites support of ‘A Soldier’s Heart’ stars

in Entertainment/Tabloid PH Showbiz

Controversial actor Gerald Anderson credited his co-stars in new Kapamilya series “A Soldier’s Heart” for helping him withstand the pressures and negative emotions he had with regard to his failed relationship with fellow ABS-CBN talent Bea Alonzo.

Gerald, who was also put on the spotlight after Bea gave hints that he flirted with Julia Barretto when they were still together, particularly cited Carlo Aquino for showing genuine concern to his situation.

In an interview with the hosts of ABS-CBN’s morning talk show “Magandang Buhay”, Geralo shared: “Nag-open up ako sa isang taping namin. Pero hindi ko sinabi sa kanila na ako ‘yon. … Noong time kasi na ‘yon parang nasa akin lahat, parang may makaka-relate kaya sa akin? Iba ‘yung feeling. So nung nagkuwento ako, ‘yung kaibigan ko kasi ganito, ‘yung partner niya ganyan,’ sabi nila ‘ay oo, Bro.’ So parang gumaan agad ‘yung pakiramdam ko na ‘ah okay normal, hindi lang pala ako ang dumadaan sa ganito.

ABS-CBN scheduled the start of the primetime airing of the new series of Gerald and Carlo on Monday (January 20). The two actors and other stars of “A Soldier’s Heart” guested at “Magandang Buhay” — hosted by Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal—to promote the TV series.

In that interview, Gerald admitted that he also had his own shortcomings when it comes to keeping relationships. He said: “Hindi naman ako magmamalinis. Until this day, siyempre there are nights na I think of what could I have done better, ano ‘yung dapat ko ginawa. Habang tumatagal doon ko na-realize na there’s always two versions talaga. At iba ang perspective ng bawat tao sa relationship. It takes two to tango. But I also accepted na a relationship doesn’t fail just because of one person, it really takes two, kasi kayong dalawa ‘yung nandoon.”

When people were already passing judgment on him, Gerald said he was glad to be around Carlo and other “A Soldier’s Heart” stars. “Pero noong pinaka-peak ng lahat ng judgment at pinagdaanan, ako masasabi ko na hindi ko ‘yon [malalagpasan] kung hindi dahil sa ‘A Solider’s Heart,’ dahil sa grupo na ito. Makita ko lang sila, magba-basketball, during break, or kakain kami sa labas, or kakain sa kampo sobrang sarap na may ganito ako. I think Papa God gives you the challenges at the right time in your life. He gives the worst challenges to the strongest soldiers, isa ‘yon sa mga na-realize ko.”

Julia Barretto: Gerald Anderson is just a close friend

Actress Julia Barretto stated in clear terms that she and another Kapamilya star Gerald Anderson were never in a romantic relationship, although she confirmed that they are close friends up to now.

“Tapusin na lang natin ‘to. Let’s clear this whole issue, so we can put this whole issue to rest. Hindi ko siya (Gerald) naging boyfriend and hindi ko siya boyfriend ngayon. Therefore, wala akong inagawan ng boyfriend, wala akong inahas, at wala din akong nilandi,” Julia said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.

Earlier, Julia was rumored to be the reason behind the Gerald Anderson – Bea Alonzo breakup, which became a trending topic on social media for several days.

Speaking to MJ Felipe of ABS-CBN News, Julia stressed: “Hindi ako nililigawan. Naniniwala ako na may tamang panahon at oras para sa mga bagay na ganyan. Pero nanatili siyang matalik kong kaibigan ngayon.”

Julia also clarified that Gerald was not also the reason she and ex-boyfriend Joshua Garcia parted ways.

“It’s always been our own issues. We’re also very young, so we’re still trying to figure out ourselves, our direction in life, what we really want. I think the decision that we made was a mutual decision because we knew ‘yung makakabuti sa isa’t-isa. At the end of the day, pinili namin ang makakabuti sa isa’t-isa. Ayaw na naming i-damage ang isa’t isa, so we protected each other, because there is love,” Julia said.

She added: “Right now, I think I’m in the process of healing and moving forward from everything that happened in the past month, because hindi biro ‘yung pinagdaanan naming lahat. Hindi biro ‘yung pinagdaanan ko, ng pamilya ko, ng pamilya naming lahat.”

Rumored Bea-Gerald-Julia love triangle now a ‘national issue

in Entertainment/Tabloid PH Showbiz

Even a justice of the Supreme Court (SC) and a lawmaker couldn’t resist the itch of sharing their thoughts on the Bea Alonzo-Julia Barreto rift via the social media on Wednesday morning.

SC Associate Justice Marvic Leonen’s tweet on Wednesday morning directed a question on the two actresses: “Dear Bea and Julia, is he really worth it? #JustAsking”.

Justice Leonen, of course, was referring to Gerald Anderson, who was accused by Bea—not yet directly though—in her social media posts of having an affair with Julia that led to their breakup.

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon then re-tweeted Leonen’s “query” and commented: “You know it has become a national issue when a justice of the SC asks a clarificatory question. Now I’m contemplating to file an inquiry in aid of legislation.”

Gerald already denied in an interview with ABS-CBN last Monday the innuendos of a third party—particularly Julia—causing his split-up with Bea.

But as a retort, Bea “liked” an instagram post of actor John Lloyd Cruz that says: “Kung magsisinungaling ka galing galingan mo!!” Apparently, Bea was sending the message that Gerald was lying.

Julia also went to Instagram to deny involvement with Gerald and also to tell Bea that she became a subject of social media attacks because of hints that she was the third party in the love triangle.


She said: “I would like to disassociate myself from the breakup of Bea and Gerald. Their issues are entirely their own…Bea, you kept your hands clean by not mentioning me in your controversial post, but with a click of your finger, in your sly way, you have charged everybody to destroy me FOR YOU. You have encouraged a culture of hate by purposely liking harmless photos, putting malice into the minds of many, which resulted in the outrage of insults against me. You are a woman of great influence and following. You could have used that power to promote strength and grace in women, but instead, you’ve used that to promote social media irresponsibility. That is downright bullying. You can play victim all you want. But I refuse to be your victim…This is me setting myself free and getting my soul back.”

Their showbiz friends and family were also dragged into the social media rampage, with Bela Padilla getting “super hateful” comments after a picture of her having dinner with Bea came out.

The root of the feud was a video that circulated wherein Julia and Gerald were seen together.

Now, the names Julia, Bea Alonzo and Gerald are trending topics on Twitter worldwide. And with top government officials now also saying their piece on the matter, it has indeed become a national issue.

Reports confirm John Lloyd Cruz – Ellen Adarna split-up

in Entertainment/Tabloid PH Showbiz

Showbiz reports are abuzz with the breakup of John Lloyd Cruz and Ellen Adarna. The two have a one-year-old son who is now with Ellen.

It was Ellen who told John Lloyd that she is no longer in love with him, and reports said the actor is now barred from meeting the former sexy actress, who belongs to a wealthy family in Cebu.


John Lloyd is now reportedly in Vietnam, while Ellen is in Thailand.

Two days ago, the news on their breakup was only in the form of blind items. Now, showbiz writers are openly writing about it, and even confirming that it was Ellen who called it quits.

Ellen reportedly revealed her feelings to her friends first, and then people started hearing about it through the grapevine.

It was a pity for John Lloyd, who opted to stay away from showbiz to focus on his relationship with Ellen and their son. But being together a lot—because both of them don’t work—was also cited as one of the reasons for their split-up. Ellen probably grew tired of it, or was just too bored already to keep the relationship.


Will John Lloyd make an immediate comeback to the film industry? This could be a good timing because his love interest in past movies, Bea Alonzo, also just parted ways with Gerald Anderson. 

The Bea-Gerald breakup was actually the talk of the town in the previous days — the reason being their frequent fights. 

Seems like a good plot already for a John Lloyd-Bea movie.
