People ...are talking about; AlDub TVC

People ...are talking about


People are not going to stop talking about the phenomenal love team to hit local television of late. After the record-breaking 6.3 million tweets over the weekend, the Alden Richard-Maine Mendoza tandem’s popularity has improved significantly in the past few weeks. Aldub has just been featured in the latest McDonald’s TVC and just before the week ended they scored another endorsement, this time with Talk ’N Text. That was sooner than expected. Just wow.

James Reid

Sorry for the one who tweeted that he isn’t talented enough to be a singer (or something to that effect). James is a legitimate singer by all standards, certified gold record, sold-out shows and trending music videos. You see, his recent nomination at the MTV music video awards under Best Asian Act category, didn’t happen without reason.

Star Magic Ball

ABS CBN has its own way of branding and packaging its talents as if saying that they are a cut above the rest. And through the annual rendezvous of the station’s biggest and upcoming stars we see how it has been successful in glamorizing its stars, something that its closest rival is yet to find out. We bet, even the stars from the other network wanted to be part of this annual gathering.

...are NOT talking about

JM de Guzman

Loyal fans may want to take out a box of tissue paper again. Rumors have been circulating around that he and Jessy Mendiola, for the second time, called it quits. In other news, Jessy has just landed on the cover of UNO Magazine. The staff of the glossy called themselves extremely lucky as if they won the jackpot to have Jessy, who flaunted her killer figure and flawless skin, on the cover. So going back to JM, it appears that some people appreciate more what he has just let go of.

Enrique Gil

While everyone was talking about AlDub and Star Magic Ball, the Kapamilya actor issued an apology for unbecoming demeanor on board a plane together with other members of the ASAP cast en route to London. The network tried to not to make the story a big deal but the truth about his misbehavior is slowly being revealed. We hope he learns his lesson, especially now that having a tarnished reputation being a member of a love team is not very welcome.

Ellen Adarna

The sexy starlet has just posted a photo of her with her one hand holding a drink while the other tending to the cigarette. She captioned the picture “keeping it real.” Thank you for introducing yourself to us, Ellen, and for being transparent to the many fans that follow you religiously. Sometimes, celebrities still need to keep a few things in private as part of their responsibilities as public figures.
