Bongbong Marcos Snubs 'The Jessica Soho Presidential Interviews' Because of Biased Host, GMA Network Releases Statement

GMA Network takes exception to the statement of the camp of former senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. that Kapuso news pillar Jessica Soho is supposedly biased against the Marcoses, the reason for the presidential candidate to decline participation on "The Jessica Soho Presidential Interviews."

Throughout her career, Ms. Soho has consistently been named the most trusted media personality in the Philippines by both local and foreign organizations, a testament to her embodying the GMA News and Public Affairs ethos: "Walang Kinikilingan, Walang Pinoprotektahan, Serbisyong Totoo Lamang."

This same ethos has guided Ms. Soho and the whole GMA News and Public Affairs organization, which is the most trusted media organization in the Philippines, according to the University of Oxford/Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism.

It is unfortunate that Mr. Marcos has chosen to decline the invitation extended by the network to participate in "The Jessica Soho Presidential Interviews," even as four other aspirants - Sen. Panfilo Lacson, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Sen. Manny Pacquiao, and Vice President Leni Robredo - have chosen to participate and take the opportunity to explain their advocacies to the public.

In this must-see special, Ms. Soho boldly asks the presidential aspirants the questions that need to be asked – their intentions behind running for the position, the controversies thrown at them, their stand on pressing issues and their concrete plans should they be elected. The questions are tough because the job of the presidency is tough.

We believe that this is an important exercise to inform the public about the candidates seeking their votes in Eleksyon 2022, to help them make the best, most informed choice on their ballots.

“The Batman” Reveals Two New Posters and Latest Trailer

Unmask the truth.”

Warner Bros. has just unveiled two posters for its eagerly anticipated action adventure “The Batman.”

One features a close-up of Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, while the other showcases a sunset-bathed pairing of Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman.

See the film’s latest trailer at

From Warner Bros. Pictures comes Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilante detective and his alter ego, reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne.

Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies -Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)—amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.

When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.

Starring alongside Robert Pattinson (“Tenet,” “The Lighthouse”) as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Zoë Kravitz (“Big Little Lies,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”); Paul Dano (“Love & Mercy,” “12 Years a Slave”); Jeffrey Wright (“No Time to Die,” “Westworld”); John Turturro (the “Transformers” films, “The Plot Against America”); Peter Sarsgaard (“The Magnificent Seven,” “Interrogation”) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson; Jayme Lawson (“Farewell Amor”) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál; with Andy Serkis (the “Planet of the Apes” films, “Black Panther”); and Colin Farrell (“The Gentlemen,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”).

Reeves (“The Planet of the Apes” franchise) directed from a screenplay by Reeves & Peter Craig, based on characters from DC. Batman was created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. Dylan Clark (the “Planet of the Apes” films) and Reeves produced the film, with Michael E. Uslan, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo and Simon Emanuel serving as executive producers.

Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a 6th & Idaho/Dylan Clark Productions Production, a Matt Reeves Film, “The Batman.” The film is set to open in Philippine theaters on March 2; it will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Joshua Garcia and Ivana Alawi painted the online world red on Wednesday night following their phone conversation during the “Truth or Dare” fundraising show of ABS-CBN for the victims of Typhoon Odette, via live streaming app Kumu.

When asked who among the female Kapamilya stars he wanted to be textmates with, Joshua immediately answered, “Si Ivana,” admitting that they're already textmates.

"Pero hindi kami nagka-text ng matagal. Mas tawag, mas tawag ako kesa text eh," he said.

Joshua also chose Ivana as girlfriend material in the Totropahin or Jojowain Challenge, saying “Siyempre, Jojowain. I mean, c’mon, choosy ka pa ba? Mabait, maganda, sexy.

Ivana, on the other hand, replied "Secret!" when asked by Joshua.

It will be recalled that in her recent vlog to celebrate her 2nd anniversary on YouTube, Ivana's younger sister Mona revealed that the Kapamilya sexy actress also has a big crush on Joshua.

Vivamax and Sigrid Andrea Bernardo Release Fresh and Exciting Girl Love Series "Lulu" Feat. Rhen Escaño and Rita Martinez

This 2022, get ready for some girl to girl romance!

Lulu”, a girl love series written and directed by the box-office director of Kita Kita, Sigrid Andrea Bernardo, is premiering on Vivamax on January 23rd, the fourth Sunday of 2022. 

It introduces the fresh and exciting team-up of sultry actress Rhen Escaño (Adan, The Other Wife, Paraluman) as Sophie and newcomer Rita Martinez (The Voice Philippines season 2 semifinalist, LGBTQIA+ Advocate) as Abi.

Devastated by a break-up, the naturally bubbly and outspoken Sophie wants to disconnect from the world. After deactivating her social media accounts, she escapes to her beach front AirBnB house, also meaning to rehabilitate it. But everything she does is turning out to be a disaster. In fact, Sophie believes that in all her 25 years of existence, she has not done anything right. But when Abi arrives in her house and walks into her life, it all feels just right.

Abi is a 30-year-old soft butch, a talented cook, and a guitarist in an indie band. She is someone who’s got her life all planned out. But for a change, Abi goes on a journey where she just wants to be spontaneous. That is how she stumbles upon Sophie’s AirBnB. When the two meet, sparks fly and they can’t resist falling in love with each other.

Composed of eight episodes, “Lulu” will show how Sophie and Abi handle their relationship as exes come back, old pains resurface and secrets are revealed.

In an interview, Director Sigrid Andrea Bernardo shared that she had conceptualized the story of “Lulu” a long time ago and was just waiting for the right time to proceed with scriptwriting and make the story come alive on screen.

Thanks to Viva, girl love and boy love stories are not considered taboo, thus giving this award-winning writer and director the opportunity to share this realistic story and be enjoyed by open-minded viewers.

In Lulu, you’ll see a bubbly and quirky Rhen, which is very far from her sexy roles in her past projects. Director Sigrid also pointed out that “Lulu” is not heavy drama that is usually associated with lesbian love stories. It is actually a romantic comedy. Director Sigrid elaborates, “I wanted Lulu to be light. I want to focus doon sa individual struggles nila and love is secondary. And it will come naturally. Of course, we will tackle ’yong mga issues pero very, very subtle. It’s more of parang every-day life ng lesbian community.” Through this series, director Sigrid wants viewers to know the fun side of lesbian women. “Masayahin din sila,” she reiterates.

Rhen and Rita are both excited for the viewers to witness the love between Sophie and Abi. Rhen believes that there is nothing wrong with this kind of love because love knows no gender. As for Rita, she feels flattered for being given this special role. It’s no secret that she belongs to the lesbian community in real life. And just like her character Abi, she is also a chef and plays for an indie band.

Kiss N Tell Explores the Concept of Being a 'Rebound' in Sophomore Single "Lundag"

After being a finalist in HIMIG 11th edition, OPM band Kiss N Tell is ready to broaden its horizon by releasing its sophomore single “Lundag” under ABS-CBN’s rock and alternative label DNA Music.

“Lundag” is an emotional ode of someone who professes unconditional love to a special person even at the expense of suffering pain and without the security of being loved in return.

Kiss N Tell says the track verbalizes the sentiments of a ‘rebound’ in relationships. “Even just as a rebound or a wall to lean on, the person doesn't even bother thinking about the chance of being loved back, so long as the beloved is relieved of pain and suffering.”

“Lundag” was composed by band members Joshua Ortiz (rhythm guitar) and Aniceto Cabahug III (lead guitar) under the production of Gracenote’s Eunice Jorge and Velvet Playground.

Kiss N Tell is an alternative pop rock band formed in early 2019 who competed as one of the 12 finalists in ABS-CBN’s HIMIG 11th edition songwriting competition with its own composition “Pahina.”

Aside from Joshua and Aniceto, current members of the band include Lennix Purificacion (lead vocals), Arjumar Arbotante (bass guitar), Ronnel Navarro (keys), and Ernie Bañares (drums).

After their HIMIG stint where they showcased their complex yet sophisticated songwriting, the band members officially signed under DNA Music, an ABS-CBN Music record label that aims to uplift the local bands’ industry and help rock, alternative, and reggae artists shine.

Listen to Kiss N Tell’s new single “Lundag,” out now on various digital music platforms. For more details, follow DNA Music on Facebook (, Twitter and Instagram (@dnamusicph).
