Viewers Relate to 'Hugot' Fest in iWantTFC’s Original Series “The Goodbye Girl”

The ‘hugot’-filled pilot episode of iWantTFC’s new original series “The Goodbye Girl” got viewers in their feelings with Angelica Panganiban’s scenes and lessons in dealing with heartbreak hitting close to home for them.

In the first episode of the six-part series, Yanna’s (Angelica) world crumbles when her husband (RK Bagatsing) of seven years breaks up with her to get back with his first love. One day, Yanna wakes up to find herself becoming an overnight online sensation because of a tearful and drunken rant about her husband during a livestream.

Yanna then finds a new purpose in life while trying to move on from her failed relationship – to give online advice to heartbroken people.

Netizens related to the show’s pilot episode and shared their praises and thoughts on social media.

“Vibe was so devastating, it matches the narrative. Angge acing the pilot episode. Short but subtle Ep 1. #TheGoodbyeGirl on @iwanttfc,” said Twitter user @JiemFrancThe.

“I thought I would be vulnerable this Valentine's because I don’t have a date but The Goodbye Girl was more painful. @angelica_114 you hurt me but you’re so great… Freeing yourself from the pain and accepting hardly acceptable events are the biggest move you could do to be better and from this you could ask forgiveness to yourself for hurting it. You have the biggest apology to make to yourself, so forgive it,” posted @RealKristian1.

“In fairness to the first episode, it’s great!! It really hurts when your partner still loves their ex. Tsk tsk. Anyways, Watch #TheGoodbyeGirl on iWantTFC app or website,” said @mglsrndo21.

The succeeding episodes feature Loisa Andalio as “The Clueless Girl,” who can’t figure out why no one is willing to stay with her, and Barbie Imperial as “The Other Girl,” a married man’s mistress. Maris plays “The Bitter Hopia,” who hopes her love for a friend gets reciprocated. Elisse, meanwhile, stars as “The Legally Blind,” a bride-to-be who puts up with his fiancé’s womanizing.

Philippines' Next Gen Leading Lady Francine Diaz Makes Her Debut in a METRO Cover

Francine Diaz, one of ABS-CBN’s most sought-after next gen leading ladies, continues her 18th birthday celebration with a classic-romantic fashion editorial. The gorgeous Star Magic artist makes her grand debut in a Metro digital cover, modeling dreamy and sparkly creations by fashion designer Michael Leyva.

Francine, whose breakout role was via the 2018 TV series “Kadenang Ginto,” is now making another breakthrough as a rising leading lady, this time without her “Gold Squad” co-members. She’s the star of the upcoming iWantTFC limited series “Bola Bola,” which features a coming-of-age story that delves on body positivity. In this new show, Francine is paired with three up-and-coming actors: Vance Larena, BGYO’s Akira Morishita, and KD Estrada.

In her exclusive interview on Metro.Style, the cover girl talks more about this upcoming project, as well as her struggles to get to where she is now, her thoughts on turning 18, despite being an old soul.

Francine’s three-cover special with Metro was revealed one by one through a livestream on “Metro Chats” via Kumu’s FYE Channel, and it was the first time this top fashion and lifestyle brand unveiled a cover in this manner. Francine dropped by the show, where the young star saw her covers for the first time, and she’s so happy with the shoot’s outcome because it was something she has never done before.

This cover was photographed by Seven Barretto, under the creative direction of Chookie Cruz and supervision of Metro.Style People section editor Grace Libero-Cruz. The glam team was composed of makeup artist Denise Go-Ochoa, hairstylist Brent Sales, and fashion stylists Drew Lacia and John Erick Reyes. The production design was by Dindo Pangalangan and Che Katigbak of Rooster Production Design. The video outputs were by Pat Buenaobra. The cover story was by Metro staff writer Renee Nuevo. The shoot was also made possible with coordination by Metro editor-in-chief Geolette Esguerra and managing Editor Ceia Ylagan.

ABS-CBN Film Restoration's Sagip Pelikula continues to celebrate the rich legacy of Philippine cinema by partnering with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) and the Manila Metropolitan Theater (MET), bringing back restored classics on the big screen through the free public screening event "Mga Hiyas ng Sineng Pilipino."

The film highlights the love story of a long-time couple in Jerry (Aga) and Agnes (Lea) and how they dealt with the struggles of their long-distance relationship - with Agnes rekindling her connection with her estranged mother abroad and Jerry pursuing his career. But this would then take a toll on them, making them fall out of love. Despite their past troubles, Jerry then follows her overseas with high hopes of reuniting with Agnes.

Alongside "Sana Maulit Muli," viewers can also watch other restored classics courtesy of the FDCP and the Philippine Film Archive (PFA), with titles "Dalagang Ilocana" (1954) starring Gloria Romero, Dolphy, Ric Rodrigo, and Tita de Villa and directed by Olive La Torre; and "Pagdating sa Dulo" (1971) helmed by National Artist Ishmael Bernal and top-billed by Nida Blanca, Eddie Garcia, Gloria Romero, Ronaldo Valdez, among many others.

Watch “The Batman” 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.

Kiss N Tell Paints a Picture of Exes Reuniting in "Exsena"

Alternative pop rock band Kiss N Tell illustrates the heart-wrenching scenario of former lovers crossing paths again in its new single “Exsena,” released under ABS-CBN’s DNA Music.

“Exsena,” a play on the Tagalog word ‘eksena’ and ‘ex’ for ex-lover, shows the bleak moment when exes meet each other once more and the corresponding memories and realizations that the said encounter conjures up.

The toned down, acoustic pop track was composed by band members Joshua Ortiz (rhythm guitar) and Aniceto Cabahug III (lead guitar) and produced by Gracenote’s Eunice Jorge and Velvet Playground - making it their second collaboration after the group’s previous release “Lundag.”

“Exsena” - which was included in Spotify Philippines’ New Music Friday editorial playlist - adds to Kiss N Tell’s catalogue of love-themed tunes that delve into the many faces of relationships following “Lundag” where the concept of being a ‘rebound’ was explored and the group’s HIMIG 11tth edition entry “Pahina” about bidding farewell to a lover for closure.

Joining Joshua and Aniceto in the band’s current lineup are Lennix Purificacion (lead vocals), Arjumar Arbotante (bass guitar), Ronnel Navarro (keys), and Ernie Bañares (drums).

Find out what it’s like to reunite with a past flame by streaming Kiss N Tell’s “Exsena,” out now on DNA Music’s YouTube channel and on various digital music platforms. For more details, follow DNA Music on Facebook (, Twitter and Instagram (@dnamusicph).

Kwentong Shopee: Valentine's Day Story of Shopee Seller Couple's Goal of Funding Their Dream Wedding and Honeymoon Turned Out to Be the Start of a Full-Scale Business that Transformed Their Lives

Having your life partner by your side through the good times and the bad is one of life’s greatest delights. While many believe that it’s not a good idea to start a business with your partner, the young couple behind the Shopee store BuyMore_Ph proves it can work. Rommel and Ajima’s inspirational love story and Shopee journey are testaments to how teamwork, trust, and communication can lead to success in their personal and professional lives.

Blossoming of the relationship and the beginning of their Shopee journey 

Rommel and Ajima started selling on Shopee in 2017 as a newly-engaged couple looking for a side hustle to fund their wedding and honeymoon. In their early days on Shopee, they would sell trendy items such as lip tints and ready-to-wear clothes for men and women.

They admit that it was not easy at first but what helped their business succeed was to tap into the current trends. The couple explained, “sumasabay kami sa uso para maka-attract ng customers at nagiging open kami to more variety sa shop namin para mas marami talaga bumili.” [“We had to ride on the trends during that time to offer customers with a wide variety of items that they would be interested in.”]

The turning point of their business happened in 2018 as their shop continued to perform well and more Filipinos began to embrace e-commerce. Rommel, then an IT specialist, and Ajima, a licensed tax consultant, made the crucial decision to quit their jobs and become full-time Shopee sellers. It was daunting, but the couple remained optimistic. After all, now they have more time together as they run their business. “Parang cheesy siya pero sa totoo lang mas masarap talaga mag work kung may goals kayo hanggang pagtanda,” shared Ajima. [“It’s quite cheesy but honestly it really feels so good to work with your partner when you have shared goals until you grow old together.”]

Growing together as husband and wife and business partners in life

When asked what their secret was, the couple says it’s learning how to manage their emotions, in and out of work. Rommel shares “Natutunan namin ihiwalay ang emotions sa trabaho as much as possible [“we learned to compartmentalize our emotions when it comes to the business], and we’re still learning everyday how to improve that. Hindi namin hinahayaan na mangibabaw ang emotions” [“we don’t let emotions get the best of us”], to which Ajima agreed and said, “More than husband and wife, we’re partners in everything

Their relationship wasn’t the only thing that grew due to their business. They also grew as individuals, becoming more empathetic and decisive in handling their employees was something new to the both of them. With their success, BuyMore_Ph has been able to grant invaluable opportunities to working students and individuals who lost their jobs due to the pandemic, and even some who were unable to finish their studies, especially during these more challenging times.

Rommel, who is more soft-spoken one among the couple, learned to go out of his comfort zone and lead his employees. “Hindi talaga ako masyado makausap sa tao, pero kailangan kong kausapin sila isa-isa para alamin kung ano ang problema.” [I’m not a very talkative and outspoken person but I had to learn how to talk to different kinds of people to resolve issues.] The couple recognizes the huge role their employees have in the success they’ve achieved. “Super thankful din kami sa kanila kasi nakahanap kami ng tao na may concern din sa kung paano namin pinahalagahan yung business namin,” [“we’re very grateful to have found people who value our business the way we do”] Rommel said.

Inspiring other couples to be persevering and entrepreneurial

The seller couple advises other Shopee sellers to not give up and to trust the process. There may be times when certain strategies don’t always work, but Rommel and Ajima believe that sticking together and enjoying the journey will ultimately reap rewards. Ajima reminds couples who also dream of becoming entrepreneurs to play to each other’s strengths and complement each other’s weaknesses, “kung ano kulang ng isa, napupunan ng isa.” [“whatever one lacks, the other will make up for”]

Rommel and Ajima never expected their once small goal of earning extra income to become a life-changing opportunity for them, their family, and their employees. BuyMore_Ph is now one of the top-selling stores on Shopee with over 1.9M followers. In a few months, Rommel, Ajima, and their almost one-year old baby (who was born during the 5.5 rush of 2021, no less) will move into their dream house. They continue to oversee more than 40 employees and the operations of their warehouse, as they venture into more ways to expand their business this 2022.

Jodi Sta. Maria Sleeps with Ketchup Eusebio to Uncover Zanjoe Marudo's Secret

Jill (Jodi Sta. Maria) successfully seduced Charlie (Ketchup Eusebio) into her trap as he revealed her husband David’s (Zanjoe Marudo) scheming financial transactions in the Kapamilya teleserye “The Broken Marriage Vow,” which airs weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, and TV5.

David has a lot more dirty secrets than Jill had imagined after she discovered that he used all of their savings, including the college fund of their son Gio (Zaijian Jaranilla), for his personal investments. Jill is also in disbelief after learning that David forged her signature in all of their important documents.

Because of this, Jill might have to put her annulment plans on hold until she is able to recover all of her finances. However, a major setback could further derail Jill’s plans as David’s multi-million project with the Luceros is in jeopardy of being discontinued.

David, meanwhile, is unaware of Jill’s motives as his problems suddenly begin to pile up. Lexy (Sue Ramirez), David’s mistress, has changed her mind about her baby and plans on leaving the country to get an abortion without informing David.

Growing impatient over David’s flip-flopping of promises, Lexy has given him an ultimatum to leave Jill or else she will end their relationship and get an abortion.

Aside from iWantTFC and Viu, “The Broken Marriage Vow” can also be seen on weeknights at 8:40 PM on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, TV5, and Kapamilya Online Live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. Viewers who use any digital TV box at home such as the TVplus box only need to rescan their device to be able to watch “The Broken Marriage Vow” on TV5 and A2Z.

Marjorie Barretto’s Latest Vlog Highlights VP Leni Robredo as ‘Chief Homemaker’

Actress Marjorie Barretto got a chance to discover first-hand presidential candidate and Vice President Leni Robredo as a “Chief Homemaker” during the shoot of her vlog released on Sunday.

Acting both as father and mother to her three daughters, Robredo told Barretto that she has learned to become a Chief Homemaker in their household, similar to how she performs her duties as Vice President.

They also discussed almost about anything under the sun, talking about how they are both as mothers and their family life. Robredo revealed that she’s generous to her children and she always joins them while doing their favorite things.

They also shared stories about their children while cooking chicken casserole and discussed Robredo’s plans for the Filipino youth, opening them to opportunities to become volunteers or future leaders of the country.

The shooting of the vlog went along smoothly as Robredo was easy to get along with and so much easy to talk to, according to Barretto.

What I learned about VP Leni during the shoot is how much fun she is. How much she laughs,” Barretto said when asked about her experience working up close and personal with the Vice President. “She is so humble and relatable,” the actress added.

Robredo, who admitted that she regularly watches Barretto’s vlog even before, expressed her gratitude to Marjorie and her family for their support for her candidacy.

Barretto and her children are among the countless celebrities who have expressed support for Robredo’s presidential bid.

Explaining her decision, Barretto said she decided to back Robredo because of the Vice President’s genuine concern for the youth.

I am supporting VP Leni, because I see how much she cares for the youth. How she empowers and believes in them,” Barretto said.

Being a mother to 5 children, it made me appreciate the fact that she had a solid plan for them,” she added.

She also described Robredo as intelligent, compassionate and selfless for opting to continue to serve the country against all odds.
