Latest News Philippines: Raymart: Claudine and I are okay – Journal.com.ph:

AS expected, the PRs in “Home Sweet Home” warned writers in its presscon not to ask  Raymart Santiago any personal questions about his reported marital problems. But is his home really sweet these days? “Kung minsan, sweet; kung minsan, maalat,” he says. He adds later: “Okay naman kami ni Claudine ngayon.”

What about Claudine’s conflict with her sisters Gretchen and Marjorie Barretto over her niece Julia who’s now being built up by ABS-CBN? Some quarters say this is just a gimmick to drum up interest in Claudine’s alleged comeback as a Kapamilya actress. “I know she has an offer from ABS but it’s best na sila na lang ang tanungin n’yo.”

When he’s not acting, he’s busy with their resto business, Red Garlic, which will soon have a branch at the Fort. How are their kids, Sabina and Santino? “Gustong mag-showbiz. Tinatanong when they’ll appear on TV. But we told them ‘wag muna. Mag-aral na lang muna sila bago mag-artista.”

In “Home Sweet Home” that starts airing on Monday replacing “Smile Dong Hae” before “24 Oras,” Raymart plays Reden Caharian, husband of Roxanne Guinoo, with Jake Vargas, Jillian Ward and Rain Quite as their kids. Their family’s peaceful life changes because of an old abandoned house in their place that turned out to be inhabited by ghosts: Celia Rodriguez, Arthur Solinap and Patricia Ismael. Directed by Gil Tejada, “Home Sweet Home” is in the tradition of GMA7’s family-oriented, child-friendly shows like “Bantatay,” “Daldalita” and “Magic Palayok,”  all hits.


KATRINA Halili is back before the cameras after giving birth to her and Kris Lawrence’s baby girl named Katrence. She now plays the role of an evil diwata with a kilometric name, Burigadang Pada Sinaklang Bulawan, in “Indio.”

“I first appeared as myself in ‘Magpakailanman’s’ Katrina Halili Story’,” she says. “Pero itong sa ‘Indio,’  iba na ito kasi regular na uli ang taping ko. Medyo naninibago ako kasi nga may baby na ako, but I’d like to thank everyone in the show kasi they made me feel comfortable from Day One. My baby was born on September 18 last year. Seven months na siya ngayon kaya puwede na akong magtrabaho uli.”

Her role in “Indio” is that of the villain Diwata ng Pagkaganid or the Goddess of Greed, the sister of Paiburong (Mike Gayoso) who Bong Revilla as Indio has slain. Katrina learns from Sidapa, the Diwata ng Kamatayan (Ryan Eigenmann), that Indio killed her brother and she vows revenge. But first, she has to face Diwatang Magayon (Rhian Ramos) who’ll defend Indio. Meantime, Indio is about to meet again with Esperanza (Jennylyn Mercado).


EUGENE Domingo has found her Japanese leading man in her new movie, “Instant Mommy,” the directorial debut of award-winning production designer, Leo Abaya, and a co-production between Atty. Joji Alonso, Kris Aquino and Director Chris Martinez. This is U.S.-based Japanese actor Yuki Matzusaki, who has appeared in Hollywood films like “Letters from Iwo Jima,” “Pink Panther 2” and “Pirates of the Carribean.” Uge plays Betchay, a wardrobe mistress for TV commercials, while Yuki is her Japanese lover. Uge continues to host “Celebrity Bluff” and the cooking show “Del Monte Kitchenomics” with Chef Dino Ferrari.

This week, Del Monte Kitchenomics goes to Bukidnon, a beautiful hilly place with acres and acres of pineapple plantations. Treat your tummy with their sumptuous dishes as Chef Dino cooks a Bukidnon signature dish with a twist, Sinuglaw (kinilaw fish and pork) made with Del Monte Pineapple Tidbits. Del Monte Kitchenomics is shown Wednesday and Saturday before Eat Bulaga and Sunday 10:30 a.m. on GMA7.


HEART Evangelista’s hit afternoon soap, “Forever,”  is ending this Friday. She and Geoff Eigenmann will go through more trials and tribulations before their love story that spans two generations finally ends. “Maraming maiiyak sa ending,” says Heart. “Kung ako mismo, naiyak, e. Kundi man magkaroon ng katuparan ang pag-iibigan namin in this world, makakamit naman namin ang pag-ibig na walang hanggan later on.”

What about her real life romance with Sen. Chiz Escudero? How is it going? “Well, we’re both wishing maging ‘Forever’ din ang relationship namin. I’m taking a vacation in the U.S. after ‘Forever’ ends para makapag-rest naman ako.”

Heart now runs her own career but she continues to pray that the rift between her parents and her sweetheart will soon be patched up.


EAT Bulaga execs Tony Tuviera and Malou Choa-Fagar honored their 30 scholars who graduated from high school with a dinner party at Plaza Ibarra. Hosted by Wally Bayola and Ruby Rodriguez, the graduates were interviewed on stage and they all expressed their endless gratitude to TAPE and Eat Bulaga. TAPE’s SVP for Creative Jenny Ferre tells us the project started in 2009 when “Eat Bulaga” celebrated its 30th anniversary. “30th year namin so we chose 30 scholars through a rigorous screening process held nationwide,” she says. “Nakakatuwa dahil after, four years, ayan, graduates na sila and we’re so proud as most of them are honor students, maraming valedictorians at tatlo ang nakapasok sa UP. It’s been decided na itutuloy namin ang scholarship nila hanggang college in the course of their choice, and by 2017, we expect marami na sa kanila ang tapos ng college.

Sana, just like in high school, walang magbigay sa’min ng problema na nagkabisyo o nag-asawa ng maaga. We monitor them naman and we’re so glad kasi ‘yung financial support we gave them, ginamit din pala ng iba sa pagnenegosyo ng pamilya o sa pag-aaral ng iba pang kapatid.”
