‘Love Life with Kris’ is All-Set to Premiere on August 15

The Queen of All-Media, Kris Aquino is set to have her television comeback via Love Life with Kris on TV 5, on Saturday, August 15, from 5-6 pm.


After a long hiatus and shunning away from the public’s eye, where she stayed in a resort in Puerto Galera, Mindoro, the 49-year-old single mom-host-actress-and entrepreneur is perhaps a more mature and a wiser individual in tackling life’s journey.

In an interview with the selected press, her response to a question that pertains to her love life, “Habang nabubuhay, huwag mawalan ng pag-asa. ‘Yun lang ang sagot ko (and laughs her heart out).”

To the surprise of many, Aquino also shares what her new belief system is all about. The question was about her former husband’s failed relationship with an Italian woman.

“To something that no longer involves me, I should never comment about it. It’s part of my past, and it should remain in my past.”

In the course of the interview, she still wants to work with Willie Revillame. She also declares that she and Boy Abunda [still] loves each other. Lastly, in the not-too-distant future, she dreams of dwelling in a home by the lake or owning a beach resort.


In her upcoming show, she is the Creative Head.

“I’m a fan of Tyler Perry. So, I’ve been watching ‘The Haves and the Have- Nots’ because it was that show of Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), when it started, medyo tagilid… and then, Tyler came in. It’s now, if I’m not mistaken, on its seventh season. Nakita ko ‘yung credits, it says executive produced, created, written, and directed by Tyler Perry.

“So, sabi ko, sige, tanggalin na natin ‘yung executive producer. Hindi ko ‘yan pinapangarap dahil mababaliw lang ako. Pero gusto ko ‘yung ‘created by, written, and hosted by Kris Aquino’.”

Fluid: Entertaining and Not Imposing!

How does a straight woman feel about a series of heartaches brought about by men cheating in relationships? There is no doubt that women get exhausted and miserable. Benedict Mique in his latest iWant series, FLUID, stars Roxanne Barcelo as Mitch

Recently, Mitch had a bad break-up with her boyfriend, Jacob (Joross Gamboa). To help her move on, three of her girlfriends–Portia, Wings, and JM (Zar Donato, Emmanuelle Vera, and Joanna Marie Katanyag, respectively) agreed to help her.

Through Portia’s party, Mitch met George (Ann Colis), a tall, dusky, and gorgeous femme. They had a good conversation that led to exchanging SMS and eventually had dates.

Casting both Barcelo and Colis is perfect–as Mitch, the bombshell cakemaker-entrepreneur and George, the statuesque, freelance colorist. What’s impressive about Colis is that–in real life, she’s straight and the first Filipina to win Miss Globe 2015

Colis as a woman who pursues Mitch; her acting is effortless. She reminds me of two people I know. Jacob appears in the second episode’s tail-end while talking to Wings over a mobile phone conversation. It was such a cliffhanger for the audience to be excited about for the next episode.

What’s notable about Mique, he can present such themes with ease and entertaining at the same time. His work with Two Love You is a testament to such. Fluid is funny, but not something that is forcibly imposed and rammed into anybody’s throat. It was executed well.

Other memorable cast members in the series are Janice de Belen and Dylan Talon; they’re hilarious.

The streaming on iWant began on March 13. Episodes Three and Four are available on March 16.


SANA ALL: On Wines, Passion, Love, and Heartaches

After the success of On Vodka, Beers, and Regrets; comes another love story starring Meg Imperial and Arvic Tan as the lead stars in Sana All.


Both Imperial and Tan are reunited in the said film, and this time as the lovers who have issues they need to come to terms with. Their paths crossed because of one passion and that is the intoxicating rice wine called Tapuey

From the story imagined by JF Fulgencio and a screenplay by Enrique Villasis–the two characters met in a chance encounter in La Union.


Meg plays Iyam, granddaughter of Lola Ingga (Lita Loresca), a renowned Tapuey-maker in the town of Adams.  Iyam is about to take over their rice wine business, but the drink that she makes doesn’t meet her grandma’s standards. Lola Ingga points out that it lacks an important ingredient, and that’s passion.


Arvic, on the other hand, plays Syd, a guy from Manila who, together with his friend Joan (Andrew Muhlach), is on a quest for the sweetest Tapuey. His search leads to Adams, where he meets Iyam for the second time. 


Since Lola Ingga knows that Iyam is capable of producing best-tasting Tapuey because she had done so in the past. Lola Ingga and her grandson Timo (Pio Balbuena), Iyam’s cousin, are convinced that Iyam will regain her passion for Tapuey-making if she falls in love. Together they hatch a plan without Iyam’s knowledge about it. 

Sana All, which was shot entirely in Adams, one of the scenic gems of Ilocos Norte will open in cinemas nationwide on March 25. It is directed by Bona Fajardo
