Toni Gonzaga is one of the most well-known hosts in the Philippine showbiz industry. The versatile actress has been on the entertainment industry ever since she was a teen. Toni started as a talented actress in movies and commercials, but as she matured, she also delved into hosting and business. Recently, she just celebrated her 20th year in showbiz.
According to Toni Gonzaga, one of her secrets in being a successful artist is by being “wholesome.” In her interview with Boy Abunda, the 36-year-old actress claimed that she always pay respect to her parents. Without their guidance and love, she would never enjoy her achievements in life.
Toni also compared her journey with Tito Boy, who is also known for his unconditional love for his mother. The renowned host popularized the catchphrase “Make your mama proud.” According to Toni, this is also her mantra in life in whatever she pursues, be it her career or business.
“You are very grounded, Tito Boy. The reason why you are doing your work is to make your Nanay proud. Tumatak sa akin ‘yun. Lagi kong iniisip kung magiging proud din ba ang Mama ko sa mga gagawin at sasabihin ko sa telebisyon. More than your brilliance as a host, what I admire about you is your love for your family and mother,” says Toni.
Upon hearing this, Tito Boy immediately teared up. Just last year, his beloved mother passed away, that’s why Toni’s kind words truly moved his heart. Furthermore, according to Toni, she attributes her success to her husband, Paul and their 3-year-old son, Seve.
“I have evolved into a different woman and celebrity. Mas grounded na sa family because I now have Paul and Seve.” Just recently, Toni Gonzaga launched a new company called “Everyday,” which sells products that aim to make you more productive in your daily life.

Ara Mina, Naiyak Matapos Pag-Usapan ang Kalagayan ng Kapatid Niya na May Down Syndrome
Down syndrome is a life-long condition which impairs the cognitive, verbal, social abilities of the individual. This condition is a challenge not only to the person, but also to their family or loved ones. Former actress Ara Mina knows the challenges of this situation too well, because she also has a sister who was diagnosed with Down syndrome.
Ara Mina’s youngest sister, Mina Princess Klenk, also referred to as “Batching,” was diagnosed with Down syndrome. Right from the start, the former actress has always been open about their struggles as sisters. In spite of that, she never stopped supporting and loving Batching.
“To be honest, medyo mahirap. Pero mas hirap ’yung mommy ko. ’Pag hirap na ’yung mommy ko, pinapasa niya na sakin si Mina kasi they (people with Down syndrome) have tantrums. Dapat dalasan ‘yung activities. I-treat sila as normal para maging normal din ’yung mga actions nila.”
During her interview, Ara couldn’t help but turn emotional as she looks back on their struggles in taking care of Batching. On the brighter side, she also shared that Batching has a celebrity crush, and she even pretended that he was the father of her imaginary baby.
“May crush to! Diba sabay sabay kaming nagbuntis ng sisters ko, sabi niya (Batching) one time ‘Ate buntis ako.’ I asked her, ‘Sinong tatay?’ Si Paulo Avelino daw. Pag tinanong mo siya kung kanino siya sasama, sa’kin daw or kay Holy (their brother).”
Ara Mina continued her advocacy in helping children with Down Syndrome. The actress shared the cause is close to her heart because of her sister. In 2018, the former actress organized a fun run for young people with Down syndrome. This event was also spearheaded by many celebrities.

Jinkee, Nagsalita na Tungkol sa Diumano’y Utang na P100K ni Heaven Peralejo
Earlier this week, showbiz columnist Lolit Solis made news on social media following her revelation about Heaven Peralejo. According to Lolit, the young ABS-CBN talent allegedly asked for money from her the family of her ex-boyfriend. As you may well know, Heaven briefly dated Senator Manny Pacquiao’s eldest son, Jimuel, but their relationship was short-lived.
According to Lolit, Heaven allegedly asked for help from Senator Manny via text. However, his wife Jinkee intercepted the message and got irate. Jinkee was allegedly annoyed that the young actress will come to Manny instead of her. In the end, she sent P100,000 to Heaven so that she will stop contacting them.
However, in her recent update on Instagram, Jinkee denied these rumors. According to her, Heaven did not ask them for help. She also asked the netizens to stop criticizing Heaven Peralejo and her family.
“Gusto ko lang pong sabihin sa lahat about sa issue na lumabas na nanghingi raw si Heaven ng pera sa amin ay hindi po totoo! Hindi po siya nanghingi at wala po kaming binigay na pera. Tigilan na po ang pambabash sa kanila na wala pong katotohanan! Be at peace with everyone. Love one another. God bless us all.”
On the other hand, even Jimuel also cleared Heaven’s name. Before Jinkee posted it on Instagram, Jimuel already addressed this issue on his account. He told the netizens to stop spreading rumors and fake news online, and claimed that he is currently in good terms with his ex-girlfriend.
“I would like to clarify that the issue posted by Lolit Solis and fashionpulis about Heaven is false. There was no money given and there was no communication. We keep getting involved in these issues and I just want to clear things up. She is not that type of girl and we are in good terms so no need for all the bashing.”

Janella Salvador, Buntis nga ba Kaya Nagtatago Ngayon sa Abroad?
Earlier this week, Janella Salvador and her boyfriend, Markus Paterson finally admitted their relationship to the public. Markus shared a telling video on Instagram, which shows him and the Kapamilya actress intimately dancing. This big announcement thrilled many fans, who were delighted to see that Janella is finally happy with her love life.
Shortly after they’ve made their announcement, another controversy spread on social media. As you may well know, the 22-year-old actress is currently living together with her boyfriend in the United Kingdom. Markus often shares their happy moments together on social media, so their fans are always updated.
However, in one post, some keen netizens noticed something odd. In a live stream session, Markus and his friends can be seen having fun in the backyard. Janella can be heard in the background, however she’s not actively participating. When they tried to call her out, Janella answered back.
She responded by saying: “Oh my god, I almost jumped and that’s not good. I’m not allowed to jump.” According to some fans, there was no viable reason for Janella to not jump, since she has no medical condition whatsoever. Therefore, her statement can only mean that she might be pregnant.
This odd statement immediately fueled rumors that the actress might be carrying Markus’ baby. This is not the first time that netizens suspected the actress.
A few weeks ago, several fans also asked Janella’s mom if the actress is giving birth in the UK. However, until now, both parties involved remain silent about this issue.
For now, it seems like Markus and Janella are still enjoying their time in the UK. Only time can tell if the netizens’ speculations about the actress are indeed true.
