Blood, slaps and little drama

Jun Nardo



Alden Richards once more showed his support for the bloodletting project of GMA Kapuso Foundation and Philippine National Red Cross, held recently at GMA Network Center.

In an interview, the Pambansang Bae said in Filipino, “I thought, what would be the sense in going if I myself will not donate blood? So, to make this visit worthwhile, I always donate every time I get invited.”

The first time he went to the bloodletting, he was simply requested to say hello to the donors and encourage everyone to donate blood. He decided to donate blood, too. “It is a rewarding feeling more than the physical pain. It’s such a different feeling because it is your blood, part of your life, so it is like you gave your life to them.”

On @kapusoprgirl Instagram, Alden showed the bag containing the blood he donated.


Actress Gladys Reyes recently conducted a one-day acting workshop on TV and movies for 60 De La Salle University students and they got to experience the contravida image.

Gladys said school officials took notice of her announcement on her TV show and sent her a message requesting her to hold an acting workshop for their communication arts students.

“At first, I was hesitant. Maybe the millennials did not know me anymorea. But when I went to meet them, I was amazed that they did!” the actress said.

Before the end of the workshop, the students made a strange request: to do a scene where Gladys would slap some of the participants.

“I was shocked by their request. I had no choice by grant them. I must have slapped quite a few, but it wasn’t that hard,” she laughed.

Gladys posted her workshop experience on her Instagram account.

“I had so much fun with you guys on our acting workshop! Thank you for having me at De La Salle University,” she captioned a photo with her students.


The call of Regal Films to bring back the film Elise on cinemas paid off.

The movie that stars Janine Gutierrez and Enchong Dee was pulled out a day after its opening day last 7 February in some theaters.

The incident prompted Regal producers to hold a pocket press conference at the lobby of SM Megamall cinemas with the stars of the film, its director Joel Ferrer and some members of media.

“ELISE” returns to select cinemas after good reviews.

At a recent press preview of the movie, Elise earned good praises from the press and bloggers. Film critics likewise wrote positive reviews about the film that got a Grade A from the Cinema Evaluation Board.

As of press time, more cinemas are screening Elise except for a major chain of cinemas.
