AJ Raval deleted all her Instagram posts after apologizing to Kylie Padilla, estranged wife of her rumored boyfriend Aljur Abrenica.
The 21-year-old Raval was sorry for sharing on Facebook Abrenica’s now controversial post in which he asked Padilla: “Who cheated first?”
Netizens started called Raval a “homewrecker,” “kabetsky,” (mistress), among other labels. She said she’s deactivating from social media in the meantime.
On the other hand, Padilla took to Instagram to express her state of mind: “I have all I could ever want already. Para sa lahat ng nag-aalala sa kin (To everyone who worry about me), I’m OK. Masaya ako (I’m happy) and I will protect my happiness. No matter what.”
That was Padilla’s full public reaction since Abrenica accused her of being unfaithful in their marriage. Earlier, she was posting titles and lyrics of songs about betrayal.
But showbiz media believed her not coming out with a categorical denial of Abrenica’s claim could mean it’s true.
Padilla has a mysterious fierce defender on social media including Facebook — Princess Paulino whom some media members and netizens say is her cousin.
Paulino wrote a hard-hitting open letter to Abrenica, saying Padilla never cheated on him, never said anything against him, and that he still owes Padilla money, that many times it was Padilla “who put food on the table.”
“Save some respect for yourself. Stop your LIES,” said Paulino.
On 22 October, a Filipino film started screening in 10 major cities in the United States.
Circle of Bones, an independent horror/action film, is written and directed by award-winning Filipino filmmaker Vincent Soberano.
The movie has Filipino and English dialogue and was shot in Panglao in Bohol, and Cainta, Rizal.
Here’s what the press material says:
Circle of Bones is about local superstitions and urban legends in the Visayas region. Set in the picturesque island of Panglao, the story is told by a lone survivor of a mysterious cult suspected of mass murders and human sacrifices.
Soberano recounts how the story developed: “I was location-hunting for another movie and I stumbled into a cult temple in Bohol. Curious, I started asking around, and based on stories from the locals, I came up with the new plot for Circle of Bones.”
Taiwan-born American actor and martial artist Sarah Chang stars with Jana Victoria, Marela Torre, Ian Ignacio and Epy Quizon, with a cameo appearance by Joel Torre.
“This movie is uniquely Filipino and features sights and stories never before seen by the US audience,” said Jared Safier, one of the executive producers and a four-time Emmy Award-winning producer. “I’m confident it will do well in the US market, both theatrically and on streaming platforms.”
This is the first time a Filipino movie has been released theatrically in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom by Vertical Entertainment, a top-ranked film distribution company based in Santa Monica, California, and founded by producers Richard B. “Rich” Goldberg and Mitch Budin in 2012.
Circle of Bones will also be released on Amazon Prime, iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV and other streaming platforms.
“Having a Filipino-made, independent film get a theatrical release throughout the US is a huge achievement for me,” said Soberano. “It gives me great pride as a Filipino filmmaker that I’ve gotten this far to represent Filipino films in the US mainstream market. Next step, worldwide distribution!”
