Center Stage

IS IT true that Arjo Atayde and Maine Mendoza went on a short vacay in Bali, Indonesia?

Noticed by some netizens, the pictures were separately uploaded by Arjo and Maine's common friends on their social media accounts.

A netizen posted pictures of Arjo and Maine, both taken in Bali, Indonesia, insinuating that the two were there on the same date.

Though Arjo and Maine kept silent about it, our source gathered both of their pictures posted on each of their Instagram account.

In all fairness to Arjo and Maine, the pictures were grabbed from their friends social media account.

A picture of Maine seated on a large bird's nest wearing striped red sleeveless blouse was posted.

When another photo came out wherein Arjo and Ria Atayde with cousin and friends were taken, the same girl appeared on the background wearing the same blouse.

The large bird's nest is located in Umapakel Agro Tourism, a famous tourist destination in Tegallalang, Bali, Indonesia.

As of press time both keep mum about the issue.

Were they together in Bali for the

Arjo and Maine worked together in a movie titled "Jack Em Popy: Da Puliscredibles", a Metro Manila Film Festival 2018 entry topbilled by Coco Martin at Vic Sotto.


Speaking of the Ataydes.

Ria Atayde, younger sister of Arjo posted a cryptic message on her Twitter account.

"If a guy and girl are both single, they should be able to date whoever they want. And a genuine sign of support is if you let them, if you accept it and if you become happy for them even if they don’t go for the person you’re rooting for. Just my two cents.”

Ria's twitter post is the talk of the town on almost all social media.

Prior to the circulating news that Arjo and Maine were both seen in Bali, Indonesia, the "couple" were first seen eating out in a resto in Bonifacio Global City last October 20.

Ria did not mention any name, however, people are speculating that she was referring to Arjo and Maine.

Maine is very open that she is very much single.

Arjo, on the other hand admitted his relationship with Girltrends member Sammie Rimando in April 2018.

However, the latest update is that Sammie confessed that she and Arjo broke up very recently.

Is Ria's twitter status justify that her kuya is now single and ready to mingle?


Jolina Magdangal on possible reunion project with Marvin Agustin...

"Sana konektado sa Labs Kita, Okay Ka Lang? Kasi 20 years na yung pelikulang yun, e. So anong nangyari kay Ned at Bujoy talaga [after]."

According to Jolina, there are initial plans already, but they have yet to thoroughly talk about it.

"Yes. Actually, matagal na kami nagko-contact-an ni Marvin pero hindi lang talaga kami nabibigyan ng chance maupo at pag-usapan. Pero kung naalala ko two months ago, pagkagaling niya sa ibang bansa, sabi niya, yun daw yung aasikasuhin niya for ito hanggang 2019, dahil gusto nga talaga namin gumawa ng project na involved talaga kami. Gusto namin pelikula, e. Either co-prod or talagang hands on kami sa project, sa istorya, sa lahat."

For the movie's concept, Jolina wants to do a sequel of their 1998 movie Labs Kita, Okay Ka Lang?

In the hit movie, Jolina played Bujoy, a young girl who fell in love with her best friend, Ned.

Marvin played the Ned character.

In a separate interview with Marvin, he expressed delight over fans who still clamor for a MarJo reunion movie, especially when he posts throwback photos with Jolina.

"Nakakatawa kasi yung mga tao tuwang tuwa, kung ano-anong mga memories nakikita nila from those pictures. Sarap lang na natutuwa sila. I'm so happy because personally, I want to do a project with Jolina, not just because it's going to be a great project but you miss working with the person that you used to work almost everyday."

Marvin promised Jolina that he will take care of the project.

"Medyo nadelay lang kasi nabuntis nga si Jolina and I was away."

In May 2018, Jolina gave birth to her second child with Mark Escueta.

Marvin continued: "Ako actually nagsasabi sa kanya na pag-usapan natin, I promise you na akong maglalakad. ‘Yan ang sinabi ko sa kanya, ako ang mag-aasikaso para matuloy talaga at maganda yung project. So I messaged that to her. It's just the right project and the right timing, but basta may pinangako ako kay Jolina, e. Tutuparin ko yun."
