HOW well do fans know their idols?

One may think there’s an information overload, thanks to social media showing snippets of celebrities’ fabulous lives and capturing them in their element—whether they are acting or performing or posing for a shoot.

But for the fans who can’t get enough of their favorite stars, all tidbits matter.

Lx2 Entertainment’s “Things You Should Know” series is packed with revelations made by the celebrities themselves.

It’s freestyle, fun and fresh. It’s unfiltered and unpretentious.

Its pilot episode features “LoiNie,” the portmanteau of Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte’s names.

Here’s a sample of Loisa and Ronnie’s natural chemistry and candor.

The young lady is the first to squeal on Ronnie’s poor performance in school.

She deftly asks her 24-year-old boyfriend, “Di ba dati na-kick out ka sa school niyo?”

The actor admits, “Umulit ako kasi sobrang pasaway talaga ako. Imbes na papasukan ko yung umagang class ko, nagba-basketball na ako sa court ‘tapos may dala akong pitong puti..”

The 22-year-old actress throws in, “Na damit, na T-shirt?”

Smiling, she assures Ronnie, “Ball is life. Pinagdadaanan naman talaga yun. Wala namang perpektong estudyante.”

The important thing is that he is now a “good boy,” and has since turned the tables.

He says, “Dun ako nagtino. Kasi dati pinag-aaral ako ng magulang ko ‘tapos ganun ginagawa ko. Nung ako nagpaaral sa sarili ko, scholar.”

Loisa gives Ronnie a thumbs-up and says, “From cutting classes to scholar. Di ba nakaka-proud?”

When it is Ronnie’s turn to reveal something about the Pinoy Big Brother alumna, he begins, “Boyish ka pala.”

Clad in a girly outfit, Loisa quips, “Anong boyish? Pagkatapos kong mag-tube dito, sabihan mo akong boyish?

Ronnie goes on recalling one of their conversations.

“Napagkukuwentuhan din natin dati. Sinasabi mo nung high school, elementary, lagi kang napapatrobol.”

Loisa asks, “Anong trobol?”

Ronnie elaborates, “Kumbaga, ikaw yung siga sa school niyo, kahit lalaki pinapatulan mo.”

The young lady who was born and raised in Parañaque then affirms, “Kaya ko kasing lumaban. May mga friends akong binu-bully, siyempre, meron namang, may purpose naman yung ginagawa ko. Ang siga-siga ko dati sa school.”

And partly, it is also because “mga tropa ko kasi talaga dati, puro lalaki, one of the boys kasi talaga ako.”

Here’s another trivia: Ronnie is scared of cockroaches and dogs.

And the more interesting trivia is that Loisa is not scared of cockroaches at all.

She exclaims, “Kaya kong hawakan yung ipis, ‘tapos igaganyan ko sa kanya, hindi niya kaya talaga. Kahit ganyan lang, titigan, hindi niya kaya.”

Looking at Ronnie, Loisa asks, “Bakit ba ayaw mo ng ipis?”

He replies, “Nakakadiri. Ang baho-baho pa ng ipis. At saka takot ako sa lumilipad.”

But with Loisa’s influence, he was able to overcome his fear of dogs.

Loisa recounts, “Sobrang takot siya sa dogs. Shih tzu. Maliliit. Tinatakbuhan niya yun.”

Why?

Ronnie interjects, “Hindi dati kasi feeling ko, lahat ng aso nangangagat.”

Loisa chuckles, “Nangangagat naman talaga sila.”

It turns out, the Kapamilya actor had a traumatic experience.

“Kasi dati, may alaga rin naman kaming aso, nakagat si kuya, yung kapatid ko. ‘Tapos, yung aso namin na iyon, hindi ko talaga nalalapitan, hindi ko talaga nahahawakan kasi takot talaga ako.”

Thanks to Loisa, who loves dogs because they are “loyal and trustworthy,” Ronnie got over his trauma this pandemic.

He relates, “Masarap palang mag-alaga ng aso. Hindi kasi, ayun nga, dati kasi akala ko aso, aso lang. Papakainin mo lang. Alagang aso lang. Para na din palang anak mo na din sila. Kaya yun, dun ako napamahal sa aso simula noong pandemic. So simula po nung pandemic, 16 po yung dogs namin.”

Loisa adds, “Kasi yung mga alaga natin, nabubuhay sila na tayo yung kasama nila, at hindi naman kasing-haba ng life natin yung life ng dogs, di ba? Kaya gusto kong ibigay sa kanila yung best life habang nabubuhay sila sa mundong ito. Kaya sobrang love ko sila.”

The 14-minute video has more astounding details that will endear the LoiNie love team to the fans more.
