AFTER playing a vital role in "Wildflower" aired on ABS-CBN, Sunshine Cruz moved to GMA network.

Some netizens were dismayed when Shine made a move to accept her latest stint on GMA.

The actress will be doing a role in the network's latest soap "Karibal Ko Ang aking Ina".

She will be joining Zoren Legaspi, Bea Binene, Benjamin Alves, David Licauco, and Bing Loyzaga.

However, according to Shine it's a blessing for her.

“Blessing ‘yan for me. More work, more fun,”

“The role is very interesting. Fashionista ako dito.

“Something new. I’m really excited."

Shine defended that she signed a show contract with GMA and also with ABS-CBN when she joined the now defunct show "Wildflower".

“Nagpaalam naman po kami nang maayos sa ABS-CBN.

“Malaki ang utang na loob ko sa ABS-CBN.

“Nabuhay ko nang maayos ang kids ko dahil sa series na ginawa ko sa kanila.

“Non-exclusive naman po ako and puwede kahit saan.

“I’m just grateful na nabibigyan tayo ng trabaho madalas.”

“Sana ay maintindihan ng mga tao kung bakit kailangan niyang magtrabaho sa ibang network.

“They have to understand that I love working, and it’s important for me na palaging may work.

“It’s a blessing to be given this kind of opportunity.

“Blessing ito, not just for me but for my children as well.”

“At the end of the day, work is work, and we should always be thankful for the opportunity and trust given to us.”


Filipino-Australian model Jodie Tarasek says Paulo Avelino has "everything you would want" in a boyfriend.

Jodie admitted that the past year went by so fast, but she couldn't be more thankful to have a very supportive boyfriend like Paulo.

Jodie said, "He's been nothing more than supportive throughout everything in my life.

"You know, if I wanna stay in bed all day and sleep, he'll be supportive of that.

"Or if I take on hosting, he'll be supportive of that as well.

"I'm very lucky to have him."

The 22-year-old model is now easing her way into the entertainment industry as the newest host of MTV Philippines.

She went on to say that Paulo has been supportive of her very first hosting stint, but that they don't really interfere with each other's work-related decisions.

Jodie explained, "Me and Paulo, we're very respectful of each other's work.

"We never tell each other not to do anything. I'd like to think that we're both mature adults.

"And what I do is what I do and, and what he does is what he does."

Jodie added, "Our relationship is fantastic, actually.

"He's incredible. He's so good to me.

"And I couldn't be more thankful to have him in my life."

More than their romantic relationship, Jodie pointed out that she has found a best friend in Paulo.

"He's everything you would want. He's someone who is so supportive.

"He's like my best friend and my boyfriend all in one.

"But more than that, the thing that I appreciate most about him is that he gives me his time.

"No matter how busy his schedule can get, he's gonna come back and like, he always makes up for it.

"He's 'the boyfriend.' Maybe that's the best way to say it."

It was in July 2017 when word got out that Paulo is dating the Fil-Aussie model.

The Kapamilya actor has always maintained a low-key relationship with Jodie, preferring to give details about their romance to a bare minimum.

Jodie, however, seemed comfortable relating how she and Paulo started dating.

She recalled, "We met through a mutual friend that I shot with.

"His close friend is a director and I did a TVC with him and we just got in touch through him.

"It was a totally unexpected thing but we just clicked, like we had known each other for a long time.

"Since then, we were inseparable, after our first date, we spent almost every single day together and here we are, one year later."


Alessandra de Rossi denied that she is in a relationship with singer-actor Marc Abaya.

The 33-year-old actress said, “I’ve always been single and available, you know that.”

When told that showbiz insiders have known about their romance for some time now, Alessandra pointed out that she never made an official statement about dating Marc.

Downplaying queries about her love life, she reasoned, “May sinabi ba ako ever? Wala naman.

“Halungkatin niyo kung saan ko sinabi yun. Parang wala naman.”

At this point in her life, Alessandra insisted that she’s not interested in having a boyfriend.

“Hindi ko rin siya naiisip. I am single, and available, and a pretty girl.”

Steering the conversation away from her relationship status, Alessandra jokingly attempted to kiss her “Since I Found You” co-star Empoy Marquez.

She exclaimed, "Sweet din kami ni Empoy. Bakit sa iba palaging may malisya, sa 'yo wala?"

While they are often seen vacationing together, in and out of the country, Alessandra and Marc have been evasive about the real score between them.

It was only Marc who spoke about his closeness with Alessandra whom he described as “beautiful, very passionate, and kindhearted” person.
