Sanya at Thea, may common crush

Ni NORA CALDERON

REUNION nina Sanya Lopez at Thea Tolentino ang kanilang bagong afternoon prime drama series na Haplos. Una silang nagkasama sa longest running afternoon prime ng GMA-7na The Half Sisters na gumanap si Sanya bilang best friend ng bidang si Barbie Forteza at kontrabida nila si Thea na produkto ng talent search na The Protege.

Naging isa sa mga bida sa Encantadia si Sanya at napasama naman si Thea sa Destined To Be Yours bilang kontrabida nina Alden Richards at Maine Mendoza. Ngayon, super ang pagkakontrabida ni Thea kay Sanya sa pagganap nila bilang step-sisters. 

SANYA AT THEA copy copy

Okey lang ba kay Thea na kontrabida na naman siya sa bago niyang soap?

“Opo, challenge sa akin na maging villain, saka naiiba po ang story ng Haplos,” sagot ni Thea. “May touch of enchantment po ang story namin, at sa akin napunta ang role ni Lucille, na may shades ng witchcraft o pangkukulam ang character niya. Nagpi-pray nga po ako tuwing may tsina-chant ako sa eksena.”

“Happy po ako nang makasama ko ulit si Thea,” sabi naman ni Sanya. “Kahit magkaiba ang character namin sa story, dahil ako naman si Angela, na may power naman to heal, kaya ginagamit ko iyon sa kabutihan, at enjoy kami tuwing taping break namin.”

Going strong ang relationship nina Thea at Mikoy Morales, pero na-curious kami na may crush sila ni Sanya, na masama nilang pinagkukuwentuhan. Tinukoy ni Thea ang crush nila, pero nakiusap na huwag isulat dahil nahihiya raw sila ni Sanya. Kapuso rin ang actor na pinapanood nila sa soap nito.

Inamin naman ni Sanya na naging crush niya noon si Ivan Dorschner bago pa ito napunta sa GMA Network at nakasama ng kuya niyang si Jak Roberto sa katatapos na romantic-comedy na Meant To Be.

“Nag-audition din po si Ivan dito sa Haplos pero hindi raw bagay sa kanya ang role, kaya hindi siya natuloy na magkasama kami. Once ko lang siyang na-meet noon.”

Napangiti si Sanya nang ususain namin kung kailan idi-deliver ang brand new car na gusto niyang bilhin.

“Wala pa po naman, pero gusto ko sana Montero Ford Everest, para magamit ko sa tapings ko. Gusto ko po kasi cash ko itong bayaran, kung kakayanin ko, kaya wish ko pong madagdagan pa ang income ko, like magkaroon ako ng endorsement.”

Mapapanood na simula sa Lunes, Hulyo 10, ang Haplos na tampok din sina Rocco Nacino, Pancho Magno, Celia Rodriguez, Francine Prieto at iba pa, mula sa direksiyon ni Gil Tejada, pagkatapos ng Impostora.

Diego, naparamdaman ng multo sa set

Ni: Reggee Bonoan

INAMIN ng isa sa cast ng Bloody Crayons na si Diego Loyzaga sa kanilang presscon na may naramdaman siya habang sinu-shoot nila ang pelikula.

“I had a creepy experience doon sa bahay kung saan kami nag-shooting. Nu’ng minsang napagod ako, umupo ako sa isang rocking chair sa may sala at nakatulog ako. Pagkagising ko, mabigat na ‘yung pakiramdam ko. Parang nilalagnat ako at nangangalay ‘yung leeg ko. Eh, di ba, sabi nila ibig sabihin nu’n may nakasakay na multo sa batok mo?” kuwento ng aktor.

DEIGO AT SOFIA copy

Pero hindi lang si Diego ang may naramdaman sa set, pati na ang ilang crew ng Bloody Crayons.

Kapag horror ang tema ng pelikula, laging may kakaibang nararamdaman sa shooting ang production lalo na kapag lumang bahay ang ginamit.

Anyway, ipinagmamayabang ni Diego na napakaganda ng Bloody Crayons.

“Hindi ko sinasabi ito dahil lang kasama ako sa cast, pero nu’ng nabasa ko ‘yung script, nagustuhan ko talaga siya, to the point na papanoorin ko siya kahit wala ako sa cast,” sabi ng aktor na kasama rin sa seryeng Pusong Ligaw bilang ka-love team ni Sofia Andres na nasa pelikula rin.

“Kakaiba siya (movie nila) kasi walang multo sa story. Wala ring sinasapian. Hindi nga ito horror, eh. Suspense thriller ito. Wala pa akong nakikita o napapanood na local movie na ganu’n kaya confident akong sabihin na kakaiba nga ang Bloody Crayons.”

Kuwento naman ni Sofia, “Naging fun ang shooting namin dahil kay Direk Topel Lee. Parang kaibigan lang namin siya sa set, eh. Once, nagalit siya sa amin pero hindi siya sumigaw. Hindi siya mahilig magtaas ng boses, eh. Actually, kung narinig mo siya nu’n, hindi mo aakalaing galit siya kasi chill lang siya. Pero he’s very good at what he does.”

Nagkakaisa ang buong cast sa impresyon nila kay Direk Topel, walang tensiyon sa set kaya masarap katrabaho.

Mapapanood na nationwide ang Bloody Crayons sa Hulyo 12 mula sa Star Cinema.

Producer nina Arci, Ronnie at Daniel, ‘di na matagpuan

Ni REGGEE BONOAN

FOLLOW-UP ito sa sinulat namin kahapon tungkol sa bulilyasong show nina Arci Muñoz, Ronnie Liang at Daniel Matsunaga sa Paris at Vienna noong Hunyo 24 at 25.

ARCI AT DANIEL copy

Kuwento ng aming very reliable source, gumamit ng mga pekeng ID ang show producer na si Jefferson Parica na nagsabing miyembro siya ng Sandigan Pinoy Association, pero hindi naman pala kaya ang mga lehitimong miyembro ang nagpalabas ng official statement sa nangyari.

“Nasira kasi ang pangalan nila kaya naglabas sila ng official statement,” sabi sa amin ng source na hindi naman masabi kung kakilala ng grupo si Jeff Parica.

Bukod dito, “Matagal nang expired ang visa ni Jeff kaya posibleng ipa-deport siya kapag nahanap na siya. Kasi as of now hindi siya makita at palipat-lipat pala ng tirahan. May anggulong human trafficking din, iniimbestigahan pa.”

Mukhang nakakita ng katapat ang naturang show producer na dahil sa nabulilyasong show ay maraming kababayang Pinoy ang naapektuhan. Pati lehitimong producers sa Europe ay baka hindi na raw pagkatiwalaan dahil sa nangyari.

“Nagtutulungan naman ang mga Pinoy dito sa Europe, wala lang onsehan. Kapwa mo Pinoy lolokohin mo? Hindi tama ‘yun,” sabi pa ng source.

Susme, nagsimula lang sa hindi tamang accommodation at pagkain kina Arci, Ronnie at Daniel ay marami na ang nabunyag na ginagawang hindi maganda ng producer.

Anyway, bukas ang pahinang ito para kay Jeff Parica o sinuman sa kampo niya.

5 Food Movies to Stream on Netflix, HBO, and More in July

A guide to food-focused new arrivals and standbys on all the most popular streaming services

We are currently living in the Golden Age of Food Entertainment. Every month, the networks and major streaming services get a handful of new shows and movies about chefs, restaurants, and the ways people eat around the world. Take a look at what’s new to stream in July right here, and check out Eater’s full guide to food TV and movies at the bottom of this post:.

Chef (Amazon Prime, July 28)

Although it’s far from perfect, Jon Favreau’s 2014 comedy is arguably the most entertaining movie that Hollywood has produced about the culinary world over the last five years. The story focuses on Carl Casper (played by Favreau), a frustrated Los Angeles chef who throws his good job on the fire to drive a food truck across the country with his son (Emjay Anthony) and sous chef (John Leguizamo). Casper’s social media meltdown and the banter between the chef and his kitchen crew are the funniest parts of this film, and the food looks great. Note: This movie is also currently available on Netflix.

Soul Food (HBO Now, July 1)

This 1997 hit drama/comedy focuses on a sprawling Chicago family that gathers together around the dinner table for a series of Sunday feasts. The matriarch, Big Mama (played by Irma P. Hall), does most of the cooking with some help from her daughters Maxine (Vivica A. Fox), Teri (Vanessa Williams), and Bird (Nia Long). In his three-and-a-half star review, Roger Ebert noted: “[I]n the way it cuts between stories of romance and trouble, it’s like Waiting to Exhale, but more down to earth and believable — and funnier.”

Butter (Netflix, July 6)

The world of competitive butter carving is the backdrop for this 2012 politically-tinged comedy starring Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell, Yara Shahidi, and Kristen Schaal. Although this ensemble comedy left some critics scratching their heads, Butter certainly has its fans as well.

Delicatessen (Netflix, July 1)

A decade before making the wildly successful romantic-comedy Amelie, Jean-Pierre Jeunere directed this cult classic about a devilish butcher who sells cheap human meat in a post-apocalyptic world where lentils are traded as currency and an underground community of vegetarians is plotting a rebel uprising. Delicatessen is an acquired taste, to say the least.

Heartburn (HBO Now, July 1)

Naturally, the film adaptation of Nora Ephron’s autobiographical novel about her first marriage includes a lot of eating and drinking. Most memorable, perhaps, is the scene wherein the protagonist, a food critic played by Meryl Streep, and her lover, a newspaper reporter portrayed by Jack Nicholson, share a bowl of postcoital pasta in bed. The critics were split on this film from director Mike Nichols, but if you’re an Ephron fan and/or someone who digs peak 1980s nostalgia, it’s definitely worth a spin.

Also new for July: The first season of HGTV’s cooking show Spice Up lands on Netflix, and the horror film Carne the Taco Maker hits Amazon Prime. On the flipside: Chocolat, Ill Have What Phils Having, and The Search For General Tso are all leaving Netflix at the beginning of the moth.

I’m Dying Up Here (Showtime, Premieres June 4)

Showtime’s new dramedy chronicles the lives of a group of aspiring stand-up comedians and a big club owner in LA in the 1970s, right after the Tonight Show moved out west. The series mostly takes places in bars, nightclubs, and LA restaurants like Canter’s, where the comedians chew over the night they just went through. Produced by Jim Carrey, I’m Dying Up Here features performances from some very talented actors and comedians, including Melissa Leo, Alfred Molina, and Al Madrigal. You can stream the first episode for free right now.

Shrimpin’ Ain’t Easy (Showtime Anytime)

And speaking of Al Madrigal, the LA-based comedian’s newest specialShrimpin’ Ain’t Easy is now also available to stream on Showtime Anytime. Madrigal is one of the funniest people doing stand-up right now. This set includes more than a few jokes that will appeal to food obsessives, including a bit about a taco truck reveal, “seafood revenge,” and problematic Yelp reviews.

Jacques Pepin: The Art of Craft and James Beard: America’s First Foodie (PBS)

The two newest installments of PBS’s terrific American Masters documentary series focus on chefs who changed the food media landscape forever. The Jacques documentary chronicles the chef’s education in the great kitchens of France, his days working for Howard Johnson’s, and Pepin’s late-blooming career as a TV cooking show host. James Beard’s episode includes vintage footage of I Love to Eat — the show that he hosted on NBC in the late 40 — and a behind-the-scenes look at his relationship with kindred spirit Julia Child. Both films are now available to stream on PBS.org.

Chef & My Fridge (Netflix, June 28)

Netflix, the streaming service that keeps churning out great food TV shows left and right, is bringing subscribers a new South Korean cooking competition show. According to the official Netflix page, this program will feature Korea’s best chefs cooking “ingredients found inside the guest stars’ very own refrigerators.” No preview or photos are available yet; stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Chocolat (Netflix, available May 1)

True movie buffs may recall that, before he was starring in a never-ending series about 18th-century zombie pirates, Johnny Depp played the hunky love interest of a 1950s chocolatier. French actress Juliette Binoche stars as Vianne Rocher, whose sweet creations cause the residents of a small town to lose their inhibitions during Lent. If that sounds absurd, consider this excerpt from the film’s synopsis on Wikipedia: “Convinced now that chocolate will make people stray from their faith, [Mayor Comte de Reynaud] sneaks into Vianne’s house in order to ruin Vianne’s preparations for the Easter festival. After accidentally tasting a bit of chocolate that fell on his lips, he finally yields to temptation and devours much of the chocolate in the window display before collapsing into tears and eventually falling asleep.”

Decanted (Netflix, available May 1)

This documentary examines what is required to make it as a vintner in Napa Valley. Filmmaker Nicholas Kovacic II follows the team behind Italics Winegrowers, a new player in the game, and learns how much hard work and good fortune goes into a bottle. In addition to winemaking, Kovacic focuses on Napa wine culture and how it continued to flourish after Prohibition, at a time when other American alcohol industries became homogenized. “Napa Valley, California, is this place where history and legacy are really starting now to intertwine creating some lasting effects on global wine,” he says.

Master of NoneSeason 2 (Netflix, available May 12)

The first season of Aziz Ansari’s original series was a celebration of dining, and if the Season 2 trailer is any indication, new episodes will be just as gluttonous. In just over a minute of preview footage, Ansari and his friends are seen consuming espresso, assorted wines, rooftop shots, cheese, barbecue, and tweezer food. Be sure to have plenty of snacks at the ready before binging this series.

Ella Brennan: Commanding the Table (Netflix, Available May 1)

This new documentary from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks chronicles the sensational life of New Orleans restaurateur Ella Brennan, who, at 91, still presides over Commander’s Palace and a slew of other Crescent City establishments. Brennan helped launch the careers of Emeril Lagasse and Paul Prudhomme, and she influenced countless restaurateurs over her long career. Check out the trailer here.

Twin PeaksSeason 3 (Hulu/Showtime, available May 21)

A little more than 25 years after it went off the air, cult classic Twin Peaks is coming back. It’s not really a show about food, but viewers can expect to see creator David Lynch, who also plays FBI Deputy Director Gordon Cole, tucking into a doughnut or two. Kyle MacLachlan, reprising his role as Agent Dale Cooper, surely will enjoy some damn good coffee.

Leaving Netflix May 15: Parts Unknown Seasons 1-5

Try not to freak out, Bourdain fans. Yes, the bulk of Parts Unknown will vanish from your Netflix queues in the middle of the month. But, Season 6 is still available, and the brand-new Season 9 premiered on April 30. Deep breaths.

Documentary Now! Season 2 (Netflix, available April 10)

Saturday Night Live alums Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, and Seth Meyers have a hit with their IFC series that pokes fun at the modern obsession with documentary films. The second episode of Season 2 is titled “Juan Likes Rice and Chicken,” and it tells the story of an 83-year-old chef named Juan and his award-winning restaurant. Anyone who has seen Jiro Dreams of Sushi or Chef’s Table will get the jokes.

The Great British Baking Show: Masterclass (Netflix, available April 22)

The Great British Baking Show is getting a complete overhaul, so for those who can’t bear to think of the series without its original cast, Masterclass will offer some relief. In this Baking Show spin-off, judges Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry demonstrate how to properly execute some of the toughest challenges from the series. All three seasons will be available, giving fans 15 more episodes with their favorite baking Brits.

Bill Nye Saves the World (Netflix, available April 21)

Everyone’s favorite TV scientist has a new show coming to Netflix on April 21. In Bill Nye Saves the World, Nye will be joined by a variety of celebrities to analyze topics including sex, global warming, and alternative medicine. Alton Brown, everyone’s favorite TV food scientist, will star in one episode. Details are scarce, but considering Nye and Brown’s track records, it’s safe to assume there will be lots of quirky fun.

Samurai Gourmet (Netflix, available March 17)

Fans of Japanese manga will want to tune into Samurai Gourmet. Adapted from actor Masayumi Kasuki’s essay and comic of the same name, this 12-episode series follows a newly retired Kasuki as he “discovers the joys of daytime drinking and the realization that he is now free to eat and drink what he wants, when he wants.” Who can’t relate to that? This gluttonous awakening allows Kasuki to delve into the world of fantasy and reimagine himself as a samurai warrior in the time of Japan’s civil wars. [Watch the trailer]

Food Chains (Hulu, available March 5)

This documentary boasts actor Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser, whose previous work includes Food Inc. and Fast Food Nation,as producers. Farmworkers serve as the backbone of America’s food industry. Many deal with awful working conditions, wherein they face physical abuse, sexual harassment, and menial wages. The creators of Food Chains hope their exposé will raise enough awareness to improve the lives of these workers. [Watch the trailer]

Sustainable (Netflix, Now available)

Winner of the 2016 Accolade Global Humanitarian Award for Outstanding Achievement, Sustainable investigates the multitude of environmental and agricultural issues that threaten America’s food supply. At the center of the documentary is seventh-generation farmer Marty Travis, who is fighting the corporate farming industry by leading a sustainable food movement in Chicago. [Watch the trailer]

The Mind of a Chef, Seasons 1-4 (Netflix, Now available)

After ditching the streaming service in 2015, The Mind of a Chef is back on Netflix. Seasons 1 through 4 feature superstars David Chang, Sean Brock, Ed Lee, and Gabrielle Hamilton, respectively. Each episode is narrated by globe-trotting gourmand Anthony Bourdain’s silky-smooth voice. [Watch the Season 4 trailer]

Midnight Diner: Tokyo Stories (Netflix, Now available)

Late-night people watching at a greasy spoon is a pastime around the world. This scripted series spans 10 episodes and gives viewers a glimpse into the existence of a Tokyo diner open only after midnight (Kaoru Kobayashi plays the nameless owner, who characters simply refer to as “Master”). Each installment focuses on a different sort of Japanese comfort food, such as tanmen noodles, fried rice omelets, and pickled plums, and details how specific dishes emotionally resonate with the diner’s cast of regulars. Although it’s not new to Netflix as of this month, this recent arrival is starting to generate a cult following here in the states, because it’s great. [Watch the trailer]

Arjo, gaganap bilang Rocky Gathercole sa ‘MMK’

Ni REGGEE BONOAN

ANG tigasing si Joaquin Tuazon (Arjo Atayde) ng FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano ay biglang lumambot bilang si Rocky Gathercole, ang tanyag na Pinoy designer ng mga sikat na Hollywood stars tulad nina Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, at maraming iba pa.

Ang kuwento sa likod ng mga disenyo ni Rocky ay isang batang nangarap ng buong pamilya. Isang linggo simula nang ipanganak ay iniwan na siya ng ina at lumaki sa lasenggero at babaerong ama.

ARJO BILANG ROCKY copy

Nang lumaki at matanto ni Rocky ang kanyang tunay na kasarian, nagdesisyon siyang iwan ang ama para hanapin ang ina.

Pero hindi naganap ang inakala niyang masayang pagkikita dahil mas lumalim pa tuloy ang sugat sa kanyang pagkatao.

Itinaboy siya ng ina na ayaw magulo ang bagong pamilya. Namuhay na mag-isa at pagala-gala sa mga kalsada ng Maynila si Rocky.
 
Mapapanood mamayang gabi sa ABS-CBN kung paano niya nakayanang mabuhay na mag-isa at kung ano ang naging tulay para maging sikat siyang designer.

Ito ang ikalawang pagganap ni Arjo bilang bading sa Maalaala Mo Kaya.

Transgender na may karelasyong lalaki na ginawa siyang tagapag-alaga ng mga anak nito sa ibang babae ang unang gay role ni Arjo sa show.

Confident ang aktor sa kanyang seksuwalidad kaya walang problema sa kanya kung gumanap man siya bilang gay sa drama series o pelikula.

“I just enjoyed na lang portraying the role of a gay for two days,” natatandaan naming sabi niya noong unang pagganap niya as gay sa MMK.

Mas lalo siguro siyang nag-enjoy sa pagganap niya sa katauhan ni Rocky Gathercole dahil tungkol ito sa fashion na din niya.

Tinext sana namin si Arjo kahapon habang tinitipa namin ang balitang ito para alamin sana kung saan siya mas nahirapan sa dalawang MMK gay roles niya, pero bagsak daw sa kama dahil galing ng taping sabi ng nanay niyang si Sylvia Sanchez.

Samantala, marami ang fans na humihiling sa ABS-CBN na sana ay mabigyan ng soap drama sina Arjo, Ibyang at Ria Atayde na magkakasama.

Maraming offers sa mag-iina, pero wala pa silang kongkretong choice. Tiyak na bubulagain na lang nila tayo.

Piolo, proud producer nina Alessandra at Empoy

Ni ADOR SALUTA

BILANG producer, ipinagmamalaki ni Piolo Pascual ang pelikulang Kita Kita na pinagbibidahan ng kakaibang love team nina Alessandra de Rossi at Empoy Marquez under his Spring Films Production.

Gagampanan ng tinatawag ngayong AlEmpoy ang romantic millennial film about OFWs. Ang Kita Kita ay kinunan in full sa Hokkaido, Japan under the direction of Sigrid Andres Bernardo.

Piolo, Direk Joyce, Direk Sidrid, Alessandra at Empoy copy

Bakit tumaya si Piolo sa tambalang AlEmpoy?

“Ako kasi risky akong tao, eh. Kapag naniwala ako sa isang proyekto, kasama pati batok,” aniya nang humarap sa press conference ng Kita Kita.

Hindi niya isinaalang-alang ang pagiging box office ng kanyang pelikula?

“So regardless of the outcome. Of course, you want it to succeed, basta naniwala ka sa isang konsepto paninindigan ko ‘yun to the end, especially with people working with you who believe in the project.”

Bilang artist, naniniwala si Papa P na dapat ay sumusugal siya sa proyekto paminsan-minsan. Kaya natural lang sa kanyang sumugal sa pelikulang tulad ng Kita Kita.

“‘Yun nga sa pelikulang ito, kasama na sa responsibilidad natin bilang miyembro ng entertainment industry na gumawa ng mga pelikula na p’wede nating ipagmalaki hindi lang dito kundi maging sa ibang bansa,” sey ni Piolo.

Diretsahan ding sinabi ng aktor na maaaring ito na ang pelikulang maaari niyang tawaging legacy sa industriya.

“And siguro, sabi nga ni Direk Joyce (Bernal), ito na ang p’wede naming contribution sa pelikulang Pilipino, na makagawa ng mga pelikula na hindi siya nakakahon o hindi siya limitado. So we’re just really happy that we’re able to come up with concepts like this na p’wede nating paglaruan.”

Ano ang lamang ng Kita Kita sa ibang romance films na pinagbibidahan ng mas popular na tandem tulad ng
KathNiel,LizQuen o JaDine?

“Bago ‘yung love team, bago ‘yung story. Ang sarap rin niyang panoorin. Wala siyang pretentions, wala siyang pinapatunayan,” sagot ni Piolo.

Anuman ang kahihinatnan ng pelikulang ito, paulit-ulit na sinabi ni Papa P na proud siyang bahagi siya ng proyekto.

“Happy ako na nakagawa ako ng isang pelikula na disente and p’wede nating ipagmalaki,” sey ng actor-producer..

Ang Kita Kita na sumali sa Grand Prix and Most Promising Talents category ng Osaka Asian Film Festival nitong nakaraang Marso ay ipapalabas na sa mga sinehan sa Hulyo 19.

Watch: The Korean Clay-Pot Duck You Can Only Find in LA

© Provided by Eater

“K-Town” heads to Dha Rea Oak for one of the most unique duck dishes in America

In this new season of K-Town, Eater LA editor and host Matthew Kang returns to his native Los Angeles, where the largest and most influential Koreatown resides in the heart of the city. The first place he visits is called Dha Rae Oak, and it’s remarkable because it features one of the most unique duck preparations in all of America.

To make its signature dish, Dha Rae Oak roasts a whole duck that’s stuffed with everything from glutinous rice and mung beans to nuts and seeds: Capping it off before the duck goes into a clay pot — and then the oven — is a bevy of aromatic Korean medicinal herbs like ginseng, to give it a rustic flair.

After trying the most perfect platter of Korean duck (“everything you need for this meal is encapsulated inside this duck,” Kang says), he goes for the restaurant’s second specialty, an onslaught of thinly sliced smoked duck that’s ready for the tabletop grill. The gently smoked duck gets a quick sear before getting wrapped with a pickled daikon radish, crunchy cabbage, and some mustard, for a pastrami sandwich-like experience.
