People...are talking about: Alden Richards

People...are talking about

Alden Richards

The sales numbers for the music industry are looking particularly bad but not for showbiz’s golden boy.  Alden has reached another milestone in his music career as his 2015 first full-length studio titled Wish I May (GMA Records) is now a certified 8 times Platinum. The record, which was released at the height of Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye,” sold more than 120,000 units. We wouldn’t be surprised if the album reaches Diamond status before the year ends.

Inah de Belen

The daughter of Janice de Belen and John Estrada officially joined the roster of talents managed by GMA Artist Center. And for her television debut, she is given an important assignment, and mind you, in a starring role. Will she live up to the people’s expectation? Will she join the ranks of showbiz scions able to make a name for themselves? With the initial feedback she’s receiving for her role in Oh My Mama!, it’s very likely to happen.


The love team’s latest screen offering is in the running to become one of the biggest films of 2016. Barcelona earned more than P23 million on its first day and P130 million in just five days. In comparison, AlDub’s Imagine You and Me earned P21 million on its first day and P120 million on its first week when it was released in July. Truly, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla have proven once again that their tandem is still a force to reckon with.

Till I Met You

Is the James Reid and Nadine Lustre starrer romantic drama losing steam? It’s easy to tell. Based on the rating data of TNS Kantar and AGB Neilsen, the primetime TV series shows an obvious decline in viewership. On the other hand, its closest rival, Descendant of the Sun, which was almost banned in China early this year for having an audience of more than 400 million, was steady strong in its performance in the numbers game. It’s a tough competition indeed. But does the series still have time to level up against Alyas Robinhood?

Enzo Pineda

The actor went for a physical makeover and is now in perfectly fine form. Actually, he’s been flaunting his body literally dropping his trousers for a mass produced undergarment brand. While people understand why Enzo chose to go all out daring, talent watchers are not really that impressed. Perhaps, instead of spending hours in the gym, he might want to spend some time in acting workshops, too.

Jennylyn Mercado

The so-called “Ultimate Star” should’ve seen it coming. Her TV project with Pambansang Bae, the local adaptation of the Korean drama entitled My Love from the Star has been shelved to give way to Alden Richards’ TV series with Maine Mendoza. Obviously, the network knows how to give priority to its bigger stars.
