  • Pauleen has a right to become a mom -- Dina Bonnevie

    Vic Sotto's name probably comes up a lot each time Dina Bonnevie makes a public appearance. With Vic's wife Pauleen pregnant, however, reporters can't help but ask her about her ex's new journey to fatherhood.

    According to Push, Dina admitted that Vic, who is 63 years old, seems relatively "too old na to have another child and to start all over again." She, however, justified that it's a non-issue. "You cannot take that away from Pauleen [who's now 20 weeks pregnant with Vic's baby]. She has also a right to become a mom and any wife would like to be a mother, di ba?" Dina told Push. "Lalo na kung mahal na mahal mo yung lalaking napangasawa mo, siyempre gusto mo makita yung naging prutas ng pagsasamahan niyo," she added. 

    Dina, who has two kids with Vic, Danica and Oyo both parents themselves, shared that Vic joked about going to his future daughter's PTA (parent-teacher conference) and being mistaken for her grandfather. "Ang sabi ko naman sa kanya, 'Given na 'yon. Alam mo 'yon pagpunta mo sa PTA, lolo ka," Dina quipped. Vic and Pauleen's relationship is an open book, so "I think they don't care about it," Dina said.

    Sunshine Dizon's ex claims to receive death threats 

    In an interview on DZRH's Showbiz Talk Ganern, Timothy Tan, Sunshine Dizon's estranged husband said he received a threatening text message. "Right after nung [brawl] incident na yun, the following day, may nagti-text na sa akin. Parang sinasabi na, 'Hindi ka na sisikatan ng araw... Alam namin kung nasaan ka. Hahanapin ka namin, hindi ka namin titigilan hanggang hindi ka namin napapatay,'" he said. He did not disclose whom he suspects it came from, but he stated he is already working with the police on the best course of action. 

    Timothy plans to file a complaint against Robert Sison, the husband of Clarisma Sison, whom he is said to have an extra-marital relationship, and director Roderick Lindayag next week. Timothy claims that the director told him during the brawl, "Ang dapat sa 'yo tinutumba at papatayin kita," which made him fear for his life. He said he doesn't know why the director would threaten him, or if he had worked with Sunshine before. (pep.ph)

    Life-sized cardboard cutouts of nursing moms help normalize breastfeeding

    Here's a bold way to help other people get used to seeing women's breasts in a non-sexual way. The Porcupine Health Unit in Ontario, Canada, recently launched the campaign, appropriately titled "Breastfeeding in Public." The campaign will place life-sized cardboard cutouts of moms breastfeeding their kids (not just babies) in restaurants, government buildings, and businesses. "These life-size cutouts make breastfeeding very real because they are photos of mothers who live here in the community," said Meagan Potvin, a public health nurse with the Growing Healthy Families Program and leader of the campaign. Even though Ontario has a law protecting nursing moms, they still face discrimination which may cause them to stop breastfeeding altogether. The Porcupine Health Unit hopes to take the cutouts on tour to other communities across the region as well. (babble.com)
