  • Sharon Cuneta talks cheating and battered heart 

    Sharon and her husband, Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, have been the subjects of infidelity rumors with the senator as the erring party. And this interview with Boy Abunda will probably just fan the rumor mill further. In the "Fast Talk" portion of Tonight With Boy Abunda, Boy asked the actress if cheaters deserve a second chance. The Megastar answered, "Depends on the cheater, but mostly yes."

    The mom of four was also asked to describe her marriage in one word. Her reply: "Existing." She then continued, "[The] last time I slept with him was last night." Sharon quickly clarified that "slept" meant they "didn't do anything" or didn't have sex. "And last time I checked, which is today, he was at home, so we’re still together."

    When she was asked how she would describe the state of her heart in one word, Sharon smiled, looking like she was trying hard to stop herself from laughing. "It's nobody's fault. It's not Kiko's fault," she responded. She then added, “My heart has been so battered over the years. Now all you have to do is to put it on real butter and fry it and leave it." Read the rest on pep.ph.


    House approves universal health care coverage
    With 222 votes, the House of Representatives approved on its third and final reading House Bill 5784, otherwise known as the "Universal Health Coverage Act." If the proposed measured gets the okay of the Senate, a bicameral committee, and the Philippine president, "every Filipino will be automatically included in the National Health Security Program, which entitles them to all its benefits, including in-patient, out-patient and emergency care services encompassing preventive, promotive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative care for medical, dental and mental health services." The bill will also simplify PhilHealth membership into contributory, or those who pay premium contributions, and non-contributory, which would determine the health care interventions for individual or groups.

    Pink opens up on breastfeeding in public

    The singer and mom of two has been openly and proudly sharing her breastfeeding journey on social media. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Pink spoke about how she teaches her daughter to love herself and discussed people's reactions about moms nursing their baby in public. "It’s such a weird thing that people have such strong opinions about breastfeeding. It’s a child, and it needs to eat, and you're breastfeeding," DeGeneres said, adding that some moms get their feelings hurt when they're on the receiving end. "Strong opinions about things that don’t affect their life at all. I’m feeding my kid. Would you rather [he] screams? Because he’s very capable of that, too," Pink added. (huffingtonpost.com)

    WATCH: A Bad Moms Christmas gets a new NSFW trailer

    The sequel to the surprise 2016 hit movie is set during the busiest time of the year. In this Bad Moms sequel, Amy (Mila Kunis) and friends Kiki (Kristine Bell) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn) had hoped to fuss over Christmas decors, presents, and get-together. But since their moms (played Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines) were staying with them for the holidays, it has put a damper on their plans. The trailer gives us a sneak peek of the moms who raised Amy and company: The uptight mom with impossibly high standards, the overbearing borderline creepy mom who can't leave her daughter alone, and well, the mom who can't tell Easter from Easter. And just a heads-up, the "red band" trailer (meant for a mature audience due to the nature of the clip) has its own Magic Mike moment. A Bad Moms Christmas opens in theaters on November. (ew.com)
