  • Sunshine Dizon isn't holding any grudges
    Sunshine and her estranged husband, Timothy Yap, are peacefully co-parenting, and they have been even seen together in family events at their children's schools. "In fairness naman kay Timo, maayos naman siya sa mga anak niya...Basta okay ang mga anak ko, okay na rin ako," the actress said. But Sunshine won't be in a forgiving mood when it comes to promises made to her kids. "Kapag meron siyang mga pangako na hindi natutupad at sumama ang loob ng anak ko, e, ibang usapan yun," the single mom of two said. 

    After more than a year since the actress' split from her husband, Sunshine told Pep.ph that she isn't holding any grudges. She was also quick to squash any possibility of reconciliation, adding she does not have time for a new love. She was focused on her work and her kids. (pep.ph)

    LOOK: Primo is taking after his fitness-enthusiast parents

    Iya Villania and Drew Arellano's baby boy had a taste of what "working out" means. In a photo posted by the new dad on Instagram, he described Primo's workout as the "best emotional transition we experienced today." The series of photos showed the little boy, lovingly called "little gymnast," holding onto the bar. At first, Primo looked scared, but then it looked like he realized that he's strong enough to hold up his weight. He enjoyed hanging out working out with his parents. Good job, Primo! 

    Senate submits own tax reform bill
    The Senate Committee on Ways and Means submitted Senate Bill No. 1592, or the Tax Reform for Acceleration And Inclusion Act (TRAIN). It aims to lower personal income tax rates, impose excise taxes on sugar-sweetened beverages and automobiles, and expand the value-added tax base. Under TRAIN, the first P150,000 annual taxable income will be exempted. If the taxpayer has four kids, the exemption will cover P250,0000. If it passes, the bill will also allow tax exemptions of up to P82,000 of the 13th-month pay and other bonuses. (gmanetwork.com)

    WATCH: New trailer for Jumanji reboot

    We already know that the Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Kevin Heart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillian are the avatars of the high school students who messed around with a Jumanji video game (because "who plays with board games anymore," according to the trailer). As the four characters discover their strengths and weaknesses, they realize they need to work together to navigate their way out of it and back to the real world. Oh, and just like in video games, they've each got three lives, which makes their quest a bit trickier. We also get a first look at Nick Jonas as an Indiana Jones-like guide. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle opens in theaters on December. (ew.com)
