  • 1. Chynna Ortaleza opens up about being a new mom

    It was On Yan Ang Morning! when Chynna announced that she had already given birth to Stellar. She talked about her experiences as a new mom, and how she saw herself as hands-on and slightly overprotective of her baby girl. "Kasi kakapanganak ko pa lang. Nandoon pa ako sa stage na lahat ay dini-discover ko," she said. "Iba rin. Sobrang saludo ako sa moms. Iba talaga siya. Ito ang pinaka-fulfilling, pinakamasayang ginawa ko sa buong buhay ko." The new mom said Stellar's name was a song by Incubus, which is her and husband Kean Cipriano's favorite band. See more of her talk above. (gmanetwork.com)


    2. Scarlet Snow shows off her dance moves

    At a little over a year old, this little adorable cutie is already showing off her talents in more ways than one. In a video posted by her dad Hayden Kho on Instagram, Scarlet Snow is seen dancing to “a weird supermarket song” after waking up in a good mood. "A cute spectacle like this early in the morning will surely start you off with a joyful spirit," Hayden wrote as caption. In another Instagram video post, Dr. Vicki Belo also wrote that Scarlet Snow "brings back the child-like wonder with the happiness she gets from the simplest things." (abs-cbn.com


    3. Watch: The Achy Breaky Hearts trailer

    Star Cinema has released the very first trailer for the upcoming movie The Achy Breaky Hearts, top billed by stars Jodi Sta. Mari, Ian Veneracion, and Richard Yap. The teaser gives us a glimpse of Jodi's character Chinggay, a 30-something woman who is plagued by the pressure of society to get married. She then crosses path with her Frank, played by Richard Yap, and heartthrob Ryan, played by Ian Veneracion. Director Antoinette Jadaone says she's Team Chinggay all the way, so we'll have to see if she ends with up with either of the two male leads or none at all. The Achy Breaky Hearts premieres in cinemas on June 29. (abs-cbn.com)

    4. Smoking ban all over the country sought
    Anti-smoking group New Vois Association of the Philippines (NVAP) urged president-elect Rodrigo Duterte to ban smoking in public places across the country as soon as he assumes office. NVAP president Emer Rojas said that Republic Act No. 9211, or the Tobacco Control Act of 2003, has not been fully implemented for over a decade now and is hopeful that the Davao mayor would be able to replicate what he did in his hometown to the rest of the country. Rojas also added that the national smoking ban would save millions of lives, especially the youth, from the ill effects of secondhand smoke and help people save on treatment expenses such as medicines and hospitalization.
