  • WATCH: Beauty Gonzalez and Norman Crisologo are in tears at wedding 

    We recommend taking a deep breath before watching this wedding video of the Kapamilya actress and her now husband, art curator Norman Crisologo. The video by Jason Magbanua has captured the joy people had for the couple’s union, and there were no dry eyes when the couple exchanged vows. 

    "In a time of fast-paced love affairs and cynical romances, you have made me believe that true love still exists in this world," the bride said. “Thank you for giving me a family. I didn’t know at first that I could rise to the challenge of being a mom and a wife. But because I loved your children as if they were my own,” Beauty added, referring to Norman's kids aside from their 1-year-old daughter, Olivia. 

    For his vows, Norman promised Beauty that she would never be alone. “I promise to love you for the rest of my life, but more important, I promise to make you feel loved for the rest of your life. I love you so much,” he said. (abs-cbn.com)

    Jodi Sta. Maria and Iwa Moto earn praises for their relationship

    It’s not usual for an ex-wife and a current partner of her former husband to be civil. It's even rare to become friends. But Jodi and Iwa have proven again that it’s entirely possible to have a peaceful blended family. Jodi is a mom to 11-year-old Thirdy, her son with ex-husband Pampi Lacson. He is currently in a relationship with Iwa Moto and they have a daughter, 3-year-old Mimi.

    Jodi recently shared on Instagram a photo of her, Mimi, Iwa, and Thirdy. “Happy to be able to show our love and support to our dearest Muyski. Congratulations La Salle for winning the semis. Pray for us as we go against another team on Sunday for the finals. The boys were great. So proud of you, Muy,” she wrote. Iwa also posted the same photo on her Instagram with the caption, “Kuya Muy's cheering squad. Hihi. Congrats to his entire team for winning the game today. 

    The two women have buried the hatchet and made it a point for their kids to feel like a family, even if it's an unconventional one. Many netizens have commented that it’s nice to see that they’re getting along for their children, an inspiration for other blended families. (pep.ph)


    SC clarifies TRO applies to only two contraceptive products
    In a resolution released Friday, May 26, by the Supreme Court (SC), it clarified that the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued on August 2016 covered only two contraceptives. The resolution stated it “simply enjoined the respondents from registering, recertifying, procuring and administering only those contraceptive drugs and devices which were subjects of opposition, specifically Implanon and Implanon NXT, which are subdermal implants that release hormones to prevent pregnancy for up to three years." Alliance for the Family Foundation Philippines, Inc. petitioned for the TRO on claims that they could cause abortion. The SC said it could still not decide on the issue because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has yet to resolve the matter. The court gave the FDA 60 days to resolve whether the two contraceptives in question are indeed abortifacients or not. (inquirer.com)

    WATCH: Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer

     Your friendly neighborhood Spider-man (Tom Holland) gets his own Jarvis. It came with the upgraded suit Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) gave him, and it has the voice of a woman who she doesn't have a name yet. The new trailer tries to establish some more that Peter Parker is a still just kid, only he’s not so he easily got tired of little superhero acts. He has restricted access to all the other cool things his suit can do. When Peter stumbled upon an enemy that could be over his league, and he took it as a chance to prove himself either to Tony Stark or the world that even if he’s just a kid, he packs a big superhero punch. Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Michael Keaton as villain Vulture, and Zendaya as a girl named Michelle also star in the movie. Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Homecoming is set to open in cinemas on July 7. (nme.com)
