Typhoon Glenda exits Philippines Island

Typhoon Glenda (international name Rammasun) shut down the Philippine capital on Wednesday and claimed at least 16 lives, according to reports by disaster officials and provincial authorities.

Most of the deaths were due to collapsed trees and concrete walls.

Undersecretary Alexander Pama of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said the agency has verified the deaths of five people in Bulacan, Northern Samar, and Quezon.

Pama said the first casualty was 25-year-old Lourdes Ongray Lim of Allen, Northern Samar. Lim was killed by a falling electric post.

Reynaldo Hernandez, a resident of Plaridel, Bulacan, died after a tree fell on his tent.

Three family members, identified as Nanette Artificio, Arlene Artificio, and Adrian Artificio, died after a concrete wall collapsed on them in Lucena City, Quezon.

Two people were also reported injured in Camarines, the NDRRMC said. They were identified as Antonio Habana and Jesus Vargas.

The official government death toll from the typhoon is expected to increase as more reports of fatalities come in from areas pummeled by the typhoon.

Aside from the five casualties verified by the NDRRMC, 11 more people were reported to have died during the onslaught of the typhoon.

In Bayawan, Negros Oriental, siblings Julie and Juvira Junalis, aged 10 and 6, drowned while crossing Tabuan River, the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) - Central Visayas said.

Angelica Guarillo, 60, died after a tree fell on her in Sitio Demonyo, Barangay San Juan in Cainta, Rizal on Wednesday morning.

In Binangonan, Rizal, 70-year-old Felizardo Ramos of Barangay Tayuman died after a tree also fell on his house.

Cavite Police director Joselito Esquivel Jr. also confirmed that 11-month-old Renz Benedict Lodrado died after a wall of his house in Barangay Biclatan, General Trias town collapsed on him.

He said a certain Lawrence Edward Pe also died after a tree fell on him while he was riding a motorcycle in Dasmarinas City.

Fifty-two year-old Mario Torres of Burgos, San Antonio, Zambales, also died when his house was hit by a falling tree.

Janet Pilapil, 31, suffered a heart attack after strong winds destroyed her house in Lubao, Pampanga.

In Padre Burgos, Quezon, a tree crushed a certain Rodel de Luna. Seven-year-old Jon Paulo Mendez's body was discovered under the rubble in Tiaong, Quezon.

In Barangay Palatiw, Pasig City, fire volunteer Jomark Diaz died after the roof and a concrete portion of the barangay hall collapsed on him, according to Pasig Police chief Sr. Supt. Mario Rariza.

The NDRRMC said the typhoon has affected an estimated 450,689 individuals in Regions 4A, 4B, 5, and 8.

About 373,177 individuals from the Bicol region fled their homes, officials said.

GLENDA NOW OVER WEST PH SEA

State weather bureau PAGASA said as of 2 p.m. Wednesday, the eye of the typhoon was already over the West Philippine Sea. Its exact location was 97 kilometers west of Olongapo.

After interacting with the land, Glenda's winds slightly decreased to 140 kilometers per hour near the center with gusts of up to 170 kph.

Glenda was moving northwest at 25 kilometers per hour and is forecast to exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Thursday morning.

Due to Glenda, Zambales, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bataan, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, Lubang Island, Pangasinan, and Metro Manila have been placed under public storm warning signal number 3. These areas should experience winds of 101 – 185 kilometers per hour in at least 18 hours.

Meanwhile, signal no. 2 (winds of 61-100 kph is expected in at least 24 hours) has been hoisted over the following areas:

La Union
Benguet
Nueva Vizcaya
Nueva Ecija
Southern Aurora
Northern Quezon including Polillo Island
Laguna
Batangas
Northern parts of Occidental and Oriental Mindoro

The following areas are under signal no. 3 (winds of 30 – 60 kph expected in at least 36 hours):

Ilocos Sur
Mt. Province
Ifugao
Quirino
Rest of Aurora
Camarines Norte
Marinduque
Rest of Occidental and Oriental Mindoro
Calamian Group of Islands

In a press conference, PAGASA weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the typhoon will no longer re-curve and go back to the Philippines after exiting the country's landmass.

Aurelio said the typhoon may pick up strength once it reaches the West Philippine Sea.

Another PAGASA forecaster, Rene Paciente, said the southern portion of Metro Manila was hit by the typhoon's eye.

Due to the sheer strength of the typhoon's winds, large trees were uprooted, and unstable structures were damaged in areas hit by the weather disturbance. Some uprooted trees and toppled posts rendered roads impassable

RAINS AND WINDS

Paciente said even though Glenda was already on its way towards the West Philippine Sea, rains and winds will still be felt in Metro Manila as it is still within the reach of the wall of the typhoon's eye. Paciente said the typhoon's eye has a diameter of 80 kilometers.

Areas which were hit by the typhoon eye's wall are expected to suffer the most, as this portion of the cyclone produces the strongest winds.

Rains may persist over the western side of Luzon until Thursday as the typhoon was enhancing the southwest monsoon, PAGASA forecaster Gener Quitlong told dzMM.

Residents in low-lying and mountainous areas under signal nos. 3, 2, and 1 are alerted against possible flash floods and landslides.

Residents in coastal areas under signal nos. 3 and 2 are also alerted against storm surges which may reach up to two meters.

Fishing boats and other small vessels are advised not to venture out into the seaboards of Visayas.

An estimated rainfall amount of 15 – 25 millimeters per hour (heavy - intense) is expected within the typhoon's 500-km diameter. – with reports from Henry Atuelan, Zhander Cayabyab, Eric Dastas, Jay Pelayo, June Perez, and Ricky Velasco, dzMM; Ron Gagalac, ABS-CBN News

Derek Ramsay Reveal the real score with Kris Aquino

Derek Ramsay Reveal the real score with Kris Aquino

Derek Ramsay Reveal the real score with Kris Aquino



Derek Ramsay again denied that he is dating Kris Aquino, but admitted that he is grateful to have her as a "best friend" whom he can turn to for advice.

Speaking with reporters on Thursday, the 37-year-old actor revealed that has has always been close with Aquino and that they make an effort to see each other despite their busy schedules.

"I have been very grateful that we are very, very close friends," he said about the television host.

"She knows a lot of things about my life that I'm comfortable telling her and she gives me advice on those aspects or whatever problems I have. Also, she asks me for advice," he continued.

"For someone like Kris Aquino to come to me and ask me for advice, it goes to show how she values our friendship," he added.

For the past two months, Aquino and Ramsay have been romantically linked to each other, with photos of the two going out for a movie fanning speculations.

Aquino also visited Ramsay while he was confined in a hospital due to pneumonia -- a gesture which the actor appreciates.

"I really appreciate it noong na-ospital ako one week, dumalaw siya sa hospital nung may sakit ako," he said.

To show his gratitude, Ramsay shared that he will be giving Aquino a Bichon Frise -- a hypoallergenic dog breed. He explained that Aquino has always wanted a dog as a pet, but would decide against getting one because of the allergies of her son, James "Bimby" Yap, Jr.

"It's not just a gift that you give to anybody. You have to know a person if the person is going to take care of the dog," he said.

Asked if he is dating anyone at the moment, Ramsay said that he is "happily single."

He admitted that his schedule, which includes promoting the romance-drama film "The Trophy Wife" with girlfriend Cristine Reyes, has been "killing" his personal life.

"I think it's just fair na tapusin ko muna tong mga ginagawa bago I set my mind to something like that," said Ramsay, who is also taping a reality TV show. "It's draining. I'm in and out of the hospital. I need to prioritize. Keep more time for myself to relax."

Actress KC Concepcion admitted that she is again dating Paulo Avelino amid speculations about the real score between the two.

In an interview with Push during her contract signing with ABS-CBN, the 29-year-old said that she is willing to try again with Avelino, but added that her tight schedule may play a part.

"Medyo nagmamakaawa ako na sana intindihin din ako kung may times na parang mag-aadjust pa ako sa schedule," she said.

"Sana naman mahanapan ng way na parang makapag-date pa din or makapag-spend ng time with you know, kung sinong makakapagpa-happy sa iyo," she added.

Last month, the two were spotted in Baguio together after Concepcion returned to the country from New York. Avelino earlier cited that the distance was one of the factors affecting their "relationship."

"Yun naman yung maganda when you’re able to spend time para makilala mo din yung tao 'di ba?" Concepcion asked, referring to the actor.

"Para makilala namin yung isa't isa. 'Yun ang pinaka-importante sa lahat, 'yung malaman mo kung paano ba talaga ang isang tao. Basta we're okay. 'Yun lang ang masasabi ko siguro. Okay kami," she said.

Concepcion also revealed that the Baguio trip was planned by Avelino, and said that she appreciates the "efforts" being made by the actor.

"Gusto kong maramdaman lang na normal ako ganun. Na hindi ako natatakot na maglakad sa streets of Manila. And napag-usapan lang namin one time na nagplano siya na parampahin ako sa Session Road," she said.

"Kinabahan ako actually kasi first time ko actually na wala talagang maraming kasama. Pero 'yun lang, we're okay. Sa time namin ngayon in our lives important yung work," she reiterated.

Concepcion is set to feature in the ongoing television series "Ikaw Lamang," while Avelino is currently cast as one of the major characters in ABS-CBN's newest primetime soap "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon."

"Passion niya 'yung work. Passion ko rin 'yung work. Kaya rin kami magkasundo. We're happy for each other and we're okay," she explained.

Earlier in the year, Avelino said on national television that his special relationship with Concepcion hasn't taken off but is definitely not yet over.

Avelino first admitted to dating Concepcion in November last year, weeks after he confirmed his separation from former girlfriend, actress LJ Reyes, with whom he has a son.

Sarah Geronimo admits that he really loves Mateo Guidicelli

Following her admission that she is in a romantic relationship with Matteo Guidicelli, Sarah Geronimo now reveals when she plans to walk down the aisle and tie the knot.

In an interview with Ogie Diaz for the premium exclusive segment of “The Buzz,” Diaz asked the singer-actress what is her ideal marrying age considering she is already turning 26 next month.

“Ang ideal age for me is before 30, or sana 29. Kahit matagalan nang konti basta wala naman po sa edad iyan. Kapag natagpuan mo na ang tamang panahon, tamang ikaw at tamang partner din, yun na,” she said.

Geronimo said she is grateful to have Guidicelli in her life because he makes an effort to make her feel special.

“Siyempre thankful naman tayo sa Diyos dahil everything that’s happening, kumbaga na-bless ako ng ganitong klaseng relationship, ganitong klaseng karelasyon kasi mabait na tao naman si Matteo at talagang matiyaga,” she said.

Just like Guidicelli, the singer-actress said she also calls him “mahal.”

“Oo. Oo naman, kasi mahal ko yun eh. Mahal ko yun talaga,” she beamingly said.

When told that Guidicelli seems to be the only suitor who won her parents’ hearts, Geronimo said, “Ano naman iyan eh, continuous iyan. Dapat hindi natatapos ang effort mo na ligawan [ang magulang]. Kasi ako okay na ako, yung magulang na talaga.”

Since Geronimo admitted her romantic ties with Guidicelli, several netizens, including celebrities, have expressed that they are extremely happy for the “The Voice” coach.

Asked how she feels about the overwhelming response of other people, Geronimo said, “Salamat po. Siguro [gusto rin nila ako maging masaya]. Maraming salamat sa suporta niyo at sa pag-intindi.”

Geronimo said her recent movie “Maybe This Time” and her relationship with Guidicelli are probably the reasons why she seems radiant lately.

“Feeling ko malaki yung growth sa akin nitong pelikulang ito. Ang daming naitulong sa akin and yung mga naging katrabaho ko and of course siyempre yung kung ano din yung meron kami [ni Matteo] kasi mag-26 na ako so medyo late na rin pero okay naman,” she said.

What's next for Maja Salvador after The Legal Wife

What's next for Maja Salvador after The Legal Wife

What's next for Maja Salvador after The Legal Wife 

After her "stressful" role as the mistress in the recently concluded "The Legal Wife," Maja Salvador is set to star in a new series -- but first, the young actress is hard at work on her upcoming concert in July.

Dubbed "MAJ: The Legal Performer," Salvador's one-night show will be held at the Music Museum in Greenhills on July 12. She will be joined by Rayver Cruz, Enchong Dee, Enrique Gil and Piolo Pascual.

"I will try my best. Kasi pangarap ko maging total performer talaga," the 25-year-old actress told reporters Monday on the sidelines of a press conference for a condominium she endorses.

Only a week since the taping for "The Legal Wife" wrapped up -- the series aired its finale episode last June 13 -- Salvador said she is now busy with preparations for the concert.

"Mag-sa-start na ako mag-voice lessons ulit. 'Yung mga i-pe-perform ko, siyempre kailangan kong pag-aralan din po iyon. Tapos mga dance rehearsals," she said.

Salvador, who recently launched her debut album "Believe," considers the upcoming show a way of giving back to those who have supported her since she entered showbiz in 2003.

"Sobrang in love ako mag-perform, kasi isang way ko po iyon na magpasalamat sa mga fans. Sobrang gustung-gusto ko 'yung feeling na na-e-entertain ko sila kapag nag-pe-perform ako, kasi ibang happiness 'yung naibibigay ko rin sa kanila," she explained.

Letting go of Nicole

The "Thelma" star was also happy to confirm that a new TV series is in the works, but declined to divulge details.

For now, Salvador said she feels relieved to be able to "let go" of Nicole, a character who has drawn both ire and praise throughout the four-month run of "The Legal Wife."

"Siyempre kailangan mo nang i-let go agad 'yung character na 'yon, kasi sobrang stress maging mistress," she quipped. "Sa taping, nung na-pack up na kami, isang linggo lang ako nag-stay sa aking condo para mag-relax, kasi nandoon na lahat din, e. Doon lang ako, nag-relax lang ako, inalis ko 'yung stress ko kay Nicole."

Salvador said that since "The Legal Wife" soared in popularity, which showed in record-breaking ratings and buzz online, new doors have opened for her.

Referring to her physical confrontation scenes with co-star Angel Locsin, with whom she has since become close friends, Salvador said: "It was worth it!"

Kc Conception on rumored that she's the real mother of Miel and Miguel Pangilinan

Kc Conception on rumored that she's the real mother of Miel and Miguel Pangilinan

Kc Conception on rumored that she's the real mother of Miel and Miguel Pangilinan

After taking a swipe at a popular rumor alleging that she is the real mother of her younger siblings Miel and Miguel, KC Concepcion finally opened up about the persistent talk and emphasized that she is not their mother.

Rumors that Concepcion is the real mother of Miel, who is turning 10 in September, has long been circulating. In 2012, veteran actress Sharon Cuneta had to publicly deny that Concepcion is the real mom of Miel and adopted son, Miguel.

In an interview Bianca Gonzalez as published on The Philippine Star Sunday, Concepcion said she initially did not mind the rumor about Miel being her daughter because she knows it is not true.

“First of all, sabi nila, kaya daw ako nag-Paris when I was 18 is because I was pregnant. And I didn’t know it was such a big rumor because it isn’t true! I didn’t mind it. It was funny eh, but when your family starts to ask about it, then it gets real. Parang, wait lang, showbiz can actually ruin relationships,” she said.

“So when they didn’t see any tell-tale signs, sabi nila, nagpa-abort daw kasi ako. Ano ba talaga? Nabuntis ba ako or nagpa-abort? They said anak ko daw si Miel (Pangilinan), because I wasn’t here when she was born. They said my mom paid so and so millions para daw tumahimik yung mga tao. Then when we adopted my brother Miguel, si Miguel naman daw 'yung tunay kong anak,” she added.


Concepcion quipped that it is unfortunate that “in showbiz, there can be smoke when there’s no fire.”

Aside from the pregnancy rumors, Concepcion also laughed off talk that the only reason she moved to Boston when she was 12 was because she was caught smoking in the bathroom.

Despite all these rumors, Concepcion said she only becomes more determined to let the people know more about herself.

“If you know me, how I am, how I think, kayo na mismo makakaalam if (rumors are) true or not. Instead of allowing other people to introduce me, I’ll do it myself,” she told Gonzalez.

This is also the reason she is active on various social media sites.

“I am so passionate about photos, sharing myself on Twitter and Instagram, and my blog before, it is my way of letting the fans in, so that they can know me,” she said.

What is the real score of Paulo Avelino on Kc Conception?

Paulo Avelino said his special relationship with KC Concepcion hasn’t taken off but it’s definitely not yet over.

This comes two weeks after he first admitted that they tried to bring their relationship to the next level but didn't work out.

During an interview on “The Buzz” on Sunday, host Boy Abunda asked Avelino to finally clarify the real score between him and Concepcion, following reports that they are no longer dating.

Avelino then said: “Ang masasabi ko siguro hindi pa talaga nagte-take off but it’s not over.”

In a previous interview with ABS-CBN News, Avelino said one of the factors that affected their “relationship” was the long distance. Concepcion recently took a short course on acting in New York City but is now back in the Philippines.

Concepcion confessed last April through a text message to "Kris TV" writer Darla Sauler that she loves Avelino.

"No comment except… Basta, mahal ko siya. Yun lang. :)" the 29-year-old actress was quoted as saying.

Avelino first admitted dating Concepcion in November last year, weeks after he confirmed his separation from former girlfriend, actress LJ Reyes, with whom he has a son.

Meanwhile, Avelino, who is currently promoting the series "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon," is hoping the soap will also receive the same amount of support given to "The Legal Wife."

"Nakaka-pressure lalo na napakataas ng ratings nila and naging very controversial. Sa ngayon, nakakakaba rin dahil bukas na kami eere. Ine-expect lang namin na sana yung sumuporta ng 'Legal Wife', ganun din ang gawin sa 'Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon,'" he said.

Directed by Jerome Pobocan and Trina Dayrit, "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon" will also star Dina Bonnevie, Maricar Reyes, Tonton Gutierrez, and Albert Martinez.

The soap joins ABS-CBN's primetime lineup on June 16.
