‘The Greatest Love’ Spoilers: Stella’s Suspicious Apology Will Just Bring Conflict To Alegre Family, And Worsen Gloria’s Health Condition

The Greatest Love

By: Danilo Flores II

“The Greatest Love” is at its peek after the show’s “Deep Impact” episode earlier in January. The viewers are gently pulled into watching the high-calibre performance of the cast especially by Gloria (Sylvia Sanchez who is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. “TGL” fans can’t wait for any new events about to unfold in the series.

Stella’s Apology To Gloria

Secondary antagonist of the Philippine TV series “The Greatest Love,” Stella Alegre-Policarpio (Tetchie Agbayani), is on her way in apologizing to the Alegre Family. This is after she knew that Gloria was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. she just took advantage in Gloria’s condition that could possibly worsen it.

She made the whole family believe in her apology. Even Amanda (Dimples Romana) and Paeng/Rafael (Arron Villaflor) undoubtedly accepted her plea for forgiveness. But the family don’t know her real agenda behind her pretentious actions in “The Greatest Love” series.

Conflict In The Alegre Family

The Alegre family of “The Greatest Love” series will face another trouble caused by the doubtful apology of their Aunt Stella. Amanda and Paeng forgive Stella, and tries to convince the whole family that Stella is now a changed person.

On the other side, Lizelle (Andi Eigenmann) and Andrei (Matt Evans) cannot accept it because of the fact that Stella is their enemy. They cannot forgive her easily because of her terrible views towards Gloria’s family. All that’s in their minds is Stella is not sincere in her apology.

The Greatest Love

As a normal plot of the “The Greatest Love” series, the siblings are very vulnerable to misunderstandings and would normally fight over certain issues faced by the family. Even Gloria herself is hesitant on the surprising actions that Stella did.

Amanda and Paeng were directly convinced by Stella and forgive her without any question. While on the other hand, the two siblings, Lizelle and Andrei, cannot really deny the fact that Stella has a bad attitude that accepting her apology is a hard thing for them to do.

Effect To Gloria’s Condition

With the current situation of Gloria, Stella should not have made an apology to the family.  Her apology will only bring misunderstanding and chaos to them, and would only worsen Gloria’s state of mind. Gloria will likely be more stressed and depressed especially when she sees her children quarreling as previously show by her character in “The Greatest Love” Series.

‘Die Beautiful’ Best Actor Paolo Ballesteros Surprises Audience In Every Celebrity Transformation

Die Beautiful

By: Danilo Flores II

By now, it’s pretty needless to talk about the awards “Die Beautiful” has gotten or how many international film fests this has been invited to. This is one of the Filipino movies that no longer needs domestic validation from Filipinos too. From the buzz it is making online, Director Jun Lana and Paolo Ballesteros definitely could not ask for more.

Youtube video by; Regal Entertainment, Inc.
[VIDEO]: Can you guess how many make-up transformation Paolo Ballesteros did in this movie?

Life & Death Of Tricia in “Die Beautiful”


Some of the viewers were expecting that “Die Beautiful” would reveal some jaw-dropping twist, a “whoah!” bomb that would surprise audiences while watching. I thought that this twist would be about how Tricia (Paolo Ballesteros) died.

But that didn’t happen. Yet, it wasn’t really a disappointment. It’s because the movie’s narrative was a beautiful irony to everyone’s expectation. Viewers were waiting for the story to elaborate on the specific details of his death because he wanted to “Die Beautiful.”

However, the story wasn’t really about her death but focused more on how Tricia lived his/her beautiful life. This is made even better with her total transformation to different famous Hollywood Celebrities, that made it somewhat different from other Filipino movies in the Metro Manila Film Festival.

Paolo Ballesteros’ Makeup Transformation

Award-winning actor Paolo Ballesteros have already made noise in social media about his versatility in imitating the looks of famous celebrity which he did all by himself. In “Die Beautiful” this talent was showcased.

Plenty of celebrities, both local and international have been shown in the film as the result of Tricia’s makeup transformation. We have Regine Velasquez, Melanie Marquez, Jacklyn Jose and Iza Calsado. For Hollywood, we can see Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Beyonce.

Social Impact On LGBT Community

“Die Beautiful’s” relatability, along with its social commentary on Philippines’ still-uncomfortable acceptance of the LGBT community, is its best asset. The living proof of that is Barbs, the character played by the newcomer Christian Bables.

This guy, I believe, equally deserves best supporting actor accolades from everywhere. Tricia and Barbs’ chemistry, carrying the language and behavior we have all grown to love in recent times, is definitely why “Die Beautiful” is one of this year’s easy favorites.

Saving Sally: A Movie That’s Worth 12 Years Of Waiting, Explore Marty’s The Comic World

Saving Sally

By: Danilo Flores II

“Saving Sally” which was finally finish after twelve long years is a perfect harmony of animation and live action. “Saving Sally” is the masterpiece that famous Gallerist Liongoren created by the pieces in between his other projects that tells the tale of a boy who is deeply in love with a girl.

[VIDEO]: SAVING SALLY (MMFF 2016) Official Trailer Rhian Ramos

Saving Sally 12 Years Production

The successful “Saving Sally” film made its first appearance on the social media site Facebook. Film creator Liongoren at that time was raising much needed funds to finish the movie’s pot-production. Viewers got their first view of what “Saving Sally” had in store through a short trailer, black and white, with unfinished special effects.

The gallerist’s appeal made some noise as live actors took interest. But after some time, “Saving Sally” plea disappeared. Fortunately, a few years later, that is today, the masterpiece was rescued by its creator’s blood and sweat as Liongoren gave everything up just to give Saving Sally its much deserved finish. The film was mostly in English but bits of Japanese anime’s “will somebody say something already” plot is evident.

Saving Sally Plot

From the very moment Sally (Rhian Ramos) rescued Marty (Enzo Marcos) from bullies in school, the boy was smitten and ever since fell deeply in love with her. Marty was an artist and viewers were made to see the world through his comic-books. Saving Sally tells the tale of Marty as he tries to save Sally from the monsters of the world, including herself. One notable character is Nick, Sally’s boyfriend who was totally childish but proved to be essential in making one strong point in the end.

Filipino Customs And Culture

The world through Marty’s comic books is astonishing! Brilliant colors filled all its corners with eccentric shapes and adorable cartoons. Plus, it is refreshing to see that the Filipino culture prevalent in Marty’s comics through the famous Filipino Jeepney and masked characters that go around the University of the Philippines. Even the sight of street foods vendors in the comic-word is exciting.

Saving Sally’s lack of dynamics in terms of moving shots as well as CGI backgrounds for most, if not all, of its scenes on top of character’s lack of mobility during scenes is undeniably a sign of the film’s age. But this was taken as an opportunity for creators to show off their passion, creativity and originality.

Evolution of Filipino Cinematics

Saving Sally is truly an evolution of the Filipino cinematics. Saving Sally takes viewers to a journey, a roller coaster ride through a light and bubbly plot with adequate references. The movie’s adorable leads and storyline is truly relatable as the story progress. Saving Sally will definitely become a timeless reference that will demonstrate how special outcomes are when visual arts and film-making meet.

Despite the 2016 MMFF FPJ Award Controversy, Oro Is Truly An Awakening Masterpiece


By: Danilo Flores II

In the middle of teaching elementary kids in her school room, Linda (Mercedes Cabral), amidst the scorching heat of the sun, traverses the steep hill while the background extends far just so she could grab the opportunity to talk to Elmer (Joem Bascon). He is one of the locals who is captured and detained by the group of armed men. This scene alone instantly brought Oro on the top spot among other MMF 2016 entries.

Youtube video by; Pelikula Mania
[VIDEO]: ORO (MMFF 2016) Official Trailer Irma Adlawan, Joem Bascon, Mercedes Cabral Crime Drama

Dog Slaughter Scene

True enough, the film Oro is under great controversy over the sensitive dog slaughter issue in one of the movie’s scenes. Upon initial criticisms and inquiry about the slaughter scene, production representatives’ claim that no dog was harmed since they use a dead goat with prosthetics; the concern is put to rest.

But the issue has risen from the dead and is currently making so much noise in social media after Oro movie representative recently admits to lying about the scene and that a poor dog was indeed killed. While this issue is sensitive and merits great discussion and attention, its focus should be directed first on judging the quality of the movie based on other aspects.

Gata 4 Massacre

The film Oro follows real-life events and tells the tale of “Gata 4 Massacre” where four miners lost their lives to an armed group in Barangay Gata in Caramoan, Camarines Sur in the year 2014. The story is fictionalized in some points in order to refrain from becoming a mere re-enactment of the massacre.

The film is truly a masterpiece. It retells the story of the “Gata 4” victims, the tale of the town and the legend of oppression in itself. Oro proves to be a socio-political film anchored on real life events that have turn-out to be an outstanding narrative suited for the big screen. Every scene is artistically choreographed to build up tension among viewers, that leads them to chaos and the lingering feeling of uneasiness up until the climax – where emotions explode before everyone watching.

Brilliant Casting Team

Oro’s casting team did a great job. The actors that gave life to the film’s characters were complimenting each other, making it easy to believe that they were indeed living their lives together in one community for a very long time.

The movie’s visuals are excellent. Lighting is properly utilized for both of Oro’s day and night scenes and played a great role in achieving the atmosphere of that in an island barangay setting.

Oro’s Screenplay is  Seamless

Oro’s screenplay is effortless, truly seamless.  Actors and actresses all portrayed their roles with superb acting and the unraveling of the story reveals a brilliant scene direction.

A little point for improvement perhaps would be the integration of the native dialect’s tone. This would be tough on the movie’s cast. Nonetheless, justice for the roles was truly served. Despite the issue that confronts Oro at the moment, there is no argument on the fact that it deserves the Best Ensemble Cast Award. One of the cast members, Irma Adlawan, is also the best actress winner for her role.

Tom Cruise’s Failed Marriages with Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes: Can Scientology be Good?

Tom Cruise

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Leah Remini’s series about the cult of Scientology shows just how far the religion’s leaders will go to destroy you. It features Mike Rinder, who is an Australian by birth, was raised in Scientology since age six. He spent 46 years practicing the faith. He served as International Spokesman for the organization for 20 years. He then left in 2007, and two years later began to speak out against the religion amidst rampant abuse.

Youtube video by; Elena Flores
[VIDEO]: If one marriage failed that is of Tom Cruise’s first union with Nicole Kidman due to irreconcilable differences in beliefs, then followed by his divorce with Katie Holmes, this time very openly with Holmes criticizing Scientology, there’s probably some truths in the comments that it’s a no good religion!

Does Tom Cruise has a Choice to Leave Scientology?

Despite the noise about Scientology, Tom Cruise remains quiet and all he can say is, it’s a beautiful religion!

Out to Destroy

Rinder used to be the head of the church’s division setup for the so-called fair game. He was doing that for ten years. The policy of fair game states that any enemies of the Church “may be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.” Therefore, he was heading a team that destroyed people who go against the teachings of the faith.

The Plight of Rinder that can happen to Tom Cruise?

Rinder was subjected to long-term and serious incidences of physical abuse at the hands of the leader of Scientology, David Miscavige. Rinder suffered beatings between 50 and 100 times. As part of his henchman duties, Rinder was tasked with preventing a BBC special on Scientology, which included coverage of Miscavige’s physical abuse of congregants. The reporter, John Sweeney, accused Rinder on camera of being subjected to this abuse. Rinder denied the reports. He was also unsuccessful in preventing the BBC special from being aired. In response to Rinder’s alleged “failure,” Miscavage decided to exile him to Western Australia. He was forced to stay away from his family. At that point, Rinder felt as though he had “nothing to lose” in leaving the Church. Since he would be disconnected from his family no matter what. Perhaps, this is what Tom Cruise is avoiding?

Remini’s Fight

As with Remini, the Church’s efforts at silencing her backfires in an explosive way. This has given Rinder to work harder in exposing Scientology’s abuses. The resistance hopes that these revelations may lead to the implosion of Scientology. The viewership and winning storytelling of the A&E special and Remini’s star power propel the defectors’ stories. Their fighting for the truth just paves the way towards the billion-dollar enterprise on TV.

Censorship Urged for ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 Violence

The Walking Dead

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
“TWD’s” season 7 which is the premiere episode Season 7, is too violent for children says The Parents Television Council. Tim Winter, the council’s president thinks that changing channels will not help especially when viewers are already hooked into the show. Subscribing with AMC automatically gives anyone access to brutal or violent shows. This should be the main concerns of families when purchasing a cable subscription.

Youtube video
[VIDEO]: The Parents Television Council was not pleased with the season 7 premiere of “The Walking Dead”, saying the episode was too violent for families to watch.

Glenn and Abraham’s Death

The gruesome death of Glenn (Steven Yeun) and another favorite character Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) did not prepare the audience how violent “TWD” could be in their graphic presentations. They were beaten by a baseball bat with sharp wires wrapped around it.


The spoiler interview with “The Walking Dead’s” Jeffrey Dean Morgan who is the psychopath killer Negan in “TWD” certainly did not help. Negan, the leader of “The Saviors”, a group composed of ravagers after the apocalypse already warned viewers that he will not only kill 1 but 2, said TIME.

Too much

Despite the shock, “TWD” followers still mourn the loss of the show’s heroes in such a mind-blowing manner. Robert Kirkman Scott M. Gimple, its showrunner may have gone too far in playing with the emotions of their followers but justify that they are necessary for the “TWD’s” success. It allegedly features the weakness of humans and the survival of the fittest from such horrific situations. Choosing to kill TWD’s good-hearted characters can also send viewers to the denial stage which escalates intrigue even more for this sensational “The Walking Dead” show..


Going back to the censor guy, Winter – he commented that the TV-MA rating of TWD is not appropriate for the audience it attracts. That should be pushed further to prevent the vulnerable ones from being exposed to the brutal acts “TWD” depicts.


TV-MA only stands for adult viewers and prohibited for below 17 years od age children. It does not say anything about how severe the producers could go about when it comes to violent scenes. That would be something to be protested upon concerning “TWD”, suggested Winters. “The Walking Dead’ definitely has to do some changes to satisfy censorship boards and it should be very soon.

Magsayo was supposed to face Ruben Garcia. But the latter was forced to withdraw from the bout due to an injury.

Garcia’s replacement

Pacquiao’s back in the ring but No MGM and HBO for Boxing Match

boxing match

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Gone were the days when any fight of Senator Manny Pacquiao will bump off any MGM bookings and HBO airings. Pacquiao’s boxing match in November will not be at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas anymore – but at Thomas & Mack Center at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He will be fighting against American boxer Jessie Vargas.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum explained that HBO is set to air the another conflicting boxing match between pound for pound fighters Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev. “Definitely it’s not going to be HBO. HBO had a contract and decided to pass because it was two weeks in front of their Ward-Kovalev fight,” Arum stressed further.

MGM could not be the venue this time also because it has been booked on the same date.

Lea Salonga on Jessy Mendiola’s gaining weight: Still Sexy

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Women who used to be skinny-sexy should be happy with their now bigger body – if they still have the confidence as when they were smaller.

Hear Lea Salonga’s, the Voice Kids coach and Broadway star insights on Jessy Mendiola as the actress continues to get criticized online after topping FHM’s 100 Sexiest 2016 list after gaining weight here:

On her Facebook page, Lea wrote: “For the record, I think Jessy Mendiola is one of the sexiest people I’ve ever cast my eyes on. It has less to do with her physique (which, by the way, is nothing to sneeze at) and more to do with how she carries herself. She could gain 20 pounds right now and my opinion of her wouldn’t change.”

Lea added: “Sexy has nothing to do with the outer shell and all to do with what’s in you. You could be a Victoria’s Secret model and have zero sex appeal, or be someone customarily plus-sized and get everyone in the room to set their gaze upon you. Or your opinion could differ from mine and not be any less valid. It’s in the eye of the beholder.”

Jessy on the other hand wrote in her Instagram account:

“My body may not be perfect but that will not stop me from being confident with myself. I’ve had my fair share of body shaming comments. So I know how it feels like to be called ‘FAT’ or ‘TUMABA’. Well, just to inform some of you ‘PERFECT’ people. We all come in different sizes and shapes but that shouldn’t stop us from being happy with our own bodies.

“There are times that you will gain weight and there are times that you will lose it. It’s normal. It just shows that you are a human being. So whether you are curvy, malaman, skinny, too skinny, on the plus size or even on the plus plus size, you have ALL the right to be confident with yourself because that is who and what YOU are. If you don’t love yourself enough, who else will?

“Think about it. So go ahead girl, wear that bikini and FLAUNT it. After all, it’s YOUR body. Not theirs. Sabi nga ni Demi Lovato ‘What’s wrong with being confident.'”

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Spared their Fortune – not for Wedding Bands

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are already popular celebrities in their own rights – but being practical is still in their system and that really matters for people who are about to start their married life. Lavish spending on weddings does not guarantee a successful marriage but having more than enough money in the bank can definitely ease up pressures while living a new life with the potential life partner. The good thing about it was, both were happy with their choices. The bride wanted to have a wedding band for daily wear and the groom is just too happy with his matching band. Who needs more luxury than that?

Eonline wrote: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher can’t put a price on love.

That said, neither actor was willing to spend a fortune on their wedding bands, either. When the Bad Moms actress appeared on TBS’ Conan Wednesday, Conan O’Brien praised her subtle bling. “It’s not showy,” the host told Mila. “It’s not, like, incredibly flashy, which I think is cool.”

Mila thanked him and, to her own surprise, decided to share some details. “I can’t believe that I’m telling anybody this story. So, my husband and I got married a little while ago. He got me a beautiful engagement ring. Like, stunning, stunning, stunning!” the 32-year-old actress gushed. “But for our wedding bands—for when we got married—I decided to just get them off of Etsy.”

Conan was impressed by her low-key approach. “Now, listen: I’ve been talking to you for years and I’ve always loved the fact that you’re frugal,” he told her. “You’re very up front about that.”

It added: Mila joked, “That’s a nice way of saying ‘cheap,’ but yes.”

When she was browsing Etsy, Mila explained, “I wanted the thinnest possible platinum band. I mean, you can’t see it, but it’s super, super thin.” While the camera zoomed in on her ring, she recalled being appalled at the price of Tiffany and Co. wedding bands. “I was like, ‘They’re how much? This is astronomical,” the actress said. “So, I went on Etsy and I was like, ‘$90?’ I was like, ‘Buy now!’ Ashton’s was $100, so technically his wedding band was a little bit more expensive.”

Purchasing a cheaper band was “not a big deal,” Mila added. “My engagement ring is beautiful, but I don’t ever wear it. This ring, I’m like, ‘It’s $90!’ It’s great. That person on Etsy had no clue whose ring they were making, but they were wonderful and very nice and polite and generous.”

During their conversation, Conan also asked Mila about her second pregnancy.

“I feel really good,” she said. “With the first one, there were these apps where you could check daily to see the size of your baby based on fruit. So, ‘Oh, today my baby’s the size of guava,’ or a banana, or avocado.’ And I did it, like, every day. I couldn’t even tell you how far along I am right now. I’m like, ‘I don’t know. A couple months?’ I genuinely don’t know how far along I am. I’m like, ‘Somewhere between this and that.’ With the first one, I would tell you the exact [date]. I mean, like, literally to the T what was happening, the formation of the eyes, the tail’s no longer there. Like, whatever it was. [Now] I have no clue what’s happening with my baby.”

Mila then shared an update on her 21-month-old daughter, Wyatt Kutcher.

“She’s really funny and incredibly bossy,” the actress said. “It’s weird because they’re just kind of developing their language skills and she somehow mastered, ‘Sit here now.’ So, it’ll be like, ‘Sit! Here! Now!’ I’ll be like, ‘Oh, my God! My child’s like a little baby Nazi.’ And then she grabs your hand. If you don’t want to do it, she doesn’t care. She just pulls you down to the floor.”

Needless to say, Mila told Conan, “She’s very strong-willed.”

Taylor Swift -Tom Hiddleston Romance definitely not for short-time Escapade


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The highly publicized Taylor Swift -Tom Hiddleston smooching last month might be too sleazy for some but the captured another romantic dinner date recently really showed that they are head over hills in love with each other. The good thing is, it has progressed to funny conversations and they surely enjoy each other’s company prompting for the writer to believe that this is not just a short-time love affair but can be serious as time progresses.

Eonline reported: Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have resumed their sweeping romance back in the states.

The Grammy winner and her British beau drove into downtown Santa Monica, Calif. Wednesday night for a romantic evening of dining at Hillstone. The couple arrived at the American eatery hand in hand, grinning widely as photographers captured their every step.

The duo looked equally in “style”—a red-lipped Taylor was dressed in a sleek and mod velvet black crop top and matching mini skirt with gold sandals while Tom opted for one of his signature button-down shirts tucked into a pair of belted jeans. According to an eyewitness, the two looked very happy and were smiling the entire time. “It seems like they are always sharing a laugh or inside joke,” the eyewitness added. “They were giggly and sweet.”

It added: Upon arrival, they were spotted walking into the restaurant’s private entrance up to the VIP second floor. After nearly two hours, they left out of the same side doors while still clutching each other’s hands.

While Tom initially forgot to open his girlfriend’s door for her, he remembered and, ever the gentleman, returned to her side just in time to close it behind her. The songstress sat in the passenger seat while the Night Manager actor got behind the steering wheel. Before driving away, Tom took out his glasses to see and Taylor pulled down his visor for him, inciting a chuckle between the two. Their security rode in a separate car behind them as they headed right back to Taylor’s house.

Since returning from their two-week Australian getaway, the couple has kept a low profile, hitting the gym separately on Friday before reuniting for a stroll in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, it’s officially been more than a month since photos first surfaced of the two smooching on the Rhode Island rocks. In that time, the new couple soon jetted away, embarking on a European vacation to England and Italy. After a brief pit stop in Rhode Island for Fourth of July, the couple then headed to the land down under where Hiddleston was scheduled to resume his role as Loki in the upcoming sequel, Thor: Ragnarok. In all of that quality time, Tom and Taylor have quickly realized what they mean to each other.

“Taylor and Tom are in love with each other. He told her she is the kind of woman he wants to spend his life with,” an insider revealed to E! News. “They have gotten very close. She is enjoying the time off from working. She has been writing during her travels, and Tom has been an inspiration in her music.”

The Crimson Peak actor has also inspired other thoughts about Swift’s personal future. “This is the kind of a man she would want to marry,” another source added. “She has said he would make a great dad. They have talked about what they want in the future and kids are something that they would both like down the line.”

JoJo Fletcher Made other Bachelorette Proud


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Jojo Fletcher is now becoming a symbol of desirable bachelorette whom women would love to have her in their circle of friends – and most guys would be so proud to date. The game that this blogger describes revolves around Jojo’s criteria of choosing the right guy for her. She is more keen on efforts than characteristics. She is also not afraid to break rules just to give chances to contestants who deserve a second try. She has this confidence of a model bachelorette who takes her time in the selection process and never desperate of having that special someone. She inspires single women not to compromise their principles because those made them who they are – and following the guidelines based on what’s important to them could eventually lead them into choosing Mr. Right or single hood for that matter.

Sure, I knew the drama surrounding the franchise’s biggest moments—who can forget Jason Mesnick breaking Melissa Rycroft’s heart for runner-up Molly Malaney or Courtney Robertson going skinny dipping with Ben Flajnik—but I just couldn’t agree to spend at least two hours a week on the reality show.

But as more and more friends of all ages began every Tuesday morning talking about that tearful exit or that ridiculous first impression, I decided it was time to open my mind (and heart) to the franchise. Guys, I was open to becoming a member of Bachelor Nation.

To my surprise, I quickly found out that JoJo Fletcher was the perfect woman to help me embrace ABC’s long running and oh-so-addictive franchise.

The Blog continued: From the very first episode this season, JoJo embraced all 26 contestants with open arms and little to no judgment. Nick B and your Santa Clause costume? Come on into the house. Luke riding in on a unicorn? Sure, he could become JoJo’s husband.

When it came to competitions, JoJo didn’t always pick the jock. Instead, she looked at the challenge as a whole. As the small but mighty Wells tried to complete the fire safety test without fainting, it was JoJo that decided to give him a rose for his perseverance instead of focusing on the dude with 12-pack abs.

As the season’s villain Chad and U.S. Marine Alex bickered more than two Real Housewives on a cast trip, it was JoJo who had the genius idea to bring them together for a two-on-one date where she got down to the problem once and for all.

And while producers would have likely loved to keep Chad around for just a couple more weeks, JoJo delivered a big fat “bye Felicia,” but in her classy way, of course.

Thoughtful moves aside, JoJo also wasn’t afraid to break the rules. In week six of her search for love, she asked Chris if she could grab an extra rose and allow Alex and James T to stay one more week.

And before you think I’m the only one who has positive things to say about the 25-year-old, you are so wrong. During hometown dates, Chase’s mom immediately called her “darling and smart,” while Robby’s mom approved of her “love for people and family.”

Even her former competitors from The Bachelor have nothing but nice things to say. When Becca Tilley, who competed alongside the brunette beauty for Ben Higgins’ heart just one year ago, found out her friend was picked as the Bachelorette, she wasn’t the least bit surprised.

“I think the best part about JoJo is that she appeals to everyone,” Becca explained to E! News. “She’s the girl that every guy wants to date and the girl everyone wants to be best friends with. On top of that, she is sweet and kind and extremely genuine. It translates on TV.”

The lifestyle blogger added, “I just want her to be happy…When people ask who I am rooting for, I always say I am rooting for JoJo.” While I was the first to roll my eyes when people talked about the franchise, I’m now with Becca and watching eagerly to see JoJo’s happily ever after. I’ve also had the Bachelor in Paradise premiere date on my calendar for months and I already have my favorites (Go Amanda and Jubilee). Plus, I’m following past contestants like Kaitlyn and Ben on social media and I’m crossing my fingers that they televise their respective weddings sooner rather than later.

There will always be skeptics, haters and those who think it’s exactly like Lifetime’s Unreal—yes, that show is good too. But perhaps Becca said it best when discussing the power of the show.

“As a friend and someone who has done the show, I watch from a different angle,” she explained. “I know that even with the silliness and drama of the show, the feelings and emotions are real.”

Jordan and Robby: Do not let JoJo, Becca, myself or millions of fans down. After all, I’m still a relatively new member of Bachelor Nation and I’m not sure I’m ready for the most dramatic finale ever!

Panorama in conflict with Governor’s Ball 2016: did not sell out but good turnout


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
No matter how good the line up of artists was during the Panorama 2016 in New York City, it still did not sell out due to the conflict of the Governor’s Ball. Organizers may be thinking that they have different target groups but still the Governor’s Ball was another important event – that families can think twice on planning their events. Read the story here:

CBS News reported: This weekend, music lovers from as far away as Los Angeles and South Africa gathered in New York City for AEG’s first ever three-day Panorama Music Festival. The festival on Randall’s Island came during the middle of the most sweltering heat wave of the summer, but that didn’t stop fans from showing up and going from stage to stage — the Parlor, the Pavilion and the Panorama main stage — to catch acts from a range of different music genres.

The same organizers who produce the annual Coachella festival in Palm Springs, California, first announced plans for Panorama last year, promising that the new festival would be “three days of music, art, technology and local food offerings.” It was staged in the same location as the Governors Ball, which was held earlier this summer and whose main act, Kanye West, ended up being rained out.

Panorama showcased over 60 acts, including DJ Khaled, Major Lazer, Anderson Paak, SZA, and many others. Arcade Fire, Kendrick Lamar and LCD Soundsystem headlined the show on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. LCD Soundsystem recently signed a three-festival deal with AEG/Goldenvoice.

On Saturday, Kendrick Lamar electrified the crowd as he opened the set with one of his most recent singles, “Levitate,” and launched into performing multiple songs off of “To Pimp a Butterfly” and “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City.” Earlier that day, Anderson Paak lit up the stage with an exuberant performance of songs from his recent album, “Malibu.”

On Sunday, Sia performed a powerful set that included her hit song “Chandelier” and a slowed-down version of her collaboration with David Guetta, “Titanium.”

It added: AEG/Goldenvoice also heavily incorporated a tech feel to the event with venues scattered throughout Randall’s Island Park: The Lab, The Verge and the Despacio were cool places where concert goers could go to escape the heat and experience a fusion of digital art, murals and interactive activities. The Infinite Wall, which was also featured on the festival grounds, was created by Gabriel Pulecio, a digital light artist based in Brooklyn. The enclosure was full of mirrors that responded to the movement of festival-goers inside with different lights and sounds.

Earlier this year there was controversy about both the Governor’s Ball and Panorama being held in the same place, and even a petition to stop the festival from happening. However, the show still went on as planned, and even though it didn’t sell out, festival organizers have stated that they were happy with the turnout.
