My Return to My Roots! The Filipino Channel Rocks! 


I visited The Filipino Channel last Friday and I had a blast! What's The Filipino Channel you may ask? Here's what Wikipedia says:

The Filipino Channel (TFC) is an international Filipino broadcasting service owned by the ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation. The network is currently available in North America, Australia, Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Europe. It has more than 2 million subscribers in these regions. The channel is targeted towards Overseas Filipino and their families in the Philippines. The network airs a 24-hour lineup of shows produced by ABS-CBN, and is also backed by several other international direct-to-home services, branded under the TFC Direct name.


Otherwise known as TFC, one of its more popular programs is Balitang America, their long-running nightly newscast featuring the fantastic Gel Santos-Relos. Yours truly is featured there every Friday (check your local listing).

So last Friday, I visited TFC and I had a blast! I was live talking about "17 Again" and let me tell ya, I was welcomed by the TFC family with open arms and hearts.

Here's me getting ready for my hit.



Here's the beautiful Gel Santos-Relos, Balitang America's main anchor.

Let me tell y'all, I've never been a big fan of Zac Efron, but with "17 Again," I'm now a believer! He carried that film from start to finish, and honestly? I was getting ready to hate the movie, but Zac saved it!

The film even inspired me to dig up my old yearbook photo, and wished I was 17 again :happy

Have fun, and think young and beautiful :happy

I had a blast talking to the cast of "17 Again." And I was genuinely pleased with the film (read my review of "17 Again" right here)!

First stop, Zac Efron (the younger Mike O'Donnell) and "Reno 911's" Thomas Lennon who played Mike's super-rich nerd friend, Ned!

We talked about:

*** Their characters
*** What attracted them to the project
*** Who's the swordfighter? (there's a fun lightsaber duel in the film)
*** Will they go back in time to correct a mistake, and much, much more!

Take a look at my interview with Efron and Lennon:



Next stop, the lovely Leslie Mann (Scarlet) and Matthew Perry (the older Mike O'Donnell).

We talked about:

*** Their characters
*** What they were doing when they read the script

Congratulations to CJ, Winner of Our Monstrous "Monsters vs. Aliens" Giveaway! 


Aw...isn't he sweet? 5-year old CJ from Gainesville, VA is our lucky winner of our huge, monstrous "Monsters vs. Aliens" prize giveaway!

His mom, Amy, entered his name, and CJ is our chosen one!

Here's what his mom said:

I would like to enter my son's name for the monsters vs. aliens contest. My 5 year old son has been counting down the days until it opened. He was one of the 1st to see it on Friday. On Saturday he was in the ER all night getting stitches and of course I promised him a prize when we were done. The store were closed but we went to the toy stores 1st thing on Sunday however the store was sold out of almost everything. He was so upset. We got him the monsters vs. aliens Wii game but he would love these toys and he would give them a great home by playing with them everyday.


So Mister CJ was admitted to the hospital because he fell and split his head open and needed several stitches above his eye, and it was his first visit to the ER so he was very scared :sad

But now, CJ is all smiles, and I'm glad that the "Monsters vs. Aliens" toys brightened his day! He deserves to be happy :happy

Thanks to all of you who participated! We received hundreds of entries. Needless to say, they were all entertaining read.

Until our next contest! Stay tuned...

And, y'all can still see "Monsters vs. Aliens" in theaters! I love this film!

"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" to Open Two Days Early! 


Rejoice Harry Potter fans!

"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" will open two days early on Wednesday July 15.

The film was originally schedule to open Friday, July 17, but to satisfy fans, like me, it's opening two days earlier. I can't wait for this film! I read the book, and I'm so excited!

For more Harry Potter goodies, go to the film's official website.

And here's more info about the film from our friends at Warner Bros. Pictures:

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! And then there's Hermione, simmering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again. Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Heyday Films production, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," starring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Jim Broadbent, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Timothy Spall, David Thewlis and Julie Walters. The film is directed by David Yates from a screenplay by Steve Kloves, based on the book by J.K. Rowling. David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, is producing the film, together with David Barron. Lionel Wigram is the executive producer.
