GMA Network’s “Kakambal ni Eliana” set to air on April 15!

Afternoon Prime will now be more exciting with GMA’s latest offering, Kakambal ni Eliana, beginning April 15.


This fresh, new series features rising stars Enzo Pineda, Kristoffer Martin, Lexi Fernandez and PMPC Star Awards “New Movie Actress of the Year”, Kim Rodriguez as Eliana.

Eliana was born with a snake attached to her spinal cord. She spends her life hidden away in a basement, until she manages to get away. In the process, she strives to find the truth about herself and her family.

In the outside world, she meets new friends. Both Gabo (Kristoffer Martin) and Julian (Enzo Pineda) will fall in love with her. Gabo is a street smart lad who accepts Eliana for who she is. Julian, on the other hand, is a photographer who will be bewildered by Eliana’s beauty, not knowing that she has a snake twin. Margarita (played by Lexi Fernandez) is Julian’s model girlfriend, who will be Eliana’s rival.

Kim plays Serpentina or Tina, born with a snake attached to her back and with which she shares a spinal cord. The snake comes out of her back and wraps itself around her hand every time Tina experiences extreme emotions like sadness or anger.

She will grow up alone, not knowing anything about the world or anything about her family because she’s kept at the basement. However, when she’s able to get out, she will discover new things and meet people who will drastically change her life.

Kim, Kristoffer and Enzo will be supported by Lexi Fernandez, Jean Garcia, Jomari Yllana and Antonio Aquitania, and directed by Dick Lindayag.

Bench Universe 2012 Day 1: Enzo Pineda!

The first night of the Bench Universe: The 2012 Bench Denim and Underwear Fashion Show held at MOA Arena Thursday night, September 14, 2012 was a roaring success!

Enzo Pineda

Body Talk with Enzo Pineda!

If he were to do a love scene, Enzo Pineda said that he’d love to have Scarlett Johansson as partner.

“I have a big crush on her,” confessed Enzo who finished runner-up to Steven Silva in the fifth edition of the GMA talent searchStarStruck. “I want it to be passionate,” added Enzo in jest, “something the moviegoers will long remember.”

In the meantime, while waiting for that dream love scene with Johansson to happen, the sexiest that Enzo would go is pose in trunks as model for Bench billboards which have started lighting up the metropolis two weeks ago.

“At 21 (Aug. 12, 1990),” Enzo conceded, “I’m ready for sexy roles but, of course, there has to be a limit. The role should be challenging enough to bring out the best in me as an actor. I believe that an actor can be sexy without baring skin.”

Enzo is the younger of the two sons (the other is Paolo, 10 years Enzo’s senior, who is a corporate executive) of Team Pacquiao bona fide member Eric Pineda and his wife Macy. He was born in Makati City and grew up in Quezon City; studied at La Salle Greenhills from kindergarten to high school and took up Entrepreneurial Management (unfinished, but plans to resume studies through distance education) at the University of Asia & the Pacific (UA&P).

He got his parents’ nod to join showbiz (via StarStruck) only after he convinced them that acting is his passion.

He has done a few shows on the Kapuso network. He’s a regular on the GMA Sunday show Party Pilipinas and the Saturday showbiz show Startalk (with the “Da Who” team), and is now seen in Together Forever which premiered last Sunday, June 17). He’s in the cast of the movie Basement by GMA Films.

A six-footer Leo (a Horse according to the Chinese zodiac), Enzo weighs 170 lbs.; and wears medium-sized shirt, 32-inch briefs and size-10 shoes.

Celebrities plans this Holy Week!

Holy Week is a time for everyone to have a long relaxing weekend and practice your faith in the Catholic Church.

Celebrities are also doing the same and below are some of their plans on how they are going to spend their Holy Week:


“Gusto kong mag-Boracay this Holy Week. Kaya lang, hindi ko alam kung matutuloy ako. Kasi busy sa IDoBiDoo at Angelito taping. Kaya hindi ko pa maisingit. Pero siyempre, tentative din naman, minsan napa-pack-up.

“Kaya lang, hindi rin ganoon kadali like you need to get tickets. Siyempre, papamahal na rin dahil palapit na ang Holy Week. Kasama ko dapat sina Gab Valenciano, ‘yung barkada.
“Alam ko tuloy sila. Ako na lang ang hindi sure. Sana… sana!”



“Gusto ko tala­gang mag-Baguio. Bonding lang kasama ang pa­milya. ‘Yun siguro… ayo­ko kasi ng mainit. Kaya mas gusto ko pa sa Baguio kesa sa maiinit na lugar.”


“Ang hirap lumabas ng Maynila kasi ang traffic. Parang lahat ng tao, kapag nag-beach ka, magkikita-kita rin ka­yong magkakaibigan sa beach.

“Normally kapag Holy Week, nasa bahay na lang din kami. Nagba-bonding kami sa bahay. Doon kami nagdarasal.

“Si Mommy, tuwing Holy Week, nagbi-Visita-Iglesia. Kami naman, nagrorosaryo. Kung minsan mas okay pa nga sa bahay. Nakakapag-spring cleaning ba. ‘Yun ang time mo to clean then, after Holy Week, garage sale na. Meron ka nang extra na pera.”


“Dito lang sa bahay. Staying with my family and staying here in Manila. Hindi ako aalis. I think, it’s time to pray. Pray harder. Pero pagdating sa relihiyon, ayokong sumagot kasi religion for me is a very sensitive topic just like war or politics.

“I believe in God at kung anuman ang belief ng isang tao, nasa sa kanya na ‘yun.”


“Sa Holy Week, nandoon ako sa pamilya ko. Magsasama-sama kami sa Cavite. Ito lang ang oras ko, eh.
“Kung magdedesis­yon ang family ko na mag-out-of-town, siguro. Pero ako, mas pipiliin ko na sa bahay lang kasama ang family ko.

“Kami naman usually, may Pabasa. Walang outing. Hindi kami lu­ma­labas, sa bahay lang ta­laga.”


“Plano namin ng fa­mily ko na magpunta ng Mindoro at doon mag-beach. May dad kasi, he has friends in Mindoro. ‘Yung resort, hindi siya commercial, private resort siya na nasa dulo ng Mindoro.
“Aside from one hour boat ride, meron pang one hour car ride before you reach the place. Pero, sobrang ganda raw talaga.”


“Kung may chance, gusto ko pa ring umakyat ng bundok ngayong Holy Week. Pero kaming pa­milya, usually kapag Holy Week kasi, nagre-reflect lang.

“Sama-sama lang kami. Pero ngayon, nagpaplano kami, sa Angono kasi, nagbubuhat ng Santo. ‘Yung dapat na nasa karosa, binubuhat ng tao.

“Basta siguro ako, kahit nasaan man ako ngayong Holy Week, importante sa akin ang makakapag-reflect ako.”


“This Holy Week, ito lang kasi ang bakasyon talaga. Ang naririnig kong plano, sa beach sa Batangas. Doon din ang family nina Carla (Abellana). Then, half of the Holy Week, I think, sa Subic naman.”


“Magsi-serve po ako sa Santo Domingo. Parang panata na rin po kasi namin. Sa Angelicum po kasi ako nag-aaral. Parang ‘yung school namin, ini-invite po ako, ganoon.

“Parang nakontak na rin po nila ang GMA Artists Center, nagkaayos na rin po sila. Bale kakanta po ako sa Siete Palabras.

“Hindi na rin po kami aalis or mag a-out-of-town po kasi, right after, balik shooting na rin po kami ng Just One Summer.”


“Plano ko sanang umakyat ng Baguio ulit for Holy Week. Kaya lang ang problema, for three days, nasa Korea ako.”


“Baguio. Ako lang siguro saka tita ko at saka ‘yung tita ko na doon nakatira. Parang gusto ko munang mapag-isa. Ganoon ako, eh.

“I’ll gonna pray. I’ll gonna read at saka, gusto kong mag-fasting. Ginagawa mo ‘yung fasting para ma-forgive ni God ang mga nagawa mong kasalanan.

“Sa Muslim, ginagawa namin sa Ramadan. Kaso, hindi ko nagawa kasi, ang hirap kapag may trabaho. So, siguro ngayon.”


“Dito lang kami sa condo. Wala kaming plan na mag-out-of-town ngayong Holy Week. Nakauwi na rin kami sa Biñan last weekend.

“Kasi, parang nauna na ‘yung mga out-of-town namin dahil nag-Palawan na kami. So, ngayong Holy Week, sa condo lang talaga. Bonding lang at saka pahinga.”


“Sa Tagaytay. Actually, noong weekend pa kami nasa Tagaytay. Kami nila Mama at ng ka­patid ko. Kasama rin si Alywn (Uytingco) at saka mga kapatid niya.

“Masaya kasi, bonding tapos minsan lang din na nagkakasama-sama talaga nang matagal.”


“Kapag Holy Week, kahit noon pa, nasa Manila lang kami. ‘Yung iba, nag-a-out-of-town, kami naman, nandito lang sa Maynila. Hindi kami umaalis.

“Ang lola ko kasi, talagang strictly, sinusunod namin siya na ginagawa namin ang Visita Iglesia, Easter, lahat ‘yun. So, wala akong me­mories na umalis kami or nagbakasyon kapag Holy Week.”


“I will be spending my Holy Week in Subic with my family and my fans.”
