Inescapable Lessons from Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real

The plight of the Reals come to a conclusion tonight. Millet Real (Maricel Soriano), Shiela Real (Lovi Poe), and Anthony Real (Dingdog Dantes) will have their books closed tonight as the phenomenal Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real calls it an end.

While some are still stuck in the memories of The Legal Wife with Angel Locsin and Jericho Rosales, most people have moved forward and chose to level up their kabitserye viewing experience. This is for one what ADMR has proven, that the viewing experience can still go up a notch.

As GMA Network concludes the show tonight, let us take you back to three inescapable lessons from the show directed by Andoy Ranay.

    1. Kids are the real deal.
        In any marital issue whether it's adultery or simply marital fight, kids are the most affected.
        In their case, the kids of both Millet and Shiela were the ones who would experience the real impact of the situation. They're innocent. They didn't plan to be part of such a family. But they're affected.

     2. Kabitserye doesn't have to be about scandalous scenes.
         Although at some point ADMR showcased big confrontations between the two Mrs. Reals, Ranay and his team only did so when it was necessary.
         The soap, instead of coming up with scandalous scenes to be talked about, made provocative scenes that would showcase internal conflicts. They focused on real emotions rather than the common way of presenting such a theme.

     3. Bigamy is a punishable by law.
          Needless to say, anyone who commits such an act can be imprisoned for five long years.

To the team behind such a masterpiece, thank you for educating the viewers. Indeed, this was one for the books and not just on trending land.

Jessica Soho on 24 Oras, for good?

It has been days that Jessica Soho, one of the pillars of GMA News & Public Affairs, took the newscaster's seat from tandem Mike Enriquez and Mel Tiangco. Varied comments have been expressed by viewers online. Granted the chance, would you rather see her nightly on GMA primetime or is it better left alone to the infamous news tandem?

As for The Outsider, this is our take:

1. Jessica Soho's tone is more relaxed yet still interesting.
Her voice may have been popularized already thanks to her very successful magazine show Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho. It has benefited her that any avid Kapuso would identify with her.

No matter how more relaxed her tone is, she still manages to make viewers glued to their screen and be interested to the incoming report.

The way Jessica Soho does it on 24 Oras actually reminds us of our calm yet strict and intelligent professors who, in their calm tone, would surprise you with mind-boggling questions every now and then.

2. Jessica Soho can manage to do a one-man-team newscast granted a company of good reporters.
No need to expound on it.

3. Is it just us or is it just us? 24 Oras has the had the feel of classy newscast since she came in.
Credits to the brand they have created with Enriquez and Tiangco that's more 'masa' but Soho also creates an opposite feel yet still reaching the hearts of the commoners.

With all due respect to the original newscasters, 24 Oras is more like an institution. Perhaps the substitution of Jessica Soho while the two are on break for whatever reason has simply brought the viewers' perspective to one direction-- that 24 Oras can still be better.

Fellow Actors Advice To Aljur Abrenica

Actors speak up on the issue of Aljur Abrenica's plea for a contract release from GMA Network.

What a Kapamilya says...
"Una, tatagan niya yung loob niya. "Pangalawa, kumuha pa siya ng ibang consultant regarding sa matter na ‘to kasi medyo mabigat ‘to, e.

“Kasi naniniwala pa rin ako dun sa sinasabi nila, 'Don’t burn bridges.' Medyo mabigat kasi yung nangyari e. “Naging maingay, sana tahimik na ginawa yung mga bagay-bagay.”

What a fellow Kapuso says...
“I believe the network values him as one of its prime leading men.”

GMA Network's statement so far:
GMA Network does not release its talents from their existing contracts without a valid cause or basis particularly if the reasons cited by its talents are not true. We will respond to the issue when we receive a copy of Aljur Abrenica’s complaint.

Meanwhile, Kapamilya-oriented website did a survey on whether their readers want him in ABS-CBN or not and this has been the result so far.

If Aljur Abrenica were to decide well, he better decide on the camp of his home network. To transfer to a network with bigger stars would be to dive into an ocean where he's not meant to swim. He better become a better diver in his home ocean.

"Release Me": Seeing Things From Aljur Abrenica's Lens

When Aljur Abrenica filed a petition to be released from his GMA Network contract yesterday, most people said 'all he has is a sexy body.' While the writer does not agree, The Outsider thinks this is the very reason why Abrenica has come to this point of his career when he needs to take a stand and demand for something meatier than just showing off his meat.

Thursday, he cries foul as his career, after long years of hardwork, still is stuck in his label as The Ultimate Hunk from Starstruck where he was launched into showbiz. For the many years he has been in showbiz, GMA Network has been successful in giving him the medals of his title. And so after many years, Aljur Abrenica is now considered that hunk in GMA Network, period!

Can anyone blame Abrenica if he comes to this point of wanting change?

Recently, GMA Artist Center actor gets a transformation in his religion which in turn would have transformed even his personal convictions. And with the personal faith that seeks to please God in all aspects, being that 'meat' that every viewer loves to devour in the sensual meaning of it may not be anymore pleasing to Abrenica.

Can anyone blame him if he wants a release from the contract that, to him, has no plans of putting his name in the acting legacy over the meat department?

In the end, all that Abrenica desires is a healthy conversation between him and the network. No plans to transfer to another network at all. Just a demand to be granted. And since it was not granted in a process that would have only involved him, his manager, and his network, he takes it to court to make it sound.

No one can blame him. All this man desires is a meatier career in the acting industry. One that would allow him to leave a mark as an artist not as one who takes off his shirt every now and then. No one can blame this guy if he wants a network who would support him to be the best in this field and not just be popular as one who boasts of his physique. Because more than his body, Abrenica, in his lens, may just want to be used as a talent since that's what he got into this business at the onset. Besides, if the earlier were really his plan, he could have just applied to be a member of Chippendales in USA.

Lovi Poe & Solenn Heussaff are Kapamilya of a new Brand

You read it right! Solenn Heussaff and Lovi Poe are part of a new family. They're the newest endorsers of McDonald's.

Yesterday, Lovi Poe posted a tweet that she is excited to announce her becoming a part of a new family today. And it's official. After years of McDo commercials featuring Kapamilya stars like Jesse Mendiola and Xian Lim, the international food chain has decided to try out the influence of two of the hottest actresses from the Kapuso lane.

Seems like stars from GMA Network have been getting more endorsements these days. Carla Abellana and Sarah Lahbati are also set to appear in their own TV commercials. Whatever it is, it's a good thing! At least they get what they also deserve in a good way.

Alden Richards & Alessandra De Rossi for a GMA Films Movie?

A romantic-comedy film for Alden Richards & Alessandra De Rossi under GMA Films to be directed by Andoy Ranay. Yes!

The headline is indeed interesting but it ends there. Unless of course the bosses behind GMA Films and the creative team would be brilliant enough to actually notice that this idea can actually become a big hit!

Given the right material, a comic role for Alessandra De Rossi who has been waiting and waiting and finally a younger guy comes along who meets the man of his dreams only younger. No conflict on third party is needed. The conflict can just focus on the lady's hard time to accept that she can't be old enough for the guy when it's true love.

Typical, age doesn't matter. But given a great script and a great director, this one will be a new movie to watch out for.

Get a glimpse of their possible onscreen chemistry by watching this clip from Basta Everyday Happy where De Rossi interviews Richards.
