Fans of One More Chance have plenty of reasons to rejoice lately, thanks to an upcoming book and reunion of the movie's two leads, John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo. That's not all. In an Instagram post from Bea's handler, the love team reenacted a memorable scene from the hit film, tugging on all the feels of an elated crowd. A big-screen sequel to One More Chance has yet to be confirmed.
Lea Salonga drew flak from her Twitter followers on June 12 after the singer tweeted, "Our country is not yet debt-free, poverty-free, crime-free, or corruption-free. So what are we free from exactly and why do we celebrate it?"
One user replied, "The moment you pressed the 'tweet' button for this message already defines FREEDOM," while another said, "Our celebration is about being free from the colonizers, not being free from the major maladies of the country." She responded to some of the tweets, but didn't let them sway her opinion.
The last time we saw the small-screen tandem of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim was for the 2012 telenovela, Ina Kapatid Anak.

The show will reportedly be aired later this year.
Don't get too comfortable with your Apple Watch just yet. Reports now say that a second generation is already in the works and may launch as early as next year.

Mad Max: Fury Road isn't the most romantic movie out there, but that didn't stop two stunt doubles from falling in love on set.

Nobel Prize winner Tim Hunt recently came under fire after commenting, "Let me tell you about my trouble with girls. Three things happen when they are in the lab. You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry." His statements were naturally slammed as sexist, although he later described them to be "ironic."
His wife, a professor herself, called his comments "an unbelievably stupid thing to say" but defended him, saying, "You can see why it could be taken as offensive if you didn’t know Tim [...] I would not have put up with him if he were sexist."
Despite her supposed illness and continued detention, former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is seeking a third term in Pampanga's second congressional district. According to her lawyer, Raul Lambino, the former president has been able to "work for and look after" her constituents even while in hospital detention, but stressed Arroyo would even do better if she were allowed house arrest.
