(SPOT.ph) Busy day, Spotters? We quickly recap 10 things you might have missed while you were off the radar.
If you feel like the Kardashians are everywhere, you aren't alone. Meet John Brown, a news anchor from Florida who has had enough of the celebrity family. On Monday, he and his co-anchors were reporting the super-important news that Kylie Jenner named her new rabbit "Bruce," after Caitlyn Jenner.
He stood up and began to walk off set, saying, "I've had enough Kardashians! I can’t take any more Kardashian stories on this show." His tirade continued off-camera as he shouted, "It's a non-story! You're talking about this family every freaking day on this show. Nobody cares about this family!"
It's official. According to Sen. Chiz Escudero, he and his wife, Heart Evangelista, are set to renew their vows on their first wedding anniversary next year. He clarified that it will be a simple ceremony and not a full-blown wedding. The special guests will be Heart's parents, whom you might remember skipped their first wedding because they disapproved of it.
You know her from projects like Forevermore. My Amnesia Girl, and It Takes a Man and a Woman. Now, rumor has it that she is slated to direct the highly anticipated sequel to One More Chance. She confirmed that she is working with John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo this year but stressed, "Depende po sa clamor ninyo kung gagawin itong Part 2 or bagong kuwento."
