1. Ex-couple Solenn Heussaff and Derek Ramsay reunite

No, we don't mean they're dating again. The two are reuniting on the big screen for an upcoming romance flick entitled Love is Blind. In an interview, Derek said that he broke his own heart when he called it quits with Solenn, explaining, "Parang may nangyayari sa relationship na I guess, sobra kayong nagmamahalan, sometimes you bring the worst out of each other. For me, it was too much turmoil, I had to get out."



The two dated for four years before they both made it big in showbiz.


2. Joey de Leon and Lea Salonga make up

Over the weekend, Lea Salonga made headlines for her "kababawan" remarks about entertainment programs. Although she didn't name any names, AlDub fans criticized her for her comment. Eat Bulaga host Joey de Leon even joined in, saying, "Hindi naman pala daw AlDub pinatatamaan ni Lea. Baka naman yung kabila? Nagtatanong lang po."


On Thursday, Lea thanked him for "giving [her] the benefit of the doubt." Joey replied, "No worries. Wala na 'yon! Magsimula na lang tayong lahat ng a whole new world! Mabuhay ka!"
