LJ Reyes has addressed the possibility of her former flame Paulo Avelino eventually winning KC Concepcion’s heart.
Without the slightest hint of bitterness, the Kapuso actress said, “Kahit sino naman pong lalaki ang mapasagot si KC parang talagang swerteng swerte.”
Months back, Paulo and KC seemed destined for a romance but it fizzled away just as quickly. Recently, however, it had been reported that the two had started seeing each other again.
LJ is not bothered about it at all. If anything she said, “Happy ako na happy sila.”
She explained, “Maganda kasi ’pag ’yung isang tao (Paulo) masaya ’yung outlook niya sa buhay (kasi) maganda din ’yung nabibigay (niyang) pagmamahal sa anak namin at sa ibang tao.”
LJ has a three-year-old son with Paulo.
The actress added that any conversation she has with Paulo these days “concerns the kid lang,” adding, “Civil kami. We talk about Aki,”
That said, she pointed out, “Mahal na mahal niya ’yung bata. ’Yun naman, undeniable ’yun.”
When prodded, LJ said she is clueless if her son has already met KC. “Kapag hinihingi ni Paulo si Aki, hindi ko naman po tinatanong kung ano ’yung ginagawa nila,” she insisted.
Formerly reticent in discussing her relationship with the father of her child, the Kapuso star has become more open about it.
“There is nothing to hide now,” she declared. “Madami pa kasi kaming dapat ayusin dati so since lahat okay na, masasagot ko na ang mga tanong tungkol samin.”
That said, LJ is nevertheless putting her focus on her career and her son rather than on matters of the heart.
“Kailangan naman talagang maging very careful tayo (sa pagpili ng mamahalin) dahil may anak na ako,” she said.
Bea Alonzo admitted that she and leading man Paulo Avelino had to undergo a "sensuality workshop" to overcome the initial awkwardness between them in filming scenes for the ABS-CBN series "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon," which premiered on primetime Monday.
Comedian Vice Ganda got a taste of Paulo Avelino's chocolate on "Gandang Gabi Vice" (GGV) Sunday when they imitated a scene from ABS-CBN's upcoming series, ''Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon.'' Avelino plays the role of a chocolate maker in the TV series, while his on-screen partner, Bea Alonzo, plays multiple roles including that of a feisty lawyer and heiress to a chocolate factory.--Gandang Gabi Vice, June 15, 2014
After the successful 14th year presentation of “Earthday Jam” comes another unique musical campaign project dubbed “CC Tunes: In Tune with Climate Change” from Earthday Jam Foundation, Inc.
“CC Tunes” will be held at the Market Market Activity Center in Taguig City on June 17. Related documentaries will be shown at 5 p.m. followed by performances from producer Lou Bonnevie and singer Kitchie Nadal along with OPM bands Moonstar88, Silent Sanctuary, Gracenote and Mayonnaise.

‘SANA BUKAS PA ANG KAHAPON’ PREMIERES JUNE 16
Finally, the much-awaited teleserye “Sana Bukas pa ang Kahapon” topbilled by Bea Alonzo, Albert Martinez and Paulo Avelino will start airing on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida tomorrow after “Ikaw Lamang.”
Because all the movies she has made were box office blockbusters, Bea is now dubbed as the “Movie Queen of the New Generation.”
“It’s very humbling. I feel so blessed and happy,” says Bea, who plays two characters on her new series.
Asked to compare her “Sana Bukas Pa ang Kahapon” leading men, Albert and Paulo, Bea says “Hindi mo sila puwede ikumpara (You cannot compare them). Kuya Albert has more experience, while Paulo has this rawness in him. What I can say is that I’m very happy to be working with them both. They’re very supportive and generous actors.”
And while her role is physically draining because she keeps changing clothes and makeup all the time, Bea likes the challenge of it all and is very proud of the outcome.
“Sana Bukas pa ang Kahapon” is directed by Jerome Pobocan and Trina Dayrit.
