A different kind of fun and excitement filled the air as the Kapamilya stars gathered during the network’s trade event held last Thursday (August 21) at Rockwell Tent.
Roxanne Guinoo, Angelica Panganiban, Cristine Reyes, Riza Santos, Princess Ryan, and Diane Medina boldly gave a glimpse of what’s to come in Banana Split through their hot production number. The men could hardly take off their eyes from these sexy ladies who promised to bring lots of laughter and mischief in the first ever all-girls gag show in the country.
But when John Lloyd Cruz came out as the dashing Armando Solis of I Love Betty La Fea, it was the women’s turn to shriek with the thrill of seeing their celebrity crush onstage. Even his hilarious dance routine with Bea Alonzo—who’s also in character—brought more cheers from the audience. It was hilarious seeing them portray their roles very well especially when John Lloyd greeted ABS-CBN SVP for Entertainment Cory Vidanes in a casual manner, as if they were mere cronies (him being the President of Eco Moda Manila).
Afterwards, a blooming Judy Ann Santos sat down for an interview with the lovely hosts for the night Bianca Gonzales and Mariel Rodriguez. With Humingi Ako Sa Langit coming soon on ABS-CBN, she talked about how happy she is to work with hunk actors Derek Ramsay and Will Devaughn. Judy Ann further claimed that being paired with Derek never caused an issue of jealousy between their real-life sweethearts since they are secured and happy with their respective relationships.
By the time Maricel Soriano took on the hot seat, all eyes were on her as she radiated beauty, confidence, and wit of a true Diamond Star. Even Bianca was awestruck as Maricel reminisced her heydays with former onscreen partner William Martinez, her co-star in the last instalment of The Susan Roces Cinematic Collection: Florinda. Aside from their reunion in his drama/suspense thriller, she claimed that viewers should also watch out for her remarkable scenes with her young co-stars Roxanne Guinoo, Zanjoe Marudo, and Nikki Gil.
Other entertaining parts of the program included Kitchie Nadal and Mark Abaya’s live performance of the OST of Humingi Ako Sa Langit. Pinoy Dream Academy host Billie Crawford also jazzed things up with his cool intermission number. Another highlight was the arrival of the ever fashionable Pokwang, whose comical quips never failed to entertain her enthralled audience. The comedienne joined Mariel and Bianca as they capped off the very successful trade event with the official kick-off of National Bingo, the newest game show coming soon on ABS-CBN.
