Decided to Play with the Emotions of the Audience

When the audience watches their Favorite Teleserye (FT), they usually think about the performance of their idols and the plot itself. Viewers are unable to see the brainstorming sessions that are held for long periods, the arguments among writers in terms of character development, and most importantly, the debates on who should be paired with whom and the rest of the cast. Still, what the public is unaware of is that every station that produces a teleserye invests much money. Hence, the formula for a teleserye should bring in profit for the network. If a teleserye flops, then the network loses its investment and the project will not stay on air either until the season is over or even before the end of one season.

However, despite the complexity of producing a teleserye, networks today are sensitive to the comments of netizens. Given that access to social media is easily available, fans have taken they grunts and rants to cyberspace. For example, if fans prefer a certain loveteam and the network believes the idea has potential, then the station will give in to fan requests. Sometimes, when a network makes a sudden move of including a talent and the netizens did not like that talent, a high probability exists that the talent will be pulled out a project.

The vibrancy of the followers of this loveteam is being tested, as most fans are unhappy with the way the creative team is handling the story. Given that the teleserye has been consistently getting high ratings, the one time that the teleserye rating went down, the followers engaged members of the creative team in a debate concerning the development of the plot of the story. While the creative team would always want the audience to have faith in their production, this time, the fans were too concerned of the future story and started to question the writers.

At one point, the fans and the creative team agreed to a ceasefire. Soon, the storyline of their teleserye started picking up again, but then, one episode disappointed fans. Ironically, that particular episode was recommended by the creative team and they were confident of their work and requested for a certain number of tweets for the said episode. However, fans noticed one scene had seemed to allude to their previous discussions with creative. While the said scene could have been dismissed by fans, an exchange of tweets coming from someone in the production allegedly indicated that the controversial scene was really done with malice and a way to get back at fans who have had nothing good to say.

While fans give ratings and support, the production team of any teleserye should be considerate of their viewers. Now that the age of social media is thriving, any message posted by anyone could be easily misconstrued or actually reveal the intentions of the writer. The process of making a teleserye is really not as sweet as people would romanticize it to be.

A Jeopardizing Move

A wedding is a significant event in which couples only want the best of services to make the day memorable. Thus, wedding services that seem to have an impressive reputation are contacted and deals are finalized. The deals are done in good faith, goodwill, and trust. A contract is sealed and money is given to service providers to assure that they will indeed deliver. Given that most service providers are in demand, couples who pay for these professionals would have sealed the deal in the earliest time, which is usually a year before the actual wedding date.

When this couple decided to get married, their families only wanted to get the best services for their wedding. One crucial factor in the wedding, other than the solemnizing rites and reception, is the choice of professional wedding suppliers. Between the Low Profile Better Supplier (LP) and the More Publicized Supplier (MP), the latter was chosen. After a series of emails, the deal was sealed and MP received his down payment almost more than a year ahead of the wedding date.

Months later after receiving the down payment, MP suddenly emailed the bride informing her that he is backing out of the contract because he has an out of country shoot for that particular date. MP even said that he would just have his staff attend to the wedding. Of course, this suggestion was turned down. While the staff might be competent, the money was for the services of MP, not his staff. After being so stressed for several months, the couple decided to get in touch with LP upon the recommendation of the wedding coordinator. Sadly, LP was no longer available already.

Because a wedding is supposed to be a happy event and should be spared from negative distractions, the couple had no choice but to look for another supplier.  Lucky for MP that the couple opted to take the higher road because when he backed out of the deal, legal options were already being considered, which was the reason why his plan to return the down payment was met coldly at the onset.

As to the reason why MP reneged on his word of honor is that he found out that a celebrity wanted him to do her wedding overseas. Apparently, he opted for the highly publicized wedding of a Pretty Celebrity (PC) rather than a private one. Given that MP was out of the country for several days, he also bumped off few other weddings just to accommodate PC. The question is if ruining his reputation and professionalism was worth covering the wedding of PC.

“The older you get the more you realize that just because someone has an important job doesn't necessarily mean that they do it responsibly, or are even good at it. There are many 'D' students running around with high social status gained from their seemingly important positions. Integrity and proficiency are not a given. These qualities can only be proven over time.” ― Gary Hopkins

Movie Review: Love Me Tomorrow

Image courtesy of

Cast: Piolo Pascual, Dawn Zulueta, Coleen Garcia
Director: Gino Santos
Rating: PG
Produced by: Star Cinema

The movie is a romantic light drama that delves into the love journey of three generations.There are issues which are real and happening but owing to their sensitive nature, are rarely discussed. They are in fact often labeled as taboo.

"Love Me Tomorrow" is a generational love story of its three lead characters. JC (Piolo Pascual) is a man who, at 35 still leads a happy- go-lucky life as a DJ (disc jockey), Janine  (Coleen Garcia), a young socialite blogger who covers up her life’s emptiness through all night partying, and Christy (Dawn Zulueta) as a desirable  50-year old widow whose success as a fashion designer leaves a kind of void that needed filling up. 

Taking center stage as well are the Tita’s of Manila (a spoof of the social culture of mostly middle-class aunts in Manila) composed of Carmi Martin and friends who love clubbing and partying and yes, dating men. 

Liberated Carmi invites Dawn to her group and urges her to have a second chance at life (read: love life) after being recently widowed. The movie presents the supposedly conservative Christy going and playing along with the very much married but flirty Carmi’s kind of fun.  

As if on cue, JC meets the beautiful Christy in a not-so-pleasant accidental encounter. As these accidental encounters become more frequent, their careers intertwine in the process, along with Janine’s who was previously JC’s friend (with benefits). 

Unknowingly, despite of, or maybe because of their age difference, JC and Christy  begin falling for each other amidst conflict brought in by Janine who is still very much into JC. As if to assuage Christy’s fears, JC assures her that Janine is no more than a  ‘fubu’  (fuck buddy) as he labels it – but in reality is a no-label connection. 

Christy tries to be circumspect but love wins for her and JC…for a while. Sure JC knows which buttons to press to endear himself to her even more. What can be more charming than making Christy’s favorite song his audition piece for a DJ in her upcoming fashion launch.  

The movie’s concept is supposedly a refreshing one for Dawn whose comedic timing is quite commendable. Her silly scenes with Piolo and Carmi are a natural. Unfortunately, the plot comes off as weak, with pacing and editing that leave the audience confused at times, notably in most of its dramatic scenes. 

Some scenes would have created more impact had they been better thought of in terms of execution and delivery. The effort is there, but it's clearly not enough. 

As a whole, "Love Me Tomorrow" is a good enough vehicle for Dawn to try a different track at this point in her career. But just like her role in the movie, her image should not be compromised. Her fans may not be ready for it yet. Indeed, age should not limit you to do what you want - but with responsibility. 

Meanwhile, it can't be denied that Coleen's acting has matured in terms of depth. Her looks is a much-appreciated bonus, a refreshing, natural beauty. 

As for Piolo, he needs to be more convincing in his dramatic scenes, most of which come off as unnatural. But in the looks department, the hunk is as desirable as ever without even trying, always a visual treat for girls and gays alike.  

By the way, the MTRCB is quite lax in giving this movie a PG rating with all those sexy scenes and language fit only for adult consumption.    

"Love Me Tomorrow" also stars Freddie Webb, Maxene Magalona, Anna Abad Santos, now showing in cinemas.

Repost: Amber Heard's Shocking Abuse Claims Against Johnny Depp: Details of Alleged Attack 2 Days Before She Filed for Divorce

In court filings, Amber Heard claims that Johnny Depp hit her with a cell phone, pulled her hair and screamed at her last Saturday night – and was abusive to her throughout their 15-month marriage.

In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Heard, 30, who filed for divorce from Depp on Monday and was granted a temporary restraining order against Depp on Friday, chronicles two separate accounts in which she says Depp physically abused her – including the night cops were called and she suffered a black eye.

"During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me," she claims in the documents.

Depp's attorney filed a response that alleges that Heard is trying to expedite and force Depp to pay spousal support.

"Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse," said the attorney, according to court documents.

However, Depp has not yet directly responded to the abuse allegations. His attorney and rep have not responded to requests for comment.

On Saturday, May 21, Heard claims that she was having a conversation with two friends when Depp, 52, entered their downtown Los Angeles apartment. As the group of friends began to talk about the recent passing of Depp's mom, the actor "began obsessing about something that was untrue" and became "extremely angry," she states in the documents.

In attempt to help relieve the situation, Heard began calling a friend who Depp was requesting to speak to, she states.

"Johnny ripped the cell phone from my hand and began screaming profanities and insults at iO [the friend]," she said. "I heard iO yell at me to get out of the house. Johnny then grabbed the cellphone, wound up his arm like a baseball pitcher and threw the cellphone at me striking my cheek and eye with great force." Heard submitted photos appearing to show a bruised eye as evidence.

Heard says she covered her face and began to cry, then actor "charged" at her and "taunted" her, questioning if the phone actually hit her.

"He then forcibly pulled back my hair as I attempted to stand up from the sofa," she said. "I then yelled 'Call 911' – hoping it would be heard by iO who was still on the phone."

"Johnny continued screaming at me, pulling my hair, striking me and violently grabbing my face," she continued.

After a friend from next door entered the apartment with a key previously provided by Heard, Depp ran out of the apartment "smashing everything he could" with a wine bottle, Heard claims. She also submitted photos of damaged possessions.

An LAPD spokesperson told PEOPLE that officers responded to the scene, but determined "there was no evidence of any crime."

On Friday, a judge ordered Depp (who's currently in Europe) to stay 100 yards away from Heard and granted her exclusive use of their apartment, though Depp was not ordered to pay any temporary spousal support or attorney's fees.

Along with Heard's filing about the events from Saturday night, the friend who entered the apartment during the argument also submitted her account of the night.

She claimed that Depp "slapped my hands away and screamed foul obscenities at me" as she tried to defend Heard.
