Jackie Rice started her showbiz career after being named StarStruck 3 Ultimate Female Survivor. After winning the reality talent search, she appeared on various GMA programs like Encantadia, Fantastikids, Love to Love, Princess Charming, Fantastic Man, Dyesebel, Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang, Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat sa Akin, Ikaw Sana, Darna, Bubble Gang, Panday Kids and Ilumina.
Her first starring role in a one-off drama anthology was in 2006 where she portrayed herself in the Jackie Rice Life Story of Magpakailanman. Her rist starring role in a weekly drama anthology was in 2010 in Dear Friend: Tisay.
This 2011, Jackie Rice bagged her biggest role to date – a title role in an afternoon teleserye. She will topbill “Sisid,” an afternoon soap opera under the Dramarama sa Hapon block of GMA. It will replace Kris Bernal‘s “Koreana” which is about to air its last episode on February 25, 2011.
Jackie's leading men in Sisid are JC Tiuseco, Ian Batherson, and Dominic Roco. It is set to air its pilot episode on February 28, 2011.
Aljur Abrenica was recently named “Best Asian Model” at the 2011 Asia Model Festival Awards (AMFA) which is being held annually in Korea. The hunk actor and recording artist is currently seen as one of the performers of Party Pilipinas, the Kapuso Network’s Sunday musical variety program, and on his first title role in the new primetime series “Machete.”

Carla Abellana and Geoff Eigenmann were on-screen partners in Rosalinda, The Last Prince and Basahang Ginto.
They got separated for a while on the last quarter of 2010 as Geoff was paired with Glaiza de Castro in Grazilda and Carla Abellana was paired with Dennis Trillo in The Last Romance.
This year, Carla and Geoff will be reunited in the upcoming primetime series “Magic Palayok.” This is their second title role in a primetime series as a loveteam after Rosalinda and their fourth overall after The Last Prince and Basahang Ginto.
Their last project together was the afternoon soap opera Mars Ravelo’s Basahang Ginto and it’s their most successful team-up because the said project was able to top the daytime race not only in Mega Manila but also in Kantar Media’s national TV ratings. This is perhaps the reason why GMA decided to bring them back again in the primetime block.
“Magic Palayok” is set to replace Bantatay on February 26, 2011.
“Alakdana” is the first starring role of newcomer Louise delos Reyes. It registered 8.1% in Mega Manila and 14.3% nationwide. Its rival “Bianong Bulag” starring Jason Abalos garnered 3.9% in Mega Manila and 11.5% nationwide.
Two other programs premiered yesterday, the Asianovela “I Love You So” starring Vaness Wu and the fantaserye “Machete” starring Aljur Abrenica.
The Vaness Wu starrer failed to topple the top-rating koreanovela “Temptation of Wife” both in Mega Manila and nationwide. Machete, on the other hand, was successful in beating Mara Clara in Mega Manila but failed nationwide.

Naglabas na ng mga predictions ang mga manghuhula tungkol sa ilang mga showbiz personalities para sa taong 2011.
Nangunguna sa kanilang prediksyon ay ang napipintong hiwalayan ng Kapuso power couple na sina Marian Rivera at Dingdong Dantes.
Ayon kay Bro. Arman Cuban, kilala bilang “Famous Psychic of Asia,” nakatakdang maghiwalay sina Marian at Dingdong sa pagkalahati ng taon.
Ayon sa kanya, ang rason kung bakit maghihiwalay ang dalawa ay “third party” sa side ni Dingdong. Makakadagdag pa raw sa napipintong hiwalayan ang pagiging nega ni Marian at maging ang mga magulang daw ni Dingdong ay hindi boto kay Super Inday.
Ayon naman sa column ni Cristy Fermin sa Bulgar, isang modelo raw ang pinopormahan ngayon ni Dingdong at hindi raw tumitigil ang binata hangga’t hindi niya nakukuha ang cell phone number ng girlaloo.
Ano kaya ang masasabi nina Marian at Dingdong sa mga hulang ito laban sa kanilang relasyon?
