IS IT true that Marian Rivera has something to do with Andrea Torres’s transfer from Triple A management to GMA Artist Center?

Triple A Managment is headed by Mr. Tony Tuviera, were Marian, Andrea, Eat Bulaga, Maine Mendoza are under its tutelage.

“Ha? Ang powerful ko naman!

“Mas powerful pa ba ako kesa kay Mr. Tuviera?

“Parang hindi naman yata ako ganun klaseng tao.”

“May kanya-kanya tayong paraan kung anuman, kung bakit.

“Pero kung anuman ang dahilan kung bakit siya umalis ng Triple A, parang labas na yata ako dun.

“Ipinapaubaya ko na ‘yan sa kanila—sa Triple A at kay Mr. Tuviera.

“Una sa lahat, malaki ang respeto ko sa kanila.”

Prior to Andrea’s transfer to GMA Artist Center, rumors came out regarding her rift with marian. Andrea is Dingdong Dantes’s leading lady in

“Alyas Robinhood:Book 1. And now that its Book 2 is airing, the actress remains the love interest of Robinhood. Is Marian jealous of Andrea?

“Kung ang tanong, nagseselos ako? No. Defi nitely no.

“Walang dahilan para magselos ako.

“Ang alam ko, maayos kami ng asawa ko.

“Nakakapagtrabaho siya nang maayos na kasama niya si Andrea at walang problema.

“Ako rin naman, for sure naman may tiwala rin ang asawa ko sa akin, at walang dapat iproblema talaga.”

“Please lang, tama na!”

Was there any truth to the issue that she surprisingly confronted Andrea at the taping of “Alyas Robinhood”?

“Okay, sugod? Wala akong dapat na isugod at walang dahilan para sumugod ako.

“Kayo naman, nagpunta lang ako ng taping, masama bang dalawin ang asawa ko?”

“May memo na ba na bawal dalawin ang asawa at magdala ng pagkain?

“Actually, kahit tanungin niyo si Dong…

“Si Dong kasi yung, ‘Dalawin mo naman ako….’ lalo na nung sunud-sunod ang trabaho naming dalawa.”

“Wala naman sigurong masama kung dinadalaw ko ang asawa ko at kasama ko ang anak niya na nami-miss niya.”

If that’s the case, how come the issue between her and Andrea never ceases?

“Well, kung ang tinatanong ninyo ay kung paano kami ni Andrea, ng Triple A at ng asawa ko, ganito kasimple lang ‘yan—ang pagkakaalam ko, wala kaming problema ni Andrea.

“The last time na magkita kaming dalawa, niyakap niya ako.

“Sabi niya sa akin, ‘Ate Yan, na-miss kita.’

“So, para sa akin, wala talaga kaming problema at all.

“Maayos kami ng asawa ko. Masaya kami. Masaya kami sa anak ko.

“Masaya ako sa Triple A.”

“At kung si Andrea, may problema siya, willing ako na gawin sa kanya kung ano ang ginagawa ko dati.

“Kung may problema siya, alam niya ang number ko, at makikinig ako sa kanya.

“Tulad ng ginagawa niya dati, ‘Ate Yan, kailangan ko ng ganito. Ate Yan, tulungan mo ako...’ kahit ngayon, gagawin ko yun sa kanya.”

According to Marian she treats Andrea like a younger sister and vice versa.

“Well, open ako na makinig kung may problema siya, as ate niya.

“Kasi yun naman talaga ako sa buhay niya.

“Kahit tanungin mo siya, anything under the sun… ‘Ate Yan, ano tingin mong kailangan kong bilhin? Kailangan ko ba ‘to? Anong kailangan kong iluto?’

“Lahat ‘yan, itinatawag niya sa akin.

“At, this time, willing pa rin ako at open pa rin ang dalawang kamay ko para makinig sa kanya.

SPEAKING OF “Alyas Robnhood: Book 2”.

It’s GMA-7’s “Alays Robinhood: Book 2” vs. ABSCBN’s “Ang Probinsyano” Dingdong Dantes’s comeback TV series Alyas Robin Hood aired its pilot episode today, August 14, on the first slot of GMA Telebabad after 24 Oras.

The timeslot was formerly occupied by the fantasy series Mulawin vs. Ravena, which moved to the second slot.

During the first run of Alyas Robin Hood in 2016, it was placed on the second slot of the Kapuso network.

This was the first time after many years that a show on GMA-7’s primetime line-up moved timeslots Dominic Zapata, the director of “Alyas Robinhood, admitted that he is aware that other shows in the rival network are performing well in the ratings game.

Back then, it was believed that Alyas Robin Hood’s rival would be the ABS-CBN top-rating show La Luna Sangre, starring Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, and former Kapuso Richard Gutierrez.

Because of these timeslot changes, Alyas Robin Hood now competes against Coco Martin’s Ang Probinsyano, which has been airing on television for two years since September 2015.

Direk Dominic chooses to look at the positive side things despite the stiff competition between the two networks.

He admitted, “I don’t mind losing out to competition sa kabilang network. If we put up a good fight, these two networks, if we put up a good fight, people will still watch you.

“Huwag ka lang yung kulelat na kulelat. Kung kulelat na kulelat ka, aasa na lang sila sa network na nanalo.

“And if that disappoints, they will stop watching it.

“I like good competition. Iron sharpens iron so let’s both do a good job and in that way, we’re able to safeguard our industry.”

The director of Kapuso breakthrough projects such as Mulawin (2004), My Husband’s Lover (2013), and The Rich Man’s Daughter (2015) has a different way of responding to the tough competition on primetime.

He pointed out, “Okay sa akin yun, if the network’s objective is to beat competition, then I will gladly oblige.

“But if I do so, when I beat competition, I don’t try to look what their weak points are, to be honest.

“What I look at are my weak points, saan ako mahina. Kung feeling ko, ang galing ko na, ibig sabihin, you’re being too self-absorbed into thinking that there is no room for improvement.

“That’s why I ask around, anong pangit. I don’t want to find out kung anong nagustuhan mo sa show, sabihin mo sakin kung ano yung pangit.”

He also admitted that it is tough doing a sequel for Alyas Robin Hood since it performed strongly during its six-month run. The first installment aired from September 2016 to February 2017.

“When we were doing Robin Hood 1, we pulled out all the stops, we do everything we possibly could without knowing that there will be a second installment. And then, a second installment comes along.

“When you’re the type of person who pushes the boundaries, siyempre, there’s no other way but to outdo yourself!

“How could you imagine outdoing yourself when you’ve already pulled out all the stops you possibly could just a few months back?!

“I’d rather outdo a competition and see what they did na, ‘Ah kaya kong talunin yan! I’ll just outdo this.’

“Ito ginawa mo lahat, ito na yung sinagad yung sarili mo, wasak na wasak ka, tapos tatalunin mo pa!”

Despite these challenges, Direk Dominic is ready to take on the challenge of doing sequels. He said with a smile,

“Parang medyo experimental in a way, that we do a second season, if it works out, then maybe we can do something that they do in the States and then parang may off season and back season, I think it’s great kasi makakakasa ka ulit ng magagandang scenes.

“If you’re able to go off season for a while and still have the audience follow you after that, that would be great for everyone!”
