IT’S BEEN a while, the issue between Coco Martin and Julia Montes never ceases.

Why does the news never fade?

“Kasi, siguro, close talaga kami. Hindi lang siya naging close dahil lang sa trabaho, kasi prior nga, lagi naming sinasabi before pa, nagkasama na kami. Hindi siya yung parang after work, wala na. May communication pa rin.” says Julia.

Is it true that Julia feels jealous when Coco is paired with another women?

“Bakit ako magdyi-jealous?

Hindi po. And actually, sabi ko nga, e, bagay sila as love team. Wala dapat ipagselos.”

How did she feel she ws not paired with Coco in “Ang Probinsyano? However, before Coco did “Ang Probinsyano” the actor was already teamed up with Julia for three teleseryes.

Their first team up was in 2012 when they did “Walang Hanggan” Then in “Ikaw lamang” and its sequel “Ikaw lamang” in 2014.

“Ang selfish ko naman.”

Does she think Coco is perfect boyfriend material?

“Maano siya, maalagang tao, mabait, mapagmahal. So, kung as a boyfriend, yes.”

With him?

“For sure, sa iba din.”

Julia and Coco live in one subdivision somewhere in Quezon City.

“Hindi naman tawid-tawiran lang, ilang streets din. Kapitbahay. Kasi nung time na naghahanap ako ng property, katrabaho ko siya that time.

“Nagtatanong ako kung saan ang mga okay. May mga nakita ako, at tatlo sigurong property nakita ko sa Casa Milan. Tapos sabi niya, okay naman, kasi andun siya.”

Whenever she had problems it was Coco who gives her a helping hand.

“Isa po siya. Wala, kasi close talaga kami, e. Giving kasi siyang tao, e. Talagang parang ang tawag ko sa kanya, mentor. Nung nag-i-start [pa lang ako] sa trabaho, talagang gina-guide niya talaga ako. Tsaka ganun siyang tao, e, hindi lang siya sa akin, sa mga nakakatrabaho niya. Talagang giving siya, e.”

Despite his busy schedules, Julia admitted she remains friends with Coco.

IN HIS first project with GMA, former kapamilya actor Jason Abalos will play support to Dennis Trillo in “The One that got Away”.

“Wala namang problema sa akin kung bigyan nila ako ng lead or supporting role muna. Siyempre, bago tayong pasok sa GMA-7 at kung ano ang ibigay nila sa akin, thank you very much po. Saka itong role ko sa TOTGA, maganda siya, e. Hindi lang basta suporta lang ang role ko. Mai-involve ako with Rhian at magkakaroon kami ng confl ict ni Dennis over her.”

Since his transfer in 2017, Jason did a lot of guesting from GMA’s various shows.

“Yun ang masaya kasi lahat ng shows naikot ko. Sa kabila kasi [ABS-CBN], kapag may teleserye ako hindi ako madalas nakakapagguest sa ibang shows. Dito hanggang sa game shows nagagawa kong mag-guest. Kaya ang saya lang kasi nakikilala ko halos lahat ng mga artista ng Kapuso network.”

jason and girlfriend Vickie Rushton stays stronger despite some controversies.

“Walang problema sa amin ni Vickie. We’re okay at may mga business kaming tinayo. Right now, nasa Bacolod siya at nagtayo siya ng party needs and flower shop doon. Meron naman kaming salon sa Nueva Ecija. Magaling si Vickie sa negosyo at sa kanya ako naengganyo na mag-business habang kumikita tayo.”

How true that Vickie is planning to join Bb Pilipinas 2018?

Is he supportive with this?

“Kahit ano pa yun, 100 per cent ang support ko sa kanya.”

HEART EVANGELISTA’S taste doesn’t come cheap.

Her Cartier Love bracelets can fetch a total of PHP9,666,010 at today’s exchange rate of PHP50.20.

Heart’s Instagram feed reveals her exquisite taste.

From her clothes and shoes to her handbags, and even her tablescapes, the Kapuso actress obviously likes the finer things in life.

The same can be said about her choice in jewelry.

The 32-year-old actress favors Cartier, which is famous for its jewelry and watches.

Heart owns several Cartier Love bracelets from the jeweler’s Love collection, which dates back to the 1970s.

According to the French luxury brand’s website, a Love bracelet is a “flat bangle studded with screws that locks to the wrist.”

A distinct characteristic of the bracelet is that it can only be opened and fastened with a screwdriver, thus serving to “sanctify inseparable love.”

Sometimes Heart wears one or two Love bracelets, as shown in this photo where she is twinning with her husband, Senator Chiz Escudero.

But when she is wearing several pieces all together, it’s one eye-catching sight. Heart owns six Cartier Love bracelets, with different designs.

Given the bracelets’ prices (in U.S. dollars) on Cartier’s website, and today’s current exchange rate of PHP50.20, we calculated the total cost of Heart’s Cartier Love bracelet collection.

Her most expensive piece is the diamond-paved Love bracelet in white gold, which is sold at $56,000 or PHP2,811,200.

Her diamondpaved Love bracelet in white gold and ceramic is priced at $43,300 or PHP2,173,660.

She also has a diamond-paved Love bracelet in pink gold and one in yellow gold, with a price tag of $40,100 or PHP2,013,020 each.

Her Love bracelet in white gold costs $6,750 or PHP338,850, while the one in pink gold is slightly lower at $6,300 or PHP316,260.

For her six bracelets, Heart’s collection comes up to a whopping PHP9,666,010! With this kind of investment, it’s no wonder the Kapuso actress takes advantage of the jewelry’s versatility. Heart wears her bangles on diff erent occasions.

From a casual get-up of white T-shirt and jeans to attending official functions with her husband to donning them at a formal ball, Heart makes sure the pieces are worth their cost-per-wear.
