Many celebrities from the entertainment industry are mourning the untimely death of Jaclyn Jose. Among them is Nora Aunor, whose latest project with the equally great late actress is Pieta.

Kasama po ako ng buong industriya na nagluluksa sa pagpanaw ni Ms. Jaclyn Jose, isang premyadong aktres at kaibigang maituturing ng marami sa atin. Ang kaniyang buhay at ang maraming pelikula at programa sa telebisyon na ating tinangkilik ay mga mabubuting alaalang maaari nating isipin sa mga sandaling itong lugmok ang ating mga puso sa kaniyang pagkawala (I am with the whole industry who is mourning the death of Ms. Jaclyn Jose, an award-winning actress and a friend of many of us.  Her life and the many movies and programs on television which we patronized are good memories which we can think of in this moment where our hearts are hurt by her loss),” she said in her statement.

“I will miss u coming up to my room tulog ako tatabihan mo ako (I’m still asleep and you will sleep next to me). pag nagising ako sasabihin mo anak na miss ka lang ni Nanay (When I wake up, you will say, I just miss you).”   

Barretto revealed that if she was going through something, she’d go to Jose’s house and go straight to the Jose’s room. There the two women would embrace.

Gladys Reyes, who last worked Jose in Apag, was utterly shocked after learning about her senior colleague’s death.

Nakakagulat, nabigla tayong lahat. Ang dami naming pinagsamahan, simula 9 years old ako sa Lovingly Yours, Helen hanggang dito sa huling movie na Apag, di sya nagbago sakin.
Isa itong
vlog na to sa di ko makakalimutan na masayang bonding namin sa set.
Di ko makakalimutan lahat ng tips, pag-alaga sakin na parang ate talaga. Nabawasan na naman ng isang magaling at de kalibreng aktor ang industriya.

We have worked in so many projects together, starting when I was 9 years old in Lovingly Yours, Helen until this last movie Apag, she has not changed for me. This one vlog is something I can never forget that is about our happy bonding on the set.  I will not forget all the tips, caring for me like she’s an elder sister. We lost one great and high-calibre actor in the industry. We will miss the one and only Jaclyn Jose),” she said in her caption of a short video with the award-winning actress.

Gela Atayde belies sister Ria Atayde is pregnant

Gela Atayde denounced rumors that her older sister Ria Atayde is on the family way. The rumor stemmed from when Ria and her boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo recently announced their wedding engagement.

Netizens were quick to deduce that the engagement was hurriedly made because Atayde is infanticipating. 

The younger Atayde doused rumors when interviewed by ABS-CBN, saying that her sister Ria has been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

“For me, I can’t say much yet. For now, no. They’re trying, that’s for sure. My sister has a PCOS, and it would be a miracle if she has a child,” she said.

Gela disclosed that should it be true, there would be no problem as “my parents also are supportive of that. My sister nga kasi is at that age, turning 32 this year, medyo kailangan na din (It’s a bit needed).”
