Jake Ejercito, Out! Andi Eigenmann says: "Albie Casi�o is my only boyfriend before Jake. Common sense!"

Read below Andi Eigenmann's twitter post 14 hours ago giving us an exact hint on who really is the father of her unborn child.

For your better understanding, I've only had one boyfriend before Jake whom I've only been seeing for the past 2 months. Therefore, Jake cannot be the said ex-boyfriend whom everyone has been talking about. #commonsense"

Now, can you guess the culprit? Kailangan pa bang i-memorize yan?

I�ve had my fair share of experiences when it comes to love. I�ve had all kinds of relationships that might be helpful to the kids right now. It would be awesome to at least share with them a little bit of things that I know,� Bianca shares.

Although Bianca and Andrei have had their share of blunders in the romance department, they neither lost their pro-active stance in the dating scene nor their sense of humor in finding true love. Their treasure chest of experiences, insights and practical tips, they vow to gamely share them on the show with viewers and contestants alike.

The DREAMDATE duo is looking forward, as well, to learning love lessons from the t.v. viewers and the dating contestants.

Newcomer Coleen Garcia Causes Rift Between Enrique Gil and Sam Concepcion

ABS-CBN�s young leading men Enrique Gil and Sam Concepcion play half-brothers with a sibling rivalry in �Good Vibes,� but could they possibly be rivals in real-life as well?

Enrique, after all, is the former boyfriend of their co-star, model-turned-actress Coleen Garcia, who is now being paired with Sam.

The former �Little Big Star� champion recently admitted that he is now ready to have a girlfriend, which prompted people to assume he is wooing Coleen, his love interest in the show.

Coleen, meawhile, admitted she also has a �past� with Sam. They used to appear in the same shows, he as a singer and she as a model.

We crossed paths when we were younger, around 9 years old pa lang kami. But we never really talked to each other,� she said.

It was only in �Good Vibes� that they become friends and it didn�t take long before they got closer to each other than to anyone else in the group.

We�re all close in GV. But since we started taping, Sam and I became much closer because we�re both playful and like to joke around,� she said.

But Coleen was quick to point out that her real-life relationship with Sam can�t be compared to that of Monique and Marc�s, their characters in the show.

Si Monique and Marc, their relationship with each other as mag-ex is very heavy and emotional. Ako kasi, I'm a very bubbly and happy person. So with Sam, I make sure that everything is light. Bawal ang negativity, dapat palaging positive,� she explained.

While the two heartthrobs remain mum about the issues about them, it is obvious that their characters in the show still have a long way to go before getting along for real.

Viewers should not miss the coming episode of the leading youth-oriented program �Good Vibes,� where the dance groups of half-brothers Marc (Sam) and Troy (Enrique) clash during an audition to a contest they are both joining, unintentionally.

Wanting to revive the Sinagdiwa dance troupe, Marc urges his friends to try their luck at the Pilipinas dance challenge, the same contest being eyed by their former co-member Troy with his original crew Bustamoves. Complicating the situation further is Geleen�s (Linn Oeymo) desire to join Troy�s group.

Fans of the show�s love teams should also stay tuned as Troy finally decide which girl he will pursue as girlfriend - Geleen or his best friend Maribeth (Devon Seron). Marc and his ex-girlfriend Monique (Coleen Garcia) also have to settle the score on their own relationship.

Franco (Arron Villaflor) also tries to save his friendship with Marc, who found out about his relationship with Marc�s sister Carmi (Kristel Moreno).

Find out where these exciting turn of events head to this Sunday on �Good Vibes,� after �ASAP ROCKS� on ABS-CBN.

President Noynoy Aquino's First Year in Service Will be Reviewed by Karen Davila in �Krusada�

During his inauguration, Pres. Benigno �Noynoy� Aquino III spoke about taking the straight path in leadership, called the people his �bosses,� and said that without corruption in the government, no Filipino will wallow in poverty.

A year after he coined such catchphrases as �tuwid na daan,� �kayo ang boss ko,� and �kung walang corrupt, walang mahirap,� was he able to stay true to his promises to the people?

This Thursday, June 30, in �Krusada,� ABS-CBN news anchor Karen Davila will look through Aquino�s performance in his first 365 days in office.

His administration did come up with projects such as the "conditional cash transfer" for poor people and �tawid pasada� for drivers affected by the oil price hike. However, some people wonder if these programs really address the problem or just provide short-term solutions.

Some of the resource persons who will share their opinions are Gang Badoy, the founder of the �Dear Noynoy� Facebook Fanpage, Mae Paner aka Juana Change, an artist- director and political activist who supported PNoy during his candidacy, Ramon Casiple from the Institute for Political and Electoral Reform (IPER), and Rep. Mitos Magsaysay, who once called PNoy the �laziest, most stubborn, most inefficient president we�ve ever had.�

In his first year, did the President really treat the people like his boss? Was he able to guide the nation towards taking the straight path? Is the government free from corruption and the Filipinos, free from poverty?

Hear the thoughts of different Pinoys on PNoy�s crusade this Thursday, June 30, in �Krusada,� after �Bandila� on ABS-CBN.

Ford on LaBeouf: "Shia LaBeouf is an idiot!" - Harrison Ford

Veteran Hollywood actor Harrison Ford has called Shia LaBeouf an "idiot" for publicly bashing the latest Indiana Jones franchise where both of them starred.

Ford and LaBeouf worked together for 2008's franchise of the 1989 blockbuster film Indiana Jones titled "Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull" which grossed nearly $800 million worldwide.

But despite its blockbuster turnout, LaBeouf admitted he was disappointed with the revival, insisting he had "dropped the ball" and let devotees down.

"I feel like I dropped the ball on the legacy that people loved and cherished... You can blame it on the writer and you can blame it on (director) Steven (Spielberg). But the actor's job is to make it come alive and make it work, and I couldn't do it..." LaBeouf said, adding "We (Ford and LaBeouf) had major discussions. He wasn't happy with it either."

But on his recent interview with Details magazine, Ford belied what his co-star said and even called him a moron for his reaction: "I think he was an expletive idiot. As an actor, I think it's my obligation to support the film without making a complete a** of myself. Shia is ambitious, attentive, and talented - and he's learning how to deal with a situation which is very unique and difficult."

Albie Casi�o's Mom Speaks of Andi Eigenmann's Pregnancy

After Jake Ejercito's denial and request to spare him from Andi Eigenmann's pregnancy issue, all eyes are now set on young actor Albie Casi�o, the expectant mom's ex-boyfriend.

Andi (@andieigengirl) who is now 18 weeks pregnant, sent a direct message (DM) last night to @andreadeguzman which says:

"I'm happy so don't worry. Pls don't judge and assume stuff. It was all cleared by my mom earlier.I just hope people would stop assuming and say stuff. Again, I'm happy.. Let's all be! Goodnyt"

On her other twitter post, Andi said: "It just feels amazing how all of you are here for me."

But still, the pregnant young actress keeps mum on who really is the father of her unborn child.

Although Albie's mom, Mrs. Anna Kathrina Casi�o posted this message last night on her twitter account: "no ones denying nor confirming. Just saying he is not her 1st bf & I didnt hear ms jaclyn say Albie did u?", she still not confirming if Albie really is the culprit in Andi's pregnancy.

Transformers 3 Fails to Beat Transformers 2's First Day Box Office Gross

LOS ANGELES (AP) � The giant "Transformers" robots have shrunk a bit in the early going at the box office.

Distributor Paramount Pictures says "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" launched with $13.5 million domestically in screenings Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

That's less than the $16.6 million that the second of the three "Transformers" flicks, "Revenge of the Fallen," took in from midnight screenings alone two years ago. "Revenge of the Fallen" went on to top $400 million domestically and $800 million worldwide.

"Dark of the Moon" pulled in $5.5 million from screenings that started at 9 p.m. or later Tuesday at about 2,700 theaters. The movie added $8 million at about 3,000 cinemas in post-midnight showings overnight.

The comparison to "Revenge of the Fallen" is worse considering that 70 percent of revenues for "Dark of the Moon" came from 3-D screenings, which cost a few dollars more than 2-D showings. That means even fewer tickets sold than for early screenings of "Revenge of the Fallen," which played only in 2-D.

Still, "Dark of the Moon" is expected to do huge business the rest of the week and over the Fourth of July weekend, one of the year's busiest times at theaters.

Paramount has expanded the movie domestically to about 4,000 theaters.

Sneak Peek: Horrible Bosses

Character actors Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis join A-Listers Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx, in New Line Cinema's dark comedy "Horrible Bosses."

In the film, management candidate Nick Hendricks (Bateman) has been logging 12-hour days and eating everything his twisted supervisor Dave Harken (Spacey) dishes out, toward the promise of a well-earned promotion. But now he knows that's never going to happen.

Meanwhile, dental assistant Dale Arbus (Day) has been struggling to maintain his self-respect against the relentless X-rated advances of Dr. Julia Harris, D.D.S. (Aniston), when she suddenly turns up the heat.

And accountant Kurt Buckman (Sudeikis) has just learned that his company's corrupt new owner, Bobby Pellit (Farrell), is not only bent on ruining his career but plans to funnel toxic waste into an unsuspecting population.

What can you do when your boss is a psycho, a man-eater or a total tool?

Quitting is not an option. These monsters must be stopped. So, on the strength of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con whose street cred is priced on a sliding scale (Foxx), the guys devise a convoluted but foolproof plan to rid the world of their respective employers� permanently.

But even the best-laid plans are only as good as the brains behind them.

"Horrible Bosses" is directed by Seth Gordon and produced by Brett Ratner and Jay Stern, from a screenplay by Michael Markowitz and John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein, story by Markowitz.

Opening soon across the Philippines, "Horrible Bosses" is a New Line Cinema distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Toy Story 4 Movie Coming Soon Reveals Tom Hanks; Green Lantern 2 Follows Suit

Everybody will agree for sure when I say people really can't get enough of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the whole "Toy Story" gang. Now, it wouldn't also come as a surprise that the most famous computer-animated film which grossed more than one billion dollars in worldwide receipts would be seeing a sequel in development even if Pixar already said that the third installment would be the final in the franchise - well, that was before it hit billions worldwide .

And yes, good news! The movie's lead star Tom Hanks spill the beans and (accidentally?) told the BBC News that he's heard a Toy Story 4 is being worked on at the moment.

"I think there will be yeah." Hanks tells the BBC News. "Yeah, yeah, think they're working on it now. There you go."

Just last week, Pixar revealed that the studio will have its second release in 2013 but didn't specify whether it would be a sequel to their hits like Wall E, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles or an entirely new story.

Let's cross our fingers and hope it would be a new adventure for our favorite toy comrades.

Meanwhile, another two sequels are also rumored to be in the works: Warner Brothers has reportedly begun developing Green Lantern 2 and William Shatner has come out and said he won't be making a cameo in Star Trek 2. However, there's no confirmation yet from the producers of this hit films on whether there are plans to do another installments.

I think music is music, and genre - I mean, I know there's country music, there's rock music, but my music is different. My voice is not meant for any style. I just want to make music."

My lawyers are taking care of the various legal options that we have and handle the issue. It�s being taken care of as we speak,� he said.

Philippine Azkals vs Sri Lankan Brave Reds Game Result: 1-1 Draw

The Sri Lankan Brave Reds held the Philippine Azkals to a 1-1 draw as they frustrated the Nationals� attempt to score a historic first win in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Nationals had difficulties controlling the tempo in the first half against the Sri Lankans' tough defense.

The Sri Lankans scored the first goal of the game when Chathura Gunaratne�s free kick went through in the 40th minute.

Fortunately, Filipino-American Nate Burkey scored a header off a Chieffy Caligdong free kick on the 49th minute to equalize for the Azkals.

It was a highly physical game that was marred by diving on the part of the Sri Lankans.

The uneven grass of the Sugathadasa Stadium in Colombo also affected the Azkals' ball handling.

Several Azkals, including James Younghusband, Angel Guirado and Stephan Schrock, were given yellow cards for fouling their opponents.

The Azkals also had several scoring attempts through Phil Younghusband, Aly Borromeo and Chieffy Caligdong, and Ian Araneta.

The match was the first leg of a 2-leg home-and-away tie.

The next leg will take place at the historic Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila on July 3.

The Philippines needs to either win or hold Sri Lanka to a goalless draw in the second leg to advance to the next round.

Princess Diana Joins Kate Middleton on the Cover of Newsweek Magazine

NEW YORK (AP) � The latest Newsweek cover contains a ghostly sight: a computer-generated image of a stylish Princess Diana walking with her daughter-in-law Kate Middleton.

The article inside was written by Diana biographer and longtime provocateur Tina Brown. She's also Newsweek's editor-in-chief.

Diana was killed in a car accident in 1997 and would have turned 50 on Friday. In April, Middleton married Prince William, the oldest son of Diana and Prince Charles.

"What would she have been like?" Brown writes of Diana. "Still great-looking: that's a given." About the cover, a Los Angeles Times headline had a different question Tuesday: "Shocking, brilliant or just plain cheap?"

Raven-Symone Regrets Her New Sexy Figure

Raven-Symon� knows she's turning heads following her dramatic weight loss earlier this year, but it seems she didn't need the extra confidence boost.

"I find it funny that people now come up to me and say, 'Wow, you are absolutely gorgeous,'" the 25-year-old actress tells Vibe Magazine. "I'm like, 'I was beautiful before I lost weight. Egotistically speaking, I thought I was amazing.'"

The former Cosby Show kid and That's So Raven star first showed off a new, more svelte figure in January. Last month, Raven-Symon� told Wendy Williams the secret to her weight loss was stress reduction.

"I stopped stressing. You have to realize at 15, there was a whole entire show I had on my shoulders. It was a very big cast and crew and if you're sick for a day, people lose money and that's a problem," she said at the time. "[It wasn't] just over eating because I've actually been eating the same. I keep a little bit more smaller portions because I learned that your body has to get rid of that stress some way. Some people break-out, some people lose their hair, some lose weight, some people gain weight, my body just reacted a certain kind of way."

However, her weight loss won't be so easy to spot on her new comedy series, State of Georgia, which premieres this month. The show follows an aspiring actress who moves with her nerdy best friend to New York City in search of her big break. "Ironically, my character is supposed to be the size that I was before," she says. "So I have to wear thicker body pads on the show."

State of Georgia premieres Wednesday, June 29 at 8:30/7:30c on ABC Family.
