Artist Circle Celebrates 10th Anniversary : Honored Loyal Artists with 'Dekada Award'

ISANG grandiosong 10th Anniversary party ng Artist Circle ang naganap noong May 11, 2022 sa bonggang Aquila Crystal Tagaytay Events Place sa Tagaytay City.

Pag-aari ito ng newest artist ng Artist Circle si Tei Endencia, na isang kilalang event specialist. 

Ayon sa founder/manager na si Rams David, na-meet niya si Tei dahil kay Wilma Doesnt na isa rin sa kanyang alaga.


“Bilang ang galing nilang mag-design ng event, e. Starting next month, all of the booking, all of the arrangement na dadaanan ng Aquila will go through Artist Circle. so we’ll be his satellite office in Quezon City.”

Idea raw ni Tei na gawin nila ang ballroom party para nga sa 10th anniversary ng Artist Circle.

“Sabi niya, 'Tito Rams, let’s do something big.' And sakto na 10th anniversary ng Artist Circle. At nabuo ito, two weeks ago lang. That’s why I’m grateful kay Tei Endencia, the MasTEIpiece for inviting us over.

“So, it’s an expansion of my office, for booking na makakatulong din sa mga artista natin.”


Dagdag pa niya, "at kung kailangan ang expertise niya sa pagde-design ng party, like Fairy Tale o Harry Potter or Phantom of the Opera, maaasahan sa pagde-design si Tei.

"And since he owns the venue, doon na nga namin ginawa ang 10th anniversary party."

Nagdatingan naman halos lang ng mga artists ng Artist Circle at guests na pawang nakasuot ng formal gowns and suits na angkop sa sa "ballroom" theme ng party, na kung saan lumakad sila sa red carpet at nakaroon ng photo op, at nag-enjoy sa sinerve na bonggang dinner. 

“We established it 2012, so sampung taon na siya at ang artists natin ay more or less ay nasa 70 na," kuwento ni Rams.

"So, bakit siya 70, alam n'yo naman ang mga hawak ko are the character actors and actresses of different field.  Before siya naging Artist Circle, it’s House of Characters, dahil marami tayong hawak na artists na pwede sa iba't-ibang supporting roles na kailangan lalo na sa mga teleserye."

Nagsimula nga ang Artist Circle sa pagma-manage ng primera klase at premyadong aktres tulad nina Celia Rodriguez,  Chanda Romero, Odette Khan at Sheryl Cruz, at sa 10 years dumami na sila.

Sa ginanap na 10th anniversary ng Artist Circle, pinarangalan din ni Rams ang mga artistang nakasama nila ten years ago at kung nabubuhay lang si German 'Kuya Germs' Moreno ay kasama rin siya sa list.


Kasama sa labing anim na nakatanggap ng 'Dekada Award.' sina Sheryl Cruz, Chanda Romero, Odette Khan, Mosang, Mel Kimura, Shyr Valdez, Dang Cruz, Ces Quesada, Jet Rai, Andrew Schimmer, Robert Correa, Marlon Mance, Rico Robles, Lorenz Martinez, Mike Magat, at Celia Rodriguez.

Mas nakilala si Rams David bilang mahusay na program manager sa mga shows ng GMA-7 at noong 2011 ay naging president siya ng Triple A (All Access to the Artists) ni Mr. Antonio P. Tuviera at nag-manage ng career nina Marian Rivera at Maine Mendoza, na labis niyang ikinatutuwa sa kasikatang tinatamasa ng dalawang big stars ng GMA-7.

Hindi naman naging madali pa kay Rams na lisanin ang Triple A para personal na matutukan ang kanyang sariling management company.

“Nagpaalam naman ako nang maayos at napakabait naman ni Chairman na pinayagan ako," say pa ng butihing manager.


Kabilang nga sa mga bagong mina-manage ng Artist Circle ay si Asiana na daughter ng model and actress na si Wilma. 

Ang ilan pa sa mga artists nina Rams ay sina Jelia Andres, Jopay Paguia at Joshua Zamora, at apat pang Sexbomb Dancers na sina Mia Pangyarihan, Mhyca Bautista, Cheche Tolentino, at Aira Bermudez.  

Kabilang din sa mga talents sina Krissy Achino, ang magkapatid na Mike at Carlos Agassi, Mico Aytona, BJ "Tolits" Forbes, Inday Garutay, Kiks Ferrer, at Christian Antolin na isa sa tinanghal na Stars of the Night kasama sina Jelai, Jopay at Carlos.

At sa pagpasok ng kanilang ika-11 taon, asahan na mas maraming artists ang madadagdag sa Artist Circle na kung saan meron na rin silang mga kabataan na dini-discover na puwede nilang iko-manage sa Sparkle GMA Artist Center, kung mabibigyan ng pagkakataon.

Congrats Artist Circle, cheers to more decades in the entertainment industry!

GMA Network's ‘Legal Wives’ Now Streaming on Netflix Philippines

GMA Network's top-rating family drama series ‘Legal Wives' is set to captivate the hearts of more viewers as it debuts on Netflix Philippines.

The groundbreaking program, which aired in July last year, is the 7th GMA content on the popular video streaming platform. It joins the growing list of Kapuso shows and movie that viewers can binge watch on Netflix Philippines including ‘Descendants of the Sun,’ ‘I Can See You,’ ‘Love of my Life,’ ‘ Owe My Love,’ ‘Heartful Café,’ and ‘Family History.’

The original series features a casting coup top-billed by no less than Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo as Ismael Makadatu, an honorable man from a well-off Mranaw family who will equally love three women out of obligation, dedication, and compassion; Alice Dixson as Amirah Alonte, the virtuous and pious daughter of a sultan and Ismael's first wife; Andrea Torres as Diane San Luis, Ismael’s second wife who is a feisty modern Catholic woman who will go to great lengths to fight for herself and Ismael's love; Bianca Umali as Farrah Valeandong, a smart and innocent lady who becomes Ismael's third wife in hopes of saving her family's reputation.


Set in Lanao Del Sur, the story begins with a Mranaw man named Ismael (Dennis) from the affluent and noble family of Makadatu. Although a devout Muslim and a muezzin (sever of the mosque), Ismael falls for Diane (Andrea), a dentist who is part of the Catholic minority in their province, and whom he keeps from his family as she is considered a non-believer. 

In a sudden turn of events, Ismael gets entangled in a clan feud which leads to his marriage with his brother's widow, Amirah (Alice). Ismael follows the disheartened Diane in Manila and tries to woo her unbeknownst to his parents. Just when the two are starting to build a happy marriage, Ismael is met with another conflict. Upon his return to their province, his friend - who he is greatly indebted to - seeks his help in saving their family's reputation by marrying Farrah (Bianca), his daughter who is involved in a scandal. 


How will Ismael's three wives deal with each other’s socio-cultural differences along with the idea of them sharing one husband? Is the idea of a man loving more than just one woman, equally and all at the same time, really possible?   

All scenes, creative processes, and executions for the series are with the guidance of Muslim Consultants Sohaimen AgalImam Mohammad MiphantaoImam Abu amen Abdullah, and Ustadh Alinor Pansar; Islamic Script Editor Salem Guimba; and Costume and Muslim Language Consultant Princess Nurfathma Egypa Balindong
Don't miss the premiere of ‘Legal Wives' - under the helm of Zig Dulay - now streaming on Netflix Philippines.

Celebrating the unsung, everyday heroes in every Filipino: JANE DE LEON, the Newest Ambassador for Santé Barley and Daily-C

AMID the global crisis, Filipinos had seen the courage and strength of frontline workers – our doctors, nurses, grocery cashiers, public transportation drivers, and many more.

We also saw people stepping up for others  especially their families, friends, or those vulnerable,  immunocompromised loved ones safe from COVID 19. And yes, no matter how small out actions are, it reflects the heroes in all of us.

To honor the unsung heroes in every Filipino, Santé, a premier natural and organic health and wellness product and services provider, welcomes, today, Jane De Leon as the newest ambassador for Santé Barley and Daily-C.

According to Joey Marcelo, chief executive officer of Santé, “More than all the characters that Jane De Leon portrays in her movies and teleseryes we know that she is always kind and compassionate and uses her strength and influence to help others. And because it is our commitment to helping everyone live better lives, Jane perfectly embodies what Santé is all about."

He added, "She represents the hardworking and dedicated Filipinos who have risen to become heroes of their families, especially amid these uncertain times.” 

However, unlike any other superheroes in television and movies, everyday heroes need to strengthen their immune systems with the right supplements, good exercise, and diet to stay away from sicknesses, enabling them to live more and do more for their loved ones. As health is their primary source of power, this is where Santè Barley and Daily C come in to help empower the revolution of the modern-day heroes in every Filipino.

Santé Barley, the company’s flagship product, is made of barley grass young age and turned into powder and capsule forms. It is composed of pure organic barley grass rich in vitamins and minerals that help to detoxify the body, lower bad cholesterol, aid digestive health, deliver a good number of antioxidants, assist wound healing, bone formation, and many more.

A glass or capsule of Santé Barley fortifies the body with Vitamin C, zinc, calcium, amino acids, magnesium, iron, B-vitamins, and carotenoids, which are essential to givingbthe immune system an extra boost. The healthy goodness of Santé Barley™ is certified organic by New Zealand’s renowned organic produce and products organization, BioGro.

Daily-C, on the other hand, is ascorbic acid neutralized with sodium. It has three variants, including Daily-C 500mg, Daily-C 750mg, and Daily-C Plus, sodium ascorbate fortified with zinc to provide an extra level of protection. With a pH range of 7.0 to 8.0, all variants are gentler on the stomach and safe for daily consumption.

Vitamin C helps reinforce the immune system, decreases Vitamin C deficiency, and aids in the body’s iron absorption, collagen formation, and wound healing. The Daily-C variations come in vegetable capsules that make it ideal for those living the vegetarian lifestyle.


“Before we can become heroes for others, we need to ensure that we are strong and healthy. I have always considered health and wellness very important, especially now that we face a global health crisis. I am very grateful to be a part of the Santé family. 

"As the new brand ambassador of Santé Barley TM and Daily-C, I hope that I can encourage more Filipinos to take care of their health so that they can take good care, even more, of their families and loved ones,” said De Leon.

Santé Barley, Daily-C, and other Santé products are organic health and wellness products offered by Santé, known for developing a comprehensive selection of everyday barley-based products. They are designed to improve people’s quality of life to live more and do more.

Santé is one of the leading global manufacturers of certified barley grass grown and harvested from New Zealand.
