#ShowbizExpoTrending: Jessy Mendiola, My Husband's Lover and Claudine Baretto

Jessy Mendiola Launches as Maria Mercedes

It is a dream come true for actress Jessy Mendiola to take on the role of Maria Mercedes, originally played by Mexican superstar Thalia in the series of the same name.

"Pwede ko na sabihin, ang tagal kong itinago ito - ako si Maria Mercedes," Mendiola said in a press conference on Wednesday. "Isa talaga si Maria Mercedes sa dream roles ko kaya excited ako para sa project na itoHanggang ngayon ay hindi ako makapaniwala na gagampanan ko ang isang napakaganda at iconic character na talaga namang minahal ng maraming Filipino,"

"Sobra akong surprised kaya noong nalaman ko na ako si Maria Mercedes, naging emosyonal ako. Pangarap kong maging siya. Tapos pinakanta pa sa akin 'yung theme song. Ang saya ko na pinagkakatiwalaan pa din ako ngayon," she added.

Joining her in the upcoming series are Jake Cuenca, Jason Abalos, Vina Morales, Dominic Ochoa, Nadia Montenegro and Vivian Velez. It will be directed by Rechie del Carmen.


Claudine Barretto Returns to ABS-CBN,
Set to Star in Two Movies

Claudine Barretto is set to make her big showbiz comeback.

According to a report by veteran showbiz reporter Mario Dumaual on ABS-CBNNews.com, two film projects are reportedy lined up for Claudine.

The 33-year-old actress is being offered to star in two movies with one possibly marking her reunion with the Kapamilya network.

Claudine's first movie comeback project is a romance-drama entitled "Eternally" under the film production outfit of Viva Entertainment where she is under contract. 

The other project, which is also a dramatic film, is a proposed co-production with ABS-CBN's film production outfit Star Cinema and Viva Films.


Dennis Trillo Strong Contender for
Best Actress Award for "My Husband's Lover"

Yes, you read it right, "Best Actress" award for Dennis Trillo.

There's no denying that more and more viewers are getting hooked on GMA's controversial primetime series, "My Husband's Lover" which stars Dennis alongside with Carla Abellana and new kapuso Tom Rodriguez.

The said series is the subject of conversations not only among the Network's primary audience -- the mass market - but also among the Louis Vuitton carrying socialites in Eastwood and The Fort.

A number of netizens have proposed online that Dennis Trillo be given an acting award but which one: Best Actor or Best Actress?

That may be a subject of a long debate but viewers are one in praising the actor's convincing portrayal of Eric, an openly gay man who had had an affair with Vincent (Tom Rodriguez), who is a closet bisexual. 

Eric had to migrate to the United States and so he and Vincent split up. After a few years, Eric returned to the Philippines with the hope of rekindling the old flame with Vincent. But he got the shock of his life when he learned that Vincent is already married to a woman named "Lally."

How will Vincent, Eric and Lally sort out their "It's Complicated" statuses? That remains to be seen.

Don't miss "My Husband's Lover" from Monday to Friday, after "Mundo Mo'y Akin" (approx. 9:30pm) on GMA Telebabad.
