Tom Brady Opens Up About His Mother’s Breast Cancer Battle: “She’s Been So Positive”

Tom Brady wants fans to know that his mom, Galynn, is doing “really well” following her breast cancer diagnosis two years ago. The New England Patriots quarterback opened up to People magazine about how the news affected his family. “I think any family that has dealt with cancer realizes the challenge it is not only at that moment, but as it continues to be,” Tom shared.

Although Galynn was unable to attend many of his games during the 2016 NFL season, she was on hand to witness her son defeat the Atlanta Falcons in the 2017 Super Bowl. “I think she’s got so much appreciation for the people who have supported her,” Tom continued. “She’s such a wonderful woman and she’s been so positive through it all and we’ve been so proud of her.”

Earlier this year, Tom uploaded a sweet photo of Galynn and his adorable family posing together on the field ahead of the 2018 Super Bowl where the Patriots took on the Philadelphia Eagles, eventually losing the championship.

No, You’re Not the Only One Who’s Crushing on Oscar From On My Block

Every now and then you come across a TV character who you know you’re not supposed to be attracted to – they’re rude, they’re manipulative, they’re dangerous, they’re “the bad guy” – but you just can’t help yourself. It’s why you find Jamie Dornan’s serial killer character in The Fall irresistible sometimes (it’s OK! Just admit it!) and why you crush so hard on Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones despite his, um, sister problem. Well, we have another addition to the problematic crushes list: On My Block‘s Oscar “Spooky” Diaz.

Netflix’s coming-of-age comedy has quickly become one of our favorites thanks to the diverse cast, the incredible soundtrack, and that truly shocking finale moment, but we also can’t deny that we have a soft spot for Cesar’s older brother, Oscar. The character is a gang leader in their LA neighborhood who just got out of prison and has no problem forcing Cesar to join up, ordering him to skip school to make drug deals. Later he even hands Cesar a gun and tells him to take care of some business. But there’s also a really sweet, protective side to Oscar that we see in “Chapter 8.” He makes it clear that although he’s rough around the edges, his number one priority has always been keeping his little brother alive.

*cue the slightly guilty swooning*

If your not-so-secret Oscar obsession has you wondering about the actor who plays him, look no further than Julio Macias! To be totally honest, we did a double take when we saw his IRL photo. Without all the neck tattoos and Oscar’s shaved head, Macias looks totally different (albeit still ridiculously attractive).

Before appearing in On My Block, he scored a part in the TV miniseries La Vida es Como el Cine as well as Game Shakers, Jane the Virgin, and a number of film shorts. Just because we’re still waiting for confirmation that On My Block will return for season two (c’mon, Netflix, we all need more Oscar in our lives), that doesn’t mean Macias has to be out of your life completely. You can see him next in the thriller The Last Boat to Alcatraz, which is due out sometime this year, or catch up on his life via Instagram.

“Cathy Garcia-Molina on retiring: ‘It’s time that I serve my children’”


Sa Tonight with Boy Abunda, binigyang linaw ni direk Cathy Garcia-Molina ang issue tungkol sa pagre-retire niya. Ani Direk, “Yes, I am.”

Paliwanag niya, “Matagal na actually ‘to. Every time I make films and every time that I make people happy, alam ko that there are two children that are not. Just because I am not with them and these are the growing years of my kids. Especially after my husband left, parang ako na lang ang meron sila, hindi pa ako makapag-stay with them.” 

Dagdag pa ni direk Cathy, hindi niya nagawang mag-focus sa mga anak dahil isa siyang single mom. “Being a single mom it was hard, because the kind of life that I want to give them. The kind of schools I want to send them to, it needed me to earn more. Hindi ko maiwan ang trabaho ko.”

Pero may nangyari daw kamakailan lang na lalong nag-udyok sa kanya na iwan muna ang paggawa niya ng pelikula. “But I know things are happening to my children. Two months ago… may nangyayari sa anak ko. Right away, I went to kina Direk Olive (Lamasan) kasi I wanted to resign…”

Nagkataon din daw na supportive ngayon ang boyfriend niya. “Tapos nagkataon yung boyfriend ko po ngayon, parang mas gusto talaga niya na tutukan ko na lang yung mga anak ko and he’s willing to work for us…”

Baka ito na rin daw ang pagkakataon na matupad ni direk Cathy ang pangarap niya. “E ang dream ko di ba Tito Boy maging mother and maging housewife, which I have never realized. I’m hoping to realize that dream. Magti-teenager na ang mga anak ko, they need me.” 

Pagtatapos ni direk, “Sabi ko nga 25 years of my life para sa show business, 24 years for ABS-CBN. Siguro tama na yun. More than half of my life I have served, it’s time that I serve my children.” 

Bago tuluyang magretiro si direk Cathy, gagawa daw siya ng pelikula with KathNiel at ang huli ay ang kay Piolo Pascual na naipangako na niya noon pa kay Piolo.

“Cathy Garcia-Molina to John Lloyd Cruz: ‘Asan ka na ba? I miss you’”


Sa Tonight with Boy Abunda, sumabak si direk Cathy-Garcia Molina sa segment na “name that Kapamilya star” at sinagot ang mga tanong tungkol sa mga artistang nakatrabaho na niya.

Ayon sa kanya, si Bea Alonzo ang Kapamilya star na laging on time. Si John Lloyd Cruz naman ang nakakakuha ng eksena ng isang take lang. Mensahe pa niya para kay John Lloyd, “I miss you Lloydie!”

Si Daniel Padilla diumano ang artista na kaugali niya at si Sarah Geronimo naman ang parating may bisita sa set. “Parents niya, si Mommy Divine.”

Pinaka-hindi naman napagalitan ni direk si Kathryn Bernardo. ”Hardly.” At si Gerald Anderson ang isa sa mga artista na hindi niya gusto bago niya nakatrabaho. “Ayoko kasi siya e. Hindi ako nagagalingan, hindi ako napupogian. Lahat yun kinain ko. Isa pala siyang pogi inside out at napakagaling.”

Si Lloydie naman ang artista “who changed (her) life,” at siya rin ang nakatampuhan ni direk Cathy. Si DJ at Lloydie ang mga artisa na totoong nagpakilig sa kanya.

Para kay direk, si DJ ang pinaka-sexy na Kapamilya star at ang artista naman na namimiss na niya ay si Lloydie. “Literal na tanong asan ka na ba? I miss you.”

“EXCLUSIVE: Edgar Allan Guzman says he remains friend with ex-girlfriend Shaira Mae dela Cruz”


Dalawang linggong nagbakasyon sa Amerika ang aktor na si Edgar Allan Guzman kasama ang dating girlfriend na si Shaira Mae dela Cruz.

Giit ni EA, magkaibigan na lang sila ngayon ni Shaira at wala naman siyang nakikitang masama kung magkasama man sila sa Amerika.

“Matagal na kasing naka-book yon, so hindi sinadya. I mean, before talagang ano, pero ngayon kasi, kumbaga ako, gusto ko lang ding huminga, gusto ko lang ding magbakasyon kaya tinuloy ko.

“So para sa akin, kung magkasama man kami don, wala namang malisya yon. Wala naman akong ano sa sasabihin ng iba, so siguro na misinterpret lang na may kasama, pero ano yon, matagal nang naka-book yon.

“Saka hindi lang naman kaming dalawa yong nagbakasyon don, marami kami,” dire-diretsong paliwanag ni EA sa PUSH.

Iginiit din niya na wala na talaga silang relasyon ng dalaga.

“Hindi na. Wala na. Pero lahat naman ng tao puwedeng maging magkaibigan, eh, di ba? Hindi naman lahat pag sinabi mong wala na, eh, wala na ring communication. Lahat naman puwedeng maging magkaibigan.

“Naniniwala kasi ako na kahit ex mo, puwede mong maging friends. Kasi nasa isang magkarelasyon naman yon, kung itutuloy niya as friend o itutuloy niyo as wala na talaga,” sambit niya.

Na-realize din daw nila ni Shaira ngayon na marami silang nasayang na pagkakataon noon dahil sa maagang pakikipagrelasyon.

Ani Edgar, “Yon nga yung reason din kung bakit, kasi tumatanda na kami, so dati bata, akala namin ganito. So this time, mas ano kami, mas matured kami kung paano hahawakan yung sarili namin. Give time to ourselves and to our work para magawa namin yung mga hindi namin nagawa before,” saad pa niya.

Samantala, ikinatuwa ni EA ang natanggap niyang nominasyon sa Eddys Awards.

“Sana manalo. Hehehe! Pero kung hindi, okey din lang naman. Sabi ko nga sa IG stories ko, ang maging nominado pa lamang ay karangalan na, so okey na yon. Masaya na ako do’n,” huling pahayag ni Edgar Allan sa PUSH.
