We got to work with Heart Evangelista last March for GMA Network. We went to her office in Quezon City to shoot an ‘office tour’ plus several other quirky things to let people know more about this lovely and multitalented woman. The result was the online content that were launched via the social media platforms of GMA Network like Facebook and Instagram, and we officially named the project called “GMA Artistakeover”.
What you will watch below contain a side of Heart that you rarely get to see in soap operas that she stars in or her official Instagram page. Her showbiz BFF, Lovi Poe, will also make an appearance here to send her warmest regards to GMA’s Artist of the Month for March.
Meanwhile, for this April, we will give a warm Kapuso welcome to Derek Ramsay who is the Artist of the Month!
It’s a show that airs on GMA News TV every Saturday night with Solenn Heussaff and Rhian Ramos as the hosts. The show is basically where we see the fresh, fun and fab adventures of Solenn and Rhian. Food tasting, and a whole lot more with the girls!
I have been with TASTE BUDDIES as a writer for almost six years now. It started with Solenn and Isabelle Daza, aka Belle, as the hosts back in its early years. But when Belle decided to move to the rival TV network, ABS-CBN, we were down with only Solenn. So who will be her Taste Buddy? Luckily, Iya Villania, who was a new GMA talent that year after she switched networks, was available to do the part.
I wrote for Taste Buddies, hosted by Solenn Heussaff & Rhian Ramos.
Just like with Belle, Iya shared a lot of exciting experiences with Solenn. From the foodie adventures to the physical challenges that only strengthened their relationship from acquaintance to friends.
And then the whole preggy situation came: Iya got pregnant with her first child with hubby, Drew Arellano. And we were back to the search of a new host. This is where Rhian came along.
I truly have a great time on the show. Everybody is fun to work with: from the hosts to the staff. And I have been learning a lot from them. Who, also, wouldn’t enjoy a show that features a lot of food (!!) in it: new food concepts, trending dining experiences, and a whole bunch of fun adventures in it? Like trying the Trapeze school in BGC, challenging celebrity guests like Bea Binene and Joemarie Nielsen to different physical activities in Camp N in Nuvali, or a fashionista face-off with Max Collins. And these are just a few!
Will be happy to write my experience with the team. So from this day onwards, let me share with you my adventures with… TASTE BUDDIES!
