Con­tract stars of GMA Artist Cen­ter, the tal­ent-man­age­ment arm of GMA Net­work, rou­tinely visit the Sum­mit Me­dia of­fices to touch base with YES! Mag­a­zine and our on­line af­fil­i­ate, PEP.ph.

Past of­fice vis­i­tors in­cluded heart­throbs Ruru Madrid, Phy­tos Ramirez, Rocco Na­cino, Mike Tan, and Ben­jamin Alves; teen stars Bea Binene and Bianca Umali; and new­bies Klea Pineda, Arra San Agustin, Inah de Be­len, and Lind­say de Vera.

Then came the turn of hunks Jak Roberto and Addy Raj, fol­lowed by that of ver­sa­tile ac­tresses LJ Reyes, Chynna Or­taleza, and Yasmien Kurdi. gma stars’ of­fice vis­its cy­ber­gate tower 3 pi­o­neer st., man­daluy­ong city au­gust 23, 2017 (jak & addy) septem­ber 20, 2017 (chynna, yasmien & lj) For PEP.ph, Addy Raj (left) and Jak Roberto did an in­ter­view, a game, and a sto­ry­telling ses­sion on video.

In the in­ter­view, Jak an­swered ques­tions about his ru­mored ro­mance with Bar­bie Forteza, who played his and Addy’s lead­ing lady in the rom­com se­ries Meant To Be. “Hindi namin pinag-uusapan,” Jak said of Bar­bie. “Basta, ang to­too niyan, mas madalas kasi kam­ing tawanan lang nang tawanan… Para kam­ing pa-rom­com.”

Addy, on the other hand, re­called a few weird ex­pe­ri­ences that have come his way since his stint in Meant To Be: “Fans at my home, knock­ing on my door. In the mall, some ran­dom girl will just come and kiss me, and run away. Ha­haha!”

The two hand­some ac­tors played the game called “Don’t Laugh Chal­lenge,” where they cracked jokes with a straight face. Jak won. The sto­ry­telling ses­sion turned out to be a chal­lenge, too, as they read ex­cerpts from the clas­sic chil­dren’s sto­ries The Ugly Duck­ling (for Jack) and The Three Lit­tle Pigs (for Addy) us­ing their sex­i­est voice. Addy won. His sexy reading can be viewed on PEP.ph. Off­screen, Chynna Or­taleza, Yasmien Kurdi, and LJ Reyes (L-R) are devoted moth­ers. Chynna and her hus­band, ac­tor-mu­si­cian Kean Cipri­ano, have a one-year-old daugh­ter named Stellar. In­spired by their ex­pe­ri­ences as new par­ents, the cou­ple have part­nered with fel­low first-timers to put up Unna Cares, a line of baby prod­ucts that are sold on its web­site.

LJ’s ex­pe­ri­ences as a sin­gle work­ing mom to seven-year-old Aki, whose fa­ther is ac­tor Paulo Avelino, like­wise mo­ti­vated her to cre­ate the phone app Smart Mommy App (MApp). MApp pro­vides info from first aid to find­ing child-friendly and fam­ily-ori­ented es­tab­lish­ments and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Yasmien plans to have an­other child, some­thing re­quested by her daugh­ter Aye­sha Zara, who is turn­ing five on Novem­ber 22. “Baby sis­ter daw,” Yasmien said of Aye­sha’s re­quest. “Pero ako, kahit ano, mapa-boy or mapa-girl. Kung girl, okey lang, kasi na­ga­gawa din na­man ng girls la­hat ng na­ga­gawa ng mga lalake ngayon. Kung boy, okey din, kasi wala pa kam­ing boy.”

The 28-year ac­tress and her pilot-hus­band, Rey Sold­ev­illa Jr., have been mar­ried for nearly six years.
