Phil Younghusband and Angel Locsin

Phil Younghusband admitted that he and actress Angel Locsin have gone out together, but says, "We haven't done any formal date yet." It may be recalled that the English-Filipino footballer first asked Angel out for Valentine's Day on Twitter. This post so created a buzz, it became entertainment headline the following day.

In an interview with the 23-year-old athlete, who was launched as the newest endorser of Hush Puppies this afternoon, March 2, at the Resorts World Manila in Pasay City, he related that he and Angel have gone out a couple of times already.
"One time we went to the firing range. Another time with friends and family. We haven't really been out in public," Phil said.

Sarah G. finally breaks her silence!

When the story of a love triangle among young starsSarah Geronimo, Rayver Cruz, and Cristine Reyesmade headlines last year, there was one person who chose not to speak about the issue—Sarah. But this March, she finally breaks her silence as she grants an exclusive interview to YES! magazine, revealing the details of her very first real heartbreak.

YES! pieces the tale together by speaking to all of the people who played both major and minor parts in the entire story. The 39-page article airs the sides of Sarah's mom Mommy Divine, her close friends Sharon Cuneta, Judy Ann Santos,and Beth Tamayo, personal assistant Anna Dasig, loveteam partner John Lloyd Cruz, Cristine, Rayver, and Sarah herself.

A four-hour interview with Mommy Divine in the Geronimo household reveals her devotion to her family, a devotion that many have criticized as overprotectiveness. Mommy Divine admits that she does not think Sarah is ready to entertain suitors.

"Vocal naman ako na hindi ko naman pinagbabawalan ang anak ko totally. But for now,sabi ko, hindi pa dapat, kasi nakikita kong iba siya sa mga kaedad niya na talagangexposed, na alam na nila kung paano paikot-ikot, kung paano sumuong sa ganoong relasyon at kung paano lumabas. 'Yong anak ko, hindi, e."

She says that Sarah is too naïve, too trusting, and thus, requires her guidance.

"Sa nakikita ko sa kanya, hindi siya talaga puwedeng pabayaang mag-isa. 'Yon ang nakikita ko kung bakit palagi ko siyang ginagabayan sa ngayon," she says. She also tells YES! about her belief that God will provide the right partner for her daughter, and that it is through her, as Sarah's mother, that His will shall be revealed.
