NAGDEDMAHAN ang dating mag-on na sina Carla Humphries and Janus del Prado.

May katagalan na rin namang nag-split sina Carla and Janus after being together for more than a year. Both apparently has moved on at akala namin, the separation was amicable.

Ang gaganda nga ng sinabi ni Carla about Janus dahil napakarami raw nitong natutunan sa first boyfriend who is so deep thinking. Kaso habang nagbi-break si Carla sa labas ng restaurant sa ABS CBN, ang Cheapstakes, napadaan si Janus together with former ABS Star Magic twin Dominic and Felix Roco, nagdaanan lang ang dalawa.

Biniru-biro pa namin both na kung bakit hindi sila nagpansinan, lumayo na lang si Janus so forced to say hi and goodbye lang ang kambal kay Carla para sundan agad si Janus.

Puro tawa naman si Carla na nagsabing nag hello daw siya na hindi namin napansin so biro namin sa kaniya, isyu ito. Single pa rin ngayon si Carla although she has a new love team, model turned actor Victor Basa at kalu-launch pa lang sa kanila sa nag pilot na Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv kung saan they played beaus as Brenda and Stick.

Kami namang si gaga, nakalimutan naming itanong kay Victor kung ano ang naging reaction niya about that dedmahan.

Medyo mahiyain pa si Victor Basa, ang talent ng Star Magic na kasama sa cast ng Star Magic Present Abt Ur Luv, na napapanood every Saturday.

Matipid at seryoso siyang sumagot sa mga tanong na akala pa nga namin at first, wala siya sa mood.

“Hindi po, inantok po kasi ako sa kinain kong dessert,” rason niya.

Si Victor ang latest ka-loveteam ni Carla Humphries sa Star Magic Presents...

Aniya, ngayon lang siya nagkaroon ng masasabing kapareha dahil dati, ka-triangle niya sina Luis Manzano at Toni Gonzaga sa Crazy for You.

Three weeks pa lang daw silang nagkakakilanlan ni Carla. Sa taping lang sila nagkakilala, kaya nasa getting-to-know-each other stage pa lang sila.

He finds Carla sweet, pretty at mabait. Pero too early to tell pa raw kung magiging for real din ang kanilang loveteam.

This early, may intriga na agad kay Victor at ito ay ang tsismis na pinag-aagawan siya nina Carla at Denise Laurel sa paghahatid-sundo sa kanya.

“Hindi naman po ganu’n. Once lang po ako nakisakay sa kotse ni Carla at kasama rin namin si Denise dahil nagsimba kami nu’n. Magkalapit lang kasi ang bahay namin ni Carla,” paliwanag niya.

Aware rin siya na pinagpipistahan siya sa Internet at sinasabing gay siya.

“Ako mismo ang nakabasa nu’n. Nagulat po ako, pero ’di naman po totoo. Hindi po ako gay,” aniya.

Si Victor ay isa sa ASAP ’06 Cover Boys. Kasama rin siya sa magtatapos nang Crazy for You and soon, sa Walang Kapalit.

Victor Basa hatid-sundo ng dalawang young actresses?
Victor Basa reportedly gets free rides from his two female co-stars.

Newcomer Victor Basa is one lucky guy. Hatid-sundo raw kasi ang drama niya sa dalawa niyang kasama sa isang show sa ABS-CBN.

We're referring to Denise Laurel and Carla Humphries na co-stars niya sa Star Magic Presents: Abt Ur Luv.

At the moment, wala pang kotse si Victor. Nagmagandang-loob naman daw si Denise na sunduin siya't ihatid sa taping para maging convenient siya sa pagre-report sa location nila.

Hindi naman daw nagpatalbog si Carla at nag-volunteer din itong sunduin at ihatid ang newcomer sa taping nila. Hindi nga lang namin alam kung aware sina Denise at Carla na dalawa silang nagmamagandang-loob kay Victor.

So, why are they doing this? Pareho raw kasing crush ng dalawang young stars si Victor.

Next month daw ay bibili na ng second-hand car ang actor-model. It would be interesting to know kung sino ang ihahatid at susunduin niya sa dalawa.

Aside from Abt Ur Luv, regular ding napapanood si Victor sa Sunday musical variety program ng Dos na ASAP ‘06.

All About Carla

Ironically, it was her role in Bituing Walang Ningning that made 18-year-old Carla Humphries’ star shine even brighter. 'I’m very thankful for the role,' says Carla, who played Rita, the younger sister of the series’ antagonist, Lavinia Arguelles (Angelika dela Cruz).

Veteran actress Amy Austria played their mother Barbara. Of the trio, Carla was not only the youngest; she was also the least experienced. Bituing Walang Ningning was her first regular show, and the biggest break so far of her career.

At first, Carla was intimidated by the idea of working with them, especially Amy. Before shooting their scenes together, Carla would take a few minutes to pray so she’d be less nervous when it was time to face the cameras.

What she found out surprised her. “They very warm and very good to me. Tita Amy, especially, would really guide me when it came to acting. Everyone knows she’s this really great actress, but she’s so down-to-earth. So in my scenes with them, I really gave my best so I wouldn’t have reason to be ashamed of myself.”

Carla, who is of French, American and Filipino descent (her father is French-American, while her mother is a full-blooded Filipina from Batangas) has also starred in Star Magic Presents and the reality teen dating show Qpids, where she was paired with Janus del Prado, who also played her love interest in Bituing Walang Ningning. Now, she is one of the 19 young stars featured in ABS-CBN’s new youth-oriented show Abt Ur Luv.

Carla in Abt Ur Luv - Epi 01

Episode Title: Isang Bagong Sabado

The pilot episode of Abt Ur Luv introduced the characters of the show, and set the stage for future plot lines.

This blog entry summarizes scenes where Carla's character, Brenda, appears.

Neri arrives in Manila by boat and is met by Brenda and Josh.

On the way back home from the pier, Brenda is busy talking on the phone and almost runs over Rickson at the street of their subdivision.

Hillary enters the house and informs Brenda that Yaya Rosing has left. The two girls are almost hysterical as they cannot imagine what life would be like without their Yaya.

When Brenda complains about losing their Yaya, Brenda's mother says she had to let Yaya Rosing go because their family is in financial trouble, and with Neri now staying with them, she can't afford the additional expenses.

Brenda and her mom realize that Neri is missing. Brenda's mother orders her to look for Neri.

Brenda arrives at Gwen's house with Gizelle and Hillary in tow, and asks her to help look for Neri.

Their attempts to search for Neri are unsuccessful, and Brenda becomes more worried and frustrated.

At the gym, Brenda working out while she's still upset by the day's events. Stick is trying to calm her down when Brenda accidentally tells him that she wants their relationship to be official. Brenda tries to take it back because "the moment is not perfect" but Stick kisses her and tells her that the moment is perfect. Mich sees the two of them hug, and angrily leaves.

Brenda and Stick are walking home when they finally see Neri with Gens and Celine. Neri apologizes for going missing, while Celine promises to tell Brenda the entire 'long story'.

At Aling Tetay's despedida dinner, Stick reclaims the P1000 that Web, Rickson, and Josh extorted from him.

Stick shares a tender moment with Brenda as they exchange "I love you"s and bid each other goodnight, while Neri looks on and writes in her journal.

Blue surprises Stick by suddenly showing up to stay with him.

'Abt Ur Luv' Character Profiles

ABS-CBN's website has published a feature article on the characters of Abt Ur Luv.

Click here for the full article.

The character write-up for BRENDA reads:

Carla Humphries is Brenda, Neri’s rich and pampered cousin. She’s used to a wealthy lifestyle and finds it hard to adjust when their family business starts having financial trouble. She resents having Neri around, finding her cousin very uncouth.

The characters that appear to be related directly to BRENDA's story are:
Shaina Magdayao will be playing Neri, a street smart girl who’s about to experience new challenges in her life when she moves in with her aunt and cousins. She might look meek but she’s a real fighter, used to being independent since her mother died and her father became missing at sea.

Denise Laurel is Celine, a self-supporting gal, working as a gym and martial arts instructor. She’s Brenda’s best friend and Gen’s girlfriend. Guys tend to flip over Celine. They’d do just about anything to get near her.

Empress Schuck is Hillary, Brenda’s younger sister. She idolizes her sister so much to the point that she copies Brenda’s every move. Hillary also dislikes Neri, but eventually she warms up to her.

AJ Perez is Josh, Hillary’s twin. Hillary is the neat and proper twin while Josh is the more relaxed and easy going one. He immediately takes to his cousin Neri.

Victor Basa is Stick, Brenda’s boyfriend and Celine’s co-gym instructor. He’s a ‘super’ man – super kind, super disciplined and a super loving boyfriend.

Mikki Arceo is Mich, Mao’s geeky friend who has a huge crush on Stick. She might look harmless on the outside but think again! She hates Brenda for she gets in the way of her Stick-stalking activities.

CARLA Humphries is one of the youngsters who star in Star Magic’s new youth-oriented show, “Abt Ur Luv,” that starts this Saturday at 5p.m. She went steady with Janus del Prado after they were paired in “Qpids” but she now admits that they’ve broken up. Last she heard, Janus has found a new love.

“I’m happy for him na may bago na siyang mahal,” she says. “Gan’un talaga ang buhay, e. Friends pa rin naman kami.”

She, in turn, is enjoying the good breaks ABS-CBN is giving her. Her performance as Angelika de la Cruz’ feisty sister in “Bituing Walang Ningning” was praised by a lot of people. Now, she’s confident her role in”Abt Ur Luv” will also get noticed.

“Saka na ang lovelife since I’m only 18. Enjoyin muna ang buhay while you’re young. Hindi naman siguro ako mauubusan ng boys.”

Teen stars dominate ABS-CBN daytime programs

They are back and with a vengeance. Teenaged stars are changing the face of daytime TV, particularly on weekends.

It seems ABS-CBN has found the formula to buck competition by fielding the best-looking young things in the network’s weekend programming.

Tomorrow, the network is airing the premier episode of Star Magic Presents Abt Ur Luv.

Just looking at the title, average viewers know it’s meant for teenagers, which comprise the biggest chunk of the total audience pie in that particular time segment.

And the network doesn’t complicate things by convoluting the plot, or trying to imbue unfathomable themes. The show, as the title suggests, is all about love. It’s all about changes. It’s all about being real. It’s all about accepting disappointments. It’s all about being happy and finding a good set of friends. It’s all about living life to the fullest.

A new generation of stars populate the stories that tackle the problems and concerns of today’s youth beyond the raging hormones, the desire to be noticed and the hang-ups. Every episode happens on a particular day of the week, opening with stylish recaps of what happened in the other days of the week culminating on that particular day where all the highlights of the story unfold and ends with a substantial perception about love and life and everything in between.

Aaron Agassi, AJ Perez, Aldred Gatchalian, Angelo Patrimonio, Carla Humphries, Cris Gutierrez, Denise Laurel, Dino Imperial, Empress Schuck, Enchong Dee, Joaqui Mendoza, Lauren Young, Mikee Lee, Mikki Arceo, Rayver Cruz, Shaina Magdayao, Valeen Montenegro, Victor Basa and Zia Marquez are the new stars to watch.

Star Magic Presents Abt Ur Luv premieres with “New Sabado.”

After the death of her mother and her father, Neri (Shaina Magdayao) moves to her cousins’ home in the 24/7 compound in Manila from Zamboanga. Her cousin, Brenda (Carla Humphries) and company, make her feel unwelcome and more so when she runs into a fiasco with Gens (Rayver Cruz) and his girlfriend, Celine (Denise Laurel). Neri ends up on the missing list at the compound, sending the whole neighborhood looking for her. Neri realizes her first Saturday in the city maybe interesting after all.

Star Magic Presents Abt Ur Luv airs right after another hot teen show, Let’s Go.
