According to Vhong, he was hesitant to go to the hospital and break his silence after the incident because he feared for his life and his family. He said that he drew strength from manager Chito Roño, his girlfriend Tanya and the public to pursue the case.

Film and TV director Chito Roño, Vhong Navarro's manager, told ABS-CBN News in a statement that the incident happened Wednesday (January 22). According to Direk Chito, a female friend invited Vhong to visit her in her condominium in Fort Taguig.

When Vhong entered the condo's premises, he was allegedly blindfolded, tied and beaten up by several men. The suspects also threatened Vhong and tried to extort money from him.

Vhong, the report said, was unable to detail the incident because he still can't speak properly. The authorities are still yet to find out the motives behind the attack.

Because of the severe injuries he got, Vhong might undergo surgical operation. While recuperating, the 37-year-old comedian will be temporarily absent on It's Showtime and on his other showbiz commitments.

Here is Chito Roño's full statement:

"Si Vhong Navarro ay naimbitihan sa isang condominium unit sa Fort ng isang kaibigang babae. At sa di pa malamang kadahilanan, siya ay piniringan, pinagtulungang bugbugin, ginapos, tinakot, at hinihingan ng pera ng isang grupo ng kalalakihan noong January 22, Miyerkules.

"Si Vhong ay kasalukuyang nagpapagaling at mawawala ng pansamantala sa 'It's Showtime' at iba pa niyang proyekto."

Filling in the shoes of Mexican Superstar Thalia, who first played the role of Maria Mercedes, is one of Philippine TV’s prettiest faces today and ABS-CBN’s newest primetime princess, Jessy Mendiola. She will portray the iconic role of Mercedes opposite leading men Jake Cuenca as Luis and Jason Abalos as Clavio.


“The Pinay Maria Mercedes will surely make Filipinos laugh, cry, and fall in love all over again with her colorful story,” said Jessy. “Viewers will get to relate to the story even more as we highlight true Filipino values especially our unconditional love for our family.”

From a simple life in the province, Mercedes, together with her father and siblings, will move to Manila to move on from the pain caused by her mother. But things wouldn’t go as planned when her father suddenly died and Mercedes was left with no choice but to take on the responsibility of raising her younger brother and sister at her very young age.

As time passed, Mercedes learned her way living in the metro and was able to provide for siblings Rosario (Devon Seron) and Andres (Yogo Singh) by juggling different but decent jobs alongside her childhood friend Clavio (Jason Abalos).

But her world will take a different turn once her heart starts to beat for the handsome and rich businessman Luis Sancuevas (Jake Cuenca). How will Mercedes deal with her feelings for Luis?

Jessy Mendiola is Maria Mercedes in ABS-CBN Remake; Jake Cuenca Plays Leading Man

Posted on April 17, 2013 | 10:00 AM

Jessy Mendiola has been chosen to play the role of Maria Mercedes in the upcoming Philippine remake of ABS-CBN. According to reports, Jessy was told of the good news late last year during the Star Magic Ball.

Jessy Mendiola is Pinay Maria Mercedes

As a teaser for the project, Jessy Mendiola appeared as Maria Mercedes Muñoz Gonzales in the ABS-CBN 2013 summer station ID. Jessy exuded so much sexiness, and the Latina vibe she possessed in her Preview magazine cover more than proved that she's Maria, herself.

Maria Mercedes is the first of the "Marias" telenovela trilogy followed by Maria la Del Barrio and Marimar, all of which starred Thalia. Aired locally by ABS-CBN in 1996, Maria Mercedes sees Thalia as a street urchin whose life takes a turn when she agrees to marry an immensely rich man who is terminally ill. Maria's leading man in the series is Jorge Luis.

Playing Jorge Luis is hunk actor Jake Cuenca. Maria Mercedes will be the first time that Jake will be working with Jessy and the actor is very excited for the project. 

"Sobrang grateful ako kasi may teleserye ako ulit. Si Jessy Mendiola pa ang leading lady. Napapanood ko ang 'Paraiso' at ang laki na ng in-improve niya, ang laki na ng maturity level niya as an actress and as a person. Tapos, magkaibigan din kami, so excited akong makatrabaho siya," the 25-year-old actor was quoted as saying by entertainment news site Philippine Entertainment Portal.

Aside from Jake Cuenca, reports also said that Jason Abalos will also be part of the project.

The rags-to-riches story of Maria Mercedes is the only hit in the "Marias" telenovela trilogy that is yet to be remade. ABS-CBN is already done with Maria La Del Barrio which was topbilled by Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee while GMA had Marimar (initially for Angel Locsin before she transferred to ABS-CBN) which launched the career of Marian Rivera. 

Slated to air this year, Maria Mercedes Philippine remake will be directed by Chito Roño.

Star Cinema's suspense-horror The Healing starring Vilma Santos and Kim Chiu had grossed P74.4 million in two weeks according to third-party tabulator Box Office Mojo (BOM).

Contrary to the report of Star Cinema, the box office gross of The Healing based on the tally of BOM fell short of its P80 million first week gross (studio report). However, BOM covers only about 60-70% of movie screens nationwide so this might cause the discrepancy.

Posted on July 31, 2012 | 10:42 PM

The Healing starring Vilma Santos and Kim Chiu grossed P80 million on its first week of showing according to Star Cinema. The Healing  is Gov. Vi's 50th anniversary movie and her first suspense-horror film.

The Healing is poised to be the third Pinoy film to reach the P100 million mark this year after John Lloyd Cruz and Angel Locsin's Unofficially Yours and Eugene Domingo's Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme.

The Healing First Week Gross: P80 million

This was quite an amazing feat for a movie that despite heavy rains and huge competitors from Hollywood  and the successul Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival managed to rake in a large sum of money. It can be recalled that The Dark Night Rises' 2nd week in theaters clashed with The Healing's first week while Cinemalaya ran from July 20-29, also showing simultaneously with The Healing.


The Healing, which is graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board, was given an R-13 and R-18 rating by the MTRCB. This would mean that in its two versions, strictly 13 years old or 18 years old and above can watch the movie (kids are not allowed).

Congratulations to the whole cast and crew of The Healing, especially to Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto and Direk Chito Roño. The Healing, now on its second week is still showing in theaters nationwide.
