1 ICYMI, Nadine Lustre threw boyfriend James Reid a surprise pool party for his 23rd birthday on May 11! If you’ve ever attempted to throw a party—and a surprise one at that—you know it takes a lot of sneaky planning. So how did Nadz pull it off? “Kami ni Bret Jackson [James’ best friend], more than a week kami nagplano, medyo matagal… Ang plano namin talaga namin ni Bret, pool party," she told PEP.ph.
“Nakakita kami [ng private pool] sa Antipolo, nung nakakita kami, tuluy-tuloy na yung plano namin… Lahat ng friends niya, na-invite na namin, naka-book na, plantsado na lahat.” Now the tougher part: bringing James to the actual venue! “Sabi ko sa handler niya, ‘Ate Ka, bigyan mo si James ng schedule ng May 10 kasi nagplano kami ni Bret ng surprise party para sa kanya," Nadine shared.
Because James had previously asked for a few days off, a sudden work commitment the day before his birthday didn’t go down well. “Nagalit siya kasi birthday niya,” said Nadine, so she had to ask James’ handler to cancel his meeting. Bret then invited James to Antipolo to “chill” and the rest is history! (PEP)

3 John Lloyd Cruz is definitely open to staying friends with ex-girlfriend Angelica Panganiban! The actor revealed that the two are in good terms and that they communicate occasionally.

4 Bianca Gonzalez certainly lives up to her social media handle iamsuperbianca. The 33 year old, who’s in the States for vacation with husband JC Intal and daughter Lucia, posted this photo of her pumping breast milk at an NBA game! Being a mom is a full-time job for sure!
5 Azelia Banks, the American rapper with a dirty mouth, has had her Twitter account suspended after she went on a racist tirade against Zayn Malik. The feud erupted when Azelia accused Zayn of ripping off her music video for “Yung Rapunxel.” Zayn struck back—but without directly mentioning Azelia—by tweeting, “No lies… I see you reaching but I don’t care” and “My @s too good for you.” This set Azelia off, and she proceeded to use homophobic and racial slurs against the “Like I Would” singer.
