Aicelle Santos Shines As Traffic Diva In 'Eat Bulaga', Now Romancing News Anchor Mark Zambrano

THEY USED to be both members of La Diva. But now, Jonalyn Viray has moved to ABS-CBN and currently interprets a song for their Himig Handog Songwriting Contest whose finals will be held tonight at KIA Theatre. Meantime, Aicelle Santos, who made a name for herself as a theatre actress winning Aliw Award best actress in a musical for the hit PETA play “Rak of Aegis” , also got her own big break as the Traffic Diva of “Eat Bulaga”. In her segment, she runs after jeepneys and cars in the street and make people sing with her.

“Nagpapasalamat po talaga ako sa ‘Eat Bulaga’ dahil mas maraming nakakakilala sa akin as the Traffic Diva,” she says. “Enjoy rin ako doing this kasi marami tayong napapasaya sa viewers in their own homes at natutulungan pa natin yung mga ordinaryong taong pinapakanta ko and they get cash rewards instantly.”

What can she say about Jonalyn’s moving to ABS-CBN? “Kung saan siya masaya, masaya kami ni Maricris Garcia for her. May pinagsamahan kaming tatlo sa La Diva at sana, magtagumpay talaga siya sa bago niyang network. Kung anuman yung mga naging problems noon, naka-move on na kaming lahat.”

Maricris is now officially engaged to her long time non-showbiz BF and she will be the maid of honor. Aicelle herself is now being linked to GMA news reporter and anchor Mark Zambrano. They started as good friends as they both belong to the same church, CCF. Before this, she was into a relationship with Gian Magdangal who has since moved to Hongkong to work in Disneyland. Aicelle is also busy cutting a new album for Jay-R’s label called Homeworks and she’s preparing to do a new musical play, “Sabel: Love and Passion”.
