Bianca Umali Getting Prettier & Sexier By The Day, Has A New Show With Miguel Tanfelix, 'Usapang Real Love', Starts Airing This Sunday Afternoon

BIANCA UMALI is definitely one of the most promising young stars of GMA today. A former child star, she’s getting prettier and sexier by the day. She was first paired with Miguel Tanfelix in “Paroa, Kuwento ni Mariposa” four years ago and since then, their BiGuel teen love team has gained its own legion of fans.

“Four years na yung love team namin but we got to know each other as child stars seven years ago pa when I was only nine,” says Bianca. “So ganun na namin katagal na kakilala ang isa’t isa. We saw each other growing up.”

So what’s the real score between them now? “We’re very good friends pa rin po. Hindi kami nagmamadali kasi 16 pa lang naman po ako, never been touched, never been kissed. At siya naman, he just turned 18.”

“Kaya sana po, huwag nyo kaming madaliin,” says Miguel, who’s been appointed as Youth Ambassador of the U.N. Population Commission for being a good and wholesome role model in maintaining his belief in being pure before marriage. “Basta sa ngayon, we’re so happy na mas nagiging closer ang relationship namin as good, good friends. Mas priority namin ang career and studies. Ako po, araw-araw pumapasok sa La Salle for entrepreneurship.”

They’re now paired anew in another show, “URL (Usapang Real Love)”, billed as the first interactive rom com on Philippine TV. The show had its presscon last Wednesday and it also happened to be Miguel’s 18th birthday so he was feted to an instant birthday party by the press and the GMA staffers.

“URL” will have its pilot telecast this Sunday at 4:45 PM after “GMA Blockbusters”. It’s a different kind of show that bridges social media and romantic comedies in one game-changing television project. It features one-of-a-kind love stories headlined by popular Kapuso love teams, which will be told in four weekly episodes. URL engages netizens through the video challenges posted on the UsapangRealLove Facebook page. Viewers are invited to submit their video entries by sending it as a message on Facebook, uploading it on Instagram or tweeting it on Twitter and tagging @UsapangRealLove with the hashtag #MagpaFANsin. The chosen video will be featured on TV and win a prize.

The first episode is “Dream Date” and it will star the hosts themselves in a story of two young people who both dream of having “dream dates”. Aside from Bianca and Miguel, the other stars of this 4-week story are Jak Roberto, Yayo Agila, Lloyd Samartino, Jade Lopez, Ces Quesada, and Gene Padilla directed by Real (not the fake one) Florido, the director of the fast becoming controversial Nora Aunor movie, “Kabisera”, that seems to be taking forever to complete kahit wala namang forever.

Next month, the second story is “Perfect Fit” featuring Andre Paras and Mikee Quinto, supported by William Lorenzo, Mickey Ferriols, Arra San Agustin, Jay Arcilla, Vince Gamad, and Bern Josep “Bekimon” Persia.
