It has been reported by Ricky Lo in Philippine Star yesterday that Heart Evangelista will be playing the role instead. I used to have a high respect for Ricky Lo because I thought he is fair in reporting entertainment news but then I should not have set my bar too high because this is showbiz industry anyway. Besides, Ricky Lo and Lily Monteverde are both sharing a Chinese family name so they must belong to the same circle of community.

Heart is "it"
The silent search is over.
The role of Sharon Cuneta’s daughter in Mano Po 6: My Mother, the successful Regal franchise intended for the Metro Filmfest in December, has landed on Heart Evangelista’s lap. It was first offered to Angel Locsin but she wasn’t given the go-signal by Star Cinema even if she still has an existing contract with Regal. Mother Lily could have filed a “breach of contract” case against Angel, but what for? She just shrugged it off and let divine justice take its course.
