SO, are Max Collins and Pancho Magno back together or they haven't really broken up contrary to rumors?

The celebrity couple celebrated their son Skye Anakin's second birthday on July 6. It was Max who first hosted the space-themed party days before her "little astronaut's" actual birthday at a hotel. Present were who she described "more than just titas" Rhian Ramos, Solenn Heussaff and Katarina Rodriguez.

For his part, Pancho threw another party with the same motif on Skye's natal day.

Max's and Pancho's presence should put to rest incessant talks about their separation. It will be recalled that the absence of either parent at Skye's separate birthday parties last year had spawned speculationd that the couple drifted apart.

To this day, however, neither of them has confirmed or denied persistent rumors.

Should Kylie Padilla who spilled the beans at a media conference take credit for the scoop?

Asked who she considers her closest showbiz friend, Kylie picked on Max citing their commonalities. She was quoted to have said, "Pareho kasi kami, nagpakasal, nagkaanak tapos nahiwalay rin."

Max and Pancho tied the knot at the Manila Marriott Hotel in December 2017 seven months after they got engaged.

But with the couple both present this time around at their son's birthday bash, wasn't it proof enough that they actually never separated?

If so, then we should all be happy for them, shouldn't we?

Looks like talent manager-vlogger Ogie Diaz is resigned to the fact that there's no way Terrence Romeo's ex-wife Beatrice will be able to pay him back.

This he realized when he was recently rummaging through the contents of his bag stumbling upon the latter's bouncing cheques issued to him.

"Paano pa niya ako mababayaran kung nakakulong siya?" Ogie told himself.

As much as possible Ogie refused to openly forgive Beatrice citing his past experiences with friends who he trusted but emptied his ATM cards.

"Kasi pag sinabi kong napatawad ko na si Beatrice, baka matulad lang siya sa dalawang kaibigan ko dati who I forgave but their lives only became miserable. Kaya I rather keep silent, bahala na ang Diyos sa kanya."

Without sharing the exact figures, Beatrice owes Ogie millions of pesos.

The money should be of great help to Ogie now that he seems to have taken a respite from artist management.

Personal: I would like to take this opportunity to thank certain individuals and entities for the medical help extended to this writer.

Not necessarily in this order, I wish to show my heartfelt appreciation to my colleague Lito Manago (former vice president of Enpress, of which I was a member) and to Sylvia Sanchez who, no matter how busy she was, found time to communicate through Messenger.

Also, thanks to former co-staffer in Viva TVand in GMA now news director of UNTV Michael Fajatin and his fellow news talent Rome Travallo.

Gratitude is likewise in order to Ms. Menchie Silvestre of TV5's "Alagang Kapatid."

Lastly, I realize that even after my writing stint with GMA officially ended in 2015, I am still treated as part of the Kapuso family.

Thanks to Ms. Marian Grace Antonio of GMA CorpComm who brokered on my behalf for the free medicines I requested from Kapuso Foundation.

To those who have made their pledges, thank you as well.

I know they will kill me for this as I'm aware that there are people who choose not to flaunt their acts of charity.

But sincerely, I cannot thank you enough!

More power!
