“Magpakailanman” features Katrina Halili story this Saturday, Jan. 26

Controversial Palaweña actress Katrina Halili story will be featured in GMA Network’s “Magpakailanman” hosted by veteran journalist Mel Tiangco, in this Saturday, January 26’s episode.


Magpakailanman will feature the story of controversial actress, Katrina Halili this Saturday, January 26 on GMA-7.

Halili who rose to popularity mid-2000’s after joining a reality-TV celebrity-search, “Starstruck” was involved in a ‘sex video’ scandal with model-surgeon Hayden Kho, which made her the center of media attention years ago.

Now, Katrina is back on her feet — and is ready to share her life’s story on the national TV where she appears as herself.

After having a baby with her boyfriend, Kris Lawrence, the actress is determined to regain everything she had lost: career, dignity and her personal sense of purpose.

Lawrence will also portray as herself in the episode. Their baby, Katrence will also appear in the latter part of the story.

GMA-7 said in a press statement sent to ElysPlanet.Com, “Although the episode will inevitably touch on the very sensitive sex video issue, it won’t dwell on that. Katrina’s relationship with her family — especially with her grandmother — and her romance with Kris is expected to take a bigger chunk of the episode.”

Also starring are Anita Linda, who portrays Katrina’s grandmother who passed away during the times when Katrina was in the midst of the controversy, Allan Paule and Timi Cruz (as Katrina’s parents) and Marky Lopez (as Katrina’s assistant).

Veteran actress and director, Gina Alajar, who also directed the previous week’s high-rating Magpakailanman episode, “Pakawalang Anghel” will  also be directing “Ligaw na Diyosa: The Katrina Halili Story.”

“Magpakailanman” airs after “Kap’s Amazing Stories” on GMA-7.
