Mas may dating nga ang Catarina o Catalina. Mas mysterious at sensual ang tunog.

PEP EXCLUSIVE. Alden Richards on loveteam with Marian Rivera: “Parang gusto kong magtago sa ilalim ng lamesa at saka magsisigaw na 'Totoo ba 'to?’”

Marian Rivera-Alden Richards soap, from "Catarina" to "Carmela"
Marian Rivera is all set to start taping her new soap for GMA7 with the title “Carmela,” (working title is "Catarina") to be written by Suzette Doctolero and helmed by Dominic Zapata, the same team who did the much talked about hit “My Husband’s Lover.”
It looks like GMA Network is kinda doubtful with "Catarina" (see: Marian Rivera in her most sensual role on TV) that's why they changed it to "Carmela." (see: Marian Rivera’s New Teleserye Title Is…..CARMELA). Compared to "Catarina" which is a very rare name and kinda mysterious, "Carmela" sounds soft and sweet.
Based on the meaning from Ask.com, the name "Carmela" means 'Garden' or 'Orchard' and its origin is from Hebrew. The name Carmella is a popular female name used in United States and it is derived from the name Carmel.
Alden Richards will be her leading man and he’s also very excited about it. This will be his next challenging role after “Mundo Mo’y Akin” with Louise de los Reyes. Director Dominic Zapata will helm this project with other confirmed cast like Agot Isidro, Max Collins, Roi Vinzon, Jennica Garcia, Rochelle Pangilinan and a lot more.
It would have been great to see Tom Rodriguez as well but I know that they're having issues with her former manager at this time. So Alden is a great choice as he has proven really good acting skills. GMA is taking a good risk with this project that would certainly increase Alden's status as the next GMA Primetime Prince.
Sa isang banda, excited na rin si Marian sa pagbabalik serye niya. Masaya raw siya sa mga makakasamang cast kunsaan, bukod kay Alden Richards na leading man niya, leading man din niya rito si Raymond Bagat*sing.
Isang bata at isang mas senior ang edad kay Marian ang kailangan daw talaga sa character.
Although, balita namin ang Ang Pinakamagandang Babae sa Ibabaw ng Mundo ay mas iikot daw talaga ang kuwento sa mag-ina. Ang ina ni Ma*rian dito ay ang nagba*balik Kapusong si Agot Isidro.
“Excited ako talaga to work with her. First time ko siyang makakatrabaho at noong una ko siyang makasama sa storycon namin. Natutuwa rin ako na pumayag siyang gawin ‘to at bumalik ulit siya ng GMA for this.
“Kasama rin sa cast ang mga kaibigan ko, si Rochelle (Pangilinan) at si Ana (Feleo).”
Ano naman ang masasabi niya kay Alden na hayagang ipinapakita ang pagka-overwhelm na leading man na nga niya.
“Okay naman siya, okay naman kasi talaga si Alden. Nakatrabaho ko na rin siya dati sa My Beloved at nakikita ko na determinado siya at tala*gang malaki ang respeto sa akin.” (ROSE GARCIA)
Marian Rivera’s New Teleserye Title Is…..CARMELA
By The Feisty Filipina
As we’ve posted before, CATARINA was just a working title for Marian Rivera’s upcoming teleserye. Marian’s new TV alter ego whom I’m pretty sure we’ll love and root for starting January 2014 is CARMELA. I can see Marian definitely rocking the name. I like CATARINA too. It has a European and vintage ring to it, and sounds really tough. CARMELA on the other hand has a Spanish sound with a soft and sensual touch which the team might be going for instead.
I’m so excited, aren’t you?

Alden Richards is excited about 2014. Come January, Carmela, his project with Marian Rivera will be launched.
A Teaser On Marian Rivera’s New Teleserye
By The Feisty Filipina
There are so many rumors going around regarding Marian Rivera‘s new teleserye which serve as a promotion slant somehow but somewhat deceiving too. Here is something that oughtta whet your appetite until January 2014.
The teleserye with a working title of CATARINA(final title still under consideration) is focused around the story of a daughter doing everything she can to avenge all the wrong things that happened to her Mother. She is envied by so many people for reasons she doesn’t understand but will eventually use for her mission.
Alden Richards is one of the leading men and his character has a purpose to the whole story. The 2nd mysterious leading man is going to be the most intriguing part considering the working history between him and Marian Rivera. Intriguing yet oh so delicious.
Marian’s character will fight a battle that will question her morality to the core. Who and what will she sacrifice in her quest to fulfill her mission. Family, friends, acquaintances, be damned!
And wait ’till you find out who her main kontrabida is. Not only is Marian’s character the envy of all in the story itself, I reckon’ in showbiz as well.
If Temptation Of Wife revolved around Angeline/Chantal’s revenge on her husband, this new teleserye revolves around her Mother. People are going to get hurt, situations are going to be questioned, values are going to be sacrificed, all in the name of the woman “CATARINA” loves the most.
As of today, the names Gabby Concepcion, Princess Punzalan, Susan Roces, and Robin Padilla whom are supposedly part of cast are actually not. That might change from now and in between but right now there’s no truth to them being part of the show.
Marian Rivera, all set for 'Carmela'
2013 has been a fruitful year for Marian Rivera, having consistently won acting awards here and there. The Kapuso Primetime Queen has received the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series” award at the ENPRESS Golden Screen Awards. She was also named “Celebrity of the Year” at the Yahoo! OMG! Awards 2013 and most recently, she was named “Best Drama Actress” at the 27th PMPC Star Awards for Television for her performance in Temptation of Wife.
She is also nominated for “Best Actress” for her performance in Temptation of Wife in the upcoming Asian Television Awards to be held in Singapore on December 5.
Now, Marian Rivera makes her much-awaited Primetime comeback via Carmela. The series is set to air on 2014, and Kapuso heartthrob Alden Richards will be Marian’s leading man.
At the Carmela story conference held last November 19, Marian expressed her excitement in working with the cast of her upcoming series.
She addressed them and said, “Siyempre gusto kong mag-thank you sa mga cast. Thank you lalo kay Ms. Agot dahil tinanggap niya ito. Alam kong maraming offer sa kanya, pero binigyan niya ng pagkakataon na makasama ako at kaming lahat. Siyempre hindi rin biro na maging nanay ko sa isang soap opera.”
Expect to see Agot Isidro in a performance unlike any other. Her role in Carmela veers away from the previous roles she has done on film and television. The mother-daughter rapport between Agot and Marian is definitely something worth watching out for.
Marian also mentioned that being given the opportunity to play the title role Carmela means a lot to her. She explained, “Excited ako na mag-work ulit dahil after ng Temptation [of Wife], seven months akong na-tengga, so ito na ‘yung pinakahihintay kong soap opera. Sisiguraduhin ko hindi ako magiging mahirap na katrabaho para sa inyo. Ako mismo ang magre-reach out sa inyo para mas maging mas masaya ‘yung set natin.”
Addressing her co-actors, she said, “Ang dami ko nang soap na nagagawa, at naniniwala ako na ‘pag hindi maganda ‘yung kinalolooban ng soap, makikita mo. Nagrereflect talaga. Gusto kong nagrereflect yung ginagawa nating masaya pero makabuluhan. At the same time, complete na tayo at excited tayong makilala ‘yung isa’t isa at mas lalalim pa ‘yung friendship.”
She added, “Thank you, Direk [Dominic Zapata] and Ms. Suzette [Doctolero]. Mabigat po ito sa akin [ang tagline na] ‘Pinakamagandang babae sa ibabaw ng mundo’. Excited talaga ako.”
Catch the beautiful Marian Rivera at her best in Carmela, coming this 2014 on GMA Telebabad.
