This Week on 'We Rise Together': Gerald Anderson, Gigi De Lana, Chie Filomeno + more!

A fresh new team-up, a newly unveiled calendar girl, and three amazing singers were this week's guests on "We Rise Together"!

It was another musical Monday as Hero, Cool Cat Ash, and Ford Valencia graced the December 6 episode of the show. The three talked about the success of their new music, and the process on how they came up with their LSS-worthy hugot songs.

In the show, Ford also reacted to the disbandment of his former group BoyBand PH now that he’s pursuing a solo career as a singer.

“Mahirap tanggapin na ako na lang din as a solo artist kasi nasanay ako na lima kami. Mahirap kasi hindi ako sanay na mag-isa eh, sa showbiz, palagi kaming lima. Panibagong journey, panibagong challenge pero I'll go for it,” he said.

“Pinoy Big Brother Kumunity Season 10” alum and Ginebra San Miguel’s newest calendar Chie Filomeno gushed about her back-to-back projects on the December 8 episode, admitting that she’s still in a state of disbelief over the blessings she has been receiving.

The actress also took us back to the day she found out she was chosen as GSM’s 2022 calendar girl.

"'Yung RM (road manager) ko before, tinimbrehan ako na baka mapili ako na calendar girl, pero may pinagpipilian pa. Maraming babae. Sabi ko, kung hindi para sa'kin, okay lang din, in God's perfect timing lang talaga. Kung for me, happy, it's really meant for me," Chie recalled.

"One time, may na-receive akong text from my handler, rekta na -- 'Chie Filomeno, are you ready? Calendar girl.' Siyempre ang daming tao, nasa buffet kami noon ng friends ko, [sumigaw ako] 'Oh my golly!' Sabi nila, 'Ano'ng nangyari?' Sabi ko, 'I'm your new calendar girl for 2022!' They were so happy," she added.

Chie then immediately contacted her mom afterwards, who was also very happy for her.

With only a few days till the premiere of "Hello, Heart" on iQiyi, Gerald Anderson and Gigi De Lana teased their fans during the December 10 episode about what to expect from their first project together.

And being one of ABS-CBN's most sought after leading men, Gerald shared what made him say yes to do a project with the RISE artist.

"It's not just about the partner, it's about the story," said Gerald. "'Yung storya, 'yung maishe-share namin sa tao, kung makaka-relate ba sila, is this something I personally wanted to do sa career ko at this point of my career."

"And then noong nalaman ko na si Gigi [ang makakapareha ko], nag-research ako sa Youtube. It's something that will add excitement sa project, 'yung tandem, 'yung partnership [namin]. Working with new artists, with up and coming artists, it makes my work exciting also," he added.
