This Week on 'We Rise Together': Calista, Robi Domingo + 'Bola Bola' cast!

A fast-rising girl group, an award-winning host, and the cast of a much-anticipated series were the guests for this week's "We Rise Together"!

The six-member P-Pop girl group Calista graced the March 21 episode to share more about their group's journey on how it was formed. They debuted just last February, launched their debut single "Race Car" earlier this month, and now, they're already gearing up for their first-ever concert titled "Vax To Normal” in Araneta Coliseum, no less.

Talking about their preparations for the concert, member Elle shared, "Bukod po sa intense 'yung dance training namin, talagang pinaghahandaan namin hindi lang physically, kundi mentally din po. And we're very excited kasi sa gitna ng pandemya makakapag-perform kami and sa Araneta pa 'yung concert namin."

Olive also teased that they'll have huge guests for their concert that will surely excite their fans.

"Nakaka-excite kasi 'di ba 'yung guests mga dance icon, sobrang nakaka-overwhelm lang. And sa performances, we tried a different kinds of dance, different genres of songs," she said.

For this week's flashback episode, let's all look back at Robi Domingo's previous guesting where he shared his firsthand knowledge in hosting, and how he's managed to become one of ABS-CBN's most bankable hosts.

According to the “PBB” alum, his talent in hosting is something he didn't master overnight.

"'Yung awkwardness nawala through practice and experience. I owe it to all of my directors na sobra akong pinapagalitan right after na umuuwi ako na umiiyak. Pero that was one of my greatest motivations na gusto kong ipakita sa inyo na kaya kong gawin 'to. It was not overnight, but it took me some years. And until now, it's taking me more time in order to hone my craft," he said.

Robi also shared more hosting tips for those who want to pursue this field, the local and international hosts he looks up to, and more!

"Bola-Bola" is finally premiering on iWantTFC! But before the series drops, the cast — Francine Diaz, KD Estrada, Analain Salvador, and Danica Ontengco — happily shared on the March 25 episode what their fans could expect from the show, from their characters to the plot.

Basically, "Bola-Bola" follows the story of 200-pounder Thea (Francine) who learns to embrace her self-worth and love for food.

With this as the story arc, the stars reflect on their own take on self-love and how they apply it to themselves.

KD recalled, "I remember before, I used to compare myself to people. 'Bakit ibang lalaki ganito? Tapos ako ganito lang.' We tend to compare ourselves to attractive people like on TikTok, and naging biktima rin ako doon. I'm still learning how I love myself, I would say, but compared to before, I think I'm doing much better now."

"The moment you start loving yourself, the moment you start seeing the beauty that you have, you start seeing the beauty of others din," he added.

Meanwhile, Francine believes self-love is a choice you have to make everyday.

"'Yung self love, hindi naman siya basta-basta naa-apply sa sarili mo, na 'pag sinabi mong, 'Tanggap ko sarili ko, mahal ko sarili ko,' ayun na 'yun. May mga araw pa rin talaga na ikaw mismo, iu-unlove mo 'yung sarili mo, eh. Kahit ikaw mismo ida-down sarili mo. Sa sarili mo 'yun kung pipiliin mong mahalin everyday, nasa sa'yo rin kung pipiliin mong mahalin araw-araw 'yung sarili mo," she said.
