This Week on 'We Rise Together': New 'He's Into Her' Bearkada, Maxinejiji + Pia Wurtzbach!

A new barkada to watch out for, a passionate author, and an iconic beauty queen and leading lady were the guests for this week's "We Rise Together"!

Joining DJ Jhai Ho on the February 28 episode are the newest "He's Into Her" Bearkada members JC Alcantara, Shanaia Gomez, River Joseph, Mikha Lim, Zach Castañeda, CJ Salonga, Reich Alim, and Rajo Serrano. 

In the show, the cast shared how being part of the breakthrough series was a dream come true for them.

“Sobrang blessed ko. As in, sobrang saya ko," JC gushed. "Kasi before 'Hello, Stranger,' ang dami kong experiences nun...Gusto ko maka-work lahat ng cast ng 'He's Into Her.' And ngayon naka-work ko na sila. Nakakatuwa lang na makatrabaho sila at maka-bonding sila."

Shanaia, for her part, recalled the days she was just a host for the series' after-show.

“So grateful. Literally [a] dream come true. I literally remember doing the 'Benison Ball' and we're all like, 'One day, it's gonna be us. Sana we get to be in the show.' Now, we get to be part of the experience. It's so much fun being with all of them," she exclaimed.

This week we're taking it back to the guesting of Maxine Lat aka Maxinejiji, the author behind the "He's Into Her" novel. 

Back during her guesting in April 2021, Maxine shared the inspiration behind the novel and how she feels that her book is finally coming to life. 

"Before kasi bago ako magsulat, gusto ko lang makabuo ng story na feeling ko hindi ko pa nababasa. Sobrang dami kong achievement na nakuha sa 'He's Into Her' kaya kulang na kulang 'yung salita na masaya para masabi ko 'yung feelings ko talaga," she said.

"My Papa P" star Pia Wurtzbach graced the March 4 episode for a mini catch-up and interview with her co-stars Daniela Stranner and Anthony Jennings.

The beauty queen-turned-actress then shared more about her character in the upcoming sitcom, and her working relationship with her leading men and the rest of the cast. Pia also opened up about her boyfriend, Jeremy Jauncey's plans to visit her in the country this April, now that the Philippines has eased its quarantine restrictions.

During the "To Be Honest" segment, Pia was then asked how it feels to both have a Jeremy in her life, and at the same time work alongside the Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual.

"To be honest, I don't know how I did it," she quipped.

All joke's aside, Pia answered, "To be honest, I'm so grateful. I am at the point in my life now where I get to work with Piolo Pascual and be his leading lady. And at the same time, I'm in a very secure relationship, and hindi ko kailangang mamili between my love life and my career -- I can have both. And I'm very, very grateful for that," she gushed.

"My Papa Pi" will premiere this March 5, 7PM, on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z Channel, TFC, and iWantTFC.
