It’s no secret that one of today’s hottest stars, Maine Mendoza, first caught public attention through her Dubsmash videos lipsynching the Queen of All Media Kris Aquino. The online fame soon paved the way for Maine to be discovered by the country’s longest-running noontime show, Eat Bulaga, and the rest is history. Due to network rivalry, the only time we saw Kris and Maine together was in that photo of a product launch of Kris’ endorsement. Maine has not yet entered showbiz back then and she and a fellow “Kris Aquino” Dubsmasher were just invited as online sensations.
Little did online sensation #MaineMendoza know that her life will drastically change after her Dubsmashing-Kris Aquino stint went viral (the Eat Bulaga-AlDub phenomenon, magazine covers, a top-grossing film, numerous endorsements, and countless awards). 🙂 Fast forward to 2016, she’s now filming her highly-anticipated movie with #AldenRichards in Italy. ?? #AlDubTiAmoItaly FOLLOW us here @randomrepublika for more updates and ADD us on SNAPCHAT (username: RandomRepublika). ?

Due to the recent turn of events, Kris and Maine working together is now a huge possibility. This is following Kris’ Instagram revelation that she is now part of the APT family (Revelation story HERE). APT’s talent management arm All Access to Artists (Triple A) also handles the careers of Maine and Marian Rivera.
Last July, Kris guested in Marian’s morning show on GMA, ‘Yan Ang Morning. In the said episode, Kris expressed approval of Maine. Kris appreciated that the young star constantly acknowledged her in interviews about her success. Meanwhile, Marian and Kris are already connected as the latter is a principal sponsor at Marian and husband Dingdong Dantes’ 2014 wedding.
Will we be seeing the three stars in a single project? That is certainly something to look forward to.
