The Girls of Pyra - Elle Ramirez and Zandra Summer!

My afternoon last Tuesday was truly on fire! Even though rain poured outside the GMA network tower, inside were the sexy girls giving heat to the rainy season!  

Elle Ramirez and Zandra Summer were two of the main stars of GMA-7's hit afternoon series "Pyra: Ang Babaeng Apoy." Their characters as antagonist makes the life of Pyra (Thea Tolentino) more miserable! But in my case, they posed cool photos with yours truly!

Check out some of my photos with the two sexy ladies Elle and Zandra!





 Elle Ramirez shifted from mabait  to kontrabida  characters. In her previous soaps in the Kapuso network, she played kalog and mabait. But here in their teleserye, she is the kontrabida, the antagonist of Pyra.

Check out our photos with Elle:



On the other hand, Zandra plays a good role. On our blog conference, Zandra showcased her talent singing the hit song "Price Tag."

Check out our photos together with Elle: 



Equally gorgeous and beautiful! Aside from Pyra, they can burn your afternoon TV series habit!

More photos with the Pyra characters up next on my succeeding posts! (RCB)

Meet the Cast of "Pyra: Ang Babaeng Apoy!"

I had a great afternoon last Tuesday, September 24, 2013 with the four lead casts of GMA-7's hit afternoon TV series "Pyra: Ang Babaeng Apoy!" The four cast members were the products of the network's 2012 phenomenal artista reality search, "Protege: The Battle for the Big Artista Break!"

Actually the event served as our reunion. Remember last year, yours truly also covered their competition and interviewed and mingled with these four young stars. Well, if you'll browse my blog and my facebook account, you will see lots of photos of us during their artista search days.   

 Jeric Gonzales, Elle Ramirez, Zandra Summer, and Thea Tolentino were four of the main casts who attended the fun bloggers conference of their teleserye. The event was not a traditional one we usually attended. It has full of fun games and activities involving us and the stars. The four stars even showcased their talents singing us different hit songs we love!

Check out our barkada shots with the cast of GMA's afternoon fantaserye:
 



Mingling them were truly fun and exciting! We even posed different cool shots altogether!

Well, if you want to watch their live performances showcasing their talents, here is the link of my TV Series Craze blog: Jeric Gonzales, Elle Ramirez, Zandra Summer, and Thea Tolentino Showcase Talents on the Blogcon of "Pyra: Ang Babaeng Apoy!"

On my next posts, I'll share with you more cool photos with each of them!
