Just days after we posted Bela Padilla 2016 Year in Review, we were saddened to hear Bela Padilla’s revelation during the press conference of My Dear Heart that she and longtime boyfriend Neil Arce decided to part ways. She didn’t reveal the reason, but she says that they maintain as good friends/business partners. We are hoping for the fast recovery of Bela’s heart. Don’t worry, maraming work! 😀
Bela Padilla is an acclaimed actress with many achievements under her belt especially in 2016. She had consecutive movies, TV shows, and appeared in and recurring commercials endorsing several prominent brands.
While #CocoBel have a strong following due to their roles in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, Bela’s own relationship with longtime boyfriend, Neil Arce.
Here are the top 10 reasons that shows how Bela Padilla made 2016 her year.
#CocoBel – Oozing with onscreen chemistry!
1. #CocoBel! Coco Martin and Bela Padilla’s pairing became trending in 2016 with the success of their teleserye, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. The CocoBel pairing clicked so much because of the chemistry they oozed during their scenes.

2. Praise for “I America”, Bela’s first Cinemalaya movie!
Directed by Ivan Andrew Payawal, “I America” is a comedy drama film chronicling the journey of a complex half-Pinay, half-Caucasian lady looking for American living in Olongapo City (Philippines) who tries to get her passport and US visa in order to meet her father personally for the first time. Many critics raved on Bela’s compelling acting propelling the movie well.
Her performance in I America has led to an endorsement for another indie project whose title she’d rather keep to herself for now.
FPJ’S Ang Probinsyano is a very complex story with its protagonist, Cardo, having many love interests through the course of the show. But the one love team we admired the most was Cardo-Carmen. Coco Martin and Bela Padilla had a great chemistry that enabled them to bring their character’s relationship so beautiful on the screen.
Even when they did not end up together, I still think that they would make a good couple. FYI: Carmen was Cardo’s eventual wife in the original Ang Probinsyano Movie. Let’s reminisce together the most memorable scenes of Cardo and Carmen.
1 . A Promise: Even when he pretends to be his brother, Ador, Cardo promises Carmen that he will take care of them. “Pangako ko sayo, babawi ako…”
2. Cardo’s New Life: Cardo Meets Carmen for the first time.
3. Expressive: How do you react to your late twin brother’s hot wife who thinks that you are him? Awkwardness overload.
Media, corruption, killings. Is there anyone left you can trust?
