There are two big rumors hounding the Kapuso network recently.
One is Regine Velasquez‘s rumored transfer to ABS-CBN, and the other is the speculation that Marian Rivera is pregnant with her and actor Dingdong Dantes‘ second child.
If both rumors are true, it is possible that Marian will go on a hiatus right after Regine’s farewell to GMA 7. Will the network be affected by these developments?
Regine and Marian have starred in a number of hit shows for GMA.
Asia’s Songbird has proven that not only can she sing, but she can also host a lifestyle show.
Aside from her music career, Regine has contributed a lot to the Kapuso network’s long list of top rated shows. She was a part of S.O.P, GMA’s former Sunday noontime show. The singer also hosted a number of singing competitions like Star for a Night, which discovered some of today’s well-known singers such as Sarah Geronimo and Mark Bautista.
Regine has also hosted Pinoy Pop Superstar and the Philippine edition of Celebrity Duets. Aside from hosting, she showcased her acting skills in Ako Si Kim Samsoon, Totoy Bato, Poor Señorita, and Mulawin vs. Ravena.
Her recent projects with the network includes Sarap Diva and The Clash.
On the other hand, Marian Rivera has starred in several popular teleseryes.
The list includes the network’s adaptation of the Mexican show, Marimar, which became the highest-rated primetime drama show on Philippine television.
Marian has also played the lead role in the fantasy series Dyesebel, her second time starring opposite her now husband, Dingdong.
She has also played as Amaya in the award-winning show of the same title.
The actress is currently a host of Sunday PinaSaya.
So the questions is: Will the absence of both greatly affect GMA’s standing as a network?

Mark Bautista is publishing his own book and people are already forming speculations about the “shocking revelation” written in one chapter of his autobiography.
The book entitled “Beyond the Mark” is due to be released on Valentine’s day, where the singer is said to reveal an ‘all-out’ exclusive on some part of his life that has been kept secret for long from the public.
In the “Friendshift” chapter of the book, Mark tells the story of his alleged “affair” with another local actor who had a girlfriend back then. Although Mark did not drop any names, the media and netizens have been forming speculations on who the singer is referring to.
Mark admits having a “bromance” with the local actor despite avoiding the temptation of seeing each other.
Accordingly, Mark tells the story of how he got “intimate” with the said actor one drunken night after seeing each other in a bar.
According to an online article, Mark shared in his book that after the actor’s girlfriend left, they then got drunk and he ended up going home with him and spent the night in the actor’s house where they reportedly became “intimate.”
Admittedly, Mark shared that the actor’s girlfriend found out and got so angry that it had started a “huge drama between the three and it became a spectacle.”
Although again, Mark did not mention any names, in an article published by Philstar, the alleged “bromance” between Mark and the other actor is circulating in the media right now and it looks like all fingers are pointing on actor, Piolo Pascual. The speculations are revolving around the actor and his then-girlfriend, KC Concepcion.
The issue surrounding the controversial break-up of model/actress, KC Concepcion and actor, Piolo Pascual is being dragged right now in social media following the confession that Mark shared in his autobiography. A lot of people have been linking the name of the two stars in Mark’s “bromance/ intimate encounter” story.
Although there is still no statements coming from either party regarding the allegations, netizens have come abuzz with the performer’s upcoming book which contains stories of his life’s journey including his love life. The book serves as his way of being true to himself and sharing his stories to the world.
The performer’s autobiography will probably make readers fall off their chairs because of some much-awaited revelations surrounding the performer. The book is set to hit the stands on February 14, 2018.
