Regine Velasquez has dubbed ABS-CBN Network as the “number one station” in the country.
In her media conference at the Dolphy Theater, she clarified the real reason why she signed with the Kapamilya network. She said that it’s not because of how much was offered to her, but because of the opportunities to work with talented artists.
“No… you know, at my age and at the stage of my career, we all know, you know, alam nilang lahat ng mga reporters dito na mga kaibigan ko na, hindi naman ako ilusyunadang tao. Alam ko naman kung ano yung lugar ko sa industry.
“Sobra akong touched na touched sa welcome na ibinigay sa akin ng ABS-CBN kasi hindi ko akalain na ganun ako kaimportante, hindi po ako mailusyunadong tao.
“But the reason why I’m here is because hindi ko alam kung hanggang kailan ko pa kayang kumanta, and I want to work with their talented singers.”
She then proceeded to acknowledge ABS-CBN as the number one station.
“Yun talaga yun, na bago man lang matapos yung career ko, masabi kong nakatrabaho ko din ang number one station.”
Regine also revealed that she’s looking forward to working with the network’s biggest singers such as Martin Nievera, Gary Valenciano, Piolo Pascual, Morissette Amon, and Sarah Geronimo.
After the transfer of Asia’s Songbird, Regine Velasquez to ABS-CBN, Kapuso fans are now looking for a big star to replace the void that the singer left in the network.
One of their preferred personalities is Kris Aquino, who has been taking a break from television and is currently handling her own social media pages.
Netizens have been commenting on the actress’ Instagram posts about their hopes of seeing her in the Kapamilya network soon.
hope will see more of you sa GMA
Sana ma’am mag GMA7 kana…
A fan said that Kris is fit for a morning talk show with the Kapuso network.
Want to see you in GMA, a morning talk show will do. Just like the old times. Wishing….hoping and praying.
Another fan suggested a cooking show for Kris, like Regine’s past project with the network ‘Sarap Diva.’
Bagay sau ang cooking show ms.kris…kagaya ng sarap diva…
A netizen didn’t ask much, she just wants Kris to have a sit-down interview with Jessica Soho.
I would love to see a sit down interview with KMJS.
Someone even said that he hopes to witness the actress’ GMA appearance before Christmas.
I would love to see you at GMA Pinoy TV Miss @krisaquino doing what you love the most, Hosting. @gmanetwork @km_jessica_soho @willierevillame please make this happen before Christmas.
Kris didn’t waste time and replied to one of the requests, saying that she’d love to work with GMA personalities, however, she has limitations regarding her schedule and it would be embarrassing to the network if she delivered an underwhelming result.
@lenimagsipol this is very hearwarming to read, i’d love to, i’ve always been vocal that i’d love to work with @km_jessica_soho and/or kuya josh’s favorite Willie Revillame BUT i have limitations regarding my work hours, locations, and the number of work days i am allowrd per week… nakakahiya sa @gmanetwork & the family of @annettegozonvaldes if they don’t get their money’s worth. Thank you for the uplifting wish.
It has been a while since the rumors of Regine Velasquez’s network transfer started and it hasn’t died down since.
Asia’s Songbird has been said to leave GMA Network a handful of times in the past, however, the rumors appeared once again as her husband, Ogie Alcasid, officially signed with ABS-CBN.
People started to question if the speculations are true when Regine liked a comment on her Instagram post, asking if what she’s wearing is for ABS-CBN’s Sunday noontime show ASAP.
Pang-ASAP na po ba yan?
Although it still remains unconfirmed, an article in PhilStar stated that some GMA executives are not fine with the decision of the singer. As rumors escalate, a number of netizens have reacted negatively to the network-change buzz.
One Twitter user said that it’s really just about money.
Napirata na…. Pera pera talaga laban. Wala ng loyalty. Hahahah. Goodluck songbird. D na lang kita mapapanood. Still a fan though
@encaswift also chided Regine’s lack of loyalty to the network.
Loyalty was lost.
@Graciagara19 questioned why GMA artists tend to transfer to the rival network.
Bakit mga talent ng GMA nalipat sa ABS-CBN e sumikat sila sa GMA.? walng utang na loob lng? Etong c @reginevalcasid sabi d daw lilipat e anong mga balita n lilipag sya.? Kinain nya lang daw mg sinabi niya. Kaloka mga tao. Walang kontento sa buhay.
@Shookira_Bitch pointed out the Kapuso network’s considerations regarding the singer’s decisions. The netizen proceeded to call her “spoiled.”
When @reginevalcasid got pregnant, @gmanetwork was so understanding of her, lahat ng gusto sinunod lahat spoiled sya kasi nga she’s The Regine Velasquez. But the songbird wants more after ABS denied they wanted her to play Betty La Fea, short memory lang????!
When someone contradicted the tweet, the Twitter user continued to accuse Regine of dishonesty and told her not to come back to the Kapuso network.
So may utang na loob ang GMA kay Regine!!??? Nakakatawa ka. Artists come and go, Network stay. Talent sya she’s being paid by the network. My point is… inalagaan sya pero hindi naging honest sa process… pwede naman syang gumawa ng pelikula sa SC and still be loyal! Ganun
Everyone who transferred to ABS is looking for growth… eh di Goodluck sa kanya. Yun lang. I won’t argue anymore coz this is me… I’m after loyalty wag na syang babalik sa GMA pag hindi na sya pinakinabangan ng ABS. Ok!!! Ciao!
