Last month, Atom Araullo was introduced as the new Kapuso star under their News and Public Affairs. Just recently, Jason Abalos signed an exclusive contract in GMA Network to be an official Kapuso star as well. Here in the Philippines, a celebrity who decides to transfer from one network to another is definitely a buzz for everyone.
Let’s take a look at some of the celebrities who chose to follow their hearts and was once a Kapamilya Star:
Valeen Montenegro was a former Star Magic talent. She currently starred in My Korean Jagiya as the kontrabida Filipina ex-girlfriend of Jun Ho.
Ivan Dorschner and Addy Raj are both part of the hit primetime series, “Meant To be”. They are part of the four Bachelors who aims to win Billie’s heart acted by Barbie Forteza.
Mika dela Cruz, younger sister of the “Ika-anim na Utos” star Angelika dela Cruz, transferred to GMA in late 2016. Her sister Angelika was also a Kapamilya star before.
TJ Trinidad, Martin del Rosario, Dominic Roco, Edgar Allan Guzman, Rafael Rosell, Tom Rodriguez, Archie Alemania, Paolo Contis, and Rodjun Cruz are among the hunks who jumped from ABS-CBN to GMA network.
Veteran News Anchor Mel Tiangco and Unang Hirit resident host Connie Sison used to be part of the Kapamilya News Team.
The Young sisters, Megan and Lauren were both former Kapamilya Stars. Megan started in Starstruck and returned to GMA in March 2015, while her sister became a Kapuso star in late 2012.
Eat Bulaga host and soon-to-be mommy Pauleen Luna was a former member of Star Circle Batch 11 in ABS-CBN along with Glaiza de Castro. Both are now certified proud Kapusos.
Eliza Pineda and Camille Prats started her acting career since she was a child. She grew up in ABS-CBN, yet she decided to be a Kapuso after years of being a Kapamilya Talent. She has a regular show in GMA News TV entitled Mars with co-host Susi Entrata-Abrera.
When asked regarding their decision about changing networks, better opportunities and environment development are probably the most common excuse of these stars. Whatever their reason is, it is important that we respect them as a person. After all, networks rivalry is only measured through the ratings of their respective shows.
