REGINE Velasquez moved to ABS-CBN last year and was given a lavish, fabulous red carpet welcome. She’s definitely a big loss for GMA-7. But it’s good Kiray Celis, aside from Devon Seron and Paul Salas, moved from ABS-CBN to be a Kapuso.
What do you call that? A vindication? Tit for tat? There’s justice in this world? Magkaka-level ba sila?
Aside from Regine, other stars who left GMA to be a Kapamilya are Ryza Cenon and Raymart Santiago. In turn, Kapamilya actors who jumped ober da bakod to GMA include John Estrada and Rayver Cruz.
There’s much ado now about Derek Ramsay moving to GMA-7 also but, in local showbiz (reality check), there’s a premium on being young and Derek is now 42 years old. His long stay with TV5 didn’t really help boost his career as an actor, so he might be a bit rusty when GMA-7 gives him a teleserye.
Well, we just hope that he can be like Gabby Concepcion, who is now 54 but is still being accepted by the viewing public even when he’s paired with much younger leading ladies, like Jennylyn Mercado in his newest show as a Kapuso.
