Rayver Cruz shows his support to his girlfriend Janine Gutierrez.
Respective long-time artists of ABS-CBN and GMA-7, celebrity couple Rayver Cruz and Janine Gutierrez overlapped for two years in the latter network when the actor transferred there.
Now, it’s Gutierrez’s turn to make the big switch — to Cruz’s former home network, ABS-CBN.
Gutierrez, 31, signed on Friday a contract with the Kapamilya network, after nearly a decade with rival GMA-7. Cruz, 31, moved to the Kapuso network in 2018, after 14 years with ABS-CBN.
Despite now parting ways in terms of their professional home, Cruz was among the first to congratulate and celebrate his girlfriend’s new career milestone.
On Twitter, Cruz wrote, “Soar high my love, will always be your number one fan.”
Janine signed a contract with the network on Friday.
Present at the contract signing is Dreamscape Entertainment head Roldeo Endrinal.
ABS-CBN bosses Carlo Katigbak, Cory Vidanes, Mark Lopez, Ric Tan, and Janine’s manager, Leo Dominguez.
Gutierrez also got a warm welcome from some Kapamilya stars, who commented on her Instagram post about her signing with ABS-CBN.
Notably, Angelica Panganiban, whom Gutierrez had identified as one of her dream co-stars, wrote, “Can’t wait to work with you.”
A lot of people were quick to congratulate Janine Gutierrez and give their inspiring messages following her network transfer which is a big move in a celebrity’s career.
In the Philippine showbiz industry, one thing that is inevitable in the career of a celebrity is the network switch or the transfer from one TV network to another for different reasons.
Some transferred home networks to seek better opportunities while others wanted to explore the field more and have the chance to work with other stars in the industry.
Gutierrez is the latest in a long list of Kapuso-turned-Kapamilya stars.
