Judy Ann Santos and Jolina Magdangal Movie
The giant television network ABS-CBN has denied the request of GMA Films’ to allow Judy Ann Santos and Jolina Magdangal to promote their upcoming horror movie entitled “Ouija” on several programs of Channel 2. The movie is a co-production of GMA Films and Viva Entertainment.
The ABS-CBN talent star cannot understand why her mother network wont allow them for guesting and promote their movie on some of the network’s programs just like the GMA allowing Piolo Pascual and Regine Velasquez recent romantic movie “Paano kita Iibigin” even if they are talents of different stations.
If Judy Ann is largely identified with ABS-CBN 2 though she is a freelance artist, Regine is also largely identified with GMA 7. Piolo is, of course, an exclusive property of ABS-CBN. Showbiz insiders reckon that ABS-CBN might still have unresolved issues with Jolina Magdangal who jumped ship from ABS-CBN to be with GMA 7.
Reports have it that ABS-CBN 2 seems to always want to get even. Many of us recall that when Marvin Agustin was still under contract with ABS-CBN’s Talent Center, the company prevented him from fulfilling the second part of his commitment with the now-defunct GMA 7 reality show Extra Challenge where he was teamed up with Jolina. It doesn’t even seem to help at all that Ouija’s chief promo man, Noel Ferrer, used to be an ABS-CBN 2 writer who also happens to be the manager of actor-host Ryan Agoncillo.
Judy Ann Santos and GMA Films are hoping that her supposedly mighty manager, Alfie Lorenzo, can use his clout and strong personality to allow a few promo guestings on the Kapamilya Network for his prized star and Jolina. It is not known if Viva has flexed its muscle on the matter since the del Rosarios of Viva maintain a very harmonious business relationship with the Channel 2 executives. Two of the network’s hottest stars are actually Viva contract artists—Sarah Geronimo and Anne Curtis.
