Concert sweetheart Anne Curtis has found a true family in ABS-CBN, and this is why she had no doubts to stay with the network for another two years as she renewed her exclusive contract this Wednesday (Jan 29).
“I have found family. They’ll always have faith in you no matter what,” Anne stated.
The actress confirmed that her new contract includes her stint as co-host of “It’s Showtime” and a teleserye every year, including the iconic “Dyesebel” written by Mars Ravelo.
“It’s every girl’s dream to become a mermaid, so to be able to portray one that’s part of the history of Philippine literature is such an honor,” she said.
Anne also shared that they will start taping for “Dyesebel” this weekend in Coron, Palawan.
Meanwhile, Anne became emotional when asked to comment on the controversy involving her close friend and “It’s Showtime” co-host Vhong Navarro.
“For me kasi, I’m just happy that he’s safe. I’m happy that he’s getting through this. Because it’s hard to be in his situation, it was traumatizing. So I’m happy that he’s getting through it, he’s being strong,” she said.
She is also not convinced that there are other women, who have been sexually assaulted by Vhong Navarro who will speak up according to some news reports, as what Cedric Lee revealed.
“He is the same person on and off-screen. He’s too good. He’s kind. For me, he always treated me well. He has always been a gentleman to me, so I have nothing bad to say about Vhong.” Anne said in defense for Vhong.
Present during the contract signing were ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio, chairman Eugenio Lopez III, broadcast head Cory Vidanes, TV production head Laurenti Dyogi, business unit heads Reiley Santiago and Deo Endrinal, Viva Entertainment’s Veronique del Rosario-Corpus.
