Apparently, Judy Ann has “tampo” with ABS-CBN as Star Cinema set the airing of their latest movie “When Love Begins” starring Aga Muhlach and Anne Curtis on April 30, the same date that her independent movie “Ploning” was scheduled to premiere. Judy Ann is one of the producers of said film and they are the first one to book the said date for the screening of “Ploning.”
“There’s no Filipino movie premiering on the whole month of April except for the 30th so why pick that day when there is one?”, the question the producers of Ploning are asking.
In an interview with Pinoy Entertainment Portal, Judy Ann expressed her disappointment:
“Ayoko na lang pag-usapan kasi ang dami kong puwedeng masabi na baka pagsisihan ko rin bandang huli. Basta kung ano na lang ang nararamdaman ko towards them [Star Cinema], I decided to keep it to myself na lang. I think, yun na lang din ang pinaka-magagawa ko para huwag na lang din ako sabihan ng mga tao na nagpapapansin or huwag sabihan na… Ewan ko kung naiintindihan mo ako na, â€˜Ay naku, nagpo-promote kaya gumagawa ng isyu.’ Kung anuman ang mga nararamdaman ko sa mga nangyayari ngayon, siguro I’ll just keep it to myself na lang.”
Judy Ann is very thankful with GMA 7 for the network’s support in promoting her movie “Ploning”. She’s hoping that ABS-CBN, on the other hand, will allow her to promote her movie despite conflict of interest since Star Cinema’s “When Love Begins” is airing on the same date with “Ploning.”
Last Sunday, Judy Ann is the special guest in the “Don’t Lie To Me” segment of the GMA showbiz-oriented talk show Showbiz Central. She was able to promote her movie on the said show.
Judy Ann had a problem before in promoting her movie with GMA Films, “Ouija”, on ABS-CBN shows. Her manager Alfie Lorenzo even accused ABS-CBN of sabotaging the premiere of Ouija in the US.
And when asked if she will renew her contract with ABS-CBN, she replied:
“Pag-iisipan ko muna siguro nang matagal,” sagot niya. “Parang feeling ko kasi, loyalty is not enough evidence for them to support you, e. Alam n’yo yun? Pero siyempre, in fairness naman, ang dami rin naman talagang itinulong sa akin ng mother studio ko. Ang dami rin naman nilang ibinigay na pagsusuporta sa akin. I really appreciate those things.
“Pero alam n’yo, meron talagang time na dumarating na they will test your loyalty. They will test your patience and everything na puwedeng i-test sa â€˜yo. At siyempre, tao ka lang. Wala ka namang magagawa kundi mag-react ka lang. Pero hanggang doon ka lang, hanggang react ka lang kasi naka-kontrata ka, e.
“Hindi naman ako yung tipo ng taong magsasabi ng masama sa kanila. Ano lang ako, ang puwede ko lang gawin, e, hanggang pagsasabi lang ng nararamdaman ko. Pero wala ako sa posisyon para magsalita ng masama against them, kasi marami rin naman ang utang na loob ko sa kanila.”
Apparently, Judy Ann has still 1 year before her contract with ABS-CBN expires. Her next project with the kapamilya network is the teleserye “Habang May Buhay” opposite Derek Ramsey.
