Marian Rivera Remains Loyal to GMA Network

Putting an end to rumors of a network transfer, Primetime Queen Marian Rivera officially renewed her contract with broadcasting giant, GMA Network, the actress' home studio since her debut in showbiz in 2005.


Under the contract, Marian will remain an exclusive star of the Kapuso network for three more years.

The signing was held Saturday morning (August 10) at the Manila Golf and Country Club in Forbes Park, Makati.

Also present were GMA Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, President and COO Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr., EVP and CFO Felipe S. Yalong, GMA Films President Atty. Annette Gozon-Abrogar, Entertainment TV Group OIC Lilybeth G. Rasonable, Entertainment TV Vice Presidents Marivin Arayata and Redgie Magno and AVP for Alternative Productions Gigi S. Lara.

Although Marian did not disclose the details of her contract and her upcoming shows with GMA, she said that she is definitely going to have a primetime series this year.

The actress admitted that there was an offer from another network but she decided to remain a Kapuso because there is no reason for her to leave GMA.

“Ever since naman hindi ako pinabayaan ng GMA e. Damang dama ko ang pagmamahal ng GMA sa akin at ako naman ay tumatanaw ng utang na loob,” shared the actress in an interview after the contract signing.

Marian and her boyfriend actor Dingdong Dantes will be flying out of the country to celebrate Marian’s birthday on August 12. The actress said that she has no knowledge about the details of the trip except that Dingdong asked her to bring a swimsuit and a formal dress.

Would this just be an ordinary birthday trip or a surprise proposal? We will find out soon.

    she is Urong-SUlong Movie Queen…bonga!

  2. Hopefully, magawan ng paraan ng GMA na magka acting award naman siya. Hindi yung pipitsuging award giving bodies ha, yung well established like FAMAS or URIAN. That’s the only way her being queen can be validated.

    Naglabas lang ng pahayag c Wilma Galvante n Wala clang offer kay MR nagkandarapa agad magrenew ng Contract..nyhahahaha!!!BUTATA

  4. @solid kapamiya it must be really bea big frustration for you how she manages to stay on top all these yrs. All her series are flop really? You are so stupid and deranged. That’s Marian Rivera the only primetime queen of pinoy. And for people who kept comparing Marian with Angel get a life. Marian is way up above her in everything. She respects the network that gave her stardom by not putting money above everything. There’s a wide gap between them both.

    Di naman sya pwede sa abs eh baka ayaw bigyan ng malaki ng tv5 kaya aun gme pa rin walang choice eh

  8. Panay ang parining ni Marian noon na pede syang kapuso, kapamilya o kapatid bago matapos ang contract nya sa GMA7, problema walang ibang network nag offer kaya stay na lang sya kapuso. So ngayon si Ai AI na lang magpromote ng Kung Fu Divas sa Channel 2. Di papayagan si Marian ng GMA7.

  9. I don’t understand why people would compare Marian and Angel. Malayo. Well, both are gorgeous and great actresses. But the main difference is that LOYAL si Marian, at hindi siya na sindak sa pera. AMININ! Hindi mukhang pera ang isa. I don’t know why Angel transfered when she was the Primetime star in GMA before. . . oh well.

  10. Its never been an issue..hayyy…gumawa cya ng movie para kumita ng 17 milion…ok na rin kaysa a walang manuod…
