Ruffa Gutierrez clarifies she can ‘work with everyone’ amid rumored transfer to ALLTV
Ruffa Gutierrez has clarified she does not have an exclusive contract with any network, amid speculations she transferred to ALLTV.
The actress made this clarification Tuesday, Sept. 20, via a comment on her Instagram post two days earlier on Sept. 18. Gutierrez was responding to a netizen who apparently thought she had transferred networks.
“Ruffa G, I will miss you na [kasi] I heard star ka na ng new channel,” one @fabglammom told Gutierrez. (Ruffa [Gutierrez] I will miss you because I heard you are now star of the new channel.)
“I am a freelancer. No exclusive contract with any network. I am allowed to work with everyone,” Gutierrez replied.
Gutierrez then shed light on her absence from the noontime show “It’s Showtime,” where she is a judge for the segment “Showtime Sexy Babe.” This she said, also last Tuesday, while replying to a netizen who was asking her why she left “It’s Showtime,” as seen on comments in her other Instagram post last Sunday.
“Miss [Ruffa] bakit po kayo lumipat sa ALLTV? ‘Di ba po sa Showtime kayo? Nakakalungkot naman po iniwan niyo ang ‘It’s Showtime,’ kayo po ang favorite kong judge sa Showtime,” the netizen said.
(Miss Ruffa, why did you transfer to ALLTV? Aren’t you on “It’s Showtime”? It is saddening that you left “It’s Showtime,” you are my favorite judge there.)
“Hindi ko iniwan ang [‘It’s Showtime’]. I’m on vacation po,” Gutierrez explained. (I did not leave “It’s Showtime.” I’m on vacation.)
This comes after Gutierrez attended the launch of ALLTV with fellow celebrities Toni Gonzaga, Mariel Rodriguez and Ciara Sotto, among others, as seen on her Instagram page last Sept. 14.
ALLTV, run by Advanced Media Broadcasting System, started airing last Sept. 13. Gonzaga, Rodriguez and Sotto are all part of the network’s artist lineup, alongside Willie Revillame, Paul Soriano and Anthony Taberna, among others. /ra
