Kapamilya actress and real-life girlfriend of Luis Manzano, Jessy Mendiola, faced rumors that she has plans to leave her home network ABS-CBN and transfer to the rival network which is the GMA.
This was sparked by an Instagram post where Jessy wrote “Old endings and new beginnings”.
During a media conference for her movie with Arjo Atayde last March 26, Jessy was asked about the rumor. She then said, “Para sa akin po, kung mas may trabaho naman po doon, bakit naman hindi, di ba”.
But she stressed that she was still in touch with ABS-CBN management. In a previous article, she admitted that she was a bit frustrated because she still doesn’t have a project.
However, this transfer rumor seems not gonna happen right now.
During the press conference of the teleserye set to air on September 30, Jessy was asked if the new teleserye “Sandugo” was the reason why she is not transferring to GMA 7.

She hopes that her role this time will leave a mark to the audience.
“Actually kaya ‘di po tinanggap ko ‘yung role kasi po feeling ko kaya hindi ako nagkakaroon ng chance na patunayan ‘yung pag-arte ko kasi po hindi ako nabibigyan ng kakaibang role. So hopefully po sana mag-marka. There’s always a first time for everything,” Jessy said.
The actress also gave insight into her thought process in accepting projects or roles. She stated that if your not passionate or excited about a project, you might as well not take it.
She said that if you would, you won’t be able to give it your hundred percent. That would then be unfair to your co-workers, your bosses and the production staff, Jessy added.
With this, Jessy assured fans that she loves her role in “Sandugo”. She was also thankful to be given another role and had promised to give her a hundred percent for the character.
“I’m very thankful po nabigyan ako ng role at ng show ulit. Marami na rin pong mga shows na binigay pero ako din mismo sa sarili ko na hindi rin po ako ready and that would be really unfair to the people na nagbibigay po sa akin ng trabaho. I promise po this time, I think and I feel that I’m really having fun with my character,” she explained.
