How true that Arci Munoz terminated on her role at Kapamilya series Pamilya Ko because of an attitude problem?
A blind item in Bandera stated on February 28 that the character of a “pasaway na aktres” was k!lled in the teleserye.
The “pasaway na aktres” frequently went on international trips according to the blind item, which caused her to be absent in tapings.
The actress comes to the set late, whenever she tapes for the show. Apparently, Aric’s role as Betty on the said teleserye was k!lled off in Pamilya Ko at the time that the blind item came out.
Betty’s death came as a shock to viewers as she’s a major character: Chico’s love interest, played by JM de Guzman. That’s why people connected the blind item to her.
In an interview with Cinema News on March 4, 2020, Arci denied the attitude problem rumors and discussed the real reason why she left Pamilya Ko.
“Schedule ko kasi, parang it doesn’t permit… parang M-W-F kasi ang taping namin, so yung schedule ko, right now I’m gonna be doing movies.
“Sabi ko, I have to choose: mga opportunities na mawawala over soap, ganyan, scheduling ang naging desisyon ko.”
According to Arci, she and the production of Pamilya Ko were able to talk things over regarding her exit from the show.
Arci said, “Nag-usap kami ng production talaga ng maayos.
“Love ko yan, family ko yan, diyan ako nagsimula sa RSB.
“Kasi ang dami ko ring gustong gawin talaga na mga proyekto na hindi ko magagawa. Pinagbigyan nila ako, binigay nila sa akin yun.”
Meanwhile, Arci also has five movies lined up, two of which are independent films that she really wants to do.
“Kasi meron akong isang pelikula na gusto ko talagang gawin, mga indie na never ko nagawa sa buong buhay ko.
“Dalawang indie yun na gustong gusto ko talagang gawin. Nagkakaroon ng conflict sa schedule ko, sabi ko, palalampasin ko ba yung pagkakataon na yun.
“Though naintindihan naman nila ako na yun yung naging choice ko, at saka napagusapan namin ng mabuti na nandoon kami sa set, napagusapan namin ng mga bosses na ayun, sa schedule.
“Dami kong gustong gawin, e. Okay naman kami, scheduling talaga.”
The actress also expressed her sadness over her role’s sudden departure. However, she believes that her exit will give other cast members of Pamilya Ko the opportunity to shine in the Kapamilya show.
