After Mark Bautista, another Viva talent is reportedly joining GMA-7's new musical-variety show Party Pilipinas.
It seems like GMA-7's Party Pilipinas is banking on talents produced and honed by ABS-CBN's ASAP. And the business relationship between GMA Network and Viva Entertainment is getting stronger.
Tuloy na tuloy na nga ang pag-o-ober da bakod ng singer na si Rachelle Ann Go sa Party Pilipinas. According to a source, na very much associated sa Viva Entertainment, Rachelle will become a mainstay of Party Pilipinas after her contract with ASAP XV expires on April 4.
The source also said na ABS-CBN executives allegedly agreed to let go of Mark basta mag-stay lang si Rachelle sa ASAP pero isang napaka-generous na offer ng GMA-7 ang naging way to closed the deal between Rachelle and GMA.
Replay ang ASAP XV yesterday, kaya ang last performance ni Rachelle sa show ay last March 28 and she will be joining Party Pilipinas on April 11 which incidentally trade launch din ng GMA-7 at iti-tape ang Party Pilipinas sa SMX Convention Center.
Rachelle actually began her TV career on GMA-7. She was the grand winner in the Search For A Star (2004), a singing contest co-produced by GMA-7 and Viva Entertainment hosted by Regine Velasquez. She had a brief stint in the defunct SOP before moving to ASAP, along with fellow Viva artists Sarah Geronimo, Anne Curtis, and Mark Bautista.
But what is this we are hearing? Iya Villania, who is another ASAP XV talent at dating Kapuso ang lilipat din daw sa Party Pilipinas kasabay sa launching ni Rachelle. Iya actually started her career on GMA-7. She was part of the youth-oriented show Click.
Now who says, malapit ng mag-ending ang network war?
And after Mark, Rachelle and Iya, who's next? and next? and next?
