Anne Curtis open to working on acting projects with GMA

August 3 ------ An absolute emotional roller coaster. That was how Anne Curtis described her feelings when the “rigodon” of the three noontime shows on television — It’s Showtime, E.A.T. and Eat Bulaga — happened recently, which also caught everyone by surprise. “I think noong panahon na ‘yun medyo mixed emotions talaga siya. We were scared, we were sad, we were curious. And then, we became excited, we became happy, and grateful. It was really a roller coaster of emotions during that period,” said Anne after It’s Showtime moved from TV5 to GMA network-owned GTV Channel. “And now, we are so excited and happy to come to work every day because our family has gotten bigger,” added Anne who pleasantly greeted the viewers of Fast Talk with Boy Abunda with, “Hello po, Madlang Kapuso, Madlang Pipol, Madlang Kapamilya!”

Her guesting on my show was not the first time for Anne to set foot inside the premises of GMA Network. It was 13 years ago when she guested on various Kapuso programs to promote the 2010 movie In Your Eyes that she starred in with Richard Gutierrez and Claudine Barretto.

Anne began reminiscing about her early days in show business when I told her I still remember the first time I interviewed her inside the Viva office when she was just 13 years old. She revealed that the many firsts in her acting life actually happened in the Kapuso network. “My first-ever teleserye was on GMA, my first-ever comedy show was on GMA. Perhaps, my first-ever dancing experience and even my first singing experience were also on GMA. “So, there were many firsts. I remember, I think Viva and GMA were working very closely before so nag-T.G.I.S. ako, Anna Karenina, Ikaw Na Sana and I also became part of Nuts Entertainment.”

I asked if she’s open to working on acting projects with GMA, Anne agreed with nary a sign of hesitation. “Oo naman po,” she affirmed and added, “Even before It’s Showtime was on GTV, I was able to do a film with GMA Films and Viva because I am under Viva naman, so I am still able to collaborate with GMA.”

Perhaps, having It’s Showtime on GTV may once again be the beginning of Anne guesting on various GMA shows. Besides, a good number of Kapuso artists have already appeared on It’s Showtime. It’s Showtime first premiered on Oct. 24, 2009 on ABS-CBN until the network went off air after the franchise lapsed three years ago. But the noontime show has continued to provide viewers with an entertaining experience on various platforms like GTV, Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, TFC and A2Z.

The noontime show has a stellar lineup of hosts that includes — aside from Anne — Vice Ganda, Kim Chiu, Vhong Navarro, Jugs Jugueta, Teddy Corpuz, Ryan Bang, Karylle, Jhong Hilario, Amy Perez, Ion Perez, Jackie Gonzaga, Ogie Alcasid, MC Muah and Lassy Marquez, among others. “I think what makes Showtime work is that our main goal ever since (it premiered) was to make the Madlang Pipol happy and along that journey, we were able to form a family and share that same goal.”
