Many believe Janine Gutierrez left GMA-7 mainly because she is unsatisfied with her career growth there. There are also those who believe she decided to leave the network and jump to ABS-CBN, following Bong Revilla’s return as Kapuso. So, which is which?

Apparently, none of the above.

According to the actress, she simply wanted to try something “new and different.”

As she put it, “New year, new home.”

“New and different and I’m really looking forward to that this 2021, ‘di ba? Parang nagbago na ‘yung mundo,” she added.

Janine also expressed her long hidden desire to work with Kapamilya personalities.

“I’m excited to work with the actors, the directors there yung mga team doon, yung mga production (people)…”

“My mom (Lotlot de Leon) is also there and my brother, si Diego, he just started on ‘ASAP.’ So ayun, I am excited to work with them also.”

And in a seeming indirect jab towards her former mother network, she intoned, “I know all the Kapamilya shows are talagang magaganda at exciting at quality.”
