PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7, published as is:
Versatile actress Glaiza de Castro and sought-after artist Louise delos Reyes renewed their ties with GMA Network. The two beautiful ladies were welcomed by GMA officers as they inked a three-year exclusive network contract [last November 9] at the GMA Network Center.
Present in the contract signing were GMA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, GMA Films President Atty. Annette Gozon-Abrogar, GMA Entertainment TV's Officer-in-Charge Lilybeth G. Rasonable, GMA Vice President for Drama Productions Redgie Acuña-Magno, GMA Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, GMA Artist Center Assistant Vice President and Head for Talent Imaging and Marketing Unit Simoun Ferrer, and Program Manager for ETV Charles Koo.
Also in attendance were Glaiza's manager Manny Vallester and Louise's manager Elvira Perido. Both Glaiza and Louise are co-managed by the GMA Artist Center.
During the contract signing, Glaiza reveals that she considers her renewal of contract with the Kapuso Network a blessing, "Masaya kasi lahat ng mga bagay na iniintay natin kapag binigay na, ang sarap ng pakiramdam. Rewarding siya. Isa siyang blessing talaga. At isa sa mga prayers na natupad."
Louise, on the other hand, says that she is very thankful to GMA for continuously providing her good projects all these years, "Talagang Kapuso ako noon pa man. Sinabi ko sa sarili ko na GMA ang nagbigay sa akin ng malaking break kaya tatanawin ko itong malaking utang na loob sa kanila. Sobra nila akong pinagkakatiwalaan sa mga magagandang projects. Para sa akin it's a dream come true and masaya ako na nangyari ito sa career ko."
Atty. Gozon believes that Glaiza and Louise are among the most talented and hardworking artists in GMA, "Itong pinirmahan natin ngayong hapon ay renewal. At iyan ang nagpapatunay na sa ating pananaw ay talagang magagaling ang mga artistang nirerenew natin at dapat lang bigyan ng magagandang projects sa darating na araw."
Rasonable shares that she is very pleased that the two prime celebrities continue to remain loyal to the Kapuso Network, "This is a special and happy day for GMA Network kasi meron na naman tayong officially ay sinign-up to long-term contracts, Glaiza and Louise, both of whom are very talented actors whom we see so much more potential to grow as artists so nararapat lang na nandito sila sa GMA kung saan pwede naming palawigin pa ang kanilang mga careers."
Glaiza is currently part of GMA News TV's Katipunan and Sunday All Stars while Louise is part of Sunday All Stars' Team Tweethearts.
