Yam Concepcion reveals that she has had offers to guest in TV shows of rival networks after the shutdown of her home network, ABS-CBN.
Yam, a VIVA Artists Agency artist, still appears in the afternoon drama series Love Thy Woman, which airs on Kapamilya Channel and Kapamilya Online Live.
Kapamilya Channel is the new home of ABS-CBN programs after the network’s franchise to air on free TV was killed by Congress.
Kapamilya Online Live is its online counterpart, which streams on YouTube and Facebook.
In the virtual press conference for the finale of Love Thy Woman on September 2, 2020, Yam affirmed that she will always be a Kapamilya, and this is the reason she has not accepted any offers of guest appearances in other stations.
“May mga parang offers na guesting from other networks, pero hindi ko siya kinuha kasi I’m still under the Kapamilya Channel.
“So ayun, pinipili kong manatili as a Kapamilya.”
Yam is also thankful to ABS-CBN for giving her projects despite the shutdown.
After Love Thy Woman, she is set to embark on a new project under the Kapamilya network.
Yam says, “Hindi ko alam kung puwedeng sabihin na ngayon, pero I’m working on something exciting.
“So ayun, nagpapasalamat ako sa Kapamilya, sa ABS-CBN, dahil kahit ganito iyong sitwasyon, may trabaho pa rin ako.
“Sobrang excited ako sa gagawin kong next project.”
Love Thy Woman is about to end its run on Friday, September 11, on Kapamilya Channel’s Kapamilya Gold block.
The series is also top-billed by Kim Chiu, Sunshine Cruz, Ruffa Gutierrez, Eula Valdes, and Xian Lim.
In the meantime, some ABS-CBN artists, particularly those from the network's talent arm, Star Magic, have made guest appearances in programs of TV5.
Star Magic head Johnny "Mr. M" Manahan also gave the artists the freedom to work with other stations.
YAM AS A KAPAMILYA
Yam started her career with ABS-CBN in 2013, when she was tapped to portray Ejay Falcon’s leading lady in the afternoon series Dugong Buhay.
This project came after the success of her debut project, the sexy movie Rigodon.
After Dugong Buhay, Yam did several kontrabida roles in Pure Love, Two Wives, and All of Me.
In 2016, Yam led the daytime series Langit Lupa with child actress Yesha Camile and Xia Vigor.
In 2017, after Langit Lupa, Yam joined the cast of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
However, she had to leave the show to do another prime-time series titled Halik, with Jericho Rosales, Yen Santos, and Sam Milby.
Her departure from FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano proved to be a good decision because her character in Halik became popular.
In the series, she portrayed the cheating wife of Jericho and the mistress of Sam’s character.
In 2019, it was announced that Yam would be in the cast of Love Thy Woman.
She replaced Erich Gonzales, who backed out of the project.
