For the first time, Beauty Gonzalez faced the media after her aborted transfer to GMA-7.
She attended the press conference of her upcoming ABS-CBN drama series Kadenang Ginto, which she will topbill along with Dimples Romana, Andrea Brillantes, Francine Diaz, Adrian Alandy, and Albert Martinez.
During the October 3 media interview, Beauty said about being a Kapamilya, "I was always here lang naman, nandiyan lang ako sa gilid gilid."
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) then asked her about what happened to her supposed transfer to GMA-7 last June 2018.
She said with a laugh: "Well, I was just being a good neighbor, that's it.
"Yes, nangangapit bahay lang. Ano ulam diyan? Ganun. Patikim naman ng ulam diyan.
"[Ngayon], Balik uli ako sa bahay ko, tulog na muna ako."
Beauty did not divulge more details about her aborted transfer, but she admitted how happy she is to remain a Kapamilya.
"Siyempre masaya, parang okay, masayang masaya.
"I'm happy to be here and dito naman ako nagsimula at dito ko rin naman gustong matapos, basta masayang masaya ako na nandito ako."
In August 2018, Beauty signed her first exclusive contract with ABS-CBN, even though she has been a Kapamilya for already 10 years.
"Yes, this is my first contract 10 years after working with ABS-CBN.
"Pero you know what, I'm happy na ngayon lang binigay sa akin, kasi kung sa totoo lang, kung binigay nila yun dati sa akin, siguro hindi ko siya naalagaan ng mabuti.
"Kasi at that time, 'Oh my God, ilang taon lang ako noon—16—ano ba namang alam ko sa trabaho, pagte-taping, pag-aartista, maging seryoso sa work?
"So tamang-tama lang din na nagmold ako, mas marami pa akong natutunan, nag-grow ako as an actress, naging professional na ako sa work ko so it came at the right time."
How does Beauty's husband feel about this development in her career?
"Okay lang! Hello ang daming mga iba na they all want to be here and I'm so lucky I'm here and I'm so lucky with my job.
"I mean mahirap umiyak, pero sa totoo lang napaka-dali lang talaga, pero I'm so happy and okay na sa kanya na siyempre dalawang taon lang naman, e. Forever naman na kami talaga."
