Kylie Padilla on Aljur Abrenica encouraging her to stay in GMA-7: "What he said to me, 'Alam mo, sa ngayon you have a place there sa GMA. So gawin mo na lang yung best mo.'"



Kylie Padilla said she remains a solid Kapuso. 

Although her husband Aljur Abrenica is currently with ABS-CBN, Kylie clarified that he never asked her to transfer to the Kapamilya network so they can work in the same TV network. 

The 26-year-old Kapuso actress explained, "When it comes to my career, I have the last say. Siyempre, ipapaalam ko sa kanya yung mga gusto kong gawin. Pero at the end of the day, ako pa rin." 

She revealed that Aljur actually advised her to stay in GMA Network. 

"What he said to me, 'Alam mo, sa ngayon you have a place there sa GMA. So gawin mo na lang yung best mo.'

"Hindi naman sa makabawi. Ang pangit ng bawi... Pero ipakita mo sa kanila na you're ready to work again." 

As it happened, Kylie was among the lead stars of GMA-7's remake of Encantadia together with Sanya Lopez, Gabbi Garcia, and Glaiza de Castro.

The top-rating Kapuso telefantasya aired from July 2016 to May 2017. 

But in February 2017, Kylie was forced to leave the show because she was pregnant with Aljur's child. 

She returned to work in May 2018 via her guest appearance on GMA's weekly variety show Lip Sync Battle

In June 2018, she and her Encantadia leading man Ruru Madrid had a special appearance in the 2018 Kapuso prime-time series The Cure, topbilled by Jennylyn Mercado and Tom Rodriguez.  

In September 2018, Kylie had another guest appearance with her fellow Sang'gres in the now-defunct telefantasya Victor Magtanggol

This 2019, Kylie and Ruru are headlining TODA One I Love, a political romantic-comedy series that GMA News and Public Affairs created in time for the May elections. 

Aljur, for his part, is set to headline ABS-CBN's upcoming drama series SanDugo together with Ejay Falcon and Elisse Joson. 

Talking about how she and Aljur work in two different TV networks, she said:

"Actually, na-enjoy ko siya, 'We have our respective places na, di ba?

"So he goes to work. I go to work. We have two different worlds.

"Pero nagma-match din when it comes to the right time like the [ABS-CBN] Ball, di ba? Nakapunta ako dun, nakabisita ako." 

She added that it's also good for them to have their own space when it comes to work. 

"Oo, e. Dati kasi when we were younger, halimbawa, magre-rehearsal, magkikita na naman kami sa rehearsal.

"Tapos hindi ko alam kung magiging sweet ba ako, or yung ilulugar mo pa yung sarili mo...

"Ngayon, it's very professional na, wala nang ganun."
