It looks like Janine Gutierrez is on her way to becoming a Kapamilya.
Earlier today, January 8, 2020, her manager Leo Dominguez posted a Facebook photo with her and Paulo Avelino. The talent manager handles the career of the two stars.
It was taken during their dinner with Deo Endrinal, the head of Dreamscape Entertainment, ABS-CBN’s content providing unit, Rondel Lindayag, the outfit's creative manager, and handler Rey Lanada.
Leo said in the post that the meet-up was a “congratulatory dinner” for Janine and Paulo.
Janine recently won Best Actress at the Gawad Urian Awards 2020, while Paulo was hailed Best Actor at the Metro Manila Film Festival 2020.
Leo wrote, “Thank you Sir Deo Endrinal for the Congratulatory dinner for Paulo Avelino and Janine Gutierrez [heart emoji]”
Paulo's current project under Dreamscape Entertainment is the prime-time series Walang Hanggang Paalam.
Meanwhile, talks are getting louder about Janine’s impending transfer to the Kapamilya network after 10 years of being a Kapuso.
It was on December 28, 2020 when PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) published a scoop about Janine moving to ABS-CBN in 2021.
Janine’s contract with GMA Artist Center ended on November 1, 2020.
A contract renewal no longer surfaced between Janine and her former co-manager.
According to PEP.ph’s Cabinet Files, Janine will be doing a drama series with ABS-CBN.
Its details will be announced when Janine finally signs a contract with the network this month.
Janine is the first Kapuso actress to transfer and sign a contract with ABS-CBN after Congress shut down its free broadcast.
Does this dinner also mean that her first project as a Kapamilya will be under Dreamscape Entertainment?
This question has yet to be answered once Janine and her management make a formal announcement about her transfer to ABS-CBN.
