"Ibang-iba yung kuwento ng Sabel, itonaman talagang malumanay, napakatahimik pero napakabigat at malalim. Ito yung pagkatapos ng sine kailangan maykausap ka kasi hindi ka matatahimik, ‘Bakit ganun? Bakit ganyan,' yung ang damimong tanong," Judy Ann Santos about the comparison between Ploning and her previous movie Sabel.

In order to clarify things, Judy Ann explained about the issue for the first time yesterday, April 26, during her live guesting on StarTalk.

"It's true," confirmed Judy Ann. "This is the first time that I'm really gonna answer the question pararin po hindi ko na sasagutin sa iba pang magtatanong sa akin.

"Yes, they offered five million worth of teaser or trailersa station nila, but I said no because in respect of GMA-7. Kumbaga, media partner ng PanoramanilaPictures ang GMA-7. But I appreciate the thought na gusto nilang [ABS-CBN] tumulong.

"Pero sana po, noon pa nang in-offer namin sa kanila, hindikung kailan nakapagsalita na kami na GMA-7 ang katulong namin. May paninindigan ako, ayokong isipin ng mgatao na wala akong isang salita."

Judy Ann also stated that despite this, she still hasn'tforget ABS-CBN which have been her home network for a long time now.

"Malaki ang utang ng loob ko sa ABS-CBN, kung utang ng loobang pag-uusapan. Nagsimula ako sakanila. Pero sa panahon ngayon, hindinaman nila ako puwedeng sisihin kasi in-offer naman po namin sa kanila, e," saidJudy Ann.

BUSINESS IS BUSINESS. It has been written many times that Judy Ann was disappointedbecause her movie Ploning would be competing with her mother station'smovie titled When Love Begins. Both movies are scheduled to open on April 30.

In connection to this, Judy Ann also said in another interview that ABS-CBN even asked her to move Ploning's playdate to giveway to When Love Begins.

She said, "They told me nga, dapat daw ay iurongna lang namin sa May 14 ang opening day namin 'cause When Love Beginswill be opening on April 30 rin daw.

Meanwhile, in StarTalk yesterday, the young superstarsaid that she understands that everything is just part of the business.

"Para lang po sa mga hindi nakakaalam, bilang negosyante atbago lang sa pagpro-produce ng pelikula, wala naman po talagang issue saplaydate kasi alam naman namin na negosyo 'to, parte talaga na magkakaroon ngmga tapatan ng mga playdates sa pelikula."

While explaining, Judy Ann could not stop herself fromsaying her disappointment.

She reiterated, "Pero sa parte ko lang po bilang talent dinnila at contract artist din nila, espesyal sa akin yung April 30 kasimonth-long celebration po ito. But I'm not asking them to move naman theplaydate. We just asked, we offered them to promote our movie. But since ang sinabi sa amin, they can'thelp us because they have a movie, they have to promote When Love Begins. Naintindihan din naman namin yun that's whywe offered it to GMA-7."

StarTalk then asked Judy Ann about the reaction ofher manager, Alfie Lorenzo, with regards to this issue.

"Si Tito Alfie naman laging naka-back-up saakin 'yan, wala naman akong masasabi and nakasuporta naman siya. Since unang beses ko nag-produce and alamnaman niya na itong pelikulang ito, e, regalo sa akin ng best friend kong siDante Garcia at ni Ryan [Agoncillo, her boyfriend], para sa libro. Kumbaga, malaki yung importansiya nito sa akin. Lahat ng buong buhay ko, nakasugal dito sapelikulang ito."

Despite this issue, Judy Ann is still thrilled about hernew movie.

"Excited kasi first movie ngbest friend kong si Ga [Dante Garcia], siya rin yung sumulat ng pelikula. At the same time, first time din akongnag-produce ng pelikula so all-out din naman kami sa ng nagsuporta. Lahat ng mga kaibigan kasama na sa pelikulakaya espesyal na espesyal siya, nataon pa sa birthday ko na month ng May."
