After arriving in the country from her crash course in fashion design at the London College of Fashion and a very short vacation in Los Angeles, Angel Locsin is back in the country to face the controversies. The erstwhile GMA-7 talent arrived at the NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) last Thursday, August 9, at around 4 a.m.

Angel was met by her father, Angel Colmenares, her sister Ella, and her manager Becky Aguila. From the airport, she and her entourage proceeded to the Manila Peninsula to rest.

On Saturday, August 11, Angel kept her appointment at ABS-CBN to finally set her signature on two contracts that the Kapamilya network promised her before she left the country.

"It is exactly 12 noon and ongoing ang contract signing ni Angel Locsin sa 14th floor ng ELJ building sa ABS-CBN," narrates Bianca Gonzales, one of the hosts of the Saturday afternoon showbiz-variety show Entertainment Live.

After the ceremony was completed, Bianca was the first to greet the new addition to the Kapamilya family.

"Masaya ako. Sobrang saya ko at natagpuan ko na ang bagong bahay ko," said an overjoyed Angel about her transfer to rival network, ABS-CBN.

"Ang ganda naman nun. I love it!" gushed the equally overjoyed Bianca. "Ikuwento mo naman sa amin kung ano 'yung pinirmahan mong kontrata."

"Pumirma ako ng dalawang kontrata. Isa para sa TV at isa para sa Star Cinema. Habang ginagawa ko 'yon, nanginginig ako. Excited talaga ako at naramdaman ko kung paano ako sinuportahan ng ABS-CBN sa panahon na down na down ako.

"Nagpapasalamat ako sa kanila at sa tingin ko, tama ang ginawa ko talaga," she said with a smile.

"Siyempre, the first question is, saan ka nga ba namin unang makikita? What's your first project?" asks Bianca.

"Napag-usapan namin and excited ako, kung papayagan lang ako ni Piolo [Pascual] na makasama..." she trails off. "Pinawisan ako bigla. Sana makagawa ako ng pelikula with Piolo."

An earlier report of PEP says that Angel will star with Piolo in a fantasy-drama series titled Taong-Lobo.

Angel also ticked off the names of other big stars in the Kapamilya Network. "Excited rin ako makasama 'yung mga reyna ng ABS-CBN, tulad nina Ms. Claudine Barretto, Bea [Alonzo], Anne [Curtis], Ms. Judy Ann Santos, at marami pang iba."

Bianca candidly told Angel that male Kapamilya actors are lining up to get the chance to do a project with her.

"In past interviews, kapag tinatanong 'yung mga male stars kung sino ang gusto nilang makatambal, ikaw yung lagi nilang sinasagot," says the host of Entertainment Live. "The other day, sabi ni Piolo, ‘Sana movie with Angel.' How does it feel? Nagkita pala kayo ni Piolo kagabi, ikuwento mo naman sa amin 'yung pinag-usapan niyo."

"Nakalimutan ko kasi nakatingin talaga ko sa kanya," says Angel, obviously tickled by the chance to talk with the heartthrob.

"Actually, matagal na naming pinag-uusapan ni Piolo na sana magkatrabaho naman tayo, sa TV or kahit sa pelikula man lang. Lagi kaming nagkakasama sa commercials. ‘Eto na 'yon, ito na 'yung araw na hinihintay namin at excited kami pareho," she revealed.

When asked to give her message to her new Kapamilya family, Angel said, "Salamat, salamat po at winelcome ninyo ako dito. Malalim po, e. Abangan n'yo po ako sa The Buzz. Magsasalita po ako sa The Buzz."

Charo Santos-Concio also gave her message to the new addition to the Kapamilya Network. "Angel, welcome to ABS-CBN. Masaya kami na Kapamilya ka na namin. Kami na Kapamilya mo ay looking forward na makatrabaho ka. I wish that you will have fun with all of us."
