Cristine Reyes's wish has been granted. GMA Network has decided to let her go after expressing her utmost desire to transfer to ABS-CBN, the Kapuso network's rival station.
GMA-7 has released the following statement about Cristine's release from the roster of GMA talents:
"GMA has decided to drop Cristine Reyes from its roster of talents because of her attitude and behavior. She is welcome to leave the network that has a lot more serious artists to assign important projects to and develop into fine, professional actors. Thus being said, GMA network has now closed its doors on Cristine."
Even before Cristine's contract with GMA Artist Center expired, the young actress had been visible in ABS-CBN shows, particularly Wowowee, the noontime show of Willie Revillame, who is being linked to Cristine.
In her past interviews, Cristine was very vocal about her desire to be a Kapamilya. It was reported that ABS-CBN already offered her the lead role in the TV adaptation of Alma Moreno's 1976 movie titled Eva Fonda, 16.
Here are some quotes from Cristine's past interveiws:
"Ako, buo na ang loob ko at kung ano ang gusto ko, yun ang susundin ko.Ang tagal ko nang naghihintay ng project sa GMA, four years na ako sakanila... Alam nilang may offer ako saABS at saka sila nag-offer nang malamang aalis ako."
"Feeling ko, lagi na lang akong support. Sa ABS, lead ang offer.Ayoko na lang magsalita at doon na lang ako sa mas magandang offer atmas naa-appreciate ako. Hindi rin naman ako biglang lilipat nang walangpasabi."
"Mas sasaya ako kung magiging Kapamilya na ako."
Cristine's elder sister, Ara Mina, is also with ABS-CBN now, after years of being with GMA-7.
Cristine is a product of GMA-7's reality-based artista search StarStruck.
