Nabulabog ang mga Kapamilya sa tweet ni Gary Valenciano noong Oktubre 15, Biyernes ng hapon.
Tweet ng 57-anyos na mang-aawit: "Hi everyone. Just wanted to see how you’re all doing. Can I ask you say a prayer for me?
"Major decisions I need to make and I hope I make the one that is truly lead by the Spirit. Thanks my friend."
Noong Oktubre 17, Linggo, ay wala sa ASAP Natin ‘To si Gary V, kaya marami ang nag-akalang iiwan na nito ang ABS-CBN at lilipat ng network.
Oktubre 18, Lunes, 12:21 a.m., nag-umpisa ang mga tweet ng maybahay ni Gary V na si Angeli Pangilinan upang linawin ang mga haka-haka.
Isiniwalat ni Angeli na nagka-dengue si Gary kaya um-absent ito sa taping ng ASAP Natin ‘To.
Sa darating na Linggo, Oktubre 24, ay mapapanood na muli si Gary sa longest-running musical-variety show ng bansa.
Kabilang sa tweets ni Angeli kaugnay sa pangamba o kalungkutan ng mga Kapamilya na aalis na si Gary V sa ASAP at mag-oober da bakod.
Narito ang paliwanag ng misis ni Gary:
"Pure Gossip. Where did you get that? He had to make a personal decision not a professional decision. People speculated. Rest assured he will remain in ASAP. We respect the decisions of others to move but he is not led to do so.
"Awwwwww nothing professional about his decision just a private matter. Don’t worry!
"Sometimes we stress over matters that don’t exist hehe no worries it was a private decision not a professional matter but thank you for your concern! No need to worry.
"After what they went through last year he isn’t led to leave of course! Never thought about it. Your heart won’t need to break hehe. We respect those who did and we are sure they prayed about it too.
"Why are you being sad about something that doesn’t exist. Sometimes we worry over things that don’t exist!
"When Gary Valenciano nearly died in 2018 ABS-CBN was there for him! So we love the kapamilya network . We love GMA of course but ASAP is his home. Love you."
Meron ding nagsabing baka sasabak si Gary V sa pulitika.
Sagot ni Angeli, "Never! He never trained for that haha Mayor Gary? Senator Gary? Congressman Gary? President Gary? Hindi yata bagay.
"We must work according to the skill sets God has given us not enter a world we aren’t educated for. Otherwise it will be disastrous and you will miss your destiny."
Nagpasalamat si Angeli sa mga nagdasal para sa asawa niyang si Gary.
Sa nagsabing kawawa ang ABS-CBN sakaling iiwan na ito ni Gary, ang komento ni Angeli, "He asked for prayer not speculation hehe."
Nag-tweet si Angeli ng buod ng isyu o misunderstanding:
"I ended up reading comments of fans and followers of Gary Valenciano when he publicly asked for prayer which he rarely does.
"I was amused & touched that many speculated & assumed he was leaving ABS. It was a private decision he had to make. And no he is not going into politics!
"For the last 18 years Gary Valenciano has been part of the Kapamilya network.
"They have treated him well & saw us thru his medical crisis, even giving him World of Dance after the bypass/cancer challenge. Don’t worry everyone. It was never considered.
"Lastly, for those who have prayed with us & for him we want to thank u. It touched us deeply that hundreds perhaps thousands prayed for him. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat.
"Naramdaman namin ang pagmamahal ninyo at lungkot. Huwag kayong mag-alala. Mananatili siyang Kapamilya."
I never believed that Gary would leave ASAP or ABS -CBN lalo pa’t isa siya sa mga poste na pinagkukunan ng spiritual support ng mga Kapamilya.
I also know that coming from the U.S., nagka-dengue si Gary V, pero ngayong okay na siya, we’ll see him on TV again soon.
Tapos heto ang panibagong hamon sa kanilang pamilya—ang suportahan ang kandidatura ni Kiko Pangilinan bilang vice president ng ating bansa.
Tough challenge ito pero parang nakikita ko na ang pagkakaisa ng Pangilinan family para mapagtagumpayan ito.
