- Singer Regine Velasquez gave some details about the rivalry between teleseryes in GMA and ABS-CBN
- She specifically talked about the Kapuso shows that went head-to-head with Ang Probinsyano
- Regine expressed that her former network tried its best to go against the Kapamilya series
Newly-signed Kapamilya artist Regine Velasquez did not become hesitant in talking about the Kapuso network going head-to-head with primetime teleserye, “Ang Probinsyano.”
KAMI learned that the topic was brought up when the Asia’s Songbird quipped that she can also appear as a guest star in the said top-rating drama series.
Regine initially expressed that she often gets amused by the humility of Coco Martin and she is happy that it seems to her that the actor is a shy-type celebrity.
"Bakit hindi? Kaya ko naman yun! Ano ba gagawin ko doon, action star ba ako doon?" the veteran singer uttered.
"Si Coco, nasa-starstruck din ako kay Coco, ang pogi, ang cute niya, at saka ang gentleman. He’s such a gentleman and parang mahiyain siya. Katuwa!" she added.
When Regine was still a GMA-7 artist, two of her shows were pitted against the most-watched teleserye and she knows how hard it is to go against the Kapamilya show.
She did Poor Senorita in 2016 and Mulawin versus Ravena in 2017, all in the same air time as Ang Probinsyano.
The promising singer mocked that she already died in her goddess role but Coco in his Cardo character is still alive.
"Namatay na kami lahat dun! Yung sa soap ko na yun, goddess ako doon, e. Namatay ako, e!” she explained.
"Goddess nga ako. Buhay pa rin si Coco, e!" she added.
As of now, ten Kapuso shows already attempted to have a higher rating than Ang Probinsyano including Alden Richards’ Victor Magtanggol.
Regine, however, acknowledged that her former network tried its best in coming up with drama series that could be pitted best against the Coco Martin show.
"Nag-try naman kami. We tried our best,” she said.
In a previous article by KAMI, the singer exposed to public the three big projects allotted for her in the Kapamilya network.
Regine, or Regina Encarnacion Ansong Velasquez in real life, was born on April 22, 1970. She is the husband of then-Kapuso star Ogie Alcasid. They also have one adorable kid named Nathaniel James.
