Rumors have been circulating online that the ABS-CBN Sunday noontime variety show, “ASAP” will be undergoing a reformat to accommodate the newly-signed Kapamilya talent, Regine Velasquez.
In an article published by PEP.ph, a reporter disclosed that the allegations about reformatting are true and there will be a re-shuffling of staff and artists who are regularly performing in the said program.
KAMI learned through social media that a lot of netizens accused Regine of being the reason behind the much-talked-about reformat of ASAP.
Here are some of the allegations of netizens:
“Kawawang mga artista ng )ABS-CBN) matatanggalan pa ng trabaho dahil sa ibong mababa ang lipad.”
“Kawawang mga real talent ng (ABS-CBN) dahil lang sa isang floppy bird matatanggal sila nyahaha.”
“Unfair sa ibang regular artists kung maisasakripisyo sila dahil sa isang tao lang. She's not that big deal for me. Just saying.”
Because of this, the Asia’s Songbird decided to not remain silent about the issue as she falsified the rumors that the reformatting is due to her transfer.
She expressed that the management of ABS-CBN and ASAP have been thinking of revising the program since last year even before she signed a contract with the network.
"They've been thinking of reformatting the show, nagkataon lang na dumating ako at isasabay nila sa pagpasok ko,” the veteran singer quipped.
"They've been thinking about it talaga noon pa, last year pa. Kaya lang naghahanap sila siguro ng magandang panahon. Since I am here, I am coming, sinabay na nila,” she added.
Talking about the new ASAP that she will be in, Regine admitted that it will be a challenge for her to be one of the casts of the soon-to-be-reformatted noontime show.
She also emphasized and named the regular Kapamilya artists who will still be included in the show.
"Challenging but also exciting. Sarah [Geronimo] will be there,” the singer disclosed.
"Daniel Padilla, Piolo Pascual will be there. Everyone will still be there pero may main...” she added.
In a previous article by KAMI, the promising celebrity bravely disclosed which network for her is the “number one” in the Philippines.
Regine, or Regina Encarnacion Ansong Velasquez in real life, was born on April 22, 1970. She was born in Tondo, Manila. She married singer-songwriter Ogie Alcasid in December 2010 and they were granted their first child, Nathaniel James.
