Janice De Belen feels there is no need to for her to be friends or even work with ex-husband John Estrada.
Ex-couple Janice De Belen and John Estrada crossed paths during the ABS-CBN Trade Launch at Sofitel last September 1. John, together with fellow Happy Yipee Yehey!
stars Randy Santiago and Rico J. Puno, were the hosts of the said event, while Janice was part of the cast of Budoy
, an upcoming teleserye
top-billed by Gerald Anderson. When it came time to introduce the cast of Budoy
on stage in front of guest advertisers, Randy and Rico kept on teasing John about his ex-wife.
John tried his best to put on a fun show by cracking jokes with Janice, but the actress remained quiet until the time she stepped down the stage. When cornered by reporters and asked what she felt about what happened, she only said, “Normal lang. Wala lang
. Okay lang ‘yun. Bakit naman ako ninerbyusin?
Now that Janice and John are both Kapamilya, it’s more likely that they would run into each other and maybe even work together. But for the actress, there’s no need for her to work together with her ex-husband. Janice explained, “I’ve said this before. Okay naman kami. Hindi na siguro kailangang magkatrabaho pa kami
. Civilized kami.
She just went to express her excitement over being a Kapamilya after a very long time and doing a teleserye
again. “It feels good. May mga naging
friends din ako dito
, like sina
Ms. Linggit Tan. Part of the excitement about Budoy
I guess is seeing me again on ABS-CBN. Also sobrang maganda ‘yung kwento kaya
I’m very proud to be a part of this project. I was so surprised to see how good Gerald is as an actor. He’s also a nice guy.”
On the other hand, John tried to avoid interviews regarding meeting his ex, but went on to give a brief answer. “Masaya naman
. I’m very happy na ang isang
Janice De Belen ay isa nang Kapamilya
The actor/TV host said that he respects if Janice doesn’t want to work with him on any project in ABS-CBN. “I would be happy kung magkakaroon ng pagkakataon na magkatrabaho kami. Pero kung ayaw niya, ‘wag na nating pilitin
. I respect that.”
