Janine Gutierrez was spotted having dinner with ABS-CBN executives and Kapamilya actor Paulo Avelino recently. This is amid rumors that she will be transferring to ABS-CBN.
Leo Dominguez, the manager of Janine and Paulo, posted the photo of the said dinner.
“Thank you Sir Deo Endrinal for the Congratulatory dinner for Paulo Avelino and Janine Gutierrez,” Leo stated.
Deo Endrinal is Dreamscape Entertainment's head. They were also with Dreamscape creative manager Rondel Lindayag and talent handler Rey Lanada.
Though Leo did not expound on what "congratulatory dinner" they were celebrating, it can be recalled that Janine won the best actress trophy at the recently-concluded FAMAS for Babae at Baril, while Paulo bagged the best actor trophy for Fan Girl in the Metro Manila Film Festival.
Janine's camp has yet to confirm if she is indeed switching networks.
The buzz about Janine transferring to the Kapamilya network started after talent manager Lolit Solis shared via Instagram that the actress did not renew her contract with GMA Artist Center.
“Nakapag tataka kasi na ang balita na lilipat si Janine Gutierrez sa ibang network samantalang ang BF niyang si Rayver Cruz lumipat naman from Channel 2 to GMA7,” Lolit posted on her Instagram page in December 2020.
“Para bang hindi klaro na masaya si Rayver sa takbo ng career niya under Artists Center, samantalang si Janine na under the same management hindi na renew ang kontrata. Malaki siguro dahilan, kaya kailangan maghanap ng bagong bahay si Janine," she wrote.
