Just Wait for My Moment


Whenever the contract of a network talent is about to lapse and the end date is nearing with no offer coming from the network in sight, expect stories of the talent allegedly sending feelers to a rival network. When confronted with issues of changing networks, such talent would usually deny the story, while keeping everyone in the dark until secret negotiations are finalized.

Transferring to another network or management could result from three factors. First, the rival network could have offered a package that would be hard to resist. Very few talents would admit that the choice is based on monetary conditions, as most would reason out that they would have the opportunity to grow. They do not want to create the impression that they are materialistic, which, has veracity, actually. To make offers lucrative, networks present guaranteed contracts, which assure the talent continuous payment regardless if the talent has a project or not.

Second, talents transfer because their present network is no longer interested in their services. This factor is manifested through not casting the talent in any show or relegating the talent to supporting roles. Subtlety, the talent could be included in shows that are not on primetime. There is a certain pride and bragging rights when someone has a program shown during the prime block as opposed to a show aired in the afternoon.

Finally, a talent makes the move because of dissatisfaction that has resulted in a feeling of being taken for granted. In the case of Underrated Talent (UT), she realized that despite being loyal to her network, she was slowly being eased out. There was a time when UT was one of two talents being groomed as the next big stars of their network. Unlike the Other Celebrity (OC), UT did not try her luck in another station. When OC returned, the network gambled on her and UT, and the investment worked.

As soon as the network realized the goldmine of UT and OC, the two were given projects, which slowly showed that UT was the better actress. However, she was suddenly given more mature roles that alienated her young fans. By contrast, OC was given projects that made sure her young fans could relate to. Then, UT suddenly disappeared and said that she wanted to give school a try. While she was out of the limelight, the network gave new female talents the opportunity to shine. Thus, when UT returned, the stage was too crowded.

Adding to her discomfort was the lack of support when it came to a major social event of the network. While other female talents were taken care of by big names in the fashion industry, UT did not even have a gown to wear. Thus, she opted to skip this major event, and her absence was noticed.

Feeling uneasy with the way she was being treated, UT confided to her Secret Boyfriend (SB), who advised her to make the big move if she was no longer happy. This advice would benefit both of them, as they could not reveal their relationship if they stayed in one network. Admission that they are together would affect the image of SB. In addition, UT would now have a new manager to handle negotiations for projects. Moreover, leaving her network means she would no longer have to wait for her turn after projects have been given to OC and the other hot female leads.

The wisdom of the decision of UT will only be seen in the next few months. For now, her decision surprised many, but she stood firm despite all the criticisms. Next year, UT should attempt to remind her network that she should not have been taken for granted.

    1. Yuppp! She very well deserves the limelight more than OC when it comes to acting. But she doesnt have the charisma sa masa, they say.

    2. Ngayon ko lang nalaman na umalis na siya sa S.

    3. She has a charisma naman. Mali lang yung packaging na binigay sa kanya. Masyadong ginawang matured for her age. Pero among the famale stars sa current network nya nq kasing age bracket nya, she is the better actress. I hope ahe transfers to the other network, and I hope the oyher network give her more roles that would showcase her talents

    1. True. In fairness to the network, she was given lead roles in movies, but it didn't translate to box-office hits naman. So, who's at fault? Marketing and promotions ng network, OA kaya.

      Wala talaga kasi siyang x-factor. Overhyped pa na "magaling" siya kahit average lang naman. Hindi naman porke't may luha, ipit mouth, sigaw or lisik mata, acting na agad.

      Also, she looks old kasi for her age then walang personality for the audience, fans and etc to be curious about. Nadala lang siya when si Secret BF ang kasama. Otherwise, wala rin.

    2. tama, waley talagang mass appeal. ang tanong, magkatuluyan kaya sila ng SB niya? kung magpakasal sila papano na lang yun eh breadwinner siya? established na financially si SB

    1. Sana piliin ni J yung offer na magbibigay sa kanya ng trabaho for the long run dahil sya lang ang breadwinner ng pamilya nila. Wag na syang umasa na pakakasalan sya ni C anytime soon, may special arrangement yun sa iba.

      Delete
    2. And yung special arrangement na yon ang kapalit si stability if being a big star .

      Delete
    3. kaya maraming projects si SB ay dahil sa arrangement na iyan. sorry but OA siya umakting at isa lang ang kayang role. though mabait siya at humble, in fernez. ewan kung makakakalas pa si SB sa deal ba iyan...

  5. Magaling umarte si UT kaya lang she looks old for her age. I think nakasama rin that she had some procedures done to her body because she was getting big after her debut. Hope she and SB marry soon! Matanda na so SB!

    1. That's true pero the description fits J,K and C.
      Underrated,nag-mature roles when she was younger, nag-aral tapos bumalik.
      OC- K na homegrown ng current network na kasabayan ni J. She had projects with another network tapos bumalik sa current. Sumikat.
      SB- lt ni J dati

    1. Distracting rin tignan sa kanya ang mouthpiece niya when speaking her lines sa mga scenes. Dead eyes rin. No masa appeal, no fans. Flop rin yung movies niya, di ba?

      Kasalanan pa rin ng network? I don't think so. Walang RoI sa kanya sa totoo lang.

      Delete
  20. Magaling naman to, natabunan lang ng mga pa-cute na pabebeng mga babae dun na puro OOTD at kung anu-anong kaartehan sa katawan ang inaatupag kesa sa mag workshop. Lipat ka nalang kung di ka na pinapahalagahan.

  21. J is one of the best actresses of her generation! She will definitely have more longetivity than K. The network should have supported her more! Sad.

    ReplyDelete
  22. She's good far better than her other contemporary but there are several other actresses out there who are easier on the eyes and can also bring the acting chops, and translate those to ratings and box office earnings, which she's failed to do. Yes she is leading in the slot given to her but let's be real, talents aim for primetime slots, not the dead hours of the afternoon. I think she was paired too early with an older leading man (SB) that after their pairing there was no other roles for her to play but mother roles.

  24. She's very talented kinulang din ang network ng support sa kaniya because they concentrated sa mga loveteams..focus sila sa mga bagong lipat din. Ang sa bakuran nila na loyal nalimutan

  25. Anong network paglilipatan ni J? KaH or KaS?

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is sad news. Pero I don't think it's right to blame the management because they've given J lots of projects to prove her marketability. Wala lang talaga siyang appeal sa masa.

  27. Sobrang kinikilig ako na secret boyfriend na talaga nya si C. <3 <3 <3

  28. sayang naman, magaling syang actress kaso, nung pinair sya kay SB dun na nag start medyo nag mature na sya kahit ang bata pa nya. ngayun khit knino sya i pair wala na tlagang appeal. sad kung lilipat sya ng network, bka magkalabuan na din sila ni SB

  29. Sayang naman ..hayy fan pa namn nya ako . I feel sorry for J, pero goodluck at sanay gabayan sya ni God sa career nya :-(

  30. if this is really J, ngaun plang excited na ako 2 see her in another network. 100% viewer na kmi dto. dati kming kaF. i like J.ang galing nya. & w/inspiration from C, lalo cyang ggaling. she will b welcomed w/ open arms. she's dfinitely a good addition, an asset.

    ReplyDelete
  31. she is very talented at napakahusay niya. mas binigyang pansin lang yung mga LTs na paulit-ulit na lang. na parang halos sa kanila na lang umiikot. may LT kasi si UT na sobrang daming fans na hanggang ngayon nandiyan pa rin kaso di nman binigyang halaga ng management. peaceyow

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sa totoo lang yung mga controversial na artista ang mas sikat ngayon dahil palagi silang pinaguusapan. Tignan nyo yung isa ding J, waley talent sa acting pero maraming projects. #notfairbuttrue

  33. ang pa bebe na sinasabi nyo isa sa magaling umarte.J and K lang magaling umarte

  34. Dapat pala ibang strategy ginawa ni j.naging open at bulgar at papansin para sumikat. Hindi uubra ang maging private. Katulad ng ibang walang talent. #sad ako 😣
