Bea always a Kapamilya 

    ABS-CBN released a statement last week about the status of actress Bea Alonzo.

    The company announced that Alonzo has signed up as a talent of Shirley Kuan, effectively severing her ties from Star Magic, where she started her career twenty years ago.

    In its statement, ABS-CBN said that they respect Alonzo’s decision and that Alonzo remains to be a Kapamilya artist.

    The full statement appears below en toto:

    “After a series of consultations, Bea Alonzo has decided to pursue her professional goals under a new talent management. Bea has subsequently advised ABS-CBN that she has appointed Ms. Shirley Kuan to represent her as manager.  We respect her decision.

    “ABS-CBN has full confidence that Ms. Kuan, an industry veteran, will manage Bea with the same attention and care that Star Magic has devoted to Bea’s professional career. Star Magic is coordinating with Bea and her new management to ensure a smooth and seamless transition.

    “Even if Bea is no longer with Star Magic, she will always remain a Kapamilya.”
