MANILA -- Actress Marian Rivera said there's no reason for her not to renew her exclusive contract with the Kapuso station.

 

The 28-year-actress old inked another three-year deal with GMA-7. She attended the contract signing with manager Rams David.

"Napakasarap ng pakiramdam ko na pumirma ulit ako sa GMA, bilang alam naman natin na malaki ang utang na loob ko sa kanila kasi kung hindi sa kanila, walang Marian Rivera," she said.

Marian confirmed there were offers from other stations, but at the end of the day, she couldn't think of any reason why she should leave the network.

"Lahat naman ng bagay pinag-iisipan pero hindi yung sobrang daming beses dahil wala akong ibang pupuntahan kundi GMA. Dito ako, Kapuso ako at dito nagsimula ang lahat," Rivera said.

"Walang dahilan para umalis ako sa GMA. Isa lang ang gusto kong maramdaman ang pagmamahal nila at binigay nila sa akin yun. Ramdam ko yun. Wala akong naiisip na dahilan or sitwasyon na pinabayaan nila ako. All the way naman may project ako at andiyan sila," she added.

The contract signing was led by GMA Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe Gozon, and President and COO Gilberto Duavit. Executive Vice President Felipe Yalong, GMA Films President Annette Gozon-Abrogar, Entertainment Head Lilybeth Resonable, Entertainment Vice Presidents Marivin Arayata and Redgie Magno, AVP for Corporate Communications Angel Javier and AVP for Alternative Productions Gigi Lara completed the GMA Network Inc. entourage during the event.

The actress did not expect such support and love from her GMA bosses.

Rivera said, "Nakakatuwa kasi hindi ko in-expect na lahat sila ay pupunta dito. Dun pa lang sa thought na andito silang lahat, sobrang blessed and thankful ako. Lagi kong sasabihin na proud akong maging Kapuso."

Atty. Gozon said everyone made sure to attend the contract signing of their "Queen.”

"Talagang mahal namin siya, hindi lang bilang artista kundi bilang tao din. Mabait si Marian. Malayo pa ang mararating ni Marian... malayong malayo pa. Magaganda ang mga naka plan para sa kanyan ngayon," Gozon said.

Duavit then added that in the next three years, expect an evolution on the actress' career. They lined-up a lot of shows for her, one of which is set to air on primetime block before this year ends.

 

Dingdong's contract renewal

Meanwhile, the actress clarified that her decision, whether to stay or leave, doesn't affect the pending renewal of long-time boyfriend Dingdong Dantes' negotiations with GMA-7.

She clarified that Dingong and his manager, Perry Lansigan, will decide on the matter.

"Partner ko si Dong pero may sarili siyang pag-iisip and respeto na din sa manager niya, hindi ko pa alam kung anong desisyon nila. Hindi ko alam kung magkasama or magkahiwalay. Basta ako, okay ako sa GMA,” Rivera disclosed.

She added, "Hindi naman ibig sabihin na andito si Marian Rivera, kailangan andito din si Dingdong. May kanya-kanya din kaming priorities at gustong gawin. Tingan na lang natin. Masaya siya para sa akin kasi love naman ako ng GMA. Inalagaan naman talaga din nila."

The couple left the country Sunday to celebrate Marian's 29th birthday.

Marian shared it was a surprise gift from Dingdong and she has no idea where she will celebrate her big day.

"Hindi ko alam kung saan niya ako isu-surpise. Hindi ko alam kung kami lang, kung tinawagan niya si Mama ko or si Papa. Wala talaga akong idea. Nagbigay lang sya ng list ng mga dadalhin ko, like swimsuit and formal dress. Hiningi niya lang din yung passport ko," the actress said.
