Angeline Quinto denied the claims that Regine Velasquez caused many ASAP artists, including herself, to be on “semi-regular” status.
After the re-formatting of ASAP, many viewers quickly noticed that many of their beloved artists were no longer performing regularly on the Sunday variety show.
Among those talents is Angeline Quinto. She said they are now called “semi-regular artists.”
Many netizens were quick to point that the cause was Regine Velasquez’s arrival to the show.
Angeline, a known avid fan of Regine, defended her idol.
She said, “Alam naman ng lahat na sobrang mahal ko si Miss Reg. Si Ms. Reg, hindi man yun nagsasalita, pero deep inside, masakit sa kanya yun, at huwag naman ganoon.”
Angeline continued, “Hindi naman kasalanan ni Miss Reg kung hindi na regular ang iba. Marami pa ring artists ang ASAP.”
“Siguro lang, yung ibang nakasanayan ng mga tao, hindi na nila nakikita regularly,” she added.
Angeline who said she’s been with ASAP since 2011 admitted that she took her time to reflect on her new status on ASAP.
She realized that maybe the show was looking for something new and she accepted the changes.
Angeline said, “Sa showbiz talaga, hindi natin alam kung hanggang kailan.”
“Ako, sa pagiging honest lang din sa part ng trabaho namin, feeling ko, ang ASAP, gusto talaga nilang mag-try ng iba’t iba, e.
Asked if she was hurt with the management’s decision, Angeline said she doesn’t want to hold any grudges.
The singer said, “Nasaktan? Hindi naman, pero siyempre maraming tanong. Pero tinanggap ko iyon nang bukal sa loob ko.”
“Ayoko kasi ng nagkakaroon ng sama ng loob. Ayoko niyan, e, mahihirapan tayo pag ganoon.”
“Nag-pray lang ako, ‘Lord, kung ano po ang gusto Ninyo sa akin, bahala na po Kayo,’” Angeline said.
