Former ABS-CBN star Myrtle Sarrosa recently admitted that he was deeply saddened over what had happened to ABS-CBN especially since the network was her home network.
In a YouTube interview, the former Kapamilya actress was asked if what she really feels about the rejected franchise of ABS-CBN since she is a former Kapamilya.
“Napakasakit ate Rose, di ko rin ma explain lalo na sa mga taong mahal na mahal ko don. Nakaka pag worry din for them.”
She mentioned about Kapamilya employees who have lost their jobs during this pandemic which will make life even harder for them.
“Mga taong nawawalan ngayon ng trabaho. Siyempre ang hirap ngayon sa panahon ng pandemic.”
But what does Myrtle do to help former Kapamilya employees? The actress shared that one thing she does is to support their small businesses online. She also hopes that everyone will also do the same, “Yung magagawa ko lang ngayon is support them sa businesses nila online. Im glad na yung kasamahan natin doon ay gumagawa ng online business and I hope yung mga nanood ngayon will also support them.”
Myrtle transferred to GMA Network after being Kapamilya for seven years. On February 21, 2020, the former ABS-CBN actress signed a deal with GMA Network and its talent management arm, GMA Artist Center.
Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara and GMA Artist Center Senior Talent Manager Daryl Zamora were present during her contract signing.
As of now, the new Kapuso recruit is very grateful that she and her family are safe despite the pandemic especially that her parents underwent quarantine.
“I am grateful for na ako and my family are safe despite this pandemic sabi ko nga eh I’m coming from a place na takot na kame baka our family will become COVID – Positive, na-quarantine pa yung parents ko for a few days thank goodness. I’m very grateful.”
