Kapuso and Cannes 2016 best actress Jaclyn Jose said in response to Kapamilya director Andoy Ranay’s statement about ABS-CBN being able to produce ‘world-class’ content despite being franchise-less, “Hindi po kami basura.”
Ranay on July 10 said, “Aanhin mo ang franchise kung basura naman ‘yung trabaho.”
The actress and the Kapamilya director were long-time friends.
But in Jose’s Instagram post on July 14, she was [obviously] hurt by Ranay after the latter ‘undermined’ the capabilities of other TV networks in producing notable shows.
She posted on her Instagram a photo that says, “I don’t fear the enemy who may attack me, I fear the fake friend who will still hug me.”
In her caption she said this: “Ang lungkot lang… mula pag pasok ng crew set up tent? Hanggang sa pag dating ng mga artista at nagkukumahog to be ready?
“Sa set up ng DOP, set designer, huhugot ang mga artista para ready at all times, maayos trabaho, pagod.
“Pero masaya kasi alam namin nakagawa kami ng relevant scene for a day, pinag-iisipan ng lahat kung ano ba ibibigay per sequence, lahat nagta-trabaho walang hanggang trabaho.
“Lahat ginawa ko, pinagtrabahuhan ko? Pinag-isipan ko, kahit ano pagod ginagawa namin makapagbigay ng magandang programa na hindi (BASURA).”

In the comment section of her post, Jose mentioned a director (obviously Ranay) who said, “May franchise nga, basura naman.”
Although Ranay did not mention any network, in particular, the actress was certain that it was GMA Network that the director was pertaining to in his statement.
“May nagsabi kasi na director na may franchise nga, basura naman.. (I think body of work) wala naman may ibang franchise na halata kundi [GMA] 7.”
She then proceeded to defend her network by sharing how GMA Network is dedicated to making quality shows as well as the dedication of Kapuso staff to their respective jobs.
“Lahat ng nasa production from EP to AP to PA to all the members of production hanggang utility, wardrobe on point.
“Hanggang sa kuwento, artista, director nagpapawis, nagpapakahirap makagawa lang ng napakaganda na panuorin. Pinaghihirapan po namin ang lahat ng lumalabas.”
Despite the numerous violent reactions from members of GMA Network, Ranay was silent about it.
The actress and Ranay first worked together in the 2008 Kapamilya show, Prinsesa ng Banyera. It was then followed by Mundo Mo’y Akin in 2013 under GMA Network.
Their last project was the 2015 Kapuso series, More Than Words.
