“I have stayed here for two decades. Maraming maraming salamat po sa tiwalang ibinigay niyo sa akin and for taking good care of me,” she said.

She also thanked the director, staff, and crew of “Sarap Diva” who have been with her for the past six years.

“‘Yung six years na yun, like I said andami kong natutunan. Nakilala ko lahat. And dito po sa Sarap Diva, talagang family na po kami,” she said.

We understand her decision to join her husband and we wish her well as she pursues other opportunities outside GMA Network,” Senior Vice President for GMA Entertainment Content Group Lilybeth Rasonable said in a statement.
