Cacai Velasquez-Mitra recently clarified the reason why her celebrity sister Regine Velasquez-Alcasid switched network to ABS-CBN network from its former GMA-7 network. To those people aren’t aware of it, Cacai, aside from being Regine’s sister, also happened to be the business manager of the “Asia’s Songbird.”
In an exclusive tell-all interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), Cacai revealed what led Regine to transfer network from GMA-7 to ABS-CBN during a press conference held inside the Kapamilya headquarter in Quezon City last October 17.

Cacai explained that she and Regine already made up the decision even before the mediation stared between them and the ABS-CBN management.
“Matagal, kasi ang tagal naming nag-decide, e. So, nagpaalam muna kami bago ako nag-mediation [sa ABS-CBN], e.”
Cacai also added that it took many months before they got a chance to have a proper meeting with ABS-CBN management.
“Mga two months or three months ago? Mga ganun. Matagal, medyo matagal-tagal. Actually, yung network contract [sa GMA-7] ended talaga end of January. Medyo matagal na. But meron syang existing contract, ano lang, show contract with Sarap Diva that ended ng mga June. That’s the only time I negotiated [with ABS-CBN].”

Cacai also disclosed the speculation that Regine’s network switch has to with the contract price fee or talent fee. She said that it has really nothing to do with it. She then, later on, revealed that they considered it at first.
“Nothing to do with the TF [talent fee] anymore… eto yung decision niya na nothing to with the TF anymore. It was a factor before but ang talaga sa kanya is to work with other artists, yun talaga.”
In the end, Cacai also confirmed Regine’s statement about her wanting to work and collaborate with other notable Kapamilya stars while she was still in the showbiz limelight. She said that it was the major reason for Regine’s decision.
“Dun talaga kami na-limit kasi, e, na ang tinutukoy nito ay ang dating posisyon ni Regine sa Kapuso network. Kunwari yung pag soap, sinong puwedeng i-partner? Yung ganun ba? In terms of project, nali-limit din. You’re limited to the characters also kasi yung leading man, medyo kapos.”
