Several showbiz insiders have been speculating that Ogie Alcasid, one of the prime talents of GMA-7, will be transferring soon to a rival station.

Based from what he told the PEP.ph during the press conference for his 25th anniversary concert, it looks like he really is headed toward that direction, hinting at a move to TV5.

"Si MVP kasi, hindi iba sa akin,” he said, referring to Manny V. Pangilinan, the business mogul who counts TV5 among his many properties. “Kaibigan ko ang turing ko sa kanya. Hindi naman lingid sa atin na ang TV 5, kailangan ng tulong. Talagang it’s not doing very well. So, kapag nagsalita si MVP ng, 'Tulungan mo naman ako,' mahirap tanggihan (MVP is a dear friend. We all know that TV5 needs help. It’s really not doing very well. So when MVP asks you to help him, it’s difficult to say no.).”

Despite admitting that he had already informed GMA-7 CEO Felipe Gozon about his plans to leave, he also clarified that he has not yet signed a contract with the TV5, nor has he discussed the shows he will appear on should he push through with this decision. Ogie also kept mum about the rumors that his wife, Regine Velasquez, will be transferring with him, saying that they have separate careers.

“I cannot answer that although asawa ko siya. Kapag career niya, hindi ko ginagalaw (I cannot answer that although she’s my wife. I don’t meddle in her career)," he said.

On a related note, PEP.ph has reported that the Songbird recently responded to a fan who told Ogie via Instagram to not bring his wife along with him to TV5 lest her fan base decrease.

Sino ba kasi ang nagsabi na lilipat ako ha may alam ka ba na hindi ko alam?” she replied. “Malaki po ang pasasalamat ko sa inyong lahat sa patuloy ninyong pag suporta sa akin, but as you can see I don't appreciate being told what to do or being patronized (Who said that I’m transferring stations? Do you know something I don’t? I’m very grateful to all of you for your continued support, but as you can see, I don’t appreciate being told what to do or being patronized.).”

At higit sa lahat matutuwa ba ako na iniinsulto nyo ang asawa ko?? Kung ikaw ako matutuwa ka ba (And above all, should I be happy that you’re insulting my husband? If you were in my place, would you take it lightly?)?” she continued.

She later apologized for her emotional rant through a message she posted the following day.“Pasensya na po kayo sa madamdamin kong las [sic] post (I apologize for my emotional post),” she wrote. “I don't understand why some of you would alway blame my husband for anything and everything.”
