Richard Gutierrez Should Plan His Next Moves Well Now That His Career Is In A State Of Fllux

WITH DINGDONG Dantes proclaimed as the Kapuso Network’s Primetime King, where does this place his erstwhile rival Richard Gutierrez? When he guested in his twin brother’s new show on TV5 that premiered last Saturday, “Showbiz Police”, Richard revealed that as early as March, in a meeting with GMA-7 executives, he already told them that he will not renew his contract with them.

He added that he will always be grateful to the Kapuso network for the 11 years he spent with them and all the projects he did with them. But he felt it’s time to move on. The question is where? Since Raymond and Ruffa are both with TV5, there’s a big possibility he’ll also be moving here, but Richard says he’s not ready to reveal his new career plans yet.

He said he could very well just go to America and study there but he doesn’t want to leave the country and the fans who continue to support him here. As a freelancer, he also wants to try producing his own projects.

Richard should plan his next moves really well, especially now that his career is in a state of flux. Many people feel that his current girlfriend is more like an albatross on his neck. “Mabigat dalhin,” says one writer, “lalo ngayon kalaban niya ang GMA pati sa korte. Nadamay tuloy si Richard. Siya siguro ang main reason why Richard chose not to renew his contract with GMA.”

Richard said he’ll continue to be by Sarah’s side and support her with what she’s currently going through. “Miss na miss na nga niya ang pag-aartista,” he added.

We admire Richard’s faithfulness to his inamorata and here’s wishing her legal troubles will soon be resolved so that they can both move on in their respective careers.
