Janine Gutierrez Hurriedly Escapes From Presscon Of 'Sherlock Jr.' To Avoid Being Asked About Her Romance With Rayver Cruz

JANINE GUTIERREZ is so nice to accept her role as Irene in “Sherlock Jr.” even if she knows that it’s just a short special participation and her character will die a couple of days after the new series starts this coming Monday. In the story, she and title-roler Ruru Madrid are sweethearts. Both of them are also fearless investigative reporters who are willing to risk their lives in pursuing and seeking the truth in any story assigned to them.

Janine joins a beauty pageant that’s reported to be tainted by corruption and immorality. She doesn’t know that this assignment will put her life in great danger as she unwittingly steps on the toes of a crooked senator, played by Tonton Gutierrez. She eventually ends up dead and Ruru tries to find out who are the culprits, also endangering his own life.

Janine has a pet dog in the story, a golden retriever named Siri who is at first very hostile to Ruru and doesn’t like him to be her master’s boyfriend. But when Janine passes, Ruru inherits the doggie and they eventually form a good tandem in helping each other solve crimes.

Ruru then gets a new love interest in Gabbi Garcia, who plays a contestant in the beauty pageant that Janine joined. Without Ruru knowing it, Gabbi is the illegitimate daughter of Tonton Gutierrez with Sharmaine Arnaiz, the man who killed Janine and this will be one of the biggest conflicts in the story.

At the presscon of “Sherlock Jr.”, two of its big stars were absent. First was Ai Ai de las Alas who plays Ruru’s mom. She is said to be feeling indisposed. Then there’s Gabbi who’s in the hospital due to kidney stones.

Janine was present at the presscon, but she hurriedly made an exit after the cast was introduced to the press. “Tumakas agad at umeskapo dahil ayaw sigurong magpa-interview tungkol kay Rayver Cruz, kasi balitang-balita na sinagot na niya ito, pero ayaw pa lang nilang umamin,” says one writer.
