ABS-CBN refuses to allow Jolina to promote ‘Ouija’

There are no good words to say to ABS-CBN after the network refused to accommodate the promo of GMA Films’ "Ouija," starring Judy Ann Santos and Jolina Magdangal.

ABS-CBN reportedly turned down the request of Viva Films producer Veronique del Rosario, who produced "Ouija" with GMA Films. The latter was said to have requested ABS-CBN to allow "Ouija" to promote on only three shows of ABS-CBN, where Jolina will make a guest appearance with Judy Ann.

Jolina was anticipating to promote on ABS-CBN, but felt disappointed that she was not allowed to appear in her erstwhile home network.

Two months ago, ABS-CBN was on the other end making a request to allow Piolo Pascual to promote Star Cinema’s "Paano Kita Iibigin," with Regine Velasquez on GMA 7. Since Regine is a major star on GMA 7, the network accommodated Piolo who guested in several GMA 7 shows throughout the duration of the promo blitz of his film with Regine.

However, now that it’s GMA 7’s turn to ask for a favor, ABS-CBN is not budging.
