Iza Calzado excited to work with Venus Raj in "Beauty Queen"

GMA 7's upcoming primetime series "Beauty Queen" held its story conference yesterday, September 15, 2010, almost a month before its
expected airing on October 18.

Separated at birth? Maria Isadora Calzado & Maria Venus Raj

Present in the story-con of the teleserye formerly titled "Koronang
Papel" were the cast led by Iza Calzado but not Venus Raj, who's
reportedly joining the show.

On Twitter, Iza has already expressed excitement over the possibility of working with Venus and she said, "Just came from Beauty Queen story conference in GMA! So excited to hear that Venus Raj is joining our cast! Hope you'll like our series."

Also part of the cast is Binibining Pilipinas-World 2008 Maggie Wilson but she isn't sure if Venus is really joining them in the show. "I'm not sure about Venus Raj...she wasn't at the story con earlier... :)"
said Maggie on her Twitter Page.

Tim Yap meanwhile told his Twitter followers that Venus Raj has already made a deal with GMA 7 through Jonas Gaffud's Mercator Model and Artist Management. "Venus Raj finally signs with GMA 7 through Mercator Agency. She'll be in "Beauty Queen" with @MissIzaCalzado." But he deleted that particular tweet minutes later.

I also texted someone close to Venus if it's true that the beauty queen has already closed a deal with GMA and he simply replied, "BPCI ang nagdecide sa mga contracts nya. Binibining Pilipinas is under GMA di ba?"

So, what happened to her supposed entry on ABS-CBN's Magkaribal?

Last September 4, Boy Abunda already confirmed it on The Buzz. "Excited na 'ko sa pagpasok niya sa Magkaribal," he said.

But it seems like she's going in a show that will rival Magkaribal.

If it's indeed true that Venus has signed a deal with the Kapuso, most
of the people who voted on Mykiru's Poll will feel a major, major

I asked them what they like for Venus and a big percentage (71.2%) of the total 493 votes came from people who want her to be a Kapamilya
while only 109 people or 22.11% would like Venus as a Kapuso.

Twenty-two (22) voters or 4.46% meanwhile would not mind if she goes to Kapuso or Kapamilya or any network. As for the remaining 11 votes or 2.23%, they believe Venus is better off as Kapatid or a TV5 artist.

Thank you guys for participating in the poll!
