Iza Calzado transfers to Kapamilya Network (ABS-CBN); Maxene Magalona is next?

Iza Calzado is officially now with ABS-CBN (Kapamilya Network), ending endless speculations of her network transfer since December 2011.

Why did GMA 7 let go of this very brilliant actress?

Iza Calzado ABS-CBN contract signing

As seen in the photos taken earlier today, Iza Calzado signed a 3-year exclusive contract with ABS-CBN, where she's set to do a teleserye, MMK appearances, a reality TV show (The Biggest Loser Doubles: Pinoy Edition) and a Star Cinema movie with John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo.

Everything's going fast as Iza, after the contract signing, immediately had a meeting with the production team of Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) where she'll star in an episode, her first appearance in the country's longest drama anthology.

It's actually just a comeback for Iza, 'coz her first ever movie was with ABS-CBN/Star Cinema film "Milan" where she won Breakthrough Performance by an Actress trophy at the 2005 Golden Screen Awards.

Iza is just one of the many former Kapuso stars who have transferred to the Kapamilya Network in recent months.

Ahead of her were Janice de Belen, Paulo Avelino, Richard Gomez, Patrick Garcia and Carmina Villaroel.

Marvin Agustin is also returning to ABS-CBN but as a freelancer.

And from what I've known from a source, Maxene Magalona reportedly is also planning to switch networks.

I'm not sure yet if Maxene wants to transfer to ABS-CBN or to TV5, but reportedly, she already wants to be released as talent of GMA 7.

Some Kapamilya and non-Kapamilya stars have posted on Twitter their welcome messages or reaction to Iza as newest Kapamilya.

Bianca Gonzalez (@iamsuperbianca): "Welcome to the family our newest Kapamilya, the beautiful @MissIzaCalzado!"

Carmina Villaroel (@minavillaroel): "Welcome @MissIzaCalzado to the Kapamilya network. Hope to work with you soon. I'm happy for you dear!"

Lea Salonga (@MsLeaSalonga): "Iza moved? Wow, that's an ABS coup."
