In the May 23 episode of It’s Showtime, Anne Curtis announced that she will temporarily leave the show to “pursue her dreams”.
It has been an emotional goodbye for Anne Curtis and her co-hosts. Even the madlang people were tearful when Curtis announced that she will not be seen in the show for a month. She tried to hold back her tears but was unsuccessful at it when it became too overwhelming for her to contain. She gave in to them when her co-hosts, such as Vhong Navarro and Vice Ganda, gave her their messages and support. They assured her of their support in this new journey.
Curtis, meanwhile, was very thankful for the understanding that her home network ABS-CBN has given her. She was also grateful for the support that her Showtime family has shown her, especially her co-hosts, staffs, and even the madlang people.
“Meron po akong gagawin, it’s a very big step for me. It’s something na gusto kong ipursue sa dreams ko. Basta bagong challenge ito sa life ko at para rin naman po sa inyong lahat at sa mga followers ko,” Curtis said.
Curtis promised her fans and madlang people that it will only be for a month. She will be back after a month to continue working with her teleserye Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw with Kris Aquino and Robin Padilla. She will be back also for her No Other Concert National Tour which will stage next at General Santos City.
In the May 23 episode, Curtis did not disclose the details as to why she was leaving the show. However, reports say that she will be in a Hollywood film, Blood Ransom. This is a crime thriller produced by Tectonic Films and directed by Fil-am Francis de la Torre. Curtis will be the only Filipino in this film.
Curtis left the country on May 24.
