JC De Vera Takes Time To Think About Renewal Of Management Contract With Anabelle RamaJC de Vera has decided to take a ‘time-out’ from manager Anabelle Rama. The 27-year old Kapatid actor revealed that he has asked Rama to give him time to think whether he would renew his management contract with the manager or not. De Vera hopes he could arrive to a wise decision in about 2 months to 3 months.
De Vera said he wants to take a greater say in terms of his career and personal life. He clarified that this does not mean that Rama is mingling with his personal affairs. He simply stated that whatever is happening in his career would have obvious and logical repercussions to his personal aspect. He also thinks that he is not getting any younger. That is why he intends to have a concrete plan for the coming five years about how he could manage his finances.
He disclosed that he has to make his career work since he is not a college graduate. He is afraid that if his showbiz career fades, he might not have any other resorts on how to deal with life. But he insisted that he has saved money in all the years that he has worked hard. He disclosed that he is also helping in the financial aspects of his family and other relatives.
Rama as manager
Rama has served as de Vera’s manager for about 10 years now. To this, de Vera is thankful for all the career and personal growth he has generated. He repeatedly clarified that he has always been contented with the way Rama has been handling his career. But there would always come a time when a celebrity would want to try to make it on his own.
De Vera revealed that he first talked with Rama to discuss his career plans in May, after the elections. He disclosed that the discussion went emotional because his manager was caught clueless about his plans. He admitted that Rama turned angry but she remained calm throughout the talk. Rama, he added, made sure she only uttered positive words towards him.
It was Rama who decided to transfer him to TV5 from GMA-7 in 2010. That was after Rama had fallout with then GMA-7 big boss Wilma Galvante, whom according to Rama tried to convince de Vera to drop her (Rama) as a manager. Unfortunately, Galvante has retired from GMA-7 and has signed up with TV5.
De Vera reiterated his loyalty to TV5. He emphasized that he prefers no other network. But he could open his eyes to possibilities if there would be opportunities in GMA-7 or ABS-CBN. De Vera even denied reports that he is sending feelers to return to GMA-7.
He disclosed that his network contract with TV5 is about to end at the same time as his management contract with Rama. Up to now, he is still undecided about his next career move. But he wants to take a few months to sort things out. He could also agree to a per-project arrangement with TV5, which is reportedly aggressively cutting costs these days to trim its losses.
