Janelle Quintana was undeniably one of the most talented artists in the country during her time. After her successful exposure on ABS-CBN’s “Star Circle Quest,” she has immediately landed many roles which boosted her career. Unfortunately, her flare didn’t last that long after she was blacklisted by Star Magic.
Recently, the 29-year-old artist has recalled the reason behind this event. According to her, her former late boyfriend, Ram Revilla, has caused her to forcefully leave the limelight.
In 2008, Janelle was supposed to be part of ABS-CBN’s” The Wedding” starring Zanjoe Marudo and Anne Curtis. She said that she was part of the original cast and was happy that she got picked for the role of Zanjoe’s sister.
Unfortunately, during the first day of their shooting, Ram confiscated her phone and turned it off. Janelle admitted that Ram was jealous of her supposed-to-be leading men. She even tried to ask if she could at least notify Star Magic’s Head, Johnny Manahan, but the actor didn’t allow her.
Because of this, Star Magic blacklisted her and she was forced to leave the limelight because of embarrassment. Even though she loves acting, Janelle had no choice but to turn her back from her dreams and focus on her relationship with Ram.
“Gusto ko siya [showbiz career] bago ako tumigil. Na-force lang ako tumigil because of Ramgen. Trinay ko naman after… Minessage ko yung manager ko nun. Pero too late, di ba?Walang chance. Sorry Mr. M! Sorry sa buong production talaga na yun. Sobrang nakakahiya talaga,” she said.
