Iya Villania is back on GMA Network! Iya Villania first started on GMA-7’s hit teen-oriented show “Click” before transferring to ABS-CBN. Several of Iya’s fans were dismayed with this latest development that they unfollowed her on Twitter and Instagram, and vowed to not watch her again. Iya Villania‘s husband Drew Arellano is a GMA Network mainstay with shows in GMA and GMA News TV. Iya Villania denies that the reason why she switched networks is because of her husband Drew Arellano. “I wouldn’t say he’s a huge part as to why I’ve decided to come back. But of course, he knew all about this. When we were negotiating and when I was coming to terms with coming back here, siya talaga yung kausap ko. For him being the reason why I transferred, no,” Iya said.

In her Instagram account, Iya Villania said: “So… It’s official… Hello mga #Kapuso” and in another, posing with GMA Network big bosses, she said: “The presence of the bosses is definitely what made it real for me awhile ago! Made me feel special! Hahaa! With the Chairman and CEO of gma network – Atty Felipe Gozon, Senior Vice President of GMA Network – Lilybeth Rasonable, Vice President of GMA Entertainment – Marivin Arayata, Vice President for Drama and Entertainment TV – Redgie Magno and Senior Asst. Vice Pres. of GMA Entertainment TV – Gigi Santiago. Thank you for the welcome. It’s nice to be back.”
