Amy Perez leaves TV5

Amid network changes and management shakeups, Amy Perez has decided to leave TV5, her home studio for over three years.
According to the network’s official statement obtained by Yahoo Philippines OMG!, both parties “have mutually agreed to part ways.”
It added, “TV5 respects the decision of Ms. Perez to leave the Network due to personal reasons. She had been a valuable talent of TV5. We wish her well and the best of luck in all her endeavors.”
The 44-year-old TV host left ABS-CBN in 2010 to be one of the earliest stars to gamble on the then new TV player. Amy’s successful hosting stint on TV5 proved to be worth gambling on as her show “Face to Face” became the most-watched program on its time slot during its heyday.
The daytime reality-talk show, however, faced tougher competition from ABS-CBN and GMA. In July 2013, Amy reportedly resigned from the show amid issues of misunderstanding with the production. The network later clarified that the show's already scheduled for termination and is expected to be replaced by something with the  same format—still with Amy as host, but this time with Gelli De Belen, her pinch-hitter when she went on maternity leave in July 2012.

Beau joining her?

Her long-time partner, then DZMM reporter Carlo Castillo, eventually followed Amy on TV5. His fate in the TV5 newsroom is still unknown.
Meanwhile, Amy hinted that she might jump to another network pretty soon.
"'Di na kami nag renew ni Tito Boy (Abunda). We both feel na it's time to graduate  na and view our other options. Thankful kami na may offer pero wala pang final kung saan. Will finish pa my duties for Good Morning Club till Oct 11," she told Yahoo Philippines OMG!
The mother of three has been one of TV5’s prized talents—hosting six Kapatid shows in the past three years including “Face to Face, its spin-off drama “Untold Stories Mula sa Face to Face,” showbiz-oriented talk shows “Juicy” and “Ang Latest” and morning shows “Sapul sa Singko” and “Good Morning Club” (GMC).
Except for GMC, all the shows are already off the air.
Before  “Face to Face,” Amy hosted “Diretsahan,” a show with a similar format in ABC-5, TV5’s former broadcast name.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
