Calzado said it had been hard for her to decide to move to another network. She explained: "Una sa lahat (First of all), I’m grateful for all the opportunity that GMA-7 has given me for almost 10 years. But, I just think that this is time for me to grow, to evolve, to learn. I think it’s just a matter of timing and I’ve always wanted to work again with people from Channel 2. Kasi noong nag-Star Cinema ako for Milan sabi ko one day I’m sure I will work with them again. I guess this is just the way it works. It’s just a business and at some point we will make a certain decision and hopefully without burning bridges."

 

Calzado added that she will really miss people she worked with in her former network, including Eat Bulaga’s main hosts Joey de Leon, Vic Sotto and Senator Tito Sotto. "Isa sa pinakamahirap na desisyon sa akin na iwanan ang Eat Bulaga (One of the hardest decisions I had to make had to do with leaving Eat Bulaga). You can never understand what it is like unless you were part of that family," she said.

 

The report noted: "According to speculations, Calzado is being eyed to host the second season of Pinoy Biggest Loser, replacing Sharon Cuneta.
