Janice de Belen is a Filipina actress, commercial model and television host[1] who was a GMA Network contract artist. She returns to ABS-CBN via Budoy.[2]

She is currently part of ABS-CBN contract actresses.

Early life[edit]

Janice Catherine Yap de Belen was born November 9, 1968 to Philip de Belen and the former Susan Yap. She has a younger sister Gelli who is also an actress. At the age of nine, she became a newscaster for the RPN 9's Newswatch Junior Edition. She got her biggest break from the same channel when she got the lead role in the soap opera Flordeluna a top-rating and phenomenally successful TV soap where she played Flor from 1979 until 1985, when she quit showbiz. The soap continued to air a few more years after Janice left but it started going on a downward trend and never regained its popularity. (It was remade by ABS-CBN in 2007 but based it more closely on the original radio serial by Marcos Navarro Sacol; it was not as well-received as the original show.) Janice re-joined showbiz after a short break, returning to TV with the soap "Jesy" and the early evening variety show "The Big, Big Show" on City-2. She was considered the 80s Teen Drama Princess alongside the late Julie Vega, whose copycat soap "Anna Liza" provided stiff competition to "Flordeluna." The two TV rivals co-starred in a number of 80s films. Janice was also known for her relationship with Aga Muhlach, which produced a love child, and her tumultuous relationship with now ex-husband John Estrada. She returned to the world of TV soap in the 90s with "Andrea Amor" on GMA-7. In 2001-2010, after her separation from Estrada, she hosted the now defunct popular morning talk show "Sis" also on GMA-7 with sister Gelli De Belen and their friend Carmina Villaroel. In 2011-2012, she starred and won public admiration anew in the critically acclaimed TV series "Budoy. She followed it up with another noteworthy performance in the tele-serye Ina, Kapatid, Anak which aired on ABS-CBNs Primetime Bida Block and worldwide through TFC from 2012–13. She co-hosted Showbiz Inside Report as well from February 2012-October 2013 and until recently, was also doing "Buzz ng Bayan" with Boy Abunda.
