Regarded as the biggest gathering of stars in local showbiz, the ABS-CBN Ball, over the years, has seen non-Kapamilya stars also walking its red carpet — and this year was no exception.
Notably, three big stars from rival network GMA-7 were seen at the charity event, including one that’s rumored to be finalizing her switch to ABS-CBN.
