A week after being released from prison for drug possession, former “Tanging Yaman” star CJ Ramos was blessed with a second chance by being part of the primetime series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
The actor shared the good news on his Instagram last August 14, along with a photo of him with lead star Coco Martin.
“Second chance. Salamat, Boss Coco,” he wrote.
CJ was arrested in a buy-bust operation earlier this month and was released after his bail was lowered to P100,000.
In an interview on “Rated K” last August 6, the former child star shared that depression over his career was what started his drug addiction.
“Pagdating ko ng high school, medyo tumatamlay na po 'yung karera ko nun… First time ko po nakaramdam ng hirap na ganun, eh. Dahil nung bata pa po ako nagtatrabaho po ako eh. Hindi ganoon ang buhay ko. Doon na po nag-umpisa ang paggamit ko ng ilegal na droga,” he said.
CJ also starred in the 1996 film “Ang TV The Movie: The Adarna Adventure.”
