Earlier this week there was a rumor that Jacqueline Bracamontes had been cut from Televisa and today the telenovela actress confirms the news. The "Las Tontas No Van Al Cielo" star had an exclusivity contract with the Mexican network where she was tied to work for only them, but that agreement has now ended. "I want to share with all of you my absolute gratitude to Televisa that has been my home for 17 years and with whom I ended my contract," she wrote on Facebook. "That is where my vocation and passion for what I do started, solidified and developed."

Bracamontes continued: "I thank them for a long list of projects where I have had great teachings, that have opened roads and brought immense satisfaction to my career. It is time to open new doors and consolidate new professional challenges like the release of my new book and my role as an entrepreneur, but with the conviction of always being willing to find ways to get to all of you. I feel blessed of counting with your affection and I hope that wherever destiny takes me, to have the fortune of having all of you be part of that story."

Jacqueline Bracamontes had a vast career in telenovelas at Televisa following her winning the Nuestra Belleza México competition in 2000 and representing her country in the Miss Universe 2001 pageant. Her first roles in melodramas were in small roles in titles like "Entre El Amor y El Odio" and "Cómplices Al Rescate." Her first adult lead role was in 2003 in "Alegrijes y Rebujos," but it wasn't until 2004 when she personified Maribel in "Rubí" where people started taking notice. In the classic soap she played a crippled woman that was befriended by the corrupt Rubí.

Bracamontes followed her role with telenovelas like "Heridas de Amor," "Las Tontas No Van Al Cielo" and "Sortilegio." Her most recent telenovela appearance was in "El Bienamado" in a guest-starring role. After getting married to Martín Fuentes and having two babies, Bracamontes stopped appearing in telenovelas and instead was featured as main host for Season 2 and 3 of "La Voz México."
