GMA-7 Network (Kapuso) Nemesis Sarah Lahbati | Photos

The latest news on Sarah Lahbati on her war with GMA Network is that both sides have pressed charges against each other. GMA Films president Atty. Annette Gozon-Abrogar have filed a libel case using her tweets against the said station.

The Kapuso network also filed a "breach of contract" case against her, which was prompted by the actress' earlier walk out in a shoot. Showbiz circles are now rife with stories that she has an attitude problem.

We won't take sides on this issue/scandal. For sure, spin doctors from both camps are on overdrive especially since she is managed by controversial and fiery talent manager Anabelle Rama (yep, that's actor Richard Guitierrez mom). He also happens to be Sarah's boyfriend, who recently denied pregnancy rumors against her.

Rival network (ABS-CBN) probably is laughing all the way to the bank with this latest scandal in GMA-7's camp.

So then, let us forget the brouhaha and feature her profile and hot photos. After all, she is really a pretty Pinay mestiza even without makeup (see below image).

Miss Sarah Alzol Lahbati is a Swiss-Filipino actress who was born on October 9, 1993 in Geneva, Switzerland. She was "discovered" by way of the Kapuso network's reality talent show StarStruck in 2009. She became a finalist of said contest.

Through the years (since 2010), she was casted in various Kapuso TV shows, such as Love Bug Presents: Exchange Of Hearts, Little Star, Maynila: Bestfriends & A Girl, Time Of My Life, Spooky Nights Presents: Sumpa, Ruben Marcelino's Kokak, Makapiling Kang Muli (where her kissing scene with boyfriend Richard Gutierrez sent sparks in showbiz gossip columns).

She was set to star in Indio (the network's latest telenovela as Ynaguinid. It was said (source: that she did not want to wear her costume headress in said program.

She also starred in various movies by Regal and GMA Films such as White House (2011), Boy Pick-Up: The Movie (2012) and Seduction (depends on  the resolution of the current scandal and her trip to Switzerland).

She has appeared in the following movies: Sabi Mo Mahal Mo Ako Wala ng Bawian and Ibulong Mo sa Diyos 2  in 1997, Sige Subukan Mo and  Hangga't Kaya Kong Lumaban in 1998), Sumigaw Ka Hanggang Gusto Mo, Kanang kanay: Ituro Mo, Itutumba Ko and Ikaw Lamang in 1999, Tugatog and Baliktaran in 2000, Red Diaries, Sisid , Hubog in 2001, Kilabot at Kembot, Jologs, Bahid in 2002, Pinay Pie in 2003 and Mourning Girls in 2006.
