Even without confirmation that Jade Picon’s participation in TV Globo’s next nine o’clock soap opera is real, the news that the former BBB would be one of the main characters in “Travessia”, written by Gloria Perez, did not please the Union of Artists from Rio de Janeiro (SATEDRJ), who spoke out on the matter after the rumors intensified.
“I don’t think it’s fair for her to take a space on any television station and we’re going to take the appropriate measures so that doesn’t happen. And the category will support us”, said Hugo Gross, president of the union, in an interview with “Em OFF” .
Jade Picon has no training and experience as an actress and therefore would not have a professional record to act. If TV Globo does not follow all the necessary procedures to have the influencer’s presence in the soap opera, SATED will act to stop the businesswoman from participating in the plot, which will air shortly after the end of “Pantanal”.

Anna Rita Cerqueira also went to social networks and was revolted by the possibility of seeing Jade Picon acting in “Travessia”. On social media, Flaviana’s interpreter in “Malhação” (2014) shared a headline about Jade’s possible participation in Globo’s plot.
She also highlighted an interview in which the influencer claims to have “a desire to venture into the theater”. “To venture into the theater (laughs). In my time, that meant years of study, leafleting to fill the theater and still receiving for the weekend what didn’t pay for going to or coming back to the theater”, she commented.
In another passage, Anna Rita continued mocking the situation: “No comments. Tomorrow I’m going to wake up and become a doctor or, who knows, a lawyer.
