Veteran columnist Lolit Solis believed it would be bad news if ever the rumors about the offer received by Willie Revillame to host Eat Bulaga was true.
In her social media post, Solis said she couldn’t stop laughing at the news about the alleged offer of Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.), former chairman to Revillame.
According to her, even Revillame, known as one of the most popular television hosts in the country, cannot replace the original hosts of Eat Bulaga, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
“Walang puwede tumalo sa Eat Bulaga o kila Tito at Vic Sotto plus Joey de Leon. Wala puwede pumalit sa tatlo. Hindi kakayanin ng kahit sino ang humor at charms ng Tito, Vic and Joey.” Lolit said.
She believed that the people spreading the rumors about the ‘rebranding’ of Eat Bulaga were people close to Revillame who only wanted him to become a noontime show host again.
Solis also said that Revillame’s popularity was fading already.
“Kaya huwag ng pilitin ng mga taong malapit kay Willie na gamitin sa press release na ito ang magiging magandang kapalit kung sakali man tutoo na lilipat ang Eat Bulaga. Kahit ano sabihin, iba narin ang lagay ng popularity ni Willie. Hindi na ito kasing sikat ng dati, hindi na ganuon ka init sa viewers.” she stated.
“Kaya hindi magiging maganda replacement ng Tito. Vic and Joey. Mahina ang magiging dating. Mas mabuti pa nga siguro na itry ng GMA7 ang mga bago nilang talents para sa isang noontime show. Malay mo mas maganda pa ang maging dating nito. Why not ? Bongga pa di ba!” she added.
As of writing, Tape Inc. has yet to release a statement regarding the rumors.
