Veteran columnist Cristy Fermin said that the legendary trio of noontime show Eat Bulaga, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon gave their demands to the executives of the program.
It can be recalled that millions of Eat Bulaga fans expressed concern because of the rumored rebranding that was set to happen to the show that may result in the removal of the current hosts of the program, including its production team.
According to Fermin, TVJ wanted the current production staff of Eat Bulaga to remain in the show.
“Galing po ito sa aming matinding source, dapat April 17 magkakabalasan na, pero naurong, April 30 magdedesiyon ang TVJ at isa lamang ang dahilan para sila ay maiwan sa ating Eat Bulaga ngayon… Kung walang gagalawin sinuman sa production staff ang bagong mamamahala ng programa,” she said.
“Yun ang kanilang gusto, walang sinuman ang papalitan, aalisin, kailangan intact ang production staff ng Eat Bulaga mula noon hanggang ngayon,” she added.
Fermin believed that the current people working at Eat Bulaga treated each other as family, so they would stop any attempts to separate them.
The columnist revealed that Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) officials, including its chairman Romeo Jalosjos already followed the demands of TVJ.
Fermin also said that the discussion between TVJ and Tape Inc. officials was a long process.
“Mauuwi sa demandahan kapag hindi nasunod ang gusto ng TVJ,” she said.
