Veteran columnist Cristy Fermin wanted to know the reaction of former Eat Bulaga host Ruby Rodriguez about the issue surrounding the longest-running noontime show in the Philippines.
In her online program, Cristy remembered how Ruby suddenly left Eat Bulaga and even made a cryptic answer when someone asked her about the reason why she resigned from the show.
One of the issues surrounding Eat Bulaga was the unpaid talent fees by its producer TAPE Inc. to the hosts of the noontime show that includes Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon.
The columnist believed that it was possible that Ruby left because of the issue of unpaid talent fees.
She praised the former television host for not speaking about the issue and just silently exiting Eat Bulaga.
“Hindi natin alam kung bakit nawala si Ruby, [kung] siya ba ay tinanggal o si Ruby ba mismo ang mismong umalis dahil hindi rin siya nababayaran ng talent fee,” Cristy said.
“Maganda lang na hindi nagsalita si Ruby para hindi magulo ‘yung Tape Inc.” she added.
Ruby left Eat Bulaga in 2020 and when asked about the reason of her exit, she only said that netizens should ask the management of Eat Bulaga and not her.
Ruby was currently working in the Philippine Consulate General in Los Angeles, California.
