Tito Sotto blames Romeo Jalosjos for their sudden decision to leave TAPE Inc: “After all these years na sobra sobra ang kinita sa amin,”

Former Senate President and Eat Bulaga host Tito Sotto couldn’t hide his dismay at Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc. chairman Romeo Jalosjos.

In an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal, Sotto revealed that they’re not really planning to resign on May 31, 2023, but the decision of Jalosjos to disallow them to air forced them to announce their departure.

“Biglang pina-cancel ang live! Nagpa-order ng playback daw si Romy. Si Romy, nagpa-issue ng playback,” Sotto said.

It can be recalled that fans of Eat Bulaga were surprised that the Friday episode aired on television was a replayed episode.

The host then asked one of their co-host Maine Mendoza to broadcast their announcement to her 18 million followers.

Sotto stated that they felt disrespected by the gesture made by Jalosjos despite their effort to make Eat Bulaga the most successful noontime show in the country.

After all these years na sobra-sobra ang kinita sa main, hindi man lang kami mabigyan ng [respeto] diba?” he said.

“All of a sudden, bigla mo kaming pakikialaman, 44 years, may naiintindihan ka ba sa production? Makakarating ba kami dito kung hindi kami experts dito?” he added.

As of writing, Jalosjos has yet to give any comment on the statement made by Sotto.

In a previous response, TAPE Inc. took a swipe against Sotto and other Eat Bulaga hosts that the show would continue without them.
