Television host Iya Villania said that she’s considering hosting a noontime variety show on GMA Network as long as it’s not titled ‘Eat Bulaga’.
On May 31, 2023, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon announced their departure from TAPE Inc and to Kapuso Network because of the conflict between the hosts of the longest-running noontime show and its executives.
Aside from the legendary trio, most people working for Eat Bulaga, including the other hosts, production team, writers, and cameramen also decided to leave the company.
TAPE then announced that they’re still planning to air Eat Bulaga with new hosts.

Iya has been asked if it’s possible for her to become part of the new Eat Bulaga.
However, the host said that she do not want to become part of the rebranding of the said program.
“Oh my gulay. It’s hard to talk speak. Siguro kung iba ‘yung pangalan ng show. I probably… I would consider,” Iya said.
“Siguro kasi I guess it’s kind of sensitive especially because of the title. And the memories that it holds, the people that it holds so ayon, if ever, I might consider if it wasn’t the title,” she added.
It was reported that TAPE Inc. was planning to hire some artists from Sparkle to replace the former hosts of their show.
