GMA Senior Vice President Atty. Annette Gozon-Valdes vowed to support Television and Production Exponents Inc. after the resignation of all Eat Bulaga hosts on May 31, 2023.
It can be recalled that Eat Bulaga hosts Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon Paolo Ballesteros, Jose Manalo, Maine Mendoza, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Wally Bayola, Ryan Agoncillo, and Allan K already parted ways with the production company owned by Romeo Jalosjos.
Gozon-Valdes said that they’re offering the talents of GMA to replace the original hosts of the longest-running noontime show to keep it on air.
“Kung wala namang conflict and pumapayag yung talents why not ‘di ba? It’s really a separate business kung mabibigyan naman ng trabaho yung talents namin why not and we’ve been doing this even before magka falling out years and years back,” the executive said.
“Tulad ni Alden (Richards) galing siya sa Sparkle. Tulad ni Bianca (Manalo) and Ruru(Madrid) talagang we provide talents,” she added.
While Alden was part of Sparkle, netizens were waiting if he would agree to join the rebranded version of Eat Bulaga as he already declared his loyalty to TVJ.
Netizens were also calling to boycott the said show as a support to the legendary trio and other original hosts.
