Former Eat Bulaga host Ryzza Mae Dizon speaks for the first time after their resignation from Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.)
In an interview with Cristy Fermin on June 8, 2023, Ryzza said that she experienced being required to only attend once a week in Eat Bulaga, a sign that she’s already near to getting removed from the show.
His few appearances mean few talent fees for her, but she said that she never complained about the decision of the executives.
However, Ryzza said that she was surprised after being informed about the plans to remove her completely from Eat Bulaga.
She only got informed about it when Tito Sotto revealed it in an interview.
“Doon lang po sa interview ni Tito Sen ko nalaman na ako po ‘yung gustong alisin, at tanggalin tas palitan po,” said Ryzza. “Ang reaction ko po doon, iyak po ako ng iyak kasi hindi ko po in-expect.”
“Buti nalang po talaga pinaglaban at pinagtanggol po ako ng TVJ kaya sobrang laki ng pasasalamat ko sa kanila,” she added.
It can be recalled that Ryzza Mae has been reportedly being planned to be replaced by a host from the hometown of the Jalosjos family.
“They wanted to remove si Ryzza. Gusto palitan ng ibang bata na taga-Dipolog. Kung isang bata lang naman, okay lang, pero ‘wag nilang aalisin si Ryzza,” Sotto said.
“Kasi ‘yung gusto nilang i-promote na bata, pwede ngang matulungan ni Ryzza ‘yun eh, pwedeng maging ka-tandem, mas madaling sumikat,” he added.
