Former Eat Bulaga host Wally Bayola revealed his issues with Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.)
In an interview with MJ Marfori, he was asked to stay in Eat Bulaga but still chooses his loyalty over Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
“Kung nasan ang TVJ, andoon ako, tapos at the same time at naramdaman ko na ‘yung mga changes.” Wally said.
He also noticed changes in the show that made him decide to leave, including the absence of Eat Bulaga founding producer Tony Tuviera.
“Hindi na namin nakikita si Mr. T, wala na kaming makasabay na boss na halos kumakain na kasabay namin, na ‘yung nonsense ‘yung pinag-uusapan, alam mo ‘yung pamilya niya talaga kami.. yung nafe-feel mo na alaga ka talaga ng boss mo,” Wally said.
“So nung parang nawala na si Mr. T, nalulungkot ako.” he added.
Wally noticed the changes to the management of Eat Bulaga when he discovered that he was being deducted 30% from his talent fee.
“Akala ko 10% lang ‘yung nababawas sa sweldo ko, ay 30 [percent] pala. Ako personally hindi ako mareklamo talaga eh, tahimik lang ako,” he said.
According to him, all Eat Bulaga host has been deducted 30% from their salary.
As of writing TAPE Inc. has yet to confirm the claims made by Wally.
