Maine Mendoza revealed that she decided to postpone the planning of her wedding to Arjo Atayde to prioritize the Eat Bulaga issue.
During the Dabarkads press conference on TV5, Maine said that she wanted to join her colleagues who just resigned from TAPE Inc. on May 31, 2023.
While it was already known that Maine was supposed to take a break from Eat Bulaga, she decided to be actively present again beside her Dabarkads.
“Actually naka-leave na talaga ko for the wedding planning so naka alot na ‘yung June and July ko for wedding planning pero ayon siyempre hindi ko naman pwedeng iwan sila sa mga ganto. Tulad nga ng sabi ko, kung anong laban nila, laban din namin,” Maine said.
It was also reported that TAPE Inc. offered hefty amount of money to her just to stay to Eat Bulaga, but she chose her loyalty to Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon.
“Kasi for me no amount of money can buy for my established values, self-respect and loyalty.” she stated.
Meanwhile, she’s also hoping for Alden Richards to appear in their new show on TV5.
“Hindi ko alam kung paano ang mangyayari pero si Alden naman ay legit Dabarkads. Hopefully, hindi ko pa rin alam din e, pero hopefully makasama namin siya dito sa show namin sa TV5,” she said.
Alden and Maine became a phenomenon in 2015 after they were paired in their own segment called ‘Kalyeserye’.
The two gained millions of fans worldwide and even made history for generating 40,706,392 tweets during the ‘Tamang Panahon’ event in Philippine Arena.
However, the two eventually got separated to focus on their own careers, disappointing some of their fans.
