Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa revealed that she received a guesting offer from Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) to appear on Eat Bulaga, but she decided to refuse it.
In an interview with Abante, MJ admitted that while the offer from TAPE Inc. was hard to resist, her loyalty to her former colleagues prevailed.
She also decided not to get involved in the issue surrounding former Eat Bulaga hosts and TAPE.
“May mga offer. Nahirapan talaga kaming mag-make ng decision, kasi work is work. No matter what happen, meron tayong mga bills na dapat bayaran araw-araw,” MJ said.
“Lalo na if you’re a breadwinner, maraming nakasandal sa ‘yo. Napakahirap to say no to something na alam mong stable income. But at the same time, iba rin ang pagmamahal sa mga taong naka-trabaho mo na. So medyo, ang hirap-hirap to make a decision. But I chose to stay away for whatever is happening muna.” she added.
It can be recalled that MJ became part of Eat Bulaga’s ‘4M’, together with Maja Salvador, Main Mendoza, and Miles Ocampo.
MJ was currently a guest host of TV5’s newest noontime show, E.A.T, and hosting the ‘Sugod Bahay’ segment with Paolo Ballesteros, Wally Bayola, and Zombie.
