‘Tahanang Pinakamasaya’ host Paolo Contis admitted that he was surprised by the decision made by the Marikina RTC against Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Incorporated, which formerly handled Eat Bulaga.
It can be recalled that the court ordered TAPE Inc. on December 5 to stop using the Eat Bulaga title following the copyright infringement complaint filed by its original hosts, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
TAPE Inc. was also not allowed to use Eat Bulaga’s jingle nor air any of its past episodes.
On her social media page, Paolo’s manager, Lolit Solis, said that her talent was still absorbing the said decision.
“Parang pressured siya sa nangyayari sa Eat Bulaga dahil nga sa titulo na parang pinag aagawan,” said Lolit. “Malaki ang nagawa ng noontime show kay Paolo Contis. Iyon premium niya as a host parang naging sinlaki ng TVJ. Naging malakas ang energy niya, nagkaruon ng disiplina na gumising ng maaga, at financially very stable siya dahil sa additional income niya,”
“Saka naging mas healthy ang competion ng maging 3 ang noontime program. Now pagalingan sila ng production numbers, inviting of guests, at medyo binabawasan na ang pag absent ng mga main hosts,” she added.
Paolo was known for being vocal on the issue of TVJ vs. TAPE.
