After two weeks of Mystica‘s appeal and calling the attention of comedian and television personality, Michael V., has clarified that he does not have the power on who to accept as a member of sitcom, Bubble Gang.
On Sunday, December 2, he tweeted a message, addressing Mystica’s request.
He stated that as much as he want to make other people a part of his shows such as Pepito Manaloto and Bubble Gang, the final decision still lies with the Kapuso network.
The comedian made the statement after almost two weeks of being silent.
In a series of Facebook posts, Mystica has requested the help of Michael V. to make her a mainstay in the gag show.
She wept while sharing her feelings in her videos. The 90s singer said that she thought that Coco Martin would be the key to her comeback in showbiz but the latter was accused of disowning her by killing her character off in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
“Nananawagan po ako kay Michael V. Sana po ampunin niyo na ako. Akala ko kasi aampunin na ako ni Coco Martin pero tinakwil po ako. Hindi lang po ako tinakwil, pinapatay pa ako. Ikaw na lang po ang pag-asa ko para masabi kong may nagmamahal sa akin.”
After the comedian’s, she is now asking actor Dingdong Dantes for help to get her a part in Cain at Abel.
Adding to her latest appeal, she stated that she will never stop asking for help for those who can guide her.
Actor and comedian Michael V (also known as Bitoy), suggested the removal of subtitles in local films. It was after he tweeted about Veronica Velasco’s movie Through Night and Day starring Alessandra de Rossi and Paolo Contis.
He stated that he found the movie better than Kita Kita starring de Rossi and Empoy Marquez. Both films centered on tourist-friendly locations used as backdrops for the romance films.
Michael V said that he only had one request to producers, “HUWAG LAGYAN NG SUBTITLES ANG MOVIES SA LOCAL RELEASE.”
He called the subtitles “distracting” and “preemptive”.
A Twitter user agreed with the comedian, saying that if the movie has subtitles, it should not contain sounds, which made Bitoy reply, “Or i-dub sa Korean“.
Another said that it may be fore the foreigners who want to watch the movie, and Michael V implied that Filipinos are still more important than the foreign viewers.
Other Netizens did not agree with the comedian as the subtitles can also help the deaf or those who are having a hard time hearing.
A certain Maria Fatima shared her boyfriend’s situation wherein subtitles are a big help to his situation.
Comedian and actor Michael V recently conducted a question and answer segment in his vlog titled ‘#BitoyStory 11: “3-in-1”‘.
In one part of the video, he shared his thoughts regarding transferring networks and his goodbye as a regular host of noontime show, Eat Bulaga.
He said that his ultimate goal is actually for exclusive network contracts to disappear so that artists can work and share their craft without limitations.
“Ang pinakaultimate goal ko: ang mawala ang network contract. Hindi sa sinasabi kong hindi maganda yun. Pero mas hindi nalilimitahan yung kakayahan mo pag mayroon kang laya o freedom na gumawa ng project sa kahit anong network. Para ma-expose ka sa ibang style o talent.
“Ultimately, lahat ng artista yun ang gustong mangyari.”
He also explained why he has been out of ‘Eat Bulaga’ after being a regular host for 12 years. Bitoy said that his busy schedule has been one of the main factors for his decision to leave the show.
“Nami-miss ko rin sila siyempre. Mayroong point in my life na sobrang kailangan kong gawin na dati Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays ako, naging Fridays and Saturdays na lang. Naging Saturday na lang, so parang medyo nahihiya na ako.
“Napakaliit na oras na lang ang mailalaan ko for them, nakakahiya namang magtrabaho nang ganun. And besides that time talagang kaputukan nung AlDub.
“I think that was the perfect time for me to do something else, yung mga kailangan kong gawin para hindi nakakahiyang medyo hindi muna pumasok sa Bulaga.”
Michael V clarified that there’s no bad blood between him and ‘Eat Bulaga’ as they do occasionally ask him to host; however, it doesn’t match his schedule most of the time.
“From time to time tinatawagan pa rin ako ng Bulaga to host, it just happens na hindi lang talaga nagtutugma yung schedule, medyo busy pa rin. Pero open yung line namin ng Bulaga, so no problem dun sa part na yun.”
