Coco Martin holds no grudge against GMA Network for discrediting him in his MMFF 2018 entry promo

  • Lolit Solis said that she doesn’t think GMA Network is petty enough to ban Coco Martin’s name in Kapuso shows.
  • Martin replied that he has high regard toward the network and he holding a grudge against the network is not in his capacity.

In a recent Instagram post by entertainment personality Lolit Solis, defended GMA Network, expressing her thoughts about the assumptions of Netizens that Coco Martin is banned from being mentioned in any Kapuso shows.

She said that she doesn’t believe that the network is that petty to actually prohibit the stars from saying the actor’s name and maybe Maine Mendoza just had a “moment” and forgot to mention her other co-star in the movie Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles.

“Imposible na hindi pagbigyan ng GMA si Coco dahil alam din ng lahat na sa 7 nag-umpisa ang career ni Coco Martin. Huwag na natin bigyan malisya na hindi siya nabanggit, baka may big pakulo para sa announcement ng naturang movie, malay natin, wait lang tayo.”

Hindi naman ako maniniwala sa balitang 'ban' si Coco Martin sa GMA. Hindi naman siguro ganun ka-petty na ang co star ni Bossing Vic Sotto sa filmfest movie niya hindi puwedeng banggitin ang pangalan. Baka naman may moment lang si Maine Mendoza kaya nalimutan banggitin ang pangalan ni Coco nang mag-promote siya. Imposible na hindi pagbigyan ng GMA si Coco dahil alam din ng lahat na sa 7 nag-umpisa ang career ni Coco Martin. Huwag na natin bigyan malisya na hindi siya nabanggit, baka may big pakulo para sa announcement ng naturang movie, malay natin, wait lang tayo. Sa bait ni Coco, sure ako mag-melt ang puso ng mga executives ng GMA, sila Lilybeth, Redgie, at Gigi. Naku, excited iyan na personal makita si Coco Martin sa studio ng 7 noh, bet ko iyan. #lolitkulit #instatalk #71naako @mr.cocomartin

Martin then replied to the post, saying that he understood and he has high respect toward  GMA Network especially that it’s the Network that first opened its doors for him.

“Napakabait po nila sakin kaya wla pong problema sakin yon at kahit kaylan hindi ako mag tatampo sa kanila.”

He added that he’s also grateful for having the chance to work with Vic Sotto and Maine Mendoza.

Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles will be out on December 25 as an entry for the Metro Manila Film Festival.

Eat Bulaga to move out of Broadway Centrum

Eat Bulaga to move out of Broadway Centrum

[mashshare]
  • Eat Bulaga hinted about a possible studio transfer.
  • They are said to move to a four-story building in Cainta, Rizal after using the Broadway Centrum for nearly four decades.

Is Eat Bulaga finally transferring to its new home?

A few viewers of GMA-7‘s daily noontime show have noticed what seemed to be hints that the program will move into a brand new studio.

A short video was shown in the middle of the program after the segment Boom. There, they introduced a kid named Amboy which invited his two friends to play.

It was seen that Amboy was holding a newspaper named Balita Pilipinas that contained the faces of Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon. “4 na dekada ng saya” was also written.

The kid made the newspaper into a paper airplane and made it fly in the air. A sign was seen containing the words, “Truckrental para sa lipat-bahay”.

Amboy and his friends then went to a store wherein they were greeted by the owner that said, “Bulaga!”

When the children reached the playground, on of his friends said, “Ang saya naman dito, Amboy.

“Kahit nasaan tayo, masaya.” Amboy replied.

It was no secret that the show has been planning to move out of the said venue and are planning to move in a four-story building in Cainta, Rizal named APT Studios.

Eat Bulaga has been in numerous studios before, including Broadcast City, Celebrity Sports Plaza, ABS-CBN Broadcasting Center, and in Broadway Centrum, wherein the show has stayed for almost 40 years.

Maine Mendoza answers netizen regarding “user” issue between her and Alden Richards

Maine Mendoza answers netizen regarding “user” issue between her and Alden Richards

[mashshare]
  • Maine Mendoza clarified the issue regarding her and Alden Richards’ current relationship.
  • She said that she’s not forcing anyone to support her and people have the freedom to decide on their own.

Maine Mendoza contradicted the rumors that she and love team partner Alden Richards are just using each other so that AlDub fans will still support their individual projects.

AlDub became a phenomenon in 2015 after they started interacting with each other in Eat Bulaga’s ‘Kalye Serye’ segment.

The issue of “using each other” was brought to Maine’s attention after Twitter user @PaaNgMaichard warned Maine’s fans to stop calling Alden a ‘user’ as both of them still have solo projects to promote in the near future.

Mga mulat wag nyong tawaging user si Alden. Tandaan nyo may movie at lipstick pa si Meng.

Kasi kapag si Meng naman ang dumikit kay Alden, keri nyo bang tawagin sya ng mga BN na user?

Babalik din sa inyo yang mga sinasabi nyo eh

Maine took notice of the tweet and replied that she’s not forcing anyone to support her projects.

Sorry may nag tag lang sa akin, pero…. movie and lipstick? Support o hindi, nasa sa inyo naman yun, wala naman pong pilitan kung ayaw.

Alden and Maine continue to be co-hosts in the noontime show, however, both also have their own projects.

Alden is currently starring in GMA 7’s Victor Magtanggol with love interests Janine Gutierrez at Andrea Torres while Maine is part of the cast of the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Jack Em Popoy: The PulisCredibles with Coco Martin and Vic Sotto.

40 Facts About Eat Bulaga’s 40 Years on TV

40 Facts About Eat Bulaga’s 40 Years on TV

[mashshare]
  • Eat Bulaga celebrates its four decades on the Philippine television.
  • It is the longest-running noontime variety show in the country.

Eat Bulaga has reached its 40 years on TV and it is already a huge achievement for the books; considering these days, the people’s attention span is shorter, and it has become a struggle for television programs to come up with new ideas that will hook their viewers, maintain the numbers and even attract more for years. Most TV shows last on air for at least 10 years.

Among other noontime variety shows, only Eat Bulaga! can be considered as legendary. Since it started in 1979, this year–it is turning 40. For four decades, the show has made so many memories that have entertained viewers in and out of the country.

In celebration of the show’s anniversary, here are 40 facts that you may or may not know about:

1. The main trio of Eat Bulaga started their television careers with their then onscreen rivals, Apo Hiking Society‘s Danny Javier, Jim Paredes, and Buboy Garrovillo.

2. The groups made a debut in the 1970s gag show titled ‘Okay Lang’ which aired in the number one TV network at that time, Channel 13.  It was on television from 1973 to 1974.

3. The trio was first offered their own noontime show on RPN Channel 9, however, they declined. At that time, they were not yet ready to compete against another show ‘Student Canteen’, who was also produced by Program Philippines, Inc., the producer of their show, ‘Discorama’.

4. ‘Eat Bulaga!’ was coined by Joey de Leon from the popular child’s play, ‘It Bulaga’ or peek-a-boo. The word ‘it’ was replaced by ‘eat’ since its timeslot is lunchtime.

5. In its early beginnings, the show wasn’t exactly a success at first. The show’s average rating was only 5.3% while their competitor’s is 57.6%.

6. Along with the struggle with its ratings, the show also struggled financially. Their advertising rates went down to Php750 when the standard rate at that time was Php2,000. It led them to entertain movie trailers, which paid less than regular commercials.

7. Since the PBA Games and Eat Bulaga! had the same producer at that time, the income from the games were used to save the noontime show. The show, however, continued to fail financially and it came to the point that even the hosts were not paid for their talent fees.

8. When there was finally enough cash to pay the hosts at least half of their monthly salary, it was said that the production coordinator accidentally left the money in a cab.

9. After Eat Bulaga!‘s first anniversary, the staff were given a three-month ultimatum by Romy Jalosjos, who was the show’s producer. He warned them to improve the ratings or else the show will be cancelled.

10. Luckily, the show’s contest ‘Mr. Macho’ became a hit and Eat Bulaga! won with the ratings for the first time. The said segment-contest was a sponsored that intended to promote the movie ‘You Can’t Stop the Music’ starring the Village People. Eat Bulaga’s ratings rose up to 31%, which was two points higher than Student Canteen‘s.

11. After getting fired from Student Canteen, Coney Reyes‘s transfered to Eat Bulaga! It coincided with the launch of the Domsat (domestic satellite). With the new technology, provinces were finally able to watch the show simultaneously with Metro Manila viewers.

12. Eat Bulaga! had a mascot named Bikoy Baboy.

13. GMA Network launched a new rival show named Launch Date and it nearly kicked-out Eat Bulaga! from the top spot. The show was hosted by Randy Santiago. But Eat Bulaga! remained number one, thanks to a segment hosted by a little Aiza Seguerra.

14.  As an act of gratitude, TAPE, Inc. continued to put Aiza Seguerra under its payroll during the years that the child star was no longer in the noontime show. Eat Bulaga! also got Aiza a college plan which she later used to enroll at the UST College of Music.

15. Eat Bulaga transfered to ABS-CBN in 1989 and it helped the network’s ratings reach an all-time high. The noontime show was packaged with three other programs such as Aguila, Coney Reyes on Camera, and Okay Ka, Fairy Ko.

20. Samantha Lopez, the popular round girl in the numbers game Rambulaga’, was christened by Joey de Leon as “Grasya”. He reasoned that her role of carrying the winning numbers “brought in a lot of graces of heaven” to the lucky winners, hence the nickname.

21. Before Jose Manalo became a comedian and one of the show’s hosts, he initially worked as the show’s floor director.

22. The Broadway Centrum was supposed to be Eat Bulaga!‘s temporary studio, however, it has since become the show’s official home.

25.  Helen Vela was the show’s eternal pinch-hitter for almost 10 years. Her career in Eat Bulaga! started when she cheered, as part of the audience, her friend Coney Reyes when the latter was welcomed as the new female co-host in 1982. She hosted the Kilometrico quiz segment in the early 80s.

INSENSITIVE? “Eat Bulaga!” host Maine Mendoza clarifies reaction towards ‘Sugod Bahay’ winner whose son just died

INSENSITIVE? “Eat Bulaga!” host Maine Mendoza clarifies reaction towards ‘Sugod Bahay’ winner whose son just died

[mashshare]
  • Netizens call out Maine Mendoza’s behavior towards crying Sugod Bahay winner.
  • Maine Mendoza called out for ‘making fun’ of ‘Sugod Bahay’ winner whose son just died
  • The host clarifies that they were not aware of the winner’s situation as they didn’t understand her at that time.

In the June 18 episode of Eat Bulaga!Juan For All, All For One winner Leny Feliciano was being interviewed by hosts Maine Mendoza, Paolo Ballesteros, and Jose Manalo.

The segment was conducted at Calumpit, Bulacan.

The winner became very emotional as she started talking to the host and Jose stated “Leny, umiiyak ka ka kaagad, e. Natutuwa ka kaya ka umiiyak. Ayan na naman.” which Leny agreed with.

“Opo. Sobra pong tuwa dahil mapapalibing ko na ang anak ko. Makakabayad pa po sa funeraria.”

By that time, Joey de Leon asked Maine to repeat what Leny has said and the host started imitating the emotional mumbling of the winner.

Vic Sotto suggested that the staff give Leny some water to calm her down a bit. At that time, Maine, who was unaware of the situation and mimicked the winner’s mumbling once again.

A few netizens reacted at said behavior and labeled it as “insensitive” as if the host is making fun of the winner’s situation.

“I find this part so insensitive knowing that the sugod bahay winner’s son/daughter(not sure) just recently died and they still continue this sick joke of replicating her emotions on what she felt during that moment. You guys are so inconsiderate. @mainedcm @AngPoetNyo #JoseManalo”

Maine then replied to one Twitter user saying that they didn’t know the situation at first as they can’t understand what she was saying and they condole the death of Leny’s child.

“Nakikiramay po kami kay ate. Hindi po namin alam nung una na ganun pala ang pinagdadaanan niya bilang hindi po namin naintindihan yung una niyang sinabi.”

Watch the full clip below:

While the inconsolable Feliciano was speaking, Mendoza can be seen turning to the camera and making mocking expressions with her face.

Sen. Tito Sotto denies whitewashing Pepsi Paloma rape case

Sen. Tito Sotto denies whitewashing Pepsi Paloma rape case

[mashshare]

Senator Tito Sotto has denied that he is guilty of whitewashing the Pepsi Paloma rape case. The rape case remains controversial even after three decades since Pepsi Paloma’s death.

Pepsi Paloma, one of the “softdrink beauties” who was a sexy star in the ’80s, once filed a rape case against Eat Bulaga! hosts Vic Sotto, Joey De Leon, and Richie D’Horsie, which, Senator Tito Sotto claimed was a gimmick.

Sen. Sotto said, “Hindi totoo ‘yan. Gimik yan ni Rey dela Cruz. (That isn’t true. That was Rey Dela Cruz’s gimmick.)” This was what the senator replied when he was asked by Alvin Elchico during his guest appearance on DZMM’s election special “Ikaw na ba? Ang senador para sa pamilyang Pilipino.”

Dela Cruz was the late talent manager of Paloma and the other softdrink beauties. Paloma, who was a budding star at that time, was allegedly drugged by Sotto, De Leon, and D’Horsie before she was gang raped.

READ: Sen. Tito Sotto finally speaks up about the Pepsi Paloma issue; says, “It was a Gimmick.”

In an article written by Rina Jimenez-David which was published by Inquirer in 2012, she said that, “Paloma eventually dropped the charges after she was allegedly visited by one of the trio who said he had only talked with her, but only after placing a pistol on the table in front of her.”

Sen. Sotto said that he was not involved in the whitewashing of Paloma’s case as he only became a vice mayor in 1988 while the incident happened in 1982.

“1982 ho yung kwentong iyun eh. So, wala ho akong pakialam sa isyung iyan nung araw. Para ho sa kaalaman ng lahat… gimik ho ni Rey dela Cruz (Paloma’s manager) ‘yun. Hindi ho totoo ‘yun. Pinagtangkaan nilang magkaso kasi tinira sila ng libel nina Vic (Sotto) at Joey (De Leon). Idinemanda sila ng libel kaya pinagtangkaan nilang balikan ng kaso,” ,Sen. Sotto further said.

(The issue was in 1982 so I was not involved in that issue at that time, for everyone’s information. That was a gimmick by Rey dela Cruz. That isn’t true. They tried to file a case against Vic and Joey because they filed a libel case against Dela Cruz.)

As of this writing, Sen. Sotto is still at the top spot in the senatorial surveys.
