“Eat Bulaga!” host Vic Sotto had refuted speculations that co-star Maine Mendoza had been suspended by the management that’s why she was not seen recently on the show. He said all that he knows was that Maine was on a vacation.
On Tuesday, PEP was able to interview the host during the presscon of his movie, “Meant to Beh” as an official entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival on December 25, 2017.
According to Vic, Maine was not suspended from the show but is currently on vacation. Vic emphasized that he was quite sure about it amidst rumors circulating on social media that Maine had been suspended from the show after she had released an open letter to AlDub fans, revealing there isn’t a romantic relationship between her and love team, Alden Richards.
“Definitely not. Ba’t naman isususpende siya ng TAPE, ‘no, ng Eat Bulaga?”
Vic assured that T.A.P.E.’s big boss, Mr. Antonio Tuviera had always respected the opinions and thoughts of each of them in Dabarkads. He also added that he seldom sees Maine in the studio because she was assigned to their “Juan For All, All For Juan” segment so he doesn’t even know what Maine was going through.
Apparently, a few days ago, the AlDub nation was saddened when Maine confessed that she and Alden were just friends and were only a love team. However, this statement was not really something new as both she and Alden had admitted the same thing in their previous interviews before the airing of their show in GMA, “Destined to Be Yours”.
