- He said there’s no definite date yet but it could be as early as the last week of August
- He emphasized that management is the only one who knows exactly when
Paolo Ballesteros will return to “Eat Bulaga” soon.
This was confirmed by his “Eat Bulaga” co-host Wally Bayola on Sunday, August 21, during The PEP List Year 3 Awards.
Bayola told Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) that there’s no definite date yet on when Ballesteros will return to “Eat Bulaga” but most probably, it would be in the last week of August or the first week of September.
“Kasi ang makakaalam lang po niyan, makakapagsabi lang niyan, makakapag-confirm, e, management lang po,” he added.
[Because the only one who knows and can confirm that is the management.]
Ballesteros, Bayola and Jose Manalo are popularly known for portraying “De Explorer Sisters”; Lola Nidora (Wally), Lola Tinidora (Jose) and Lola Tidora (Paolo) in Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye”.
Bayola admitted that he got used on having Ballesteros around and the show is indeed different without him.
Ballesteros was reportedly suspended from “Eat Bulaga” as a part of the top-rating noontime show’s disciplinary action after he ranted on social media about the alleged incompetence of the production staff during an event.
Reports said Ballesteros was scheduled to host the Ad Summit Pilipinas 2016, held in Subic Bay Freeport Zone last March 9-12, but he has not been seen at the dinner event that his “Eat Bulaga” co-hosts Vic Sotto, Wally Bayola, Jose Manalo, Anjo Yllana, Allan K., Pia Guanio, Ruby Rodriguez, Pauleen Luna and Ryzza Mae Dizon attended.
During the set visit for his upcoming movie “Bakit Lahat Ng Guwapo May Boyfriend” last July, he said that he had finished the fourth month of his suspension and he’s supposed to return to “Eat Bulaga” in September.
He is really hoping that he’d be able to return to the noontime show after finishing the sixth month of his suspension.
He described his current status as: “Bakasyon, bakasyon na may time limit.”
