Maine Mendoza has been involved in issues and rumors lately after she shared an open letter that she wrote for her and her love team partner Alden Richards’ fans.
She received a lot of negative comments because of the letter, which she had already anticipated.
“By the end of this letter I am pretty sure majority of you are going to turn your backs on me and probably hate on me. Pero sabi nga nila, speak the truth even if your voice shakes,” Maine wrote. She has not yet returned to the noontime show “Eat Bulaga” ever since she shared the lengthy open letter on November 26.
There have been speculations that she is suspended from the show, but one of her co-hosts Vic Sotto has already denied the rumors in an interview with the Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP).
When asked if Maine is suspended, Vic answered, “Definitely not. Ba’t naman isususpende siya ng TAPE, ‘no, ng Eat Bulaga? Lalo na kay Mr. Tuviera, respetado niya ‘yang opinyon, pag-iisip, at kung anuman ang pinagdadaanan ng bawat kasama namin sa Dabarkads.”
According to an article from PhilStar.com, Maine’s manager finally revealed the real reason why she has not yet returned to “Eat Bulaga.” “No, Maine is not suspended. Humingi lamang siya ng bakasyon sa akin and since malapit na rin ang Christmas break ng show, pinayagan ko na siya,” Mr. Antonio P. Tuviera stated.
