Tila big deal for Showbiz Central ang pagi-guest ni Maui Taylor sa show kahapon, August 17. Napapayag din ito na maupo sa "Hot Seat" ng Central Jury at sa bandang huli ay kailangan ni Maui na mamili between Killer Question or Killer Task.
Dahil wala pa si Rufa Mae Quinto sa bansa, si Pia Guanio muna ang nag-interview kay Maui. Mo Twister, who is one of the segment hosts of Central Jury was not yet in the scene; alam ng lahat na may conflict kina Maui at Mo. The two used to work together in DJ Mo's radio show.
Unang tanong nga ni Pia kay Maui, how does she feel now that she's in Mo's territory?
Natatawa naman si Maui nang sumagot. Aniya, "Actually, to tell you honestly, I've been so nervous coming here. They've been telling me to come here live, pero, sabi ko, parang ayoko yata. Kasi, I'm not sure kung okey na kami ni Mo.
"And this is the first time actually that we're seeing each other after one year...as in, after one year," pagbibigay-diin niya.
Pia asked Maui kung ano ba talaga ang pinag-ugatan ng pag-aaway nila ni Mo na nauwi sa pagre-resign niya from the radio show?
"Actually kasi, during that time when I was in radio, I was busy campaigning. So, siyempre dumarating ako ng late. Naiinis siya when it comes to attendance. He was being rude. He was being rude in radio. Pero wala na yun, okey na yun..."
Pero totoo raw ba na may sinabi si Mo na talagang ikinapikon niya?
"Sabi niya, ‘Resign now! I don't care!' Ha-ha-ha! So, I did at hindi na ‘ko pumasok since then."
MEETING MO. Sinagot naman ni Maui si Pia na ready as ever na raw siyang harapin si Mo. Sa puntong yun, tinawag na nga ni Pia si Mo na may dalang bulaklak para kay Maui at pabirong lumuhod pa ito sa harapan ni Maui at nag-sorry habang may ilang segundo rin silang nagyakapan.
Ayon kay Pia, the thing that people do not know about Mo is that, he is actually a sweet person naman, at sinang-ayunan din naman ni Maui.
"Yes, he's sweet, he's just tough about his work."
Sabi ni Mo, na-miss daw niya si Maui, "But you know...you're saying about work ethics ko...pero I have to give credit kay Maui because, hindi talaga ako magiging host dito sa Showbiz Central or as controversial or yung radio show namin hindi magiging ganoon ka-successful because you know, Maui, siya ang unang guest namin sa ‘Forbidden Questions' which is the popular segment. Siya rin ang tumutulong na kumuha ng mga artista na mag-guest sa show. A lot of the success na nangyari sa show, really involves Maui."
BREAKUP WITH BRIAN. After that, Mo asked the first question to Maui as Central Jury host. Ano ba talaga ang reason ng breakup nila ni Brian Revilla? May sinasabi rin kasi na ayaw sa kanya diumano ng Revilla family. Totoo ba ito?
"No, it's not true. Even up to now, kami ni Tita Lani [Mercado], we text each other. And there's a surprise party for our common friend and she was even calling me. Asking me, ‘Where are you na? We will pick her up na...' So, we're really okay."
