A lot of netizens are asking why Maine Mendoza has not been seen on Eat Bulaga lately, giving rise to speculations that she has been taken out of the noontime show.
However, one of the producers of Eat Bulaga clarified that the schedule of Maine actually prevents her from attending the GMA-7 noontime show.
Malou Choa-Fagar, one of the executives of Television And Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE), posted a group photo of the Eat Bulaga Dabarkads during their recent trip to Petra, Jordan.
Her photo in her Instagram account (@malouchoafagar) had the caption: "Dabarkads at Petra. Missing Maine."
A netizen asked the TAPE executive: (published as is) "Mam malou, pls ibalik nyo na simeng sa eat bulaga mahal na mahal namin sya, for she's being real,miss her so much."
Malou responded by replying:
"we did not take her out. It's her sked that does not permit her to attend the show."
