Jose Manalo has not been seen lately on GMA-7's noontime show, Eat Bulaga.
The comedian has been missing for two weeks from the "Juan For All, All For Juan" segment of EB.
Jose is part of the trio JoWaPao also composed of Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros.
On July 6, Ms. Malou Choa-Fagar, senior vice president and chief operating officer of TAPE Inc., the producer of Eat Bulaga, clarified why Jose had been absent from the show.
"He is on vacation leave," said Ms. Malou in a text message sent to GMA News, debunking speculations that the comedian is suspended from the noontime show.
The TV executive also indicated that Jose is expected to return to Eat Bulaga this July 2017.
