The wide age gap between Vic Sotto and wife Pauleen Luna suddenly became a topic during the “Juan for All–All for Juan Sugod-Bahay” segment of Eat Bulaga.
On the September 19 episode of the GMA-7 noontime show, Jose Manalo, Paolo Ballesteros, Alden Richards, and Maine Mendoza interviewed “Sugod Bahay” winner Erlinda and Carlos Lumbang.
Jose asked Carlos about his vices and observed that he still looks strong for a 71-year-old man.
The Eat Bulaga host asked Erlinda for her age and she disclosed that she is 47 years old.
This prompted Jose to ask them about their May-December affair.
He turned to Carlos and asked: “Bakit ganun kabata yung asawa mo?”
Quickly, Vic Sotto asked Jose: “Bakit, may problema ba tayo roon?”
Jose responded by covering his face with his towel, saying, “Wala, Bossing.”
Vic continued, “Tinatanong ko lang, parang nagulat ka, e.”
Jose said, “Ano kasi 70, [his wife is] 40...e, dikit lang, e."
Vic smiled as he watched Jose trying to save an awkward situation.
Allan K asked them to think of the situation of Vic's wife, Pauleen Luna.
“Tesbun, 'wag niyong pakialaman,” said Allan, using the slang term tesbun to indicate that Pauleen is "buntis" (pregnant).
Jose then praised Vic by saying that he and Pauleen do not look like they have a 35-year age gap.
"Para kayong sisters," joked Jose. "Parang nauna ka lang na isang taon pinanganak."
Vic said with a smile, "Hindi naman, mga sampu naman."
The 63-year-old comedian married the 28-year-old Pauleen in January 2016.
The actress-TV host is now pregnant with their first child.
