Since airing their pilot episode on October 11, the sevengirls of Banana Split have been having a grand time with their maleguests. Every week, Roxanne Guinoo, Angelica Panganiban, Valerie Concepcion,Cristine Reyes, Dianne Medina, Princess Ryan, and RR Enriquez have sexy dancenumbers in between the comedy sketches that they do for the show.
So far, they have shown the episodes starring Zanjoe Marudo,John Lloyd Cruz, Gabby Concepcion, and Diether Ocampo. Last week, Anne Curtisand Kristine Hermosa (who was originally part of the show) agreed to banterwith Diether for several sketches. The matinee idol even shot one segmentwherein he "accidentally" walked into the dressing room where the female starswere half-naked.
In keeping with the tradition of Goin' Bananas, theshow also pulls several practical jokes on its guests. In fact, when Gabby wasthe guest on the show, they hired a Sharon Cuneta impersonator to sing a songfor the matinee idol. Gabby gamely faced the impersonator of his ex-wife andsaid, "May sasabihin ako sa 'yo, miss na kita!"
This time, former couple Roxanne and Jake Cuenca will haveto deal with their own issues as they appear on the November 8 episode of BananaSplit. In the trailer of the show aired last Saturday, a teary-eyed Roxannedeclared on air that she did not want to tape the show with ex-beau Jake."Ayoko na sumama dito kasi parang nababastos ako. Direk Bob [Bobot Mortiz],kinausap na kita tungkol dito."
Her Banana Split co-hosts comfort her while a shockedJake could only exclaim, "Seryoso ba ‘to?" The two former lovers have been inthe news recently because of allegations that they had a "violent"confrontation during their show in Guam.
The recent trailer gives rise to the question: did Roxannereally mean what she said about not working with her former boyfriend or is itall just a gag?
