Two queens unite to give a fully-loaded morning to televiewers on weekdays.
Beauty queen Ruffa Gutierrez and box office queen Ai-Ai delas Alas greet televiewers everyday with their newest informative morning talk show called Ruffa and Ai.
The two TV hosts promise to give an alternative to the morning viewing habits of Pinoy by giving them practical tips on money-making schemes, micro business, resource-saving techniques and other information that are very useful in every day life.
"We're here to give everyone a different putahe naman," Ruffa said in an interview during the press conference of Ruffa and Ai. "Katulad nga ng sabi ko kanina, baka bored na sila [viewers] doon sa kabila, wala na silang ibang choice, at least nandito na kaming dalawa ni Ai-Ai,"
Aside from different featured subjects, people will also see a different Ruffa and Ai-Ai as they go about their stories. Ruffa said that she's going to be really friendly on this show in contrast to her character as Daniella, the kontrabida to Bea Alonzo in I Love Betty La Fea.
In fact, she stated, "Kilala nila [ako] as maldita at sinasampal-sampal si Betty [Bea Alonzo] sa I Love Betty La Fea. This time naman, friendly ako kapag morning. Sa The Buzz naman, medyo cute na glamorosang tsismosa. So, dito naman iba't ibang side ng Ruffa ang makikita nila."
Comedienne Ai-Ai, on the other hand, will try to be more serious in this show. "Ipapakita ko na mayroon naman akong konting talino, marami din naman akong alam, may mga opinion, at saka 'yong magpapakitang-gilas ka lang-masaya naman, happy," she related.
When it comes to chemistry, the two think that they won't have any problem working with each other, since they also work together in I Love Betty La Fea. Aside from this, with the long-running show as their main competitor, the two hosts said that they should team up to give the viewers a good show.
"To have a show na long-running, importante na magkaroon kami ng team effort. Hindi kailangan magsapawan. We'll bring out the best in each other. Hindi kami talagang magsasapawan," said Ruffa.
Ai-Ai quipped, "Makakaroon kami ng team building."
Ruffa even promised to the televiewers, "Ang masasabi lang namin, ang maibibigay naming at maio-offer sa lahat ng tao, kaming dalawa ni Ai-Ai, is we're gonna give our best for the show. Siyempre, lahat ng makakaya namin, ibibigay namin."
During the interview, both were asked what the viewers can expect during their pilot episode to be aired today, February 16. Ai-Ai answered smiling, "Siyempre ie-expect talaga natin na mataas ang rating ng pilot [episode] kasi lahat ng tao curious, e. Ang [challenge] lang is kung masu-sustain namin."
Catch the premiere telecast of Ruffa and Ai this Monday, February 16, at 10:15 in the morning on ABS-CBN.
