PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Pokwang is ready to hop on the noontime block again this Saturday, May 7, as the newest host of Kapamilya noontime show, Happy Yipee Yehey! Catch the show’s grand welcome episode for Pokwang.
"’Pinaka-excited akong makasama ulit yung ating mga Kapamilya viewers, makatrabaho ulit ang mga staff kasi na-miss ko rin sila,’ said Pokwang. The whole production team of Happy Yipee Yehey! is all set for Pokwang’s comeback, with new ideas and gimmicks. ’Buhos ang effort ng mga staff para mapabongga yung pagbabalik. Bakit ganito ka-bongga? Pero alam ko naman na hindi nila ito ginagawa para sa akin kung hindi para sa lahat ng mga Kapamilya,’ Pokwang added.
"Pokwang is very excited and is looking forward to work with John Estrada and Bianca Manalo for the first time. Even if she feels nervous, the host-comedienne is confident that they will jive well as a group. Recently, the whole Happy Yipee Yehey! family had their team building in Subic, together with Pokwang.
"’Pinag-usapan namin kung paano mapapa-shine yung bawat isa. Di pwedeng isa lang ang mag-shine, para gumanda yung kalalabasan nung show,’ Pokwang answered when asked what happened on the said team building.
"Pokwang got to know some of her co-hosts better. ’Si Kuya John may kakulitan talaga. Pero masaya talaga siyang kasama, mabilis mag-isip. Si Bianca naman, talagang beauty queen, kikay na kikay, talagang magkakasundo kami,’ she said. Randy and Mariel, on the other hand, have worked with Pokwang in the past that’s why she’s very comfortable to be with them and is sure of their good ’chemistry’.
"Meanwhile, Pokwang is proud of her mansion-like new abode. She has a room for her child who already passed away, has a glamorous walk-in closet and a jacuzzi at the roofdeck. Pokwang plans to have a housewarming party this month. She wants to invite her friends from Star Magic and, of course, her best friend, the Queen of All Media Kris Aquino.
"When asked what’s new with her comeback, ’Abangan nila!’ Pokwang answered with a naughty smile.
"Happy Yipee Yehey! is hosted by Randy Santiago, John Estrada, Mariel Rodriguez and Toni Gonzaga, and Bianca Manalo, Melai Cantiveros, John Prats, Jobert, Bentong and Matteo Guidicelli.
"Don’t miss Happy Yipee Yehey!, Mondays through Saturdays, after Showtime on ABS-CBN."
