There have been talks about whether Pambansang Bae Alden Richards and Kalyeserye sweetheart Maine Mendoza will still be seen in their segment in the noontime show Eat Bulaga!
In an episode of Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye, Lola Nidora gave Alden and Divina (the characters played by Alden and Maine) tickets to Italy.
“Alden, Divina hinding-hindi ko pipigilan ang pag-abot ninyo sa inyong mga pangarap,“ Lola Nidora said in the episode, “Kahit alam kong malulungkot kami,”
“Naulungkot ako dahil mawawalay kayo sa akin,” Lola Nidora added.
Divina then asked, “Lola bakit naman po kami mawawalay? Pwede naman po kayo sumama ‘pag nagshoshoot po kami ni Alden.”
“Hindi na naming pang sumama ng lola mo [pertaining to Lola Tinidora],” Lola Nidora replied.
Lola Tinidora then said: “Ate, sige, diretsuhin mo na. Ano ba naman yang sinasabi mo? Bakit naman mawawalay yang mga bata sa atin? Hindi pa naman mag-aasawa ‘yan. Magshoshooting lang.”
Lola Nidora then gave Divina an envelope and explained that it contained tickets to Italy, immediately drawing cheers from the audience.
In an article posted in the Inquirer, the two Eat Bulaga! Hosts are said to draw large crowds wherever they go, making it difficult for them to shoot here in Manila. Hence, the production people were said to have decided to transfer the shoot to Italy.
The breakthrough stars of 2015 are busy with their upcoming film to be released in time for their first anniversary as a love team.
In a past interview, Alden had this to say about their project: “Sa lahat ng naghihintay, sa lahat ng minsan ay nagdududa sa amin ni Maine, at sa lahat ng hindi na makapaghintay, ito na po. Excited na po kami ni Maine na gawin ang proyektong ‘to para sa inyo.”
The movie project was officially announced during the 9th monthsary celebration of the phenomenal love team on Eat Bulaga last April 16.
