Kalyeserye sweetheart Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza denied rumours that she and Pambansang Bae Alden Richards are leaving the longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga!
In a report from 24 Oras on Thursday (May 5), Maine put to rest speculations that their loveteam will leave Eat Bulaga! and the Kalyeserye, which facilitated their fast track to stardom.
“Walang katotohanan ang kumakalat na chismis. Alam niyo na ‘yun. Alam niyo na ‘yun, hindi ako aalis, (There’s no truth to the rumours spreading. You already know that. You already know that, I am not leaving.)” Maine said.
“Sorry sa mga bashers, hindi ako aalis. Dito lang ako, (Sorry to all the bashers, I am not leaving. I’ll stay.)” she added.
the speculations may have started in an episode of Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye, wherein 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.
The trip to Italy was confirmed in an article posted in the Inquirer. The two Eat Bulaga! Hosts were said to draw large crowds wherever they go, making it difficult for them to shoot here in Manila. Hence, the production people 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 for their naysayers: “Let’s prove them wrong.”
“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,” he added.
The movie project was officially announced during the 9th monthsary celebration of the phenomenal love team on Eat Bulaga last April 16.
