Many viewers of “Eat Bulaga” got disappointed when Michael V left the program.
KAMI learned that the veteran comedian has opened up about his decision to leave the show.
In an interview with PEP.ph, Michael said that he was starting to get embarrassed by his lack of time for the show due to his other projects.
The comedian stated that he left the show at the perfect time – when Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza’s love team was at its peak – since he was not needed anymore.
"Nami-miss ko rin sila siyempre. Mayroong point in my life na sobrang kailangan kong gawin na dati Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays ako, naging Fridays and Saturdays na lang. Naging Saturday na lang, so parang medyo nahihiya na ako.
"Napakaliit na oras na lang ang mailalaan ko for them, nakakahiya namang magtrabaho nang ganun. And besides that time talagang kaputukan nung AlDub.
"I think that was the perfect time for me to do something else, yung mga kailangan kong gawin para hindi nakakahiyang medyo hindi muna pumasok sa [Eat] Bulaga,” Michael told PEP.ph.
He added that he is still friends with the Eat Bulaga family.
“From time to time tinatawagan pa rin ako ng Bulaga to host, it just happens na hindi lang talaga nagtutugma yung schedule, medyo busy pa rin. Pero open yung line namin ng [Eat] Bulaga, so no problem dun sa part na yun,” he explained.
