He was also among the topics of Cristy Fermin last May. In one of the episodes of Cristy Ferminute, revealed that a source told her the talent fee of Wally Bayola and Jose Manalo, which is supposed to be paid by TAPE, have also been delayed. This was before all the hosts and co-hosts of "Eat Bulaga" under GMA7 resigned and the issue about TAPE's alleged delayed payments of TFs was at its height. Cristy also said her source went on to say this is why the two would often do "lagare" in terms of work just to earn a living. The delayed in TF payments by TAPE was first divulged by Tito Sotto in an earlier interview.
