MANILA, Philippines – More Eat Bulaga mainstays have left production company TAPE, following the resignation of the noontime show’s longtime main hosts, Vic Sotto, Tito Sotto, and Joey de Leon.

Eat Bulaga co-host and Vic’s wife Pauleen Luna-Sotto posted a photo of the Eat Bulaga team’s resignation letter on her Instagram stories on Thursday, June 1.

The letter she posted was addressed to TAPE president and CEO Romeo Jalosjos Jr. and dated Wednesday, May 31. 

Dahil po sa mga nangyari, kami po ay magpapaalam na rin sa TAPE Inc., simula ngayong araw, May 31, 2023 (Because of what happened, we are also leaveing TAPE Inc., starting today, May 31, 2023),” it read.

The letter was signed by Eat Bulaga co-hosts Paolo Ballesteros, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Ryan Agoncillo, Ryzza Mae Dizon, and Allan K.

In her Instagram Story, Pauleen noted that the show’s writers, sales team, production crew, and cameramen also left the production company.

Tito, Vic, and Joey, collectively known as TVJ, announced their departure from TAPE in the middle of a rerun of an old episode of the show on Wednesday.

Their departure came in light of alleged internal conflicts between the hosts and TVJ over various issues, including the retirement  of Eat Bulaga producer Tony Tuviera, and P30 million owed to TVJ. 

Eat Bulaga meant to celebrate its 44th anniversary in July. –

    For so many years in the Philippines , the show Eat Bulaga has entertained millions of Filipinos, rich or poor in the cities, towns and barrios where they bring their show everyday. They bring laughter and prizes to this people ,who are mostly poor and lots of entertainment to those who watch their show on TV. As the saying goes ; Laughter Is The Best Medicine. I strongly believe in This. So, Let me explain that the Phrase “ All For Juan And Juan For All” Is simply for laughter only. The original saying is “ All For One And One For All”. It does not really deserve so much attention that resulted in the demise of a show where many people , artists, comedians, cinematographers, etc. lost their jobs.
