Kapuso actress Marian Rivera is looking forward to resuming her hosting chores on “Eat Bulaga!” after she gives birth to her firstborn child in November.
Marian would not reveal a specific time frame but told Inquirer Lifestyle that she seriously misses the company of co-hosts Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros on “Eat Bulaga!” Until early this year, Marian was part of the “Juan For All, All For Juan” segment of the long-running noontime show on GMA-7.
The four would pick a lucky resident in a random neighborhood and shower him or her with gifts and cash prizes from the show’s sponsors.
Marian said she misses specifically the “Problem Solving” portion where more residents of a specific barangay would line up in front of a mic before the segment hosts and vent their personal problems.
The hosts, in turn, would provide humorous and often ridiculous advice.
Marian says “Juan For All’s” spontaneity is what makes the segment special.
“Hindi puwedeng magpanggap, lahat live, walang script, walang fast forward, walang rewind (There’s no performance, it’s live, no script, no fast forward, no rewind),” the actress notes.
Marian, now five months pregnant, clarifies she would not rejoin “Eat Bulaga!” immediately after giving birth to her and husband Dingdong Dantes’ child later this year.
“Magbe-breastfeed pa ako (I still have to breastfeed),” she says.
