In line with promoting his latest film “Won’t Last A Day Without You” with Gerald Anderson and Sarah Geronimo, veteran comedian and host Joey De Leon visited the set of the Buzz for the first time last Sunday. She was interviewed by Toni Gonzaga who was a former host in the noontime show “Eat Bulaga” before she transferred to ABS-CBN.
Upon arriving, de Leon gave an “Eat Bulaga” coffee table book to Gonzaga that featured an old photo of Gonzaga with the hosts of the show. This turned Gonzaga emotional.
When de Leon asked why Gonzaga cried, “Dati galit ka sa akin eh. Ngayon di ka na galit sa akin,” she told de Leon. “Hindi, ano ka ba. Di lang tayo nagkaintindihan. Hindi ako nagagalit sa’yo noon. Binibiro lang kita.” De Leon replied
But the veteran comedian admitted that they were sad when Gonzaga left the show.
“Siyempre nalungkot kami nung nawala ka. Pero ngayon, napapanood pa rin naman kita eh,” he said. “O tignan mo naman, nung umalis ka umasenso ka,” he added “Kung di ka lumayas sa ‘Bulaga’ edi baka sa EB Babes ka na.”
Gonzaga on the other hand said that she is thankful to have worked and learned from a showbiz icon like Joey de Leon. “Mabibilang ko ang sarili ko sa isa sa mga pinakamaswerte sa henerasyon na ito na nakatrabaho ang isang Joey de Leon,” she said.
In the Twitter world, viewers were also affected by “reunion” of de Leon and Gonzaga. “Joey de Leon” ranked fifth on the list on Sunday afternoon. Netizens tweeted that they enjoyed the interview wherein they felt emotional and at the same time laughed with de Leon’s antics.
