Actor-host Keempee de Leon said that he had a quite difficult time to make an appearance on ABS-CBN’s “It’s Showtime” after the producer of the noontime show’s rival “Eat Bulaga” hindered him from doing so.

The son of Eat Bulaga’s pioneer host and comedian Joey de Leon appeared on “It’s Showtime” segment “KapareWho” to be able to promote his upcoming show “Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit”.

However, he said in a press conference that he received a message from Malou Choa-Fagar, a top executive TAPE, Inc., saying that he should not appear on “It’s Showtime” since it airs the same time as “Eat Bulaga”.

“I’d been with ‘Eat Bulaga’ for 14 years and then wala na ako sa kanila for 3 years. Si Tita Malou Choa-Fagar (TAPE executive) tinext niya ako about that at sabi niya kumbaga since katapat ng ‘Eat Bulaga’ parang hindi puwede mag-guest dahil katapat ng ‘Eat Bulaga.’ Sabi niya it’s work ethics naman. Pero ipinaglaban ko. Sabi ko gusto ko mag-guest,” ABS CN News quoted de Leon in a report.

“Sabi ko I’m just being professional to my work, and at the same time lumipat na naman ako. I’m not with them. So gusto ko i-promote ‘yung show. Hindi naman po porke nag-guest ako sa ‘Showtime’ ay kinakalaban ko po sila. It’s about promoting the show ‘Nang Ngumiti Ang Langit,'” he added.

He said that he told Choa-Fagar that his appearance on “It’s Showtime” is nothing personal and it’s solely for work.

The actor last appeared on Eat Bulaga three years ago.
