After a long holiday hiatus to the US following her controversial open letter to fans, Maine Mendoza has finally returned to our TV screens on “Eat Bulaga!” The star returned to the longest-running noontime show today on the very first day of 2018, Jan 1 Monday. Before her holiday break overseas, the 22-year-old was a part of “Eat Bulaga!’s” “Kalyeserye” and “Sugod-Bahay” segments.
The Phenomenal Star’s social media accounts were in complete blackout mode when Maine tweeted her open letter to fans – airing her grievances over show business and the pressure she felt. The tweet was sent back in November 26.
In fact, the first post Maine shared on social media following her sudden hiatus was a photo of her wearing this stunning Omega Aqua Terra Seamaster watch.
According to this report by GMA, many were afraid that Maine might be suspended for her actions. Fortunately ‘Bosing’ Vic Sotto clarified that she wouldn’t be suspended and had gone to the United States for her vacation.
When Maine was spotted during the “Sugod-Bahay” segment, the studio audience went crazy. Just as well, her fans and AlDub fans went wild on Twitter, with the hashtags “#ALDUB2018” and “Maine” trending all over the internet.
Here’s what some fans had to say about Maine’s return,
