The Kapamilya network reportedly turned down feelers from Mariel Rodriguez’s camp to return and co host the Pinoy Big Brother.
It means that the possibility of Rodriquez to return to ABS-CBN is looking dimmer.
The popular franchised reality show will soon launch another season of ‘Pinoy Big Brother Teens’ which can be expected in time early this year and it will be hosted by Toni Gonzaga.
It can be recalled that Mariel had a falling out with ABS-CBN when she decided to abruptly leave the network to join Willie Revillame’s defunct TV5 game show.
The TV5 show went off the air in October last year.
Mariel has not been seen on TV, except for occasional guest appearances on ABS-CBN.
She was seen in Boy Abunda’s late-night newscast ‘Bandila.’
When asked by some press people on rare occasions that she shows up on events, Mariel that she is on vacation.
She has disclosed that she is currently into a new hobby of cultivating and harvesting organic products from her own garden.
ABS-CBN must still be feeling grudges since Mariel left them a few years ago.
She left while being a co-host of ABS-CBN defunct noontime show ‘Happy, Yipee, Yehey,’ which was also hosted by Toni, Randy Santiago, and John Estrada.
That time, Randy and John were having personal gap with their friend Willie, who disliked their idea of accepting a new show from Kapamilya network.
Mariel also left bad taste in the mouth when she insulted and made fun of her once close friend Toni Gonzaga by describing her as cross eyed?
However, Mariel is expected to show up in selected ABS-CBN shows in the coming days.
She will be promoting the movie ‘Sa Ngalan and Ama, Ina, at mga Anak,’ a film produced by her husband Robin Padilla and released through Star Cinema.
