Tito Sotto Reiterates They Are The Original Hosts Of ‘Eat Bulaga’

Tito Sotto has this reaction to the anniversary celebration that Eat Bulaga held

Veteran showbiz personality Tito Sotto reiterated that they are the original hosts of Eat Bulaga following reports surfaced that preparations are being done for the 44th-anniversary celebration of the Kapuso show.

Tito and the rest of the legit Dabarkads took a higher notch when it comes to their legal battle. Based on the article in Pilipino Star Ngayon, the Marikina Trial Court ordered TAPE Inc. and GMA-7 to answer the complaint filed by Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon (TVJ) for the alleged copyright issue.

It is because of the replay episodes that TAPE and GMA aired without the permission of TVJ. The production company behind the noontime show and the Kapuso network have received the order to answer the complaint.

Based on the report, here is stated in the document received by TAPE Inc. and GMA Network signed by Judge Romeo Dizon Tagra.

“You are hereby required, within thirty (30) days after service of this Summons, to file with this court and serve on the plaintiffs, through counsel, your Answer to the Complaint, copy of which is attached together with the annexes. You are reminded of Rule 2, Section 4 of the 2020 Revised Rules of Procedure for Intellectual Property Rights Cases which proscribed the filing of a motion to dismiss except only on the grounds of lack of jurisdiction over the subject matter, litis pendentia, or res judicata, and instead allege any ground/s other than the ones previously mentioned as defenses in the Answer. If you fail to answer within the time fixed, the court, on motion of the plaintiffs, or motu proprio, render judgment as may be warranted by the allegations in the complaint, as well as the affidavits and other evidence on record,””

Following this, GMA released a statement that they referred this already to their legal counsel.

Eat Bulaga hosts are set to celebrate the show’s 44th anniversary. However, it is known to many that the show’s more than four decades was started by the TVJ.

In line with this, Tito Sotto slammed those who are in the Kapuso show. “Kami orig ang may karapatan mag-celebrate. For TAPE people and current hosts, none of them were there 44 years ago. The nerve!” the former Senate President said.

Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon, along with the legit Dabarkads, started their new show on TV5 last July 1 titled EAT but they are still hoping that they can acquire the Eat Bulaga title after the legal battle.
