In an interview with the media on the set of the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry, “Jack Em Popoy: The PulisCredibles“, Filipino actress-comedienne Maine Mendoza (age 23) aka Phenomenal Star and Dubsmash Queen, said she’s willing to appear on actor Coco Martin‘s (age 36) TV series, Ang Probinsyano on ABS-CBN.
Turning to Coco Martin, she asked him, “Magho-host ka din sa Eat Bulaga?” [You will also be a host at Eat Bulaga?]
Laughing, Coco Martin said, “Pwede rin.” [That can also be.]
Maine added, “Juan for All. Kasama namin syang mag ‘Sugod Bahay’. Charot lang, charot lang. Uy, baka mag-expect kayo.” [Juan for All. We will be with him during ‘Sugod Bahay’ portion. Just kidding, just kidding. Hey, some people might expect it.]
Answering a follow-up question, Maine Mendoza was serious when she said she would be willing to promote the movie “Jack Em Popoy: The PulisCredibles” on “Ang Probinsyano“. That is, if she will be allowed to. “Kung papayagan po ako, bakit hindi?” [If they will allow me, why not?]

GMA Network and ABS-CBN collaboration
The rivalry between GMA Network and ABS-CBN has been fierce in the past years. It’s rare for artists of each respective network to appear on a rival network.
But according to Coco Martin, he’s glad that GMA Network and ABS-CBN have been more open lately. He said that some GMA artists now star in movies of Star Cinema, the film outfit of ABS-CBN.
