Jodi Comments On Aiza’s Rumored Resignation, ‘Competition’ With ‘Eat Bulaga’

MANILA, Philippines - Amid reports of Aiza Seguerra possibly leaving "Be Careful With My Heart (BCWMH)," Jodi Sta. Maria maintained that her co-star never really planned to do so.

Aiza is caught in the middle of a sort-of competition between the hit series and the GMA-7 variety show "Eat Bulaga," where she began her career decades ago. With the time slot of 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., "BCWMH" almost goes against the variety show, which broadcasts at noon.

When asked if Aiza has spoken to her about this concern, Jodi related that, "Siyempre mahal din niya ang 'Be Careful With My Heart' (family), pero siyempre, may respeto din siya dun sa katapat na show dahil 'yun naman ang naging tahanan niya for the longest time."

Aiza has earlier belied speculations of her impending resignation via Twitter and even during her Feb. 25 guest appearance on "Umagang Kay Ganda."

"Alam naman natin kung ano ang time slot ng 'Be Careful' at medyo apektado lang ako doon at 'yun ang reason. And I'm very happy na 'yung 'Be Careful' family ay very accommodating pag dating doon... They are really trying and doing their best to make it work kahit ganito lang ang naibibigay ko. And I'm very blessed to be a part of such amazing team," she said.

Whatever Aiza decides in the future, Jodi noted that "it's her call."

"Ang alam ko lang na si Aiza (ay) isang maprinsipyong tao," she added.

"BCWMH" occupied the 10:45 a.m. slot when it opened in July 2012 until it got moved to its current schedule.

With rumors of another time slot shake-up that might put them in direct competition with "Eat Bulaga," Jodi assured, "Mataas po at malaki po ang respeto namin sa 'Eat Bulaga,' kasi institusyon naman na po sila eh. Napatunayan na rin naman nila na may mga show na dumating at nawala, pero sila nandoon pa rin.

"'Wag po nating gawing kumpetisyon ito. Alam din naman po namin kung saan po kami lulugar," she added.

On a lighter note, Jodi is grateful for the continued success of "BCWMH" - her biggest break so far. She even got a little teary-eyed during an audio-visual presentation at the show's recent press conference, which highlighted its achievements, including their nomination at the New York Festivals for Best Telenovela.

"Sobra-sobrang blessing talaga 'tong dumating. Every time na nakikita ko siya I am reminded na kailangan kong maging thankful sa Panginoon sa lahat ng mga binigay niya sa akin," said the award-winning actress.
