However, one of the producers of Eat Bulaga clarified that Maine's schedule actually prevents her from attending the GMA-7 noontime show.
Malou Choa-Fagar, one of the executives of Television And Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE), posted a group photo of the Eat Bulaga Dabarkads during their recent trip to Petra, Jordan.
Writing on the caption of her Instagram post, she said, "Dabarkads at Petra. Missing Maine."
A netizen asked the TAPE executive, "Mam malou, pls ibalik nyo na si meng sa eat bulaga mahal na mahal namin sya, for she's being real, miss her so much."
Malou responded by replying, "We did not take her out. It's her sked that does not permit her to attend the show."
Showbiz reporter Allan Diones also asked Malou the whereabouts of Maine, who was previously seen with the Eat Bulaga team in Israel, and responded, "Back to Manila yesterday. May shoot."
Another netizen inquired about the projects being done by Maine, "Ano po b ang sked ni maine? db po daddy gurl lang un taping ny? cyempre po kyo ang nkakaalam ng sked ni maine kc under cy ng management ninyo. tnx"
Malou replied: "Hindi ako part ng management ni Maine."
