Rufa Mae Quinto has left “Wil Time Bigtime” after only five weeks as a co-host, Cristy Fermin reported on “Paparazzi Showbiz Exposed” on Saturday.
Cristy said the sexy comedienne, who moved to TV5 after her contract with GMA expired in April, was no longer a part of Willie Revillame’s primetime game show starting Friday.
The “Paparazzi” co-host suggested two possible reasons for Rufa Mae’s abrupt departure: the production deemed the talent fee she was demanding too high and she did not consider the show her top priority.
Neither Rufa Mae, who joined the nightly program on May 7, nor the producers of “Wil Time” have issued an official statement about the matter.
She was not part of the delegation that performed in Los Angeles and San Francisco recently as part of The Big Launch of TV5 International in the US.
Willie only brought co-hosts Mariel Rodriguez and Camille Villar with him.
