Many netizens are confused and are asking why TV host Ryan Agoncillo has been absent from the GMA7’s TV program “Eat Bulaga” for the past few weeks. It seemed that the viewers of the long-time running noontime show missed Ryan so much. They are also concern about his health because they were well aware that he experienced a motorcycle accident. But what bothers them is his absence from the 39th anniversary celebration of the Dabarkads family.
In an interview with Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP), Ryan’s wife Judy Ann Santos explained the reason behind his absence. She admitted that it was Ryan’s health which is the main reason why viewers cannot see him during the noontime show. Judy Ann said that Ryan is supposed to have a daily therapy because his doctor observed that the knee injury he obtained from the motorcycle accident last year is healing a very slow pace.
“The truth is, kailangan niya talagang mag-focus, magbigay ng proper attention sa therapy niya, kasi mabagal ang healing. E, yung time ng therapy na ibinigay sa kanya ng doctor, yun din ang time niya sa Bulaga.” Judy Ann said.
“Ang nangyari kasi, after ng surgery niya, after a month, bumalik na rin siya agad sa Eat Bulaga. So, noong nagpa-check-up siya ulit, nakitang hindi masyadong naghi-heal. Kumbaga sa kalendaryo, dapat sa part na ito, magaling na, fully recovered na siya. Hindi pa umaabot sa ganung stage, kasi nga hindi niya natutukan ang therapy niya. So ngayon, ang advice sa kanya is he really needs to put attention.” The multi-awarded actress also added.
On the other hand, Judy Ann said that Ryan used this opportunity to bond with his kids more because it has been such a long time since the last time Ryan actually sat together with his kids.
“Kasi for the past seven, nine years niya sa Eat Bulaga, most of the time, hindi niya nakikita ang mga bata. Ngayong nagte-therapy siya, parang he took it as a chance na rin to be able to spend time with the children.”
Judy Ann also revealed that they were happy that viewers are concerned about him and they are missing him so much.
“Nakakatuwa naman na nami-miss, nagtatanong sila, concerned sila. Hindi naman namin ide-deny ang fact na napapansin siyang wala sa Bulaga, ibig sabihin, nagma-matter yung presence niya, di ba? Doon alone, nakakataba ng puso.”
