WHEN Luis Manzano took a time off in Wowowee last week to join some stars in a concert in Hong Kong, action star and host Cesar “Buboy” Montano accepted the offer to be a guest host for the noontime show.
Speculations that politician wannabe Buboy would permanently occupy the vacated hosting slot spread like wildfire since he was vocal about his enjoyment while on the set on and off cam. A kissing bandit as he is, being surrounded by female hosts like Mariel Rodriguez, Valerie Concepcion, Pokwang, Carmen Soo (who already bade the show goodbye) and the two newbies made him feel more comfortable. To end all speculations, the 47-year-old favorite son of Bohol had a publicized meeting with GMA-7 executives and inked the deal on July 15. Part of the contract is a movie under GMA Films and two television programs, a sitcom and a series.
As a Kapuso contract actor, he faces a new chapter in his showbiz career, we just don’t know if it is going to be another highlight or already the final page.
