In an interview with Boy Abunda on the Buzz Sunday afternoon, Precious admitted that she indeed brought her boyfriend in Hawaii last week when the noontime program held a special show in the island. But it’s not only her boyfriend that she brought with her but also her mom.
She said, “I was pulled out…siguro axed talaga is the term. I’ll tell you the story talaga… Nagalit si Kuya, Kuya Willie [Revillame]. There was a rule daw that I was not allowed to bring a boyfriend, which is very unclear to me. I did not know. I wasn’t told very clearly. The only time I was told was parang it was like a joke and I even… I’m not gonna even say that anymore.
“Pero there was no rule to me. I didn’t understand that. And I knew naman talaga that if I was going to bring my boyfriend and my mom, dapat hindi maapektuhan ang work, which is what happened.
“I’m sure that the people from Wowowe who came with us, they can attest to it na hindi ko naman napabayaan ang work ko. I was never late. I was never absent for any rehearsal, for any TV guesting, for the show itself. I did my best. I gave my best. So, surprise lang talaga ako doon sa reason nila sa pagtanggal sa akin because I brought my boyfriend and my mom along,” Lara added.
Boy Abunda clarified with Lara that the rule forbidding any of its stars to bring their girlfriend or boyfriend to work is not a company rule of ABS-CBN. But each program of the kapamilya network has its own “house rules” and unfortunately in Wowowee, this is one of them.
Lara further explains, “The only time they saw my mom and my boyfriend was at the last day ng stay namin sa Hawaii. Only in the airport na nga lang, tapos nung nasa airport. My mom didn’t even watch the show para lang wala silang masabi. Kasi I was told, okay if they are coming, kung sasama sila, huwag na lang silang magpakita. Don’t let them come with you in the rehearsal or anything like that. And that was they did.”
Lara firmly declared that she will no longer return in Wowowee even if Willie Revillame and the rest of the staff will ask her back. She added that despite of the matter, she will still be a kapamilya and her fans can still watch her in “That’s My Doc.”
