  • SexBomb Dancers to guest in 'Happy Yipee Yehey!'

    Is the popular all-girl dance group largely identified with the longest running television show in the country “Eat Bulaga!” switching to its noontime rivals?

    ABS-CBN announced in a press release sent to Yahoo! Southeast Asia on Friday, March 4 that the Sex Bomb Dancers will guest in its noontime show “Happy Yipee Yehey!” on Saturday, March 5.

    The group, known for their hit songs “Spaghetti,” “Halukay Ube” and “Bilog na Hugis Itlog” will be gracing the Kapamilya stage for the very first time to the delight of the ABS-CBN show’s hosts.

    “Kami dito sa ‘Happy Yipee Yehey!’ happy lang kami, walang away-away. Kaya sobrang masaya talaga kami na i-guest ang Sexbomb dito sa show dahil alam namin na saya lang din ang hatid nila para sa ating mga kababayan,” John and Randy said in a joint statement in the press release.

    Mariel, on the other hand, said she was ready for a “showdown” with the girls. “Kung yan ang magpapasaya sa sa sambayanang Pilipino, I’ll give my best shot this Saturday,” Mariel said in the press release.

    Toni Gonzaga, who once worked with SexBomb as a former host of “Eat Bulaga” expressed her excitement in reuniting with the group onstage.

    “It was seven years ago when I last worked with them, kaya sobrang na-excite ako noong nalaman ko na they will guest here in ‘Happy Yipee Yehey!’ I'm proud of them dahil produkto sila ng aming magaling na choreographer dito sa show na Ms. Joy Cancio,” Toni was also quoted in the release.

    Joy had been the manager of the dance group since its inception as back-up dancers for “Eat Bulaga’s” game portions in the last decade.

    But a falling out with “Eat Bulaga” producers led to the group’s suspension from the show years back. Although they were reinstated, the group’s involvement in the show became scarcer as they competed against another in-house all-girl dance group, the EB Babes.

    As their appearance on Eat Bulaga dwindled and their afternoon TV drama anthology “Daisy Siete” canceled, the group faced uncertain prospects on a very crowded TV space. Joy had long searched for a more stable arrangement for the girls until she landed the job of main choreographer of the new ABS-CBN noontime show “Happy Yipee Yehey!” It is apparent that this has opened doors for SexBomb, though placing them head to head against the show that started the group.

    Reports say that Joy had never informed “Eat Bulaga” about her decision to take the job of choreographer in its rival show. Now a bigger surprise seemed to be out on the 32-year old variety show, but obviously not totally unexpected.
