Joy Cancio reportedly signed a deal with TAPE Inc. for SexBomb's comeback on Eat Bulaga!
The SexBomb Dancers will be seen once again in Eat Bulaga!, not as guests but as a regular cast of the noontime show on GMA-7. A source disclosed that Joy Cancio, the group's manager, has already signed a deal with the management of TAPE Inc. for the comeback of the popular all-female sing-and-dance group on Eat Bulaga!.
It can be recalled that the SexBomb Girls and their manager had a rift with Malou Choa-Fagar, one of Eat Bulaga's producers, and even stood up a special presentation of the show, when Sugar Mercado, a newly-hired member then, was promoted heavily.
Joy decided to pull the group off the show as a sign of protest and disagreement from the way the other girls were being treated—that of being demoted to be a backup of Sugar. That incident also triggered speculations that the group is being hired by ABS-CBN for Wowowee, Eat Bulaga's rival show. Joy denied the report.
After a series of auditions to look for replacement for the SexBomb Girls, the EB Babes was formed. Later on, Joy extended an apology to Ms. Choa-Fagar that paved the way for SexBomb to return in Eat Bulaga!, first as guests. But now, it seems inevitable that the all-female group return as regulars to the show where they started their careers.
Some insiders say that the return of the SexBomb Girls on the show! is a move to regain Eat Bulaga's claim as the number one noontime show in the country. For weeks now, its rival program, Wowowee of ABS-CBN, has been clobbering Eat Bulaga! at the ratings.
The Sexbomb Girls also have a toprating afternoon drama show on GMA-7 titled Daisy Siete.
