Mariel Rodriguez moving to TV-5

IT’S CONFIRMED. Mariel Rodriguez has left ABS-CBN’s “Happy Yippe Yehey” to move to TV5’s “Wiltime Bigtime” come October. And we heard hubby Robin Padilla will follow her after his “Guns and Roses” ends on ABS. It’s said Mariel is no longer happy hosting “Happy Yippe” as co-host Toni Gonzaga is giving her the cold shoulder. After they had a tiff last year, things between them were never the same again even after they’ve ostensibly patched up their differences on TV.

Cristy said it’s not surprising that many Kapamilyas are moving to the Kapatid network. “Grabe kasi ang taas ng pasuweldo sa TV5,” she told us. “Ako, ang suweldong nakukuha ko rito in one month, five months ang katumbas sa kabila. Pati mga utility boys naming galing sa kanila, P1,000 a day ang bayad kaya mas happy talaga sila sa Happy Network.”

Some folks say Mariel will be replacing Shalani Soledad who’s engaged to be married to Cong. Roman Romulo. But Cristy Fermin told us Shalani is not leaving the show as her husband-to-be agrees for her to go on with her hosting career even after their wedding.
