MANILA, Philippines - Comedian Jose Manalo says the fainting of Maine Mendoza, also known as Yaya Dub, during an episode of "Eat Bulaga" was real.
 
On Saturday, Maine fainted during a wedding scene which features her and Jose Manalo, playing the character of Frankie Arinolli, in the "Kalyeserye" segment of the GMA-7 noontime variety show.
 
The incident became a major trending topic online over the weekend.
 
Yaya Dub is one-half of the popular "Eat Bulaga" tandem AlDub, which also features actor Alden Richards. The two were supposed to meet for the first time during Saturday's episode.
 
 
In an interview with GMA-7 news program "24 Oras Weekend" aired on Sunday, Jose shared that Maine told him she wasn't feeling well before she fainted.
 
"Bumulong siya sa akin na, 'Kuya, nahihilo ako.' So sabi ko sa kanya, 'Totoo ba yan?' Maya maya, gumanon siya, hinawakan niya ako. Tapos naramdaman ko yung pisil niya. Tinignan ko na siya. Maputla 'yung bata. Tapos ayun, bumagsak na," Jose said 
 
He added, "Siguro sa pagod din, nabigla siya sa mundo ng showbiz."
 
Jose said Wally Bayola, who was also present during the Kalyeserye segment as Lola Nidora, had to keep the show going despite Maine's fainting.
 
"Tutal wala naman tayong script, gawin na lang natin. Itawid natin ng maayos. Kailangan 'yung tao rin, hindi mag-panic sa nangyayari, syempre," he said.
 
Eat Bulaga issued a statement regarding Maine's condition via its Facebook page on Saturday.
 
"Dinala po siya kanina sa Cardinal Santos Medical Center. Wala po tayong dapat ipag-alala. Konting pahinga lang po ang kailangan. Maraming salamat po sa inyong pagmamahal at pagsuporta sa kanya. Maraming salamat sa mga nagmamahal sa AlDub," the statement read.
