According to Ethel, this has discouraged her from making television appearances. “Kaya nakakatamad na mag-guest sa TV show kasi merong iba dyan mag-almost 1 year na di pa ma-claim ang TF sunod meron ding more than 5 months na ata. Sa skype na lang talaga ako mag-show C2C,” she said

(“This is why I’m discouraged to do guestings on TV shows because there are those who, after almost one year, have yet to pay me my talent fee, and another who hasn’t also paid for more than five months. Perhaps I should just come to shows via Skype, cam-to-cam.”)

When a fan asked her to drop the name of the show, Ethel revealed that it was ABS-CBN game show Minute to Win It. “Ilang minutes ako nag-antay sa bangko wala pa din pala eh mag-1 year na. Charot!” she added.

(“I waited many minutes at the bank but got nothing. It’s almost been a year.”)

Luis Manzano, the host of Minute to Win It, replied to Ethel the following day and promised he will help look into the issue.

Ethel later revealed that Gandang Gabi Vice has also not paid her for her guesting.

Ethel, however, has informed fans that both shows are already in the process of resolving the issue.

She also clarified that she is calling out the particular shows and not the entire network for the oversight. “Even ibang network naman may show sila na may problem minsan [sa] pag-iissue [ng] payment,” she added.

(“Even other networks have shows that have problems in issuing payments.”)
