Robi Domingo and Maymay Entrata are working together on an exciting project, and they already have a team nickname: MayBi! But nope, it’s not for a kilig rom-com. It’s for something that’s right up Robi’s alley—a hosting gig!

Robi shared in an interview with ABS-CBN: “Last year we were just thinking kasi na-miss ko ang MYX nang lubusan. Gusto ko lang pag-usapan lahat ng mga pwedeng pag-usapan. Maiqui (Pineda) asked, ‘Sino bang gusto mong kasama sa mga talakayan?’ Gusto ko ng kwela at matalino, that’s why we asked Maymay to co-produce this program.”
Maymay, who considers Robi as one of her mentors in hosting, immediately said yes to the project. The talk show will be called “Call Me MayBi” and will revolve around discussions on the pair’s “thoughts on love life as well as their stand in today’s current issues,” according to ABS-CBN’s report.

The actress recounted how she felt when she got the call. “Nung pinitch sa akin ang project na ito, talagang wala akong pagdadalawang isip, syempre si Kuya Robi ang una agad nag-guide sa akin sa showbiz, lalo na sa hosting.” She also said, “Mas prefer ko po talaga na may kasama ako sa hosting at sobrang saya ko na makakasaya ko si Kuya Robi.”
Call Me MayBi will stream on the app Kumu’s FYE Channel every Friday at 8 p.m. Catch the first episode on August 13, where Robi and Maymay will talk about “Lockdown Landi: Pwede bang magkaroon ng true love sa quarantine?”
