“‘Di ako nagkamali ng pakiramdam mabuting tao si Marian. Salamat sa pagsagip kay Boobay ha. Mamahalin ko kayo habang ako’y nabubuhay. Salamat salamat salamat,” Ate Gay said.

[I wasn’t wrong when I felt that Marian is a good person. Thank you for saving Boobay. I will love both of you for as long as I live. Thank you, thank, you, thank you.]

Boobay suffered from stroke earlier this week. His partner Kent Juan Resquir said the comedian is getting better now.

“Boobay’s condition is getting better. He is conscious and vital signs are stable. Strength of both upper and lower extremities is not impaired. Comprehension is preserved but has trouble speaking fluently. Still in Acute Stroke Care for further observation,” Resquir stated.

Boobay, who is Norman Balbuena in real life, is a Filipino actor, comedian and television host. He is best known for appearing in several GMA News and Public Affairs shows as a co-host. He was also a regular host in the award-winning comedy-game show Celebrity Bluff, along with Jose Manalo, Brod Pete, and Eugene Domingo.

Rivera and Boobay first became friends after they worked as hosts of Extra Challenge Extreme in 2012. After hearing what happened to Boobay, Allan K said Rivera immediately transferred the comedian to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Global City.
