Actress-host Ruffa Gutierrez and actress-comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas shared their happiness with the success of the pilot episode of their morning show “Ruffa & Ai,” this Monday, February 16.

In an exclusive interview with abs-cbnNEWS.com, Guttierrez said that she’s overwhelmed and honored to work with the country’s Queen of Comedy.

“Ay naku! Haping-happy ako kasi grabe talagang napakataas ng energy. Talagang pag-live show pala especially kapag morning  anything goes, tanggal na yung sapatos , tanggal ang lapel,” she said.

“Si Ai-Ai na a-aaching yung talagang wala lang, relax lang,” she added.

For the first episode of “Ruffa & Ai,” host-talent manager Boy Abunda introduced the new queens of morning show.

Actress-endorser KC Concepcion was the show’s first mystery guest. KC gave rice, salt and sugar as a sign of good luck for the newest show.

Singer-actress Sarah Geronimo was also present to talk more about her upcoming movie “You Changed My Life” with actor John Lloyd Cruz.

The singer also shared her love for dogs and even showed her three small dogs on camera.

Last but not the least, one of the hottest actors Gabby Concepcion revealed his talent on dancing “swing” as he also shared his special moments in taking good care of his youngest baby Sam.

Gutierrez said that she’s hoping that people will really learn to love and embrace her new show with delas Alas.

“Well sana magustuhan ng mga viewers actually kanina kinakabahan kami kanina ni Ai-Ai pero sabi ko bahala na si Batman. So I’m just happy na mukhang nag-enjoy  naman ang audience sana nag-enjoy din ang mga viewer,” she added.

“Ruffa & Ai,” the morning show that replaced “Boy & Kris”, has a format of giving surprises not only to television viewers but especially to their live audience.

“Everyday magbibigay kami ng pabuenas at saka everyday mayroon kaming sayaw. Talagang first time kong magsayaw in so many years kaya hindi kaya ng aking mga paa. Ang tawag ay ‘by the Ruffa & Ai” dance na lang yan an gaming signature dance na ituturo ko mamaya kay Lorin and Venice,” Ruffa said.
