Amids the forced wedding ceremony of Yaya Dub with Frankie in Eat Bulaga’s KalyeSerye, Yaya Dub suddenly fainted. Many had debated whether it was part of the story line or genuine, however, according to the show’s posts on Facebook, it was no acting.
In the two-minute video clip posted by Eat Bulaga in Facebook, the beautiful bride Yaya Dub is seen gripping the arm of Frankie, portrayed by Jose Manalo. According to Manalo, Maine Mendoza whispered ‘kuya’, grabbed his arm, then suddenly lost consciousness. Even the other actors were evidently initially surprised, but immediately regained composure to continue the show.
Even before the show started, Mendoza was said to have posted that she woke up feeling weak, yet she still opted to push through the show. Many had commended the staff and Mendoza’s co actors for handling the situation well. Wally Bayola, playing the role of Lola Nidora, quickly acted on it and asked the wedding officiator to continue on while he calls for his guards for help.
After the said scene, Alden Richards came in only to have lost the chance to finally meet Yaya Dub. Many also shared that destiny might have intervened not to let the two meet in the wedding.

Mendoza was taken to the Cardinal Santos Medical Center and was given immediate care.Alive and still kicking! As I have posted earlier, I'm feeling under the weather since this morning. We're too busy preparing for the segment that I forgot to take my meds. That's probably the reason why I passed out during our cue. None of it was scripted. I was immediately rushed to the hospital so I can have myself checked. But nothing to worry, they said it's all because of over fatigue. Super appreciate all the love and concern from everyone! Rampa na ulit si Yaya Dub! Good news: Hindi natuloy ang kasal Bad news: Hindi pa din kami pinagtagpo..... ng tadhana 😟
Eat Bulaga management assured the viewers that there was nothing to worry as the actress only needs rest.
