KING of Talk Boy Abunda is currently on a break with long-time partner Bong Quintana, weeks after the television host reportedly underwent surgery due to an undisclosed medical condition.
In a photo reposted by the couple’s close friend, actress Gretchen Barretto, Abunda and Quintana were photograph along a white sand beach spending quality time with each other.
“This photo of my dear friend, Boy Abunda with his loving long time partner Bong is simply pure joy. It is an answered prayer to see Boy back to his old healthy, energetic ways. You have been greatly missed, Boy,” Barretto said.
In a separate Instagram post, Abunda’s then “Bandila” co-anchor Julius Babao also posted an update on the television host’s condition.
Abunda’s personal assistant, Philip, said his boss is in good health. The television reportedly lost 20 pounds during his two-week hospital confinement.
“He’s up and ready. We won’t be seeing him on TV anytime soon because he’s scheduled to leave for a vacation in a place where there’s sun and fresh air, and hopefully there’s moon too,” he said.
“Seriously, he misses everybody but asking all of you to continuously pray for his speedy recovery,” he added.
Abunda has already skipped several episodes of “Aquino & Abunda Tonight” and was not seen in the weekend showbiz talk show “The Buzz” for close to a month now.
Showbiz sisters Alex and Toni Gonzaga replaced him and close friend, Kris Aquino, who was also sick last week, in several episodes of the daily late night program. (Sunnex)
