Direk Joey Reyes praises Alden Richards

Director Joey Reyes recently commended Alden Richards on Twitter, saying that the "Eat Bulaga!" host is a "cut above the rest."

The director was flattered that Alden took time to send him a thank you text for a blog he wrote about him and the "AlDub" phenomenon.

In the blog, Direk Joey talked about Alden's sudden rise to fame - the popularity that was made possible by the noontime show after just a couple of months. It was something that GMA-7 (his mother studio that he has been for years now) wasn't able to give him.

And lastly ... the kid's got what it takes. He's got talent --- and it completely befuddles/confuses/discombobulates me as to why his mother studio never made the most of what he has to turn him into a much bigger star than he has become in the here and now.  What's that? It only took Eat Bulaga two months to turn him into the Bae ng Bayan where he has been around for ... uh, years?

The blog also touched on Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub (the other half of the AlDub tandem) and how she gave "new adrenaline" to the barangay gang of Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros.

The difference between Ms. Mendoza and about 90% of the wannabe-artistas out there is that she does not need it.  Come to think of it, we are not even sure if this is what she really wanted since the girl is a graduate of the School of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the De la Salle College of Saint Benilde.  Get this: she did her apprenticeship in a food establishment in upstate New York City, OK?  Like the rest of the graduates of SHRM of CSB, she isn't out there to cook burgers or doughnuts.

Her rise to fame is accidental and she seems to be having fun.  Her addition toEat Bulaga's roster of Kabarkads is a case of absolutely perfect timing.  When she assumed the character of Yaya Dub, much harassed caregiver to Wally Bayola's hilarious Lola Nidora, that whole gang with Jose Manalo and master chameleon Paolo Ballesteros  raiding the baranggays of Manila exploded with a new adrenaline overload.

Meanwhile, a new character named Duhrizz appeared in the noontime show's "kalyeserye." She is another grandchild of Lola NiDora and she seems to like Alden as well, posing an added threat to the much-awaited meeting of AlDub.
