MANILA, Philippines - Grace Lee is apparently prepared for the intrigues that might come her way as the newest co-host on ''Wil Time Bigtime''-such as the possibility of being linked to its main man, Willie Revillame.
The Korean TV personality told News5 in a recent interview that she has gotten a fair warning on the matter through articles she has read and advice she has received from colleagues and friends.
She nevertheless stressed, ''Sana huwag lagyan ng malisya ang healthy working relationship namin ni Willie.''
Grace was formally welcomed on ''Wil Time Bigtime'' last Nov. 17, joining Mariel Rodriguez, Camille Villar, Cindy Miranda, and Lovely Abella as Willie's co-hosts. At the beginning of the episode, Grace expressed her excitement and gratitude over being part of the ''Wil Time Bigtime'' team.
Her inclusion on the show has given birth to a new love team of sorts, ''Wil & Grace,'' a nickname of sorts Mariel quipped at one point, taking a cue from the hit 1998 US sitcom.
Being the tease that he is, Willie asked Grace before the episode ended, ''So wala kang boyfriend?''
He then quickly pointed out, ''Ang unang patakaran, 'wag kang mai-in love sa TV host dito.''
Grace enjoyed her first day on ''Wil Time Bigtime,'' as evidenced by a photo collage she uploaded on Instagram.
''Thank you for such a warm welcome #willtimebigtime1stday,'' she wrote on the caption.
Grace's ''Wil Time Bigtime'' stint generated another common denominator for her and Valenzuela councilor Shalani Soledad-Romulo, who was one of the original co-hosts on the show. The latter had a two-year relationship with President Noynoy Aquino, while Grace dated him for a couple of months.
