Showbiz duo splits up
Showbiz journalist Jor-ge Rial announced yesterday that he asked his friend and colleague Luis Ventura to step back and leave the television show Intrusos — a programme that deals with local showbiz people’s private and public lives and airs from Mondays to Fridays on América.
Ventura has worked in Intrusos for 14 years. When Rial was absent to the show or on holidays, Ventura took the host role in the programme.
Rial said yesterday that he took the decision to “preserve” Ventura’s integrity. In recent months, Ventura has been involved in different scandals, including a positive DNA result of an extramarital child which was conceived during “an occasional sex relationship.”
