– Tell us what happened?
“It’s something very complicated to say, but William Valdés was not the one who resigned or decided to leave Venga la alegría, because the day he said goodbye, it seemed he had another project and that’s why he left, but that’s not the case, William Valdés was fired at someone’s behest.”

“Sergio Sepúlveda is the one who had the last word and chose William to leave the morning.”

Can you give us more context?
“Of course. It’s true that for a long time Sergio had an arrogant attitude, as if his fame had grown, and it was difficult for everyone to work with him, because there comes a time when he becomes unbearable because of the way he addresses people or asks for things; without a doubt, he no longer he is not the same person we met at the beginning.”

– How did you find out that Sergio decided to remove William?
“I don’t want to get into trouble with the production guys, but what I can say is that one day the executives asked Sergio to decide which of the drivers he wanted to drop from the show, and he very calmly pointed to William; Without giving a reason, with his hands on his waist, he ran away from him.”

“Do you think it’s because William treated him badly?”
“No, we’ve worked with William and I can tell you that he’s a very relaxed guy, he doesn’t mess with anyone and he’s very professional; In fact, he tried many times to get along with Sepúlveda and be good friends off-screen, but he never succeeded and the relationship between them was only related to work.

“It was rumored in the television corridors that Sergio plans to gradually remove all those who were included in the program by Sandra Smešter, who was in charge of giving work to several initiators (while she was the director of TV content). Azteca, who now works at Telemundo); and for this reason Sepúlveda had no choice but to endure life with William, because she knew that he was one of Sandra’s favorites, but now that he is gone, she wants to do and undo with Venga la alegría”.

– What would be the goal of replacing those hired by Sandra Smešter?
“I’m sure it’s because Sergio was seen as an important driver, in addition to being an associate producer, and the executives saw him as an essential part of the program, and it’s also because he was a teacher to many,” William said on Friday (Oct. 28 ) said he said goodbye, but I think he was confused and thought he was untouchable, so he decided to make changes of his own accord.

– What did the producer, Dio Lluberes, do?
“He couldn’t do much, because what he doesn’t want is to have a heated conversation with Sergio and he had no choice but to respect the decision.”

– And how did William accept the news?
“Everyone saw it, he was very sad… It’s true that he was very cool, because he never thought that his time on the program would end so soon, but he asked Dia to let him say goodbye, because for him The public is important.”

– Did you feel Sergio’s sincere farewell words to William?
“No, nobody believed him, and I think it showed on camera; while Kristal Silva and Patricio Borghetti say goodbye to William, Sergio, according to him, made sad faces, but he was serious all the time, his face represented peace, knowing that he took
decision, and the hugs he gave him live were more forced than anything else, they looked like that… His wish to never see Valdés again came true.
