Vice Ganda says Ogie Diaz wants the best for his showbiz career; maintains that they've remained good friends despite their recent tiff.
After much speculation, Vice Ganda admitted that the reason why he and Ogie Diaz got into a rift a few weeks ago is partly because he’s considering looking for a new manager. “Oo
, open naman kami ni
Ogie sa ganyan. Kasi nga masyado ng malaki ang negosyong ito, dati puchu-puchu lang, parakeet-raket lang talaga. Sabi ko sa kanya, kailangan may mangyaring malaking pagbabago kung paano natin hina-
handle ang negosyong ito
,” he frankly stated during his solo press con for Praybeyt Benjamin
at the ABS-CBN Compound, Wednesday, October 19.
Vice further shared that he didn’t have any qualms about airing such grievances to Ogie since they are very good friends to begin with. In fact, Ogie was the one who has been giving him a list of the best managers in showbiz. “Ayaw ko magsinungaling sa kanya. Yun ang gusto kong relasyon sa kanya

.’” Vice refused to give names of possible candidates for the said position and added that Ogie is still his manager for now.
Vice explained that he has been stalling the issue for the past few weeks because he didn’t want it to affect his performance in Praybeyt Benjamin.

Despite his pending career decisions, Vice maintained that his friendship with Ogie is stronger than ever after they’ve threshed out their differences. “For sure hindi yun ang
