Vice Ganda is alarmed by stabbing incident involving Ricky Rivero


061911-vice_main.jpgVice Ganda was deeply shocked when he heard that good friend and Petrang Kabayo co-star, actor/director Ricky Rivero, was in the hospital after being stabbed multiple times in his own apartment. The perpetrator turned out to be a young man whom Ricky only met that time after a few months of chatting on Facebook and turned out to be after Ricky’s money.

Nakakatakot na! Ang hirap na talagang magtiwala kung kani-kanino sa panahon ngayon,” said Vice. He also felt alarmed for himself and other gay friends who tend to be too friendly even to strangers. “Ang hirap nang humarot. Kaya sabi ko sa mga friends kong bakla, less harot na dapat kasi nakakatakot na.

Though he doesn’t actually chat with strangers online, he advised all users of social networking websites to observe caution when encountering unfamiliar people. “Hindi rin naman kasi ako nakikipagchikahan sa mga random people online. Kapag hindi ko kilala hindi ko chinichika. Sobrang cautious ako. Hindi na lang bakla, lahat na tayo, dapat extra careful na. ‘Wag masyadong nagbibigay ng mga personal na impormasyon. Sa hirap ng buhay ngayon may mga taong mananakit na para maka-survive.”

Vice was also asked for his personal opinion on the burning issue of possibly having divorce legalized in the Philippines. “Hindi naman ako apektado niyan kasi hindi naman ako magpapakasal,” joked the gay comedian.

Despite strong opposition from the Catholic Church, Vice felt that probably it’s already time that divorce be made available to those couples whose marriage no longer have the hope to be repaired. “Pero tingin ko para sa ibang tao, iba na rin kasi ang panahon ngayon. Kung may annulment bakit hindi pwede ang divorce e halos pareho lang naman yata ‘yung na pagpapawalang bisa ng kasal. Tayo na lang yata ang bansang walang divorce. Kung sa Spain nga kung saan natin nakuha ang Christianity may divorce. Kung nagwo-work sa kanila, bakit hindi pwede sa atin?
