When Vice Ganda was asked about what more he could ask for, considering that he is blessed in his showbiz career, he answered, “Magkaroon ng masayang puso, charot!”
He was then asked if his reply meant that his love life is not in a good state at the moment. “’Di ko alam kung sugatan ba siya o patay nang tuluyan… basta. Kung ano lang [ang] meron ie-enjoy ko lang. Bahala na ang Diyos. Alam na naman ng Diyos kung ano ang kailangan ko atsaka ‘yung iba nga ‘di ko hinihiling ibinibigay Niya lang,” he declared.
Just recently, two campus basketball players were linked to the comedian: RR Garcia and Terrence Romeo. However, Vice was quick to clarify, “Naku hindi naman totoo na dala-dalawa. Kung dala-dalawa, ‘di sana ang saya-saya ko talaga ngayon.”
Vice was then directly asked if he now has a special someone, and in a sober tone he replied, “Meron naman.” He then laughed for giving himself away by suggesting that his love life is currently not that happy. He confirmed this when he said, “Hindi masyadong masaya.”
He opened up when he described that there are instances in one’s life when not everything is going well. Like in his case, Vice cited that when his past three movies became blockbuster hits, there had been drawbacks in his personal life each time.
“Nung nag-hit ‘yung Petrang Kabayo, na-comatose ‘yung lola ko,” he related. “Nung nag-hit ‘yung Praybeyt Benjamin, namatay ‘yung lola ko. Ngayong nag-hit ang This Guy’s In Love With U, Mare, parang namatay ang puso ko. Ganun talaga. You can’t have it all. Kailangan maranasan mo ‘yon para mas ma-savor mo ‘yung tamis ng tagumpay kasi hindi mo maa-appreciate ang sarap ng menudo kung ‘di ka makakatikim ng adobo. Kailangan magkaroon ng variety.”
Nevertheless, Vice said that he hopes that he will get through this. “Maayos naman pero alam mo ‘yung maayos na di masyadong maayos, pero I’m holding [on] to my hope.”
Meantime, Vice was also asked to comment on the report that he gave a Hummer (a high-end SUV) to his special someone. The Phenomenal Box-Office Star seemed to find this incredulous. Vice explained that he does not mind being generous to his special someone as long as he makes sure first that he can provide well enough to his family. “Pag nakapagbigay na siguro ako ng eroplano sa pamilya ko, magbibigay ako ng Hummer sa lalaki,” he said. “Pero kung di pa ako nagbibigay ng Hummer sa pamilya ko baka traysikel muna sa dyowa ko,” he said.
He continued that there is nothing wrong in giving gives gifts to your special special someone. “Kasi ang babae nagreregalo sa lalaki [at] ang lalaki nagreregalo sa babae. Anong masama kung ang dyowa ay magregalo sa dyowa niya?” he pointed out.
Vice then tackled the common notion that gay people usually lavish their lovers with gifts. “Marami ring pagkakataon na ‘yung lalaki may binibigay din sa bakla na hindi lang nakikita ng tao. Masyado lang kasi isa ang direksyon ng mata ng tao,” he defended.
He continued that it is okay for him to give gifts to a special someone as long as he has the means to do it. “Di ko inutang ito, pinagtrabahuhan ko ito at bonus ito. ‘Yun ang paraan na mapasaya ko ang sarili ko pero hindi ako nagbigay ng Hummer. Bumili ako ng Hummer pero di ko binigay. Pinaghirapan ko ‘yon, ako muna ang makikinabang.”
