Vice Ganda shrugs off 'bad karma' streak among 'It's Showtime' hosts
013014-Vice_Main.jpgVice Ganda has expressed complete support for his friend and It’s Showtime co-host Vhong Navarro. Following Vhong’s tell-all interview aired Sunday, January 26, Cedric Lee and Deniece Cornejo both gave their statements belying the actor-host’s claim that he was attacked without any cause. Deniece, for her part, stood by her account on the police blotter she filed that Vhong tried to rape her while Cedric claimed that he and his cohorts caught the comedian forcing himself on the stylist-entrepreneur.

“Agree ako na nagsasalita ang lahat ng parties. Kasi, karapatan niya naman ‘yun. Karapatan ni Vhong na magsalita. ’Yung isang partido, karapatan din naman nilang magsalita nang sa ganun. Tayo rin naman, di ba, bubuo tayo ng sarili nating istorya at sarili nating judgment sa mga pangyayaring ‘yun,” Vice said of the interviews.

Since all parties are now airing their own varying versions of the incident, Vice said that it’s inevitable for the public to choose sides and even create their own conclusions. However, Vice cautioned about the opinions, emphasizing that, “Talaga namang maguguluhan ang lahat ng tao, kasi nga, wala naman tayong pinanghahawakan sa mga sarili natin.

The Gandang Gabi Vice host reminded people that, “Lahat tayo ay nakikitsismis lang tayong lahat, wala namang nakakita. Maging emosyunal tayong lahat, pero kailangan, kontrolin natin ang mga emosyon. Kasi, lalong lalaki ang gulo kung lahat tayo makikidawdaw. Kung lahat tayo magbibigay ng mapapangit na salita at komento sa lahat.

Whether the public likes it or not, it is at this point that Vice believes that, “Kailangan nating maniwala pa rin sa sistema ng hustisya sa bansa natin at maniwala tayo.... na humingi tayo ng tulong na sana, magkaroon ng hustisya.”

But does he believe Vhong’s account of the assault? “Na kay Vhong ang suporta ko bilang kaibigan. Sinusuportahan ko siya para hindi siya panghinaan ng loob. Sinusuportahan ko siya na lahat ng mga nangyaring ito ay makakabangon siya. At sinusuportahan ko siya na lahat tayo, siya mismo, may matutunan sa pangyayaring ito. Lahat tayo, bilang kaibigan at kapamilya, anuman ang mangyari sa kapamilya at kaibigan mo, kailangan nandodoon ka,” Vice said.

With Vhong’s involvement in a scandal, many have presupposed that a “bad karma” of sorts has been hovering around the hosts of It’s Showtime. The other hosts have also recently hogged the headlines and not for good reasons. Before 2013 wrapped up, Anne Curtis got embroiled in a bar meltdown-slapping incident at an upscale bar also in Taguig. More recently, Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia were revealed to be in a stage of “courtship” which raised questions about Billy’s breakup with Nikki Gil.

Eh siguro, magkakasama man kami sa isang programa o hindi, meron at meron din namang mangyayaring maganda o hindi sa aming lahat. Nagkataon lang na nagkasama-sama kami. Pero, hindi kasi ako naniniwala sa ganun,” the host-comedian responded.

For what it’s worth, he believes that “Lahat ng ito ay may dahilan kung bakit nangyayari at hindi lang naman sa amin, kung hindi sa ibang tao, nangyayari rin naman ‘yan. Nagkataon lang na magkakagrupo kami.”

What was his takeaway from this entire controversy? “Ang lesson lang ay mag-ingat tayong lahat. Sa lahat ng ginagawa, pinupuntahan o nakakasalamuha natin, mag-ingat tayong lahat," he ended.
