Vice Ganda denies that a spat with his co-hosts was the reason for his temporary leave on ‘It's Showtime.’
Despite causing a
stir online almost a week ago after insinuating that he would be leaving It's Showtime, Vice Ganda clarified that
he would definitely go back to the show after his health improves. "Oo. Anuba. Basta kapag maayos na lahat
babalik ako," Vice said in an interview on October 29 at the birthday
and 10th anniversary celebration of his best friend Coco Martin.
The comedian in
earlier reports claimed that his departure would be purely due to health
reasons because he needs to rest. "Kanina
galing ako sa St. Lukes to get checked. Medyo umayos na ‘yung itsura nung
larynx ko, nung nodes ko. Maaaliwalas na. Hindi na siya masyadong punong puno
na mucus. Andun pa rin ‘yung polyp eh na inaalam nila kung cyst siya or
polyp," he discussed with the press.
According to Vice,
he actually has an option to undergo a biopsy however "Kailangan kong magpahinga ng dalawang
linggo. Total voice rest." (A
biopsy is a procedure to remove a piece of tissue or a sample of
cells from one’s body so that it can be analyzed in a laboratory.)
"For now hindi ko siya kayang gawin kasi nagmo-movie
ako. So sabi dahil hindi ko magagawa, prinolong ‘yung gamot ng dalawang linggo
pa kasi titignan kung gaganda 'yung sitwasyon after two weeks. Pero kung after
two weeks hindi pa rin gumaganda ang sitwasyon kailangan na talaga siyang
operahan. Pero sabi nga ng doktor 'wag daw akong matakot kasi wala naman daw
hihiwain sa loob," Vice shared.
The actor-host is
currently finishing Praybeyt Benjamin 2,
his Metro Manila Film Festival entry which is directed by Wenn Deramas.
How did he feel
when the doctor told him about his condition? "Ako kasi masaya akong nalalaman hangga't maaga eh kesa 'yung malalang
malala na. Eh ako kung wala nga lang rin akong masyadong maraming ginagawa,
kung wala akong pelikula eh iiwan ko ito lahat eh. Kaya lang kailangan kong
matapos itong Praybeyt Benjamin for the film fest," he said.
Since opening up
about his hiatus on It’s Showtime, a
lot speculated that this was because he reportedly had a spat with someone from
the team. An issue which. Vice claimed to be false.
