Vice Ganda explains why he is in “GGV” but not in “Showtime”


111314-Vice2_main.jpgIn his interview on Kris TV today, Vice Ganda cleared why he gets to tape for Gandang Gabi Vice but would not appear in It’s Showtime.  “Sa GGV kasi, once a week lang naman ang taping. Showtime, every day, three hours. Nangangarag talaga yung lalamunan ko. Kailangan talaga hindi masyadong gamitin.

The comedian-host further revealed that he has been sleeping early these days, something unusual compared to his old habits. He said that he would just stay at home playing cards with his house helpers and then rest.

Also recuperating from a bad acid reflux, he said that he is neither allowed to eat spicy food or drink caffeine.

By January next year, Vice said that he has to undergo surgery because of a polyp in his vocal cord. “Magsusurgery ako talaga. Kailangan kong magpa-surgery,” he said referring to his throat. He said that his prolonged medication to supposedly avoid surgery lessened the inflammation of the vocal cord but the polyp remained there. Hence, it has to be removed.
