Vice Ganda shares the reason behind his frequent absences from ‘It’s Showtime’


112015-VICE_main.jpgComedian Vice Ganda said in an interview with ABS-CBN News that the reason he is frequently absent from the noontime show It’s Showtime is because he was diagnosed with gastritis. The actor-comedian-host only paid attention to his condition when he felt extreme pain while he was in Angeles, Pampanga for a concert last November 14.

Isang buong linggo, masakit 'yung tiyan ko. Kasi meron akong pang-maintain ng gamot para sa acid reflux ko. Kapag umiinom ako ng gamot, nababawasan lang pero hindi natatanggal 'yung sakit totally for the entire week. Tapos nag-concert ako sa Angeles last Saturday, nag-pause talaga ako kasi ang sakit-sakit ng tiyan ko,” he said.

“The following day, hindi na ako pinayagan ng ate ko na hindi magpaospital. Nung nagpa-checkup, pina-admit na para ma-test,” he added.

As it turns out, his sickness got worse, his acid reflux escalated to gastritis.

Ngayon gastritis. Ibig sabihin [hindi kumakain] sa tamang oras. May artista bang kumakain sa tamang oras? May nagsu-supply sa akin ng pagkain tapos 'yung gamot ko mas strict na yung pag-take ko. Kasi minsan nadededma ko din.

Vice Ganda then shared his experience with working with Coco Martin, James Reid, and Nadine Lustre who are his co-stars in the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry Beauty and the Bestie.

With Coco, he said that Coco trusts him enough on this movie since he’s not used to do comedy films.

Nung una nga nagkakatakutan kaming dalawa kasi pareho kaming strict. Pero siya sabi niya, ‘Since comedy ito, hindi ko ito forte, bahala na. Sabihin mo sa akin kapag hindi okay.’ Pinagsu-supervise niya ako. Sobrang trust niya sa akin. Siya binibigay din niya lahat ng nire-request. Go lang talaga siya.

Nakakatuwa sila (James and Nadine). May mga eksenang napapagalitan kami ni direk kasi kinikilig ako sa kanilang dalawa. May eksenang kaming apat tapos nagtatalakan kami ni Coco tapos tinatalakan ko si James kasi pinapahiwalay ko siya kay Nadine. Tapos nagbabatuhan sila ng pick-up lines. Dapat masungit ako kay James pero napapatawa ako kasi kinikilig ako sa kanilang dalawa,” he shared.
