Kapamilya noontime show mainstays Vice Ganda and “Kuya Escort” Ion Perez have been the subject of “rumored relationship” in past gossip columns, but now the rumor seems to be true after netizens posted stories on social media that the two allegedly admitted to being a couple during a taping session for ‘Gandang Gabi Vice’ (GGV).
Photos of them hugging each other circulated online, and netizen JS Espejon Sanchez said that the pictures were taken during the March 12 GGV taping. He then proceeded to explain what happened on the set.
According to the Sanchez, Charo Santos and Bea Alonzo were the guests on GGV to promote their upcoming movie Eerie. The two wanted to do a prank on Vice where Ion and Jacky were dressed as nuns.
After the prank, Bea asked Kuya Escort what the real score is between him and the comedian-host. Charo Santos also had a follow-up question, and that was when Perez finally revealed that heand Vice are already couple.
“Totoo man o hindi ang mga bali-balita, abangan n’yo nalang po para malaman ang katotohanan ♥ ^O^,” cryptically posted Perez recently on his Twitter account.
Totoo man o hindi ang mga bali-balita, Abangan nyo nalang po para malaman ang katotohanan ❤^O^

The viral tweet of Vice Ganda saying: “Please allow me to be happy. Siguro deserve ko din naman magmalaki at ipagmalaki ng taong mahal ko at mahal ako. 😍😍😍 I love you daddiii ❤️ #inarelatIONship” is apparently just made by a fan and was not posted to Vice’s Twitter account.

In a previous report, the two were spotted together in an event sharing an intimate moment which was caught on cam and Jhong Hilario, their co-host, even showed proof.
The rumor was fueled further when Ion called Vice “Lab” on ‘It’s Showtime’s’ live program last month.

You will never know when will be your last.
Jonathan Garcia a.k.a Chokoleit, a well- known comedian in the industry, died last Saturday after his performance in the celebration of the Kawayan Festival in Abra.
After his death, netizens posted the last performance of the comedian in reminiscing their laughter with him. But some of them considered his last performance was a “premonitions” because of what he mentioned during his performance.
He said, “Siyempre ako ang mauuna, kung ako ang huli baka hindi ko na kayo aabutan.”
There were a lot of netizens who got chills over that statement that no one had ever expected it would happen in reality.
Chokoleit’s last words are chilling. Still can’t believe how life just passes by. Hope this helps us appreciate life and our loved ones. RIP.

Noticeably, during his performance, Chokoleit was having difficulty in breathing. And one of the netizens said that the comedian cut short his skit because of his cough.
He also mentioned that netizens always took pictures of him but he never saw them uploaded.
“Picture ng Picture hindi naman ako naniniwala dyan, ang dami nagpipicture jan wala naman akong nakitang nagupload.”
But now, due to his death, his pictures and videos will all be uploaded all over social media.
Panoorin ang huling performance ni Chokoleit sa Abra bago pumanaw. Kapansin-pansin na rin ang kanyang pagkahingal at kapos sa paghinga during the perfomance pero the show must go on at naitawid pa rin nya. For the last time he gave his last and remarkable performance! #RIPChokoleit

During his last moments, after his performance, according to JM De Guzman who was one of the performers on the event, all he thought was that Chokoleit was tired because of his performance before he was brought to the hospital.
“Not his usual self na parang jolly… inisip ko parang baka pagod lang or feel down,” said De Guzman.
“Pero at the same time I know he’s in a safe place, happy place,” he added.
Pops Fernandez, another performer on the same event can’t believe over Chokoleit’s death as she recently had a conversation with him.
“Sabi ko, ‘Kumusta ka na?’ sabi niya, ‘I’m in a good place right now saka nakaipon na ako, Ms. Pops’ so sabi ko ‘I’m happy happy naman for you,” shared by Fernandez.
Condolences from celebrities for the comedian has spread over social media.
One of his friends, comedian Vice Ganda, thanked the Lord for giving him a chance to meet him.
“Thank you, Lord for giving me a chance to meet Chokoleit and become his friend. I’m sad that we lost him, But happy that he’ll be in a much peaceful and happier place now with you. Thanks for everything Chokie. I love you!,” Vice Ganda.
Thank you Lord for giving me a chance to meet Chokoleit and become his friend. Im sad that we lost him. But happy that he’ll be in a much peaceful and happier place now with you. Thanks for everything Chokie. I love you!!! Rest well my friend.

Claudine Barretto also posted their video of spending their happiest moments together. It is the fanteserye “Marina” where his career bloomed by playing the role of “Perla” with the actress.
And so with other celebrities like Ogie Alcasid, Vhong Navarro, Angel Locsin, and Paulo Avelino who also sent their condolences over the social media.
At the age of 48, Chokoleit, the comedian and actor, died of a heart attack.
It’s not about the time you have spent your life in this world but how you have spent a good life. Indeed, as shown by the love he received, it is evidence that he spent a good life here on earth.
‘The Boobay and Tekla Show’ (TBATS) was celebrating their successful first premiere on January 27 this year. Featured on their post was the significant difference of their ratings from their rival show, ‘Gandang Gabi Vice’ (GGV), that aired since 2011.
But did they really?
ABS-CBN claimed that their late night show on Sunday is still undisputed in ratings according to Kantar Media, defending themselves on ‘TBATS’s’ claim backed by NUTAM.
Fans of both shows were confused, but ‘GGV’ fans were much more active in defending the show’s claim. Some fans were even bashing ‘TBATS’s’ on their social media by posting thentrue ratings of ‘GGV’ against the said show.
Ito ang TUNAY na PANALO!!!!https://t.co/ZcBcaPHmmQ

The fans of GMA Network’s show, on the other hand, commented on the sudden change of format of ‘GGV’ by copying ‘TBATS’s’ pranks.
Last Sunday’s ‘GGV,’ Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil were guests of the show.
They were asked by ‘GGV’ to pull a prank on jeepney passengers, which may have triggered the said comments that ‘GGV’ is copying the format, but then again, are they really?
If you followed ‘GGV’ and know the show well, Vice Ganda sometimes pulls off some elaborate pranks.
Some notable pranks were pulled on singer Lani Misalucha, who was getting ready in the dressing room when her make-up artist suddenly walked out on her after receiving a text that supposedly irked her.
A similar prank was also done to singer Ronnie, who received bad news from his road manager right before his performance on the late-night show. Occasionally, the show even teams up with popular actors for their pranks, like that time when John Lloyd pulled a prank on Sarah Geronimo and bloggers during a bloggers’ conference for the movie ‘Finally Found Someone.’
So it is for sure that the longer running show has more pranks on its belt.
What are your thoughts on this? Did ‘GGV’ bring back their prank segment because they were threatened by their rival show? Leave your opinions on the comment box down below and please leave a like and share.
Vice Ganda fans, rejoice!
Fantastica is a certified box office hit!
From his first main role in Petrang Kabayo (which earned Php 115 million) to his previous Manila Film Festival entry, The Revenger Squad, Vice didn’t stop setting the bar higher for his career.
The movie’s success is due to the massive support not just from Filipinos here in the Philippines, but worldwide as well.
Even with negative criticism, Fantastica has earned Php 596 million; making it Vice Ganda’s highest-grossing movie to date, beating his previous record of Php 571 million for the film “Gandarrapiddo: The Revenger Squad” back in the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival.
The good news was announced by Star Cinema during the film’s Thanksgiving party on Tuesday, January 29, 2018.
But not everyone is happy with Fantastica’s success.
Some dislike Vice Ganda’s continued reliance on ‘insult comedy’ and the innuendos that made some feel the movie is stale material; bringing nothing new to the table and with only the sheer star power of its lead guaranteeing its blockbuster status.
Since we are talking about box office earnings, who would forget the sensational Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo’s loveteam movie “The Hows of Us” way back in 2018? It broke the 800 million mark, making it the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.
Fans can’t help comparing the films; even going as far as stating that the film is undeserving of its success for relying too much on its star power and references.
Now, what are your thoughts on Vice Ganda’s success?
Did you like the film or do you think its the same old formula with a different packaging? Leave a comment down below for your thoughts and please do like and share for more amazing content.
The hosts of It’s Showtime made an agreement that they will go on vacation as a family every year. After nine long years in the noontime show, the hosts have grown closer and now treat each other as family.
This January, they all travelled to Hong Kong. One of the hosts, Jugs Jugueta, shared their experiences and adventures in Hong Kong. He was even interviewed regarding his views and opinion about the goings on in the show.
On Vice Ganda’s Jokes
Jokes have always been a part of the show. It is the joke that the hosts throw that make the show fun and entertaining. And one of the hosts who often throw controversial jokes is Vice Ganda.
Jugs was asked about Vice Ganda’s jokes about Eat Bulaga. He said Vice is just being honest and true. The problem with this though is that their honesty sometimes get them into trouble.
Just like other people, Vice is also a fan, despite being a star. He admitted to being a supporter of the “AlDub” team from their rival network.
Jugs does not see anything wrong with it. There are even times when Vice (and other It’s Showtime hosts) throw jokes at each other about Eat Bulaga and other stars of GMA Network.
As jokes go, they are just meant to be funny. But other people make issues out of those jokes. And as Jugs said, it gets them into trouble.
On Their Relationship As Hosts
The hosts of the show have developed a friendship incomparable with anything else. Their friendship is one with honesty, openness, and love. They respect each other’s opinions and views, making them free to express themselves.
Whatever jokes they throw in on the show are just that – jokes. But there are times when they joke with each other which, according to them, are sometimes true. But, this happens, only when they joke about each other.
The views and opinions of one host may be different from the others, but still they support each other. This is what makes their friendship one of a kind. To them, hosting It’s Showtime is not work, but bonding time for the family.
The Boobay and Tekla Show (TBATS) started off as a product of GMA ONE Online Exclusives and each episode has gained hundreds of thousands of views online.
Because of their online following, GMA Network has decided to finally give them a timeslot every Sunday, after Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. It will premiere on January 27.
Super Tekla has shared that before this, he was ready to go back to Cotabato as he felt like a failure and was embarrassed of himself.
“Ready na akong bumalik sa Cotabato. Babalik na ako sa bundok ulit kasi sobra akong na-depress noong mawala ako sa Wowowin.
“Pakiramdam ko, wala na akong pag-asa sa Maynila. Yung naging failure ako. Hiyang-hiya ako para sa sarili ko at para sa pamilya ko na umaasa sa akin.”
But when someone from the Network called him and informed him about the show with Boobay, he said that it was like an answered prayer.
“Pero siguro nga, narinig ng Diyos ang panalangin ko. Bigla akong tinawagan ng mga taga-GMA-7 at gusto raw nila akong kuning talent. Doon na nagsimula ang lahat. Naisipan na nilang gawin ang show na ito with Boobay.”
As TBATS Will be in the same timeslot as Vice Ganda‘s Gandang Gabi, Vice, Super Tekla expressed that they’re not planning to make it a competition because their main goal is to enjoy themselves.
“Para walang stress sa amin ni Boobay, mag-enjoy lang kami. May mga tao na ikukumpara talaga kami sa show ni Vice Ganda, pero hindi namin gagawing basehan iyon ni Boobay.
“Magpapasaya lang kami every Sunday night. Kung ano ‘yung kinatuwaan nila sa amin noong online show pa lang kami, dodoblehin namin para mas masaya at mas maaliw ang audience sa amin.”
So what’s should viewers look forward to?
“Marami kaming pasabog at mga big Kapuso stars ang ready nang mag-guest sa show namin ni Boobay,” he stated.
Comedian and It’s Showtime host Vice Ganda may have hinted about his interest in running for a political post in the future.
On Thursday, January 10, the Fantastica star revealed that he was actually offered to run for a senatorial position by one political party.
“Maraming kumukuha nga sa akin, eh. May kumuha sa aking partido [para] sa senador. ‘Sira-ulo ba kayo?’ Sabi, ‘Mananalo ka.’ ‘O, ngayon, ‘pag mananalo, tatakbo?’”
It came as he was having a banter with co-host Jhong Hilario, who happened to be a Makati City councilor.
He said that Jhong has been having difficulties with keeping his image from being a public official, he’s also and actor, dancer, and a noontime show host.
Vice then joked about running for the Presidency in the future.
“Kakandidato talaga akong presidente ng Pilipinas, promise. Dalawang eleksyon pa, kakandidato ako — presidente talaga agad.”
He faced the camera and said that if he wins, it only means one thing.
“Pag nanalo ako, isa lang ibig sabihin nu’n — sira-ulo talaga kayong lahat! Wala talagang kakwenta-kwenta ang mga bumuboto sa Pilipinas. ‘Pag nanalo pa naman ako talaga…”
The comedian added that he has been running his whole life and he just wants to rest. This is in reference to a popular joke comparing Vice to a horse.
Comedian and It’s Showtime host Vice Ganda shared the story of his and fellow fan and impersonator Anton Diva‘s visit to their ultimate idol’s home.
Vice recalled that he first saw Regine Velasquez in her concerts.
“Yung unang big concert niya na pinanood ko, Retro sa Folk Arts Theatre. Tapos nandun din ako sa Sunken Garden.”
But the most memorable moment was when they were in her home and was able to experience wearing her clothes.
“Pero ang ‘di ko talaga makakalimutan fan ako ni Regine tapos pinapunta niya kami nila ni Anton sa bahay niya, pinagsukat niya kami ng mga damit niya. That time, magkasize pa kami. Ang payat-payat ko pa nun. Eh ngayong mamang-mama na ako eh. Hindi ko na kayang isuot ‘yung mga damit niya.”
He added that Regine didn’t just make them wear her clothes, but also offered him to check which shoes fit so that they can take it home.
“Pinasuot niya ‘yung mga damit niya tapos pinasukat niya kung alin ‘yung kasyang sapatos sa inyo diyan, iuwi niyo. Mangiyak-ngiyak ako kasi ang laki ng paa ko. Size 10 ako. Si Anton nagwagi sa mga damit niya. Pero ako sobrang laking bagay na sa akin na nandodoon ako. Hanggang sa kwarto pinapasok niya kami. ‘Yung fan ha pinapasok niya sa bahay tapos pinapasok niya sa kwarto.”
He also gushed about Anton and how they’re such big fans of the Asia’s Songbird.
“Si Anton Diva kasi ‘yung kasabayan ko na super faney ni Regine. Sabay kaming pumipila sa mga concert niya. Sabay kaming nagkikipagtulukan sa mga pelikula niya. Sabay kaming bumibili ng album. Sabay kaming nagpapa-areglo ng kanta ni Regine.”
Vice then stated that he will be Regine’s fan “forever”.
“Fan pa din. I will forever be your fan. I will forever be excited to watch you, to see you, to hear you sing, to watch your performances. I will forever be a Regine Velasquez fan.”
It seems like the daily lives of Filipinos have stopped as almost everyone were tuned-in to the coronation night of Miss Universe 2018 that happened yesterday, December 17 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The ordinary citizens aren’t the only ones cheering for her, but the celebrities as well.
Here are some stars who posted their congratulatory messages to the newly crowned Miss Universe.

In an episode of It’s Showtime, comedian Vice Ganda expressed his frustration over getting blocked from dating app, Tinder.
During the Tawag ng Tanghalan segment on Wednesday, December 5, a contestant shared that she met her current partner online and Vice snapped, “Bad trip. Naka block ako sa Tinder eh!”
He continued and said that it may be the result of people mistaking her for a poser, thus reported her profile.
“Kasi ‘yung mga Pinoy, akala siguro nila poser. Ni-report ako nang ni-report, naka-block tuloy ako! Hindi tuloy ako maka-swipe right, bad trip!”
The comedian went on and said that it’s such a shame because he likes his display photo in the app and there has been a lot of foreigners talking to him.
“Ang ganda-ganda pa man din ng picture ko doon, ‘yung naka swimsuit ako sa Bohol. Ang dami kayang tsumitsika sa akin doon na foreigner!”
Co-host Anne Curtis suggested that he make a new account but Vice Ganda answered that it’s too late.
“Naka-block kasi ako talaga, e. Kahit ano’ng palit ko, hindi ko talaga siya mabuksan. Kailangan ng bagong e-mail.”
He then addressed the viewers, asking them to stop blocking him.
“Huwag niyo nga ako i-block! Ang dami rin kasing Vice. Ilalagay ko, ‘Vice Ganda – Ako Po ‘To.’”
