Vice Ganda joked about getting slapped by Regine Velasquez because of Ogie Alcasid.
In the December 18 episode of “It’s Showtime”, Vice Ganda made the “Tawag ng Tanghalan” (TNT) segment memorable with another joke.
According to the host, he got slapped by the Songbird of Asia once, and the statement surprised his co-host, Kim Chiu, and the TNT contestant.
The topic started when the contestant mentioned that she once met Regine while she was rehearsing with a song originally sung by the legendary diva. She said that Regine tapped her shoulder and told her to give her best.
Vice Ganda immediately inserted his story about a not-so-good encounter with Regine. He said that while Regine caught the contestant rehearsing her song, he, on the other hand, was caught by the singer kissing with Ogie Alcasid. For that reason, he received a slap from her.
“Ako rin, eh. Pero hindi siya mabait. Naabutan niya kasi ako.” Vice started.
“Bakit? Anong nangyari?” Kim and the contestant asked.
“Sinampal niya ako.”
“Ay, bakit?!” Kim asked.
“Kasi naabutan niya kami, naghahalikan kami ni Ogie.” he answered.
Of course, no one believed the story as everyone knows the kinds of jokes the comedian usually throws.
Ogie Alcasid is one of the resident judges of "Tawag ng Tanghalan" for years now.
While Regine is married to Ogie, Vice Ganda is in a relationship with his co-host Ion Perez. Their love story also started in “It’s Showtime”.
It was in October 2019 when Vice admitted on national television that he and the so-called “Kuya Escort” of the noontime show are already in an official relationship.
Although the confession shocked the public, it was not really surprising since the two have been observed to be somewhat special to each other in the previous months.
Vice Ganda is among the most popular Kapamilya comedians. He has starred in several blockbuster movies, including “Praybeyt Benjamin”, “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy”, and “Fantastica”.
Days ago, Vice wowed the netizens with his elegant walk-in closet in his new house. In another report by KAMI, Vice Ganda's friend revealed that he can be short-tempered at work.
