Kapuso comedian Betong Sumaya unhesitatingly exposed to public one of the most embarrassing moments he experienced as a celebrity.
KAMI learned that the hilarious revelation was made when the actor served as the guest in “Sarap ‘Di Ba” with Alden Richards.
According to Betong, a security guard in GMA-7 was not able to recognize him when he was about to enter the network’s premises.
He also stated that the guard-on-duty even asked for his Identification Card (ID) that was why he needed to explain who he is.
Meanwhile, in the middle of the interview, the security guard that the “Bubble Gang” actor was referring to suddenly went inside the studio.
He caught the attention of the show’s host Carmina Villarroel so a face-off between him and Betong happened.
Upon seeing the guard, the actor immediately asked if he knows that he is a celebrity in the Kapuso network.
He even funnily explained his previous and current works in GMA-7, including his stint as an “Executive Producer” of a show.
“Kuya, alam niyo po ba na artista ako? Kuya ako po si Betong po, pero puwede niyo po akong tawagin na Dingdong (Dantes). Puyat lang po,” the comedian quipped.
"Isa po akong artista. Nagsimula po ako bilang executive producer po ng Day Off po... hanggang sa unti-unti pong nangarap. Gustong lumabas na artista. Nung nakuha ko na ang pagiging artista ko, kayo naman po ang pumutol sa aking pangarap,” he added.
At the end of the hilarious face-off, Betong clarified that he has nothing against the guard and that he understood that he was just doing his job.
