Vice Ganda went viral on social media because of his statement hinting his interest in appearing on one of Jessica Soho’s shows on GMA Network.
The comedian made the statement during the contract signing between ABS-CBN and GMA Network as part of the deal to air ‘It’s Showtime’ on GTV Channel.
“Napag-usapan namin ni Tita Cory (Vidanes), kasi siyempre magpu-promote. Sabi ko, meron lang akong request, since maggi-guest tayo sa ibang GMA shows, puwede ko bang i-request na mag-guest ako sa programang ito. Gusto ko lang lumabas sa programang ito, kung uubra lang.” said Vice.
However, showbiz columnist Cristy Fermin said that she got information that the award-winning journalist refused the idea of seeing the comedian who made fun of her in 2013.
She got the information from the make-up artist in Soho.
’I’m sure ‘Nay, Ms. Jessica Soho will decline. Pinsan ko ang make-up artist ni Ma’am Jessica, ayaw niya.’ Cristy said when reading the text from her source.
It can be recalled that Vice’s career was almost put to an end after making Soho, one of the most respected journalists in the Philippines, a topic of his joke.
While Soho ‘acknowledged’ the public apology made by Vice, the journalist refused to talk directly to the comedian, and netizens believed that the issue has still no closure.
“I sincerely hope and pray that this was done with the purest intentions and determination to put this issue behind us.” said Jessica.
