Veteran columnist Cristy Fermin and her co-hosts Rommel Chika and Wendell Alvarez believed that Vice Ganda would never respond to Joey de Leon’s swipe against their show “It’s Showtime.”
It can be recalled that Joey took a swipe against the opening number of “It’s Showtime” during their launch on GMA Network, which featured Vice riding a helicopter to the Kapuso station building.
“Ganito kaliit lang ang studio namin sa TV5, parang elevator pero 1,000 floors naman ang taas ng ibinigay nyong pagpansin sa amin…lagpas helicopter!” said Joey.
While Kapamilya fans encouraged Vice to respond to Joey, Cristy believed that the comedian was not ready to clash with the veteran host.
“Hindi niya papatulan si Joey de Leon,” said Cristy. “Kapag ginawa niya ‘yon, siya ang maghahalukay ng mga saradong baol, dahil kapag yan inisa-isa at pinatunayan ni Joey de Leon ay mahihirapan si Vice.”
“Nasaksihan ko po ‘yan dahil kay Willie Revillame, inakala niya na anak-anakan ko nga si Willie [kaya] kakampi ako, nako talaga ang patutsada sa akin, araw-gabi. Pero okay lang, hindi ko naman kasi ‘yun pinatulan,” she added.
Cristy was referring to the infamous feud between Joey and Willie in 2007, during the heat of the Eat Bulaga and Wowowee competition.
The veteran columnist also warned Vice if the comedian even attempted to respond to Joey.
Rommel also believed that Vice would never answer Joey’s swipe since E.A.T’s rating was higher than It’s Showtime.
