During the press conference of the long-time running noontime show of ABS-CBN It’s Showtime, the Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda finally admitted that Ion Perez makes him happy.
He said: “Si Ion espesyal siya. Napapasaya niya ako, napapangiti, napapakilig niya ako.”
Though Vice and Ion have been rumored to be a couple for quite some time now, they never really confessed the real score between them. In line with this, Vice expressed his gratitude towards the fans for continuing support, despite being reluctant to state the truth about their relationship.
“Yung simpleng kasiyahan ko, na nararamdaman ko ang daming. Nagri-react, and daming nag-aabang kung anong susunod na mangyayari. Na-o-overwhelm ako at grateful ako sa inyong lahat, dahil masaya kayo sa kasiyahan ko, at hindi niyo iyon gustong kontrolin.”
Though he won’t confirm the real status of their relationship, Vice reiterated that he’s totally grateful for the unconditional love from his fans.
“May mga gusto kayong malaman, pero hindi niyo pakikialaman, Maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat, sa pagbibigay respeto na lang din doon sa damdamin namin. At masaya talaga ako na masaya kayo para sakin.”
Meanwhile, the co-hosts of Vice, Jhong Hilario and Vhong Navarro advised Ion to look after their “sibling” and never hurt him.
“Tandaan mo lang ha, kami ni Kuya Vhong mo, mga kapatid ni Vice. Alagaan mo, ingatan mo ‘to, kasi babasagin ‘to. Kasi pag nagmahal ‘yan, purong-puro. Ayoko nang mabasag muli.”
Ion respectfully responded to the advice of Jhong and Vhong. “Mahal na mahal ko ‘yan, Kuya.”
Vice denies the live-in rumor
To commemorate It’s Showtime 10th Anniversary, Vice was asked during a conference, if he’s living under the same roof with Ion. The Unkabogable star immediately denied this and stated: “Ay, hindi. Kanino galling ‘yan? Sinong source mo, may source ka ba o sa’yo lang nanggaling ‘yan?”
Jhong jokingly answered: “Hindi siya nakatira, nagri-rent lang.”
