For the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival, Vice Ganda recalled a past rift with his best friend Coco Martin.
As per the Unkabogable Star, it was just a petty fight between them that they decided not to speak to each other, but keep on reiterating about the issue with mutual friends.
Vice recalled, “Very minimal. Actually, tampuhan na hindi kami nag-usap, nag-artihan kaming dalawa. Yung may mga tampo ako sa kanya, tapos sinasabi ko lang sa mga common friends namin, tapos siya rin. Yung ipinararating namin sa ibang tao yung tampo namin. Tapos nagkita kami, wala.
“Yung mga kaibigan namin, parang ‘Sira-ulo yung dalawang ‘to. Okay naman sila, pero andami nilang chika. Kanya-kanya kayong sumbungan. Ganoon na yung relationship namin ni Coco.”
Last November 12, 2019, Vice and Coco accidentally met in a restaurant where the latter volunteered to pay for his best friend’s dinner.
Nilibre ako ng dinner ng bespren kong milyonaryo!!! Ang sayaaaaaa!!! Love you Dengdeng!!!!!

It was during that day that Coco admitted that he will always be the second-best next to Vice, which the latter denied. Aside from acting in and directing FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, Coco is doing the same for his MMFF entry 3Pol Trobol: Huli Ka Balbon with Jennylyn Mercado and Ai-ai delas Alas.
Vice narrated, “Sabi niya (Coco) okay na akong sumusunod sa pelikula mo, na first runner-up lagi. Sabi kong ganoon, uy hindi naman. Okay din ang first runner-up. Sabi ko nga ikaw nga ang gusto kong kamustahin. Ikaw ba humihinga ka pa ba? Nagdidirek ka ng Probinsyano, nagdidirek ka ng pelikula mo, ikaw din ang producer, ikaw din ang artista, ikaw na lahat, tapos ikaw din manonood, di ba?”
In everything that has happened in the past between the two, Vice is grateful that their friendship remains solid.
Back when Vice first received the offer to be one of the hosts in It’s Showtime, he called Coco immediately to share the good news.
He continued, “Kaya ang saya na nagkita lang kami. Hindi nawawala yung love, concern namin sa isa’t-isa. Kasi nung nagsimula kami dito, ganoon kami e. Magkasama talaga kaming dalawa sa lahat ng ginagawa namin.”
