MANILA - Comedian Vice Ganda shared his thoughts on the controversy involving his "It's Showtime" co-host Vhong Navarro following a report that another woman filed a rape case against the actor-dancer.

"Sobra akong malungkot kasi stress ito para sa lahat. Hindi lang kay Vhong, sa pamilya niya, sa lahat ng mga taong nagmamahal sa kanya, sa mga malalapit sa kanya. At alam kong matagal ito bago matapos," Vice Ganda said in an interview on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" on Thursday.

"'Yung sapak, 'yung blackeye, 'yung gasgas, 'yung sakit ng katawan lilipas 'yan agad-agad ng ilang buwan, Pero 'yung trauma nito sa lahat ng sangkot, 'di natin alam kung kailan ito matatapos. Kaya I feel so bad for them, for him (Vhong), especially," added the comedian, who used to make jokes about Navarro on "It's Showtime."

Vice Ganda said it was Navarro's request to make him laugh while he is recovering.

Asked if it's true that the show's hosts are used to asking the help of staff to get the contact number of the person they like, the comedian replied: "Hindi ko pwedeng sabihin na gawain kasi hindi ko nakikita. Kasi ako hindi naman ako nagpapakuha kasi ibinibigay talaga nila sa akin."
