Vice Ganda

MANILA – Vice Ganda shrugged off rumors that he has reconciled with his former boyfriend, whom he still refused to identify, weeks after the comedian opened up in a televised interview about their failed relationship.

In an interview with “The Buzz” aired on Sunday, Vice Ganda stressed that he hasn’t gotten back with anyone, adding that that he is just happy with his life right now.

“Wala akong nakabalikan. Basta masaya lang ako. Masayang masaya ang buhay ko,” he said.

Asked if there is someone who makes him happy, Vice Ganda said: “Basta. Basta masaya. Mas gusto ko maging private ngayon. Kasi naranasan ko talaga nung mga nakalipas na taon, pinilit ko maging private pero hindi pa rin kami nakaligtas. Ang dami pa ring nangyari. Mas gusto ko na talagang manahimik.”

The “It’s Showtime” host, however, assured his supporters that he is content with his life.

“Basta gusto ko lang ang alam nila, masya ako para masaya din sila kapag nalaman nilang masaya ako. I am so happy with all the people around me,” he said.

MMFF entry

Meanwhile, Vice Ganda finally addressed critics questioning the inclusion of the sequel to his hit movie “Praybeyt Benjamin” in the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival.

“Dedma na ako… lahat naman ng pelikula namin na-bash pero ano bang nangyari? Taon-taon kami naman ang highest grossing film. We are blessed. We should be very thankful,” he said.

Vice Ganda said he no longer wants to defend his movie.

“Yung tanong nila kung bakit pinasok ang 'Praybeyt Benjamin,' hindi kami ang makakasagot niyan. Ang makakasagot niyan yung mga opisyales na namili. Kung magse-self defense ako, parang pangit pakinggan. Ang dapat mag-explain niyan ay MMDA kasi sila ang pumili,” he said.

Co-produced by Star Cinema and VIVA Films, “Praybeyt Benjamin” was once the highest-grossing Filipino film of all time until its record was broken in 2012. Its sequel will again be helmed by director Wenn Deramas.
