Hashtags member Ryle Santiago has given his sentiment on the issue surrounding the closeness of "It's Showtime" host Vice Ganda and another Hashtags member Ronnie Alonte.
In an interview with PEP last Friday, June 1, Ryle said, "Ang akin, bakit mamasamain kung ka-close mo ang katrabaho mo? Katrabaho naman namin lahat si Ate Vice, eh. Lahat naman kami kahit papaano may relationship kay Ate Vice. So, what difference does it make kay Ronnie?"
He furthered, "Kasi si Ronnie lang siguro ang una niyang pinaka-close, pinaka-nauna lang. Eh, lahat naman kami mahal ni Ate Vice."
Loisa, Ronnie's on-screen partner and rumored girlfriend, has also commented on the issue before, explaining that there really is no malice between Vice and Ronnie's friendship.

Meanwhile, Ryle was also asked if the two Hashtags members Jon Lucas and Bugoy Cariño will be back on "It's Showtime," because the two have been subject to an "indefinite suspension," as confirmed by Hashtag Jameson Blake last March.

Ryle answered, "Ang alam ko, oo [babalik sila], kasi 'pag tinatanong ko kung babalik ba, 'Puwede naman,' gumaganun sila. Lagi akong nangangamusta sa kanilang dalawa. Miss na miss ko silang dalawa, lalo na si Jon. Iba rin kasi ang pinagsamahan namin ni Jon. Nauna si Jon sa Hashtags, kaya, every now and then, nagpaparamdam ako sa kanya, nagme-message ako sa kanila, 'Miss ka na namin, miss na kita.'"
