Amid the laughter in “Gandang Gabi Vice’s” seventh anniversary episode yesterday, June 3, Vice Ganda had an emotional moment talking about his family and “past self.”
It started when a photo of Vice’s late dad Reynaldo Viceral was flashed on-screen during the “Tanong Mo, Mukha Mo” segment with Boy Abunda, where the comedian had to ask a question for each person that was shown.
Vice related that he’ll ask his dad what he feels about him being gay, and that he’ll introduce his first girlfriend to him
“Kung nabubuhay siya, kung nakikita niya ako, sinubukan kong mag-girlfriend kahit hindi naman ako masyadong masaya dun, kasi gusto ko siyang mapasaya,” he said. “Bago ko ginawa ‘yung gusto ko… sinubukan ko muna gawin ‘yung gusto niya… Tay, tinry ko naman pong gawin ‘yung gusto mo, kasi gusto ko kayong mapasaya.”
Emotions continued to run high when a picture of Tutoy (https://starcinema.abs-cbn.com/2018/4/2/news/vice-ganda-ipinakilala-si-tutoy-sa-mundo-38126) was shown - Vice’s younger self.
The comedian shared that he’ll always be that young, wide-eyed boy - he can let go of Vice Ganda but he can never let go of Tutoy.
“Tutoy is my Nanay’s love. Tutoy is my Nanay’s source of joy. I will forever be Tutoy. I will always want to be Tutoy, I will always go back to Tutoy,” he said. “Kaya ayaw ko pang mawala si Tutoy, kasi hindi pwedeng mawala ‘yung kasiyahan ng Nanay ko. That’s the most important thing in this world. Kahit tanggalin na ng Diyos ang lahat… ‘wag lang ‘yung kasiyahan ng Nanay ko.”
Vice furthered that he’d love to go back in time and relive his childhood all over again. It didn’t matter that they didn’t have money before - the happiness he had couldn’t be bought.
“Mas pipiliin ko si Tutoy kesa kay Vice Ganda, kasi nung panahon ni Tutoy, mapayapa lang siya, simple lang siya, hindi kumplikado ‘yung buhay niya, pero masayang-masaya siya,” he said.
“Masaya rin naman si Vice Ganda… pero iba ‘yung saya ni Tutoy eh… walang bayad ‘yung saya na ‘yun eh.”
But apart from the cry fest “Tanong Mo, Mukha Mo” brought, it also led to a lot of laughs, like when Vice asked President Rodrigo Duterte a question.
“President Duterte, bukas ka ba sa posibilidad ng pagpapa-nose lift… Tutal sa’yo naman nanggaling ang ‘change is coming,’” he joked.
