For Vice, friendship is the strongest kind of Love
Almost a week after news broke out that comedienne Vice Ganda had called it quits with his cager boyfriend, he said he is ‘Masaya, masaya lang. Ang saya ng life.’
Pressed last Sunday to explain more about his break-up by The Buzz hosts Kris Aquino, Boy Abunda and Toni Gonzaga, Vice said that the decision was mutual and that ‘the only way to keep him is to let him go.
‘kaya na namin pareho [mabuhay na magkahiwalay] dahil matalik kaming magkaibigan.’
To those who are confused by Vice Ganda’s statement, the comedienne clarified that he makes it a point to be friends with his exes: ‘Lahat ng naging exes ko, naging kaibigan ko.’ This is because for Vice, being friends with his exes is a sign of moving on from any bitterness. In fact, Vice’s reason for breaking up with his boyfriend is not because Vice has lost his love.
Instead, it’s because Vice would love for his ex to explore his opportunities more.
‘Single, pero hindi ako malungkot. Sabi nga namin, “We’re separated but we’re not apart.”’
The Buzz host Kris Aquino and Vice Ganda were bantering with each other during the interview on how different they were when it came to their exes. Vice said ‘Hindi kayo magiging friends [ng ex niyo] kapag may galit, may poot, may natitira sa ‘yong itim. [Ako] kasi nakaka-move on ako’ to which Kris answered ‘Ang ibig sabihin lang po, hindi ako marunong mag-move on, tama ka naman diyan.’
However, with the way Kris has changed her treatment of ex-husband James Yap, it seems Kris has also picked up a thing or two from being solid friends with Vice.
Kris and James separated bitterly in 2010 after 6 years of marriage. Some of Kris’ reasons for the failed relationship included falling out of love and communication problems. In 2013, the unpleasant break-up was further muddled when Kris filed a protection order versus James after she said he made unwanted sexual advances.
Despite all the problems, James and Kris reunited last month during their son Bimby’s advanced birthday party.
The two are now happy with their own flames, James with Italian girlfriend Michela Cazzola and Kris with Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.
