Vice Ganda goes into fangirl mode over Alden Richards
Rivalries have always been a constant phenomenon in showbiz and inevitably, artists and fans alike usually get influenced, and divided, by the never-ending competition.
But recently, Vice Ganda proved that network wars cannot go between the real people in the shows that the networks pit against each other. Vice Ganda, who is with the Kapamilya network, gamely took a photo with Kapuso network’s Alden Richards.
At the recently concluded 48th Guillermo Mendoza Box Office Entertainment Awards, Vice Ganda was able to take the selfie shot with Richards. Vice Ganda uploaded the photo just a few hours ago via his Instagram stories.
The comedian could not help but shout out how “gwapo” (handsome) Richards is.
Vice Ganda and Richards belong to rival noon time shows, “It’s Showtime” and “Eat Bulaga”. The two shows have always been in a tight ratings battle against each other, but it was in 2015 that “Eat Bulaga” reached skyrocketing ratings, thanks to the AlDub kalyeserye love team of Richards and Maine Mendoza.
With the ratings of “Eat Bulaga” towering, as pushed by the phenomenal AlDub, the ratings of “It’s Showtime” plummeted, causing host Vice Ganda to admit defeat from “Eat Bulaga”. Back then, Vice Ganda appealed to fans of the rival shows not to fight, with the host even stating that in fact, the hosts of “Eat Bulaga” are the idols of the hosts of “It’s Showtime”. JB
