Vice Ganda, with his trademark humor, refused to be called a “woman” during his banter with fellow “It’s Showtime” host Jhong Hilario, saying showbiz columnist Cristy Fermin wouldn’t be pleased to hear such a remark.

The TV hosts were discussing the breakup of the “EXpecially for You” contestants on the noontime show episode on Monday, May 21, after the guy said he had let the girl decide on whether they would fight for or end their relationship.


“‘Yun ang laging sinasabi ng mga lalake—’Ikaw, kung anong gusto mo.’ Pero ang totoo, gusto rin naman talaga nila ‘yon; para hindi sila magmukhang kalaban; para hindi magmukhang sa inyo naman talaga galing ‘yung dahilan kung bakit naghiwalay; para nasa amin ‘yung guilt,” Vice Ganda argued, looking toward Hilario who was standing beside him.


In response, Jhong reasoned out, “Ganyan naman kasi kayong mga babae…,” but before he was able to finish his sentence, the comedian cut him in a mocking tone, “Bakla ako, bakla ako!”

After eliciting cheers and laughs from fellow hosts and the studio audience, he continued, “‘Wag mong sasabihin ‘yan, magagalit si Cristy Fermin!”

“‘Hindi ka babae, Vice Ganda!’, sabi niya—bwak bwak bwak bwak bwak,” he quoted the columnist.

Hilario then tweaked his statement and said, “Ganyan kasi kayong magaganda…,” to which Vice Ganda and the rest of the audience seemingly agreed.

Vice Ganda was apparently quoting Fermin’s statement from November last year, which was her reaction after the actor-TV host alluded to her during an episode of the noontime show as well.


“Kumusta ka na, Cristy?” Vice Ganda asked a contestant named Cristy. “Anong pinagkakaabalahan mo, Cristy, bukod sa paggawa ng mga kasinungalingan?”

Responding through her show “Cristy Ferminute,” Fermin said, “Vice Ganda, hindi ka tunay na babae. Lalaki ka. Nagpapanggap ka lang na babae.”
