MANILA — Vice Ganda became emotional during the live episode of “It’s Showtime” on Thursday.
In the noon-time show’s segment, “AdVice Ganda,” a 67-year-old man sought Vice’s advice as the latter shared that he was longing for his grandchildren.
“Nalulungkot po ako at nangungulila dahil ‘yung mga anak kong tatlo, wala na ho rito. Nandoon po sila sa labas ng Pilipinas,” the participant named Benjamin said.
(I feel sad and longing because my three children are no longer here. They’re all out of the country.)
Vice Ganda turned emotional as he recalled his relationship with his late grandfather, Gonzalo Dacumos.
Dacumos died on Christmas Day last year at the age of 93.
Vice shared that his grandfather who decided to move back to his home province in La Union also suffered the same loneliness.
He broke down to tears when he said that he doesn’t want the same thing to happen to his mother, Rosario Viceral who was also in the studio audience.
“Hindi ko gustong maramdaman ‘yan ng nanay ko,” he said.
(I don’t want my mother to feel that.)
“I’m sorry,” a crying Vice Ganda told his mother.
“I am trying my best, pero minsan hindi ko talaga kaya (but sometimes, I really can’t) .I’m sorry. I’m trying as much as I can to make you proud… Kaya kitang mabilhan ng bahay, ng magandang kotse. Pero nahihiya ako na hindi kita mabigyan ng oras. (I can buy you a house, a nice car. But I am ashamed that I can’t give you my time.) I’m sorry,” he said.
