Sitting on the plush chairs on the set of “Gandang Gabi Vice” is basically being in the hot seat with Vice Ganda. Last Sunday, it was Bela Padilla and Kim Chiu’s turn to be grilled by the TV host as they took on the “Tanong Mo, Mukha Mo” segment, where guests would have to come up with questions for whichever face is flashed on the big screen.

It was a battle of wit among the three stars. Sure, the Kapamilya comedian has the upper hand, but Bela and Kim were surprisingly just as good with their answers, err, questions. For instance, when John Lloyd Cruz’s picture appeared on the screen, Kim played it safe by asking him how he’s doing. (Obviously, the multi-awarded actor’s involvement in the game wasn’t a coincidence.
Everyone knows that prior to Ellen Adarna, John Lloyd was in a longtime relationship with Angelica Panganiban, who happened to be Bela and Kim’s close friend.)
“’Kamusta ka?’ Wala, ang tagal na naming siyang hindi nakikita. We miss him so much.”
When it came to Bela, she seemed more nervous and careful about her answer.
“Parang wala. Hindi kami close. Uhm… ‘nagi-ingat ka ba?’ Kasi ingat, ‘di ba?”

The remark, which was a reference to John Lloyd’s iconic line for Biogesic or perhaps an allusion to his girlfriend’s sudden pregnancy, had Vice roaring with laughter. For a while, the three acted like children and played around the studio.
After recovering from too much laughter, the Unkabogable Star then quipped:
“Gusto ko yung ‘nagi-ingat ka ba?’. That’s so witty. Kasi lagi siyang nagpapaalala sa ‘tin dati ‘di ba, “Ingat.” Ngayon, gusto mo malaman kung siya ba, nag-ingat. Kasi lagi niyang sinasabi niya lagi ingat, ikaw ba nag-ingat, parang gano’n.”

It’s been close to a year since John Lloyd has taken his indefinite leave of absence from ABS-CBN. Right now, he’s presumably occupied with his daddy duties to Ellen and their baby, and still hasn’t shown any interest in making his showbiz comeback.
