What started out as a joke he had initiated about losing a friend, ended up with Vice Ganda shedding a tear during the live episode of "It's Showtime" on Thursday.
During the noontime program's "Miss Q&A" segment, which he co-hosts with Anne Curtis, Vice Ganda drew the topic from the random question selected by the candidate.
The comedian feigned sadness in his exposition about losing his best friend, but soon Curtis and the contestant noticed that Vice Ganda was actually crying.
"Naiyak talaga ako," Vice Ganda said.
At one point, Curtis asked Vice Ganda what the name is of this "best friend" he had lost, but the "Gandarrapido" star only gave a playful, secretive smile.
