Here’s a little-known fact: former Streetboys members and now-“It’s Showtime” co-hosts Vhong Navarro and Jhong Hilario once had a falling out over actress Judy Ann Santos.
That’s according to Vice Ganda, who teased Navarro and Hilario about their past feud in the episode of the noontime program on Monday.
The topic came up when the comedian interviewed Tawag ng Tanghalan celebrity contender Lance Raymundo, with whom he co-starred in the 2008 TV series “Pieta.”
“Pieta’s” lead star was Ryan Agoncillo, who married Santos in 2009.
“Iyon ‘yung teleserye sa hapon ni Ryan Agoncillo na napang-asawa ni Judy Ann Santos na dating niligawan niyo ni Jhong!” Vice Ganda playfully told Navarro.
“Pero pareho kayo nabasted!” he said, drawing laughs from both Hilario and Navarro.
And in a recent episode of the show, Vhong, not shy anymore about that past of his life, revealed what actually made him fell in love with Juday before. Accordingly, he and Jhong both pursuing the actress created a tension in between them but he gave way.
He said this as he described what he liked about her, “Si Judy Ann kasi masarap kausap, napakabait. Tsaka Judy Ann yun, parang iba, na-inlab kami nung panahon na yun.”
Vice even teased him, “Nag-away pa kayong dalawa ang ending ang nagwagi si Wowie.”
Pertaining to Judy Ann chose chose Wowie De Guzman – her former love team to be her boyfriend.
That wasn’t the first time Vice Ganda candidly mentioned his co-hosts’ history involving Santos. In 2016, also on “It’s Showtime,” the comedy superstar went as far as claiming that their friction affected their dance group.
“Streetboys days, nag-away sila, muntik magkawatak-watak! Nag-away kayo, muntik pa kayo magsuntukan, ang gusto pala ng babae, si Wowie de Guzman!”
