‘It’s Showtime’ hosts cursed?

Chuck Smith - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines – Netizens have noticed that the hosts of ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show “It’s Showtime” have been in involved in major showbiz controversies the past year.

It can be remembered that Vice Ganda was criticized for a joke he did on GMA-7 news personality Jessica Soho summer last year, while Billy Crawford became a hot topic when he broke up with Nikki Gil July of last year. Coleen Garcia was also linked in the Billy-Nikki when she was rumored to be the cause of the ex-couple’s breakup.

Anne Curtis’ nightclub breakdown made news last December.

Recently, Vhong Navarro became news of national interest when he claimed he was mauled by a group of men, including businessman Cedric Lee, after visiting the condominium unit of student Deniece Cornejo in Taguig City on January 22.

Netizens on social media are wondering: with these controversies, is there a “curse” among the hosts of “It’s Showtime”?

But Vice believes the series of unfortunate events among “It’s Showtime” co-hosts is merely a coincidence and not a curse or a streak of bad luck.

“Siguro, magkakasaman kami sa isang program o hindi, meron at meron namang mangyayaring maganda at hindi magaganda sa aming lahat,” he told members of the press, including Philstar.com, in an interview recently.

“Nagkataon lang na nagkasama-sama kami pero hindi kasi ako naniniwala sa ganun,” Vice added.

“Lahat ito ay may dahilan kung bakit nangyayari. At hindi lang sa amin kundi sa ibang tao, nangyayari rin naman yun. Nagkataon lang na magkakagrupo kami.”

The comedian said he continues to support Vhong amid the scandal.

“Na kay Vhong ang suporta ko bilang kaibigan. Sinusuportahan ko siya na para hindi siya panghinaan ng loob, sinusuportahan ko siya na lahat ng mga nangyaring ito ay makakabangon siya, at sinusuportahan ko siya na lahat tayo, siya mismo, may matutunan sa pangyayaring ito,” Vice said.

What’s the lesson Vice learned from the incident? “Ang lesson lang ay mag-ingat. Mag-ingat tayong lahat, sa lahat ng ginagawa, sa lahat ng pinupuntahan at nakakasalamuha natin. Mag-ingat tayong lahat.”

Anne Curtis also expressed her support for the “It’s Showtime” host.
