In an episode of Gandang Gabi Vice aired in 2014, Jodi Sta. Maria introduced her favorite stuffed toy.
In the interview, Vice Ganda opened up about dolls, related to Jodi’s film “Maria Leonora Teresa” which is about three possessed dolls. For the Unkabogable Star, some dolls look creepy “Parang may something ‘yung mata ng mga manika.” He’s more comfortable looking at fluffy stuffed toys.
From there, Jodi mentioned that she’s not really into stuffed toys but she has one favorite. It’s a Mickey Mouse stuffed toy that she got when she was “dalaga pa.”
Vice joked, “Hala! Baka may something na ‘yan. ‘Yung may buhay na siya, napamahal na siya sa’yo. Tingnan mo, ‘pag nawalay siya sa’yo, magagalit siya sa’yo, babalikan ka niya. Unti-unti nagkaroon na ‘yan ng damdamin, mahal na mahal ka na n’un.”
It’s so special that Jodi doesn’t want others touching it. The toy has never been washed, either, to which Vice quipped, “Mukha nga, eh. Hindi na-vacuum ‘yan ever. Kasi usually ang Mickey Mouse, puti ‘yan, eh…”
The The Broken Marriage Vow star said it has missing parts already, “Ngayon, wala ng ilong. Wala na rin ‘yung hat niya. Kasi, ginagawa ko sa kanya, ‘pag matutulog ako, hinahawakan ko siya tapos kinukutkot ko ‘yung dulo.”
