In the local entertainment scene, Vice Ganda is arguably one of those celebrities with the most controversial and most colorful personal life, especially those concerning his off-cam relationships. Despite his efforts of keeping his relationships low-key, it is apparently impossible for him since he is one of the biggest and brightest stars in the country.
Besides, his co-hosts on It’s Showtime has been persistently teasing him about his links to a famous basketball player.
Thus, when photos and videos of him having a good time with pro cager Calvin Abueva spread like wildfire online, we all concluded that they were referring to the Phoenix Fuel Master in the PBA. In the Instagram stories the Unkabogable Star shares on his account, they are often spotted spending time together or with their friends in clubs, and there are also instances when Vice is seen watching his basketball games on the sidelines.
However, he debunked all the speculations during the special episode of Tonight With Boy Abunda, wherein he and the King of Talk had the chance to interview one another, telling him that the baller is not his boyfriend and he doesn’t even wish for their relationship to prosper into something romantic.

“Siya ‘yong isa sa pinakamalalapit kong nakakasama lately. Isa siya sa mga nakakapagpasaya sa akin. He makes me smile, he makes me laugh, he makes me happy,” Vice imparted.
He also shared how much he appreciates Calvin because he is one of his more prominent friends who is not ashamed to show their closeness as friends to the whole world by posting photos of them together on social media and casually shoot live videos of themselves hanging out together on Instagram Live.
Since he doesn’t want their bond to elevate to the next level, the It’s Showtime host asked everyone to let him enjoy the moment.
“Ibigay n’yo na sa akin kasi gusto kong maging masaya at nakukuha ko ‘yon sa pakikipagkaibigan ko sa kanya. At dahil sa kasiyahang nakukuha ko doon, parang mas humuhusay ako sa pagpapasaya ko sa inyo,” he stated.
