During the Saturday episode, Angelica Jane Yap compared her to situation to the one previously faced by Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu with Gerald Anderson.
It will be recalled that Kim and Maja used to be close to each other.
However, the two had a falling out after Gerald Anderson, Kim's ex-boyfriend, began wooing Maja who was then Kim's best friend.
Kim and Maja have already patched things up. The relationship of Gerald and Maja already ended as well.
Pastillas Girl narrated: "After two days, napansin ko na parang may something sa kanila ng kaibigan ko."
When Vice asked what level of friendship she had with the friend she's talking about, she answered, "Actually, pinakilala lang siya sa akin ng friend ko, pero during nung mga times na nagkakaroon kami ng problema ng ex ko, sa kanya ko talaga sinasabi lahat.
"So siya talaga yung nave-vent out-an ko, siya yung nag-a-advise ng mga gagawin ko.
"And then nagulat ako na all of a sudden, sila na. So parang wait lang, kaya pala parang kapag nagve-vent out ako, sinasabi niya na, 'Kung ganyan nararamdaman mo, hiwalayan mo na.'"
Angelica also admitted that she had a confrontation with her friend through a text message.
She recalled how she made the video that led to her nickname as Pastillas Girl.
In the course of her story, she suddenly compared what happened to her to the situation where Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu was before with Gerald Anderson.
"Ayun, yung video noong ginagawa ko siya, maayos na ako. Yung mga tao lang na nagko-comment na 'Ang lalim ng hugot ni Ate.'
"Oo, totoo, malalalim ang hugot ko, malalalim pa sa nilibing na patay.
"May hugot talaga yun kasi nasaktan talaga ako.
"Mas nasaktan ako ngayon na boyfriend siya ng bestfriend ko. Maja, di ba? Maja...Kim Chiu!
Her comparison drew laughter from audiences and even from the hosts.
"Pero hindi, okay na sila di ba? Okay na sila.
"Darating din yung time na magiging okay na kami.
"Akalain mo na nangyayari pala sa totoong buhay 'yon."
The noontime show hosts then volunteered to help Pastillas Girl find the new man who will help her move on.
Last Tuesday, September 15, the It’s Showtime hosts served as matchmakers when they presented two guys offering to become the Pastillas Boy of Pastillas Girl.
The first guy was Topher, an audience member who was present during the adVice Ganda segment.
According to him, he was instantly attracted upon seeing Pastillas Girl.
“Noong dumaan po siya dito, noong umupo po siya sa taas, nakita ko na po agad kasi nandito po ako sa harap.
“Tapos noong tinawag niyo po ako, tapos tumuntong po ako sa stage, nanginig na po ako. Hindi ko po alam kung paano ko po siya lalapitan.
The other one is “Bacolod Boy” Jessy, a guy from Twitter who really went to Manila just to meet Pastillas Girl.
In the September 15 (Tuesday) episode of the show, it was seen that he was rushing just to get to the studio and see Pastillas Girl.
“Noong napanuod ko po kasi si Pastillas Girl noong Monday, at saka nakita ko lang siya sa TV talagang na-in love ako agad sa kanya.”
Earlier today, a mystery guy named Evan said he will appearing on the September 16 episode of Showtime to personally meet Angelica.
In her Twitter account, Pastillas Girl said she is flattered by all the attention being given to her.
