Vice Ganda was one of the first talents whom Ogie Diaz managed.

Ogie took care of Vice's career for almost four years, but when they parted ways, they became civil to one another for roughly the same period of time.

They recently rekindled their friendship.

“Para na kaming mga gaga na naibalik namin ni Vice yung friendship talaga,” Ogie tells PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the mediacon of the movie Two Love You last October 30, 2019, at the Playhub Events Place in Quezon City.

He says of Vice, “Si Vice kasi, nagme-melancholia iyan kapag nag-iisa. Sobrang talino kasi ni bakla. Kung anu-ano naiisip niya.

"‘Bakit ganito ang tao sa akin? Bakit ganito ang tao sa kanila? Bakit sila sobrang malapit sa akin? Dahil ba sa posisyon ko?’

“May mga ganyan si Vice. Tinatanong niya ang sarili niya na siya rin ang sumasagot; sobrang talino kasi niya.

“Ang nakakatuwa, kapag magkausap kami ni Vice, 'Hindi ka Vice Ganda rito. Ikaw yung kaibigan ko dati pa sa comedy bar.'

“So ako, nakikinig siya sa akin."

Ogie says he has even encouraged Vice to have children.

He recounts, “E, eto na ang kadaldalan ko. Um-attend siya ng birthday ng anak ko, yung debut, sila ni Liza [Soberano] ang magkatabi.

“Sabi ko, e, ‘Mag-anak ka na.’ ‘Teh, hindi ko kaya!’ Sabi ko, ‘Mag-anak ka na. Tumatanda ka na. Ilang taon ka na, 45, 46?’

“Sabi niya, ‘Ayoko naman na ako ang aalagaan ng anak ko pagdating ng araw.’

“Sabi ko, ‘Noon mo pa inisip iyan, ah. Kung noon mo pa ginawa, hindi mo na naisip iyan.’ Sabi niya, ‘Hindi ko talaga kaya.’

‘E, sagot ko, ‘Iyan din ang sinabi ko noon. Naka-five ako.’ Sabi niya, ‘Teh, hindi ko naman kayang gumanun! Ikaw, nakaya mo.’

“Sabi ko, 'Hindi naman kailangang gumanon ka. Puwede namang yung sperm mo, itatama doon sa egg na gusto mo.'”

OGIE ON HOW FATHERHOOD CHANGES YOUR LIFE

To further encourage Vice, Ogie tells him about the good things that happen in life when you have your own child.

Ogie says, “Mag-iiba ang perspective mo sa buhay kapag nagkaanak ka. Even your jokes, mag-iiba.

"Yung alam mo na kung paano magiging tatay. Kino-convince ko talaga si Vice. ‘Pag-iisipan ko,’ sabi niya.

“Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Tandaan mo, kapag ikaw, sikat na bading, 'tapos namatay ka, makakalimutan ka na ng mga tao.

"'Pero kapag may iniwan kang buhay na monumento, meron kang buhay na alaala, maaalala ka nila through that person.

“'Mami-meet nila iyan. Iyang anak mo ang magpapakilala sa kanila.'"

He even cited Joel Cruz, the godfather of Ogie's third child, as an example.

Joel has eight children.

Ogie says, "So, sabi niya, ‘Pag-iisipan ko talaga iyan, teh. Actually, kahit iyung mga friends ko, sinasabi nila na mag-anak ako. Kasi nga, nagawa ni Joel Cruz, ‘di ba?’

“Hindi naman ikaw ang mag-aano... magj*j*kol ka lang naman.”

Ogie has gone so far as to recommend going to Thailand, where photos of preserved eggs from lawyers, doctors, and summa cum laude graduates are shown.

He told Vice, "Para yung genes, mahawa. E, ikaw, napakatalino mo. E, di ba, makikita mo ang sarili mong anak kahit na hindi ka nakipagdyugs.

“So, pinag-iisipan daw niya.”

OGIE ON VICE GANDA'S BOYFRIEND ION PEREZ

Now that they are friends again, what can Ogie say about Vice's boyfriend, Ion Perez?

“Si Ion? Mabait yung bata!” Ogie exclaims.

“Sobrang bait at sobra siyang mahal. At saka si Ion, kapag alam niyang masaya si Vice, masaya siya.

"At nakakatuwa si Ion, nagbantay talaga siya kay Vice sa hospital.”

He tells PEP.ph that Vice did not need to ask for his advice when he opened his relationship to the public.

“Saka na-timing-an naman niya, o, sino ang kumuwestiyon? May nandiri ba? Wala naman.

“Iba na ang panahon ngayon, ‘no? Kahit nga ma-in-love ka sa aso, e, happiness niya yun, di ba? Eh, ito pa kayang sa tao?"

Ogie also gives insight on what Vice looks for in a partner.

“At saka, ang gusto ni Vice kasi sa lalaki, hindi siya tinitingnan as Vice Ganda. Ayaw niya, nao-off siya.

“Kaya nga naloloka siya kapag may lalaki na, ‘Wala akong pakialam kahit Vice Ganda ka.’ Mas gusto niya yung ganun.

“Ayaw niya ng huma-hallelujah sa kanya.”

Some people are bashing Ion, saying that he is only after Vice's money. What does Ogie think of this?

“Hindi, dyusko! Kung makaraket ngayon si Ion, ha, ang taas ng rate niya. Ang taas ng rate ni Ion sa provincial show.

“Kaya natutuwa si Vice na ang taas ng rate ni Ion.

“Pero generally speaking, ang bakla, kapag nagbigay kasi, gusto nila yun, ha.

"Happiness nila yun. Walang makakapigil sa kanila.”
